Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology

Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology | education | Scoop.it

Online education arguably came of age in the last year, with the explosion of massive open online courses driving the public's (and politicians') interest in digitally delivered courses and contributing to the perception that they represent not only higher education's future, but its present. Faculty members, by and large, still aren't buying -- and they are particularly skeptical about the value of MOOCs, Inside Higher Ed's new Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology suggests.

Classrooms for Active Learning

Classrooms for Active Learning | education | Scoop.it

How do you make a classroom more engaging for both the student and the instructor? No learning space is more in need of fresh design thinking than the classroom. Everyone agrees it’s time to reconsider a new classroom paradigm where technology and the physical space are integrated to support pedagogy and create a more active and engaging experience for instructors and students.

Lauren Yachera's curator insight, March 11, 2014 4:44 PM
I really liked some of the ideas that were presented in this article. One of my goals in the future will be to create a warm, nurturing, and comfortable classroom for my students. I want them to feel encouraged and supported while they do their work, and the tips given in the reading will help me to do so. One thing that I really liked is #4- "The Classroom Canvas." I think it would be really interesting to have a classroom that is largely blank at the beginning of the year, and have the teacher and students work together in order to create an environment that they envision a perfect room to be like. This could be an activity that could be worked on within the first week or two of school, over a few months, or even over the whole year. It allows for relationships to form and strengthen through the collaboration and shared brain power between everyone involved. Together, everyone in the classroom can create a space that will facilitate the procedures and lessons involved in PBL, all while allowing the students to express themselves. It also allows for change- if students or the teacher wants to switch somethings up, the classroom is flexible enough to do that.
Lauren Portalea's curator insight, March 27, 2014 11:53 AM

I loved the idea of the "Etch a Sketch Classroom." This idea steams from the toy that allows you to draw something and quickly erase it. In relation to a classroom, a teacher can set up the environment a certain way then completely change it. The blog describes the importance of having a blank canvas with many whiteboards, interactive whiteboards, and other blank slates. This allows teachers to use the space in versatile ways. Having a classroom that can fluctuate with the curriculum is essential for PBL. If the students need to work in groups, design an experiment, listen to directions, or other schoolwork, the blank canvas classroom can easily change shape to accommodate the present needs.

Yenoch Ng's curator insight, March 31, 2014 6:11 PM

Classroom Climate Plan REVISED:

Many of these ideas for classroom spaces contribute to providing a physical and social environment that focuses on the mission of the whole child. For example, the disciplinary decor, graphic organizers, and learning tools provide tools and strategies students can use to learn and complete academic tasks. It allows students to chose the types of resources they want to use and chose it in an organized manner. On the other hand, the classroom canvas and student hall of fame help nurture a learning community where it encourages students to get to know and care for one another. Subsequently, the classroom canvas and student hall should have students develop the habit of asking for help and helping others in the learning process. It is critical for students to build a learning community to help one another solve problems, be creative, and work with one another in many tasks such as project-based learning.

Flipped Classroom: Beyond the Videos by Doug Woods

Flipped Classroom: Beyond the Videos by Doug Woods | education | Scoop.it

Too often the conversation surrounding the flipped classroom focuses on the videos- creating them, hosting them, and assessing student understanding of the content via simple questions or summary assignments.

 

I wish the conversation focused more on what actually happens in a flipped classroom. If we move lecture or the transfer of knowledge online to create time and space in the physical classroom, how are we using that time to improve learning for students? What is our role as the teacher in the flipped classroom? How are we maximizing the potential of the group when students are together to design collaborative, creative, student-centered activities and assignments? This is the part I want to hear more about!
