Carmenne Kalyaniwala-Thapliyal's insight:

Edmodo is a social learning platform that teachers can use to create an online class. You can use it as a CMS, for distance learning or hybrid learning. And the best part is, you have free access to it as an educator. 

Having used it last year, I love Edmodo. It's great to use in a classroom, great to use outside a classroom, great to share notes with the class, (thus reducing paper wastage), great to keep track of our students' progress, great to connect with our students online, great, simply great!!

Two translation-chat tools that go beyond the normal -

Oddcast: you type in a sentence in your L1 and it translates  it for you and reads it aloud.

Interesting pedagogical implications for an autonomous learner.

terrymc's curator insight, October 10, 2013 7:12 AM

I think there is value in a system that captures skills development evidence on a lifelong basis that many providers could work with. Just because the term 'Badges' is used should not allow it to be trivialised. It could fill a valuable gap that enables employers to find graduates who can meet their immediate and long-term needs. I am following this to see how it works out in practice.

 

Dr. David Gentile's curator insight, October 15, 2013 11:40 AM

How might education change if Open-Badges become as valuable as a College or University Degree? What about High School? the future of education is moving towards greater individualization while the "Education Systems" move to greater standardization and making the experience the same for all learners. Doesn't this create a conflict?
