Technology Integration in Education #1: Twitter

Technology Integration in Education #1: Twitter | Technology | Scoop.it
I am writing a series of blog posts related to the integration of technology in the classroom. Each blog post will include practical examples of how to use a specific tool and integrate it into you...

 

We are living in revolutionary times. It is urgent that we think of education, children and teaching differently from the past. The classroom needs to be a place of innovation where students are able to connect with others, feel empowered and curious and have a say in their learning. Technology provides us with tools to expand our minds and extend our reach (Sir Ken Robinson, 2014).

Mientras nosotros los docentes (cosa que personalmente no comparto!) estamos pensando que las redes sociales y la tecnología distraen al estudiante....ellos las utilizan y se forman!!! ....de modo que quién se esta quedando atrás???

Three Great Text to Speech Tools for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology | Scoop.it

"Are you tired of reading texts ? Here are three great free Chrome extensions that you can use to have text read to you. All of these extensions are free and are easy to use. I started the list with Announcify which is my favourite among them all but the two other add-ons are pretty good as well. Try them out and share with us what you think of them."

Has Education arrived in the 21st Century yet?

Has Education arrived in the 21st Century yet? | Technology | Scoop.it

This interesting table, comparing 20th and 21st Century learning, was conceived by William Rankin, a well credentialed doctor of Education from ACU, Texas.

 

This graphic, which I found on Educational Technology and Mobile Learning, was originally published on iThinkEd in 2007, where you can read Rankin’s full thoughts that led to his creation of this table.

 

What’s fascinating for me is the fact this was written 7 years ago. It doesn’t date the message. It challenges us as educators to reflect on how far we have actually progressed.

 

I started hearing the talk about 21st Century Learning back in the 90s and here we are in 2013 and, looking at this chart from Rankin, we have to ask ourselves; for all the talk and planning, have we really moved out of the 20th Century and embraced what this nebulous concept of 21st Century is really about?

I do agree with Katie that is it scary that education as we know it is going to start changing. It is really scary to think that the American people don't like change but it is happening all the time with education. There are pros about this education change and there are cons. Let's take the cons and turn them into pros.
