L'opposition est un peu blanc/noir. N'empêche en pratiquant l'e-learning, il est indéniable qu'on est passé dans un autre paradigme d'apprentissage, une autre relation avec l'étudiant.

Why It's Time To Focus On Skills (Not Just Cool Tools) - Edudemic

Why It's Time To Focus On Skills (Not Just Cool Tools) - Edudemic | Web 2.0 | Scoop.it
There is a laser-like focus on cool tools and apps these days. Eric Patnoudes encourages you to take a step back and take time to focus on skills.

 

 

We have all seen list upon list of “cool tools,” “web 2.0 websites,” “educational apps.” They are a great source for the latest and greatest websites/tools in education. The problem is that they all fall short when it comes to talking about technology skills. Identifying and teaching transferable technology skills are crucial for students to not only be college and career ready, but also to prepare them to lead productive lives in an increasingly global and digital world. Ultimately these types of lists are a detriment to teachers and the effective integration of technology into the classroom.

Any one of these web tools that a freshman in high school learns today will most likely not exist or will be replaced by something better in 8-10 years when that freshman graduates from college.

However, if teachers change their approach to focus on transferable technology skills (i.e. the NETS-S) it will make the integration of technology more meaningful and prepare our students with skills they can take with them in the future.

Common Questions and Concerns“I want my students to use more technology but I don’t know where to start.”“That (insert a program, website, “tool” here) is really cool, can you show me how to use it in my class?”“There is not enough time to teach my students how to use technology AND everything in the curriculum.”“I want to my students to use Prezi because PowerPoint is just so boring and out of date.”“How can I teach my students how to use technology if I don’t know how to use it myself?”

We have been doing a lot of  reviews of educational  mobile apps. We particularly focused on the ones that work on iPad and we tried to cover almost all the fields from digital story telling to apps to teach creativity. Our purpose is to provide teachers with a repository of apps to choose from  when trying them with their students in the classroom. Check out the categories below and click on any title to access the correspondent apps it contains. Enjoy
