The High Cost of Low Teacher Salaries

The High Cost of Low Teacher Salaries | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
When we don’t like the way our students score on international standardized tests, we blame the teachers. When we don’t like the way particular schools perform, we blame the teachers and restrict their resources.


Compare this with our approach to our military: when results on the ground are not what we hoped, we think of ways to better support soldiers. We try to give them better tools, better weapons, better protection, better training. And when recruiting is down, we offer incentives.

Rethinking Curriculum Writing, Part 2

Rethinking Curriculum Writing, Part 2 | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

This is a continuation of the 'Everything you know about curriculum may be wrong. Really' that I scooped yesterday. (Both by Grant Wiggins)  In this post he continues to look at "an explosion of educational innovation" (which began in the 1930s). Along with Ralph Tyler (whom he brought up in his first post) he also presents work from Harold Fawcett, Hollis Caswell, and John Dewey. This post looks at the concepts of curriculum scope and sequence, with a focus on sequence, and if it is 'logical' or 'psychological'.

Abstract


The most productive learning experience for students whether online or in face-to-face classes can often be the interaction among students and with an instructor. Online teaching and Social Network Analysis (SNA) offer the opportunity to examine intellectual social networking and strategies that promotes student interaction which can enhance learning.


This study focuses on two online courses in which we used Social Network Analysis (SNA) techniques to evaluate and compare student and instructor interactions of two online courses (Lesley University, Cambridge, MA and Instituto Piaget, Lisbon, Portugal). One course was taught by an experienced online instructor and the other by an instructor new to the online teaching format.

Perceived Usefulness: 17 Keyboard Shortcuts You Must Know

Perceived Usefulness: 17 Keyboard Shortcuts You Must Know | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

There are probably thousands of keyboard shortcuts out there but here are my top 17 shortcuts that I use frequently and find the most useful. Together, they probably represent 85% of all my shortcut use. I'm still amazed at how many people don't know these...


I use both Macs and PC so I'm listing the shortcuts required for each one (If I know it!). I'll always list the Mac shortcut first (Mac / PC). You'll notice how similar they are, so if you learn them on one platform they are easy to learn on the other.

Flipping the Classroom Requires More Than Video

Flipping the Classroom Requires More Than Video | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
The term “flipped classroom” is most attributed to two chemistry teachers from Colorado, Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams, who pioneered the use of screencasting and video podcasting in 2006 to deliver content for their high school science classes. Those techno-centric terms made parents and other teachers recoil, however, so the innovators began calling their method “Reverse Instruction.” It wasn’t until September 2010, when Daniel Pink wrote an article about Karl Fisch did the method become known as the Flipped Classroom. Fisch subsequently credited the Colorado teachers with the inspiration.

Rethinking the Way College Students Are Taught

Rethinking the Way College Students Are Taught | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Lecturing was invented as a way to share information in a time before books were widely available. Now, there are better approaches.


Redish is trying to change the way college students are taught. He says lecturing has never been an effective teaching method, and now that information is so easily accessible, lecturing is a waste of time.

"With modern technology, if all there is is lectures, we don't need faculty to do it," Redish says. "Get 'em to do it once, put it on the web, and fire the faculty."

Think Different? Not in Higher Ed - Next - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Think Different? Not in Higher Ed - Next - The Chronicle of Higher Education | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Whenever a new competitor enters the higher-education market and tries something different, those at traditional colleges criticize the newcomers as not understanding pedagogy. Just see the negative comments on recent Chronicle articles about online education or StraighterLine, which offers self-paced introductory courses but not degrees.


But what if higher ed lost its grip on the credential business? Perhaps then administrators and professors would be forced to think that there is more than one way to provide a college education.

Transforming Information Literacy for Today’s K-12 Learners Through...

In this slideshow Buffy J. Hamilton discusses the concepts of transliteracy, providing a variety of definitions, and then explores how we can use these concepts as a process while working with students. If we embrace inquiry based learning, then participatory learning and transliterate learning are a part of the whole. The words connect, wonder, investigate, construct, express and reflect are explored with many resources and ideas provided to help you start this process in your classroom with your students.

Angie Hammons's curator insight, October 19, 2014 11:33 PM

This is a slide set from a presentation on transliteracy.  This slide set provides a good foundation for understanding what transliteracy is.  It is important to understand that you can't take digital literacy or information literacy and focus on them individually.  Each of the different literacies are connected and should be recognized as such.
