Blended Learning: 10 Trends

Blended Learning: 10 Trends | Digital education | Scoop.it

There is mounting evidence that complementing or replacing lectures with student-centric, technology-enabled active learning strategies and learning guidance—rather than memorization and repetition—improves learning, supports knowledge retention, and raises achievement. These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards.

Great Video Tutorials on Flipped Classroom

Great Video Tutorials on Flipped Classroom | Digital education | Scoop.it

So you have decided to flip your classroom this year and invert your instruction method hoping to get more student engagement and boost their productivity levels. Well good thing you are going to give Flipped Classroom a try but before that you need to make it clear to your students what this new method is all about and why not even explain it to their parents as well.

I like the videos. They are short and explain the concept rather well.

The videos are clear explaining the concept of a flipped classroom. I wonder whether this should be used on a more regular basis in school to address different needs of students.

50 Inspiring TED Talks For Teachers: Updated For 2014

by Sara Briggs


"The communication explosion reaches its peak when you explore the endless avenues running through TED Talks. Moreover, the title educator embodies many forms within these talks.


So it’s precisely for this reason that any educator benefits from so many of these talks. Each speaker reveals his or her passion of a view or a subject with the enthusiasm of a first-year teacher."

The communication explosion reaches its peak when you explore the endless avenues running through TED Talks. Moreover, the title educator embodies many forms within these talks.

So it’s precisely for this reason that any educator benefits from so many of these talks. Each speaker reveals his or her passion of a view or a subject with the enthusiasm of a first-year teacher.

Using TED Talks to convey an important message or spark creativity might be more effective in teaching students than an individual agenda or preconceived notion of what should be said. Furthermore, TED Talks challenges educators everywhere to think differently and encourage the same in their students.

These are the best TED Talks for any educator because they make us laugh, warm our hearts, break down barriers, and always inspire us to dig a little deeper and push a little harder, challenging your educator perspective.

Engaging the students in the learning process when emerging the technology in the classroom is very essential. The teachers are trying to find the useful digital tools to use in their classrooms. I liked the listing and explanation of some of these digital tools as video conferencing programs like Skype and iChat, Digital Geography like Google Earth, Podcasts, Video streaming, Real time analysis (can be produced from your school website), Interactive education games ( the new trend Gamification ),  and Multimedia presentations like songs, video clips, PowerPoint presentations, short animations, and high-resolution photographs are great ways to get students engaged with classroom material.

With the fast advancement of digital technology in education. Though the implementation and execution have always been under inspection, some have come up with interesting experimental solutions as Salman Khan in The One World Schoolhouse, and the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCS) systems. You can find their details and other information in this article:How people are using e-learning and crowd learning to change education  http://memeburn.com/2012/10/how-people-are-using-e-learning-and-crowdlearning-to-change-education/

Each year, IBM releases a list of five innovations that it believes have the potential to change the way people work, live, and interact during the next five years. This year, the IBM researchers working on the “5 in 5” listing focus on the notion that in the future, everything will learn. 

 

According to IBM: “Driven by a new era of cognitive systems where machines will learn, reason, and engage with us in a more natural and personalized way. These innovations are beginning to emerge enabled by cloud computing, big data analytics, and learning technologies all coming together.”

How Estonia became E-stonia | Digital education | Scoop.it

In some countries, computer programming might be seen as the realm of the nerd.

 

But not in Estonia, where it is seen as fun, simple and cool.

This northernmost of the three Baltic states, a small corner of the Soviet Union until 1991, is now one of the most internet-dependent countries in the world.

 

And Estonian schools are teaching children as young as seven how to programme computers.
