Yes! A guided "funnel" to help students look more critically at content online. It can't help but "spill over" to other areas beyond schoolwork, right?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 25, 10:21 PM

There are good ideas. What I find interesting, is I know some Internet sources i.e. blogs that are followed extensively and are written by people who spent little time in the classroom and no nothing about teaching.

And how might a 1-to-1 mobile learning project contribute to such improvement?

4 Top Educational Tools for Visual Learners - AVATAR GENERATION | Transliteracy & eLearning | Scoop.it
With the assistance of mobile technology, visual learners are given more opportunity to make the learning experience easier, more interactive, and fun. These people are able to comprehend words into pictures in their head and vice versa, according to a study by Penn Psychology. They are able to learn faster with the help of visual content, either as a photo or a video. This is not at all surprising as a recent study by the American researchers revealed that a human brain is able to process images in 13 milliseconds.

Today, there are applications that are able to help simplify the learning process while on-the-go for visual learners. Here are the top educational tools you must try:

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post | Transliteracy & eLearning | Scoop.it

This term I have been working with upper Key Stage 2 pupils to develop interactive adventure style games in Book Creator. One of the features of the app is it allows you to link objects such as images and text to other pages within the book. For images, tap on the image to select it, then tap on the Info icon and use the hyperlink box to type in the page number. For text, highlight the text withIn the text box and you will see a hyperlink option.

This has enabled us to create games where choices, questions and decisions are asked of the user/player throughout. We have then used this as a stimulus for writing, not only creatively but also instruction and advertising. Above are a few screen shots of an example book I made but I didn't want to show the pupils too much as I wanted them to come up with their own ideas.
