Exploring the Changing Social Contexts of Learning - The Learner's Way - 4 views

  •  
    Understanding how mobile, global and virtual social networks influence our interpretation of socio-cultural theories of learning might allow us to better understand the interplay of settings and contexts within which learning occurs and in doing so better understand how learning may be facilitated.

Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation? - The Atlantic - 11 views

  •  
    ne day last summer, around noon, I called Athena, a 13-year-old who lives in Houston, Texas. She answered her phone-she's had an iPhone since she was 11-sounding as if she'd just woken up. We chatted about her favorite songs and TV shows, and I asked her what she likes to do with her friends. "We go to the mall," she said. "Do your parents drop you off?," I asked, recalling my own middle-school days, in the 1980s, when I'd enjoy a few parent-free hours shopping with my friends. "No-I go with my family," she replied. "We'll go with my mom and brothers and walk a little behind them. I just have to tell my mom where we're going. I have to check in every hour or every 30 minutes."

3 Strategies For Teaching Digital Wellness In Higher Education - 14 views

  •  
    Every semester, professor Dr. Josie Ahlquist challenges her Leadership in the Digital Age students at Florida State University with a unique task. "Unplug from social-based platforms for 7 days," she says to a class of hesitant college students. Allowing room for negotiation, Dr. Ahlquist has seen her challenges run for as few as two days and as many as seven, and she requests that students document their experience throughout. The results showcase a facinating journey of self-discovery and reflection as these students shed social media for the duration of the challenge.

Independent Learning for Pupils & Teachers - 7 views

    "Learning is class or as a staff is great. The learner is guided through the process by expert educators to reach a new goal together. But not everyone is going in the same direction, so it is important to have the skills, ambition and discipline to learn independently."

Best easy tools and services for fast video creation - 41 views

  •  
    Creating a video doesn't have to be expensive or time-consuming. You don't even need to hire a production team.

    There are plenty of useful tools and services that can help you create a video fast. Good news is many of them are free.

    Today, we'll be focusing on the ones that are the easiest to use. We'll assume that you haven't used similar tools before, or that you don't have the time to read a thick user manual.

    Before we get started, though, don't forget that scripting your video can itself speed up the creation process. A script may take a bit of time to create, but it gives you a clear direction.

Dyslexia: When spelling problems impair writing acquisition - 11 views

  •  
    "Dyslexia is a learning difficulty which affects the ability to adopt the automatic reflexes needed to read and write. Several studies have sought to identify the source of the problems encountered by individuals with dyslexia when they read. Little attention, however, has been paid to the mechanisms involved in writing. Sonia Kandel, Professor at the GIPSA-Lab of the Université Grenoble Alpes (CNRS/Université Grenoble Alpes/Grenoble INP) and her team [1] decided to look at the purely motor aspects of writing in children diagnosed with dyslexia. Their results show that orthographic processing in children with dyslexia is so laborious that it can modify or impair writing skills, despite the absence of dysgraphia in these children. The findings of this study are published in the November 2017 edition of Cognitive Neuropsychology."
