What I already know.  If you want them to use a book in their research then you will have to include it in the requirements of the project that at least one sources is a book.

SPECIAL CONFERENCE EDITIO Sloan-C Symposium on Emerging Technologies in Online Learning

SPECIAL CONFERENCE EDITIO Sloan-C Symposium on Emerging Technologies in Online Learning | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

HIGHLIGHTS FROM:

6th Annual International Symposium for Emerging Technologies for Online Learning

A conference devoted to the emerging and innovative uses of technology designed to improve teaching and learning online 

 Las Vegas, Nevada April 9-11, 2013

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I enjoyed attending this symposium. The size was just right, about 800 with a wide variety of presentations and ideas.  This site provides you with a strong archive of those presentations. 


I always ask myself what is one strong 'take away' from all this exposure to emerging tech.  Honestly, very little of what I learned was new, but I was struck by the prediction that Gesture Based computing would be a major part of the near future.  


One more interesting technology to track!

What happens when all textbooks are (only) digital? Ask the Koreans! | A World Bank Blog on ICT use in Education

What happens when all textbooks are (only) digital? Ask the Koreans! | A World Bank Blog on ICT use in Education | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

...in no other education system (that I know of) has there been serious talk about getting rid of paper textbooks entirely. Until now.


Details are still a little sketchy about what this will all look like in practice. The Korean Education & Research Information Service (KERIS) -- essentially the country's national ICT/education agency -- has been piloting a 'digital textbook' project for the past four years. Al Gore's "Our Choice", a digital book distributed as an iPad app that was previewed in a much-talked-about TED talk earlier this year, points to some of the potential in the near future for what 'digital textbooks' may be capable of. While this is still many generations removed from the type of truly 'interactive' book imagined by science fiction writers (like Neal Stepheson famously did in The Diamond Age), the future may be closer than we think -- at least for students in Korea.


What a Korean classroom will look like after the new policy is now a matter of increasing speculation and interest in many quarters. Will digital textbooks simply 'replace' existing textbooks, providing 'jazzier' educational content, but be utilized by students and teachers in much the same way as paper-bound textbooks were in the past? Or will this be part of a more fundamental transformation in the way teaching and learning occurs? These are big questions for which there are no clear answers yet. Widescale introductions of ICTs in education systems are often meant to be spurs to transformation of existing practices -- although in the end, they often end up being used as part of, and thus largely reinforcing, 'traditional' activities and approaches.
