The 3 key ingredients for mobile learning success | eSchool News | eSchool News | Mobilization of Learning | Scoop.it
Why are some mobile learning implementations successful while others struggle? It seems struggling districts are missing at least one of a handful of ingredients that successful districts have in common. When it comes to mobile learning success, leaving out just one key ingredient can ruin an otherwise perfect recipe.

How Technological Advances Will Reshape the Online Student Experience in 10 Years | Mobilization of Learning | Scoop.it

As the world accelerates to 180 mph, those of us working in the higher education industry (the “we” in this posting) can’t be looking at the front of our cars. We need to be peering into the future, into the horizon. 

Ralph Springett's insight:

I can't really disagree with this. Things will change and they will stay the same. Diversity might be a feature of education futures.

The Evolution of The Learning Management System | ReGear Learning

The Evolution of The Learning Management System | ReGear Learning | Mobilization of Learning | Scoop.it

How does a LMS like Moodle deal with the plethora of applications and resources now available? How does it accommodate the situation and learning styles of a diverse group of learners, and the differing approaches of tutors? The reality is that it cannot. And that is okay. 

Ralph Springett's insight:

Ed Tech specialists in higher ed institutions need to be aware of and willing to test new technologies. The difficulty is in managing the sheer number and weeding out the dross.

How Virtualization Makes BYOD Better -- Campus Technology

Educational IT leaders should not be “trying to do the same thing you’ve always done for less money,” but instead “doing something you can’t do any other way,” according to Doug Meade, the director of information technology at York County School Division (VA).
Ralph Springett's insight:

Virtualization in a learner's terms means the right stuff on any device with a browser. This is taking us towards learning management systems that are managed by the learner and tutor rather than the institution.

Interesting but not innovative, creative but not challenging, LinkedIn’s acquisition of Lynda.com changes the traditional learning materials sourcing model.
Ralph Springett's insight:

This type of acquisition makes people in HR think in two ways. Some fear for their role, others see a transfer of responsibility to the learner. HR may be about negotiating learning pathways and ensuring materials are available.

Edtech fads, trends -- and extra-credit myths

Edtech fads, trends -- and extra-credit myths | Mobilization of Learning | Scoop.it

Education technology is a hotbed of activity. And some developments will stay warm, while others, now overheated, will rapidly cool. At the EdTech for Export conference in New Zealand last week, I flipped the questions I’d been asking other industry execs (“Fad, trend, or it’s complicated?“) into advice for the industry itself. 

Ralph Springett's insight:

This is a nice round-up of many of the issues the education sector is dealing with. One point raised by a staff member who attended was :where are the tertiary institutions at this conference?" It seemed the conference was filled with business - many of who could use a partnership with an institution to support their value proposition.
