Tony Karrer on Teaching Online Courses – 60 Great Resources

Tony Karrer on Teaching Online Courses – 60 Great Resources | digital citizenship | Scoop.it

Tony Karrer:

 

As always I do this by looking through eLearning Learning and related sites like Communities and Networks Connection.   I looked at Virtual Classroom, Distance Learning, ILT, Teaching Distance Learning.  I also did some quick searches for various kinds of things and added them into eLearning Learning (via delicious).  So together, I’ve collected a bunch of resources pretty quickly.  That said, there’s so much already out there on this – I’m at this point not quite sure what the real question was/is.  Certainly a lot of this is already findable.  I hope this is useful.  But I think the problem at this point might be something else.  Still here are 60 great resources.

50+ Tools for Differentiating Instruction Through Social Media - Edutopia

50+ Tools for Differentiating Instruction Through Social Media - Edutopia | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
Imagine a world where resources were limited to what was found in the classroom or the school closet known as the "Curriculum Materials Room." Picture a world where students wrote letters with pen and paper to communicate with other students and adults outside of the building. Due to postage costs, the teacher either sent the letters in bulk or paid for stamps out of his or her own pocket. Can you recall a time when student interests like skateboarding or video were never used as part of learning curriculum because the tools needed were either too expensive or not yet conceptualized? Do you remember a time when non-traditional learners struggled, and absenteeism meant a high likelihood of students doing poorly in school, and possibly having to retake the course?

Easily create an eBook with these 3 powerful apps - Daily Genius | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
Digital books are transforming the way students of all ages learn today. The interactive elements of digital books enhance the learning experience, making it far more informative and interesting than before. Many teachers today are embracing this new media and producing some high quality student-made eBooks in their classrooms.



One of the most fascinating ways to create an eBook is using a mobile device, particularly, an iPad. StoryKit, Book Writer, and Book Creator are 3 apps my students have used to create some highly interactive, professionally looking eBooks. All three apps are excellent examples of tools that allow students to unleash their creativity and tell their own stories.

6 Minecraft lesson ideas for your Common Core math class | eSchool News | eSchool News

6 Minecraft lesson ideas for your Common Core math class | eSchool News | eSchool News | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
Last year I taught third-grade math in a whole new way. Combining elements from the wildly popular sandbox game Minecraft, I had students thinking visually and creatively about mathematical models and theories that went way beyond a typical third-grade curriculum, transforming math class into what I like to call Mathcraft.

Why Minecraft? I could say I am using Minecraft for a number of reasons, like how I find Minecraft enhances metacognition by increasing students’ memory storage capacity. The game itself creates a relatable enjoyable experience that can be internalized and shared in a community of learners. The limitations on the working memory are minimized because the gameplay itself is an extension of our visual sketchpad. Working with students they always say, “I can see it,” and when they see it they share it.

Checking the sense of a field-report or essay prior to submission could provide insight that leads to improvements which in turn might improve grades.

 

There is some concern however about the potential loss of intellectual property created by authors who then submit draft work for analysis - there appears to be loss of entire ownership by agreeing to this sites terms and conditions.

 

A peer review might still be preferred, along with some good old fashioned proof reading..

OK  a  personal moment of levity.  Ha ha ha ha hee hee. You know i tried to reach Jaunt after they put out an open invitation for anyone with experience to call them. They did not even have the courtesyto respond!

Much like Mr Einstein and Tesla  i am man who wants to share his experience and knowledge  but it seems they are all locked up in their own little world and think that IP should remain 100 percent theirs.  There is not one part of what they have attempted to do original! They are  stumbling along a road that many others conquered long ago. They may be motivated, inspired, possibly passionate. STUDIO  Execs of LA  if you invest in these folks you are  investing in hard development and  it will still take them years to figure it out unless they just copy the proposed solutions i put forth over the years. OR you could hire me. However i think with my hard critique they will take it personally and not respond anyway!

I do like having a blog it allows me to vent my frustrations :-)

"Many of the applications for introductory program are based on the logo turtle concept.  Even at that presentation, there sometimes is a challenging entry point.  You have to understand the concept of the stage, the mathematics of location, movement, etc. before you even get started.

 

In the case of CodeMonkey, they’ve take more of a challenge / gamification approach.

 

Yes, you work directly with code instructions like STEP and TURN but they’re done in the context of solving a problem.  The video above gives a nice description of how you or your students work within the environment.

 

As with many of my obsessions with coding and Computer Science, it’s just plain fun.  Stepping back for a moment, I had to reflect on the fact that they’ve introduced the concept of coding and problem solving in a very non-threatening manner.  I was quite impressed."
