Book 'em? These days, students more likely to use online resources

Book 'em? These days, students more likely to use online resources | "Academic literacy" | Scoop.it

At Izatt, 80 per cent of the students have some form of electronic device, and that's how they prefer to learn, she said. But it's not just a simple matter of some new form of 'open the textbook to page 36, read, memorize, close the book, repeat five periods a day.' The students now not only consume information, but more importantly, they produce it, Hobson said.

Interesting article on the shift to digital text books.

Rosemary Tyrrell's curator insight, September 4, 2014 4:18 PM

Interesting. I would have thought the number was actually higher. Even though 80% is a big number, it's still important to keep in mind that means 20% don't have such a device.

It does work with Mac, I've just checked. It might be a problem of the browser, not the app.

What’s the big deal about Blogging? | "Academic literacy" | Scoop.it

A writer’s work will quickly improve with a real audience. Writing for an audience of only one is a tedious process. This is the preferred method in education. The writer needs to wait for the composition to be graded. Of course the student writer can always shake off the teacher’s criticism; because the writer is convinced the teacher hates him anyway. With comments from a real audience providing proper feedback, the writer gets a better sense of impact on the audience as well as recognition for accuracy and focus.
