LaiaJoana's insight:

Today there are over six billion mobile phone subscriptions worldwide, and for every one person who accesses the internet from a computer two do so from a mobile device. Given the ubiquity and rapidly expanding functionality of mobile technologies, UNESCO is enthusiastic about their potential to improve and facilitate learning, particularly in communities where educational opportunities are scarce. This Working Paper Series scans the globe to illuminate the ways in which mobile technologies can be used to support the United Nations Education for All Goals; respond to the challenges of particular educational contexts; supplement and enrich formal schooling; and make learning more accessible, equitable, personalized and flexible for students everywhere.

If you like learning, could I recommend analytics? - | About learning and more | Scoop.it

There’s something that drives me a little crazy when I hear about how someone has learned from Netflix, Amazon, Google, etc., and that they’re going to be the Netflix, Amazon, or Google of education.  Actually there are a few things.

There is a natural tendency to want to leverage the work of others.  In the burgeoning space of learning analytics many look to those who have large data sets and algorithms to extract some kind of meaning from those massive stores of information.  We should always be looking to leverage when we can!  This time, though, our takeaways are limited.

Design Thinking for Educators

Design Thinking for Educators | About learning and more | Scoop.it
Design Thinking is a mindset. Design Thinking is the confidence that everyone can be part of creating a more desirable future, and a process to take action when faced with a difficult challenge. That kind of optimism is well needed in education.

Welcome to the 3rd edition of the eJournal. All UAE Higher Education Federal Institutes have embraced iPads for their Foundation programs. The mobile learning initiative is creating an interplay between Pedagogy, Technology and Content, and is transforming teaching and learning environments. An early indication of the initiative’s success is demonstrated by the increased adoption of Challenge Based Learning and Flipped Classrooms among teachers. The mobile journey has begun and its impact can be felt as you read through the 3rd eJournal edition.

The Four Student Archetypes Emerging in MOOCs -

The Four Student Archetypes Emerging in MOOCs - | About learning and more | Scoop.it

As discussed in my last post, the focus on “completion rates” in MOOCs is somewhat misplaced, as open education is not simply an extension of traditional education. As several others have noted, not every student is attempting to complete a course, and in fact different students have different goals while participating in the same open course. This holds true for both cMOOCs and xMOOCs.

The Flipped Classroom - Instructional Module: Resources & Links

The Flipped Classroom - Instructional Module: Resources & Links | About learning and more | Scoop.it

For years, students have grown accustomed to traditional methods of instruction where teachers fill the role of "sage on the stage," imparting their wisdom during allotted class time then sending work home to reinforce learned concepts with little or no added support. As a result, students exist as mere listeners on the receiving end of a one-way communication process that does little to promote social interaction or encourage critical thought. In an effort to "flip" this trend of passive learning, teachers are now utilizing technology to implement a blended learning method that frees up class time for collaborative activities by shifting lectures out of the classroom and on to the internet. This method, known as a "flipped" classroom, combines the benefits of direct instruction and active learning to engage students in the educational process.

Teaher's Guide to Information Crap Detection ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | About learning and more | Scoop.it

 

Information overload, information crap,information pollution...are some of the words that are being used now to describe the tsunami of irrelevant information we are bombarded with day and night.In  December 2009, Google began customizing its search results for all users, and we entered a new era of personalization. With little notice or fanfare, our online experience is changing, as the websites we visit are increasingly tailoring themselves to us.Everywhere you turn you find information that seems relevant to you but in fact is nothing but crap. This is probably why Eli Pariser recommended what he called Information Bubble.
