Karen Barlow's insight:

Providing valuable feedback is an important part of teaching and learning.  it is essential that either the technology provides appropriate feedback,  or that the facilitator steps in.  Appropriate feedback needs to be more than just ticks or crosses to keep learners engaged and also to ensure that they are grasping the most from their learning materials.

Thanks Cheryl. I found this very iteresting and am looking forward to finding futher information. As a Primary teacher this is very relevant as Blooms Taxonomy is very much used within this environment. The meshing of both is something I will explore further!
Paul Oliveri's curator insight, April 6, 2014 3:21 PM

Like Cheryl I found this to be thought provoking.


Mapping ipad apps against Bloom, SAMR and the 3 Cs reminds me of how much potential this little device has but it all comes back to the learner as to how this technology is utilised. Many learners may be content with using the device at a simple substitution or at best augmentation level and I’m not generalising according to age bracket.

 

The way in which I use this in my teaching is at multiple levels within the SAMR model. There are weekly lectures and resources which may be at the substitution/Augmentation level but there are also weekly collaboration sessions at the Modification/Redefinition level.

 

In my courses the ipad also has a role in authentic assessment as the learner uses the camera and apps such as imovie to video, edit and upload footage of themselves assessing simulated patients. This is indeed transformative and able to happen from anywhere in the world the student has a wireless connection.

 

Previously this style of assessment was conducted live in front of an assessor.

This is a informative and useful info graphic that aligns Blooms taxonomy/SAMR model to iPad apps this is useful for teachers and learning designers in building digital toolkits aligned to Blooms taxonomy or to phases/stages on the SAMR model, we can use the iPad apps identifies or add new apps to this model and build on a tool kit that will support your learning outcomes, teaching/design methodology. 21st century learning/teaching should embrace technology that fits in at all SAMR levels as technology is ubiquitous and digital literacy, engaging in the online world and being a good digital citizen should be an important life long skill that we are also teaching learners today.

Karen Barlow's insight:

Tyres are definitely part of earth-moving industry in which I employed.  This somewhat contextual program, (without actually enrolling in the program), I would guess is not really transformative - I would suggest instead that it fits into substitution or augmentation (bottom) levels of the SAMR model.  I would also suggest that it is based on behaviourism learning theory as the modules are basic modules and most likely about the transfer of data from the computer to the learner in a unknown to known sequence.  Whilst this learner may be actively involved in solving real-world problems, they will be theoretical and exploration my be encouraged, I doubt learning will be truely active.

  This program could easily be enhanced to provide greater transformation.  This program could/would be used as part of a first year apprentice program.  However I would use the program as a starting point, as I am sure there would be parts of the program or points from each module that could be used as part of a forum

Notetaking In The Digital Classroom: A Blended Learning Approach ~ TeachThought

Notetaking In The Digital Classroom: A Blended Learning Approach ~ TeachThought | e-learning | Scoop.it

The Cornell Notes strategy is one possible model students can use, in addition to combination notes, REAP strategy, and others. When used in combination with technology, students are able to activate key brain areas during learning, while also retaining critical information for future review.

 

How Noteaking Is Changing

 

"It’d be easy to fall victim to hyperbole here and suggest that notetaking is the stuff of electricity and holograms, but that’s only partly true. Today, 40% of students prefer a mix of physical and digital notes. In the digital classroom then, the primary shift parallels blended learning: a mix of physical and electronic information that serves as a compromise between “old” and “new” learning.

 

"In the digital classroom, recording pens, tablets, laptops, audio software, and social media make recording, reviewing, sharing, and storing these notes different than it was even 10 years ago. The infographic below explores how."


Via Jim Lerman, Yasemin Allsop, Shelley M Keehn, Nicole Kotoski
Karen Barlow's insight:

Note-taking is a huge thing in education.  Learning a whole heap of systems and theory at work has made me consider and compare alternatives the impact the use of technology has had on taking notes.  As a very kinsethetic learner, taking notes has always played a huge part in learning for me. So is typing the same as writing?  Typing works for me - not only are my notes easier to read at a later date, as I think the words as I type them somehow this connects my fingers to my brain and I seem to absorb and take things on board or transfer the knowledge to my brain [the cognitivits would be happy].  Advancements in technology enable my mind-maps to be included as part of my notes, and I can easily add book-marks etc to make finding a particular point so much easier.  Comments my learning mates or the facilitator make are also easier to incorporate into my own notes - even in a different colour text. Have I learnt more, better or faster? The jury is still out on these questions.  The implications of this as a teacher  is something definitely worth pondering further.

Top 10 e-Learning Tips to Transfer Knowledge From Theory to Practice

Top 10 e-Learning Tips to Transfer Knowledge From Theory to Practice | e-learning | Scoop.it
In this post, I will share the top 10 e-Learning tips that can help you to effectively transfer knowledge in learning settings, instead of merely providing instruction.

Via Cheryl Belbin, Nicole Kotoski
Karen Barlow's insight:

To transfer knowledge effectively requires more than just a behaviourist dump of knowledge.  Instead interaction or collaboration between students and teachers and a learning environment that puts the student in charge as found in a constructivist learning environment.

 

more...
Nicole Kotoski's curator insight, March 30, 2014 11:03 PM

Collaboration and real world learning is at the forefront of today's constructivist approaches to teaching. Anyone surely would understand the critical nature of providing this to their students. A multitude of research has been done and proves that real world learning and collaborative learning broaden student's perspectives and make them think about their own thinking. When students are given the opportunity to collaborate, exchange, discuss, and evaluate their own ideas and the ideas of others it deepens learning and promotes a more critical and realistic view of self and others (Post, 1998). This ideal way of reflection is evident in Piaget’s work, which emphasises the importance of student to student interaction (Eggan & Kauchak, 2010)

Karen Barlow's comment, April 11, 2014 6:47 AM
I agree Nicole, constructivist approaches support a greater depth than can ever be achieved by behaviourist styles of learning.

When the e-learning becomes “social

Rome - In the field of distance learning we always more frequently hear expressions such as e-learning 2.0, or social learning.
Karen Barlow's insight:

The last para of this article refers to the movie 'Dead Poets' Society', and that the whole point of the movie is for everybody to shine  and that they all learn from the experience, thus making it a social event.  This to me is the transformational process.  Whilst collecting articles and commenting on those articles is really a substitution of technology for what could have been a paper or portfolio type activity.  But adding a social media element that encourages and facilitates distance ed student sharing and being able to collaborate or comment on each other's collections makes for a transforming learning opportunity. This is where the true learning exists.

To our surprise, not only did the curved model seem more immersive, it also had noticeably wider viewing angles.

 

The reason could be due to the curvature radius of 4200mm chosen by Samsung, which does seem like the ideal sweet spot.

Within a busy clinical ward in a hospital environment, staff do not have time to undertake a 3 hour on-line course.  When management insist that we complete such course, most staff have to undertake such activities in their own time.

 

By introducing micro-learning sessions it will prepare staff for their yearly assessments in a more practical way.  Staff can click on the relevant link if they require more information on a certain area.  This will target your teaching more to enhancing the students knowledge and experience.
