Now the time has come for NEW INNOVATION: "First:  Simplicity of Set UP. The user could take the computer out of the box, plug it in, and be ready to go." Steve Jobs

The design of the product comes first, the development of the hardware had to follow to fit the design, never the other way around. Design goes into the very inner workings of a device.

Top 6 Apps for Flipping Your Classroom

Top 6 Apps for Flipping Your Classroom | SENSES project: Assembling your digital toolkit | Scoop.it

Teachers all over the world are flipping their classrooms. Instead of doing homework and projects at home, students watch lectures and videos. When they get to class they engage students with activities and tests designed to test what students have learned. While flipping your classroom may sound like a good idea, it requires having a way to present information to students at home. These top 6 apps for flipping your classroom will give you the tools you need to turn your classroom upside down.

The Future of Learning Is All About Curation and Search

Robin Good's curator insight, June 4, 2013 1:46 PM



If you are curious to know what I think about curation and search and their future, check out this 3-minute audio excerpt from a much longer interview about curating your experience I had with Joel Zasflosky of ValueofSimple.

In it I highlight how inadequate is to expect Google results to fulfill the need that many people have to learn and deepen their knowledge about a topic they are not familiar with.

Google set of very specific, highly filtered and ranked text results represent many, often relevant, individual bites of a larger puzzle that is never shown.

You are provided tons of individual trees in place of the "forest" you have asked about.

That is the greatest limitation for Google… when it comes the need, not to find a specific book, product, event or person, but for learning, understanding, for seeing the bigger picture, then the individual bites, ranked by Google authority or Pagerank, just don't serve our need.

This is why, just like we can't feed our appetites only with Big Macs, when it comes to learning about a topic we're not familiar with, we will increasingly rely on curated search engines, trusted guides and portals who can provide us with a much better and more useful roadmap into learning than Google can.

If this happens in the early years of learning it will not be such an issue at the tertiary level where plagiarism is still a real problem!

How To Combat Student Plagiarism - Edudemic

How To Combat Student Plagiarism - Edudemic | SENSES project: Assembling your digital toolkit | Scoop.it

As teachers, when we assign a research project, we often focus on the end product: the research essay, presentation, etc. However, students (especially young students) do not automatically know how to conduct meaningful research. Our modern students are used to Googling answers. They have grown accustomed to information being readily available. However, as academics, we know that research isn’t a  fast process. It’s slow and deliberate. As a teacher, I need to intentionally slow my students down during this exercise. I do this by breaking down a larger project into more manageable chunks and focusing on the process.

Some good suggestions here, but I still feel it desn't quite go far enough. I think we also need assignments that require and inspire personal reflection and a degree more critical thinking.

aisha ertugrul's comment, May 22, 2013 3:17 AM
Yes, which is what is meant by "plagiarism proof" assignments. I would also add that it is essential to practice paraphrasing and do it effectively by using all four skills.
