Collaborative learning techniques: A handbook for college faculty | Instructional and learning strategies | Scoop.it
Jack Dempsey's insight:

Lots of useful information, plus some related theory. It was recommended to me as the "best" book on collaborative learning by a colleague that has taught using CL tecniques for years. It is not totally exhaustive (e.g., it doesn't consider team-based learning), but almost everything in the book is clear and practical for university and high school instructors.

Cases 'n' Places: Global Cases in Educational and Performance Technology

Edited by:
Stewart Marshall, The University of the West Indies
Wanjira Kinuthia, Georgia State University

Information Age Publishing

 

Practitioners in the field of educational technology require a high level of problem solving, critical thinking, and interpersonal skills to deal with learning issues that are often complex and multidimensional. Unfortunately, there are few opportunities for providers of learning services and learners to practice authentic instructional design or educational technology as part of their academic preparation and/or training.

This book provides material that learners can use to interact, reason and apply their problem solving skills in realistic and engaging cases. Because of the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary nature of the field and the cases, this book is useful not just in educational technology, but also in other fields. A “Facilitator Guide” is provided for each chapter for teachers and trainers using this book with their learners.

Some strategies are particularly suited to younger students, where often the names that teachers have for these strategies provide a 'shorthand' way of communicating to students that they wish them to provide peer feedback.

I think Pinterest is great for teachers to collect their ideas, but their are some things posted on Pinterest that are not appropriate for students to see.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, June 21, 2013 6:56 AM

This is a great example of how to use the Infographic format to educate and share knowledge with others.  It make sense that a teacher would do it.  Fantastic!

Audrey's curator insight, March 8, 5:38 PM

Once you start using these two learning strategies teaching becomes a real pleasure as students will be teaching the topics.  In addition they will be able to give evaluative and analytical commentary.

All three need to be used when necessary. Even in a world with high levels of connectivity, we need someone to occasionally explain the why and what behind our learning and learning remains a socially constructed process. We learn most richly with others which brings us around to connection.

Learning Through Digital Media » How I Used Wikis to Get My Students to Do Their Readings

Learning Through Digital Media » How I Used Wikis to Get My Students to Do Their Readings | Instructional and learning strategies | Scoop.it

KEN'S KEY TAKEAWAY

This author does a great job of explaining how he uses Wikis to help students organize their thoughts before and after class meetings.  I have used wikis in the past, but I prefer blogs.  My ideal situation would be if a leader took the best of the blogs and created a wiki.  Maybe next semster?

Ken

 

"We have heard the complaint or issued it ourselves one too many times: “They don’t read!”

 

But can Digital Media provide some simple pedagogical models to promote a more active engagement with that most ancient and passive form of learning: the reading assignment? In this article, I describe the use of Wikis (web pages that people can easily edit as a group) to get students to summarize, ask questions, and comment on a reading before they even meet for class. And while many new—and old—tools can be used to accomplish similar results, what is innovative about this approach is that whereas before reading and writing was something students were supposed to do individually in the isolation of their rooms or the library, now—thanks to Wikis—it is a project they tackle collaboratively as a class. The goals of this critical pedagogy are thus both modest and radical, at the intersection of old and new technologies: to use Digital Media to change the way students interact with texts."

 

Assignment provided and reflection on it's impact on student learning. A really worthwhile read!

This has been on my mind a lot lately. It frustrates me that so many teachers are ready to gather around Wikipedia like a pinata and beat it down. It is still sooooooo young. It can become something really special if we nurture it and encourage wise use. For example, the most powerful part is not the front page but by going under the hood and looking at the discussions about what should be on the front page. Helping our students find those discussions is so important. Ken

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi: Motivating People to Learn

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi: Motivating People to Learn | Instructional and learning strategies | Scoop.it

Now, flow is a type of intrinsic motivation, that is, there you do what you're doing primarily because you like what you're doing. If you learn only for external, extrinsic reasons, you will probably forget it as soon as you are no longer forced to remember what you want to do. Nor will you be motivated to learn for its own sake. Whereas if you are intrinsically motivated, you're going to keep learning as you move up and so you are in this lifelong learning mode, which would be the ideal.

The Myth of Learning Styles

The Myth of Learning Styles | Instructional and learning strategies | Scoop.it

The most popular current conception of learning styles equates style with the preferred bodily sense through which one receives information, whether it be visual, auditory, or kinesthetic (for some reason, no one claims that there are tactile or olfactory learners). We use this sensory definition of learning styles in the examples below, but our conclusions apply equally to other definitions.

Linda Alexander's comment, July 9, 2012 8:29 AM
While many valid points were certainly made, the article doesn't bust any myths. Foremost, too many folks are capitalizing on learning style books and programs that are not grounded in scientific evidence and may actually harm the way we "think about thinking" and classroom learning. We need to move beyond popular psychology, left and right brain divisions, and attempts to number specific learning styles; theories and programs not thoroughly vetted by evidenced-based research or the cognitive sciences. The brain is far more complex, holistic and malleable than generally believed today. The continual efforts to divide and conquer brain functionality limits the way we view human intelligence, creativity and sparking individual potential. Nonetheless, most of us readily admit we've generally advanced in our thinking with kudos to some of the early learning styles and multiple intelligence myth busters. Moreover, we continue to learn more about processing skills, learning and intelligence in ways that will open doors for children and serve positive purposes in classrooms....
