i think that the mobile learning section (#2) was very interesting for me. as a student, tablets are very easy and a wonderful way to learn, but we still should be exposed to things like textbooks, instruments, and a pencil. Many children now have been completely consumed in their electronics, I am guilty of complaining when i have to put my iPad down.

How Technology Has Changed Our Idea of ‘Knowledge,’ and What This Means for Schools

How Technology Has Changed Our Idea of ‘Knowledge,’ and What This Means for Schools | eLearning | Scoop.it

The fact that knowledge is no longer fixed, but constantly evolving, and the speed at which new knowledge appears online have contributed to our sense of “information overload,” Weinberger said. And that leads to another way that our evolving sense of knowledge is transforming how we learn: We must learn to accept that true mastery is impossible.

Gabi Witthaus's curator insight, September 3, 2013 1:47 AM

Interesting idea - this could be useful in EFL teaching or just for people who are reading in English as a second language and need a bit of help.

 

I tried it on the Adobe Connect website to see if it would demystify some of the 'Marketese' though, and it didn't help much! A sentence such as 'Powering mission-critical web conferencing solutions, end-to-end, on virtually any device' is full of everyday words which are being used in an unnecessarily obscure way. Which is why I'm in favour of simply writing in plain English (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plain_english).

 

On that subject, I recently discovered the absolutely wonderful Simple English Wikipedia (http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page), which does just that.

Department of Education, Training and Employment: Learning Object - Direct a Robot: which way?

more...
Sandy Shannon's curator insight, August 10, 2013 7:19 PM

Kylie’s post started me thinking about the current limitations and the future possibilities of learning objects to facilitate socially constructed learning and redefinition of tasks. I was intrigued by the idea of Learning Objects with the capacity to allow for redefinition of a task although I suppose in a another context this might be called gaming ?

In the digital environment this learning object is an individual task. When students discuss the choices and options as a class while interacting with the learning object they are provided with opportunities to construct understandings together. Is there a way to embed this type of socially constructivist learning into Learning Objects?

I began to consider the possibilities of combining Learning Objects with the capabilities of tools such as “ Voice Thread”. This would open up possibilities for discussions between students to occur within the digital environment and regardless of their physical location. While working in a Learning Object (that supports students to discover their own solutions) students might record their thinking or explain what they did to solve the problem. As other students work with the Learning Object they could choose to listen to advice from their peers (previous or current participants). They might even be able to rate the usefulness of a peers advice (to provide feedback to that student). This peer advice could conceivably take the place of the automated responses that are programmed into the Learning Object

The task is redefined as learners share advice and justifications regardless of their physical location or the time they are participating. Providing options for feedback about the usefulness of the advice given also allows for a bank of most useful posts, chosen by the students themselves, to be compiled and accessed. 

Brett Taylor's comment, August 12, 2013 4:01 PM
I'm a big fan of the use of suitable gaming opportunities as a means to promote "serious" learnings. Too often, especially in the adult learning environment, we remove the fun element that is inherent in younger educational activities - time to revisit gaming as a constructive adult learning tool.
Brett Taylor's curator insight, August 12, 2013 4:05 PM

The whole notion of gaming as a valid learning tool has been challenged so often in the adult environment in which I am involved such that the majority of activities have lost what elements of fun and semi-competitiveness they may have had.

 

Adults like to enjoy the learning process too and perhaps it is time to engage in the serious game concept more fully for this audience.

Digital Experiences and Expectations of Tomorrow’s Teachers

Digital Experiences and Expectations of Tomorrow’s Teachers | eLearning | Scoop.it

This new report, “Learning in the 21st Century: Digital Experiences and Expectations of Tomorrow’s Teachers,” is the latest in the series and provides new insights that will inform college and university based teacher preparation programs as well as the induction and professional development processes within K-12 schools and districts. Tomorrow’s teachers may have the keys to finally unlock the potential of technology to transform teaching and learning, but much depends upon their experiences in their preparation program and how well future school leadership can support their expectations for essential technology tools and resources.

Hi @Kelly, @David and @Ilana. It's a major battle. What techniques have you used?

"While there has been a bit of question as to the effectiveness of SAMR, a shift to move beyond SAMR, and a few proposed changes to the structure of the model floating around online, I have to say that hearing Dr. Ruben Puentedura (you may know him as the father of SAMR) speak at iPad Summit a few weeks ago still felt like a rare app-ortunity and a truly inspiring treat.
