‘A’ Assignment #1: Teaching and Learning in a Digital Age
Throughout my research on teaching and learning in a digital age I have come across a lot of interesting article that I believe everyone would like.
Here are the articles that I found:

I learned some recommendations such as redesign learning environments so that students can learn anywhere, anytime, at any place and at any pace, enhance the ability of educators to support and guide learners in a networked learning environment, build an infrastructure that will connect students no matter where they learn, ensure that digital resources can work together, adopt policies that rank digital, media and social emotional literacies as basic skills in the Digital Age, and create trusted learning environments.
One thing I learned is about technology masters which are school leaders. Here is the way to get there: develop three to five technology guideposts for the school, create an adaptive culture, develop a good technology team, develop processes around technology, differentiate between “digital learning” and “digital plumbing”, and consider measurements.
In the website https://webspm.com/Articles/2015/09/01/Teaching-Learning-Digital-Age.aspx it says, “The net generation — a cohort of young adults born between 1982 and 1991 — has arguably influenced the modern learning environment more than any other generation before it. Net Gens came into this world as masters of technology. They learned to use devices before they learned to walk and talk. And when they entered school, educators realized this tech-savvy contingent exhibited a unique method of learning, a style that was quite different than previous generations. Districts and education designers keeping pace with tech-savvy students are collectively rethinking traditional school facility design. We’ve moved beyond the “classroom” as the space for learning and have adapted our designs to support more active and social learning. The common denominator found in every space is technology. Suites of varying shapes and sizes create environments where students can work digitally and socially. Advanced labs equipped with the latest amenities allow students to build contraptions and solve problems with their hands. Technology can be leveraged for more collaborative work. It also can stimulate critical thinking and encourage students to take ownership over their personalized learning path. As a K-12 education designer, I want to incorporate fundamental design elements that will maintain relevance for years to come. Some of these features include flexibility and agility, an expansive technology infrastructure, connectivity, and interactive learning spaces.”
