Internet use in class tied to lower test scores - 31 views

  •  
    "Warning: Surfing the internet in class is now linked to poorer test scores, even among the most intelligent and motivated of students.
    Michigan State University researchers studied laptop use in an introductory psychology course and found the average time spent browsing the web for non-class-related purposes was 37 minutes. Students spent the most time on social media, reading email, shopping for items such as clothes and watching videos."

The Web We Have to Save - Matter - Medium - 18 views

  • , I’ve realized how much the hyperlink has been devalued, almost made obsolete.
  • Nearly every social network now treats a link as just the same as it treats any other object — the same as a photo, or a piece of text — instead of seeing it as a way to make that text richer. You’re encouraged to post one single hyperlink and expose it to a quasi-democratic process of liking and plussing and hearting: Adding several links to a piece of text is usually not allowed. Hyperlinks are objectivized, isolated, stripped of their powers.
  • Fewer users are directly checking dedicated webpages, instead getting fed by a never-ending flow of information that’s picked for them by complex –and secretive — algorithms.

    "To cognitive neuroscientists, Handscombe's experience is the subject of great fascination and growing alarm. Humans, they warn, seem to be developing digital brains with new circuits for skimming through the torrent of information online. This alternative way of reading is competing with traditional deep reading circuitry developed over several millennia."

Why Teachers Matter More in a Flipped Classroom - jonbergmann.com - 53 views

  • Teaching is fundamentally about human interactions and that can’t be replaced by technology.
  • The simple act of removing the direct instruction (lecture) from the whole group changes the dynamic of the room and allows the teacher to personalize and individualize the learning for each student. Each student gets his/her own education which is tailored to his/her needs.  Instead of a one size fits all education-each student gets just what they need when they need it.

How 3 Different Generations Use The Internet - Edudemic - 88 views

  •  
    "The web is filled with videos, social media chatter, and more resources than your brain can handle. Who is putting all that stuff online? According to a new study on internet usage by different generations, all the content on the web may be coming from some unexpected places."

#SID2014 - "Net children go mobile" | eLearning Island - 13 views

  •  
    My thoughts on normalising the use of social media in schools in the context of Safer Internet Day 2014 "This reality has yet to sink-in, in most schools where dealing with the safer-internet means presenting an anti-cyber bullying campaign rather than a positive pro-social media approach. Many children have a smart-device near at hand - the immediacy if this must be normalised within the process of teaching, learning and play as a tool for research, creation and communication rather than a device that necessarily leads to meanness."
