Taking time to design programmes for understanding - The Learner's Way - 1 views

  •  
    Identifying what our children need to learn is one of the most important processes within education. For the teacher this is the question they engage with as they design their teaching and learning units. By no means is this an easy task and the teacher must balance multiple factors to ensure that the programmes they design provide their students with the learning they require. Even the most effective sequence of lessons is of little value if what it sets out to teach has little importance in the lives our learners are likely to lead.

Deeper eLearning Design: Part 6 - Putting It All Together | Learnnovators - 2 views

  •  
    "This is the sixth and final post in a series of six that covers Deeper eLearning. The goal of this series is to build upon good implementations of instructional design, and go deeper into the nuances of what makes learning really work. It is particularly focused on eLearning, but much of what has been mentioned also applies to face-to-face or virtual instruction. We've covered objectives, practice, concepts, examples, and the emotional component. Here we're talking about putting it all together."

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.

Designing Courses with a Progression of Learning Experiences | Faculty Focus - 11 views

  • we want students engaged, interacting and learning the content collectively
  • we want these group experiences to teach students something about working with others—how disagreements can be handled constructively, how work can be divided equitably, how the group can influence what individual members do.
  • Perhaps each one focuses on a different skill or each one requires more sophisticated use of developing skills. This means the order in which they’re experienced matters. Each experience should build on what happened in the previous one.

  • Teachers who aspire to develop critical thinking abilities in their students must start with a clear understanding of what it is they want students to be able to do
  • make it possible for students to see that courses are not islands but rather connected territories where what they learn in one relates to what they learn in the other

    Plan courses to build learning experiences within the course and in the sequence of the courses.

Incorporating Active Learning Requires Purposeful Design | Faculty Focus - 1 views

  • If students are working together to solve a problem and the teacher is available but only asks students questions, chances are good that more than one student in the group is actively thinking and talking about the content
  • it can mean that activities aren’t selected and sequenced with some overall plan in mind
  • what’s happening in classrooms is activity simply for the sake of activity. Active learning has become something teachers use to keep basically bored students awake and attentive

  • Are you using enough active learning to make a difference

    Alexander, the Google Good to Know You site is terrific. I've never seen it before. I like the short videos that explain technical terms and concepts like IP addresses and cookies. I recommend this site to all! It's a good way too understand the concepts of Internet safety and data security. It will also help build our technical vocabulary!
