How To Find Openly Licensed Educational Resources You Can Use [Infographic] | e-learning concepts | Scoop.it
Most of us turn to the internet when we are looking for resources to use for a presentation, report or article. The internet holds the key to so many robust resources.

Yet how many of these resources can you legally use for free? How many of them can you adapt?

That’s where Open Educational Resources (OER) can help. Here’s an infographic from the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (at the University of Texas at Austin) that can help.

Ναι, και στην Ελλάδα απαγορεύονται τα κινητά με 1-2 μέρες αποβολή, αν  γίνει χρήση τους εντός της σχολικής τάξης από τον μαθητή, αλλά υπάρχουν και καθηγητές που τα εντάσσουν στη διδασκαλία τους όποτε μπορούν, κρυφά από τον ...διευθυντή.

Providing Feedback | Researched-Based Strategies | Focus on Effectiveness

Providing Feedback | Researched-Based Strategies | Focus on Effectiveness | e-learning concepts | Scoop.it

Providing the right kind of feedback to students can make a significant difference in their achievement. There are two key considerations. First, feedback that improves learning is responsive to specific aspects of student work, such as test or homework answers, and provides specific and related suggestions. There needs to be a strong link between the teacher comment and the student's answer, and it must be instructive. This kind of feedback extends the opportunity to teach by alleviating misunderstanding and reinforcing learning. Second, the feedback must be timely. If students receive feedback no more than a day after a test or homework assignment has been turned in, it will increase the window of opportunity for learning. Feedback is a research-based strategy that teachers, and students, can practice to improve their success.

systerwoody's comment, February 4, 2013 2:30 PM
The challenge is in providing timely feedback spread across 3-4 courses with 25+ students each. Nearly impossible with writing intensive programs, which is a majority of doctoral programs. Sink or swim!

The Most Important Education Technology in 200 Years

The Most Important Education Technology in 200 Years | e-learning concepts | Scoop.it

Technology will define where online education goes next. All those millions of students clicking online can have their progress tracked, logged, studied, and probably influenced, too. Talk to Khan or anyone behind the MOOCs (which largely sprang from university departments interested in computer intelligence) and they’ll all say their eventual goal isn’t to stream videos but to perfect education through the scientific use of data. Just imagine, they say, software that maps an individual’s knowledge and offers a lesson plan unique to him or her.
