Hacking Prezi as a Platform for Visual Composition and Design Experimentation - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Hacking Prezi as a Platform for Visual Composition and Design Experimentation - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

But if you start to think more creatively about what Prezi’s toolset offers, you begin to realize how powerful a tool it can be for designing a wide array of visual compositions. If one looks past the presentation use case, the combination of the flexibility of a nearly infinite digital canvas and easy-to-use design features makes for a powerful and highly accessible tool for developing thought maps, prototyping designs for digital interfaces and physical spaces, creating bespoke visualizations, and as a platform for comparative visual analysis and annotation.

Universities and Libraries Envision a 'Federated System' for Public Access to Research - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
 

As federal agencies scramble to meet an August 22 deadline to comply with a recent White House directive to expand public access to research, a group of university and library organizations says it has a workable, higher-education-driven solution. This week, the Association of American Universities, the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities, and the Association of Research Libraries are offering a plan they call the Shared Access Research Ecosystem, or Share.

"iPad workflows are really important to learning. Student work doesn’t often happen within just the one App. We need to be able to connect the work created in one App to enable us to develop it further within another.  Last night I met up with @joedale and we had a bit of an ‘App off’ and in our discussions, I mentioned an App called Figure (69p) made by the Propellerheads of ‘Reason‘ fame and excellent producers:"

Announcing: MOOC Research Initiative | MOOC Research

The dramatic increase in online education, particularly Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), presents researchers, academics, administrators, learners, and policy makers with a range of questions as to the effectiveness of this format of teaching and learning. To date, the impact of MOOCs and emerging forms of digital learning has been largely disseminated through press releases and university reports, with only limited peer-reviewed research publication. The proliferation of MOOCs in higher education requires a concerted and urgent research agenda.

The MOOC Research Initiative (MRI) will fill this research gap by evaluating MOOCs and how they impact teaching, learning, and education in general.

MRI is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation as part of a set of investments intended to explore the potential of MOOCs to extend access to postsecondary credentials through more personalized, more affordable pathways. MRI is a $400,000 investment with grants in the range of $10,000 – $25,000 each. The MRI grant program is led and administered by Athabasca University with support from an advisory committee of experts in learning design and MOOCs. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation supports Athabasca University and interested academic institutions through research grants to examine the efficacy of early MOOC models for various learner audiences and in a wide variety of contexts.

"El desafío es traducir las pedagogías de Paulo Freire al entorno digital"


Via Pablo Torres

Mónica Tejerina's curator insight, November 14, 2013 5:02 PM

 

 

El desafío consiste en llevar la tecnología a un lugar donde las fronteras ya no existan y donde el saber se distribuya equitativamente, y de este modo achicar la brecha digital, no solo del acceso sino también de los usos. Pero para ello también es  importante la formación de docentes preparados para este nuevo uso, la implementación desde el aprendizaje significativo y una nueva pedagogía. Tomando como ejemplo la pedagogía de Freire, es necesario resaltar la proximidad, la cercanía, el diálogo, el encuentro y  el intercambio. “Incorporar la pedagogía de Freire en el tercer entorno implica recuperar la reflexión sobre la pregunta, la problematización, el acontecimiento, la interculturalidad, y al mismo tiempo rescatar la dimensión política y de convivencia que signa la interacción escolar, un espacio en donde convive lo común y lo diverso" 16.
