5 Ways Teachers Can Encourage Deeper Learning With Personal Devices (EdSurge News)

5 Ways Teachers Can Encourage Deeper Learning With Personal Devices (EdSurge News) | iPads and Learning | Scoop.it
To ban or not to ban, that is always the question when it comes to personal devices in the classroom. But rather than fight this uphill battle (Generation Alpha is forecasted to be more technological than any previous), let's figure out how to leverage these little machines. If used intentionally, m

With effective monitoring, mobile devices can be integrated into courses and classroom time
Yeison Ossa Trejos's curator insight, November 2, 12:45 PM
From my point of view, personal devices such cell phones, tablets, ipads, among others, can be a huge risk if we allow students to use them in the classroom. However, it is also true that we as teachers should try to find useful ways to incorporate these potential resources into our lessons if we want to increase learner involvement and motivation while at the same time improving time management, teacher-student interaction, meaningful learning and real-time provision of feedback. 

All these educational factors can be simultaneously addressed if teachers take some time to do a little research on the web to find out the countless activities that digital devices allow them to perform along with your students both in and outside the classroom. 
Sebastián Vásquez's curator insight, December 4, 6:07 PM
One of the most common expressions that I use to listen to nowadays is "put your cellphone away". Many teacher deal in their daily basis with students distracted by their phones and most of time they take desperate actions towards this situations which leads to a rough environment and affects the atmosphere of the classroom. In fact, one need we have in this current days is that of creating students perception towards the use of this devices which is not  a short way to walk but neither impossible. Providing the conditions and raising awareness about other possible uses into the classroom as well as raising curiosity to what is happening in the classroom will increase the possibilities of obtaining better behaviors in terms of technology. Our task then is to start thinking of strategies to implement since the very basis of the students academic life.

Why do digital rights matter?

As we increasingly conduct our lives online – shopping, socializing and sharing information – our digital rights, particularly the rights to privacy and freedom of expression, are becoming more important. We need to understand how our data is being used by companies, governments and internet giants such as Facebook and Google. Is it being handled fairly and scrupulously, or sold or shared without our consent?

Revelations about surveillance programmes and digital hacking have sparked political and diplomatic wrangles. National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden has called for new international laws to protect data privacy, arguing that now we know about mass data surveillance it is time to “assert our traditional and digital rights so that we can protect them”.

These are some good tips for using technology in the classroom.

Sophie Charlotte Foster's curator insight, October 8, 2013 5:13 AM

The article discusses the emergence of Ipads into education and academic syllabus. Statistics are given - with the majority favouring the use of tablets, particularly Ipads, in educational environments. Teachers are allowing students to use Ipads as it is believe that students study more efficiently with tablets. There has been an increase in Ipad sales, and this is due to thousands of school districts providing students with Ipads as a studying device. A large percentage of students use or would like to use tablets as a learning tool as it is convenient and efficient. Publishers are also preparing for technological change in education. They are providing digital copies of textbooks to Apple in order to remain innovative in education. It is evident that Ipad use in education is the future and the way forward.

Tech Billionaires Want to Destroy the Universe

Tech Billionaires Want to Destroy the Universe | iPads and Learning | Scoop.it
First they changed the way we bore ourselves online, revolutionized hotels and taxis and minor financial transactions, and gave us lightbulbs that won’t switch on if you haven’t installed the right software driver. Now—it was always inevitable—they want to destroy the universe.

The news was snuck without attribution or comment into a New Yorker profile of Silicon Valley venture capitalist Sam Altman, a brief sentence that might be our first warning of the apocalypse: “Many people in Silicon Valley have become obsessed with the simulation hypothesis, the argument that what we experience as reality is in fact fabricated in a computer; two tech billionaires have gone so far as to secretly engage scientists to work on breaking us out of the simulation.”

This line has been dutifully repeated by all the usual news sites, usually as a minor, amusing little anecdote—nerds versus the Matrix, tech shamans and their wacky ontological theories—without much thought going into what this would actually mean. Ignore for a moment any objections you might have to the simulation hypothesis, and everything impractical about the idea that we could somehow break out of reality, and think about what these people are trying to do.

Eric_Determined / Eric Silverstein's curator insight, May 24, 12:04 AM

At the end of the day, it’s not computers or devices you are selling to -- it’s people.

 

5 shareable lessons from Apple's success:

 

1. Focus on the things that matter.

 

Success comes when your company and your team focus on mastering one to two critical things. The lesson here is that it’s better to do a few things well than many things middlingly.

 

2. Customer experience is king.

 

It is much easier to increase the value of an existing customer than it is to find a new one. When you make your customer experience king, you create a happy, loyal user who is more likely to consider expanding their purchase.

 

 3. Excellence in execution.

 

Apple recognized that every consumer touchpoint in the real world and the digital world, needs to be seamless. Every aspect of the sales process and backend operation needs to be 100% on brand and flawless. Anything short of that undermines credibility and trust. 

 

4. Only those things that can scale matter.

 

Your product needs to be built for high adoption. This means your sales and product strategies also need to scale. The challenge here is to balance scale with quality and precision. 

 

5. Build a data-driven team.

 

B2B and B2C customers alike do far more research on their own and are not interested in being sold to. Instead, they prefer to gather information and make decisions independently based on what they’ve learned. Cultivate transparency within your organization, and leverage data to enable honest conversations about progress, user acquisition and retention, what is working and what is not.

 

There are no “secrets” to success in business, focus on delivering the best customer experience.

 

What additional lesson are you applying from your Apple experience?

Very interesting subject to be considered and discussed. Another excellent application for time management is the use of mind maps. Each professional should have one, to organize ideas in time and thus optimize it.
