I never would have realized all the ways that technology has really changed the classroom until this article. It changes a lot more than one would think.

Emily Leffler's curator insight, September 19, 4:52 PM

Students now live in a world where they want to share things early and often. By integrating that into the classroom students can actually teach each other without even realizing it, and then together they can get excited about the process of learning as they see it happen.

This gives great insight into the gap that exists between technology and education. Although students are masters at using technology, where the dire need is is in solving problems with it. Teachers are vital in teaching students to think critically and use what is available to them to really innovate.

Jennifer Colin's curator insight, October 15, 2015 8:47 AM

I did not find this article of much use, as I do not agree with the premise: "Being a connected educator today is one of the most important hallmarks of effective twenty-first century leadership."  Mmmm.... I don't know about that.  Being digitally connected is a positive thing, but I would not concur that it's a major tenet of providing quality leadership.  The author does concede, "Of course simply HAVING a twitter account doesn’t automatically equate to being a connected educator."  In my opinion, Twitter or no, if you're not a good leader, any amount of technology is not going to help you become one. We need to be careful not to overemphasize technology. There is a definite place for it, but it does not replace the core significance of knowledgeable and personable school leaders.  Our administrator has taken our school leaps and bounds over the last decade, and he doesn't even have a Facebook page.

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 15, 2015 8:58 PM

Interesting to me that leadership "now-a'days" requires a digitally connected person. I have to admit that this "scoop it thing has turned my facebook into a pedestal for all of my idealistic educational philosophies. It does make me sit back and think deeply about topics that are important in my career but does it make me better at my job and more successful at it? Not so sure. I go back and forth with technology. We have a love/hate relationship. I think it can be distracting and take away from the essence of face to face communication. With that said, it is here to stay so I will continue to brace it.
