5 Things to Try When your iPad Acts Up ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Learning Commons | Library Commons | Faculty Services pages|ideas | Scoop.it

"We all panic when our iPad starts acting up, well no wonder its costly. But sometimes the source of the panic can be dealt with using  some simple tips. Other times prevention is better than cure, in other words, instead of waiting till our iPad gets "cranky" then start looking how to fix it, we can prevent such mishaps with proper usage."

Library For All Kickstarter Seeks To Support Global Literacy

Library For All Kickstarter Seeks To Support Global Literacy | Learning Commons | Library Commons | Faculty Services pages|ideas | Scoop.it

"Mobile access around the world continues to expand, yet access to educational materials is still largely limited in developing countries. What’s the hold up?... Shipping books is costly – and more often than not – the material is outdated, culturally disparate, and/or linguistically incompatible with the end users. In short, the books being sent aren’t beneficial if the kids are unable to understand what they’re reading. Library For All wants to change this reality by launching a digital library platform in Haiti this Fall."

Training teachers through innovative methodologies based in serious games

Training teachers through innovative methodologies based in serious games | Learning Commons | Library Commons | Faculty Services pages|ideas | Scoop.it

When using the SimAULA platform, the teacher in training controls an avatar that interacts with student avatars (controlled automatically by SimAULA) in a virtual classroom, where lessons are taught and a series of situations liable to arise in a face-to-face environment are played out. By way of a specific example, the first version of SimAULA features a simulated biology class in which the teacher avatar has to help student avatars fulfil various learning goals.

15 Mistakes You’re Probably Making With Technology In Learning

15 Mistakes You’re Probably Making With Technology In Learning | Learning Commons | Library Commons | Faculty Services pages|ideas | Scoop.it

"The role of technology in learning isn’t entirely clear–or rather, is subjective. While it clearly is able to provide access to peers, audiences, resources, and data, it also can be awkward, problematic, distracting, performing more strongly as a barrier to understand than anything else.

Why this happens also isn’t clear, but there are some common patterns and missteps to look for while designing or evaluating a learning process."

Jose Jordan's curator insight, June 28, 2013 10:48 AM

OpenTopic es un servicio de curación de noticias que te permite agregar, monitorizar y filtrar cualquier número de fuentes para publicar y compartir tu selección en los sitios que prefieras desde WordPress,  canales de Social Media o boletín electrónico.

 

Dentro de OpenTopic puedes crear uno o más cuadros de mando "Topic". esencialmente muestra las páginas que donde se agregan nuevos contenidos y el contenido entrante de las fuentes que se especifiquen. Puedes saltar de un panel a otro topic con el clic de su ratón.

 

Para curar historias simplemente tienes que seleccionar los que son relevantes para tu público y se les proporciona un módulo de edición para modificar y personalizar el contenido de la historia. En este punto también se puede seleccionar en los (canales) que la historia será publicada y se puede personalizar la historia de manera diferente para cada uno de ellos.

 

Incluso hay una opción que te permite configurar algún tipo de curación automática, dándole la opción de establecer un conjunto de reglas sencillas, que cuando coincide, dará lugar a la publicación de una noticia.

 

OpenTopic te permite conectar a un mayor número de canales posibles, por lo que es fácil enviar de un lugar a tu sitio web, RSS, redes sociales y newsletter.

 

Por último, pero no menos importante, OpenTopic integra un servicio de análisis completo, capaz de informar y dar a conocer los resultados de su trabajo de curación a través de historias y canales de distribución.

 

 

Mi comentario: Excelente herramienta para redes sociales y community managers, así como especialistas de marketing web que necesitan el soporte eficaz para descubrir noticias relevantes sobre un tema y la publicación fácil de diferentes canales de una plataforma centralizada. Fácil de usar.
