The journey continues! Advanced mindsets for learning and teaching with technology

Week 2 of CEP 810 kicked off with 3 great articles on essential mindsets for professional growth, technology integration, and creation of modern learning environments.  In the first article, Will Richardson made us question “Why School?” and examine the purpose of formal education in an age of information abundance.  Following this was James Paul Gee’s article on the importance of effective technology implementation that included a stark reminder that aiding student learning with “situated meaning” does not entail a ‘free for all’ learning atmosphere, but rather a supremely crafted individualized learning experience.  The growth mindset emphasized in these articles was excellently summarized in the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) Standards, which emphasize the need for educators to be co-learners in the digital and global age.
