MOOCs and the Gartner Hype Cycle: A very slow tsunami

MOOCs and the Gartner Hype Cycle: A very slow tsunami | Haskayne Teaching & Learning | Scoop.it

A lot can change in a year. Twelve months ago, the traditional universities were doomed, condemned to irrelevance by an onslaught of MOOCs. Each new technology goes through five phases: a) the Technology Trigger, b) the Peak of Inflated Expectations, c) the Trough of Disillusionment, d) the Slope of Enlightenment, and finally e) the Plateau of Productivity.

Sherry Weaver's insight:

This is a very balanced article describing the impact of MOOCs on higher education.  What do you think about the timeline the author has proposed? Is it a tsunami that we just can't envision yet?  If so, how are we preparing for its arrival.  Are we making the adjustments required to ride the wave?

Learning about learning outcomes: the student perspective

Learning about learning outcomes: the student perspective | Haskayne Teaching & Learning | Scoop.it

The first ’Learning Outcomes Project’ paper has just been published in Teaching in Higher Education.  It’s called ‘Learning about learning outcomes: the student perspective’, and is based on research conducted with students at the University of Leicester concerning their perceptions about, and uses of, learning outcomes.

The punishable perils of plagiarism - Melissa Huseman D’Annunzio

The punishable perils of plagiarism - Melissa Huseman D’Annunzio | Haskayne Teaching & Learning | Scoop.it

A Ted-Ed clip that demonstrates just how deep the rabbit-hole goes when it comes to plagiarism, and just how many variations of plagiarism there are.  Students often think that paraphrasing without citation is okay or that plagiarism is only if you quote word-for-word without citing your source.  May be a useful link to post on Desire 2 Learn or Blackboard for students to watch on their own.

Sherry Weaver's insight:

Use TED-Ed clips and the "Flip a Lesson" functionality to select a video, add your own questions about the video, provide additional resources and an opportunity to discuss... and you have a great lesson produced in a short period of time!

The Evolution of Bloom's Taxonomy: Original to Revised to Digital

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 4, 7:10 PM

Check out three versions of Bloom's Taxonomy in this visualization. It includes the original Bloom's, the revised Bloom's, and adds on the Digital Bloom's, which provides a range of suggestions as to how students may demonstrate each level. This is another visual that you may want to share with other teachers in your school.

Sue Alexander's curator insight, April 5, 5:21 PM

I love the clarity of the digital verbs! I think the specific content of the "doing" might allow for a bit of repositioning in the  chart, but it's certainly a great starting point in analyzing the tasks and output of a lesson.

Lee Hall's curator insight, April 7, 2:25 PM

It is interesting to see all of Bloom's side by side.

Wordle - Beautiful Word Clouds

Wordle - Beautiful Word Clouds | Haskayne Teaching & Learning | Scoop.it

A fun way to take brainstorming from the class and create a fun visual with it.  Perhaps a way to capture  the list of theories learned by the end of a course, the key lessons learned from a specific activity, the factors that contribute to a business decision, etc.   Would be fun to gather student contributions to a brainstorm and create a word cloud based on their own words.

This special issue presents a series of peer reviewed articles the guest editors believe will aid in increasing the quality of the research focus across a growing field of research and participation from numerous academic fields. Articles in this special issue contrast theoretical and empirical research related to MOOCs through a careful examination of thematic issues from student perceptions, engagement, and participation to campus leadership and decision-making challenges.

I like that the theoretical side is contrasted with the empirical and with student perceptions... It's a fascinating topic to be sure.

A Really, Really Well-Written Set Of Classroom Rules

Joshua Farber's comment, August 17, 2013 1:51 PM
Interesting. I often try to test rule-sets like this by running them past an anecdotal example - in this case, "how would student texting during class be managed by this poster's rules?" Which may expose a dilemma of application - because students texting during class can get an educator a black mark in an impromptu learning walk or unnanounced observation, and because it can tempt other students who cannot afford to be so distracted to think that texting would be a good idea for THEM, I'd define it as a "problem" - but cannot think of many students who would agree. The primary issue here, then: who defines what is a "problem for someone else"? If teacher and student cannot agree on that category, I see little use - and some distraction and danger - in such a set.

Anatomy of a Great Infographic

Anatomy of a Great Infographic | Haskayne Teaching & Learning | Scoop.it

"These days, infographics are all over the web (That means internet). They're eye catching and shareable. However, they've started to get a bad rap due to low quality and over-use. (like your mom) So, what makes a great infographic great infographic? QUALITY CONTROL!"

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 8, 2013 10:15 PM

Are you wondering what your infographic needs to be a great infographic? This post disects an infographic, sharing what is important to include. Sections include:

* A brief look at the history of infographics

* Does it have all the important parts

   * Gotta have brains: data and story

   * Ooo la la visualization

   * Shareability

Additional information as well as links to resources are located under the infographic. If you plan on having students create infographics this year you may want to share this as a tool for discussion as students review infographics and learn to identify great infographics.
