Digital Literacy for Digital Natives and Their Professors | educating the net generation | Scoop.it

"In yesterday’s Inside Higher Ed’s technology blog, Joshua Kim wrote about 'Courses, Facebook, and Secret Groups,' in which he pointed out that 'There is a world of social learning going on, and we (meaning us instructors, educational technologists – basically anyone employed on the instructional or administrative sides of the house), know nothing about what is going on.'  He then explains how students are using Secret Groups in Facebook—as well as other technologies—to learn outside the classroom."

I agree that we need to provide guidance and clarify the options which are available on how to utilise various technologies to aid learning, but we should also enable the freedom to then explore those those options. We are then able to support and watch our learners as they evolve.

Great Tutorial on How to Create your Own eBook on iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Great Tutorial on How to Create your Own eBook on iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | educating the net generation | Scoop.it

"Creating an eBook online is no rocket science and anyone with the rudimentary knowledge of how to use internet can get his/her eBook up and viral in a couple of minutes provided the content part of it is already written in a word document. I find the typing and editing part the most  difficult stage in this process;  however, if you just want to set up a short ebook for your students then that would not take you much time.


Just a couple of weeks ago I shared here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning a list of great apps  to use to create eBooks on iPad and I received several emails following that post and some of you asked for tutorials on this topic. Here is one of my favorite tutorials on how to create an eBook on iPad that I always recommend to my fellow teachers. Check it out below and share with us what you think of it. Enjoy"

Stefanie Stewart Crosser's curator insight, September 20, 2014 5:08 PM

They say "Don't take your work home" because it can seriously affect one's family and home-life, but is there enough time in the day to prepare effective lessons without taking your job home? Teachers are not paid enough to create their own lesson plans using technology - let along to teach, with all of the constant changing standards!
