MOOC Verses DOCC | Open Research & Learning

MOOC Verses DOCC | Open Research & Learning | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

'It was only a matter of time before massive open online courses (MOOC) were challenged to see online learning in a new light. Distributed Open Collaborative Course (DOCC) has a different approach to how students should learn through online education and the role of the instructor. Where MOOCs facilitated the traditional sense of teaching, having one instructor who values the topic they teach. DOCC has expanded this idea to include many instructors, experts, and guest lecturers from various regions to teach the students.

 

The belief for DOCC is that it takes more than one instructor on a subject for students to truly learn a topic. DOCC focuses on interaction between students, teachers, and peers to expand on their topic, while learning from one another is the vital component. Anne Balsamo, dean of the School of Media Studies at The New School and co-facilitator of the DOCC, said “who you learn with is as important as what you learn. Learning is a relationship, not just something that can be measured by outcomes or formal metrics.”" - From /source - http://proctorfree.com/mooc-verses-dooc

Future Trends in Technology and Education

Future Trends in Technology and Education | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"Future Trends in Technology and Education is a monthly report. It surveys recent developments in how education is changing, primarily under the impact of digital technologies. Its purpose is to help educators, policy-makers, and the public think about the future of teaching, learning, research, and institutions.

 

Every month FTTE aggregates recent developments, checking them against previously-identified trendlines. As certain trends build in support and significance, the report recommends watching them for future impact. FTTE also notes trends which appear to be declining in significance."

Bryan Alexander is not only one of the leading Thought Leaders of Technology for Education, Training, and Research; he is one of the most scholarly, well grounded, sharing people I know. His work is based on fact with a dab of opinion from others as well as himself. His eyes, ears, and haptic senses are sensitive to opportunities and trends. Bryan's voice asks the difficult but important questions. Then his synthesis of this input is shared openly with us. He is an essential part of the future. That is why you should quickly take advantage of his offer to share his new monthly report "Future Trends in Technology and Education."

Rosie Peel's curator insight, June 8, 2013 3:07 AM

This is very insightful when creating an effective, authentic and reliable curation collection.  It is resources like this one that I feel will benefit others in their teaching and learning journey.

Dorothy Minor's curator insight, July 8, 2013 3:29 PM

This infographic provides insight into showing how to enhance learning. Critical thinking is an important skill in today's world. Students need encouragement in taking ownership of their own learning. We can find ways to encourage students from this link.

"Open Access" By Peter Suber

"Open Access" By Peter Suber | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"Open Access - By Peter Suber 

 

NOW AVAILABLE IN MULTIPLE OPEN ACCESS FORMATS

 

... The Internet lets us share perfect copies of our work with a worldwide audience at virtually no cost. We take advantage of this revolutionary opportunity when we make our work “open access”: digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. Open access is made possible by the Internet and copyright-holder consent, and many authors, musicians, filmmakers, and other creators who depend on royalties are understandably unwilling to give their consent. But for 350 years, scholars have written peer-reviewed journal articles for impact, not for money, and are free to consent to open access without losing revenue.

 

In this concise introduction, Peter Suber tells us what open access is and isn’t, how it benefits authors and readers of research, how we pay for it, how it avoids copyright problems, how it has moved from the periphery to the mainstream, and what its future may hold. Distilling a decade of Suber’s influential writing and thinking about open access, this is the indispensable book on the subject for researchers, librarians, administrators, funders, publishers, and policy makers."

ghbrett's insight:

Peter Suber has been a driving force in the rapidly growing area(s) of Open Access. Rather than cite this or that have a look at his info at Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Suber  Here is a wonderful resource for anyone who uses Internet resources. Get a copy for a eBook-Reader, a computer, or your Boss, but don't forget yourself. Then Read it and then keep as a handy reference resource.

A Great iPad Manual for Every Teacher ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Great iPad Manual for Every Teacher ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"A few weeks ago I posted here a poster on iPad basics which many of you have downloaded to use with their students in the class. Today, I am sharing with you another great resource on iPad. This is not a graphic but a quick reference card on everything you and your students need to know about iPad. From the hardware to networking features , this little manual can serve as a leading guide to a better manipulation of your iPad.

 

I am not sure how much iPading you are doing in your classroom but whether you use iPad just occasionally or you adopt it as a consistent learning and teaching tool, the reference card below will definitely give you a hand in improving your iPad use. I suggest that you share it with your students and go through it with them section by section and make sure they understand it before they start using their iPads again." from source: http://www.educatorstechnology.com

This article includes a link to a PDF of a two sided letter size document that is a very handy, quick reference to the iPad for beginners, novices, and even long time users who may have not used certain features for a while.

Don't Confuse Technology With Teaching

The Chronicle of Higher Education

Commentary - Aug 13, 2012 - Pamela Hieronymi

 

  "Education is not the transmission of information or ideas. Education is the training needed to make use of information and ideas. As information breaks loose from bookstores and libraries and floods onto computers and mobile devices, that training becomes more important, not less.

  Educators are coaches, personal trainers in intellectual fitness. The value we add to the media extravaganza is like the value the trainer adds to the gym or the coach adds to the equipment. We provide individualized instruction in how to evaluate and make use of information and ideas, teaching people how to think for themselves." - from the source
