How Children Learn: Portraits of Classrooms Around the World

How Children Learn: Portraits of Classrooms Around the World | About learning and more | Scoop.it

Since 2004, Julian Germain has been capturing the inner lives of schools around the world, from England to Nigeria to Qatar, in his large-scale photographs of schoolchildren in class. Classroom Portraits (public library) is part Where Children Sleep, part Bureaucratics, part What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets, part something else entirely — a poignant lens on a system-phenomenon that is both global in reach and strikingly local in degree of peculiarity, revealed through more than 450 portraits of schoolchildren from 20 countries.

Five Characteristics of Learner-Centered Teaching | Faculty Focus

Five Characteristics of Learner-Centered Teaching | Faculty Focus | About learning and more | Scoop.it

The learner-centered label now gets attached to teaching strategies, teachers, classes, programs, departments and institutions. Like many trendy descriptors in higher education, with widespread use comes a certain definitional looseness. Active learning, student engagement and other strategies that involve students and mention learning are called learner-centered. And although learner-centered teaching and efforts to involve students have a kind of bread and butter relationship, they are not the same thing. In the interest of more definitional precision, I’d like to propose five characteristics of teaching that make it learner-centered.

Educators are coaches, personal trainers in intellectual fitness. The value we add to the media extravaganza is like the value the trainer adds to the gym or the coach adds to the equipment. We provide individualized instruction in how to evaluate and make use of information and ideas, teaching people how to think for themselves.

Blended Learning Course Design Mistakes to Avoid | Faculty Focus

Blended Learning Course Design Mistakes to Avoid | Faculty Focus | About learning and more | Scoop.it

Blended learning course design entails more than simply converting content for online delivery or finding ways to supplement an existing face-to-face course. Ideally, designing a blended course would begin with identifying learning outcomes and topics, creating assignments and activities, determining how interaction will occur, and selecting the technologies to best achieve those learning outcomes. However, a variety of constraints often affect the way blended courses are developed, which can compromise their quality.

Innovative learning | Taxonomies of Learning Technologies

Innovative learning | Taxonomies of Learning Technologies | About learning and more | Scoop.it

Grouping learning technologies into categories is a useful way to make sense out of the many tools available. This page suggests several taxonomies for categorizing learning technologies. In just about any taxonomy for instructional technology, tools may likely show up under multiple categories depending on how they are used. For example, a tool such as an iPhone can be used to view static learning content or can be used to collaborate with other learners.

Eric Mazur on new interactive teaching techniques | Harvard Magazine Mar-Apr 2012 | About learning and more | Scoop.it

In 1990, after seven years of teaching at Harvard, Eric Mazur, now Balkanski professor of physics and applied physics, was delivering clear, polished lectures and demonstrations and getting high student evaluations for his introductory Physics 11 course, populated mainly by premed and engineering students who were successfully solving complicated problems. Then he discovered that his success as a teacher “was a complete illusion, a house of cards.”

Technology Has Its Place: Behind a Caring Teacher - Commentary - The Chronicle of Higher Education | About learning and more | Scoop.it

Of course, technology will play a prominent role in the continuing evolution of the academy, but it will not provide the comprehensive solution that many expect. This is so not because faculty members oppose technology—indeed, many embrace it with enthusiasm. But there is resistance for good reason. Many faculty, even those who embrace it, understand its limitations. Some things technology does with astonishing success. Some things it does poorly. Astute educators recognize the difference.

What Did We Learn about PowerPoint and Student Learning? | Faculty Focus

What Did We Learn about PowerPoint and Student Learning? | Faculty Focus | About learning and more | Scoop.it

The recent post on PowerPoint use generated a healthy response. That’s encouraging, but blog exchanges can seem like conversations without conclusions. There is no summary, no distillation, and no set of next questions. And when there are many comments, I worry that those who respond first don’t return to read what follows and those who check in later don’t have time to read all the comments. So for my benefit and yours (hopefully), here’s how I would summarize our exchange on using PowerPoint.
