What’s the Difference Between a Flipped Classroom and Flipped Learning?

What’s the Difference Between a Flipped Classroom and Flipped Learning? | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

Why do I characterize this explanation as a flipped classroom and not flipped learning? Because, contrary to popular belief, these terms are not synonymous. Yet nearly every article written on these topics mistakenly equates them.

Keep in mind that no matter what 'method' you use it should be focused on the student and their learning. Very well explained in this article!

Robin Yu's curator insight, November 29, 2014 7:45 PM

Well explained.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 22, 2015 8:28 PM

This is a very important difference.

Assessment on the Web: Part 3

Assessment on the Web: Part 3 | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

Accreditation is the main roadblock to innovation in assessment and the wider educational landscape. Credentials are often the gatekeepers to opportunity, recognition, success. Unfortunately, accreditation systems are extremely slow to change, often deeply hierarchical, and transcripts don’t tell us much about interpersonal skills or mastery. But the web can.

On the web, communities come up with their own way to recognize accomplishment. Sometimes they are in line with traditional accreditation and sometimes they are not. These mechanisms are transparent and evolve over time in step with the way communities work and learn. Not surprisingly software developers were the first professional community to do this. They have developed standards of accomplishment and recognition that are built on the web. Other communities are following.

We’ve proposed a number of “opportunities” for how assessment can evolve on the web. The tension between new ways to recognize learning, and the old mechanisms of accrediting learning will increase. And however accreditation shakes out, the web will be an important aspect of how we showcase to others what we have done, the things we have learned, and who we are.

Social Media Policy vs Guideline vs Best Practice in Higher Education

Social Media Policy vs Guideline vs Best Practice in Higher Education | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

Social media use and understanding is no longer an option in education.  Some higher education institutions may have been slower than others, but overall one can see that social media has become part of the fabric of a college campus.  Not just in student use, but in marketing, community relations, student life, classroom activities and alumni engagement.

John Bostock's insight:

Although the specific examples relate to the USA, this blog article will be a useful starting point for anyone considering the deeper implications of using social media in a higher education context.

Is Student Feedback A Waste Of Time?

Is Student Feedback A Waste Of Time? | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

From the Aqua-tnet project blog :

 

"Obtaining student feedback on courses has become standard practice in many institutions. There is surely a simple logic that teachers and course managers should be listening to the views of students and taking them into account as they revise or develop future courses? I was therefore interested to read two other blog posts that take a very contrary view....."

Why 21st Century Learning Should Be More Like the 19th Century | Inside Higher Ed

Why 21st Century Learning Should Be More Like the 19th Century | Inside Higher Ed | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

By John Warner

At Higher Ed Beta, Steven Mintz, Executive Director of the University of Texas System’s Institute for Transformational Learning, argues in “Five Ways that 21st and 20th Century Learning Will Differ”  that we are in the midst of a data-driven educational transformation.

I would say that he offers predictions, except they aren’t so much predictions as commands, as he utilizes the future imperative throughout:
