HTML5 Goes Beyond Prezi But for Geeks Only: Impress.js

Robin Good: The video opening titles for Museum140 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObLiikJEt94) have been created with a new tool that leverages the power of HTML5 to achieve results that are identical to those that you can achieve with Prezi, the alternative presentation tool.

Impress.js is a presentation tool inspired by the idea behind prezi.com and based on the power of CSS3 transforms and transitions in modern browsers.

 

Though Impress.js remains for now a tool for geeks and people who can use code, Impress.js heralds the upcoming legion of HTML5 presentation tools that will be likely start to rapidly grow in 2012.

 

Text, images and graphic elements can be easily positioned on a virtually infinite canvas in which they can be easily scaled, resized and positioned at will. Even a 3D rendering effect is available.

 

Sample presentation:

Learning Styles Debunked: There is No Evidence Supporting Auditory and Visual Learning, Psychologists Say - Association for Psychological Science

"...The wide appeal of the idea that some students will learn better when material is presented visually and that others will learn better when the material is presented verbally, or even in some other way, is evident in the vast number of learning-style tests and teaching guides available for purchase and used in schools. But does scientific research really support the existence of different learning styles, or the hypothesis that people learn better when taught in a way that matches their own unique style?
Unfortunately, the answer is no, according to a major new report published this month in Psychological Science in the Public Interest, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science. The report, authored by a team of eminent researchers in the psychology of learning—Hal Pashler (University of San Diego), Mark McDaniel (Washington University in St. Louis), Doug Rohrer (University of South Florida), and Robert Bjork (University of California, Los Angeles)—reviews the existing literature on learning styles and finds that although numerous studies have purported to show the existence of different kinds of learners (such as “auditory learners” and “visual learners”), those studies have not used the type of randomized research designs  that would make their findings credible..."

The learning cycle and the power of asynchronous learning activities

The learning cycle and the power of asynchronous learning activities | blended learning | Scoop.it

...

When you structure in asynchronous learning activities through the various guises of learning technology tools and carefully facilitate such activities the stages of Taylor's cycle are given the best chance of being rowed through by the learner. It's easy for learners to capsize in the first time they encourage the disorientation stage and they'll keep doing this every time they encounter it. Pretty soon they shy away from the mental states associated with the learning cycle.

Blending Learning: The Convergence of Online and Face-to-Face Education

NACOL - North American Council for Online Learning :: Promising Practices in Online Learning Blending Learning: The Convergence of Online and Face-to-Face Education http://www.15centnewspaper.com/resources/inacolblend.pdf

"...blended learning should be approached not merely as a temporal construct, but rather as a fundamental redesign of the instructional model with the following characteristics:


" A shift from lecture- to student-centered instruction in which students become active and interactive learners (this shift should apply to the entire course, including face-to-face contact sessions);
* Increases in interaction between student-instructor, student-student, student-content, and student-outside resources;
*Integrated formative and summative assessment mechanisms for students and instructor.

 

Most importantly, in this view, blended learning represents a shift in instructional strategy. Just as online learning represents a fundamental shift in the delivery and instructional model of distance learning, blended learning offers the possibility to significantly change how teachers and administrators view online learning in the face-to-face setting. “The widespread adoption and availability of digital learning technologies has led to increased levels of integration of computer- mediated instructional elements into the traditional F2F [face to face] learning experience,” write Bonk and Graham, in the Handbook of Blended Learning."

 

-----
This is why I say there is a 'transformation' going on! It's not about things 'not working' or being 'broken', it's simply a necessary shift from doing things in a traditional school setting to doing things in a meaningfully different way. It's not about adding technology to teaching, it's about a transformation in what teaching means today. Exciting stuff!

Les dispositifs hybrides que nous considérons ici sont ainsi supportés par une plateforme technologique (un rassemblement d’outils) et leur caractère hybride provient d’une modification de leurs constituants (ressources, stratégies, méthodes, acteurs et finalités) par une recombinaison des temps et des lieux d’enseignement et d’apprentissage : il s’agit donc bien d’un continuum dont une dimension est liée au rapport présence-distance et une autre au rapport « enseigner » -« apprendre ».

Contexts and Choices: Learning Strategies in 2012 by Bill Brandon : Learning Solutions Magazine

Contexts and Choices: Learning Strategies in 2012 by Bill Brandon : Learning Solutions Magazine | blended learning | Scoop.it

“In 2012, we will be blessed by many choices for tools, methods, and models. Within each choice, we will have many options. Without a strategy, based on real context, we will be lost. Understand the context, and know the outcome you want, and you can define the strategy. Learn to go for ‘good enough,’ not ‘the best.’”

by Bill Brandon, December 30, 2011

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.

...---...---...-

There are three disruptive technologies that are going to play larger and larger parts in our work. These are not “new” in the sense that they have just appeared – in fact, we have literally been talking about them for years now. But mobile, social, and cloud technology are going to be changing business models, roles and relationships in more and more organizations in 2012, not just the early adopters.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.

1. Mobile

Mobile technology is already having an effect in secondary education as well as in higher education, where tablets and mobile phones are a standard part of the delivery system on many campuses. Consumer behavior is also affected by mobile devices; in 2011, the use of mobile devices to access the Web was closing in on desktop access, and most mobile phone owners used their devices for “social” purposes online. From texting to watching television to playing games, consumers have switched their behavior to smartphones. Finally, this year for the first time, time spent in mobile device use of apps passed the time spent using mobile devices to access the Web. These behavioral changes will increasingly show up in government and enterprise learning-related activities in 2012.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.

2. Social

Social technology is having similar effects on consumer behavior, but with interesting variations. For example, television producers have figured out how to make social comments on second screens (the iPad in the lap of a viewer while she watches television) part of the show. Social apps and sites are already a significant part of marketing products and ideas. Game designers increasingly add social features to their products. Could there be effects on learning in 2012?

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.

Ask yourself:

How can we engage individual learners on multiple platforms simultaneously? Are there learning goals in your organization that this would enhance?
How can we simultaneously engage multiple learners, including collaborative engagement across multiple platforms? Are there learning goals in your organization that this would enhance?
Can we socialize internal marketing of learning? Are there resources for learning in your organization that are under-utilized because nobody knows about them, or because nobody understands their value?

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.
Can we make games acceptable within organizations as a learning venue, including social engagement during games? Are there learning goals in your organization that games and collaboration in problem-solving could enhance?

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.
3. The Cloud

The “Cloud” (a metaphor for the Internet, the unseen “cloud” of servers used as a utility to store information and host applications and services in real time) is another phenomenon that has been discussed for several years. But developments, from Amazon’s EC2 platform to Apple’s iCloud have made it more familiar and more accessible. In addition, more enterprises are creating their own on-premise “clouds” as a means of gaining the advantages of cloud computing while having (at least some) control over security of their data and reliability of services. Combinations of The Cloud and on-premise clouds are also becoming more common.

Fortnightly Mailing: Lessons learned from using Khan Academy content in a blended learning pilot

Fortnightly Mailing: Lessons learned from using Khan Academy content in a blended learning pilot | blended learning | Scoop.it

Cet article de décembre 2011, compare les résultats d'apprentissages qui envisagent les "nouveaux d'arts d'apprendre" qui s'appuient sur la combinaison de l'un des usages communs d'Internet : YouTube.
Au delà de la pseudo équation "Meilleur résultat du cours d'algèbre = Youtube "Khan Academy" + méthodes d'apprentissages plus conventionnelles ?" L'auteur met en lumière les limites de la combinaison des outils et indique que ce qui donne sens à l'information c'est l'échange entre pairs et le prof sur une situation problème.
Il y est également question de la reconnaissance... Laquelle est la plus efficace ? Le nombre d'étoiles à la Khan Academy ou les vrais échanges ;-) ?

Research publications on Massive Open Online Courses and Personal Learning Environments

Research publications on Massive Open Online Courses and Personal Learning Environments | blended learning | Scoop.it

People interested in Massive Open Online Courses will probably be aware of the research by Helene Fournier and me on Personal Learning Environments and MOOCs. We carried out research in the MOOC PLENK2010 (The MOOC Personal Learning Environments Networks and Knowledge that was held in the fall of 2010). The data collected on this distributed course with 1641 participants has been massive as well. Its analysis has kept us and some fellow researchers busy over the past year. The research has resulted in a number of publications and I thought it might be useful to post links to all of our journal articles, conference papers and presentations that were published in relation to PLEs and MOOCs in one space. Each publication looks at the data from a different perspective, eg, requirements in a PLE, self-directed learning, learner support, creativity.

"Blended learning : c’est un mélange des deux précédents. Le formateur donne quelques cours en présentiel, mais les apprenants peuvent continuer à s’autoformer, à effectuer des exercices en ligne, à chatter entre eux ou à participer à des forums ou compléter des documents wiki… Ces séquences en ligne peuvent être synchrones – tout le monde se connecte en même temps – ou asynchrones – chacun apprend à son rythme – entre deux séances en présentiel…
C’est ce qu’on appelle l’apprentissage mixte."

collective learning examples | littlebylittlejohn.com

"Collective learning is fundamentally a type of learning that happens ‘in the real world’. There are lots of examples from industry so we (Anoush Margaryan, Collin Milligan, Lou McGill and I) collated together some examples below. Most of these examples are from industry. However there are examples from formal education. For example there are instances of teaching and learning in universities using real world datasets (case 3). There are also examples of blurring the boundaries between education and work through large scale, authentic tasks involving learner groups in teams with employees in the workplace (case 6). We plan to build this bank of examples by adding your examples and ideas."
