THE FUTURE OF MOBILE LEARNING | eCampus Students - 0 views

  •  
    As mobile technology continues to permeate every facet of society, the mantra of today's youth seems to be "Make it Mobile!" With this influx of technology it will be interesting to see how the classroom looks 5, 10, 15 years down the road. Do you have any predictions?

    The battle against copyright is only the beginning... the war will be over how much we understand and care about computers themselves and the kinds of "spyware" they run to lock us out of our own property... (I'm looking at you iPad)

Actually Going to Class? How 20th-Century. - Technology - The Chronicle of Higher Educa... - 0 views

    Interesting to think how this relates to primary and secondary education.... not just tertiary.....
    "In an era when students can easily grab material online, including lectures by gifted speakers in every field, a learning environment that avoids courses completely-or seriously reshapes them-might produce a very effective new form of college.
    That was the provocative notion posed here recently by Randy Bass, executive director of Georgetown University's Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship, during the annual meeting of the Educause Learning Initiative.
    He pointed out that much of what students rate as the most valuable part of their learning experience at college these days takes place outside the traditional classroom, citing data from the National Survey of Student Engagement, an annual study based at Indiana University at Bloomington. Four of the eight "high-impact" learning activities identified by survey participants required no classroom time at all: internships, study-abroad programs, senior thesis or other "capstone" projects, or the mundane-sounding "undergraduate research," meaning working with faculty members on original research, much as graduate students do."

The Test Tube -- David Suzuki -- NFB/interactive - National Film Board of Canada - 0 views

  •  
    David Suzuki explains exponential growth in a fascinating way -- and relates it to resources and Earth -- The film starts out with everyone watching being asked how they would spend one extra minute.  At the end of the film, you then get to see how everyone answered... Excellent but depressing (if we are in the last minute (so to speak)) if it's too late for science to save us...

21 Things That Will Become Obsolete in Education by 2020 - THE DAILY RIFF - edustange's... - 0 views

  • 1. Desks
    The 21st century does not fit neatly into rows. Neither should your students. Allow the network-based concepts of flow, collaboration, and dynamism help you rearrange your room for authentic 21st century learning.

    2. Language Labs
    Foreign language acquisition is only a smartphone away. Get rid of those clunky desktops and monitors and do something fun with that room.

    3. Computers
    Ok, so this is a trick answer. More precisely this one should read: 'Our concept of what a computer is'. Because computing is going mobile and over the next decade we're going to see the full fury of individualized computing via handhelds come to the fore. Can't wait.
