Viljenka Savli's insight:

You are invited to visit Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/Tap.Swipe.Pinch.Course/ to discuss about tablet courses with your colleagues!

Erasmus+ training courses, funded by the EU, are a good way to get better skills with tablets and apps. Three different kinds of courses - general, music, English - focus on practical didactic use of tablets. Only schools can apply. You can read more about what to know about applying in http://ilpohalonen.wordpress.com.

This School Has Bikes Instead Of Desks--And It Turns Out That's A Better Way To Learn - FastCompany

This School Has Bikes Instead Of Desks--And It Turns Out That's A Better Way To Learn - FastCompany | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it

Some classrooms at the school also have an extra bike in the corner, so kids who can't sit still don't have to. Teachers also use time on the bike as a "reward" that happens to benefit the students.Some classrooms at the school also have an extra bike in the corner, so kids who can't sit still don't have to. Teachers also use time on the bike as a "reward" that happens to benefit the students.Elementary school has always looked a little bit like training for a traditional office job: You show up at 8 or 9, sit at your desk, and fill out paperwork for most of the day. An average third grader might spend as much as six hours sitting in the classroom--only a little less time than the average office worker spends sitting at work. But as more offices realize that sitting all day long is actually pretty terrible for health and productivity, how long will it take schools to catch up?

While some elementary schools no longer have recess, and people like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie argue that school days should be even longer, a few schools are already moving in a different direction. Some are testing out standing desks, and realizing that a little bit of activity can actually improve attention spans. Others, like Ward Elementary in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, are starting to fill classrooms with exercise bikes, so students can work out while they learn.

Viljenka Savli's insight:

I like this, as I believe sitting for 5 and more hours in the classroom (at least for me) doesn't inspire learning. I quote:

"Riding exercise bikes makes reading fun for many kids who get frustrated when they read," says Scott Ertl, who started the program. "They have a way to release that frustration they feel while they ride."

Viljenka Savli's insight:

Gamification is a popular term at the moment and it can be seen in numerous and diverse applications. The simplest definition of gamification is that its approach is to add typical elements of game playing (point scoring, competition with others, rules of play) to other areas of activity.

Nothing to add, only that it's quite tough to achieve good results if you have not got enough knowlede about it.

Resources for Using iPads in Grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 by Monica Burns - Edutopia

Resources for Using iPads in Grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 by Monica Burns - Edutopia | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it

Edutopia is one of my favourite web sites. It has recently run a series written by Monica Burns aka @ClassTechTips featuring Resources for Using iPads across multiple grade levels. Though I've featured them each individually here on iPads in Education I thought it might be useful to post all of the series in one collection.

I liked this statements: ...I would like to suggest an alternative to this: ipedagogy. It seems rather a small change of just one letter, but it does change the focus rather fundamentally.

"The real test of any idea is in the classroom, though students are rarely asked about what they think about their education." So true. They can contribute their ideas by thinking about their own styles of learning if they are somehow involved in the process of improving education.

Wheeler also clarifies the difference between knowledge, wisdom, and critical awareness. As we explore so many new teaching and learning methods, an ironic side-effect is there is no longer a consensus on what “learning” is, a concept this presentation seeks to understand.
Viljenka Savli's insight:

"Social factors are coming to dominate learners’ interaction with text and other media, making a kind of communal constructivism and learning literacy, perhaps the single-most fundamental trend in “future learning.”

How to translate this into our everyday practice?

Teachers all over America are faced with this challenge of keeping students engaged in the classroom when their world outside of school is one of constant engagement and stimulation.

Viljenka Savli's insight:

I liked the statement: "Our students have access to a global audience and don’t have to write just to please one teacher. They can write based on what they see and believe to be true." and this is, I believe,  the fact that we have to bare in mind when preparing for lessons.

What does the future of learning hold? What will classrooms of the future be like? Emerging technologies such as cloud computing, augmented reality (AR) and 3D printing are paving the way for the future of education in ways we may have yet to see. At the very least though, we can extrapolate from what these promising technologies and predict how schools will adopt them in time to come.
