Edmodo | Where Learning Happens | Sign up, Sign In - 4 views

      Edmoto is a great way to introduce students to online communities. It models Facebook, which could be dangerous if teachers are trying to create learning community and not just a social community. However, it is a great stepping stone into what online courses involve.

      I agree that it models Facebook quite closely. I saw this as a perk in the light that it was easy for them to grasp how to use.

    "Edmodo helps connect all learners with the people and resources needed to reach their full potential."
    I tried using this as a Learning Management System (LMS) a few years ago.  I was introduced to it through a Science Technology and Mathematics (STEM) Institute I attended.  I found it to be beneficial in aiding students with personal responsibility, by having information available at all times to access.  I moved away from using it when Google Documents became a feature for all of our students.  It was much easier to share that way.  We know use Haiku Learning that has many similar features but allows for Google Drive being linked.
    This is great for having class discussions that you want to be private, so that you as the teacher can facilitate the conversation.
    online outlet for student collaboration
    Students can take quizzes, share ideas, work on assignments and discover new resources.
    I would use this community tool for cooperative learning activities. The value of other perspectives from different backgrounds is paramount as students collaborate on a given topic.

Using Diigo in the Classroom - Student Learning with Diigo - 9 views

  • One common problem of student computer use in schools is access to student work from home. Not every school provides a way for students to access their school data. In such cases, if students create bookmarks at school, they will not have access from other computers.
  • Using Diigo, students can bookmark important websites and access them from school, home, the library or any internet-connected computer. Students will always have access to this data.

    After taking E-Learning for Educators I decided to try Diigo in a face to face course I work on. Many students have really appreciated it, especially those who don't own laptops and work from various school computers. For our two week term break we've asked each student to bookmark two articles with a short explanation why they have selected it as well as reesponding to at least one that someone else wrote as a way to encourage extensive reading. It has been fascinating to see the articles they are selected (these are Lao students preparing for university study in Australia) and their reactions to it. I've also set up a Diigo group for teachers at my school as a way to share articles that previous we'd print off or email around. Thank you E-learning for Educators for introducing me to this great tool!
    I should just add that I love getting the daily digest of updates from this group and often go directly to those articles, even if I don't always make it back to the group site.
    What a great idea to create a Diigo group for the teachers in your school. Yet another way to share and create a community with your fellow faculty members. Thanks for sharing!

Flipped Classroom A New Learning Revolution - 3 views

  • Flipped Classroom is an inverted method of instruction where teaching and learning take place online outside of the class while  homework is done in the classroom. Advocators of this approach believe that this is the ideal method of instruction in our digital age. They basically build their judgement on the following facts :
  • Flipped Classroom shifts the learning responsibility and ownership  from the teacher's hands  into the students'.  Students tend to perform better when they control when, where and how they learn. Teachers no longer dispense knowledge but rather guide and direct while students are the real active learners  Teachers create animated videos and interactive lessons and lectures and students access them at home in advance of class even. In this way all students can re-watch the video tutorials whenever they want. Classroom time can be geared towards data collection, collaboration, and application. Class becomes a place for students to work through problems, advance concepts, and engage in collaborative learning. Flipped Classroom also "allows teachers to reflect on and develop quality and engaging learning opportunities and options for internalization, creation, and application of content rather than just fluff or time filling assignments."
    It's interesting how the concept of a "flipped classroom" is a "new" learning revolution. Has anyone heard of Kolb and experiential learning, or the Montessori method, or the work of Dewey? These "flipped classroom" theories have been around for years.

    I love this web site for suggestions for great books to read for my book clubs. You type in titles or genres you or the kids have enjoyed in the past, and they give you recommendations. (think Pandora for books) I have two for my student book clubs and one for my personal reading pleasure. One thing I love is it will make a "book shelf" of hot reads in html code that can then be copied and pasted to your library web site so that kids can see suggested reading.

    Think of a slide tile desktop. Each tile can be linked to places on the Internet. Could be fun too create a collage of interesting sites, images, etc. Might make an interesting mashup of search results for an online assignment.
