Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 9, 2013 12:20 PM

Online learning in its current iterations will fail.

The failure of online education programs is not logistical, nor political, nor economic: it’s cultural, rooted in our perspectives and biases about how learning happens and how the internet works (these things too often seen in opposition). For learning to change drastically -- a trajectory suggested but not yet realized by the rise of MOOCs -- teaching must change drastically. And in order for that to happen, we must conceive of the activity of teaching, as an occupation and preoccupation, in entirely new and unexpected ways. We must unseat ourselves, unnerve ourselves. Online learning is uncomfortable, and so educators must become uncomfortable in their positions as teachers and pedagogues. And the administration of online programs must follow suit.

It’s important for us to be very specific about what we mean by failure. There are two kinds of failure we want to discuss here. The first kind of failure -- an improper failure -- does damage, breeds limitations, shuts down critical thinking, and disengages us from our pedagogical or learning processes. Our ethical commitment to students and the enterprise of education is too strong to abide this kind of failure.

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom | EdTech | Scoop.it

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency...

Las infografías son una herramienta muy útil por su factor visual: en poco espacio y de forma visulamente agradable y atrayente, engloba datos y relaciona conceptos.

Prezi isn't the only challenger of Keynote / Powerpoint any longer. Bunkr looks interesting, but I worry if this is not further transforming us into a cut'n'paste culture.

Thanks, Matt. I believe that it is therapeutic to hear voices of dissent, lest we hear only our own echoes.
Matt Judd's comment, May 2, 2013 11:35 AM
I'm glad I read this article and it presents some hurdles of online education vs. problems. One area which is short-sighted is forgetting to address international implications. Online education is a virtual "Pandora's Box" and could reap huge rewards outside the US, where, in some countries, need to achieve is very high.
Chris Carter's comment, May 2, 2013 9:58 PM
Agreed, yet these very countries (I rside in Shanghai, China) will shut down MOOCs soon, until they can produce their own, government vetted, versions. At that point, country-specific MOOCs will take off again. At least, this is what I believe will happen, given past experience.

Great for critical thinking because in twitter you only have so many characters so you will have to decide what is the important info you are trying to say in limited space...

 

Here are some examples for Hashtag usage in the classroom.

1. Class Discussions

2. Use them to aggregate discussion on content

3. Use them as a class messaging system

4. Use them for mentoring

5. Keep them brief

6. Create them early

7. Be strategic
