8 Frequent Mistakes Made with iPads in School | Gadgets and education | Scoop.it

iPad mobility means that students can move about taking photographs, recording audio, and shooting video, in any number of places. They can make multimedia stories, demonstrate how to solve math problems, create and simulate virtual experiences of virtually anything, and on and on. The skill of learning to edit media to enhance a project will be essential for the future. Active creativity and personalized learning are some of the main assets of any tablet.

Maria João Loureiro's curator insight, February 1, 3:37 PM

Em síntese, as competências a desenvolver (qualquer que seja o nível de ensino em diferentes patamares, diria eu), relacionam-se com a literacia da informação (com e sem recurso as tecnologias mais recentes), ou seja, pesquisa, seleção e tratamento de informação (para a transformar em conhecimento - diferente de copy/paste) e comunicação (oral e escrita) de ideias, de si próprio e do que faz (de forma rigorosa e atraente), tendo em conta as normas de privacidade e ética (que em contextos online são bastas vezes descuidadas) . Parece-me ficar a faltar outras tantas, como a resolução de problemas, a colaboração, o aprender a aprender...

EdTech in 2014: Wiping out the blackboard The Economist

EdTech in 2014: Wiping out the blackboard The Economist | Gadgets and education | Scoop.it

Classrooms have had computers for decades, but in the past few years the buzz about “education technology” (or edtech) has become persistent, especially in America. This is because of new generations of learning software, free online tutorials and better connectivity.

 

Students are also getting ever more gadgets, as iPads and other tablets are handed out in schools. Adaptive learning software is starting to show great promise. These tools offer personalised education for every child, so that they can learn at their own pace.

 

Free online courses such as the KhanAcademy’s mathematics classes are allowing schools to take a more selective approach in acquiring learning resources. (Why buy a digital maths textbook when you can use an online course free?)
