"¿Cómo es el vínculo de los adolescentes del siglo XXI con la lectura? -plantea la autora-. La mayoría de los jóvenes (siete de cada diez) dice que le gusta leer, aun cuando no ubica los libros entre sus preferencias. En el último año, el 85 por ciento de los chicos leyó libros para la escuela. Pero sólo la mitad eligió alguno que no fuera de estudio. Y de ellos, la mayoría terminó sólo uno o dos títulos en todo el año. Los libros son los únicos bienes culturales que los chicos consideran 'viejos', posiblemente por su lectura lineal y en blanco y negro. Para los adolescentes, los libros están asociados con la escuela. La lectura de libros es una práctica en esencia solitaria y excluyente: se lee en soledad y sin realizar ninguna otra actividad en simultáneo (navegar por Internet o hablar por el celular)."

sí, mis sobrinos tienen toda clase de carrachos, pero al final con lo que más se entretienen es con los libros en papel. Hasta que no los manosean bien y los rompen no se quedan tranquilos, :-)

Genial la idea de materializar el libro en las manos, pero no ollviden que al digitalizar estamos salvando millones de arboles cada hoja le lleva a un árbol 12 años de su vida cada que utilizamos una son doce años de un árbol que lamentablemente muchos no replantamos. Hay que pensar en las generaciones futuras y quizas postergar un poco nuestro deleite de tener un libro en las manos. Piensenlo!!!
Nacho Vega's comment, May 31, 2013 5:20 AM
Todo es cuestión de interés y tecnología. Imaginar un material que se asemeja a un folio en tamaño y textura, que permite utilizar tinta electrónica para generar el contenido del libro/periódico. Sería un libro digital, que una vez cargado el contenido deseado, permita presentar el contenido como en los libros actuales. Además que nos dejará realizar las acciones de pasar página o volver atrás como parte de la "interface". Si le añadimos opciones de subrayado, selección, compartir en redes sociales y redes de curación de contenido, acceso a comentarios y vídeos de otros lectores... Lo sé, algo que parece futurista, sin embargo la tecnología actual permite realizar bastantes de estas funcionalidades. Salvar nuestros bosques aunque por ahora sea soñando con algo así... El tiempo dirá.

The Best PowerPoint Alternatives for Creating Great Presentations - The Digital Shift

The Best PowerPoint Alternatives for Creating Great Presentations - The Digital Shift | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

We’ve all endured “death by PowerPoint.” It’s a painful experience for the audience and probably not all that fun for the presenter either. To help my students deliver effective presentations—free of those deadly bullet points—I have my go-to applications.

First, a good presentation begins with a clearly outlined story. Even presentations that are strictly fact-based can have a narrative. I always have students write outlines for the stories their presentations are going to tell, and I offer them a choice of outlining tools, including Text2MindMap, Penultimate, and that reliable standby, Google Documents.

A strong advocate for including digital literacy in medical education, self-described “geek medical futurist”Bertalan Meskó, MD, PhD, believes that online communication tools, such as social media, can improve the way medicine is practiced and health care is delivered. His interest in technology and health care led him to create a university course focusing on bringing the web into medical practice and to launch Webicina, which offers curated social media resources in 140 topics and 20 languages for patients and medical professionals for free.

Make Presentations and Publish on the Web with Flowboard - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education

 

Now that I do all my conference travel with only an iPad, I’ve been looking for better solutions to creating presentations and content while on the road. One of the most interesting of these is the recently released free appFlowboard. The free storage includes 250 MB, which seems like enough for most projects, but there is a premium for more storage. Unfortunately Flowboard requires iOS 6 and an iPad, but it creates presentations that are published through its platform and easily viewed on the web, rather like Prezi.

Special Edition: ePortfolios - UAE Journal of Educational Technology and eLearning

Introduction:

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) Journal of Educational Technology and eLearning (eJournal) was started in 2009 to create a platform for sharing best practices. It is a publication for the educators of the Middle-East and Gulf region. The journal is available in a print format, and soon online as an open journal multi-media resource, including an associated iPad app soon to be released.

 


Call for Abstracts:

 

The editorial board has invited Susan Bainbridge to compile a special edition of the eJournal, to be published in March 2014. The topic is ePortfolios.

ePortfolios are becoming increasingly important in Higher Education. Their value for learners includes an increased understanding of the importance of reflection, improvement in organizational skills, critical thinking skills, ICT skills and knowledge construction. They are a valuable assessment tool for instructors offering a more holistic view of a learner’s progress and development. Submissions can include, but are not limited to: research on theory, practical application, assessment, particular ePortfolio tools/applications, or practitioner experience of implementing ePortfolios into a program.

Submissions are welcome from researchers worldwide. View this link to review the submission guidelines, themes and standards for publication:
