The second edition of the Edudemic Magazine has been published this weekend. To read the magazine you will have to download the app and then either subscribe to the magazine for 6 months or purchase individual articles.
I am delighted to announce that the article I submitted a couple of weeks ago is the subject of the front cover. What is more I have been asked to submit another article for the March edition, although at the moment I have no idea what the focus for this next article is to cover. This month’s issue of the magazine has the following articles:
What Apple’s Education Initiative Really Means for You - Terry Heick
Technology: Changing the Expectations for Individuals with Disabilities - Dr Robin Parker
How Technology has Education on the Cusp of Revolution - David Kinane
iPads and Classrooms: Towards Meaningful iPad Integration - Francisco Nieto Salazar
Technology Versus the Student - Jesse Langley
New Web Tool Amps Up Google Docs and Turns Collaboration up to 11 - Erin Klein
Why All Ed Reform Fails - Terry Heick
All in all a good read. And just to whet your appetites, here is a snippet from my article, but to read the full transcript you will have to download the February issue.
The evolving app based world we are currently entering into is enabling educators to cheaply create bespoke suites of tools that meet the personalised needs of their students. What is more, many of the apps that appear on their mlearning devices have a web based counterpart. Often the app is free as is the web based service. The benefit to learning is that students have multiple modes of access to the tools that enable them to demonstrate their learning, in this case to capture and publish their voice. The opportunities for sharing learning are becoming ubiquitous, location and time independent. School is always on, open and accessible as a result.
Enjoy the read!
