Schools that seem themselves as connected to the "real world" would understand the needs that exist. Instead, we have buried ourselves in a false dichotomy that the world exists outside schools.

David M. Schwartz, Ph.D., ABPdN's curator insight, December 18, 2:13 PM

Most educators are familiar with Bloom's Revised Taxonomy. Many of those same educators have begun integrated BYOD strategies into their classrooms and school districts. A common concern among these educators is how to integrate Bloom's Revised Taxonomy with the power that the new technology provides. This article was originally published in March of 2014, but it is still relevant.

20 Apps and Tips to Help Students Study Better ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

20 Apps and Tips to Help Students Study Better ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology and Teaching | Scoop.it
It is amazing how much technology can do for students to enhance their learning and personal development. I wish we had these tech affordances when we were students, things could have been much easier. Technology, however, is only effective when it is leveraged in the right way and to the right purposes. The first step in the effective use of technology is to have access to the educational tools available out there. This is usually a daunting task as the web is teeming with all kinds of tools and it could take you forever to find, assess and evaluate the tools you want to use. To this end, the folks in Open Colleges have compiled this excellent list featuring 20 educational apps and gadgets. Students can use these tools to perform a variety of learning tasks from writing and researching to managing their time efficiently.  Together with these apps there are also some handy study tips for students to boost to their creativity. I spent sometime going through these tips and found them really worth a share here.

The 11 Skills Underlying 21st Century New Literacies ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The 11 Skills Underlying 21st Century New Literacies ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology and Teaching | Scoop.it
The second major shift emerges with the uptake of the social networking sites and participatory technologies. Now, we no longer talk about a single literacy but multiple literacies. Literacies take many forms and encompass a varied body of social skills and cultural competencies. In their popular white paper "Confronting The Challenges of Participatory Cultures" Jenkins et al talked at length  about the development of these new literacies and how they come to shape the new learning forms that take place in the virtual space. According to Jenkins et al, these new literacies involve several social skills that are developed through collaboration and networking.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, November 29, 1:15 PM

This overview article lists 11 literacy skills that resonate with me. As an online educator they all apply to my work. However the three that most closely describe the program I work in are:


6- Distributed cognition:
The ability to interact meaningfully with tools that expand mental capacities.


7- Collective intelligence:
The ability to pool knowledge and compare notes with others toward a common goal.


10- Networking
The ability to search for, synthesize, and disseminate information.


I learn by teaching. My life as an educator has prepared me to be 21st Century Literate.

Personalized Learning Visually Explained for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology and Teaching | Scoop.it
One of the biggest affordances of technology is towards the enhancement of the concept of personalized learning. Internet and more particularly web 2.0 technologies and mobile apps have provided learners with unprecedented opportunities to learn whenever, wherever, and however they want. At its core, personalized learning is all about tailoring the available resources in order to meet personal learning needs. On a macro educational scale, personalized learning addresses different teaching strategies and instructional methods that focus on the adjustment and leverage of the curricula and teaching materials to help meet a diverse set of students learning needs and interests.

MOOCs Aren’t Revolutionizing College, but They’re Not a Failure | Technology and Teaching | Scoop.it
Pritchard still questions the effects MOOCs will have; for one thing, he doesn’t see how they can have a sustainable business model on their own. But that doesn’t mean MOOCs are merely another overhyped technology. Ideas about what they offer, and whom they might help, are evolving as rapidly as the MOOCs themselves.

Heejoon Ahn's curator insight, December 17, 9:40 PM

The usage of technology such as the iPad is used to help students communicate with their educators, practice their writing, or to even practice their control over their muscles and hand-coordination. Many students with special needs sometimes take a long time to finish a simple task such as pressing a button on the screen, and the iPad is another technology which can make the task enjoyable.

The Significance of Educational Technology History and Research

The Significance of Educational Technology History and Research | Technology and Teaching | Scoop.it

"At a time when emerging technologies are expected to have widespread impact on education, it is significant to remember the fields closely associated with educational technology (e.g., instructional design, cognitive psychology, the learning sciences, etc.) are neither new, nor without a research base. These fields evidence-based insights into how and under what conditions people learn. When I read educational technology pioneers claim "the education system has not changed in hundreds of years," pioneers who otherwise have insightful ideas to improve education, I am convinced that what we need-what higher education leaders, policymakers, entrepreneurs, and grant-making agencies need, are reminders—tattoos of sorts—that the use of technology in education has a long and rich history."

The Evolution of Learning Technologies

Human beings have always been seekers of knowledge. The minute we discover something new, we want to share it with others and move onto the next achievement. Since the beginning of recorded history (and probably before) we have always strived to discover the mysteries of the planet, of Earth and of ourselves. How has learning evolved over the course of human history and what might the future hold for us?

This is an interesting approach. I am still not clear whether critical digital literacy is part of critical theory, but it does not seem to be. It should be in the sense that the etymological roots of persona suggests the masks we wear and the roles we play in life. What does that mean when we manage our online persona? Is it a free-for-all?
