The Modern Taxonomy Wheel

The Modern Taxonomy Wheel | The Bridge | Scoop.it

" This Taxonomy wheel was first discovered on the website of Paul Hopkin’s educational consultancy website mmiweb.org.uk That wheel was produced by Sharon Artley and was an adaption of Kathwohl and Anderson’s (2001) adaption of Bloom (1956). The idea to further adapt it for the pedagogy possibilities with mobile devices, in particular the iPad, I have to acknowledge the creative work of Kathy Schrock on her website Bloomin’ Apps."

EasyBib Developer: Student research is incredibly shallow

EasyBib Developer: Student research is incredibly shallow | The Bridge | Scoop.it

"As an entrepreneur, I certainly understand the importance of questioning, whether it be ideas, strategies or failures. More importantly, through our product EasyBib, we have direct insight into the questioning and inquiry skills of students. And it’s scary. Guess what the most cited source is on EasyBib? Wikipedia. Five other top 20 sources are also user-generated websites, including Wiki Answers and Yahoo Voices. This means two things: 1. Students are not questioning the authority of what they find on the internet. They take information at face value. 2. Student research is incredibly shallow. They consistently use sources that are the first few results on a search engine, which are often reference sources. Students are not delving deep into topics, questioning more and more about what they are learning."

What Students Think About Using iPads in School

What Students Think About Using iPads in School | The Bridge | Scoop.it

"All 870 students at Hillview Middle School in Menlo Park, Calif. will soon have school-issued iPads that they can use both at school and at home. The school has slowly rolled out the program over the past three years, trying to work out the kinks before issuing the expensive devices to every student. Before students can take the devices home, they’ll have to take a course to get their “digital driver license,” which includes digital citizenship and learning their way around the device."


Via EDTC@UTB
Peggy Abel Pollitt's insight:

Course to earn "digital drivers license" a must before 1:1 devices taken home.

It's crazy to think how fast our generations have evolved. I remember when reading books was the in thing to do. IT was our only source of learning now students get not only 1 but 2 iPads! I cant believe the schools are trusting children with such valuable things. These costs thousands of dollars!

Tablets vs. Textbooks: Should tablets replace textbooks in K-12 schools?

Tablets vs. Textbooks: Should tablets replace textbooks in K-12 schools? | The Bridge | Scoop.it

"Publishing for the K-12 school market is an $8 billion industry, with three companies - McGraw-Hill, Pearson, and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt - capturing about 85% of this market. Tablets are a $35 billion industry with roughly one in three adults owning a tablet. As tablets have become more prevalent, a new debate has formed over whether K-12 school districts should switch from print textbooks to digital textbooks on tablets."
