Use TED-ED to create lessons.

Jet Houwers's curator insight, October 18, 2013 3:15 AM

Volgens Hattie (2009) leren studenten  enorm van inhoudelijke feedback van docenten, maar ook van lessen geven aan elkaar. ik ga starten met hiermee experimenteren! #mli #yam

 

BI Media Specialists's curator insight, November 1, 2013 2:10 PM
Hmmm...maybe a lesson where students create lessons? You would definitely know if students knew the material!

elearn Magazine: A Balancing Act Part II: Providing technical support before, during and after the online course

elearn Magazine: A Balancing Act Part II: Providing technical support before, during and after the online course | Digital literacy and blended learning | Scoop.it

With the recent explosion of online education enrollment; the demand for accessible, flexible, and personalized online courses; as well as educational technology software programs and the like, there is a real need for technical support as part of a learner-centered approach to online education. Learner access and engagement in the online classroom is vital to online learning and when technical barriers are present things can rapidly come to a halt.

Educators Need to be 21st Century Learners Too… | Digital literacy and blended learning | Scoop.it

We expect our children to develop these skills. We integrate these skills in our every day lessons so that our students can grow and expand their knowledge. We create spaces so that our students can create and collaborate, whether it is a physical space or a virtual space. We expect our students to be good digital citizens, using devices, programs, and tools responsibly. We want our students to ask questions and explore for answers. We expect our students to learn, grow, and then reflect on that learning.

10 principles to consider when introducing ICTs into remote, low-income educational environments

10 principles to consider when introducing ICTs into remote, low-income educational environments | Digital literacy and blended learning | Scoop.it

Technology is only a tool: No technology can fix a bad educational philosophy or compensate for bad practice. In fact, if we are going in the wrong direction, technology will get us there faster. Providing schools with hardware and software does not automatically reform teaching and improve learning. Much depends on educational practices and how ICTs are used to enhance them.

Sim, Tecnologia é apenas uma ferramenta e computadores + software não resolvem, sozinhos, nenhum dos desafios da educação no Brasil. Mas não considerar a tecnologia na busca por soluções gera outros problemas como aumentar o "digital divide". As dicas do artigo são interessantes também para a realidade brasileira.

Curation as a tool for teaching and learning

What is curation anyway, and how can it be used as a tool for student and teacher learning? This essay will investigate what curation is and the different contexts it is used in. Why is it important; who are the curators, what motivates them and what makes a great curator? What processes and tools are used for curation and what digital literacies are required for successful curation? It will conclude with an investigation into ways teachers can use curation both with and for their students and as a tool for their own professional learning and a brief look at some curation tools.
