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.

Does PowerPoint Help or Hinder Student Learning? | Faculty Focus - 3 views

  • oo often we forget how significantly teaching practices shape learning experiences and PowerPoint is a perfect example.
  • Most studies find that PowerPoint has “no measurable influence on course performance and minimal effect on grades
  • Yet students often report a favorable view of PowerPoint, saying it helps them with learning, content organization and note taking. The students in this cohort confirmed these positive effects
  • ...6 more annotations...
  • the software organized lecture content and indicated which points were most important.
  • And then there’s the potential of PowerPoint to oversimplify the material
  • What students need to know is reduced to a bulleted list of five items described in five words or less
  • also worry that using PowerPoint encourages passivity.
  • PowerPoint does not easily accommodate digressions or a change in order that responds to what’s happening at the moment.
    • Debi Griggs
      Although I seldom use PPT in classes, when I do it is to accommodate digressions. The points help me return to the major points of the activity or lesson.
    Ideas to keep in mind when one depends too much on PPT

Education Week's Digital Directions: Students Sound Off on School Tech Use - 0 views

    • mmac45
      I can't believe only half said they do this.
  • growing frustration among students that they have to “power down” their use of technology when they enter school buildings.
  • Outside of school, about half the 140,000 middle and high school students who participated in the survey reported using e-mail, instant-messaging tools, and text messages to communicate with classmates about homework, and the same number said they used social-networking Web sites to collaborate with their peers on school projects.

    What do students think about technology in the classroom... Click and see...Powerful to know what they are thinking....
    My high school principal shared this article with the faculty, and it sheds light on the way some students feel hampered whant trying to use technology in school. It offers some student insight and some surprising issues. Students don't use technology to communicate with others about homework as often as I thought. Also, students are well-aware of budgetary constraints.
    This article helps explain why we need to use more technology in the classroom.

      This web site provides excellent educational resources for clinical laboratory students.
    The resources I am sharing here are not necessarily directly related to online work or teaching - but they are resources I use on a regular basis and they could easily be incorporated into teaching clinical laboratory students. I'm also using them as a way to learn to use diigo.
