re Teacherkit - it was advised to us to use it and we used it for about 2 to 3 weeks as a whole staff. Following lost of data and keyboard not working - a lot of freezes - we contacted Teacherkit to see if there was some bug. We got no reply to email, tweets... We finally got a reply via twitter when someone recommended Teacherkit and I said I had reservation. At that stage we had moved to Idoceo (paid app) but if you have a question, you get an answer within 24 hours . Teacherkit asked if I culd be skyped etc... at that stage it was too late. Last week, 4 weeks later, I got an email saying they had got my email about my problems and it has been logged and they will be in touch. I d rather they had a pay version so that the bugs could be fixed quicker.

What is Education 3.0

Education 3.0 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

may not meet Wikipedia's general notability guideline . reliable, secondary sources about the topic. If notability cannot be established, the article is likely to be merged, redirected, or deleted. (September 2009)

Education 3.0 is a term that has been used to describe a level of transformative capabilities and practices for education in the 21st century.

 

Professor Derek Keats, of the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa,[1] and his co-author Jan Philipp Schmidt, FreeCourseWare Manager at University of the Western Cape, South Africa, used the term in 2007 to apply to the use and impact on education of collaborative and personalized learning, reusable learning content, and recognition of prior learning (RPL) whether by formal or informal means.

 

Keats' explorations were focused on higher education.[2] Dr. John Moravec at the University of Minnesota broadens this view, and describes Education 3.0 as a product necessary to support what he labels "Society 3.0" - a near future paradigm of social co-constructivism, ambient technology, and propelled by continuous innovation at all levels of society.[3]
