Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Top 11 Educational Video Websites for Teachers

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Top 11 Educational Video Websites for Teachers | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The use of multimedia in the classroom is a great way of getting students engaged. One of the biggest challenges we all face today is how to hold students attention for a longer time. It seems like multitasking has taken every bit of attention from our students. No wonder,  the visual stimulus they are exposed to is huge : Tv, video gaming, social networking, texting, emailing,are but the emerging tip of the iceber and unless we seriously address this phenomenon  it will definitely grow out of control.

Education Department awards $75 million in innovation grants to colleges @insidehighered

The Obama administration announcedTuesday that it will award a total of $75 million to 24 colleges to support innovations in higher education.


The Education Department chose the winners of the grant competition from a pool of nearly 500 applicants, officials said. The grants are going to 19 public and private four-year institutions and five community colleges. No for-profit institutions were eligible for the award.


Congress set aside $20 million of the $75 million for minority-serving institutions, and the Education Department awarded those funds to six institutions, including one historically black university.

That institution, Hampton University in Virginia, will use its grant to redesign some of its courses to better incorporate new digital learning tools. Those efforts will yield cost savings for students because they won’t have to purchase traditional textbooks but will rather use online resources, said William R. Harvey, the university’s president.

Special edition on research on MOOCs in the journal ‘Distance Education’ | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Tony Bates:

 

"The August 2014 edition of the Australian-based journal, Distance Education (Vol.35, No. 2.), is devoted to new research on MOOCs. There is a guest editor, Kemi Jona, from Northwestern University, Illinois, as well as the regular editor, Som Naidu.
The six articles in this edition are fascinating, both in terms of their content, but even more so in their diversity. There are also three commentaries, by Jon Baggaley, Gerhard Fischer and myself."
