Subtext You Mean I Don’t Have to Show Up? The Promise of Telemedicine Photo Aside from whatever a visit to the doctor costs you in money, it also costs you in time. A lot of it. End to end, the travel and waiting time for a doctor’s appointment can take several hours — often disrupting work or school. In a year, Americans spend 2.4 billion hours making doctor visits. For certain kinds of health care, there is a better way. Telemedicine holds the promise of giving some of our time back. Some insurers are embracing it. Half its visits are virtual, and its C.E.O. reported that 80 percent of its dermatology cases involving are resolved by digital communication. Telemedicine may be more convenient, but is it worse care? The review also found that telemedicine helped diabetics maintain better control of their blood sugar, and that it led to lower and . Telemedicine can also bring care to rural locations. Telemedicine can’t work for every health issue. Another hitch: Some insurers resist it, perhaps fearing increased costs for no additional health benefits.

Manifesto for 21st Century Teacher Librarians | Teacher Librarian Editor’s Note: This article was originally published as a Tag Team Tech column on It has been reprinted and reproduced numerous times and in many places. We are making it available here to ensure that all of our readers have seen it. Manifesto for 21st Century Teacher Librarians By Joyce Kasman Valenza October 2010 A couple of summers back a young school librarian, fresh out of library school, asked a very honest question at one of our state retreats: We’re all doing different stuff. Well into the 21st century, it is clear that the concept of modern teacher librarian practice is not clear. What I know for sure is that if the Joyce who graduated from library school in 1976 (and again with a school specialty in 1988), heck, if the Joyce from the 2007/2008 school year, were to visit my library today, she would be stunned by the differences in my/our practice. And in my humble opinion some aspects of emerging practice are nonnegotiable. Reading Information Landscape 1. 2. 1.

Public High Schools (CPSS) / Committee on Public Secondary Schools Snapshot of K-12 Tech Landscape: More Districts Reach 1-to-1, But Equity Gaps Persist One of the biggest barriers facing ed-tech companies trying to integrate their products into schools is also one of the most fundamental: If students don’t have basic access to devices, K-12 companies’ ambitions are likely to run aground. A recent survey by the Consortium for School Networking reveals a landscape that is improving, in terms of the number of devices in schools–despite continued worries about equitable access to fast and reliable internet connectivity for all students. The organization’s latest infrastructure survey of district tech officials found that 40 percent of respondents said their systems offer one device per student. Forty-three percent expect to reach that threshold within three years: That’s a fairly big jump from CoSN’s survey in 2014, when just 23 percent of district respondents said they had achieved 1-to-1 computing capacity, and 35 percent envisioned reaching it within three years. Some districts have even bigger tech footprints.
