The technology revolution transforming education

The technology revolution transforming education | Teaching ideas for Science | 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.

This is a Microsoft article. What is the bias that creates a partcular subtext? Who says that the only tools to use are digital?
Dr. Theresa Kauffman's curator insight, June 15, 2017 11:21 AM
Ensuring our students become fluent technology users for their future careers is part of the learning process. Engage them in ways they will want to learn.

10 Tools for Increasing Engagement in Online Courses

10 Tools for Increasing Engagement in Online Courses | Teaching ideas for Science | Scoop.it

Over the last few years I've done a lot of work developing writing and redeveloping online courses and course materials. In the initial rush to get learning online many organisations got themselves a Moodle platform and then attached a whole load of PDFs and .docs, added some forums and the odd video clip and called it an online course. It's no surprise then that drop out rates for online learning courses have been so high.
