6 Ways Social Media Will Change Your Classroom -

6 Ways Social Media Will Change Your Classroom - | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Technology is changing the world at a rapid pace, and education isn’t exempt from the effects of that. Social media, in particular, is one of the greatest influences of our time — not just on young people, but on culture in general — encouraging social connections and enabling the exchange of thoughts and information on a global scale.

And although it has its drawbacks (peer pressure, bullying, access to questionable content, and its addictive nature, to name a few), there are also tremendous benefits when it comes to social networks — and let’s face it, they’re not going anywhere.

Stephen's Web ~ Our eyes are drawn to meaning, not shiny objects

Stephen's Web ~ Our eyes are drawn to meaning, not shiny objects | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
We're looking at something, a display in a classroom or video, say. "How do we decide where to direct our attention, without thinking about it?" Well, we don't 'decide', because that just is a cognitive process. But our attention is directed. To what? Bright and shiny things? Not so much. The right answer is 'salience', which in this article is depicted as 'meaningful'. Something is salient if it is important or connected to what is happening or being discussed (see a much deeper account of this in Stalnaker's Thesis in Context). Sadly the paper cited in this short article is behind a paywall, but you can find similar work by the same author in this paper on scan patterns. Of course, some of these principles have been old saws in graphic design for decades. See also here and here for the same content as repeated in Futurity (the original source is probably the publisher's marketing department).

Moodle Mobile 3.3.2 Lets You Slide And Scroll Like Never Before

Moodle Mobile 3.3.2 Lets You Slide And Scroll Like Never Before | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
The mobile companion for the recently launched Moodle 3.3.2 is available for download at your nearest app store. It brings few new features, as the team focused on getting right parts of the experience that were beginning to frustrate some users.

One of the main goods Moodle Mobile 3.3.2 brings is an enhancement in page scrolling. When the answers on a multiple choice question came with a video, scrolling down did not always work properly and sometimes lower options were inaccessible. This, as well as most of the other fixes, are the work of Moodle HQ’s Daniel Palou.

For some devices running on iOS 10, the sliding function of the media player was nonresponsive no matter how hard you pressed that little positioning circle. Moodle Mobile 3.3.2 comes with the issue resolved.

Higher Learning Commission - Collection of Papers on Quality in Higher Education

 

"Established in 1895, the Higher Learning Commission accredits college and university institutions in nineteen states. The Commission hosts an annual conference that invites participating institutions to speak on the accreditation process, as well as best practices for institutional administration, curriculum, and pedagogy. A collection of papers is published from each annual conference - the link above takes visitors to an organized collection of papers from 2016, which can be browsed by category. Individual paper topics include: developing meaningful assessments with limited resources, using social media to engage institutional stakeholders, and developing a "graduate experience" in two-year master's programs. These papers are authored by professionals at public universities, private four-year colleges, and two-year colleges. Additionally, visitors can explore archived collections of papers dating back to 2013 in the Archives tab."

Stephen's Web ~ Member States to Commission: We don’t trust your claims that censorship filters are in line with EU law | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Communia is a IP policy organization based in Europe. It advocates for limits to copyright and fairer terms for users. For example, Communia recommends that "any false or misleading attempt to misappropriate Public Domain material must be declared unlawful." In the current instance it is expressing concern about what it calls "censorship filters", aka "upload filters". These require that content hosting sites prevent the actual uploading of copyright material before it ever appears on the open web. It reports that the EU Council is expressing support for this idea. And it reports that member states don't trust such laws to respect existing laws protecting individual privacy and security.

Stephen's Web ~ Heuristics and Web Skills Acquisition in Open Learning Environments

Stephen's Web ~ Heuristics and Web Skills Acquisition in Open Learning Environments | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
"Many of the frameworks... do not take into consideration the social practices governing the use and writing on the web." The frameworks are conceptually defined and focused on finding and consuming rather than creating and communicating. "The classical approach to digital literacy is the reference framework for web literacy. This approach assumes that digital skills are useful in order for people to be capable of selecting, analyzing, processing, organizing, and transforming information into knowledge based on context and personal and social needs. We believe that this approach is excessively instrumental. This is because it does not take into account the new competencies the web offers for people to be active in constructing new pathways for social participation and, especially, learning." Exactly right.

The Evidence Base for How We Learn: Supporting Students’ Social, Emotional, and Academic Development - The Aspen Institute | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"The Evidence Base for How We Learn: Supporting Students’ Social, Emotional, and Academic Development articulates the scientific consensus regarding how people learn. The research brief presents a set of consensus statements—developed and unanimously signed onto by the Commission’s Council of Distinguished Scientists—that affirm the interconnectedness of social, emotional, and academic development as central to the learning process.

"The brief draws from brain science, medicine, economics, psychology, and education research to describe why it is essential to address the social, emotional, and cognitive dimensions of learning; how these dimensions together shape students’ academic and life outcomes; and how these competencies can be taught throughout childhood, adolescence, and beyond. The evidence outlined in this brief moves the nation beyond the debate as to whether schools should attend to students’ social and emotional development, to how schools can integrate social, emotional, and academic development into their daily work."

HOW COMMUNITIES OF INQUIRY DRIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING IN THE DIGITAL AGE


Via Ana Cristina Pratas

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, October 5, 6:02 AM

"The development of communities of inquiry, highly engaged in the cocreation, discovery and development of knowledge, capabilities and skills, is enabled by learning management systems, collaborative platforms and social-constructivist teaching activities (Garrison, Anderson & Archer, 2000, 2001a, 2001b; Garrison & Anderson, 2003). This paper explores the current state of communities of inquiry (COI) in teaching and learning in the digital age, including the technology to support learner presence (Shea & Bidjerano, 2010) and personal learning environments. It also argues for the communities of inquiry model to evolve into a learning model, that recognizes the importance of motivation, self-efficacy and personal skills in effective communities of inquiry.

 

The paper addresses five key questions examined through the lens of the Community of Inquiry Model:

 

• What skills and abilities need to be developed for teachers and learners to fully leverage the power of communities of inquiry? What are the prerequisites for effective learning?

 

• What are we learning from the growth of peer-to-peer learning and peer assessment which supports the power of communities of inquiry?

 

• What can emerging technology approaches to adaptive learning and adaptive assessment bring to the practice of communities of inquiry?

 

• What are the known best practices and emergent next practices for communities of inquiry?

 

• What are examples of communities of inquiry in action from a variety of settings around the world?"

Supporting Students' Social, Emotional, and Academic Development: The Evidence Base for How We Learn

"Major domains of human development—social, emotional, cognitive, linguistic, academic—are deeply intertwined in the brain and in behavior, and all are central to learning.

 

"These skills can be grouped into three interconnected domains: (1) cognitive skills including executive functions such as working memory, attention control and flexibility, inhibition, and planning, as well as beliefs and attitudes that guide one’s sense of self and approaches to learning and growth; (2) emotional competencies that enable one to cope with frustration, recognize and manage emotions, and understand others’ emotions and perspectives; and (3) social and interpersonal skills that enable one to read social cues, navigate social situations, resolve interpersonal conflicts, cooperate with others and work effectively in a team, and demonstrate compassion and empathy toward others.

 

"Drawing on evidence from a range of disciplines and perspectives, it is clear that social and emotional skills and competencies develop in a complex system of contexts, interactions, and relationships.iv Therefore, it is important for organizations to take a systems approach to promoting development in these areas— addressing adult skills and beliefs; organizational culture, climate, and norms; and routines and structures that guide basic interactions and instruction. As described in greater detail below, such approaches are most effective when designed to match the needs and contexts of specific organizations and communities."
