Debating false dichotomies: a new front in the education wars - The Learner's Way - 2 views

    Sometimes, it seems everyone who ever went to school is an expert on education and has a plan to make it better. Actual teaching experience, years of professional learning and formal training are all easily swept aside. The result is an ongoing dialog around what schools should do, what teachers need to do more of or less of and how the academic success of the nation is linked to strategy x or y.

Google Reader - 0 views

    iGoogle is my homepage so that I have everything I need when I open my browser. I love Reader because I can subscribe to the blogs, websites, online journals, etc., that I like to keep up with. Reader brings those sites to me when there are updates. I can read the first few words in the article list that Reader brings me and decide whether or not I want to read it; I don't have to go to individual websites to keep up with new research. I think it's a good tool to use with students as we begin to transition them from the "find-the-information" model to the "bring-the-information-to-me" model of information skills.

Bloom's Digital Taxonomy - 4 views

  • Bloom's Digital Taxonomy isn't about the tools or technologies rather it is about using these to facilitate learning. Outcomes on rubrics are measured by competence of use and most importantly the quality of the process or product.
    This is the introduction to Bloom's Digital Taxonomy. The different taxonomical levels can be viewed individually via the navigation bar or below this introduction as embedded pages. Synopsis: This is an update to Bloom's Revised Taxonomy which attempts to account for the new behaviours and actions emerging as technology advances and becomes more ubiquitous. Bloom's Revised Taxonomy accounts for many of the traditional classroom practices, behaviours and actions but does not account for the new processes and actions associated with Web 2.0 technologies and increasing ubiquitous personal and cloud computing. Bloom's Digital Taxonomy isn't about the tools or technologies rather it is about using these to facilitate learning. Outcomes on rubrics are measured by competence of use and most importantly the quality of the process or product. For example. Bookmarking a resource is of no value if the resource is inappropriate or worthless.

Education for the 21st Century: Balancing Content Knowledge with Skills | Britannica Blog - 0 views

  • But these 21st-century skills require deep understanding of subject matter, a fact that these reports acknowledge, albeit briefly.
    • Jill Zielinski
      21st Century Skills can not be taught in isolation, there needs to be rich content involved in the development of critical thinking and analyzing information. The use of Web 2.0 tools to complete the integration is how all the pieces of the puzzle fit together.
