Your links, paid search, and social media acts as the icing, but your content, information architecture, content management system, and infrastructure act as the sugar and makes the cake.

Understanding personal learning networks: Their structure, content and the networking skills to optimally use them | Web 2.0 and Social Media | Scoop.it

Networking is a key skill in professional careers, supporting the individual’s growth and learning. However, little is known about how professionals intentionally manage the connections in their personal networks and which factors influence their decisions in connecting with others for the purpose of learning. In this article, we present a model of personal professional networking for creating a personal learning network, based on an investigation through a literature study, semi–structured interviews and a survey.

A device just for education that’s loaded with filtering and management software sounds like a simple and convenient solution to many IT and administrator concerns."

Rebecca Ferlazzo's curator insight, May 12, 2013 9:27 PM

An important point to remember when we are considering using technology in the classroom. The integration of technology can be a help in the classroom while simply using technology can become a hinderance. So where do we make that distinction? 

James Buchanan's curator insight, June 5, 2013 11:47 PM

This article is about digital technology and how it is used and integrated. Are we truly USING technology when it is not integrated? When we ask for assessment that is presented with powerpoint, for example, we could just as easily ask them to write it in a book or make a poster. Digital technology should be used to facilitate collaboration and build high level thinking skills, that is how learning occurs.

 

Rebecca Wilkins's curator insight, July 17, 2015 9:18 PM

Technology use is the first step.  Technology integration is the opportunity to combine technology with pedagogy.  Technology infusion is the process of using technology as a tool for learning, thinking, and problem solving.

"Right now, online and hybrid offerings seem to be as good as standard lectures at transmitting this kind of knowledge, and, in the years ahead, they are bound to get better — more imaginatively curated, more interactive and with better assessments... The problem is that as online education becomes more pervasive, universities can no longer primarily be in the business of transmitting technical knowledge."

There are a variety of instructional uses for this app, from using it as a publishing tool for project-based learning to a summative assessment at the end of a unit.  Students can embed images, audio files, video files, and write text.  The advantage of an epub document over a PDF document is that all of the media will be preserved and available for readers to interact with when the final product is published.  

Depending on how you use Creative Book Builder with students, this app can help students complete tasks that align with every level of the revised Bloom's Taxonomy.  Explore the different ways this app can be used at each level of Bloom's Taxonomy..."
