50 Things To Do On The iPad

50 Things To Do On The iPad | On education | Scoop.it

While the iPad is not the savior for learning–or even mobile learning for that matter, if you use one for five minutes it’s easy to see that it is an amazing piece of hardware.

We’ve talked about how to use them in a PBL environment. And how to record ideas with them. And even separated ideas for using the iPad in the classroom by complexity. (Or, see ten of our top iPad posts here.)

Easier Ways to Protect Email From Unwanted Prying Eyes ~ NY Times

Easier Ways to Protect Email From Unwanted Prying Eyes ~ NY Times | On education | Scoop.it

by Molly Wood

 

"Security experts say email is a lot more like a postcard than a letter inside an envelope, and almost anyone can read it while the note is in transit.

 

"One promising new encryption tool is Virtru, a feature that can be added to Chrome and Firefox browsers or installed on the Mail program on the Mac and for Outlook on Windows. One of Virtru’s big selling points is that it works with web-mail services like Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail. There are also apps for iOS and Android."

But these students are actually taking part in a new experiment in educational innovation. The NewsHour’s April Brown reports on one school’s approach to keep students engaged all day.

David Wiley: The Open Education Infrastructure, and Why We Must Build It

"Despite thoughtful disagreement about the term “infrastructure” from people I greatly respect, I continue to find the term extraordinarily useful in my own thinking about how we improve education. As interest in competency-based education continues to grow, we have an incredible opportunity to expand and to open the core pieces of the education infrastructure."

Jan Neumann: Some Basic Thoughts About OER Policy | On education | Scoop.it

"National OER policies determine the framework within which other OER actors can develop. By doing so they form a mighty leverage to shape the OER ecosystem of a country. Though we are still at the beginning, initial achievements are promising. Approaches like the OER policy registry by Creative Commons provide the possibilities to follow and speed up the development. Supportive will also be, that openness and sharing are among the core values of the OER movement. If we manage to obtain this also for the field of policy by sharing our experiences and lessons learned, fast progression should be possible."

description by EdSurge

 

"Tim Holt, Director of Instructional Technology for El Paso ISD,fires back in the iPad vs. Chromebook debate by responding to Joshua Kim's pro-Chromebook piece, point by point. "What I think we have here is someone stuck in the idea that a device has to have a keyboard built in in order to be an effective learning tool. It does not," Holt writes. "Since tablets are not laptops, the efforts to make them ‘pseudo laptops' often fail."

How Can We Connect Teachers to Connected Learning? ~ Digital Is

How Can We Connect Teachers to Connected Learning? ~ Digital Is | On education | Scoop.it

by David Quinn


"I realized that if teachers were to get on board, I’d have to make it concrete. I had another attempt to share Connected Learning with Rhode Island teachers at the Highlander Institute’s Blended Learning Conference. I reached out to Christina Cantrill for permission to use an example from Teaching in the Connected Learning Classroom and she was kind enough to oblige. The first example was Larissa Pahomov’s 2Fer project where students wrote two-page position papers that were peer reviewed in Google Docs and then shared publicly on a website."

The Tech Detectives: Students Take Ownership of Technology ~ Edutopia

The Tech Detectives: Students Take Ownership of Technology ~ Edutopia | On education | Scoop.it

by Brad Currie

 

"Picture it: a middle school in Anytown, U.S.A. has a teacher that is struggling to figure out why her SmartBoard is acting up. Typically she would submit a "tech request" and wait an extended period of time for it to be fixed. One issue, though -- she needs the device now for a very important math lesson. She suddenly remembers that a group of students called the "Tech Detectives" can come to the rescue and fix the problem. Within minutes, several students arrive, play around with a few wires and buttons, and the malfunction is addressed in no time.

 

Students to the Rescue

 

"The Tech Detectives Club was created at Black River Middle School in Chester, New Jersey as a way for students to take ownership of the technology they utilize during their various learning experiences. Based on feedback from various school stakeholders who have a passion for technology, it was deemed necessary to start a club that arms students with a strong technological skill set. On a regular basis, students create tutorials, assist teachers, learn about technology trends, collaboratively problem solve issues, and gain exposure to career readiness. The excitement generated from this program is truly remarkable. Below, you will find guidance on how to start your very own Tech Detectives Club."

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, July 3, 2:57 PM

Personalized learning is built on the idea that each learner is unique and learns in different ways. This is called variability in learning. To support all learners’ unique needs and preferences, learning environments have to be flexible. It takes a process to transform learning environments and change learner and teacher roles.

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, July 3, 9:00 PM

University learners need to be similarly considered.  There is very little ubiquity of prior experience with such diverse intakes - Plan to shift from pedagogy to andragogy to heutagogy.  Student needs shift from early engagement where pedagogy (teacher direction) is the norm, to andragogy where the role of the teacher shifts to facilitating student engagement in the processes of learning, to heutagogy where students define and organise their own learning requirements.
