In other words, they could read for all the same reasons that we can now use computers. We don’t know how to use computers because we learned it in school, but because we wanted to learn it and we were free to learn it in whatever way worked best for us. It is the saddest of ironies that many people now see the fluidity and effectiveness of this process as a characteristic of computers, rather than what it is, which is a characteristic of human beings.

It is not up to our children to accept a disability label in order to “qualify” for an appropriate learning environment; it is up to adults to provide learning environments which are flexible enough to accommodate the natural variations in our children.

So much wisdom  in this article. Data doesn't have all the answers, and schools are becoming more and more driven by data. Favorite quote: "Because guess what? If there is one thing that the data proves, it’s that our children are all different."  And all children want to learn.

Here’s Why You and Everyone You Know Should Be on Periscope

Here's Why You And Everyone You Know Should Be On Periscope - The Coffeelicious - Medium

Periscope is a platform that allows content creators to gain instant feedback from their audience. You won’t get that on YouTube, Vimeo, or Facebook. You are able to interact with your audience and answer their questions during the broadcast. As you begin to gain a following you’ll start seeing familiar faces and they kind of become like friends.

 

I am a big fan of this new app and I cannot wait to see what’s in store for Periscope. Will it change the journalism industry? Who knows. What I do know is that every content creator, salesman, inventor, techie, artist, musician, and business person should be on this app....

Are you on Periscope yet?  According to this article - you should be!

 

(From the article): Periscope is a very new app and definitely has bugs and kinks to work out, but we can already see the potential for this new platform. Live streaming takes engagement to a whole new level for marketing. People want to follow people, now they can.

Wow! I had no idea Google had so many useful apps for educational use! Not sure I would vote to "ditch that textbook", but I am definately going to have a closer look at these possibilities. Check out this list with 20 concrete ideas for classroom use (documents, presentations, spreadsheet, drawings, forms, sites, moderator and other apps)!

Lena found this for me. I tried checking out Cacoo, a Mind Map tool, but it worked slightly differently from Bubbl.us and my patience was not long enough. It had more advanced layout options and would probably be more interesting in the long run.

10 Free Education Apps for iPad - Getting Smart

10 Free Education Apps for iPad - Getting Smart | Newschool | Scoop.it

"One of the most popular categories of apps on any touch enabled mobile devices is obviously educational apps thanks to the real time, ready-in-hand help students get from them in and outside of their classroom. While there are millions of free educational apps, all of them are not worthy enough for downloading. Secondly, most of the top tier feature rich apps are either not free or offer a much downgraded ‘free’ version that offer a user experience far removed from what they provide in ‘paid’ version. So, finding a handful of free and useful education apps on diverse contents requires some amount of research and that is exactly what we help you to do here. Here below we are introducing 10 free education apps for iPad."

Africa is rising and needs, not the failed models of the developed world but new models that are more suited to the massive demand that already exists for education and training. This is not more universities but more vocational learning. The great opportunity here, is to use the great gifts of the internet, that are already there, for free.

So we thought we’d start an ongoing collection–that is, one that is updated to reflect trends and changes–of the best resources for teaching with the iPad.

This will include resources from all of the best sources, from Apple’s own stuff to TeachThought to edutopia to MindShift to DMLCentral to Jackie Gerstein and more. We can update it, or make it a wiki to crowdsource the process, or you can add suggestions in the comments below. Based on the activity of the comments, and the sharing of the post, we’ll decide how to handle it moving forward.

Great resource for a 1:1 iPad classroom/school. However, this is a great model for any 1:1 setup. You truly need to consider the Teacher/Student/Parent paradigm when deciding on applications that enhance the learning environment. Where there is not workflow vision the people will perish.

It is interesting that we think there are no economic interests at play in the e-learning world. There are and they are significant. It does not mean we don't use various digital technologies, but let us make sure we ask questions and challenge their usages when needed.

Curation as a tool for teaching and learning

What is curation anyway, and how can it be used as a tool for student and teacher learning? This essay will investigate what curation is and the different contexts it is used in. Why is it important; who are the curators, what motivates them and what makes a great curator? What processes and tools are used for curation and what digital literacies are required for successful curation? It will conclude with an investigation into ways teachers can use curation both with and for their students and as a tool for their own professional learning and a brief look at some curation tools.

Edutopia - Redefining the Writing Process with iPads

Edutopia - Redefining the Writing Process with iPads | Newschool | Scoop.it

"Take a moment to think about how you learned to write. What steps did you go through? What was your process?

 

Most of us learned the same core set of skills on paper: organize, draft, edit, revise, turn in. Our teachers then marked up what we had handwritten or typed, and returned our writing. From there, maybe it ended up tacked to a bulletin board, stuck on the refrigerator door, stuffed into a notebook, or tossed in the nearest trash can. Let's call this Writing 1.0."

Touch technologies can bring haptics back to the process of writing - thus still beeing digital. We have seen great advances in how we consume content, but less in how we create it.
