A free online course from MITx, starting July 14, introduces educators to key considerations for integrating technology in school settings.
Given the barrage of apps and ideas, educators can feel pulled in multiple directions. However, consider the power of a single, overarching idea.
When faced with challenges, online learners draw on resources from their workstations, diverse online spaces, and their network of friends and family.
Consider what learning might look like if every student could search their notes to make deeper connections and engage in inquiry.
When teachers become learners and reflect on their practice, then new instructional designs and strategies emerge from the experience.
To better understand younger students and workers, use Design Thinking to engage in empathy and make deeper connections across generations.
Educators and ed-tech companies need to foster a more robust and collaborative relationship in order to further innovate classrooms and schools.
Even the youngest of students can engage in the Design Thinking process and make an impact in their community.
For teachers to transform their classroom practice, the most important skill may be their ability to learn how to learn.
Today's school leaders are expected to be collaborative, knowledgeable, and in possession of a new set of technology skills.
