Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

"It's going to be really awesome for the kids," predicted parent Joanna Chavez, who has an eighth-grader and sixth-grader at the school. "Everything they do now is with electronics. They can't wait to get them."

District officials said the comprehensive distribution process, with about 6,200 iPad minis given out at middle schools throughout St. Vrain, was designed to give students and their parents a solid overview now that every middle schooler will be using the devices in classes.

"We're very intentional in making this a very open process," said Joe McBreen, the district's chief information officer.. "We're all in this together to educate our kids and empower them for the 21st century."

He said the iPad distribution is part of an overall plan to get the best technology into the hands of students and reduce the growing digital divide between students who have access to technology at home and those who don't.

"Learning should happen any time, any place," he said.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

All art teachers and media literacy instructors should check this link out! This is some very straight talk about the power of media and implies the dangers of allowing society to remain visually illiterate.


Excerpt:

"To update civics education for contemporary learners, we try to blend media literacy with election politics, to communicate the power of logos, advertisements, and videos in marketing national candidates. The nuanced ability to decode shades of meaning in fonts and posters lies in the key literacy of graphicacy. It also reinforces the practice of pedagoptics, which is a method of teaching with visual tools. Click here to check out some lesson ideas for using election logos in the classroom."

John Gougoulis's curator insight, Today, 3:34 AM

An absolutely significant skill in any research or investigation, for educators and learners in the digital age - the curation of content- with a clear focus or question in mind, the capacity to target a search field, sift through, reflect on and make decisions about the most suitable resource or evidence to use. What a great learning experience.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Excerpt:

“The career choices from the year 2020 (and beyond) amplify and explore trends already at play in the world of 2014,” said Haldenby. Many technologies already out there today give us “glimmering glimpses of the world of tomorrow,” he said.

These jobs will challenge students and recent grads to develop skills around media literacy, digital design and storytelling. “People will remain hungry to learn and explore, and technology will continue to play an even greater role,” he said.

Today’s students will help create tomorrow’s jobs

When it comes to the jobs of the future, much of it will be dictated by the passions, skills and interests of today’s students. The so-called Generation Z kids (those born after 1995, now 18 years old and younger) have already been declared entrepreneurial and ambitious.

Data compiled in June by New York-based advertising agency Sparks & Honey showed that 76 per cent of Gen Z want their hobby to turn into a full-time job. Sixty per cent want a job that creates social change.
