No way around this - essential for future teaching and learning is the need to be connected, belonging to communities of learning that are supportive and believe in transformative education!

Shared online videos have become quite popular. These streamed videos are so pervasive that 69% of Internet users and 52% of adults in the United States have watched or downloaded videos online (Purcell, 2010). It was predicted that videos would represent 50% of total data transfers on the Internet by 2012 (Madden, 2007). These statistics leave little doubt as to the rising importance of shared online videos for educational purposes.

Survey of 15,000 Quebec university students shows they’re “old school” when it comes to teaching technology.

The study was conducted by Dr. Venkatesh in partnership with Magda Fusaro, a professor in the department of management and technology at Université du Québec à Montréal. Together, they conducted a pilot project at UQAM before rolling the survey out in 2011 to a dozen universities across the province, to which 15,000 undergraduate students and more than 2,500 instructors responded (for response rates of 10 percent and 20 percent respectively).

The Ultimate Guide to The Use of Facebook in Education

The Ultimate Guide to The Use of Facebook in Education | iEduc | Scoop.it

"There is a growing controversy over the use of Facebook in education.Some argue for its integration and others disfavour it. I believe that the main reason behind this controversy is the lack of solid empirical researches about the overall value of not only Facebook but all other popular social networking in education. There are , however, some researchers ( like Crook and Harrison ,Charnigo, Barnett-Ellis, Hewitt and Forte, Mathews, Mazer and Murphy ) who have written about the potential of social networking in education, yet only few studies have specifically addressed its role in pedagogy."

Distance Education for Teacher Professional Development

Distance Education for Teacher Professional Development | iEduc | Scoop.it

"In the future, we may all learn via the Internet, with seamless on- and off-line learning opportunities, and distance education, unlike face-to-face learning, offers opportunities for scale. Before we reach this shimmering future, we should ask three vital questions about our current reality:

Is distance education a viable solution to attain the kind of high quality teachers students need?
If so, how can we develop, deploy, and measure distance education for teachers and how do we define and measure impact?
Can distance education achieve both quality and scale or are they mutually exclusive?"

Organize, Share and Discuss Valuable Learning Resources Into Cloudscapes

Organize, Share and Discuss Valuable Learning Resources Into Cloudscapes | iEduc | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Cloudscapes are collections of "clouds" about a certain topic. A "cloud" can be anything of relevance to learning and teaching clike an essay, a presentation, a resource, tool or event.

 

A cloudscape is therefore a user-driven collection of learning materials/resources pulled together for a specific need.

 

A cloudscape contains multiple elements:

1) Content - the actual text content

2) Cloudstream - tracking all the editing activities in the collection

3) Clouds - individual information objects

4) related Tweets

5) an RSS feed

6) a discussion area

 

Cloudworks, the platform where cloudscapes are born, is an open repository of educational and learning materials that motivates participants to share, find and discuss learning and teaching ideas.

 

Although the word "curation" is never used on the site or in the related documentation, this is yet another example of how the convergence of open repositories, open content and sharing platforms like this one, provide a natural and fertile ground for spontaneous curation approaches.

 

On this platform users can create topical learning collections by bringing together a selected set of existing content resources.

 

 

Cloudworks is developed by the Institute of Educational Technology at The Open University in the UK and it is part of the Open University Learning Design Initiative (OULDI) project.

 

Example of a cloudscape: http://cloudworks.ac.uk/cloudscape/view/2035

Just finished chapter 8 in High Impact Instruction by Jim Knight.   To summarize:  

 

Cooperative learning is any structured, sytematic learning activity in which groups of learners work together to achieve a common goal.  It is a high impact strategy because it:

 

ensures engagement

facilitates formative assessment

facilitates differentiated instruction

allows students to collaboratively construct knowledge

develops students' communication skills

prepares students for life after school

 

It is most successful when teachers:

 

understand learning structure

create positive interdependence

teach expectations

teach social skills

determine optimum makeup of groups

manage time successfully

use an attention signal

 

Five learning structures that are easy"

 

turn to your neighbor

think, pair, share

jigsaw
