Badges and Learning - LearningTimes - 0 views

  •  
    Where, how and when we learn is changing dramatically, and how we get recognized for what we learn is now changing, too. Our BadgeStack™ system is at the forefront of this movement. We're working with associations, conference planners, museums, schools, and companies to advance this learning revolution.

Critical Technology: Badge Clustering - 0 views

  •  
    As my digital badges seminar series came to an end I was doing a lot of thinking about badge clustering and what I meant by the term. With a little creative thinking, and some fun, I borrowed and edited three clustering terms and applied them to badges.

Donald Clark Plan B: Jay Cross: informal learning guru - 0 views

  • Informal learning is driven by conversations, communities of practice, context, reinforcement through practice and now social media to “optimise organisational performance”. Blogs, wikis, podcasts, peer-to-peer sharing, aggregators, social media and personal knowledge management are all emergent phenomena, unlike the top-down tools and content that traditional e-learning has provided.
  • There’s still a need for underpinning learning with good content, from books to full courses, especially for novices and business critical training such as compliance. You can’t let people who don’t know what they need to know, drift, so there’s a time and place for structured, formal learning.
  • Even ‘e-learning’ is avoided as it also leads to a default of dull, page-turning courses.

  • Cross asks us to reflect on the obvious, but shocking, fact that almost all of our attention (and spend) goes on the formal side, while the majority of the action is informal. Much to his credit he does not abandon formal learning, but asks us to consider the accelerating role of technology in on informal learning. He moves us beyond traditional LMS and content model and beyond blended learning to a newer more naturalistic model of learning, based on real behaviour and contemporary technology.

    Clark introduces Cross, who in turn distinguishes pushed learning from pulled learning. Clark also provides a short bibliography of Cross's work.

Critical Technology: implementing a really simple badge system - 0 views

  •  
    I aspired to create a really simple badge system design so a beginner could implement open badges. I had the following restraints to this implementation;
    creating the badge images needed to be really simple, and saved as .png files.
    the badge system design was to be a basic hierarchy where three micro-badges lead to a badge.
    the tasks to earn each badge were to be simple.
    the badges needed to be hosted and issued from one of the free services currentlly available.
    the badges had to easily move over to the Mozilla digital backpack for organization and display.

Revisiting the Community of Inquiry Framework: July 9-22, 2012 - 1 views

    Revisiting the Community of Inquiry Framework: July 9-22, 2012

    Facilitators:  Cindy Xin and  Sarah Haavind

    Since its original publication, Garrison, Anderson and Archer's (2000) "Critical Inquiry in A Text-based Environment: Computer Conferencing in Higher Education" has inspired a great many researchers and advanced our understanding of online learning and online education. In recent years, a number of reviews of the Community of Inquiry framework (CoI) have been published, including, Garrison and Arbaugh's (2007), Swan and Ice (2010). Cindy Xin, author of a recently-published critique (Xin, 2012) will be with us to explain her argument and, together with Sarah Haavind, facilitate a discussion reconsidering the CoI and its recent reviews and critiques. By provoking new thoughts and possibly constructing new theories and methods, we hope to further our understanding of online discussion in particular, and online education in general.

    The power of an inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning is its potential to increase intellectual engagement and foster deep understanding through the development of a hands-on, minds-on and 'research-based disposition' towards teaching and learning.

Pedagogical roles for video in online learning - 2 views

  •  
    "Video is not being used enough in online learning in post-secondary education. When used it is often an afterthought or an 'extra', rather than an integral part of the design, or is used merely to replicate a classroom lecture, rather than exploiting the unique characteristics of video."

A Definition of Collaborative vs Cooperative Learning - 0 views

    Representation of a discussion paper by Ted Panitz (1996) distinguishing collaborative from cooperative learning, in which he argues: "Collaboration is a philosophy of interaction and personal lifestyle whereas cooperation is a structure of interaction designed to facilitate the accomplishment of an end product or goal" (para. 2).
