Hi students (and visitors). If you are having trouble with your profile photo changing every time that you post a new scoop, you can fix it by following these directions that a representative from Scoop.it sent me:
Indeed there's a setting to avoid that. Tell your students that on their Curate page, click on Manage>Customizations>untick "Last Post Image" box and click on Save.

Flipped Classroom: Beyond the Videos | Catlin Tucker, Honors English Teacher | 21 century education | Scoop.it

As a blended learning enthusiast, I have played with the flipped classroom model, seen presentations by inspiring educators who flip their classrooms, and even have a chapter dedicated to this topic in my book. However, I am disheartened to hear so many people describe the flipped classroom as a model where teachers must record videos or podcasts for students to view at home.

Ghost in the Wire: The Education Crisis - Flip the Media

Ghost in the Wire: The Education Crisis - Flip the Media | 21 century education | Scoop.it

"The logic of the commercial is pretty clear, played out through narration and visual imagery that shows the modern student, who can’t be struck in their classroom prisons. They want to learn in the subway, and on rooftops, while feeding their kids – you know, places where they can really concentrate. This is supposed to be much better than that dinosaur of a higher education system that remains mired in “old traditions” and “old ideas,” a characterization that makes it sound like the Universities of the world are still putting a heel of bread out for the Fae to ensure good fortune."

aconventional: E-learning is dead. Long live online learning. | 21 century education | Scoop.it

So what comes after the course? The resource. I have been talking about the shift from courses to resources for some time, and it might seem that the point is merely a semantic one: 'courses/resources, whatever - we still do online learning'. But what has struck me in recent months is just how different the two ambitions are.

cathellis13: Ten Commandments of eLearning

cathellis13: Ten Commandments of eLearning | 21 century education | Scoop.it

"Frequently when I talk to colleagues about eLearning they say something like 'I set up a bulletin board/blog/wiki etc but the students didn't use it'. My response to them is always the same: that the problem is more likely to be with their design rather than with their students. Over the years I've learned a lot of things about what good design really means and I've grouped them all together into a Ten Commandents of eLearning. This is not intended to be blasphemous or disrespectful but rather is inspired by the Christian commandments in that all they're doing is presenting a set of basic principles to work to. Like the original ten commandments, with these the first is the most important. I hope you find them useful."  Cath Ellis blog.

"This was one more example that illustrated the findings of a report by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which indicated the younger generation's knowledge of even the most recent history of the struggle for freedom and justice in this country -- the Civil Rights Movement -- is practically non-existent. Not being taught in the classrooms of America are the once unthinkable steps young people like themselves took to change that and to give the lie to "separate but equal" and the often treacherous paths they walked and the journeys they took to secure the equal rights the long since amended U.S. Constitution guaranteed to all citizens, regardless of race, creed or color."

Curate Custom Video Learning Courses with Course Hero

Curate Custom Video Learning Courses with Course Hero | 21 century education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Course Hero is a platform which allows the creation and delivery of online video courses curated from the best existing published content on that topic.

 

There are already ready-made courses to access or you can submit a topic that you would like to video-curate into a course.

 

"You can learn just about anything from YouTube...if you're willing to dig through millions of videos."

 

 

From Techcrunch: "Luckily, Course Hero has done the work for you, offering coherent classes by hosting collections of the best educational YouTube videos and other content.


The newly launched courses section of the eduTech startup’s site now has classes in entrepreneurship, business plan development, and programming in a variety of languages.

...

By drawing from YouTube and other openly available education, Course Hero plans to set up courses for anything it, or you, can think of.

...

Each course breaks down into roughly 6 chapters of 6 concept YouTube videos, Justin.tv videos, articles, and more. Unlike Udemy‘s one-teacher-per-class approach, Course Hero courses are compiled from content by many teachers.


Rather than put you at the mercy of long-winded professors, Course Hero trims videos and articles down to their most important teachings.

 

Along the way you’ll answer quiz questions, take tests to complete chapters, and face a final exam to finish a course and earn proficiency badges..."
