The Edvocate's List of 68 Must-Read K-12 Teaching & Learning Blogs - The Edvocate - 3 views

    "If you're a teacher, or teaching assistant there are plenty of great blogs out there to help you with everything from coming up with teaching plans, to implementing technology in the classroom. Where to start though? The internet is crowded with blogs. We decided to go through some of them for you, so that you can find the blog(s) covering the topics you're looking for and be sure it's quality content.

    Generally, there are four key qualities of a good teaching & learning blog:

    Activity (25%). Information should be updated regularly
    Originality (25%). It should add value with content that's different from all the other blogs out there
    Helpfulness (25%). A good teaching & Learning blog should teach you a new skill, direct you to a useful resource, or at least get you to think in a new way about something
    Authority (25%). The author/authors have the authority and credentials to blog about the topic of teaching & learning
    Each category was assigned an equal weight in our evaluation. They were averaged together to determine the final score in order to come up with our list of the top 68."

5 EdTech Tools That Have Recently Caught My Eye - - 5 views

    "Starting to integrate technology can be intimidating. 

    So many choices, new ideas being shared all of the time through social media, blogs, books, Teacher Professional Development, and more.

    I find the best time to walk away with new ideas is right after a big event dedicated to edtech. With conference season upon us, maybe you recently attended a conference or edcamp or read something and now have a long list of new ideas which can be overwhelming. Or maybe you just are looking for something to change in your classroom or school and need some quick ideas for new, engaging elements to implement in your classroom or with your faculty even for professional development."

The Unintended Consequences of Innovation - EdTech Researcher - Education Week - 2 views

    "Over the past several weeks, three headlines pertaining to education have dominated my social media news feeds: screen time, fake news/media literacy, and the ethical dilemmas associated with advances in technology. When considered together, these three topics represent the unintended consequences of innovation.

    The inventors of television, computers, mobile devices, and social media did not intend to unleash a slew of negative consequences for children. They did not consider the potential for shortened attention spans, lack of connection to nature, or a rising obesity rate; nor did they conceive of their tools as weapons for deploying fake news, unleashing bullying, or fueling hate groups. The Mark Zuckerberg/Biz Stone/Sergey Brin/Steve Jobs/Bill Gates of the world intended to build community, increase access to a global library of information, and provide every individual with a voice."

#EdTech, #TechEd, #MediaLit, #DigCit: Where Do You Fit In? | Tech Learning - 2 views

    "You may have noticed the conversation about ed tech vs tech ed and the confusion about what each is or if there is even a difference.

    This is understandable.

    The International Society for "Technology Education" calls themselves the largest teacher-based organization in the field of "educational technology."


    They're the society for "tech ed" but they are an "ed tech" organization with "ed tech" standards.


    The Innovative Educator is here to help you understand, as well as determine where you fit in this whole picture.  To follow is your handy dandy guide."

The Call To Action: Refining Educational Technology's Place in Teacher Preparation Prog... - 4 views

    "In our innovative classrooms across America, students are using technology in ways that were unheard of just ten short years ago. In a small elementary school in Northwest Baltimore, students use their Makerspace to create 3D printed materials, learn to code and engage in other making activities. In another school in Philadelphia, a student fulfills his senior capstone project requirement by creating a "Smart Beehive" that uses sensors and a camera to track the health of a bee colony.
    While there are some schools of education that prepare pre-service teachers to excel in these types of technology-rich environments on their first day of in-service teaching, there is still room for growth in our teacher preparation programs as a whole, particularly as more schools shift towards digital learning.

    This is why the 2016 National Educational Technology Plan (NETP) asks us to refine educational technology's place in teacher preparation programs. It makes the bold statement that "no new teacher exiting a preparation program should require remediation by his or her hiring district."¹"
