Kiruthika Ragupathi's curator insight, August 25, 2013 7:36 PM

a good read, when you want to embark on designing a MOOC.

Kiruthika Ragupathi's curator insight, August 25, 2013 7:37 PM

 

The debate around Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) is much more focused on the social, institutional, technological and economical aspects than on the need for development of new pedagogical approaches that provide consistent guidance on how to design for this emergent educational scenario. A new understanding of knowledge production and learning challenges the core of learning design, demanding innovative and appropriate approaches to teaching and learning.

 

 

Sharrock's curator insight, August 29, 2013 10:27 AM

This insight is powerful: 

Ana Cristina Pratas's insight:

"The debate around Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) is much more focused on the social, institutional, technological and economical aspects than on the need for development of new pedagogical approaches that provide consistent guidance on how to design for this emergent educational scenario.

 

A new understanding of knowledge production and learning challenges the core of learning design, demanding innovative and appropriate approaches to teaching and learning. We present a set of learning design principles drawn from the learner’s perspective. They focus on empowering learners in networked environments for fostering critical thinking and collaboration, developing competence based outcomes, encouraging peer assistance and assessment through social appraisal, providing strategies and tools for self-regulation, and finally using a variety of media and ICTs to create and publish learning resources and outputs."

A useful video tutorial here, just over 16 minutes long. It runs through the basics of using Google drive and how you can use it to collaborate with others. It also touches on Google Hangout.

 

I use Google Drive with my students as a writing space because I teach English via Skype. It suits our needs perfectly. Students create several folders e.g. some are homework spaces; collaborative areas such as wikis; creative writing pages and as a virtual space that we can jump into during the lesson to work on activities. It works for us. As a teacher I can dip into shared spaces at any time and guide and support learning which is a real advantage.

flea palmer's curator insight, August 30, 2013 6:56 AM

This is a really thorough tutorial and very timely as I'm currently exploring using Google Drive with students. Our dispersed team of Learning Technologists already use it for collaboration but there is not much use as yet by our academics and students. The ability to be able to integrate Drive with Google Hangouts is really powerful and has the potential to be a great tool for supporting Distance Learning.

Edutopia Resource Guide: Mastering Online Discussion Board Facilitation

Discussion boards, or threaded discussions, are one of the most commonly used tools in online teaching. Discussion  forums provide the ability for asynchronous discussion to occur over a period of time. The ability to learn asynchronously is one of the primary benefits of online learning. Students are able to reflect upon their ideas before sharing
them with the class, leading to more reflective responses and in-depth learning.
T

his guide has been designed to provide some practical suggestions to assist you in making the most of this versatile tool. A number of topics have been addressed, including: facilitation tips, content area suggestions, time
management strategies and much more.

Test and Assess – be a curator!

Test and Assess – be a curator! | creating online classes | Scoop.it
A key component to this process, which is tied directly into active assessment strategies, is synthesizing or making sense of the information gathered. Sense making can be writing a blog post using the links (like this post) or summarizing the key points in a presentation. Gathering and collecting specific content points is the beginning, and creating the theme is where an individual demonstrates their analysis and evaluation of the content included in a post or presentation shared. Kanter wrote, “Content curation is not about collecting links or being an information pack rat, it is more about putting them into a context with organization, annotation, and presentation.”

This article will help you understand how curating relates to both Bloom's taxonomy and the Engagement Pyramid proposed by Charlene Li and Jeremiah Owyang.


For those who must plan to standards, this article will give you great theoretical backing for teaching and using curation in your classroom. 


Bronwyn Desjardins's curator insight, December 27, 2012 5:19 PM

I agree. Education used to be about finding the information. With potential access to everything now, the focus should be on making sense of it and finding connections, drawing correlations and making conclusions - to become thinkers.

As the technology grows more availalbe, the Flipped Learning Model offers some very intersting potential related to :Bring Your Own Device.  While in the process of solving a problem, a student can access the content material on a tablet, school computer or the student's own smart phone, right there in class.  This keeps it fresh and present when needed.

No Longer a Luxury: Digital Literacy Can’t Wait

Digital literacy is about more than just adding technology into the teaching we already do. The following common teaching practices that we have seen in classrooms as researchers and as parents of school-age children do not help develop digital literacy and may even kill students’ motivation to develop their savvy use of technology and the Internet. We must stop these practices. Immediately.

Bonnie I agree parents are important today so many seem to be tuned out to the needs of there children, it is a lot more than just material needs, that parents need to provide, and with the prevalence of single parent homes, it is even harder. I feel as much for the parent of these homes as I do for the children it can not be easy wearing all the hats.
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's comment, September 4, 2013 4:12 PM
I have long hours of work in places where the parents did not or would not participate. Sometimes they did not know. Some groups like Wired Safety , have Mom groups.. or PTA groups. Thanks for your comment.

"Why didn't anyone tell me about this?": What every learning technologist should know about accessible documents #ALTC2012 | creating online classes | Scoop.it
The title of this presentation is a composite of the many responses we receive when we deliver training on accessible documents to teachers as part of the Load2Learn project, an online collection of downloadable curriculum resources in accessible formats. Teachers are chagrined that none of their learning technology support or training staff ever made them aware of these accessibility tips.
