The American Association of School Librarian (AASL) has recently published its 2014 report of the best websites for teaching and learning. As you probably know, every year AASL releases a list of the best educational websites and applications that foster teaching and learning.
En los últimos tiempos, la realidad virtual es un tema que está cobrando cada vez más relevancia, y es que las famosas Oculus Rift recientemente adquiridas por Facebook han supuesto un aumento del interés por este tipo de dispositivos.
En términos generales, la creación de contenidos virtuales implica un buen uso de disciplinas y procedimientos pedagógicos, como son la didáctica y la metodología; saber organizar y gestionar jerárquicamente los contenidos y recursos interactivos; ser creativo; respetar las pautas de estilo; distribuir el temario de forma que su estudio sea abarcable por el alumno, etc.
"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.
The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."
Living and learning in a technology-rich world changes everything. Well it should... but too often, the results haven’t always been as expected. The living part is of course, the way we all now complete our daily routines; there is nothing we do that is not touched by the ubiquity of technology in every facet of our lives. It’s the learning part that is problematic.We’ve lived in a technology-sparse environment in education for so long that we have forgotten what expectations we might have had at one time for how learning would be transformed as technology immersed our schools, and beyond. On one level we should not be surprised, because it has taken us so long to leave behind old assumptions abouttechnology access belonging to a lab or being shared, rather than being a truly personal experience. We will surely look back in years to come and wonder how we ever believed the learning environments for young people at the end of the first decade of the 21st Century should not have been truly technology-rich. But such has been the (mis)fortune of students and educators alike, who now have the good fortune and opportunity to break new ground, discover new possibilities, as they re-conceptualise the nature of teaching and learning in a technology-rich learning world.
