For those that are lifelong learners  and in the learning mode as opposed to the knowing mode.  Let me count the ways to get a message across no matter what the age of the student is.

Rocio Watkins's curator insight, February 22, 2014 10:34 PM

Marzano's famous "Nine" continue to be the topic of many professional development agendas, and continue to deliver research-based and improved student outcomes.  A "must-know" for the teaching vocation.

Quelques repères historique sur la distance en formation

Megan Schormann's curator insight, January 13, 2014 12:37 PM

Though not critical to my project. I thought important that I know how the schooling has changed and how it has been enforced through the internet. 

Damon Ing's curator insight, July 3, 2016 12:16 AM
This article discusses in detail the alternatives to the traditional classroom. It offers a different variety of ideas that could be used to enhance the traditional distance education model. It is interesting to see that flexibility is one of the strongest benefits to distance learning and has become very popular in other countries. Read on to see the authors opinion on some very important topics.

Online students and teachers are no different from the rest of academia

Online students and teachers are no different from the rest of academia | Instructor characteristics for online teaching | Scoop.it

David Newton: 

 

Demand for online higher education is at record levels – yet the model remains a mystery for many. For David Newton, the only mystery is why everyone thinks it's so unusual

 

So what are online students like? They're just like any other students pursuing academic objectives. The only real difference is that they tend to have more 'real world' experience. Because a lot of my students are in employment, they are much quicker to grasp theory and see how it can be put into practice. They therefore push us to reflect that in the course content; tutorials will commonly feature their real-life experiences, a benefit for all.

Online courses are for those who have a busy life. I mean, my college is not that far but i do have a busy life. Working from home plus take care of my little precious daughter. But as i know being a online student will keep me away from being socialize which i don't prefer to do specially when i make money from my website.

We have been doing a lot of  reviews of educational  mobile apps. We particularly focused on the ones that work on iPad and we tried to cover almost all the fields from digital story telling to apps to teach creativity. Our purpose is to provide teachers with a repository of apps to choose from  when trying them with their students in the classroom. Check out the categories below and click on any title to access the correspondent apps it contains. Enjoy

The advent of e-readers has allowed people to carry a lifetime of books in their backpack for convenient, backlit reading anywhere. This proliferation of reading gadgets has not only been a boon for passionate readers, but for writers as well. It is easier and less expensive than ever for independent authors to publish their works to a possible audience of millions. This is a huge benefit to both writers and readers, and has led to an outpouring of independently published e-books for lovers of all genres. This list is a celebration of reading and writing for both academic and general audiences.

Professor Leaves a MOOC in Mid-Course in Dispute Over Teaching - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Professor Leaves a MOOC in Mid-Course in Dispute Over Teaching - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Instructor characteristics for online teaching | Scoop.it

Students regularly drop out of massive open online courses before they come to term. For a professor to drop out is less common.

 

The professor apparently had faced criticism from students who objected to his decision to assign a textbook that was not available free. Mr. McKenzie also had heard complaints about how much work he assigned.

 

“I will not give on standards,” wrote Mr. McKenzie in one post, “and you also should not want me to, or else the value of any ‘certification’ won’t be worth the digits it is written with.”

How to Foster Grit, Tenacity and Perseverance: An Educator’s Guide | MindShift | Instructor characteristics for online teaching | Scoop.it

How can we best prepare children and adolescents to thrive in the 21st century? This question is at the heart of what every educator attempts to do on a daily basis. Apartfrom imparting content of knowledge and facts, however, it’s becoming clear that the “noncognitive competencies” known as grit, perseverance, and tenacity are just as important, if not more so, in preparing kids to be self-sufficient and successful.

To that end, the Department of Education’s Office of Technology has released a report called Promoting Grit, Tenacity, and Perseverance
