Technology Makes Reading Better. Here's Exactly How. - Te@chThought

Technology Makes Reading Better. Here's Exactly How. - Te@chThought | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

"Reading is just the communication of ideas through alphanumeric symbols. I’m not sure what this represents such hallowed ground for teachers, but it does. Personally I’d be more concerned with reading habits, reasons for reading, the quality of reading materials, etc. Symbols change, forms change, media change. See the gif animations that demonstrate how a student feels when “bae won’t respond to them.” This is your audience, and these are the symbols they gravitate towards.

 

In the apps-for-close-reading post, I said that this “interaction” between reader and text during close reading “doesn’t require technology, but can be changed by it.” So it made sense, I thought, to guess at some ways this happens. Or should be happening, anyway.

 

With more personalization, more access, and more connectivity, we should be creating a generation of close-readers that can’t get enough. So if we’re not, the question is, why isn’t that happening? The pieces are there."

What Happens When Tech-Savvy Teens Help Cyberseniors? - Edudemic | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
In school settings, teachers are older than students. Thus, there is always much discussion around the concept of what’s changed since the teacher was the student’s age, and what that means for education. We look at generational differences between multiple generations. We talk about the future of education: Is it mostly STEM based? Is it …

Wil je het geluid van YouTube video opnemen dan is Peggo een mooie manier om een mp3 bestand te maken. Kopieer  en plak de link in de zoekmachine en de video wordt opgezocht. Met een paar handige instellingen (verwijder stiltes, audio normaliseren) maakt Peggo in een handomdraai een prima mp3.

Julie Cumming-Debrot's curator insight, July 22, 2014 5:25 AM

Looks like a very interesting tool here.  Thanks for sharing Nik.
