Yet another superb collection of ideas, tools and apps for education

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, August 26, 7:28 AM

Slides from Nik Peachey concerning iPad use in the context of one-to-one teaching. As well as providing some practical tips there are some useful links to tools that will enable students to practise diverse literacy skills.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, August 27, 12:10 AM

Here is a great presentation filled to the brim with simple ideas for using iPads - from Tellagami (recorded animation) to TodaysMeet (backchannel) to Fotobabble (recording voice over a picture). Some of these are ones we have used at school before, others open up new channels we are yet to explore!

Game of Phones – 7 DOs & DON’Ts in m-learning

Game of Phones – 7 DOs & DON’Ts in m-learning | m-learning  for English Teaching | Scoop.it

Mobile learning is confusing. In theory it sounds great, in practice it’s often mis-attributed hype. Different devices have different patterns of use. The fact that you make ‘responsive’ e-learning simply means that it can be delivered on different devices NOT that it will be used on different devices. M-learning is, therefore, often more fiction than fact.

50 QR code resources for the classroom | ZDNet

50 QR code resources for the classroom | ZDNet | m-learning  for English Teaching | Scoop.it
How can QR codes be used effectively in class?

 

As mobile learning and technology is more readily integrated within classroom settings, QR codes can be used as an interesting method to capture a student’s attention and make lesson material more interactive.

 

Quick response codes, also known as ‘QR’ codes, are simple, scannable images that are a form of barcode. By scanning a QR code image through a mobile device, information can be accessed including text, links, bookmarks and email addresses.

 

In the classroom, QR codes can be used in a variety of ways — from conducting treasure hunts to creating modern CVs. Below is a number of articles, tutorials and lesson plans designed to help educators.

Konstantinos Kalemis's comment, June 4, 2012 4:50 AM
One of the most effective ways the QR code could be used is in mail order catalogs. In the catalog it would have information on each of the products, pictures and then a QR code with a call to action to scan it. When scanned, the code would pull up a promotional video that explains the product further and shows examples of the product being used. When the video finishes, it will prompt the user to directly add the item to their shopping cart. Additionally, because the catalog could have the QR code link to a URL of their choice, they can track all scans and conversions to measure effectiveness and make necessary changes.
Other ways to use QR Codes:
• to assign homework assignments
• to Link to Important Forms
• to Give Feedback
• for Polls, Surveys, etc
In adult education, QR Codes may be used for examinations, certification and many other applications.
Because of their unusual design, the QR codes would certainly draw the viewers eye, the problem is, these codes are meant to be viewed (primarily but not exclusively) on a mobile phone. If they have a PDF to fill out, it would be much easier to download it to a computer than a mobile phone.

Mobile Usage Among The Youth | m-learning  for English Teaching | Scoop.it

Nielsen's new report, Mobile Youth Around the World reveals that most young people with mobile phones got to choose their own device.

 

There are lots of other interesting bits in the report; well worth the time to download and read if you’re into the design of mobile learning. Such research assumes more significance if the design of mobile learning is to be meaningful for a younger learner audience.

Everyone Is Talking Mobile Learning. Brilliant!

Everyone Is Talking Mobile Learning. Brilliant! | m-learning  for English Teaching | Scoop.it

Last week we were at Learning Technologies 2012 in London braving the winter chill here in London. Just as we expected this is probably the best show for the sort of products and services we offer. I met many prospects (which is always a real need), some existing clients/partners (always good to catch up), and some casual visitors; and a couple of walk-ins at the show to get the ‘flavor’ of the show. All the interactions were interesting and we learnt something from each one of them. We left the show more educated and very tired - after being constantly on our feet for two days.

Digital citizenship is a key component of the technology and media literacy. We do not teach our students how to be good citizens in the real physical world but how they can be good netizens of the online world as well.Today's learning requires alot of use of technology and most imprtant of all, our students are using technology on a daily basis- text messaging, blogging, Facebooking, Twittering, watching videos, gaming and networking. They live in two different but interconnected worlds. What they do online can have a severe repercussions on their real life if not properly instructed on digital safety issues and this is where digital citizenship fits in

Teaching Innovation Is About More Than iPads in the Classroom

Teaching Innovation Is About More Than iPads in the Classroom | m-learning  for English Teaching | Scoop.it

Technology, by itself, isn't curative. Human agency shapes the path.In light of this dynamic, two critical questions need to be asked and provisionally answered when integrating technology into education. The first question, while obvious at first glance, isn't always fully articulated: "What are the educational goals of technology integration?"

The second question is equally important and often more elusive: "Do the current systems and processes support the integrative and innovative goals?"
