The Mobile Industry In Numbers

The Mobile Industry In Numbers | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

This is the H1 2012 edition of the 100 Million Club - the watch list of the top mobile platforms and handset manufacturers.

This Infographic by VisionMobile will give you some insights into the mobile market and help put things into perspective.

Here are some of the insights:
- Smartphone sales penetration continues to accelerate, growing from nearly 30% in Q3 2011 to nearly 40% in Q2 2012
- Nearly 2 out of every 3 smartphones shipped in H1 2012 were Android devices
- Despite low device sales, the Windows platform already has over 100K available apps in Windows Marketplace
- Although Symbian is obsolete, it still has a sizable installed base – larger than bada and Windows Phone combined
- In the handset market, Apple and Samsung account for 63% of revenues and over 98% of the profits, depriving other vendors of oxygen and therefore the ability to invest in handset differentiation and marketing
- In the smartphone market, Apple and Samsung claim more than half of total shipments. Nokia is shipping more Symbian handsets than WP handsets and their smartphone share has fallen to 7%, down from 16% in H2 2011

How 21st Century Thinking Is Just Different - TeachThought | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

If the 20th century model was to measure the accuracy and ownership of information, the 21st century’s model is form and interdependence. The close thinking needed to grasp this is not beyond the reach of a typical middle school student, but it may be beyond their thinking habits.

Personalize Learning: The Expert Learner with Voice and Choice

Personalize Learning: The Expert Learner with Voice and Choice | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

Who is the Expert Learner?
Expert learners take responsibility for their learning. They view learning as something they do for themselves, not something that is done to them or for them. [Source: The Expert Learner]

 

The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) perspective for the Expert Learner is for a learner to be:
> Resourceful and knowledgeable

> Strategic and goal-directed

> Purposeful and motivated

 

Then how can you develop expert learners with voice and choice?


The Three Stages of Personalized Learning Environments provide the process to encourage learner voice. This process can guide the design of personalized learning environments that meets the needs of all learners.  Stage One is teacher-centered and encourages learner voice and some choice. Learner voice is a critical first step. There are ways to do this and this table here describes how the teacher and learner roles change in this stage.

 

When learners have the opportunities to say what they think and be heard by their peers and others, they feel their opinions and perspectives are valued and appreciated. Think about yourself as a learner and what it might feels like if you have a voice in how you learn and even influence decisions about teaching and learning.

The iPad as “Swiss Army Gadget”: Welcome to the new device paradigm | Lean Back 2.0

The iPad as “Swiss Army Gadget”: Welcome to the new device paradigm | Lean Back 2.0 | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

Apple’s launch of the iPad mini, the new 7.9-inch tablet, was designed to grab consumer attention while adding to our stack of gadgets. Many iPad mini owners in the first weeks and months—probably as many as half of them—will be people who already have a tablet. Thus the paradox of the Swiss Army Gadget will reign supreme: We’ll all have more gadgets than before, each of them individually more powerful than all of our collective gadgets from just two or three years ago.

How a creative agency thinks about digital publishing | Lean Back 2.0 | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

The Church of London, a creative agency based in the U.K., is truly on the forefront of understanding how to “do” digital publishing. Instead of focusing on the hottest new technology, they create compelling experiences across analogue and digital platforms. They act as content curators through their websites, apps, in-person events and print magazines, building communities in the process.

The Church of London has worked with Google to produce ThinkQuarterly, the limited edition magazine that brings together some of the world’s leading minds to discuss the issues facing businesses today. They also publish their own in-house movie magazine called Little White Lies. I spoke with editorial director Matt Bochenski and digital director Alex Capes to discuss the beauty of print and the future of digital.

Scaffolding Student Learning: Tips for Getting Started | Faculty Focus

Scaffolding Student Learning: Tips for Getting Started | Faculty Focus | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it
Many of us who teach in higher education do not have a teaching background, nor do we have experience in curriculum development.

We know our content areas and are experts in our fields, but structuring learning experiences for students may or may not be our strong suit. We’ve written a syllabus (or were handed one to use) and have developed some pretty impressive assessments, projects, and papers in order to evaluate our students’ progress through the content.

Sometimes we discover that students either don’t perform well on the learning experiences we’ve designed or they experience a great deal of frustration with what they consider high stakes assignments. Vygotsky’s zone of proximal development (Vygotsky, 1978) proposes that it’s important to determine the area (zone) between what a student can accomplish unaided and what that same student can accomplish with assistance. This provides for consistent structural support, when required (Hogan & Pressley, 1997).

"Metacognition is the process of thinking about your thinking. That may sound convoluted, but it makes sense if you take a step back and think about it for a moment. Rather than just accept that you got something wrong, think about why you got it wrong."
