Why Is A Virtual Classroom Better Than A Real One? - eLearning Industry

Why Is A Virtual Classroom Better Than A Real One? - eLearning Industry | Ed Tech and Instruction | Scoop.it

VThe analysis of such situations shows that effective eLearning can take the best from traditional education and even surpass it. Modern learning tools should allow instructors and students to create, edit, and comment on all presented materials. This will encourage discussion and keep everybody updated on the latest news. Webinars and instant messages in chats are especially necessary in the corporate sector, for example when new products are put on the market and the first hands-on experiences are highly valued

Arts organizations with an education mission are teaming up with classroom teachers to develop lessons that use drama, music, visual art and dance to help students understand concepts that can be abstract and complex.

8 Switches To Update Project-Based Learning In The 21st Century - @TeachThought

8 Switches To Update Project-Based Learning In The 21st Century - @TeachThought | Ed Tech and Instruction | Scoop.it
It’s beyond time for U.S. schools engaged in PBL to shift their emphasis. Rather than seeing PBL as a ‘strategy’ to meet accountability goals, educators should view PBL as a philosophical north star to guide us into the future, and to enlarge the frame for PBL by embracing key principles that will contribute to a global standard for PBL. In fact, for the health of U.S. education, as well as other systems, it’s time to rise higher, and in these dangerous, chaotic times, to define a future-version of inquiry-oriented PBL that needs to be implemented right now.  

How can U.S.-based PBL educators contribute to the global conversation? Here are eight ideas, in rough sequence.

I think assessment of student maker projects is a great idea that should be implemented. However, assessment should be for growth and generating new, better ideas, not for grades. It should be self- and peer-driven, to promote reflection and critical analysis. Makerspaces are intended to promote creativity, innovation, critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and a host of almost impossible to quantify character traits and skills.
