3 Inevitable Changes Coming To A Classroom Near You | Modern World: Communication & Media | Scoop.it

"It’s hard to read the tea leaves of education technology. You never really know what the classroom of the upcoming year will look like in terms of technology. Will iPads be all the rage? Will videoconferencing replace face-to-face office hours? Would a smartphone app be the new way to turn in homework? Who knows?"

Doing The Impossible: Helpful Tool Lets You Track And Assess Mobile Learning

Doing The Impossible: Helpful Tool Lets You Track And Assess Mobile Learning | Modern World: Communication & Media | Scoop.it

"Technology is ubiquitous and so is its phantom. It has become a major guiding force in the training and education field with the advent of E-Learning and Mobile Learning. Of course, the journey hasn’t been as smooth as we imagine it to be. It has evolved over a period of time and is still overcoming the road bumps. In fact, formal learning being the fundamental milestone for centuries, it has ingrained into our society. This makes adaptation of eLearning and mLearning per se inflexible. Mobile learning is struggling to get a fair chance. The challenges are plentiful and so are the solutions but are we open to them."

The Unsexy But Important Thing To Consider With iPads In The Classroom

The Unsexy But Important Thing To Consider With iPads In The Classroom | Modern World: Communication & Media | Scoop.it

"It’s no secret. Everyone and their mother wants an iPad. Apple sells one like every other second 24 hours a day… 7 days a week. Everyone seems to want to be able to deploy an armada of iPads to harness the power of the tablet. But the expense is more than just the initial purchase price of the iPads. In fact, you could double or even triple that cost if you don’t secure your iPads properly."

Organize, Share and Discuss Valuable Learning Resources Into Cloudscapes

Organize, Share and Discuss Valuable Learning Resources Into Cloudscapes | Modern World: Communication & Media | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Cloudscapes are collections of "clouds" about a certain topic. A "cloud" can be anything of relevance to learning and teaching clike an essay, a presentation, a resource, tool or event.

 

A cloudscape is therefore a user-driven collection of learning materials/resources pulled together for a specific need.

 

A cloudscape contains multiple elements:

1) Content - the actual text content

2) Cloudstream - tracking all the editing activities in the collection

3) Clouds - individual information objects

4) related Tweets

5) an RSS feed

6) a discussion area

 

Cloudworks, the platform where cloudscapes are born, is an open repository of educational and learning materials that motivates participants to share, find and discuss learning and teaching ideas.

 

Although the word "curation" is never used on the site or in the related documentation, this is yet another example of how the convergence of open repositories, open content and sharing platforms like this one, provide a natural and fertile ground for spontaneous curation approaches.

 

On this platform users can create topical learning collections by bringing together a selected set of existing content resources.

 

 

Cloudworks is developed by the Institute of Educational Technology at The Open University in the UK and it is part of the Open University Learning Design Initiative (OULDI) project.
