Who's Using Learning Objectives? And How?

Who's Using Learning Objectives? And How? | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Are you using learning objectives to measure student achievement and success in your course?
Chances are, you do: In response to a recent survey by Cengage Learning, 96% of instructors are using learning objectives to define and measure the knowledge and skills that students should have as a result of participating in and completing their courses. This indicates that most institutions, and many instructors, value these measures of student learning as indicators of student achievement. And indeed, many institutions require instructors to report on learning outcome mastery at the end of each course, making accurate analysis of the utmost

Handy iPad Posters to Use in The First Week of School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Handy iPad Posters to Use in The First Week of School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

"If you are planning to incorporate iPad in your classroom teaching then you definitely need to work on some preliminary stuff before anything else. These are basically formalities and conventions students need to abide by when using iPad in class. Making students explicitly aware of their responsibilities behind using iPad in class will certainly help you tap into the full educational potential of this versatile gadget. I have gone through my archive and picked out these handy visuals for you to use with your students."

Gebruik je iPads in jouw klas? Dan zijn deze posters wellicht handig om te gebruiken. Je moet ze natuurlijk wel eerst even vertalen in het Nederlands.

Essay on study of ebook publishing @insidehighered

Essay on study of ebook publishing @insidehighered | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

A technological visionary created a little stir in the late ‘00s by declaring that the era of the paper-and-ink book as dominant cultural form was winding down rapidly as the ebook took its place. As I recall, the switch-off was supposed to be complete by the year 2015 -- though not by a particular date, making it impossible to mark your day planner accordingly.


Cultural dominance is hard to measure. And while we do have sales figures, even they leave room for interpretation. In the June issue of Information Research, the peer-reviewed journal’s founder T.D. Wilson takes a look at variations in the numbers across national borders and language differences in a paper called “The E-Book Phenomenon: A Disruptive Technology.” Wilson is a senior professor at the Swedish School of Library and Information Science, University of Borås, and his paper is in part a report on research on the impact of e-publishing in Sweden.

Discriminación o neutralidad en la red: ésa es la cuestión

Discriminación o neutralidad en la red: ésa es la cuestión | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

"..Todas estas discusiones sobre la neutralidad de la red hacen que, y tal vez sin advertirlo, quienes usamos plataformas y aplicaciones que se sirven de la Internet, estemos viviendo un momento que puede marcar un cambio fundamental en nuestra vida en el ciberespacio. Una mala regulación impactaría negativamente en la Internet tal como la conocemos. El debate está servido en la mesa global. Y, en Argentina, hay tiempo para que se corrijan errores que no lleven a privilegiar a unos pocos en perjuicio de muchos."
