HJJP's curator insight, August 20, 2014 11:16 PM

Single source education has never been very effective, I still remember those days of pure memorization. I was fortunate enough to have relatives that always asked me about what I learned... and they were not interested in me reciting the facts, they were interested in me telling them what I thought, how it impacted my life or those of others.... When I answered them, and they were happy with my answers, I actually got to understand what I had memorized, and certainly got to master the information in a more meaningful way.... It did not always help with getting excellent grades in exams, but I still accurately remember concepts I learned in 3rd grade.... I feel blended learning is the only way of teaching.... this will allow students to understand and implement complex concepts, catapulting them into much high learning than what we experienced 50 years ago.... or 40... or 30... even 20 or in many classrooms, a couple of days ago....

 

Hope to see many teachers utilizing these sort of blended learning... Current technology makes it so much easier...

Why did my satirical article about racism lead to me being banned from Facebook?

Why did my satirical article about racism lead to me being banned from Facebook? | Digital Literacies information sources | Scoop.it
A few weeks ago, when the computer AlphaGo beat the (human) Go world champion, some of the more sensationalist media commentators asked whether one day computers would overtake humans entirely, and perhaps even enslave us. I remember standing in the kitchen of my flat, laughing at the sci-fi absurdity of this idea - little suspecting that within days I would be wondering whether the Algorithmic Tyranny was already underway, and whether free and open political discussion had already become its victim.

Are we innovation ready?

Fiona Harvey's insight:

An interesting position paper from San Jose State, not sure of the date but I'm guessing 2013/14 because of the Mooc references.  This does have relevancy in UK, not the Moocs but the concepts behind readying universities in changing to meet the needs of society.  In particular the references to styles of learning and delivery. UK quality assurance processes ensure that what we do with new technologies and processes should mean that we enhanc existing practices.  Worth a read for ideas on how to adapt to your country context.

UCISA Social Media Toolkit - a practical guide for achieving benefits and managing risk

This Toolkit stems from growing interest in the use of social media within the UCISA community. With institutional stakeholders looking increasingly to their information services departments for support in this area, our members sought a reference guide to help them answer a range of questions on related topics. More than that, however, they were seeking practical, contextual examples of use that would inspire others within their institution to take advantage of the affordances of a set of tools that offer new forms of engagement and ways to enhance many aspects of everyday business practice. We would like to thank the numerous UCISA colleagues, and others within the wider higher education community, who have contributed to the production of this Toolkit by providing examples and reviewing content. We hope the examples given here will encourage many more of you to try new approaches to supporting core university functions via social media tools.

Fiona Harvey's insight:

Great new resource with clear sections and useful information.  It was very nice of them to acknowledge everyones contributions.

Fiona Harvey's insight:

Great set of tips for those interested in using social media to gain a reputation.  Can be useful for educators as I have been at conferences where the hashtag has been trending and someone tweets something just to promote themselves with very little relevance to the proceedings. Bad form, and we all have seen through it.

U of California faculty members object to new email monitoring | Digital Literacies information sources | Scoop.it
U of California professors object to new system -- installed secretly -- to monitor emails and use of computer networks. University cites security needs and pledges to protect privacy.
Fiona Harvey's insight:

Privacy issue or security. Either way should be open and transparent the intention of the use of the monitoring - to prevent or to catch people out. Not very supportive if the latter. Prevention is better than cure.

Some good stuff here. How digital is your leadership?  Lead from the top. This report also includes benefits of digital including what employees think.  There is also a reference to moocs as being a 'new way of learning' not really.  The model we have seen proliferating isn't new, its a broadcast model.  They are right to look at it though as it could lead to change. Worth reading, not very long with useful highlights.
