Moving Outside the LMS: Matching Web 2.0 Tools to Instructional Purpose | EDUCAUSE.edu

Moving Outside the LMS: Matching Web 2.0 Tools to Instructional Purpose | EDUCAUSE.edu | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

ABSTRACT:


What considerations support the decision to either augment or replace an institution’s existing learning management system (LMS) with a cloud-based, Web 2.0 technology tool to support students’ learning? The use of instructional technologies should be evaluated against a backdrop of pedagogical objectives, and students’ selection of tools to support their learning can result in a more collaborative, constructive, and authentic learning experience. Instructors must balance the benefit of introducing new technology tools into the curriculum with the additional load—for instructors (supporting the tool) and students (learning the tool).This paper describes the experiences of an online graduate program in instructional technology at Georgia Southern University (GSU) and the program faculty who have chosen to move beyond the LMS.

Excellent Tech Tools Using ThingLink | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Excellent Tech Tools Using ThingLink | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

I am one of the big fans of Thinglink and I am pretty sure some of you are using it too. ThingLink has a huge educational potential and teachers and educators can use it in a variety of ways. By definition, ThingLink is a web tool that allows users to tag images and add links, videos, text, notes and many more. The tagging is very simple and easy to use and best of all free of any charge. Here is a short video tutorial to learn how to use ThingLink.

Now here are some samples of what you can do with ThingLink. Our colleague Susan Oxnevad  ( a fabulous techy girl ) has created some awesome interactive Launchers for teaching Tech Tools. The interactive images below have embedded links to other resources, hover your mouse over them and click to access those resources. Enjoy

Jim Lerman's curator insight, February 2, 2013 11:50 AM

Much like dropping pins on a Google Map, with Taggstar you can insert little stars into any image you wish. (See the small stars in the blue circles on the image above. This is just a sample image to show what the stars look like, they are not functional here. If you want to see a demo, click on the image and go to the Taggstar website)

 

When clicked, the stars lead visitors to any content you select -- another image, a video, a website, a document. This is a great way to make your images serve as portals to a world of information.

 

It's also a great alternative way to make a presentation...better than Prezi IMO.

10 Tools to Get Started with Blended Learning | Democratizing Knowledge

10 Tools to Get Started with Blended Learning | Democratizing Knowledge | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

MIKE GWALTNEY:


I’m often asked by teachers how to get started doing Blended Learning. My answer is always “why do you want to try Blended Learning?” Rather than trying to be cheeky or coy about my practice, I’m trying to begin a conversation about the value of moving learning online. If you haven’t determined why you’re doing it, your attempts will be unfocused and confusing for students. So my suggestion is that you consider your goals – what I refer to as the “verbs” (connect, network, collaborate, cooperate, create, etc.) – and then create the Blended Learning experiences that fit.

10 Tips For An Effective Global Collaboration - Edudemic

10 Tips For An Effective Global Collaboration - Edudemic | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

This post was co-authored by Danielle Hartman, English/Literacy Specialist, Technology Integration teacher, Burlington County Institute of Technology, NJ, USA @danielle6849and Miriam Orlando, ESL teacher and teacher trainer, Liceo Celio-Roccati, Rovigo, Italy, EU @miriam2065


Creating an effective global collaboration isn't easy. But once you master these quick tips, you'll be ready and itching to collaborate with many others!

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Collaboration lights the learning fires: International, national, regional... oh just get outside of the school walls!


Back in the Compuserve days I ran a 'sneaker net' collaboration between my rural middle school kids in Nevada and a high school class in Tatebashia Japan. It was one of the most dynamic experiences of my teaching career.  These days the technology is so much more transparent. I had to gather word processed letters on a disk and send them out via my home 300 baud modem on Friday nights. Now you can interact in real time. 


If you haven't tried global collaboration with your students, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

The Future Of Web 2.0 Websites (Possibly Web 3.0)

The Future Of Web 2.0 Websites (Possibly Web 3.0) | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Web 2.0 is the terminology assigned to define websites that have been refurbished from an earlier version of the internet.

 

Since most Web 2.0 features are free, websites such as Facebook, Wikipedia, etc. have developed remarkably fast and, as these sites grow, more innovative features are being added using new technologies. In fact, Web 2.0 will continue to grow in the future. 

 

The simultaneous growth of these new trends is outside the scope of Web 2.0’s definition and this is where the next generation of the internet will begin. The third generation of the internet – the Web 3.0 – will completely alter social networking.

 

‘Web 3.0’ is a network of information that can be routed both directly or indirectly using computers and includes television quality video, three dimensional reproductions of images, enhanced reality, man-made semantic barometers, and the all-encompassing sensors – wireless and broadband.

Liveti Liiveti's curator insight, March 14, 2013 10:30 PM

With the evergrowing usage of social networking and video sharing mediums by contemporary society, it was inevitable that such an idea as Web 3.0 would be brought up. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. have some form of impact on everyone's daily lives. I myself constantly check my Facebook news feed, sadly even once every 5 minutes. This article states that the idea of Web 3.0 'will completely alter social networking', this is something that I will anxiously await to see. How will the general public react to such alterations? Will it be too much of a jump?

 

Facebook changes, such as the conversion from profile views to timelines (http://mashable.com/2012/02/07/dislike-facebook-timeline/) and the introduction of Graph Search (http://maximizesocialmedia.com/social-media-agencygraph-it-facebooks-graph-search-the-future-of-social-media), have been met with some very negative reviews. Many have panned these changes as they have been so accustomed to previous versions.

 

Web 3.0 will completely alter social networking, but is that a good thing?

 

 

Adam Woodbridge's curator insight, March 27, 2:55 AM

As computers and software progress, so does the internet. Millions of people use the internet everyday and it has to be improved constantly. Web 3.0 is the next level of internet which will be a greater tool than Web 2.0 is at gathering and producing information, and connecting people. 

Derek Phillips's curator insight, March 28, 6:44 AM

Due to the web rapidly grows in both users and content, it has, for many people, become a part of everyday life, whether it be in the workplace or for personal use. As a result of this, it is essential to improve the capability and resources available publicly through the web. This is being done within Web 3.0.

It’s risky to talk about wikis as if they’re all the same. In practice, the term wiki (derived from the Hawaiian word for "quick") is applied to a diverse set of systems, features, approaches, and projects. Even dedicated wikiheads engage in perpetual arguments about what constitutes true wikiness. But some fundamental principles (usually) apply.2

Teachers are charged with the very important task of educating our children. They act as facilitators or coaches to help students learn and apply important concepts. Many teachers, especially at the primary level, use a hands-on approach to help students understand abstract concepts, solve problems, and develop critical thinking skills. Each year, more and more blogs and websites pop up, where teachers share their expertise and ideas with other teachers.

How Did Howard Rheingold Get So “Net Smart”: An Interview (Part One) | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

By Henry Jenkins


Howard Rheingold has been one of the smartest, most forward thinking, most provocative writers about digital culture for the past several decades. He’s someone who always makes me think. Even a short hall way chat with Howard at a conference can lead to transformative insights about how we live within a networked culture. I have been lucky to know him for more than two decades now, and I treasure every interaction I’ve ever had with the guy.


Your progression from work on virtual communities to smart mobs to digital literacies says something about the evolution of digital culture over the past few decades. What has led you right now to focus so much on giving everyday people the skills they need to more meaningfully participate in the new media landscape?
