Powerful Provocations for Learning: Sparking curiosity and increasing engagement - The ... - 0 views

  •  
    Powerful learning begins with the perfect provocation. Creating, refining and skilfully presenting the perfect provocation is an essential capability for teachers hoping to engage their class in rich dialogue. Claims that the percentage of students engaged by their learning declines from 75 percent in fifth grade to 32 percent by eleventh grade suggests a need for a more provocative environment.

Engaged, Disengaged and Overengaged - The consequences of engagement on learning - The ... - 1 views

  •  
    If you consider the day to day life of many of our students today, you see that they have very little time that is free from some form of programmed activity. Indeed, it is increasingly the norm for families to fill their children's time with the maximum number of learning, sporting and co-curricular activities. Schools naturally are happy to facilitate this and many see the breadth of programmes that they offer as a measure of success. But is there a consequence to all this activity and constant state of engagement?

Why engagement matters for learning - The Learner's Way - 1 views

  •  
    This is not a story about the evolution of the world-wide-web. It is not about an evolutionary process of learning or a desire to engage in life-long learning. It is instead about the importance of purpose and engagement as factors in our learning.

MOOC Mess - 6 views

  •  
    Unfortunately, I was one of the students in this course. I was curious to see how this course would compare to some of the courses I'd taken at UW-Stout in e-learning and online teaching (content wise). From the start I felt like the course was very difficult in its instruction to students and it went down hill from there. It seemed as if the instructor was trying to fit the same methodology for a course with 40 students to a course 40,000. I'm certain there are many lessons to be learned. Looking at the bright side, it's likely that some research may come from this debacle and there will be improvements in the methodology of instruction for MOOCs. Currently, a MOOC course feels more like an online self-directed training course rather than an academic course with all the bells, whistles and ENGAGEMENT of a really well designed online experience.

    This article is a description of a study conducted with pre-health profession students assigned randomly to an experimental or control group to measure the effect of using Twitter as an educational intervention on student engagement and grades. The study contributes new evidence based knowledge for educators, counselors, and researchers interested in the effect of integrating technology into the learning environment. Midwest Consortium for Service-Learning in Higher Education and the Corporation for National and Community Service funded the study. Reynol Junco PhD, a licensed professional counselor and Associate Professor at Lock Haven University; Greg Heibergert MS, Advisor and Instructor for Pre-Health Professionals at South Dakota State University; and Eric Loken PhD, a Research Associate and Professor at Pennsylvania State University coauthored the article reporting on their study. The authors measured engagement using 19 questions extracted from the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) and grades using grade point average (GPA). Quantitative and qualitative analysis of Twitter activity and specific educational interventions using Twitter were described in rich detail. The outcomes were statistically significant increase in engagement and grades as measured by the modified NSSE and GPA. There were several limitations addressed in the study that could be opportunities for future studies. The authors pointed out that integrating social media in and of itself will probably not have the same effect. It is the engagement between faculty and students using the technology that the authors suggest make the difference in the outcomes.
