How YouTube Is Changing The Classroom

How YouTube Is Changing The Classroom | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it

The Indiana Department of Education is backing trials to see if the model can work in the state’s public schools. John Keller, the department’s assistant superintendent for technology, says state officials want Indiana “to be seen as a place where innovation happens in schools,” and is looking seriously at the flipped classroom as part of a broader push towards that goal.

"During the second day of the conference I presented on Communicating and Connecting With Social Media with my co-authors Bill Ferriter and Jason Ramsden.  Throughout the 45 minute presentation we shared proven strategies to harness the power inherent within social media tools to enhance communications, establish the foundation for a positive public relations platform, connect with other educators to learn, and create policies to ensure effective use.  I believe our session went very well and attendees left with a vision and strategies..."

Dozens of teachers at high schools and universities – including several in California – are assigning their students to write and edit entries for the online encyclopedia. The projects are designed to help students improve their research and writing skills, while adding to the public knowledge.

Editorial | Siemens | The International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning

New technologies that influence how information is created and shared and how people connect and socialize hold promise for adoption in education. Much like the idea of a book necessitated the development of the library or the idea of structured curriculum and domains of knowledge produced classrooms, the idea of the Internet – distributed, social, networked – influences the structure of education, teaching, and learning. Educators and researchers face a challenge in determining how the existing education system will be influenced and the new roles that will be expected of learners, teachers, and administrators. Information-centric fields such as journalism have struggled with the new democracy of information creation for over a decade...

The Price of Milk – domestic, world markets and  | eLearnind and Economics blog

The Price of Milk – domestic, world markets and  | eLearnind and Economics blog | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it
Milk seems like such a nice friendly product, but in New Zealand the rising cost of the essential good is getting everyone annoyed. In the past 5 years the price of dairy products in New Zealand has risen by 50%. Most assume that because of New Zealand’s comparative advantage (good weather, soils, grass growth and livestock) farmers produce milk in such great quantities that it should therefore also be cheap for consumers at the local shop. Our understanding of international trade is that it alters the domestic market, might suggest that firms who export on the global market are focused and motivated by world prices.

What does a good IB Economics Commentary look like?

What does a good IB Economics Commentary look like? | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it
It’s that time of the IB Economics course when I get to start teaching my year one students to write the dreaded Internal Assessment Commentaries. For their first IA, my students are writing a commentary on an article relating to Section 2.1 and 2.2 of the IB course, on supply, demand, market equilibrium and elasticities.

After reading a dozen or so out of my 38 students’ first drafts, I began to realize that what many of them needed was a clearer idea of what a good IB Economics commentary should look like. So I went back through past years’ commentaries and decided in the end just to write a sample commentary myself...

Standardization and ‘Best Practice’ Should Not Share the Same Bed

Jack Grove’s article begins with the phrase “Standardized teacher training,” and it goes on to say that 70% of British academics have rejected this proposal by the Higher Education Academy. The issue isn’t with teacher training per se. It’s with the whole notion of standardization. Grove cites Julie Hall, co-chair of the Staff and Educational Development Association, who defends the rejection: “Universities have designed their own programs over the past 20 years in this area, so this sounded like the HEA was telling ­institutions what to do. We are glad it has listened to us – a one-size-fits-all approach will not work” (“British Academics Reject Training,” Times Higher Education, 11.3.11)...

Twitter Strategies

Twitter Strategies | Business and Economics: E-Learning and Blended Learning | Scoop.it
One of the first things I do, when I am considering someone to follow, is to check his, or her Twitter Profile. I limit myself to following educators, because I gear my Twitter account for professional learning. Many people have second Twitter accounts for friends and relatives. Once I access a person’s Profile I can verify that he or she is an educator and I can see the most recent tweets. The tweets will give an indication of the person’s collaboration. If there is no profile filled out, I usually do not follow that person.

Webinar: “Cultivating the Executive Mind: Is Mindfulness the Key to 21st Century Economic Survival?” | Jeremy Hunter

One hour video: "Peter Drucker, the founder of the discipline of modern management, asserted that making knowledge workers productive was the key to economic survival for the developed economies. Though knowledge workers use their minds to make a living, are they ever taught to use their minds more effectively? This webinar discusses my decade-old mindfulness program at the Drucker School of Management designed to teach managers to manage themselves."
