Creating engagement through interactive infographics

Creating engagement through interactive infographics | GPS for the ELT | Scoop.it

I’ve been a long term advocate of the use of infographics in education and especially enjoy thinking of ways that students can be encouraged to engage with and question the content as well as create their own graphics, so when I rediscovered Visme.co I was really delighted to find the tool that I once thought was a PowerPoint substitute for creating online presentations had turned into an awesome interactive infographic creator.

ClassHook | Educational Clips from Popular Media | GPS for the ELT | Scoop.it

TV shows and movies often contain scenes that discuss topics such as Science, Math, Art, Music, and more. While funny and amusing, these scenes also have valid educational merit.

These scenes not only teach students but also make learning more relevant. Students can associate a concept in class to an image they see in their everyday lives. As a result, this increases content retention and makes learning more fun.

Qmedia for video based instruction

Qmedia is a new tool developed at the University of Virginia that provides new ways to use video for instructional and scholarly purposes. We like to think of it as video, outside of the box. The viewer interacts with the whole screen and can see a wide array of web-based resources that offers a more immersive experience that adds context to support the video's narrative.

Building an effective learning environment | LEARNing To LEARN

Building an effective learning environment | LEARNing To LEARN | GPS for the ELT | Scoop.it

Conclusions The learners must do the learning. We need to make sure that learners are able to work within an environment that helps them do this. In other words, our job as teachers is to create the conditions for success. There are no right or wrong ways to build an effective learning environment. It needs to fit the context in which students will learn. However, before even beginning to design a course or program, we should be thinking of what this learning environment could look like. Technology now enables us to build a wide variety of effective learning environments. But technology alone is not enough; it needs to include other components for learner success. This is not to say that self-managing learners cannot build their own effective, personal learning environments, but they need to consider the other components as well as the technology.

I believe that the role of the teacher is really beginning to change and technology has a large part to play in this. Students now have access to lots of additional information on the internet and via e-books as well as through many resources. Therefore the role of the teacher is to help students make use of all this additional information.

Personalized eLearning: A Customized Approach To Accelerated eLearning - eLearning Industry

Personalized eLearning: A Customized Approach To Accelerated eLearning - eLearning Industry | GPS for the ELT | Scoop.it
The concept of "Personalization" can easily be understood from taking a closer look at some of the existing digital technologies that all of us use. For instance, from the browser that you use to roam the Internet, to the email and messaging systems that you use to stay connected with friends and family, to the digital boxes you use to watch TV shows and movies online - they all offer personalization and customization options.

However, when it comes to eLearning systems, "personalization" takes on a whole new meaning. Personalized eLearning is the act of customizing:

The learning environment (e.g. how the content appears to the learner - font sizes, colors, backgrounds, themes etc.)
The learning content itself (e.g. audio, video, textual, graphical etc.)
The interaction between facilitator, student and the learning content (e.g. mouse, stylus, tap/swipe, keyboard; e.g. using "Gaming", Quizzes, Online discussions, Demonstrate-do-check-reinforce, Adaptive learning approaches, Tutorials)
