Slack: A Powerful, Private (Free) Team Tool That Educators are Adopting — Emerging Education Technologies

Slack: A Powerful, Private (Free) Team Tool That Educators are Adopting — Emerging Education Technologies | Collaborative learning with technology | Scoop.it
A few months ago I was introduced to Slack through my role as Community Administrator for the Flipped Learning Network. We started using the platform as a communication, content sharing, and engagement resource for the flipped learning community.

At first I was a little reluctant to have yet another app to deal with, but I quickly came to appreciate the powerful simplicity of the platform. A Google search made it obvious that educators are embracing the platform as well (more an that below).

Three Focusing Activities to Engage Students in the First 5 Minutes of Class

Three Focusing Activities to Engage Students in the First 5 Minutes of Class | Collaborative learning with technology | Scoop.it
When I teach workshops about designing the flipped classroom, I always encourage faculty to think carefully about the first five minutes of class. In my lesson plan template, one of the first tasks we discuss when planning in-class time is to prepare what I call a “focusing activity.”

What’s More Effective: Gamification or Game-based Learning?

What’s More Effective: Gamification or Game-based Learning? | Collaborative learning with technology | Scoop.it
The world of learning and development is changing dramatically and at long last, learning managers are discovering where the real key to success lies. It’s not about robust reporting or compliance (although they’re also pretty important) – if you want your learning programme to deliver great results, you need to focus on the people taking the learning content – the learners themselves.

Learner engagement is everything. As more and more L&D professionals realise this, the appetite for solutions that encourage engagement has increased enormously. Enter our friends gamification and game-based learning! With so many priorities vying for your attention, you probably don’t want to spend weeks and months choosing between the two approaches. You want to know which one will work better and we’re only too happy to help you out!

5 Keys to Leading Innovation - ACHIEVE - Blog

5 Keys to Leading Innovation - ACHIEVE - Blog | Collaborative learning with technology | Scoop.it
As children, my siblings and I never had a shortage of ideas, and many of them were actually implemented in some form or another.  If an idea didn’t pan out, we would move on to the next one.  Being curious and creative was natural for us.  If we had an idea, we would pursue it.  There was no second guessing, delaying of plans or meetings to determine budgets.  We simply tried things because we were curious and had the desire to create something unique.

Great innovators still embrace the curiosity of their inner child.  Their lives are not driven by fear. They still have the curiosity, courage and drive to keep exploring and pushing boundaries.
