Online learning: Pessimism, optimism and realism

Online learning: Pessimism, optimism and realism | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
However, the way we think about online learning is inadequate. Attitudes generally fall into one of two prevailing camps: online learning optimism and pessimism. Both sides are entrenched in meaningless, largely unproductive opposition, perhaps because both perspectives talk past one another in advancing valid points.

Optimists see online learning as inevitable, driven by demand for greater efficiency. Pessimists see institutions abusing government programs and uninformed consumers to maximize profits while undermining or even mocking quality of learning outcomes as a concept.

Within this polarized mix of ideas rests an underappreciated but important third perspective: online learning realism.

Cindy Riley Klages's insight:

As a veteran facilitator of professional learning in both f2f and online environments, I see that they are both needed and both effective when the teacher/administrator is committed to the learning/course.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, September 28, 12:16 PM

I've been part deeply involved with online teaching and learning since before the turn of the century. While I understand the pessimistic viewpoint,  I've been an optimist and a realist from day one.

One Lesson at a Time: 10 Rhetorical Questions to Stop Using in the Classroom | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
A little over a year ago, I got caught in my own question. 
"So, you're going to stay here while the rest of us go to lunch?" I asked a little nugget who was parked underneath a table, refusing to move. 
"YES."
Well. Shoot.

Students at about the fifth grade and older find protocols an especially fascinating way to learn, especially as they come to appreciate the value of silence!

On-the-Spot Scaffolding for Students

On-the-Spot Scaffolding for Students | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
On-the-spot scaffolding and differentiating are essential skills for teachers. And the longer you teach, the better you become at both. Here are three scaffolding strategies to try immediately.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, September 30, 3:29 PM

"Just to be clear: Scaffolding a lesson and differentiating instruction are two different things. Scaffolding is breaking up the learning into chunks and then providing a tool, or structure, with each chunk. When scaffolding reading, for example, you might preview the text and discuss key vocabulary, or chunk the text and read and stop and discuss as you go. With differentiation, you may give a child an entirely different piece of text to read, you might shorten the text or alter it, and you may modify the writing assignment that follows."
