Education Week: At-Risk Students Face E-Learning Challenges - 3 views

  • Stepping into a virtual learning environment can help struggling students interact with curricula in a new way, begin learning with a clean slate, and provide more flexibility to accommodate work or family obligations, say educators and experts working online with students who are at risk of academic failure. But none of those factors will make such students successful unless they have the support and resources they need to engage with the material and the motivation to work hard for their credits, experts stress.

US DOE Evaluation of Evidence-based Practices - 2 views

    The article Evaluation of Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning: A Meta-Analysis and Review of Online Learning Studies is a study undertaken at the behest of the U.S, Department of Education to evaluate online learning practices through a meta-analysis of research. It is intended for policy-makers, administrators and educators to use to make research based decisions on online learning and teacher preparation at the K-12 level. The original plan was to have it completed by 2008, but there were so few rigorous studies available that they waited until 2010 to include more. In a search of the literature from 1994-2008, only 5 studies were found of sufficient rigor to measure effectiveness of online learning in K-12 students. The remaining 43 studies were for older learners, with most content being from the medical or health care field. The lead author, Dr. Barbara Means, directs the Center for Technology in Learning at SRI International, an independent nonprofit research organization. Her focus is on the relationship between technology, education systems, and student learning. Four research questions were addressed: * How does the effectiveness of online learning compare with that of face-to-face instruction? * Does supplementing face-to-face instruction with online instruction enhance learning? * What practices are associated with more effective online learning? * What conditions influence the effectiveness of online learning? The findings that were most interesting to me were: * Guiding questions provided to discussion groups influence the way students interact, but not the amount they learn. * Learning is enhanced when students can manipulate media or reflect. * Videos do not influence learning more than assigning homework, unless students can manipulate them. * Online quizzes do not influence learning more than homework. * Explicitly taught self-reflection, self-regulation and self

    Mini lesson videos on math concepts for all ages. Most videos are 3-5 minutes long.
    Khan Academy has been a great asset in working with families who are educating at home. There are many wonderful lessons on many different topics!
    The Khan Academy is an organization on a mission. They area a not-for-profit with the goal of changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education for anyone anywhere. All of the site's resources are available to anyone. It doesn't matter if you are a student, teacher, home-schooler, principal, adult returning to the classroom after 20 years, or a friendly alien just trying to get a leg up in earthly biology. The Khan Academy's materials and resources are available to you completely free of charge. I teach Title I students in K-12. With that many grades, I am always looking for resources that can help to enhance my reading and math lessons. I found that the presentations are easy to understand and it also exposes my urban students to working online.

Feedback on Using Prezi? - 6 views

      Incredible! I thought Powerpoint presentations were getting pretty advanced these day, and then I see this! This has many benefits as others have already mentioned, but to add to theirs, this is an great tool to use if you are working in a group and aren't in the same city because it allows you to co-develop a presentation with people in any location.
    amazing tool sent to me by Jason

    I was amazed how easy this site was to improve the whole power point creation process
    Some people love these. Might be useful for delivering content online, in a blended class, or in a flipped f2f class.
    How successful have people found transferring power point presentations to prezis? I am in the process of creating one on European schools of art, and another for an informational parent meeting. So far, it seems like they are much more interesting to follow than traditional power points.
