What's Coming in Sakai 11? Find out now!

What's Coming in Sakai 11? Find out now! | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it
Durham Tech was lucky to get Neal Caidin, the Sakai Community Coordinator, to provide a workshop about what's coming up right around the corner (there's a 50/50 chance Sakai 11 will be ready May 2016, but don't quote anyone on that estimate).
Becky Roehrs's insight:

We have Sakai 2.9 (open source LMS), so I'm excited about the great enhancements that are coming with Sakai 11:

  • User friendly improvements: full student dashboard
  • Responsive design: device friendly LMS
  • Improved accessibility (even more than previously)

Lindsay Sprague's curator insight, January 29, 2015 9:16 PM

Cool!  I'm an English teacher, and anything that helps to promote literacy and exposure to new and interesting texts gets an A in my book.

Tina Jameson's curator insight, February 5, 2015 10:57 PM

Choose a theme - choose a discussion question - choose a text.

Open-source resources offering a great range for primary through to year 12 students.

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, February 11, 2015 2:07 PM

These texts can be downloaded and are aimed at varying literacy levels. The topics are broad and can be used to promote critical thinking. In an ELT context they could be used to form the basis of discussions. The text worksheets also contain questions to encourage reflection and debate.
