Understand when to reach for the tablet (or the laptop) - Daily Genius | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Occasionally you come across a kind of theological divide in EdTech around whether to focus on learning through the  iPad or via the laptop. Which is like wondering whether to have fish or vegetables for your dinner. Both are fine, but they don’t fill the same need.


The problem with seeing the laptop/iPad issue as an either or is that they can complement each other, not replace them. Effectively, you should see one as an instrument of consumption and one as an instrument of creation.


So, budget allowing (and recognizing that is not a trivial issue), schools should look at how the iPad can encourage the consumption of content, especially that which is ‘native’ to the hardware – content which encourages an almost physical interaction – using the fingers to zoom in on detail or to rotate or swipe. It’s that tactile element which is especially important for younger pupils.

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Download KML Data from Google Maps | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Last summer Google transitioned maps made with Classic Google Maps and Google Maps Engine Lite to their new My Maps platform. This morning I received an email from the Google Maps team announcing that you need to export the KML files of your original maps or lose them on June 1st when all maps will be forced into the new My Maps formatting. If you're happy with the way that the new version of your maps looks, there is nothing that you need to do. If you want to store the original KML file then you will need to export that file. I created the video embedded below to demonstrate how to export KML files from Google Maps.

Does it really take longer to create an online course?

Does it really take longer to create an online course? | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Researcher looks to empirical evidence to determine why teaching online courses seems to take more time than face-to-face courses.

 

Does the development, and teaching, of online courses really take longer than for face-to-face courses? One researcher recently set out to discover if these existing beliefs can be supported empirically, rather than anecdotally.

 

And though Lee A. Freeman, associate professor of MIS and Information Technology at the College of Business at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, did find these beliefs to have empirical support, the reasons why developing and teaching online courses take longer may be different than those propagated by “trade press and qualitative perceptions.”

For example, one key finding of Freeman’s study, “Instructor Time Requirements to Develop and Teach Online Courses” found that the widespread belief that a technology learning curve leads to increased time spent for developing online courses is incorrect. Often, it’s the pedagogical learning curve that hinders progress for professors teaching online courses.

 

Another finding indicates that after initial online course creation and delivery, professors see a notable decline in time needed for teaching, with time spent per course equaling that of a face-to-face course.

“Instructors, department chairs, deans, and program administrators have long believed that teaching online is more time-consuming than teaching face-to-face,” explained Freeman. “Many research studies and practitioner articles indicate instructor time commitment as a major inhibitor to developing and teaching online courses. However, while they identify the issue and provide possible solutions, they do not empirically measure actual time commitments or instructor perceptions when comparing online to face-to-face delivery and when comparing multiple iterations of delivery.”

Free Technology for Teachers: ArcGIS Online - Introduce Students to GIS Beyond What Google Maps Offers | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

When you're ready to move beyond basic placemarks there are more robust mapping tools than Google Maps. One of those tools is ESRI's ArcGIS Online.

ArcGIS Online is an expensive product for anyone that is not in a K-12 school. If you work in or attend a K-12 school then ArcGIS Online is free through ESRI's ConnectED program. Click here to apply for a free subscription.

ArcGIS Online provides students with the ability to create mash-ups of geographic data on a map. Students can add data layers to the whole map or to a section of a map. Students can use data that they select from the ArcGIS library or upload their own data files.

The Digital Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

The Digital Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Meet this year's tech innovators — eight men and women who are helping to drive change through education technology (or, in one case, questioning that technology). This is the third time in recent years that The Chronicle has showcased creative efforts to solve problems — to enliven the classroom, cut instructional costs, recruit more women into computer science, keep students on track to graduate, conduct cutting-edge research, and more. As part of the selection process, we asked readers and higher-education leaders for suggestions. We were just as interested in a scrappy project on a shoestring budget as we were in a big-ticket outlay. We also considered leaders in various sectors, so you'll meet a professor of the Harlem Renaissance, tech-company chief executives, a college president who paints on the side, and a registrar who's looking out for struggling students. The final selections were made by a group of Chronicle editors and reporters.

[PDF] An ontology for Open Rubric on the web

[PDF] An ontology for Open Rubric on the web | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

While the Internet has given educators access to a steady supply of Open Educational Resources, the educational rubrics commonly shared on the Web are generally in the form of static, non-semantic presentational documents or in the proprietary data structures of commercial content and learning management systems.


With the advent of Semantic Web Standards, producers of online resources have a new framework to support the open exchange of software-readable datasets. Despite these advances, the state of the art of digital representation of rubrics as sharable documents has not progressed. This paper proposes an ontological model for digital rubrics. This model is built upon the Semantic Web Standards of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), principally the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and Web Ontology Language (OWL).

In fact, these skills represent the ethos of the 21st century epoch, an era where knowledge economy and the social capital are so interdependently connected that it becomes extremely hard to decipher the dividing line between the two.
