EdTechResearcher » Are iPads making a significant difference? Findings from Auburn Maine. | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

"Audrey Watters has an interesting article on early results from an assessment of iPads deployed in kindergardens in Auburn, ME. It’s a perfect place for me to get to one of the core purposes of this blog– to look at educational research results and critique them from the perspective of a fellow researcher. The goal is to help readers be more saavy consumers of educational research. My take is pretty different from Audrey’s (who I think is a brilliant ed tech journalist). I also want to start the post by applauding the team of researchers for tackling this important study, even though I disagree with their interpretation of the data."

Many thanks for sharing this, Robin! I couldn´t agree more with the prediction that 21st century education will definitely need "super e-coaches" with 3 characteristics (1) domain expertise, (2) a deep understanding of the Internet for learning and teaching purposes and (3) counselling skills. If we, as teachers, are able to perform this task, this, in turn, can also serve as a model for our students so they can develop themselves the necessary skills to integrate and make sense of the vast information available. Skills that they will certainly need for their future.

HelloSlide - Bring your slides to life

HelloSlide - Bring your slides to life | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

A tool that you can use to add voice narration to slides that you display online. instead of recording your voice you type what you want the narrator to say. Where you might type "speakers notes" in other slide programs, in Hello Slide you type out the narration. Hello Slide creates the audio and narrates your slides for you. While the voice is slightly robotic, it is much much better than most text to speech services.

Digital Culture Before Digital Textbooks

Digital Culture Before Digital Textbooks | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

Sadly, we still see countless negative examples: Schools that failed to examine the culture before initiating change, schools that changed one dimension of the school without considering the implications on other dimensions, and schools whose leaders went about change alone.

What Should Students Be Studying Now To Prepare For 10 Years From Now?

What Should Students Be Studying Now To Prepare For 10 Years From Now? | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

The Xconomy team posed this question to their network [read: an older audience], reaching out to the people they knew “it would resonate well with.” And while we’ll include some of the answers they received, we decided to reach out to our own network and ask the question ourselves, curious as to whether a younger audience — whether they be fresh out of college, going for their MBA, or newly into their thirties, still trying to figure things out — would have something different to say.
