john vail – Education Reform

It is interesting to watch the transformation of how we educate. Technology is facilitating digital inclusion – Including oneself in the conversations expressed through social media that builds up social capital.

The negative impact learners might experience from not insinuating themselves into digital conversations might not be as readily apparent as if they did not have access to technology and/or the Internet, or if they are not digitally literate. Not having access or being digitally competent has immediate and apparent effects and consequences whereas not participating in the various forms of social media will be detrimental to learners, but in a less immediately identifiable manner. Becoming digitally inclusive is one of the foundations of being a lifelong learner, helping one meet and overcome life’s challenges. Not being digitally inclusive will hamper one’s ability to fully utilize Information and Communication Technologies as a way to assist them in achieving personal empowerment, which in turn will bring about an improvement in their quality of life.

WANTED: 4th grade beta testers

I'm creating an app that teaches vocabulary across the curriculum based on popular research from a book called BRINGING WORDS TO LIFE. It will be useful for others — not in 4th grade — ESL, for example. Do please sign up for free and allow your students and children to use it. We'll publish student writing using these words on the site. There are scoreboards to motivate. Students can repeat the teaching quizzes. Students can collaborate while playing. It's about reading around important words: everyday words, academic words, and domain-specific words.
Please SHARE :D
