"On the iPad, the ‘Print’ option doesn’t have a PDF export option. This is where the Universal app Web to PDF comes in handy. Upon launching, you are presented with a Web browser to go to the page you need a PDF of. Browse to a Web page and choose the button at the bottom right of the screen, “Create PDF”. The resulting PDF is a great way to read a Web page later when offline too!"

Balancing the Advantages and Disadvantages of Student Social Media Use

Balancing the Advantages and Disadvantages of Student Social Media Use | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

Another great post by Dr Justin Marquis: "There is no right or wrong answer about social media in our  educational systems. It is an evolving method of communication and one that is only more likely to gain acceptance and prevalence. Rather than rail against  it, it makes more sense to embrace it, minimize the negatives and teach  students new ways of engaging with social media, their instructors, and each  other that will support them in becoming connected learners with the skills to  become successful connected workers."

The Social News Discovery Visual Browser for iPads: Rockmelt

 

Robin Good: If you have an iPad and you are looking for a better way to find, discover, browse, search and consume news stories, the new Rockmelt browser for iPads is definitely worth a road test.

 

Unlike other popular browsers, "rather than showing you a big, empty window--or just whatever site you were looking at the last time you used it--Rockmelt offers up a visual stream of personalized content, culled from friends on Facebook and Twitter, RSS subscriptions, and sites that fall into your designated categories of interest.

 

Posts, articles, images, and the rest take the form of big, tappable tiles in two endless columns--an infinitely scrolling stream of content.

 

Touch one of the items, and, when possible, it pops open in a stripped-down reader view.

 

As you’re checking out that content, you can jump to a full view of the website it’s hosted on, follow links, or just dip back to your stream to find something else to look at."

 

"Overall, it’s a fairly radical take on what a tablet browser should be, one that starts with the go-anywhere, find-anything utility of the browsers we’re familiar with and grafts a visual, content-curation element on top of it all.

 

In this sense, the new Rockmelt is sort of like a mash-up of Pulse, Flipboard, and Safari--a browser that’s also a news reader, with a dash of social network to round it out."

SXSWedu PanelPicker

Online learning, online education - we read about it daily now that MOOCs are the rage. But are MOOCs and online education synonymous? Do instructors who are recorded and present their course online in a MOOC do the same thing as instructors who teach for-credit online courses within Universities? How do instructors of any type learn to teach online? With all of the talk about new ways of new delivery methods and both the threats and benefits, nobody talks about the elephant in the room. The majority of instructors don't know how to teach online. They have been the "sage on the stage" for many years - switching to an online, interactive format where instructor presence is one of the primary ways to assure participation and learner success means swimming in unchartered waters. Some have been very successful and are champions, while others shy away. How have the successful ones learned? We will incorporate real opinions by enthusiastic instructor participants.

 

Interesting enough for a vote?

Microsoft turns jobs centres into tech hubs to improve youngsters IT skills | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it
Microsoft has launched a new skills programme in the UK to improve young people's IT skills and digital literacy.


The Get On programme includes a number of different initiatives to help young people "get inspired, get skilled and get a job", said Hugh Milward, Microsoft head of corporate affairs, in an interview with V3.


The programme is set to help 300,000 16 to 24 year olds take steps toward work and the start of a career over the next three years, through a combination of education and training, apprenticeships and work experience.

The Ultimate Blended Learning Tool: Sky™ wifi smartpen Introduction

Here's a technology that any student can use to 'blend' the traditional lecture with online productivity tools.

 

Take notes and they are wirelessly uploaded to Evernote, along with a sync track of the lecture you're listening to.  Very slick.  

 

~ I recommend this! Dennis O'Connor

7 Things You Should Know About Social Content Curation | EDUCAUSE.edu

7 Things You Should Know About Social Content Curation | EDUCAUSE.edu | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

An emerging class of online tools, including Pinterest, Scoop.it, EduClipper, and others, allows users to quickly and easily gather, organize, and share collections of online resources, particularly visual content. These applications make it easy to collect and post disparate bits of content, providing visual groupings at a glance that can reveal important patterns. In academic settings, they can facilitate more visual thinking and discussion among students while providing a means to share collections of online content.

The 7 Things You Should Know About... series from the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) provides concise information on emerging learning technologies. Each brief focuses on a single technology and describes what it is, where it is going, and why it matters to teaching and learning. Use these briefs for a no-jargon, quick overview of a topic and share them with time-pressed colleagues.

Audrey's curator insight, April 2, 2014 4:55 AM

This is what was found:  "The students in the Independent Project are remarkable but not because they are exceptionally motivated or unusually talented. They are remarkable because they demonstrate the kinds of learning and personal growth that are possible when teenagers feel ownership of their high school experience, when they learn things that matter to them and when they learn together. In such a setting, school capitalizes on rather than thwarts the intensity and engagement that teenagers usually reserve for sports, protest or friendship..."


Much of this can be started from the home environment. Curated for www.homeschoolsource.co.uk

The next evolution of schools: Highlights from our chat with Will Richardson | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

What will schools look like in 25 years? Educator and parent Will Richardson sees profound changes beginning to bubble up in classrooms around the world. In the past, knowledge was bounded — both in books and in classrooms. But today, the internet provides nearly endless learning opportunities for anyone who is interested. Which means that education should no longer focus on dates and facts, all just a Google search away, but instead on critical thinking.
