5 Learning Strategies That Make Students Curious

Via Edumorfosis, juandoming
Daniel Moix's insight:

While it's important to establish routines and expectations that students become familiar with, there's little better than that moment when you can lead a learner to a place where he goes, "Oh!  WOW!  I didn't see that coming!  It makes total sense now!"

How to Use eLearning Quizzes Effectively

How to Use eLearning Quizzes Effectively | elearning | Scoop.it
Most of us have been through an eLearning course and completed a simple multiple choice quiz that seemed pointless and a waste of time. These poorly developed assessments can reduce the credibility of our otherwise well-designed eLearning courses.

Via Lori Cheezem
Daniel Moix's insight:

This resource makes some great points.  Work to reach as high as you can in Bloom's Taxonomy with all question, even multiple choice.  Can you present a question that requires synthesis rather than just recall?

10 Simple E-Learning Design Tips | CUED | elearning | Scoop.it
There is a thin line between creating elearning that is effective and creating a course that misses the mark. Many instructional designers go through great lengths to create engaging, flashy elearning modules, but end up doing more bad than good.
Daniel Moix's insight:

"Guide the Viewer’s Eye"  There's not a lot of difference between an infographic and a third grader glog in terms of the components that go into it, but there's a night and day difference in how a well-designed infographic flows and communicates.

A Nice Graphic Featuring The 3 Components of 21st Century Learning | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Nice Graphic Featuring The 3 Components of 21st Century Learning | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | elearning | Scoop.it

I came across this awesome graphic on 21st century learning and found it really worth sharing with you here. The graphic is pretty basic and dissects learning into three major areas: foundational knowledge, meta knowledge, and humanistic knowledge.

Foundational knowledge is associated with the verb to know and is about content across different disciplines. In other sense, to know means to internalize and be familiar with the insights of the content area under study.

Meta knowledge is knowledge about knowledge. It is learning to learn, a way to think critically about the knowledge you internalize and act upon it. Humanistic knowledge, on the other hand, is a step higher. It is value-laden and requires both inter and intra personal judgement.

Which knowledge comes first ? This is a question I have been thinking about for a while but found it  hard to make such classification because learning, I believe, is not a linear process and learners have different learning strategies. Do you have a different stance on this? Please share with us in the comment form below.

Always good to keep in mind why we are incorporating the technology we introduce in our classroom....our purpose is to prepare students for life after the classroom where learning happens in a variety of forms. Technology and technological literacy is imperative for productive citizens.

The Ultimate Cheat Sheet for Creating Learner Personas

The Ultimate Cheat Sheet for Creating Learner Personas | elearning | Scoop.it
This cheat sheet can help an organization develop those personas to move instruction from mediocre to effective eLearning courses.
Daniel Moix's insight:

When I'm designing courses, I use a very stripped down version of personas.  I have "Lazy Daniel," "Busy Daniel," "Lost Daniel," and "Overachiever Daniel" (which is somewhat redundant).  I try to make sure each version of myself as a learner is accounted for in my course design.

 

I like the idea of making this systemic.  I can also plan for "Single Mother Daniel," and others.  Maybe that would be Danielle?

Education is a notoriously slow adopter of technology, but Google Apps is growing quickly, if not virally, doubling over the last two years.

As a Google Certified Trainer, I'm partly to "blame" for the adoption of Google Applications for Education.  I've long said that it isn't the tool that makes a school great, but how the educators at that school use the tools to make learning richer and more accessible.

One of the elements he discusses is the "Talking Logo."  I'd say mine is, "I help teachers who want help reaching more of their students."  The "How do you do that?" response is, "by pairing sound pedagogical practices with technologies that didn't exist when most teachers learned to teach."
