Experimenting with Tech Tools to Improve Writing Feedback

Experimenting with Tech Tools to Improve Writing Feedback | Ongoing PD | Scoop.it

With these tools (many of which are included in this list), students are placed in charge of their learning. They engage in meaningful self-reflection, highlight according to criteria, and use academic language to critique their own work. The shift is significant. With Google tools, I can provide ongoing feedback while my students showcase digital responsibility and revise throughout the writing process.

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice | Ongoing PD | Scoop.it

Ibrar Bhatt writes: "Digital curation therefore is not just about finding relevant material, although that is a significant part of it, but is also about creating a specific and unique experience by utilising the resulting materials which then become contextualised within a new space. A curator, therefore, whether she is a journalist-by-proxy such as Popova or a student completing an assignment in a classroom, not only collects and interprets, but also creates a new experience with it. In this respect, curation is a process of problem solving, re-assembling,re-creating, and stewardship of other people’s writing."

Time to retire from online learning?

Time to retire from online learning? | Ongoing PD | Scoop.it

And then there’s MOOCs. I can’t express adequately just how pissed off I am about MOOCs – not the concept, but all the hubris and nonsense that’s been talked and written about them. At a personal level, it was as if 45 years of work was for nothing. All the research and study I and many others had done on what makes for successful learning online were totally ignored, with truly disastrous consequences in terms of effective learning for the vast majority of participants who took MOOCs from the Ivy League universities. Having ignored online learning for nearly 20 years, Stanford, MIT and Harvard had to re-invent online learning in their own image to maintain their perceived superiority in all things higher educational.

This paragraph exactly reflects my thoughts about MOOCs. Glad to hear it coming from a leader in the online and distance learning field as this type of voice has been swamped by the unquestioning embracing of MOOCs by all and sundry!

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's curator insight, April 22, 7:17 AM

Lastly, I am concerned that the computer scientists seem to be taking over online education. Ivy League MOOCs are being driven mainly by computer scientists, not educators. Politicians are looking to computer science to automate learning in order to save money. Computer scientists have much to offer, but they need more humility and a greater willingness to work with other professionals, such as psychologists and teachers, who understand better how learning operates. This is a battle that has always existed in educational technology, but it’s one I fear the educators are losing. The result could be disastrous, but that’s a theme for a whole set of blog posts.

Own-language use in ELT: exploring global practices and attitudes | TeachingEnglish | British Council | BBC | Ongoing PD | Scoop.it

In this research paper Graham Hall and Guy Cook explore teacher attitudes to own-language use in the classroom. They conducted a global survey and interviews with practising teachers.
They found evidence of widespread own-language use within ELT, and suggest that teachers’ attitudes towards own-language use, and their classroom practices, are more complex than usually acknowledged. The findings also suggest that there is a potential gap between mainstream ELT literature and teachers’ practices on the ground.

Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom

Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom | Ongoing PD | Scoop.it

That we have evolved our favorite forms of communication is obvious without more than simply watching our students walk through the hallways. It would be easy to demonize social media and each medium that it provides for human interaction. But it would be educationally valuable to embrace it, turning it into an opportunity for our students to develop an appreciation for the advanced cognitive skills they employ on a daily basis. Why not study the highly visual communication models connecting the thoughts that mean the most to them with the social networks where they live their lives?

Visual literacy matters


Visual literacy is the ability to:

  1. Process and make meaning of information presented in an image.
  2. Communicate our own ideas through principles of design.
  3. Create our own messages that capture our visual thinking in a way that conceptualizes problems to given solutions.

HJJP's curator insight, August 20, 11:16 PM

Single source education has never been very effective, I still remember those days of pure memorization. I was fortunate enough to have relatives that always asked me about what I learned... and they were not interested in me reciting the facts, they were interested in me telling them what I thought, how it impacted my life or those of others.... When I answered them, and they were happy with my answers, I actually got to understand what I had memorized, and certainly got to master the information in a more meaningful way.... It did not always help with getting excellent grades in exams, but I still accurately remember concepts I learned in 3rd grade.... I feel blended learning is the only way of teaching.... this will allow students to understand and implement complex concepts, catapulting them into much high learning than what we experienced 50 years ago.... or 40... or 30... even 20 or in many classrooms, a couple of days ago....

 

Hope to see many teachers utilizing these sort of blended learning... Current technology makes it so much easier...
