Vialogues : What is Writing, Anyway?

Vialogues : What is Writing, Anyway? | Higher Ed Technology | Scoop.it

Kevin Hodgson says, "We often have discussions about whether or not technology and media and connectiveness is changing our perceptions of what it means to write."

 

And so begins a comment riff between us (I hope among us if others will join in) on his found poem/video "What is Writing, Anyway?".  All of this is made 'frictionless' (read--easy) by Vialogues ( https://vialogues.com/).  Vialogues allows you to upload videos, use youtube videos or borrow from others on the site which you can mark up.  The annotations can include Q&A, multiple choice questions, and comments/threaded discussion.  Comment and threaded discussion are the star attrations of the show.

 

Here is vialogue based on a video that one of Kevin's students created for his class this past Spring:  https://vialogues.com/vialogues/play/4012 ; I am sure Kevin and his student would appreciate some useful comments and discussion.  It is open to the public for the moment so play nice.

 

It should be obvious to any teacher how this jacks into our students' love of video/YouTube/Vimeo/allthings vid.  We have hacked the vid with text, but I think this is quite a bit better than the generic and juvenile commentariat at YouTube otherwise known as troll magnets. 

 

I would like to see people use this to open up their workflow as they comment on how they used certain tools in making videos and what thought and work choices they made. Think of it as a director's commentary to a DVD.  I would really value such and I think Vialogues can manage it.

 

I would like to see the addition of other embeddable media here: slideshares, scribr, box, dropbox, but I am happy for now.  And it is FREE.

7 Things You Should Know About Navigating the New Learning Ecosystem | EDUCAUSE.edu | Higher Ed Technology | Scoop.it

The LMS was once the undisputed center of the digital learning ecosystem. But on many campuses, the situation has changed such that the campus online learning environment might be better viewed as a continuum, with the LMS at one end and a student’s own collection of applications, tools, and websites at the other. This proliferation of tools has created a more robust and varied teaching and learning environment, one that is frequently managed actively by students or by faculty who are seeking alternatives not offered by local IT. The value may extend beyond students’ relationship with technology, helping them become better organizers and more savvy consumers as they assume more responsibility for their own learning.

Steps Toward a Disruptive Innovation Approach to Understanding and Improving Higher Education Outcomes

 

The cost of college has skyrocketed during the last two decades, rising by 429 percent, a rate that’s even higher than the rate for health care. To cover these costs students have borrowed ever-larger amounts resulting in an average debt at graduation now exceeding $27,000. Yet only 50 percent of students pursuing a bachelor’s degree—and 21 percent of those pursuing an associate’s degree—complete their college programs.

 

Clearly, the great challenge facing higher education today is to contain costs while at the same time improving outcomes—in short, to increase productivity.

A Digital Humanist Puts New Tools in the Hands of Scholars - Technology - The Chronicle of Higher Education

A Digital Humanist Puts New Tools in the Hands of Scholars - Technology - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Higher Ed Technology | Scoop.it

When Daniel J. Cohen went to work at George Mason University in 2001, its Center for History and New Media boasted a name and little else. Run from the office of its founder, Roy Rosenzweig, the center soon graduated to a modular trailer jokingly called "the van in the parking lot with the fiber-optic line running into it." Raccoons took refuge beneath it.

 

Today the center is a well-oiled machine with more than 100 Web projects, which reach 16 million people. Its staff works in an office suite that feels like a dot-com, Nintendo station included. And Mr. Cohen's specialty of digital humanities—thinking about how technology can advance scholarship in fields like history—is ascendant, with popular-press write-ups and a growing presence at major academic conferences.

Five Reasons Getting Students to Talk is Worth the Effort | Faculty Focus

Five Reasons Getting Students to Talk is Worth the Effort | Faculty Focus | Higher Ed Technology | Scoop.it

It may seem odd but getting students to talk is a positive pedagogical strategy, even though their discourse is a novice’s discourse.

Professor Maryellen Weimer describes 5 reasons to prove that students talking is worth the effort:

1- Students learn content when they talk about it.

2- Talking lets students learn from each other.

3- Talking gives students the opportunity to practice using the language of the discipline.

4- Talking connects students with the content. 

5-Talking connects students with each other.

 

It’s the task of the teacher to face the challenge, promote and support students, for example, by adding form and substance to the discussions.
