How Khan Academy Is Changing the Rules of Education | Magazine - 0 views

  •  
    Khan Academy - hadn't heard of this before but I LOVE the way instructors are using this to "flip" the classroom.  Using these short videos to deliver the content (lecture) and using the class time to do the homework where students can receive the help they might need.

School chooses Kindle; are libraries for the history 'books'? - USATODAY.com - 1 views

  •  
    I don't think the Kindle is the panacea of access as this article suggests - some healthy collection development in prior years may have made the device less of a "savior" for research. "We have to work with what we have" is a cop-out, in my opinion. What do you think?

    you know what hits me about this is that we need to consider lowering our sights on the technology that we promote campus wide to faculty and use the peer tutoring method to engage more faculty in the common easy to use technologies. Still work on the emerging tech with the tech savy and work more one-on-one with the biggest chunk of faculty using/exploring other technology. Did I just define 3 levels of engagment with faculty? hhmmmm

Ten Ideas for Getting Started with 21st Century Teaching and Learning by Lisa Nielsen - 1 views

  •  
    This article makes a good point that I think I have missed sometimes in working with faculty. Before we encourage faculty new to Instructional Technology to use 21st Century technology as part of their curriculum we should encourage them to be participants in the technology. We should encourage them to subscribe to a blog/wiki/Podcast and be a participant so that they can better understand the tools usefulness in learning before they integrate it into their curriculum.
  •  
    Some good steps. I think she missed the first step which is to define the need for the technology in the first place - what are the teaching/learning goals that will be satisfied/transformed through the integration of technology. Too often we start with the technology and forget the fundamentals of pedagogy.
