Why You Should Care About M-Learning

Why You Should Care About M-Learning | Information Technology in Education | Scoop.it

"Mobile learning is becoming increasingly popular in the workplace. There are a variety of reasons for this, but many have to do with the accessibility of mobile devices, the savings associated with a mobile enabled learning program, and the convenience mobile learning affords the learner. In fact, today if there is a learning management system (or courses) that do not perform on mobile devices, it is borderline in-excusable. In five years time, it will be flat-out archaic."

Good article about why companies need to start adopting mobile training. Some of the information echoes what I have in my e-learning presentation slides from last week! Technology is moving fast, and we have to move fast with it or fall severely behind. The infographic in this article is rather good.

A Parent's Guide to Minecraft: 5 Reasons to Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the Cubes

A Parent's Guide to Minecraft: 5 Reasons to Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the Cubes | Information Technology in Education | Scoop.it
I was, of course, a noob about to die inside Minecraft. Calling Minecraft a game doesn’t do it justice; Available on nearly every device where games can be played, from computers and consoles to smartphones, Minecraft boasts more than 100 million registered players, many of them barely out of kindergarten. Minecraft worlds are made up of chunky graphics reminiscent of the earliest video games.

This is a Minecraft household! It's good to read the many benefits of Minecraft, which can be used for both e-learning and m-learning (as it's available for desktop and mobile devices, although my son, the expert of the family, says the desktop experience is much richer and shuns the mobile version). Love the cubes!

Any "Minercrafter" in your home? I keep hearing Minecraft's music in my head and it is not a funky beat. lol This is a good read for parents.

Terry Nichols's curator insight, April 24, 2014 2:00 AM

There is no program I have witnessed that allows for better use of the 4C than minecraft if it is structured to multi players and time for discussion of creations.  My grand son has designated me as the miner and he is the architect of buildings, waterfalls underground and underwater caves and cities etcetc.  Survival is an art that includes planning, connection and need. Teachers could utilize games such as minecraft in the connection to real learning perseverance , creation, grit and To understand that "to plan is grand".
