90 VR Education Apps for Vive, Rift and WMR – Immersive Learning News

90 VR Education Apps for Vive, Rift and WMR – Immersive Learning News | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it
When it comes to locating educational content for a PC-powered VR headset like a Vive, Rift or WMR, it can be a little tricky for three main reasons:
1. There are multiple app stores to find content and some of the content can only be found in certain app stores.

2. Not all the stores have an easy to find Education section.

3. Some content which would be great in the classroom isn’t actually tagged as educational.

5 examples of EdTech usage to help universities connect their students | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

Go back 20 years from now and one would have never complained about the flaws existing in the traditional education system as economy rolled out quite easily, societal need for drastic change was nimble and it could well meet the expectations of the world.

Nelda Reyes's curator insight, January 27, 8:03 PM
This article i really enjoyed and found very resourceful.  It gave ideas and social media that you can use in the classroom and in ways that i hadn't even taught about.  A few are like Facebook to poll the class not only for communication purposes.  Also to post assignments and collaborative work.  Snap-chat for students whom are interested in publication or reporting careers, snap-chat is excellent for that,  and of course for vocabulary lessons.  Utilizing EdTech to show how other students express their feelings on various topics.  overall this article was very useful and informative to me as an educator.

Teachers talk Literacy Skills for a Digital World

Teachers talk Literacy Skills for a Digital World | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

Today, digital natives are both consuming and creating online or on their mobile phones constantly, and the literacy skills needed for an interconnected world have changed. They include the ability to navigate thousands of sources, locate quality information, evaluate fact from fiction, synthesize, and create and communicate perspectives in the appropriate way to diverse audiences.

To what extent are the literacy skills required for a new world more or less the same as they were before? Will new literate practices need to be generated and if so, what are these new literacies and how can they be learned?

Online Learning vs Face to Face Learning

Online Learning vs Face to Face Learning | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

Recent research from the likes of Bersin by Deloitte, Fosway and many more revealed the learning habits of modern professionals in 2018. The results paint a picture of employees adapting to cope with the fast pace of modern working life. They are often busy and overwhelmed but still keen to learn; they value high quality content that’s personalized and relevant to their needs; and they are getting increasingly impatient and turned off by content and experiences that isn’t high value, relevant, and available when they want it.

Will online ever conquer Higher Ed?

Will online ever conquer Higher Ed? | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

The latest data on the nation’s college and university enrollment shows that online is steadily climbing its way up to more than a third of the student population—as face-to-face continues to plummet. That’s a surprising turn in the long-time arc of academic population growth.

If online weren’t in the picture, on-campus enrollments, as reported in the most recent U.S. Department of Education 2016 results, would have fallen by more than 1.5 million between 2012 and 2016, says Jeff Seaman, co-director of the Babson Survey Research Group, who has been tracking the country’s virtual education lifeline for 15 years. “Without digital, higher ed would be in far worse shape than it is now,” he adds. “Distance ed is saving higher ed.”

A new research hub on the Use of Technology in Education in developing countries

A new research hub on the Use of Technology in Education in developing countries | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

Given the lack of rigorous evidence to guide related decision making, a big investment in educational technologies has in many ways been the true ‘faith-based initiative’ in many education systems over the past two decades. While there are still gaping holes in our collective knowledge base about what works, and what doesn’t, related to many uses of ‘edtech’, we (thankfully) know substantially more today than we did even a few years ago.

Such knowledge doesn’t come a moment too soon! While estimates about the size of national and regional edtech markets can vary widely, depending on how one chooses to define the term and whose white papers you choose to believe, there is no denying that this stuff is (for better or for worse, depending on your perspective) big business around the world – and growing bigger. It’s important to note that big investments in educational technologies aren’t only happening in places like the United States or South Korea, Germany or China or Australia. The emails that land each week in my in-box are testament to just how widespread a phenomenon this has become:
