Children are taught a valuable (and continuing) lesson in both media/online ethics and a practical primer in finding the right type of image for their projects.

Jen Pollard's curator insight, March 15, 2015 4:41 PM

This is a very important topic - as we continue to see the evolution of print content to digital content, students must understand copyright issues and creative commons licensing.

VoiceThread is a powerful tool being used by many big name organizations, including what is shown here by Discovery Education. VoiceThread brings online education to life by incorporating voice, documents, videos. It even allows others to make text, voice, or video comments. Talk about a much more interactive online experience!

Christopher Pappas: 9 Tips To Apply Adult Learning Theory to eLearning - eLearning Industry

Christopher Pappas: 9 Tips To Apply Adult Learning Theory to eLearning - eLearning Industry | Instructional Technology | Scoop.it
According to the renowned American educator, Malcolm Knowles there are 5 assumptions concerning the characteristics of adult learners, and 4 principles concerning adult learning (andragogy). Despite the fact that Knowles' adult learning theory assumptions and principles were introduced in the 1980's, each can be utilized today to help eLearning professionals create more meaningful learning experiences for adult learners.

Phil Hobrla's curator insight, March 16, 2015 8:09 PM

In order for adult learners to be actively involved in their own learning, they must feel (and know) that they have a voice in regards to the content and delivery of their coursework. The degree to which learners determine how a course will play out is, of course, the prerogative of the instructor, but I think instructors who actively gauge the preparedness and receptivity of their adult learners are liable to get ones who are more engaged and grateful.

Jennifer Kleiner's curator insight, March 16, 2015 8:13 PM

Scooped from Amos's Scoop.it page- Adult learning theory is very important to keep in mind when designing learning strategies for adult education. This is a very helpful resource to easily reference when designing instruction, in particular I would highlight the PURPOSE behind each module and activity and remembering that motivation is key with adult learners.

Samantha Patterson 7's curator insight, March 16, 2015 9:05 PM

This is a good article about adult learning with eLearning. It provides information about Knowles' 5 adult learning theory assumptions that can be translated to modern day eLearning experiences.

I love the idea to use Skype to meet with other classrooms around the country and world! What a wonderful way to introduce students to new cultures and provide them with an applied learning experience. Skype is also a very powerful social tool in higher education through its ability to help students practice job interviews and bring employers from remote campuses to Mason! I can't wait to explore more ideas for using Skype with students in Career Services. 

Lindsay Sprague's curator insight, January 26, 2015 3:05 PM

Skype is a great way to utilize the advancements in communication technology.  Students now have the ability to speak directly with people from all corners of the globe, and this is a great resource for ways to incorporate it effectively.

Blended Learning Can Benefit Students If It Is Done Right | Gallup.com

One of the hottest topics in education in recent years has been Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), which deliver all content through the Internet. Depending on who you listened to, it seemed like MOOCs were going to be both the savior and the death of higher education. It turns out they were neither.

Slack is used at my work for quick, real time internal communication. Rather than emailing or calling one person, a call out can be made to the entire team for assistance. It has also proved to be a useful training tool so that the team members may learn from each other when questions are answered.

Free Technology for Teachers: Best of 2013 So Far...76 Ways to Use Haiku Deck

Free Technology for Teachers: Best of 2013 So Far...76 Ways to Use Haiku Deck | Instructional Technology | Scoop.it

Haiku Deck's Education Case Studies Pinterest board contains 76 examples of Haiku Deck being used by students and teachers. If you're not familiar with it or haven't tried Haiku Deck, here's what you need to know. It's a free iPad app for creating slideshow presentations.

 

There are two features of Haiku Deck that stand out. First, Haiku Deck intentionally limits how much text that you can put on each of your slides. Second, Haiku Deck helps you find Creative Commons licensed images for your presentations. When you type a word or words on your slides you can have Haiku Deck search for images for you. The images that Haiku Deck serves up are large enough to completely fill your slide. You can also upload your own images from your iPad or import images from Instagram and Facebook....

I can't wait for it to be available for Windows or Android. Meanwhile, check out their stunning 76 education presentations on Pinterest or Haiku Deck's Pinterest board of best presentations. Highly recommended!

Tyler Richendollar's curator insight, July 8, 2013 10:21 AM

Teachers need more access to technology in the classroom and more support developing technology-based lessons and integrating it into the classroom.

This is a neat start. 

Jennifer Kleiner's curator insight, March 16, 2015 9:07 PM

This page links to Haiku Deck's pinterest board where there are over 300 examples of how Haiku Deck is being used in education. I love that Haiku Deck makes following best practices for presentations easy through word limits and styling and aggregating photos that meet Creative Commons guidelines. These examples provide a lot of ideas for use in K-12 and higher education.
