Will iTextbooks increase student engagement? Not really.

Posted by reyjunco on January 30, 2012 in Commentary |

Over at Wired, Tim Carmody wrote a great piece about Apple’s latest foray into the education market – digital textbooks via the iBooks 2 app. Tim hits the nail on the head in his introduction (emphasis mine): Engagement is a big word in education.

Posted by reyjunco on May 24, 2011 in Research |

Lately, I’ve spent quite a bit of time analyzing data we collected in the Fall of 2010. While I was conducting a completely unrelated analysis, I noticed differences in the mean time spent on Facebook by students in different classes so I thought I’d take a closer look.

While exploratory, I theorized that SSAO might be more likely to engage, given that […]
