If you were to change the title of this post to 'Is Mobile Learning Inevitable" the slideshow embedded in the post would most likely lead you to say yes. Check out the slideshow to see how the growth of mobile has shifted the playing field and projections for PCs vs Mobile in 2017. Learn about some of the fundamental changes taking place in the marketplace. Think about how this may impact future decisions in your school regarding mobile learning.

here is one side of the mobile learning debate. It is on our agenda over the next 12 months to ensure the university sees and participates in both sides of the debate and makes some informed choices

EdSurge had put together a great guide, Teaching Kids to Code, that provides 14 posts that look at coding from a variety of perspectives and a table that lists 40 tools for learning online programming. The table is divided into sections which include learning coding with:

* apps

* hardware

* visual blocks

* formal coding language

Many of the suggested tools are free.

There are many who suggest that all students should learn to code. If you are interested in helping students learn to code or would like to learn about a variety of resources check out this post.

Using Padlet (f.k.a. WallWisher) across the curriculum

Using Padlet (f.k.a. WallWisher) across the curriculum | Professional Learning Facilitator | Scoop.it

"Padlet has morphed into a full blown online interactive whiteboard, collaboration, presentation, lesson management system with massive possibilities for teaching and learning. Before demonstrating how I have used Padlet in the classroom in ways I couldn’t have in the past, I’ll give you a quick(ish) tutorial in how it works."

Anne Sturgess's insight:

I'm using Padlet in a variety of ways, including gathering teacher and student ideas and for feedback about any shifts in practise related to the work I do as a Facilitator of Professional Learning for teachers.

Why choose to use Padlet? Aside from the fact that is free, it does not require that register. Gleeson recommends that as a teacher you create an account so that all the "walls" you create are in one place.

This post provides detailed instructions on how to create a wall and includes two projects that he has done with his students.

If you have not checked out Padlet I suspect you will after you read this post!

I like this tool. Very useful and it works with iPhones in the classroom!

Can our students do this?

Lyr Lobo's curator insight, June 23, 2013 11:21 AM

There is a magic today with the wealth of tools that support students and their creativity.  Creation and discovery is a powerful combination for learning.

This post provides the infographic that shows 18 myths about education. It also includes short explanations about research on each of the 18 myths (located under the infographic).

The editor also noted that some of these topics are "contentious." If you choose to respond to any of them here or on the original post please use civil language.

These myths make for good classroom conversation.
