Guide: Using the SAMR Model to Guide Learning | Technology and Teaching | Scoop.it

Technology is an immense tool that can transform the way students learn. One of my favourite quotes which demonstrates this comes from Steve Jobs:
 “What a computer is to me is it’s the most remarkable tool that we’ve ever come up with, and it’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.“

Why is MIT ignorning 25 years of reseach into online learning? | Tony Bates | Technology and Teaching | Scoop.it

Tony Bates: "In my previous post, there were two sessions at the LINC 2013 conference that referred specifically to MIT’s own strategies for technology-enabled learning within MIT. These resulted in my asking the following question towards the end of the conference:


Why is MIT ignoring 25 years of research into online learning and 100 years research into how students learn in its design of online courses? "

Web Platform Gives Students an Alternative to the ‘Wall of Text’

Web Platform Gives Students an Alternative to the ‘Wall of Text’ | Technology and Teaching | Scoop.it

"It’s difficult to keep students engaged — and awake — when assigning them readings from long and often dull textbooks. Two researchers wanted to change that.

 

Their creation is zyBooks, a web-based platform that mixes learning activities such as question sets and animations with some written content, largely as a replacement for text. The idea is that professors can use zyBooks instead of traditional textbooks in order to help students engage with the material and perform better."
