El blog de Alcanjo: ebook Hace un par de semanas os comenté que estaba buscando un libro electrónico, había varios que me interesaban, pero sobre todo uno, el Kobo eReader, un libro electrónico que por ahora sólo se comercializa en Estados Unidos, Canadá y Australia. Buscando como comprarlo dejé un comentario en el foro MobileRead y alguien contestó diciendo que me hacía el favor y me lo enviaba desde Canadá. Desde aquí quiero dar las gracias a Stefan, se ha portado de lujo. En menos de una semana ya lo tenía en casa, sin ningún tipo de problemas de aduanas ni tasas. El Kobo eReader tiene una pantalla de 6 pulgadas con una calidad excelente, apenas tiene reflejos y la nitidez con la que se muestran las letras es asombrosa. Hasta ahora todos los libros que he probado han sido en formato ePub y no me han dado ningún problema, el cambio entre hoja y hoja es muy rápido y para nada molesto. eBooks con estiloLa biblioteca de todosTodo ebooks

Better Learning with ICT - Online Communities in the Classroom | Teachers TV Khan Academy Connectivism Connectivism is a hypothesis of learning which emphasizes the role of social and cultural context. Connectivism is often associated with and proposes a perspective similar to Vygotsky's 'zone of proximal development' (ZPD), an idea later transposed into Engeström's (2001) Activity theory.[1] The relationship between work experience, learning, and knowledge, as expressed in the concept of ‘connectivity, is central to connectivism, motivating the theory's name.[2] It is somewhat similar to Bandura's Social Learning Theory that proposes that people learn through contact. The phrase "a learning theory for the digital age"[3] indicates the emphasis that connectivism gives to technology's effect on how people live, communicate and learn. Nodes and links[edit] The central aspect of connectivism is the metaphor of a network with nodes and connections.[4] In this metaphor, a node is anything that can be connected to another node such as an organization, information, data, feelings, and images.

Mobile Consider some of the basic symbols of education in the United States: the textbook, the chalkboard, and the apple. Thanks to technological innovations and cultural forces, we’ve seen textbooks supplanted by videos and e-books, SMART Boards replace chalkboards, and the apple on the teacher’s desk pushed aside by the latest gadgets from, well, Apple. Just as our classrooms have changed significantly since the 1800s, so have our ideas about the purpose of schools. Our views on education were defined by John Dewey's theory, which states—and I'm simplifying—that the general purpose of school is to transfer knowledge and prepare young people to participate in America’s democratic society. But today's students live in a modern, global society that is interconnected as never before. As a result, Dewey's explanation of the purpose of schools now seems insular and inadequate. I propose that the purpose of schools must be preparing children to compete in the global environment. Yet, there is hope.

My colleagues have this week; it’s PSSA week in Pennsylvania (PSSAs are standardized tests.). That’s not the flipped I meant, however. I meant, have you flipped your classroom yet? Well, if you have or are thinking about it, here are some tools you might want to consider using for those after-hours background knowledge sessions. YouTube This might be the most popular tool teachers have used for flipped instruction. You don’t have to establish a class list to allow for student discussion. Other services, such as those that approximate a LMS, require a lot of preparation before a teacher can use it. You can edit the video online (somewhat).

Teaching Digital Natives: Partnering for Real Learning ShareThis Reading Teaching Digital Natives: Partnering for Real Learning by Marc Prensky was a fantastic experience. This book details the importance of real learning is our students. As a teacher, I am always looking to share connections with my students. I want them to ask, “Who cares about this topic?” I have a great answer. Prensky says, “Partnering gives students the primary responsibility for: finding and following their passion, using whatever technology is available, researching and finding information, answering questions and sharing their thoughts and opinions, practicing (when properly motivated, e.g. through games), creating presentations in text and multimedia.” Changing roles of student and teachers can be scary, but as Prensky says, “When you feel such fear and need the courage to proceed anyway, it often helps to remember the lion in the Wizard of Ox—you don’t need the medal, because the courage is inside you all the time.” 1. 2. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
