How Can Web 2.0 Curation Tools Be Used in the Classroom? | MindShift

How Can Web 2.0 Curation Tools Be Used in the Classroom? | MindShift | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Curation was once the purview of experts and professionals who collected and preserved resources. But Web 2.0 curation opens the door for others, including for students.

Scoop.it is interested in developing this tool for use in the classroom “Curation also brings the possibility to build around a specific topic or subject of research an interactive discussion between the teacher and his or her students. Suddenly the room is open, without being an organic process without any structure. Curation offers a context on the biggest learning playground the world has ever known.”

It's in the bag: the high-tech, light way to pack schoolbooks - The Irish Times - Fri, Aug 12, 2011

It's in the bag: the high-tech, light way to pack schoolbooks - The Irish Times - Fri, Aug 12, 2011 | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The Irish division of a British firm aims to transform a beleaguered schools system with cheaper and less back-breaking e-books...

Pupils in up to eight Irish post-primary schools will be at the vanguard of technology when the new term starts, clutching Intel mini-laptops preloaded with e-books that cover the Junior Cert curriculum rather than a bag full of textbooks. A small but significant step in integrating technology into Irish classrooms.

ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education| Teaching for enduring understanding | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Wiggins and McTighe provide some guidelines on determining what it is you really want students to understand at the end of the course. As much as we might be loathe to admit it, not everything we teach is of equal value. So Wiggins and McTighe propose prioritizing learning goals.....It’s not how much material we cover, it’s how deeply we uncover it, how deeply we dig down to the core principles or processes of our discipline, of which we want our students to have a lasting—enduring—understanding.

10-major-mobile-learning-trends-to-watch-for!

10-major-mobile-learning-trends-to-watch-for! | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Technology has been used in the classroom for decades now. But with the advent of cloud computing and the proliferation of smaller, more portable computers and Internet-capable devices, it’s now possible to bring the classroom into the technology instead. Mobile learning focuses on learning through mobile devices, allowing learners to move about in a classroom or remotely learn from any location of their choice. The movement has gained a lot of steam in recent years, and despite some criticisms, isn’t likely to fade fast – especially as new technologies that make mobile learning more practical continue to emerge. While the applications of mobile learning are growing all the time, some of the major trends are highlighted here, showing the changes in how we teach, learn and interact in educational environments.
