This is a great guide for supporting inclusive practice through the various levels of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) course redesign. There are guides with numerous resources for promotional materials, UDL session planners, UDL curricula, UDL course implementation exemplars, and evaluation instruments.

Without Rooting, Education-Specific Tablets Won't Work - The recent release of the Amplify Android tablet, specifically designed for education that will "rival the iPad," raises some interesting questions about the education sector as a marketplace for entrepreneurial innovations and provides an opportunity to explore some alternatives to educators buying into mass-produced educational products.

Barry Joseph: Six Ways to Look at Badging Systems Designed for Learning

Barry Joseph: Six Ways to Look at Badging Systems Designed for Learning | SENSES project: Assembling your digital toolkit | Scoop.it

  For over four years, Global Kids has developed badging systems within, after and outside of schools. We are currently designing a badging system for dozens of civic and cultural institutions within the Hive Learning Networks in New York City and Chicago, as well as throughout our organization. We have had a frontline view of the growing interest which has emerged over the past year in the development of badging systems across a wide range of formal and informal learning environments.

iPad Tip ~ How to Instantly Organize Apps in Alphabetical Order

iPad Tip ~  How to Instantly Organize Apps in Alphabetical Order | SENSES project: Assembling your digital toolkit | Scoop.it

"If you love to keep your apps organized, we have a great tip for you today. By going to Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset Home Screen Layout, your iPad will not only reorganize all stock apps to their default positions, but also organize all non-stock apps in alphabetical order."

Paula Jamieson's curator insight, May 7, 2013 7:05 PM

Maybe this is something that you've always wanted to do? Have your iPad apps organized in alphabetical order. This would be a nightmare for me (a visual learner) as more often than not I don't necessarily know the name of the app but I know what the icon looks like (or the folder that I have put it into). I choose to organize my apps into folders eg ABC's, Word Work, Nurturing Thinking etc. Keep in mind though I use my device predominantly for 'modelling' and to inform others so I have hundreds (did I say hundreds.....my 64gb device is almost full AGAIN).

 

If though, you have individual devices assigned to your classroom that are not jam packed with too many Apps, this may be just the thing for you!

John Pearce's curator insight, May 8, 2013 9:39 PM

I must admit that I prefer to organise my apps under folders according to type, (though there are times that this system also 'lets me down'). This could be a useful strategy for user who have quite a few screens of apps.

Rebecca Penina Simon's comment, May 10, 2013 3:33 PM
I definitely understand - my 32 GB iPad is completely full. I have to keep deleting and reinstalling the apps that I do need to use.

The Professors Behind the MOOC Hype - Technology | Steve Kolowich- The Chronicle of Higher Education

The Professors Behind the MOOC Hype - Technology | Steve Kolowich- The Chronicle of Higher Education | SENSES project: Assembling your digital toolkit | Scoop.it

What is it like to teach 10,000 or more students at once, and does it really work? The largest-ever survey of professors who have taught MOOCs, or massive open online courses, shows that the process is time-consuming, but, according to the instructors, often successful. Nearly half of the professors felt their online courses were as rigorous academically as the versions they taught in the classroom.

 

The survey, conducted by The Chronicle, attempted to reach every professor who has taught a MOOC. The online questionnaire was sent to 184 professors in late February, and 103 of them responded.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, March 18, 2013 5:27 PM

These are data from the people in the trenches. And although they are biased - typically those with good experiences react, those with bad ones reportedly didn't - they still show that there is a good deal of enthusiasm about teaching a MOOC and that many sceptics to online learning became converted. Motives reported ranged from altruism to not wanting to be left behind, but that was to be expected. For a quick impression of the results, check the charts. 

 

Since many of the respondents still were in the midst of teaching their MOOC, we should see the present picture as a snap-shot only. But the good thing is that now we at least have such a snap-shot. The Chronicle is to be applauded for this initiative. (@pbsloep)
