Pokemon Go @ School

Pokemon Go @ School | 21Century Education | Scoop.it
If you work in a school, you are going to have to deal with the fact that students (and teachers) are going to play this during class time. I know some of you’ve built great digital citizenship at your schools and have guidelines in place like: games allowed during break only etc… but this is going to push all the boundaries you have in place.

Get behind it or on top of it, you can not ignore it.
 

It’s only just been released, it hits the sweet point of everyone under 25 and the gamers/geeks above that. It’s family friendly and firmly rooted in our pop culture. This will be somewhat of a storm in a teacup when you return to school after these holidays, it will eventually die back down in popularity but there will remain a large portion of users that are dedicated. So take the initiative and set the expectations your school or classroom has about Pokemon Go. I hope you get behind it because there are some great opportunities for learning and some very cool things you could do.

Below we’ll look at what you need to be aware of and share some ideas of what you can take advantage of too. You can check their support page for most FAQs about the app and if you still have a question just ask it in our comments section.

It’s ‘digital heroin’: How screens turn kids into psychotic junkies

It’s ‘digital heroin’: How screens turn kids into psychotic junkies | 21Century Education | Scoop.it

Susan* bought her 6-year-old son John an iPad when he was in first grade. “I thought, ‘Why not let him get a jump on things?’ ” she told me during a therapy session. John’s school had begun using the devices with younger and younger grades — and his technology teacher had raved about their educational benefits — so Susan wanted to do what was best for her sandy-haired boy who loved reading and playing baseball.

UNESCO Office in Bangkok: Blended Learning for Quality Higher Education: Selected Case Studies on Implementation from Asia-Pacific

UNESCO Office in Bangkok: Blended Learning for Quality Higher Education: Selected Case Studies on Implementation from Asia-Pacific | 21Century Education | Scoop.it
The rapid advancement of technologies and their ubiquitous use in our daily lives have dramatically changed the way knowledge is created and disseminated. As a technology-enhanced pedagogical approach, blended learning – the deliberate combination of online learning with face-to-face classroom-based learning – provides higher education institutions (HEIs) with the opportunities to enhance the quality of teaching and learning. While many of these opportunities have been well-documented in the literature, implementing and scaling up blended learning courses pose enormous challenges for HEIs in the Asia-Pacific region.

To address these challenges, UNESCO Bangkok in partnership with The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) launched a two-year project to build the capacity of HEIs for blended learning. One of the outcomes of the project was this book by a team of blended learning experts and leaders in the region. Blended Learning for Quality Higher Education presents a framework and self-assessment tool developed from a holistic view of building institutional capacity to drive, sustain, and scale up blended learning. It incorporates case studies from experienced HEIs in the region to demonstrate how the framework and its dimensions could be operationalised, and how the gaps identified in the self-assessment exercise could be addressed.

Interesting view of how BYOD connects to BYOA (Bring Your Own App) in the new and diverse educational scenarios.  Something to really think about when implementing the use of technology in the classroom.  Several steps must also be taken into consideration as this article mentions them.  Since educational technology is surrounded by applications that are used to create material, but do you know what type of security implications you are running in to.

Virtual education expert details six ways these schools are better than traditional brick-and-mortar classrooms.

Modern technology connects us and allows communities to share resources in unprecedented ways. Virtual education leverages these connections to provide everyone, regardless of geographic location, access to experts and high quality learning experiences. As technology has improved, virtual education has evolved to become a tool that helps close gaps in high schools and colleges.

Quality online learning programs provide rigorous curriculum, meaningful teaching resources, and access to specialized programs, such as industry training for students, schools and teachers.

Why the Future of Adult Learning Is Mobile Learning | Technology and Learning

Why the Future of Adult Learning Is Mobile Learning | Technology and Learning | 21Century Education | Scoop.it
Is the future of learning mobile? Maybe, maybe not.
Traditional postsecondary digital education has not yet lived up to the mobile promise. Over half (56.5%) of Facebook users may login only from a mobile device, but we are no where close to that percentage with campus learning management system (LMS) use. 
When it comes to edtech, we still seem to be stuck in a web-first - as opposed to mobile-first - world.
Adult learning may be different.
I’m here to say that the future of adult learning is mobile learning.
