Have you seen RSA Animate animated video lectures? There's a whole channel full of them on Youtube and they are brilliant! This tool lets the ordinary teacher do the same thing without any drawing or illustrator skills. You can sign up for a free trial - unclear if this is limited to a time period or not (e.g. 30 days). the Pro account costs $25 (US) a month so not exactly cheap.

New Pedagogies for Deep Learning

New Pedagogies for Deep Learning | Transliteracies, Libraries and 21st century information fluency | Scoop.it

The New Pedagogies for Deep Learning partnership seeks to renew our goals for education and learning, to include skills that prepare all learners to be life-long, creative, connected and collaborative problem solvers and to be healthy, happy individuals who contribute to the common good in today’s globally interdependent world. 

 

We need our learning systems to encourage youth to develop their own visions about what it means to connect and flourish in their constantly emerging world, and equip them with the skills to pursue those visions. This expansive notion, encompassing the broader idea of human flourishing, is what we mean by “Deep Learning.”

21st Century Literacy: New Initiative Makes the Case that Learning to Code is ... Business Wire (press release) “Our goal is to make computational fluency part of what all young people learn, not just a tech-savvy minority,” Ito said.
Jan MacWatters's insight:
To use their phrase. Coding is the new literacy. Teaching coding may prepare our students to take on the job of computer programmer. However it also teaches logical consequential thinking and when a program doesn't work it forces them to ask the right question to find a solution to make it work. Isn't that what education is all about?

You’ve Got to See it Before You Can Read it! Making Ancient Texts and Images Available on the Web

You’ve Got to See it Before You Can Read it! Making Ancient Texts and Images Available on the Web | Transliteracies, Libraries and 21st century information fluency | Scoop.it

The great problem is that so few repositories of ancient books make digital images of their material available in truly useful ways: the data needs to be free, it needs to be published at the resolution at which it is captured, and it needs to be presented outside any fancy interfaces so that others can ingest it and use it as they like with the least “friction” possible. The web of medieval manuscripts in the future isn’t going to be built by institutions; it’s going to be built by users who are going to present the data as they want to present it, to answer the questions that they want to ask. The institutions need only provide the data – but they do have to provide the data! The result is that images from these manuscripts are now the easiest images to find of medieval manuscripts on the web: just try finding them on a Google image search! The traditional audience for these materials is grateful, and entirely new audiences have been reached.
