The video began with a two-and-a-half minute segment of a fuzzy puppet waking up in a dorm room and then rushing across the Harvard Yard to get to this class. It wasn’t some generic puppet — it was a Muppet; apparently the dorm is around the corner from Sesame Street. And the rock-star lecture was delivered from the stage of what looked like a packed opera house, complete with props, multiple camera angles, wireless mikes and professional editing.

 

My virtual classroom, on the other hand, was my home office, with me sitting in front of my iMac’s built-in camera talking into a cheap microphone. The contrast just shows, I guess, what that $60,000 a year buys those Harvard kids.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, May 25, 5:16 PM

Steve Doig does a fine job of capturing his Harvard EdX learning experience. More important he shares what he's learned in a light hearted, detailed, and practical manner. 


I was skeptical. I thought the title promised a bit much. However, I'm glad I read this article. It gives very sound advice on fundamental aspects of course design.  


If you're interested in creating and integrating video lectures into your online designs, this is a good place to start.

Visible Thinking: Connect, Extend Challenge Routine

Visible Thinking:  Connect, Extend Challenge Routine | EdTech Innovative Discovery | Scoop.it

I am planning a lesson for next week.  I think I will use the Connect, Extend and Challenge routine after our conversation around relationships.  The routine helps students make connections between new ideas and prior knowledge. It also encourages them to reflect upon ongoing questions, puzzles and difficulties as they think about what they are learning.

Two Contrasting Views of Educational Technology

Two Contrasting Views of Educational Technology | EdTech Innovative Discovery | Scoop.it

The final thing that strikes me about these two videos is how they reflect the kinds of societies that the system of education seeks to create. For me the first is a society of obedient unquestioning worker drones being spoon fed information that will enable them to fulfil their predefined roles. The second is a society in which individuals are encouraged to think, act and explore, to question and to create. I know which I would prefer to live in.

5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads (And How To Correct Them)

5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads (And How To Correct Them) | EdTech Innovative Discovery | Scoop.it
Over the last few years K-12 schools and districts across the country have been investing heavily in iPads for classroom use. EdTechTeacher has been leading iPad professional development at many of these schools and we’ve seen firsthand how they approach iPad integration.

 

While we’ve witnessed many effective approaches to incorporating iPads successfully in the classroom, we’re struck by the common mistakes many schools are making with iPads, mistakes that are in some cases crippling the success of these initiatives. We’re sharing these common challenges with you, so your school doesn’t have to make them.
