This app worked well and quickly. I took a photo of a few products from my cupboard and it identified them immediately, and offered access to the internet to learn more.

Thanks for trying it out Diana. We plan to submit an update today that adds a few more features. Any recommendations are welcome!

Tech Transformation: 1:1 programmes and personalized learning

Diana Petschauer's insight:

Maggie and Kathleen express my perspectives as well; phemonal blog and insight! It is difficult for me to assist a school and hear them say they have chosen to only adopt google apps or iPad apps, or have chosen between Apple or Android, or Mac rather than Windows...this stifles learning opportunities in many ways. Just as adults have learning prefernces and technology preferences (for work and personal use), our students can learn to make the same self-assessments about their own learning, and choose technology that works best for them and helps them succeed in school.

I must agree with Maggie on that 1:1 programs can support a personalized learning environment. I would add that in a personalized learning environment, helping learners develop the skills so that they can choose and use the technology for a task is key to help them become self-directed and independent. In an effective 1:1 program, each learner would have their own set of tools and apps to support their learning.

Students stuck in remote parts? There's an app for that

Students stuck in remote parts? There's an app for that | Assistive Technology for Education & Employment | Scoop.it

"Students on the University of Leicester's new distance learning MSc in security, conflict and international development face more challenges than the average distance learner. For example, some students might spend weeks with no access to an internet connection, working in a refugee camp in post-conflict countries. How does the university make sure these remote students have everything they needed to carry out their studies?"

Diana Petschauer's insight:

Excellent article: iPads and apps offering access to higher education, including those who study abroad in remote areas. Apps for the iPad that are phenomenal for college students include iAnnotate, ExplainEverything, Noteability, Notebook+, VoiceDream, EverNote, AudioNote, Typ-O HD, WolframAlpha, Readability, Dropbox, CloudOn, and CaseFiles by McGraw Hill.
