Schools are realizing that ebooks are not books at all—they are software and they should be sold the way software is sold.

The discussion of "what's a book" continues. It is more than just format.

Brian S's curator insight, January 13, 1:08 AM

Are ebooks actually more like a website than a printed book? I think they probably are.

A Must See Visual Featuring The 5 Levels of Student Engagement ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Must See Visual Featuring The 5 Levels of Student Engagement ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | MLearning | Scoop.it

"After posting about the "10 ways to get your students engaged" here is another good visual I learned about from Mindshift and which outlines different levels of engagement. As I have already  argued elsewhere here in this blog, getting today's students deeply engaged (the first level of engagement below) in the learning experience taking place in class is not an easy task. Unless students see a direct relevance between  what they are going to learn and how that information will help them them in their actual life , it becomes hard to hook and maintain their attention. Proponents of socio-cultural linguistics emphasize the importance of "context" in learning. Learning materials that are contextualized and tailored to speak to the immediate context of the learners are more likely to get students engaged and hence increase their rate of retention and comprehensibility."

I love this post and its 21st Century implications.  Yes, the old wooded or even newer plastic, solo student desks are becoming a relic of the past.  With collaborative learning environments, mobile learning, project based learning, etc. those neat little rows of desks lined up in single file are a thing of the past.  However, if you're stumped on a practical alternative, I remain a fan of the harkness table that has a long, successful independent school history.  Here is a link if you're not familiar with the harkness table:

But if you come to Monbile2013 you will learn how students can use the camera to support and build vocabulary, create digital portfolios, represent operations in math, and build critical thinking. You will learn a little bit, and then go out in small groups and take some photos When you return to the session room see how to make learning magic with the photos you took. iBooks, compare contrast essays, bilingual stories.

Administrative support is the most important factor of a school's success with any program. School heads, leaders, department heads, business officers, and other decision makers will want to attend this session, discussing the do's and don'ts of implementing mobile devices. Spanning across all aspects involved, topics discussed will include technical requirements and best practices, professional development, BYOD vs school-owned, public relations, parental involvement, student preparedness, and much more.

 

Felix Jacomino

is the Director of Technology at St. Stephen's Episcopal Day School in Coconut Grove, Florida. St. Stephen's is a 1:1 iPad school for grades 1 through 5 and has received much attention in the educational technology community for being one of the very first elementary schools to embark on this mobile learning initiative. Felix's administrative position is two-fold at his school. He is the IT manager and the Educational Technology expert. The combination of his education degree and network engineering certifications allows him to drive both sides of what makes technology integration successful.
