Literacy in the Digital Age - Kathy Schrock's Guide to Everything - 0 views

  •  
    "I have identified thirteen literacies that our students need to become well-rounded 21st-century citizens. These literacies are not taught as separate literacies but are taught across the content areas."

How to Teach Internet Safety to Younger Elementary Students | Edutopia - 0 views

  •  
    "With children spending time online at younger and younger ages, it is vital that we explicitly teach young children how to protect themselves online. Most young children get the "Stranger Danger" talk at school, so they know about how to handle strangers in their neighborhood and in face-to-face situations."

The Key to Empowering Educators? True Collaboration - 1 views

  •  
    The dichotomy she describes is a lot like the conceptual move from merely connecting with other educators to collaborating on specific projects. The internet has greatly enhanced educators' capacity to connect with one another, something that only used to happen during professional development or at conferences. But taking that ability to the next level, using it to innovate and produce something new, would mean collaborating beyond districts or even national boundaries.

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.

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."

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."

Building a Personal Learning Network - 0 views

  •  
    "It is shame when teachers use excuses not to build their own networks. Too many times they say they can't or they don't have the time when they just don't want to. They are afraid to try something new. Until they give it a try, they won't see the value in it. I believe that when I try something new, I have to use it regularly for at least 2 weeks in order to make an honest decision about it. "
