10 Things Your Students Should Know About Their Digital Footprints | EdReach | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
Building a digital footprint is an issue I believe doesn’t garner enough attention in our personal and professional lives.
Cheryl Frose's insight:

What does Digital Citizenship mean to you? What should it mean? These are important lessons that students can research on their own. However, wouldn’t it be fantastic to offer some of this education in our schools as well?

So what’s a teacher to do? If you plan lessons that involve students using online programs and apps, you’re likely to hit the campus firewall or possibly even risk compromising your students’ privacy. Yet, if you keep your lessons offline, you know you’re missing a huge opportunity to engage students by using technology in meaningful, real-world ways. Well, never fear, because we’ve got all of the answers you seek. Follow these steps to get your class online and using popular apps, without worrying about keeping student data private.

Christopher Pappas: 9 Tips To Apply Adult Learning Theory to eLearning - eLearning Industry

Christopher Pappas: 9 Tips To Apply Adult Learning Theory to eLearning - eLearning Industry | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
According to the renowned American educator, Malcolm Knowles there are 5 assumptions concerning the characteristics of adult learners, and 4 principles concerning adult learning (andragogy). Despite the fact that Knowles' adult learning theory assumptions and principles were introduced in the 1980's, each can be utilized today to help eLearning professionals create more meaningful learning experiences for adult learners.

Phil Hobrla's curator insight, March 16, 8:09 PM

In order for adult learners to be actively involved in their own learning, they must feel (and know) that they have a voice in regards to the content and delivery of their coursework. The degree to which learners determine how a course will play out is, of course, the prerogative of the instructor, but I think instructors who actively gauge the preparedness and receptivity of their adult learners are liable to get ones who are more engaged and grateful.

Jennifer Kleiner's curator insight, March 16, 8:13 PM

Scooped from Amos's Scoop.it page- Adult learning theory is very important to keep in mind when designing learning strategies for adult education. This is a very helpful resource to easily reference when designing instruction, in particular I would highlight the PURPOSE behind each module and activity and remembering that motivation is key with adult learners.

Samantha Patterson 7's curator insight, March 16, 9:05 PM

This is a good article about adult learning with eLearning. It provides information about Knowles' 5 adult learning theory assumptions that can be translated to modern day eLearning experiences.

donhornsby's curator insight, April 11, 7:57 AM

(From the article): With the power of social media, it’s easy for leaders to shine a light on the movement. Remember the Ice Bucket Challenge? Who started it? No one remembers, but that person is a true leader. Once you have a movement, share it with colleagues, friends, family and with the world. Remember, as Sivers explains, when the movement begins, others will join willingly, because most people will fear being left alone, if they fail to join the crowd. Again, consider the Ice Bucket Challenge. You had to join or risk being left out of one of the most powerful movements to come along in many years.

The Four Important Models of Blended Learning Teachers Should Know about ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

In its basic and simplest definition, blended learning is an instructional methodology, a teaching and learning approach that combines face-to-face classroom methods with computer mediated activities to deliver instruction. The strengths of this instructional approach is its combination of both face to face and online teaching methods into one integrated instructional approach.

Blended Learning is a big concept, an umbrella term, that contains several other sub-methods. Below are the four models that are most used in schools today.The definitions together with the accompanying videos featured here are taken from Blended Learning 101 course. This course is offered by Khan Academy ( one of the leading protagonists of blended learning approach) in partnership with the Clayton Christensen Institute and the Silicon Schools Fund.

Inside the schools that dare to break with traditional teaching

Inside the schools that dare to break with traditional teaching | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
From Quest to Learn in New York to the Liger Learning Center in Cambodia, Matthew Jenkin explores schools that use innovative teaching methods and curriculums

 

On 21 October 2015, we will finally arrive at the point in time that Marty McFly travels to in the 1989 sci-fi sequel, Back to the Future II. But if a teenager today were to drive Doc Brown’s DeLorean back to Hill Valley High, the film hero’s fictional school, would he or she notice any difference?

 

Just as we are still waiting for someone to market hoverboards and self-tying shoelaces, we have yet to see a radical shift in teaching models, despite the ebb and flow of education reforms. There are schools, however, that are breaking the mould and daring to free teachers from the shackles of curriculum dictates. They are giving students and educators the power to become masters of their own learning.
