Shift Your Classroom: Small Strategic Steps | Powerful Learning Practice

Shift Your Classroom: Small Strategic Steps | Powerful Learning Practice | elearning_moodle_schools | Scoop.it

For most of my teaching career, I’ve been a pretty traditional teacher (even now I slip back into that mode sometimes). However, as I went through the motions of trying to “teach” my students, something didn’t feel right. My students seemed to learn things only for the exam, were focused on the mark, not the learning that was supposed to be taking place. When the unit or semester was over, they dumped all their notes and assignments. Frustrating.

Do Teachers Need to Relearn How to Learn? – Redefining my role: Teacher as student

Do Teachers Need to Relearn How to Learn? – Redefining my role: Teacher as student | elearning_moodle_schools | Scoop.it

After all, I had never been on the Internet until after I received my undergraduate degree and it wasn’t until I started teaching (about 7 years ago) that I really began to learn about computers and technology."

ELearning quality certification, accreditation, label and benchmarking schemes - Learning Agency Network

This wiki is a currently updated summary of existing quality certification, accreditation, label and benchmarking schemes. If you want to become one of our editors, please feel free to register and then directly contact us via email to approve your account.
Most of the conducted funded projects on quality development are not sustainable. Means, there is often nobody who is willing to develop the project results further and to establish a working service. However, at least the project sites often stay online and are a valuable resource for development. That's why we are listing them as well on this page under the topic "Not Active".
