Are you supporting new fashioned learning in the workplace?

The world is changing, and more and more information is being created and disseminated on a daily basis. New domains of knowledge are appearing which have to be structured and organized. New ideas are being added to old domains. We experience this constant flow of new information in our personal social media channels every day, and many people are already developing new skills to help them make sense of all this new information. This is the essence of “new fashioned” learning.

The iPad – What it should and shouldn’t be for Education

The iPad – What it should and shouldn’t be for Education | Silvana Richardson | Scoop.it

I started the year thinking the iPad was the one stop solution. I’ve come to believe now that a multi device option is preferable. 1:1 iPads would be great in an ideal world but the financial reality for school with substantial investments in other tech already doesn’t make it practical for a complete change. My school already has a lot of laptops and desktops in use. They are used for many valid purposes such as those listed above. It’s not reasonable to think we would replace all our resources with just iPads when there are good things already being done with them.
