Half an Hour: New Forms of Assessment: measuring what you contribute rather than what you collect

Half an Hour: New Forms of Assessment: measuring what you contribute rather than what you collect | FutureTech for Learning | Scoop.it

Once again, as we do at the start of every school year, we are hearing about the rampant cheating that goes on, especially online, but in fact, everywhere, and without remorse or regret.

As Nikhil Hoyal writes, "Cheating is an epidemic in schools across the nation. A 2010 survey of 2,000 Stuyvesant students revealed that more than 72 percent of students copied their homework from others and about 90 percent of seniors cheated on tests."

In other words, Leet Noobs is a story of collaborative, technology-mediated learning. To some extent, it's a story about how people experience learning in gaming environments, which educators should take an interest in because an unbelievable amount of learning happens in these online spaces. What was the last time you worked together in a 40 person group for months to figure out how to solve a puzzle, failing over and over again until you succeed?

Inspiration for augmented, participatory design: crowdsourcing and cities as composites

Inspiration for augmented, participatory design: crowdsourcing and cities as composites | FutureTech for Learning | Scoop.it

That is an incredibly lofty title for a post that doesn't necessarily say anything original, but in the age of crowdsourcing perhaps we are pushing past notions of individual originality as a precursor for recognition? I hope as I am not inherently an original man, but more of a cobbler of other ideas. So, there is a great deal I am borrowing liberally from here, endless initiatives to embrace the intersection of cultural heritage, augmented reality, mobile learning, and the affordance of new technology in expanding their impact.

Peter Sloep: About formal and informal (non-formal) learning

"Discussions abound about how to properly differentiate formal and informal learning. To make things even more complicated, some throw in the notion of non-formal learning as a further refinement. On the one hand, the distinction has been made loosely to differentiate between learning in schools (formal) and all the other learning (informal). As long as you don't think to deeply, this works. However, now that some want to start theorizing about informal learning (workplace learning, professional learning, ...) and environments are claimed to be developed for it (such as MOOCs), too loose a definition won't do anymore. I will make a suggestion here for a sharp distinction that is simple to apply yet allows us to continue most of the conversations about formal and informal learning that we have engaged in."

recognition of competences acquired during informal learning is essential, specially on green jobs, it is always difficult to identify the difference !

Ikea's Augmented Reality Catalog Will Let You Peek Inside Furniture | Gadget Lab | Wired.com

Ikea's Augmented Reality Catalog Will Let You Peek Inside Furniture | Gadget Lab | Wired.com | FutureTech for Learning | Scoop.it
Ikea prints 211 million copies of its product catalog every year. That's more than 20 times the population of Sweden, the home of the build-it-yourself furniture empire.

 

"In early 2011, Ikea enlisted McCann to help bridge the gap between paper and digital. Replacing the paper catalog with an entirely digital catalog made little sense, Linus Karlsson, Global Chief Creative Officer of McCann, told Wired. “If you had a magazine that had 211 million copies in circulation, you just would’t end it. That would be crazy,” he said."

"Role-based e-learning for university students : a comparison of Australian, American, British and Singapore designs" by Sandra Wills

"Role-based e-learning for university students : a comparison of Australian, American, British and Singapore designs" by Sandra Wills | FutureTech for Learning | Scoop.it

Role play in face-to-face contexts has been shown to be a powerful teaching design at all levels of education. The arrival of e-learning makes it possible to engage with different types of role play, for example inter-national and inter-institutional collaborations, role plays blending online and face-to-face interaction, role plays blending synchronous and asynchronous media including recordings of the sessions, and role play within distance learning contexts. It is now possible to conduct elaborate and responsive role play activities where the identity of the participants is not immediately apparent, where they may use avatars or inhabit 3D virtual worlds as part of the role play. This paper charts the development of role-based e-learning over the past 20 years in Australia using simple e-learning technologies such as email and online discussion forums and compares this with emerging forms of the e-learning design which are adopting newer technologies in America, Britain and Asia.
