I can see how this tool is good not only for giving online courses, but also for collaborating online. Your thesis advisor sits half around the world, but you want to go through a talk you are giving the next morning? No problem with presentation.io

Cell Phones in the Classroom: What’s Your Policy? | Faculty Focus

Are we old fuddy-duddies when we ask (demand) students to put away their cell phones in the classroom or clinical areas? Students tell me this is just the way it is now, but I disagree. I teach courses in health sciences.

Teachers, Students, Digital Games: What’s the Right Mix? | Teaching and Learning in HE | Scoop.it

While experts like Gary Stager, founder of the Constructing Modern Knowledge Summer Institute, recommend that computers be used to add “deep and meaningful experiences” to teachers’ lessons, much of what the 91percent of teachers with access to computers are doing may be just the opposite.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 27, 2013 11:37 PM

The role of mobile technology in producing content is significant: i have ditched my laptop in favour of the iPad, it’s my primary means of production, travelling with me everywhere and my favourite place to write. I record and edit my video learning bites on my iPhone and use mind mapping software to capture new ideas, as well as Apps like Paper and Adobe Ideas to create models. There’s nothing new in talking about mobile technolgoy as a means of production, but let’s just think about the social nature of the technology, the way that it follows me everywhere. The very nature of the devices impacts on what i write, the fact that i woke up this morning and checked Facebook in bed, took the iPad to Starbucks to draw the diagram over coffee and now am writing on the train.

MOOCs are transforming higher education and providing fodder for scientific research

MOOCs are transforming higher education and providing fodder for scientific research | Teaching and Learning in HE | Scoop.it

"When campus president Wallace Loh walked into Juan Uriagereka's office last August, he got right to the point. “We need courses for this thing — yesterday!” Uriagereka, associate provost for faculty affairs at the University of Maryland in College Park, knew exactly what his boss meant. Campus administrators around the world had been buzzing for months about massive open online courses, or MOOCs: Internet-based teaching programmes designed to handle thousands of students simultaneously, in part using the tactics of social-networking websites."

How to Handle Student Excuses | Faculty Focus

“Grandpa’s heart exploded, but he’s fine now,” one student reported the morning after missing a scheduled exam.

 

Grandpa’s heart exploded, but he’s fine now,” one student reported the morning after missing a scheduled exam. “I caught dyslexia from another student last semester,” responded another when his teacher asked him about all the spelling mistakes in his paper. And then there was the pet rabbit that swallowed a needle on the day of the big group presentation. Excuses like these are so preposterous that they can’t help but make us laugh, but dealing with them is no laughing matter.
