50 Must-Download Apps For Lifelong Learners | Edudemic | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it

Long after degrees have been conferred and careers have been launched, many folks just can’t seem to quit school. For them, life provides an overstuffed cornucopia of educational opportunities that don’t necessarily require hefty loans and navigating different professorial strategies.

Hundreds, if not thousands, of apps are out there just twitching for users to fire them up and absorb a mental nugget or two.

iPad or iFad?

[Blog post by Steve Wheeler] In 2002 I was so enthused by the idea that a school could provide one desktop computer for every child, that I launched a research programme to study one of the first schools in the UK to achieve that goal for each of its 41 Year 6 pupils. We placed a research assistant in a classroom for several hours each week, over an entire term at Broadclyst Community Primary School, near Exeter in Devon, to observe and record what happened.

Location Literacy & Foursquare in the Classroom

In 2012 mobile web access will eclipse desktop access. This means a lot more than shrinking the web so it fits on a mobile screen. The mobile web is not just a smaller desktop web. In the mobile web context is key. It is the central component that differentiates the mobile experience from the desktop one (what I like to call, semi-jokingly, the Late Desktop Era). And location / place is a critical contextual layer.

10 things parents should unlearn… | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it

I’m not blaming the parents. They need to be partners in their children’s learning and we need to find ways to make this possible and meaningful. But many parents base their opinions on the only model of education with which they are familiar… their own schooling. Even if they are young parents, I’d like to hope schooling has changed since they went to school.

Teaching Innovation Is About More Than iPads in the Classroom

Teaching Innovation Is About More Than iPads in the Classroom | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it

Technology, by itself, isn't curative. Human agency shapes the path.In light of this dynamic, two critical questions need to be asked and provisionally answered when integrating technology into education. The first question, while obvious at first glance, isn't always fully articulated: "What are the educational goals of technology integration?"

The second question is equally important and often more elusive: "Do the current systems and processes support the integrative and innovative goals?"

Current overview of the use of mobile operating systems

Current overview of the use of mobile operating systems | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it

This chart on the U.S. smartphone market from Nielsen has a double whammy of bad news for Microsoft and Nokia.


First, it shows that Microsoft's old operating system has more marketshare than Windows Phone 7, its current operating system. And then, within that slice, we see that Samsung and HTC have sold more Windows Phone 7-based devices than Nokia.


This is not how things were supposed to work for either company. Microsoft's revamped Windows Phone 7 was supposed to be a strong third place contender. And Nokia was supposed to sell a lot of phones.
