Making the Most of Media - Using Film in the Classroom | Edutopia.org

Making the Most of Media - Using Film in the Classroom | Edutopia.org | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it

With the advances in technology, it has never been easier to use or create films in classrooms - from elementary school to high school. And let’s face it, using film - whether watching them or actually making them - is often a heat motivator for students of all ages! There are teachers all over the world who are including YouTube or film clips in their lessons on a daily basis. Personally, I think there’s nothing better than starting off a lesson with a three minute video clip about the topic at hand. Flipped learning, too, relies heavily on the ability to make films and then post those films so that students can access them anywhere.

 

However, although the technical aspects have got easier, this doesn’t necessarily mean that films are being used as effectively as they could be. Let me give you an example of what I mean. In a history course that I was teaching a couple of years ago, there was a film that dealt with the topic at hand. One of my teachers thought that it would be advantageous to show a whole film loosely based on the topic - all three hours of it! The educational payoff in circumstances like this is limited - a much more successful approach would have been to use only short clips, interrogating the film as a secondary source for reliability and bias.

 

This year, I’m making a real commitment to using film better in class. To do that, I’ve come up with some tips - both for using films, and also for making films. Please, comment on my tips, and then share your own below.

Guide to Open Access Journals - OnlineSchools.org

Traditionally, college students have spent long nights in campus libraries thumbing through leatherbound volumes of academic journals and research reports. The importance of these publications has remained intact over the years, but most of today’s tech-savvy students opt to access this information using online databases.

These sites generally fall into two categories. Some databases require a paid subscription in order to access materials. In many cases, students who enroll at brick-and-mortar institutions are granted complimentary access to these sites while enrolled. Other sites, known as “open-access” databases, allow users to delve into journal entries free-of-charge. These sites are ideal for online students who would otherwise be required to foot the subscription bill themselves.

This guide looks at some of the most reputable open-access journal websites, as well as paid subscription databases that are still widely used by traditional college students.

Use Google Drive to Keep Your Online Class Schedule Up-to-Date | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it

Early last year I wrote about using Scholarpress Courseware + WordPress to manage classwebsites. While I’m still a big fan of WordPress Multisite for my class websites, I have in recent semesters moved away from using Courseware. For one, Courseware hasn’t been updated in awhile, and doesn’t seem to work as smoothly with recent versions of WordPress. More practically, however, I found myself getting frustrated when making changes to a class schedule in Courseware.

Blended Learning 2.0: A Visual Guide For Teachers - Edudemic

Blended Learning 2.0: A Visual Guide For Teachers - Edudemic | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it

by Jeff Dunn

 

"Blended learning has taken off as one of the big trends in education over the past several years. Like flipped classrooms and 1:1 environments, it’s one of the top ways for teachers to leverage the power of technology in the classroom. It’s not a new concept, to be sure. However, there’s a new guide to understanding and implementing what’s being billed as blended learning 2.0.

 

"There are a few key stages of proper implementation that you should know if you’re looking to start climbing the blended learning tree. Starting from down at the roots is the planning process. It’s about a lot more than just ‘planning’ on buying some iPads. Planning involves creating appropriate blended learning spaces. That means you have a nice place for students to gather and collaborate while using technology. Scroll down to the bottom of the graphic below to get started."
