Automating Education? / Embed Digital Citizenship / Praise That Matters

AUtomating ED
Education is the most difficult sector to automate. Automation is disrupting industries and the employment sector by putting a lot of people out of work. This might not be the case for the sector of education. @JosephineMisson @wooclap @thinkm2

Don’t teach digital citizenship — embed it! – Kids do best when they can learn something authentically, by figuring out their own answers to real-world problems that are relevant to their lives. @hmarrs24 @iste @s_bearden

The Trouble with “Amazing”: Giving Praise that Matters. If you’re trying to motivate someone—a student, an employee, your child—calling them amazing won’t pump them up the way you hope it will. @cultofpedagogy @bethhill2829
