New versus old media: how best to get information to smallholder farmers

New versus old media: how best to get information to smallholder farmers | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

For smallholders in developing countries, information on weather, markets and agricultural techniques is key to improving productivity. But what is the best way of delivering that information? Here, three projects based on radio, mobile technology and social networking give an insight into what can work.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, January 15, 12:43 PM
YouTube hosts a treasure trove of excellent educational content that speaks to the learning needs of a wide variety of audiences. Some of this content is created by dedicated teachers and educators who took it upon themselves to promote learning beyond the traditional walls of their classrooms. For instance, in the area of English language learning, there are numerous language teachers (including EFL and ESL) who have set their own YouTube channels and provide video lessons covering almost everything related to language learning. Today's post highlights some of these channels. The purpose is to provide language teachers with relevant video resources that they can use in their instruction in class. Check out the list below and share with us your feedback in our Facebook page.

3 connectivity trends to watch in 2017

3 connectivity trends to watch in 2017 | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it
Educators know that students need a sound foundation to succeed. For many districts, the E-rate program is part of the proverbial cement that lays the foundation. Implemented by the FCC in 1997, the E-rate program provides discounted telecommunications and internet access for schools and libraries.

Last year, the E-rate program helped connect 53.6 million students with high-speed data lines to more than 120,000 school buildings and over 4,000 library systems nationwide. The program serves communities in virtually every zip code in the United States.

Since the Telecommunications Act was passed in 1996, leaders have made significant strides to improve the E-rate program. Still, there is work to be done. It’s estimated by the Funds For Learning 2016 E-rate Trends Report that, over the next three years, schools and libraries expect their need for internet bandwidth to increase by more than 50 percent.

This immense number means there are big changes on the horizon, and 2017 could shape up to be an influential year for connectivity and learning in schools and classrooms across the U.S. Here are the three major trends expected to play a role in this monumental year:

School systems face a number of challenges, including teacher shortages, a lack of clear methods for developing high-quality teachers, and teacher burnout and attrition, to name a few. And even the best teachers struggle to address the diverse learning needs of their students or find time to focus on developing students’ deeper learning and noncognitive skills amidst pressures to cover core instruction.

From Dabbling to Doing: 6 Tools That Excite Kids About Coding - MindShift

From Dabbling to Doing: 6 Tools That Excite Kids About Coding - MindShift | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it
It’s clear coding and computer science have become key priorities in K-12 education. From Code.org’s massive round of funding and the formulation of the Computer Science Coalition to President Obama’s Computer Science For All initiative to big school districts, like the San Francisco Unified School District, building K-12 computer science curriculum – there’s indications that this is more than a passing fad.

Many educators are excited about the opportunities coding and computer science offer students, but with these new curricular priorities come the major practical, pedagogical challenges of building a scope and sequence and then transforming it into units and lessons (not to mention, you know, teaching). Given the problems computer science has had meeting the needs of all students — especially early on — there’s some tough challenges ahead for school leaders and educators to make sure computer science for all doesn’t fall flat.

Simulation-based learning allows us to play in a highly immersive environment that reflects aspects of the real world. In virtual simulations, we can explore and create with much lower stakes than we would encounter in the real world. Questions of “What if?” flourish in a virtual simulation as we create and experience new possibilities with increasing realism. With smartphones making access to virtual reality easier and easier, virtual simulations can now become part of place-based learning in the classroom.

6 Steps To Create Fantastic eLearning Courses Quickly - eLearning Industry | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

The global eLearning industry was estimated to reach a whopping figure of US$157 billion in 2015. Globally, the industry is growing at a compounded annual growth rate of 9%. Distinct advantages of eLearning for service providers as well as learners, and low cost of starting the business has attracted huge competition from all size of firms.

Therefore, to survive and thrive in the eLearning industry, the service providers need to develop a mechanism that enables them to create fantastic courses at a faster pace than ever before.

University opens without any teachers - BBC News

University opens without any teachers - BBC News | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it
A university without any teachers has opened in California this month.

It's called 42 - the name taken from the answer to the meaning of life, from the science fiction series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

The US college, a branch of an institution in France with the same name, will train about a thousand students a year in coding and software development by getting them to help each other with projects, then mark one another's work.

This might seem like the blind leading the blind - and it's hard to imagine parents at an open day being impressed by a university offering zero contact hours.

But since 42 started in Paris in 2013, applications have been hugely oversubscribed.
No tuition fees

Recent graduates are now working at companies including IBM, Amazon, and Tesla, as well as starting their own firms.

42 was founded by French technology billionaire Xavier Niel, whose backing means there are no tuition fees and accommodation is free.

Mr Niel and his co-founders come from the world of technology and start-ups, and they are trying to do to education what Facebook did to communication and Airbnb to accommodation.

Today, many educators are moving towards using handy, and extremely convenient technology in the classroom tools that are changing teacher’s lives forever. But, with so many apps and technology in the classroom tools out there, where do we start? Here a few apps that are changing the way educators use technology in the classroom to complete their daily tasks.
