Library Of Congress Unveils Massive Common Core Resource Center - Edudemic | Teach-ologies | Scoop.it

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) is here and teachers are trying to figure out how to best integrate it into their tried-and-true lessons. They’re struggling to integrate technology to best augment CCSS. They are in desperate need of classroom materials that they can trust.

What Do We Really Mean When We Say ‘Personalized Learning’?

What Do We Really Mean When We Say ‘Personalized Learning’? | Teach-ologies | Scoop.it
Personalization is often used in the ed-tech community to describe a student moving through a prescribed set of activities at his own pace. The only choice a student gets is what box to check on the screen and how quickly to move through the exercises. For many educators that’s not the true meaning of “personalized learning.”

Worth a read.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, December 4, 5:12 PM
"Personalization is often used in the ed-tech community to describe a student moving through a prescribed set of activities at his own pace."

How is that different than the traditional process of prescribed set of activities. The only difference is pacing, maybe? What is different is it is an facile and trite new expression that is easy to throw out there and impress people. It is part of a nonsensical neo-liberal agenda.

I subscribe to John Dewey, William Doll, and Ted Aoki and letting students have a voice in their learning in ways that allow them freedom to make choices and still follow the curriculum-as-plan.
Jerry Busone's curator insight, December 5, 7:39 AM

Personalized learning is not learn at your pace and check the box when you are done. Thats control and compliance to learn something. Personalized learning misgiving the learner the  freedom to follow a meaningful line of inquiry, while building the skills to connect, challenge and analyze information and make their assumptions on best way to leverage those skills.

After-school STEM programs inspire kids to keep learning | Teach-ologies | Scoop.it
At an after-school STEM club in Rhode Island, students are working on an engineering challenge -- because they want to be. The low-stakes, fun environment offers time for exploration when resources or hands-on activities may be in short supply during school hours, and can help sustain interest as classes get harder. Special correspondent Lisa Stark of Education Week reports.

Why Educators Trained in Neuroscience Continue to Believe in Neuromyths - InformED | Teach-ologies | Scoop.it
“If educators were to take a class in neuroscience that did not specifically address neuromyths, it would be unlikely to help with dispelling the misconceptions that are most closely related to learning and education.” The battle against neuromyths is far from over. In a recent large-scale survey involving five academic institutions across the U.S., researchers... Read More

The Importance of your Digital Reputation

The Importance of your Digital Reputation | Teach-ologies | Scoop.it
We live in a society where online searches tend to influence – if not drive – many of our decisions. If we are looking for a good doctor in the area, a potential vacation spot, or advice on what electronics to purchase this holiday season, we will perform searches using our phone, tablet, or computer. It is so easy and has become almost second-nature. That said, we don’t just look up inanimate objects and places – we look up individuals all the time.
