The 6 types of Questions your Students Need to Know about ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The 6 types of Questions your Students Need to Know about ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Cloud-based Learning | Scoop.it

Learning is all about asking questions and finding answers to them. An inquisitive mind is one that goes beyond the status quo and probes deep below surface meanings. To foster such kind of  thinking inside our classroom requires some hard work and a serious investment in time and efforts. We, as teachers and educators, need to prepare the right environment where inquisitive minds can nourish and grow. We need to water this environment with a culture of asking questions.

Louise Lewis's insight:

Absolutely critical.  Digital literacy particularly where it relates to education should be nutured early on in learning.  How that is done, is not adhoc but rather through considered pedagogical approaches that prompt learner autonomy.

Louise Lewis's insight:
The power of using relevant graphics in your e-learning content cannot be under-estimated. Add some audio and you will engage a larger group of learners. The trick is to ensure that they are meaningful as otherwise you will distract learners from key messages.

Why Change Management Fails | Psychology Today | Diigo

Louise Lewis's insight:

The sponsorship model is critical to successful change.  When a project is a new shiny object, it is easy to maintain attention of the sponsor coalition but as time goes by that attention is harder to maintain.  A sound communication plan for the coalition of sponsors is required but in some circumstances that too doesn't work as the coalition may be more concerned with other things.  Sometimes resorting to door-knocking is all that you have left.  Time consuming? Yes but the alternative is to lose project momentum and as a result, failure.

Professors argue for a new online learning model in Teaching Crowds book

Professors argue for a new online learning model in Teaching Crowds book | Cloud-based Learning | Scoop.it
Dron and Anderson propose a number of changes to traditional education — changes that make room for the expanded possibilities that online crowds and networked learning provide. Some of these changes include:

offering courses of variable length
using competency-based assessment tools instead of end-of-term exams
dissolving the boundaries between disciplines

The goal, as the authors write in the final chapter of their book, is to “provide methods of learning that are fitted to the subject and people learning them, not the needs and capabilities of institutions teaching them. This is what (networked learning) allows.”

"Learning with digital technologies in Australian schools: a summary" by Gerry K. White

"Learning with digital technologies in Australian schools: a summary" by Gerry K. White | Cloud-based Learning | Scoop.it
The last two years (2012- 2014) in Australia have seen many changes in national Australian education policy in relation to learning with digital technologies. Although the Federal national government provides the funding and much of the coordination of education in Australia, the State Government jurisdictions are directly responsible for the delivery of education. From time to time, this situation can lead to Federal/State tensions in education.
