Infographic: Why aren’t your students participating on the Discussion Board?

 

Trying to engage students in your online courses can be a hassle sometimes, with problems arising from the way the course is designed and up to the way you connect with them on a daily basis. Discussion boards, however challenging they might be, offer a good opportunity to extend the learning space beyond the general class contact hours.

15 Questions To Help Students Respond To New Ideas

15 Questions To Help Students Respond To New Ideas | Faculty Development and Support for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"It just might be that in a society where information is abundant, thinking habits are more important than knowledge. Somewhere beneath wisdom and above the “things” a student knows.

Laws of economics say that scarcity increases value. It’s no longer information that’s scarce, but rather meaningful response to that information. Thought.

And thought has a source–a complex set of processes, background knowledge, and schema that we can, as educators think of as cognitive habits. And if they’re habits, well, that means they’re probably something we can practice at, doesn’t it?"

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 8, 10:09 PM

We want our students to demonstrate that they know how to think, to understand that they have the ability to ask questions and find answers, answers that may not be available through Google (esp. if we are asking them to research). In short, we want them to use metacognitive skills.

But how do we teach them these skils? The image above, from teachthought, provides 15 questions that may help students create the habits that students need to learn. Below are three of the questions. Click through to the post for the entire list, as well as some great discussion.

* Is this idea important to me? To others? Why or why not?

* Is there a “part” of this new idea I can take and “pivot”? Create something new and fresh?

* What real-world models–examples–relate to this that can help me understand this further?

Consider posting these questions in your classroom and using them when appropriate with students.

Bronwyn Burke's curator insight, September 18, 5:50 PM

Thinking and questioning, the more the better. Engaging with new information and building curiosity.

Should I Post This Image Infographic | Faculty Development and Support for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

As educators, it is not only important to encourage our students to push the technological envelope, but it’s equally essential that we teach them to navigate the digital world in a responsible manner. Unfortunately, students (and people in general) have the tendency to ignore the fact that media is regulated and requires compliance of copyright rules and fair use guidelines. Just like they need to be taught the basics of math and science, students need to learn that just because media is accessible, downloadable and free that this does not necessarily mean it’s acceptable to reuse it in a project of their own—especially without possible restrictions.

iPads + project based learning = limitless possibilities - Daily Genius | Faculty Development and Support for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Though more than two years into my school’s implementation of project based learning, yesterday, I found myself excited all over again. I was helping a second grade teacher enhance her landforms PBL by using Padlet as part of the KWL process and suddenly realized that this approach to student-centered learning has truly become a part of who we are as a school.

My adventures in combining PBLs and iPads began with a gift of two carts. I had just started taking the PBLU online courses when the head of our independent pre-k through eighth grade school challenged each grade-level team to teach one unit using the PBL approach while finding authentic ways to draw in iPads. As the lower school technology integration person, I immediately went on a quest to find a guinea pig willing to plan and co-teach a PBL unit incorporating iPads. This is the story of that first experience. . .

The flipped classroom is a teaching model in which the traditional lecture and homework assignments are reversed. Students watch video lectures before class and the class session is made up of exercises, discussions, and problem solving with students receiving personalized attention from the professor. This model has grown in popularity over the past several years

A Flipped Classroom? Or Should It Be Sideways? | Edudemic | Faculty Development and Support for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
The traditional model of teach we’re familiar with is that of the teacher in front of the class, lecturing and assigning homework for students to do once they leave the classroom. The teacher has full control over their learning process. Or do they? Teachers who seem to have full control over their student’s learning often …

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, September 4, 6:58 AM

Put control over the classroom on the hands of the students, not the teachers. Utilize a variety of online teacher resources (many of which are free!) instead of paper printouts and repetitive lectures. The flipped classroom or sideways classroom promises to make the experience far less tiresome for both teachers and students.

But one thing that’s been lacking has been a consensus on what the flipped classroom actually is. "
