How to dictate a book in Book Creator - Book Creator app | Blog | EduInfo | Scoop.it
When working with young students, typing can be quite a difficult thing for them to do.

In Book Creator, you can easily make a voice recording of the child telling the story but often having the written text there can make that story even more powerful.

Just recently, I was training some assistant teachers on how to use Book Creator. I run a lot of workshops, and Book Creator is one of my most used apps on my iPad.

I love it when I learn something new. So I just had to share this with you.

The  evolution of data storage has been very interesting to watch, I can remember buying audio tapes, then compact disks, them digital music downloads, now we are entering into a new technology like Trent Reznor's Beats, which allows full access to any and all music for a relatively small fee.


Other types of Data storage have evolved even more dynamically, evidenced by the following infographic.

A Flipped Classroom? Or Should It Be Sideways? | Edudemic | EduInfo | Scoop.it

Since it is a less radical departure from what students and parents expect, there’s less stress and uncertainty. If you fear that students may not have access to video lectures or get distracted from learning while on their own time, then teacher resources and equipment available in most schools solve this logistics problem. Wealth and home situation do not become a barrier to learning.

Can MOOCs help democratize access to education?

Can MOOCs help democratize access to education? | EduInfo | Scoop.it

Despite many prophecies that massive open online courses (MOOCs) would be a democratizing force in education, providing global access to top-quality education at low cost to providers, and at no cost to the learner, the reality is somewhat less glorious. It is true that many MOOCs are taught by world-class professors, that they have attracted learners from all over the world, and that they have been offered free to participants. However, MOOCs are costly and time-consuming to produce, most participants are already well-educated, and only around 5% of registrants actually complete their courses.

Down to earth article about the effectiveness of MOOCs

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, October 1, 8:35 AM

"MOOCs may be an effective learning mechanism for highly motivated, self-directed learners who have strong reading skills and high bandwidth internet access.  Short or “modularized” MOOCs may provide a cost-effective way for corporations to offer ongoing, just-in-time training for employees.  However, for the less motivated but perhaps more typical learner, negligible instructor-student interaction in MOOCs and limited opportunities for constructive peer-to-peer engagement present a challenge.  Improving access to learning opportunities for most individuals requires more than simply making the materials available. It is also necessary to help them select learning experiences that fit with their incoming level of preparation, interests, and goals for education, and to offer sustained guidance and support throughout the learning experience."Fiona Hollands, Ph.D., Teachers College, Columbia University.

Más allá de los MOOC´s, esta versión evolucionada del aprendizaje online se refiere no solo al aprendizaje individual sino también al desempeño que el estudiante demuestra en la vida online.  Su mayor virtud se apoya en el hecho de que concibe el aprendizaje horizontalmente, con las herramientas y contenidos específicos que cada uno quiera desarrollar. Hasta el 30 de septiembre podremos disfrutar de ella, esperando que pronto llegue también su versión móvil.  Otro salto en la manera como entendemos el aprendizaje, mientras que en España seguimos pensando que con leyes y más leyes mejorará el desempeño de nuestro sistema educativo a favor de una sociedad "mejor".

Wort looking at the four pillars of F-L-I-P

 

Flexible Environment:

 F.1: I establish spaces and time frames that permit students to interact and reflect on their learning as needed.  F.2: I continually observe and monitor students to make adjustments as appropriate. F.3: I provide students with different ways to learn content and demonstrate mastery.

Learning Culture:

 L.1: I give students opportunities to engage in meaningful activities without the teacher being central.  L.2: I scaffold these activities and make them accessible to all students through differentiation and feedback.

Intentional Content:

 I.1: I prioritize concepts used in direct instruction for learners to access on their own.  I.2: I create and/or curate relevant content (typically videos) for my students.  I.3: I differentiate to make content accessible and relevant to all students.

Professional Educator:

 P.1: I make myself available to all students for individual, small-group and class feedback, in real time, as needed.  P.2: I conduct ongoing formative assessments during class time through observation and by recording data to inform future instruction. P.3: I collaborate and reflect with other educators and take responsibility for transforming my practice.
