Teacher Reboot Camp

In my book, The 30 Goals Challenge for Teachers , I encourage teachers to reflect on the way they assess their students for Goal 17: Re-evaluate Value.

Neo LMS

Everywhere we go, here and there, people always seem to have a mobile device in their hands, be it a smartphone or a tablet. It’s almost a sin not to own a mobile device. Our mobile devices are online 24/7. Put that in the context of learning and what do you get? Mobile learning of course. Mobile learning is now a movement and it’s not just about picking up a tablet and off you go.

Edsurge

When Massive Open Online Courses (or MOOCs) were first introduced, people quickly realized these platforms could help students learn more effectively at their own pace on their own schedule. This development, combined with tremendous growth in mobile device usage due to improved technology, naturally led to a shift in mobile learning patterns. Despite this promising beginning, the role of mobile devices in the classroom and in education overall is still rather limited.

A Principal's Reflections

As devices have become more affordable over the years, parents have bestowed a variety of mobile technologies upon their children. The potential is there for schools and educators to empower students to take more ownership of their learning.

Stop asking whether laptops improve learning outcomes

eSchool News

But really, the question is superficial and shows a limited understanding of what is needed to enhance teaching and learning using technology.
