Engaging students with learning technologies

Engaging students with learning technologies | Integrated Learner Support | Scoop.it

Curtin University initiated its eScholar program in 2009 making funds available for academic staff to implement innovative teaching using Curtin’s extensive suite of learning technologies. The program is based on the philosophy of engaging students with learning technologies that support their growing understanding through authentic and assessable activities.This publication presents the research findings of each of the eScholar projects conducted in 2010 and 2011. Each chapter has undergone a process of double-blind review resulting in high quality descriptions of learning using current and emerging technologies. The publication is divided into 6 sections based on these technologies.University teaching and learning is faced with many challenges. A major one is recognising appropriate learning technologies and their use that support ways in which adults learn. Rapid advances in technologies can easily seduce those with limited understanding of adult learning. This publication offers clear directions founded on teacher and learner experiences grounded in real classroom activity.

The life of a library book

The life of a library book | Integrated Learner Support | Scoop.it

I work at a public library and was recently telling a friend about the cycles that the books go through and she was fascinated so I decided to share.

Stephen Downes' remarks to David Wileys "OER Quality Standards"

Stephen Downes' remarks to David Wileys "OER Quality Standards" | Integrated Learner Support | Scoop.it

If we agree that the only measure of quality of an open educational resource (OER) is "Degree to which the OER facilitates student learning" the David Wiley's table makes sense. Otherwise, we might want to reconsider. For example, an OER might facilitate learning - but of information that is known to be false (or worse: propaganda).

MoocDonalds: Are MOOCs Fast Food?

MoocDonalds: Are MOOCs Fast Food? | Integrated Learner Support | Scoop.it

In our eating, we don’t choose one path or the other. Those of us who can afford to, combine meals at home with dining and take out. We base our decisions on many factors that change on a daily if not hourly basis. Education, I predict, will be more like that. Transcripts will be replaced by collections of badges that learners acquire, and they will get those badges from a variety of sources – learning some things in MOOCs and some in face-to face sessions designed to develop skills and refine performance into the nuanced expertise required for success in most fields. We won’t be buying “meal plans” or signing a contract with an “all you can eat” buffet. We’ll be recognizing an educational need and finding and engaging in options that make sense, personally.
