TICAL - Technology Information Center for Administrative Leadership Remembering Why We're Educators by Tommy Tyler Many of the common problems school leaders are dealing with today are directly related to school finance and budgets. More and more school districts across Arkansas and the nation are struggling to maintain needed staffing, keep the technology upgraded, and provide sufficient bandwidth for today’s cloud-based services and learning resources. Money problems are so severe in some districts that they are formally listed as in "fiscal-distress." Five Arkansas districts are on the most recently posted list on the Arkansas Department of Education website, and 124 California districts find themselves in a similar fix.

E-Learning and Online Teaching Abstract: In today's hypermedia landscape, youth and young adults are increasingly using social media platforms, online aggregators and mobile applications for daily information use. Communication educators, armed with a host of free, easy-to-use online tools, have the ability to create dynamic approaches to teaching and learning about information and communication flow online. In this paper we explore the concept of curation as a student- and creation-driven pedagogical tool to enhance digital and media literacy education. We present a theoretical justification for curation and present six key ways that curation can be used to teach about critical thinking, analysis and expression online. E-Learning and Online Teaching
