"What is it? Grammar Pop, from the award-winning Grammar Girl http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/grammar-girl , lets users match words in sentences with 1 of 11 speech parts. The game starts off with the basics (nouns, verbs, and articles) and advances through 14,000 words and 28 levels of difficulty. Higher levels include more advanced concepts, such as gerunds, participles, and infinitives. Users can start at Level 1 or move between levels at will, collecting coin prizes and earning achievements along the way."

Now that all my students have iPads, I want to use this in my classroom! If admin won't approve the purchase of the app for all students, I'll use Nearpod to use it corporately from my iPad. Grammar Girl (Mignon Fogarty) is known for her easy-to-understand mneumonic devices and techniques for remembering those pesky grammar rules, which helps kids understand better. I've used her podcasts in class; now I'm excited to try her grammar game.

Generation Tech: The Good, Bad, and Scary

Generation Tech: The Good, Bad, and Scary | E-learning | Scoop.it
What parents should understand about technology...

 

Raising children in a technology-infused world is more than understanding the ins and outs of Facebook, Twitter, and computer games – or about the digital habits of teens. It’s about understanding the relationship of technology, popular culture, and child development. Taylor brings these deeper insights to readers in an easy-to-read, well-written format that is sure to benefit children.

 

The key for every parent is to facilitate a healthy, balanced relationship with technology – being aware of its pitfalls and helping children integrate media into their lives in positive ways. This is the message of Taylor’s book – and is well worth the read!

Teens & Technology: Is mobile the right tool or the only tool available? | Blandin on Broadband | E-learning | Scoop.it

Pew Internet and American Life released a new report this week on teens’ use of technology and the Internet. I’m always interested in these reports – both because of my obvious interest in broadband but also because after a big birthday in February I am now the proud keeper of two teens. And as of this week they each have an iPhone.

 

Here are some of the broadband highlights from the report…

 

95% of teens are online, a percentage that has been consistent since 2006.One in four teens (23%) have a tablet computer, a level comparable to the general adult population.Nine in ten (93%) teens have a computer or have access to one at home. Seven in ten (71%) teens with home computer access say the laptop or desktop they use most often is one they share with other family members.

 

I’m impressed by 95 percent of teens being online – although that is a huge wake up call to the five percent who aren’t. It would be interesting to know why those teens aren’t online. Yesterday Connect Minnesota released a report on Minnesota adoption. They found reasons that most Minnesotans who aren’t online have stayed offline. The top answers are:

E learning is different from the provision of online content. It reads as obvious, but when examples are seen, too many simply provide  content and call it 'learning' whether it be on line or paper based.
