What We Learned: A 1:1 iPad Reflection

What We Learned: A 1:1 iPad Reflection | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it

The reason for moving away from textbooks is that they offer a myopic vision of a world that is ever-changing. Simply viewing a textbook on an iPad does not change or innovate learning, nor does it use the iPad to its full potential. If your plan is to digitize a standard textbook, save your money and renew your textbook licenses.

State of the Commons | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it
Creative Commons licenses are the standard for sharing free content online for individual creators, governments, foundations, and academics. CC licenses have changed the way the internet works, providing a core function to some of the largest content platforms on the web. The result is greater access to knowledge and culture for everyone, everywhere.
Mark Pegrum's insight:

This a really helpful - and really encouraging - infographic showing the current usage of CC licences, which are so important for education.

Those Who Use E-Readers Are Worse At Remembering A Plot

Those Who Use E-Readers Are Worse At Remembering A Plot | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it

Yes, according to a new study. The Guardian reports that lead researcher Anne Mangen of Stavanger University in Norway said at a recent conference in Italy that she and those she worked with presented 50 people with a short story by writer Elizabeth George. Of those 50 readers, 25 received a paper copy and 25 used a Kindle e-reader and then all were then asked questions about the story’s setting, characters, and other details. 

Mark Pegrum's insight:

More and more reports of this nature are appearing. Is this something that will change as we get used to digital reading, or is there something inherent in the digital medium that decreases understanding and/or retention?

Turning off autocorrect

Turning off autocorrect | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it

If you use a phone to send text messages, chances are you’ve been burned by autocorrect at some point. You’ve typed messages to friends or co-workers wherein “meeting” morphed into “mating,” or the phone changed “Trish” to “trash” without you noticing—making you appear ridiculous, incompetent, or drunk. We’ve all been there.

 

A quick perusal of Twitter on a few recent weekday afternoons showed that someone tweets “stupid autocorrect” or “f---ing autocorrect” approximately once every 65 seconds. And seemingly everyone has a story about bizarre or problematic “corrections”—“arguments” becoming “argue menus,” “hiney” taking the place of “honey,” and so on. The iPhone transforms “Steve Buscemi” into “Steve bus emu.”

In fact, when used judiciously, ICT can support different aspects of learning and development processes of young children, including language, creativity and problem-solving skills. Children can also play and learn together using ICT, which can foster their ability to communicate and collaborate. Moreover, ICT facilitate more personalized learning and thus can diversify and increase learning opportunities for every child, including children with special educational needs.
