Learnhive, an Adaptive K-12 Learning Solutions Provider, raises $400K from Angel investors

Learnhive, an Adaptive K-12 Learning Solutions Provider, raises $400K from Angel investors | Tech + MUN = O-MUN | Scoop.it
Learnhive's Personal Concept Tutor provides individualized learning for K-12 students, and can be accessed via any browser, or downloaded for free from Apple, Android or Windows 8 app stores. Funding boosts offerings for U.S.
Lisa Martin's insight:

So I don't get how the first paragraph of this article meshes with drill and kill and worksheets?

 

Students must be able to have structured conversations with their peers and teachers in a collaborative environment, in order to gain an in-depth understanding of any subject. At the same time, the teacher has the challenge to cover the prescribed syllabus topics within a particular year. So in the process, it is not practically possible where the individual learning needs, especially remedial or advanced, can be met by the overall classroom experience.

Princeton-based LearnHive manages to do exactly what the classroom experience cannot....etc

 

 

What am I missing?

Digital Literacy: Find Free (and Legal) Images for Your Classroom

Digital Literacy: Find Free (and Legal) Images for Your Classroom | Tech + MUN = O-MUN | Scoop.it

"The Internet has made a myriad of material readily available to a vast audience. Along with these seemingly infinite resources  has come a lot of confusion about how images and other content published online should be legally recognized, protected or used. As educators, we often struggle in navigating that road."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 30, 2013 9:55 PM

Our students often go to Google or Bing to find images for their work...but they do not always know how to find images that are open source. This post provides many resources that you might use with students, as well as a story about what may happen if a student uses an image that is under copyright. 

Bijal Damani's curator insight, April 30, 2013 11:26 PM

The 6 Key Drivers of Student Engagement -- THE Journal | Tech + MUN = O-MUN | Scoop.it

We believe that relevant, personalized, collaborative, and connected learning experiences enhance student engagement, which in turn drives student achievement. Although these learning experiences were available in a more limited way before the advent of technology, digital conversion has taken them to an entirely new level.

#mightybell the best #startup #cuation tool to collaborate with #pln #COP2SMILE | Tech + MUN = O-MUN | Scoop.it

Mightybell is now my favorite Curation tool to collaborate eSafety with PLN and for this reason I want to use this tool / curation platform to collaborate in Smile Project . This is about infusing passion and color into everyday life. Too often, we spend time on what we have to do, not what we want to do. We’ve lost the ability to follow what makes us curious, in favor of choosing what makes us more efficient.With Mightybell, you can step into a world of curiosity and serendipity. By making space for ideas, interests and adventures with friends, you’re embracing the opportunity to create a more colorful life. Each Mightybell space has a story, one you can share with as many likeminded people as you want. You can share : a question, an article, a link, a video or a photo about something that interests you is all you need to start a Mightybell space. After all, you never know when you’ll discover your next passion.

Teachers, Youth, and Social Media: Experiments | DMLcentral | Tech + MUN = O-MUN | Scoop.it

While young people are often adept at navigating networked spaces for social purposes in their everyday lives, it is less clear what role schools and teachers should play in that process. In what ways can educators support, mentor, and scaffold youth’s navigation of online spaces to foster rich learning experiences and ethical communication practices?

An interesting article and video. Considering that Social Media as a platform has the potential to be a multi-sensorial learning experience, it certainly seems like a value-add for learners who face learning difficulties in the traditional modeof learning.

 

Drora Arussy's curator insight, May 1, 2013 7:50 AM

Yet another way that good teaching practice is evolving and must be incorporated. It is up to the teachers to direct, facilitate and navigate, technology does not educate, teachers do.
