Daniel Hurt's curator insight, February 6, 11:46 AM

Google docs are used in the workplace frequently so co-workers can collaborate.  Collaborative learning is something we all need to be interested in for our future classes!

Karen Barlow's curator insight, April 9, 6:35 AM

The advantages of incorporating software/apps such as Google docs into classroom are almost mind blowing.  Google docs offers a fantastic opportunity to transform written or typed assignment into a live document that can be typed, submitted, marked, shared, incorporated with brain storm activities, all on-line. A truly paperless classroom.

What’s Our Vision for the Future of Learning?

What’s Our Vision for the Future of Learning? | Technology in education | Scoop.it
“ Author David Price writes: "If schools are coming into direct competition with the learning opportunities available in the informal social space, it has to be said that this is a pressure, which barely registers within the political discourse.” In the following pages, Price describes three cases across the globe — in London, Sydney, San Diego — that have mapped a vision that answers the questions above. Here’s what they have in common: - By insisting that their teachers and mentors share their learning, all three have de-privatized teaching and learning. - By opening up the commons, and by designing workspaces without walls, they have brought Edison’s ‘machine-shop culture’ into education. - By bringing into the commons, experts, parents and investors, they have given an authenticity to the work of their students that is impossible to simulate in an enclosed classroom. - By modelling collaborative working to their students they have fostered the peer learning which is at the heart of ‘open’. - By emphasizing adult and real-world connections, they ensure that students are preparing for the world beyond school by being in that world. - By making their expertise and intellectual property freely available, they have created high demand from their peers and ensured that knowledge travels fast. - By seeing technology not simply as an aide to learning but as the imperative for change, they ensure that their programs are relevant to societal needs and societal shifts. - By trusting in their staff and students, and by giving them freedom and responsibility in equal measure, they have fostered a culture of learning that rewards respectful challenge, shuns unnecessary deference, and therefore constantly stays in motion.
