How the Internet is Revolutionizing Education - TNW Industry As connection speeds increase and the ubiquity of the Internet pervades, digital content reigns. And in this era, free education has never been so accessible. The Web gives lifelong learners the tools to become autodidacts, eschewing exorbitant tuition and joining the ranks of other self-taught great thinkers in history such as Albert Einstein, Alexander Graham Bell, Paul Allen and Ernest Hemingway. “Learning is not a product of schooling but the lifelong attempt to acquire it.” -Albert Einstein 10 years ago in April 2001, Charles M. He says, “I think there’s a wide array of reasons why faculty should be engaged in recording and publishing lectures online. So. Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May. Both Yale and Stanford have followed suit, and even Harvard has jumped on board in the last two years.

ApprendreAutrementAut12 BRAVO! Merci de votre TRÈS beau partage! Je vous FÉLICITE! Oui, je sais qui vous êtes :-).BRAVO! Section 1 : Qu'est-ce qui est nouveau avec ces technologies dites " Web 2.0", "Apprendre 2.0" ou " 21st century learning"? Le Web 2.0, c'est des applications que nous retrouvons sur le Web que nous n'avons pas à installer. Les applications Web 1.0, quant à elles, doivent être installées sur notre ordinateur si nous désirons y avoir accès. Les applications Web 2.0 ne sont donc pas liées à l'ordinateur. L'idée de Web 2.0 est liée au cloud computing puisque ce que nous utilisons ou publions n'est pas chez nous, dans notre ordinateur, mais demeure sur le web et laisse une certaine trace. Comme mentionné plus haut, le Web 1,0 nécessite une installation. Logiciel Libre Le logiciel libre est le seul bien commun informationnel qui ait atteint sa maturité. Un logiciel libre restera toujours un logiciel libre. Section 2 : 5 manières de comprendre-concevoir ces changements L'interactivité L'ouverture 1.

School Libraries and Reading Promotion by Peter Gyr Concrete Reading Promotion It’s that easy: you learn to read by reading. And if you read because you want to, you read well. And this is where the problems start. All of you are teachers or teachers in training or school directors, and you do not have, at least we suppose so, problems with reading because you read because you want to and you read well. The text book may also act as the symbol of failure at school. What does the Word Read, gusoma, Mean? In my mother tongue, German, the root of the word read means to choose, to collect (to gather), to keep, to take. To read, to kiss, to drink. With such beautiful meanings, it must be a real pleasure to promote reading! What is Reading and what Happens when you Read. Reading is a multiple skill. There is also scientific research, known now in Europe, that demonstrates that people who read very much are happier, on average, than those who do not read much o just do not read at all. Reading Promotion Perspectives You build a school.

What is 21st Century Education Revised August 2008. Your Assignment, Should You Choose to Accept It . . . Like Alice, many educators, policy makers and even the general public respond resoundingly with "That's impossible!" when challenged to adopt a new paradigm of education for the 21st century.

Les risques intellectuels et l'apprentissage Qui ne risque rien, ne gagne rien Imaginez que vous venez tout juste de décrocher votre diplôme et que vous êtes particulièrement doué en physique et en mathématiques. Vous n'arrivez pas à trouver du travail dans une université, alors vous accepter un travail inférieur dans un bureau de brevets mais continuez de réfléchir à vos idées de recherche. Si vous croyez avoir déjà entendu cette histoire, vous avez probablement raison. Pour les scientifiques, le risque de mal interpréter des idées ou de se confronter à la désapprobation flagrante de leurs pairs vient avec le territoire. « La PRI est un catalyseur de l'apprentissage », déclare Dre Tracy Solomon, psychologue du développement à The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids). Les obstacles à la prise de risques intellectuels La réticence à prendre des risques intellectuels pourrait se poursuivre alors que l'enfant grandit. La façon dont on nous éduque Encourager la PRI de l'école primaire à l'université Encourager la PRI à la maison

Reading 2.0? Sometimes readers’ advisory doesn’t come easy. Sometimes we need some quick help recommending titles. A number of my students, most notably my Book Club kids, belong to book networking sites like GoodReads, LibraryThing, and Shelfari. But not everyone really wants to join and build a reading network based on tagging and rating and reviewing. I’ve been gathering and pointing to some speedier book recommendation tools that don’t require a membership commitment beyond a basic registration, a variety of sites that lead readers to quick book hook-ups based on recent reads, favorite authors, genres and other traits. BookSeer presents readers with a simple form asking what you just finished reading. Scholastic’s Teacher Book Wizard is designed to help teachers create and customize book lists. JacketFlap boasts that it contains a browsable and searchable list of pretty much every children’s book and young adult book ever published. The folks at were concerned that

Shibboleth Authentication Request Monitor: The net generation, unplugged Totally different from previous generations—or just younger? THEY are variously known as the Net Generation, Millennials, Generation Y or Digital Natives. But whatever you call this group of young people—roughly, those born between 1980 and 2000—there is a widespread consensus among educators, marketers and policymakers that digital technologies have given rise to a new generation of students, consumers, and citizens who see the world in a different way. Growing up with the internet, it is argued, has transformed their approach to education, work and politics. “Unlike those of us a shade older, this new generation didn't have to relearn anything to live lives of digital immersion. But does it really make sense to generalise about a whole generation in this way? After all, not everyone born between 1980 and 2000 has access to digital technology: many in the developing world do not. Activism or slacktivism? There is also a feeling of superficiality about much online youth activism.
