10-major-mobile-learning-trends-to-watch-for!

10-major-mobile-learning-trends-to-watch-for! | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Technology has been used in the classroom for decades now. But with the advent of cloud computing and the proliferation of smaller, more portable computers and Internet-capable devices, it’s now possible to bring the classroom into the technology instead. Mobile learning focuses on learning through mobile devices, allowing learners to move about in a classroom or remotely learn from any location of their choice. The movement has gained a lot of steam in recent years, and despite some criticisms, isn’t likely to fade fast – especially as new technologies that make mobile learning more practical continue to emerge. While the applications of mobile learning are growing all the time, some of the major trends are highlighted here, showing the changes in how we teach, learn and interact in educational environments.

Learning with 'e's: Getting the bloggers to write

Learning with 'e's: Getting the bloggers to write | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Steve Wheeler makes a great point here!

 

"One of the perennial problems teachers face, especially in early years education, is trying to get children to write....But several schools are beginning to address this 'won't write' problem by making it entertaining and productive through the use of social media. In an article entitled Could blogging be the key to raising a generation of great writers? Liz Dwyer argues for creating audiences online for children to write for"

 

It is my view that blogging is equally useful in the HE space especially if it is incorporated into learning activities that are assessed and embedded into the course/module curriculum.

Technology Integration Matrix (TIM)

Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) was developed to help guide the complex task of evaluating technology integration in the classroom. The TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments: active, constructive, goal directed (i.e., reflective), authentic, and collaborative (Jonassen, Howland, Moore, & Marra, 2003). The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells as illustrated on this site - really useful in illustrating how teachers can use tech to enhance learning. The TIM site offers a richness in resources too.

Kleinspiration: Guest Post: How to Turn Passive PowerPoints into Interactive Lectures by: Chris Machielse

Kleinspiration: Guest Post: How to Turn Passive PowerPoints into Interactive Lectures by: Chris Machielse | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

In many circles, slideshows are notorious for so-called “Death by PowerPoint.” The same criticism is applied everywhere from corporate boardrooms to classrooms. For many students, PowerPoint is synonymous with uninspiring lectures, and therefore passive learning.

To create more interactive teaching sessions, this site makes some suggestions:

1. Instant assessment and student response systems

2. Making Q&A a two-way street with the backchannel

3. Monitor comprehension
