"Not only can a truly fluent student speak, listen, write and comprehend, but he or she can also make inferences and construct new meaning."  This also defines what I hope we're doing with Common Core, and in my experience, it's an enormous shift in students' expectations.  Making them do the thinking can be frustrating after years of memorization and regurgitation.

How Should Schools Navigate Student Privacy in a Social Media World? | technology supporting learning | Scoop.it

"K-12 education operates in a unique position that is foreign in many ways to its higher ed counterpart. While college kids, who are largely legally adults, are free to explore social media and experiment with new technology tools, in the K-12 environment, consideration always has to be given to student privacy when entering uncharted territories."
