Blended Learning: 10 Trends

Blended Learning: 10 Trends | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

There is mounting evidence that complementing or replacing lectures with student-centric, technology-enabled active learning strategies and learning guidance—rather than memorization and repetition—improves learning, supports knowledge retention, and raises achievement. These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards.

by Med Kharbach

 

"Learning is all about asking questions and finding answers to them. An inquisitive mind is one that goes beyond the status quo and probes deep below surface meanings. To foster such kind of  thinking inside our classroom requires some hard work and a serious investment in time and efforts. We, as teachers and educators, need to prepare the right environment where inquisitive minds can nourish and grow. We need to water this environment with a culture of asking questions."

Una buena infografía que resume estudios con resultados del efecto de los videojuegos en el aprendizaje de la educacion superior, cosa que no habia visto mucho.  Además, el inicio es bastante claro, hacer un videojuego "serio" o educativo es doble reto: lograr los objetivos de aprendizaje propuestos y diseñar un gameplay igualmente divertido, motivador, estimulante... es la diferencia entre un videojuego educativo de un juego didactico.

Taryn Coxall's curator insight, October 8, 2013 7:24 PM

This article gives great insight into the upcoming phenominon of "Game Based Learning".Although i have never seen it in my practises, after reading abit about it, i believe game based learning is something i would incoperate into my own classroom. Game Based learning provides a stimulating and engaging way of learning for children on a wide range of educational areas and topics. It is proven through this approach to learning students aremore likely to become motivated to learn, become increasingly engage and excel in their learning. 
Although many peoleay belive an "old school" approach to teaching is best, i feel it is highly necassary to kepp up with the fast moving pace of technology on offer, and use theseresources to help student in the classroom. Most learners that i have come aross are kinaesthetic learning, being one myself i can see how these games will help a variety of different learners and create opportunity for divergent thinking.

great resource which has iven me great insight.

Infographic: The Literal Meaning Of Every State Name In The U.S. | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

The New Navel of the Moon. It’s so poetic, isn’t it? (And sure, maybe a bit anatomically confusing.) That’s the real meaning behind the state name New Mexico, and it’s one of many etymological gems uncovered by cartographers Stephan Hormes and Silke Peust while they were creating this U.S. map depicting the original, literal meanings behind the states and cities we know today.


“The inspiration was my interest in etymology and my profession as a cartographer," Hormes tells Co.Design. "I started to exchange real names for rue names and the world became a strange romantic continent. It’s obvious to me that after five years of changing names on maps, I must do it. No map is safe.”

HOW SCOOP IT CHANGED MY SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING STRATEGY BY ACCIDENT

 

As I began this process of building my "brand" .. creating my online image and my professional presentation, I had a lot to figure out.  I created my first website, facebook and Linked In account.  I made the decision to "market" myself a Lite Feet dancer, if you read my bio it is one of the accomplishments in my life for which I am very proud.  The problem there was no single source of information of LITE FEET DANCE.   My introduction to Scoop It was perfect timing, it gave me an opportunity to create a LITE FEET SCOOP -- I had been dancing since I was 14 and I had come to know all the founders and the main Lite Feet websites, the history of Lite Feet dance,  the multitude of YouTube Channels, websites, facebook pages and Lite Feet Sound Cloud accounts, and I felt a great responsibility to curate and create the first and only LITE FEET SCOOP.  Creating this scoop gave me a link to provide as a reference to my own "LIte Feet Dancer" identity but also was a unique opportunity to curate, what I believe to be, an important, relevent and for the most part unnoticed dance phenom and YouTube Sensation that is  Lite Feet Dance.  My efforts to high lite the incredible talent of these young dancers has been an honor and I will continue to add to scoop as new content becomes available. 

DLite Scoops Lite Feet Dance:

http://www.scoop.it/t/lite-feet-dance ;


 

I then created several other relevent scoops for my story, and I created them in the hopes that sharing my journey would hopefully help others with similar journeys.

Notetaking In The Digital Classroom: A Blended Learning Approach ~ TeachThought

Notetaking In The Digital Classroom: A Blended Learning Approach ~ TeachThought | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

The Cornell Notes strategy is one possible model students can use, in addition to combination notes, REAP strategy, and others. When used in combination with technology, students are able to activate key brain areas during learning, while also retaining critical information for future review.

 

How Noteaking Is Changing

 

"It’d be easy to fall victim to hyperbole here and suggest that notetaking is the stuff of electricity and holograms, but that’s only partly true. Today, 40% of students prefer a mix of physical and digital notes. In the digital classroom then, the primary shift parallels blended learning: a mix of physical and electronic information that serves as a compromise between “old” and “new” learning.

 

"In the digital classroom, recording pens, tablets, laptops, audio software, and social media make recording, reviewing, sharing, and storing these notes different than it was even 10 years ago. The infographic below explores how."

More students are using their mobile technology in the classroom as well.

Karen Barlow's curator insight, April 11, 4:27 AM

Note-taking is a huge thing in education.  Learning a whole heap of systems and theory at work has made me consider and compare alternatives the impact the use of technology has had on taking notes.  As a very kinsethetic learner, taking notes has always played a huge part in learning for me. So is typing the same as writing?  Typing works for me - not only are my notes easier to read at a later date, as I think the words as I type them somehow this connects my fingers to my brain and I seem to absorb and take things on board or transfer the knowledge to my brain [the cognitivits would be happy].  Advancements in technology enable my mind-maps to be included as part of my notes, and I can easily add book-marks etc to make finding a particular point so much easier.  Comments my learning mates or the facilitator make are also easier to incorporate into my own notes - even in a different colour text. Have I learnt more, better or faster? The jury is still out on these questions.  The implications of this as a teacher  is something definitely worth pondering further.
