Time to Start Making: Free Design Programs for 3D Printers

Time to Start Making: Free Design Programs for 3D Printers | Education | Scoop.it
One of the biggest tech trends to follow is the evolution of 3D printing -- not just in the consumer market, but also in education. But to use 3D printers, students will need to learn how to design using digital programs.

New Research Effort Aims to Examine Effectiveness of MOOCs

New Research Effort Aims to Examine Effectiveness of MOOCs | Education | Scoop.it

"As more and more colleges experiment with massive open online courses, or MOOCs, a new project hopes to cut through the hype and gauge the effectiveness of the courses. The MOOC Research Initiative, financed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will award grants of $10,000 to $25,000 to researchers seeking to explore issues such as student experiences in MOOCs and the free courses’ systemic impact."

We can't equate a MOOC with a traditional academic course. MOOCs should be evaluated through their unique characteristics.

Sarah Oliver's curator insight, October 24, 2013 10:02 PM

This article explains the grants being awarded by the Gates' and how the aim is the hear from the students and faculty themselves, not just hear about how conceptually innovative they (MOOCs) are.

I think the more interesting part of this method, despite the headline, is the 3d head movement in a medium that does not require building supports as part of the process. I'm curious as to how users will find it practically different.

27 Ways To Be A 21st Century Teacher

27 Ways To Be A 21st Century Teacher | Education | Scoop.it

"

You can’t swing an iPad in the hallway without hitting someone talking about becoming a 21st century teacher, 21st century student, or something involving the 21st century. While I personally am quite over that term, it fits and makes sense. I guess. (Personally, I think a better term is ‘modern’ teacher or ‘connected’ teacher rather than just stating that someone exists within this century. Kinda vague, no?)

So what does it take to become a 21st century teacher? Quite simply, it’s a little more than integrating the computer lab into the classroom. In fact, classrooms should look nothing like a computer lab that we’ve come to know and instead should resemble a set of grouped students collaborating, learning with each other, and having a ‘guide on the side’ teacher who helps steer the proverbial ship.

Think you got the chops to become a 21st century teacher, a modern teacher, or at least an educator who has a classroom of engaged students? Use this handy chart to find more than two dozen ways to become the teacher you’ve always known you could be. Most of the ways are briefly explained but that’s kinda the beauty of the whole chart. You can take the sentence or two and turn it into a new teaching process that others may not already use. For example, the term ‘collaborate’ (see below) could mean just about anything to a modern teacher. Collaborate via Skype? Collaborate to try out Project-Based Learning? Collaborate to grow your PLN? The sky is the limit! In fact, these days we talk about space so much that the sky is not the limit.

Have I gotten you excited enough to start taking your own great leap into the world of modern education? I hope so. Shoot for the moon, you might hit a star. If not, use this infographic-y visual as a guide to becoming a modern teacher. If you are already one, pass this along to your friends and colleagues to make sure they’re becoming one too.

What ways would you add to this visual? Want a print-friendly PDF? Click here. Also, check out the great blog by Mia MacMeekin who made this chart!"

The corridor of uncertainty: Prepare to be MOOPhD

The corridor of uncertainty: Prepare to be MOOPhD | Education | Scoop.it

With Georgia Tech offering a degree programme in MOOC-format (or at least as an online degree) the next step in the process must surely be massive open online research. A fascinating article byJon Dron of Athabasca University, MOOCs are so unambitious: introducing the MOOPhD takes up precisely this challenge; a massive open online PhD. It's not such a crazy idea but there are many important considerations and limitations.
