How to Make Infographics Work for eLearning Courses (Tips and Tricks) | CSPEducational Technology | Scoop.it

"If you had not been living under the rock (read: away from the Internet), you know infographics are everywhere. They are on websites. They show up on whitepapers. They are in the ads. They are splashed all over newspapers. But of course, there are plenty of good reasons why content creators use infographics. These stunners are also excellent learning tools. Most human beings are visual learners. As eLearning designers, you too should tap into the immense instructional potential of infographics."

3 ways teachers can make learning more interactive

3 ways teachers can make learning more interactive | CSPEducational Technology | Scoop.it

"From gamification to crowdsourcing, improve learning with these interactive elements

Today’s students are a uniquely interactive group. Most of the 80 million Americans who are part of the millennial generation—a group that comprises the lion’s share of today’s student population—can’t remember a time when they didn’t have instant access to the internet.  Most of them grew up playing video games, and ever since they can remember, they’ve been in constant contact with friends via social media platforms and text messages. A growing number of today’s instructors also fall into this group."

Helping Learners Get The Most Out Of Online Discussions

Helping Learners Get The Most Out Of Online Discussions | CSPEducational Technology | Scoop.it

"Online discussions are the lifeblood of an online class. Without rich, ongoing discussions, learning is minimized. However, many online courses don’t help online learners understand how to post a new idea or response; the types of communications or posts that contribute to learning or share examples of good posts. As a result, online learners are often left to their own devices with many online discussions stalling or sinking to a level of mediocrity."

6 Ways to Engage Every Learner Using UDL

6 Ways to Engage Every Learner Using UDL | CSPEducational Technology | Scoop.it

"In any given classroom, there are invariably learners who simply don’t connect with what’s being taught. Lectures can be easy to tune out. A textbook can feel dense and boring to finish. Even a video can pose limitations for learners with sight or hearing difficulties. When these are the only options available, some learners are bound to fall behind without requesting special support, while others will surge ahead. Differentiation is one way to bridge this gap, and another is adapting the curriculum to suit all learners, instead of adjusting it to support the needs of each one."
