Is It Plagiarism or Collaboration?

Is It Plagiarism or Collaboration? | Elearning and Mlearning Topics | Scoop.it

Perhaps instead of focusing our concerns on technology as a wonderful aid to plagiarizers, we should focus on its ability to foster creativity and collaboration, and then ask ourselves (we are the clever adults here) how we can incorporate those elements into our formalized assessments.

Technology for professional development: access, interest and opportunity for teachers of English in South Asia

Technology for professional development: access, interest and opportunity for teachers of English in South Asia | Elearning and Mlearning Topics | Scoop.it

Focus groups were conducted, along with interviews with interview experts and school leaders. The report also aims to highlight many of the existing initiatives in South Asia where teachers use technology for professional development and provide the reader with a clearer understanding of the regional digital context. Using what we have learned, we aim to continue working in partnership with UK and South Asian organisations and institutions on teacher education projects, using technology appropriately and creatively to achieve our common goals.

8 Ways to Build Creativity In Your Students - Daily Genius #makered

8 Ways to Build Creativity In Your Students - Daily Genius #makered | Elearning and Mlearning Topics | Scoop.it
In a time where testing becomes more ubiquitous than ever, and creativity and innovation – though theoretically highly valued in the ‘real world’ – are left behind in our classrooms, it’s time for teachers to look at ways to promote creativity in their students. There are tons of lists out there about what ‘creative people’ do and how you can be more like them, but integrating daily rituals into an already jam-packed classroom schedule probably doesn’t sound very doable to most teachers.

That’s why we like the handy infographic below: While it does ostensibly give you some habits (like meditation) that may help both you and your students in the long run, if you extrapolate on some of the suggestions you’ll find yourself with some incredible guidelines for how you teach and encourage students in your classroom, all of which will push them a little further down the creative pathway.

Are you a closet iPhone or iPad user? No, really, do you use mobile devices inside your closet?

This infographic from litmus.com makes a strong case for leveraging the power and omnipresence of mobile devices for learning.

Not only are 80 percent of our learners using mobile devices, they take them everywhere. Notice the seven most popular places learners use their mobile devices (surprisingly, closet didn’t make the list, but we still believe people surf the net there).

Supporting Learning Outcomes

Supporting Learning Outcomes | Elearning and Mlearning Topics | Scoop.it

Effective educators know—supporting the knowledge and skills determined by a course’s learning outcomes is essential for student success, both in the classroom and online.

 

Learning outcomes can serve as goals, benchmarks, standards for accountability, and guides for course design. That’s why you need multiple methods to support learning outcomes. The aim of this report is to provide you real-world, tested approaches to help you improve student learning.

50+ Tools for Differentiating Instruction Through Social Media - Edutopia

50+ Tools for Differentiating Instruction Through Social Media - Edutopia | Elearning and Mlearning Topics | Scoop.it
Imagine a world where resources were limited to what was found in the classroom or the school closet known as the "Curriculum Materials Room." Picture a world where students wrote letters with pen and paper to communicate with other students and adults outside of the building. Due to postage costs, the teacher either sent the letters in bulk or paid for stamps out of his or her own pocket. Can you recall a time when student interests like skateboarding or video were never used as part of learning curriculum because the tools needed were either too expensive or not yet conceptualized? Do you remember a time when non-traditional learners struggled, and absenteeism meant a high likelihood of students doing poorly in school, and possibly having to retake the course?

If you experienced none of these scenarios, then you live in a world of possibility because you grew up with the many social media tools available to support all learners. If any of these scenarios bring back memories as a teacher or student, then you understand that we have many more tools today to ensure that learners succeed despite struggles, because students and teachers have so much more available to meet every learner's needs.

Purposeful play should be the central learning experience in early learning classrooms. It is a natural way of learning that supports creativity and imagination. But why should play be limited to primary classrooms only? It doesn't matter what age we are; we all like to play.

This year I presented a pre-conference workshop on makerspaces with Dottie Smay and Courtney Walker from Shorecrest Prepatory in St. Petersburg, FL.  I’m so glad I got to present alongside them, as they’ve created a fantastic makerspace at their school (post coming eventually) and because they helped to balance out the conversation.  Their school is a private school – Dottie handles the elementary side while Courtney handles the secondary side.  We had a lot of elementary librarians at our workshop, so I was glad to have someone with more direct experience on that end.

The process of creating and publishing videos can be a great way to get students excited about researching, storytelling, and sharing their work with an audience. For teachers who have never facilitated video creation projects in their classrooms, choosing the right style of video and the right tools can be a bit confusing at first. To help bring clarity to the styles and tools, I have a rather simple outline that I use in my video creation workshops. That outline with suggested tools for creating videos in each style is included in the PDF embedded below. You can download the PDF here.
