State offers laptops as trade-in for school iPads

State offers laptops as trade-in for school iPads | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it
The Maine Department of Education and Apple are offering Maine schools a “Refresh” swap offer to exchange iPads for laptops at no additional cost.
Lourense Das's insight:
Survey and outcome of usage iPads versus Laptops in schools shows what many already know: Laptops and iPads  both have their own usage. iPad schools or even Steven Jobs schools seem to be a strange name for a school; why not Laptopschool or Smartphoneschool or even better Schooltableschool ;-)

Excellent list to examine and good points to ponder for why it's hot or lukewarm.

Learning beyond Fifteen - OECD Publication

Learning beyond Fifteen - OECD Publication | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

This report focuses on the development of reading proficiency during the transition from adolescence to early adulthood. The span of time between the ages of 15 and 24 is a critical period of development for young people. Once compulsory education is completed, individual decisions about post-secondary education, employment and other life choices have to be made with major consequences for future learning and employment outcomes. A good foundation in reading proficiency facilitates success in specialised education during higher education or during job-related training. Since reading proficiency is not the goal of such specialised or professional learning, reading skills may begin to atrophy. So both learning gains and losses need to be considered as human capital is developed.

Museum Box tools for you to build up an argument or description of an event, person or historical period | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

Welcome to Museum Box,

 

This site provides the tools for you to build up an argument or description of an event, person or historical period by placing items in a virtual box. What items, for example, would you put in a box to describe your life; the life of a Victorian Servant or Roman soldier; or to show that slavery was wrong and unnecessary?

 

You can display anything from a text file to a movie. You can also view and comment on the museum boxes submitted by others.
