E-learning Use of technology in education to improve learning and teaching Educational technology is the use of both physical hardware, software, and educational theoretic to facilitate learning and improving performance by creating, using, and managing appropriate technological processes and resources [1]. Educational technology as the theory and practice of educational approaches to learning.Educational technology as technological tools and media, for instance massive online courses, that assist in the communication of knowledge, and its development and exchange. Definition[edit] Related terms[edit] Educational technology is an inclusive term for both the material tools and the theoretical foundations for supporting learning and teaching. An educational technologist is someone who is trained in the field of educational technology. History[edit] 19th century classroom, Auckland Slide projectors were widely used during the 1950s in educational institutional settings. Theory[edit] Behaviorism[edit] B.F.

Web 2.0 World Wide Web sites that use technology beyond the static pages of earlier Web sites A tag cloud (a typical Web 2.0 phenomenon in itself) presenting Web 2.0 themes Web 2.0 (also known as Participative (or Participatory)[1] and Social Web[2]) refers to websites that emphasize user-generated content, ease of use, participatory culture and interoperability (i.e., compatible with other products, systems, and devices) for end users. The term was invented by Darcy DiNucci in 1999 and later popularized by Tim O'Reilly and Dale Dougherty at the O'Reilly Media Web 2.0 Conference in late 2004.[3][4][5][6] The Web 2.0 framework specifies only the design and use of websites and does not place any technical demands or specifications on designers. History[edit] Web 1.0[edit] Some Web 2.0 capabilities were present in the days of Web 1.0, but were implemented differently. Flew believed these factors formed the trends that resulted in the onset of the Web 2.0 "craze".[15] Characteristics[edit] Web 2.0[edit]

Le papier contre l’électronique (2/4) : Lequel nous rend plus in Suite de notre dossier sur ce qui oppose le papier à l’électronique. Après avoir constaté combien la question déclenchait de débats passionnés entre ceux qui viennent de la culture du livre et ceux qui vivent avec la culture du web, il est temps de nous mettre à comprendre l’impact des différences de support. Et notamment de nous demander vraiment si l’un des deux supports est capable de nous rendre plus intelligents. Le calme est bon pour l’esprit La psychologue et neurologue Maryanne Wolf est la directrice du Centre de recherche pour la lecture et le langage de la Tufts University. Caleb Crain, dans le long dossier consacré au « Crépuscule des livres » qu’il livre au NewYorker signale une très intéressante étude pour mesurer la différence entre une lecture attentive et silencieuse et une lecture troublée par un commentaire audio. Reste que ces exemples ne permettent pas de différencier l’impact du support sur la lecture. L’idiotie de nos sociétés n’est pas la faute de la technologie

The DaVinci Institute - The Future of Education by Thomas Frey The pace of change is mandating that we produce a faster, smarter, better grade of human being. Current systems are preventing that from happening. Future education system will be unleashed with the advent of a standardized rapid courseware-builder and a single point global distribution system. “Education is now the number one economic priority in today’s global economy.” – John Naisbitt, Author of Megatrends The following is the result of a collaborative research study conducted by the DaVinci Institute, its members and associated research teams. Introduction Within two years a radical shift will begin to occur in the world of education. While many people are making predictions about the direction that education systems are headed, we have found the best predictors to be hidden in the participative viral systems springing to life in the online world, such as iTunes and Amazon. Lessons from the Ancient World Roman numerals were a system problem, and a huge one at that. Eight Driving Forces

13 reasons to use educational technology in lessons Sometimes you need to convince colleagues to think about using educational technology in their lessons, or to identify where in their scheme of work they could incorporate it. This list is a starting point: you may find one or two points that would "resonate" with your co-worker, and grab his or her attention. Where information and communications technology (ICT) is taught well, it has been shown to enhance pupils’ levels of understanding and attainment in other subjects. That’s because “real” ICT is more about thinking skills than about mastering particular software applications.ICT can provide both the resources and the pedagogical framework for enabling pupils to become effective independent learners.

Technology: Understanding ‘Cloud Computing’ Like a growing number of companies, the New York Times has its head in the clouds—at least the part of its head that contains its memory. Without using a byte of its own processing power, the newspaper last month provided free, fully searchable access to its 1851 to 1922 archive—more than 15 million articles. How? If you thought Amazon sold only books, you probably think Google is just a search engine.

Driving this leap forward is the proliferation of high-speed Internet connections, cheaper and more powerful chips and drives, and the construction of data centers that house thousands of computers. You don't need to run a business with an overburdened IT department to see the promise of cloud computing. But what about information security? Still, last Friday Amazon's online store went down for a couple of hours.
