I still don't quite understand where this one is going..Google tries to create an LMS platfrom. But it is not likely that institutions will choose to use it, seeing as they can use all the other Google products and their own LMS instead quite easily..

G-learning: Google devices at school in the post-tablet era

I rarely blog about hardware, as the Google ecosystem is mostly about software and I strongly favour a BYOD (Bring your own device) approach when it comes to devices in the classroom. Copy a portable version of the Chrome browser on a flash drive and you will feel at home wherever you go (at least that’s what I do in the classrooms I teach in) if you use the Google ecosystem extensively. However, many schools urgently need to overhaul their IT equipment and financial resources are often rather scarce.


A few months ago a student of mine asked me if she should buy a Chromebook as she knew that I was using one myself at school as my primary working device. I advised her against buying one as she - like pretty much most of my students - wasn't using Google Drive and wanted a device to use Microsoft Office applications with, which was rather cumbersome on a chromebook at that time.


Fast forward a few months and  not only can you natively edit Office documents now but many other features have been added to Google devices which make them ideal for use at school. By “Google devices” I mean Chromebooks, Chromeboxes, Chromecast dongles and Nexus tablets with no particular preference for a specific hardware manufacturer. I’ve been “dogfooding” all of these devices to myself for a couple of years now using a Chromebook and a Nexus 7 at school as well as a Chromebox as my primary computer (unless I need to use multimedia applications), a Nexus 7 and a Chromecast at home. My school(s) uses almost exclusively Windows PCs.


Here are some ideas where I can see Google devices meaningfully (and economically) deployed at schools:

Wiki – Portal:E-Didaktik | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

Eine ständige Online-Präsenz, Social Media und Web 2.0 ermöglichen den Studierenden einen schnellen und zugleich unkomplizierten Zugang zu Fakten und Informationen. Dieser Aspekt verändert die Lernkultur. Das Lehren und Lernen unter diesem Fokus neu zu verstehen und zum zweckmäßigen Einsatz digitaler Medien mit einer kreativitätsfördernden Didaktik zu reagieren, ist unerlässlich. Lehr-/Lernszenarien mit digitalen Medien unterstützen ein orts- und zeitungebundenes, an das Lerntempo des Einzelnen angepasstes Lernen. Jedoch reicht Technik allein nicht aus. Eine gute Lehre braucht ein sinnvolles didaktisches Design. Im Vordergrund steht die Frage: wie kann Lernen ermöglicht und mit digitalen Medien unterstützt sowie eine geeignete Lernumgebung geschaffen werden.

Reading this book as a young man changed my life as a teacher.  I took to Papert's ideas and was soon teaching LOGO to 5th graders. Later I started a summer time school for kids in a storefront at Lake Tahoe.  Great memories.


Papert's work is every bit as fresh now as it was in the 1980's.  Check him out!

I am fascinated by Papert's perception of educators as anthropologists, "using dynamic cultural trends as a medium to carry educational interventions." How then will the face of education change within global communities? This intriguing book review, originally scooped by Dennis O'Connor, prompted me to order my own copy. I think the early insights expressed by Papert continue to shine light on teaching and learning in the 21st century.

The single most innovative concept in education is at least 100 years old

The single most innovative concept in education is at least 100 years old | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

There’s a whisper in the air. The long-awaited reform in education, they report, is finally here. The proposed solution? Technology. More specifically, iPads in classrooms. Every student, so the argument goes, should have the opportunity to learn at his or her own pace. Fittingly, the movement is called “adaptive learning.”

...

While this is a radical idea, perhaps the single most innovative concept in the history of education, we have some news: It’s at least 100 years old. Italian physician Maria Montessori pioneered this novel approach to education—an education centered solely on the developmental needs of children. Her greatest insight? That everyone learns differently, and at their own pace. We’re natural learners, she said, born with an insatiable curiosity.
