Dr. Holman; I have the same problem, I do the highlight, but it looks not the same as you do.

      While auditory-sequential learners may do well with content that requires steps, the deep understanding of the material is vacant.

Digital Natives Looking to Unplug, Connect | Guest Blog, Scientific American Blog Network - 0 views

  • If you were creating a classroom, what would it look like? It would be interactive and have a lot of activities. It should be half and half activities and lecture. I do like when it’s more open, but it is important for us to know what lecture looks like because we might have to do that later. The tables should be set up in a circle so we are all facing each other and talking.
  • It turns out, however, that in this group of students, many talked as if they craved more human interaction, and wanted to unplug more during class

      Interesting. I feel that some of our college courses tell us to use technology just so we can say we are using technology.

  • our students and these students we interviewed have been around technology so much, that when they were asked questions about technology, they had a hard time understanding the question (what do you mean, technology?). Technology isn’t technology for our students–it’s just part of their lives
    • Jenny Sommers
      I never thought about it that these young people that have grown up with technology don't realize what technology really is.
  • Educators say not to incorporate technology for technology’s sake, but more often than not, it is assumed that a new tech tool will effectively engage students
  • As teachers, we shouldn’t be taking away real opportunities for students to engage with each other and simply replacing those opportunities of connection with technology
    Interesting read about what some young people want from technology

  • Feedback must be provided in a mode that is both meaningful and within the information-processing capacity of the learner.
  • Intrinsic pleasure of discovery promote a sense of self-reward
  • Knowledge cannot exist independently from the knower;

Nets Standards - 0 views

  • The National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) are the standards for learning, teaching, and leading in the digital age and are widely recognized and adopted worldwide. The family of NETS—NETS for Students (NETS•S), NETS for Teachers (NETS•T), NETS for Administrators (NETS•A), NETS for Coaches (NETS•C), and NETS for Computer Science Teachers (NETS•CSE)–work together to transform education.
