Exploration of ePortfolios for Adding Value and Deepening Student Learning in Contemporary Higher Education

While much has been written about the use of learning technologies generally and about ePortfolios in particular, there has been a lack of robust evidence about their added value for enhancing student learning opportunities. A case study of the integration of ePortfolios into a professional development master’s program in a Higher Education Institution in Ireland is presented, and added value in terms of the creative learning process is explored.

Are you supporting new fashioned learning in the workplace?

The world is changing, and more and more information is being created and disseminated on a daily basis. New domains of knowledge are appearing which have to be structured and organized. New ideas are being added to old domains. We experience this constant flow of new information in our personal social media channels every day, and many people are already developing new skills to help them make sense of all this new information. This is the essence of “new fashioned” learning.

Flipping the Classroom: A revolutionary approach to learning presents some pros and cons

Flipping the Classroom: A revolutionary approach to learning presents some pros and cons | Silvana Richardson | Scoop.it

Sure, some kids will ignore the video. “The same kids who don’t currently do their homework will not watch the lecture,” says McCammon. “But as you start making your class more engaging, kids who don’t usually do their homework will start doing it because they want to participate in the class.” Kids write questions down while they’re watching the video, and then the first 10 minutes of class is for discussion of what they’ve seen. Then kids spend the remaining 50 minutes working in teams of four to solve problems.

A good in-depth article about flipping the classroom.

Rebecca Ferlazzo's curator insight, May 12, 2013 5:38 AM

Jusst like some of my earlier scoops this model "flips" the classroom. But this classroom is "flipped" with a twist. Technology is integrated at every step. So does this still make the "flipped classroom" a good model? Or does the integration of technology take away from the experience? Technology- Help or Hinderance?
