What will the future of education look like? KnowledgeWorks Foundation has just released the third edition of its education forecast, called Forecast 3.0, Recombinant Education: Regenerating the Learning Ecosystem, that outlines the deconstruction of the current education model, a change in educators’ roles based on their strengths, changing career pathways, and the role of technology in this realm.
Ernst & Young’s view is that the higher education sector is undergoing a fundamental transformation in terms of its role in society, mode of operation, and economic structure and value. To explore these themes and future directions, we have conducted an industry-wide study of the main forces impacting the higher education industry globally and locally, and the opportunities, challenges and implications for Australian universities. Our primary hypothesis is that the dominant university model in Australia — a broad-based teaching and research institution, supported by a large asset base and a large, predominantly in-house back office — will prove unviable in all but a few cases over the next 10-15 years.
"For the first few weeks of school, I focused on teaching the preschool and pre-k classes how to properly handle the iPads. For this activity we used small books to model the proper ways in which to pass the iPads. The three rules that we focused on were as follows:
1. Always pass the iPad with two hands. 2. Only use clean hands on the iPad. 3. When tapping the iPad, tap gently."
"The iPad is not going to replace teachers or ‘fix’ education. There is a cost implication that must be taken into account and only an educator will know if it is right for their students. Indeed the cost-benefit analysis for an establishment must take into account a host of factors when considering iPad use in the classroom. However, if there are iPads in the classroom, there are a number of applications that can enhance learning and assist the educator in developing student skills. In fact, the iPad allows educators to build on existing styles and increase flexibility in their classroom whilst personalising learning."
Throughout the year we have been using this app to document our work completed in class. The app is free, easy to use and always accessible; so it makes it easy to digitally document student work at the press of a few buttons.
Or when you actually let students take iPads home? This is how iPad implementation went down at the Redlands College. ... Of iPads Changed My Approach To Learning. Topics: 1:1, classroom iPads, education, guest, ICT, iPad, technology ...
QA International (QAI) have announced its Virtual Human Body App, available on iPad since last December, is now a universal app, optimized for viewing on iPhone and iPod touch, including support for the new 4" Retina display on iPhone 5.
““There’s an app for that” might seem something of a cliche now, but it’s managed to swell into quite the digital age truism. Critics may dismiss mobile entertainment, education, and organization as The End Of Communication As We Know It, but in many ways the available tech — when applied correctly, of course — might very well make us even better. Sharpening the mind, particularly after the school years wrap, is one such way apps can help propel individuals forward and fight off the encroach of stagnation, and we’ve found 50 of the best to do just that."
Online, in workshops, and even with friends, I frequently get asked What can the iPad actually do? as a sort of challenge to the worth of the device. I would rather that they ask, What can you actually do with an iPad?
