scinexx | Erster Computer aus Kohlenstoff-Röhrchen: Rechner besitzt bereits 178 Transistoren und eine Art Betriebssystem | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

Ein echter Durchbruch: US-Forscher haben erstmals einen funktionstüchtigen Rechner ganz aus Kohlenstoff-Nanoröhrchen gebaut. Er kann rechnen, Ziffern sortieren und einfache Befehlssätze ausführen. Auf dem Computer mit 178 Transistoren aus Nanotubes läuft auch bereits eine Art simples Betriebssystem. Noch ist dieser erste Nanotube-Rechner zwar weniger leistungsstark als konventionelle Computer, er beweist aber, dass sich die winzigen Röhrchen grundsätzlich als Basis für Elektronik dieser Art eignen, wie die Forscher im Fachmagzin "Nature" berichten.

To Improve Student Performance, Start Thinking Like a Coach

To Improve Student Performance, Start Thinking Like a Coach | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it
I have a confession to make. I was wrong. You see, I once thought that teaching was lecturing, and I thought that because that is how my graduate mentors taught me to teach.

But I was wrong. Studies have shown that lecturing has little to do with teaching. A University of Maryland study found that right after a physics lecture, almost none of the students could answer the question: “What was the lecture you just heard about?” Another physics professor simply asked students about the material that he had presented only 15 minutes earlier, and he found that only ten percent showed any sign of remembering it (Freedman, 2012).

"With so much attention given to elearning today, the seemingly minor details start to take on a greater significance. Major universities are using elearning to deliver their courses to a larger audience, so it only makes sense that the smaller items are examined more closely. In particular, does color impact the effectiveness of training?"

"[T]he joined-up environment of the web encourages people to make connections and work things out, while straightforward reading encourages them to take in what’s on the page in front of them. Hence the prevalence of hyperlinks and multiple windows on computers could be seen as creating either unwelcome distraction or more opportunities for active learning." [more]

I love this picture, and the concept of the increasingly informal workplace will extend to the school. Question is: how does child development weigh in? 

LLZ Uni Halle's curator insight, May 13, 2:29 AM

"(...) Which leads me to consider a hybrid approach: using extrinsic motivators to drive the desired participant behaviour, which is consequently rewarded by an experience that is intrinsically motivating. In other words, scaffolding the informal learning process with a formal structure, thereby driving the behaviour that achieves the outcome that drives the behaviour.(...)"

Lernen in der Cloud: Was steckt heute dahinter?

Lernen in der Cloud: Was steckt heute dahinter? | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

“Corporate MOOCs will be the big trend in 2014” schrieb vor einigen Monaten der kanadische Bildungsexperte George Siemens. Ob es wirklich hierzulande ein „big trend“ ist, darüber mag man streiten. Doch MOOCs sind ein Thema auf Konferenzen und in Workshops und haben längst das Interesse vieler Unternehmen geweckt, die jetzt ihre Online-Angebote für Mitarbeiter, Partner und Kunden auf den Prüfstand stellen. Dabei sind MOOCs nur eine aktuelle Form des Lehrens und Lernens, mit der eine Antwort auf eine Reihe drängender Anforderungen verbunden wird. Die Rede ist von der Flexibilisierung und Virtualisierung der Arbeit, von immer kürzeren Produktzyklen, von Innovationsdruck, Vernetzung, vom technologischen und demografischen Wandel und, nicht zuletzt, Kostendruck.

Vor diesem Hintergrund wächst der Druck auf Corporate Learning, Programme, Angebote und Leistungen entsprechend anzupassen. Längst ist deutlich, dass das Lernen in der Cloud aus einem zukunftsfähigen und innovativen Portfolio nicht mehr wegzudenken ist. Doch von E-Learning wird bereits seit 1998 gesprochen, als Jay Cross, so wird kolportiert, das erste Mal den Begriff nutzte, um das netzgestützte Lernen zu beschreiben. Was also ist neu, wenn wir heute auf das Lernen in der Cloud blicken? Hier ein Überblick über die wichtigsten Trends:

An Excellent New Feature for Google Docs ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

A few days ago Google released a few interesting updates to its Drive applications. One important update that I want to share with you today is called "Suggested Edits". This new feature is great for collaborative work on Google Docs. Before, when you share a Google document with your collaborators and grant them the editing rights they can edit anything in it. But with "Suggested Edits" you, as the owner of the document, can control this editing process by allowing collaborators to make only suggestions which you can either accept or reject. This new feature is not available on Google Docs for mobile.
