Raspberry Pi: 'a great experiment'

Raspberry Pi: 'a great experiment' | eLearning tools | Scoop.it
Rory Cellan-Jones gets to grips with the Raspberry Pi with the help of computing student Isabell Long.

 

"The Raspberry Pi, a credit-card sized computer designed to encourage children to learn programming, caught the imagination of millions when it was unveiled in February.

 

Now ... the first devices are beginning to be delivered to customers.

Mine arrived in the post a few days ago, so small that it came through the letterbox.

I wondered how to set about testing it and decided to invite a teenage programmer, Isabell Long, to come and help me out."

Learning with 'e's: Net worth of the iPad - iPad or iFad?

Learning with 'e's: Net worth of the iPad -  iPad or iFad? | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

Much interest was shown in yesterday's post iPad or iFad? It focused on whether schools should provide iPads for all their students. In the UK several schools are already doing this, and all have received great criticism from pressure groups who claim that it is an expensive gimmick. All down through the history of technology, as each new tool is introduced, there are those who will resist and complain, usually without any real evidence to justify their complaints. The main objection against one iPad per child projects is that there is little evidence to show that the new devices actually improve learning gain. The schools counter this argument by saying that with projects in their infancy it does take time to set up research and gather data, interpret it and discover whether an affect is in evidence.

Teacher-Developed Apps Fill Lesson Gaps - High School Notes (usnews.com) | eLearning tools | Scoop.it
Educators take technology into their own hands, using classroom insight to create educational apps.

 

Jeff Scheur, an English teacher at Whitney Young Magnet High School in Chicago, created an app to drill his students on apostrophes, conjunctions, and run-on sentences.

 

Scheur developed NoRedInk, a Web-based application, when traditional red ink wasn't yielding the desired results in his classroom. Despite marking up essays with corrections and comments, his students continued to make the same mistakes.

How I use Twitter in my classroom UPDATE 2

How I use Twitter in my classroom UPDATE 2 | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

After two articles in the irish papers (links below) where I was asked about how I use twitter in my classroom, I decided to detail what exactly I do, so that it’s a little clearer.

 

Before I begin though we have to talk about fear. There’s so much fear about the educational value of twitter from teachers, managers, parents and students that some might be worried about entering that lion’s den. My answer to these fears is simple: the internet is where kids are, schools have to go there. It was video for an earlier generation and tv before that. It was probably radio once and I’m sure some Greeks were worried about writing things down rather than learning them by heart. Students will always be ahead of us, so why not meet them there, rather than dismiss them as fad-followers or time-wasters?

How Teachers Make Cell Phones Work in the Classroom

How Teachers Make Cell Phones Work in the Classroom | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

At its core, the issues associated with mobile learning get to the very fundamentals of what happens in class everyday. At their best, cell phones and mobile devices seamlessly facilitate what students and teachers already do in thriving, inspiring classrooms. Students communicate and collaborate with each other and the teacher.

 

They apply facts and information they’ve found to formulate or back up their ideas. They create projects to deepen their understanding, association with, and presentation of ideas.

How to Download e-books from the Public Library on the iPad | PadGadget | eLearning tools | Scoop.it
Have you checked out a book from your public library and read it on your iPad yet? You didn’t know you could do that? It’s possible for library patrons to borrow books from their public library, read them on the iPad’s gorgeous screen, all without leaving home or ever having to worry about an overdue library book.

 

The majority of public libraries offer digital media to their patrons. As e-readers and tablets become more popular, it is likely that the amount of digital content available to readers will increase, as will public libraries’ commitment to invest in digital content. (USA)

Social Media Landscape 2012 « « FredCavazza.net FredCavazza.net | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

A few years ago, Charlene Lee from Forrester said social networks will be like air. We are now in 2012 and social media had never been this important. I regularly talk to people referring to social media as the web, the whole web. Indeed, the web as became social, and it is hard to find non-social websites. This being said, how can you explain social, when anything is social? It’s simple: you draw a chart with the most emblematic social platforms.

 

As I have been doing it for the last four years (2008, 2009 and 2011), let me introduce you to my latest social media landscape to help you understand the big picture of who is doing what.

Dean J. Fusto's curator insight, February 16, 2014 10:49 AM

Everything you ever wanted to know about PLE (Personal Learning Environment) frameworks. Imagine if every school provide time for teachers and admin to develop a PLE as their own personal, individualized PD statement. I've included this in the Edu-Vision collection at my site http://teachlearnlead.weebly.com/ although I also could categorize this particular PLE presentation under the Linking Literacy category. Excellent piece!

"I think the revised Bloom’s Taxonomy is wrong.

 

I know this statement sounds heretical in the realms of education, but I think this is something we should rethink, especially since it is so widely taught to pre-service teachers. I agree that the taxonomy accurately classifies various types of cognitive thinking skills. It certainly identifies the different levels of complexity. But its organizing framework is dead wrong. Here’s why."
