Microsoft HoloLens - 0 views

  •  
    Microsoft HoloLens is the first self-contained, holographic computer, enabling you to engage with your digital content and interact with holograms in the world around you. It is a miraculous device, I think. When watched the video, it is einevitable not to be excited. Its sale is only for app developer and it is also expensive, 3000 $. However, as it become widespread and develop, it may be a routine device. Also there is another video video, shot at Case Western Reserve University, shows doctors examining bodies as they float in midair, creating a new way to teach anatomy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKpKlh1-en0 Think about the time when that device become reachable easily, think about using it at the classes commonly. Maybe changing curriculum according to these or another augmented reality ones. I think, there could be revolution at education with these steps in the future. That pictures are taken from the presentation of that device; http://s01.shiftdelete.net/img/general_b/15-10/06/hololens.jpg http://s01.shiftdelete.net/img/content/15-10/06/hololens-2-1444146365.JPG Also, there is a funny(or sad) photoshop work related to possible usage of device at our country; http://s11.postimg.org/cukj78a4z/holoturk.png

    Members of this family are teaching the younger generation to weave a simple pattern of peonies. The younger boy (rear) clearly has no idea what he's doing as he plays with the instruments and materials.

Beyond Amplification - 1 views

  •  
    In this article Roy Pea, who is one of the pioneers of learning sciences, discussing how computers are changing our cognitive lifes beyond amplifying. Article first supports this proposition, then discusses implications of applying computer-based technologies into education. Lastly it suggests updating educational practices in order to be harmonious with this new emerging cognitive life. This article is also important for being quite early, it constitutes one of the foot stones of the learning sciences area.

    This was a great summary of this week's reading. Thanks Serap! :)

Mindsticks app - 6 views

    Combining technology with a constructivist educational system.
  •  
    I wasn't sure if this was a legitimate app, but turns out it is! I love it when people collaborate to create projects like this. Reminded me of (although individual) student portfolios of Stanford's LDT master's graduates. Examples can be found here: https://ed.stanford.edu/ldt/students/ma-projects Thank you for sharing this Kutay :)

Case study: Teaching transferable skills through online peer collaboration and assessment - 0 views

  •  
    This video includes a case study from Biology department of Bristol University. Re-development of a compulsory second year unit "Science and Success: Writing, Speaking and Communicating Science" switched from a paper-based to an online system. All aspects including submissions, peer collaboration, feedback, and marking happen online, using Blackboard. Feedback data is downloaded from Blackboard into Excel, where it is manipulated and turned into feedback packages for students. The results yeals a great positive impact of online collaboration on students.
  •  
    Thank you Özlem. This video is a good example of integration of CSCL to a course.

What is design thinking? - 1 views

  •  
    Suppose you are part of a thriving business and need to branch out and find that next big thing. Or say you want to change a behavior, like getting people...a lot of people...to use less energy in their homes. How would you go about it? Design thinking is a powerful tool to tackle the unknown. It's a means of going on an expedition, without a map, without even knowing the destination, but with the confidence that you'll end up somewhere great. Let's make it tangible with an example that captures the five key elements of design thinking. Daylight was given the challenge of getting kids in America to move more to help fight childhood obesity. The project started with an idea--provide kids with a digital music player that has a motion sensor, then give them rewards based on their activity. But the big question was, would kids really use it? What could make the experience so compelling that they would use it long enough to see the health benefits.
  •  
    Very nice video on design thinking. We can clearly see how they continuously modify the end product after collecting data of its users. First they talk to target group to have an idea about how an activity meter can be. Based on their ideas, they try to find patterns which will later evolve to design principles. Based on those principles, they develop a real product-an activity meter. Then they use it iteratively with children and make modifications in order to make it better and better. It is a clear video of how to do a design study.

WCER : Projects : How Do Instructional Gestures Support Students' Mathematics Learning? - 1 views

  •  
    There are many different factors investigated affecting students' mathematics learning before in the literature. However I had never read a research project about the instructional gestures supporting learning. It reveals that the gestures have a substantial role in comprehension. The results even shows that some studies triggers the learning even roughly twice.
  •  
    This is quite interesting. I am curious to hear more about the results of this research.

The school with no rules - 4 views

  •  
    A school principal in New Zealand lets his pupils do what they like at playtime. Is it good for learning, or has he gone too far?
  •  
    İbrahim, thanks for sharing. This is really interesting. I am just wondering if over time kids create their own rules, just like we did when we played on the streets in ancient times :)
  •  
    Hi, there is a little problem with the heading. This is about "play time with no rules". School is the same, only in play time, students have more freedom.

Türkiye'de öğretmen maaşı ortalama 1700 euro! (MU??) - 1 views

    Türkiye'nin OECD ülkeleri arasında eğitime en az pay ayrılan ülke olduğunu belirten Yıldıran, öğretmenlerin aldığı ücretlerle ilgili şaşırtan rakamlar verdi. Yıldıran, "Kadrolu öğretmenler ülkemizde yılda ortalama 22 bin euro maaş alıyor, bu 1700 euro gibi aylık maaşa karşılık geliyor" dedi.

Türkiye'de öğretmenlerin sorunları neler? - BBC Turkce - Haberler - 1 views

  •  
    En büyük sorun itibar kaybı :(
  •  
    Teachers are the ones we always put blame on!!! They don't prepare students very well for the university entrance exam, they don't implement the curriculum effectively, they resist innovation, changes etc. In Turkey, teaching is mostly a profession of last choice. Losing reputation is not a problem, it is a result. Restoring it can not be done by increase in wages, providing facilities for them etc. When education becomes a prior area for all of us, teacher's reputation will be restored then, I think.
