Nothing could be further from the truth, and there are countless–and complex–reasons for this, but it also makes sense at the basic benefits of game-based learning. Of course children should not spend every single second of the day staring at a computer screen. Nevertheless, education and online gaming certainly aren’t enemies either. In fact, playing online games may be something which can enhance a child’s learning and development. How?"

Games are like computers : tools. Let's use/play them to turn them into great assets  -and not damaging instruments ;-) Hence the necessity of teaching learners how to remain their tools' masters.

Games can be helpful if you know how to "play" with them and the benefits for children in the process-learning.

For Low-Income Kids, Access to Devices Could Be the Equalizer

For Low-Income Kids, Access to Devices Could Be the Equalizer | Future Emerging Technologies in Education and Learning | Scoop.it

The Internet is about empowerment. If we take away this access because we think certain people aren’t going to use it right, we’re no better than governments who take away voting rights from minorities.

Feature: Are eBook Apps, HTML5 or ePub3 the Future of Digital Publishing? | Good E-Reader - ebook Reader and Digital Publishing News | Future Emerging Technologies in Education and Learning | Scoop.it

"Digital Publishing is one of the fastest growing segments and most major publishers are now seeing 21% of their total revenues stem from it. Publishers cannot decide on what the future of publishing will entail. There are three main aspects that the vast majority of companies employing for their strategy. We are seeing strong growth with dedicated e-Reading apps, HTML5, and ePub3/ePub2 as the main factors for content delivery. In the next three weeks, we will be talking to some of the leading digital publishers that are currently living in this space. They will be talking  about the future and current state of digital publishing and how the industry will look in 2013-2014.

 

Dedicated e-Reading Apps

 

Android and iOS are two of the most dominant operating systems in the world. Apple, Amazon and Samsung currently the most popular brands in the tablet space . Together they reap the largest market share with  85% of all tablet users loyal to one of these devices.  Most digital publishers maintain their own reading apps on both of these platforms and also develop on other niche operating systems, such as Blackberry and Windows 8. Maintaining updates, paying development fees and issuing new features often have prohibitive costs for smaller publishers and eBook companies. It is often very hard to compete with the army of developers that Amazon, Kobo and Barnes and Noble employs...."

Personalize Learning: 10 Predictions for Personalized Learning for 2013 | Future Emerging Technologies in Education and Learning | Scoop.it

Teachers and learners of all ages are connecting more than ever. In 2013, we will see teachers expanding their Personal Learning Networks (PLN) using social media. They will be telling more stories and sharing their journeys as they personalize learning. Learners will be using mobile devices for learning in and out of school. We will be seeing learners involved in more global collaborative projects in 2013.

The future outlined here would seem to be achievable but can students really be trusted to "own" their learning?

I like this statement "It is time to bring back inquiry and encourage questions that have no right answers."

What Will It Take to Bring Mobile Ed to the Developing World? | MindShift | Future Emerging Technologies in Education and Learning | Scoop.it

In developing countries, where smartphones and dependable cellular networks are still scarce, it’s been difficult to gauge the real impact of the mobile education movement. But with the combination of different factors — the advent of new technology, decreased pricing for data, a worldwide lust for mobile education, and a persisting patience for smaller screens and lower connection speeds in nations where there is little alternative — the landscape in developing countries may be at a tipping point.
