I hope that I will revisit this site in the future. I quickly looked over one of the featured lessons (Barbie Bungee Jump), which essentially was a data-collection and data analysis activity. Within this unit, many (close to ten) different ways (resources) were provided. Even if these ready-made lessons aren't used, the examples provided are a great way to learn technology integration strategies.

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought | Interesting tools for teaching and learning | Scoop.it
Grouping students is easy; creating effective student groups is less so.

The following infographic from Mia MacMeekin seeks to provide some ideas to help make group work easier in your classroom. The strength of this particular graphic is in the range of the ideas. The first tip refers teachers to Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal development, which frames student ability in terms of a range: what they can do unassisted, what they can do with the support of a More Knowledgeable Other (MKO), and what they cannot do even with support. This is different for each student, and understanding these ranges for students can help inform grouping decisions, whether you’re using a peer instruction model, ability grouping, or another approach.

The 10 Most Popular Teacher Tools Being Used This Year - Edudemic

The 10 Most Popular Teacher Tools Being Used This Year - Edudemic | Interesting tools for teaching and learning | Scoop.it
The school year is upon us. It’s quite literally the time for teachers, students, parents, school administrators, and everyone else to begin spending the vast majority of their day at a school. Whether it’s college, high school, middle school, or elementary levels, it’s school time. That means teachers need to be up to speed and ready to rock the classroom. In order to do that, we thought it’d be useful to know about the most popular teacher tools that we’re hearing about. We’ve assembled a list of the basic and popular tools that we’ve seen used in modern classrooms around the world. They may not be the most cutting-edge but, instead, you can rest assured that they’re tried and tested.

'In the infographic, Blended and Online Assessment Taxonomy, we have organized types of activities that suit various levels of assessments (2001) starting with remember, understand, and apply in the first row. The second row of our infographic includes higher levels of active learning including analyze, evaluate, and create. Engaging curriculum whether face-to-face, blended, or online push student performances to these levels of learning; however, these assessments are less conducive to automated feedback systems as rubrics typically require intelligent judgment. The appropriate level of learning for any assessment should be determined by the learning objective(s).' - This is worthy of your time and reflection.

Rasma's curator insight, June 5, 2014 5:06 AM

These three are equally used by professionals on a daily basis? Need to check those sources. This "quick" chart is indeed quick - but is it so comprehensible?

 

Pritchard's "Effective Online Learning" (2007) is a good source for clearly explaining learning theory and relating it to online instruction.

 

My research this year has shown nill online-only course design that achieves anything close to constructivism. The hybrid courses with part face-to-face and part online are the best models for motivating students.

 

However, no study showed learning was improved, in fact the opposite: learning was the same for the hybrid and face-to-face groups... yet the student self-assessment for the hybrid group was higher. In other words, the students who had some online component in their course had a higher perception of their abilities than did the classroom only students. But the actual abilities were the same for both groups.

 

Constructivism - needed for any subject in which independent critical thinking is the goal - is the hardest to achieve online. Only simulated classrooms where dialog and discovery, made through ongoing attempts and feedback is possible, come close to it.

 

In other words, beware MOOCS as a course design to be emulated.

There's always something new to learn for all of us and these tools can make this easier for teachers and students alike. Flipping the classroom is not new anymore so it could be time for the students to start generating the content and learning for the class. These iPad apps can make it easier to empower students to take an active roll in their learning.
