Taking An Online Course: Lessons Learned

Taking An Online Course: Lessons Learned | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it

While I am in the early stages of planning my online course, I am also in the middle of taking two of them! It made me wonder how many people who teach online courses have gotten the opportunity to take one? We've all taken plenty of face to face classes for years on end. …


Via Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.
Becky Roehrs's insight:

I've taken many classes (short) online to find out more about a topic, but also to find out how other instructors teach a topic-especially if it's a topic I teach or want to teach in the future...I don't see how you could teach online without first taking an online course.. Yikes!

Noam Chomsky on the Dangers of Standardized Testing

Noam Chomsky on the Dangers of Standardized Testing | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it

"The assessment itself is completely artificial. It’s not ranking teachers in accordance with their ability to help develop children who will reach their potential, explore their creative interests. Those things you’re not testing.. it's a rank that’s mostly meaningless. And the very ranking itself is harmful.

The technology is a huge gadget in the 21 century and it is for that reason that all the teachers implemented this resource in their classes in order to promote the collaborative work , no matter the age.

Ah, how we love our learning styles..I learned about the learning styles myth a number of years ago (yes, it's still good practice to offer lots of variety in materials) and I remembered that growing up, I mainly learned by rote, the most boring way to learn (IMO)...but the learning pyramid I hadn't seen or heard of but it does seem to simplify the learning process!
