How to Download e-books from the Public Library on the iPad | PadGadget

How to Download e-books from the Public Library on the iPad | PadGadget | Sharing online to enrich learning | Scoop.it
Have you checked out a book from your public library and read it on your iPad yet? You didn’t know you could do that? It’s possible for library patrons to borrow books from their public library, read them on the iPad’s gorgeous screen, all without leaving home or ever having to worry about an overdue library book.

 

The majority of public libraries offer digital media to their patrons. As e-readers and tablets become more popular, it is likely that the amount of digital content available to readers will increase, as will public libraries’ commitment to invest in digital content. (USA)

Mobile Learning and The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture

Mobile Learning and The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture | Sharing online to enrich learning | Scoop.it

"I have jumped onto the Flipped Classroom craze to take the opportunity to propose and discuss an experiential model of education (ala John Dewey and Kurt Hahn), one that has experience at its core and provides learning options for all types of learners. In this model, the videos, as they are discussed in the flipped classroom. support the learning rather than drive it.

 

My series on the Flipped Classroom – The Full Picture includes the following posts:

 

The Flipped Classroom Model: A Full Picture
Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture for Higher Education
Flipped Classroom Full Picture: An Example Lesson
UDL and The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture"

13 ways Twitter Improves Education | Sharing online to enrich learning | Scoop.it

Here’s some ammunition for what often turns into a pitched, take-sides verbal brawl as well-intended teachers try to come to a compromise on using Twitter (in fact, many of the new Web 2.0 tools–blogs, wikis, websites that require registrations and log-ins, discussion forums. You can probably add to this list) that works for all stakeholders

10 Steps To Curate Your Social Media Content With Scoop.it for Increased Value | Social Media Pearls

10 Steps To Curate Your Social Media Content With Scoop.it for Increased Value | Social Media Pearls | Sharing online to enrich learning | Scoop.it

This is a very precise guide to using Scoop.it that Shirley Williams published on Social Media Pearls. We love the way she shared her introduction to Scoop.it:

"First, Let me share a story on my introduction to Scoop.it. I wrote a blogpost on “storytelling”. I received a trackback to Scoop.it. I followed it to find a curated post by Karen Dietz sharing her perspective and summary of my post with my link still intact. I used this new platform to thank her and started following her web-magazine (Just Story It). The outcome: Karen gained a new targeted follower and I gained new traffic to my site. Another curator, Martin Gysler did exactly the same; I really liked his posts and I started to follow him but this time I joined Scoop.it!"

A lot of you have commented on why you liked Scoop.it first because it was simple but stocked to it because of the community it provided. We love to see that happen!

Flip This: Bloom’s Taxonomy Should Start with Creating

Flip This: Bloom’s Taxonomy Should Start with Creating | Sharing online to enrich learning | Scoop.it

"I think the revised Bloom’s Taxonomy is wrong.

 

I know this statement sounds heretical in the realms of education, but I think this is something we should rethink, especially since it is so widely taught to pre-service teachers. I agree that the taxonomy accurately classifies various types of cognitive thinking skills. It certainly identifies the different levels of complexity. But its organizing framework is dead wrong. Here’s why."
