IT and Academics Don't Plan Together Much, New Survey Finds

IT and Academics Don't Plan Together Much, New Survey Finds | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

From the Campus Technology report: "Campus IT is a disjointed effort at most campuses. For example, in more than four out of five colleges and universities, IT professionals report that they do not regularly develop joint plans with academic departments for IT initiatives. These are some of the results that came out of a survey of 152 higher ed IT people in June by MeriTalk, a government-focused Web site."

And: "Nearly six out of 10 don't survey academic or research staff on IT needs; and more than six out of 10 lack a catalog of IT services. Perhaps that's why 57 percent of end users view IT as the 'fix it' folks and just 22 percent say IT is considered a 'trusted ally.'"


The survey itself can be downloaded from this website.

Opinion: Tablets Are a Fad — They’ll Largely Disappear in 2–3 Years

Opinion: Tablets Are a Fad — They’ll Largely Disappear in 2–3 Years | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it
The iPad came out of the Apple chute in 2010 like gangbusters, setting all kinds of sales records. Schools picked up on the iPad too. But the tablet is a fad, we argue; it will pass away in short order (two to three years) because it is neither a mobile device nor a work device – and folks (and schools, we should hope) want those two types of devices!

Via EDTC@UTB
Ulrike Grabe's insight:

"the implications for K-12 schools ... if our prediction about the tablets’ demise is right ... or wrong?

Possible Responses:

Schools and districts are rolling out iPads from kindergarten to grade 5, one grade per year. If we are right, then there may well be precious few tablets for those 4th and 5th graders!  It doesn’t matter whether we are right or wrong: schools are going BYOD — Bring Your Own Device, and thus it is students — and their parents — that will determine what devices are brought into the classroom.  It doesn’t matter whether we are right or wrong: Schools will come to see that, at least for K-5 or even K-8, smartphones — not tablets - are the appropriate learning tool. (Wheeling in the laptop cart when a long writing project is assigned.) One can always hope!"

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.

eLearning Start-ups: These Mistakes Will Make You Look Unprofessional | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it
You have most likely mastered the basics of instructional design already. Now it's time to learn an intimately related discipline called informat

 

Put simply, information design refers to the “the arrangement of organization models to provide context and meaning for the information.” It comprises of several disciplines: typography, illustration design, page design, graphics design, communications theory, cultural studies, psychology, and other technical and non-technical practices. The goal is always clarity of communication.

Disorganized Layout
Poor Color Choice
Not Integrating Words and Images Correctly
Forgetting About the Basics: Typography
Lack of Foundation
Too Much Jargon

9 Tips To Apply Adult Learning Theory to eLearning | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it
Apply Adult Learning Theory to eLearning. Applying Adult Learning Assumptions and Adult Learning Principles to eLearning. Apply Andragogy to eLearning!

Via EDTC@UTB
Ulrike Grabe's insight:

Assumption #1 (Self-Concept)
Create learning experiences that offer minimum instruction and maximum autonomy.

Assumption #2 (Adult Learner Experience)
Include a wide range of instructional design models and theories to appeal to varied experience levels and backgrounds.
Assumption #3 (Readiness to Learn)
Utilize social media and online collaboration tools to tie learning to social development.

Assumption #4 (Orientation to Learning)
Emphasize how the subject matter is going to solve problems that an adult learner regularly encounters.
Assumption #5 (Motivation to Learn)
There must be a valid reason behind every eLearning course, module or educational activity.


Principle of Andragogy#1
Adults must have a hand in the design and development of their learning experience.

Principle of Andragogy#2
Experience should be at the root of all eLearning tasks and activities.

Principle of Andragogy #3
Real life applications and benefits must be tied to the eLearning course.

Principle of Andragogy #4
Give adult learners the opportunity to absorb information, rather than memorizing it.

This is not surprising.  Apps come and go for young users of social media.  Snapchat is up and coming, Facebook is fading.  Maybe it's oldsters who keep the old apps and social media going.  But texting is just simple, clean, easy. Promotion coming:   If you or someone you know is going overseas, use WhatsApp - free texting on your phone for 1 year (.99 thereafter) without an international plan.

Teaching Students Skills to become Better Online Readers | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

Soon after Maryanne Wolf published “Proust and the Squid,” a history of the science and the development of the reading brain from antiquity to the twenty-first century, she began to receive letters from readers. Hundreds of them. While the backgrounds of the writers varied, a theme began to emerge: the more reading moved online, the less students seemed to understand."

Reading on line...a good habit? Here to stay?

Helen Teague's curator insight, August 3, 9:36 AM
Do students retain more information when they read from books rather than from digital devices? Does reading online present challenges due to distractions? Do students need to be taught skills to become better online readers?
Ruby Day's curator insight, August 3, 5:21 PM

Studies show we are not reading as effectively online as we are with hard copies. This highlights the need for tools to help us read deeper online - e.g annotation type tools. This links to an interesting stuy of year 5 students using collaborative annotation software demonstrating higher performance than the control group's' paper based annotation.

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).
