Like Dropbox For TV, Chromecast Changes The Game

Like Dropbox For TV, Chromecast Changes The Game | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

Chromecast, a thumbdrive-sized dongle that jacks into a TV or projector's HDMI port, lets you take over a screen with your computer or mobile device. It's been called "magical" by various gadget reviewers (a term generally reserved for Apple devices), and it sold out instantaneously last week after Google announced it at an event in San Francisco.

Instructor’s Challenge: Moving Student beyond Opinions to Critical Thinking | Faculty Focus

Instructor’s Challenge: Moving Student beyond Opinions to Critical Thinking | Faculty Focus | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it
Critical thinking is defined as a reflective and reasonable thought process embodying depth, accuracy, and astute judgment to determine the merit of a decision, an object, or a theory (Alwehaibi, 2012). Creative thinking involves analysis, evaluation, and a synthesizing of facts, ideas, opinions, and theories. Possessing the capacity to logically and creatively exercise in-depth judgment and reflection to work effectively in the realm of complex ideas exemplifies a critical thinker (Carmichael & Farrell, 2012).

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, July 30, 2013 2:24 PM

I had a banner on my classroom wall for years. It read: "Learn how to think!"


In the conservative backwaters of Nevada this was considered a radical approach.  I even had a parent rant at me, "How dare you teach my child to challenge authority!"  


Still I persisted and can now smile knowing I've helped some of my students on the road to critical thinking.   


Is critical thinking a subversive activity in your school?  If so, be subversive! 

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, July 31, 2013 9:31 AM

Good reading for anyone who works with students.

I have no doubt that online education is going to get better over time, and that innovators at places like edX and Udacity will find ways to better combine labor and technology in ways that will help contain higher education costs.

In Connectivism, No One Can Hear You Scream: a Guide to Understanding the MOOC Novice | Open Education | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it
Hybrid Pedagogy is an academic and networked journal of learning, teaching, and technology that combines the strands of critical pedagogy and digital pedagogy to arrive at the best social and civil uses of technology and digital media in education.
Ulrike Grabe's insight:

From the text: "One of the most important aspects of the learning experience is motivation. And one of the most important aspects of motivation is our sense of our own capability, and our sense that the enviroment we are learning in will allow us to achieve."

#gcmuc (3): Gamification - was schiefgehen kann, oder gar keine Gamification ist

#gcmuc (3): Gamification - was schiefgehen kann, oder gar keine Gamification ist | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it
Beim GameCamp München 2013 hab ich eine Menge interessanter Anregungen zu Gamification mitgenommen - die ich gern teilen möchte. So viele, dass ich sie gar nicht alle zum gleichen Zeitpunkt veröffe...

 

Ein typisches Missverständnis ist wohl, dass die meisten Menschen bei Gamification zuallererst an PBL (Points, Badges and Leaderboards / Punkte, Auszeichnungen und Ranglisten) denken. PBL ist ein Bestandteil von Gamification, aber ohne weitere Elemente, die menschliche Bedürfnisse aufgreifen, macht PBL allein kein Gamification aus.

Social Networking in the 1600s

Social Networking in the 1600s | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

LONDON — SOCIAL networks stand accused of being enemies of productivity. According to one popular (if questionable) infographic circulating online, the use of Facebook, Twitter and other such sites at work costs the American economy $650 billion each year. Our attention spans are atrophying, our test scores declining, all because of these “weapons of mass distraction.”

Yet such worries have arisen before. In England in the late 1600s, very similar concerns were expressed about another new media-sharing environment, the allure of which seemed to be undermining young people’s ability to concentrate on their studies or their work: the coffeehouse. It was the social-networking site of its day.

Peer assessment may lead to better learning outcomes. In his Human Computer Interface course, Scott Klemmer of th HCI Group found that students can be put to work reviewing their cohorts.
Ulrike Grabe's insight:

from the text: "If my experience is any indication, students seem to be willing to do more of the heavy lifting when they benefit from the examples of their peers. Given that MOOCs are often criticized for their lack of student engagement, peer assessments could be a breakthrough that validates their mass scale."

The Four Phases of Effective eLearning: an Indispensable Guide for Instructors | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

"Learning starts with real-world problems. Students should be able to relate to problems and tasks they can handle. Many course developers are guilty of introducing learners to problems that are either irrelevant or too complex. Try to avoid this by starting with a simple problem and moving towards complex yet manageable tasks. Also, make sure that students see tangible benefits from having these problems solved. Consider these questions when you create activities surrounding the problem."

What We Can Expect From The Next Decade Of Technology

What We Can Expect From The Next Decade Of Technology | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

This new era of computing will be different than anything we’ve seen before. Technology will cease to be something we turn on and off, but will become an inextricable part of not only our environment, but ourselves. It is a future that is both utopian and dystopian (depending on your perspective), in that the human experience will change dramatically.
