Teachers Don't Need Convincing, They Need Training to Use Ed Tech

Teachers Don't Need Convincing, They Need Training to Use Ed Tech | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

States and school districts should stop trying to convince teachers to employ educational technology and start helping them overcome barriers to using it well, say a husband-and-wife research team.

"We don't give teachers enough credit," said Loredana Werth, an assistant professor at Idaho's Northwest Nazarene University."Most understand the benefits and impact of technology. What folks want is training and access."

That conclusion is based on findings from a survey of 200 Idaho teachers about how they use and perceive more than 30 different kinds of tech in the classroom. Loredana and Eric Werth presented their as-yet unpublished findings at the International Society for Technology in Education's 2013 conference here.

Tablets help Hong Kong students learn

Tablets help Hong Kong students learn | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

A middle school is blazing a trail in e-learning to create a more dynamic teaching environment, write Linda Yeung and Richard James Havis.

It's morning assembly, and Form One students at Pui Ching Middle School, have their iPads ready. It's the same story in their English and Chinese classes. As they listen to the news, read poems or watch other media on the screens in front of them, the students are preparing to put forward their thoughts via projector linked to their devices.

They are a pioneering group in a school already at the forefront of e-learning. From this autumn, the use of iPads will be rolled out to Form Two and Form Four classes. The school already has its own online learning system with various teaching materials and activities, and its students chat with one another on Facebook or the online course management system Moodle.

Smile! Hackers Can Silently Access Your Webcam Right Through The Browser (Again)

Smile! Hackers Can Silently Access Your Webcam Right Through The Browser (Again) | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

You know those people who put tape over their laptop's webcam to keep digital peeping toms at bay? They're not crazy.

A new proof of concept is making the rounds today that demonstrates how a hacker can snap pics off your webcam, right through the browser, with no consent required.

We tested the proof of concept on the latest build of Chrome for Mac, and it pulled from our webcam without issue or any visible prompt. Others have found the exploit to work on IE10, but it seems to be patched on the most recent releases of Safari and Firefox. When it works, the only evidence that the camera was ever accessed is a near instant and oh-so-easy-to-miss blink of the LED indicator.

Gust MEES's curator insight, June 15, 2013 8:03 AM

 

Fortunately, getting a solid layer of protection against such exploits moving forward is pretty straightforward. For one, you can tape up that webcam — it’s a bit tinfoil hat, sure, but it’s better than having a photo of your bad bits blasted out to the Internet on some shady-ass Tumblr. Second, consider using Firefox* with something like NoScript, disabling it only for trusted sites.

MOOCs, Hype, and the Precarious State of Higher Ed: Futurist Bryan Alexander | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Does it continue to make sense to go to college when the sticker price of a college education is soaring, the amount of debt college students are taking on – even for the non-elite universities and what were formerly affordable public universities – is severely constraining their choices post-graduation, and job prospects for new graduates are dismal?

How To Make Sure Professional Development Is Not An Oxymoron - Edudemic

How To Make Sure Professional Development Is Not An Oxymoron - Edudemic | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Let’s face it, most people do not look forward to Professional Development (PD) Days in their school district due to the fact that most of these are created with someone else deciding what is most important for the learners.

From my standpoint, we could change PD dramatically for the better if we focused our professional learning efforts on just two qualities: choice and learning with others.
