Researchers want to know more about how teens are spending their time in the digital age, but it’s tricky. If a kid is looking at a book, you can assume he or she is reading. But when it comes to looking at a smartphone or tablet, who knows?
A survey of data shows a marked drop in teenagers reading for pleasure. Researchers are trying to figure out whether the explosion of e-reading and digital diversions is behind the decline.

"When you're using digital tools and other social media it's like you're yelling out the front door of your school because you are so proud of something."
Leaders who demonstrate a continual desire to learn and connect whenever possible help set a precedence of transparency and innovation in a school's culture.

"How do you do it with 30 students in a classroom. What does it look like and how does it work?"

3 ways to support teachers as they adapt to a changing education landscape @CTuckerEnglish http://ow.ly/P43H2 #edchat #cpchat
In 1964, Bob Dylan sang, "The times they are a changin'." This is as true today as it was then. Technology is playing a major role in the changes happening now. This can be exciting or scary depending on your perspective. When I work with teachers, it's clear that many are resistant to the changes

Could this proposed accountability system offer more flexibility without sacrificing quality? @edweek http://ow.ly/P42p1 #edchat
Under one vision, states and the federal government would set goals for student achievement, but the states would be able to use any strategies they wanted to get there.

"Catch yourself every time you’re systematically mis-predicting who can and who can’t do what among your children. We mis-predict among race, gender, socio-economic status, and standardized test. It’s not democratic and it’s not moving us forward."
Word to the wise: "Catch yourself every time you're systematically mis-predicting who can and who can't do what among your children. We mis-predict among race, gender, socio-economic status, and standardized test. It's not democratic and it's not moving us forward," says Larry Rosenstock, co-founder of High Tech High.

"We’re modeling democracy at work, with self-directed projects, where students can mediate conflicts, make laws, and contribute to [school policies]."
The goal of Teacher Powered Schools initiative, led by Education Evolving, is to seed a movement that will inspire other teachers in schools across the country to realize their potential as leaders.

Maker Faire has catalyzed a global interest in tinkering to understand. Is it only a matter of time before this approach to learning makes it into mainstream classrooms?

"The question is no longer what did the teacher teach today, the question is now what interesting question did you explore in school. This indicates a shift in learning towards higher level thinking skills."
These days, students can walk into a classroom and use their tablet or smartphone as the AR device to trigger to original content made on movie-making software and posted to YouTube, leading to an immediate and immersive learning experience.
