Teaching and E-learning: So, why we are focusing on Blended Learning at HPSS?

Teaching and E-learning: So, why we are focusing on Blended Learning at HPSS? | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

For many years now I have been championing the need for all schools and all students to engage in e-learning, and whilst I definitely sense there is a ground swell of support for this notion I am still patently aware that it is important to be clear about why this should be a priority. I initially trialed e-learning because I suspected it would engage learners and would provide an opportunity for students to continue learning and engaging in the work I set, anytime, anywhere. These continue to be compelling arguments for blended learning, however it is becoming increasing clear that this is in fact just the tip of the pedagogical iceberg.

The positioning of educational technologists in enhancing the student experience - ALT Open Access Repository

The positioning of educational technologists in enhancing the student experience - ALT Open Access Repository | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
The objective of this study was to determine whether the literature identified:

1. any evidence that the role of educational technologists has enhanced the student learning experience, particularly directly (i.e. having direct contact with students) but also indirectly.
2. if there is any such evidence, is it possible to correlate the enhancement with any
particular role or position of educational technologists within the institution?

This objective was pursued primarily by using a framework of nine questions within a social networking site called Cloudworks and inviting contributors to identify and discuss relevant literature.

29.5 Tips for Successfully Managing a Project | Blog | Project Based Learning | BIE

29.5 Tips for Successfully Managing a Project | Blog | Project Based Learning | BIE | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Many of the teachers we work with find it fairly easy to envision the end of a project – the products students will create, and the big finish when students publicly share their work, their solution to a problem, or their answer to a Driving Question. And with a little coaching, teachers can plan an effective Entry Event to launch the project and get students underway on their initial tasks. But one of the most challenging parts of PBL is figuring out the “middle part” of a project – how to manage the day-to-day work of students and teams.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 15, 2014 1:52 PM

I find it interesting that we want to prepare good citizens. Preparing good people with strong character leads to good citizens. I will take the latter over the former, because I will get the former. Plato had a theory of educating for good citizens. It was very narrow. Is that what we want?

15 Tips For Facilitating Online Discussion - Edudemic | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Facilitating discussions between students is one of those things that is infinitely easier when you’re teaching in a physical classroom rather than online. When the students are all in one room, discussions happen more naturally. Facilitating the same type of productive, useful discussion when teaching online is more of a challenge. The handy infographic below …

User Login | FlipQuiz | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

FlipQuiz™ was created to provide educators with a quick way to create gameshow-style boards for test reviews in the classroom. Traditionally, these are created (tediously) using posterboard, chalkboards, or dry-erase markers on an overhead slide. The review questions are usually even written on a separate sheet of paper.


With FlipQuiz™, questions are displayed on-screen and boards are saved for later use. Combined with a well-designed board, students are more likely to be interested and stay engaged with an otherwise disjunct test review process.

Education can change a girl’s life and that of her family, community and society at large. If all women had a primary and secondary education, child marriages and child mortality could fall by 49% and 64% respectively. With just primary education for all women, maternal deaths could be reduced by two-thirds.
