TED and The Advancing-Tech Agenda in Schools

Looking for Some Ideas ...

to Adapt/Adopt for Tech-Seavvy School Libraries?

  • A deep-study reading suggestion for those looking for the trends in technology for teaching and learning comes from Michele: it is the 2010 Horizon Report: K-12 Edition and if you don't know what "cloud computing" is or where to go online to find "collaborative environments" or where to start now if you want to be up to speed in 2015 ("augmented realities"), then this is just the reading for you. There are articles, tools, and practice-based examples, as well as an Executive Summary for quick and easy scanning and overviewing the topic.
  • Have a look at this for some really good ideas about "in-house" technology leadership and being part of the advance team for using technology successfully with teaching and learning:

    Teacher Development: Fuelling Teachers To Go High-Tech, from Edutopia (thanks, Jacob, for this link).
