First Take: Here a Screen, There a Screen, Everywhere a Screen Screen…A Good Thing for our Kids?

First Take: Here a Screen, There a Screen, Everywhere a Screen Screen…A Good Thing for our Kids? | Brain-Friendly Learning | Scoop.it

Via Ivon Prefontaine
Mirko Ganarin's insight:

First steep in my opinion: Parents need to know at least a bit of what the Internet, Facebook and Co. is about. I'll try to keep an open mind and engage myself in the new field of social interaction, but it is challenging. However, I feel that only by experiencing the whole thing by my self I can be of any help to my offspring. Either by encouraging or restricting the use screens in our lives.

We need to find ways to integrate those screens into the lives of children and adults alike. Without adults being adults, we will find children will do what they want and not what is always best. We need a different conversation and real leadership; not what passes for leadership.

Great example of what Prezi can do.

Prezi isn't new but it is still pretty innovative. I recommend using just to stick out from the PowerPoint crowd. You will really stick out if you use it as creatively as they did in this video.

What do Students [Really] Want in an Online Course?

After analyzing student feedback from over twenty courses in our college’s online program, a dominant theme emerged—students appear to want to interact with their peers online, to engage in stimulating discussions, and look for constructive feedback from their instructor.

Mirko Ganarin's insight:

We are social beings and therefore I believe that interaction with humans can only be REAL in the real, offline world. The online part is of courses a great asset nowadays, but can it replace human beings discussing a topic in a class room?
