Discovery Education Web2014 : Web 2.0 Tools - Community - 2 views

  • Community Tools Community-building and collaboration are two defining aspects of Web 2.0. A range of tools enable teachers and students to communicate, collaborate and share work. Some, like Edmodo, are designed specifically for educators. This Twitter-like tool lets you create custom mini-communities for classes, clubs, parents, etc and push out assignments, reminders and updates. Others, like GoogleDocs, are for general use but conducive to inter- and intra-school collaboration—in real time. All are easy to use. Case in point: a wiki—the Hawaiian word for "quick"—can be set up in 5 minutes!
  • Social platform for students & teachers

      Great way to connect educators with students in a causal setting.

      Might be a cool way to connect students in online classrooms. - Mark
    I found these suggestions for community tools to be very helpful. Some are already being utilized in my classroom (google docs), but others would be a great addition!
    Using Web 2.0 and the tools presented can be implemented into the classroom. Students and teachers will share technology in the workings of educational learning. These rules from Web 2.0 will become very useful when using lectures, worksheets, and online educational goals.

Wikispaces - Campus - K-12 Education - 0 views

      Could use this as a place to share discussions and create an online community within the classroom. A little more professional than Edmodo so the students don't treat it like Facebook

  • Student Portfolios Each student cultivates a unique online space to showcase their best work, and teachers assess performance as it progresses.
  • Project-Based Learning Student groups collaborate on projects that address real-world questions, and share their findings with a real-world audience.
  • Student Assignments Teachers post homework, group work, and classroom goals
    Seems like a great way to great a class site. Would work for communication and have full access. Not sure what the cost break down would be like for a district in comparison to other online environments.
    Wikis can enrich the writing classroom by providing fun ways for students to collaborate and learn from each other.

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

    • Kait Sanford
      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.
    • Rebecca Brink
      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.

    Another interesting tool that would have multiple uses in Training and Development, adding more pizzaz to courses.
    Love the idea of adding creativity to presentations and sharing with families/community.  I could see using this to document our activities in the summer school class I will be assisting - Jump Start for incoming freshmen!

Build Your Own Academic Community with Commons in a Box - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of... - 2 views

  • But what if you want a bit more functionality for your classroom? What if you’d like to run a blog, a discussion forum, and a wiki for your students to use? Or what if that community that you want to reach out to is much, much larger than a classroom? In that case, I’d recommend you check out Commons in a Box (CBOX).

ThinkQuest : Projects - 0 views

  • Why Integrate into the Classroom? Projects provide a flexible framework for engaging students in exploring curricular topics and developing important 21st century skills, such as communication, teamwork, and technology skills. In addition, students are motivated by the fun and creative format and the opportunity to make new friends around the world.
    Great for science projects! Allows students to interact with other students world wide. Environment projects, data collection of all types, discussion of social issues, possibilities seem endless!

How Did Howard Rheingold Get So "Net Smart": An Interview (Part One) - 4 views

    "Your progression from work on virtual communities to smart mobs to digital literacies says something about the evolution of digital culture over the past few decades.

Considerations when using online questioning and discussion | Penn State Learning Desig... - 8 views

    " Establish teams and allow students to work together to post a final revised response. This results in fewer messages for you to read. Consider size and number of teams. Try to have no more than seven students on a team. Create clear guidelines for collaborating online and working in teams. "
    I have found that I initially have to make my groups very large due to the large amount of students who were thrown into the class and have no desire to succeed. Furthermore, I'll change groupings to ensure that one student isn't doing all the work for a group.

Essay on flawed interpretations of research on remedial education | Inside Higher Ed - 0 views

    This is Boylan and Goudas' most recent contribution to the debate about how to best meet the needs of students with high school diplomas but without college-level skills in 2- and4-year colleges.  Several links within the text take readers to additional resources which may be of interest.
Mary Ann Saurino - 0 views

    This recent publication is a strong statement demanding the dismantling of developmental education as currently provided by 2 and 4-year institutions of higher education.  The facts are sobering: most students who enter college and have to take "developmental" (or pre-college level classes in reading, writing and/or math) never complete either the remedial sequence or a certificate or degree. However, the recommendation, that developmental education be set aside and replaced with a completely different model is controversial, too.  I'm posting another text that presents the National Center for Developmental Education (NCDE) response to this text.

  • 1. Instructors participating in online teaching must possess a wide scope of knowledge and varied and appropriate credentials. This knowledge can include life experience as well as "book smarts," and should be applied as often as possible to assist and help students within the class.
  • 2. The instructor must be careful when exhibiting emotions and needs to remain open while showing that he or she cares. Furthermore, the instructor needs to remain flexible to students' issues and concerns and should always be as sincere as possible when dealing with students.
