tom cockburn's curator insight, December 24, 2014 6:17 AM

Motivation and cooperative learning are good uses problems arise for people in the evaluation and assessment and that compromises the acceptance of such by potential employers etc. The difficulty is in discerning the difference between collaborative or shared learning as opposed to simple collusion in getting answers which may not entail much,if any learning,other than how to cheat and thus disadvantage genuine learners who have made an effort.Thus making use of others' research to inform your own projects is not the same as claiming others' work as your own...and that is a big selling point for systems like Turnitin and others.

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's curator insight, January 8, 9:52 PM
Many teachers of today are not prepared as the choices are often made at an administrate or IT level without proper vetting of teacher involvement.

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing | EduInfo | Scoop.it

These teachers see the internet and digital technologies such as social networking sites, cell phones and texting, generally facilitating teens’ personal expression and creativity, broadening the audience for their written material, and encouraging teens to write more often in more formats than may have been the case in prior generations.  At the same time, they describe the unique challenges of teaching writing in the digital age, including the “creep” of informal style into formal writing assignments and the need to better educate students about issues such as plagiarism and fair use.

Can MOOCs help democratize access to education?

Can MOOCs help democratize access to education? | EduInfo | Scoop.it

Despite many prophecies that massive open online courses (MOOCs) would be a democratizing force in education, providing global access to top-quality education at low cost to providers, and at no cost to the learner, the reality is somewhat less glorious. It is true that many MOOCs are taught by world-class professors, that they have attracted learners from all over the world, and that they have been offered free to participants. However, MOOCs are costly and time-consuming to produce, most participants are already well-educated, and only around 5% of registrants actually complete their courses.

Down to earth article about the effectiveness of MOOCs

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, October 1, 2014 8:35 AM

"MOOCs may be an effective learning mechanism for highly motivated, self-directed learners who have strong reading skills and high bandwidth internet access.  Short or “modularized” MOOCs may provide a cost-effective way for corporations to offer ongoing, just-in-time training for employees.  However, for the less motivated but perhaps more typical learner, negligible instructor-student interaction in MOOCs and limited opportunities for constructive peer-to-peer engagement present a challenge.  Improving access to learning opportunities for most individuals requires more than simply making the materials available. It is also necessary to help them select learning experiences that fit with their incoming level of preparation, interests, and goals for education, and to offer sustained guidance and support throughout the learning experience."Fiona Hollands, Ph.D., Teachers College, Columbia University.

Más allá de los MOOC´s, esta versión evolucionada del aprendizaje online se refiere no solo al aprendizaje individual sino también al desempeño que el estudiante demuestra en la vida online.  Su mayor virtud se apoya en el hecho de que concibe el aprendizaje horizontalmente, con las herramientas y contenidos específicos que cada uno quiera desarrollar. Hasta el 30 de septiembre podremos disfrutar de ella, esperando que pronto llegue también su versión móvil.  Otro salto en la manera como entendemos el aprendizaje, mientras que en España seguimos pensando que con leyes y más leyes mejorará el desempeño de nuestro sistema educativo a favor de una sociedad "mejor".

Did you know that by 2019 it is expected byat 50% of all classes taught will be delivered online (that's 5 years from now...).

It's clear to me that how we teach is changing rapidly, with both good and bad effects. I'm contributing to a conference in London mid-December and we're going to try to sort out the good from the bad, and identify strategies to enhance the former whilst minimizing the latter!

In Book Creator, you can easily make a voice recording of the child telling the story but often having the written text there can make that story even more powerful.

Just recently, I was training some assistant teachers on how to use Book Creator. I run a lot of workshops, and Book Creator is one of my most used apps on my iPad.
