Getting ready for iPad deployment: ten things I’d wish I’d known about last year

"When making the move towards using mobile devices in the classroom, there are a number of practical considerations to bear in mind. This article will draw on the experience we have had this year, in implementing an iPad 1 to 1 scheme with our 6th form. We’ve made many mistakes, and I hope have learnt from them. In the spirit of collaboration, I will share some of them below, in the hope that other schools learn from both what has worked, and what hasn’t..."

Online Education for Working Adults: How to Balance Study and Work - Distance Education.org | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Working adults face very specific challenges that most traditional students don’t have to worry about. One of these is balancing study time and the demands of work. If you’re a student with a full-time job and a full-time study schedule, it might not be easy to figure out when—and how—to study to get the most from your classes.

Codecademy | Learn to write code online, for free

Codecademy | Learn to write code online, for free | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Codecademy is the easiest way to learn how to code. It's interactive, fun, and you can do it with your friends.

 

From the NY Times, 9/14/11

 

"That’s how he and Mr. Bubinski got the idea of creating a way to help newbies to computer science learn coding skills painlessly and quickly — with easy lessons on the Web and built-in rewards to keep them motivated. The idea led to Codecademy, an online tool designed to give computer science newbies a crash course in the basics.

 

"Codecademy was introduced less than a month ago, and since then, more than 550,000 people have used the site, completing more than six million exercises. Mr. Sims said most users do more than just peruse the site; they spend time working their way through the exercises."

QRPedia is a neat website that was featured on Read Write Web this morning. RWW called it "the coolest QR thingy ever made." I don't think it's the coolest ever, but it is pretty neat. QRPedia is a tool for creating QR codes for any Wikipedia page in any language.


When scanned the codes generated by QRPedia will automatically recognize the language of your phone and delivers the corresponding Wikipedia page in that language.


Watch the video below to see how QRPedia is being used in museums.

How would you go about converting a face to face course to an eLearning format?

How would you go about converting a face to face course to an eLearning format? | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Several professionals in the Learning industry want to convert their f2f courses into an eLearning format. However, several of them do the same mistake again and again. They believe that by simply moving their content such as PowerPoint presentations, videos, audios, and documents to a Learning Management System that they have converted their face to face courses to an eLearning format. In my opinion, they have convert their traditional courses to an electronic format.

Where is reflection in the learning process?

Where is reflection in the learning process? | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

I asked the students to get in small groups to discuss these questions. They got in their groups and just looked at one another with baffled looks on their faces while remaining silent. I tried rewording the questions and providing examples and still got blank looks when they returned to their group discussions.

The Resource for Education Technology Leaders focusing on K-12 educators.


The use of mobile technology has opened up a whole new world in education. Terms like BYOD (bring your own device) are a commonplace occurrence. These devices have allowed educators and students to learn, teach, and study in a whole new way. Learning is no longer limited to the classroom and can occur in real-time almost anywhere. Following are my favorite sites, listed alphabetically, that help learners use mobile phones for educational purposes.

Spotlight covers the intersections of technology and education, going behind the research to show how digital media is used in and out of classrooms to expand learning.

 

“When I talk to colleagues in Finland, they say, how do you filter?” said Jim Klein, director of Information Services and Technology at the Saugus Union School District in Southern California.

 

“They say, our kids’ filters are in their heads.

 

You do this by giving them a safe environment to educate themselves instead of sticking your head in the sand and pretending these technologies don’t exist.”

Yes, I agree, time to tune in instead of tuning out, what we don't understand.
Dodie Ellen Ballard's curator insight, March 13, 2013 2:44 AM

While this seems to be a struggle for some educational institutions, the policies not only have to be re-written, but the re-write must embrace and not negate the use of technology.

Using Evernote and Skitch Together for Learning and Practicing Sign Language

Using Evernote and Skitch Together for Learning and Practicing Sign Language | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Laura Lippincott has been learning sign language for the past 30 years. She works for a non-profit organization, interpreting for clients in a variety of settings ranging from doctors’ offices to work environments.

 

Before I realized I could use Evernote and Skitch together for learning new signs, I actually drew them out. I can draw, but drawing people’s hands and faces in 2-D is pretty time-consuming. When I realized I could use Evernote to take a picture of hands and then use Skitch to show which way they were moving, the pieces all fell into place for me. Here are some of the ways Evernote and Skitch work beautifully together in the context of my work:

Welcome to your Wondermind
Wondermind is about a few things. It’s about the brilliant, amazing and truly mind-boggling stuff that’s going on inside your brain as you grow. It’s about the art of Alice in Wonderland, the exhibition at Tate Liverpool. And it’s about putting together both of those things: mixing art with science. Being good at one doesn’t mean you can’t be good at the other (in fact, it’s often the opposite).
