Wiping out the blackboard

Wiping out the blackboard | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

CLASSROOMS have had computers for decades, but in the past few years the buzz about “education technology” (or edtech) has become persistent, especially in America. This is because of new generations of learning software, free online tutorials and better connectivity.

 

Students are also getting ever more gadgets, as iPads and other tablets are handed out in schools. Adaptive learning software is starting to show great promise. These tools offer personalised education for every child, so that they can learn at their own pace.

 

Free online courses such as the KhanAcademy’s mathematics classes are allowing schools to take a more selective approach in acquiring learning resources. (Why buy a digital maths textbook when you can use an online course free?)

 

Tony Wan, a staff writer at Edsurge, predicts that 2014 will see a big push to making coding and computer science part of the curriculum, with children encouraged to be producers rather than consumers of technology. Jason Tomassini, a spokesperson for Digital Promise, a non-profit that works to spur innovation in education, predicts that 2014 will see less emphasis on one-to-one devices and more on educational outcomes. To that end, Mr Tomassini's group is offering a new initiative in 2014, with funding from the Gates Foundation, called Teacher Wallets. Three hundred teachers will receive $6,000 each. With this they can buy digital courseware, and make their own decisions about the technology they use in the classroom. Connectivity in schools will continue to improve in 2014 but will not be as fast or cheap as it should be.

Academics to Udacity Founder: Told Ya – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Academics to Udacity Founder: Told Ya – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

In a new magazine profile of Sebastian Thrun, the Udacity founder calls his company’s massive open online courses a “lousy product” to use for educating underprepared college students. That assertion has prompted a chorus of I-told-you-sos from his critics in academe.

 

In interviews for the Fast Company profile, Mr. Thrun reflected on the discouraging results of an experiment at San Jose State University in which instructors used Udacity’s online platform to teach mathematics. Some of the students were enrolled at the university, and some at a local high school.

 

“We were on the front pages of newspapers and magazines, and at the same time, I was realizing, we don’t educate people as others wished, or as I wished. We have a lousy product,” Mr. Thrun told the reporter, Max Chafkin. “It was a painful moment.”

Los MOOCs como tecnologías disruptivas: estrategias para mejorar la experiencia de aprendizaje y la calidad de los MOOCs. Gráinne Conole.

Miguel Zapata-Ros's curator insight, December 2, 2013 4:04 PM

Se argumenta que el discurso actual sobre el concepto de xMOOCs (basado principalmente en torno a la interacción con el contenido y la adopción esencialmente de un enfoque de aprendizaje conductista) y cMOOCs (que se centran en aprovechar el poder de los medios sociales y la interacción con los compañeros, con la adopción de un enfoque de aprendizaje conectivista), es una forma inadecuada de describir los tipos de MOOCs y las modalidades en las que los estudiantes se involucran con ellos. Se proporcionará una breve historia de la aparición de los MOOCs y la descripción de los actores principales. Se introducirá una forma alternativa de categorizar los MOOCs, en función de sus características clave. Luego, se describirá el modelo de las 7Cs para el diseño de aprendizaje, que puede ser
utilizado para diseñar MOOCs con criterios más pedagógicos, lo que mejorará la experiencia del estudiante y asegurará la garantía de calidad.

Traducción de Nora Lizenberg

Adaptación de Miguel Zapata

Marta Torán's curator insight, December 4, 2013 1:01 PM

Un interesante documento sobre los MOOCs.

 

Repasa su historia.

Constata que la división entre cMOOC y xMOOC es demasiado simple.

Revisa la calidad de la enseñanza que facilitan.

Aplica diferentes criterios a diferentes modelos de MOOC.

4Cs: Communication, Collaboration, Critical thinking and Creativity | Technology Enhanced Learning Blog | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The video is described as;

“In an increasingly complex, demanding and competitive 21st century, students need to learn more than the 3R’s they are tested on in school. It’s time to help them go “above & beyond”, by embracing the 4Cs –communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity.

“To get the word out to about the “3Rs + 4Cs” approach, P21 and FableVision partnered to produce a short, animated film called Above & Beyond. Enjoy & share, so we can help ALL our students flourish in the 21st century.”

Free Technology for Teachers: Three Good and Free Options for Mobile Video Editing

Free Technology for Teachers: Three Good and Free Options for Mobile Video Editing | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

One of the elements that is common to almost every video recorded on a mobile device is "throw away" footage at the beginning and end of every video. "Throw away" footage is the five seconds of giggling, shaky shots of the ground, and other nonsense that is captured at the beginning and end of a video. Your students can save time in the final editing of a video if they clip the "throw away" footage before they upload it to their desktop video editor of choice (iMovie, Movie Maker, Kdenlive). Here are three free tools that students can use to trim videos on their mobile devices.
