Comment créer un livre numérique au format EPUB : Guide complet | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it

Le livre numérique entre dans notre quotidien : familles, entreprises, établissements d’enseignement, lieux de formation et d’apprentissages, entreprises, institutions, bibliothèques et EPN. Si la question de la consommation de livres numériques est résolue pour les acteurs des industries culturelles, l’interrogation sur lacréation de livres numériquesdemeure une réalité difficile à aborder par les auteurs et les personnes.

Le guide est disponible aussi au format PDF, téléchargeable.

Language learning: the shaky future of study (and work) abroad | Applied linguistics and knowledge engineering | Scoop.it
Unless the government develops a coherent languages strategy, student mobility is threatened, says Anne Marie Graham
Pascual Pérez-Paredes's insight:

Another year, another fall (5%) in the number of language A-levels taken. The UK curriculum's first choice foreign languages, French and German, have been declining in popularity for more than a decade. And although numbers studying other languages, including Spanish and Arabic, have increased, they're not enough to buck the overall downward trend.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 11, 2013 9:00 AM

The term digital native is an oversimplication and is not overly accurate. Research in Australia and England are showing power users in undergrad programs make up about 14% of the students. What about the rest? One thing about Prensky's work is he does acknowledge that technology has to fit with school and learning in an integrated manner.

 

As I read the article, I realized this concerns about the pace of technology have been with us for some time, perhaps since time began. Hannah Arendt argued the pace of technology had outpaced our ability to speak about it coherently in the 1950's.
