Where to Find Quality Images Online by @MarcelinaWrites

Where to Find Quality Images Online by @MarcelinaWrites | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
When you need to find quality images, you need to look through public domain, Creative Commons, and paid sites. Find a list of them here.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

Images are important to the success of content marketing and education. They are what attract consumers and students to your articles because before anyone reads a headline, they look at an image. If the images are clear, relevant, and meaningful, more people will stop to read your content.

Best Practices by Teachers for the Flipped Classroom

Best Practices by Teachers for the Flipped Classroom | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
List of some of the best practices by teachers for the Flipped Classroom.

Via Gust MEES
Alfredo Corell's insight:

The Flipped Classroom approach is been widely implemented in schools and colleges around the world. It is even considered as one of the greatest achievements of 21st century education.

The concept behind it is to reverse the traditional classroom practices with the aid of technology. Students access the already prepared lecture materials at home, in advance of the class and in the class they engage in structured class activities to work through problems with their teachers’ help, further their knowledge and learn through collaboration with fellow students. For the Flipped model to be successful, teachers before its implementation need to assess whether it is appropriate for their curriculum and students. They need to see if their students will be receptive to the new learning environment and upon implementation and use, teachers should employ effective practices to keep the model functioning successfully.

Flipped learning advantages

Tammy Morley's curator insight, January 9, 2014 1:32 AM

Love the idea of flipped learning - so much potential.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, January 28, 2014 9:20 PM

Flipped classroom is a classroom in which students view the lecture components of the class at home, then work with the teacher in class on projects and what previously would have been called homework.


What a flipped classroom model does?
• Students watch lectures at home at their own pace, communicating with peers and teaching via online discussions.
• Concept engagement takes place in the classroom with the help of the instructor.

Y, claro está, si estamos en clase podemos usarlas para tomar nota de lo que dice el profesor. Personalmente, soy un poco más old school y prefiero tomar mis notas en papel para luego digitalizarlas.

Social media has changed the world, and it has the potential to impact education in powerful ways. It can be implemented in innovative ways or it can be totally derailed.

Via Adelina Silva
Alfredo Corell's insight:

Before, we networked and chatted at parties and get-togethers to get caught up. Now, we check a Facebook feed.

Before, we had to pay long-distance phone bills just to hear people’s voices.Now, we can video chat with Skype or Google Hangouts for free.

Before, we had to have a book published or a TV show broadcasted.Now, we can create blogs and podcasts to share our ideas with the world instantly.

Before, we waited for the evening TV news or the morning newspaper. Now, we can check instant Twitter updates on just about anything.

Social media has also changed education, but it hasn’t lived up to the vast potential it has.

tuXccoaching's curator insight, January 14, 2014 8:23 AM

Si queremos un cambio en nuestra educación, debemos basarlo en el aprendizaje del pensamiento crítico.

 

 

El pensamiento crítico en el alumno es crear esa forma de pensar mejorada que se consigue a través de una acción reflexiva,mediante el establecimiento de preguntas ante situaciones o problemas, llegar a conclusiones y buscar soluciones, mediante evaluaciones y comprobaciones bien razonadas.

 

 

 

El alumno debe aprender a pensar con una mente abierta, verificando todas las soluciones y analizando sus perspectivas,interactuando con los demás, esto nos dará como resultado un pensador crítico y ejercitado.

 

El pensamiento crítico implica movimiento, proactividad y participación.

 

 

Para conseguir este objetivo debemos motivar a los alumnos a pensar críticamente, mediante, la innovación del docente, crear un buen ambiente en el aula, facilitar buen feedback, reconocimiento de logros y promover la creatividad.

 

 

Y como dice Jean Piaget...

 

 

"El objetivo principal de la Educación es formar hombres capaces de hacer cosas nuevas que no repitan simplemente lo que otras generaciones han hecho, hombres que sean creativos,que tengan inventiva y que sean descubridores.


El segundo objetivo de la Educación es formar mentes capaces de ejercer la crítica, que puedan comprobar por sí mismas lo que se les presenta y no aceptarlo simplemente sin más"

They can conduct virtual classrooms at a number of places; it allows a teacher to teach up to 10 classrooms at the same time. It makes classes interactive and students can ask questions whenever they want. They can use it to connect their classroom with other classrooms or to connect their students with experts across the world, providing them with connected learning experiences. There are many ways in which teachers and students can derive benefits from using Hangouts in the classroom.

Three Social Trends That Will Influence Education in 2014

Three Social Trends That Will Influence Education in 2014 | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

There are patterns within the trend predictions for 2014 that are worthy of paying attention to. There is strong, if not overwhelming evidence that behaviour patterns of students, educators, employees and professionals are moving towards the use of social tools for learning, working and teaching. Collaborating seamlessly face-to-face and at a distance, bringing the human element to virtual interactions, and personalized learning will prevail in 2014; each facilitated by technology. But it’s not going to be about the technology, it will be about making connections by voice and/or visual, contributing to new knowledge, and learning with and from others—all mediated through social media. It will be the behaviours of students, lifelong learners and educators—their use of technology, specifically social media applications that will influence education in the upcoming year.

 
Via Dennis T OConnor
Alfredo Corell's insight:

Conclusion
Though we can predict and make an educated guess what the year 2014 will hold for education, we won’t really know until we are in it—knee deep. The year 2012 named by the New York Times as the Year-of-the-MOOC, shook the foundations of education, and no one saw it coming. Will social media influence education by increasing collaboration, humanize the learning experience, and support personalized learning in 2014? Time will tell.

"So, what are QR Codes, you ask?  Well, you know what barcodes are,  like when you buy something at the store and the clerk scans a code to enter the item and amount into the till?  The QR (Quick Response) Code is kind of like that, except that it offers much more information.  Quite often the QR Code will give you a link to a website, or a text message, image, etc.  To read the QR Code, you need to install a QR Code Reader onto your device.  There are many available for free.  I like using i-nigma, seen below. Simply open the app, point it at a QR Code and your device will do the rest.  Try it with the code above.  It should take you back to this blog."
