Now that's what we're talking about! It just makes sense :-)
Mark Ayton's curator insight, February 1, 2013 5:49 AM

For ages I've been extoling the virtues of Google Docs for collaboration with just one caveat, only one person can work on a Form at a time. At last that caveat has been removed. This latest update just makes so much sense!

Open Library Week at Opensource.com

Open Library Week at Opensource.com | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

This week Opensource.com will be featuring articles on open source tools for libraries and sharing stories about experiences using open source in the library setting.

Our authors come from an array of backgrounds, but they have one thing in common: they know first hand and want to help more libraries to understand the power of open source. Serving the community, managing the library system, and providing quality care are all aspects of what makes open source a better choice for libraries.

Anthony Beal's insight:

Articles add so far include?

 

Best open source tools libraries need to know about

 - Golden opportunity for public libraries to meet digital needs of women
- Open Course Library's best resource: introductory college course materials
- How libraries can be a haven for makers
 - Review of the new Digital Public Library of America
- Exploring open source software developed for European libraries
- Why libraries are intrinsically open and should adopt open source solutions
 - Getting started with Koha, an open source library system

Mark Ayton's curator insight, April 3, 10:18 AM

When you're comfortable with MS Office, despite the sharing and real-time collaboration advantages, the leap to Google Docs can seem just too much! Then there's all your existing Word, Excel and Powerpoint files, will they all need reworking?

Fret no more! MS has replicated just about every Google feature in a very familiar Office environment. It's web-based so will run on any device with a browser. It has all the common MS Office menu items and features, plus it allows sharing and real time collaboration. There are even forms for collecting survey / quiz data in spreadsheets.

I'm not aware of any scripting / add-in capability yet, but I'm sure it won't be far away.

Using Twitter in Academic Teaching

Much is written about using Twitter for research, but what about using it in learning and teaching? It has plenty of applications there as well. 

This workshop presentation (containing a link to the handout) covers what Twitter is, why it's useful, debunks some Twitter myths, and illustrates ideas for Twitter use in modules, lectures and lab-sessions, using current examples from academics. It also covers embedding a Twitter stream in a Blackboard VLE.

Channylt's curator insight, March 31, 9:40 AM

An example of how a social media web 2.0 micro-blogging tool Twitter can be used for academic teaching and learning in the digital age. As a digital designer social media is the new frontier that I am excited to learn about and to use in an effective and purposeful way in e-learning design.

The constructivist learning model allows teachers to underpin specific learning outcomes or guidelines in how they would like learners to use Twitter but this does not mean that learners cannot go beyond this. 

Teachers can apply the SAMR model at all phases but I will focus on the transformational nature of twitter and that it has allowed Redefinition creating new tasks that were previously inconceivable.

Integrating iPads and Tablets into Library Services

Part 1 of 2-Part Webinar, presented March 14, 2013 by Rebecca K. Miller, Heather Moorfield-Lang, and Carolyn Meier.
Anthony Beal's insight:

Two presentations from the American Library Association on all aspects of using tablet computers in libraries. Very comprehensive and include lots of ideas for usage, apps, sample policies and user agreements and case studies from many different types of libraries. Part two contains the academic library case studies. American bias but lots of useful general information.

 

Part 2 - http://www.slideshare.net/millerrk/integrating-ipads-and-tablets-part-2

Inforgraphic is “graphical representation of information and data”. Infographics are often generally used to represent concisely data and statistics, or relationships or differences between two or more issues.

 

When reading an article, it is always desirable to find the information visually since our brain is always going to digest and remembered it more easily.

 

Moreover, the data representing graphically will allow display more information in less space.

Creative Commons is a great source for an extremely wide variety of photos, sketches and graphics that can be used free of charge. No licensing or royalties, EVER! It is a way to share work by making it available free of charge while still protecting it from others taking advantage of your work. Multiple levels of licensing/protection can be attached, from free use and editing rights all the way to non-commercial personal/educational use only with attribution, commercial use requires permission.

Minister praises new NIACE maths app "Maths Everywhere " | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

The new NIACE maths app – Maths Everywhere – has been praised by the Skills Minister, Matthew Hancock MP, at the AoC Conference in Birmingham today, as one example of how technology is transforming teaching and learning.

 

Matthew Hancock, said:

"Embracing technology involves changing the role of the teacher. Less lecturer, more tutor. Supporting and guiding pupils as they learn. Developing character. mentoring and motivating. Just as blackboards were resisted two hundred years ago because teachers didn’t want to turn their backs to the class, but quickly became ubiquitous, so in a few short years online technology will form a huge part of the way we teach."

Anthony Beal's insight:

Currently in BETA. and only available for the web. The Android and Apple apps are due for release by the middle of December. Feedback is welcomed. Have a look at - http://www.mathseverywhere.org.uk/ ;
