Sofia Alana's curator insight, November 24, 2015 6:39 PM

Probé iPadio en mi clase. Los estudiantes tenían que llamar a mi canal y dejar un mensaje en que dijeron sus planes para las vacaciones de Thanksgiving. La actividad funcionó muy bien, creo que fue una manera chévere de practicar la competencia oral. Algo muy bueno es que pueden grabarse y dejar comentarios en otras grabaciones sin abrir una cuenta. El único problema es que no hay una manera de ver quién llamó - los estudiantes tienen que introducirse cada vez. Muchos de los estudiantes se olvidaron decir su nombre, y por eso fue difícil calificar.

Of course smartphones can be a distraction. But before we decide to ban them, consider how they can be harnessed for creative learning
Monica Mirza's insight:

"The problem with banning mobiles in schools is that it runs the risk of not giving young people the space to get stuck into technology. We want our kids to code and become digital creators, not to just be passive consumers. "

Monica Mirza's insight:

Is it true ?

 

"[...] Yes, some MOOCs are designed as more passive experiences, where all learners do is watch videos and take multiple-choice tests (again, think compliance training), but many MOOCs are highly active, and interactive, digital learning environments.[...]"

 

The article also suggests 12 ways to make MOOCs more interactive.

Une tablette plutôt que des livres ? Pour le gouvernement, la réponse serait un grand oui. Engagé dans une mutation visant à "faire entrer l'école dans l'ère du numérique", François Hollande promettait en novembre 2014 que tous les élèves de 5e seraient équipés de tablettes à la rentrée 2016.Pourtant, les nouvelles technologies ont d'abord su se faire discrètes dans l'enceinte scolaire : quelques ordinateurs, des vidéo-projecteurs puis des tableaux interactifs installés dans des classes ici ou l

Les descriptions ne permettent pas vraiment de saisir ce qui différencie un outil de curation de l'autre et elles contiennent pas mal d'erreurs de langue mais ce diaporama a l'avantage de fournir une liste d'outils de curation et de partage d'info. Cliquez sur les liens pour en savoir plus, notamment sur les prix (que vaut la version free ?) et les interfaces.
