5 Ways for Students to Create Multimedia eBooks

5 Ways for Students to Create Multimedia eBooks | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it
Writing a multimedia ebook or magazine can be a good way for students to illustrate and or further explain portions of fiction and non-fiction stories that they develop. Multimedia publishing tools that include a collaboration component can further help students as they work together with each other or with you to improve their work.

The following five platforms make it possible for students to create and publish multimedia ebooks in their web browsers.

For The First Time, AI Can Teach Itself Any Language On Earth

For The First Time, AI Can Teach Itself Any Language On Earth | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it
Machine-based translation is amazing, but hundreds of millions of people on our Pale Blue Dot can’t enjoy its benefits–because their language is nowhere to be found in the translator’s pull-down menu. Now, two new artificial intelligence systems–one from the Universidad del País Vasco (UPV) in Spain and another from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU)–promise to change all that, opening the door to true universal translators like the ones in Star Trek.

What Do We Really Mean When We Say ‘Personalized Learning’?

What Do We Really Mean When We Say ‘Personalized Learning’? | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it
Personalization is often used in the ed-tech community to describe a student moving through a prescribed set of activities at his own pace. The only choice a student gets is what box to check on the screen and how quickly to move through the exercises. For many educators that’s not the true meaning of “personalized learning.”

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, December 4, 5:12 PM
"Personalization is often used in the ed-tech community to describe a student moving through a prescribed set of activities at his own pace."

How is that different than the traditional process of prescribed set of activities. The only difference is pacing, maybe? What is different is it is an facile and trite new expression that is easy to throw out there and impress people. It is part of a nonsensical neo-liberal agenda.

I subscribe to John Dewey, William Doll, and Ted Aoki and letting students have a voice in their learning in ways that allow them freedom to make choices and still follow the curriculum-as-plan.
Jerry Busone's curator insight, December 5, 7:39 AM

Personalized learning is not learn at your pace and check the box when you are done. Thats control and compliance to learn something. Personalized learning misgiving the learner the  freedom to follow a meaningful line of inquiry, while building the skills to connect, challenge and analyze information and make their assumptions on best way to leverage those skills.

6 Keys to Designing Engaging eLearning Content

6 Keys to Designing Engaging eLearning Content | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

Many materials writers and instructional designers like to emphasise the importance of engaging content and rightly so too, but what exactly is it that creates engagement with content? I’ve seen lots of content and courses recently that sell themselves as being engaging, but these often fall well short, and as we all know drop out rates on many online courses tends to be extremely high. This would not be happening if the content was genuinely engaging.

There were no major surprises in Educause’s 2017 ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology. For four years running, the number of students preferring a blended learning environment that includes “some to mostly online components” has increased and those preferring a face-to-face only learning environment has continued to decline. The report did find, however, that tablets, which were gaining popularity a few years ago, are now on their way out as a device of preference.
