More advice to students thinking of studying online | Tony Bates | K-12 Professional Learning and Curriculum Design | Scoop.it
One of my most popular blog posts is A student guide to studying online. However, it was written five years ago, so I have just updated it, making sure all the links are still working and where necessary replacing dead links with new ones. In particular, I have added links to an excellent new book on how to master an online degree, and a link to a very useful general study guide from the UK’s 360 GSP. Below are reviews of both resources.

How Should School Districts Measure Ed Tech’s Return on Investment?

How Should School Districts Measure Ed Tech’s Return on Investment? | K-12 Professional Learning and Curriculum Design | Scoop.it

"In education, ROI (Return On Investment) is a big deal. Resources are finite, and whenever they’re spent those holding the purse strings want to know if the investment is justified. When it comes to new technologies and innovative approaches, ROI can be difficult to calculate; which can put edtech in an awkward position when it comes to justifying the expenditure."

7 Reasons To Use Social Media In Your School (INFOGRAPHIC) | #ModernEDU | K-12 Professional Learning and Curriculum Design | Scoop.it

One thing is for sure, social media is here to stay. Never before have people been able to connect, share, and learn from one another as we do now. I can only imagine what might be next! As a result, our students need skills to win at life in a digital world. The ability to use social media to support life goals and possibilities can be a game-changer. I know it has been very powerful for me in my professional life.

I have received some interesting feedback about my recent post about technology in the 21st century. The feedback has been largely positive but I should clarify that I do appreciate that the article How Technology should be taught in a 21st Century School (UK v USA) does make some sweeping generalisations and is somewhat one-sided…

16 Strategies For Integrating The Habits of Mind In The Classroom

16 Strategies For Integrating The Habits of Mind In The Classroom | K-12 Professional Learning and Curriculum Design | Scoop.it

"In outcomes-based learning environments, we generally see three elements in play: 1) learning objectives or targets are created from given standards; 2) instruction of some kind is given; and then 3) learning results are assessed. These assessments offer data to inform the revision of further planned instruction. Rinse and repeat.

But lost in this clinical sequence are the Habits of Mind that (often predictably) lead to success or failure in the mastery of given standards. In fact, it is not in the standards or assessments, but rather these personal habits where success or failure — in academic terms — actually begin."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 3, 2014 10:23 PM

Many of us discuss Bloom's taxonomy with students (although we may not refer to it using that terminology) but how many of us talk about Habits of Mind with our students. This post explores how we can use habits of mind to help our students providing suggestions as to how you might help your students learn them.

As an educator, it’s important to understand everything that shapes your students’ education, both inside and outside of the classroom. You’re trained to study lesson plans and develop learning strategies and abide by district-wide standards. But what about your own development as an educator? What rules exist to help you maintain your professional growth?
