Opinion: Forget “digital natives.” Here’s how kids are really using the Internet | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it
By challenging the assumption that every child growing up today is a one-size-fits all digital native, we can make sure each of them can find their own way to relate to technology — whether using it to accomplish basic tasks or to create new technologies and worlds. Being aware of our kids’ differences now is what could help keep them from drifting apart.

Chris Carter's comment, July 5, 9:37 PM
A much more nuanced view, and one that I appreciate. I have long called so-called digital natives "digital naives" because the majority of kids only know enough about tech to use it to accomplish what they wish to accomplish. Tech does not really come any easier for them. Tech is simply more common to them.

Today’s global employers are searching for employees that have specific skills. Those skills may not be the same needed in 10 years though. In 2009, the US Department of Labor estimated 65% of today’s school children would eventually be employed in jobs that have yet to be created. The number is far higher today. The influx of technology is what has changed the shape of education forever. For this reason, schools must create opportunities for students to engage in higher level thinking skills and experience 21st century skills while using technology.

Education technology is spreading fast, but there’s no recipe for success

Education technology is spreading fast, but there’s no recipe for success | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it
This article was written by Nichole Dobo Many people are seeking the “secret sauce” for digital learning. As educators expand the use of education technology, they often face a tricky balance. These tools offer the possibility for innovation – trying something new in a quest to improve teaching and learning. But technology isn’t cheap, and the risk of failure looms. To assure success, many educators try to find and follow a recipe for digital learning. But many crucial ingredients can’t be found in a case study about “best practices,” said Julie Evans, the CEO of Project Tomorrow, a nonprofit organization that advocates …

Like other aspects of teaching, how teachers and students use computers, software, and social media is a broad conversation. We use words like education and technology as if they mean something they do not, school and digital tools respectively.

To educate means to lead etymologically. That means teaching is leading and helping students figure out what is appropriate use of tools. Technology is forming wisdom over time so the craftsperson (teacher) can have a conversation with, about, and through their tools. They grow to understand how tools limit and expand their teaching.
Jillian Schaibly's curator insight, July 25, 5:08 PM
How do you implement technology without trying it out first? Using technology or trying out new things can be expensive for school, so finding something that can be tested first is the best option. This resource talks about how there is no right way for digital learning, but there are best practices by some teacher which can help. This could help a principal by having teachers collaborate with the technology they use and share and teach other staff on what they know.

Genial.ly is a good web tool you can use to create engaging visual content. It is somewhat similar to Thinglink we reviewed before. You can use Genial.ly to create interactive  presentations, educational posters, infographics, microsites, images and enrich them with a wide variety of multimedia content. The interactivity part is what gives your visual content dynamism and makes it engaging, For instance, you can create a classroom poster or an animated infographic where you embed interactive content such as  audio files, video clips, documents..etc which students can access with a single click.

The technology revolution transforming education | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it
Technology can empower the students of today to create the world of tomorrow. The students we equip with digital skills today will work in careers we haven’t even thought of yet, and build new technology that we can’t even begin to imagine. Educators, parents, and technology companies have a responsibility to provide them with the best education and tools possible to make this future a reality. Technology is the key to helping our students succeed, think creatively, and ultimately create a better world.

Two interesting perspectives in this article – the Digital Native lens (active learner video) and link to an article on explicit learning (and its continued role in education – although tempered with measures of active learning). As an online university tutor (sage on the stage) and doctoral student in Education (Distance Education) I am curious about finding the right mix of learning strategies to help learners.

This article points out that canned deliverables from tech companies are not personalized learning. Technology has its place in the classroom but we need to remember to teach the individual students. Teachers working with students using technology is most effective and personal. 
 
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, July 4, 1:26 PM
"The central tenet of Watters’ perspective is unassailable. The engines of Silicon Valley are not interested in learners or educators. One does not need to look far to see the forces of individualism, neoliberalism, libertarianism, or imperialism at work."

This has always been the case. Henry Ford and other industrialists were not interested in the needs of schools and people. They were interested in their bottom line and how schools and people could add to that. It remains that way.
