6 virtual field trips to give lesson plans a boost

6 virtual field trips to give lesson plans a boost | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"One of the benefits of technology is the access it provides those in the classroom. There is now access to data on students before they ever enter classrooms, to curriculums from multiple companies, to stellar lesson plans, and to in-depth videos, articles, and photo galleries on numerous subjects. These resources can be used to take students on "virtual" field trips from the comfort of the classroom. For schools facing tight budgets, or just not feasibly close enough to a location of interest, these trips are valuable opportunities to expand students' horizons."

Technology as Barrier to Online Learning

Technology as Barrier to Online Learning | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"The xMOOC model that emerged in 2012 has not changed much in 2014, with completion rates and participation rates just as low as they were when concrete data on completion rates appeared in 2013 (Parr, 2013). Though there are a variety of factors that contribute to low completion rates, I suggest that three barriers, 1) technology, 2) poor usability & course design, and 3) anonymity contribute significantly to low student participation levels and completion—barriers that deter, discourage and in some cases intimidate students."
