New paper of Reigeluth: "Instructional Theory and Technology for the New Paradigm of E... - 2 views

  •  
    This article describes instructional theory that supports post-industrial education and training systems - ones that are customized and learner-centered, in which student progress is based on learning rather than time. The article describes universal methods of instruction, situational methods, core ideas of the post-industrial paradigm of instruction, the importance of and problems with task-based instruction, a vision of an instructional theory for post-industrial education and training, and the roles that may be played by the teacher, the learner, and technology in the new paradigm. Keywords: Instructional theory, post-industrial paradigm, task-basd instruction

    Is this Reigeluth's recent publication? I plan to include this in the reading list for next year. Thanks for sharing.

    I saw the news on Kursat Hoca's FB profile. It is published in Magazine about Distance Education (Revista de Educación a Distancia). I like the idea of learning without time constraints. I don't know why :)

    I just liked this video :) You will see that technology is integrated into nearly all lessons like physics, physical education and even history.

    For those who are looking for some inspiration for their thesis
  •  
    Mobiles and MOOC's are in my list along with "learning analytics"

    I've already joined both EdX and Coursera for 2013 spring courses to see the implementation process and how the changes will take place in time. Hoping to use my findings in the future.

WayBack Machine for Internet <<web.archive.org>> - 1 views

  •  
    This is not directly related with education, but I find it helpful for internet searches. Imagine that you find an article link, that is very precious for you but when you click it, it says "this page does not exist anymore" or something else that tell you there is no access. Then, you copy paste the link to this web site and if you are lucky you see the old page, full functional. This is useful especially when you look for old web resources. Good luck :)

Constructivism with Second Life Island Project - 1 views

  •  
    Here is my constructivist environment example. In the past, I installed the second life software considering that it was a game. I roamed and roamed in worlds that already were created, chatted with people in another countries with my avatar. Then I thought that it was boring. It was just like sitting on Sunshine and talking with friends. Why I had to do this via my computer? This video shows us how Second Life Worlds can be used to create constructivist learning environments. In the video, a Second Life World that was prepared by a group of people called TELLS TEAM is presented. In this world, you can attend lectures, have group meetings for discussion, work on simulations and role plays whereever you are. All participants including the teacher has an avatar and walking, sitting, chatting as if they were in the same room. In this project, learners are active participants. They roam, talk, immediately can fly to role playing sessions and etc. Teacher is only responsible to present initial knowledge. I could not find how they evaluate the learners. However, it is up to you. This environment is just a tool. You can arrange your role plays, your simulations, and also your assesment. Also they have some guides to use the environment effectively on this web site: https://sites.google.com/site/secondlifeuwnshss/Home

    The link to the pool that has been prepared for technology based educational materials for FATİH project. In this pool, teachers and students can send several educational materials that they created or they were using in classroom environment. They aim to extend the content with contributions of people who are actively in education in Turkey. However, it is obvious that the project needs professional e-content materials. Videos, pdf's are ok but multimedia based tools are needed.

    Erdem thank you for sharing this website, I haven't heard about this before. While I was teaching to elementary level children I used fenokulu.net a lot as a turkish source. Now I think I can also make use of this one in the future. I also liked the fact that the website contains the pdf formats of "Bilim ve Çocuk". Very rich website indeed :)
  •  
    Erdem, I wonder if there is any section on the website that include resources/guidelines for teachers. E.g. how to integrate those simulations in the classrooms.
  •  
    Canan, I hope it will help, thank you, Hocam, there are just materials in the pool. I downloaded 10th grade math teacher guidelines released by Ministry of Education and started to read some sections. I saw that they offer recommendations like "using a dynamic math software, students do...". However, I don't know if they will handle the learning and usage of such software in in-service trainings. I wish I could bring more information about the system but they have not answered my CV and my sample work yet,

CTLT Application Directory - 2 views

    I found this website while looking at Dr. Ana Paula Correia's several work. The website includes lots of technologies that can be used for educational purposes. It looks like an inventory that you can use for enriching your education with technology. One suggestion is that explanation for each technology should be increased, and the website might have several links for tutorials and etc.
  •  
    Erdem, Thanks for sharing. We are going to do a similar website (wiki) in the class that I will be teaching next semester, with your suggestions taken into considerations of course.

Low-Income Kids and Smartphones - 0 views

  •  
    Hope to see a similar result for Fatih project.
  •  
    Here I think the most important phrase is "when used properly". "Peggy Johnson, Qualcomm's president of global market development, believes that the improvement comes because students using smartphones have easier access to information at any time of day or night. They are also able to keep in contact with their classmates and even their teachers, which helps them stay on top of everything that goes on in school." When students have enough motivation to allocate more time to use these devices for such activities stated above, the finding that their learning is increased can be supported. Here again we reach the conclusion: How to use technology is important, since it is just a tool, and can well be used as a toy instead of educational material.
  •  
    Is this a case of learning or transfering the existing information without assimilating or accommodating into the classroom environment via technology? I think the meaning of learning is also changing. In near future, there will be no learning like we do I guess.

The e-Learning Revolution - 1 views

  • a 3min. video that outlines the growth of the eLearning industry with amazing facts and statistics that shows how fast online eLearning is growing. The video also illustrations the pain that organizations feel when trying to convert their material to SCORM compliant eLearning.
  •  
    E-learning compelled to investigate definitions of time and places. For training of mass it saves a lot of money, energy and time. But what about one-to-one face to face learning. I wonder whether there is an effect of looking through a screen and looking through to the lively eyes?

    This is video is generally about the time perception of people and its effects on human life. The first five minutes give background info, then it talks about the effects of time perception on educational processes. I found it very interesting, I hope will, too.

    There are so many interesting metaphors. I liked them. The associations between educational concepts and time perception are very interesting in this video.
