I was surprised how many opitions are available to make collaborative videos.  This inspired me to think of ways I could use videos in my mathematics course.

Education Week: Schools Open Doors to Students' Mobile Devices

Education Week: Schools Open Doors to Students' Mobile Devices | BYOD & Blended Learning: Educational Best Practices for the 21st Century | Scoop.it
Schools are showing growing interest in using student-owned cellphones and netbooks to build 1-to-1 computing programs.
Jodie Bramel's insight:

Here are some excellent current examples of how districts are dealing with BYOD and some useful information on reviewing your schools technological use policy.


But recognizing the dramatically increased presence and potential of student-owned cellphones is only one step toward enacting less restrictive policies. Another, Scidmore says, is realizing that abuse of cellphones during class time—whether for cheating, accessing inappropriate material, or sending improper text messages—is a behavioral problem, not a technology problem.

Great article. I hadn't thought about the possibility of school provided cell phones.
Patricia Powers's curator insight, August 10, 2013 10:16 PM

This is a great thought-opener on BYOD policies. As a teacher who has spent years fighting the misuse of cell phones during lessons, I found the comments on the need to train students in the propper use of technology (as opposed to throwing out the baby with the bath water) very useful.

Is "Dumbing Down" BYOD Devices the Way to Protect Your Company? - Cloud Powered Work

Is "Dumbing Down" BYOD Devices the Way to Protect Your Company? - Cloud Powered Work | BYOD & Blended Learning: Educational Best Practices for the 21st Century | Scoop.it
One of the problems with the immense computing power now contained in mobile devices is they are also a problem from a security perspective.
Jodie Bramel's insight:

Allowing the use of BYOD in schools pose many of the same problems as in business. This is the ying and yang of utilizing technology; one must always weigh the cost-benefit ratio of each decision in education and business.


IT analyst Aaron Goldberg notes one of the solutions that some organizations are using to protect business applications and data on these devices is to run them “virtually” so that no information or code is resident on the mobile device. - See more at: http://cloudpoweredwork.com/it-and-the-social-enterprise/opinions/is-dumbing-down-byod-devices-the-way-to-protect-your-company/?utm_source=krieger37d#sthash.A0LsErE9.dpuf

What is Blended Learning? — Web Learning @ Penn State

What is Blended Learning? — Web Learning @ Penn State | BYOD & Blended Learning: Educational Best Practices for the 21st Century | Scoop.it
Jodie Bramel's insight:
Why Blend?

The goal of a blended approach is to join the best aspects of both face to face and online instruction. Classroom time can be used to engage students in advanced interactive experiences.  Meanwhile, the online portion of the course can provide students with multimedia-rich content at any time of day, anywhere the student has internet access, from Penn State computer labs, the coffee shop, or the students’ homes. This allows for an increase in scheduling flexibility for students. In addition to flexibility and convenience for students, according to research shared at the ALN Conference Workshop on Blended Learning & Higher Education November 17, 2005, there is early evidence that a blended instructional approach can result in learning outcome gains and increased enrollment retention (http://www.uic.edu/depts/oee/blended/workshop/bibliography.pdf). Blended learning is on the rise in higher education. 93% of higher ed instructors and admin say they are using blended learning strategies somewhere in their institution. 7 in 10 expect more than 40% of their schools’ courses to be blended by 2013 (Bonk, C. J. & Graham, C. R. (Eds.). (in press).

Jodie Bramel's insight:

A very good article outlining the use of Teaching Effectiveness framework (TES) to incorporate educational best practices regarding technology.


This report describes a set of projects co-designed by teachers and education specialists aimed at engaging students intellectually in each major high school subject area. Student use of mobile technologies, in this case the iPad2, features prominently in each of these projects. Interviews with teachers and students were conducted in order to identify evidence of intellectual engagement, as well as students’ interactions with the mobile device. Data from a survey was also used to identify the level of engagement of students involved in these projects.
