Brain Dip Magazine

Brain Dip Magazine | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

"We developed Brain Dip Magazine to add some zest to your middle-school curriculum. Maybe you just want to download it for FREE from the Apple App Store, maybe you are interested in making it part of your curriculum, or maybe you would just like to see the printed version. Either way, we are sure that you and your students will find yourself dipping into it. The AIS learning & research methodology is designed to help students connect education with real-life events. It enables students to ask questions about current events, conduct unbiased research, and share their findings with their classmates. Brain Dip Magazine can act as the core element of the AIS learning & research methodology, whether it is used in digital format for the iPad or as a printed version.


The goal is to create a student-driven learning environment in which educators act as learning coaches, guiding students to ask meaningful questions that offer substantial research possibilities as well as offering feedback on their research and its outcome."

What Is Systems Thinking?: Interactive Components of Video Games Are Perfect Examples

What Is Systems Thinking?: Interactive Components of Video Games Are Perfect Examples | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Systems thinking is the process of understanding how a group of interacting, interrelated, interdependent components influence each other within the whole. Rather than viewing each problem as an independent entity, it must be considered in the context of its relationship to other parts of the system. Systems thinking teaches students how to solve problems, communicate, use data, and design policies for greater success.

David Brooks / The campus tsunami: Online education is the wave of the future, even at elite universities

David Brooks / The campus tsunami: Online education is the wave of the future, even at elite universities | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Online learning could extend the influence of U.S. universities around the world. India alone hopes to build tens of thousands of colleges over the next decade. Curricula from U.S. schools could permeate those institutions.


Research into online learning suggests that it is roughly as effective as classroom learning. It's easier to tailor a learning experience to an individual student's pace and preferences. Online learning seems especially useful in language and remedial education.
