Why Profs Are Spending So Much Time Writing Crap That Nobody Reads

Why Profs Are Spending So Much Time Writing Crap That Nobody Reads | Instructional Designer Daily | Scoop.it

All of this is very unfortunate. Ideally, the great academic minds of a society should be put to work for the sake of building up that society and addressing its problems. Instead, most Western academics today are using their intellectual capital to answer questions that nobody’s asking on pages that nobody’s reading.

“ The beginning of a new year typically presents individuals with a designated time and opportunity to reflect upon the events of the past 365 days, to cherish the unforgettable moments, to learn from mistakes or disappointments, and most importantly, to set goals for the next chapter in this adventure we call life. In education, we call these types of behaviors “reflective practice”, or the manner in which teachers step back and evaluate the learning environment.”

As in any other profession, we assess what was successful, what didn’t work as planned and/or what needs to be adjusted the next time—all in an effort to improve our craft.

Choosing the Right Products for Your Makerspace - Worlds of Learning

Choosing the Right Products for Your Makerspace - Worlds of Learning | Instructional Designer Daily | Scoop.it
“ Many people associate the Maker Movement with the ‘stuff’ things like 3D printers, but in my opinion, this isn’t what pushes children outside of their comfort zone, it is that opportunity for open-ended exploration that is key. When creating a makerspace, many school districts just go out and buy things that other districts buy, really in essence, just replicating another school districts makerspace. In my opinion though, no two school makerspaces should be exactly alike because no two school communities are exactly alike. In my opinion, every makerspace needs to have their own unique vision and that vision should be written down the form of a mission statement. That statement will help you convey to others what your makerspace is trying to achieve and to help people better understand your space, but it will also help you be able to better select products that are appropriate and meaningful to your particular makerspace. In addition to a mission statement, I cannot stress enough the importance of properly planning your makerspace. ”

Periscope, Twitter’s live video streaming app, is taking the education world by storm.  Since its debut in early 2015, teachers and administrators are trying to figure out how to use Periscope for education and not just as a way for students to stream silly human tricks on live video to their friends.

Before we can get into how to use Periscope for education, let’s first define what exactly Periscope is and how you use it for those of you that are clueless for now.

The Flipped Classroom for Learning and Development

The Flipped Classroom for Learning and Development | Instructional Designer Daily | Scoop.it
“Before we delve into the topic of using the flipped classroom for Learning and Development, let us know what exactly is a flipped classroom.A simple definition of the inverted classroom is given by Maureen J. Lage, “Inverting the classroom means that events that have traditionally taken place inside the classroom now take place outside the classroom and vice versa”. In reality, the definition is broader now:A flipped classroom is an instructional strategy and a type of blended learning that reverses the traditional learning environment by delivering instructional content, often online, outside of the classroom. It moves activities, including those that may have traditionally been considered homework, into the classroom. In a flipped classroom, learners watch online lectures, collaborate in online discussions, or carry out research at home and engage in concepts in the classroom with the guidance of a mentor. The flipped classroom is a learner-centric model that focuses on applying learning, as opposed to the traditional course-centric model.”

Battle of the Toy Robots: BB-8 vs. Dash

Battle of the Toy Robots: BB-8 vs. Dash | Instructional Designer Daily | Scoop.it
“ Toy robots used to be toys that looked like robots. But today's options are far more sophisticated than the bleeping, blooping contraptions from the era of "Buck Rogers" and "Battlestar Galactica." Many have multiple sensors, voice controls, and artificial intelligence. They're real robots that just happen to be toys. But not all toy robots are created equal. To see which ones stand out from the crowd, we're putting five of the most popular models on the market to the test in a battle-of-the-bots showdown. In the weeks ahead, we’ll roll out the full results of the contest. In the meantime, welcome to Round One. In this first heat, Consumer Reports’ Emilio Gonzalez—a mechanical engineer, father, and resident "Star Wars" fan—pitted Sphero’s Star Wars-inspired BB-8 against Wonder Workshop’s Dash.”

Two Excellent Sources of Engaging Science Videos to Use in Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Two Excellent Sources of Engaging Science Videos to Use in Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Instructional Designer Daily | Scoop.it
iPad can immensely enhance the learning of science through the use of a wide range of educational apps designed specifically for this purpose. Over the past few years, we have reviewed a number of these apps each of which is related to a given scientific topic from human anatomy and periodic tables to  apps to help you explore the body in 3D. You can access all of these resources from this page.  Today, we are adding two more interesting apps for science teachers and students. The apps provide you access to a huge library of instructional science videos to use in class with your students.
