Dr. Julie Zaloudek: UW-Stout Critical Theory Learning Glass Lecture 5

Dr. Julie Zaloudek Spring, 2016

 

In a mostly dark studio in Millennium Hall, Julie Zaloudek stood in front of an illuminated pane of glass about the size of a large television.

 

From a control room came the voice of Ed Jakober, of Learning Technology Services at University of Wisconsin-Stout. “Quiet in the studio. OK. Smile,” he said as he turned on a video camera.

Zaloudek began to lecture for her Dynamics of the Family class for online students majoring in human development and family studies.

 

Facing a camera that was positioned on the other side of the glass, she wrote on the glass with a brightly colored marker.

Typically, with the camera opposite her, what Zaloudek was writing would appear backward. When the video was finished, however, students would be able to read her writing.

 

Learning Glass is a see-through blackboard with a twist.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Learning Glass, a new tool for instructors at UW-Stout.

The $4 Million Teacher | Wall Street Journal

The $4 Million Teacher | Wall Street Journal | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

by Amanda Ripley

 

"Kim Ki-hoon earns $4 million a year in South Korea, where he is known as a rock-star teacher—a combination of words not typically heard in the rest of the world. Mr. Kim has been teaching for over 20 years, all of them in the country's private, after-school tutoring academies, known as hagwons. Unlike most teachers across the globe, he is paid according to the demand for his skills—and he is in high demand.


"Mr..Kim works about 60 hours a week teaching English, although he spends only three of those hours giving lectures. His classes are recorded on video, and the Internet has turned them into commodities, available for purchase online at the rate of $4 an hour. He spends most of his week responding to students' online requests for help, developing lesson plans and writing accompanying textbooks and workbooks (some 200 to date)."

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I started teaching at a time when even a science fiction junkie couldn't come up with a 4 million a year teacher. Now it's possible. If stories like this don't get teachers building online curriculum.... I don't know what will!

not exactly gamification - but success breeds success - good feedback systems to parents and people are rewarded for their efforts.

Qui a dit que le métier d'enseignant payait mal ;-) ?

NB : à noter la répartition entre le temps du suivi des étudiants à distance par rapport aux activités "transmissives".

This module on Interactive Lectures provides strategies and specific examples of techniques and activities designed to involve students in large and small lecture-based classes. The module is designed for the instructor who does not want to replace lecture, but rather to enhance and punctuate lecture to create an interactive classroom experience while maintaining lecture as the primary content delivery mechanism.

Stanford University recently explored offering online courses to a larger audience with a programming class for iPhone applications, first available in...

 

"Instead of lectures, “this generation is completely comfortable watching a video online; for them, it’s not markedly different than having a person up at the front of the classroom. They are happy using technology. They know how to hit the pause button; they know how to speed it up a little bit, to watch it 20 percent faster and make the process more efficient.”

Learning Glass helps UW-Stout professors connect with online students

Learning Glass helps UW-Stout professors connect with online students | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Learning Glass is a see-through blackboard with a twist.

 

Assistant Professor Julie Zaloudek: “With Learning Glass, you can see the instructors’ passion for the content we’re teaching. The student has the perception that we’re looking at them, and we like that.”

 

The idea for Learning Glass came from Jamison Patrick, of the Stout Online instructional design team. He saw a video about Learning Glass by a San Diego State professor who created one.

Patrick and Mike Cropp at the UW-Stout Discovery Center Fab Lab designed and built their own Learning Glass last fall using quarter-inch thick tempered glass mounted on a stand. Learning Technology Services created the set for videotaping.

“This provides an opportunity to be more engaging to our students,” Patrick said. “It’s low-cost and the return on investment is high. The possibilities are endless with e-learning.”

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

The creative engergy of well trained minds is just part of what makes online teaching and learning a vital field. Kudos to the Fab-Lab and the committed educators of Stout Online.

Lecture As Content Delivery Is Dead | The Thinking Stick

Lecture As Content Delivery Is Dead | The Thinking Stick | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

This is what I am coming to understand. That the lecture use to be the way we delivered content to students. The PowerPoint made this easier on us as it allowed us to make some quick bullet points of what we wanted to cover and then go about "covering the material".
