HootCourse

What is a HootCourse?

A HootCourse is an online classroom. And then some.
Instead of cumbersome forums or complicated lesson-plan formats, HootCourse uses a combination of the most popular social networks and blogging platforms to provide a new type of online classroom.

HootCourses use Facebook, Twitter and blogging platforms

HootCourses are built on tweets and status updates in real-time. There's no particular structure to them, at least no more than a classroom with chairs and a blackboard; they're a simple construct that lets a teacher and pupil interact.

How The 'Library For All' Project May Revolutionize Learning In Developing Countries | Edudemic

How The 'Library For All' Project May Revolutionize Learning In Developing Countries | Edudemic:

"Library For All is trying to harness the power of technology and mobile phone networks found across the developing world in order to give low-cost access to a digital library of relevant content.

The library brings together content from Open Source providers and top global publishers. It is designed for low-bandwidth environments through the use of a local network topology. The platform is designed to be device agnostic. That means it can be accessed via mobile phones, e-readers or even low-cost tablets.

A 4th grade student at our pilot school in Respire Haiti, trying out an Aakash tablet, that retails at just $40. With your backing, we will launch Library For All here in October!

Rather than bringing traditional tablets that are reliant on wifi and are focused on apps and internet access, this style of platform promises to be much more useful in developing areas where access/wifi is not always reliable. Check out their video to learn a bit more, and don’t forget to take a look at their Kickstarter page to learn more about the scaling of their project and some more specifics!"

What Is Successful Technology Integration? | Edutopia

What Is Successful Technology Integration? | Edutopia:




Technology integration is the use of technology resources -- computers, mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, digital cameras, social media platforms and networks, software applications, the Internet, etc. -- in daily classroom practices, and in the management of a school. Successful technology integration is achieved when the use of technology is:
  • Routine and transparent
  • Accessible and readily available for the task at hand
  • Supporting the curricular goals, and helping the students to effectively reach their goals
When technology integration is at its best, a child or a teacher doesn't stop to think that he or she is using a technology tool -- it is second nature. And students are often more actively engaged in projects when technology tools are a seamless part of the learning process.
