Targeting 6 Social Learning Needs in eLearning Environments

Targeting 6 Social Learning Needs in eLearning Environments | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it

"When it comes to successful eLearning design, everybody should agree that there’s no such thing as too much information about how the human brain operates. It’s wired for social learning. Our respective environments actually shape our brains and the rest of our bodies."


Via Beth Dichter
Helen Teague's insight:
Beth Dichter's insight:

SH!FT has published a new post that looks at how one can meet social learning needs in an online environment. The post includes a link to a short video (~3 minutes) that looks at "the application of neuroscience to organizational development."

The six areas are also found in a face2face environment (although there may be students whom do not experience all of them).

To create a more effective eLearning course consider these areas as you design it:

1. Belonging to a group

2. Ability to express

3. Ability to compete

4. Ability to support and be supported by other learners

5. Ability to see what's being learned

6. Excitement about applying learning

More information is available on each of these concepts in the post.

The Challenges and Realities of Inquiry-Based Learning

The Challenges and Realities of Inquiry-Based Learning | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it
As education continues the march toward a student-driven, project-oriented approach that values intelligent solutions to open-ended problems, it won’t be sufficient to focus on the wonderful discoveries and authentic work that result from an inquiry-based system. Instead, a far more difficult issue will come to the fore: How will we know if inquiry-based learning is successful, and what non-standardized measures of achievement, like better attitude, apply?
Helen Teague's insight:

Post by Thom Markham: "This is a steep challenge because it forces education to cross a philosophic divide. Inquiry-based learning is disruptive to test-based standards and, by extension, the industrialized system itself. Tests reward the right answer, and even brief essays are expected to abide by the perimeters of known knowledge and standardized terms. But open-ended problems result in idiosyncratic solutions, derived from a process of exploration in which students practice evidence-finding, thoughtful exchange, and creative design. During that process, they change and grow as people, not just as test-takers. It will take thoughtful development of new metrics, some strange to education, to develop an assessment system that captures the richness of inquiry-based education."

Video Games Are the Future of Education - Fact or Fiction? - Masters and PhDs

Video Games Are the Future of Education - Fact or Fiction? - Masters and PhDs | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it

Video games are playing an increasing role in school curricula as teachers seek to deliver core lessons such as math and reading—not to mention new skills such as computer programming—in a format that holds their students’ interests. Some herald this gamification of education as the way of the future and a tool that allows students to take a more active role in learning as they develop the technology skills they need to succeed throughout their academic and professional careers.

Few would argue that video games can do it all in terms of education, says Scot Osterweil, a research director in Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Comparative Media Studies program and creative director of the school’s Education Arcade initiative to explore how games can be used to promote learning. But games are a powerful learning tool when combined with other exploratory, hands-on activities and ongoing instruction from a teacher acting more as a coach than a lecturer, he adds.

Yes, we've all seen these kind of things before but I don't recall seeing one addressing collaboration.  And since collaboration is good and is an activity that results in knowledge sharing (as well as possibly sharing an alcoholic beverage as two along the way) I thought that I'd pass it along.  It just begs "to be" something that you'll hang on your bulletin board.

Millions of Americans write about their day-to-day lives, failures, successes, and adventures in journals. Why? What about journal writing is so satisfying? Researchers around the world have explored the impact of recording feelings and events. Here is just a selection of insights from their research: 1. Journaling restores your immune cells. A researcher from the University of Texas at Austin found that regular journaling strengthens immune cells (T-lymphocytes). 2. Journaling reduces stress. A 2010 study out of the University of Eastern Michigan found that among (stressed) college students, journaling about emotional stressors reduced anxiety significantly. 3.
