10 Blended Learning Trends | Technology | Scoop.it
Blended learning can tick a lot of boxes for a lot of different teachers who teach in potentially quite different scenarios.

There's a great infographic included in this article that would be useful as a tool to share with teachers. That said, as I was reading the article I couldn't help but think about how this idea of blended learning, experimentation, creating, and flexibility fits into the new teacher evaluation systems that take test scores at face value to determine teacher effectiveness. Will it kill the kind of creativity and experimentation discusses in this article?

The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy

The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy | Technology | Scoop.it
Many teachers have added ‘digital literacy’ as number four on the list of literacies their students should have (or be working towards, in most cases). Reading, writing, and math are now followed by digital literacy.

I love this list: cultural, cognitive, constructive, communicative, confident, creative, critical, and civic. I think my fave right now is "critical"

Depth of Knowledge Information

Depth of Knowledge Information | Technology | Scoop.it

Depth of Knowledge is the degree of depth or complexity of knowledge standards and assessments require; this criterion is met if the assessment is as demanding cognitively as the expectations standards are set for students.

DOK is NOT.....
about Verbs - Verbs are not always used appropriately.
about "difficulty" - It is not about the student or level of difficulty for the student - it requires looking at the assessment item not student work in order to determine the level. DOK is about the item/standard - not the student.

DOK is....
about what FOLLOWS the verb. What comes after the verb is more important than the verb itself.
about the complexity of mental processing that must occur to answer a question.

Remember DOK...
Descriptive, not a taxonomy
Focuses on how deeply the student has to know the content in order to respond.
Not the same as difficulty.

Webb's Depth of Knowledge (DOK) provides a vocabulary and a frame of reference when thinking about our students and how they engage with the content. DOK offers a common language to understand "rigor," or cognitive demand, in assessments, as well as curricular units, lessons, and tasks.

Grit: The Other 21st Century Skills

Grit: The Other 21st Century Skills | Technology | Scoop.it

"Due to the interest of my post The Other 21st Skills, I decided to discuss individually each of the skills or dispositions I proposed that are in addition to the seven survival skills as identified by Tony Wagner. This post focuses on grit."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 1, 2013 9:15 PM

Are you interested in learning more about how grit is a 21st century skill? Jackie Gerstein provides an in-depth look at grit in this post. You will find an image with a great definition, a TED Talk by Angela Duckworth on grit, as well as a link to a quiz that allows you to measure your grit level compared to others, and a list of some of the "characteristics or dispositions of Grit."

Perhaps you are asking yourself how can I work grit into my classroom? 

For example, project based learing, or having students work on independent study projects (think passion-driven) provide opportunities for students to use some of the dispositions discussed, such as tenacity, self-control, self-discipling and long-term goal oriented. 

As always, there is a robust list of additional resources.

What do you feel are the key digital literacy skills that 21st century learners need?

What do you feel are the key digital literacy skills that 21st century learners need? | Technology | Scoop.it

Digital literacy has become one of the major issues facing educators in this early part of the 21st century. The need to develop students and teachers digital literacies has become increasingly accepted as fact and yet most teachers' and students' understanding of what exactly constitutes a digital literacy still seems to remain quite vague. Even more vague seems to be teachers' understanding of how precisely we go about developing those literacies.

The exposure to this 'social quizzing' app was alone worth the read.  You won't be surprised to find out what is the #1 response, and the final response is unintentionally funny to me - it received 0 votes.
