Princeton University Press Blog » Ethnography and Virtual Worlds is virtually everywhere | Educational Technology and Sustainability | Scoop.it

As our existence and interactions have grown increasingly virtual, the arena has rapidly evolved into a new frontier for human life, with many of the complexities, cultural nuances and and social problems of the ‘real’ world. Several years ago, anthropologist Tom Boellstorff, arguably the first anthropologist to study this realm in its rich complexity, published his breakthrough fieldwork in Coming of Age in Second Life: An Anthropologist Explores the Virtually Human. Now he has coauthored, along with Bonnie Nardi, Celia Pearce, and T.L. Taylor, Ethnography and Virtual Worlds: A Handbook of Method, the first ever guidebook for conducting ethnography in virtual worlds, and the book is getting a ton of attention in the blogosphere.

Teaching & Learning - Brain-Based Online Learning Design - Magna Publications | Educational Technology and Sustainability | Scoop.it

Abreena Tompkins, instruction specialist at Surry Community College, has developed a brain-based online course design model based on a meta-analysis of more than 300 articles. In this study, she distilled the following elements of brain-based course design:

Low-risk, nonthreatening learning environment Challenging, real-life, authentic assessments Rhythms, patterns, and cycles Appropriate chunking or grouping Learning as orchestration rather than lecture or facilitation Appropriate level of novelty Appropriately timed breaks and learning periods Purposeful assessments Learning that addresses visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners Active processing with mental models The use of universal examples, analogies, and parallel processing

An infographic I created for a MOOC at Stanford: Designing New Learning Environments. Made with too little space, too little skills, too little time and too little research. Lots of fun though.

Interesting take on a few forms of curation that can be used.  Infographic is, as the creator remarked, a little crowded, however the information is useful.

The Six Ingredients That Make eLearning Courses Relevant

The Six Ingredients That Make eLearning Courses Relevant | Educational Technology and Sustainability | Scoop.it
If you want to create engaging eLearning courses you should start considering one main factor: relevance. This means creating compelling courses that speak directly to your audience.

 

In eLearning, creating relevant and meaningful experiences for your target audience has always been the best way to capture learners. On the contrary, if your learners have no interest in your course, the information you have sent will convey very little value and success...

Polo 'tech', Recife vira 'Índia brasileira'

Produção de software e empregos do "call center" conferem à cidade título de maior parque tecnológico do país

Multinacionais se fixam na cidade para atender não só o mercado local mas também o mundo.

A concentração de empresas de software e telemarketing em Recife tem crescido tanto que a cidade já começa a ser chamada de "Índia brasileira", em alusão ao país asiático que se destaca nos dois setores.

As áreas, porém, diferem em mão de obra e salário. Enquanto a de software paga melhor, mas exige qualificação, a de telemarketing remunera mal, mas é a chance de o jovem conseguir seu primeiro emprego.

A indústria do "call center" não exige experiência e já emprega mais que montadoras.

As empresas dos setores se reúnem no Porto Digital, polo no Recife cuja produção lhe rendeu o título de maior parque tecnológico do Brasil.

Connectivism as Epistemology

Thoughts by Stephen Dowes about Connectivism:

 

"Connectivism is *definitively* a learning theory, or more accurately, incorporates learning theories (specifically, theories about how connections are formed in networks). It suggests some teaching theories (I have capsulized them as 'to teach is to model and demonstrate' and suggested that connectivism argues for the creation of an immersive learning environment)."
