Ways by which to enrich PBS outputs

Sophia Vitilio's curator insight, February 17, 2014 12:26 AM

 This article gives some free websites that students can use for project based learning assignments.  They all make projects easier for students to put together and to get to from different computers.  In a way this makes me think of my personal learning network with the free ways to share ideas through the internet.  These resources all seem very useful for a project based learning classroom and I cannot wait to see how they will grow and expand by the time I have my own classroom.

Giving Students Feedback With Kaizena (Voice Comments) Tutorial

Published on Sep 10, 2013

Use your voice to give students feedback about their papers in Google Docs. I've only played with this a little bit so far, but I'm really excited to be able to use Kaizena to give my students feedback this year. Being able to add links to resources and reuse those links for other students is so helpful. If you have questions I'm on twitter @JenRoberts1 and the guys who make kaizena are @kaizenaFB if you have feedback for them, or email founders@kaizena.com

WebQuests - ein Einsatzszenario für OER-Materialien

Dieser Blogeintrag entstand ursprünglich als Beitrag zur 4. Woche des  #coer13: "OER Einsatzszenarien".
Arbeitsfeld: 

Web-Quests sind digital bereitgestellte Szenarien und Aufgaben, bei denen die Quellen, auf die zur Bearbeitung der Aufgabe zurückgegriffen werden soll, bereits mit angegeben werden. Sie beruhen auf einem konstruktivistischen Lernbegriff und fördern das selbstgesteurte Lernen in einem sozialen Kontext.

Web-Quests können in allen Schulstufen eingesetzt werden, sobald unbekannte, altersgemäße Texte erlesen werden können und die Lernenden ausreichend Übung im selbstständigen Umgang mit dem Computer erlangt haben.    

Funktionsweise:

Web-Quests sind eine Unterrichtsmethode, die bereits 1995 von Bernie Dodge an der San Diego State University erdacht wurde. Sie ist in Deutschland noch recht unbekannt.

1.) Es wird ein Szenario geschaffen, das so an den Lernenden ausgerichtet ist, dass diese eine intrinsische Motivation entwickeln, sich mit den im Szenario enthaltenden oder daraus enstehenden Fragestellungen zu beschäftigen.

2.) Die Lernenden bekommen eine Aufgabe, die in den meisten Fällen als Gruppe gelöst werden muss. Dazu werden ihnen Materialien zur Verfügung gestellt, die aus Medien jeglicher Art bestehen können. Dieses Material befindet sich vorzugsweise im WWW, oft ist es jedoch sinnvoll (oder aus Urheberrechtsgründen sogar erforderlich) auch herkömmliche Medien wie Buchausschnitte und reale Objekte mit einzubeziehen.

Synchronous or Asynchronous? How to Pick Your Training Delivery Method by Danielle Slatinsky : Learning Solutions Magazine

Synchronous or Asynchronous? How to Pick Your Training Delivery Method by Danielle  Slatinsky : Learning Solutions Magazine | Learn to E-Learn #elearning #authoring #ple #sociallearning | Scoop.it

Synchronous training has the advantage of having been the main method of training for as long as there have been people to train, so there has been ample time to improve it. Some other advantages of synchronous training include:

Instructors can use multiple students for conducting group activities and exercises.Instructors can recognize when participants are confused or frustrated, and they can provide additional instruction or examples to clarify concepts.Learners can get their questions answered immediately and receive instant feedback.

As technology continues to expand training possibilities, the disadvantages of synchronous training become more prevalent:

The instructor and participants have to be in the same place at the same time; for instructor-led training, this can be very costly when including travel expenses.The course is only as good as its trainer.The pace of the course must be matched to the slowest learner, and this prevents opportunities for more advanced learners to jump ahead.

7 Great Strength-Based Universal Design for Learning Apps for Students with Special Needs

7 Great Strength-Based Universal Design for Learning Apps for Students with Special Needs | Learn to E-Learn #elearning #authoring #ple #sociallearning | Scoop.it

The rapid pace of new educational technologies has made it so that students with special needs can accomplish many things in the classroom that were difficult or even impossible for them only a few years ago. The following list contains some of the best apps I’ve seen for kids with neurodiversities in communication, reading, sociability, attention, and behavior.

“Now I existed solely thanks to the quantum paradox, my brain a collection of qubits in quantum superposition, encoding truths and memories, imagination and irrationality in opposing, contradictory states that existed and didn't exist, all at the same time.” ― Robin Wasserman, Crashed

  • WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

    The  key factors are: Learners’ age, back ground knowledge, the purpose of learning, the learners’ circumstances (employed, students, unemployed, etc…)

  • DO YOU HAVE THE COURSE CURRICULUM?

    In many cases the course curriculum does exist, for example: National Curriculum, University course modules , In-house corporate training.

  • WHAT EXTERNAL PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS NEED TO BE MET?

    All external examination bodies provide an exam guide or syllabus which you have to insure your course will address them.

  • WHAT IS THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT?

    Would your learners attend any face to face classes? Do they access their course from home, work, or college? Do they work as a group or individuals?

Designing the Wheel: Built-in Instructional Technology

"Key Takeaways
> Most faculty members are not taught a systematic process to course design and, despite their subject expertise, might lack background in learning theory.

 

> Faculty can best adopt educational technology while designing or redesigning their course rather than retrofitting an existing course to include technology.

 

> A course design model can include practical application of theories, including best practices for instructional technology use."

The article is also supplemented with a bibliography of references to provide sources and further reading on the topic.

Making lectures and lessons more interactive with mQlicker

Making lectures and lessons more interactive with mQlicker | Learn to E-Learn #elearning #authoring #ple #sociallearning | Scoop.it

As the traditional lecture has come increasingly under fire for being completely out of touch with modern teaching and learning methods, there has been a move by many teachers, conference presenters and lecturers to make their teaching techniques more modern and interactive. One of the key technologies for enabling this has been a range of audience response systems that provide real time responses to polls, questions and surveys while the speakers is actually presenting.

Chwayita Ceejay January's insight:'

A very interesting tool, that teachers can use inside and outside the formal learning area. Where students can interact with the information live during the lecture (where most interaction should happen anyway) closing the 'cold and insigificant' student-lecturer relationship. Students can respond to the data while the lecture is in progress. As expensive and time-consuming (training) this intiative would be to udertake it would certainly improve lecture attedance. :D

EdX Releases Open Source Tool For Building Interactive MOOC Courseware -- Campus Technology

"

EdX has released source code to the general public that supports interactive learning built specifically for the Internet.

The nonprofit online learning platform founded by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has released XBlock SDK, the underlying architecture supporting EdX course content.

XBlocks are a prototype second-generation application programming interface for hierarchically combined EdX courseware components such as video players and learning sequences. The XBlock source code allows course developers to combine independent XBlocks to create engaging online courses such as wiki-based collaborative learning environments and online laboratories, or create integrated education tools such as a circuit simulator for an electronics course or a molecular manipulator for teaching biology.

Furthering its mission to be a true open-sourced learning platform, edX has invited the public to participate in the development of its interactive courseware for the massive open online course (MOOCs) platform by releasing the source code under the Affero GPL open source license. By collaborating with others during the prototype stage, edX hopes to develop the XBlock into an industry standard. EdX also plans to enlist the input of independent developers in extending the functionality of XBlock in future open source initiatives.

The XBlock source code is available now for download at github.com/edX/XBlock."

What are you focusing your learning on? 
When participating at a conference, listening to a lecture or simply trying to establish an essay structure, you want to be able to identify the “central topic”.  You want to know that which is essential for establishing the meaning of everything that follows after it.  In the process of focusing on the central topic, you can rely on your imagination or you can choose to be more practical and use a mind mapping app where you can:
