Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, March 23, 2013 9:02 PM

As a writer, I find this set of predictions both interesting and, well, less than overwhelming. I'd like to see more creativity, especially with regard to the "least likely" possibilities, and less focus on tech companies. I'm more interested in thinking about what life might be like, than in which social media giant is on top. What predictions do you have, and what do you think are the odds for or against?

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 19, 2013 5:11 PM

Hmmm can we predict the future... will be interesting to see what happens with these tools.

Stephen Gwilliam's curator insight, April 30, 2013 10:40 PM

Q. How are we best preparing our students with 21st century fluencies in our schools given these predictions?

The Role of Pinterest Inside & Outside The Classroom [Infographics] | What's New in Education? | Scoop.it

With over 10 million users, Pinterest has rocketed to pop-culture fame since its launch in beta in March 2010. This rapid growth makes it the fastest growing social media site of the past year. Educators have caught on to Pinterest in a big way. From kindergarten to college, teachers, professors and students are using Pinterest creatively to organize and share ideas from all around the Web and even in their own classrooms and campuses.

Proactive vs. reactive thinking

Proactive vs. reactive thinking | What's New in Education? | Scoop.it
Many stories and sayings try to inspire us to be more proactive, as opposed to reactive. In this context, the word reactive implies that you don’t have the initiative.

 

In a nutshell, being proactive is the same thing as being reactive.

 

===> The only difference is: you do the reacting ahead of time. <===

The Australian Curriculum v3.0 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures

The Australian Curriculum v3.0 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures | What's New in Education? | Scoop.it

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are strong, rich and diverse. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Identity is central to this priority and is intrinsically linked to living, learning Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, deep knowledge traditions and holistic world view.


A conceptual framework based on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples’ unique sense of Identity has been developed as a structural tool for the embedding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures within the Australian curriculum. This sense of Identity is approached through the interconnected aspects of Country/Place, People and Culture. Embracing these elements enhances all areas of the curriculum.


The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander priority provides opportunities for all learners to deepen their knowledge of Australia by engaging with the world’s oldest continuous living cultures. This knowledge and understanding will enrich their ability to participate positively in the ongoing development of Australia.

Primary teachers need to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in their teaching. Use the ideas in this website to frame planning.

Clare O'Connor's curator insight, April 2, 2013 2:32 AM

This is going to be a Cross-curricular priority, so I thought it useful to add for our RMLP teachers and in-house education providers.

Greta Brewin's curator insight, October 31, 2013 3:17 AM

I thought it would be a really helpful resource to store a direct link to the cross-curriculum priorities page on the ACARA website. This links to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders histories and cultures cross-curricular priority information page. As teachers you need to link you lesson and unit plans to the Australian Curriculum, and anything that falls under this priority can be justified as a viable learning outcome, because of the priority. Which I think is great, students and teachers need to learn about our indigenous history.
