9 Mistakes In Technology Integration In Education

9 Mistakes In Technology Integration In Education | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it
Michael Trucano approaches education technology from a refreshingly different perspective: The Pessimist.

As senior ICT and education specialist at the World Bank in Washington D.C., Trucano advises many developing countries on their education technology spending. He sees many pitfalls and warning signs and encourages nation states to be smarter, discerning customers. He’s observed many missteps along the way and suggests nations separate the hope from the hype of online learning.

This is the quote I really like from this report - great opportunities for teacher librarians.--- ”Digital citizenship and child safety will become an important part of what schools teach,” he said. ”Most kids are not digital natives” as much as we think they are. He notes they still need guidance in using technology to learn.

I think there is merit to what Ms. Ileanes says, however I still believe that a teacher needs to be a blogger.

If you are just beginning your connection with Scoop.it, or even if you've been using Scoop.it for awhile, you are sure to pick up a pointer or two from Ms. Ileane Smith's podcast. She's soooo enthusiastic and quite complete in her coverage. Great job. And she's correct about being able to establish yourself as an authority without having to write a blog.

I've always been a huge promoter of putting what you want out there, and being aware of what your footprint.  Similar presenation given to #etmooc yesterday, but powerful enough to share again.

 

My favorite image is the image of the 80's guy with all the tech surounding him to the simplicity of a cell phone containing it all. "We've come a long way..." and for that I am grateful.

NaNoWriMo: what to do next [in your library] | Library as Incubator Project | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it

Can you believe we’re nearing the finish of National Novel Writing Month?! As Wrimos scramble to reach their 50,000 word goal, we’ve been talking about the myriad ways that writers (and really, artists of all kinds) can use their libraries (local and digital) to inspire and inform their projects.

Our NaNoWriMo series touches on a lot of topics, from inspiration to research to tips for using your library to stave off or conquer writer’s block. So it seemed only appropriate that our final two posts in the series should touch on ways for Wrimos to make excellent use of their libraries after the writing logs are updated for the last time.

'By mining and scouring books for issues and focusing on matters of suitability rather than substance, we in fact fail to teach young people how to read and what reading is for and the ways literature can enlighten, inspire and above all give pleasure.'

Teaching kids how to curate information and discern what's trustworthy from what's bogus is a really important lesson for parents nowadays.

Karen Bonanno's curator insight, December 14, 2012 7:06 PM

This parent states, "So in this age of information at out fingertips, parents have one more important skill to teach their kids: how to be discerning".

 

My insight is that not all parents would be in a position to be able to teach their child this skill. Having access to a teacher librarian certainly would help to support the parents in this worthy endeavour.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's curator insight, December 15, 2012 4:06 AM
Elizabeth Hutchinson's comment, Today, 9:03 AMI agree but do parents or teachers realise that school librarians have these skills and are able to teach them? I wish more people understood our skills!  
BookChook's curator insight, December 15, 2012 3:26 PM

Visual literacy is an important component of digital literacy - and teaching kids to be discerning about what they do online is one of the most important skills of all.
