Ron Hershey's curator insight, December 17, 2013 5:20 AM

While this article is from the UK, the trend for mobile computing in the classroom will spread globally, which only supports the need for companies to implement the means to distribute digital content electronically.

Audrey's curator insight, December 19, 2013 1:51 PM

It is already a reality in certain educational establishments, particularly those where there are 5 or less students in the class.  Education then becomes group facilitated learning.  For example, a student whose first language is Russian or Chinese, studying in the UK may not fully understand an English word.  They are able to type the word into their mobile device.   The result is an explanation of the word . They  share the meaning with the other students. The new word they discover has now expanded all students vocabulary.

 

Here is an example:  What is the meaning of infer?  The moble device may suggest conclude.  The teacher suggests deduce  and assume. Another student may suggest understand.

 

The result:   Students have increased their language, in about two minutes.

Bringing Home That First Mobile Phone: Smart Tools for Parents, Kids

Bringing Home That First Mobile Phone: Smart Tools for Parents, Kids | 21st Century Education and Mobile Learning Tools - Parents | Scoop.it

Each back-to-school season sees a new bunch of kids leave their homes with a first phone in hand. These devices are a big responsibility for both the kids and their parents. Kids need to learn everything from what happens to a phone bill when you stream digital video on the bus ride to and from school, to digital etiquette—when it's inappropriate to use a phone and just how lasting a seemingly fleeting, maybe not-so-nice message can be.

 

 Parents need to set boundaries, rules and talk to their kids about what their own role is. If a parent plans to track the device, or read a kid's messages online, to ensure their safety, those are good things to discuss in advance. But first, there's the matter of data or talk-and-text-only? Feature phone or smartphone? Prepaid or family plan? Below, we've gathered some data, and some advice, to help ease the transition for all parties. "I'm trying to think about it all in the same way I'm going to think about buying [my teenager] a car in the future," said Ken Hyers, a senior analyst at Strategy Analytics and a father of two. "It's a real learning process for me, but it's training for what's to come." Click headline to view the slideshow--

The Week's Top Articles for Parents on Learning & Education | 21st Century Education and Mobile Learning Tools - Parents | Scoop.it

by Ava Arsaga, Parent Cortical Mass

 

You will be happy to hear that no disaster has accompanied the release this week of Diane Ravitch’s second book, Reign of Error.  Perhaps the sentiments contained in it (and in her article this week) are not yet sufficiently milquetoast to secure her general favor, but her outcry is worth the read. ● The common core, which impacts most students this school year, is now a battleground. Two articles, one by E.D. Hirsch Jr., will get you up to speed...

25 Critical Thinking Strategies For The Modern Learner

25 Critical Thinking Strategies For The Modern Learner | 21st Century Education and Mobile Learning Tools - Parents | Scoop.it

"Critical thinking is the engine of learning.

Within this complex process or so many other relevant themes that contribute to learning: creativity, analysis, evaluation, innovation, application, and scores of other verbs from various learning taxonomies.

So the following infographic from Mentoring Minds is immediately relevant to all educators, and students as well. It’s a bit of a mash of Habits of Mind, various 21st century learning frameworks, and the aforementioned learning taxonomies, promoting collaboration, problem-solving, and real-world connections (standard “critical thinking fare” with Habits of Mind-sounding phrases such as “Open-Mindedness.”"

Mercedes Kamijo's curator insight, May 2, 2013 7:25 PM

Este informe (en inglés) indaga sobre las opiniones de los padres cuyos hijos pertenecen a una generación móvil, desde niños en edad preescolar hasta estudiantes de la escuela secundaria.

¿Cómo perciben los padres el valor de los dispositivos móviles, qué piensan de su uso con objetivos educativos y de recreación, qué opinan de las posibilidades que brindan los móviles? 

En vista del creciente interés en el M-Learning por parte de instituciones educativas, y en la expansión de los modelos de BYOD ("Trae tu propio dispositivo"), los padres pueden llegar a ser aliados clave en este nuevo campo de aprendizaje.

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing | 21st Century Education and Mobile Learning Tools - Parents | 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.

Interesting article highlighting confusion between formal and informal writing when using digital tools. On a positive note, students benefit from being able to see each others' work and collaborate online.

Sarah Peterson's comment, October 1, 2013 6:27 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.
