Five ways to stop online cheating | On Teaching Online

Five ways to stop online cheating | On Teaching Online | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

I had the chance to talk with a class of college undergraduates (real, live people in an actual classroom) a few weeks ago and one of the topics that came up made me re-examine a common problem for online teachers– cheating.

 

Academic cheating is nothing new but the impact it has on online education seems easier, and more widespread, than in face-to-face classrooms. This is a gut feeling, and the research suggests cheating and plagiarism are widespread in every educational environment, at any age, across every culture.

 

(Those of us in direct, live contact with smiling students are fooling ourselves to think classroom cheating is less prevalent, or that we can somehow catch evil-doers more easily in person.) I’ve written about ways to prevent online cheating here at On Teaching Online before, here.

Design Thinking for Educators

Design Thinking for Educators | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Design Thinking is a mindset. Design Thinking is the confidence that everyone can be part of creating a more desirable future, and a process to take action when faced with a difficult challenge. That kind of optimism is well needed in education.

Why teach search?


Google understands the importance of finding the right information at the right time. We create tools to let you find the information you need, of the kind you need, when you need it. In most cases, a simple search works really well. But for more specialized questions, a bit of instruction in how to search improves all searcher--from middle school students to trained professionals--and lets you discover and use more, higher quality sources than ever before.

Emotions And Learning: Part I: The eLearning Coach @elearningcoach

Emotions And Learning: Part I: The eLearning Coach @elearningcoach | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Cognitive scientists define emotions as powerful, usually short-lived experiences that are a reaction to a specific stimulus. As part of the human evolutionary legacy, emotions arise from a rapid appraisal of an object or event’s significance in order to prepare us for action—similar to an alert system.


Emotions not only increase our general awareness and help us adapt to changes in an unpredictable environment, but they also

===> facilitate social communication and interaction. <===

 

That’s because we read the emotions of others through their facial expressions, bodily postures, gestures and tone of voice.

Students should be taught how to study. | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

"Every year I teach an introductory course on cognitive psychology to about 350 students. Every year I ask my students how they study and I find that they are much like students at Purdue, Washington University in St. Louis, UCLA, and Kent State--universities at which surveys have been conducted on student study strategies.

Like students at those schools, my students tend to take notes in class, color the readings with a highlighter, and later reread the notes and the highlighted bits of the text.

This Table show the results of a study by Jeff Karpicke and his colleagues (2009)  on the study strategies of students at Washington University in St. Louis. (For other studies leading to similar conclusions see Hartwig & Dunlosky, 2012; Kornell & Bjork, 2007)..."

I also troll for information on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and many blogs. When I find an article that fits the needs of my students I use the handy Curation Widget to capture a summary of the article.
