International Landscape of K-12 Online and Blended Learning - Michael Barbour May 14, 2015 2pm EDT

International Landscape of K-12 Online and Blended Learning -  Michael Barbour May 14, 2015 2pm EDT | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Michigan Virtual Learning Research:


Many involved with K-12 online and blended learning are familiar with the American context that surrounds us in the media and published research; however, while there are many similarities, there are also several key areas where there are differences in how K-12 online and blended learning occur internationally. Join us to gain some global insights and participate in a lively discussion.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Here's a great opportunity to get a more global understanding of K-12 Online Blended online.  I know Michael Barbour's work well and have had the pleasure of talking with him at length about this topic. Dr. Barbour has practical experience, international perspective, and powerful ideas. Don't miss this chance to see outside the 'box'! ~ Dennis

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, July 9, 2013 1:42 PM

I like some of these ideas. I'm thinking we could have students make podcast booktalks and have QR codes linking to them in the books or on a display or around the school. Hmm...kids can't use their phones at school, yet. Well, I can always put links to them in our catalog and on the website.

Connie Wise's curator insight, July 23, 2013 12:04 AM

Use podcasting to meet Common Core standards of speaking & writing.

BI Media Specialists's curator insight, August 19, 2013 3:05 PM

Let us know if we can try one of these projects with your class.

eLearning Podcasts (and a few others): The eLearning Coach | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Some people dance with their iPods. I learn with mine. I’m addicted to podcasts because they’ve changed my life. It’s the only way I know to keep up with subjects and topics of interest without taking away from tasks that must be done. I listen while driving, working out and washing dishes.

Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Document Field Trip Learning with AudioBoo

Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Document Field Trip Learning with AudioBoo | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

As a free audio service with free smartphone apps for both iPhone and AndroidAudioBoo is an ideal platform to use on a student field trip to document experiences with both audio and images. This morning I accompanied my 3rd grade daughter’s class to the Oklahoma History Center in Oklahoma City, as a parent volunteer. In advance I created a 1 page flyer for other parents who might be interested in also using AudioBoo with their student group.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

AudioBoo is a terrific progrm.  I've used it a few times over the past months. Here's a fine teacher's thinking on how use smartphoned based podcasting in a unique way.

André Sanguinette's curator insight, April 26, 2013 11:14 PM

Uma boa dica para a utilização das tecnologias que despertam tão grande interesse nos alunos. Além de deter a atenção do grupo trabalhamos com atividades lúdicas, porem não menos didáticas.

Deve-se salientar que ao trabalhar métodos inovadores é preciso tomar algumas precações para não se tornar apenas uma fuga de conteúdos e responsabilidades.

Flipped Learning Network Podcast

Flipped Learning Network Podcast | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Aaron Sams and Jonathan Bergmann, the gentlemen credited with starting flipped learning, have been extraordinarily busy as the concept and grown and spread very rapidly in the past year. 

 

Their book, Flip Your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day, was the first joint publication effort by ISTE and ASCD and they have criss-crossed the nation making presentations. Their site https://flippedlearning.eduvision.tv/default.aspx, has published 100s of how-to videos on numerous aspects, grade levels, and subject areas related to the flip. (Unfortunately, they have chosen to charge a hefty $97 apiece for viewing these videos. I know it costs to produce the videos, and the presenters are justified in being compensated for their time and effort, but this price is well out of the range of what teachers can afford for their own PD. Surely a better model can be developed)

 

Bergmann has posted a significant amount of links to free videos and podcasts on his personal website http://flipped-learning.com/?page_id=421.

 

Happily, Sams and Bergmann have also chosen to establish a podcast network...and this is without cost. To date (7/23/12), seven podcasts have been posted...at the rate of approximately two per month. The interviews and discussions provide insights, tips, and resources by flip practitioners. Click on the flipped learning logo above to be taken to the podcast network. -JL
