Why Mobile Learning Is Inevitable | Edudemic

Why Mobile Learning Is Inevitable | Edudemic | Better Teaching | Scoop.it

This may sound like a lofty title, but it’s not wrong. There’s an impressive presentation making the rounds dubbed “Mobile is eating the World” by Benedict Evans. In the presentation, Evans shows some staggering charts, interesting factoids, and all the other statistics you’d expect with a title so grand. It makes me think about mobile learning, mobile browsing, and mobile everything.

 

But the real story here is about education. It’s about how we’re all going to be learning in the next few years and generations according to the data in the new presentation.

 

Mobile learning is not only on the rise, it’s inevitable...

15 Excellent iPad Apps for Creating Books ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

15 Excellent iPad Apps for Creating Books ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Better Teaching | Scoop.it

"I just learned through our colleagues in TeachThought about this interesting list featuring 15 iPad apps to create books. The list was created by Meg Wilson . Of course the word 'book' here is, more or less, used metaphorically to mean small to medium size writing projects. These are projects you can do with your students in class or ones that can span the entire semester or even school year. Book Creator and Book Writer  are my favourite apps in this list and some of the apps included here are also new to me which is not surprising giving the rapidity with which apps are developed and created each day."

Please teacher, more games!

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 8:19 AM

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.

The Best Thing To Ever Happen To Google Drive For Teachers - TeachThought

The Best Thing To Ever Happen To Google Drive For Teachers - TeachThought | Better Teaching | Scoop.it

"First came cloud-based word processing in the form of Google Docs.

With cloud-based word processing in education, teachers could remotely access student work, students (provided they had internet access and had a Google account) could retrieve their work from anywhere, and writers could collaborate in real-time with their peers to double-team the pain-staking work that is the writing process.

 

Then Google finally delivered on the long-rumored Google Drive, giving teachers and students the ability to store both documents and images, pdfs and presentations, video files, and more, turning Google into a cloud hard-drive of sorts. Further, the change to Google Drive brought with it access to apps to bolster what Google Drive could do.

Which brings us to the latest–and perhaps best–evolution of Google Drive for teachers."

Checkout the 6 minute instructional video! This looks extremely good as it allows teacher to offer feed back in the form of voice notes integrated into the text of a student's paper. The video is clear and the procedure simple. --Lou

Excerpt:

"...To be clear, this isn’t a Google project, but rather an app that integrate with Google Drive to work its magic. But what (simple) magic it allows: cloud-based, tablet-friendly voice feedback and commenting for documents, allowing you to provide thorough feedback and guidance for writers without making endless notes in tiny margins on papers that can get misinterpreted or lost...
