From Distraction to Learning Tool: Mobile Devices in the Classroom

Isto não é bem um artigo, mas vale a pena ler. A ideia e o conceito associado permitem uma boa reflexão sobre o uso dos tablets em sala de aula.

From Distraction to Learning Tool: Mobile Devices in the Classroom

Once banned in the classroom, mobile devices are becoming more accepted as a teaching and learning tool.

Moocs - artigo para principiantes

Um excelente artigo de Terry Anderson...

MOOCs and Distance Education Institutions

A few months ago I was asked to do a short piece for the Commonwealth of Learning on MOOCs. It is posted on their web site, but I thought I would post it here as well, with some small updates.

The New York Times declared 2012 to be the year of the MOOC (Pappano, 2012) and certainly 2013 is becoming the year to talk about MOOCs! Questions related to the design and inherent pedagogies, registration numbers, persistence rates, revenue models, neo-liberal agenda, fears and aspirations of all of us in postsecondary education have been ignited by this combination of technology and pedagogy. MOOCs are rapidly becoming the type of disruptive technology described by Christensen (1997) as cheaper, smaller, initially less fully featured and attracting a new set of consumers into an existing market.

31 digital skills para professores do Sec. XXI

É sempre aterrorizador ter alguém que me diga que eu devo ter 31 competencias digitais para ser professor Hoje... Afinal estamos no Sec XXI.
Mas uma leitura rápida a este texto de Med Kharbach talvez nos faça sentir mais confiantes. Não estamos assim tão longe disso.
Boa leitura!, JL

Every single teacher is concerned about his/ her teaching practices and the skills involved in this process. How many times have you wondered about a better way to teach the same lesson you have delivered to an eariler class? How often have you used technology to engage your students and improve their learning ? These are some recurring questions we keep regurgitating each time our teaching skills are put to the test.

It is amazing how technology has changed the whole world giving rise to new forms of education we never thought of. Our students are more digitally focused than any time before. They spend more time interacting with their mobile devices than they do with their parents or close relatives. Admittedly, this digital boom has both positive and negative impact on our students. Lack of concentration, short attention span, distraction, visual stimulus overload, identity theft, lack of real world socializing, privacy issues, depression, and many more are but a direct result of the growing exposure to this technology. Studies have even proved that multitasking, which some educational technology experts brag about in relation to the use of today's technology, reduces the power of our concentration to the half. We should not, However, only look at the empty side of the cup, the other side is way bigger.
