Survey: Nearly half of schools to move to BYOT in near future

Survey: Nearly half of schools to move to BYOT in near future | Integration of Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"A few years ago, the notion of using a smartphone as a legitimate learning tool seemed improbable, if not out-and-out foolish. Students, in most cases were either prohibited from bringing their mobile phones to school, or at the very least told to leave them in their lockers or turned off and stored in their backpacks during school hours. However, according to a recent survey conducted by MDR’s EdNET Insight research services for Mimio, what many students are going to hear is, 'Class, turn on your mobile phone; it’s time to learn'. ”

How Common Core Standards Mesh With Education Technology

How Common Core Standards Mesh With Education Technology | Integration of Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"If you're a teacher in the US, you've surely heard of the Common Core Standards, the national academic standards for K-12 schools. While there’s always a lot of mumbling and grumbling when it comes to anyone mandating what should be taught and how to get there, the Common Core Standards have been adopted by 45 of the states, so they’re not exactly something that can be easily ignored. So how do all of the newer, innovative teaching methods and ideas mesh with having to meet certain standards?"

Marc My Words: Back to School – Tablets in the Classroom by Marc J. Rosenberg

Marc My Words: Back to School – Tablets in the Classroom by Marc J. Rosenberg | Integration of Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"It’s September, and time for my back-to-school column focusing on how we can support K-12 education. There’s a strong interest in technology in the classroom, but laptops and netbooks are “so 2010.” Today, it’s the tablet (iPad and its Android brethren; sorry, HP TouchPad). Are tablets a breakthrough technology for education? Yes! Are there concerns that we must address first? Absolutely!"

More Districts Go BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) | Integration of Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"There’s been a fair amount of buzz about schools going “BYOD” – meaning they are allowing students to bring in their own digital devices to use in the classroom. Some schools believe it to be a less-costly way to provide advanced mobile technology to students, and many teachers, particularly in areas of math and science, have found the BYOD infrastructure useful to their lessons."

Using Twitter as a Metacognitive Support Device | Integration of Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"Integrating social media into academia is not a novel idea. And since you are reading this, chances are you probably have been utilizing some feature of social media in the classroom for years. What is more interesting is asking why academia should exploit social media and, more specifically, Twitter."

Using the Kindle Fire in Education – A Solid iPad Alternative

Using the Kindle Fire in Education – A Solid iPad Alternative | Integration of Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"Amazon’s Kindle Fire took off like a rocket when it was introduced, and it is the first tablet that has offered significant competition to the iPad. Kindle Fire is a mini tablet computer and was released late last year with full support from the extensive library that Amazon possesses. With an extensive collection of books, movies, photos, games and apps in their own library, Amazon seems to have found just the right answer for the iPad, given the fact that Kindle Fire costs roughly half of what the iPad costs (depending on configuration)."

Survey: Despite Budget Cuts, Schools Prioritize Technology | Integration of Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"Despite having to contend with deep budget cuts, schools are able to maintain current levels of technology growth, a surprising find from a recent survey by the Software & Information Industry Association. In its annual Vision K-20 Survey, which included 1,600 responders and comparisons over three years of data, SIIA found that education institutions are maintaining their level of investments in each of the five measures of progress: Enterprise Support, 21st Century Tools, Anytime/Anywhere Access, Differentiated Learning, and Assessment Tools."
