"Si leí bien, hay un objeto de perfección que es el libro, el libro de papel tal como lo conocemos. ¿Por qué? Es hasta el momento la manera más segura de conservar y transmitir la información. Por tres razones. En primer lugar, creo que es el más práctico para leer, aunque ahora haya jóvenes que dicen: “No, yo leo mejor en el iPad”. Después, está el amor por el objeto. Si voy a mi sótano y veo mi “Pinocho” de cuando tenía 8 años y en el que había escrito cosas, me vuelven emociones que no encuentro en un disco que contiene el texto de Pinocho. Por último, teniendo en cuenta mi edad y si hubiera existido, no podría recuperar el disco de Pinocho porque se habría desmagnetizado. Eso es un problema: las computadoras cambian tanto que no sabemos cuál es la vida útil de un disco…"

Muy pertinente la reflexión y postura de los autores de este artículo (Kop, Fournier y Fai Mak, 2011) sobre el encuadre y concepción que está tomando el actual discurso de la pedagogía que se basa en la producción masiva de cursos en línea, si realmente lo que se promueve a través de ellos, es solo abundancia, agregaría una sobre información masiva, más que calidad en la formación de personas y recursos humanos a nivel profesional. Pensar si los MOOC son una moda pasajera de las universidades, o si es una importante estrategia para resolver el acceso al conocimiento, o simplemente experiencias para monitorear la dinámica del aprendizaje y su relación con la interacción social en medios electrónicos.

In the modern world education is increasingly technological. From sophisticated robotics engineering to tablets in schools, all around the world teachers are upgrading their educational tools in order to give students the skills they will need later on. So how does this change things in the classroom?

Chalkboards and notebooks are increasingly giving way to PCs and tablets - even in developing countries. But how early do children need to start using IT? What if a child wants to become a robotics engineer? We look at how education is adapting to the latest technology in order to prepare students for the world of work.

*Taking the tablets in Kenya*

In some parts of Kenya education is still very basic and drop-out rates are high. But one project has found that investing in tablets and apps can be a way to re-engage students in their lessons, so they have started introducing them to schools. This has affected student attendance and performance.

E-limu is the Swahili word for education - and it is also the name of an app for schoolchildren. It was invented by a group of software developers who want to bring high-tech learning to one of Kenya's poorest communities. This app is supposed to grab students' attention and encourage them to learn.

In Kenya, almost half of school students drop out at the age of 14, with a very basic education. But Nivi Mukherjee, the founder of this pilot project, says that if learning is made more interactive and engaging. It might motivate children to stay longer in school. 

"Now instead of just boring text books we have added animation, games, songs, videos and quizzes to make the entire learning process really fun, interactive and engaging for children," she says.

The pilot project was launched in Kawangware, one of the poorest parts of Nairobi which is notorious for drugs, prostitution and crime. Most of the students here are lucky to be in school at all. Marceline Keyanda, who is 13 years old, is preparing to sit her final primary exams. She says that apps are more exciting and easier to understand than reading textbooks.

"Now instead of teachers coming with a lot of text books they just come with tablets. When you have a question, when the teacher is not around, you just click on the tablet and you get the question which you have asked," she says.

There are many reasons why Kenyan students drop out of school early. The country's education system needs 80,000 more teachers at the moment and students are crammed into tiny classrooms all competing for the attention of one teacher. Many students have short attention spans. E-limu hopes that by using interactive apps the children's ability to concentrate will improve. 

The pilot project is in its early stages. One teacher who has been using it in the classroom thinks the tablet is a success. He has seen students get better results and a significant improvement in attendance records.

"The tablets have given our pupils the courage and confidence to come to school. And that has enhanced performance and attendance, and the total marks of the pupils. In education as a whole they have helped the pupils score better," says Philson Madegwa.

Nivi Mukherjee believes that the app has a wider relevance for society as a whole. It is not only to improve the school curriculum and the desire to learn: she would like to teach children about the environment, social justice, human rights and finance to make them better citizens. 

"We want to teach children to grow up to be participants of the 21st century economy, we want them to be better leaders, to be smarter voters and hopefully in the future we would like to see children all over Africa and maybe other parts of the world using this kind of device," she says.

Mukherjee hopes that this new app will revolutionise learning in Africa and bridge the gap between the continent and other countries' standards.

*Early coding*

So clearly technology has an important place in education. But how early do children have to start in order to learn programming? In Estonia it is very young indeed. The government has recently launched a nationwide code-writing scheme, aiming to encourage a whole new generation to get smart when it comes to using technology."

The curation comment is interesting...

How interactive technology is transforming storytelling

How interactive technology is transforming storytelling | Digitalmente | Scoop.it

Chad Clark's curator insight, July 23, 2013 2:41 PM

A “good tale well told” transcends the medium by which it is relayed.  Credit is due Naomi Alderman for saying as much, or rather writing as much in this brief but value-packed article.  (At one point she confesses to being an instructor of creative writing as well as digital media; her article resonates with familiarity of those two areas of expertise.)  For additional reading re: Immersion, I recommend Frank Rose’s The Art of Immersion.   As to “representing choice” – am I the only avid reader who as a kid tried to get into the Choose Your Own Adventure books but ultimately preferred my bound page to be more of “Calvinoesque”?  (And for the record, I still hate seeing the following words in a periodical: to continue reading, turn to page…) 

 

But with digital media the other shoe has fallen. 

 

In conclusion Alderman speaks to audience participation. I can’t help but think of The Rocky Horror Picture Show whenever I see those two words – audience and participation – together, but alas, I wish I could think Star Wars, Episode One.  You see just last night I watched a 12 minute video simply titled “What If Star Wars: Episode I" Was Good?” This video is one man’s take on how to make EpiOne better, er, um, good even.  Now I’m a huge Star Wars fan, having seen Episode IV: A New Hope when I was only 5.  I’m also a digital media guy myself – so says the University of Washington and after George Lucas destroyed my childhood with Episodes I, II, and III, one other digital media guy takes 12 minutes and tells a story that, well, that if made into a movie wouldn’t have bit the big dead Chihuahua. (Come on, EpiOne was really bad.) 

 

But with the world of Star Wars fans (nerds?) out there, don’t you think George, er, Mr. Lucas, could have made a better film if he’d have listened?  I think so – and so even with all the beautiful digital effects, it all comes down to a good tale well told and in this case, that needed audience participation.   

Jess Gronholm's curator insight, July 26, 2013 3:23 PM

This is a great article about the future of storytelling. I love this point. "Art and science (or technology) are often imagined to be totally separate – but this is not, and never has been, true."

Marco Gabrielli's curator insight, August 13, 2013 8:30 AM

Il poster evidenzia gli argomenti chiave, necessari per sviluppare differenti forme di storytelling. I tre elementi principali sono:


1) la definizione di sette popolari tipi di trame (la vittoria sul mostro, diventare ricchissimi, la traversata del deserto, nuova consapevolezza, commedia, tragedia, rinascita) ;

2) l'identificazione di sette tipi di eroi presenti nelle diverse trame (Dracula, Cenerentola, Ulisse, Alice, Aristofane, Macbeth, A Christmas Carol);

3) l'elenco dei principali tipi di intreccio che possono essere utilizzati in una storia efficace (chiamata, sfida, conflitto, crescita, risoluzione).

 

I principali riferimenti da cui trarre spunto sono i romanzi classici, le opere teatrali e i film. In questa maniera, è possibile ottenere una migliore aderenza tra la realtà che si vuole descrivere o promuovere e la trama della storia.

There are nine domains in this model (listed below) and the post provides additional information.

Great Tutorial on How to Create your Own eBook on iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Digitalmente | Scoop.it

"Creating an eBook online is no rocket science and anyone with the rudimentary knowledge of how to use internet can get his/her eBook up and viral in a couple of minutes provided the content part of it is already written in a word document. I find the typing and editing part the most  difficult stage in this process;  however, if you just want to set up a short ebook for your students then that would not take you much time.


Just a couple of weeks ago I shared here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning a list of great apps  to use to create eBooks on iPad and I received several emails following that post and some of you asked for tutorials on this topic.
