Caroline Tanner's curator insight, April 1, 3:04 AM

Blended Learning ist meiner Meinung nach nicht nur ein Motivator für die SuS mal mit anderen Medien konfrontiert zu werden, sondern integriert sie auch in der heutigen digitalen Welt: Immer weniger ist für uns ein Leben ohne Computer vorstellbar - dies muss darum meiner Meinung nach schon in der Schule (v.a. im jungen Alter) implementiert werden. 


Durch das Blended Learning kommt einerseits Abwechslung durch die Medien rein und andererseits ist es wie einen Szenenwechsel für die Schüler, wo sie, obwohl der Inhalt noch der gleiche ist, die Geschichte (Mathe, Geographie, ect.) auf eine andere Art und Weise zusgespielt kriegen und der Transfer bei manchen sogar besser fällt als bei einer Methode zu bleiben.

Teach girls bravery, not perfection | Teaching, Learning, and Leadership - From A to Z | Scoop.it
We're raising our girls to be perfect, and we're raising our boys to be brave, says Reshma Saujani, the founder of Girls Who Code. Saujani has taken up the charge to socialize young girls to take risks and learn to program — two skills they need to move society forward. To truly innovate, we cannot leave behind half of our population, she says. "I need each of you to tell every young woman you know to be comfortable with imperfection."

When I taught struggling readers, I found they did not understand the text well when it was read by a computer. Teachers need to find ways to read with students and explore their reading comprehension. As students improve their comprehension, using digital tools might be a practical and necessary step in the process.

The death of “online” learning in higher ed

The death of “online” learning in higher ed | Teaching, Learning, and Leadership - From A to Z | Scoop.it
Online learning has expanded dramatically over the past two decades, reaching a high of more than 5 million enrollments in 2013. While that expansion has slowed recently, it still far exceeds overall growth in higher education. Yet by 2025, the phrase “online learning” could disappear from the common vernacular.
more...
Jesus Sandoval's curator insight, March 2, 1:42 PM
The death of “online” learning in higher ed by Craig Widemann speaks about a prediction that could possibly happen in the near future. There is a theory that by the year 2025, the phrase “online learning” could disappear. I was surprised to read this because I have always thought that as technology evolves throughout time, education would evolve along with it. How is it possible that something so useful can end? According to the author it is because of ubiquity and integration. Apparently the learning outcomes from online education are the same as those of being taught at an actual classroom. I believe this is important because I am currently a college student and I was actually planning to take online courses at some point during my college career. I’ve noticed that the main point in the article is that social media and technology is affecting the educational system too much. There are both positive and negative things about the effects technology has had on education. For instance, it has helped many high schoolers who were behind in their credits catch up in a matter of a few months. I suppose the bad thing about it is that some students might not take it seriously. Some just enroll in these online courses to avoid showing up to class. The writer seems to anticipate that by the year 2025 many things might change. Possibly even the faculty might be different as well.
