These six very capable Android tablets come at a fraction of the price. By Eugene Kim August 22, 2012 0 CommentsGoogle 1 Share 29 Tweet 18 Submit 9230 Share 0 Pin It 0 EmailPrint It's that dreadful time of year again. Your beach tan is slowly fading and the warm days of carefree existence are quickly slipping away-it's time to get back into the school groove. A shiny tablet, like the New Apple iPad, might help cure those back-to-school blues, but that $500 entry price likely has your student checking account shuddering in fear. The thing is, though, you can get a very capable tablet that lets you watch videos, hit Facebook and Twitter, read books (even textbooks!), and do much mORe, fOR less than half the price of an iPad. The first question is: Do you even need a tablet? The shORt answer is probably not. If your intentions are strictly academic, which, ahem, I'm sure they are, then a simple laptop should do you fine. Tablets lack physical keyboards, have relatively small screens, aren't very good at multitasking, and have limited printer suppORt-all crucial needs fOR the budding scholar. But there's mORe to school than academics. In between all those carbonated beverages, you'll want to unwind with your favORite TV shows, movies, music, and games-and that's exactly where tablets excel. They're lightweight, easy to use, fast and responsive, and perfect fOR media consumption. Plus, there's an ever-growing selection of apps at your disposal to help your tablet do even mORe. There are plenty of cheapo tablets out there, with shoddy builds, aging hardware, and outdated software, but there are also some excellent bar

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning | User Generat... - 2 views

  • Education 3.0 is a connectivist, heutagogical approach to teaching and learning.  The teachers, learners, networks, connections, media, resources, tools create a a unique entity that has the potential to meet individual learners’, educators’, and even societal needs.  Many resources for Education 3.0 are literally freely available for the taking.
  • Most schools are still living within and functioning through an Education 1.0 model.  They are focusing on an essentialist-based curriculum with related ways of teaching and testing.
  • Taking this one step further or from another angle, moving from Education 1.0 to Education 3.0 can be compared to moving from Pedagogy/Essentialism/Instructivism to Heutagogy/Constructivism/Connectivism

  • The heutagogical, connectivist orientation is closely aligned with Education 3.0. In a heutagogical approach to teaching and learning, learners are highly autonomous and self-determined and emphasis is placed on development of learner capacity and capability. The renewed interest in heutagogy is partially due to the ubiquitousness of Web 2.0, and the affordances provided by the technology. With its learner-centered design, Web 2.0 offers an environment that supports a heutagogical approach, most importantly by supporting development of learner-generated content and learner self-directedness in information discovery and in defining the learning path.  Source: http://www.irrodl.org/index.php/irrodl/article/view/1076
  •   In other words, they can engage in self-determined and self-driven learning where they are not only deciding the direction of their learning journey but they can also produce content that adds value and worth to the related content area or field of study.
  • Choosing the Teaching Orientation
  • It should not be as simple as stating that one, as an educator, uses one teaching orientation over another.  Educators need to examine what they are teaching and the population to whom they are teaching.  For example, procedural knowledge such as how to do first aid or fix a car; or a fixed body of knowledge such as human anatomy (for the medical field) or the study of law is typically best taught through a more teacher directed, “pedagogical” style. It becomes teaching with intentionality and strategically using the teaching and learning philosophies and approaches to reach desired outcomes.
  • The Pedagogy of Mobile Learning
  • With the idea that pedagogy is in line with a instructivist-essentialism method of teaching-learning, mobile learning in this category typically falls into the dissemination of content knowledge via apps. 
  • I use a simple criteria to determine their efficacy, “Would the learner choose to use the app if given the choice or use it during his/her free time?
  • Many project-based learning characteristics (authentic, real world problems; networked learning; use of collaborative digital tools) would fit under the category of the andragogy of mobile learning.

  • The Heutagogy of Mobile Learning
  • The learners in a heutagogy of mobile learning environment
  • Determine what they want to learn and develop their own learning objectives
  • Use their own mobile learning devices and technologies to decide how they will learn.
  • Form their own learning communities possibly using social networking tool
  • Utilize the expertise of the educator and other members of their learning communities to suggest and introduce content-related resources.
  • Utilize the expertise of the educator and other members of their learning communities to suggest Web 2.0 and other online tools for that the students could possibly use to demonstrate and produce learning artifacts.
  • Demonstrate their learning through methods and means that work best for them.
  • Take the initiative to seek feedback from the instructor and their peers.  It is their choice to utilize that feedback or not.
  • Forming their Own Interest-Driven Personal Learning Networks (PLNs)
  • Curating

Marie Bjerede, Founder of e-Mergents and Project Manager at Learning Untethered, will discuss how Tzaddi's students shifted towards a greater sense of agency, deeper learning, and more sophisticated achievement. Tzaddi will share how she was able to make bigger shifts in practice towards a "guide on the side" model of teaching and learning that would not have been possible without the Android devices. During the session, they also will describe the practices and policies that drove improved student outcomes.

Apple's Slow But Radical Overhaul Of Education - 0 views

  •  
    The next wave of that impact won't come from iBooks 3 or the new version of iBooks Author, which are both nice, but relatively minor updates. If anything from Tuesday's event will help push digital textbook adoption forward, it's the hardware. Specifically, the iPad Mini. By offering a $329 tablet, Apple suddenly made iPad adoption notably more affordable for cash-strapped school districts. Apple also released the fourth generation 10-inch iPad, which should help drive down the price of the company's older devices as well.
