As the technology grows more availalbe, the Flipped Learning Model offers some very intersting potential related to :Bring Your Own Device.  While in the process of solving a problem, a student can access the content material on a tablet, school computer or the student's own smart phone, right there in class.  This keeps it fresh and present when needed.

Faculty frequently mention having interest in a flipped classroom. This resource may be helpful in determining how to apply the concept in one's own class.

We Just Can't Keep Up...

We Just Can't Keep Up... | Future Education | Scoop.it

TED is awesome…  I recently watched a TED talk by Eddie Obeng  who spoke about our fast changing world.  His central focus was the idea that the pace at which the world is advancing is exponential 

whereas the pace of learning and education is and has been consistent.  Schools are improving – we just can’t keep up.

 

Consequently, educators are feverishly looking for ways to make schools once-again interesting for kids.

 

One of my favorite progressive educational leaders and thinkers is Sir Ken Robinson@SirKenRobinson.  He gave a TED talk in 2006 that has since been viewed by over 16 million people. 

 

He is an advocate for fostering creativity in children because in the end, it will be creativity that solves the problems of tomorrow. 

 

His concern (shared by many) is that our school systems and institutions are designed around conformity, greatly reducing the ability of educators to foster creativity.

Excellent Videos OnThe Use of Augmented Reality Apps by Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Excellent Videos OnThe Use of Augmented Reality Apps by Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Future Education | Scoop.it

"Below are some good videos I got a few days ago on examples of how some augmented reality apps are being used with kids to help them improve their learning. If the concept of augmented reality if all new to you then here is a brief definition of it: Augmented Reality is exactly what the name implies: an augmented version of realty created by mixing technology with the known world. It might be a distorted, augmented, or less augmented version of the actual world but in its basic form, augmented reality is a simulation or rather a way of superimposing digital contents into the real context."

The Department of Citizenship & Immigration in Australia created an augmented reality app for Harmony day which was AWESOME. I'm all for this near-holographic technology in classrooms! Best thing is - it's technology that gets students out of their chairs and keeps them engaged while they walk around exploring the 360 degree augmented "reality".

NASA also made a cool Mars Rover app.
