Technology-Rich Learning

The March issue of Educational Leadership (ASCD) is all about Technology-Rich Learning. I actually read it cover to cover. Great articles by Marzono, Tomlinson, and Tom Hoerr (Ellen's former principal)

Students First, Not Stuff

Will Richardson
Technologies reframe learning, but educators reimagine schooling.

New Literacies and the Common Core

William Kist
Strategies for learning the fundamentals of reading, writing, and comprehending in the information age.

Flip Your Students' Learning

Aaron Sams and Jonathan Bergmann
Flipped learning is not about how to use video but about how to use students' time.
From "Perspectives"
This issue of Educational Leadership marks the eighth issue that EL has dedicated to technology. (The first with the word "technology" in the title was published in 1968.) As the editors read through submissions, we found the articles fell into several categories: essays from futurists who believe schools are neglecting the revolutionary potential of technology on learning (pp. 10, 22); articles from groundbreaking educators who are experimenting with new student-centered approaches like flipped learning and video screencasts (pp. 16, 28, 84); reports on research and the lack thereof when it comes to knowing what works best for students (pp. 32, 44, 78); and, finally, many articles from educators who are trying to weave tradition and technology into what Catlin R. Tucker (p. 57) calls "a durable education fabric."
