Ruby Rennie Panter's insight:

This blog post has some useful ideas about how to change your mindset when considering using technology in the classroom. As the SAMR model shows, it's not just a case of doing the same thing but using technology instead of paper. The potential is a lot greater than that.

How To Make Online Courses a ‘Place’ for Learning

How To Make Online Courses a ‘Place’ for Learning | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it
I recently listened to a lecture ‘The importance of place’ from a Great Courses series on Cultural and Human Geography.  The professor discussed the process of ‘place-making’ that occurs when humans interact with, and modify a physical space to make it their own. The result is a distinctive place with a unique culture shaped by…

Sugata Mitra: schools should scrap the 3Rs

Sugata Mitra: schools should scrap the 3Rs | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it

“Reading, writing and arithmetic should be deemphasised and replaced with comprehending, communicating and computing. That’s the world we live in today,” Prof Mitra said at the education technology conference Bett in east London today.

Would like to listen to him in live again.

Jesus Sandoval's curator insight, February 6, 5:26 AM

For many reasons I agree with what Sugata Mitra says about replacing certain education topics such as reading, writing and arithmetic with other beneficial ones such as comprehending, communicating and computing. In today’s modernized society skills such as communication and understanding technology off the palm of one’s hand is very beneficial when looking for a well paid job. Once a student enters high school these skills (communicating and computing) should be strengthened. It will only benefit the students down the road. What is the point of teaching students how to write with correct punctuation and proper grammar when they can simply turn on  grammar check when typing on a computer? The point is that machines and devices have been developed to do one’s thinking for them. The best option is to teach students how to work with these devices and machines (computing) and not much writing and reading anymore. The world is developing way too quickly to be focused on perfecting one’s writing and reading skills.

10 creative alternatives to research reports and papers | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it
Research reports and papers have been around a long time. They haven't evolved much. Here are 10 ways to make them more relevant.
Ruby Rennie Panter's insight:

There are some interesting ideas here, and some that would be worth developing as possible academic assignment structures. WE already ask students to create posters - why not interactive online posters? We ask students to do presentations - why not a video showing parts of their research or reports? It's about time we updated our ideas of what research and academia is all about!

Children are not inspired to learn by repeating the same processes over and over. Children develop an interest in a variety of subjects because of interest. This interest can lead to a better understanding. Of a topic of interest when they are asked to research or are inspired to research to learn more about something. By allowing a child to delve into a topic allows for greater understanding in the sense of accomplishment.
