Student Preferences for Mobile App Usage | EDUCAUSE.edu

Student Preferences for Mobile App Usage | EDUCAUSE.edu | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Mobile learning is increasingly an integral part of higher education, and colleges and universities developing mobile learning apps generally face the decision to pursue either device-neutral web applications or “native” apps built for a specific platform. In fall 2011, Purdue University surveyed students to try to understand their preferences for mobile apps. Specifically, the survey investigated student ownership of various devices, preferences for device usage for various activities, and perceptions of the value of different kinds of apps. The bulletin also includes a brief case study of Purdue’s Studio projects, which developed new forms of mobile learning technologies.

Ahora te ofrezco otros que no son menos importantes que los anteriores y proceden de la investigación, el estudio, las posiciones teóricas de los estudiosos de este ámbito, etc. Vamos, que no son ocurrencias de última hora. Algunos son reflexiones mías al hilo de "genialidades" que se les ocurren a algunas personas. Esta será la última entrada del mes de Julio.

¡No creo que existan los 'superdotados', en mi clase no hay ninguno! ¿Estás seguro?

The Six Thinking Hats – Teaching How to Think |

The Six Thinking Hats – Teaching How to Think | | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Much has been written and debated on learning models. For example, Kolb’s model, based on Experiential Learning Theory, states that learning is the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience.

Kolb goes on to say that in order to gain genuine knowledge from an experience, the learner must have four abilities:

  1. The learner must be willing to be actively involved in the experience;
  2. The learner must be able to reflect on the experience;
  3. The learner must possess and use analytical skills to conceptualize the experience;
  4. The learner must possess decision-making and problem solving skills in order to use the new ideas gained from the experience.

The Benefits of Learning as a Team

The Benefits of Learning as a Team | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
don’t divide the world into the weak and the strong, or the successes and the failures,” said sociologist Benjamin Barber. “I divide the world into learners and non-learners.”

As each of us takes on more responsibility, we seem to misplace the necessity of learning. We learn through our actions and from feedback, but how often do we sit down to distill our failures or mistakes into actionable lessons? How often do we connect seemingly unrelated ideas or insights to challenge our comfort zones?

How else do we get better at what we do?

Privacy and the use of learning analytics | Tony Bates

Privacy and the use of learning analytics | Tony Bates | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

cprMaking sense of learning analytics

The Open University has always collected data on students since it started. In fact, McIntosh, Calder and Smith (1976) found that statistically, the best predictor of success was whether a student returned a questionnaire in the first week of a course, as this indicated their commitment. It still didn’t tell you what to do about the students who didn’t return the questionnaire. (In fact, the OU’s solution at the time was not to count anyone as an enrolment until they had completed an assignment two weeks into the course – advice that MOOC proponents might pay attention to).

As with so many technology developments, the issue is not so much the technology but how the technology is used, and for what purposes. Conscientious instructors have always tried to track or monitor the progress of individual students and learning analytics merely provides a more quantitative and measurable way of tracking progress. The issue though is whether the data you can track and measure can offer solutions when students do run into trouble.

My fear is that learning analytics will replace the qualitative assessment that an instructor gets from, for instance, participating in a live student discussion, monitoring an online discussion forum, or marking assignments. This is more likely to identify the actual conceptual or learning problems that students are having and is more likely to provide clues to the instructor about what needs to be done to address the learning issues. Indeed in a discussion the instructor may be able to deal with it on the spot and not wait for the data analysis. Whether a student chooses to study late at night, for instance, or only reads part of a textbook, might provide a relatively weak correlation with poorer student performance, but recommending students not to stay up late or to read all the textbook may not be the appropriate response for any individual student, and more importantly may well fail to identify key problems with the teaching or learning.
