[CfP] Emerging Technologies in Education

I am very happy that I can invite to a Special Interest Group at this year ED-Media 2015 conference in Montreal, Canada. If you are interested to join us there, please consider the Call for Paper, which will be open till 29th April 2015:

The Emerging Technologies for Learning and Teaching Special Interest Group (SIG) would like to specifically invite innovators, technology-focused, and visionary people of all educational sectors to present and discuss their results with this SIG during EdMedia 2015. The SIG chair encourages researchers to submit contributions with a strong focus on technologyand specifically, proposals should focus onhow technology-enhanced learning can be supported by innovative technologies. For more information and instruction on submitting your proposals, please click the link below.

Please find here the [Call For Paper] and here detailed information about the [ED-Media 2015]. I would love to see you in Montreal to discuss new ideas for technologies in education.

If you have any question, please do not hesitate to contact me martin[dot]ebner[at]tugraz[dot]at.

[lecture] AK Technoloy Enhanced Learning – Einheit 3

In der dritten Einheit des Seminars “Ausgewählte Kapitel aus Technology Enhanced Learning” beschäftigten wir uns mit dem Maker Movement. Das tolle war, dass wir auch das FabLab der TU Graz besuchen konnten und uns dort vor Ort 3D-Drucker, Lasercutter, CNC-Fräse ansehen konnten. Hier die Inputfolien:

[publication] The Future of PLEs: How Can Higher Education Be Passed?

I was invited to make some comments to a specific chapter of the book as well as bringing in my expertise on Personal Learning Environments. Now the whole book “Responsive Open Learning Environments” is published as Open Access.
My short comment is titled “The Future of PLEs: How Can Higher Education Be Passed?”:

[publication] Technology Enhanced Learning and the Digital Economy: A Literature Review

Our publication about “Technology Enhanced Learning and the Digital Economy: A Literature Review” is now online published in the International Journal of Innovation in the Digital Economy (IJIDE).

Abstract:

Throughout history, the ongoing technological progress has caused the economy to change in many aspects; furthermore, at times it triggered the dawn of a new era. In the 1980s, this happened for the last time and the digital economy has emerged over the last decades. Since then, the significance of approaches to technology enhanced learning (TEL) has increased rapidly. However, the relations between the digital economy and technology enhanced learning are hardly investigated. Therefore this study points out the known relations between technology enhanced learning and the digital economy by reviewing 1089 publications. Thereby one could recognize that the relations between the regularities of the digital economy and the field of technology enhanced learning have not been thoroughly researched yet.

[publication] KINDGERECHTES PILATES ALS INTERVENTION ZUR HALTUNGS- STABILISIERUNG UND VERBESSERUNG VON WIRBELSÄULEN- FEHLHALTUNGEN BEI SCHÜLERINNEN IM ALTER VON 10-12 JAHREN

Im Rahmen einer Appentwicklung für Kinder zur Messung von Sportübungen hat sich diese Publikation ergeben “KINDGERECHTES PILATES ALS INTERVENTION ZUR HALTUNGS- STABILISIERUNG UND VERBESSERUNG VON WIRBELSÄULEN- FEHLHALTUNGEN BEI SCHÜLERINNEN IM ALTER VON 10-12 JAHREN” beim 15. Kongress der Österreichischen Sportwissenschaftlichen Gesellschaft.

Zusammenfassung:

Wirbelsäulenbeschwerden zählen zu den häufigsten chronischen Krankheiten unserer Bevölkerung. Die Anzahl der Schulkinder mit beginnenden Haltungsschäden ist steigend (Latalski et al., 2013). Ziel der Studie ist, den Effekt eines regelmäßigen Pilatesprogramms zur Stabilisation und Korrektur der Haltung aufzuzeigen. Welche Effekte auf die Haltung entstehen u.a. in geschlechtsspezifischem Kontext?

[vodcast] Are MOOCs the chance to open-up Education?

The recording of my tak about “Are MOOCs the chance to open-up Education?” at “Workshop on Behind the Scenes: The Making of a MOOC” in Heidelberg is now online available. The slides have already been published here.

[CfP] Digital Innovations in Teacher Education

I just like to hint to an interesting Call for Papers titled “Digital Innovations in Teacher Education“. The University of Teacher Education Vienna in cooperation with the Reflecting Education Journal solicits original (research) papers framing pedagogic and didactic considerations, applicative scenarios or taxonomies in the field of technology-enhanced (language) learning and teaching within the context of teacher education/development.

There is little doubt that digital innovations have initiated a vivid discussion concerning the reformation or adaptation of higher education in general (cf. Wiley 2009, Strasser & Greller 2014). Especially in the field of teacher education, certain developments concerning a curricular implementation of digital technologies in initial teacher education and teacher training (including post-graduate teacher education, and continuing professional development/teacher development) can be noted. However, experts (cf. Wiley 2009, Siemens 2004) suggest that especially technological developments have often not been didactically implemented in teacher education/development curricula

The deadline for submission is February 7th, 2015 – find here the Call for Paper.

[publication] Experiences with iPads in primary schools / Experiencias con ipads en la escuela primaria

In the last issue of 2014 of the journal “Profesorado. Revista de Curriculum y Formación del Profesorado” our contribution about “Experiences with iPads in primary schools / Experiencias con ipads en la escuela primaria” got published. The article is now available in two languages (englisch/spanish).

Abstract (englisch):

Tablet computers gain enormous attention nowadays and become more and more part of our daily life. Due to this it is not astonishing that even the educational sector is thinking about the use of such wearable devices in the classroom. Our research study aims to give insights about real life experiences with iPads in Austrian primary schools. Therefore we describe the development of appropriate learning apps and their use in classrooms. Finally each technology-enhanced lesson is observed as well as evaluated afterwards with the help of the cut-off technique. The research work carries out different circumstances the use of tablet computers has a positive influence on teaching and learning and gives practical hints how they should be used in classrooms.

Abstract (spanish):

Los ordenadores-tablet están acaparando toda la atención en estos momentos y forman parte de nuestra vida cotidiana. Por ello, no es de extrañar que en el ámbito educativo se hayan arbitrado fórmulas para incorporarlos en las aulas. La presente investigación pretende mostrar las estrategias llevadas a cabo en determinadas experiencias con iPads en escuelas primarias austriacas. Por un lado, se describe el desarrollo de las aplicaciones (apps) educativas apropiadas para su empleo en aulas. Y por otro, cada lección apoyada en las tecnologías es analizada y evaluada desde una perspectiva técnica. Las aportaciones más representativas de la investigación evidencian las diversas fórmulas de utilización de este tipo de ordenadores para promover una influencia positiva en la enseñanza, también se apuntan recomendaciones prácticas sobre cómo deberían ser usados en aulas.
