Looks really useful for live online sessions and when used in tendem with Skype for audio interactions this provides a good alternative to web-conferncing tools like WiZiQ or Adobe Connect Pro.

Goodbye Textbooks! Students Are Embracing the Move to Digital Learning [Infographic]

Goodbye Textbooks! Students Are Embracing the Move to Digital Learning [Infographic] | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it
Students can’t live without their devices, so schools should embrace the change.

 

Tablets are being adopted at an impressive rate, and tablet purchases are expected to outpace smartphone purchases over the next two years. Tablet ownership among college students has correspondingly skyrocketed and a Pearson Foundation survey found that it has tripled from a year ago. One-quarter of college students currently own a tablet.

The Pros And Cons Of Social Media In Education [INFOGRAPHIC]

The Pros And Cons Of Social Media In Education [INFOGRAPHIC] | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

In less than a decade, social media has had a tremendous impact on the world around us. Businesses of all sizes can leverage platforms such as Twitter and Facebook to build large, engaged communities, raise awareness and drive footfall. Equally, social media empowers consumers to make smarter decisions, engage with brands and demand better customer service. Social media is also playing a significant role in the education system, with many schools and universities eager to adopt the use of these tools in the classroom. Managed correctly, these channels can be a great boon for students. But poor understanding of the medium can result in a low level of maintenance and interaction, which can be detrimental to student satisfaction and engagement rates.

Apps for multiple intelligences | ipadders.eu

Apps for multiple intelligences | ipadders.eu | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it
What makes the iPad brilliant is that it caters to all different intelligences. In fact most apps touch upon all different types of intelligences. I've tried to match all of my favorite educational apps with their corresponding intelligences.

 

For those apps that matched with more than one, I’ve used equivalents. For example, Showme and Educreations are interactive whiteboard apps that have got the same functions and both fit in the Visual and Aural box. Just like I don’t believe all students fit only in one intelligence box either. All skills need to be developed and the iPad especially makes it do easy to jump from one to the other and more importantly incorporate the different intelligences.

10 BYOT / BYOD Back to School Basics

10 BYOT / BYOD Back to School Basics | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Gone are the days where students sit neatly in rows all prepared with the same back to school supplies ready to consume instruction. As the 2012/13 school year approaches, one thing is clear. One-size-fits-all is out and personalization is in. This doesn’t only apply to the classroom instruction, it also applies to the mobile devices your students choose to use for learning.

 

===> Today student choice = personalization. The teacher sets the learning goals, but students choose their own tools or learning. <===

 

Gust MEES: Don't forget about IT-Security and be aware of the malware! "Nobody is Perfect!", so ALL "OS" are vulnerable and especially smartphones and any other device connecting to Internet also! And there are also a lot of Apps around who are malicious...

 

===> Take care and as teacher and educator take your ===> responsibilities <=== to educate your learners of the dangers of Internet and How-To protect best! <===

 

In 21st Century while using "Bring Your Own Device" (Hashtag for Twitter = #BYOD) there is a MUST to know about basic IT-Security knowledge! The teachers role is NOT anymore to be the MOST important person, but the LEARNER!

 

So the teacher needs to have that basic knowledge to share it with its learners and to try to keep a safe Learning Workspace... Online and Offline, in the "internal learning network" and also in the "external learning network"!

 

As Teachers, Educators and Instructors we have to deal with Apps, OpenSource software, Freeware, different OS devices, so we need to know about the risks and dangers! We need to know how to get protected these devices also!

 

It's not ONLY the IT-Admin's responsibility, IT-Security is the responsibility of ALL of us!!!

EdTechSandyK's comment, August 3, 2012 12:13 PM
When I rescooped your post, I did not realize I was erasing someone else's comments. I thought I was just cleaning up extra-text that had been auto-inserted at some point. I was also concerned that there was a malware warning included in what I thought was auto-generated text; I did not want to keep links with the post that might spread malware.

I am still learning about the ins and outs of ScoopIt; it is unfortunate that you jumped immediately to the conclusion that I was censoring you because that was not my intention. Per your request, I will remove the re-scoop post my topic, since I now understand the comments were inserted by a user but do not want to share links that might include malware. Thank you for contacting me. I apologize for my unintended offense.
Gust MEES's comment, August 3, 2012 12:18 PM
Hi Sandy,

OK, everything alright now. My apologies for having reacted also that way, but when it is about Censorship of my own text...

Concerning "malware", You don't have to fear about my links, just have a look at my profile on the bottom of my free IT-Security courses (links above in the text) and You will understand that they are secure ;)

Have a great day,
Gust
Gust MEES's comment, August 3, 2012 12:25 PM
Hi Sandy,

It is important that learners get told how to protect their BYOD-Devices and to know also about the dangers with it. So that's why I included thta special text with links. When now someone makes a rescoop of your "rescooped" censored #scoopit then it would:

1.) Not include my original text with advice and links
2.) Other people who will "rescoop" from your #scoopit will also not get that important knoledge

Have a great day,
Gust
