Free Technology for Teachers: The Art of Explanation - A Review and a Conversation With Lee LeFever

Free Technology for Teachers: The Art of Explanation - A Review and a Conversation With Lee LeFever | EduRevolutia | Scoop.it

Yesterday, I sat down and recorded a short video interview with Lee. In the video I ask Lee about the difference between fact telling and story telling, what makes an effective explanation, and for his advice for teachers who want to have their students create Common Craft style videos. At the very end you'll also get the "behind the scenes" story of Common Craft's first video.

How [not] to Design an Online Course

How [not] to Design an Online Course | EduRevolutia | Scoop.it
I’d like to introduce you to Professor Harding a history professor who is transitioning his face-to-face undergraduate history course to a twelve-week, 3-credit online course. Professor Harding, though fictitious embodies the typical errors made by most course instructors with little or no experience in online learning when moving their face-to-face course to the online environment.

9 Simple Tips For Connecting With Your Students On Twitter - Edudemic | EduRevolutia | Scoop.it
My goal is not only to answer the “why do I have to take this course?” question when they enter the class but to spark and encourage a life-long interest in science. Twitter is an excellent tool to reach and teach my students about science both during the class and long after those final grades have been submitted by posting content that engages and interests students.

Today, no longer is having a high school diploma is enough to land a good job and support family. College is key today, but finding the funds to pay for it can be tricky. Brick and mortar institutions cost a fortune, and most have to work while going to school. But for those who can't juggle both, online learning can be a great option.

 

We know what that you may think this avenue is for slackers, but have a look at our infographic below, and your opinion may just change.

Online education trend expands

Online education trend expands | EduRevolutia | Scoop.it
Over the past several months, dozens of universities, including the University of Texas System, Brown and Wesleyan, have joined the bandwagon, working with MOOC providers to offer free online courses to anyone with an Internet connection.

Last week, the American Council on Education, an association for higher education presidents, raised the possibility that such courses could count toward a degree when it said it would review several to determine whether they ought to be eligible for transfer credit.

The top 10 free online courses | EduRevolutia | Scoop.it
Entrepreneurs are always learning. Whether it’s through reading or watching a mentor work, learning how to do business better is a fundamental part of running a company.

 

So it’s little wonder many courses in the latest trend of free education are aimed squarely at entrepreneurs. While some may still view free, online courses with a sense of derision, the truth is these resources are quality sources of knowledge.

Flipping This Class: A Journey from Professor to Popularizer

Flipping This Class: A Journey from Professor to Popularizer | EduRevolutia | Scoop.it
I was an unusual little girl. Since I was four, I wanted to be a scientist. I got the idea from a television show called 3-2-1 Contact.

 

I learned a lot in creating these videos during my transformation from professor to popularizer. You see, in a classroom, we have a captive audience. We can give a boring lecture and the students are not going anywhere. However, YouTube videos must compete for a student's attention. They are probably media-multitasking (i.e. updating their Facebook status and tweeting at the same time), so you've got to make the videos compelling.

Teaching With Tablets | Inside Higher Ed

Teaching With Tablets | Inside Higher Ed | EduRevolutia | Scoop.it

Stephanie Hedge is a graduate student in the Department of English at Ball State University. You can follow her on twitter at @slhedge.

 

I present this post with a two caveats: first, this post is written with iPads in mind (particularly as I discuss apps), because that’s what I use, but the basic principles hold for any tablet, including the neat-o Microsoft Surface. Secondly, I recognize that tablets can be prohibitively expensive for graduate students. However, new advances in tech are bringing down prices, and some schools may provide a tech budget for students. Check what kinds of devices are available to you! Although the cost can be high, I find the flexibility and utility of an iPad to be well worth the investment.

Students at George Mason University shifted their feet and chatted outside a classroom here on Tuesday morning, waiting for Stephen Groening’s class on cellphone cultures to begin. On tap was not an ordinary classroom discussion about the assigned readings. Instead, the entire conversation would take place by Twitter, and students were nervous.
