Great infographic. 

Robert Blair's curator insight, February 14, 2013 2:02 AM

I think that this is such a great visual for my generation. It is so representative of how we rely, and use technology to demonstrate common core values in the classroom. This is great but it also could be our achilles heel, we need to apeal to all types of learners and visual is just one, there are so many more type that must be catered to so that we can be affective.

Less Talking About Twitter, More Asking About Learning

Less Talking About Twitter, More Asking About Learning | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it

“No, tweeting isn’t for everyone, but here is another question: If used effectively, would it make someone a better educator?

 

If the answer is yes, then what?”

 

So I guess that I am asking you, what are the things outside of social media that make you a better teacher, learner, and/or leader?  Why?

Six months ago, Genachowski and Duncan launched an effort with business and education leaders to help schools make the transition to digital textbooks. At yesterday’s event, this collaborative presented them with the “Digital Textbook Playbook,” a resource for schools making the move to digital learning.  As a next step, Genachowski and Duncan announced a meeting in March 2012 with education CEOs, state officials, and nonprofit leaders to advance the national adoption of digital textbooks.

Parents have the freedom to determine their child's educational path and the plan for reaching their goals. Students have the opportunity to explore and learn at their own pace, in any location or at any time. Home education students are able to enter institutions of higher learning and are eligible to participate in the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program.
