How Technology Can Improve Learner-Centered Teaching | Faculty Focus | 21st Century Learning LS | Scoop.it

In many ways, technology can help pave the way for both faculty and students, but only if the instructor “is adept at creating a course that capitalizes on the pedagogical benefits that technology facilitates in helping students meet the desired learning outcomes for the course,”

The Flipped Classroom Model: A Full Picture

The Flipped Classroom Model: A Full Picture | 21st Century Learning LS | Scoop.it

Jackie Gerstein writes a thorough post on The Flipped Classroom with research, links, and visuals. She writes that "the advantage of the flipped classroom is that the content, often the theoretical/lecture-based component of the lesson, becomes more easily accessed and controlled by the learner." Jackie provides good examples on why taking the lecture live can also be a problem.

 

"A major roadblock or barrier to the implementation of this model is that many educators do not know what to do within the classroom, what to do with that “whatever they want to do” time. For educators, who are used to and use the didactic model, a framework is needed to assist them with the implementation of the Flipped Classroom. In other words, the message to teachers to do what they want during classroom is not enough to make this transition.

 

In order to minimize the flavor of the month syndrome (recall character education, phonics movements, multicultural education, Reading First, powerpoints in the classroom), the use of video lectures needs to fall within a larger framework of learning activities – within more establish models of learning, providing a larger context for educator implementation."

 

The visuals walk you through the what, so what and now what. I really appreciate how Jackie presented this information and her summary: 

 

"The Flipped Classroom offers a great use of technology - especially if it gets lecture out of the classrooms and into the hands and control of the learners. As it is being discussed, it is part of a larger picture of teaching and learning. The Flipped Classroom videos have a place in the models and cycles of learning proposed by educational psychologists and instructional designers. Providing educators with a full framework of how the Flipped Classroom can be used in their educational settings will increase its validity for educators and their administrators."

I find this graphic interesting.  My plan is to map out applications according to this chart which 1 (or many) teachers, including me, are actually using.

I think this provides a clear outline of possible uses of ILT.  It will be interesting to see how effective this is.

Social media for teaching, learning, and researching

Social Media for learning, teaching and researching...

 

Social Media should be about making us think and act differently! :-)

 

e.g: in the past we copied copies of our handouts to students, not we upload them to the VLE kind of a thing - there is much more we can do with technology!

The 21st century skills teachers should have

The 21st century skills teachers should have | 21st Century Learning LS | Scoop.it

In one of my previous post entitled what every teacher should know about google. reference was made to the notions of the 21st century learner and how these learners depend wholly on media and social networking to live in this fast_paced world. In today’s post i will present two short videos that will hopefully change what some think about teaching. The following videos are among the top educative videos online .

 

With the advance of technological innovations into our lives , education has been radically transformed and teachers who do not use social media and educational technology in thier teaching no longer fit in the new system.That’s why every educator and teacher should reconsider certain values and principles . watch this first one minute 40 seconds video to see the negative side that every teacher must not have
