The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it
Many teachers have added ‘digital literacy’ as number four on the list of literacies their students should have (or be working towards, in most cases). Reading, writing, and math are now followed by digital literacy. Obviously, depending on the grade level  you teach, your students will have different abilities in each of the four areas, …

Office Mix- interactive presentation software

Office Mix- interactive presentation software | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it
The company is currently signing up testers for this educator targeted PowerPoint add-on.

The brand new service, likely to be targeted at the education sector based on information in various Office Mix Knowledge Base entries, transforms PowerPoint presentations into interactive, online lessons, whilst allowing users to share the document with anyone. Microsoft's goal is to turn PowerPoint presentations into classroom content by using Office Mix as it provides audio and video recording, handwriting, a screen capture tool as well as the ability to insert interactive elements such as quizzes and CK12 exercises.

Three Working Models to Integrate Technology in Your Teaching

Three Working Models to Integrate Technology in Your Teaching | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

"Technology is obviously an essential element in our instructional toolkit. Knowing how and when and for what purposes to use this technology is much more important than the technology itself...

An important step in the process of effective integration of technology in education is having a pedagogical approach supported by a theoretical framework to ground your technology practices inside the classroom."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 6, 2014 8:14 PM

Technology is a tool. When to use, how to use it, why you use...these are some of the questions that each of us must consider. To help us effectively integrate technology it is helpful to have a pedogogical background or framework. This post explores three approaches:

* SAMR Model - Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefintion

* TPACK - Content Knowledge, Pedagogical Knowledge, Technological Knowledge and the overlapping knowledges that occur: TP Knowledge which helps us understand how to make content more accessible; TC Knowledge which helps us pair or combine appropriate technology to content; and PC Knowledge which allows us to pair pedagogy with content.

* Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs paired with Technology

This article presents a great overview of all three of these pedagogical approaches, and all have been covered in this Scoop.it so if you are looking for additional information do a search here.

4 ways to integrate Scoop.it with WordPress | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

Before we even launched our public version, we recognized that a lot of content curators were also occasional or regular bloggers and started to offer ways to integrate with Wordpress - the leading blogging platform. Since then, we've seen a lot of our users leverage this integration as well as more and more of our Enterprise clients wanting to combine content curation through Scoop.it and the CMS capabilities of Wordpress for their sites. So we've multiplied the ways you could integrate with a Wordpress site or blog and here's a recap of how to make this work.

The implications for learning engagement are significant.  Recent data suggests that mobile engagement can potentially target 93% of the world's population.  Learning design must shift to accommodate these growing patterns for engagement - instructional design and knowledge of more dynamic mobile platforms will need to become more common.  Universities are still a decade or more behind current trends.  What will blended and elearning look like in another few years if anyone takes notice of this?

"In other words, one of the great teacher misunderstandings is that we have to teach the understanding for understanding to occur. On the contrary, as mystery stories, movies, and (especially) video games reveal, the learner is not only perfectly capable of drawing appropriate inferences, such activity is key to increasing intellectual engagement and reducing the boredom of schooling.  And ironically, the literature on student misconception reveals that in spite of clear “teaching” of big ideas, many students do not understand what they have been taught (even if they pass our quizzes)."
