Julie Bourguignon's curator insight, March 2, 4:58 AM

Do skills get obsolete? This is a list of important skills based on frequency of use, rather than actual purpose. This is a comprehensive list, but remembering to carry your phone/tablet charger should be part of it!

SMARTERTEACHER's curator insight, March 2, 11:10 AM

There have been more changes in the last 10 years than in the first 40 I spent on the planet.  These exponential changes are only scratched in this list.

A Quick, No-Nonsense Guide to Basic Instructional Design Theory

A Quick, No-Nonsense Guide to Basic Instructional Design Theory | Instructional Technology and Design | Scoop.it

"Of the many eLearning theories that influence the practice, three of them are used by professionals on a daily basis...Practice and theory actually goes hand in hand. This is true not only in instructional design but in any other field or discipline. Theory, far from crippling your practice, will actually help you improve the quality of your eLearning material. While a learning theory won't answer all of your design problems, it offers clarity throughout your process and directs you toward finding solutions."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 4, 2014 10:02 AM

Learn more about three learning theories of instructional design in this post:

* Constructivism

* Cognitivism

* Behaviorism

Why? Each theory looks at "HOW" students learn. Understanding the theories helps you design activities that will help learners move forward in their learning process.

The infographic provides a definition for each of the theories and then provides ideas on what each theory helps the learner practice.

As with most infographics from SHIFT's eLearning Blog, this post also provides additional information on each of the three theories as well as links to additional resources.

Explore this post to better understand why these theories are important to all teachers, in online learning, blended learning and face2face situation.

Benefits of Synchronous and Asynchronous e-Learning

Lamccainreed's insight:
"Both learning learning types have very unique benefits and limitations to online learning. Er et al., (2009) suggests that in order to overcome these limitations the two learning types should be integrated and utilized to support student needs within an online learning environment called blended learning."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 9, 2014 9:18 PM

This issue of the UKED magazine has one article that you should check out. They surveyed teachers and asked ideas they had found on Twitter and implemented in their classroom. The top 25 are shared in this article, and many include a link to additional resources. There are many that you will know, but there are a few that were new to me (at least, the acronyms the used were). Below is a list of five of the ideas, which they refer to as pedagogies. Check out the link to see a larger version of the image above as well as additional information on each.(And this article starts on page 19 in the magazine.)

* FiSH feedback (which stands for Friendly, Informative, Specific and Honest feedback)

* DIRT feedback (which stands for Dedicated Improvement and Reflection Time)

* Virtual Global Exchanges

* Takeaway Homework
