English Raven: Moodle Tutorial: Using book module pages instead of topic/week blocks

English Raven: Moodle Tutorial: Using book module pages instead of topic/week blocks | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
When you're building your Moodle course, you may find that using the standard topic/week blocks on the main page is not the most ideal way to present and apply your content and learning activities. The topic blocks can be handy, but they can comprise a "scroll of death" (note one way to avoid this here) and tend to present like a database and 'list' things like downloads and quizzes and assignments without many real options to contextualise them or present them in a 'fuller' learning sequence.

The Teacher’s Visual Guide To Social Media | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Posted by Terry Heick via onlinecolleges.net

 

"What can social media do for you in your classroom? A lot, actually.

The use of social media in formal learning environments is an exciting possibility for a variety of reasons, including authenticity of learning materials, widespread availability, low cost (assuming technology to access it is in place), and other potential, including higher-level thinking possibilities, many of which we outlined in our twitter spectrum.

 

"The following visual takes a look at facebook, twitter, wordpress, pinterest, and YouTube (a topic we also covered recently)."

A Neurologist Makes the Case for Teaching Teachers About the Brain

A Neurologist Makes the Case for Teaching Teachers About the Brain | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
"Do you recall some of your college professors who knew their subject matter but had zero teaching skills? Staying awake in their one-way-directed lecture classes required Herculean strength (or lots of coffee). They were never trained to develop the skillset of engagement strategies.


Even though I was a physician with a strong science background, when I decided to become a classroom teacher (and thought I'd teach science), I did not want to make that career change without the benefit of instruction and guided student teaching. The year I spent in my graduate school of education program was invaluable in my transition to becoming a professional educator."

100 iPad Apps Perfect For Middle School | The Committed Sardine | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

When it comes to apps, I give up. Every day there are a few dozen more that will change everything, make our lives easier, and our academic lives more enriching. No one can possibly stay on top of it, which is why I depend on the wisdom of others to keep me informed. To paraphrase Henry Jenkins in Convergence Culture, 'There's too much for everyone to know, everyone knows something, and we have no choice but to work together.' That's why I depend on lists of apps like these to keep me in the loop. I pass it on for your edification

8 Great Tools to Create Webinars Online

8 Great Tools to Create Webinars Online | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
One of the pluses of technology in education is the fact that it liberated the notion of formal instruction and destroyed its confining walls. There is an emerging breed of teachers nowadays who no longer accept the notion that the classroom is necessarily contained within four walls. They use social media and telecommunication technologies to globalize their instruction and extend their teaching to everywhere in the world.
