25 Practices That Foster Lifelong Learning - InformED

25 Practices That Foster Lifelong Learning - InformED | Digital Learning, Technology, Education |

"Is your capacity for learning is fixed or fluid? Can you improve your intelligence and talents through hard work and practice, or are you stuck with the brains you’ve got? Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck says most of us have either a “fixed” or “growth” mindset when it comes to learning. Most of us can get through sixteen years of schooling regardless of which mindset we have, but when it comes to lifelong learning–learning for the sake of learning, without outside pressure–only a growth mindset will cut it."

Digital learning is coming whether people like it or not. The new standards call for it. Twenty-first century readiness requires it. Future jobs rely on it. There is no doubt that educational technology has the power to motivate kids, so why not harness that passion in the K-12 classroom? There are many reasons why digital learning has arrived and is here to stay.

Definitely should be part of learning, but not ALL the learning. Digital skills are like all other skills - tools. The CONTENT is what is really important! Too much focus is often on the tools being used, rather than what they are supposed to be teaching.....

Evidence Based Principles for Designing e-Learning Instructions

Evidence Based Principles for Designing e-Learning Instructions | Digital Learning, Technology, Education |

Principle #1: Multimedia Principle


When designing instructions for the purpose of e-Learning, it is critical to include both words and graphics.

Education vs Learning - What Exactly is the Difference? - EdTechReview™ (ETR) | Digital Learning, Technology, Education |
Surely learning and formal education are not entirely the same thing? But what exactly is the difference?

There are two intertwined definitions of education and only one is included here. Educare is leading students out of child. Educere is allowing students to gain control over their learning and realizing they have support when needed. We have eliminated the latter replacing it with the instrumental version called learning which is what School is about.

Nice comparisons and contrasts to make understanding easier.

Excellent read. I recommend taking a look at this article. Sometimes the lines between education and learning can be blurry. Time to clear that up.

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Digital Learning, Technology, Education |

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [ ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.

Inspiring the Next Generation of Thinkers - Edudemic

Inspiring the Next Generation of Thinkers - Edudemic | Digital Learning, Technology, Education |
Teaching kids goes beyond textbooks and classroom lessons. It has to include teaching them to open their minds and how to think for themselves.

This is how we will encourage them to reach their full potential.

One of the most important things we can teach kids is to believe in themselves. As adults we have an obligation to younger generations to help them gain confidence. We should also help them explore their ability to be creative.
