Why do 60% of students find their lectures boring? - 0 views

  •  
    Article in the Guardian Education about why students find lectures boring. Unsurprisingly, PowerPoint is mentioned as a factor although reading further it's the usual story of the inappropriate use of PowerPoint rather than the existance of Powerpoint itself. I went to some extremely tedious lectures during my degree...it is possible to bore with a blackboard too! I would be interested in seeing more details of the types of lecture that students actually *like*!
  •  
    Actually, it's just struck me...we have these awards where students nominate staff. We get a lot of nominations. What is it that students actually *like* about what staff are doing?

    "Twitter Notes to PowerPoint from The Tablet PC Education Blog by noreply@blogger.com (The Tablet PC In Education Blog) NESI teachers find Dave Johnson's suggested ways to use Twitter improves classroom PowerPoint presentations. They use: 1. The add-on PowerPoint Feedback Slides to insert student feedback clouds with a presentation. They configure it, so they can moderate feeds before they post. 2. The real-time PowerPoint Twitter Ticker Bar at the bottom of the slide to display the last 10 tweets that match the PP slide. 3. The PowerPoint Twitter Voting function to student responses to teacher Qs on a PowerPoint slide. Twitter tallies the results and displays them as a bar or pie chart. 4. The PowerPoint Auto Tweet to push PowerPoint notes out to students via Twitter in real time, as teachers flip to each side. Teachers control what goes out by wrapping tweeted notes in twitter tags. Thanks, Dave, for pointing us to these Twitter functions. Kudos, Teachers for adapting them to classrooms. Johnson, D. Display Tweets in PowerPoint, Send PowerPoint Notes to Twitter. Heiny, R.

Colleges Help Students to Translate the Benefits of Study Abroad - Students - The Chronicle of Higher Education - 0 views

    Clemson University in the US found that students going abroad had a hard time articulating the value of their time overseas to employers, so got them to use multimedia to produce projects which would help them to understand what they had learnt about intercultural exchange. Strikingly similar to the social network project and the module I am proposing in SLLF!

    This seems particularly pertinent given all the recent activity in College around the 'Student Experience'. The lastest version of JISC Inform talks about this and this appears to be the launch of their "Student Experiences of Technology" campaign which is bound to yield something useful.

Carnegie Perspectives: The - 0 views

  • The whole point of the seminar is that ... maybe the students don't get it right, and maybe the students don't know everything about the subject, but it's the fact that the students figured it out on their own that makes it their own, and it makes them able to internalize that subject. ... I learned more in my [seminars] than I did in all my prior learning experience. And I think mostly its because I retained more ... because I was able to take my education into my own hands ... take what I was reading and make it my own.

  • The story of the frustrated student is the subject of a short video produced by students at Manchester Metropolitan University. The university is looking into alternative ways to communicate with students, specifically an SMS service in which messages are sent directly to students’ mobile phones. The system is incredibly simple: staff post a message to the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), and if the message is urgent, the staff member begins the message with the keyword ‘urgent’. The next 160 characters are then sent as an SMS. It’s an opt-in system which students value - not least because they are more likely to receive the messages if they go straight to their mobile device.

    Maybe interesting to see the results of this study, when it comes out. Msot of it makes intuitive sense (but then I am usually suspicious when that happens ...) I quite liked this exercise: "students are asked to trace the spread of a claim from an academic journal to less prestigious forms of media, like magazines and newspapers, in order to see how arguments are diluted. In another, students are asked to pursue the answer to a research question using only blogs, and to create a map showing how they know if certain information is trustworthy or not."

Stanford Study of Writing - Home - 0 views

    This is a very interesting study done by Andrea Lunsford at Stanford which suggests that the rise of social software has had a positive effect on students' writing. Interesting to read some of the things the students valued about their participation in the study - peer feedback, detailed editing-style commentary on their scripts & so on.

Don't let them in to watch them sink | Angela Phillips | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk - 0 views

    Quick commentary piece on working-class students being disadvantaged at universities that made me think of the Transitions project. Also of interest to the Graduate Attributes project: Goldsmiths' mission statement. It offers "a transformative experience, generating knowledge and stimulating self-discovery through creative, radical and intellectually rigorous thinking and practice."
  •  
    Immediately made me think about someone in a College department, which will remain nameless, who proudly proclaims that they fail a large number of students...like it's some kind of badge of honour! This article would appear to hit the nail on the head but unfortunately it's a problem that's doesn't have a "simple" solution like lowering entrance standards or handing out more Oxbridge scholarships.
