10 Types Of Writing For eLearning: The eLearning Coach: Instructional Design and eLearning

10 Types Of Writing For eLearning: The eLearning Coach: Instructional Design and eLearning | Everything PLC | Scoop.it

Not only do we need skills for expository, creative, persuasive and technical writing, but we often write about topics for which we know very little at first. Furthermore, our writing is expected to be motivating while clearly delivering concepts, procedures and facts.
Here you’ll find some brief guidelines that focus on each type of writing. Much of this writing is done in storyboards, so I didn’t include writing for storyboards as a separate type. What other types of writing for eLearning can you think of?

deniseroberts's insight:

Reading this article presented several different ways of looking at writing lesson plans.  In BCPS PLCs, teacher teams use the C.A.R.E. cycle which, in essence, gives a team an overview of a lesson they will implement with the students.  I enjoy reading about how teachers can re-enter this process from a variety of angles.

deniseroberts's insight:

As a worker in a very "open" environment, I concur with everything stated in this article.  We collect data on a daily, weekly and monthly basis and sometimes it can be misconstrued as evaluative instead of used to improve our work practices.  A very informative article if your organization is moving towards more transparent work environment.

The Teacher's Guide To Badges In Education | Edudemic

The Teacher's Guide To Badges In Education | Edudemic | Everything PLC | Scoop.it
Unfortunately, some students are not motivated by grades. Yes, this includes your brightest kids. Some kids could get an A on any test you give them, so they do not see the need for homework. Why do an hour of work every night when they know they are going to get an A on the test? Now you have a student who gets Fs on all his homework and As on all his tests. It turns into a C average, and he doesn’t care. How do you motivate him to do more or do better? The old-fashioned way – you give him a badge.

Creative Ways To Use Skype In The Classroom

The answer: in more ways than you could imagine. While Skype was not designed as an educational tool, it’s quickly becoming one as teachers discover the many ways it enriches their lessons and the lives of their students. Even something as simple as hosting a guest speaker through a video call can add excitement to a lesson.

As with any tech tool, it can seem daunting to introduce this into your classroom at first. If you don’t know where to start, try one of these five creative ideas.

Kelly's curator insight, February 23, 11:00 PM

While Skype offers an additional option, it is limited by the 1:1 connection (unless you pay for an upgraded version) as well as the inability to screenshare, etc. However, it may be a very good option when looking at international connections and low-cost alternatives and should not be summarily dismissed.
