Apple's Tablet Vision 1990's - YouTube

This movie was included in CDs demonstrating Apple's vision of technology Integration into education in 1995. Notice the idea of a tablet with video conferencing capabilities. Does the promise for education still hold true today?

The desktop computers in the movie look like 5260 or 5500 model that put parts of the movie in 1996 or 1997.

The two teachers sharing a file demonstrates the early idea of airdrop.

According to Towards Maturity’s In-focus report titled Mobile Learning in the Workplace, 2013 was the year when mLearning became the norm rather than the exception; with seven out of ten businesses now adopting mobile learning solutions. This rapid increase in adoption has also led to some pitfalls which L&D departments may face while initiating mobile learning in their organizations. Here’s a presentation depicting the 5 most common pitfalls to be avoided.

Completely FREE Management App for 1:1 iPad Classrooms - Class Tech Tips

Completely FREE Management App for 1:1 iPad Classrooms - Class Tech Tips | mlearn | Scoop.it

"Otus is a terrific management tool for teachers in one-to-one classrooms who want an easy way to keep track of student work, provide opportunities for collaboration, and so much more.  I’ve had the opportunity to share Otus with my readers and webinar attendees and want to highlight one of the fantastic aspects of this powerful app – Otus is completely FREE for students and teachers.

 

With Otus teachers can keep track of participation, send notes to students, and take attendance.  They can also recognize student behavior by awarding points and group students.  The bookshelf feature lets teachers organize folders of resources to share with students – this can be done for whole class, individual, or create groups of students.  Otus gives teachers the power to create, assign, and grade assessments.  It is also simple to share these assessments with colleagues who may wish to use the same one or modify it for their students."

How apps are shaping delivery of education | mlearn | Scoop.it

From helping kids develop artistic skills to tutorials on complicated numerical, apps are changing the way children are learning today, says Shantanu Prakash . 

Over the last decade, as information technology has revolutionized education, it has also spawned numerous inventive sub-cultures of software and hardware development that go to support education delivery. One of the most promising features of this eco-system has been educational apps.

How educators around the world are implementing mLearning (and what you can learn from them)

How educators around the world are implementing mLearning (and what you can learn from them) | mlearn | Scoop.it

In less than a decade, mobile technology has spread to the furthest corners of the planet. Of the estimated 7 billion people on Earth, 6 billion now have access to a working mobile phone. Africa, which had a mobile penetration rate of just 5% in the 1990s, is now the second largest and fastest growing mobile phone market in the world, with a penetration rate of over 60% and climbing.The phones themselves are not advanced by developed nations’ standards. Most people in developing countries have what are called “feature phones,” which are less sophisticated and powerful than smartphones and have fewer features. But they do have numeric keypads, and can access the internet on a tiny screen–which, by the way, is not a tiny screen to them but a window of vast opportunity.Other types of mobile technology have spread to these corners too. In areas where schools can’t afford to receive traditional educational materials, mobile devices have moved in. One library in Ghana that has no books on its shelves, but now has an e-reader, giving the students of its village access to hundreds of books that could never be physically sent to the library.Still, UNESCO reports that 250 million students worldwide cannot read, write, or count, even after four years of school. Close to 775 million adults– 64% of whom are women–still lack reading and writing skills, with the lowest rates in Sub-Saharan Africa and South and West Asia.How schools respond to the growth of mobile devices will affect generations of students and their readiness for college and the workforce. It will also impact how well teachers, administrators, and staff do their jobs. We must all do our best to ensure that accessibility and quality remain top priorities as technology develops.

G-learning: Google devices at school in the post-tablet era

G-learning: Google devices at school in the post-tablet era | mlearn | Scoop.it

andreas hofer's curator insight, July 16, 6:17 PM
I rarely blog about hardware, as the Google ecosystem is mostly about software and I strongly favour a BYOD (Bring your own device) approach when it comes to devices in the classroom. Copy a portable version of the Chrome browser on a flash drive and you will feel at home wherever you go (at least that’s what I do in the classrooms I teach in) if you use the Google ecosystem extensively. However, many schools urgently need to overhaul their IT equipment and financial resources are often rather scarce.


A few months ago a student of mine asked me if she should buy a Chromebook as she knew that I was using one myself at school as my primary working device. I advised her against buying one as she - like pretty much most of my students - wasn't using Google Drive and wanted a device to use Microsoft Office applications with, which was rather cumbersome on a chromebook at that time.


Fast forward a few months and  not only can you natively edit Office documents now but many other features have been added to Google devices which make them ideal for use at school. By “Google devices” I mean Chromebooks, Chromeboxes, Chromecast dongles and Nexus tablets with no particular preference for a specific hardware manufacturer. I’ve been “dogfooding” all of these devices to myself for a couple of years now using a Chromebook and a Nexus 7 at school as well as a Chromebox as my primary computer (unless I need to use multimedia applications), a Nexus 7 and a Chromecast at home. My school(s) uses almost exclusively Windows PCs.


Here are some ideas where I can see Google devices meaningfully (and economically) deployed at schools:
