Building Classroom Community Amongst the Machines

Building Classroom Community Amongst the Machines | elearning_moodle_schools | Scoop.it

"There’s no denying that most of us are engrossed daily with technology. The attachment is evident in just about every public place. Mobile devices, for many of us, have become our closest friend."

Richard Jones's insight:

Reminiscent of the work Jill Margerison is doing at The Southport School, getting students to engage with physical representations of their online contributions.  

 

Some things done (but not all) in the eLearning space are possible physically and vice versa.  This adds depth and a chance to further develop Higher Order thinking.

Le LMS Moodle vu sous l'angle de l'expérience utilisateur (UX) - = actions et perceptions d’une personne qui résultent de l’usage ou de l’anticipation de l’usage d’un produit, d’un service ou d’un système-. La projection proposée s'appuie sur la pyramide de Maslow (= hiérarchie des besoins humains) revisitée par Stephen Anderson qui l'a adaptée à l'utilisation d'un LMS.

Dear Students and Faculty: Please Go Digital

Dear Students and Faculty: Please Go Digital | elearning_moodle_schools | Scoop.it
In a world where results matter, it's clear that the future of instructional resources is digital and we are pricing these resources at a much lower level than print.
Richard Jones's insight:

This is an interesting read from the publisher's perspective - one which we don't often consider.  For me the answer has been, for a couple of decades now, writing my own teaching resources.  In more recent times these find their way into class as blended courses on the LMS.  This is better than a digital copy of a textbook from a publisher because I have tracking data too.  Probably this is where publishers should head next.
