The Art of the Discussion Prompt | IDDblog

The Art of the Discussion Prompt | IDDblog | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Discussions are sometimes called the engine of an online course. Discussions provide an opportunity for students to engage with the course content, with each other, and with you—the professor—simultaneously, which means they have a lot of potential for meaningful learning and high retention.

There is no guarantee that students will really apply themselves by just creating a discussion. What you get out of a discussion assignment depends on what you put into it. Here are some tips for writing your discussion prompt, selecting your settings, and participating in the discussion.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

No matter how you decide to frame the assignment, it’s important to ensure that the discussion is meaningful and not busy work. Some of the most effective discussions foster students’ creativity, ability to solve problems, make decisions, collaborate, and conduct research. Interestingly enough, this type of engagement is similar to what students experience with K-12 educational technology via ISTE’s NETS standards for students. Continuing to build on this framework at the collegiate level is essential.

Text Engine was developed to offer cell phone users a means to search the web using their text messaging service. This is great news for educators and students in low-income and rural communities.  

And that's a good thing, because while smartphones are popular, there is still a great need for text-only services in low-income and rural districts. There is also a need in districts like NYC that empower students to bring their own devices to school, but don't have the means to enable students to connect to the internet.

Scoop.it!

Case Study: 21CIF Scoop.it Magazine

Case Study: 21CIF Scoop.it Magazine | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Teaching Information Fluency describes the skills and dispositions of information fluency adept searchers. Readers will receive in-depth information on what it takes to locate, evaluate, and ethically use digital information. The book realistically examines the abilities of Internet searchers today in terms of their efficiency and effectiveness in finding online information, evaluating it and using it ethically. Since the majority of people develop these skills on their own, rather than being taught, the strategies they invent may suffice for simple searches, but for more complex tasks, such as those required by academic and professional work, the average person’s performance is adequate only about 50% of the time. The book is laid out in five parts: an introduction to the problem and how search engine improvements are not sufficient to be of real help, speculative searching, investigative searching, ethical use and applications of information fluency. The intent of the book is to provide readers ways to improve their performance as consumers of digital information and to help teachers devise useful ways to integrate information fluency instruction into their teaching, since deliberate instruction is needed to develop fluency. Since it is unlikely that dedicated class time will be available for such instruction, the approach taken embeds information fluency activities into classroom instruction in language arts, history and science. Numerous model lessons and resources are woven into the fabric of the text, including think-alouds, individual and group search challenges, discussions, assessments and curation, all targeted to Common Core State Standards as well as information fluency competencies.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Understanding curation by creating and using a Scoop.it magazine is one of the projects in EDUC 760: E-Learning for Educators.  Constructing knowledge by skillfully tagging, annotating, and sharing information is a way to filter and use the ocean of information we live and teach with. 8-)

The Long Road from Reactive to Proactive: Developing an Accessibility Strategy

Implementing accessibility policies in higher education is no easy task. For many, it is easy to get caught in a cycle of reactive accommodation where larger accessibility policies are never implemented. So how do you transition from reactive policies to proactive policies?


Korey Singleton, the Assistive Technology Initiative Manager at George Mason University, will walk you through their two-year process of moving from reactive solutions to proactive accessibility policies. His own experience with how difficult it can be to shift campus climate and administrative support towards proactive accessibility is incredibly useful for other universities struggling with the same thing.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Is your institution proactive or reactive when it comes to accessibility?  Recent Accessibility lawsuits files against Harvard and MIT signal a significant challenge to all higher education institutions: it's time for a change. 


This webinar presents the hard earned wisdom and experience of the Assistive Technology Initiative at George Mason University.


The question of the moment is, do we act now or wait to get sued?
