The Voice-Off: Android vs. Siri

The Voice-Off: Android vs. Siri | iOS in Education | Scoop.it
Is speech recognition better on smartphones running Google’s operating system or Apple’s? That depends on how it’s used.
Gordon Shupe's insight:

I used to teach keyboarding. It has become increasingly more difficult to convince students that it is worth the time and effort (discipline) to develop this skill. But the promises of speech driven technology are really about to make the keyboard obsolete.

 

The unfortunate part is most people don't realize what a complicated process speech recognition and dictation is. I hear people cursing their smartphone, and often it really is not the software's fault.

Inquiry Learning Vs. Standardized Content: Can They Coexist?

Inquiry Learning Vs. Standardized Content: Can They Coexist? | iOS in Education | Scoop.it
Everyday there is less standardization of information, making it nearly impossible to decide what a student should know. Are sticking to content standards still appropriate?
Gordon Shupe's insight:

Which Is a more reasonable goal for our students? 'I know' or 'I  can learn?'

I found this thought-provoking: 'REDEFINE RIGOR. As the Google-age fully blossoms, the fundamental shift is from information to attitude. The instant, ubiquitous availability of knowledge puts enormous responsibility on the individual, as they try to sift through, discern, apply, and share information.'

Euneos's curator insight, August 7, 2013 6:56 AM

Android -tabletit yleistyvät eikä iPad ole enää ainoa hyvä vaihtoehto tabletien opetuskäytössä. Niinpä Apple vastaa markkinointia tehostamalla. Tabletien käyttö aloitetaan usein jo ennen kouluikää. Niinpä Apple tarjoaa iTunesin digitaalista ekosysteemiä jo alle 13-vuotiaille. Kuinkahan nuoria ovat nuorimmat iTunesista lataajat?

Do Tablets Make Employees Better Multi-Taskers?

Gordon Shupe's insight:

Tablet users believe that they are better equipped to multitask. A very interesting question for educators who are considering allowing the use of mobile devices. If the teaching culture is teacher-centric and single path rather than personalized learning, the educators may be uncomfortable with 'multitasking' in their class. Mature, productive users really need to actively address various perspectives, manage distractions, & alternate solutions while accomplishing any task. This is a part of the learning process.
