Competency-based education may get a boost | Inside Higher Ed

Competency-based education may get a boost | Inside Higher Ed | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Competency-based education could be a game-changer for adult students, probably more so than MOOCs. Yet despite the backing of powerful supporters, colleges have been reluctant to go all-in because they are unsure whether accreditors and the federal government will give the nod to degree programs that look nothing like the traditional college model.

Formatos interactivos para la práctica de un cálculo pensado, flexible y basado en números. | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Aunque aún seamos claramente minoría, somos cada vez más los/as maestros/as que pretendemos que los contenidos propios de la aritmética escolar no se aborden de manera mecánica y rutinaria sino que sean soporte para hacer verdadera matemática; somos cada vez más los que priorizamos los significados y las estrategias, basadas en las propiedades de las operaciones, sobre la pura mecánica desprovista de significación; los que trabajamos con números y no con cifras; los que defendemos que los cálculos pueden realizarse de manera flexible; los que estamos convencidos de que los métodos de cálculo mental no deben ser en esencia diferentes de los métodos de cálculo escritos.

How To Make Students Better Online Researchers

How To Make Students Better Online Researchers | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Getting kids to really focus on what exactly they are searching for, and then be able to further distill idea into a few key specific search terms is a skill that we must teach students, and we have to do it over and over again. We never question the vital importance of teaching literacy, but we have to be mindful that there are many kinds of “literacies”. An ever more important one that ALL teachers need to be aware of is digital literacy. I could go off in many directions on this, but for the purpose of this post I’m focusing strictly on the digital literacy of searching.

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

Before the advent of Twitter, most educators I know had limited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside their building. Some subscribed to listservs or participated in online forums, but these outlets lacked critical mass; teachers also networked at in-person conferences and training sessions, but these isolated events didn't provide ongoing support.

Enter Twitter. I've heard many educators say that Twitter is the most effective way to collaborate and that they've learned more with Twitter than they have from years of formal professional development.
