EWC Students Integrating Social Media Tools

As I teach Educational Technology course 250 the dynamic benefits of
Social Media there is an influx of digital technologies that are embedding
themselves in future careers of these students. Technology gradually
changes my student’s career choices, lifestyles and the decisions they
make in connecting with others in a digital environment. The instructional
components change as the integration of technology changes the role of
the instructor from a lecturer to a facilitator of learning.

Florida Gets Flexibility Waiver from US Department of Education

 

The U.S. Department of Education today approved Florida’s request for a flexibility waiver from the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). Florida was one of 11 states asking for flexibility with regard to accountability standards mandated by the No Child Left Behind legislation implemented in 2001. The state requested the waiver to be able to move to a single statewide accountability system that would eliminate duplicative regulation and make Florida’s system easier to understand.
