More about Blackboard’s “Project XP” | Moodle News

XP stands for “Cross Platform”.  Anyways, here’s the full Blackboard keynote from the recent BBWorld event down in New Orleans, Louisiana.  During the keynote Project XP (xpLOR) was announced and explained.  You can catch up on it here (starts at about 13 minutes in): http://youtu.be/GeHQnNHUN8M?hd=1&t=13m3s.

xpLor started as a project at Moodlerooms, built to be cross platform already its no surprise that Blackboard is embracing it as a bridge between it’s multiple LMS solutions (Angel, Learn, Joule, etc.).

¿Son los MOOC educación a distancia (EaD)? | Contextos universitarios mediados

¿Son los MOOC educación a distancia (EaD)? | Contextos universitarios mediados | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

En nuestro anterior post de este blog, ¿Qué es educación a distancia (EaD)? apuntábamos las que considerábamos mínimas características de un curso, programa o institución para que la pudiéramos denominar, desde mi punto de vista, como de educación a distancia. Con esas características y la definición pertinente podemos incluir en esa amplia denominación tanto las primeras prácticas de EaD desarrolladas con medios y recursos convencionales, fundamentalmente material impreso, correo postal, teléfono, radio y puntuales sesiones presenciales, como las de la era digital, de la 2.0, o lo que venga, pero que mantengan esas características.

Pues bien, ante esa perspectiva de inclusión en la generalidad de un concepto, planteo en esta entrada la pregunta de su título ¿Son los MOOC educación a distancia (EaD)?...

Before you make one to show your students, check to see if they don't already have one made you can use.

YouTube makes it easier for playlist creators to tell a story with new intro and outro feature

YouTube makes it easier for playlist creators to tell a story with new intro and outro feature | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Excerped from article:

"YouTube decided to help out the community a bit by releasing a new intro and outro feature that lets you insert professional clips in between your videos easily.

 

YouTube Engineer Eric Lundberg said:

"You can choose from a variety of styles for text introductions and even add royalty-free music tracks. Interstitials will appear as unlisted videos in your account, and are eligible for monetization if they are at least 15 seconds long."

 

These particular features allow video creators to tell a full story in a series of videos. Even if you’re not making your own videos, creating a playlist is a way of providing a valuable service to the community."

Susan Kay Daniels's curator insight, January 9, 2013 2:21 AM

Youtube has introduced a great curating feature for the playlist service. You can insert professional clips in between your videos, you can choose from a variety of styles for text introductions, add royalty-free music tracks and your interstitials will appear as unlisted videos in your account and are eligible for monetization if they are 15 seconds long.

Are kids really motivated by technology?

Are kids really motivated by technology? | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

You can’t motivate students with technology because technology alone isn’t motivating. Worse yet, students are almost always ambivalent toward digital tools. While you may be completely jazzed by the interactive whiteboard in your classroom or the wiki that you just whipped up, your kids could probably care less.

Creative commons licensed pictures on flickr...

 

The panel on the left of the original displays the first 36 photos matching your search term. Click on any of these thumbnails to get a slightly larger image and the attribution details displayed in the right hand section. Right click the image and 'save image as' if you want to use this size, or click on the link in the attribution text to go to flickr and chose a different sized image. Don't forget to include the attribution text in any work you produce using the picture.

 

To use the web app. just enter a word (or words) into the textbox. Click on 'find' and you'll get all photos with a CC license that match *all* the search word(s) in the picture's title, tags or description (sorted in order of 'interestingness', the photo voted most interesting first). The CC licences for a default search are: "Attribution License", "Attribution-NoDerivs License", "Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs License", "Attribution-NonCommercial License", "Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike License" and "Attribution-ShareAlike License"

 

If you want to edit a photo, you'll need to restrict the search to just those licenses that allow derivatives. Checking the 'for editing' box ensures that just those photos licensed: "Attribution License", "Attribution-NonCommercial License", "Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike License" and "Attribution-ShareAlike License" are returned

 

Either way you're going to have to attribute the picture. I always use a CC license on my material, and don't go in for commercial uses, so the other varieties of CC license are irrelevant to me personally, YMMV.

Curated Video Collection Of Talks, Lectures, Presentations: Keen Talks

Curated Video Collection Of Talks, Lectures, Presentations: Keen Talks | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: If you enjoy the presentations on TED Talks you may also enjoy Keen Talks, a website that takes thousands of lectures, presentations, and debates on various topics sorted by speaker, topic, category, and year of release.

 

From review article on MakeUseOf:

"Keen Talks’ minimalist design is a definite plus, allowing you to search for videos speedily.

...You can also read the quick and witty description of each video to help capture what the talk is all about.
What’s most interesting about Keen Talks is that its collection covers from various sources, compared to TED Talks where you are only limited with TED’s material..."

 

 

From About page on Keen Talks:

"We strive to build one stop destination for all users who want to learn and expand their knowledge in various fields like science, technology, health, psychology etc.

We curate any form of speech that can bring a fair amount of intellect on the table. We don’t curate just lectures or talks, but a whole range of engaging and interesting videos harnessed across the interwebs.


It’s an awesome library packed with video material, delivered by renowned intellectuals around the globe.
Obviously this is not an educational site in a classical form. We rarely curate lectures in classroom setting or a whole courses for that matter, unless they’re stunning. What we offer is more broad intellectual range of all different kinds of public appearances by some of the finest world’s intellectual figures..."

iPad Apps for Multiple intelligences / Inteligencias múltiples y apps de iPad

iPad Apps for Multiple intelligences / Inteligencias múltiples y apps de iPad | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

 A couple of months ago I read a great book by Howard Gardner called Multiple Intelligences: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0465047688/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0465047688&linkCode=as2&tag=educatechnand-20

 

 

New Horizons in Theory and Practice. The book paves the way for a new theory set forth by Howard where he distinguishes between nine kinds of intelligences. Understanding the different types of intelligences will definitely help teachers tap into the real potential of their students.

 

Gust MEES: you should read also from Howard GARDNER "5 Minds for the Future" to understand really what the future needs and how Education can contribute to it http://www.amazon.com/Five-Minds-Future-Howard-Gardner/dp/1422145352/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1346059427&sr=1-1&keywords=5+minds+for+the+future+by+howard+gardner

 

 

 

Here is an overview of these intelligences :

How Children Learn: Portraits of Classrooms Around the World

How Children Learn: Portraits of Classrooms Around the World | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Since 2004, Julian Germain has been capturing the inner lives of schools around the world, from England to Nigeria to Qatar, in his large-scale photographs of schoolchildren in class. Classroom Portraits (public library) is part Where Children Sleep, part Bureaucratics, part What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets, part something else entirely — a poignant lens on a system-phenomenon that is both global in reach and strikingly local in degree of peculiarity, revealed through more than 450 portraits of schoolchildren from 20 countries.
