I knew about the OCR in photos. I did not know about the OCR .pdf function. Awesome!

Mobile Learning is about self-actuated personalization.
As learning practices and technology tools change, mobile learning itself will continue to evolve. For 2013, the focus is on a variety of challenges, from how learners access content to how the idea of a “curriculum” is defined.
Max Gissler stellte beispielsweise die E-Learning-Strategie der Schweizerischen Post vor, und Lutz Goertz vom MMB-Institut für Medien und Kompetenzforschung aus Essen präsentierte die Trendstudie MMB Learning Delphi ...

"One of the biggest problems many people have with Khan Academy and YouTube Edu is simply the format. It’s not the fault of Khan or YouTube … it’s just that the passive video format is just that. It’s passive. Khan and others are introducing more interactive technology that acts as an added level of learning to the lessons but no one has nailed it quite yet.
"A San Francisco-based startup called Net Power & Light Inc. wants to change that. And they’re working with one of the most popular (in terms of YouTube views at least) Harvard professors to show off what they can do. Net and Professor Michael Sandel have partnered to offer a more interactive way to learn using the Apple iPad.
"Net’s software is called ‘Spin‘ which essentially turns passive video watching into interactive group learning. It’s like project-based learning but with the entire planet instead of just your classroom.
"Right now, Spin lets you remix and interact with content from Harvard, Stanford, TED, and the National Geographic Channel.
"“Teachers felt web-based learning wasn’t giving them the full experience,” Tara Lemmey, Net Power & Light’s co-founder and chief executive officer, said in an interview. “Education shouldn’t live by itself. It’s a world of together.”
“Mit 96 Prozent besitzen so gut wie alle Jugendlichen ein eigenes Handy. Bereits bei den jüngsten Befragten kann man von einer Vollversorgung mit Mobilfunkgeräten ausgehen. Ein Teil dieser Geräte sind sogenannte Smartphones, wie das iPhone oder Samsung Galaxy, die sich zunehmend unter Jugendlichen etablieren: Jeder Vierte kann ein solches Handy mit erweiterten Funktionen und Internetzugang sein Eigen nennen...
“The concept is something like World of Warcraft, where everyone in the world is playing the same game,” Hanke said. Players are on one of two teams: “The Enlightened,” who embrace the power, or “The Resistance,” who fight the power. Anyone can play from anywhere in the world, though in more densely played areas there will be more local competition for resources.
Outdoor physical activity is a big component of this, though driving between locations isn’t banned. “You’re like a rat in a maze on the phone,” Hanke said. Then, back at your computer, you can review the larger area and gameplay.
