Good Work: Future Project Pushes Passion-Driven Learning

Good Work: Future Project Pushes Passion-Driven Learning | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
The biggest problem in American secondary schools may be boredom. What American youth need more then anything is opportunity to discover their passions and unleash them into the world. The Future Project, a NYC-based startup, is addressing this challenge by mobilizing an army—the Future Corps—to help American high school students find and begin working toward their dream.

The Virtues of Blogging as Scholarly Activity - The Digital Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

The Virtues of Blogging as Scholarly Activity - The Digital Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

By Professor Martin Weller: "In terms of intellectual fulfillment, creativity, networking, impact, productivity, and overall benefit to my scholarly life, blogging wins hands down. I have written books, produced online courses, led research efforts, and directed a number of university projects. While these have all been fulfilling, blogging tops the list because of its room for experimentation and potential to connect to timely intelligent debate. That keeps blogging at the top of the heap."

Hybrid Pedagogy is an academic and networked journal on teaching and technology that combines the strands of critical and digital pedagogy to arrive at the best social and civil uses of technology and digital media in education.


Consider four core values for the classroom in general and the online classroom: show up, be curious, collaborate, and contribute. The online classroom is more student-directed in the sense that students are more "on their own" than they are in a traditional classroom.

Three Ring Demo

"Three Ring is creating the first platform to allow teachers to create digital copies of student work and activity using their smartphones. We have developed an app/web platform that allows teachers to simply and quickly take a picture of student work with their smartphone, tag it with content indicators, and upload it to an online interface. There, the work can be searched, organized into customizable portfolios, used to create representations of student learning over time, and shared with the student, parents, and administrators. It's a simple, but extremely flexible tool that empowers teachers and students to get more out of assessments."

The Innovative Educator: Using Cell Phones to Support Student Engagement & Achievement in Speaking and Listening

The Innovative Educator: Using Cell Phones to Support Student Engagement & Achievement in Speaking and Listening | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

There are many great tools to capture voice with cell phones. Google voice is one such tool that is free and easy to use and enables educators to capture voice messages from students without providing them with their direct phone number. The power of this kicks in when you realize that what Google Voice does is become a repository for oral reports, assignments, or sound bites. Not only is it a repository, but teachers can write notes on each clip, share, and post them. To get an account and learn more visit www.google/voice.com
