15/05/2016 - Schools increasingly need to prepare young people for an interconnected world where they will live and work with people from different backgrounds and cultures. As a first step to understanding young people’s attitudes, values and knowledge of global issues, the OECD is currently working on a new test to be included in the 2018 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). At the meeting of G7 Education Ministers that took place in Kurashiki, Japan, on 14 May, Ministers noted that this assessment may well provide a metric to measure progress in this area.
I often use the term ‘digital imperative’ to describe why and how learning needs to be digital, online and embrace both local as well as global learning modes. Digital fluency includes learning in both synchronous and asynchronous learning environments coupled with the ability to create and co create ideas, artefacts, solutions. The potential to use digital and online technologies to learn with the world and impact positively the lives of others is something we did not have when I went to high school….but we have it now, so let’s apply it!

From today, Twitter is cutting back on what types of content will use up its 140-character limit.
Now, @names in replies, media attachments (like photos, GIFs, videos, and polls) and quoted Tweets will no longer be counted against the valuable 140 characters that make up a tweet. This allows for richer public conversations that are easier to follow on Twitter and ensures people can attach media to tweets without sacrificing the characters they have to express themselves.
