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

Promising Practices in Online Learning - iNACOL - 1 views

  • This series, Promising Practices in Online Learning, explores some of the approaches being taken by practitioners and policymakers in response to key issues in online learning in six papers being released throughout 2008 and 2009:
  • The title, Promising Practices, deliberately avoids the term “best practices.” There are too many approaches to online learning, and too many innovative teaching and learning strategies in the 21st century, for one method to be labeled “best.”
  •  
    The iNACOL website provides a vast wealth of information about online learning and, in particular, the Promising Practices page provides association responses to issues in online learning.

    I love this website for online teaching if you have to present a lot of content. I also use it if I have a lot of students who are going to be absent for a particular lecture. This site allows you to upload lecture motes of some kind, and then narrate those notes. Additionally, people you invite to view your presentation can make comments or ask questions within each individual slide. It's a fantastic tool for asynchronous teaching.

    Great site for interacting asynchronously in many forms.

    "Classroom 2.0 is a free, community-supported network. We especially hope that those who are "beginners" will find this a supportive comfortable place to start being part of the digital dialog. " While this isn't is a Web 2.0 tool, it looks like it might be a helpful group for beginners like me. Living in Laos, I like how international the group looks. Does anyone else have suggestions of this kind of support group for beginners?

    A tool for teachers

    Resources like Classroom 2.0 are what a lot of my "beginners" would benefit from. A community supported network aimed at easing one into the technology discussion and learning some cool resources along the way. I encourage teachers who want to find some level of comfort with technology to engage it through sites like Classroom 2.0
