Today, unprecedented national attention is being focused on early childhood development. Policy makers, educators, and concerned citizens across the country are working to ensure that all children have the early experiences necessary for health, well-being, and optimal learning. In 1997, two White House conferences focused on early childhood—one on recent research on brain development, and a second on early childhood care and education. Both helped to fuel increased public conversation and action, from the halls of government to grass roots community organizations. Lawmakers in at least 20 states have voted to expand funding for programs that serve preschool children. Officials in some states are supplementing federally-funded Head Start programs with state dollars because only 40 percent of the children eligible for the program are actually receiving services. Other states have appropriated funds for pre-kindergarten programs for all children, regardless of family income. The current focus on early childhood is by no means limited to the three- to five-year-olds who are typically thought of as “preschoolers,” or to school-age children between the ages of five and eight. Early childhood education begins the moment a child is born. Recent neuroscientific research on infant brain development has provided reinforcement for what psychologists and educators have long believed: that experience in the first three years of life has a powerful influence on life-long development and learning.

YouTube is a fantastic way to keep your kids entertained with a tablet or smartphone, but it’s also a little concerning. You just never know if your child will end up using the suggested videos feature to jump from Sesame Street’s Elmo to a drunk Elmo parody, or view inappropriate advertising.

Google is aiming to solve that problem with a new app called YouTube Kids available on Monday for Android and iOS. The Kurio and nabi kids’ tablets will also receive the app in the coming weeks.

Early reports about the app surfaced late last week, but details were a little thin. Now that the app is available we can say that at first glance this app should appeal to parents and kids alike.

Sketchnoting, in its purest form, is creating a personal visual story as one is listening to a speaker or reading a text. I also believe the interactive notebook, which includes the process of taking "regular" notes" while listening to a speaker and later creating a sketchnote of the text notes, would also be considered sketchnoting. This page will provide links, ideas, tips,and research evidence dealing with the power of sketchnoting.

What Makes an ‘Extreme Learner’?

What Makes an ‘Extreme Learner’? | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Cueva-Dabkoski is considered an “Extreme Learner,” a designation applied to just 12 individuals by the Institute for the Future, for her radical and gutsy approach to learning. Extreme Learners are self-directed, wide-ranging in their interests, comfortable with technology, and adept at building communities around their interests.

“Extreme learners aren’t so different from everybody else,” said Milton Chen, a fellow at the Institute for the Future and advocate for education reform. “We picked people who are extreme in their passion for learning.” They are also willing to go their own way when traditional educational institutions interfere with their pursuits.

TEACHers, EDUcators SHOULD get reduced in teaching classes for a certain time AND following Professional Development courses by experienced coaches during that time… These experienced coaches (from inside or outside the school) could get named “Key Instructors” or something else. Once THEY know it by PracTICE it’s THEIR role to give “Professional Development” courses to other teachers, educators.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Excerpt:A revolution in the classroom:Check facts: probably the most common use of all. Both students and teachers can now find facts within seconds. This can be very useful when explaining and debating topics.Take photos: mobile phones can be used as cameras to illustrate work and presentations.Make videos: similar to the last point. For example, videos can be used to record experiments and later include them in projects.Carry out tests: this is probably one of the most interesting and revolutionary uses of the mobile phone in the classroom. Students can now take quizzes and tests on their mobile phone that were created earlier by their teacher. In this way, teachers can gain valuable real-time insight into the knowledge of their students and the effectiveness of their teaching. To implement this technique now, download the ExamTime Mobile App for iOS or Android.Read the news: many teachers often include news articles as part of their teaching methods (for example, in Economics). With an endless amount of news gathering mobile applications, you can bring news and current affairs into the classroom in an instant.Dictionary: there are a multitude of dictionary applications that allow you to check the meaning of a word instantly.Translator: again, this can help with meaning and explanation of a foreign word just like the dictionary application.Click title to read more.....

Principled Leadership from Otto Scharmer "The current crisis in higher education has three characteristics: it's overpriced, out of touch (with society's real needs), and outdated (in its method and purpose). But the solution, a true 21st-century model of higher education, is already emerging: it's free (or accessible to everyone), it's empowering (putting the learner into the driver's seat of profound personal, professional, and societal renewal), and it's transformational (providing new learning environments that activate the deepest human capacities to create -- both individually and collectively)."
