Writing Multiple-Choice Questions for Higher-level Thinking by Mike Dickinson : Learning Solutions Magazine

Writing Multiple-Choice Questions for Higher-level Thinking by Mike Dickinson : Learning Solutions Magazine | About learning and more | Scoop.it

We eLearning developers are used to the question, “Which is better, eLearning or classroom instruction?” The answer is, “It depends.” It’s the same answer if one asks, “Which are better, multiple-choice or essay questions?” Either question type is useful for assessing a variety of levels of thinking, depending on how well the designer crafts the questions. Designing multiple-choice questions is not as daunting a task as one might think.

The Future of E-Learning

The Future of E-Learning | About learning and more | Scoop.it

E-Learning is in a state of flux.  The early days saw distance learning programs move online and essentially the same boring ‘learn at a distance’ method occur, but in a more paperless manner.  I have never really been a fan of e-learning in its course delivery model.

La deriva hacia la frustración de profesor y alumno queda en evidencia.

 

Y las ya sabidas consecuencias  son:

 

Agresividad, Regresión y comportamiento infantil.

Tristeza y depresión. Introversión.

Eliminación arbitraria de objetos deseables.

Se Impide a los individuos que completen un trabajo.

Se Induce en los sujetos sentimientos de fracaso y la desconfianza hacia sus propias capacidades.

Refreno desde el exterior a la expresión de los impulsos del individuo y la afirmación de su propia personalidad.

Se Fomenta las discrepancias entre los deseos y las posibilidades de satisfacerlos. Se Implanta un liderazgo insatisfactorio.

Online learning in the workplace: a hybrid model of participation in networked, professional learning | eLearning

Online learning in the workplace: a hybrid model of participation in networked, professional learning | eLearning | About learning and more | Scoop.it

This article by Mary Thorpe and Jean Gordon was published on the Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 28(8).

The design and conceptualisation of online learning environments for work-related, professional learning was addressed through research with users of an online environment for social workers. The core questions for the research were to identify the nature of participation in the online environment, the relationship between online participation and the offline context, and the implications for conceptualisation of online learning environments to support work-related learning. Key areas of the research literature in technology-enhanced and work related learning are discussed in order to position the study, to inform the research methods used and interpretation of the findings. Online participation needs to be understood as a hybrid concept, in that it is a reflection of offline roles, opportunities and pressures, as well as the usefulness, usability and relevance of what is online. Online participation was diverse, from short browsing for information to more reflective engagement that supported movement across the boundaries between roles and areas of work practice and a focus on practice skills and underlying values. Online sites intended to support work-related learning should start from the perspective of the socio-technical interaction network, with its emphasis on building in the social context at all stages in the life of a site.

Use and Reuse of OER: professional conversations with language teachers | eLearning

Use and Reuse of OER: professional conversations with language teachers | eLearning | About learning and more | Scoop.it

This article by Tita Beaven was originally published on the Journal of e-Learning and Knowledge Society, volume 9, issue 1.

In the last ten years prestigious Open Education Resources projects have been set up, often with generous support from funders. Funders and institutions that support OER want evidence of their use and reuse; it seems, however, that OER have not yet been widely adopted by teachers as part of their daily practice.

This paper investigates the use and reuse of OER from a subject-specific repository for language teachers. In particular, the small scale study investigates how and why language teachers use OER in their teaching and rework existing resources. It also examines whether the teachers understand the resources and how to use and adapt them effectively, as an inability to do so has been considered an impediment to their reuse.

Los 36 principios del aprendizaje

Los 36 principios del aprendizaje | About learning and more | Scoop.it

La gamificación (si vale el término y que en español se podría traducir como la juguetización) es el uso de la dinámica de la jugabilidad, es decir, del conjunto de propiedades que describen la experiencia de jugar llevada a otros determinados contextos que son (en apariencia) ajenos a los juegos propiamente dichos y que tienen la finalidad de que las personas adopten o den lugar a determinados comportamientos. Al aprovecharse la predisposición psicológica de los seres humanos a participar en juegos, la gamificación sirve para hacer el ámbito de aplicación, sea el que sea, mucho más atractivo, placentero, participativo y comprometido. La dinámica de jugar da lugar a una variopinta gama de posibilidades y sensaciones de satisfacción, generan un aprendizaje adaptativo, son muy efectivos pues concitan la debida atención debido a la inmersión cognitiva, motivación y emoción que producen y (por supuesto) pueden favorecer la socialización.

How Interactive are YOUR Distance Courses

Like many other programs which offer courses via distance technologies, the State University of West Georgia’s teacher education program has found that one factor that plays a primary role in determining course quality is students’ perceptions of the degree of interaction. The research literature supports this observation (Fulford & Zhang, 1993; Klesius, Homan, & Thompson, 1997; Zhang & Fulford, 1994; Smith, 1996; Zirkin & Sumler, 1995). In fact, in their annotated bibliography on this topic, Zirkin and Sumler found that interaction seemed to have an impact on student achievement, as well as satisfaction: "The weight of evidence from the research reviewed was that increased student involvement by immediate interaction resulted in increased learning as reflected by test performance, grades, and student satisfaction" (p. 101).

However, we also note great variation in what faculty and students view as "interactive qualities." In order to clarify the role of this important factor and encourage faculty to make their distance courses more interactive, the authors have designed a rubric for faculty to use to determine the degree of interactivity in their own distance learning courses. This rubric is based on information obtained from a review and analysis of a considerable body of literature and research on this topic.

The Journal of Asynchronous Learning Networks (JALN) | The Sloan Consortium | About learning and more | Scoop.it

The aim of the Journal of Asynchronous Learning Networks is to describe original work in asynchronous learning networks (ALN), including experimental results. Our mission is to provide practitioners in online education with knowledge about the very best research in online learning. Papers emphasizing results, backed by data are the norm. Occasionally, papers reviewing broad areas are published, including critical reviews of thematic areas. Papers useful to administrators are welcome. JALN is published 4 times a year, and entire issues are published from time-to-time around a single topic or disciplinary areas. Calls for papers for special issues include specific due dates, but general submissions are accepted year-round. . The Journal adheres to traditional standards of double-blind peer review, and authors are encouraged to provide quantitative data; currently JALN's acceptance rate is 25%. The original objective of the Journal was to establish ALN as a field by publishing articles from authoritative and reliable sources. The Journal is now a major resource for knowledge about online learning.

The Journal is guided by its editors and advisory panels. If you are interested in contributing to JALN as an author or reviewer, please see JALN guidelines and information for authors, reivewers and researchers.

 Washington D.C. (US), December 2012 - (by Prem Lata Gupta) Learning Analytics is a growing trend, particularly at American universities. This is supported by the results of the 2012 Educause study "Analytics in Higher Education." Jacqueline Bichsel, EDUCAUSE Senior Research Analyst and principal author of the report, explains that the advantages benefit the university and students alike. She also contends that Learning Analytics means a cultural change at the decision-making level, away from intuition-based approaches toward decisions based on data.

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map | About learning and more | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.

 

Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists. 

 

But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.

 

The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.

 

On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).

"Today I’m proud to share the newly relaunched Design Thinking for Educators toolkit. This toolkit supports teachers in using design thinking tools to become agents of change in their classrooms, schools, and communities by designing more effective curriculum, spaces, tools, and systems. Created in partnership with educators, the toolkit includes real-world classroom experiences and an accompanying workbook to help teachers determine which challenges to address.
