Instead of being required to use state money for state-adopted materials like textbooks, Texas school districts can now choose which instructional materials to purchase. Having this option, Amarillo Independent School District chose to shelve textbooks at its Amarillo Area Center for Advanced Learning and invest in a 1:1 iPad initiative, venturing into the ever-growing world …

A snapshot of Google's uphill battle getting Android into schools | GigaOM Ed Tech News | iTunes U as a Channel of Open Educational Resources | Scoop.it

In May at its annual developer conference, Google announced plans to launch a new Android app store, called Google Play for Education, for teachers this fall. But there’s some new evidence that it’s in for a tough battle with Apple.

 

According to a new survey, iPads are far and away the most desired mobile device among educators. When asked which devices their districts had adopted or planned to adopt in the next one or two years, 81 percent of educators said the iPad, compared with just 31 percent for a Google Chromebook (and 20 percent for an iPod Touch).

 

That’s not surprising given Apple’s aggressive push in education – last year, it sold 4.5 million iPads to schools and reported one billion downloads for iTunes U. But it gives an indication of just how big a gap Google may have to close. The survey involved 558 educators and was sponsored by News Corp.’s education arm Amplify. It was conducted by Interactive Education Systems Design.

 

Amplify, which sells schools an Android tablet packaged with content for K-12 classrooms, has been a vocal proponent of Google’s platform. The company has argued that Android’s open nature enables more school-specific customization, that it’s easier to securely deploy and manage a large number of Android tablets over the air, and that it’s a better value for budget-constrained schools.

 

According to the report:

Remix Learning - Chicago Summer of Learning + iRemix | iTunes U as a Channel of Open Educational Resources | Scoop.it

Something big is happening in Chicago. Mayor Rahm Emanuel has launched a first of its kind initiative, the Chicago Summer of Learning, encouraging youth to engage in more learning activities throughout the summer. The mayor’s office along with the MacArthur Foundation, Mozilla, the Digital Youth Network, University of Chicago and Hive Chicago has worked with over 100 youth serving organizations in the city to not only increase the learning opportunities but to issue digital badges to capture and recognize the learning taking place.

 

Youth can earn a series of badges that represent the skills and accomplishments from their summer activities. In addition to badging youth for learning in traditional summer programs, there are new opportunities to learn new skills through over a hundred online activities and challenges.
