How Google Glass is being used in classrooms around the world

How Google Glass is being used in classrooms around the world | |

I’ve been lucky to be a member of the Google Glass Explorer Program for the past year. I was excited to learn about how this technology could be advanced in terms of education and everyday activities… however it never dawned on me how much potential it truly had until I began the Explorer Program. Over the past year using Glass in class I have began to see the potential not only in education, but also for the everyday consumer. Right now Google glass is expensive and limited among education and consumers…but it is a technology that is moving towards being more cost efficient for all users. (Cost to Build Google Glass) This is why, as educators, we need to take a more in depth look at how this technology will reform education as a whole.

[Ponencia] Pedagogía e Internet

Cristóbal Suárez es doctor en Educación en Procesos de Formación Virtual por la Universidad de Salamanca y profesor del Departamento de Didáctica y Organización Escolar de la Universidad de Valencia. En el siguiente video, el Dr. Cristóbal Suárez (@cristobalsuarez), autor del blog Educación y Virtualidad, expone durante el evento Buenas Prácticas Docentes con TIC (APEC) realizado en Lima (Perú), en julio de 2015.


Desarrolla su ponencia a partir de tres ideas básicas:
  1. Considerar que Internet no es solo un instrumento, sino parte del desarrollo social y cultural de la humanidad
  2. Toda tecnología es necesaria en el aprendizaje, pero no es suficiente
  3. La pedagogía, como disciplina, se encarga no solo de dar respuestas educativas, sino sobre todo de pensar buenas preguntas, para abrir la reflexión sobre el impacto educativo que tiene esta tecnología.

Plantea la diferencia entre la posibilidad de digitalizar la cultura con Internet y la cultura digital y resalta el valor de las preguntas ¿Dónde aprender? y ¿Con quién aprender? que adquieren sentido en Internet, ya que el entorno forma parte del aprendizaje, cambia el aprendizaje en virtud de la mediación tecnológica.

The Microlearning Millennial Myth

The Microlearning Millennial Myth | |
If you search the phrase "Millennial attention spans," the articles in your results will assert some pretty terrifying numbers. According to some, millennials are capable of focusing on something for only 8 seconds at a time. Or maybe it's 90 seconds? The numbers aren't always consistent, but they can give the impression that millennials struggle with any experience that lasts longer than the time it takes to snap a selfie.

Intuitively, we know this isn't quite true. If it were, millennials wouldn't be able to manage basic tasks like driving or writing blog posts.

In reality, the issue of attention is more complicated. The oft-cited "8-second attention span" claim emerged from a 2013 study of Canadian consumers by Microsoft*. I highly suggest reading the full 52-page PDF report—I managed it even with my distractible millennial brain—but here are two key excerpts that relate to our topic of microlearning:

Here is a wonderful Google Classroom tool for Teachers

Here is a wonderful Google Classroom tool for Teachers | |
Share to Classroom is an excellent new extension that teachers can use to share web pages with their classes in Google Classroom. This new add-on is part of a major update Google released yesterday in respect to Drive and Classroom. Using Share to Classroom, you will no longer worry whether students have copied the link correctly as the app reliably pushes the link to every student at the same time. This will definitely save you some precious teaching time and make 1:1 instruction more effective.

The Teacher’s Guide to using YouTube in the classroom

The Teacher’s Guide to using YouTube in the classroom | |
Many lessons can be enhanced with the right video. Something visual and entertaining that speaks to the subject you’re teaching breaks up the monotony of a lecture, brings some fun into the lesson, and keeps your students more engaged and interested in the subject.

Showing videos in the classroom doesn’t have to mean much work for you. All it takes is some searching and browsing on the website to see what videos are already out there on the subject you’re teaching, along with a little time spent watching to find videos that are a good fit. Although if you choose, you can write some questions or create activities that relate to the video to help students get more out of them.

Change Curve: The dynamic change process [Part 2] - Framing Change

Change Curve: The dynamic change process [Part 2] - Framing Change | |
I’ve got to the last of the three manifestations of organisational change represented in the Change Curve framework. ‘Dynamic Change‘ is that which agile organisations can achieve. Earlier this week i introduced a four part model that represented this, showing how the dynamic organisation frames change, co-creates (and co-owns) solutions, adapts as it works and narrates it’s learning back into the tribe. Today, i’m exploring the first part of that model in a little more depth: framing change.

Opportunities to Connect

Opportunities to Connect | |
Michael Simmons shows that Jobs had the ability to be a member of many networks, meaning that he was often the outsider, but this gave him a larger perspective than someone in a closed network, where everyone knows each other. Successful people, according to network theory, are those with more open networks. This goes against our tribal instincts and the norms of most of our institutions. Even the marketplace can be fairly homogeneous, with companies sticking to industry standard practices. But innovation often happens on the edges of disciplines. Jobs instinctively knew this with his innate curiosity.

Change Curve: The Dynamic Change Model [Part 1]

Change Curve: The Dynamic Change Model [Part 1] | |
I’ve been exploring the Change Curve, a framework for understanding organisational change and what we can do to ease the process. It characterises three states: ‘Resistant‘ organisations, who reject change and deploy antibodies to kill it, ‘Constrained‘ organisations, who are unable to relinquish enough control for it truly to gain momentum, and ‘Dynamic‘ organisations, whereby change comes naturally, not as the exception, and the change is co-created and co-owned. It’s a state of true agility, making it ideal for an organisation facing the challenges of the Social Age.

Seesaw: Student driven Digital Portfolios

Seesaw: Student driven Digital Portfolios | |

What it is: Seesaw is the first truly student centered/driven digital portfolio tool that I’ve seen. What makes Seesaw such an awesome option as a digital portfolio is the way that it empowers kids to build and keep a digital portfolio totally independently with features like QR code login for young students. Students can log their learning using photos, videos, drawings, text, PDFs, and links. Seesaw also has direct import features from lots of popular apps. From the teacher perspective, Seesaw makes it simple to access student work immediately from their own device. Content is easily searchable by student and makes it simple to review student progress over time and keep track of growth. In addition to browsing by student, teachers can use folders to organize work by subject area or project. There is also an awesome flag feature that makes it easy to highlight work that you want to go back to for conferences or follow-up with the student. The built in audio recording and drawing tools mean that students can reflect on what they’ve learned or explain how they reached an answer. Parents are also able to login to see work and give feedback on it (you as the teacher can control who sees what and what feedback can be given. Teachers can approve peer feedback before it is seen by students or parents.

[Infografía] Relaciones entre Educación, Sociedad y Trabajo

[Infografía] Relaciones entre Educación, Sociedad y Trabajo | |

Hugo Díaz, presidente del Consejo Nacional de Educación de Perú, plantea los riesgos y las oportunidades de la globalización, la importancia del aprendizaje permanente y cómo las redes nos ayudan a ser aprendices a lo largo de la vida, así como la necesidad de revisar los paradigmas vigentes de la educación.

Me ha parecido especialmente interesante en la presentación de Díaz que destaque la importancia del talento para el desarrollo de las comunidades, por delante de los recursos naturales y el capital. También pone sobre la mesa cómo las tecnologías nos permiten llevar a cabo procesos de enseñanza y aprendizaje que se adapten mejor a las necesidades, aptitudes e intereses de cada aprendiz.

Hugo Díaz estará además disponible mañana jueves 3 de septiembre a las 17h (GMT+2) y durante 15 minutos responderá en directo usando el hashtag #ScolarTICchat1.

Esta ponencia se integra dentro de un ambicioso programa que desde Telefónica Educación Digital abre el debate sobre el futuro de la Educación a través de la Comunidad ScolarTIC, con ponencias, debates virtuales, talleres prácticos, charlas y eventos presenciales en España y Latinoamérica, que se desarrollará durante los próximos 9 meses a través de cuatro ejes temáticos [Claves de la Educación del s.XXI, Centros en Transformación, Nuevos Roles y Metodologías], tal y como muestra la siguiente infografía:

Personalize Learning: Leadership, Change and Personalized Learning

Personalize Learning: Leadership, Change and Personalized Learning | |
Transforming teaching and learning does not happen overnight. Moving to Personalized Learning Environments is a huge shift where schools create an active learning culture based on trust and respect. The leader leads the way. David Buck @dbuckedu made a strong point in "A2: Burden of proof lies with the leader. Must provide evidence-based results that show the personalized approach leaders to deep learning."

There are many aspects of leadership to focus on this topic for #plearnchat so we reached out for questions and ideas from our Twitter friends. We decided that we first needed to ask about the qualities and characteristics of leaders.

[Infographic] Blended Learning for better Induction Training

[Infographic] Blended Learning for better Induction Training | |
It is common knowledge that well-designed induction training programs go a long way in enabling new employees to perform efficiently. They provide all the needed information about the company and its policies. Good induction training programs help new personnel “get into the groove” quickly and effectively, by making the staff members feel at home.

But, how can you impart induction training of high efficacy? What does it take to get the best out of your new employees? Well, you need to blend various learning methodologies, such as face to face classroom training and e-learning, to deliver effective training. Let us see how.

Everything you wanted to know about micro-learning (but were afraid to ask)

Everything you wanted to know about micro-learning (but were afraid to ask) | |
Do you like microbes? If not, don’t worry because micro-learning has nothing to do with them, and is perfectly safe for your health.

Micro-learning (from the Greek word “micro” meaning small) is all about getting your eLearning in small doses, as tiny bursts of training material that you can comprehend in a short time (contrast with the hefty tomes you had to read at school to study a subject or the typical content-heavy eLearning class — which would be classified as “macro” learning).

As with most eLearning related terms there is some vagueness into it, or rather a flexibility if you wish. People use it to refer to several different ways of learning. All, however, share a few common characteristics to a greater or lesser extent:

El futuro del Diseño en la Tecnología

El futuro del Diseño en la Tecnología | |
Actualmente vemos como la tecnología va evolucionando a pasos agigantados, en cambio el diseño de interacción es aún joven, ya que dio sus primeros pasos en los años 90.

Hoy la demanda de las compañías tecnológicas por el diseño ha llegado hasta las nubes, pero aún seguimos operando un poco como al estilo del lejano oeste: rápido, impreciso y con muchos jóvenes. Las mejores prácticas en nuestro campo son de vanguardia, en lugar de ser forjadas a través de décadas de experiencia. Los procesos para la creación de un gran trabajo son tan flexibles como la masa para galletas.

Es una época emocionante para ser un diseñador en el mundo de la tecnología. Estamos en medio de un cambio radical, y no puedo esperar a ver como serán las cosas dentro de 10 años. Mirando hacia el futuro y tomando algunas lecciones de otras disciplinas como el diseño industrial, diseño gráfico y de moda, aquí les dejo algunas predicciones del camino que tomará el diseño en la tecnología, en los próximos 10 años:

[Infographic] Connected College Life

[Infographic] Connected College Life | |

Asurion, the connected life services company, recently surveyed more than 1,000 students heading to colleges and universities across the nation to determine how they use their electronic devices while at college. The Asurion Connected College Life survey revealed that from laptops and tablets to cell phones and headphones, tech dominates college life, both on and off campus.

College is often the first time students move away from home and are expected to be responsible for themselves and their personal technology without their parents looking over their shoulders,” said Bettie Colombo, Asurion spokesperson. “Our Connected College Life survey has generated insights into how this new independence is helping to shape the ways students use and think about their technology both in and out of the classroom.

Key insights from the Asurion Connected College Life survey
Paying Attention in Class?: Nearly half (47 percent) of college students have ordered food while in class. Seven out of 10 college students (70 percent) have shopped online during lectures, and more than half (57 percent) have taken a selfie.

The New ‘Dog Ate My Homework‘: Laptops, tablets and phones have become a vital component of student life and college studies. In fact, missing and broken computers, tablets and mobile phones are the new “dog ate my homework” excuse. One-third (33 percent) of college students report missing a class or college deadline because the electronic device they use for studies was lost or broken. Further, 15 percent of college students report lying that their computer or laptop was missing or broken to get out of a college deadline.

College Students Rarely Call: For all the time spent on their cell phones, one-third of college students say they never make calls. Instead, much of the time college students spend on their cell phones is focused on texting (20 percent), socializing on networking sites (17 percent), browsing the internet (12 percent) and listening to music (11 percent). While nine out of 10 college students prefer to hang out with their friends face-to-face versus connecting with them online, technology still rules their communication habits.

[Infographic] 5 tips to check the Quality of an eLearning Course

[Infographic] 5 tips to check the Quality of an eLearning Course | |
Total quality management is a journey, not a destination.” (Berry).

Quality check is a process that determines whether all important elements of quality are met as per the set criteria. Quality control helps to keep up the accuracy and efficiency of the course.

It is an essential step that should be followed before the course is actually delivered to the stakeholder. A thorough quality check eliminates errors during course development. Therefore, a systematic quality check, testing and reviews need to be done before any deliverables are released.

One way to do is to prepare a checklist with quality checks done periodically throughout the development process. This helps to identify the anomalies and take appropriate measures in a streamlined manner.

Here is the infographic that gives you tips to check the quality aspect of an e-learning course.

Four-step strategy to create Active Learning in any Learning Space: Online, F2F or Blended

Four-step strategy to create Active Learning in any Learning Space: Online, F2F or Blended | |
Active learning is not a theory but a teaching method that supports learning. The method uses techniques such as writing reflections, discussion, problem solving—activities that promote analysis, synthesis and evaluation that guide students towards achieving learning objectives. Typically tools are used to support the activity, for example handouts, whiteboard, chalkboard, smart phone apps, platforms such as Google Drive or Twitter. The choice of activity and tool are (or should be) determined by the learning goal, as well as other factors that include, time available, location (in-class or online), class size and others that are specific to the students, such as their skill level and access to tools.

[Infographic] Understanding the difference between eLearning and mLearning

[Infographic] Understanding the difference between eLearning and mLearning | |
The need to disseminate education efficiently imposed that classrooms should no longer be confined within four walls. So distance learning came into being. Then as technology evolved, lessons were not only delivered to mailboxes (the ones on the curb) but also reached learners on their computers. Thus eLearning developed. And now, because learners are no longer tethered to their desks (the rise of the remote and mobile workforce), learning is being delivered to their hand-held devices where they can consume it on the go.

Although e-Learning and m-Learning are used synonymously in many quarters, the two modes of learning differ in many respects. As a learning designer, you must know all about the two formats so that you can create effective instructional content for each.

We've gone over tons of articles that talk about the differences between eLearning and mLearning, so we've created this blog post to save you time doing your research. Here, we list down four of the main differences between both terms.
