Blended Learning: Creating Awesome Online Discussions

Blended Learning: Creating Awesome Online Discussions | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Tim Robinson: If our students think that the discussion posting is useless and not at all entertaining. It likely means that it is useless and not at all entertaining. We know this because we often feel the same way when we have to make contrived discussions posts. It’s not that our jobs are about entertaining students, but we do need to do what we can do make it at least tolerable.


If we can expand our understanding of the tool to get beyond just ‘discussions’ but see it as a platform for other creative ways to explore a topic, we’ll find a much richer level of learning. We can, maybe, even have some fun with it.

UDL Guides Personalizing Learning to Meet the Common Core

UDL Guides Personalizing Learning to Meet the Common Core | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is used to design curriculum, lessons and instruction based on the diversity of the learners in their classroom.

 

How can UDL guide personalize learning to meet the Common Core?

 

When a teacher understands his/her learners through the UDL lens, he/she creates a flexible learning environment and provides opportunities for learner voice and choice. When lessons are designed using the UDL model, the lesson includes goals, methods, materials, tools, and assessments to reach and support the maximum amount of learners in the classroom.

 

Learners can use this model to help them understand how they learn best and what learning path they can take to become an independent expert learner, leveraging their natural abilities in the process. This process helps the learner create their personal learning profile that is understood by both teacher and learner.

 

The importance of this strategy is that both the teacher and the learner understand who the learner is and how they learn best. The learner and the teacher uses the UDL lens to personalize learning. So what does that look like?

 

An example of an 8th Grade unit on the Civil War serves as an example along with two students who can meet a number of CCSS when they choose and use the tools to support their learning.

Hiring Managers Rank Best and Worst Words to Use in a Resume

Hiring Managers Rank Best and Worst Words to Use in a Resume | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

CHICAGO, March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- One in six (17 percent) hiring managers spend 30 seconds or less, on average, reviewing resumes, according to a new CareerBuilder survey. A majority (68 percent) spend less than two minutes. With so little time to capture interest, even a candidate's word choice can make a difference. The nationwide sample of employers identified which commonly-used resume terms are overused or cliche and which are strong additions.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

How do you react to the top 5?


The following terms are resume turn-offs as selected by respondents:

   1. Best of breed: 38 percent
 
   2. Go-getter: 27 percent
 
   3. Think outside of the box: 26 percent
 
   4. Synergy: 22 percent
 
   5. Go-to person: 22 percent

Being a resume writer, I couldn't agree more. Catching up with those words is multitasking. However, people who write the job posting may be someone other than the hiring manager. if they put these words as priorities in the job posting the applicant must use them in the resume or it decreases their odds of being pulled by applicant tracking systems. Talk about a "Catch-22!"

Teacher quits over emphasis on standardized tests: 'It takes the joy out of learning' - TODAY.com | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

A teacher in Massachusetts who has spent more than a quarter century in the classroom is drawing attention after she quit her job over her growing frustration with the school system’s emphasis on standardized testing.


Because of “so many things that pulled me away from the classroom and fractured my time with the children,” kindergarten teacher Susan Sluyter quit last month. 

“It takes the joy out of learning for the children," she told TODAY. "It takes the joy out of teaching.”

Not every suggestion provided in this resource will fit every situation.  You’ll need to find what works best for your students in the context of your course; an iterative approach will likely be necessary in order to meet your learning goals.  Variables like class size and personality, scheduling, and topic might require adjustments.  A group with a sense of community established through in-class interaction might seamlessly continue discussions online, while another groups might require more attention.

Beware online "filter bubbles" | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
As web companies strive to tailor their services (including news and search results) to our personal tastes, there's a dangerous unintended consequence: We get trapped in a "filter bubble" and don't get exposed to information that could challenge or broaden our worldview. Eli Pariser argues powerfully that this will ultimately prove to be bad for us and bad for democracy.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

If a machine (Google, Bing, Skynet) controls your access to information your perspective could be warped in ways you are completely unaware of.   Science fiction? Not really. Easy to escape. You bet!  Listen to Pariser's ideas, and then act to improve and control your own filters. ~ Dennis

Curating is about finding and selecting information in order to learn about a subject. Youngsters can be encouraged to do this  pre-school.  This motivational 21st century skill can be encouraged at home. with educational games toys and and books which stimulates interest.  For example children can learn about  science by interacting with Chemistry Lab; Horrible Science - explosive experiments; Newton's Cradle and Science Museum.  By the time they get to school they are already full of curiosity and ready to increase their knowledge.  Audrey curating for www.homeschoolsource.co.uk

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, March 30, 9:27 AM

By Robin Good,

Here's a short first-hand report highlighting how an 8th grade social studies class teacher (Terri Inloes) has fully leveraged the content curation potential to let her students dive, discover and make sense of topics (in this case social reform movements) that they had not studied before. All by themselves.


Here the steps taken to make this happen:


a) By using the Question Formulation Technique, the teacher prepared pairs of photographs representing each of the reform movements, one picture dating back to the late 19th century, and another representing where that social reform movement stands in today’s society. 


b) After checking out all of the photos, students settled on the pair of pictures that most caught their interest.


c) They brainstormed and refined a set of specific questions, and then shared their thinking with the class. 

d) With the feedback received they selected the topic which they would curate. 

e) At this point students planned their research strategies. By using 5 different graphic organizers from the book Q Tasks, by Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan, students were allowed to choose the one that they thought would help them the most in planning their keyword search strategies. 


f) Students were assigned WordPress blogs and provided basic instructions on how to use them to 

curate and publish their research work.


g) Discovery and real learning kicked in as students proceeded in collaborative groups to research and document their chosen topic. 


You can see some of the outcomes that this assignment produced right here:

What is Universal Design for Learning (UDL)? | National Center on Accessible Instructional Materials

What is Universal Design for Learning (UDL)? | National Center on Accessible Instructional Materials | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Introduction

A major premise of this report is that access to the curriculum for students with low-incidence disabilities is greatly enhanced by universal design. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a particular framework that applies to education. More specifically, UDL is an approach that can guide curriculum reform. A universally-designed curriculum includes multiple means of representation (to allow various ways of acquiring information and knowledge), multiple means of expression (to allow alternatives for demonstrating knowledge), and multiple means of engagement (to challenge appropriately, to motivate, and to allow learners to express and participate in their interests). A number of current contrasting approaches to universal design will be described. We conclude with an explanation of UDL. This will allow the reader to keep UDL in mind while progressing through subsequent sections until UDL solutions for curriculum access are more closely examined in our conclusion.
