How Serious Games Fit With Blooms Taxonomy

How Serious Games Fit With Blooms Taxonomy | (e)Books and (e)Resources for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it
Blooms Taxonomy was developed in 1956 and was used to help classify the difficulty associated with questions asked during assessments, ultimately being transformed into a “system” for classifying various learning outcomes. But how do serious games tie in with Blooms Taxonomy?

An Unholy Trio: The Three Biggest Roadblocks to Innovation in Higher Education

An Unholy Trio: The Three Biggest Roadblocks to Innovation in Higher Education | (e)Books and (e)Resources for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it

I’ll assume that innovation in higher ed centers on two factors which are the subject of considerable discussion: technology related to online teaching, and flipped classrooms. Higher ed in general hasn’t progressed far beyond offering classic lectures using chalk and paper handouts, so both technology and class design are easy targets. It’s also convenient that roadblocks often apply to both of these issues.

Open education is a philosophy about the way people should produce, share, and build on knowledge.

Proponents of open education believe everyone in the world should have access to high-quality educational experiences and resources, and they work to eliminate barriers to this goal. Such barriers might include high monetary costs, outdated or obsolete materials, and legal mechanisms that prevent collaboration among scholars and educators.

Daniel Tan's insight:

some good ideas to minimise (not prevent) cheating during old paradigms in new digital world. Perhaps the key is outside the box?

 

If we follow traditional modes of assessment, then we would place ourselves up against a strong tradition of possible cheating. Perhaps the solution is to relook at the modes of assessment, and explore new modes with education 3.0 foundations.

MIT Report: Higher Education should adopt iTunes model, offer individual modules & individualized curricula

[PDF]


Via ғelιх c ѕeyғarтн, Kim Flintoff

ғelιх c ѕeyғarтн's curator insight, August 17, 5:24 AM

As MIT sees it, education is a lot like the record business used to be: still producing albums, when  people would rather download songs one at a time. To put it another way, instead of offering semester-long classes, professors need to start offering individual lessons and letting students pick which ones they want.

“The very notion of a ‘class’ may be outdated,” says a new report from an MIT task force on the future of the school. “Much like a playlist on iTunes, a student could pick and choose the elements of a calculus or a biology course offered across [MIT’s online platform] to meet his or her needs.”  The report notes that 25 percent of professors and 40 percent of students believe classes could benefit from this “modular” approach.

MIT is not the only school thinking this way.  The University of Wisconsin began offering MOOCs this year that offer shorter, more narrowly focused segments.

Also recommended by the MIT task force:

Continue to expand online and blended-learning options.Expand the school’s certification program for online courses.Develop ways to use game-based learning in classes.Attract a more diverse group of students to MOOCs– more than 70 percent are male.Make the school more affordable.Admit more students. (Summary by Dan Abendschein, http://www.marketplace.org/topics/education/learningcurve/making-online-education-more-itunes)

Research: How Video Production Affects Student Engagement

edX recently commissioned a study of nearly 1,000 videos, segmenting them out by by video type and production style, and discovered this among their other findings:

Shorter videos are more engaging. Engagement drops after 6 minutes.Videos with a more personal feeling are more effective than high-fidelity studio recordings.
Videos in which the instructor speaks quickly and with high enthusiasm are more engaging.Khan-style tablet drawings are more engaging than power point slides.

About The Open Education Consortium | The Open Education Consortium | (e)Books and (e)Resources for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it

About The Open Education Consortium

The Open Education Consortium is a worldwide community of hundreds of higher education institutions and associated organizations committed to advancing open education and its impact on global education.  We envision a world where everyone, everywhere has access to the education they need to build their futures.  We seek to instill openness as a feature of education around the world, allowing greatly expanded access to education while providing a shared body of knowledge upon which innovative and effective approaches to today’s social problems can be built. The Open Education Consortium realizes change by leveraging its sources of expert opinion, its global network and its position as the principal voice of open education.

What is Open Education?

Open education encompasses resources, tools and practices that employ a framework of open sharing to improve educational access and effectiveness worldwide.

Open Education combines the traditions of knowledge sharing and creation with 21st century technology to create a vast pool of openly shared educational resources, while harnessing today’s collaborative spirit to develop educational approaches that are more responsive to learner’s needs.

The idea of free and open sharing in education is not new.  In fact, sharing is probably the most basic characteristic of education: education is sharing knowledge, insights and information with others, upon which new knowledge, skills, ideas and understanding can be built.  Open Education seeks to scale educational opportunities by taking advantage of the power of the internet, allowing rapid and essentially free dissemination, and enabling people around the world to access knowledge, connect and collaborate. Open is key; open allows not just access, but the ability to modify and use materials, information and networks so education can be personalized to individual users or woven together in new ways for large and diverse audiences.
