Before Reading or Watching Videos, Students Should Experiment First

Before Reading or Watching Videos, Students Should Experiment First | Instructional systems design | Scoop.it

The study’s conclusion suggests that the current model of the flipped classroom should itself be flipped upside down. The researchers advocate the “flipped flipped classroom,” in which videos come after exploration and not before.

 


Via Nik Peachey
Angela C. Dowd's insight:

Experimenting first sounds good, though I think it depends on the learner and on what is being taught. I like the idea of pushing the envelop to be more inclusive...yet not throwing out things that continue to work (for some types of learners).

Now this post regarding a "Flipped Classroom" approach really has me reflecting upon how I have already incorporated some "flipped" concepts into my pre-service student course.  Time to make curriculum adjustments!

Top 10 Tips to Use Collaboration Tools in eLearning | Instructional systems design | Scoop.it

Collaborative learning is an important part of eLearning. It allows learners to benefit from the experience of their peers, become fully engaged in their own learning experience, and more effectively acquire and retain information.

I agree...being fully engaged in a learning experience improves retention. Nice article, brief and clear.

Happy Friday: My 5 Favorite Moodle sites for 2014

Happy Friday: My 5 Favorite Moodle sites for 2014 | Instructional systems design | Scoop.it

My post, 5 Favorite Moodle sites from back in 2010 is the most popular post of all time on Moodlenews. However, a LOT has changed since 2010 in Moodle aesthetics so here goes a 2nd installment of my favorite sites from around the web since that date.

 

A few notes, responsive themes have really taken Moodle a long way in a short time (all but one of the themes listed is responsive). Most theme advances and development have occurred in only the last year. But this development has really spurred Moodle to greater heights in look and feel and usability (especially across the many devices that are used today).

Via alistairm

This is a good find and I imagine can help in many ways...including fundraising. It would be a good tool for organizations like Blind Babies Foundation who provide family-centered services to support the child's optimal development and access to the world. Also for any organizations who serve seniors who many have progressively worsening macular degeneration and not understand how to get help.

If you want data on sight loss in the UK this is an excellent resource with regional data as well as data by type of sight loss. These figures represent individual lives, stories and struggles to fulfil educational potential. A good reason for learning to teach inclusively, taking advantage of the free TechDis voices (www.jisctechdis.ac.uk/voices) etc.

8 Ways Tech Has Completely Rewired Our Brains | Instructional systems design | Scoop.it

Some cognition experts have praised the effects of tech on the brain, lauding its ability to organize our lives and free our minds for deeper thinking. Others fear tech has crippled our attention spans and made us uncreative and impatient when it comes to anything analog.

Thanks Nik. This was a good read...though I have to admit that I  dream in color even though I grew up watching a black and white TV.

 

Two things I'd like to add. I agree...the light emitted from electronic devices does more than induce feelings of daytime...it also radiates energy that can cause harm.

 

Another thought on video games and knee jerk reactions...seems to me it's more about content than video game technology. Gamification makes use of context and relevance to create meaningful learning experiences. Maybe it's more about how and why we use technology.

Don Olcott: New Pathways to Learning – OER and Non-formal Education

Don Olcott: New Pathways to Learning – OER and Non-formal Education | Instructional systems design | Scoop.it

The growth of non-formal education is expanding teaching and learning pathways for the delivery of global education. This growth, in concert with the expanded use of Open Educational Resources (OERs), is creating a potential synergy between non-formal education and OERs to strengthen the continuum of education and training for people who live in underserved and economically disadvantaged regions of the world. The author’s central theme is that OERs provide a valuable educational resource for use in non-formal education that needs to be expanded, researched and refined. OERs are not formal or non-formal resources. Rather, it is how OERs are used in formal and non-formal education settings that define their context and application for teaching and learning.


Via Andreas Link
Angela C. Dowd's insight:

I like the idea of enrichment and opportunity for all. This sounds like it will benefit everyone. We can all learn from one another.

Also... think of the cultural awareness this will bring.
