The Discussion Forum is Dead; Long Live the Discussion Forum - Hybrid Pedagogy - 74 views

  • There are better forums for discussion than online discussion forums. The discussion forum is a ubiquitous component of every learning management system and online learning platform from Blackboard to Moodle to Coursera.
  • as though one relatively standardized interface can stand in for the many and varied modes of interaction we might have in a physical classroom
    • Rafael Morales_Gamboa
      The point is not to reproduce what occurs in the physical classroom, but to provide support for discussion that takes advantage of the digital environment.
  • predetermined variables

      They do not have to be predetermined.

  • Most online learning platforms make customization slow or difficult enough to deter responsiveness or impulsivity
    • Rafael Morales_Gamboa
      I do not agree with this. It would require a well defined criteria to properly compare the flexibility of both environments.
  • building community is at the heart of learning
  • which would never seem reasonable in our on-ground pedagogy
    • Rafael Morales_Gamboa
      That does not mean it does not make sense in the digital environment. 
  • Students post because they have to, not because they enjoy doing so
  • Rather than hacking the system to fit our pedagogy, we can easily become the teachers the LMS wants us to be
  • In a classroom, we work diligently to unify our students, to foster a supportive environment, and to encourage cooperation and collaboration
    • Rafael Morales_Gamboa
      Too much of an idyllic view of the physical classrom. If what is said here about it where the case in the mayority of cases, the world would be a much better one.
  • While some might argue that the 140-character limit doesn’t allow for deep inquiry, we disagree. Twitter, rather, becomes a tool for a collective inquiry, creating depth through the metonymic relationship between tweets and between tweets and what they link to.
    • Rafael Morales_Gamboa
      What about the bus stop metaphor? Does it not apply to Twitter as well?

Five Best Practices for the Flipped Classroom | Edutopia - 186 views

  • It doesn't solve anything. It is a great first step in reframing the role of the teacher in the classroom. It fosters the "guide on the side" mentality and role, rather than that of the "sage of the stage." It helps move a classroom culture towards student construction of knowledge rather than the teacher having to tell the knowledge to students.
  • We must first focus on creating the engagement and then look at structures, like the flipped classroom, that can support.
  • If the flipped classroom is truly to become innovative, then it must be paired with transparent and/or embedded reason to know the content.
  • ...8 more annotations...
  • One of the best way to create the "need to know" is to use a pedagogical model that demands this.
  • Will you demand that all students watch the video, or is it a way to differentiate and allow choice
  • Will you allow or rely on mobile learning for students to watch it?
  • Lack of technology doesn't necessarily close the door to the flipped classroom model, but it might require some intentional planning and differentiation.
  • you must build in reflective activities to have students think about what they learned, how it will help them, its relevance
  • Students need metacognition to connect content to objectives
  • The focus should be on teacher practice, then tools and structures.
  • Ok, I'll be honest. I get very nervous when I hear education reformists and politicians tout how "incredible" the flipped classroom model (1), or how it will "solve" many of the problems of education. It doesn't solve anything. It is a

What makes an interactive whiteboard interactive? - Doug Johnson's Blue Skunk... - 25 views

  • But many advocates of this technology (myself included), see IWBs as genuine means of bringing more interactivity, more student-focus into classrooms of traditional teachers
  • What we don't want to forget is that someone who is coaching a teacher is not really looking for "good technology use" but for just good educational practices. Having an IWB is not going to change a lecturer into something else.
  • Any item in the Instruction domain can be enhanced using an IWB.
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • just because a teacher has an IWB doesn't mean it has to be used every minute of the day. And yes, a teacher can create truly interactive lessons without using any technology whatsoever.
  • use the SmartNotebook software that works with the hardware to organize materials, to find and share lessons, and to seamlessly blend multimedia into lessons.
  • While popular (2007, 2010, interactive white boards (IWBs) are controversial even (or especially) among technology enthusiasts. The major complaint is that the use of these devices reinforces the "sage on the stage" teaching methodology. "The IWB is little more than a fancy overhead projector and its touch sensitive screen is only used to save the teacher a couple steps back to the computer to change a slide."
    Blog post that articulates some of the best practices for incorporating an interactive white board (IWB), like a SMART Board, into your classroom in meaningful and instructionally sound ways.
