Let's try this!

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, July 9, 2013 1:42 PM

I like some of these ideas. I'm thinking we could have students make podcast booktalks and have QR codes linking to them in the books or on a display or around the school. Hmm...kids can't use their phones at school, yet. Well, I can always put links to them in our catalog and on the website.

Connie Wise's curator insight, July 23, 2013 12:04 AM

Use podcasting to meet Common Core standards of speaking & writing.

Marilyn Korhonen's curator insight, June 20, 2013 10:21 AM

The future is not about a single device or set of devices. According to this author,


"The future is about access, anywhere learning and collaboration, both locally and globally. Teaching and learning is going to be social. Schoolsof the future could have a traditional cohort of students, as well as online only students who live across the country or even the world. Things are already starting to move this way with the emergence of massive open online courses (MOOCs)."

Jennifer Shackles's curator insight, July 6, 2013 7:44 PM

Some valid points made.
