“Think about how you do your work,” Halverson instructs. “You’re probably sitting in front of a computer right now. You’ve got a big project you’re trying to come up with. You’re on the phone talking to some dude from Wisconsin, taking notes. You probably have something on your wall with all the sources you’re going to put together for the article. There are online resources and how-to guides for how to write. You’re putting all of this stuff together. You’ve created your own learning environment.”

If you have a Wordpress site most themes today are responsive; if yours is not, find one that is and switch to that.

A Comprehensive Framework For Student Motivation

A Comprehensive Framework For Student Motivation | How to teach online effectively? | Scoop.it
A Comprehensive Framework For Student Motivation

Via Beth Dichter
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

For educators, student motivation is one of the pillars of a academic performance. While the terms are sometimes misunderstood–and risk becoming cliche as we continue to talk about them topically rather than specifically–student motivation and student engagement are prime movers in the learning process. Without either, teaching is an uphill battle.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 18, 8:35 PM

Terry Heick takes the image (as shown above) and relates the 8 key ideas to 8 "core drives of student motivation." Each one is described by Yu-kai Chou (who created this graphic)  and followed by a section called Educator Takeaways and a What if (which is related to education). The eight core drives are:

1) Epic Meaning & Calling

2) Development & Accomplishment

3) Empowerment of Creativity & Feedback

4) Ownership & Possession

5) Social Influence & Relatedness

6) Scarcity & Impatience

7) Unpredictability & Curiosity

8) Loss & Avoidance

The description provided by Yu-Kai Chou relates to gaming, but Terry Heick the links it to education in the Educator Takeways. He then provides a look at how this interpretation could help move us in new directions in our classroom. Why is this important? It has the potential to help us create better assessments, lessons, units and learning models. This is another post that provides much food for thought.

I believe that online courses are an important component of our curricula, but it is not a simple task transitioning from teaching in the classroom to online, and many faculty are not prepared to put in the effort to be successful in doing so. Retention rates are lower, as students always believe they can make time, but somehow time slips away. Therefore there must be more focus on engagement. That is time-consuming for the instructor and the students. Secondly students learn in different ways, so simply posting some instructional material will usually not allow ALL students to learn. Either we must supplement the online learning with some F2F time (as in a hybrid course), or we must proceed to adaptive learning where the student's learning is assessed, and only if they meet the passing criteria can they proceed to the next lesson.

How long does it take to speak a language?

I believe that learning a foreign language is an established training. I've spent my whole life working on mastering languages. We have to practice every day and should communicate with natives as often as possible. If we do not have the time or a chance, we will lose our conversational skills. They say practice makes perfect; whatever I think about this slogan, it seems to be true. At the same time, I am aware of the fact that I will never speak like a native. For me, the most noteworthy is communication. In my view, pronunciation is significant as long as the meaning is concerned. Nowadays we talk about “standard English” which has been used internationally. Many people want to talk like a native. I would like to announce that accents are acceptable as long as they are understandable. I never force learners to sound like native speakers, simply because they are not, besides I am also not a native English teacher. We must teach towards intelligibility, rather than a 'native' accent. Accent reduction in my opinion means increasing correct and easily understandable accent. Moreover, I use a lot of songs in my teaching. Through songs, students discover the natural stretching and compacting of the stream of English speech. Students may orally summarize the spirit or matter of a song or give oral presentations about a song or musician. Many songs tell a story, and these stories can be rewritten or retold to practice narrative or summarizing skills. This method works for my learners exceptionally well. Generally, I think that we learn languages to communicate, and accurate delivery is not the most valuable skill to develop. All in all, everybody needs to improve communication skills, and it is an entire lifetime job, including native speakers. Therefore from my point of view, the answer to the question - how long does it take to speak a language? – is…. It takes a lifetime.

Bad News for PowerPoint Users | Eric Bergman | How to teach online effectively? | Scoop.it
Researchers at Purdue University have some bad news for the 40 million people worldwide who deliver “standard” PowerPoint presentations each and every day.

When PowerPoint is used, the researchers concluded, the audience retains nearly 30 per cent less than if presenters eliminate PowerPoint and simply talk to their audience.

In other words, by simply turning off your projector and using your slides as notes, you can significantly enhance your communication effectiveness.

Sources and Tags: Dennis O'Connor's Curating Secrets | How to teach online effectively? | Scoop.it

There's no question that Dennis O'Connor has found much success on Scoop.it. It wasn't all coincidental, though. Dennis shared with us two of his best curation secrets and tricks:

 

1. Develop multiple sources for your topics
It's important to carefully think through the keywords that you set for your topic so that Scoop.it can crawl the web and provide you with interesting and relevant content and inspiration. In addition to taking full advantage of this, Dennis also uses other tools like Twitter, StumbleUpon, and Prismatic to find content to share on Scoop.it. Once he finds the content he wants to share with his audience, he uses Scoop.it as his social media hub to add value to that content and share it everywhere.

 

2. Tag your posts
Dennis takes a lot of time to tag each of his posts. This allows him, he explained, to assemble publications based upon his tagged topics. When he's using his information on Scoop.it for his E-learning classes, it's easy for him to filter his Scoop.it pages based upon different subjects and easily compile a list of posts and articles on appropriate topics to provide to his students. Something interesting that Dennis does with his tagged articles is to pull them by subject and create "special editions" of his topics on his blog for special classes and events that he is teaching.

This post begins with the author writing about an experience teaching binary numbers...and learning that students may raise their hands to say they understand when in fact they do not. If instead of raising hands you use one of the many free new tools that allow for quick formative assessment you may make a better choice.

Why use free online tools? You get immediate feedback. Some tools will work well with the entire class (such as Socrative or Plicers, where your feedback from all students comes in quickly). If you are have students watching videos Zaption is a great tool to check out as you can embed questions that students need to answer correctly to move on.  Five free tools are discussed in this post:

* Socrative

* Plickers

* Kahoot

* Zaption

* Back Channel Chat Tools

Each is described in more detail in the post. You may also want to check out the comment section. There are a number of additional tools suggested by some readers that may be of interest.
