"MOOCs aren’t interactive, so there’s no real learning [...]" : true or false ?

"MOOCs aren’t interactive, so there’s no real learning [...]" : true or false ? | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it

Via Ana Cristina Pratas
Monica MIRZA's insight:

Is it true ?

 

"[...] Yes, some MOOCs are designed as more passive experiences, where all learners do is watch videos and take multiple-choice tests (again, think compliance training), but many MOOCs are highly active, and interactive, digital learning environments.[...]"

 

The article also suggests 12 ways to make MOOCs more interactive.

Why Scoop.it! is becoming an indispensable Learning Tool | ICT - TICE

Why  Scoop.it!  is becoming an indispensable Learning Tool | ICT - TICE | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it

"Scoop.it collates work from online publications using an online magazine format, and this visual impact alone makes it very effective.

[...] First of all, it’s powerful–it incorporates multiple elements of familiar social media tools. But it’s also very flexible–the mobile app is quite functional for both iPhone and Android, and a toolbar plugin can be installed on browser windows.[...] Students use critical thinking skills to collect, evaluate and analyze content; they may identify trends from discourse; they develop writing skills in original expression; and they interact, communicate and publish to a global audience. But perhaps more importantly, students practice digital citizenship and personal responsibility to lifelong learning. [...]"Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool

Monica MIRZA's insight:

It also makes quite a useful collaborative teaching tool...  :)

Wikipédia : "l'encyclopédie participative en ligne est géniale, mais..." | via @Slatefr | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it
Monica MIRZA's insight:

Ancien contributeur de Wikipedia, David Auerback dresse ici un portrait dense et critique du 'management' de l'encyclopédie libre et gratuite en ligne. Portrait qui pourrait presque évoquer un enterrement de première classe :-|

L'article foisonne de pistes de réflexion et d'information sur ce qui reste un projet égalitaire innovant ouvrant accès à l'information et au savoir. Il s'y confirme qu'une véritable (in)formation à cet outil d'émancipation /démocratisation apparaît corollaire indispensable à cet outil.

 

Outil, vous avez dit outil... réfléchir à son utilisation (ou à son éventuelle instrumentalisation) demeure indispensable -notamment dans une sphère que l'on dit 'virtuelle'.

Creating Concept Maps

Creating Concept Maps | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it

"A concept map is a picture of our understanding of something. It is a diagram illustrating how sets of concepts are related. Concept maps are made up of webs of terms (nodes) related by verbs (links) to other terms (nodes). The purpose of a concept map is to represent (on a single visual plane) a person’s mental model of a concept.

Concept maps provide a useful contrast with essays. With a concept map, a viewer can see both the forest and individual trees. The big picture is clear because all the ideas are presented on one surface. At the same time, it’s easy to see details and how they relate."

"Take a look at this infographic with some surprising stats courtesy of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation via Socrato. In the below image (you’ll wanna click it to enlarge it) you can see that the vast majority of teachers agree that technology helps in the learning process.
