Have a read through. The marriage between Moodle and mLearning is inevitable. See some simple apps  developed at the University of the South Pacific..http://www.usp.ac.fj/index.php?id=mlearning . 

Moodle_UK's curator insight, October 21, 2013 4:52 AM

Although the Jim Judges "jury" is out as far as mobile learning is concerned - this looks like it may be worth investigating further. I haven't read it yet so can't comment or recommend.

The publisher describes this as "A guide with practical examples that gives you hands-on knowledge in creating learning environments for Mobile devices using Moodle"

The Failure of an Online Program | Online Learning | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | Educational Technologies for Change | Scoop.it

It's evening. An Irish pub in Louisville, Colorado. Fish and chips. Beer. A game of soccer on the TV. I'm sitting down with one of my faculty to revisit the department's Developmental English course (ENG 090). My goal: bring the course fully online, eliminate the text book, and make it a deeper learning and community building experience for all who enroll. The trick is, almost no one enrolls in ENG 090 because they want to. They enroll because they failed a test. How do you take a student from "You failed. Take this class." to "Writing is fun!" And how do you do that online?

Paulo Moekotte's curator insight, April 15, 2013 9:14 AM

The web literacy standards can be considered a part of general information literacy and digital literacy, focussing espescially on web based information. 

As Belshaw puts it himself:

"A framework for Web Literacy is always going to be what I’d term a ‘convenient hypocrisy’. There’s so many different things we could include – and so many ways of learning it – that a truly comprehensive framework would be impossible to represent. We’re limited to two, or at best three, dimensions when representing a learning standard for Web Literacy!"

 

This argument is in line with his approach of digital literacy in his thesis "What is ‘digital literacy’?": 

"Whilst a definition of digital literacies should be produced by the above process it should (as befits the Pragmatic methodology of this thesis) be provisional and revisable. In other words, those looking to develop digital literacies should understand that the ground is currently shifting under their feet."

Ready to go retro?  This video re-introduces the 1970s concept of mind mapping!  Great tool for your special needs students!

For some people, mind mapping and concept mapping may represent the same technique, however, they are some differences. This article compares both and list their similarities and differences.

The 22 Milestones Of Education Technology | Edudemic

The 22 Milestones Of Education Technology | Edudemic | Educational Technologies for Change | Scoop.it

From the start of the first school in 1635 A.D. to the iPad, the history of education technology is relatively brief. Just look how far we’ve come over the past few hundred years. From a tablet-sized chalkboard in every school house to a, um, tablet in every classroom.

 

Wait, maybe we haven’t come that far.

 

In any case, this infographic is not overly detailed but it is interesting. It details the couple dozen milestones of education technology over the past few hundred years. Definitely worth checking out!
