Carlos Fosca's curator insight, September 10, 6:47 PM

Interesantes resultados y recomendaciones que surgen de un estudio realizado a partir del análisis de la data recogida de la observación de 6.9 millones de sesiones de videos por parte de estudiantes de cuatro cursos edX y de entrevistas con equipos de producción de dichos videos. Se midió el nivel de interés (engagement) que estos videos provocaron en los estudiantes de manera indirecta a través del tiempo en que estos permanecían observando el video. Aún cuando esta no es ni siquiera una buena medida para comprender el impacto de estos contenidos multimedia en el aprendizaje de los alumnos, el estudio brinda algunas interesantes luces sobre como deben producirse estos videos para fines educativos y conseguir al menos que los estudiantes no se aburran rápidamente con ellos.

Backward Design, Forward Progress

Backward Design, Forward Progress | Tech News: Teaching, Learning and Technology | Scoop.it
First, (re)designing a course via backward design forces us to step back from our fields of expertise, which we know so well and hold so dear, and approach the learning process as novices. That is to say, we are so familiar with our disciplines and their content that it’s hard to imagine anyone not endowed with such knowledge or a burning desire to acquire it.

"I enjoy discussing iPad and other edtech resources with my colleague and friend Sylvia Duckworth almost every week through Twitter. Sylvia is a leader in the French teaching community in Canada, and has created an enormous amount of resources for language teachers to use. I asked her if she wanted to collaborate on this post, and she quickly agreed to do so. Below is a list of iPad apps that we both use in our language classrooms. The ones marked with an * are the essential, must-have ones. We have divided the list into two categories: Content consumption apps and content creation apps."
