ITEM:  Big Education Ideas in 2013

 

Have you made your list of New Year's resolutions yet? Edutopia has
seven big ideas to try in 2013.

 

Collaborative Learning

Research shows that collaborative math and discussion-based English can
help promote deeper learning, critical thinking, and community.   See
How It Works

Mobile Learning

>From smartphones and tablets, to MP3 players and e-readers, today's
students have a variety of mobile technologies at their fingertips --
and educators are finding new ways to engage students and make
curriculum relevant.   Get Resources to Learn More
<http://www.edutopia.org/mobile-learning-resources> 

 

Open Education Resources

How do you keep educational materials relevant, customizable, and
inexpensive? Set up free online materials with open licenses so teachers
and learners can reuse, revise, remix and redistribute the digital
resources to their heart's content.   Check Out this Primer

Social Media

Social media is fast becoming as ubiquitous as the air we breathe. How
can you responsibly integrate social media in classrooms and think
through the policy for your school?   Get Guidelines and Resources

Design Thinking

Solve challenges in a thoughtful and fun way, and apply the 4Cs --
collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and communication -- to
your own work as you develop new solutions for your classroom, school,
and community.   Get Ideas for Your Classroom

Translating the Common Core

It's a misconception to assume that these standards merely require minor
tweaks to current curriculum and instructional practices. How are you
designing a coherent curriculum and assessment system for realizing the
standards' promise?   Get Ideas for Curriculum Planning

Evidence-Based Learning Strategies

Innovative ideas are always exciting, but educators making hard
decisions on how to reform the learning process need to arm themselves
with research on the critical elements of successful programs.   See
