Educational approach - WikiEducator - 0 views

  • With regards to digital resources, regrettably there is an inverse relationship between reusability and the educational design of teaching resources. Learning is always contextual, because the demands of the learning tasks may change and the characteristics of individual student groups are usually very different. Good teaching requires careful refinements and adaptations according to student needs in different learning situations.

    This Wikieducator site may be of interest to those of you creating and sharing online resources. I'm just beginning to explore it.
  •  
    "The primary aim of Wikieducator is to promote the freedom of educators to teach using open education resources (OERs)" (Introduction, ¶1). This MediaWiki page distinguishes "between interoperability and reusability" and illustrates "the reusability dilemma" (Reusability in education, ¶¶ 4-5).

There are many excellent online tools available in these three categories, making the selection difficult at best. However, the selection was made based on reviewing available online resources along with other contributions and feedback from teachers.

How should we use the tagging system to b... | Diigo - 0 views

    • Joao Alves
       
      It's very to do if you use the Diigo toolbar. Just selelct the text you want to highlight and then click on the arrow beside the "Comment" button on the Diigo toolbar. There choose "Add a floating sticky note to this page." Then you'll get a pop-up window where you can choose to make your note private (only you can see it) or public or share it with a specific group. I am sharing this sticky note with the Learningwithcomputers group.
    • jennifer verschoor
       
      Thanks for sharing this!!! This is wonderful and we can continue discussing tags, categories or lists with the floating sticky notes.

      Isn't it nice, Jen, this feature? Can you envision pedagogical uses of it in the classroom?
    • Sasa Sirk
       
      These sticky notes are cool. :-) Thanks for sharing this.
    • Joao Alves
       
      Yes, these floating sticky notes are really cool.
      Maybe we could encourage students to use them to make comments on texts they read on the Net. Who knows they would enjoy this way of reading and writing. Well, it's just a thought, maybe a too optimistic one.
    • Carla Arena
       
      We are all optimistic, aren't we, João? Maybe if we started not expecting that the students would write the sticky notes, but, at least, read ours, they could be encouraged to go further. For example, we could have them read a text and use the sticky notes for comprehension, reflection. What do you think?
    • Joao Alves
       
      Hi Carla, I like your idea of letting students read our sticky notes first. That would certainly be a good start. We wouldn't ask them to do anything in the beginning except looking at and reading our sticky notes. Maybe they (at least some of them) might also want to try using the sticky notes the same way. And we teachers mustn't show a too great enthusiasm for it, just behave the normal way or even show a kind of uninterested interest. :-) That's a lesson I learned. :-)
    • Carla Arena
       
      Exactly, Joao. That's the way I tend to do it, casually! I guess that if we just give the students a link with our annotation, like asking questions, then some of them would be. at least, curious to learn how we did that!
    • Joao Alves
       
      Exactly. Let's try that. It seems we are excellent educators. :-)
  • tag things with as many keywords as possible
  • tag things so they are easier for others to find
  • ...29 more annotations...
  • choose any or all of the recommended tags for your bookmarks.
  • you could simply use quotation marks for "lesson plan"
  • there are no better tags than others.
  • we should agree on a special tag for the group like "LWC" that we would always add to every bookmark we tagged.
  • Organizing tags in topics or bundles
  • CamelCase is my favorite for MultiWordTags
  • plural forms for countable nouns.
  • Take, for instance, collaborat, a tag I tend to favor in de.licio.us to capture the essence of collaborate, collaboration, collaborative, and collaborators
  • awareness-raising,
  • are means of raising awareness
  • wondering if there're any shortcut suggestions to 'attacking' the project of revisiting and tagging them?
  • I've been tagging many things both ESOL and ESL (because I don't know if diigo would automatically search for both. Is there a way to find out ?
  • we're moving from just collecting resources to a more engaged collective way of making the best out of the resources we share with the group.
  • the power of folksonomies is exactly having everybody tagging as much as possible, with as much key-words as you can think of. We won't ever be able to create a true "system"
  • agging for personal use x tagging for public good
  • Tagging will always be ambiguous because our very personal ways of classifying things and making them useful for us. Even so, with folksonomies, we're able to see the latest trends in a determined group or about a certain topic, we can go to places never imagined before.

  • I need to be more consistent.
  • The] "Lists" [function] provides another great way to organize bookmarks, a way that is complementary to tagging
    • Ilse Mönch
       
      Hi, yes I agree "Lists" are a great way to organize bookmarks. I already made a list for my "teaching resources" items as a try and now I'm going to experiment with the webslides. The only thing is that I imported my bookmarks from delicious and it's hard work to organize them all :-)
  •  
    So, how could we organize our tagging system after this week's discussion? Give some practical hints here.

    I'll start with:

    - try to keep a single word tag
    - add as many tags as you can think of
    - think of individual uses of the tags you're using, as well as the collective needs of easy retrieval of resources
    - tag, tag, tag
    - pay attention to mispelled words
    - use the groups' recommended tags in addition to the ones you've already used
