College requirements: Notebooks, textbooks and iPads? | MLive.com - 0 views

  •  
    Mandatory: an iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad (I would argue a tablet in general). "It's getting to the point where there are a number of professions students are going into where knowing how to use technology is required." The article notes "many technology trends become mandatory over time. Today's college students are expected to participate in online forums, e-mail professors and submit papers electronically."

Georgia Tech Invokes FERPA, Cripples School's Wikis - 0 views

  •  
    Does FERPA ban schools from allowing students to post their schoolwork on the open Web? Yesterday, Georgia Tech deleted all student history and participation from the school's "Swikis," the wikis that students use for their coursework. Georgia Tech has been using wikis for this purpose since 1997, pioneering the usage of the collaborative tools for undergraduate education. One of the features of the school's wikis was that they allowed for cross-course and cross-semester communication. You could, should you choose, remain in a wiki for a class you'd taken previously, for example.

LiveMinutes - 0 views

    Live Minutes is a new service offering free hosting for webinars. It takes less than thirty seconds to set-up a webinar on Live Minutes. To get started just click "start sharing" and a meeting space is created for you. That meeting space is assigned a URL that you can share with the people you want to join you.

    Live Minutes offers a good selection of tools that you can utilize to share ideas with others. You can talk to each other using either the Live Minutes audio or by connecting through Skype. Live Minutes offers a collaborative whiteboard for drawing. Uploading images and documents for others to see and comment on is also an option. And in the future Live Minutes will allow you to share videos during your webinar.


    Applications for Education
    Live Minutes could be a great way to quickly host a live online tutoring session with students. The option for drawing free-hand on the whiteboard could be very handy for illustrating concepts that are difficult to type quickly on a keyboard or that lose meaning when someone is just explaining rather than showing.

    Includes a comparison chart (Diigo, Delicious, Browser) and a high level overview of Diigo (including screenshots).

Not only can students bookmark, organize, and collaborate on various projects and research, but this service gives them - and teachers - the opportunity to organize and manage web resources and documents. Diigo has useful educational applications, as well, such as organizing bookmarks for resources and research, collaborative learning, and professional development."

How Khan Academy Is Changing the Rules of Education | Magazine - 0 views

  •  
    Khan Academy - hadn't heard of this before but I LOVE the way instructors are using this to "flip" the classroom.  Using these short videos to deliver the content (lecture) and using the class time to do the homework where students can receive the help they might need.

Twitter in the Classroom: Watch This Teacher Engage Shy Students in Learning History - ... - 1 views

  •  
    " A recent survey of almost 2,000 teachers found that half think that using Twitter (and Facebook) in the classroom "is harmful to the learning experience." But, Los Angeles history teacher Enrique Legaspi disagrees with the naysayers. Last year he went to a workshop that discussed ways to use Twitter in teaching and now his students-even the shy ones-at Hollenbeck Middle School in East L.A. are speaking up more."
