Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, May 4, 2015 9:21 AM

Librarians, you can think of using a blended model for some of the professional development you offer.  Possibly you begin a workshop with some face to face time.  Then move online to continue your conversation through Edmodo, a blog, a Facebook page, etc.  Later, you can consider meeting again face to face to showcase the learning.

Carina Bethea's curator insight, June 7, 2015 9:00 PM

This study actually proves that digital/online learning is generally more effective than traditional learning. I can honestly say that I was a bit surprised. I am a firm believer in classroom settings as I felt as if I was "forced" to pay a lot more attention when sitting in front of the teacher, but I guess I am not the majority. 
Now the next question is "which kind" of digital learning is best: distance education, online learning or blended learning? If I had to guess, I would guess blended learning, because it combines face-to-face teaching with online learning. That leaves the students and teachers with a lot more options for communication and learning/teaching methods.

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 21, 2014 4:55 PM

Once you find emails in your inbox from students excited about the upcoming week of school regarding the projects they'll be working on, you know you've successfully hooked them on learning. I tried to implement twitter in the classroom last year but I found it a little daunting to try. The way this school set up the project was getting staff on board by joining Twitter and activetly tweeting. Typing letters to the principal and sending through social media mediums like Twitter, is an effective way of spotlighting student work. The teacher even had kids doing extra work because they enjoyed creating for the classroom. They developed QR codes to link to specific classroom sites such as frequently used gaming applications and websites. Great idea! I now know it's possible for third graders to effectively use social media in the classroom!
