How the iPad Is Changing Education

How the iPad Is Changing Education | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

The iPad may only be two years old, but it's already begun to change many things. Reading is one of them. Work is another. It is selling like crazy, but it will be some time before most of the people you know own a tablet.

60% of students say they wouldn’t attend a school without free WiFi | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

Surprisingly, according to research by Educause, only 78% of students feel that wifi is extremely valuable for their academic success, while 60% of students said they wouldn’t attend a college all if it didn’t offer free wifi. The study also finds that 47% of students believe technology makes professors better at their jobs, yet over 30% of students found their instructors to be incapable of getting technology working without student aid.

The History Of Learning Tools [Infographic]

The History Of Learning Tools [Infographic] | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

You’re going to want to print out this infographic and, at the very least, share it with your fellow teachers and even students. It’s all about the history of education technology and could be used to educate just about anyone on how far we’ve come in a short period of time. We did a more in-depth look at the history of education technology about a year ago but this infographic is a lot more… fun.

 

Anyway, the below infographic from CTU can be viewed below or downloaded as a PDF here (so you can fire up that color printer). Enjoy the walk down memory lane!

___________

Just plain cool. Sell the love of reading. Sometimes I think it's almost just that simple. It's not of course, but selling the love is an under-rated strategy in addressing issues of literacy and the actual value of reading.

10 Changes to Expect from the Library of the Future | Online Universities

10 Changes to Expect from the Library of the Future | Online Universities | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

Libraries have acted as community cornerstones for millennia, and every April marks School Library Month, celebrating how they promote education and awareness in an open, nurturing space. What makes them such lasting institutions, though, isn’t the mere act of preserving books and promoting knowledge. Rather, it’s the almost uncanny ability to consistently adapt to the changing demands of the local populace and emerging technology alike.

"n hindsight 60 apps in 60 minutes was a bit ambitious. I kind of felt as if we were auctioning off apps. (Perhaps a Nifty Fifty pack would have been a better fit.) For those of you who missed our session…or those of you who attended and caught whiplash from the sheer speed of it, here is a list of all of the apps we (John Samuelson and I) featured."
