How to Get Augmented Reality into the Classroom

How to Get Augmented Reality into the Classroom | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

One of the most common misconceptions about Augmented Reality is that it belongs in the future, when in fact it is all around us – right here, right now. It is also incredibly user-friendly whilst utilising cutting edge technology, making it ideal for incorporating into learning environments.

Time Travel Simulation Resolves “Grandfather Paradox” - Masters and PhDs

Time Travel Simulation Resolves “Grandfather Paradox” - Masters and PhDs | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

What would happen to you if you went back in time and killed your grandfather? A model using photons reveals that quantum mechanics can solve the quandary—and even foil quantum cryptography.

The source of time travel speculation lies in the fact that our best physical theories seem to contain no prohibitions on traveling backward through time. The feat should be possible based on Einstein’s theory of general relativity, which describes gravity as the warping of spacetime by energy and matter. An extremely powerful gravitational field, such as that produced by a spinning black hole, could in principle profoundly warp the fabric of existence so that spacetime bends back on itself. This would create a “closed timelike curve,” or CTC, a loop that could be traversed to travel back in time.

Should schools ban homework?

Should schools ban homework? | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The College de Saint-Ambroise, an elementary school in Quebec, has banned homework for kids in grade one through six for a year. The Canadian media exploded with blogs, tweets and radio talk shows questioning the decision or applauding the action.

This kind of intense debate about homework has a long history. For example, in the 1920s, some physicians were concerned about the impact of homework on children's health.

They argued that children need between six to seven hours a day of fresh air and sunshine. In the 1930s, editor Edward Bok of the Ladies Home Journal also called for an end to the practice. For the rest of the 20th century, different research reports were used to support or dismiss the practice, yet it persists despite the lack of clarity on its educational value.

What is clear is that parents and kids don't live in the world of academic research; they live in the real world where there are piles of homework on the kitchen table.

Teaching Is Not a Business - Masters and PhDs

Teaching Is Not a Business - Masters and PhDs | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Today’s education reformers believe that schools are broken and that business can supply the remedy. Some place their faith in the idea of competition. Others embrace disruptive innovation, mainly through online learning. Both camps share the belief that the solution resides in the impersonal, whether it’s the invisible hand of the market or the transformative power of technology.

Neither strategy has lived up to its hype, and with good reason. It’s impossible to improve education by doing an end run around inherently complicated and messy human relationships. All youngsters need to believe that they have a stake in the future, a goal worth striving for, if they’re going to make it in school. They need a champion, someone who believes in them, and that’s where teachers enter the picture. The most effective approaches foster bonds of caring between teachers and their students.

What counts for academic productivity in research universities? - Masters and PhDs | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Research universities focus mainly on research accomplishment: this is their core mission and what is key to the rankings and the achievement of high global status. But measuring research productivity is problematical. The global rankings count journals that are indexed in main global indices – such as the Science Citation Index, Web of Science or Scopus, or their equivalents for other disciplines. These indices list only a small number of journals and tend to favour publications in English – the global scientific language.

The Education Revolution Is Here Right Now - Don't Miss It - Masters and PhDs | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Innovative organizations who can leverage new approaches to learning, while meeting consumer needs in a lower cost manner, will do well. And most incumbent institutions have the ability to meet this soon-to-be future state successfully, if they couple this ability with institutional will. The “will” part of it is probably the biggest challenge. On the other hand we may look back seven to ten years from now and ask where did all the colleges go? I guess one way to think about this is that for sure there will be winners and losers.

Mobile testing for Ebola gains renewed urgency as outbreak grows - About Health Degrees

Mobile testing for Ebola gains renewed urgency as outbreak grows - About Health Degrees | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

One small company, PositiveID, of Delray Beach, Fla., has developed a prototype device for testing for Ebola and other viruses and bio-threats, relying largely upon millions in federal dollars to fund its research. Developed in a lab in Pleasanton, Calif., the device looks like a mini-clamshell laptop. When closed, it is somewhat smaller in width and length than the iPad Mini, but much thicker — about 2 in. It weighs about 2 lbs.

Called the Firefly DX, it can be used to test a sample of a person’s blood or other bodily fluid for the presence of Ebola and other diseases at an airport screening area or a remote field location within 10 to 15 minutes.

When some students graduate from college, they cross their fingers and hope and pray that they’ll get a job offer. But wouldn’t it be better to have employers come looking for you?

So how can you get employers salivating? Your demand in the marketplace may depend on your major, according to a 2014 survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). The Association polled its employer members to determine employment trends and the survey results reveal that some degrees are much more popular among employers than others.

Different modes of digital learning object use in school settings - Masters and PhDs | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The aim of the studies reported in this paper is to gain classroom based empirical evidence on the learning effectiveness of learning objects used in two types of study settings: Collaborative and individual.

The pretest and post test measures and observation data showed that though the learning objects were primarily developed for individual use, they may also help students working with peers.

The study provided evidence that using the learning objects in different modes is possible and designing and developing learning objects for the use of multiple modes is crucial.

Online learning: the UK’s scepticism is holding it back

Online learning: the UK’s scepticism is holding it back | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

There’s no doubting the history of online education among UK institutions. The work of the Open University makes it a stand-out, and in the breadth of its offering, an international leader. Many traditional universities have offered online options for years, but their offerings have remained limited and positioned outside of the mainstream as the alternative to the real thing.

The UK (meaning providers, learners and employers) needs to embrace online learning quickly if its higher education sector isn’t to be left behind on the international stage. Overcoming scepticism will, of course, require a clear basis of regulation and maintenance of standards for all online programmes and a clear sense of differentiation for students between the accredited and non-accredited. In the US that has meant all online providers needing to gain accreditation through one of the regional accreditation bodies or the Distance Education and Training Council in order to be taken seriously.

End of Google Authorship

End of Google Authorship | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The idea behind Google Authorship seemed extremely promising when it patented Agent Rank/Author Rank back in 2007. The idea was to influence page rankings based on the reputation of its authors by using digital signatures. So, trusted agents would receive a higher score than someone who hadn’t yet earned their stripes.

This was just an idea until June 2011. During this time Google began to encourage webmasters to use the rel=”author” and rel=”me” tags for pieces of content that an author wrote. When Google+ was unveiled, the entire Google Authorship plan came together is there was a way to connect content with its authors.

Within the first year, the experiment seemed promising.Searchmetrics found that 17% of SERPs were showing the rel=author tag, which was higher than expected. Unfortunately, Authorship didn’t take off as expected.

Stone Temple Consulting discovered in a recent study that 70% of authors made no effort in connecting their content with authorship. In addition to that staggering figure, out of 150 pages sampled, 50 did not have author pages, while ¾ gave no attribution to an author. Furthermore, there were issues with confusing authors and containing no links to Google+ profiles.

Inveneo teamed up with United Methodist Communications (UMCom) and Steve Bryant from the General Board of Discipleship to begin building a power and financially sustainable Computer Center serving three institutions of higher learning in Kamina. Currently, Kamina Methodist University (KMU) is unable to offer students in its ICT program a functioning computer lab, a loss which results in the inability to do hands-on work to support their theoretical learnings. Once completed, however, the Computer Center will be used by KMU students, the Health Sciences College, the Teachers College, and local community members as a place to gather knowledge and build skills. It will serve 1,000 people!

Vanessa Camilleri's curator insight, August 21, 11:22 AM

People always seem to be complaining about this... our children are distracted... who wants to read when they can play games, but in effect children tend to copy their parents. By instilling a passion for reading from a young age we can try to balance out the claim that the young children do not like books or reading. One story a day... just like the apple, helps develop the creativity in children. It doesn't hurt by having the children making up their own stories and writing them together with their parents!

I so wish I could say: Daddy, thank you so much for the stories. | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"My father added a whole dimension to my childhood, one that I took for granted.

 

When my sister and I were little, we had an almost daily ritual with my father: drawing stories.

 

He would sit us on his lap and get out his clipboard, a piece of paper and his black click pen. He’d divide the paper into four parts, and draw as he told a story. Sometimes he drew old favorites and we knew what would be in each of the four drawings. Sometimes he let us decide what he should say and draw. But most of the time, we had no idea what would come next.

 

And that was really fun."
