Anne Whaits's curator insight, March 7, 2013 10:12 AM

The real scalibility in education comes with the Internet....freeing education from a place and from a specific time. With this comes changing pedagogies including peer-learning. Donald makes a case for recording lectures - videos provide opportunity for repeated access to new content. Some familiar messages here and interesting focus on scalibility.

Slideidea, uma nova ferramenta online de criação de slides, permite-lhe criar excelentes apresentações a partir de uma coleção de templates moderna e muito completa.

Mas onde Slideidea se distingue verdadeiramente da concorrência é nas suas possibilidades de interação com a audiência: cada apresentação recebe um url único, para partilha, que permite, ao público acompanhar a apresentação slide a slide, fazer comentários, votações, questões, etc.

Slideideia permite ainda importar (e melhorar) apresentações Powerpoint e ficheiros Pdf.

Opinion: Tablets Are a Fad — They’ll Largely Disappear in 2–3 Years

Opinion: Tablets Are a Fad — They’ll Largely Disappear in 2–3 Years | CSPEducational Technology | Scoop.it
The iPad came out of the Apple chute in 2010 like gangbusters, setting all kinds of sales records. Schools picked up on the iPad too. But the tablet is a fad, we argue; it will pass away in short order (two to three years) because it is neither a mobile device nor a work device – and folks (and schools, we should hope) want those two types of devices!

Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, August 6, 2:57 AM

"the implications for K-12 schools ... if our prediction about the tablets’ demise is right ... or wrong?

Possible Responses:

Schools and districts are rolling out iPads from kindergarten to grade 5, one grade per year. If we are right, then there may well be precious few tablets for those 4th and 5th graders!  It doesn’t matter whether we are right or wrong: schools are going BYOD — Bring Your Own Device, and thus it is students — and their parents — that will determine what devices are brought into the classroom.  It doesn’t matter whether we are right or wrong: Schools will come to see that, at least for K-5 or even K-8, smartphones — not tablets - are the appropriate learning tool. (Wheeling in the laptop cart when a long writing project is assigned.) One can always hope!"
