?Online Communication Will Open New Doors For Community in 2018

Edsurge

Continuing this trajectory, I expect that we will see a significant re-design of community in 2018 and beyond as we open up silos in nearly every sphere of our lives and break open new channels of communication. While there is no disputing the importance of personal interaction, communities are already utilizing technology to build on those face-to-face connections.

But only focusing on these outcomes can take away from the benefits of deep discussion, person to person interaction, and time out of the office to think hard about difficult problems—not necessarily to come up with answers, but just to think. Furthermore, the bonds I build in purposeful conversation help me create a network that can provide input and answers to solve problems, as well as understanding support for times of frustration and failure.

Why Today’s Educators Are So Much More Than #JustaTeacher

Edsurge

This disparaging remark is something I often hear in my work at The Teachers Guild, a professional learning community for teachers to create change for and from their classrooms, incubated within IDEO. The fact that teachers can change the course of a student’s life is something that many of us understand on a personal level. That’s why an investment in teachers is an outsized investment on student learning. Education Technology Personal Learning Networks Community

A Personal Question for All Teachers

Edsurge

What does it mean to make learning personal? It’s no secret that teachers take their jobs personally. For the past three years, we’ve asked educators from every state to share, in their own words, how they make learning personal. So far, we’ve traveled to 28 cities across 23 states, in regions both urban and rural, to learn how educators are helping every student grow, and to amplify their voices by sharing their experiences.

Edsurge

Answers may vary, but the technology’s potential to verify student learning was the focus of Tuesday’s conversation. There was agreement that student learning credentials could be issued via “blocks,” which could be added to the immutable blockchain. Not only that but, as Ed Garay tweeted, blockchain credentialing could lead to “empowering students to have both higher ed and informal entities tag onto their learning transcripts.” hopefully resulting in a more learned society.”
