Professional Learning | Really? | {et al} - 15 views

  •  
    ""Yes, you can make a lot of things look bad taken out of context, but I don't think a case can be made that this is appropriate for any professional development, or classroom, context…. When I first watched it many emotions swarmed inside me; sadness, horror, embarrassment, anger, disbelief. At one stage I may have laughed at the outrageousness of it all."

The Ed Techie: Innovating Pedagogy report - 0 views

  •  
    Here at IET in the OU, a bunch of us, led by Mike Sharples, were asked to produce an annual report on how changes in teaching and learning (related to technology) were changing the current landscape. ... Think of it as like a Horizon's report with more focus on pedagogy. We adopted the same methodology as the Horizon report also.

The Ultimate Guide to The Use of Blogs in Teaching ~ Educational Technology and Mobile ... - 208 views

  • Blogging is one of the eventual realization of web 2.0 technologies. It is the driving engine behind this online information revolution. Thousands of blogs are created everyday and for different purposes. Some people blog to make money, some to share their voice with the world, some to immortalize their life events and diaries, and others blog just to vex and scam people.

8 Observations on flipping the classroom - Articles - Educational Technology ... - 128 views

  • Flipping is not for everyone. There is not one right way to teach. There is not even one way to flip your classroom.
  • The videos are a very basic part of the class. It is not the entire story
  •  
    One of the more unfortunate buzzwords to appear in online education circles and the press is "flipping the classroom". .. The students watch the videos for homework, freeing up the lesson for interactivity, project work and so on. I not impressed with this brilliant "new" idea. Why not?

Inquire Within | It's not about getting the right answers but rather, asking really goo... - 7 views

  • If we live in a collaborative world, why do we often wait until the work environment before we learn from others?  Why do teachers fight the system, or more likely just ignore it?
  •  
    How can we create the desire to inquire? That is a hard issue to grapple with (and worthy of much inquiry by educators), but I'm sure that: 1) it's not grades, and 2) there's no silver bullet to get students motivated to dig deeper and extend their own learning.  However, I think one great way to create deep motivation for some learners is encouraging them to leave a legacy.

Educational Leadership:How Teachers Learn:Learning with Blogs and Wikis - 57 views

  • Bloggers spend significant time pushing their own thinking—and having their thinking pushed by others. They respond to comments and link to other writers, connecting to and creating interesting ideas. Some develop curriculum and instructional materials together. Others review resources and debate the merits of the individual tools of teaching. Philosophical conversations about what works in schools are common as teachers talk about everything from homework and grading practices to school and district policies that affect teaching and learning. Blogs become a forum for public articulation—and public articulation is essential for educators interested in refining and revising their thinking about teaching and learning.
  • That's when I introduce them to RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed readers.

A Personal Cyberinfrastructure (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE - 3 views

shared by Ben Rimes on 11 Sep 09 - Cached
  • Pointing students to data buckets and conduits we've already made for them won't do. Templates and training wheels may be necessary for a while, but by the time students get to college, those aids all too regularly turn into hindrances. For students who have relied on these aids, the freedom to explore and create is the last thing on their minds, so deeply has it been discouraged. Many students simply want to know what their professors want and how to give that to them.

      This is why the gradual release of responsibility is so important at all levels of education. While some meta-responsibilities need to be unloaded onto the learner at a very young age (scheduling and structuring work time, note taking, reflection, etc.), other tasks and scripts for learning within the context of a specific discipline can be scaffolded and then released to the learner throughout K-12.

More Remote Learners in Your Future | From the Bell Tower - 7/16/2009 - Library Journal - 0 views

  •  
    What does this have to do with higher education? High gas prices got adult learners questioning the value of driving an hour each way to a college campus. Suddenly, online learning became vastly more attractive to a whole segment of higher education's market. Articles about fuel prices driving students to online courses became as prevalent as those about the impact of the recession on higher education are right now. While the price of fuel has retreated to a more manageable range, the number of Americans flocking to online higher education has shown no such decline.
