Happy New Year, even though some has already passed us by.You should have got back into the swing of things by now.Even on this side of the globe, as the student population waits in eager anticipation for the doors to open (well some might),back at the desk can’t be as good as a barbie on the beach.Seems a distant memory. It will be interesting to see what influence the new Apple apps and software for the iPad will have on teaching and learning. I’m sure there will be many already creating authentic learning experiences for their students. I think the potential for creating new learning experiences, using the iPad, has never been better. I predict that this year, innovation and creativity with these emerging technologies will produce some excellent learning resources and improve and increase the learning expereinces and knowledge of many people at all levels of society.
Just one link on iPads in this posting, plus there are links to an excellent objectives builder,some stuff on curriculum and general teaching and learning tips and techniques, new kit from JISCInfonet, a train the trainer manual,guide to writing competency based training materials,game based learning, a twitter guide for academics,ALT’s new open access journal, conferences and the odd one out
1. Objectives Builder. This is an excellent resource for teaching about and creating learning objectives (or learning outcomes). Watch the tutorial video. It’s very clear and concise and easy to follow. Then start creating.
