Smartphones in the classroom: friend or foe?

Gamification, Higher Ed, Students

From being a distracting gadget to becoming a valuable learning tool: that’s the short story of the use of smartphones in the classroom. Instead of making students switch off their phones, teachers should embrace the available technology and think of new ways to use these instruments to gain their students’ attention, keep them interested, stir their desire to learn, and support their learning actions.

Is a learning portal different from an LMS?

A learning management system is a software that educational institutions buy in order to manage diverse aspects of online education. A learning portal is just another face of the same LMS; it is the customized end result that students use in their learning. There may be a fine line between a leaning management system and a learning portal, but it exists nonetheless.

Successful online education means offering personalized learning experiences to students, which will impact schools’ metrics, which will adapt and impact the employment world metrics.

Do you prefer your students to learn just because they have to, in order to get a grade, or would you like them to learn because they actually enjoy it? An LMS with a beautiful user interface can improve the learning process and make students — and teachers — more engaged. Visual and interactive elements have the power to keep things interesting and prompt students to actually be excited about learning.

Can learning be addictive?

E-learning, Gamification, Higher Ed, K-12, Students, Teachers

The internet can be addicting. People would do a quick search on an interesting topic, read on and find themselves reading more and more topics totally different from the topic which piqued their interest. It’s like playing a video game and most of us can relate to that. Once we start playing the first few stages of the game, we are progressing and finally finish the story of the game. It’s addictive. Now put that in the perspective of learning – reading and studying topics which get deeper and deeper, until it becomes addictive.
