Invisible technology: visible benefits in the classroom

Invisible technology: visible benefits in the classroom | TI | Scoop.it

Technology is important, but it does not replace quality human relationships.

Ron Hershey's curator insight, December 17, 2013 5:20 AM

While this article is from the UK, the trend for mobile computing in the classroom will spread globally, which only supports the need for companies to implement the means to distribute digital content electronically.

Audrey's curator insight, December 19, 2013 1:51 PM

It is already a reality in certain educational establishments, particularly those where there are 5 or less students in the class.  Education then becomes group facilitated learning.  For example, a student whose first language is Russian or Chinese, studying in the UK may not fully understand an English word.  They are able to type the word into their mobile device.   The result is an explanation of the word . They  share the meaning with the other students. The new word they discover has now expanded all students vocabulary.

 

Here is an example:  What is the meaning of infer?  The moble device may suggest conclude.  The teacher suggests deduce  and assume. Another student may suggest understand.

 

The result:   Students have increased their language, in about two minutes.

UNESCO Office in Bangkok: Case Studies on Integrating ICT into Teacher Education Curriculum in Asia

UNESCO Office in Bangkok: Case Studies on Integrating ICT into Teacher Education Curriculum in Asia | TI | Scoop.it

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has become an integral part of our daily lives for the last decades. The dramatic adaptation of ICT has in turn called for education reforms at various levels with a view to creating an enabling educational environment for next generations to effectively function in the digital era. Therefore, teachers’ capacity of integrating ICT into their teaching practices plays a critical role in achieving the goals of the education reform.

8 Frequent Mistakes Made with iPads in School

8 Frequent Mistakes Made with iPads in School | TI | Scoop.it

iPad mobility means that students can move about taking photographs, recording audio, and shooting video, in any number of places. They can make multimedia stories, demonstrate how to solve math problems, create and simulate virtual experiences of virtually anything, and on and on. The skill of learning to edit media to enhance a project will be essential for the future. Active creativity and personalized learning are some of the main assets of any tablet.

A lot of good points - espcially not realizing the power of these devices.

Especial: Cloud Computing o Computacion en Nube. Que es? Para qué sirve?

Especial: Cloud Computing o Computacion en Nube. Que es? Para qué sirve? | TI | Scoop.it

"En el pasado (y presente), el uso de la PC no ha cambiado mucho: Instalamos un sistema operativo. Tras instalarlo, buscamos aplicaciones (software), que también instalamos en nuestra PC y que nos permitirá realizar diferentes tareas. Tenemos, pues, aplicaciones de Oficina (Word, Excel), aplicaciones de diseño o fotografía (Photoshop, Illustrator, inDesign), aplicaciones multimedia (Reproductor Musical, de Videos). Infinidad de software que descargamos, instalamos, y utilizamos.
La idea del cloud computing (donde nube es una metáfora de “internet”) es que, gracias a los avances tecnológicos, ya no necesitamos que estas aplicaciones residan en nuestra PC, pues podemos acceder a servicios similares, desde el navegador. Necesitan editar documentos? Existen alternativas como Google Docs, o Zoho, o incluso Docs.com, que nos ofrecen herramientas similares. Edición de fotos? Existe Thumba, por ejemplo, que vimos el día de ayer. Música? Ni siquiera tienen que descargar o tener las canciones. Éstas pueden vivir tranquilamente en la nube, y podemos acceder a las canciones no sólo localmente (desde una PC), sino que podemos hacerlo de otra PC, de nuestro teléfono, o cualquier otro dispositivo conectado a la web.

Para nosotros, usuarios comunes y corrientes, el Cloud Computing probablemente sea cosa ya de todos los días. Usan Gmail, Hotmail, o cualquier otro servicio de correo electrónico online? Entonces están utilizando ya alguna manera de Cloud Computing, donde han delegado la tarea que antes cumplían aplicaciones, los famosos clientes de correo electrónico, al navegador.
Y es que poco a poco, el navegador se está convirtiendo en nuestro nuevo sistema operativo, dada la cantidad de usos que le damos. Se han puesto a pensar todo lo que el navegador puede hacer?"

6 Fantastic Apps that Help Grow your Business

6 Fantastic Apps that Help Grow your Business | TI | Scoop.it

Technology today has made it so much easier for newer businesses to grow. Since there’s a rather good chance you have a smartphone, you need to know which apps you should take advantage of to help your business grow at a good rate. Listed below are a handful of apps you should consider today:

 

#1 Prosper
Are you trying to start up a business with little to no capital? If so, this is where Prosper comes into play. Prosper allows anyone to create a profile and describe what kind of loan they are looking for. After filling out a simple questionnaire, Prosper will rate you based on your credit history. From there, users on the website can offer money to your cause and make interest on their initial investment. As you can see, it’s a win-win situation since you can get a loan fast and the investors on the website can make interest on their investment.

 

#2 NetworthIQ
This is a unique app and idea that allows you to keep track of your business expenses and your personal net worth. Aside from the financial tracking, you can also compare yourself to other professionals such as Infor CEO Charles Phillips, Bill Gates and others that are in your industry. NetworthIQ is a great app to keep your business on the right financial track.

 

#3 SidejobTrack
If your business offers any sort of service to the public, SidejobTrack will make your life a lot easier. With this app, you can keep all of your jobs organized in one place. You can send out invoices, estimates, report your taxes and manage projects right on your phone.

 

#4 Meebo
If you’re still using any sort of instant messaging platform such as AIM, Google Talk, MSN Messenger or Yahoo!, Meebo combines these platforms into one. Since you don’t have to be at your computer to answer an instant message, Meebo allows you to be readily available as long as your app is running on the phone. No longer do you have to worry about rushing back to your computer to send an instant message.

 

#5 Remember the Milk
Trying to organize tasks can be hard without the proper tools. Remember the Milk is an easy to use task manager that allows you to set up lists, users and help you remember all of your tasks for the day, week, month or year. You can share your lists, add reminders to email and keep track of what needs to be done and what has been done in the past. The great thing about it is that it can even integrate with Google Calendar.

 

#6 Zoho
Zoho is a comprehensive app that includes just about every tool your business needs. It includes an office suite packed with word processing tools, productivity tools, polls and website monitoring. While this app is still in its infancy stages, this web-based writing program is a great way to share your documents all in one place.
