Teachers embrace social media in class - 0 views

  •  
    As social media become nearly inescapable on college campuses, a pair of recently published studies supports what many professors already have concluded: Students using Facebook or text messaging during a lecture tend to do worse when quizzed later. But wait: Faculty who build Twitter into classwork may be helping students learn better, a 2010 study suggests.

Mobility Shifts :: Conference - 0 views

    This event wasn't even on my radar, sorry to have missed it. Did anyone from PSU attend? Two of the themes align closely with this year's Summer Camp (classrooms & globalization).

ZOMBIES, RUN! Running game & audio adventure for iOS/Android by Six to Start and Naomi ... - 1 views

  •  
    "Zombies, Run! is an ultra-immersive game for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android where you help rebuild civilisation after a zombie apocalypse. By going out and running in the real world, you can collect medicine, ammo, batteries, and spare parts that you can use to build up and expand your base - all while getting orders, clues, and story through your headphones."
  •  
    Interesting concept: you play this game by running in the real world. The app tracks your run, but also unlocks items (ammo, vitamins, medical supplies). When you're done, you get to distribute those supplies throughout your city. During the run, there is an interactive experience where you're being chased by zombies and getting instructions through your headset. They're releasing this next year. I'll definitely try it out.

    "Zohra Guisse, a lecturer in French and Arabic at Penn State Berks, is one of 11 faculty members selected across the University to participate in Penn State's Mobile Media Pilot program. The program, an initiative of the Penn State Media Commons, will explore how mobile devices can be used in students' media production workflow."

    Some ideas for using iPads in a classroom. Many of them are focused on elementary school, but there are a few golden nuggets in the mix.

About - App Inventor for Android - 2 views

  •  
    "App Inventor for Android
    Create apps for your phone!

    Creating an App Inventor app begins in your browser, where you design how the app will look. Then, like fitting together puzzle pieces, you set your app's behavior. All the while, through a live connection between your computer and your phone, your app appears on your phone."

    Video on this site shows an interface that reminds me of Authorware back in the day - drag and drop visual programming. Could be an interesting part of a student programming project or our work with Jansen. I wonder if something like this exists for the iOS.
  •  
    I had some people in my class play around with this last spring, it seems straightforward (if you own an Android phone, which limited most of my students). I showed this to the faculty running the Erie game certificate program, and they were trying to figure out a way they might expose students to it to build some games. Certainly simplifies mobile, entry-level app development.
  •  
    Thanks. Getting started on a new platform can be daunting, but an early success like this could spark interest in mobile app development.

    Page put together by Justin Miller listing the apps that the students on the student technology advisory committee will be using. Good collection of tools for other purposes.

Penn State Live - Garden of delights: The Arboretum at Penn State - 1 views

  •  
    A project out of College of Ed that ETS collaborated on.  This group created some augmented reality apps for the iPod and iPad to help young students (I believe 3rd or 4th grade) learn about their natural environment, in particular how to identify trees.  Pretty cool stuff.
  •  
    "During the event, faculty and staff led children through a variety of hands-on learning stations. For example, Zimmerman, along with Associate Professor of Education Susan Land and a team of six education graduate students, led a station titled, "Tree Investigators," in which they used iPads and iPods (provided by Penn State's Educational Technology Services) to give the kids an in-depth lesson on how to identify trees.

    "We used iPads to figure out what type of tree we were planting," said Collin Wayne, a student from Park Forest Elementary School, who attended the event. "We were in groups and we used a tree-finder app. You take a picture of a symbol and it tells you about the tree.""
  •  
    Penn State Live article about a College of Education project. Elementary school students used iPads and iPod Touches to interact with data about trees in the arboretum. We talked with Susan Land and Heather Zimmerman about the project and helped out by loaning them some equipment. Future partnerships with them are in the works.
