Ovi Barceló

Ovi Barceló works as IT Coordinator in Grupo Sorolla; school cluster in Valencia, Spain: "Teaching is my passion. Technology is my hobby. What if you can put your job in it?
I believe that the future of our children has to be built up since the very beginning and for that we, teachers, have to put our commitment to ensure it. But the thing is that we don’t know how it is going to be, so, from my point of view, we have to give them the skills needed to face their future with full guarantees of success.
It means responsibility for me. It means cooperation, self-regulation, communication, problem solving, advanced use of ICT… things that can’t be easily found in books.
We are not the source of information anymore. We walk in the same path of our students looking for the best way to get it and use it."

Chromebooks in education… are you sure?

After reading this article I felt the need to write my thoughts about it and reopen my abandoned blog.

We can't deny that Chromebooks are getting bigger in American schools as iPads did a few years ago. Both movements have the same reason behind: a reaction against Windows devices.

Windows has been present in the schools before any other device, but with they weren't ready for the change; the lack of an educational plan has made their competitors to get the market easily.

Ovi Barcelo: Developers, Developers, Developers!

by Ovi Barcelo Expert Educator Columnist, Spain One of the best things I have gotten from apps is the chance to meet some of their developers. Apps now are everywhere, even in the classroom, and we can say so because this new ecosystem has socialized the development of software. Now, (almost) everybody can be an app developer and even achieve great success in the digital world. The coding part is not very difficult and the tools provided by the big companies are user-friendly, in most cases.… Visit the author's original post

Ovi Barcelo: 10 Things We Need to Know About Apps in the Classroom

by Ovi Barcelo Expert Educator Columnist, Spain Nowadays it is very difficult to look to the past for longer than 4 or 5 years. We think that Whatsapp, for example, has been around forever when in fact the app is only 5 years old. The same goes for Angry Birds (launched 2009) and Twitter (which was also translated to other languages starting 2009). So, what will be our apps landscape be like five years from now? Can we trust our methodology only in apps?… Visit the author's original post

Wolfram Alpha

Wolfram-Alpha01
Wolfram-Alpha00

In 2009 a new way of searching in internet was created as a webpage.

Now we have this amazing search engine as a Windows 8 app.

Actually, Wolfram Alpha is not a search engine; it is more an answer engine or, technically, a computational knowledge engine.

Why is that? When you enter a topic or a sentence to be searched this app doesn’t list the webpage where you can find more information about it, it analyses your words (or numbers) and shows its interpretation of them.… Visit the author's original post
