Connected learning is so much more than using a computer, smartphone or tablet...

 

===> it's how we use those tools.  <===

 

The old argument that schools should not use it as a way to communicate with families because many families don't have access to computers is an argument that needs to go away.

Augmented Calendars - Engage Their Minds

Augmented Calendars - Engage Their Minds | TechLib | Scoop.it
I made a “Mystery Calendar” for October.  I found a list of historical people and events from October here, and chose 4 of them.  Then, I used iMovie to create short videos that gave clues about each one.  Because I have a Mac at home, I had a bit of trouble finding a good calendar template for the iWorks suite, but I finally landed on a good template for Numbers here.

"One of the most exciting new features available with iOS7 is the ability to AirDrop files from one iPad to another, or even from one iPad to many - instantly. While sharing options such as email, Google Drive, Chirp, and Bump already exist, AirDrop makes the process easier and faster because the sharing can take place with or without a Wi-Fi connection and from any app that supports the exporting of files with the traditional iPad action or sharing button (arrow pointing up from a small box on ios7).

Many were outraged that some students are missing out on valuable learning resources because of their families’ socio-economic status, while others worried that bringing mobile devices into the classroom – any classroom – invites chaos."
