The Current State Of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) | Edudemic

The Current State Of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) | Edudemic | English.hub.ar | Scoop.it

This is the post: "Technology is paving a new way for more students to connect with some of the best teachers on the planet. From Stanford to MIT to Harvard and beyond, there are massive open online courses sprouting up everywhere. It’s never been easier to take a course (or even get a whole darn degree) online.

But the newest move is toward MOOCs and it’s setting the edtech world aflame. In a good way. There are now news outlets and other organizations paying attention to what online strategy some schools are adopting and it’s increasing awareness of the hard work I know Edudemic readers do everyday. So what’s the current state of MOOCs (this infographic from Online Colleges should help) and, more importantly, does anyone else hate that acronym as much I do?" (Personally I prefer Jeff Lebow's COOL - anyway, the meat in this post is in the infographic) - Thanks to Shelly Terrell for her post on Facebook.

Fernando Ávila Clavijo's curator insight, June 18, 8:56 PM

"Tesis doctoral sobre hipertexto y documentación por María Jesús Lamarca Lapuente. 


El hipertexto nos abre un camino nuevo y desconocido lleno de posibilidades. Tradicionalmente la escritura se ha producido y transmitido de forma secuencial y jerárquica y los soportes sólo permitían la lectura lineal, pero el hipertexto rompe esa concepción del texto como una línea recta y esto trae consecuencias no sólo para la concepción del propio texto, sino para conceptos tales como autorlectorobraedición, etc.


Por otro lado, el hipertexto ofrece una nueva manera de organizar la información y esto tiene enormes repercusiones sobre la tradicional forma de concebir el documento y la ciencia documental, modificando conceptos tan arraigados en el análisis documental como  la descripción bibliográfica/documental, la localización del documento, la catalogación, clasificación, indización o el resumen documental, etc.; y modificando los métodos de búsqueda y recuperación de la información en los que Internet, y más concretamente, la World Wide Web, se ha convertido en una especie de biblioteca total en donde obtener no sólo las referencias bibliográficas y documentales requeridas, sino lo que es más importante, un directo e inmediato acceso al documento."

Why Aren’t More Schools Using Free, Open Tools? | English.hub.ar | Scoop.it
One school in Pennsylvania is using open-source tools wherever possible to keep students close to the code behind the machines they use. This stance is opposite to the very restrictive policies of many schools, but could allow students more freedom to explore what makes devices work.

Game of Phones – 7 DOs & DON’Ts in m-learning | English.hub.ar | Scoop.it

Mobile learning is confusing. In theory it sounds great, in practice it’s often mis-attributed hype. Different devices have different patterns of use. The fact that you make ‘responsive’ e-learning simply means that it can be delivered on different devices NOT that it will be used on different devices. M-learning is, therefore, often more fiction than fact.

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, February 7, 2013 9:57 AM

This is a site that teachers can use with students, or a place where motivated students can access language resources for autonomous learning. Short texts with vocabulary lists and podcasts. In some cases there is also a video. Activities can either be short or extended. Wonderful resources for all the literacy skills. As the texts are short I feel students will be more inclined to dip into this site themselves. Certainly worth exploring.

Lou Salza's curator insight, May 16, 2013 8:53 AM

I have been using text to speech almost exclusively for reading articles on the web, newspapers, and courese reading for a course in Leadership I am taking at Case Western Reserve University. I love the e-readers ( Read and Write Gold; Kindle, and Audio books)  because I can jack up the speed and read with my ears as fast as non dyslexics who are fluent readers read with their eyes. We need to understand the 'cost' of eye reading to dyslexic students even when they "graduate" from OG or Wilson: the burden of phonological processing is too high in terms of fatigue. If we don't make the technology more available and acceptable in schools we will deny intelligent students with print challenges the opportunity to study in college, graduate or professional schools. 

I still read paper books.  Right now I am reading  A light in August by Faulkner. It is on my night stand and it is a wonderful if slow experience for me. For some, print will never 'fall away' and allow for effortless decoding and pholonological recoding.--Lou  

 

Excerpt:

"Understanding how reading on paper is different from reading on screens requires some explanation of how the brain interprets written language. We often think of reading as a cerebral activity concerned with the abstract—with thoughts and ideas, tone and themes, metaphors and motifs. As far as our brains are concerned, however, text is a tangible part of the physical world we inhabit. In fact, the brain essentially regards letters as physical objects because it does not really have another way of understanding them. As Wolf explains in her book Proust and the Squid, we are not born with brain circuits dedicated to reading. After all, we did not invent writing until relatively recently in our evolutionary history, around the fourth millennium B.C. So the human brain improvises a brand-new circuit for reading by weaving together various regions of neural tissue devoted to other abilities, such as spoken language, motor coordination and vision..."

Being a Digital Native Isn’t Enough

Being a Digital Native Isn’t Enough | English.hub.ar | Scoop.it

It is our role as teachers to help students develop the skills to problem solve independently and collaboratively use 21st-century skills while not relying on technology to do all of the thinking for them. Just because these students are digital natives, does not mean that they do not need guidance to navigate the digital world–both in terms of learning how to discern important and relevant information from a large swath of data, and also to be able to inquire and solve problems that take time, thought, and energy.
