How Can We Maximize the Potential of Learning Apps? Brad Flickinger The following is an excerpt from the book The App Generation: How Today’s Youth Navigate Identity, Intimacy, and Imagination in a Digital World by Howard Gardner and Katie Davis. Let’s dive directly into the world of educational apps. Our survey suggests that the majority — one might even say, the vast majority — of educational apps encourage pursuit of the goals and means of traditional education by digital means. Depending on the context in which it is used, and the priorities of the educators … one can skew the same application toward app-dependent or app-enabling ends. Just as generals are prone to fight the last war, it is probably not surprising that the first generation of educational apps resemble pre-app education. Let’s turn the educational challenge on its head. As we see it, the new media offer two dramatically fresh opportunities. High time for an example. The genius of Scratch is twofold.

Worksheets for the digital age: AR interactive print Ever since schools started using copy machines in the 1960s, worksheets have been a perennial classroom favorite, beloved — by teachers anyway — for their convenience and their ability to foster independent work. For students, however, worksheets have their downsides. Static text on a page is seldom engaging for digital natives, who are used to having so many more dynamic options. But what if there were a way to combine the easy prep and independent work of a traditional worksheet with the engagement of digital tools and multimedia, such as websites, videos, 3D imagery and podcasts? As it turns out, there is a way. Ever hear of augmented reality? Although true AR may still be out of reach for most classrooms, there’s a new, more accessible experience called interactive print that you can use in your classroom right now. How does it work? Check out the sample images below. Pretty cool, huh? Digital literacy and differentiated learning DIY interactive print worksheets Choose an AR program.

BYOD i Rozszerzona Rzeczywistość w klasie | Superbelfrzy RP A gdyby tak zabrać uczniów na wycieczkę do Centrum NASA na Florydzie, gdzie na własne oczy mogliby zobaczyć, a nawet dotknąć prawdziwego statku kosmicznego? Niestety, nie dość, że wycieczka droga, to i uzyskanie wizy wciąż nie takie łatwe. Ale od czego są nowe technologie? Mówicie, że Waszej szkoły nie stać na zakup tabletów, na których z tych technologii można by korzystać? A może wcale nie trzeba ich kupować? W publikowanym przez grono ekspertów raporcie Horizon, poświęconym „gorącym” trendom technologicznym w edukacji, od kilku lat pojawia się tajemniczo brzmiący skrót BYOD. Jakie są zalety BYOD? W naszych szkołach właśnie trwa właśnie rewolucja. Opiszę lekcję języka angielskiego z wykorzystaniem modelu BYOD, która miała miejsce w V Liceum Ogólnokształcącym im. Appka Spacecraft 3D nie wymaga dostępu do internetu, a jedynie wydrukowania specjalnego „markera”, który oznacza miejsce pojawiania się w przestrzeni wybranego pojazdu. Jak wykorzystać w klasie appkę Spacecraft 3D?

Catchoom - Image Recognition and Augmented Reality Rzeczywistość rozszerzona i jej zastosowanie w edukacji Coraz częściej do szeroko pojętej edukacji wkracza rzeczywistość rozszerzona, która stanowi przyszłość wirtualnego kształcenia. Rzeczywistość rozszerzona to obszar informatyki zajmujący się łączeniem świata realnego z elementami wirtualnymi, wygenerowanymi przy użyciu grafiki komputerowej1. Główny potencjał edukacji opartej na rozszerzonej rzeczywistości tkwi w metodzie AR - nakładaniu informacji generowanych komputerowo na rzeczywiste obiekty oraz pracy na wirtualnych obiektach w rzeczywistym otoczeniu. Pozwala to na edukację nieomal „namacalną”, spektakularną oraz oddziałującą na wszystkie zmysły, które uczestniczą w procesie uczenia się. Celem niniejszego artykułu jest zaprezentowanie najnowszych osiągnięć z zakresu rzeczywistości rozszerzonej (augmented reality, AR)2 oraz jej zastosowań w edukacji: zarówno w obszarze nauczania teoretycznego, jak i zdobywania praktycznych umiejętności.

Bring schools to life with Aurasma app – @EDUWELLS The Magic of Bringing Information to life. I’m assuming you’ve seen at least one of the eight Harry Potter films.

Newspaper photos act out the news event as film too, whilst you walk down the road reading. It seems so magical and yet, like so many things these days , there’s an app for that! The Aurasma App (free) allows you to create what’s known as Augmented Reality (Real life with extra info added) Here’s a great intro into the world of Augmented Reality. And here’s Aurasma’s own demo video of it in action: Before I take you though how to make your own, let’s look at the potential uses for learning. Lets start with possible posters on the walls around your school or classroom that come to life and What about the school newsletters? The possibilities are endless! Getting started with your first “Auras” I will have a fun 2014 with this app.
