Aspen Report: Learner at the Center of a Networked World
The Aspen Institute Task Force on Learning and the Internet has developed a bold, cross-sector, cross-partisan report that calls for rethinking learning systems that are currently too bound by time, place and old ways of doing business.
The report illustrates a new vision of learning that enables everyone to participate, to learn in their own style and to collaborate with others in doing so. To realize this vision, the report urges us to advance policies and practices that foster five essential principles: (1) Learning networks (2) Equity of access (3) Interoperability (4) Digital literacy (5) Learner safety, privacy and trust.

Enhancing the Art and Science of Teaching with Technology
Technology Integration vs. Implementation
Stratosphere by Michael Fullan
Integrating Technology, Pedagogy, and Change Knowledge
“It’s time to take the lid off learning.”
In Stratosphere, Michael Fullan takes a close look at the fast-paced world of emerging technologies and argues that the inevitable influence of technology on teaching and learning must not be resisted, but rather embraced and applied in meaningful ways to positively impact school classrooms.
