"“Show What You Know With Media” is a book series and website created by Dr. Wesley Fryer to serve as a menu, handbook, andmap for teacher-leaders and learners in the twenty-first century who seek to develop digital literacies as multimedia communicators and help students “show what they know with media.” * Mapping Media to the Curriculum (Volume I) explores the first six products in the framework: Interactive Writing, Narrated Art, Radio Shows, 5 Photo Stories, Visual Notetaking, and Narrated Slideshows / Screencasts. Videos in each chapter (hosted on YouTube) are directly linked for compatible eReaders and also linked via QR codes, so readers can optionally use a smartphone to view them."

In this October Issue of Insights on Personalized Learning, the focus is on learner-centered environments and the national models that place learners at the center. Take a look at the deep conversations around the two-part series on Personalized Learning that Larry Ferlazzo introduced in EdWeek and the article from Amber Sawyer who looks closely at the soft skills learners need to be successful in a personalized learning environment. Finally, we included a new grant announcement from the Nellie Mae Education Foundation.

Teacherpreneurs: Changing education from the inside out | CTQ

Teacherpreneurs: Changing education from the inside out | CTQ | Training and Assessment | Scoop.it

What if teachers could lead without leaving the classroom—and in doing so, incubate and execute their own policy and pedagogical ideas?

In recent years, the Center for Teaching Quality has supported two dozen teacherpreneurs — expert teachers who typically have a reduced teaching load of 50% — to lead bold reforms at the school, district, state and national levels. In partnership with districts (and with philanthropic financial support), teacherpreneurs like Noah Zeichner, Ali Wright, Jessica Cuthbertson and Julie Hiltz have achieved remarkable results for students, schools and the profession.

These classroom experts have generated powerful proof points for CTQ’s bold brand of teacher leadership, documented in a series of case studies. Their experiences have also yielded “lessons learned” that we can share with others interested in this model:


Extra time yields extraordinary results. 


The best teacherpreneurs “lead from the middle.


Technology keeps teacher leaders connected with the world while based in the classroom.


Relationships matter.


Blurring the lines between policy and practice makes each stronger.


When educators can teach and lead, they and their schools benefit.

Toyota had this idea many years ago - creative thinking time - what teachers have always wanted ...It actually does work!

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 24, 2015 3:12 PM

I chose this resources because I was interested in the concept of "teacherpreneurs". The opportunity to be afforded the time to engage in policy development and leadership roles is certainly terrific. I've always felt the influence from the ground level (teachers) is seldom felt. Instead, influence remains with the research community and union organizations. Of the specific points described in this article is that "The best teacherpreneurs lead from the middle". Teachers respond to others who are dealing with the same pressures and stresses associated with teaching. 

Shelly Reckow VanVoorst's curator insight, October 25, 2015 9:57 PM

I scooped this article because more and more the topic of teacherpreneurs is coming up.  I like the idea of teachers as leaders, and even helping with policies.  It will be interesting to see if this expands more in the future. I hope that teachers reading this article watch this course of study/action closely and take part in it when they can, as we need more teachers to move into leadership and even into advocacy roles for education.

Preparing for the digital university: a review of the history and current state of distance, blended, and online learning

Preparing for the digital university: a review of the history and current state of distance, blended, and online learning | Training and Assessment | Scoop.it

The sheer scale of numbers of students led to bold proclamations of education disruption and a sector on the verge of systemic change. However, from the perspective of 2015, these statements appear increasingly erroneous as moocs have proven to be simply an additional learning opportunity instead of a direct challenge to higher education itself. Many of the issues confronting early mooc development and offerings could have been reduced if greater consideration was given to research literature in learning sciences and technology enabled learning.
