Technology in Higher Education: Defining the Strategic Leader

Information technology has value because it can support and extend human capability, but its value also depends on people. People make IT work, hence our organizations’ focus on professional development. We work with first-time managers. We work with seasoned professionals. Moreover, as technology changes, as issues ebb and flow, and as institutional directions are refined, the profession and its needs change. Our roles, responsibilities, and competencies must adapt as well. No matter what the issue, we must develop people and their potential.

Coding: 123...Doodle! #SketchNoting

Coding: 123...Doodle! #SketchNoting | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
 I have been exploring sketch-noting and brain-doodling lately and thought it would be a great vehicle my students to think, process, and organize information.  I started off with a class discussion and asking my students what they find challenging about note-taking.  Many of them shared that they found it hard to keep up with the speaker, and others said that they sometimes wrote so furiously that they couldn't understand their own handwriting when it came time to study for the tests.  Others shared how they found it difficult to make sense of their notes.  Sketch-noting seemed a great way to address some of these issues.  Introducing it through sample images of sketchnoting from Google images and sites like Sketchnote Army was a great way to start.  For more tutorials and ideas of places to start with doodling, I went to Brain Doodles.

Making Accessible Games with Twine Audio – ProfHacker - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Making Accessible Games with Twine Audio – ProfHacker - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Twine and Twine 2 as platforms that are very friendly to completely new developers and those who haven’t previously programmed, but Twine is also a platform that can offer accessibility from the user end. All text-based games build with well-structured HTML have a strong potential to be fairly easily manipulated through adaptive technologies, including screen readers. Whenever we’re thinking about integrating a new technology into teaching and learning, it’s important to consider its accessibility. This can mean considering principles of universal design, as George Williams has discussed several times on ProfHacker in the past, as well as the needs of specific user groups. Games as a whole are all over the place in their accessibility, which can make some games less usable for many users.

Why Technology Will Never Fix Education

Why Technology Will Never Fix Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The real obstacle is student motivation, and no gadget can create that.


The Law of Amplification provides one such framework: At heart, it affirms that technology is a tool, which means that any positive effects depend on well-intentioned, capable people. But this also means that good outcomes are never guaranteed. What amplification predicts is that technological effects follow underlying social currents.

Balancing Online Teaching Activities: Strategies for Optimizing Efficiency and Effectiveness

Balancing Online Teaching Activities: Strategies for Optimizing Efficiency and Effectiveness | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Increased demands in professional expectations have required online faculty to learn how to balance multiple roles in an open-ended, changing, and relatively unstructured job. In this paper, we argue that being strategic about one’s balance of the various facets of online teaching will improve one’s teaching efficiency and effectiveness. We discuss the balancing issues associated with four key online teaching facets: course design/development, delivery of the course content, assessments/feedback, and professional development. We conclude with a template for a strategic professional development plan that addresses these key facets.

What Does ‘Personalized Learning’ Look Like? Video Series Aims to Go Beyond Hype – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

What Does ‘Personalized Learning’ Look Like? Video Series Aims to Go Beyond Hype – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

An education blog whose authors believe there’s too much hype around “personalized learning” technology has posted a series of video case studies about the trend, hoping to help get beyond overheated rhetoric.


The result is an unusual look at five colleges trying high-tech classroom experiments and wrestling with how new teaching methods change the role of students and teachers.


The videos were produced by the education-technology blog e-Literate, with the support of a $350,000 grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The case studies, divided into short segments covering different topics, together resemble a MOOC. That’s no accident, says Michael Feldstein, founder of the blog and a host of the videos, who hopes that some teaching-with-technology centers will use the videos in their professional-development workshops.
