Discovery Through eLearning: A Small Collection of Free eLearning Tools

Discovery Through eLearning: A Small Collection of Free eLearning Tools | Sharing online to enrich learning | Scoop.it

A Small Collection of Free eLearning Tools

Recently I was asked to showcase at the eACH Conference 2012, some free elearning tools that can be used for deigning/developing elearning. I presented just a few of my favourites out of the hundreds that are available within this 20 minute session.

 

With some incredible inspiration from Jane Hart's Top 100 Tools for Learning (2011) resources, my personal PLN, including various blog writers that I connect with (like David Kelly), and items that I have used in my own development I put together this brief collection of tools.

Inspiration and resources for more free tools/articles/ideas are found on the last 8 slides of this presentation.

At its core, the issues associated with mobile learning get to the very fundamentals of what happens in class everyday. At their best, cell phones and mobile devices seamlessly facilitate what students and teachers already do in thriving, inspiring classrooms. Students communicate and collaborate with each other and the teacher.

 

They apply facts and information they’ve found to formulate or back up their ideas. They create projects to deepen their understanding, association with, and presentation of ideas.

Amazon Alters Rules for Kindles in School Libraries

Amazon Alters Rules for Kindles in School Libraries | Sharing online to enrich learning | Scoop.it

Amazon has apparently created new rules governing the use of its Kindle ereader in school libraries. The website of the ecommerce giant states that content cannot be loaded across multiple devices at one time, and an Amazon rep told at least one school librarian, Buffy Hamilton, that ebooks cannot be ported to more than one device. Amazon also requires that each Kindle be tethered to its own account.
