Announcing: Raising Modern Learners! - Will Richardson

Announcing: Raising Modern Learners! - Will Richardson | Learning in a Digital Era | Scoop.it

"I’m really excited to announce a new undertaking that my good friend Bruce Dixon from Melbourne, Australia and I are launching today: Raising Modern Learners (RML). 

 

"As the proud owner of two teenagers (where’s the handbook?), I’ve been more and more drawn to the question of how we begin to educate parents around the very big learning and schooling shifts that are occurring because of the Web and the technologies that support it. Specifically, how can we develop and nurture in parents a new context for learning that will allow them to understand the changes many of us are fighting for in our classrooms. Neither Bruce nor I have seen any co-ordinated attempts to offer parents a truly different concept of schooling that synthesizes technological change with progressive ideas around learning and a new vision for the role of schools in our communities.  

 

"We’re hoping our free, weekly newsletter and accompanying site will begin that work."

Putting Digital and Information Literacies into Practice - The Digidol Project | Learning in a Digital Era | Scoop.it

Wednesday 6th February 2013In combination with academic literacies, digital and information literacies represent a broad spectrum of knowledge and skills that ideally should be developed as an integral part of subject specific learning. The challenge at an institutional level is helping academic staff and students achieve this in a manner that is fully integrated and sustainable.

Using Blubbr you can create interactive quizzes that are based on YouTube clips. Your quizzes can be about anything of your choosing. The structure of the quizzes has a viewer watch a short clip then answer a multiple choice question about the clip. Viewers know right away if they chose the correct answer or not.

How Matchmaking Technology Can Help Reduce Teacher Turnover - The Huffington Post

 

In fact,30 percent of new teachers quit before three years and almost 50 percent quit before five years.

 

The biggest reason for leaving? Nope, not pay. It's a little more complex than that. The biggest reason for leaving was the culture.

 

It was satisfaction with working conditions, which included relationships with colleagues, quality of professional development, quality of the curriculum, building conditions, etc.

Collaboration is a skill central to the 21st century learning; not that it was not important before but with the use of interactive digital technologies, learners need to draw more on their collaborative skills to enhance their learning .

Collaboration has several features and principles. It is a learnable skill that we need to teach to our students through hands-on activities. In this regard, I am sharing with you this wonderful graphic on the  12 principles of collaboration. Check it out below and share it with your colleagues and students.
