10 ways MOOCs have forced Universities into a rethink

10 ways MOOCs have forced Universities into a rethink | EduInfo | Scoop.it

MOOCs have made us think. As one of the most fascinating developments in higher education in my lifetime, they are,in many ways, a pioneer of a more ‘open’ spirit in learning. I’d contend that MOOCs, for all their promises and faults, have been at their most effective in forcing a rethink in Higher Education.

"A lot of people when they think about virtual anything, they do make that comparison of say an Amazon.com versus a Barnes & Nobles. We at Khan Academy never viewed it that way. We view the virtual as something that can empower the physical, that if students can get lectures at their own time and pace, they can get exercises, they can have a programming platform. That doesn’t mean that the classroom gets replaced, the classroom gets liberated. It doesn’t have to be about a lecture anymore, students don’t have to learn at the same time and pace."

In an ICT integrated society, it is important that people are information literate. That means being able to search for and analyse information for their benefits. As websites on the Internet become more popular teachers need to teach their students the right skills and knowledge so that their students are able to become information literate. Any guide therefore, that will assist teachers in doing so is worth using as a resource as reference for both teachers and students to use.

real textbooks in real shopping carts ... so *that's* where the metaphor comes from! Yesterday the World Bank hosted a great discussion related to strategies for tackling the high cost and low availability of textbooks, with a specific focus on needs and contexts across Sub-Saharan Aftrica. This event served as the Washington, DC launch for a World Bank publication which debuted last year at an event in Cote d'Ivoire, Getting Textbooks to Every Child in Sub-Saharan Africa: Strategies for Addressing the High Cost and Low Availability Problem. (Those interested in the topic of 'textbooks in Africa' more generally may also wish to have a look at a companion book published by the World Bank in 2015, Where Have All the Textbooks Gone? Toward Sustainable Provision of Teaching and Learning Materials in Sub-Saharan Africa.) As a complement to yesterday's discussions, a number of posts related to the use of digital teaching and learning materials that have appeared on the World Bank's EduTech blog have been collected here, to make them easier to find, and in case making them available in this way can help in a small way to help enrich any related conversations. (Please note that additional links will be added to this page over time as relevant related posts appear on the blog.) ---

VThe analysis of such situations shows that effective eLearning can take the best from traditional education and even surpass it. Modern learning tools should allow instructors and students to create, edit, and comment on all presented materials. This will encourage discussion and keep everybody updated on the latest news. Webinars and instant messages in chats are especially necessary in the corporate sector, for example when new products are put on the market and the first hands-on experiences are highly valued

The Digital Writing Process

The Digital Writing Process | EduInfo | Scoop.it

Now, with nearly 20 years of middle and high school teaching behind me, I still respect the writing process approach and its benefits. I also recognize that the nature of writing has changed tremendously over those two decades due to the significant influence of digital tools and sources. Of course, today’s composers still must meet the commonly accepted conventions of the genre in which they are engaged, but our visual digital culture creates different demands than did the primarily print text-based world.

Nevertheless, its very important to learn how to write properly, this article provides the tools and the practice we need.

Flipped Learning: Using online video to transform learning :: Nesta

Flipped Learning: Using online video to transform learning :: Nesta | EduInfo | Scoop.it
Digital technology is allowing teachers and learners to explore new approaches to traditional school lessons. The growing availability of online instructional videos creates the opportunity to move the learning of new content to outside of the classroom, freeing up class time for teachers to coach, and students to actively work on developing their own understanding.

Nesta and NFER carried out a study to explore how this approach can work in secondary maths classrooms across the UK, and how teachers use it to change the approaches to learning students take. We saw teachers use the approach to encourage students to take active responsibility for their learning, and for some to use it to accelerate their learning.

This project has produced a research report delving into the effects of Flipped Learning and the conditions needed for success. For those focused on classroom practice, we have also created a research-based practitioner guide to the approach, and a specific how-to guide for using resources from the Khan Academy and linking them to the UK curricula

 

Jim Lerman's insight: Three practical guides to implementing the Flipped Classroom model in secondary level math education. The setting is schools in the U.K., with a particular emphasis on Khan Academy videos -- however, much of the material is generalizable. Be sure to look at each of the 3 different guides.
