Reading is different online than off, experts say

Reading is different online than off, experts say | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

“We can’t turn back,” Wolf said. “We should be simultaneously reading to children from books, giving them print, helping them learn this slower mode, and at the same time steadily increasing their immersion into the technological, digital age. It’s both. We have to ask the question: What do we want to preserve?”

Vaikuttaa lupaavalta vuorovaikutteiselta työkalulta yhteistoiminnalliseen oppimiseen.

Thoreauback's curator insight, April 9, 10:14 AM

WOW! I use freewrites in my face-to-face class because I don't believe a person can write without thinking. Yet, the document students are writing about is always distinct from the free write. In LMS discussion boards the situation is the same.

 

Do you remember how annotations use to appear in the margins of really good books? This is the same. The two-pane interface puts the document right in front of the student and lets them attach their comments to specific paragraphs, pictures or videos.  How perfect is that?

 

I want to try this for a quarter.

Mary Clark's curator insight, April 11, 11:02 AM

While much of this can be done in Google docs, there are several features which can extend the conversation.  Teachers do need to share documents via email.

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

Many educators are doing Education 1.0; talking about doing Education 2.0; when they should be planning and implementing Education 3.0. This post compares the developments of the Internet-Web to those of education. The Internet has become an integral thread of the tapestries of most societies throughout the globe. The web influences people’s way of thinking, doing and being; and people influence the development and content of the web.

Greatest expenses for the State: Medical and Education.

 

That's why anything in these domains that helps explain how the Internet is going to make those enormous savings in the next years (e.g. through "self-medication" diagnosing oneself with the help of online medical expert systems https://www.google.ch/search?q=+medical+expert+systems&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=sb&gfe_rd=cr&ei=K9dQU9W5EO7W8gfd7ICACg or through "self-education" just in the knowledge you need through systems like this here over) is to take in the newest or modern history curriculum.

Nation's first bookless library opens in San Antonio | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it
Bexar County's $2.3 million BiblioTech library looks a lot like an Apple Store - and has drawn interest from as far away as Hong Kong.
R.Conrath, Ed.D.'s insight:

As a novelty, this is interesting,  but a library without any physical books is not one I would want to visit very often. It's not tactile, and it's not aesthetically inviting in the long run.
