The Modern Language Association likes to keep up with the times. As we all know, some information breaks first or only on Twitter and a good academic needs to be able to cite those sources. So, the MLA has devised a standard format that you should keep in mind.

ISTE 2012: How a Flipped Classroom Model Can Change the World

ISTE 2012: How a Flipped Classroom Model Can Change the World | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
The "sage on the stage" doesn't have to be the default approach to education.


"The entire lecture approach is more like a shotgun approach: everyone gets one taste of the same level of instruction. With the flipped classroom, teachers are no longer restricted by that because that's provided at this kid's own pace, at home, off campus."
- Mark Washington
Director of Technology and Media Services for the Port Huron Area School District, Mich

Abstract

K-12 online learning and cyber charter schools have grown at a tremendous rate over the past decade. At the same time, these online programs have struggled to provide the social spaces where students can interact that K-12 schools are traditionally able to provide. Social networking presents a unique opportunity to provide these kinds of social interactions in an online environment. In this article, we trace the development and use of social networking at one cyber charter school to extend the space for online instruction and provide opportunities for social interaction that online schools are often unable to provide.

Classroom Management Strategies | Problems with mobile phones in lessons? Try these classroom management strategies… | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Policies regarding mobile phones vary from setting to setting so the way you address this problem will depend on the school/college’s overall viewpoint. If the establishment you’re working in has a definite rule and consequences in place regarding use of phones you can treat this as any other behaviour problem and consistently stick to the policy. This can be such a huge problem however, with students being so passionate about their phones, that enforcing the rules can be difficult. Here are four additional classroom management strategies to help you deal with the mobile phone problem:

ISTE 2012 Tuesday Keynote Featuring Yong Zhao

From the website

 

"Dr. Yong Zhao addresses ISTE 2012 attendees on the topic of " Global, Creative, and Entrepreneurial: Defining High-Quality Education."

 

"How do you prepare students for their future when globalization and rapid technological changes make it almost impossible to predict what the future will be like? In this presentation, Dr. Yong Zhao shows how the current measures of education quality, such as the PISA and TIMSS, are misleading, and how the so-called high-performing education systems do not actually produce the kind of creative and entrepreneurial talents we need. He makes the case for a future-oriented education starting with each child instead of an authoritative prescription of knowledge and skills. He discusses the education necessary to prepare students to be globally competent and creative entrepreneurs."
