Read Like a Historian - 154 views

  • ence.   I have used almost all lessons in the Expansion/Slavery curriculum section and I absolutely love these lesson. They are easy to use, well planned out, and it gets the students to stay on task and use academic language when discussing the material. The information is easily retained and the students are making more and more connections with material previously covered in class.   Rodney Del Rio, Teacher, Delano, CA More Testimonials

Using Groups Effectively: 10 Principles » Edurati Edu - 50 views

    "Conversation is key . Sawyer succinctly explains this principle: "Conversation leads to flow, and flow leads to creativity." When having students work in groups, consider what will spark rich conversation. The original researcher on flow, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, found that rich conversation precedes and ignites flow more than any other activity.1 Tasks that require (or force) interaction lead to richer collaborative conceptualization. Set a clear but open-ended goal . Groups produce the richest ideas when they have a goal that will focus their interaction but also has fluid enough boundaries to allow for creativity. This is a challenge we often overlook. As teachers, we often have an idea of what a group's final product should look like (or sound like, or…). If we put students into groups to produce a predetermined outcome, we prevent creative thinking from finding an entry point. Try not announcing time limits. As teachers we often use a time limit as a "motivator" that we hope will keep group work focused. In reality, this may be a major detractor from quality group work. Deadlines, according to Sawyer, tend to impede flow and produce lower quality results. Groups produce their best work in low-pressure situations. Without a need to "keep one eye on the clock," the group's focus can be fully given to the task. Do not appoint a group "leader." In research studies, supervisors, or group leaders, tend to subvert flow unless they participate as an equal, listening and allowing the group's thoughts and decisions to guide the interaction. Keep it small. Groups with the minimum number of members that are needed to accomplish a task are more efficient and effective. Consider weaving together individual and group work. For additive tasks-tasks in whicha group is expectedtoproduce a list, adding one idea to another-research suggests that better results develop

    "Welcome to the Digital Education Research Network (DERN) for 2014. At the start of each school and academic year teaching subjects and courses for the coming year are often Edued and resources allocated. Questions invariably arise about the benefits of learning with digital technologies and the best ways to deploy digital technologies; that is, what are the current technology trends?"

An Open Letter to Students: You're the Game Changer in Next-Generation Learning (EDUCAUSE EDU) | EDUCAUSE.EDU - 120 views

  • I'll be blunt here. It's going to be hard for you to be heard as a credible advocate if you don't first lay down the gauntlet. That happens when you own key educational responsibilities and make the demand that if you fulfill these, you expect your claim to your core educational rights to be taken seriously. Simply put, your doing so could change the conversation completely—to one that is more literally and figuratively constructive
  • Knowing your larger purpose enables you to do what comes next.
  • Engagement means literally transforming the way you think and committing yourself to building those skill-sets you don't currently possess.

  • learning-centered, data-rich, high-value pathways to your educational goal
  • Our decisions, models, and innovations should be based, first, on learning.
  • not using technology
  • the learning-centered progression, one-on-one mentor model ensures that students and faculty engage on learning data early and often and that both regulate learning and navigate to completion
  • We in higher education should do the work to ensure that your learning is tied to the competencies expected in these career paths.
  • because of the rate of change in industry and society, we are probably preparing you for jobs that don't exist yet and life experiences you can't anticipat

The Evolving MOOC (EDUCAUSE EDU) | EDUCAUSE.EDU - 12 views

  • All content can be learned directly through the online courseware, but learning by students benefits from guidance by a teacher and conversations with peers
  • we aim to bring a valuable curricular resource to more students without removing the important role of face-to-face engagement.
    • Rafael Morales_Gamboa
      It is important to mention here that there is evidence that many people who takes MOOCs arrange meetings with others in the course that live near enough, in order to discuss the matter, help each other, and generally improve their learning experience. Face to face interaction does not have to be preestablished by the MOOC designer/provider, nor it have to take place in classrooms.
  • we decided to create curricula for teachers to bring to their classrooms using MOOC technology

MeaningPhil Stuff?: Web 2.0 in the Classroom - 6 views

  • I just finished teaching a computer ethics course at Judson University--okay, it's still Judson College now, but they will be changing to University this Fall ( I used a web 2.0 tool called diigo ( Diigo is an acronym for "Digest of Internet Information, Groups and Other stuff".It may be that you've heard of which is a very popular social bookmarking tool. Diigo is a social bookmarking tool plus annotation tool. It allows you to read an article, bookmark it, and within the article, make annotations like "highlighting" and "sticky note comments". This makes it an awesome research tool.In the past I have had students bring articles to class that pertain to the assigned chapters, but this time I made this an entirely digital activity. The students were to find online articles, book mark, annotate, and share them with the group forum that I set up for them. We then, with the group forum on the projector screen, would have each student talk us through their article.While this tool is still in "beta" the student assessment survey that was taken at the end of the last class seemed to indicate that this activity was well received.
