Worst practice in ICT use in education

Worst practice in ICT use in education | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it
In business and in international development circles, much is made about the potential for 'learning from best practice'. Considerations of the use of educational technologies offer no exception to this impulse. That said, 'best practice' in the education sector is often a rather elusive concept (at best! some informed observers would say it is actually dangerous). The term 'good practice' may be more useful, for in many (if not most) cases and places, learning from and adapting 'good' practices

Ruby Rennie Panter's insight:

It's always a bit disconcerting to read a research report that has been subsidised by a company who will benefit from positive claims. However, it is still interesting to read, and to see what aspects of learning they have focussed on to evaluate the benefits.

"Mobile Learning Technology has opened up a whole gamut of options to extend the learning blend. No longer do employees have to rely solely on the usual means of training – be it ILT or e-learning. So much so, that even in organizations which have not yet adopted mobile learning, employees are using their smartphones to informally pull whatever information they can at the time of immediate need. Be it preparing for an interview or gathering the relevant statistics on the way to a meeting, mobiles have become tools of providing ubiquitous support, especially for accessing bite-sized information."

This is a fairly basic list of ideas, but could be useful for an initial "checklist". For most of them, there will be associated research and when using "tips" it's always good to be critical and search for other points of view. “Be sure to build in tasks that generate peer-to-peer interaction and sharing; those where participants create something their peers can use and benefit from tend to be most successful" - good point, which has several underlying theoretical principles to back it up.
