  • Technology and the Achievement Gap

    1/1/05 - Patterson, Nancy

    All children must be provided with access to computer technology and the Internet. Children write more and better when they are allowed to use word processing programs to write, and they write even better when teachers allow them to go public with their writing through the use of online portfolios or through Web publishing. Middle school teachers can amplify their voice about the role of technology in education by joining the National Council of Teachers of English and the International...

    1/1/06 - Neuman, Susan B., Celano, Donna

    This study examines children's uses of reading resources in neighborhood public libraries that have been transformed to "level the playing field."

    The MILE Guide helps districts determine where they are on the spectrum of 21st century skills integration and then use that information to plan a path for future work that brings 21st century skills in their systems of learning. No 21st century skills implementation can be successful without developing core academic subject knowledge and understanding among all students. Students who can think critically and communicate effectively must build on a base of core academic subject knowledge...

  • The Mind Shift in Teacher Evaluation: Where We Stand - and Where We Need to Go

    Minnici, Angela

    The teaching profession today is full of contradictions: Teach the whole child, but focus on specific needs. Integrate 21st-century technology, yet go back to the basics. While often cited as one of the most rewarding professions, teaching is demanding, technically challenging, and more closely scrutinized by the public than ever. Although we better understand how children learn and how to support and develop educators, teachers today report more dissatisfaction with their jobs and are less...

    The new digital divide: Where are our girls?

    1/16/09 - Kimberly Scott

    "Despite the presence of the first African American in America’s highest political position, this success does not necessarily cross gender and/or social class boundaries. Importantly, women of color are less likely to enter technology fields than White females (see Goode & Margolis, 2004; Margolis & Fisher, 2003; NSF, 2006) To explain this phenomenon requires consideration of how a girl’s race, gender, social class, context, and community involvement work together to create their...

  • Three Ways to Encourage Student Discovery

    1/29/14 - Duggan, Terri

    Students love technology. It’s that simple. When I present a new tool or application, the hush that falls over the room is unlike other more traditional lessons. The speed at which they embrace and implement new tools is rapid and typically self-directed. The students easily help and support each other as well. But, are they prepared to be effective users of ideas? Is the goal to be a great app user or do we want them to be responsible global digital citizens who contribute to the new...
