MAKE BELIEFS COMIX! Online Educational Comic Generator for Kids of All Ages - 2 views

      For summary activities, I sometimes give students the option to create their own comic strip. Some students choose to pick a different activity because they do not think they are an artist. This would help make everyone feel that they could create their own comic strip summary!
    • Melissa Shasteen
       
      All these adds might be a bit distracting for students.

      I am a very visual person, and I had a hard time navigating the page with all of the distracting elements. Students so often like to be able to master something so quickly that if they can't, they may choose to not use this.

      This is a great way to integrate differentiation into the classroom, especially for a tiered assignment. If a student struggles to comprehend plot summary, he or she can use this to demonstrate what he/she understood from the text or there could be additional elements added to up the difficulty level.

‪Cultivating Communities of Practice: Making Them Grow‬‏ - YouTube - 0 views

  • Communities of Practice are everywhere (Wenger, 1998).

    While this may be the case, it is possible to examine an organisation and find empty spaces where opportunities to cultivate communities of practice (CoPs) exist, and as one does, many questions relating to how this journey is best started begin to arise. As there is general agreement amongst a number of CoP scholars that communities of practice cannot be designed or created (Barab et al, 2002, Wenger & Snyder, 2000), seeking to learn about best practice in encouraging these communities to develop is the next step.

      Purpose of the community of practice

Communities of practice have also become an important focus within organizational development and have considerable value when thinking about working with groups. The article outlines the theory and practice of such communities, and examine some of issues and questions for ieducators and those concerned with lifelong learning.

Ten Best Practices for Teaching Online - 17 views

  • his is the tool that helps a widely dispersed group of students and faculty become a learning community.
  • We have learned to quantify what it means to "be present." The "best o
  • e" faculty -- according to students -- are faculty who show their presence multiple times a week, and at best daily. Setting clear expectations at the beginning of a course with course policies is very helpful, however and can reduce the need for daily presence if that is not your particular style. Setting regular times when you can meet in a virtual classroom, and thus be available -- almost in real time similar to office hours, can be invaluable.

  • Set up problem-solving forums
  • Encourage use of a general open student forum for students to post and request help and assistance
  • Set up small groups where students can assume responsibility for supportive mentoring of fellow students and summarizing key points of a class assignment.
  • faculty identify the core concepts to be learned in a course -- the performance goals -- and then mentor learners through a set of increasingly complex and even customized projects applying these core concepts.
  • This best practice cannot be overemphasized
  • Launch the class with a personal introduction posting
  • few hints for discussion postings
  • www.designingforlearning.info/services/writing/ecoach/index.htm.
  • variety of activities and experiences
  • about week 3, ask for informal feedback on "How is the course going?" and "Do you have any suggestions?
  • Combine core concept learning with customized and personalized learning

      This may be very subjective according to the type of course taught. Stricking the right balance between core content and personal learning makes r breaks a course.
  • Liberal use of a faculty's use of communication tools such as announcements, discussion board postings, and forums communicate to the students that the faculty member cares about who they are, cares about their questions and concerns, and is generally "present" to do the mentoring and challenging that teaching is all about.
  • A good strategy for developing a supportive online course community is to design a course with a balanced set of dialogues. This means designing a course so that the three dialogues of faculty to student, student to student and student to resource are about equal. In most online courses, the dialogue of faculty to student is provided with (1) mini-lectures in text or video or audio podcasts, (2) weekly coaching and reminder announcements and (3) explanations/interactions with the students.
  • Include on your course site a set of expectations for how students communicate and dialogue online and how they communicate with you.
