Fundamental Considerations For Designing M-Learning Solutions (Part 1) by @MayraAixaVillar #astd

Fundamental Considerations For Designing M-Learning Solutions (Part 1) by @MayraAixaVillar #astd | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it

Last week, I described mobile devices as multitasking tools that enable users to seamlessly collaborate and communicate with others, to consume and create content, and to research and manage information.These learning activities help the new generation of connected learners make sense of the world around them as they navigate and apply knowledge on the go. As mobile devices provide a personal interactive experience with content in a new and appropriate context of use, it is important to consider the following matters when designing anytime, anywhere learning experiences.

Aligning the Maker Movement with Education » Online Universities

Aligning the Maker Movement with Education » Online Universities | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it

In May of 2012 a "fabrication workshop and design incubator" called TechShop was opened in Detroit in partnership with Ford Global Technologies. The facility charges a membership fee to allow average people access to high end industrial machines where they can invent their own products. Ford itself encourages the use of the machines by their employees to design innovations for Ford vehicles. This workshop and several others are part of a DIY-inspired "Maker Movement" that has people engaged in fixing, tinkering, and producing things outside of the mainstream, established production channels.


DIY education is a growing movement. It's not just the idea of homeschooling, but rather breaking from the standardizations that currently stand in order to better serve personal needs and objectives going forward. e-Learning and m-Learning are going to be--if they aren't already--a big part of this movement as time progresses.

Let's Build a Goddamn Tesla Museum

Let's Build a Goddamn Tesla Museum | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it
We're trying to raise money to buy back Nikola Tesla's old laboratory, known as the Wardenclyffe Tower, and eventually turn it into a museum.

 

Nikola Tesla was one of the premier inventors and scientists in the last century, and responsible for many things that came out of Thomas Edison's labs,but he did not get credit until well after his death. This is an opportunity to help support STEM initiatives--get people excited about sciences and all the accomplishments this man achieved in his lifetime. You can read more about it here: http://theoatmeal.com/blog/tesla_museum. I urge you to contribute as much as you can--even if it's just $1.00-- to this worthy cause! I'm going to, and I hope it happens so that I can take my son there one day.
