5 Reasons We Use Social Media - Edudemic

5 Reasons We Use Social Media - Edudemic | Connecting with technology | Scoop.it
There are many reasons we use social media. From the basic to the more advanced, the tool is simply ubiquitous and addictive. This infographic sheds some light for us all.
Catherine Smyth's insight:

The dizzying array of social media tools can be overwhelming. My favourites for teaching and building a professional community are Scoop.it and Twitter. I love Scoop.it because of its accessilbity and how I can connect with people all over the world. The influence of social media is incredible as the statistics on the graphic on this blog show and as educators, we need to think about the implications of this for teaching and learning.

Audrey Watters Techno-badgering | Connecting with technology | Scoop.it
Catherine Smyth's insight:

Interesting, provocative ideas about the future of learning.

Check out Hack Education created by Audrey Watters. She explains:

To “hack” can mean a lot of things: To break in and break down. To cut to the core.  To chop roughly. To be playful and clever. To be mediocre. To solve a problem, but to do so rather inelegantly. To pull systems apart.  To "MacGyver" things back together. To re-code. To rebuild. To “Hack Education,” in turn, has multiple interpretations: a technological solution, a technology intrusion, a technological possibility, a technological disaster.

如何策展你所阅读的任何内容的简单学习过程:看奈尔笔记方法。

康奈尔笔记法将笔记本分为三栏:大区域的主栏、条目栏(线索栏)、总结栏。

记笔记方法为”5R's”法:

1.Record- 在主栏中,尽可能多地记录一些重要事实、思想、概念等。

2.Reduce,归纳- 在线索栏,将这些事实,思想和概念归纳概括为一个词汇、或一句短话。

3.Recite,背诵 - 利用线索栏的提示,尽可能全面、而非机械地,用你自己的语言复述你所记录的主栏中有关讲座内容的事实、思想,然后对照笔记确认你所讲的。

4.Reflect,反思 - 思考这些材料与课程、单元/被讨论的科目之间的关系,这部分内容卸载总结栏。

5.Review,总结 - 每周花10分钟快速回顾你的笔记,你将会记住你所学习的大部分内容。

The Higher Education and K-12 Conversation | Profession | HYBRID PEDAGOGY

The Higher Education and K-12 Conversation | Profession | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | Connecting with technology | Scoop.it

by Karen Young

 

When we think about K-12 and higher education, educators think of them as two separate entities. Within K-12, we divide it further; primary, junior, intermediate, and senior. These artificial silos create barriers to sharing professionally about the biggest questions in education: how do students learn and what is learning? How do we recognize learning when we see it? Through a series of multiple choice tests or through the creation of a product? Is our job still to stuff into our students’ heads as much content as possible, or is it to help students learn how to plan and then create? The education system at all levels is being radically changed by social media, and the artificial barriers we’ve constructed over time are shifting, perhaps eventually to disappear.
