Allan's Blog - The Pedagogy Wheel | About learning and more | Scoop.it

I have added 62 iPad apps to the wheel and put them where they could serve the pedagogy. These are not necessarily the best app for the job and many of the apps can be used in different realms but it is a good start. I hope it helps you rethink the iPad’s use in Learning and Teaching… it is not about the tool nor the app … it’s all about the students.

Thanks Jeff. BTW you might also be interested in the podcast episode I did with Prof Geoff Scott of the Uni of Western Sydney. He has done years of research into graduate capabilities (aka values or attributes) It is fascinating stuff in the context of Technology Enhanced Learning and Teaching. This is what the respective industries in the market place want in graduates. Duh! Look at the list and ask yourself are they being developed instudents from HE or in education in general ... this is why mapping is so important. Are we equipping graduates to excel and make a difference .... hmmm! Have a look and listen to http://tinyurl.com/alsltblog. "If you exercise these capabilities ... you will be employed!" This sort of stuff makes the CAMERA method worth developing don't you think? regards Allan

Higher Ed Disruption: Not So New October 8, 2012 - 3:00am By Alexandra W. Logue 

Are you a faculty member or administrator who thinks that the latest technologies are finally going to enable us to teach our students well, or do you at least hope that’s the case? If so, you should reconsider, because the vaunted elements of the latest technologies have been around for some 100 years. It isn’t having the technology, but using the technology that is key to helping students learn well.

megriley's comment, February 17, 2014 10:32 AM
Technology is becoming more prominent in classrooms today, it is easily accessible and is believed to help students learn in new ways. The problem is that technology may not be being used in positive ways in the classroom, students may not be receiving all the benefits technology has to offer. In order to make the most out of the laptops, iPads, and iPhones available its important that they're used properly.
megriley's comment, February 18, 2014 10:10 AM
To use technology properly it's suggested that students have a guide such as a teacher to show them extra resources or to be there to further explain a topic. Students shouldn't use the internet to make online flash cards to do anything that can be done on paper, it's only a waste of time. The internet provides students with a whole variety of sources, doing things that would be done in a normal classroom is not taking full advantage of technology. Teachers should not use computers or iPads in class everyday to pass time, as busy work, students will become accustomed to the available technology and become lazy with it. Students need to want to take advantage of technology when it is available to them. Technology should be used to enhance normal classroom activities, branch off from the norm to provide students with a variety of unique ways to really learn and absorb the information they're learning. Computers and iPads can access online supplemental information for the classroom such as online textbooks, YouTube videos explaining the concept, other teachers notes and materials, as well as the ability to chat with other students in other parts of the country or world to discuss material. The ability to share sources and connect with others around the world may be the most beneficial aspect of technology in the classroom and it's important that students take advantage of it.

“In this report, we explore the trends in pay and look at how full- and part-time employment status, country, regional areas, gender, industry, company size, number of people managed, years of eLearning experience, years of education, and job focus influence salary calculations. It’s critical to note that there are many more variables than these that impact salaries, and that these factors don’t necessarily cause salaries to change.”

Heather, to teach at the community college level you need a masters degree in the subject you will teach. Not many library science majors in CC are there? The next step is to get 18 units in a field that is in demand. Many of our certificate holders were in your position. They completed the E-Learing Certificate (which earned them 15 units) and then added classes in mobile learning, game based learning, or social networking to round out their subject area expertise. This kind of training helps establish you as a faculty trainer in e-learning and online ed. This IS a growth area at community colleges and universities.

Heather Lane's comment, February 27, 2013 9:47 PM
Thanks for your suggestion, Dennis. I wasn't considering library science as a teaching subject. I am trying to decide if it is worthwhile to invest in an 18-credit-hour program in U.S. history or European history, as I said in my comment. But perhaps there are more positions to serve as a faculty trainer in e-learning and online ed. I am enjoying two classes this semester: "Integrating technology into models of teaching" and "Integrating Web 2.0 technologies in classroom learning."

Check out if You Correctly Integrate Technology Using This Awesome Rubric ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | About learning and more | Scoop.it

One of the questions you might be asking yourself as a teacher using technology in his/her classroom is whether you are using it the right way or not. First , questions such as these are healthy signs of your ongoing learning and the more you question  your learning and teaching practices  the more improved your overall teaching becomes. This is an important part of our lifelong learning process , and as I said before in one of my previous posts, teachers are or should be on a constant hunt for new knowledge. We are not seeking perfection because nothing is perfect in this world but we do want to have a sound intellectual mind . - See more at: http://www.educatorstechnology.com/2012/12/a-must-have-rubric-to-correctly.html#sthash.70QGES7z.dpuf

Key TakeawaysOpen educational resources made a dramatic appearance with the 2002 debut of MIT's Open Courseware initiative.In the roughly 10 years since, OERs have not noticeably disrupted the traditional business model of higher education or affected daily teaching approaches at most institutions.Four major hurdles seem the likeliest hindrances to adoption of OERs: discoverability, quality control, bridging the last mile, and acquisition.OERs could unify and advance the essentially disconnected developments in digital textbooks and MOOCs by establishing a global enterprise learning content management system.

Thanks to Terese Bird for bringing this to my attention via the OER13 Scoop.it. Consider following it and the conference in general (www.oer13.org).

 

It (somewhat but sadly perhaps does not really) amazes me that people can/could expect HE to change rapidly in response to any new idea. One of the bullets from this Educause reports points out:

In the roughly 10 years since, OERs have not noticeably disrupted the traditional business model of higher education or affected daily teaching approaches at most institutions.

Hm. Perhaps we need to look for evidence of change in different places? Should we expect TRADITIONAL business models to change? How about the interest in engaging in emergent business models (see FutureLearn and others) alongside, perhaps experimental but certainly now taken seriously. What do we expect of DAILY teaching approaches at MOST institutions? This is still offline at most institutions. But there ... waiting in the wings ... nudging into things ... yes, its OER/open content.

 

The question is whether if you were creating a new institution today whether you would implement teaching practices or adopt a business model which ignores the open agenda. Can't see it happening myself in US, UK and rest of Europe, Australia. Africia, South America, Indonesia ... well anywhere.

Convergence Training | Blog: Tips for Writing Instructional and Training Material

Writing’s not easy. To put that another way, and use the words of Ernest Hemingway, “Easy writing makes hard reading.”

As a writer, you want to do the difficult work so your reader doesn't have to. And if it's true that all types of writing are difficult, it's also true that each type of writing presents its own challenges. That's definitely the case when it comes to writing instructional or training materials. So, we've created a list of tips and resources for you.
