The e-textbook transformation

The e-textbook transformation | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it

A new wave of e-textbooks is giving students more than just words and a few hotlinks on a digital page. Publishers over the last few years have been adding video, interactive maps and gamified quizzes designed to engage students more deeply in their learning.

A transformation which is not a revolution. It will take time and effort.  It's important we give it the space to take its natural course.

The new features will begin rolling out July 8 with the ability for teachers to create and manage previously uploaded lessons directly from the iPad. Apple says the course creation features will let teachers grab content from iWork, iBooks Author or “any of the over 75,000 educational apps available for iPad.” It will also let teachers use the iPad’s camera to include shots and video of real-world items in courses. The course creation feature will be available to educators in all 69 with the materials they create distributed in up 155 countries.

"“If you want to make sure your training is continuously effective, and that you don’t get compliance issues down the road, you really need to be reinforcing your learning on a regular basis. You can push short chunks of learning, little texts, little assessments, little case studies, to people on a spaced basis. These short, sharp, spaced interventions have actually proven much more effective. Mobile is ideal for delivering them.”"

Why You Should Care About M-Learning

Why You Should Care About M-Learning | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it

"Mobile learning is becoming increasingly popular in the workplace. There are a variety of reasons for this, but many have to do with the accessibility of mobile devices, the savings associated with a mobile enabled learning program, and the convenience mobile learning affords the learner. In fact, today if there is a learning management system (or courses) that do not perform on mobile devices, it is borderline in-excusable. In five years time, it will be flat-out archaic."

Oxford University Press Launches e-books for Learning English Through Microsoft’s Office 365

Oxford University Press Launches e-books for Learning English Through Microsoft’s Office 365 | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it
Oxford, Oxfordshire (PRWEB UK) 9 July 2014 -- Oxford University Press has collaborated with Microsoft to make its enhanced e-books solution, Oxford Learner’s Bookshelf, available through Office 365, a SharePoint app. The app transforms Oxford’s coursebooks and Readers for learning English into smart digital books with a balance of interactivity that encourages students to study independently at home, and tools that help teachers to engage students in the classroom.

Ruby Rennie Panter's insight:

A very interesting development from Oxford University Press. If you want to use the books on your iPad, it seems you have to first download the "Oxford Learning Bookshelf" app (free: https://itunes.apple.com/app/oxfordlearnersbookshelf/id617832312) and then within in the app you can get the books. Some books appear to be available only for institutions, and as yet I can't find a way to be able to evaluate them.

Can we read with our ears?

Can we read with our ears? | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it

Many students with weak decoding skills can read: with their ears. As teachers, we can make a strategic choice of differentiating in our lessons in order to allow a poor reader to ‘read with their ears’ in class until the time they can read with their eyes. As long as this occurs alongside additional intervention to address their decoding difficulties, we may be improving his or her life chances by providing this opportunity.

Creating An iPad Workflow For Teachers, Students, And Parents - TeachThought

Creating An iPad Workflow For Teachers, Students, And Parents - TeachThought | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it

"Using tablets in the classroom–whether iPads, Androids, or surging Windows devices–is largely a matter of workflow.

 

If you can forgive a mixed metaphor, the traditional classroom sees the teacher as the both the director and the bottleneck of all productivity. They create assignments, assess proficiency, respond to assessment data, and refine planned instruction in light of constantly changing circumstances.

 

This is challenging in any context, but in 1:1 and mobile learning environments, it’s even more complex. With tablets, every student has both an information portal and a digital printing press. This means they can reach both communities and potential collaborators.

 

The above graphic from @ipadwells addresses this issue with a helpful graphic that visualizes a workflow, while offering up representative apps for each step of the process."

Own-language use in ELT: exploring global practices and attitudes | TeachingEnglish | British Council | BBC | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it

In this research paper Graham Hall and Guy Cook explore teacher attitudes to own-language use in the classroom. They conducted a global survey and interviews with practising teachers.
They found evidence of widespread own-language use within ELT, and suggest that teachers’ attitudes towards own-language use, and their classroom practices, are more complex than usually acknowledged. The findings also suggest that there is a potential gap between mainstream ELT literature and teachers’ practices on the ground.
