How to use fancy gestures on the iPad (and why you should) | mLearning in ELT | Scoop.it
Apple added 4- and 5-finger gestures last October, but the features don't seem commonly used. After two weeks with my new iPad, however, I'm suddenly taking advantage of these gestures and they make the iPad experience even better.

Making Progress

Making Progress | mLearning in ELT | Scoop.it
There is a growing recognition on the part of teachers, education support professionals, school administrators, and prominent educational experts that emerging digital technologies are here to stay and, when used properly, can offer substantial educational benefits. These benefits, however, are not without some risks. Recent abuses of social media have prompted a number of state legislatures and boards of education to consider enacting legislation or policies to respond to concerns about the use of digital media to harass, bully, or make inappropriate sexual contact with children. Before steps are taken to impose limits on the use of social media and mobile technologies in schools, policymakers and educators need to consider the consequences for learning that such restrictions would produce. In this document, we argue that such action should carefully consider the advantages of social media for learning and that these guidelines for responsible use bring media into mentored environments where they can be safely explored and shared.
