The tablet computers segment is growing fast and is now certain to overtake PC sales soon. Naturally a lot of computing, especially at the home, is shifting to tablets. Even at work, some segments of the workforce can do all their tasks on a tablet. For more ‘serious’ ‘heavy duty’ work needs, tablets are merging with desktops and laptops to present completely new form factors. Two of them are shown here. One is a hybrid, which can be used as a laptop or a tablet, trying to give you the best of both.

464 Digital Learning Tools To Sift Through On A Rainy Day ~ TeachThought

464 Digital Learning Tools To Sift Through On A Rainy Day ~ TeachThought | Tech Savvy Teaching | Scoop.it

by Dale Borgeson

 

"The quality and practicality of digital learning tools is a bit subjective.

 

"Where one classroom may do very well with the unpackaged and unfiltered content available on YouTube, Scribd, or podcasts, another teacher may want a practice app that picks one grade level of one content area and has students practice.

 

"Where one teacher may create a classroom full of self-directed learners working through way through project-based learning units, another may want pre-packaged content like that available through MOOCs and iTunesU.

 

"So the following list by Dale Borgeson then–almost maddeningly long at 464 digital learning tools and counting–will make some of you crazy, and some of you smile. If you count yourself among the latter, help improve the list on your next rainy day. How? You can make listly a more effective crowdsourcing tool by “upvoting” apps you’ve used and like, and downvoting those you’ve used and don’t like. In doing so, you help separate the useful apps from the not-so-much."

How Tablets Can Enable Meaningful Connections for Students and Teachers | Tech Savvy Teaching | Scoop.it
In the best learning environments, sharing work doesn’t just mean posting on the Internet, it means building connections with a wider community, so that sharing becomes part of a set of relationships and patterns of exchange.

Nik Peachey's curator insight, August 29, 2013 3:26 AM

Some really good points in this article. "The greatest risk of our investment in tablet computers is that nothing will change. We could find in a few years that, at great expense, we’ve traded paper textbooks for digital textbooks, paper notebooks for digital notebooks, and paper multiple choice tests for digital multiple choice tests. We may find that as educators we simply take these expensive new devices and digitize existing practices."

Agree - if existing practices can do the job well, why change - it all begins with a drawing, is usually my starting point for any good idea…

5 myths of educational innovators: disruption, digital natives, and learning styles | Tech Savvy Teaching | Scoop.it

"It’s almost back to school–a good time to clear out the cobwebs and challenge some conventional wisdom. Hype is seductive, and an enemy of clear thought. Luckily, I’ve recently come across some very well-spoken and thoughtful criticism of long-cherished ideas–even some of my own! Consider it a blast of compressed air for your brain instead of your keyboard."
