The second one is interesting. Does making data beautiful make it valid and reliable? It makes it beautiful. A task force just handed down a report on excellence in teaching in Alberta. There graphs are pretty, but 200 pages does not do legitimacy to such a complex subject.

What is an avatar?
An avatar is a figure or character that you can create and customize the way you want. You can use this character to interact with other friends online. Users have the full control of what they want to feature for example the kind of background, accessories, clothes...etc.

Dr. Susan Bainbridge's insight:

Nice mindmap by Stephen Downes, but I really don't see any difference between this chart and the role of the teacher for the past 50 years. Nor should there be! Good teaching is GOOD TEACHING regardless of the technology.

Educators aren't the "sage on the stage" anymore because information is readily accessible. Now teaching is about helping students make sense of all the info. 

Marie Arndt's comment, July 19, 2013 5:43 AM
The role of the teacher has changed in many ways, not just regarding teaching, but the importance they have in students' lives. Technology, as Susan rightly points out, quality of teaching cannot be disguised by technology. We must help students to be selective in the barrage of 'information' they are exposed to, which is not always that but biased tripe or propaganda.
Jeroen Bottema's curator insight, August 6, 2013 8:04 AM

Mooi plaatje, geeft de student inzicht in de verschillende rollen van de leraar. Meer dan alleen 'sage on the stage'. Verder onderschrijf ik de opmerking van Susan Bainbridge.

9 New Skills You Need To be a 21st Century Educator | Online Universities

9 New Skills You Need To be a 21st Century Educator | Online Universities | The 21st Century | Scoop.it

Some of these skills, of course, are holdovers from the 20th century which have grown more refined or essential as the calendar clicked. But education professionals still tout them as desirable — if not outright necessary — components of contemporary classrooms. Probably more so than any other era of academic history. So they’re "new" when it comes to importance, if not concept.

A great blog post describing different skills that are important to be an effective teacher in this day in age. Gives a lot of great tools and advice for teachers to stay connected and use new tools they made not have used in the classroom before.
