Easy iPad Management for Education- At Scale!

Easy iPad Management for Education- At Scale! | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it

iPad deployment includes all of the steps between buying an iPad and beginning to use the device. For an individual’s personal iPad, this is often a very fast and easy process lasting no longer than five minutes: You just open the box, turn it on, download the apps you want on your device, and go. But for a school, or district, with potentially hundreds of iPads–each one requiring a specialized list of apps that need to be purchased before protecting the devices with a case and sending them out to classrooms. As an administrator or teacher, there are a few things you will need to know before you deploy your iPads

I also believe that encouraging students to get 'hands on' with authentic apps has a much more important role in helping them to develop digital literacies which they can use outside of the classroom.

E-learning and Digital Cultures

E-learning and Digital Cultures | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it

This course will explore how digital cultures and learning cultures connect, and what this means for the ways in which we conduct education online. The course is not about how to ‘do’ e-learning; rather, it is an invitation to view online educational practices through a particular lens – that of popular and digital culture

Ruby Rennie Panter's insight:

The next run of this very successful MOOC will start in November. It's free, and lasts for 5 weeks.

Ruby Rennie Panter's insight:

Some useful thoughts about supporting children, from Paul Nisbet: "If someone in Primary 5 is dyspraxic and consequently has slow and illegible handwriting then it’s time to stop causing them grief and time to start helping them to access the curriculum. Forcing a pupil to continue writing by hand when there are easier, faster and more effective methods is not good practice. It risks disengagement, prevents them from accessing educational opportunities and creates low self-esteem. It’s not successful, not confident, not responsible, not effective and not what schools should be doing."

No Longer a Luxury: Digital Literacy Can’t Wait

Digital literacy is about more than just adding technology into the teaching we already do. The following common teaching practices that we have seen in classrooms as researchers and as parents of school-age children do not help develop digital literacy and may even kill students’ motivation to develop their savvy use of technology and the Internet. We must stop these practices. Immediately.


Via Nik Peachey
Ruby Rennie Panter's insight:

It is curious that with the advent of new technology, we seem to be inclined to take backwards steps in learning and teaching; we know that using language for communication is a worthwhile way to learn, but then we regress to using teacher-initiated questions and individual responses when we start using a blog, for example. This article highlights several of these trends, and being aware of these is extremely helpful in being able to avoid them!

Bonnie I agree parents are important today so many seem to be tuned out to the needs of there children, it is a lot more than just material needs, that parents need to provide, and with the prevalence of single parent homes, it is even harder. I feel as much for the parent of these homes as I do for the children it can not be easy wearing all the hats.

Half an Hour: A Few Words on ePortfolios | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it

On the one hand, the portfolio may focus predominately on learning and reflection. Such a portfolio may come to resemble a student's journal or sketchbook.  On the other hand, the portfolio may be used primarily for evaluation and assessment, becoming more a documentation of achievement that a personal workspace. As Barrett notes, the former model focuses on the ePortfolio as process, while the latter contemplates the ePortfolio as product.

Interesting post by Stephen Downes about the different functions of e-portfolios. Downes believes that in the future students will need to manage their online learning records and products, while linking to a range of services such as YouTube and Flickr. He links to an interesting project at University of Mary Washington which encourages students to create their own 'web presence' independently from any service providers.

Case Studies on Integrating ICT into Teacher Education Curriculum in Asia

The dramatic adaptation of ICT has in turn called for education reforms at various levels with a view to creating an enabling educational environment for next generations to effectively function in the digital era. Therefore, teachers’ capacity of integrating ICT into their teaching practices plays a critical role in achieving the goals of the education reform. In this regard, teacher education institutions (TEIs) have made great efforts to develop a new ICT curriculum (or course) or incorporate ICT components into their existing curriculum.

Great ideas for how different systems embed ICT in their teacher training program

TALC library's curator insight, October 29, 2013 8:54 PM

As UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova emphasized, “Technology can be a powerful education multiplier, but we must know how to use it. It is not enough to install technology into classrooms – it must be integrated into learning. Nothing can substitute for a good teacher. It is not technology itself that empowers people – empowerment comes from skills and knowledge.”

 

It is within this context that the two phases of the

Next Generation of Teachers Project (Next Gen) funded by Japan Funds-in-Trust (JFIT), were implemented. The Project was designed to build the institutional capacity of teacher education institutions (TEIs) and Ministries of Education in 15 countries from the Asia-Pacific region in designing and providing training courses on

ICT-pedagogy integration, thereby preparing the next generation of teachers to enhance the process of teaching and learning by utilizing ICT judiciously in the classroom.

 

2 This was done

through 1) engaging Deans and TEI faculty members in planning and creating an ICT-based teacher training environment, 2) guiding TEIs in their curriculum review and development of ICT-related education courses, 3) implementing capacity building workshops for teacher educators on designing, providing and managing teacher training activities on ICT-pedagogy integration, and 4) tapping the TEI network to serve as Resource Centres to ensure that publications (books

and CDs) of UNESCO Bangkok reach the target audience.

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it

These teachers see the internet and digital technologies such as social networking sites, cell phones and texting, generally facilitating teens’ personal expression and creativity, broadening the audience for their written material, and encouraging teens to write more often in more formats than may have been the case in prior generations.  At the same time, they describe the unique challenges of teaching writing in the digital age, including the “creep” of informal style into formal writing assignments and the need to better educate students about issues such as plagiarism and fair use.

Sarah Peterson's comment, October 1, 2013 9:27 AM
This article was very fascinating. It talked about the impact of technology on student writing. I thought this was interesting because there are so many ways now that students can write on the computer. For example our school now has 1:1 laptops so we use technology more often now. I thought it was interesting how they also talked about how the technology can create some bad writing habits though. This article was great and I would encourage students and teachers to read it.
