Danielle M. Villegas's insight:

I like this article as it shows a few things:
1) Alternative teaching/thinking outside the box for a personalize experience.
2) It's a good use of gamification in learning.
3) There is some flipped classroom learning going on as well.
Having a son who is Asperger's and recently asked to go on Minecraft after participating on Roblox for a long time, I'm thinking it might be worth the investment. While he can read very well, and he has good ideas, his writing needs some help. Perhaps this might be the key for him or others who need a differrent way of learning.

2012 has been an amazing year for mobile! This year we have seen technology companies introduce a myriad of mobile devices of all sizes, prices and operating systems. In 2012 Apple announced ...
Danielle M. Villegas's insight:

As we start to wrap up 2012 and push forward towards 2013, RJ Jacquez is on the money--as he always is--on looking at what we need to focus on for the coming year. Much of this applies not only to m-learning, but thinking in terms of content in general as well. Everything will be going mobile before you know it! This is a MUST read.

Danielle M. Villegas's insight:

When I first read this article, I thought, "This is EXCELLENT! This is truly what mobile strategy is all about." Once I saw that @VisualRinse (aka Chad Udell) wrote the article, I realized, "No wonder this was so good!" Chad wrote the book, "Learning Everywhere", last year, and it's great reading. So, he knows what he's talking about! 

 

This article isn't specifically for e-learning/m-learning either. It truly puts into perspective what mobile is truly about and the criteria that companies need to move forward in thinking about creating mobile content.

"Should I just convert my existing content, platforms or applications to mobile? " --No. Probably not. Making eLearning mobile accessible probably doesn't help your target audience - it is not really mLearning.

Good point about noting who the author is. I added that info, since that is what drew me to the article to start with.

Democratic schooling may be the most radical experiment in education of the past 100 years.
Danielle M. Villegas's insight:

I found this thanks to @innovativeedu on Twitter. This sounds a lot like a school my son might thrive in! It's definitely an interesting concept. Also reminds me of the prep school that Auntie Mame sent young Patrick to in "Auntie Mame" and "Mame" respectively. (I think I've seen those movies a few too many times.) It might also sound like a Lord of the Flies scenario if there weren't adults to moderate things at the school.  Anyway, it'll be interesting to see if and how this might affect current educational thinking, and how it's related to the mobile revolution and the flipped classroom discussions.
