The Transmediated Learner: The story of self (part 1)

The Transmediated Learner: The story of self (part 1) | ICT hints and tips for the EFL classroom | Scoop.it

Are teachers and curriculum departments being disintermediated as students engage in self-transmediation, crafting the story of themselves across time and space?” When I first wrote that question down, I had no idea that The Transmediated Self was actually a real term. Rather, I was searching for a term that defined learning in a hyper-connected present where people AND things were constantly plugged in and communicating information. Yet it is a term that has profound implications for self-determination in learning. We do not yet appreciate the always-connected aspect of technology and its impact on in transforming our teacher frames for creating and managing instruction:

LiveSlides: Embed any web content in a PowerPoint presentation

LiveSlides: Embed any web content in a PowerPoint presentation | ICT hints and tips for the EFL classroom | Scoop.it

Kick off your presentation with a YouTube video. Then ask the audience a few ice breaker questions they can answer from their mobile phones. Throw in a live Twitter feed to keep them on their toes. Finish it off with an interactive Q&A session. All of that, and more, is possible when you can insert live web content into your presentation with LiveSlides.

 

Make presentations fun again:

Turn a passive audience into active learners. Interactive activities, like multiple choice questions, engage the audience making presentations more enjoyable.

Audience powered Q&A sessions

Tackle the most relevant issues your audience wants answered by letting them upvote the questions they care about and downvote the ones they don't.

Live-updating word clouds

Know what your audience is thinking. LiveSlides can help reveal prominent ideas by presenting these insights as a live word cloud visualization.

[PDF] Millennial Carreers: 2020 vision

[PDF] Millennial Carreers: 2020 vision | ICT hints and tips for the EFL classroom | Scoop.it

By 2020 Millennials will make up over a third of the global workforce. That’s one reason so many reports about them exist. Some say they are disloyal, self-absorbed and lazy, while others claim they’re a generation of digital entrepreneurs and innovators. Some aim to dispel the myths others have created. Just type “Millennials are...” into a Google search  to see the stereotypes.

This is not just another Millennial report. This report presents new findings with fresh insights  from the perspective of both employers and employees. As world of work experts, we have nearly 30,000 employees advising 400,000 clients on hiring decisions and talent development every year. We find work for 3.4 million people—about half of whom are Millennials.

We carried out quantitative research across 25 countries surveying 19,000 Millennials, including 8,000 ManpowerGroup associate employees and more than 1,500 of our own hiring managers. We asked what they look for in a job, what development opportunities they seek and what would make them stay with an employer. We wanted to understand how different they are or aren’t from the rest of the workforce and from generations before them. We wanted to ensure that the sample represented all working Millennials; not just the top percent of tech-savvy earners, but also the graduates and non-graduates across all industries, income and education levels.

Create the perfect eLearning Portfolio based on 5 psychology principles

Create the perfect eLearning Portfolio based on 5 psychology principles | ICT hints and tips for the EFL classroom | Scoop.it
We use psychology on a regular basis when designing eLearning courses. As eLearning professionals, we must think about how the brain functions and how to engage our online learners on a cognitive level. Every image, text block, and graph triggers a specific response, and it’s our responsibility to know exactly how it will impact the eLearning experience. So, it makes perfect sense that we can also use psychology to attract new clients or land that dream eLearning job. Here are 5 psychology principles that you should know before you start creating or revamping your eLearning portfolio.

[eBook] Teaching every student in the Digital Age: UDL

[eBook] Teaching every student in the Digital Age: UDL | ICT hints and tips for the EFL classroom | Scoop.it

The book is divided into two sections. The first addresses the concept of Universal Design for Learning; the second addresses the practical application of UDL in the classroom. Each chapter opens with a summary of key ideas and a graphic organizer that illustrates how the concepts fit together.

We have also decided to represent this book through a companion Web site(http://www.cast.org/TeachingEveryStudent,shown in Figure P.2).

 

In our view, publishing this work in both traditional form and an online version is the best way to make the material accessible to the maximum number of readers and to accommodate the growing, changing nature of the concept, resources, and examples of UDL. The online version also offers readers the opportunity to give us feedback and exchange ideas with one another. Finally, publishing an electronic version seems the most appropriate way to demonstrate the flexible, interactive nature of networked digital materials.
