How-to Become a Master Instructional Designer - YouTube

Thoughts about instructional design. Instructional design is a profession that is getting a rebirth due to the internet; this leaves many trying to get a car...
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Anna's advice is rock solid. Instructional designers must be able to show what they know. If you are looking to get started in the ID field, creating content to demonstrate your mastery of design is the way to go. 


If you're looking for a fast track to developing ID mastery, consider UW-Stout's Instructional Design Graduate Certificate Program.

Microsoft, Intel, and Gaming Companies Get Ready for Laptops and Tablets with 3-D Vision | MIT Technology Review

Microsoft, Intel, and Gaming Companies Get Ready for Laptops and Tablets with 3-D Vision | MIT Technology Review | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Laptops with 3-D sensors in place of conventional webcams will go on sale before the end of this year, according to chip maker Intel, which is providing the sensing technology to manufacturers. And tablets with 3-D sensors will hit the market in 2015, the company said at its annual developers’ conference in San Francisco on Wednesday.

Achin Bhowmik, general manager for Intel’s perceptual computing business unit stated, “You can bring all these digital characters into the real world. It could be your favorite Disney character or something from a game."

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

As an online educator, I look at gaming technology and immediately see learning opportunities. At a conference in 1996 I listened to Ray Kurszweil describe a future where AI enabled holographic avatars would be personal mentors and master teachers able to meet the individual needs of each and every learner. It was a vision of ultimate differentiation that would allow everyone to meet there maximum potential.


This 3-D gaming announcement feels like another step into that future.

Today, Edmodo is excited to announce a partnership with Common Sense Media, a national non-profit dedicated to helping kids and families thrive in a world of media and technology. As part of our partnership, we have created  a new resource for educators, the “Digital Citizenship Starter Kit,” which includes a series of activities and lessons designed to introduce digital citizenship concepts right in Edmodo. All lessons are based on Common Sense Media’s free K-12 Digital Literacy and Citizenship curriculum.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

"She Didn’t Teach. We Had to Learn it Ourselves.”

"She Didn’t Teach. We Had to Learn it Ourselves.” | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

By: Maryellen Weimer, PhD in Teaching Professor Blog


So, the criticism is one of those backhanded compliments. The teacher is making students figure out things for themselves. They are doing the hard, messy work of learning. This is a style of teaching that promotes learning, but that’s not how students see it. Based on experiences in lots of other classrooms, they have come to believe that “good” teachers tell students what they need to know. If a teacher makes the students come up with examples when she has a perfectly good list she could be giving them, that teacher is not doing her job



Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Terrific article. Maryellen Weiner brings great perspective to a problem all online instructors must resolve.  How do we move our students from dependency on getting the 'right' answers from the teacher, to self-directed learners willing to put in the effort to think and learn.

Bonjour!  Welcome to my French 2 unit,  À la maison.  This unit was created for my face-to-face French 2 class and adapted for the virtual classroom as part of my Assessment in E-Learning course through the University of Wisconsin-Stout. 


As you read through this unit, you will find the demographic information for my current teaching position at Lake Mills High School, as well as the course content and description for my face-to-face class.  While the learning objectives remain the same, the delivery, as seen in the Unit Overview and the Learning Objectives, utilizes assessments that will be used in a virtual classroom

Here is a well designed, in-depth unit suitable for high school or college French classes.  It was designed by Ellen Onsrud, a talented online and face to face teacher who recently graduated from the UW-Stout E-Learning and Online Teaching program. You'll appreciate the detailed assessments provided in this unit! (Way to go Ellen!)

Facilitating Creative Online Forums and Discussion Boards in Online Learning by Linda Silva

Facilitating Creative Online Forums and Discussion Boards in Online Learning by Linda Silva | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Too often, instructors get caught up in seeing forums as a quantitative measure of how much a student has learned, gauging understanding by replying with prompts that are, frankly, as boring or as tedious as some of the material students have been asked to read. 


These conversations between students have more depth and more personality because they are creating, building, having fun and interacting. They are not just replying to a prompt. They are using their imaginations. The process brings an energy and passion that engages them.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Linda Silva writes, "One of the best ways to get students more involved is by offering prompts that enable students to use their own previous education— and prod them to use their imagination."


I've used a version of this idea in my professional development classes for years. I always encourage 'teaching stories". This is a way to help teachers see the connections between the course content and their own teaching environments. It also encourages story telling which is a very powerful way to synthesize ideas, not to mention very interesting to read (listen) to.

Diversifying the Role Course Content Plays

Diversifying the Role Course Content Plays | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

By: Maryellen Weimer, PhD in Teaching Professor Blog -


We all pretty much agree that we try to cover too much material in our courses, programs, and majors, but the thought of leaving things out often causes personal and profession anguish. We argue with ourselves that a certain piece of content is too important to cut, and our students need to know the information to pass certifying exams and to get jobs. Then there are departmental expectations. Most courses establish knowledge bases for subsequent courses. Our colleagues are depending on us. We further complicate matters by making course and instructor reputations a function of content quantity. A decrease in the amount covered means lower standards and a dilution of the intellectual currency of the course. Bottom line: We know we’ve got a problem, but these realities and our thinking have us backed into a corner.


Burkholder asks a question that creates some space in which to move. “What should the role of content be?” I vote for multiple roles.

Servant-leadership: the Online Way! E-learning where community building is key

Servant-leadership: the Online Way! E-learning where community building is key | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Sylvia van de Bunt-Kokhuis, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Nabil Sultan, Liverpool Hope University, United Kingdom


Abstract

The digitalisation of educational communities has increased rapidly in the last decade. Modern technologies transform the way educational leaders such as teachers, tutors, deans and supervisors view and manage their educational communities. More often, educational leaders offer a variety of gateways, guiding the e-learners in their search for finding and understanding information. A new type of leader is required for understanding the needs and requirements of geographically dispersed e-learners. This calls for a compassioned kind of leader, able to reconcile the dilemma of high-tech versus hi-touch in the online classroom. This article examines servant-leadership and its implications for e-learning in the 24/7 classroom where community building is key.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

The role of the teacher in online education is often described as the guide on the side, rather than the sage on the stage. Servant leadership concepts bring nuance and depth to the role of guide or facilitator.


In this article the authors stake out promising new ground for research. "In literature (amongst others Greenleaf, 1977 and 1991; Keith, 2011; Nuijten, 2009; Trompenaars and Voerman, 2009; Sarayrah, 2004; Vargas and Hanlon, 2007 and Spears, 2000) servant-leadership qualities can be found like listening, forgiveness, empathy, humility, care for people and the organization, healing of relationships, awareness, persuasion, courage, giving feedback, conceptualization, foresight, stewardship, authenticity, commitment to the growth and empowerment of others and building community. Teachers with some or more of these servant-leadership (high-touch) qualities can make the difference in the e-learning environment. In the (high-tech) online classroom the teacher, more than ever before, needs to be qualified to amongst others listen, care for the e-learners, encourage awareness raising, give feedback and, last but not least, build a vivid learning community. This calls for a compassioned kind of educational leader, able to connect high-tech (technology mediated learning, multimedia infrastructure) opportunities with hi-touch (contact, human interaction, commitment to the growth of others, etc.) opportunities in the online classroom."


The e-learning environments envisioned in this internationally oriented paper describe many of the values driving the University of Wisconsin-Stout's E-Learning and Online Teaching Graduate Certificate.

Professional Learning Communities - What is a PLC?

Professional Learning Communities - What is a PLC? | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

From the Center for Comprehensive School Reform and Improvement:


"Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) shift the focus of school reform from restructuring to reculturing (Louis, 2006). A PLC is an ongoing process used to establish a schoolwide culture that develops teacher leadership explicitly focused on building and sustaining school improvement efforts. Generally, PLCs are composed of teachers, although administrators and support staff routinely participate (Bolam, McMahon, Stoll, Thomas, & Wallace, 2005; Huffman, 2000). In some schools, PLCs are extended to community members and students, as appropriate (Stoll, Bolam, McMahon, Wallace, & Thomas, 2006; Stoll & Louis, 2007). Through participation in PLCs, teachers enhance their leadership capacity while they work as members of ongoing, high-performing, collaborative teams that focus on improving student learning (Rentfro, 2007).
