Pedagogy is essential in a world that is changing as rapidly as our world. How we use our digital tools, the Internet, and social media is essential to good digital citizenship. Technology is a thoughtful conversation with, through, and about our tools.

Rethinking information literacy through understanding disciplinary information practices @edwardluca #i3rgu

Rethinking information literacy through understanding disciplinary information practices @edwardluca #i3rgu | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
The next session I attended at the i3 conference was Edward Luca (an academic librarian at the University of Sydney) on Truly embedded librarianship: rethinking information literacy through understanding disciplinary information practices in higher education.
Starting as a subject librarian in pharmacy, his question to the literature was "how can we embed information literacy within a disciplinary context". The conclusions seemed to be that information literacy was genrally left to librarians, and that is was dominated by one-shot sessions, which may not be contextualised. He noted that the solution to this was often aiming to tie the IL education to student needs for assignments. However, there did appear to be a lack of real collaboration between librarian and faculty.
The value of "embedded" librarianship was seen as it being user-oriented, with closer collaboration, with sometimes even physical embedding within a department. Luca moved on to look at varying information practices within disciplines, and relating information literacy to that.

Can technology replace teachers? You asked Google – here’s the answer

Can technology replace teachers? You asked Google – here’s the answer | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Anxiety about losing your job to technology is both a rational and growing fear. Andy Haldane, the chief economist at the Bank of England, recently estimated that 15m jobs in the UK were threatened by automation. Technology is reaching such levels of sophistication that it is capable not only of manual tasks but cognitive ones too, putting a wide range of jobs are at risk. The areas most vulnerable include driving and administrative work. But according to a report from Oxford University that looked at over 700 areas of work, teaching at all levels across the educational spectrum is a safe bet.

"The best teachers will use technology in the classroom as part of an expanding toolkit, and hopefully they’ll see the benefits of smarter technology in the form of reduced clerical work. Classrooms will continue to change shape, but it’s safe to assume that there will be a human teacher at the front of them for a long time yet."

Teaching is a performance.

How To Weave Growth Mindset Into School Culture

Students also talk about the definitions of fixed and growth mindsets and then talk through various challenges from each perspective. When the school year starts, those lessons continue in the classroom. Every teacher in the Health and Medicine Academy has read Carol Dweck’s book, “Mindset,” and has discussed how to implement it in their classrooms. The school has moved to standards-based grading to emphasize that mistakes are part of learning and that understanding will come.

School burnout and engagement profiles among digital natives in Finland: a person-oriented approach: European Journal of Developmental Psychology: Vol 13, No 6

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, June 28, 7:51 AM

ABSTRACT

Applying a person-oriented approach, this study set out to examine what profiles

of school engagement and school burnout (i.e., exhaustion, cynicism, inadequacy)

can be identified among elementary school children at age 12, a generation also

often referred to as the generation of digital natives. We compared the group

memberships in their use of socio-digital technologies and related functioning as

we expected to find a gap between some digital natives and current educational

practices which do not include socio-digital technology in feelings of cynicism

towards school. Latent profile analysis identified five groups: Engaged (50%)

students, who formed the majority; Stressed (4%) students, who reported high

exhaustion and high inadequacy as a student; Students High in cynicism (burnout

group) (5%) with high scores on all the components of school burnout, particularly

cynicism, but also on exhaustion and inadequacy as a student; students Moderate

in Cynicism (15%), whose cynicism was directed in particular towards studying and

school; and, finally, students Emerging Cynicism (bored group) (26%), whose feelings

of cynicism were nevertheless elevated. These results thus revealed that almost

half (46%) of the elementary students felt some degree of cynicism towards school,

thereby supporting our gap hypothesis: these groups of cynical students reported

that they would be more engaged at school if socio-digital technologies were

used at school. These results indicate that one way to promote the engagement

of cynical students might be to offer them the possibility to make greater use of

socio-digital technologies at school.

How Silicon Valley Pushed Coding Into American Classrooms | Natasha Singer | NYTimes.com

How Silicon Valley Pushed Coding Into American Classrooms | Natasha Singer | NYTimes.com | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

At a White House gathering of tech titans last week, Timothy D. Cook, the chief executive of Apple, delivered a blunt message to President Trump on how public schools could better serve the nation’s needs. To help solve a “huge deficit in the skills that we need today,” Mr. Cook said, the government should do its part to make sure students learn computer programming.

“Coding,” Mr. Cook told the president, “should be a requirement in every public school.”

The Apple chief’s education mandate was just the latest tech company push for coding courses in schools. But even without Mr. Trump’s support, Silicon Valley is already advancing that agenda — thanks largely to the marketing prowess of Code.org, an industry-backed nonprofit group.

Implementation: Follow-up Is the Secret to Effective Delegation

Implementation: Follow-up Is the Secret to Effective Delegation | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Strong leadership isn't just about delegating tasks; it is also about following up on those tasks and making sure they are done to your standards. People on my team sometimes feel like I ride them until things get done. However, I've learned the hard way that if you don't, things all too often get pushed aside. You have to keep reminding, checking and rechecking until you know things have been done the way you want. This is not obsessive-compulsive. It's called experienced.
