Why tablets are failing miserably in higher education

Why tablets are failing miserably in higher education | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

“ While Apple and Google are fighting a FUD war for the hearts and minds of K-12 campuses, there's one area of education that neither has been able to penetrate with success: higher ed. Specifically, I'm referring to the conglomerate of colleges and universities across the US (and likely abroad).”

Creation of audiovisual presentations as a tool to develop key competences | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

This article describes a proposal to develop key competences through project-based learning. The project’s objective is the creation of a digital video. The study was carried out with students in their final two years of non-mandatory secondary-school, in the subject of “Physics and Chemistry”. The students created didactic documentary videos describing different aspects of kinematics. The planning of the project focused on to involve the students in all steps of the process, in order to be able to evaluate the competences developed during each part of the project.

Khan Academy's Revamped iPad App Is Learner Intuitive

Khan Academy's Revamped iPad App Is Learner Intuitive | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Although Khan Academy has had an iPad app for some time, a new suite of upgrades to that app may revolutionize education yet again. In addition to allowing access to the thousands of videos that form the academy’s core curriculum, the app includes a set of exercises and guided order of video viewing to educate and assess individual students. If you want to learn about the causes of World War I, for example, the app leads you through the appropriate videos in the best order for you to understand them, and runs you through exercises to make sure you’ve got the key points. You can also ask it for an age or grade appropriate course on a general topic — math, life sciences or health for example — and it will choose the topic for you.

Using Technology To Redefine The Way Schools & Communities Connect

Using Technology To Redefine The Way Schools & Communities Connect | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Technology, so far, hasn’t healed the disconnect between schools and communities, but that could be because we’re selling it short for what it can do—which might start with not seeing its potential fully. Today, popular uses are sharing grades, missing work, test dates, snow days, and basic school announcements. This isn’t nearly good enough.

Terry Heick discusses "How To Connect Schools And Communities Using Technology", including:

Solicit mentoring relationships

Connecting students to the artists, architects, engineers, makers, writers, farmers, cooks, and other “roles” for the purpose of mentoring and apprenticeship is one way to begin to repair the disconnect between schools and communities.

Connect with community leaders

This one is closely related to the idea of “mentoring” in the sense that it connects students with people outside of the classroom from their community. But rather than for the purpose of mentoring, it could be less involved—topical but authentic communication between those leading the community, and those living in it, and social media is the perfect way to make it happen.

Most of us turn to the internet when we are looking for resources to use for a presentation, report or article. The internet holds the key to so many robust resources.

Yet how many of these resources can you legally use for free? How many of them can you adapt?

College education gap between rich and poor continues to grow in the US

College education gap between rich and poor continues to grow in the US | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

A new study shows that for kids who are growing up poor, a bachelor's degree is getting further out of reach.

Conducted by two higher-education research institutes and released this week, the study shows that the college-education gap between rich and poor has multiplied dramatically over the past four decades to perhaps the widest it's been in national history.

The rate of affluent people completing college has exploded, while the rate of low-income people getting diplomas stayed relatively flat, according to the study. In 1970, 40% of affluent students finished college by 24, compared with about 6% of low-income students. In 2013, according to the study, more than three-quarters of upper-income students had finished college by age 24, but less than 10% of poor students did by the same age.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 9, 6:35 PM

First, a college education should not be the ultimate goal for all students. There are many college grads unable to find work in the US and Canada.

 

Second, the gap has been persistent and one wonders why. It begins in our K-12 Schools.

Helping the Poor in Education: The Power of a Simple Nudge

Helping the Poor in Education: The Power of a Simple Nudge | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The enormous financial inequalities in the United States are mirrored in education participation and completion rates: A child born into a poor family has only a 9 percent chance of getting a college degree, but the odds are 54 percent for a child in a high-income family. Whilst it may be difficult to change the financial inequalities, it is possible to provide some educational assistance to the disadvantaged by providing motivational “nudges” at appropriate times.
