How Digital Learning is Boosting Achievement - Getting Smart by Tom Vander Ark - blended learning, Online Learning

How Digital Learning is Boosting Achievement - Getting Smart by Tom Vander Ark - blended learning, Online Learning | education | Scoop.it
A reader commented that he wanted to get on board with digital learning but had been told there wasn’t much evidence of links to achievement. That’s dead wrong. There are hundreds of solid pieces of evidence about digital learning.

It’s true that investments to put 10 million computers in American schools did little to move the achievement needle in aggregate but that’s because it was layered on top of (or as Innosight would say, crammed into) the existing batch-print model of schooling. The same can be said for doubling staffing ratios over the last thrity years.

"Educreations is a recordable interactive whiteboard that captures your voice, handwriting, typed text, and images. The final product is a cool video lesson that teachers can share with students. This is both a web-based app and iPad app. The cost: Free! 

 

With Educreations, students can replay a teacher’s lesson online on or their iPads as often as the need to master the content. It also takes the camera off the instructor and turns the focus toward the content, and the content is key, right?  It’s like a video of your chalkboard or smartboard."

After all, there are many individual CCSS standards to address and there are also a ton of apps to try.
