These are simply the core facts...

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 27, 10:20 AM

These are really not new, but they are always worth repeating. What is new is perhaps the intensity and frequency with which they happen. The cross-cultural awareness is certainly the case. What works for me culturally does not work for someone half-way around the world. In fact, it might not work here. Educators  need to be aware of that cross-cultural awareness.

Our little test pilots, the first generation from birth to iPod, iPad ... Early signals indicate the positive impact ebooks are having on the literacy of our little digital natives. Interesting the positives are attributed to the looking, listening and touching that occurs simultaneously with ebooks.

Em síntese, as competências a desenvolver (qualquer que seja o nível de ensino em diferentes patamares, diria eu), relacionam-se com a literacia da informação (com e sem recurso as tecnologias mais recentes), ou seja, pesquisa, seleção e tratamento de informação (para a transformar em conhecimento - diferente de copy/paste) e comunicação (oral e escrita) de ideias, de si próprio e do que faz (de forma rigorosa e atraente), tendo em conta as normas de privacidade e ética (que em contextos online são bastas vezes descuidadas) .

Nothing can replace the physical presence of a teacher. But with so much technology available these days, some teachers and professors are choosing a different way to structure their classes by flipping them.


Barbara Macfarlan's curator insight, September 6, 2013 3:28 PM
There's always something new to learn for all of us and these tools can make this easier for teachers and students alike. Flipping the classroom is not new anymore so it could be time for the students to start generating the content and learning for the class. These iPad apps can make it easier to empower students to take an active roll in their learning. Create a class YouTube channel where they can upload and publish their presentations so that the content they create can be shared and reviewed by their peers.

Mine was not drawn on a napkin, but on Notability. And, to answer that snarky Johannesburg based iPad trainer who cannot believe I can do what I do using the iPad, yes I did create it myself!

I find it interesting that we want to prepare good citizens. Preparing good people with strong character leads to good citizens. I will take the latter over the former, because I will get the former. Plato had a theory of educating for good citizens. It was very narrow. Is that what we want?

10 Tips For A Smarter iPad-Based Classroom - TeachThought | Teaching 2012 and Beyond | Scoop.it

"When I first raised my hand to pilot my middle school’s first 1:1 classroom, I knew it was going to be bumpy.  

 

After all, I am a practitioner of content, not a tech guru. But the way I see it, I work to not only help guide students to unveil the subject matter (consume), I also work to be up on the most current ways to communicate that content (create). Hence, my willingness to jump out of my wheelhouse, the shallow end of the ed tech pool, and into the deep end of total tech immersion.

 

The only way to learn was to jump in and jump in early, so I raised my hand."
