10 Big (But Never Discussed) Problems With Mobile Learning

10 Big (But Never Discussed) Problems With Mobile Learning | Education ♥ Technology | Scoop.it

The mobile learning revolution is creating a lot of buzz in the education world, and the benefits undoubtedly stand out. But nothing exists as a purely positive entity. While the movement toward “m-learning” (as those totally in the know call it) marks a change in how education approaches technological developments, anyone considering the developing tools needs to research the downsides before making the leap.

Learn Science While Playing Video Games? Video Game Maker Valve Makes Dreams Comes True | Singularity Hub

Learn Science While Playing Video Games? Video Game Maker Valve Makes Dreams Comes True | Singularity Hub | Education ♥ Technology | Scoop.it

For decades, video games and education have gone together like oil and water. No matter what attempts were made to merge the two, it seems students and teachers had to pick between one or the other, with The Oregon Trail being the only tolerated exception to the rule. But a growing number of educators have become open and eager to use video games in the classroom, especially when it comes to teaching STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).

 

Valve recently launched a free initiative called Teach With Portals that aims to help teachers use the game Portal 2 to engage students in learning STEM and critical thinking.

Konstantinos Kalemis's comment, August 9, 2012 6:53 AM
To work, the 21st century skills movement will require keen attention to curriculum, teacher quality, and assessment.
A growing number of business leaders, politicians, and educators are united around the idea that students need "21st century skills" to be successful today. It's exciting to believe that we live in times that are so revolutionary that they demand new and different abilities. But in fact, the skills student’s needs in the 21st century are not new.
Critical thinking and problem solving, for example, have been components of human progress throughout history, from the development of early tools, to agricultural advancements, to the invention of vaccines, to land and sea exploration. Such skills as information literacy and global awareness are not new, at least not among the elites in different societies. The need for mastery of different kinds of knowledge, ranging from facts to complex analysis? Not new either. Today we cannot afford a system in which receiving a high-quality education is akin to a game of bingo. If we are to have a more equitable and effective public education system, skills that have been the province of the few must become universal.
This distinction between "skills that are novel" and "skills that must be taught more intentionally and effectively" ought to lead policymakers to different education reforms than those they are now considering. If these skills were indeed new, then perhaps we would need a radical overhaul of how we think about content and curriculum. But if the issue is, instead, that schools must be more deliberate about teaching critical thinking, collaboration, and problem solving to all students, then the remedies are more obvious, although still intensely challenging.

Plethora of educational gaming sites that are geared towards elementary students. I've used http://funbrain.com and http://abcya.com before with my Kindergartners. A center-orientated system could be effective in getting kids to rotate from computer to computer, entrenching them in different subjects such as reading, writing, spelling, and math.

This is good for explaining why it takes so much effort. But it still a subject matter expert, a passionate proponent, and the flexibility to incorporate methods and strategies for motivating.
Konstantinos Kalemis's comment, August 9, 2012 4:48 AM
Educators are often resistant to using computer technology in the classroom. Therefore, changing teachers’ attitudes is a key factor in fostering technology integration identified teachers’ attitudes as well as expertise in using computers as major factors in the adoption of computers in the classroom.
Although teachers’ attitudes were not historically considered in the introduction of computers into the classroom, many scholars now contend that future successful implementations will need to address teachers’ attitudes toward computers. According to Hignite and Echternacht (1992), it is critical that teachers possess both positive attitudes and adequate computer literacy skills to successfully incorporate technology into the classroom.
Several studies have suggested that attitudes are an important element in teaching children about computers. For example, Todman and Dick (1993) emphasized that an important factor affecting the quality of a child’s experience with computers in school may be the teacher’s attitude toward computers.
Based on an international study involving children, teachers, and computers, Pelgrum and Plomp concluded that:
Teachers are the main gatekeepers in allowing educational innovations to diffuse into the classrooms. Therefore one of the key factors for effecting an integration of computers in the school curriculum is adequate training of teachers in handling and managing these new tools in their daily practices.
Other studies have shown that student’ attitudes about school and learning are likely to affect student achievement and that appropriate teacher training in classroom computer use can be associated with higher student achievement.
It is generally accepted in the literature that appropriate training of teachers should include the ability to use the computer for personal use (i.e., word processing, grade book, etc.) and with students in the classroom.
The instructor who has learned to integrate technology into existing curricula may teach differently than the instructor who has received no such training.
The difference in classroom technique and the greater extent of technology use should have a positive effect on teacher and student attitudes toward information technology.

Social media for schools: a guide to Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest

Social media for schools: a guide to Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest | Education ♥ Technology | Scoop.it
Using social media in schools doesn't have to be scary, says Matt Britland.

 

The use of social media in education continues to be something of a hot topic with arguments both for and against.

 

So I carried out a small survey of 27 teaching professionals in order to create a baseline of understanding into the use (or not) of social networking in schools, and also any concerns over some of the e-safety risks. The full survey results can be found here (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1yytBof2eXglBh5YSrj3HatZe2KVNxATFEqU5Jqj0BHk/edit?pli=1).

 

There are many uses of social media in education - below are just a few of the ways they can be effectively used.

Scholastic Gamification: Using Video Games to Teach

Scholastic Gamification: Using Video Games to Teach | Education ♥ Technology | Scoop.it

I am, and most likely always will be, a huge fan of gamification. The concept of building dynamic game mechanics into every day activities is a wonderful idea. Wonderful and cool, but hardly a radical one or even new. I remember my mom telling me when I was a kid to “make a game” out of cleaning my room, for example. I did, and by making the task of cleaning my room into a challenge, I was more focused on getting it done and more positive about the work I needed to complete. Of course, with computers in the classrooms, tablet computers in the home, and smartphones that make Albert Einstein look like a dunce, gamification has become much more interesting.
