The 60-Second Guide To Smartphones In Education [INFOGRAPHIC]

The 60-Second Guide To Smartphones In Education [INFOGRAPHIC] | SRHS Information Literacy | Scoop.it

Are smartphones really that big a deal in education? Let’s examine the facts:

- Ownership of smartphones continues to rise at a brisk pace

- Smartphone owners download between 50 and 80 apps each

- Students studying using smartphones are three times more likely to track their progress

- Flashcards and self-quizzes are popular: more than 70% of students use this type of app

- Most students use the built-in apps a lot. The calculator, notepad, and camera all play critical roles.

Manage Google Docs with an Assignment Tracker | SRHS Information Literacy | Scoop.it

Teachers are experiencing the frustration of cluttered In Boxes taken over by individual messages from students sharing their assignments. Fortunately, I have found an awesome idea from John Miller @162 that utilizes a Google Form as an Assignment Tracker. The idea is innovative, efficient and simple. Here's how John's invention works:

Scholr.ly Search Engine Takes An Innovative Approach To Research | Edudemic

Scholr.ly Search Engine Takes An Innovative Approach To Research | Edudemic | SRHS Information Literacy | Scoop.it

That’s where Scholar.ly comes in. It’s expected to open in beta later this summer but we have a sneak preview already. Scholar.ly is being designed by and for researchers. It’s basically Google Scholar but a different format. The biggest difference from a standard Google-based search is that Scholr.ly’s results are instantly sorted into two columns: publications and authors. The publications page shows titles, authors and other meta information, as well as excerpts that are easy to skim. The right-side column shows authors. Each author can have a profile that includes career information, affiliations, publication listings, common co-authors, top publishing venues, and impact metrics.
