MPrep: Making education mobile for the world

MPrep: Making education mobile for the world | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

Though Kenya has emerged as a regional powerhouse for mobile innovation, many of its future visionaries remain burdened by the structural challenges—overcrowding, underfunding, and lack of access—facing the 9 million Kenyan children in primary school.

The problem is especially daunting in rural areas, where more than two out of three current students will fail their classes, including 80 percent of girls.

In response, MPrep founder Toni Maraviglia designed the app to make it possible for teachers to deliver quality, one-on-one attention to students, and to monitor their performance in detail, even remotely—all just a text message away in a country with widespread mobile access.

Augmented Reality and Web 3.0

Augmented Reality and Web 3.0 | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

Augmented reality could open up huge potential for education outside of the classroom and enable students to learn and interact with whatever is in their immediate physical environment at any particular time. It could also transform publishing and the way we interact with books and images by enabling us to transform them into interactive multimedia.

How computers are learning to be creative

How computers are learning to be creative | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it
We're on the edge of a new frontier in art and creativity -- and it's not human. Blaise Agüera y Arcas, principal scientist at Google, works with deep neural networks for machine perception and distributed learning. In this captivating demo, he shows how neural nets trained to recognize images can be run in reverse, to generate them. The results: spectacular, hallucinatory collages (and poems!) that defy categorization. "Perception and creativity are very intimately connected," Agüera y Arcas says. "Any creature, any being that is able to do perceptual acts is also able to create."

The good, the bad and the ugly: Technology and 21st Century Learning. | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

The problem with universal access to technology is the fact that it provides almost unrestricted access to information. Much of this information is fantastic and can give a real boost to the learning experience. The danger exists where there is mis-information, inaccuracies and worst of all information that might promote prejudice, discrimination, hatred and violence.

How to become a better eLearning Designer

How to become a better eLearning Designer | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it
One of the unique aspects of the e-learning industry is how often it changes and how quickly you have to adapt to that change. Regardless of your background, education, or professional experience, becoming a better e-learning designer requires a willingness to learn new things.

In recent free webinar on the 10 Lessons Learned My First Year in E-Learning, I talked about my realization that the field of e-learning is so much more than just the practice of instructional design. Becoming a better e-learning designer required me to learn the subtlety of graphic design, the art of visual communications, the technical aspects of user interface design, and much more! Instructional design was just one piece of a larger skillset that I needed to master.

Online education trend: 20 resources for Online Learning | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it
Getting started with something new is usually a challenging and time-consuming task. Traditionally, you need to bury your nose in books. It sounds boring. However, on the Internet it takes a whole new turn. With numerous online educational programs, things begin to look more pleasant and enjoyable. You can quickly grasp the solution and remain in a positive mood. It is not surprising that online learning has doubled in popularity and has become a real trend.

You can find certified tutors for different issues: there are walkthroughs for everyone and everything from knitting a sweater to 'cooking' a fully working mobile application. You can mature as a specialist or taste a brand-new field. The great thing is that real experts are involved. Not only do they explain techniques and basics but also share their precious experience and even reveal their secrets.
