Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 1, 2014 11:18 AM

When digital technologies are used well, they not only motivate they enhance learning. When they are poorly used, they distract from learning and motivation.

Damiano Celestini's curator insight, September 23, 2014 7:15 AM

Il concetto di applicare il formato graphic novel al giornalismo non è nuovo, ovviamente. Ma la Illustrated Press ha accresciuto la sua popolarità e la produzione negli ultimi anni, spinta anche dalla facilità di pubblicare on-line e dal successo dei contenuti visivi sui social media.

What’s the Difference Between a Flipped Classroom and Flipped Learning?

What’s the Difference Between a Flipped Classroom and Flipped Learning? | Webortash | Scoop.it

Why do I characterize this explanation as a flipped classroom and not flipped learning? Because, contrary to popular belief, these terms are not synonymous. Yet nearly every article written on these topics mistakenly equates them.

Keep in mind that no matter what 'method' you use it should be focused on the student and their learning. Very well explained in this article!

The Single Most Important Factor for iPad Success in Schools

The Single Most Important Factor for iPad Success in Schools | Webortash | Scoop.it

The researchers found that "personal 'ownership' of the device is seen as the single most important factor for successful use of this technology." They found ownership is fundamental for increasing students levels of motivation, interest, and engagement. Personal ownership promotes greater student autonomy and self-efficacy. Best of all, ownership encourages students to take more responsibility for their learning.

Rodrigo Mesquita's curator insight, September 3, 2013 10:04 AM

"Na minha experiência, a maneira como invenção, inovação e mudança acontecem é por meio de esforço de equipe. Não há gênio solitário que descobre tudo e manda a fórmula mágica. Você estuda, você debate, você stressa e as respostas começam a surgir. Isso leva tempo. Nada acontece rapidamente neste mundo. Você desenvolve teorias e hipóteses, mas não sei se os leitores vão responder. Você pode fazer como muitos experimentos, tão rapidamente quanto possível. 'Rapidamente' na minha mente seria anos. "
