MediaPost Publications The Aesthetic Digital Revolution 03/11/2013 | digital electronic media | Scoop.it

In 2012, we saw the mainstream emergence of a new form of digital interfaces and storytelling -- one that combines the power of technology with compelling visual narratives designed to drive extended user engagement. The rapid proliferation of smartphone and tablet devices into the marketplace has had a profound impact on how users consume and engage with digital content. At the same time, it has had an equally significant influence on how developers are approaching digital design -- capitalizing on the unique, native sensory features of these devices (such as tap and swipe) and by elevating the prominence of larger visual formats such as photos.

 

It comes as no surprise that some of 2012's greatest success stories are from those that have embraced these new design principles into the core of the user experience, and consequently experienced phenomenal audience growth and engagement levels. Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, Flipboard and (yes) Facebook have all embraced this design philosophy, adding in simple layers of social mechanics to help extend the depth and breadth of this highly shareable content.

How to Find the Magic in an Educational App | EdTech

How to Find the Magic in an Educational App | EdTech | digital electronic media | Scoop.it

The concept of how to find the magic in an educational app came up recently during our weekly EducationalAppTalk forum. The question arose, “Why should educational apps be field-tested?” Well, we (teacherswithapps) field test apps with kids on a regular basis and have found that most often it is the kids who find the MAGIC. The magic happens when really good content comes together with a fun and totally engaging interface. Neither can stand-alone; adults often miss critical components that children find naturally in the course of their play.

 

Developers can incorporate the best content in the world, it could be aligned to the Common Core State Standards, it could be research-based, and it could be all wrong for the age group it was designed for. Then we have apps claiming to be educational, with all the bells and whistles pulling out all the stops… curriculum never comes up and once again the developer and their app falls short.

 

My partner and I have been on both sides of the fence. We started out making educational apps then eventually morphed into creating Teachers With Apps (TWA), an educational app review site. TWA is unique in that we field-test all the apps we review with a cross-section of children. We feel we cannot realistically write a fair review without seeing an app in action.

Teachers reveal wide usage of digital tools—and wide disparities among lower and higher income schools | Digital Book World

Teachers reveal wide usage of digital tools—and wide disparities among lower and higher income schools | Digital Book World | digital electronic media | Scoop.it

A new report released by the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project shows that though digital tools are widely used throughout U.S. schools, teachers who serve the lowest income students have more difficulty using digital tools effectively.

 

“Digital technologies have become essential instructional tools for the vast majority of teachers in this study,” says Kristen Purcell, Associate Director for Research at the Pew Internet Project, and an author of the report. “Yet, teachers whose students are from the lowest income households feel they are at a disadvantage when it comes to using the internet and other digital tools such as cell phones, tablet computers and e-readers to enhance the learning process.”

 

The survey finds that teachers and students actively use digital tools in class and as part of assignments, and a majority of these teachers are satisfied with the technology support they receive from their school. However, the report also reveals a concern about the existence of a “digital divide,” that is, a difference in access to technology between high-income and low-income students. Teachers of the lowest income students, this report concludes, face more challenges when bringing digital tools to their classrooms.

 

Among the teachers surveyed, some key findings include:
