Coding is the New Literacy - Think Playgrounds, Not Playpens - FRACTUS LEARNING

Coding is the New Literacy - Think Playgrounds, Not Playpens - FRACTUS LEARNING | Keeping up with Ed Tech | Scoop.it
There is no denying that coding is snowballing in importance across schools all around the world. Whether it’s Scratch, Programming Games or the Hour of Code, an understanding of software and the ability to code is fast becoming an essential skill for all 21st century learners.

At a recent TEDx event in Jackson Mississippi, Professor Marina Bers discussed her research into the design and study of innovative learning technologies to promote children’s positive development. How does this research manifest and present itself in the real world? Well programming robots of course!

Future Of EdTech 101: Automation, Curation And Gamification

Future Of EdTech 101: Automation, Curation And Gamification | Keeping up with Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"Education is one of the fastest progressing industries. Today, research, materials and communication can be shared instantly and globally. However, information technology is hardly at its full potential, particularly in education. As a college senior set to graduate in 2015 and asked to write an essay about the future of higher education, here is what I see when I look into the crystal ball. By the year 2050 higher education will be transformed by three trends: automation, curation, and gamification."

elearning at eCampus ULg's curator insight, January 26, 10:10 AM

Quelques pistes, j'aime beaucoup l'idée de gamification mais elle doit être entendue comme de l'apprentissage par le jeu et sortir du stéréotype du jeu électronique ... Le jeu est motivant par le défi qu'il propose, c'est ce levier d'apprentissage qui ouvre la porte à de belles perspectives en lien avec le "Problem Based Learning" ou le "Case Based Learning"

What's The Best Online Presentation Creation Tool? | Keeping up with Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Creating a mesmerizing presentation is more than stitching slides together, sure, but a good presentation tool certainly helps keep your audience's attention. Some of the best are on the web and easy to use, too, and don't require you download a pricey app to use. This week, we want to know which ones you think are the best.

Using ThingLink to Support STEAM

Using ThingLink to Support STEAM | Keeping up with Ed Tech | Scoop.it

STEAM is an approach to teaching that supports arts integration across the curriculum. In a STEAM classroom students construct and demonstrate understanding about core subject areas through an art form. Teachers design learning experiences that encourage students to engage in a creative process that connects an art form to one or more core subject areas, such as Science, Engineering, Technology or Math to meet objectives in all areas.
