"...In the case of instructional uses, Twitter can be used to: - provide students with a way to connect with each other and other students around the globe to discuss their learning - create complex learning activities (i.e. students take on the role of an historical figure or character they are learning about and tweet as if they were that person) - search for current events or search for links to other websites offering information to topics that they are researching In the case of school communication, Twitter can be used: - as a communication gateway for teachers and school administrators looking to communicate with their parent community in a new and mobile way - a place to provide parents with links to resources or supports for their children..."

Donald Clark Plan B: 7 compelling arguments for peer learning

"Learning lurches between extremes: the formal v informal, didactic v discover , self-paced v social, teaching v learning. But is there a bridge between these extremes, something that cleverly combines teaching and learning? Over the years, starting with Judith Harris’s brilliant (and shocking) work on peer pressure, then Eric Mazur’s work at Harvard but also through several presentations at a recent JISC E-assessment conference, I’ve been smitten by peer learning. The idea is to encourage learners to learn from each other. Compelling arguments?"

Donald Clark Plan B: 21st Century Skills are so last century!

Donald Clark Plan B: 21st Century Skills are so last century! | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it
"The new mantra, the next big thing, among educators who need a serious sounding phrase to rattle around in reports is ‘21st Century Skills’. I hear it often, almost always in some overlong, text-heavy, Powerpoint presentation at an educational conference, where collaboration, creativity and communication skills are in short supply. Thank god for wifi! But does this idee fixe bear scrutiny? In a nice piece of work by Stepahnie Otttenheijm, she asked (radical eh?) some youngsters what 21st C skills they thought they’d need. Not one of the usual suspects came up. They were less vague, much bolder and far more realistic. Rather than these usual suspects and abstract nouns, they wanted to know how to create and maintain a strong digital identity, be nice, recognise what’s learnt outside school, learn how to search use my Facebook privacy settings. My suspicion is that they know far more about this than we adults."

To Really Drive Enterprise 2.0 Forward We Need A Behaviour Change | trainingwreck | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it
By Dan Pontefract

"At the beginning of the year, on January 2 in fact, I wrote about reciprocity. My hopes were that we’d begin using the behavior of reciprocity both within the walls of our organizations as well as being members of society at large.

It’s my personal belief that we’ve taken some positive steps forward in society (think you, as a person) but within the construct of organizations (or work life) we’re not where we should be.

A joint effort of Capgemini Consulting and the MIT Center for Digital Business resulted in a wonderful report recently published entitled, “Digital Transformation: A Road-Map for Billion-Dollar Organizations”.

One key line struck me:

"Whether using new or traditional technologies, the key to digital transformation is re-envisioning and driving change in how the company operates. That’s a management and people challenge, not just a technology one..."

elearnspace › Emergent learning, connections, design for learning

"IRRODL continues to solidify its reputation as the leading journal in the educational technology field that balances thoughtful research with very timely and relevant journal themes, as indicated by the latest special issue – Emergent Learning, Connections, Design for Learning. IRRODL seems to capture the zeitgeist of online learning more rapidly than others. Congrats to Terry Anderson (editor) and Rod Sims & Elena Kays (editors of this special issue) for an outstanding publication.

Not sure if a disclaimer is necessary, as I’m sure readers will make up their own minds and I wasn’t involved with this IRRODL issue. However, just in case, several of the articles reference open online courses that I’ve helped to organize."

"Some people love and embrace education technology. Erika Veth is one of those people. She is the Faculty Support Services Manager in the Department of Distance Education at Oregon Institute of Technology (congrats on the new job!). She recently won the grand prize in the cross-curricular category on the Adobe Education Exchange.

She submitted a terrific teaching resource where she got her students to visualize and create exciting multimedia projects. More details (and a student’s video) are available here.

I had the honor of being able to ask Erika a few questions about the role of technology in the classroom, which one is her favorite, the effectiveness of education technology, and more. Below is the interview with Erika. Be sure to check out her entry ‘Take Action!‘ and use it as inspiration for your very own digital media lesson..."

Paper: One on one to thousands: Expanding the conversations of the ALL practitioner

By Timothy John Beaumont

 

Abstract

 

Perceptions of academic language and learning (ALL) practitioners being “pinned to the margins” (Stevenson & Kokkinn, 2007) have been subject to challenges as ALL research and practices have strengthened the field, and as practices have become increasingly developmental, flexible and integrated. However, longstanding misconceptions of the nature of ALL work have not been easy to overcome, and integrated and embedded forms of ALL practice have not always been easy to implement. This paper introduces the Electronic Just-in-Time Session, a form of integrated and developmental learning support which has experienced initial success in terms of student uptake and feedback in the Faculty of Business and Economics of the University of Melbourne. Short conversations are filmed and linked to the Learning Management System pages of specific subjects. The short films can augment subject content by featuring conversations between learning advisers and subject coordinators, lecturers, tutors and library staff. Sessions are ideally suited for academic skills support that is highly tailored for particular subjects. However, sessions may also focus on content or on generic skills and can feature related resources. This paper presents an overview of this initiative before discussing how the success of the format can be attributed to the sessions being typically content-rich, assessment-task specific, user-friendly, flexible, non-didactic, non-remedial, and built on multiple sources of expertise.

Digital Transformation: A Road-Map for Billion-Dollar Organizations | Thought Leadership | Capgemini North America | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it
Read the main study findings from the digital transformation study conducted by Capgemini Consulting and the MIT Center for Digital Business.
Digital transformation – the use of technology to radically improve performance or reach of enterprises – is becoming a hot topic for companies across the globe.

Executives in all industries are using digital advances such as analytics, mobility, social media and smart embedded devices – and improving their use of traditional technologies such as ERP – to change customer relationships, internal processes, and value propositions. Other executives, seeing how fast digital technology disrupted media industries in the past decade, know they need to pay attention to changes in their industries now.

How can senior executives successfully lead digital transformation? While many experts urge companies to get started on the digital transformation journey, few tell how to do it. In this report we share the findings from a global study of how 157 executives in 50 large traditional companies are managing – and benefiting from – digital transformation.

"The most popular complaints about online learning are lack of engagement, slow response time from the instructor, and a loss of the sense of community.

Imagine that it’s your first day of school. You’re walking down a hallway with no signs or room numbers. You don’t know who your teacher is, who your fellow classmates are, and no one will help you find your class. Are you really concerned about learning algebra at this point?"
