Mirroring360 by Splashtop: A Fantastic BYOD Tool @ClassTechTips | Thinking beyond your space | Scoop.it
Mirroring360 now offers new features – one of which is called Mirroring Assist.

This feature enables devices to mirror across large networks without using Bonjour – invaluable for IT. It also uses a QR code or 9-digit mirroring ID to connect, making it easy for teachers and students to mirror their devices. Teachers can easily save recently connected computers in a favorite list for future connections. In a BYOD environment students with any device can mirror their screen so teachers and students can connect, model, and share easily.

How Can Busy Teachers Learn Next-Gen Skills?

How Can Busy Teachers Learn Next-Gen Skills? | Thinking beyond your space | Scoop.it

“Most of today’s classroom teachers are digital immigrants, who need to not only learn the latest technologies but also help students learn skills for workplaces that don’t yet exist. The post How Can Busy Teachers Learn Next-Gen Skills?”

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 8, 2014 6:01 PM

It could be an exciting time to teach. The key learning points are important for both teachers and students. We are less teachers today than ever and more learners. It is very ecological, but the structures do not match. We still inhabit industrial age schools in many ways and continue to foster the underlying foundations even with digital technology.

One point of view of how schools may change as we move from schools based on moving people from farms to factories and what may happen as digital technology continues to expand and the possibility of online learning where the computer would be the "personal tutor". The video is just under 6 minutes and will raise some questions. You might consider sharing it in faculty meeting (and if you do the discussion may be somewhat heated).

Here's why it's legal for Google and Facebook to use your face in ads | GigaOM Tech News

Here's why it's legal for Google and Facebook to use your face in ads | GigaOM Tech News | Thinking beyond your space | Scoop.it

Social advertising — using a person’s profile to market to others in their social networks — is catching on with more companies, but raises the question of how much legal control people have over their own image.

 

Google, for instance is going to plunk your photo into ads: when your friends and contacts do a Google search — or explore Google Play and YouTube — they could see your smiling face endorsing a product or service. The plan has touched off a protest and some grumbling from a US Senator, but should go forward in November. When it does, Google will have its own version of the “Sponsored Stories” that Facebook has shown us for years.

 

But what if you don’t want to be in an ad: can the companies use your picture anyways? The short answer is yes. Here’s a quick Q&A on what Facebook and Google are up to and how they make it legal.

There is a new digital divide on the horizon. It is not based around who has devices and who does not, but instead the new digital divide will be based around students who know how to effectively find and curate information and those who do not.

When Digital Identity Begins | Student Affairs and Technology | InsideHigherEd | Thinking beyond your space | Scoop.it

"My parents purchased a "real" computer when I was a senior in high school. It was the replacement for our Commodore 64. Beloved as it was, the "Commodore" and its dot matrix printer wasn't exactly high-tech in 1995. However, with over a gigabyte of hard drive space, Windows 95, and a mouse, the new machine was epic. And, it offered up a portal to the outside (digital) world via dial-up Internet. I was hooked...and patient. Getting connected wasn't easy and the web was quite young. A year after that, I had my first email account and was surfing the emerging web."

What We Learn from Making - Usable Knowledge

What We Learn from Making - Usable Knowledge | Thinking beyond your space | Scoop.it
What are the real benefits of a maker-centered approach to learning? It’s often described as a way to incubate STEM skills or drive technical innovation — and it is probably both of these. But as a new report from Project Zero’s Agency by Design concludes, the real value of maker education has more to do with building character than with building the next industrial revolution.

The year is coming to a close so it’s time for the traditional end-of-the-year roundup. All year long I’ve collected striking facts, information and tidbits from all over the world in relation to social media. Obviously a lot more has been going on than what you’ll find in this overview but these are the stories that stayed with me somehow. I hope you’ll enjoy this little trip down memory lane.
