18 Free Mind Mapping Tools for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Mind mapping. concept mapping, or brainstorming are three different names with almost the same meaning : collecting,organizing , and  representing ideas, tasks, words, or other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea into a mind map diagram . Whichever kind of mapping you want to label it , web 2.0 has some free tools for you to help you perform it. I have meticulously compiled a list of some of the best free mapping tools for teachers and students to use.

Domain of One’s Own presentation at TEDxUSagradoCorazon | bavatuesdays | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

I already blogged a bit about both this presentation for TEDxUSagradoCorazon as well as a related talk I gave at Sagrado Corazon about how blogging informed my vision of media more generally, and edtech quite specifically, from the beginning of my career as an isntructional technologist. I literally stumbled into the field as a wayward literature Ph.D. candidate, and the ideas I discovered during the first days of personal blogging, namely creating, openly sharing, remixing, and archiving, continue to drive the work I am part of a decade later. For all that has changed, the ethos has stayed the same.

Leer nos hace más empáticos (entre otras cosas).- | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Son muchos los beneficios de la lectura, digital, no digital o de la forma que cada uno/a prefiera. Una serie de estudios aporta evidencias sobre algunos de sus efectos, por si os quedaba alguna duda. Los recojo y matizo de un artículo, destacando los que creo más novedosos o importantes. Defiendo firmemente que una apropiación adecuada de los adelantos tecnológicos depende de valores y cultura y destaco que en el segundo aspecto España tiene mucho que mejorar. Además de este enorme beneficio social existen otros a nivel individual:

Mónica Tejerina's curator insight, November 15, 2013 10:04 AM

Este artículo es muy interesante, ya nos habla de fomentar la lectura como un modo de acercarnos a otros, descubrir nuevos horizontes y nuevas realidades, trabajar la empatía para resolver problemas sociales acuciantes dentro del contexto de la globalización. Pienso que es muy importante, desarrollar el hábito de la lectura en nuestros niños y jóvenes, para potenciar sus habilidades cognoscitivas y propiciar la participación desde una mirada distinta, que solo se genera a través de la lectura. Hoy día la tecnología, nos acerca la posibilidad de acceder a los libros electrónicos, acortando la brecha de accesibilidad, por ahí, al libro en formato papel.

Top 10 skills for today' s learners

Top 10 skills for today' s learners | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

It's often reiterated within the educational circles and curriculum designers that given the speed with witch technology is advancing, the jobs our students will have in the future are probably not yet created. But the question is : are we teaching students the skills required for this future ? There are now voices raising hither and tither asking for an overall redefinition of the learning priorities; for instance in the United States, there is an increasing trend towards teaching coding in an early age and including it in the curriculum with early literacies. But although technical literacy and digital skills are essential for thriving in tomorrow's job market but they are not enough. The visual below lists some other important skills. Check them out and share with us what you think of them.

International Reach of MOOCs Is Limited by Users' Preferences - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

International Reach of MOOCs Is Limited by Users' Preferences - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Washington — Do massive open online courses offer countries around the world an affordable way to democratize higher education? Maybe, speakers said at an event on Monday here at the Embassy of Norway, but at best such a possibility is a long way off.


The discussion was part of Transatlantic Science Week, an event sponsored by the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research that looks for solutions to problems shared by Norway, Canada, and the United States.


Torbjorn Roe Isaksen, Norway’s minister of education and research, said MOOCs have the potential to “give people all over the world access to education.” But he said he knew of no MOOCs reaching into developing countries in South America and Africa.
