Tech Driving Widespread shift in Teaching Models: Learn Now, Lecture Later Report | Ideas & Communication | Scoop.it

"The traditional lecture model is the standard learning method in most American
classrooms, but there is growing interest in new learning models that are
encouraging students and teachers to "learn now, lecture later."

CDW-G's new report, Learn Now, Lecture Later, looks at the different learning methods teachers and students are using and how technology is supporting the move to these new learning models. The report also examines the challenges that high
schools and colleges must overcome to make a successful transition."

DoodleBuzz: Typographic News Explorer

A new way to explore the news through an experimental interface that allows you to create typographic maps of current news stories.

 

Sometimes one of the difficult things for practitioners is to get students interested in exploring news stories.

 

Doodle Buzz offers an element of fun to research. When "searching" on Doodle Buzz users will find that they discover stories and sources that they don't typically find or read.

 

To find news stories...

- enter a term in the search box,

- click go,

- click-drag (draw) the cursor across the screen to reveal news stories related to the search term.

 

The more users doodle the more stories are revealed.

 

Users can...

- read excerpts from the stories or

- click through to read the full article on the original source.

Graphic Designer Richard Wilde

Graphic Designer Richard Wilde | Ideas & Communication | Scoop.it

"I do have shades of dyslexia and curiously enough, I’ve found numerous other creatives who fall into this category.

 

For me, during my formative years, I took in information differently than most students. This only became clear later on in life that the left-brained academic world was not equipped to educate me.

 

So, because of this inability, I had to educate myself by inventing creative, problem-solving methodology to bypass traditional ways of learning. Eventually, I embraced academia and did so with an understanding of how this world systematically teaches right-brained individuals, which better enabled me to understand better how to educate all students. In short, this deficiency proved to be a great help later on..."

Using OERs in HE in FE: degrees of edupunk?

Using OERs in HE in FE: degrees of edupunk?

Date: 11 Jun 2012Start Time: 11:30 amLocation/venue: University Centre at Blackburn College, University Close Blackburn , UK, BB2 1LH

This event is being hosted as part of the Higher Education Academy's OER Workshop and Seminar Series

11.30-16.00

Information about the event:

The aim of the workshop is to increase delegates’ awareness of OERs and their use in HE in FE. The lack of lecturer time is recognised as a major barrier impeding the use of OERs and therefore the workshop’s interactive nature will provide opportunities for direct engagement with a variety of resources. The event will demonstrate how such resources have been deployed in HE in FE and will make suggestions as to how such initiatives can be effectively recorded. The workshop also intends to encourage pedagogical reflection on the utility of OERs for the delivery of HE in FE.

Top 9 Free Web Tools to Develop Students Creativity

Top 9 Free Web Tools to Develop Students Creativity | Ideas & Communication | Scoop.it

A kindergarten student was sitting in the back seat of the classroom completely immersed into her drawing. Using different colours and shades, she drew what she believed the portrait of the devine. Her teacher soon approached her, looked at the drawing and asked," what are you drawing ? "The child, without even looking up at him, answered " God " The teacher responded " But no one knows what God looks like " The child answered, " They will in a minute ". This is in fact one of the witty quips I learned from Sir Ken Robinson in hiw book Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative
