The right conditions for creativity

The right conditions for creativity | Engaged Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
The question is, are we preparing our students for a future in which creativity is required and valued or for one in which they will be process workers accurately following directions? Undoubtedly choice will be messy, hard to plan for, difficult to assess, complex to schedule and yet the results will reveal more about the students and their learning than tasks planned for them.

50 Resources For Teaching With iPads - Te@chThought

50 Resources For Teaching With iPads - Te@chThought | Engaged Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
So we thought we’d start an ongoing collection–that is, one that is updated to reflect trends and changes–of the best resources for teaching with the iPad.

This will include resources from all of the best sources, from Apple’s own stuff to TeachThought to edutopia to MindShift to DMLCentral to Jackie Gerstein and more. We can update it, or make it a wiki to crowdsource the process, or you can add suggestions in the comments below. Based on the activity of the comments, and the sharing of the post, we’ll decide how to handle it moving forward.

The joy of experience

The joy of experience | Engaged Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Many experts opine that project-based leaning is a dynamic approach to teaching in which students explore real-world problems and challenges. Students are inspired to do better, with this kind of active and engaged learning, and the knowledge sticks on better and for longer. A burgeoning group of educator believe that every subject that be taught in this way, and it is one of the most effective methods.

“When teachers realise that students need to be encouraged to think, they will realise that project-based learning will improve performance and bring results. Students will look at challenges in terms of working and finding solutions, rather than just getting marks. That is a big achievement!” says management educator Rohit Desai.

Going to the other end of the spectrum – the students – are extremely excited to do something hands on that involves them using their thought processes and sensibilities, rather than merely working on an assignment. Says journalism student Aditya Mehta, “Our editing teacher warned us that it will be easier to take an exam rather than make a newspaper or magazine. But we wanted no exams. Little did we know that this project would involve much more work! We really worked hard, and loved the end product.”

Teens can't tell the difference between Google ads and search results

Teens can't tell the difference between Google ads and search results | Engaged Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

The familiar narrative of teens and technology is one of natural proficiency — that young people just get technology in a way that older generations don't. But research suggests that just because children feel at home using smartphones, it doesn't mean they're more aware of the nuances of how the web works. In a new report published by the UK's telecoms watchdog Ofcom, researchers found that only a third of young people aged 12 to 15 knew which search results on Google were adverts, while this figure was even lower — less than one in five — for children aged 8 to 11.

How I plan to engage the class us AR next year:

 

1. I am planning on introducing Aurasma in the science centre next year. Dead posters will come to life, the anatomy model will link to anatomy lessons, the skeleton "Mr Bones" will link to the name of each bone scanned.(https://www.aurasma.com/)

 

2. Going to have a QR scavenger hunt/ Amazing Race next year - and I plan to assess it!

 

3.QR codes on tests/reports that link to a webcam video giving feedback on each student (personalised + unique attention = switched on learners)

 

Just 3 thoughts... what are yours?

As technology transforms higher education, new types of credentials will show us what students have learned | Hechinger Report | Engaged Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

College has leapt outside the traditional campus and classroom: Everything about higher education has gone digital, and this trend won’t stop anytime soon.

Hundreds of thousands of students now pursue degrees entirely online. Top-tier institutions such as Harvard University and MIT offer free MOOCs, or massive open online courses, that garner huge followings.


David Payne, vice president and chief operating officer, higher education division, Educational Testing Service.

Even more common, students at traditional colleges and universities use digital platforms and materials to supplement classroom lectures. Professors use class time for discussions, and put their lectures online so students can take that information with them.

These trends — breakthroughs, some would say — bring tremendous possibilities for attracting more people to higher education. We need that.


Anthony P. Carnevale, an economist and the director of the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, has clearly shown we need many more Americans to earn two- and four-year college degrees and various types of career credentials to stay internationally competitive. Sadly, in some states, fewer than one in four working-age adults hold a bachelor’s degree.

But as technology changes higher education — and as we thrust the doors to college open to many more students — we have to ensure we keep the quality in higher education in this fast-as-a-blur time of change. ...
