re:flexbloggen Digital delaktighet .SE tror att internet kan bidra positivt till såväl individers som samhällets utveckling. Alla människor i Sverige ska ha samma rätt och möjligheter att utnyttja internets tjänster. I allt högre grad krävs i dag grundläggande internetkunskaper exempelvis på arbetsmarknaden eller för att kunna ta del av samhällets service. De som av olika anledningar saknar nätkompetens riskerar att hamna utanför, vilket kan få konsekvenser såväl för demokratin som för samhällsekonomin. Nödvändigt för en fungerande demokrati Även i ett land som Sverige, där utvecklingen ligger långt framme, finns många människor som inte är digitalt delaktiga och som därmed ställs helt eller delvis utanför när samhällsnyttiga funktioner flyttar ut på internet. Hur började det? .SEs initiativ för en ökad digital delaktighet bedrevs ursprungligen som en egen satsning med ett antal delprojekt. Hearing, upprop och kampanj På .SE insåg vi att vi inte kan förändra situationen i Sverige till det bättre helt på egen hand.

Are You Familiar With Them? It’s been nearly two and half years since the publication of the first “10 internet technologies that educators should be informed about” article on this site and given the fast paced evolution of technology it’s time for an update. The start of new school year is the perfect time to refresh this list! Below you will find updated information for 5 of the technologies from the original posting, and 5 new technologies that have earned their rightful place in the list (displacing 5 other types of tech, that while still worthy, are not quite as relevant today, IMHO). 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Another important education technology trend is the exploding use of mobile devices. Well, there you have it – ten technologies that teachers, administrators, and educational technologists should be keeping an eye on and considering for their schools and classrooms, if they aren’t already using them.

Samarbeta online Det fanns en tid, för inte alls så länge sedan, då Internet främst sågs som en arena för att söka information. För dem som var någorlunda slängda i teknik var det dessutom möjligt att publicera information. Så är det inte längre. Med sociala mediers framväxt har vi gått från ett informationssamhälle till ett interaktionssamhälle. Eller för att vara noga, så står vi kanske med en fot i varje del. Numera är det enkelt för var och en som vill att publicera, interagera och samarbeta på nätet. Precis som svampar är de förgängliga. Min ambition med den här webbplatsen är att visa på några av alla de samarbetsmöjligheter som finns tillgängliga just NU.

Special Education Apps for iPad Add In my classroom , I was blessed to have students from amazingly diverse backgrounds and with an array of skills and strengths. I worked relentlessly to build in supports and foster an inclusive community for all of my students. This meant cutting, laminating, velcro-ing, washing, re-making, and constructing what felt like a million supportive learning devices for my students with and without special needs. Now, having an iPad, I often play around with apps that I realize would have been incredibly beneficial for my students with special needs. Continuing with our Education Apps for iPad series, here are some apps grouped by category that students, parents, and teachers can leverage to support all learners! Communication Proloquo2Go .
