36 Math Apps For Elementary School Students From edshelf - TeachThought

36 Math Apps For Elementary School Students From edshelf - TeachThought | social enterprise | Scoop.it

"As more classrooms adopt mobile devices such as iPads, teachers and technology integrators are faced with the question: “What apps do I install?”

 

That is quite a hefty question too. There are over 90,000 iOS apps in the Education category of the App Store. Since apps that teachers can use fall into other categories too, the number of choices is well above 100,000. Does your head hurt yet?"

It is not the product/tool that determines if it ought to be added. What/how does it comlement ans supplement waht the teacher is trying to accomplish with each student. So i woud train the teacher in a few of these and leave it up to her.

How an Indian Teacher is Transforming High School Practices Using Technology

How an Indian Teacher is Transforming High School Practices Using Technology | social enterprise | Scoop.it

Technology has helped me tremendously in converting my class from ‘Teacher Driven’ to ‘Student Driven’. Technology tools also provide me real time data about students learning – so I can adjust my teaching accordingly. Moreover, because of technology, I can encourage students to pursue their other areas of interest as well. For example, if a child has to attend any national level camp or any sports event, now can access lessons from my E-classroom or connect with class through video conference .

HEALTH: Three Business Innovations for Better Health

HEALTH: Three Business Innovations for Better Health | social enterprise | Scoop.it

Three innovative business models illustrate these emerging trends: patient-controlled data sharing, leveraging economies of scale to serve low-income patients, and tapping community health workers as door-to-door health providers.

These business models aren’t about new drugs or scientific discoveries. Rather, they creatively engage all stakeholders including patients, community members, health providers, and researchers to bring health services within reach of patients that have traditionally struggled to access care.

Infographic: Why Aren't Students Completing MOOCs?

Infographic: Why Aren't Students Completing MOOCs? | social enterprise | Scoop.it

MOOCs (free online courses that are open to anyone) are more popular than Justin Bieber right now, but why aren't students finishing the courses they signed up for?

ajit jhangiani's insight:

Dont need to, possibly they were just curious about the subject and jumping in was free. To increase completion rates we might have to 'qualify' those that take it. Possibly charge a littel bit, possibly get a sworn statement from them, possibly ask them up front why they are taking it etc. Either way, even if this small % that finish it represents a healthy number as comapred to non MOOC days. MOOC is good.

I was one of the 36% of students who completed the Equine Nutrition course. I can tell you why I was able to... It was because there was excellent support from the lecturers, easy to access video lectures, no hard deadlines until the end of the course, meaning there was much more flexibility for people, like me, who work full time and can't always complete quizzes by 6pm each Monday for example. I could do it in my own time, as long as I stayed within the course duration and I found that some weeks I had much more time and could complete 2 weeks worth of readings & quizzes. 

In contrast, I just attempted to complete an Animal Behaviour course, but unfortunately due to hard deadlines each Monday, I was unable to complete quizzes on time and therefore could not achieve the marks necessary to pass, so I gave up halfway through. I have still completed readings and watched lectures, but with no result as the quizzes did not count after the weekly hard deadlines. Obviously many people had the same issue as me, because out of 24950, only

1428 people completed the course.

I believe course designers need to revisit their courses and ensure they are flexible enough for full time workers to do in their own time.

An integral part of any online learning environment is the social synergy created via communication and discussion.  This is where deep reflection and learning take place.  Are students not feeling connected.  Are they collaborating and creating something new with the knowledge they have gained and sharing it with others?  Learning must me meaningful and applicable.
