MentorMob: The Magic of the Learning Playlist
A "learning playlist" is a collection of sites organized by a user (teacher) to teach others any given: subject, topic, unit, etc. Best of all these playlists are very easy to create, can be embedded into a site, and be shared w/ others. Also, these playlists can be collaborated on by others to help stimulate and facilitate learning (if allowed by the creator). Plus, MM houses lots of playlists to choose from especially for education.

Teaching the Net Generation: Teachers' perspectives in young Canadians in a wired world

Teaching the Net Generation: Teachers' perspectives in young Canadians in a wired world | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Few professions in our society have been as affected by the advent of digital technologies as teaching: from cell phones in classrooms, to the use of Wikipedia and other online resources in coursework, to the push to integrate ICT across different subject areas, every aspect of teachers' professional lives has changed. And not only their professional lives: the increasing popularity of social media, among both youth and adults, has made it harder than ever for teachers to keep a clear line between their professional and personal lives.

Solve for X: Nicholas Negroponte on learning by themselves

Nicholas Negroponte founded the MIT Media Lab (1980), WiReD Magazine (1990), and One Laptop per Child. Nicholas has recently launched a reading experiment to learn whether poor and remote kids (5-10 years old) can learn to read on their own with a solar powered, Android tablet suitably loaded with immersive and constructionist material.

image of 1910 postcard of idea of schools in 2000...teacher putting books in machine, child 'grinding' goes out to headphones to class
- 100 million children of 1.5 billion do not go to first grade
-Solution is learning to learn by themselves (no teacher is avaialable
-photos of one laptop per child
-as high as 50% OF ONE LAPTOP PER CHILD have taught a parent to read/write
"Education is cheaper than ignorance"
New constructionism
-$10 tablet is doable
4 things I needed...printed, dual mode display (Kindle/iPad), 10 meter drop test, under water
-Bandwidth is most perishable resource on planed. Use now or lose potential
-shakable energy generation for hand phones is doable
-creative thinking and programing are the two disappointments in education. Programming is the best way to think about thinking
-debugging is the best way to learn about learning...Seymore Papart
-students were curious about spelling errors, so they had better test scores (10:30)
-the brain does not read naturally
-but any 5 year old will learn language of any country in 8 months
-2 villages, 30 tablets each village, thousands of books that read themselves...go back and ask if kids can read 8 months later....in field today

Curate Custom Video Learning Courses with Course Hero

Curate Custom Video Learning Courses with Course Hero | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Course Hero is a platform which allows the creation and delivery of online video courses curated from the best existing published content on that topic.

 

There are already ready-made courses to access or you can submit a topic that you would like to video-curate into a course.

 

"You can learn just about anything from YouTube...if you're willing to dig through millions of videos."

 

 

From Techcrunch: "Luckily, Course Hero has done the work for you, offering coherent classes by hosting collections of the best educational YouTube videos and other content.

 

The newly launched courses section of the eduTech startup’s site now has classes in entrepreneurship, business plan development, and programming in a variety of languages.

...

By drawing from YouTube and other openly available education, Course Hero plans to set up courses for anything it, or you, can think of.

...

Each course breaks down into roughly 6 chapters of 6 concept YouTube videos, Justin.tv videos, articles, and more. Unlike Udemy‘s one-teacher-per-class approach, Course Hero courses are compiled from content by many teachers.

 

Rather than put you at the mercy of long-winded professors, Course Hero trims videos and articles down to their most important teachings.

 

Along the way you’ll answer quiz questions, take tests to complete chapters, and face a final exam to finish a course and earn proficiency badges..."
