How Evernote Is Revolutionzing My Classroom - Edudemic

How Evernote Is Revolutionzing My Classroom - Edudemic | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it
The great Evernote experiment is underway in the UK. Adam Webster details how he went all-digital with the help of iPads and Evernote.
Pierre Levy's insight:

Evernote would do two of the key things I really needed – it allows my students to curate their work (which can be produced in a multitude of mediums) in an orderly, logical fashion, and, perhaps most exciting, it allowed me to observe their work as they created it, through shared notebooks. In addition to this, we have utilized other parts of the Evernote family by using Skitch and Penultimate which automatically sync drawings and handwritten notes amongst other things) straight to your main Evernote folders.

A UK teacher's experiment with a class of 22 schoolchildren using iPads and Evernote: "They have annotated poems online, created a glossary of poetic terms, a video poem of one of Hughes’ poems, an eBook of their favorite poems which they have designed and illustrated, as well as curating notes on how to begin the process of analysing poetry and examples of them having a go at the very challenging task."

Can the Maker Movement Infiltrate Mainstream Classrooms? - Mind/Shift

Can the Maker Movement Infiltrate Mainstream Classrooms? - Mind/Shift | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it


“Most of the people that I know who got into science and technology benefited from a set of informal experiences before they had much formal training,” said Dale Dougherty, editor of Make Magazine and founder of Maker Faire on KQED’s Forum program. “And I mean, like building rockets in the backyard, tinkering, playing with things. And that created the interest and motivation to pursue science.”

That spirit of play and discovery of knowledge is missing from much of formal education, Dougherty said. Students not only have no experience with making or the tools needed to build things, they’re often at a tactile deficit. “Schools haven’t changed, but the students have,” Dougherty said. “They don’t come with these experiences.”

El "Maker Movement" debe ser un elemento clave en el desarrollo de proyectos multidisciplinares en las universidades. No es posible concebir soluciones innovadoras desde la perspectiva de una sola disciplina. Aún cuando hay avances importantes en algunas universidades, "una gaviota no hace verano".

Making MOOCs Teacher-Centered, Competency-Based and Personalized

Making MOOCs Teacher-Centered, Competency-Based and Personalized | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

"Do you sometimes feel like you are out of strategies for a particular student or several students in your class even though you have tried many different instructional approaches? You are not alone. All students learn differently – and teachers work hard to meet the various needs in their classrooms. However, when I was a teacher, I didn’t feel like I was prepared to meet all of my students’ needs, nor did I feel like professional learning experiences were personalized to what I needed or how I learned most effectively. The Learning Differences MOOC for Educators addresses this gap by providing educators with rich information about students’ learning differences, while also using an online platform designed to personalize learning for educators to meet their learning needs."

Je retiens en particulier le modèle de coopétition, illustre par l'exemple du MIT, oú le plus important dans ces formes de coopétition comme celle du MIT est que tous les étudiants doivent documenter en temps réel tout ce qu’ils font. C’est la création de ce que François Taddei appelle des “écosystèmes d’apprentissage coopératif et d’innovation” : "à chaque fois que quelqu’un a appris quelque chose, quelqu’un d’autre va pouvoir apprendre cette même chose plus facilement"

University student engagement using digital curation and career goal setting

University student engagement using digital curation and career goal setting | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it
Around the world, participation rates in tertiary education are on the rise and one of the key challenges facing educators is finding ways to engage these students. We present the results of a project that assesses the impact of an engagement strategy in which a cohort of students entering their first year of university (1) establish and maintain a clear goal of their ideal future career and (2) make use of a web-based digital curation tool to research and present their findings.

Wikipedia Ranking of World Universities

We use the directed networks between articles of 24 Wikipedia language editions for producing the Wikipedia Ranking of World Universities (WRWU) using PageRank, 2DRank and CheiRank algorithms. This approach allows to incorporate various cultural views on world universities using the mathematical statistical analysis independent of cultural preferences. The Wikipedia ranking of top 100 universities provides about 60 percent overlap with the Shanghai university ranking demonstrating the reliable features of this approach. At the same time WRWU incorporates all knowledge accumulated at 24 Wikipedia editions giving stronger highlights for historically important universities leading to a different estimation of efficiency of world countries in university education. The historical development of university ranking is analyzed during ten centuries of their history.

Are You Prepared For The Future Of Social Learning? | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

"With the Internet exploding with information resources and tools for learning, teachers can be facilitators of information with a greater emphasis on explanation and critical thinking as opposed to the dissemination source. Formal learning systems have in some cases been slower to adopt this model, rightfully concerned with accuracy of material and consistency; yet with ever increasing numbers of individuals accessing information in learning environments, the necessity of these formal systems to adopt technological change is very clear."

Preparing for the digital university: a review of the history and current state of distance, blended, and online learning

Preparing for the digital university: a review of the history and current state of distance, blended, and online learning | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

The sheer scale of numbers of students led to bold proclamations of education disruption and a sector on the verge of systemic change. However, from the perspective of 2015, these statements appear increasingly erroneous as moocs have proven to be simply an additional learning opportunity instead of a direct challenge to higher education itself. Many of the issues confronting early mooc development and offerings could have been reduced if greater consideration was given to research literature in learning sciences and technology enabled learning.
