We are a system, you cannot I-solate yourself, so surf and co-create the wave of our collective grace

We are a system, you cannot I-solate yourself, so surf and co-create the wave of our collective grace | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
This could be one of the fundamentals of this blog: it takes two to tango and we are all part of a (same) system. The ‘I’ has a much lesser role to play to in our WElcoming world than we perhaps like to admit.

According to Eric Weiner’s study about the geography of bliss, happiness in Thailand is not a concept framed around unique individuals but around entire families, lineages. The goal, to be happy is not so much to be the most successful person on earth, but to make sure you add your (stepping) stone to make your whole family’s saga richer and better.

BYOD vs. 1:1 Debate creates opportunities for the device-agnostic designer

BYOD vs. 1:1 Debate creates opportunities for the device-agnostic designer | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Technology is increasingly being integrated in schools, and a hotly debated technical decision is to follow a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) or a 1:1 (schools provide access to standardized devices to each student) strategy. But this same debate has been playing out in the workplace for decades.

Two rooms illustrationCorporate mobile devices of twenty plus years ago were notebooks and pagers. Now employees use laptops, Smartphones, tablets, MP3 players, game consoles, among others, for workplace activities. Initially, employers generally supplied these devices following a 1:1 strategy, meaning the devices were chosen, subsidized, and owned by the employer. The BYOD strategy, however, is starting to come into play in the workplace more frequently—either intentionally or because employers cannot stop people from bringing their personal devices to work and connecting them to work devices.

Macro Photography: Photographing Patterns in Nature | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
The natural world is a wonderful source of inspiration for close up or macro photography that makes use of patterns. Some of these photos can even become quite abstract. Once you train your eye to start to look for patterns in nature, you’ll soon find that you’re noticing them everywhere! One of the best things about this kind of photography is that no special equipment is needed. A basic compact camera will usually have a good close-focusing ability, making it...

The corridor of uncertainty: Glocal MOOCs

The corridor of uncertainty: Glocal MOOCs | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. Similarly we can offer MOOC students discussion forums but we can't make them discuss. The topic of learner engagement in online courses (not just MOOCs) has been a recurring theme over the last twenty years and it's clear that meaningful discussions don't just happen, they need to be nurtured and managed. Simply providing a space to comment leads to either complete silence or streams of unconnected random comments ranging from supportive to abusive and distasteful.


What we're all searching for is a way to combine scale with intimacy. Can we design glocal MOOCs combining the advantages of education at scale with a sense of community and small group discussion? What sort of scaffolding and forum management can be provided without significant expense. Could local actors like further education colleges and libraries be involved in creating a local context to global courses? I'm sure it's possible but it will require opening up the MOOC concept outside the confines of the host university or consortium. Universities can't provide all the support themselves so why not open up the concept and allow others to contribute? MOOCs need an open API so that other actors can build support services, offer local variations, translate content and so on. Then maybe we can see open education really taking off.

Moodle plugins: Question Creation Activity

Moodle plugins: Question Creation Activity | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The Question Creation Activity is a graded activity where students must create questions in the Moodle question bank. A teacher grades the questions.

 

The students get a grade for the questions they create.

You can specify a percentage of the grade to be automatically assigned depending on how many of the required questions the student creates and the rest of the grade awarded to the student to be dependent on the grade a teacher assigns for the questions created. 

 

It is possible to choose that the activity is 100% automatic grading without any teacher manual grading, or 100% manually graded by teachers.

 

You can chose the question types students will be allowed to create and the number of questions required to complete the activity.
