The SeeSaw apps students can add voice comments to their pictures to clarify what their pictures document. Students can create folders withing their accounts to organize content from multiple subject areas.

The up and coming language of the future is Mandarin Chinese.  These helpful apps will give you an easy, comfortable way to learn the ancient language which is spoken by a good portion of the world's population.  China is the unspoken driver of the world's economy. A knowledge of Mandarin Chinese will come in handy as more businesses establish closer ties with Chinese manufacturers.  Aloha, Russ.

Teaching Tip: Using Micro-Learning and Micro-Content

Teaching Tip: Using Micro-Learning and Micro-Content | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it
Students can sometimes be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of textbook reading. They are busy with work, family, and outside lives in addition to completing required readings for their courses. One way to enhance traditional textbook readings includes the use of micro-learning and micro-content. Micro-learning is “learning on the go” that can be heard, viewed, read, or contemplated by the student in small and manageable segments of content. Instructors can create or locate micro-content to supplement course content; some of this micro-content can be accessed through a mobile device for convenience to the student. Some examples of micro-content include digital flashcards or short practice quizzes (e.g., through Quizlet), short podcasts (1-5 minutes in length), or short video clips (1-5 minutes in length).

Improving online accessibility for students

Improving online accessibility for students | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it
As schools make recorded lessons available to students online, they may not be making them accessible for students with disabilities.
Ruby Rennie Panter's insight:

This is a huge issue, and one that we have to give serious thought to. It's not yet common practice to have captions for videos, for example, but this should actually be something that we add as a matter of course. There are a lot of suggestions for how to support school pupils on the CALL Scotland wesbite: http://www.callscotland.org.uk/Home/

In creating online courses, we have to give maximum support for all learners, which may involve giving a choice to learners about how they access the materials.

Teaching Tip: Screencasts to Enhance Communication in the Online Classroom

Teaching Tip: Screencasts to Enhance Communication in the Online Classroom | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it
In an online classroom environment, communication between the instructor and students can be greatly enhanced through the incorporation of screencasting. Rather than limiting instruction to simple text through Blackboard announcements or email, instructors can provide audio, visual, and textual information in a quick and easy way through the creation of a screencast. While there are a number of free screencast programs available, Screencast-O-Matic (www.screencast-o-matic.com) is one of the most user-friendly options. With Screencast-O-Matic, the instructor can create a visually appealing instructional video with voiceover in less time that it might require to type out a text response to a student’s inquiry. For a short instructional tutorial on how to create your first screencast, check out this link. Click on “How to Make a Screencast” in the center section.

Computer-delivered or face-to-face: effects of delivery mode on the testing of second language speaking

The use of computers has increased in speaking assessments; however, there are concerns about how the absence of an interlocutor affects performance on speaking tests.

Via Roxane Harrison
Ruby Rennie Panter's insight:

This is an interesting research article, looking at the results obtained when students use either face-to-face or online testing. The conclusions highlight a number of ways in which the research design was limited, but this also points to perhaps doing the same research again with different students, contexts and researchers. It assumes that being able to test by computer-delivered modes is something to aim for; this could also be deconstructed a bit more. However, it opens a number of possibilities for online learning.

Study Shows iPads Could Improve Literacy Skills in Young Children - InformED

Study Shows iPads Could Improve Literacy Skills in Young Children - InformED | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it
A recent study has found that kindergartners who use iPads in school are likely to score higher on literacy tests than those who do not.


The study, which was carried out in Auburn, Maine early last year, looked at 266 kindergartners who had been given free iPads to use in class as part of an experiment. Out of the 266 students, 129 were given lessons using iPads, while the remaining 137 were taught through traditional methods.


The results, which were published on Apple’s unofficial tech blog, TUAW, showed that in addition to better scores in every literacy test, children who were taught through the use of an iPad also showed an increased interest in learning and were more enthusiastic about going to school."

Apple is making it easier for schools to put iPads in classrooms - Engadget

Apple is making it easier for schools to put iPads in classrooms - Engadget | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it
Apple's dreams of putting iPads in classrooms have run into a number of roadblocks, but one of the biggest is simply the amount of work involved -- each slate needs its own account, making it a nightmare if you want to outfit an entire school. That won't be a problem for much longer, however. Both MacRumors and 9to5Mac have discovered that Apple is ditching the requirement for individual IDs on school-supplied iPads as of this fall. Staff will just have to decide which devices get apps or books, letting teachers focus on the actual education instead of getting things running. They'll still have plenty of control, so kids can't load up on games and other distractions unless they get the green light. It's too soon to know if this will lead to more kids taking home tablets instead of textbooks, but there will at least be fewer barriers to making that happen.
