More great info about Content Curation - I'm quite cra cra for curation!

Kim Lindskog's curator insight, July 25, 2014 5:02 PM

Curation - the act of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a coherent way, organized around a specific topic(s). What a great skill to teach students

The Art of the Discussion Prompt

The Art of the Discussion Prompt | BLAHHCANDY Things Learning | Scoop.it
By Alex Joppie: Discussions are sometimes called the engine of an online course. Discussions provide an opportunity for students to engage with the course content, with each other, and with you—the professor—simultaneously, which means they have a lot of potential for meaningful learning and high retention.There is no guarantee that students will really apply themselves by just creating a discussion. What you get out of a discussion assignment depends on what you put into it. Here are some tips for writing your discussion prompt, selecting your settings, and participating in the discussion.

Top Ten Moodle Course Design No-Nos

Top Ten Moodle Course Design No-Nos | BLAHHCANDY Things Learning | Scoop.it
“So… you’ve read all the blogs and articles you can find telling you what you should do when designing Moodle courses, but you’re still not 100% happy with what you’ve developed? Well, welcome to the post that tells you what not to do. Typically, I wouldn’t use negative examples to express how to implement best practices in Moodle course design, but sometimes we all just need a clear and concise ‘what not to do’ list, don’t we? For today’s blog, I’m going to share with you my personal, top ten “Moodle course design no-no’s”!”

Why do so many Moodle courses suck?

Why do so many Moodle courses suck? | BLAHHCANDY Things Learning | Scoop.it
Moodle is a magnificent free product and has the potential to enable schools and teachers to build wonderfully unique interactive online learning courses in which learner interaction can be tracked, measured and responded to. Despite this the vast majority of Moodle courses I see are a long list of Word and PDF documents with at best a few forums that enable a minimum of human social interaction.

Donna Farren's curator insight, August 1, 2014 8:16 AM

Nik makes some great points about Moodle - or really putting any content online - there has to be instructional design training, online teaching training or blended teaching training and how to select content for online delivery.  technical training alone is not enough.

irene's curator insight, August 4, 2014 11:51 PM

Interesting observation - echoes my own experience

Mikko Hakala's curator insight, August 7, 2014 5:40 PM

Problems and possibilities of Moodle (and other similar platforms) outlined by Nik Peachey:

 

* Why Moodle courses often suck?

Not so intuitive platform to work with, lack of teacher training and skills to create online learning material (I agree with these points), excess security issues.

 

* What to do to improve.

 

* Comment about ready-made courses.

There are various problems, for example these often contain little student-teacher or peer interaction. I agree that the ready-made digital material, in my experience, is not very personalisable (and therefore difficult to teach in an inspired way).

 

* How to develop your Moodle skills?

The post gives 9 links to practical video tutorials (how to create a quiz, add a youtube, etc.). There are also free Moodle platforms to practice.

New: Bloom's Taxonomy Planning Kit for Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | BLAHHCANDY Things Learning | Scoop.it
The reason why I am sharing this work here is because it provides a new way to think about Bloom's Taxonomy. In Bloom's Taxonomy Planning Kit, you will be offered with a variety of key words, action verbs, outcomes and questions related to each of the thinking levels in the taxonomy. Here is the link of the original chart, try to zoom it in to make it legible.

Great resource.

Phil Chappell's comment, March 30, 2014 2:18 AM
Thanks Rob. You're correct.I have not come up with my own taxonomy, but I never intended to. Unfortunately we're no closer to empirical evidence then. I'm aware of the genesis of the work, and a group I'm in is puzzling over how it has been recontextualised to the teaching domain and become rather doctrinaire. I do hope, however, that it is a little more pedagogically valuable than Chomsky's work. It would be an interesting PhD study for someone so inclined - to chart a research agenda for Bloom's taxonomy as applied to education.
Karyn McGinley's curator insight, April 5, 2014 4:07 PM

Thanks for sharing this.  Anything new that has to do with Bloom's has got to be good!
