4 Things That Totally Suck About Using Technology In School [Opinion] I’ve read that e-books are the future of books, and it’s not a matter of if they’ll surpass print books but when. Being still in college, I wondered if that was the case for e-textbooks. There’s certainly more buzz on e-textbooks as they’re cheaper and it means that students don’t have to break their backs with heavy physical books. This whole semester I’ve been dealing with e-textbooks and using just an Android tablet (Acer Iconia A500) to digitize all of my schoolwork to answer these questions. Have An e-Textbook? The argument of e-books versus traditional textbooks books goes beyond whether you prefer the look and feel of an actual book to the more unnatural book-on-a-screen experience.

Five Ways to Bring High-Tech Ideas into Low-Tech Classrooms Teaching Strategies Flickr:quacktaculous By Sara Nolan Even the most wired classrooms know the screeching silence of that great technological dis: “Unable to Connect to Server.” It’s the 21st century classroom’s equivalent of nails on a chalkboard. More than just stop-gap measures for tech-less teaching environments, these no-tech ideas can actually help students deepen their digital literacy by giving them an opportunity to see, explore, and understand the parts and purpose of the digital media they take for granted – tweets and status updates, for example – by recreating them in an analog context. Put the Facebook page on paper. Sara Porto Nolan is a writer and Language Arts teacher who has worked with Bay Area students in high-need schools. Related

Jobs in Instructional Design and Technology « Design Doc Months before finishing graduate school I set up several email search agents on job search/career sites in higher education and industry. That was over three years ago and I never shut them down. While I did find a job after graduation I like seeing what comes up each week. The fields of instructional design and technology are still pretty young, undefined, and evolving. This evolution comes through when you read these announcements over time. Are you looking?

iLearn Technology Just a Blog I texted a fellow nominated colleague yesterday that I just might head into the Edublog Award ceremony. She texted back scoffing, not realizing there was a ceremony. She said, “I mean it’s great people take pride in what they do but it’s a blog. No offense to you. I just mean there are way bigger things going on in the world.” True, there are.

Listening to Themselves: Podcasting Takes Lessons Beyond the Classroom Broadcasting Learning: Using Apple's GarageBand, Brent Coley records what his student Joey says into his headset for a ColeyCast, their classroom podcast. Brent Coley's fifth-grade students' eyes light up when they learn that their schoolwork can be heard in Apple iTunes, the program that allows them to compile their favorite artists' music. Although the Tovashal Elementary School students, in Murrieta, California, won't be jamming on guitars or drums in Coley's class, their studies of poetry, the solar system, and the early English settlements in North America become exciting when they're posted on a class Web site and saved in iTunes as ColeyCasts, room 34's take on podcasting. (Download the latest version of iTunes here.) Web distribution of their work motivates students to put their best foot forward. With minimal technology, Coley gives his students a global audience. Access to digital educational content at school, at home, and on the go is growing. Podcasting Defined Story Time

Lors d’une présentation donnée à Montréal, le directeur de la technologie à la maison-mère de la firme de services professionnels Deloitte aux États-Unis, Mark White, a commenté cinq approches technologies qui pourraient perturber – pour le meilleur – les organisations au cours des prochaines années. La première tendance porte sur l’analytique réelle, où la scrutation de l’information sous forme de service géré permet d’en extraire une valeur accrue. « Demandez au directeur des finances ou de la production de votre organisation quelles sont les 40 questions qu’ils doivent poser ou répondre dans le cadre de leurs fonctions : vous réaliserez que la moitié d’entre elles n’est pas traitée.
