Content is no longer king. Here are five things that are.

Content is no longer king. Here are five things that are. | ICT for Education | Scoop.it

A huge amount of what we’ve traditionally call ‘content’ in learning is actually instructional design: the pacing and variety of activities, the flow, the challenge of zeroing in on the best and most enjoyable way to help someone master a particular skill. Those elements aren’t going anywhere.

UX is king.

The problem with UX (user experience) is that customers only really notice its absence. If you absolutely nail the UX of your digital product, the only people who will congratulate you are UX nerds like me. If you mess it up, though, you’ll know about it soon enough. You’ll notice the complaints. You’ll notice the attrition. You’ll notice the churn.

Elke Das's curator insight, October 24, 2015 5:56 AM

Spannende consequentie voor onderwijs, als niet de vakinhoud er meer toe doet, maar wat je ermee doet, wat je ermee kunt en wat je ervaart.

1. user experience

2&3. toegankelijkheid en keuzemogelijkheden

4. kosten

5. data

 

Maar dan komt de toets ... interessant.

Coding is the New Literacy - Think Playgrounds, Not Playpens - FRACTUS LEARNING

Coding is the New Literacy - Think Playgrounds, Not Playpens - FRACTUS LEARNING | ICT for Education | Scoop.it
There is no denying that coding is snowballing in importance across schools all around the world. Whether it’s Scratch, Programming Games or the Hour of Code, an understanding of software and the ability to code is fast becoming an essential skill for all 21st century learners.

At a recent TEDx event in Jackson Mississippi, Professor Marina Bers discussed her research into the design and study of innovative learning technologies to promote children’s positive development. How does this research manifest and present itself in the real world? Well programming robots of course!

Creating an Authentic Maker Education Rubric - Edutopia

Creating an Authentic Maker Education Rubric - Edutopia | ICT for Education | Scoop.it
While many teachers are excited about the maker movement and may even be creating projects for their classrooms, assessment can be puzzling even to veteran classroom teachers. How can teachers prove that deep, rich learning is occurring through making? How do we justify a grade to students and parents alike, especially to the student who "just isn’t good at art"? By crafting a three-part rubric that assesses process, understanding, and product, teachers can rest assured that they are covering all the bases.

George Siemens: Dual Layer Mooc? Interesting Spin.

George Siemens: Dual Layer Mooc? Interesting Spin. | ICT for Education | Scoop.it
You recently launched the DALMOOC, which you created with a focus on improving the social experience of learners – can you tell me a bit about the structure and format you have chosen?

We call it a dual layer MOOC, but we don’t mean that in a binary sense, it’s more like saying there are two pathways to take. You can either take a structured pathway – the way that you see with a lot of MOOCs that are run, say, on Cousera or edX – and that’s a heavy teacher focus with guidance. As in, you click through to the next level.

We’ve created a second level that we’re calling more of the ‘social layer’ and we’re basically asking students to engage with one another and to create artefacts that reflect their understanding and to share those artefacts.

In the learning process we need different cycles of scaffolding – there are times when you come across a new idea completely and you can’t really create and socialise around it effectively because you just don’t know anything. So, there may be a cycle by which the learner follows a traditional structure or pathway but as soon as they become more confident they move into social and more emerging formats. In a way they’re oscillating between these two elements of the MOOC: structure and linear versus emergent and social.

The actual title of this article is: "

George Siemens: ‘Students need to take ownership of their learning’

I focused on Siemens design of multiple pathways through a MOOC.  His description of the design as "oscillating between these two elements of the MOOC: structure and linear versus emergent and social." triggers some interest. 


Social engagement in any online class is a precious and memorable experience.

As with any other type of education, we—as educators—can’t make assumptions that students have the necessary knowledge to make good decisions when surfing the web. And even if they do—they’re kids, so yeah, they constantly need to be reminded of what’s cool and what’s not.

With the wide variety of resources available for teachers, there’s no reason we shouldn’t be promoting the importance of behaving safely and responsibly in the digital world. Speaking of resources, check out the nifty infographic shown below, one that can be used to address various aspects of digital citizenship.
