Continuum Education is stoked to announced that Apropos was named a finalist for the 2014 SIIA Education CODiE Awards for "Best Educational App for a Mobile Device". The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier award for the software and information industries.
Technology and policy have come to enable the demand of a new class of products for programs. These make networking a more integral part of learning experiences and create new interaction models that can define and differentiate programs.
In this post, we start looking at Apropos, our collaborative learning application built around a group search activity. Search “sessions” begin with a search prompt from educators. Learners then search the Web, query Gooru’s educational resource collection, or provide links to their own files in relation to the prompt. When the search phase is over, the group can discuss what they have found, prune or rank the results, and then save everything for future reference or further instruction.
In this series on learner choice, recent posts have laid out our goal to identify and promote the practice of instilling learner choice and self direction within planned instruction.
