How to create a student-centered digital classroom - eClassroom News | eClassroom News | 2 Creating this student-centered workshop setting, in which students often choose what to do and how to demonstrate mastery skills, takes patience and perseverance. The key to success is teaching students many web tools, which they can place in their “technology toolkit,” an online world of applications and programs that can be used in many ways to discover concepts and to curate information. From the beginning of the year, we learn new websites and applications. No more than a month in, students have six to 10 resources in their tech toolkit. Now, when they work on a project, they decide which tools are most effective and will best demonstrate inquiry of knowledge and mastery of skills.

8 digital learning myths dispelled Digital learning’s popularity is skyrocketing, but many myths go undisputed As digital learning in the classroom gains more support from educators, parents, and students, a national education group has released a toolkit that defines digital and blended learning, offering tips to help promote the benefits of a more digital-centric education. The Center for Education Reform’s 2014 Digital Learning Toolkit defines blended learning as “an approach that involves a myriad of delivery mechanisms via online tools for students, no matter where they live or attend school.” The toolkit offers tips on how to debunk myths about online learning, ways to change public discourse, and how to clearly promote and express blended learning’s benefits to community leaders, the media, and policymakers. According to the toolkit, one key tip involves using data to back up arguments in favor of digital and blended learning, because data showing real results can have a powerful impact.
