The value of quality curation is only going to increase exponentially. The trend will be to create long term value. People will want to keep their own record – from their Point of View. These are the curators who will build authority. The future vision of the Internet is an “alternative search engine” growing out of archived curation according to Permamarks 23-year old developer Matisse VerDuyn.
Permamarks appreciates being included on our views for the future of curation for the new Curatti project!
Foreign language teachers often lack sufficient understanding of the nature of dyslexia and the difficulties it causes in foreign language learning and are not familiar with the relevant teaching techniques and methods to further the language learning processes of dyslexic students. Therefore the preparation of teacher training materials for this target group of language learners is both timely and highly needed.
This site contains a free 10 unit course for teachers of English as a foreign language and helps them to support students in their classroom who have dyslexia.

I also believe that encouraging students to get ‘hands on’ with authentic apps has a much more important role in helping them to develop digital literacies which they can use outside of the classroom.
This posting looks at criteria for evaluating authentic apps for use in the educational environment.
The dramatic adaptation of ICT has in turn called for education reforms at various levels with a view to creating an enabling educational environment for next generations to effectively function in the digital era. Therefore, teachers’ capacity of integrating ICT into their teaching practices plays a critical role in achieving the goals of the education reform. In this regard, teacher education institutions (TEIs) have made great efforts to develop a new ICT curriculum (or course) or incorporate ICT components into their existing curriculum.
A really useful 105 page collection of case studies.
George Siemens and Stephen Downes developed a theory for the digital age, called connectivism, denouncing boundaries of behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism. Their proposed learning theory has issued a debate over whether it is a learning theory or instructional theory or merely a pedagogical view. While the theory presented is important and valid, is it a tool to be used in the learning process for instruction or curriculum rather than a standalone learning theory? It has forced educators to look at what is being done in digital education and rethink, debate, and philosophize over how each part fits. Continually evaluating how each new generation learns with regard to instruction and curriculum serves to hold education to high standards. Certainly this theory is worth our thorough consideration.
