Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, May 30, 2013 2:52 AM

You want to make sure your writing portfolio achieves its objectives - if you're an author, that may be to get you a book deal. If you're a student, it's likely academic consideration and if you're a freelance journalist, it could be to get you an article commission. So think hard and be specific about what your portfolio should tell the people that come across it. Doing so will make drafting your copy and planning out the different sections much easier.

Common Objectives

To get a job - you'll be sending your portfolio to prospective employers or clients, so your main aim is to impress in the field you work in.

To sell - you've written some great stuff, and now you want to sell it to an agent, publisher or commissioner.

To be more visible - you want a place where people can find you online and learn more about what you do.

Once you know what the aim is, write that down somewhere. As you build your portfolio, every time you write a sentence or add a piece of work, ask yourself "does this addition help my objective?" If the answer if no, don't add it.

Wissensnetzwerke statt Medienkompetenz | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it
Kürzlich habe ich hier einen wichtigen Gedankengang von Danah Byod zusammengefasst: Das Misstrauen gegen Fachleute und ihre Expertise, zu ihre These, resultiert aus einer falsch verstandenen Vermittlung von Medienkompetenz. Reduziert bedeutet diese Vorstellung von kompetentem Umgang mit Medien (oder »media literacy«) der Zweifel an der Richtigkeit von Informationen, bis sie mit etwas anderem übereinstimmen. Dieses…

Four cautionary lessons about education technology

Four cautionary lessons about education technology | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it
There's good failure and there's dumb failure. The dumb failure we see over and over again is just dumping technology into schools and hoping for magic to happen; not having a plan, thinking that things will happen automatically because kids are “digital natives,” a term that obscures as much as it illuminates; thinking that just because technology is there your problem is solved."

10 highlights capture the big picture themes of educational change that underpin the 18 topics:

1 Advancing progressive learning approaches requires cultural transformation.
2 Real-world skills are needed to bolster employability and workplace development.
3 Collaboration is key for scaling effective solutions.
4 Despite the proliferation of technology and online learning materials, access is still unequal.
5 Processes for assessing nuanced skills at a personal level are needed
6 Fluency in the digital realm is more than just understanding how to use technology.
7 Online, mobile, and blended learning are foregone conclusions. 
8 Learning ecosystems must be agile enough to support the practices of the future.
9 Higher education is an incubator for developing more intuitive computers.
10 Lifelong learning is the lifeblood of higher education

Está claro que hay una abrumadora cantidad en la Red de bitácoras de profesores (lo que nos parece excelente) de mucha calidad, así que hemos intentado seguir un criterio eliminatorio. Tienes ante ti blogs de profesores (no blogs educativos de empresas, universidades o entidades formativas, eso lo dejamos para otra ocasión) que se actualizan con frecuencia, son para otros profesores y dan gran importancia al mundo de las TICs.

Why teachers need Formative Assessment too

Why teachers need Formative Assessment too | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it

When you saw the image above, it may have surprised you in some way.

If you’re a teacher, you may have instantly wondered if you would, should, or could do it, and I bet if you’re an administrator you probably wished your staff already did.

Reactions I’ve had from it so far include ‘how brave’ to ‘how crazy’ to ‘that’s inspired’ to ‘what a brown nose’. But the hyperbolic reactions don’t surprise me, because being observed, no matter what anyone says or desires to be true, still remains a teacher’s most hated part of teaching, and having someone actively seek it out is …..well, just hyperbolically irregular.

For a long time I preferred to be left alone in my classroom. Here’s why:

I was confident I was doing a good job.I was confident that I could self-identify issues if or when they arose.Having someone in the room made me a little nervous, and I felt slightly unnatural as I went about my craft.I thought what I was doing in the room could be judged out of context.
