​The Future of Online Learning Is Offline: What Strava Can Teach Digital Cour... - 1 views

  •  
    "One of the biggest misunderstandings about online learning is that it has to be limited to things that can be done in front of a computer screen. Instead, we need to reimagine online courses as something that can enable the interplay between offline activities and digital augmentation. . . . We need to focus . . . more on finding ways to robustly capture evidence of offline learning that can be validated and critiqued at scale by peers and experts online."

Bloom's Digital Taxonomy Verbs [Infographic] - 1 views

  •  
    "When using Bloom's Digital Taxonomy (a revised take on Bloom's devised by educator Andrew Churches), it helps to have a list of verbs to know what actions define each stage of the taxonomy. This is useful for lesson planning, rubric making, and any other teacher-oriented task requiring planning and assessment strategies." [Karen, thanks for passing this along!]

Stop Assigning Team Projects...Unless... - 2 views

  •  
    Research findings: "Faculty who assign team projects without preparing their students to work in teams greatly increase the likelihood that students will have a negative experience and student learning and performance will suffer. Teaching teamwork content is necessary but not sufficient for important educational and performance outcomes. Providing ongoing teamwork support is critical to team success and student learning."

Learning Out Loud: Make Online Courses Meaningful and Accessible - 1 views

  •  
    "The case for learning out loud extends beyond the development of effective communication skills. An asynchronous, multimodal learning environment that invites students to verbally converse with one another has been shown to improve the social and emotional elements of learning."

Should Your Online Course Sound Like 'Serial'? - 0 views

  •  
    "Rethinking the variety of voices and formats will not only be better for engagement, but also for learning. Rather than presenting information in scripted bullet points like an old-fashioned e-learning module, we should experiment with formats like debates, conversations, open-ended inquiry and stories in online courses. This will require students to extrapolate key points, synthesize what they've heard, and sometimes leave with more questions than clear take-aways."

  •  
    French university École 42 torches the instruction manual on how to educate software engineers. It eliminates teachers. It doesn't make students memorize facts, or even buy books. There's no syllabus or curriculum to be found anywhere in the school's Paris headquarters. And to top it off, it doesn't charge students any tuition or fees.

4 Reasons Why Online Learning Drives Residential Classroom Innovation - 0 views

  •  
    "Instructional designers are consumers (and sometimes producers) of the learning science literature - and they bring this knowledge base into their work with faculty.
    Once faculty have the opportunity to learn and apply learning science research for their online courses, they will want to do the same for their residential courses."
