It is not just having the technology; it is knowing how to use the technology effectively!

Cathleen Nardi's curator insight, May 23, 2013 5:58 PM

The ability to adapt and the ability to encourage one's students to do the same.

Jane Sowter-Maranion's curator insight, May 23, 2013 7:12 PM

Being a 21st Century educator is creating a learning environment that is social, collaborative and project based. Teachers, nor anyone else for that matter, will ever be able to keep up with all new technologies. The trick is to focus on digital technologies that facilitate student collaboration.

The 25 Most Powerful Women Engineers In Tech

The 25 Most Powerful Women Engineers In Tech | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it
What glass ceiling?
Amy Ragsdale's insight:

From the article: "less than 12 percent of computer science degrees earned in 2010-11 were awarded to women.

 

There's a lot of programs to encourage more women to enter the field from the Ladycoders seminars to the Anita Borg Institute (ABI), which today announced the winners of its 2013 Women of Vision Awards.

 

For the women who do choose a tech career, the sky's the limit. There's plenty of opportunity to become a power player, at big companies and hot startups alike."

Amy Ragsdale's curator insight, May 17, 2013 9:21 AM

From the article: "When a pregnant Marissa Meyer took over as Yahoo's CEO last year, the tech industry seemed to enter a new era: the end of the glass ceiling.

But the truth is, there's still an alarming shortage of women becoming engineers, particularly software engineers."

10 Expectations Learners Have!

"We hear often of the "high expectations" schools must have of and for their students, yet we seldom hear of the expectations students have of their schools."

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, May 14, 2013 10:03 AM

Learners' expectations constitute the new "rules of engagement" in the relationship that young people want with their schools. Consider these expectations and then have an open dialogue on how you can create "learner-centered" environments where these expectations could be realized for the learners in your school.

Vicki Butler's curator insight, May 14, 2013 11:58 AM

Just had this discussion with a dear friend in his late 70's. Thanks for posting this!

Lou Salza's curator insight, May 15, 2013 11:13 AM

I liked this. It was an opportunity for me to listen to the learner point of view. The 10 expectations are relevant at any level but these are particularly important at the secondary and college level in my view. These expectations also speak to how on line and blended learning environments will or will not connect to learners. well worth 4 minutes!-Lou

 

Excerpt from the decription on YouTube:" We hear often of the "high expectations" schools must have of and for their students, yet we seldom hear of the expectations students have of their schools. Students' expectations constitute the new "rules of engagement" in the relationship that young people want with their schools."

The folks at Fractus Learning have taken a look at videos available at Open Culture and selected six to share (although many more are available). The choices here include:

* The Rap Guide to Evolution

Videos are a great tool to use with students. Although this post specifically deals with science videos across the disciplines are available at Open Culture (http://www.openculture.com/).
