 Social Media, Global Learning, Probes, Multimedia, Virtual Manipulatives are all here!

    Collaboration is all the rage these days. Students love to collaborate using the latest technological advances, in applications like Google Docs, and Wikis. Groups are set up, which have unique cloudspace data storage, and communication capabilities.

     Security is obviously a concern here.

      New technology brings challenges, just as the use of early telephones did. The exciting transmission of the human voice was overwhelming for many, back then. It didn’t take long for people to get accustomed to telecommunicating,  for business and personal use. How times have changed!

       Granted, there will always be someone who abuses the technology ( just like with guns). Telephones have been used to make crank calls. Now cyber bullying and threats do happen. Parents and teachers have to be extra vigilant about this.

      However, I believe, the benefits far outweigh the risks! Making learning fun is the first prerequisite for our young people. Enabling interactive posters to display student work is a magnet for students. They love to broadcast and share what they learn and believe. Brightly-colored graphics, great YouTube videos, and current  iPod music downloads all add to the  fun! Glogster is a prime example of this. Even Grade 4 students are using it!

      E-books and mobiles are everywhere. What a great time to be a student!

Here is a  great new report from Jake Hird, at Econsultancy!

“So, I’ve collected as much as I can from my previous insane snippets of data and benchmarked it against the here and now, alongside rooting out some new stuff for you to mull over.” he says.

 This report is quite interesting, in that the author, reviews his past results ,(from 6 months previous) & makes comparisons,  in an easy, readable format.  He lists his sources. Comments follow, so you decide for yourself, how people feel about his findings. Make what you want of these statistics. Here is his comprehensive report:
