Kleinspiration: Tons of Classroom Examples Using Augmented Reality with @Aurasma - A Complete How-To Guide!

Kleinspiration: Tons of Classroom Examples Using Augmented Reality with @Aurasma - A Complete How-To Guide! | On education | Scoop.it

Augmented reality allows someone to add another layer to an existing image.  For example, imagine holding your phone over a poster on the wall as if you were going to take a photo of that poster, and then instantly a video starts playing to offer you additional information about that particular poster.  Pretty cool, right?  The first time it happens, it seems like magic.
After watching the video below, I knew I had to figure this augmented reality thing out.  I was hooked, interested, amazed, and couldn't get enough... neither could my students!

Excellent discussion of the core issue that demands attention.  Higher Education costs exceed the benefits.

Will Stewart's curator insight, July 29, 2013 4:59 AM

"MOOCs are not the future of higher education.....but they do expand the horizon of the visible."

Domitilla Enders's curator insight, July 30, 2013 10:33 PM

"As has been widely discussed, most MOOCs reiterate the ancient form of the lecture, and do not signal much of a leap in pedagogy....the adoption of (new pedagogical models) hinges on accessibility, flexibility, and cost—not quality."

Analyze and Improve Your Writing Skills Online With Slick Write

Analyze and Improve Your Writing Skills Online With Slick Write | On education | Scoop.it

"Even the best writers from among us are prone to the odd mistake. Slick Write is an online tool which helps to correct and even improve your writing on a number of levels.

"Slick Write enables you to evaluate the stylistic features and potential flaws of your work, as well as giving you the ability to identify spelling errors and grammatical mistakes. Interestingly, the tool gives you an insight into the structure of your content, breaking up paragraphs and sentences in a unique, informative way.

"You can analyse the flow of your work, and assess some of the statistics which Slick Write provides for you. When using all the features in unison, it becomes relatively easy to turn an average piece of text, and turn it into a literary masterpiece.

This article is an attempt to address a possible gap in Connectivist thinking, and its expression in cMOOCs. It’s to do with the experience of technology novices, and unconfident learners in cMOOC environments. It comes from a phenomenon, and experience I identified in a recent MOOC I participated in and the experience is best described like this:

Two Wonderful Visual Lists of Educational iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | On education | Scoop.it

"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.

The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."

It’s about time you give some love to Google+, a social media platform set to attract more people not only because of its new dressed up interface, but also by the recent features added.


Google+ is obviously betting big on photos as it launches its ability to “auto awesome” images uploaded to it. Its mobile app came through with its refreshing updates as well. All in all, it has been a very active month for Google+ and the new wave of features is projected to increase its social networking share.

This Will Be The #1 Business Skill Of The Next 5 Years | Linked In

This Will Be The #1 Business Skill Of The Next 5 Years | Linked In | On education | Scoop.it

by Shane Snow

 

"Every few minutes, a new buzzword rips through the business world, skids, gets a few quick books written on it, and ends up in a pile of tired terms next to "synergy." Today, one of the biggest corporate buzzwords is "storytelling." Marketers are obsessed with storytelling, and conference panels on the subject lately have fewer empty seats than a Bieber concert.

 

"Funny thing is, storytelling has been the buzzword off and on since advertising became a thing. It's always coming out of the buzzword pile because, at the end of the day, it's a timeless skill. Stories have been an essential driver of change throughout human history. For good and for ill.

 

"And now more than ever, businesses, workers, and leaders have opportunities to stand out, spread messages, and make change through storytelling.

 

"Good stories surprise us. They have compelling characters. They make us think, make us feel. They stick in our minds and help us remember ideas and concepts in a way that numbers and text on a slide with a bar graph don't."

"In conclusion, our decision to share metadata with a non-commercial license is motivated by our commitment to provide education as a public good while maintaining the ability to create our own sustainability models to do so. And as such, we want to ensure that barriers to access are not erected in the name of open education."

Robert Farrow's curator insight, July 29, 2013 6:02 AM

Lisa Petrides describes how publishers are scraping and repackaging open content and metadata and selling this as a 'service' to consumers.  The freemium model seems to owe a lot to successful app marketing where play is free but to unlock all features of the game a charge is involved.  It is noteworthy that open licensing rarely makes mention of metadata and yet this seems to be important and open to abuse. #spiritofopen #oerrh

Alec Couros' Keynote from FUSION 2013: Identity, Networks & Connected Learning

"Keynote speaker Dr. Alec Couros took us on a journey to examine how we are currently exiting the age of personal computer and entering a new mobile reality. Emerging technologies now provide us with the tools to drastically transform our learning environments, and for the first time in history, learners now have the technical ability to learn anywhere, anytime, and with anyone. Yet, transitioning away from our industrial model of education will not be easy, and leaves us with many questions. What does it mean to be literate? How can social networks and new media be used to support student learning? How do we deal with digital identity & citizenship? This presentation outlined our new technological reality, featured examples of how social networks can transform learning environments, and guided FUSION attendees in examining the potentials and pitfalls of 21 century learning. 

"Couros is a professor of educational technology and media and the Coordinator of Information and Communications Technology at the Faculty of Education, University of Regina. "

Assessing Student Learning - five practical guides | On education | Scoop.it

After a decade of rapid expansion in Australian higher education, student numbers have grown considerably in many courses and subjects, especially at the undergraduate level.

Larger class sizes pose significant teaching challenges, not least in the assessment of student learning. Perhaps most troubling, large classes may limit the amount of feedback provided to students.
