One other product I have been getting excited about is Verso. This platform is not quite a learning management system, and has built in interactivity. I like it because it is crazy easy to use. It is sort of the anti-LMS way to have students engage with your content.

If students are using this in their schools, Unis need to step up their game re interactivity.

 

Looks like a great idea, and we should try this.

This app has been a plaything of mine for the last couple of weeks, and I am going to play over the holidays to see how it works. It is very easy to use: upload a video, write some notes/activities and there is the lesson. Seems a simple way to make flipped content for those starting to flip.

This is very interesting! I've never considered this idea! I would like to see some studies that prove this article right, however. I wonder why this is encouraged in most schools? I would love to hear more about this! 

Ruth Obadia's curator insight, September 12, 2013 11:33 PM

Instead of isolating themselves with their devices, students lean in and collaborate using the devices available. The trick is to design learning opportunities that encourage conversation and collaboration. This approach is more social and engaging for students anyway and allows teachers to leverage the collective intelligence in the room.

robyns tut's curator insight, September 16, 2013 1:12 PM

I think this is a great idea. We truly are moving into an era where technology is taking over and transforming our lives. The way we work and communicate are totally technological based. Teachers need to embrace this new era of technology, we are moving forward and they need to get with it or they will fall behind.

Your 140 characters are precious. Nobody wants to waste valuable Twitter type on extra-long hyperlinks; that's why shortlink generators like Bitly are indispensable to tweeters in the know. And even though Twitter now has its own shortlink service, Bitly has stayed one step ahead by offering detailed data analysis on every link you share

How to Infuse Digital Literacy Throughout the Curriculum | TickTockTech | Scoop.it

In our emerging digital world, a new medium of exchange has developed: online engagement, especially via social media. Effectively engaging online requires a myriad of skills that we strive to foster in school – effective written communication, brevity and civility. These components are often highlighted in Digital Citizenship programs, but in tradition-bound K12 education, we often deride social media as trite or ineffective.

LibrarianLand's curator insight, April 7, 11:53 AM

Many students still do not understand the limitations of finding information on the free web. Google is about the extent of it and if it isn't found in the first few results, it does not exist or is too hard to find (or worse still, what is found must be "it.").

 

From article: "We need to ensure that they know how to evaluate a website, a blog post, a tweet, a Facebook entry. These evaluative skills transfer cross curricularly and prepare students for the broader world of online communication."

Just as salt allowed for the keeping of meats, the advent of antibiotics made deadly viruses and diseases simply inconvenient, and electricity completely altered when and where we slept and work and played, technology is again changing the kind of “stuff” a student needs to know."

Don’t use technology.… Do use technology.… - Mark Anderson's Blog

Don’t use technology.… Do use technology.… - Mark Anderson's Blog | TickTockTech | Scoop.it

"Don’t get me wrong – given my Twitter ID it’s a given that I believe very strongly in using technology to support and enhance learning. The OED states that an evangelist is “a person who seeks to convert others to the Christian faith, especially by public preaching”, so ok… I might not be doing the Christian faith bit, but as an ‘ICT Evangelist’ I do believe that technology has the power to change our world and certainly the learning that takes place in our classrooms and beyond.

 

There’s a problem though. There is a dichotomy of experiences, skills, beliefs and abilities when it comes to using technology in our classrooms. It’s written in to the United States Declaration of Independence that, “all men are born equal”, but it’s certainly not true when it comes to the experiences that our students receive in their lessons at the hands of some of our teachers and that’s before you even think about entering technology into the equation."

Connectivism as a Digital Age Learning Theory

George Siemens and Stephen Downes developed a theory for the digital age, called connectivism, denouncing boundaries of behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism.
