Inclusive teaching and learning
Many learners struggle to engage with formal education. This can be for a range of reasons and there's no simple answer to any of them. This site is about reducing the barriers to engagement wherever possible. It will often focus on technology but that's only because technology has a lot to offer in many contexts. Other 'human based' approaches can be just as effective so they'll also get space when they cross the horizon.

Don't you just love mobile apps? So do malicious code writers

Don't you just love mobile apps? So do malicious code writers | Inclusive teaching and learning | Scoop.it
There are some surprising numbers available that tell a dark story about mobile apps and what they can be doing on your device.

 

By now you've read about malicious apps that leak privacy data, but do you realize how serious it really is? If not, you'd better pay attention to the following statistics gathered by Symantec*. And if you think that Google Play is 100% safe, it isn't. I have some data that yields some shocking results about the number of malicious apps waiting to grab your data.

 

===> Unfortunately, the playing surface for Internet naughtiness has changed in the past couple of years and you need to know that it's only getting worse. <===

Oh dear - the world of technology seems to be one step forward two steps back but these issues are important especially of we are going to be using mobile devices in education and promoting BYOD approaches.

Win7 is only Beta at the moment so might be worth waiting a bit but certainly useful kind of tool to explore. Suddenly it doesn't matter what device you have - you can still teach with the best from different platforms!

NounProject

The Noun Project collects, organizes and adds to the highly recognizable symbols that form the world's visual language, so we may share them in a fun and meaningful way.


The aim is to produce a simple graphic for every noun in the English language.

 

Images are posted as high-quality vector files that can be imported, resized, and modified by any photo editing software.

 

The images are in the public domain or shared with Creative Commons licenses. 

 

The possible uses for these images, by educators, are endless: bulletin boards, signs, learner projects/asignments, labels are a few ideas that come to mind withpout much effort.
