Online Plagiarism: What it Is, and What the Consequences Are - Distance Education.org - 8 views

  •  
    "No matter what type of school you attend, it's important to know the definition of plagiarism. The more you know about it, the easier it will be for you to avoid doing it by mistake."

    Scroll down and view the video.

    Kris, it's a goofy video, but I think it's something students can relate to and they'll remember. Like you said, it might make a greater impact than just the teacher telling them not to plagiarize.

Creating Assignments That Work for Digital Learning Environments -- THE Journal - 18 views

  •  
    Teachers who spend time actually thinking through assignments that align with the learning outcomes of a course are the most effective at assessing the learning that has taken place. Now, however, even the most creative teachers are being stretched like never before in regards to creating assignments that work in technology-rich learning environments. While evaluating learning in the purest sense might never really be possible given the scope of variables, new technologies are making it more achievable than ever before.

TeachersFirst Review - Tag Galaxy - 1 views

  •  
    Tag Galaxy is an amazing way to find a collection of Flickr images to illustrate or reinforce concepts. This site provides an unusual search tool that makes the online combing process a visual experience. This search tool pulls tags from photographs on Flickr, while taking you on a spinning journey through outer space. As the results settle, viewers come to rest in a galaxy containing one large star in the center and a series of outer planets. The central star contains all the images directly relating to the initial tag. The revolving planets consist of similar or corresponding tags. Click on a planet and additional sub-categories will appear. Click on the central star and Flickr images gather, and land on a gigantic 3D sphere. Select a photo to view, read the credits and caption. From here, it is possible to go directly to the author's Flickr Page and enjoy more photographs by the same artist. This site is also intriguing because of the way it illustrates the unfolding of the search process. It is the perfect site to use when explaining how Internet tags work, and how to organize and sort information. The site is the result of a Steven Wood's graduation thesis project while at Georg Simon Ohm University of Applied Sciences in Nuremberg.

Teaching Without Walls: Life Beyond the Lecture - 1 views

  •  
    Sharing ideas, engaging in large and small group discussions, and doing presentations are all regular components of face-to-face learning and I'd imagine the thought of removing all of these verbal activities from offline college classes would rile up some concerns.  So, why is it that we aren't focusing more on the integration of voice into a students' online learning experience?

GoSoapBox: New Instant Student Feedback App | TeachHUB - 4 views

  •  The new web-based application GoSoapBox allows teachers to gauge student understanding or confusion levels throughout a lesson, poll students and track the data for future reference. It can be used on laptops, tablets and smart phones, which sets it apart from some other clicker/student response systems
  • I think most people would say that the Confusion Barometer is the most innovative feature. Students can indicate when they are confused with the click of a button, and the teacher sees a graphical representation, showing the trend in the number of confused students over time.
  • We truly believe that a teacher can learn and begin using GoSoapBox in 15 minutes.
  • ...5 more annotations...
  • Outside of class, GoSoapBox allows teachers to export a spreadsheet containing all of the data from the interaction during class
  • During class, GoSoapBox is a great way to assess comprehension on an aggregate level. Voting for questions allows teachers to see the most pressing issues, the confusion barometer displays confusion among the entire class, and polls can be used to quickly assess comprehension on a class-wide level
  • What differentiates GoSoapBox is the custom level of engagement that can be achieved, combined with ease of adoption. Clickers and other competitive products seem to focus on teachers engaging students with questions, and while GoSoapBox accomplishes polls and quizzes just as well, it also promotes students engaging the teacher with questions
  • And unlike many of our competitors, teachers don’t have to re-design their curriculum to best fit GoSoapBox – they can customize GoSoapBox to best fit their style of teaching
  • What are the technology requirements to use GoSoapBox? The requirements all depend on what you want to use GoSoapBox for. In terms of using GoSoapBox during class, the requirements are....Teacher: Access to a device that connects to the InternetStudent: Access to a device that connects to the InternetSchool: Wi-Fi (unless students are all using smartphone data plans, 3G, etc.
