    "In four small schools scattered across San Francisco, a data experiment is under way. That is where AltSchool is testing how technology can help teachers maximize their students' learning. Founded two years ago by Max ­Ventilla, a data expert and former head of personalization at Google, AltSchool runs schools filled with data-gathering technology. Information is captured from the moment each student arrives at school and checks in on an attendance app"

DERN Research Review - Young Children on the Internet - 1 views

  •  
    "The use of the internet by younger children, from 0 to 8 years, may have both benefits and risks. Research into how the Internet is used by young children and the effects on children's development is relatively uncommon compared to research about older learners. However, more and more young children are using the Internet yet so little is understood about the impact on their growth and development."

Lessons to be learned from the Ultranet - Did it work? - 1 views

  • it is not perfect. But it did bring home to quite a few teachers that, like it or not, wikis/blogs/twitter/facebook and numerous other learning gems were here to stay
  • Ultranet can take some credit for bringing eLearning into the forefront of educators minds
  •  
    "At its inception, the Ultranet represented the best opportunity for schools to tap into the ground-swell of technology acceptance that was coursing through society during the early/mid 2000′s. Somewhere along the journey, the Ultranet failed to live up to this lofty and ambitious goal."

Annotating the Web with Diigo on the iPad - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education - 3 views

  •  
    But I have discovered another use for Diigo: annotating websites on the iPad. As far as I know, Diigo offers the only means to highlight passages and add annotations to websites from within the iPad's native Safari browser. Diigo does this through the Web Highlighter bookmarklet, which opens up a toolbar that looks like this:

iPads @ school « Tim Kitchen's Blog - 2 views

  • The iPad is not the be all and end all, but it comes close.
  • I believe it won’t be long before we see iPads and equivalent replacing laptops and laptops replacing desktops in schools. The days of the traditional school computer laboratory are numbered.
  •  
    It is important to understand that an iPad is not a laptop replacement. It is also not a shared device, not really suited to a class set however it a wonderful personal asset for teachers and students in the classroom. I've been lucky to have had an iPad now since day 1 in Australia and I'm a big fan of them as a support for teaching and learning. I see the iPad and devices like them being essential companions for students and teachers in the near future.

I've had my iPad for about 8 months now, so I've decided to share my reflections so far on what I like about the iPad, what potential I feel it offers for developing course books and course materials and some of the problems."

    This is an interesting study into the process of evaluating and developing teachers in Australia. The article backs up claims with research and clearly indicates our current review practices are not meeting the needs of teachers.

Ewan McIntosh: iPad Learning for All the Wrong Reasons - 5 views

  •  
    "The iPad itself is a great device -- I love mine and it's changed the nature of computing on our couch. It is the ultimate in personal computing; it is not, as my wife and I have discovered, very good at being a shareable device"
  •  
    Interesting iPad review. Good reason why kids need these tablet computers in the hands, not locked up in school labs or libraries.
