Thanks to Twemes and Martin Ebners Twitter Messages I get at least a Impression of what is going on at the Microlearning Conference 2008 in Innsbruck/Austria.
E.g. Judy Breck [Blog 1, Blog 2] with her Keynote about the Cloud in Education she states that:
Delivering the cloud to individual students is the key mobile role for education.
The node junction between web assets is the most important component of online learning.
In her Keynote she presents a
3 Step Plan to complete before 2012
- No more pencils – mobile and connectivity to all school age kids
- No textbooks – schools use open educational resources online
- No more searching gobbledygook – educators and mobilists focus on learning content
Martin Ebners presentation titled „Has the end of chalkboard come? A survey about the limits of Interactive Pen Displays in Higher Education“ could be a nice base for evaluating interactive whiteboards within our ePush Project.
That’s it so far. For me it is nice to get these impressions. Thanks a lot to the contributers!
