10 Essential Things I've Learned in 10 years of Writing and Running EmergingEdTech | Em... - 0 views

  • 1. Human relationships are so much more important than the technology
  • 2. Technology alone will never revolutionize education
  • Education is changing (albeit slowly) whether we agree with the changes or not, and you can either learn to change or gradually get pushed aside Change keeps coming. I know that significant changes in education occur at a snail's pace, but that may be a blessing. Yet things do change. For example, Western Governors University has been delivering Competency Based Education for decades. That's a big deal in the world of higher ed. We all know that online learning is more embraced year over year. Flipped Learning continues to spread and be embraced. Change is happening. Don't ignore it. We tell kids that they need to embrace life long learning. So do we. And administrators at all levels need to stay informed and be part of the conversation as we think about and plan for tomorrow.

7 Advantages Digital Assessments Have over Paper Tests and Exams | Emerging Education T... - 0 views

  • In 2014, the Florida Department of Education gave a survey to students after taking end-of-course evaluations. The results showed that more students preferred computer tests over paper (53% of the students agreed to that statement). Another study in 2017 Saudi published in the International Journal of Information and Education Technology presented the opposite result. Here, only 42.5% prefer online over paper exam, which is still a considerable portion of the survey population. But while that may be the case, 77.5% of the total examinees liked the fact that they are able to receive results and feedback automatically after taking the test.
  • Below are 7 reasons to consider when deciding whether to incorporate online methods to your teaching and evaluation, from the perspective of students.
  • 1. Getting test results immediately give students peace of mind

  • 3. Students can take the exam anytime, anywhere
  • 4. Fun and interactive with the use of multimedia, simulations
  • 5. Students can take the exam in a more comfortable environment
  • 6. Avoid commute that adds stress and saves money
  • 7. Technology easily accommodates students with disabilities

Plateforme de formation Netflix Like : déclin programmé ? - 1 views

  • On aura beau faire : historiquement structuré dans une approche top down, un LMS répond difficilement aux attentes des collaborateurs en matière de support “bottom up”
  • quelques données démographiques auxquelles s’ajoutent les ressources pédagogiques consommées ne peuvent pas grand chose si la corrélation ne prend pas en compte les données du collaborateur au travail ou dans son potentiel d’évolution. Par ailleurs, pour revenir à l’enjeu clé de la performance du collaborateur au jour le jour, “il est très improbable qu’un cours en ligne résolve mon problème de performance dans le monde réel de manière opportune”.
  • La “métaphore Netflix de l’apprentissage”, comme il l’appelle, conforte les équipes formation dans l’idée erronée que l’essentiel de leur travail consisterait à créer et diffuser du contenu, alors que les contenus ne sont qu'une contribution parmi d’autres à la façon dont les gens apprennent à travailler
  • ...5 more annotations...
  • La qualité des recommandations dépend du volume des données analysées
  • Ajouter une interface de type Netflix au LMS, avec la question “Qu’est-ce que je vais pouvoir apprendre aujourd’hui ?” n’y changera pas grand chose.
  • Netflix est programmé pour créer une addiction, à l’instar de YouTube. On commence, on ne s’arrête plus : cuite (binging) programmée.
  • “C'est le contraire de ce que nous devrions essayer de faire en matière d'apprentissage en milieu de travail” répond JD Dillion, les équipes formation doivent au contraire concevoir des solutions qui consommeront le moins de temps possible, car les gens ne vont pas au travail pour apprendre, mais pour faire leur travail !” 
  • La question du support à la performance est clé, elle ne saurait se résoudre pour la formation à produire et diffuser massivement des contenus. C’est une combinaison pertinente d’outils, de bonnes pratiques, d’entraînement, de contenus… contextualisée au travail tel qu’il est, que les équipes formation doivent offrir, avec pourquoi pas des recommandations fondées sur les données. Ce n’est pas Netflix.

Entreprise apprenante : comment permettre à notre cerveau de mieux apprendre ... - 0 views

  • Face à une vidéo ou un Mooc qui sait capter notre attention, on peut parfois avoir le sentiment de tout comprendre, et de tout retenir. Or notre cerveau n’apprend pas lorsque nous recevons passivement les informations. Il est nécessaire de s'engager dans l'apprentissage, car activer sa mémoire à long-terme permet que l’information y soit stockée.

Why do German students choose to study in the UK? | Times Higher Education (THE) - 1 views

  • Freed of exorbitant university fees, German students enjoy higher education of a comparably high standard that usually does not see them graduate with a huge pile of debt that then has to be paid off.  Still, a large number of German students decide to leave the “land of poets and thinkers” to pursue degrees at universities in the UK. Despite the costs and the tough application process, about 7,500 Germans head to the UK every year to take up their studies at universities in Oxford, London or Edinburgh, among other destinations.
  • The crucial factors are tuition quality and the staff-to-student ratio, which many Germans who have spent time studying in the UK say is excellent. With an average ratio of 1:66, German universities have a hard time standing their ground in this regard against rivals in the UK.  For comparison, Bishop Grosseteste University in England, considered one of the “worst” universities with respect to its staff per student number, has an average ratio of 1:25,
  • “In the UK, staff and students usually interact on a more equal and respectful level than in Germany, and in my experience UK professors are a lot more approachable than their German colleagues.”

Quelles sont les 9 tendances RH incontournables en 2019 ? - 0 views

  • La première tendance relevée n’est pas nouvelle, mais tend à s’accélérer : il s’agit du nomadisme en entreprise
  • D’après une étude Malakoff Médéric publié en février 2019, 29 % des salariés ont adopté le télétravail contre 25 % en 2017. Pour plus d’un dirigeant sur deux, ce mode d’organisation est perçu comme un moyen efficace de : « favoriser la conciliation entre vie personnelle et vie professionnelle des salariés » (56 %) fidéliser les collaborateurs en répondant à l’une de leurs attentes (45 %)
  • Ce que montre également cette infographie, c’est l’importance de la formation en 2019. Les nouvelles recrues pourraient être mieux onboardées grâce à la réalité virtuelle et augmentée.

Are institutional analytics more important than learning analytics? - eCampus News - 0 views

  • Fifty-eight percent of surveyed leaders say institutional analytics that improve operational efficiency are of greater priority than learning analytics that will improve student outcomes, according to What Will It Take to Build an Analytics-Driven Campus? Analytics priorities seem to differ by role, with presidents, CFOs, and CIOs focusing on improved learning outcomes; provosts are focused on improved retention and completion; and CTOs are concerned with improved operational efficiency.

The future of college education: Students for life, computer advisers and campuses ever... - 0 views

  • “We are living in an incredible age for learning, when there’s so much knowledge available, that one would think that this is good news for higher education,” Bryan Alexander told me recently. Alexander writes often about the future of higher education and is finishing a book on the subject for Johns Hopkins University Press. “Yet we’ve seen enrollment in higher education drop for six consecutive years.”
  • In 2015, Georgia Tech formed a commission on the future of higher education, and its 48 members were asked to imagine what a public research institution might look like in 2040.
  • The primary recommendation of the Georgia Tech report is that the university turn itself into a venue for lifelong learning that allows students to “associate rather than enroll.” Such a system would provide easy entry and exit points into the university and imagines a future in which students take courses either online or face-to-face
  • ...2 more annotations...
  • The commission outlines a scenario in which artificial intelligence and virtual tutors help advise students about selecting courses, navigating difficult classes and finding the best career options.
  • A distributed presence around the world. Colleges and universities operate campuses and require students to come to them. In the past couple of decades, online education has grown substantially, but for the most part, higher education is still about face-to-face interactions. Georgia Tech imagines a future in which the two worlds are blended in what it calls the “atrium” — essentially storefronts that share space with entrepreneurs and become gathering places for students and alumni. In these spaces, visiting faculty might conduct master classes, online students could gather to complete project work or alumni might work on an invention.

Donald Clark Plan B: What is 'adaptive' learning? - 0 views

  • The problem is that the word has been applied to many things from simple pre-test assessment to full-blown algorithmic and machine learning adaption, and lots in-between. 
  • In essence it means adapting the online experience to the individual’s needs as they learn, in the way a personal tutor would adapt. The aim is to provide, what many teachers provide, a learning experience that is tailored to the needs of you as an individual learner. 
  • Online learning has to date mostly delivered fairly linear and non-adaptive experiences, whether it’s through self-paced structured learning, scenario-based learning, simulations or informal learning. But we are now in the position of having technology, especially AI, that can deliver what Bloom called ‘one-to-one learning’.

New Global Survey Offers Snapshot of Technology in the Classroom in 2019 | EdTech Magazine - 0 views

  • Technology’s impact on education continues for students outside of the classroom as well. The survey found that 64 percent of students use a smartphone to do their homework, and 65 percent do their homework on a notebook computer (that number rises to 85 percent in the U.S.). 
  • The report ultimately finds both teachers and students rely on technology to add value to and enhance education. The expectation is that, in the future, students will develop greater autonomy in the learning process, selecting the technology that works best for them. Smartphones, laptops and desktops will clearly be part of that mix — alongside pen and paper.
