"There is not a writer in our classrooms today who will not be producing something with a digital writing tool in her or his lifetime." -- Troy Hicks

Short interview with a few wise words.
Interesante forma de enseñar a los estudiantes como escribir mejor invitándolos a desarrollar textos digitales. Las diferentes herramientas que hoy existen para impulsar el "digital writing" hacen posible producir interesantes historias como "Snow Fall" (http://www.nytimes.com/projects/2012/snow-fall/#/?part=tunnel-creek).
Many educators are doing Education 1.0; talking about doing Education 2.0; when they should be planning and implementing Education 3.0. This post compares the developments of the Internet-Web to those of education. The Internet has become an integral thread of the tapestries of most societies throughout the globe. The web influences people’s way of thinking, doing and being; and people influence the development and content of the web.
Greatest expenses for the State: Medical and Education.
That's why anything in these domains that helps explain how the Internet is going to make those enormous savings in the next years (e.g. through "self-medication" diagnosing oneself with the help of online medical expert systems https://www.google.ch/search?q=+medical+expert+systems&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=sb&gfe_rd=cr&ei=K9dQU9W5EO7W8gfd7ICACg or through "self-education" just in the knowledge you need through systems like this here over) is to take in the newest or modern history curriculum.
Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Androgagy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning
The “flipped classroom” is the idea of the moment, advocated by everyone from Bill Gates to Eric Mazur, the pioneering science educator. This educational innovation is exciting and promising – but I’d argue for a slight revision to the discourse to make sure we don’t replace one rigid format with another. My suggestion: let’s scramble, not flip, the classroom.
Flipping, Blending OR Scrambling?? Whatever be the term, what is good for our students is the need to use both "direct instruction" and "facilitated practice" to intentionally help students meet our learning goals.

Really insightful and thought-provoking post!
Teaching is fundamentally about human interactions, and that can’t be replaced by technology.
One of the benefits of the 'flipped classroom' philosophy is the reality that you will get to know your students better! #brilliant
2013 was a year of hype for MOOCs (massive open online courses). Great big numbers and great big hopes were followed by some disappointing first results.
"We can transform education, both in quality and access, through technology." says Anant Agarwal. He shares his vision of blended learning, where teachers create the ideal learning experience for 21st century students.

For those who are doing audio and video production, there's a need for editing these audios and videos and tools on the market to get the job done affordably.
Should come in handy as I will be dipping my toes (finally!!) into screencasting this term. I like that it is advising on one tool that I have used a few times already (Audacity) and the another that I is already on my short list of screencasting software for this term.

Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology today released a series of working papers based on 17 online courses offered on the edX platform.
The working papers gives a good insight on student engagement -- researches on how students learn and how technologies can facilitate effective teaching both on-campus and online! good read!
Some of the largest online course providers say there will be big changes to their products in 2014.
Listen to the talk show on MOOCs -- an interesting piece to listen or read!
So this seems to be a good point to look not just at 2014, but where we might be going five to ten years from now, and in doing this, I want to include choice or human decision-making as well as technological determinism. In other words, what kind of online learning do I expect in the future, given what I know so far?
Tony Bates looks beyond 2014 and thinks about online learning in 2020!
Higher Education Academy The pervasive and growing role that technology plays in our daily lives, in our communications, and in our learning and teaching, is well known, around us in the media almost every day. And the issues technology presents to the Higher Education community with regard to challenges to address and potential enhancements to embrace, are immense
Helps you think about:What role can technology play with respect to assessment feedback? How can we harness its potential to enhance the practice and professional interaction with students?

Curriculet’s digital reading platform allows teachers to enrich reading by embedding their questions, quizzes and rich media directly into the reading.
seems like a useful tool to generate interaction and discussion when using digital texts and books
Definitely worth trying!
Amazingly easy to use. A good way to turn reading comprehension into something catchy!
Appears to be geared mostly toward secondary at this time. Would love to see upper elementary text added.
February23, 2014 Flipped classroom or flipped learning is a methodology, an approach to learning in which technology is employed to reverse the traditional role of classroom time. If in the past,...
a simple graphic on the concept of flipped classroom!
There are some good points in each bullets. Learning is not a given in any setting.
VideoTwo of the hot topics in education in the last few years have been Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and the flipped classroom. I’ve been experimenting with both of them. What I’ve learned (besides being able to use the word “pedagogy” in a sentence) is 1) assigning students lectures as homework doesn’t guarantee [...]
We take a look at the six “key trends” picked out in the NMC Horizon Report: 2014 Higher Education Edition
1. Growing ubiquity of social media2. Integration of online, hybrid, and collaborative learning3. Rise of data-driven learning and assessment4. Shift from Students as Consumers to Students as Creators5. Agile approaches to change6. Evolution of online learning
Looking at the impact Of technology on curiosity is also a look at the impact of technology on learning
interesting! looks at the relationship between curiosity & technology!
RawShorts is the fastest, easiest, and most cost-effective solution for producing professional-looking explainer videos, animated presentations, demo & marketing videos for business.
Free resources are always good for schools and libraries. This doesn't look as slick as Animoto, but would be great for short explainer video projects that teachers, librarians and even students could create. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks fairly easy.
The culmination of my quest for more powerful learning grounded in theory and research came when recently I conducted an experiment in pushing constructionism into the digital age.
a very informative article!
The posting below looks at some particular techniques for enhancing the flipped classroom model for teaching and learning. It is by Marilla Svinicki, University of Texas at Austin
Like the way the article summarizes --- "The principles are old and valuable, but they haven't been usable because of constraints of time and effort on the parts of both students and teacher. It is the possibility of implementing these key principles that is new, and often enabled by technology's ability to capture their essence."
by Sarah McBride
summary by SmartBrief for the Higher Education Leader
"A new university that offers a unique approach to online learning is the result of a partnership between the Minerva Project and California's Keck Graduate Institute. The new Minerva Schools of KGI, opening this fall, requires students to spend their first year living in a San Francisco residence hall, taking their courses online together in "real time." Throughout the following three years, students will be required to move to Minerva residence halls in other cities. "Experiential learning is all about interacting with the world around you," Minerva Project Chairman Ben Nelson said."
something to look out for!
