Rule 1 -- The Core Rules of Netiquette -- Excerpted from Netiquette by Virginia Shea -- - 7 views

  • Would you say it to the person's face?
    • Shavonne Bauer
      How true this is. If you were communicating face to face would you do this? Always keep this in mind when on the Internet.
  • When you communicate through cyberspace -- via email or on discussion groups -- your words are written. And chances are they're stored somewhere where you have no control over them. In other words, there's a good chance they can come back to haunt you.
    • Shavonne Bauer
      In other words, be prepared to explain what you have written online.

    • Dennis OConnor
      It's a good idea to assume that everything you write online is saved in a database somewhere and can be retrieved at any time by anyone. This includes course management systems!

  • Rule 1: Remember the human
    online etiquette
    Shea, the "network manners guru" and a student of human nature, reminds all online users to remember to use proper netiquette when conversing online. Her book is written for all users of the Internet. She states behind every computer screen is a human being. Unlike the computers they are working on, these human beings have feelings. She reminds people to remember this especially when conversing with one another through email. Unfortunately, she writes, since people are writing online they feel the right to say almost anything they wish without regard to the consequences when doing it through email. However, it is pointed out this is not an acceptable practice in the computer world. She provides a simple test to use each time an email is composed to check for proper netiquette - would this be said to another person's face? If the answer is yes, then it is safe to send. On the other hand, if the answer is no revising is necessary until the answer is yes. Her final concluding point reminds everyone what is written and sent remains a permanent record since it can be saved by someone, stored somewhere or forwarded thus saved forever. So remember, is this something you want remembered?

Humanizing online learning - 2 views

shared by Paul Jinks on 15 Dec 16 - No Cached
  • In our digital age of knowledge abundance, an educator's value is no longer derived through the delivery of content. Rather, our new focus is on designing human-centered learning experiences. humanized learning leverages the potential of digital technologies to bridge physical distances, connect people, foster relationships, and build community. This process blends course design and facilitation, while engaging the cognitive and affective domains of learning.
    Really nice slideshow about the importance of community for deep learning experiences online.

Music To The Mind - Activating Human Potential - AGE OF AUTISM - 0 views

  • Georgi Lozanov, a Bulgarian psychologist, developed a new learning and teaching method, Suggestopedia, in the 1960's which makes much use of barok music for relaxation and so-called 'concert readings'. Often used for foreign language learning, the method was examined and proven to be effective by UNESCO in the 1970's.
  • Dr. Alfred Tomatis, a French otolaryngologist, described in a book published in 1991 how certain pieces of Mozart music promote the development of the brain. The results of a scientific investigation into the 'Mozart Effect' were published in Nature in 1993, showing that listening to Mozart's Sonata for Two Pianos in D Major temporarily increased IQ scores by 8 to 9 points in specific spatial-temporal tasks.
  • Auditory Integration Training (AIT), which has found many followers in the USA. A study at the University of Illinois found significant decreases in epileptiform activity in 23 of 29 patients with epilepsy after listening for just 5 minutes to that same Mozart music.
    Article on how music affects learning by Steven Michaelis. Interesting to read the many effects that music has on humans, and its possibilities in relation to education and learning.

Cultural Evolution of Human Cooperation: Summaries and Findings | Cooperation Commons - 0 views

  • Genetically-evolved human capacities to invent and communicate led to social institutions that favored genotypes better able to live in cooperative groups — human nature is, to a large degree, defined by our social capabilities -- but the invention of culture took the evolution of cooperation into the symbolic and out of the genetic level. Authors call this the "social instincts hypothesis."
  • People are innately prepared to act as members of tribes, but culture tells us how to recognize who belongs to our tribes, what schedules of aid, praise, and punishment are due to tribal fellows, and how the tribe is to deal with other tribes: allies, enemies, and clients."
  • Once sociality, learning, and symbolic media make it possible to externalize and transmit individual learning, cooperative invention changes the game. Individual innovators can gain advantage through prestige and reputation, but only by displaying what they know, while learning and innovation enable the entire tribe to benefit from their innovations.

Online Courses - the Human Element - 4 views

  • Don't get me wrong: I have always been a fan of online education -- but with a few important caveats.
  • First off, subjects tend to be conveyed best in what might be considered their native environments. Computers might not be the best place to simulate a live philosophy seminar, but they are terrific places to teach people how to use and program computers.
  • Second, and just as important, computers should not require the humans using them to become more robotic. I recently read an account from an online lecturer about how -- unlike in a real classroom -- he had to deliver his online video lectures according to a rigid script, where every action was choreographed. To communicate effectively online, he needed to stop thinking and living in the moment. That's not teaching; it's animatronics.

  • Online learning needs to cater to human users. A real instructor should not simply dump data on a person, as in a scripted video, but engage with students, consider their responses and offer individualized challenges.
  • The good, living teacher probes the way students think and offers counterexamples that open pathways. With the benefit of a perfect memory of student's past responses, a computer lesson should also be able to identify some of these patterns and offer up novel challenges at the right time. "How might Marx have responded to that suggestion, Joe?"
  • Finally, education does not happen in isolation. Whether it's philosophy students arguing in a dorm about what Hegel meant, or fledgling Java programmers inspecting one another's code, people learn best as part of a cohort. The course material is almost secondary to the engagement. We go to college for the people. Likewise, the best of MOOCs should be able to bring together ideal, heterogeneous groupings of students based on their profiles and past performance, and also create ample opportunities for them to engage with one another in the spirit of learning.
    Words of warning to those who consider MOOCs as the end-all / be-all of modern education.

A pedagogy for Cultural Understanding & Human Empathy - The Learner's Way - 0 views

    How we see ourselves, how we describe ourselves reveals a great deal about how we see 'others'. In May of this year, speaking to the audience of the International Conference on Thinking, Bruno Della Chiesa invited us to consider how we might approach the question of "who we are?". In responding to such a question, what list of affiliations do we invoke to define ourselves?

Big Ideas - Exploring the Essential Questions of Education - 0 views

  • he quality of your life depends upon the quality of the questions you ask.”
  •     Enduring questions make life and learning engaging and interesting.
  •   We should ask enduring questions because they lead to thoughtful, soul searching reflection about great ideas. A great question generates deep thinking, rethinking, discourse, analysis, debate, and reflection. It challenges presuppositions, creates dilemmas, and requires more precise thinking

Human » Moodle tutorials (2 Minute Moodles) - 0 views

  • This is a collection of 2 Minute Moodles - an attempt to simplify and show how to use a range of Moodle features. The list will grow as I find time to cook some more. The tutorials try not to assume too much previous knowledge and are presented for the pragmatical and not necessarily tech-savy users (Moodle purists please excuse). They are a bit like that product I got the pun from - something quick and simple to get you going.

Journeys In 2.0 Teaching - powered by FeedBurner - 0 views

  • What is great about this project? Besides, all of the 2.0 technology used such as the ning, wiki, Skype, Youtube and on and on, the heart of it has to do with human connections. Some think that as soon as you add technology, you take out the human parts, but this has proved just the opposite. 
  • This is where the Arkanada Project is proving most valuable. The connections are real between the students in Cold Lake and North Little Rock. The accountability is high because the projects students are created are judged in the opinion of those who mean the most to them. We are very fortunate to work with students in NLRHS who have a lot of skill in the area of the video and television. The global impact will be further emphasized as we create content for instruction of project skills in podcast form on iTunes U and Youtube. Brining other schools into the project is also where I would like to see the project grow. More participation means more idea sharing, truly preparing our students to work in an interconnected global, media hungry world!

The Film | I AM The Documentary | Official Site - 3 views

  • Armed with nothing but his innate curiosity and a small crew to film his adventures, Shadyac set out on a twenty-first century quest for enlightenment.  Meeting with a variety of thinkers and doers–remarkable men and women from the worlds of science, philosophy, academia, and faith–including such luminaries as David Suzuki, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Lynne McTaggart, Ray Anderson, John Francis, Coleman Barks, and Marc Ian Barasch –  Shadyac appears on-screen as character, commentator, guide, and even, at times, guinea pig. An irrepressible “Everyman” who asks tough questions, but offers no easy answers, he takes the audience to places it has never been before, and presents even familiar phenomena in completely new and different ways.  The result is a fresh, energetic, and life-affirming film that challenges our preconceptions about human behavior while simultaneously celebrating the indomitable human spirit.
