Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s insight:

This looks like a great app, but the PowerPoint plugin is only available for Windows. It isn't practical for my faculty until there is a Mac plugin.

Too Much Technology and Not Enough Learning?

Too Much Technology and Not Enough Learning? | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

I was reading the book The Smartest Kids in the World by Amanda Ripley and couldn't help wondering what our schools would be like today if we were forced to teach without the technology (including co...

 

 

For example, we have all experienced the "app" mania and are sick of hearing, "Is there an app for that?"

 

Here is a new distraction: why don't we encourage students to use valuable time for "learning" through social media?

 

After all, they already spend hours of their time on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and myriads of other social media sites.

A Must Have App Evaluation Rubric for Teachers

A Must Have App Evaluation Rubric for Teachers | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

How about after you find the apps, do you know how to evaluate their pedagogic implications ? Are they educationally valid ? Do they target skills you want your students to work on ? Are they flexible enough to let students learn in different settings ? Are they student friendly ?

Interesting application, but the content has the same trouble that many of the rubric available on the web: It says nothing:
Ove Christensen's comment, December 9, 2012 6:38 AM
Well I think you should see it as a help for reflection on apps and use of apps. No tools are doing the hard work for you but they help you to remember what to cover.
Jim Lerman's comment, December 9, 2012 5:44 PM
@Cristian...I don't see it the same way. The criteria, in my opinion, do provide a useful framework for judging the efficacy of a web app. The value in the criteria is implicit; if one shares the values inherently stated in the criteria (for example, "authentic practice of targeted skills"), then I think the criteria are indeed helpful. If the values and meaning of the criteria do no speak to you, the reader, then I can see where one could feel they do not say anything. As Ove says, "no tools are doing the hard work for you."
