How to Implement Problem Based Learning with ICTs Posted by Shelly Terrell on Friday, November 8th 2013 From the Cool Sites Series “All kids need is a little help, a little hope and somebody who believes in them.” How to Be Good with Tech - Part 1 I’ve been working with computers for over 30 years. I have also worked with teachers and students as an instructional tech coordinator for the past six years. Helping them use more technology (and working with some who resist) has driven home one point time and time again: Being “good with tech” is largely a way of thinking. There’s no magic or involved. I'd even argue there aren't hours of training sessions involved.

While in the process of critical thinking, ideas should be reasoned and well thought out/judged.

Center for Nanotechnology in Society at Arizona State University (CNS-ASU) The Virtual Institute for Responsible Innovation (VIRI) was created to accelerate the formation of a community of scholars and practitioners who, despite divides in geography and political culture, will create a common concept of responsible innovation for research, training and outreach – and in doing so contribute to the governance of emerging technologies under conditions dominated by high uncertainty, high stakes, and challenging questions of novelty. “Responsible innovation” (RI) is an emerging term in science and innovation policy fields across the globe. Its precise definition has been at the center of numerous meetings, research council decisions, and other activities in recent years.
