Kathleen Cercone's curator insight, March 7, 2013 7:58 AM

There are iPads flooding into just about every classroom and school these days. Or so it seems. Judging by the amount of interest from educators, students, and administrators, it’s easy to see that the iPad is a becoming a topic of discussion (at the very least) for many of us. So what are some of the more interesting ways schools use iPads and how are schools currently implementing them?

 
Kirsten Naughton's curator insight, March 8, 2013 11:26 AM

Its natural for education to be moving towards these mobile platforms. I'm glad to see so many educational tools and publishers moving this direction as well.

Finally! Research-based proof that students use cell phones for LEARNING

Finally! Research-based proof that students use cell phones for LEARNING | Educational Technology Today | Scoop.it

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 8, 2013 1:17 AM
A new study conducted by TRU provides a body of research which supports the idea that students use cell phones to learn, and also that schools are not acknowledging or supporting them fully, yet. This research supports the work of  innovative educators who are guiding today’s generation text and will help in the effort of getting more schools to stop fighting and start embracing student use of mobile devices for learning in school. Rather than banning, the study highlights the fact that if we meet children where they are we can leverage their use of mobile devices for powerful learning.

The research supports the fact that mobile technology can inspire and engage students by letting them lead their learning and supporting them in choosing and using the devices they know, love, and prefer. The study reveals that whether allowed to use their devices in school or not, students are moving forward and using them for learning even if their school is lagging behind in embracing student-owned devices.

Challenging the Model of 1:1 with BYOD

Challenging the Model of 1:1 with BYOD | Educational Technology Today | Scoop.it

Our aim for using mixed devices was to challenge teachers and students to really integrate technology into their instruction and learning. By having multiple devices available, users are challenged to determine which device best suits their learning purpose, and teachers are also challenged to rethink how they are using technology.

Here is a short list of just that. Some of them are madly expensive but all the more necessary if you want to have a successful and productive time in college or university. Sometimes these so-called gadgets are worth the investment, and sometimes they are just part of being in college or university–so here are eight of them in no particular order.

Mural.ly May Be The Mind Mapping Tool You’ve Been Waiting For

Mural.ly May Be The Mind Mapping Tool You’ve Been Waiting For | Educational Technology Today | Scoop.it

Mural.ly is a new tool (still in beta, launched last week) that is a cross between Prezi and mind maps. It’s easy to use and share what you create (perfect for most students, teachers, and parents) but the real beauty of mural.ly is in its lack of structure.

Nice and catchy way to get your students to defend and describe ideas... it can be turned into a highly powerful communicative environment... make students describe their Mural.ly in front of the class!
