Some Thoughts On Tablet Learning (aka Elearning On iPads)

Upside Learning

There’s no doubt the iPad has been a phenomenal success. It has ruled the tablet computer space with a commanding market share ever since it literally created the category in 2010. By accepting elearning on iPads is the same as mlearning we’re definitely setting the bar too low.

Creating Secret Facebook Groups to Create Class Discussion

DigitalChalk eLearning

When looking to find an effective method to create discussion for your class, training, or just group discussion, creating a Facebook group is a great way to do this. If you want your group to have a certain subject that you do not want open to just the general public then, I suggest creating a secret group. When you create a secret group this hides the group and all its content from anyone else on Facebook. This creates a safe environment for your students to discuss.

With this, myself and many of my colleagues have been researching how to create a more interactive learning environment that integrates in the different learning styles of visual, audio, even tactile learning. One example of this is secret Facebook groups to encourage students to create a substantial discussion on the subject being taught. This group can be created and only the students can see this and respond to it.
