Too Late to Learn? Helping the Reluctant With Technology - Lingua Franca - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Too Late to Learn? Helping the Reluctant With Technology - Lingua Franca - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Interpreter education | Scoop.it

It’s hard to imagine an academic with poor computer skills. And yet, they aren’t that rare. I know, because I work with them. One correspondent doesn’t know how to open an attachment to an e-mail. Another asks me to convert the edited chapters of his book to an old version of Microsoft Word. Another asks to dictate her page-proof corrections over the phone. One author still sends his manuscripts in WordStar, for pity’s sake. (You have to be a best seller to get away with that, by the way; others must submit work in an approved format.)

The "Kid Blog' is a safe and effective way to allow your students to keep up to date blogs in a secure evironment. With these blogs students can not only post their own blogs, but oarticipate in discussions.

I feel this is a gerat resourse to use within the classroom, as students and teachers can keep track of students posts and especially look at their progress throughout the year.

Looks like a great tool and it's entirely free. I like that it is based on the Wordpress platform, but removes the clutter and distractions that other blogging services have.

Jennifer Kleiner's curator insight, March 3, 2015 12:53 PM

Bubbl.us made this list and I think it can be a great educational tool! Mind mapping helps learners to organize information more clearly, and clearly organized content is essential to retaining  information. There are other interesting tools here as well.

The Future Is Now: 15 Innovations to Watch For

The Future Is Now: 15 Innovations to Watch For | Interpreter education | Scoop.it
The next three years hold out the prospect of transforming the higher-education experience in positive ways.

 

Profound transformations have reshaped the higher-education landscape in roughly 50-year intervals. During the early 19th century, the colonial colleges were joined by several hundred more religiously founded institutions. The mid-19th century saw the rise of public colleges, culminating in the Morrill Act of 1862. The turn of the 20th century witnessed the emergence of the modern research university as well as the articulation of the Wisconsin Idea, that public universities should serve the public, as well as the appearance of extension services. The 1960s saw the transformation of normal schools into comprehensive universities, the rapid proliferation of community colleges, the end of legal segregation in higher education, and sharply increased federal aid to colleges and universities.
