[PDF] How technology helps teachers succeed

[PDF] How technology helps teachers succeed | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Nearly everyone can remember having an outstanding teacher — someone who had a profound influence on their lives. Outstanding teachers are able to trigger students’ interest in their subjects so the students are able to reach higher levels of mastery. But how do they do this?

With the explosion of online learning across the nation in the last decade, the even tougher question is: How do outstanding teachers succeed in online classrooms when they never physically meet their students?

Elite teachers have, in fact, emerged in these classrooms, and they have compelling stories to share. They are not limited by technology. They are capitalizing on it — and engaging students in exciting ways that can help all teachers use technology to reach students effectively. The Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) and the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) have presented the National Online Teacher of the Year (NOTY) Award to an outstanding online teacher since 2010. In an effort to gather information on the best practices of these exceptional educators, SREB  interviewed nearly all the NOTY winners and finalists — and in some cases reviewed their nomination materials and program presentations.

This report presents their insights, largely in their own words. It can be applicable to a variety of classroom environments — not just to online learning.

Algo de Web 3.0

Algo de Web 3.0 | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Web 3.0 es un neologismo que se utiliza para describir la evolución del uso y la interacción en la red a través de diferentes caminos. Ello incluye, la transformación de la red en una base de datos, un movimiento hacia hacer los contenidos accesibles por múltiples aplicaciones non-browser, el empuje de las tecnologías de inteligencia artificial, la web semántica, la Web Geoespacial, o la Web 3D. Frecuentemente es utilizado por el mercado para promocionar las mejoras respecto a la Web 2.0. El término Web 3.0 apareció por primera vez en 2006 en un artículo de Jeffrey Zeldman, crítico de la Web 2.0 y asociado a tecnologías como Ajax. Actualmente existe un debate considerable en torno a lo que significa Web 3.0, y cual es la definición acertada.

¿Son los aprendizajes informales ya la alternativa? (1)

¿Son los aprendizajes informales ya la alternativa? (1) | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Los aprendizajes informales no los ha inventado nadie -¡como es obvio!-. Siempre han estado presentes en las organizaciones convirtiéndose en uno de los itinerarios más potentes de aprendizaje. Es un hecho probado y no insistiremos en ello.
Lo que se nos plantea, delante de esta realidad, son diferentes itinerarios. Una postura muy extrema podría defender que dado el alto nivel de autonomía de la que gozan ya los profesionales fruto, entre otros, de la potenciación que ha supuesto el disponer de contenidos y conexiones ilimitadas (Internet y la tecnología móvil), todo lo demás es obsoleto. Incluyendo, en esta obsolescencia, el aula clásica y la asistencia a cursos reglados. No es nuestra postura. Y, por tanto, respondiendo a la pregunta del título, no van a ser los aprendizaje informales (aunque estén muy potenciados, como explicaremos después) la alternativa a la formación tradicional. A veces, las urgencias organizativas podrían hacer pensar que puede desaparecer (o reducirse) este tipo de formación. Son itinerarios compatibles y complementarios.

How to OverCome learner disengagement in online learning courses?

How to OverCome learner disengagement in online learning courses? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Very often, organizations find that there are no takers for their eLearning courses. Why? We need to first understand who the target users of eLearning courses are. We called them trainees, learners, and end-users – all these terms indicate receptors of information, knowledge or skills. It means there is a giver of knowledge and a receptor of knowledge. The giver of knowledge is calling the shots. This is something like the sellers’ market in the early industrial age. Markets have witnessed changes, since then, and the same is true for the learning and training domain as well. We need to re-look at the way we see our learners. They are no longer at the mercy of their trainer. They have a variety of options before them to gain knowledge. So, how do you ensure they buy your eLearning courses (buy in the sense not literally, but investing time to complete your eLearning courses)?

What do we need in an online teacher training course? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
There are so many teacher-training courses online and all over the world that I think it’s a good idea to pause and consider the true essentials of professional development.

As an online teacher who learns from others online and who shares my own experiences, I’ve been able to view this from quite a few different perspectives. In the last month, in particular, I’ve been fully focused on this through the experience of setting up a new teacher-training course with Jason R. Levine, finding expert presenters and listing essential topics to be covered.

3 powerful web tools to create whiteboard animation videos for your class

3 powerful web tools to create whiteboard animation videos for your class | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Whiteboard animation videos are videos that draw themselves. They involve an animated use of images, shapes, characters, sounds and voice-overs to create a clip. This form of video production has been very popular recently and is widely used by some leading educational YouTube channels such as TED Ed and RSA Animate. Creating a whiteboard animation video is no longer a graphic designer's job. There are actually several web tools that allow you to easily put together an animated video with as simple tools as drag and drop. As a teacher, you can use these animations to create and share tutorials, presentations, step by tsp guides, and many more. Below are three of my favourite tools I would recommend for you:

How will the Internet of Everything change education by 2018? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

As we all know, technology is evolving rapidly. It has, and will continue to, profoundly change our lives in the years to come. Just four years ago, it would have been hard to imagine we would have access to the kind information we now have in our pockets. So what will the future look like four years from now? What kind of positive changes can we expect to see rising out of the Internet of Everything (IoE) by 2018?

El hecho de poder proporcionar a los estudiantes información sobre sus trabajos escritos supone habitualmente una alta carga de trabajo. Aún así, sabemos , tanto de nuestras experiencias y de la  propia investigación, que la retroalimentación es esencial. John Hattie, Profesor de Educación y Director del Instituto de Investigación de Educación en la Universidad de Melbourne,  cree que la retroalimentación debe ser oportuna, pertinente y orientada a la acción. Este gráfico, basado en la Taxonomía de Bloon, nos puede ayudar.

¡La alegría del 'error'!

¡La alegría del 'error'! | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Seríamos algo más que humanoscomo si podríamos renovar y cambiar y si es posible hacerlo sin riesgo. Pero, por desgracia esto es una contradicción en los términos. Nueva es, por tanto, nuevo, porque hay poca o ninguna experiencia, porque en cualquiera de nuestros experimentos,siempre asumimos riesgos, por lo tanto, los errores se suceden, te guste o no.

Por tanto, la siguiente cita se merece la atención, pero también quieren una organización o un individuo , que sepa y que sea innovador.

El mayor error que puede hacer en la vida es estar siempre con el miedo de cometer un error.” (Dietrich Bonhoeffer)

El error genera miedo con consecuencias desagradables, lo cual nos lleva, normalmente,a culpar de ello a alguien, o le ponemos cualquier excusa que nos inhiba de cualquier responsabilidad. Con un dedo extendido señalado a los colegas, lo que ha ocurrido es un accidente. Esto lleva a una incertidumbre aún mayor, se ralentiza la búsqueda de soluciones y causa muchas pérdidas de nuestras fortalezas. (debemos aprender a vivir con la incertidumbre)

La manera correcta de lidiar con el miedo y la culpa de los errores es una parte esencial de una cultura del error. Un desprejuiciado como sea posible para hacer frente a los errores, por lo tanto es también una de las principales tareas de los líderes, como el establecimiento de la cultura de comunicación adecuado que la admisión de errores y un resultado proceso de aprendizaje permite – en cualquier nivel ya sea gerente o líder de equipo.

LearnFlex LMS: Implementing user groups and communities

LearnFlex LMS: Implementing user groups and communities | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
If you’re looking to introduce new user groups into the LMS then your first step will be to determine what variations from the existing user groups will need to be setup before adding them. Will the users require their own set of courses, learn tracks and resources or will the audience for existing configuration be updated to include the new group? Will the same administration team be responsible for the new users or will additional Cohorts, Curriculum Groups and Business Units need to be setup to restrict access from the other groups? With proper planning you can have multiple user groups using the LMS with little to no overlap so if that’s the direction you plan to go then be sure to plan ahead so only the required people have access to each group.

Impacts of #MOOCs on Higher Education

Impacts of #MOOCs on Higher Education | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
An international group of higher education institutions—including UT Arlington, Stanford University, Hong Kong University and Davidson College—convened by learning researcher and theorist George Siemens gathered last week to explore the impacts of MOOCs on higher education (full list of participating institutions below).

The takeaway? Higher education is going digital, responding to the architecture of knowledge in a digital age, and MOOCs, while heavily criticized, have proven a much-needed catalyst for the development of progressive programs that respond to the changing world.

After sharing challenges, key innovations and general impacts, we were collectively awed by our similarities. Sure, Harvard and Stanford have larger budgets and teams, and the Texas system is, well, a system, while Davidson College enrolls a little under 2,000 students; yet, these fundamentally different institutions voiced similar challenges in their transitions to digital environments.

The world needs a new curriculum (Mark Prensky) | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
What will it take for the world to stop offering our children an education that is only a slightly updated version of what was offered in the 19th century, and provide our children a third-millennium education that truly meets their own individual needs — while meeting society’s needs in the process?

Who will be the first to break away from the useless chase of international rankings, and adopt and offer an education that will quickly improve the life of all children — while producing the motivated workers we need?

When will politicians and countries understand that in our new world connections and work are global, and that, as a result, world education is not national, but a collective creation that must be at the same high standard for everyone, everywhere?

Social Learning is voluntary; collaboration platforms are enablers

Social Learning is voluntary; collaboration platforms are enablers | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
I love this description from Jane Harts post:
FAUXIAL LEARNING is about forcing people to use social media in courses – or even in the workplace – and then confusing compliance with engagement (and even worse) learning.

This totally hits the nail on the head. As an Instructional Designer and L&D Consultant, I am often asked questions like:

1.What social collaboration platform should we use?
2.How do we get people to collaborate?
3.Oh, but they don't want to share. How do we make them share their learning?

My first reaction is to say: "You can't make people share or get anyone to collaborate." Then, I take a deep breath and start a dialogue.

And in the course of my many conversations with different organizations and their L&D departments, I see an emerging pattern of thoughts and behavior.
