Gingko App - For collaborative writing

Gingko App - For collaborative writing | Technology | Scoop.it

Since Gingko is tree-based, one person can work on the overall organization, while a second is writing the main points of a particular section, and a third is taking those points and fleshing them out in a subsection.

Very good app for long documents. You could work in a 3 tree level, allowing you to conect between levels, add links, pics, etc... quite user-friendly.

The 21st-Century Digital Learner

The 21st-Century Digital Learner | Technology | Scoop.it

After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 24, 2013 5:27 PM

Just as speaking is the outcome of listening, so writing is the outcome of reading, not the other way round. Listening to the student should also include "listening" to their writing. ie., analyse what they are saying and how they are doing it.  When students evaluate their own work, the teacher should listen and guide them to ways of improving it, whether it be punctuation, paragraphing, spelling, or word or subject knowledge.  This is how we bring students on board and empower them to learn. 

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:49 PM

Listening to students has two aspects; listening to what they say orally, and 'listening' to their writing which is only another way of talking, only through a code. Just as learning to speak is tied closely to listening to what is said and being exposed to words that help one to think better, so writing is the same  and relies on reading "or listening" to what others say and how they say it to express clear meaning. The two subjects, reading and writing, are closlely intertwined yet we compartmentalize them in the literacy curriculum. An example of adults thinking they know what is best for children.

What does it mean to be a digital native?

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, September 11, 2013 12:00 PM

The term digital native is an oversimplication and is not overly accurate. Research in Australia and England are showing power users in undergrad programs make up about 14% of the students. What about the rest? One thing about Prensky's work is he does acknowledge that technology has to fit with school and learning in an integrated manner.

 

As I read the article, I realized this concerns about the pace of technology have been with us for some time, perhaps since time began. Hannah Arendt argued the pace of technology had outpaced our ability to speak about it coherently in the 1950's.

Nowadays, though, Twitter has clamped down hard. Spammy techniques will get you banished quickly. And most of those old grey-hat methods don't even work: Twitter has radically limited how many people you can follow, as well as how many you can follow each hour.
