Carmenne K. Thapliyal's insight:

Have Your Teachers Banned Wikipedia? They Must Not Know About This.

Have Your Teachers Banned Wikipedia? They Must Not Know About This. | Tech in teaching | Scoop.it
Wikipedia's most common sources of information are news outlets, books, and academic archives. So if your teacher has banned Wikipedia, just follow Wikipedia's trail of sources to get to the good stuff. Oh, and don't tell them we sent you.

I must admit I fail to understand teachers who ban Wikipedia... why can't they teach students to use it wisely instead of banning it altogether?

Este informe (en inglés) indaga sobre las opiniones de los padres cuyos hijos pertenecen a una generación móvil, desde niños en edad preescolar hasta estudiantes de la escuela secundaria.

¿Cómo perciben los padres el valor de los dispositivos móviles, qué piensan de su uso con objetivos educativos y de recreación, qué opinan de las posibilidades que brindan los móviles? 

En vista del creciente interés en el M-Learning por parte de instituciones educativas, y en la expansión de los modelos de BYOD ("Trae tu propio dispositivo"), los padres pueden llegar a ser aliados clave en este nuevo campo de aprendizaje.

Narrated Slideshow – Screencast Tool Comparison

Narrated Slideshow – Screencast Tool Comparison | Tech in teaching | Scoop.it

A screencast is a digital recording of a computer screen with audio narration. Screencasts can include telestrator (‘John Madden pen’) annotations. Narrated slideshows include audio recordings synchronized to images without hand-drawn annotations.

Screencasts and narrated slideshows can be created with two kinds of tools:

1. Browser-based: Create an account on the website and use a modern web browser like Google Chrome or FireFox to record, save and share it.

2. Client-based: Download and install software on a computing device to record and save.

Theory of Gaming Motivation

the psychology of video games

Via Timo Ilomäki, Bhushan THAPLIYAL
Carmenne K. Thapliyal's insight:

This article puts forth what it calls a 'theory' to 'model the psychological reasons people play video games'. It does make for an interesting read and will probably even serve in giving teachers solid reasons to encourage students' gaming endeavours. This article puts forth however a subjective point of view and is not a result of scientific research.
