Investigación sobre la creación y diseño de Escenarios de Aprendizaje con TIC By .@juandoming. Estudio: Aplicaciones móviles. Mientras nosotros nos debatimos si es iOS o Android la plataforma más usada, si Symbian debe morir o si BlackBerry quiere pero no puede, y hablamos a diario del rampante mercado de las aplicaciones móviles...parece ser que de los usuarios adultos de smartphones en Estados Unidos, sólo el 35% tiene apps en sus teléfonos, y de estos sólo el 24% de hecho las usa, y un 11% de los norteamericanos adultos ni siquiera sabe si su teléfono puede ejecutar apps.
Esto es lo que revela el más reciente estudio sobre uso de móviles del Pew Internet & American Life Project publicado hoy. ¿Para qué un smartphone si no van a usar aplicaciones? Me pregunto yo.

Employers confirm: e-learning integral for employee training. Employers confirm: e-learning integral for employee training Employers Australia-wide have confirmed that e-learning is now entrenched as a tool for employee training, according to the 2010 Employer E-learning Benchmarking Survey Draft Report released today.
The survey, conducted by the Australian Flexible Learning Framework (Framework), found that half (50%) of all Australian businesses are now using e-learning to provide flexible, timely and efficient employee training (up from 40% in 2009). It also found that employers’ awareness, knowledge and use of e-learning is steadily increasing: Employers’ attitudes towards e-learning were overwhelmingly positive, with the majority reporting that e-learning increases access to training (88%), is a flexible training option for employees (85%) and is an efficient way for employees to undertake training (75%).
Pew Internet Report: 7/10 usuarios adultos de Internet (69%) la usan para ver y descargar vídeos. Technology linked to happiness, study claims. 12 May 2010Last updated at 09:38 Social media and mobile phones were highly valued.
There are positive links between access to technology and feelings of well-being, a study claims. BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, analysed the results of a survey of 35,000 people around the world. Access to communication devices was found to be the most valued. It found that women in developing countries, and people of both sexes with low incomes or poor education, were most influenced emotionally by their access to technology.
It is partly because women tend to have a more central role in family and other social networks, said researcher Paul Flatters of Trajectory Partnership, which conducted the research on behalf of the BCS. "Our hypothesis is that women in developing countries benefit more because they are more socially constrained in society," he added. "The next phase of our research is to test that.

May 27, 2010 By: Mary Bart in EdTech News and Trends College students who abstained from using media for 24 hours describe their feelings in terms more commonly associated with drug and alcohol addictions: Withdrawal, Frantically craving, Very anxious, Extremely antsy, Miserable, Jittery, Crazy.
A new study from the International Center for Media & the Public Agenda (ICMPA) at the University of Maryland, concludes that most college students are not just unwilling, but functionally unable to be without their media links to the world. The ICMPA study, “24 Hours: Unplugged,” asked 200 students at the College Park campus to give up all media for 24 hours. After their 24 hours of abstinence, the students were then asked to blog on private class websites about their experiences.
“We were surprised by how many students admitted that they were ‘incredibly addicted’ to media,” noted the project director Susan D. Kids More Likely to Own a Cellphone Than a Book, Study Finds. As technology becomes more a part of our day-to-day lives, some are worried that it is stunting the education of children by taking away time from activities like reading.
A startling discovery from the London-based National Literacy Trust finds that children are more likely these days to own a cell phone than they are a book. The study, which NLT will publish next week, ties cell phone penetration to the presence of books in a child's home, but are these conclusions fair to draw? A survey of 17,000 U.K. children between the ages of 7 and 16 found that while 86% owned a cell phone, only 73% said they owned a book. The NLT believes a child's access to books has a direct effect on their reading ability, finding that 80% of children reading at their expect levels have their own books.
Conversely, the same can only be said for just 58% of children not reading up to par with their age group. La interacción en línea tiene efectos positivos en la vida real. Fotografía de Adam Borkowski.
