Technology at the service of the learning experience.

I wonder what Dewey would think about the use of digital technologies in School today? Parents and teachers have to help children integrate digital technologies wisely into their lives.

Each year, CORE Education’s experienced staff of researchers, education trainers, and technology experts pool their knowledge and expertise, and through a thorough process put together and publish CORE’s prognosis on what are the coming ten major trends in eLearning and education generally that will make an impact upon education in New Zealand (and other parts of the world) in the coming year.

Alan Ovens's curator insight, May 17, 2014 5:33 PM

Interesting while not attending to the fact that the education is becoming a market place where business principles and ethics will dominate and constrain education.

Miami-Dade Schools Jumpstart 1-to-1 — Again -- THE Journal

Miami-Dade Schools Jumpstart 1-to-1 — Again -- THE Journal | Education- Securing the Future | Scoop.it

By Dian Schaffhauser01/27/14

According to reporting in the Miami Herald, the sizable Miami-Dade County Public Schools will begin rolling out computing devices as part of a 1-to-1 program, beginning in February. Elementary school students are in line to receive 13,000 laptops, and seventh grade civics students and freshman taking world history will receive 15,000 tablets.

The paper stated that the initiative was expected to hand out 100,000 devices by August 2015. The Florida district has about 348,000 students.

Superintendent Alberto Carvalho had set the program on pause a few months ago following a spate of bad press regarding 1-to-1 school initiatives in other parts of the country.

In an attempt to maintain greater control over security, most of the devices won't be going home with students. Carvalho said he expects to deploy about 1,000 devices for school and home use in the spring and another 1,500 in the fall. Following each phase of the overall deployment, the district will assess the impact the technology is making on learning and instruction.

The entire endeavor is being funded through a nine-year, $1.2 billion general obligation bond initiative passed in 2012 that encompassed renovation of aging school buildings and providing educational technology upgrades for all schools.

The Pen Is Mightier Than the Keyboard: Advantages of Longhand over Laptop Note Taking ~ Psychological Science

The Pen Is Mightier Than the Keyboard: Advantages of Longhand over Laptop Note Taking ~ Psychological Science | Education- Securing the Future | Scoop.it

by Pam Mueller & Daniel Oppenheimer

 

Abstract

"Taking notes on laptops rather than in longhand is increasingly common. Many researchers have suggested that laptop note taking is less effective than longhand note taking for learning. Prior studies have primarily focused on students’ capacity for multitasking and distraction when using laptops. The present research suggests that even when laptops are used solely to take notes, they may still be impairing learning because their use results in shallower processing. In three studies, we found that students who took notes on laptops performed worse on conceptual questions than students who took notes longhand. We show that whereas taking more notes can be beneficial, laptop note takers’ tendency to transcribe lectures verbatim rather than processing information and reframing it in their own words is detrimental to learning."

Writing engages the brain differently and avoids distractions. This must be disappointing for those who promote eliminating cursive from School.

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

I tried this out on some longish pieces...1000 words or more. The tool did a very good job of reducing several articles by about 50-60% in size, while preserving very well the meaning of the selection. I did this about 4 times and was quite impressed with the quality of the summaries. This could prove quite useful for students of all ages, as well as busy educators.
