Paula Correia's curator insight, April 28, 2013 11:56 AM

Este artigo explora em profundidade os fatores que levam ao sucesso dos mecanismos de co-ensino, entre bibliotecários e outros profissionais da informação. Baseando-se em pesquisas colaboração da Fundação Wilder, este estudo constatou que as relações de sucesso no co-ensino são caracterizadas por fatores relacionados  com o meio ambiente, parcerias, processos e estrutura, a comunicação, a finalidade, recursos e considerações externas / longo prazo. Dentro destas sete áreas, são dadas diretrizes para relacionamentos de sucesso no co-ensino para uso por bibliotecários e outros profissionais da informação. "

New App Tells Teachers When Students Are Confused

New App Tells Teachers When Students Are Confused | Library Technology | Scoop.it

"Much has been said about how connected devices, whether in college lecture halls or elementary school classrooms, can distract students. GoSoapBox aims to show how such devices can also help keep class on track. The startup, which is launching Tuesday, makes a web-based app that serves as a constant back-channel to classroom discussion. Students can use it to post questions about the lecture, vote up questions their classmates have already submitted, set their statuses to “confused,” and contribute to polls and questions posted by the teacher."

Mobile Learning 20 Uses

Mobile Learning 20 Uses | Library Technology | Scoop.it

This blog post higlights the Top 20 Uses of Mobile Learning, as well as points to several resources for additional information on mobile learning.

:::
...great guide for mobile learning that Advanced Distance Learning published. It’s entitled the Mobile Learning Handbook. This is a free government publication that I’ll tell you how to get later, and it’s a great guide for getting started with mobile learning. Going through it, I decided to highlight some of the great uses mentioned. They were categorized into 8 areas:

::::

Learning ModulesPerformance SupportAccess to Information, Education and ReferencesCollaborationAssessmentInnovated ApproachesUser-Generated ContentE-Books:::

Dr. Gary Woodill, author of The Mobile Learning Edge, says that there are more than 90 mobile devices that he’s recorded, so when you start thinking about mobile, your thinking needs to take into consideration everything from laptops to iPads to Smartphones. And then there are the company-owned mobile devices as well as personal mobile devices to consider. And of course, they’re not all compatible.

:::
If you want to know more, you can view The Mobil Learning Handbook online at: http://mlhandbook.adlnet.gov or you can download it soon from our ‘Resources’ tab under “Research & White Papers” at www.2Elearning.com or even better, join us at the Enterprise Learning! Summit 2012 to hear both Dr. Gary Woodill and Tom Archibald, plus 3 other of our Learning! 100 Award winners that are on this informative panel: Learning! 100: Mobilizing Learning.
