Photo-sharing app has Maxime's head in the cloud | Digital Speak | Scoop.it

Sharing photos from iPhone to Mac just got easier, thanks to a new cloud-based app created by an exchange student at RMIT University.

Aspiring app developer Maxime de Chalendar, is studying with RMIT’s School of Computer Science and Information Technology while on exchange from French technology university, Epitech, in Bordeaux. He says creating the NuageApp was initially just a bit of fun.

“Developing apps is like a game for me,” he said. “I really do enjoy the process and my aim is to build cool apps that users will enjoy.”

The design of the school was based on what actually happens when we learn, a difference from traditionally built school buildings. It stimulated the children’s curiosity and creativity; it offered reflection and cooperation in the school, in mobile teams and on the web.

Moving Outside the LMS: Matching Web 2.0 Tools to Instructional Purpose | EDUCAUSE.edu

Moving Outside the LMS: Matching Web 2.0 Tools to Instructional Purpose | EDUCAUSE.edu | Digital Speak | Scoop.it

ABSTRACT:

 

What considerations support the decision to either augment or replace an institution’s existing learning management system (LMS) with a cloud-based, Web 2.0 technology tool to support students’ learning? The use of instructional technologies should be evaluated against a backdrop of pedagogical objectives, and students’ selection of tools to support their learning can result in a more collaborative, constructive, and authentic learning experience. Instructors must balance the benefit of introducing new technology tools into the curriculum with the additional load—for instructors (supporting the tool) and students (learning the tool).This paper describes the experiences of an online graduate program in instructional technology at Georgia Southern University (GSU) and the program faculty who have chosen to move beyond the LMS.

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | Digital Speak | Scoop.it
The culmination of my quest for more powerful learning grounded in theory and research came when recently I conducted an experiment in pushing constructionism into the digital age.

 

Constructionism is based on two types of construction. First, it asserts that learning is an active process, in which people actively construct knowledge from their experience in the world. People don’t get ideas; they make them. This aspect of construction comes from the constructivist theory of knowledge development by Jean Piaget. To Piaget’s concept, Papert added another type of construction, arguing that people construct new knowledge with particular effectiveness when they are engaged in constructing personally meaningful products.

Imagine my surprise and joy when I realized that I had arrived at constructionism prior to knowing that such a theory even existed. I believe that thousands of other educators are unknowingly working within the constructionist paradigm as well. Although many within the Maker movement are aware that it has it’s roots in constructionism, the movement is gaining impressive momentum without the majority of Makers realizing that there is a strong theoretical foundation behind their work.

 

After I came to understand this connection between my practices and the supporting theoretical framework I was better able to focus and refine my practice. Even more importantly, I felt more confident and powerful in forging ahead with further experiments in the learning situations I design for my learners.

terrymc's curator insight, October 10, 2013 7:12 AM

I think there is value in a system that captures skills development evidence on a lifelong basis that many providers could work with. Just because the term 'Badges' is used should not allow it to be trivialised. It could fill a valuable gap that enables employers to find graduates who can meet their immediate and long-term needs. I am following this to see how it works out in practice.

 

Dr. David Gentile's curator insight, October 15, 2013 11:40 AM

How might education change if Open-Badges become as valuable as a College or University Degree? What about High School? the future of education is moving towards greater individualization while the "Education Systems" move to greater standardization and making the experience the same for all learners. Doesn't this create a conflict?

All of these sites focus on learning and curation, but could one of them really be the "Pinterest of education"?

 

As one of the fastest-growing social networks, Pinterest's popularity can be attributed to its ease of use and vibrant Pinboards. Recently, a number of similar social curation sites developed specifically for students and teachers have popped up, emulating Pinterest in key ways while focusing on learning. In some cases, they have even made improvements.

 

Here are five such sites that could be contenders for the title "Pinterest of Education"
