If students designed their own school… it would look like this - 2 views

  •  
    ""It's crazy that in a system that is meant to teach and help the youth there is no voice from the youth at all." That's the opening line in a video called "If students designed their own schools," about The Independent Project, a high school semester designed and implemented entirely by students."
  •  
    This is a really remarkable project, all student driven and Deweyan in its roots.

What 21st Century Educators Need To Learn To Survive - 1 views

  •  
    "What are the characteristics we would expect to see in a successful 21st century educator? We know 21st century educators are student-centric, holistic and they are teaching about how to learn as much as teaching about the subject area. We know too, that they must be 21st century learners as well. But highly effective teachers in today's classrooms are more than this - much more."

  •  
    "This chart shows us the step by step approach to locate, to use, to assess and to evaluate the information. This chart helps us to keep the certain targets in our mind while looking and using the information. For example, we should be very specific for the kind of information, we require in our search."

Defending Tech Literacy/Use for Elementary School Children - 0 views

  •  
    "We live in a tech world, and tech is not going away.  Tech is an amazing resource that can make learning far more engaging and accessible to children of all income levels, academic profiles and interests.  It is essential that we integrate technology into the education of young children with enthusiasm, knowledge and care."

Becoming an Entrepreneurial Learner - 0 views

  •  
    ""This does not mean how to become an entrepreneur. This really means, how do you constantly look around you all the time  for new ways, new resources to learn new things? That's the sense of entrepreneur I'm talking about that now in the networked age almost gives us unlimited possibility.""

America's Problem: How the World is "Beating Us" in a Battle We Don't Necessarily Want ... - 0 views

  •  
    "We force our youth into taking virtually all the same classes, subject them to the same standardized tests, and judge their future worth and potential off an average. In doing so, we bring smart students down to an average level, ignore average students, make under-achieving students feel absolutely hopeless, and leave brilliant students unchallenged and completely unmotivated. By destroying this natural variation we suppress the best parts of our human condition; the unique strengths and individualistic tendencies that lie within all of us."

Web 2.0 and Metacognition - 0 views

  •  
    "Although Web 2.0 assists educators with guiding learners to complete tasks and supports the scaffolding of lessons to meet course objectives, there are more advanced pedagogical implications when using Web 2.0 as an instructional tool, such as fostering information literacy and metacognition."

If you didn't blog it, it didn't happen. - 1 views

  •  
    As I'm reflecting on the #eci831 experience and actually thinking about something like a grade for my participation, I realize that I may not have been as good a student as I thought. Not that I didn't do a lot of wandering around the interwebs, connecting myself, exploring spaces of education, learning about digital learning theories, examining how others were using these theories, and determining what, of all of this, would be useful to me and to the analogue educators I am closest with. I certainly did that, but I didn't capture all that here. Why is that a problem? Because if you didn't blog it, it didn't happen.
  •  
    This must be the educator in you talking. Metacognitively speaking => the ability to discuss what you have learned is one of the great opportunities of the web 2.0. And a great way to reinforce your learning, so this idea of "if you didn't blog it, it didn't happen" is an interesting idea for educators. I have a link to post about this.

Make your content legit: Four phases of "social proof" - 0 views

  •  
    "I see social proof as integral to producing the most legitimate content of whatever medium today. We now have the ability to obtain social proof at every stage of the creative and publishing processes; we must therefore integrate social proof into those stages (and be more critical of any content that ignores it)."

The Spectrum Between Consumerism and Design - 0 views

  •  
    "Teachers see themselves as consumers, putting lawmakers, publishers, and administration in control. However, teacher are designers. Teachers hold an incredible amount of decision-making power. According to Marzano's work, teachers are the number one school-level factor relative to student achievement. So, stop choosing off the shelf. Design-- with your end users in mind."

Connected Teaching and Learning - Using online delivery and social media for more engag... - 1 views

  •  
    "Integrating a complex set of technological tools in delivering a class results in "digital pain" as the professor talks, brings up video, monitors live chat, and performs a number of other tasks simultaneously, often without support. Responding to technical problems experienced by individual students is not possible in real time during the classes. Dr. Matrix does provide extensive one-on-one technical support before and after classes."

the minimalism of not knowing - 0 views

  •  
    "One of the things I've noticed from turning off my computer periodically throughout the day (I work in 30-minute chunks), is that when the computer is off, I often think of a question I want answered - and my first instinct is to go to the computer and search. I'd know in like 4 seconds!"
