narative structures and codes - some great dot point information.

Aurion Learning's curator insight, August 2, 2013 1:38 AM

Claude Levi-Strauss was a social anthropologist who "found that stories that are told unconciously mirror the values and myths of a culture."

 

Storytelling is an effective way of communicating values and information.

Welcome to Educating Modern Learners

Welcome to Educating Modern Learners | iEduc | Scoop.it

In the time it takes to read this, about 7,500 people from around the world will gain regular access to the Internet for the first time. Twelve in the next second. One point one million in the next 24 hours.

 

By the end of this decade, 5 billion people around the globe will have access. Access to what is already close to becoming the sum of human knowledge. Access to millions of tools and apps that now run from ‘the cloud’ or on the devices we carry in our backpacks and our pockets.

 

And, most importantly, access to one another.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 19, 10:46 PM

Access does give everyone freedom to learn. The question is what are they learning? Learning, schooling, and education are not interchangeable words. They each carry different meanings. We can learn at any time. Schooling is something that is mandated and it does not follow that learning per planned curricula happens. Education is a continuing the transmission of a healthy society.

"Massive open online courses (MOOCs) are still pretty new but more and more universities, platform providers and publishers are beginning to create MOOCs to raise their profile and showcase high-quality materials. But there is a risk that reputations can take a serious hit if materials and data are being used incorrectly, or without permission."

Excellent analysis of the copyright issues that educators need to consider as they  utilise the open online course revolution. There are such opportunities for learning and teaching but TIME needs to be given to ensuring that resources used are attributed appropriately, are legitimate and permissions sought where necessary. Many MOOC platforms are commercial in nature and profit focused (in the long term) so Statutory licences and Educational exceptions are  not applicable.

The blended classroom is beginning to happen in many school districts. This infographic provides a great overview of blended learning. In addition to the section shown above, which looks at how teacher-led instruction connects to quality digital learning time to group work and projects (and the ongoing cycle) you will find sections on:

* Turning Computer Time into Quality Learning Time

* Empowering Teachers with Real-Time Student Performance Information

* Tying It All Together

Online learning happens in a variety of ways. This post looks at some of the critical features that must be included for an online or blended class to be successful.

Teaching is often equated to stand and deliver lecturing. That is the easy part. I found teaching was the one-on-one conversations and small group conversations where students challenged me with questions and I responded in kind.  Teaching done as conversation is always the key to learning when it happens and it is most unpredictable.

Mindsets: Why Do Some People Learn Faster?

Mindsets: Why Do Some People Learn Faster? | iEduc | Scoop.it
Do we ignore mistakes, brushing them aside for the sake of our self-confidence? Or do we investigate the errors, seeking to learn from the snafus? The latter approach, suggests a series of studies, could make you learn faster.

 

Jonah Lehrer writes:

 

One of the essential lessons of learning, which is that people learn how to get it right by getting it wrong again and again."

 

"Education isn’t magic. Education is the wisdom wrung from failure."

 

"A new study, forthcoming in Psychological Science, and led by Jason Moser at Michigan State University, expands on this important concept. The question at the heart of the paper is simple: Why are some people so much more effective at learning from their mistakes? After all, everybody screws up. The important part is what happens next. Do we ignore the mistake, brushing it aside for the sake of our self-confidence? Or do we investigate the error, seeking to learn from the snafu?"

 

Growth Mindset 

 

"It turned out that those subjects with a growth mindset were significantly better at learning from their mistakes. Because the subjects were thinking about what they got wrong, they learned how to get it right."

 

"Fear of failure (fixed mindset) can actually inhibit learning."

 

Praise: How Matters

 

Students praised for their intelligence almost always chose to bolster their self-esteem by comparing themselves with students who had performed worse on the test.

 

In contrast, kids praised for their hard work were more interested in the higher-scoring exams. They wanted to understand their mistakes, to learn from their errors, to figure out how to do better.

 

The experience of failure had been so discouraging for the “smart” kids that they actually regressed.

 

The problem with praising kids for their innate intelligence — the “smart” compliment — is that it misrepresents the psychological reality of education. It encourages kids to avoid the most useful kind of learning activities, which is when we learn from our mistakes.

 

Foresaking Self-Improvement for the Sake of Self-Confidence

 

Unless we experience the unpleasant symptoms of being wrong the mind will never revise its models.

 

We’ll keep on making the same mistakes, forsaking self-improvement for the sake of self-confidence. Samuel Beckett had the right attitude: “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.”

Project Planning a MOOC

 

The course teams involved with our MOOCs included experienced academics with familiarity in developing materials on a learning platform. Nonetheless, for each of them it was their first experience of MOOCs, as it was for the project planning team.

 

 

Delivering a MOOC

 

A range of styles and learning methods were adopted by the four MOOCs, appropriate to the subject matter covered. A MOOC structure of six weeks and 5-10 student effort hours per week of study appeared to be just right for the majority of students (55%). Some considerations for future delivery include:

 

< Well designed announcements at the beginning and end of each week that articulate with the topic coverage, learning activities and assessment methods can be effective at maintaining student interest and motivation.


< Management of forum threads and posts is a critical factor in dealing with massive scale short courses to ensure the majority of students are not affected negatively by the behaviour of a small number of the community, while preserving the openness of the discussion areas.

 

< The Coursera platform tools are significant and comprehensive in terms of plotting overall student activity, allowing evaluation of assessment data, as well as usage statistics on video resources and other learning activities; however, further refinement of these tools to enable both students and teaching staff to understand their progression at an individual level is necessary (and underway).
