Free or low cost apps

A/Prof Jon Willis's curator insight, June 16, 2014 7:12 PM

Although this is a relatively trivial example, the idea of a Bingo approach to skills building is an interesting one - at UQ we're using a passport as part of engagement processes with Aboriginal school students visiting the university. For every activity they participate in, there is a unique stamp for their passport. The bingo card idea is similar so that across a semester, students fill up their bingo card with activities that build their skills in a range of domains, or across a range of technologies or tools.

Schools that Practice Learning-Literacy

Schools that Practice Learning-Literacy | mobile social networking | Scoop.it

In this environment innovation becomes a commodity, the ability to resourcefully learn becomes the defining foundation of literacy, and the principal goal of formal education is to produce learners.  In this environment pedagogies shift from best teaching practices to best learning practices.

Interesting article on how schools need to and can encourage greater learner autonomy.

Drora Arussy's curator insight, August 8, 2013 1:15 AM

PLNs must become each person's personal reference library - and what better place to teach to use and acquire a library than at school. Best learning practices indeed.

Ms. Corri's curator insight, August 18, 2013 2:26 PM

Great insight! I hoping to be more of a facilitator for my G/T students this year, and this gives me validation that it is the right way to do it.

You're right Kelly, and parents, school and teachers have a key role in digital litteracy !
Ilana Rosansky's comment, July 27, 2013 2:02 PM
SSIGH... and THAT is the problem. How do you know your students are using tech devices for learning as opposed to sending text messages or chatting on facebook...
Minter Dial's comment, July 28, 2013 2:28 AM
Hi @Kelly, @David and @Ilana. It's a major battle. What techniques have you used? I've tried a few things with some success, but it depends on the student profiles...: (a) have a Twitter wall where the interaction can be public ; (b) have no-device moments (c) warn that anything on their screen can be shared in public (if I find it).
