PFT Vol 2 Episode 40 (91) MINING THE GAP
Mining the Gap: iTunes University (PFT vindicated), Learning Through Listening,
Grad Casts, Robots & Scratch, Tech Update on VISTA, Digital Divide (articles),
Brain and a Book
This week Kathy and Mark continue probing the teaching, learning, achievement, and Instructional Technology gaps
that block the highway to 21st Century learning. Sifting instructional gems from mountains of "edu-junk", they observe
student robots hauling nuggets of learning to the surface, watch a fellow traveler just beginning to"Scratch" the surface
as he excavates a well worn book for old/new tech news, and applaud accomplished diggers busy mining deep veins
of ore for meaning
.

the availability of coursecasts as entertainment for lifelong learners, knowledge geeks,

loosening Dick and Jane's digital leash, they reflect on the work of colleagues who use Skype
and its helper Pamela and the many ways it can be used to expand teaching and learning.

Education schools have 'not kept pace with changing ... technology,' group says
From eSchool News staff and wire service reports Despite some examples of success, the majority of today's teacher-education programs are engaged in a "pursuit of irrelevance," having failed to keep pace with substantial changes in technology, student demographics, and global competition, according to a new report from the non-partisan Education Schools Project. The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education said it welcomed the report and agreed with some, though not all, of its recommendations.
