Coursera Announces Professional Development Courses to Facilitate Lifelong Learning for Teachers

Coursera Announces Professional Development Courses to Facilitate Lifelong Learning for Teachers | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

By Julia Stiglitz

 

"Today we are extremely pleased to announce the launch of a teacher professional development category on Coursera. We believe that helping teachers improve their skills is an important contribution that we can make to the education of students everywhere. We are truly excited about the possibilities that having these courses available for free online, to be used independently or in a blended learning capacity, will open up for teachers, schools, and districts. 

"Seven leading schools of education have joined this initiative, including the College of Education, University of Washington; Curry School of Education, University of Virginia; Johns Hopkins University School of Education; Match Education’s Sposato Graduate School of Education; Peabody College of Education and Human Development, Vanderbilt University; Relay Graduate School of Education; and University of California, Irvine Extension.

"Additionally, we welcome a new network of educational institutions and museums, including the American Museum of Natural History; The Commonwealth Education Trust; Exploratorium; The Museum of Modern Art; and New Teacher Center.

"There are too many courses that I am genuinely excited about to list in this post. Here’s just a taste of them: "

Η νοημοσύνη δεν είναι μία... αλλά 8! Ποια διαθέτει το παιδί σας;

Δεν υπάρχει μόνον ένα αλλά πολλά είδη νοημοσύνης. Και όπως δεν μπορούμε να βρούμε δύο ανθρώπους με πανομοιότυπα δακτυλικά αποτυπώματα, έτσι δεν μπορούμε να βρούμε και δύο ανθρώπους με τον ίδιο συνδυασμό απ αυτά τα είδη νοημοσύνης!

Η πληροφορική είναι η λύση για την άνοια; Όλα τα αποτελέσματα έρευνας του ΑΠΘ | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

Το νέο “φάρμακο” κατά της άνοιας, φαίνεται αποτελούν οι σύγχρονες τεχνολογίες της πληροφορικής, κρίνοντας από τα αποτελέσματα που παρουσιάζει, στα δύο χρόνια πιλοτικής λειτουργίας το σύστημα LLMCare, αποτέλεσμα του ερευνητικού έργου «Μνήμες Διάρκειας» (Long Lasting Memories – LLM).

Aris P. Louvris's curator insight, July 17, 11:13 PM

Διαβάζω στο σχετικό ΔΤ ότι το κόστος για την αντιμετώπιση της άνοιας κάθε χρόνο αυξάνεται δραματικά, ώστε να απειλεί με χρεοκοπία τα εθνικά συστήματα υγείας (δημόσια και ιδιωτικά). Στην Ευρωπαϊκή Ένωση, η νόσος Alzheimer απορροφά αυτή τη στιγμή το 25% του συνόλου των δαπανών για την υγεία!

Interactive White Boards in Preschool and Primary Education
Γιώργος Παπαναστασίου's insight:

Technologies within the domain of interactive, remote and on line science which are extensively adopted in education’s everyday life are interactive whiteboards and related applications. Interactive whiteboards indicate positive effects on students’ learning and instructors' teaching, promoting whole class teaching. In this review-paper we cope with the studies that explore the integration of IWBs in preschool and primary education in the last decade (2004-2013). Research has shown that interactive whiteboards are able to keep students involved and foster their attention in every aspect of the curriculum, much easier than without it. This technology has proven its value added to students and teachers in different facets of teaching and learning, in literacy, in mathematics, in science, in physics, its impact on English Language Learners, on relations and learning, on the use of IWBs by kindergartners, professional development of teachers, pedagogical orchestration, classroom dialogue and pedagogic practice.

How gamification is used in eLearning

How gamification is used in eLearning | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

Gamification is a popular term at the moment and it can be seen in numerous and diverse applications. The simplest definition of gamification is that its approach is to add typical elements of game playing (point scoring, competition with others, rules of play) to other areas of activity. It can often be seen in online marketing techniques and approaches, as it encourages engagement with a particular product or service.

 

Gamification has marked benefits as it allows a business to meet its staff in a setting that they understand and with clear actionable objectives. In the field of elearning gamification becomes increasingly useful and it aids learning and information retention.
