Jay Cross: informal learning guru

Jay Cross: informal learning guru | iPads in the Inclusive Classroom | Scoop.it

Cross is often ahead of his time and with one simple, diagram, he opened our eyes up to the fact that most learning is informal yet almost all the spend is on formal courses.

He invites us to think about learning in a more naturalistic way, seeing learners as real people in real organisations who use real tools in real networks, both offline and online. Informal learning is driven by conversations, communities of practice, context, reinforcement through practice and now social media to “optimise organisational performance”. Blogs, wikis, podcasts, peer-to-peer sharing, aggregators, social media and personal knowledge management are all emergent phenomena, unlike the top-down tools and content that traditional e-learning has provided.

Writing with Images in the Digital Age

Writing with Images in the Digital Age | iPads in the Inclusive Classroom | Scoop.it

As text and image converge and blend, complement or replace one another, and become something new, our ways of reading and writing and studying have become transformed as well. If we want to help our students become effective communicators, that is, effective users and producers of image-texts, we need to understand these media from the inside out and become better users and producers ourselves.

At it's most basic level, digital tools can be used to help students find, understand and use information. When combined with student-driven learning experiences fueled by Essential Questions offering flexible learning paths, it can be the ticket to success. Here is a closer look at three components of effectively using technology as a tool for digital differentiation.

Most information that's available, we don't know how it’s assembled and whether it’s accurate. So if you don't know how to probe the sources and say on what basis they made the assertions, you can be fooled into thinking you’re educated when you’re really not.

How Technology Can Change Assessment

How Technology Can Change Assessment | iPads in the Inclusive Classroom | Scoop.it

Many discussions of technology-based assessments concentrate on automating current methods of testing to save time and cost. However, technology also changes what educators can assess, how and when to assess it, and for what purpose. Assessments can be embedded in ICTs, and have the potential to measure learning processes, in addition to end-of-lesson knowledge.

Testing is said to be one of the most important elements in learning and teaching. Exams and tests should not be used as the only way of testing different learners.

More Tips on Infusing UDL into Your Teaching - Multimedia | iPads in the Inclusive Classroom | Scoop.it

A UVM blog from the Center of Teaching and Learning.

 

"This post focuses on one of the three core principles in UDL: multiple means of representation.

 

This means moving beyond textual representation by presenting information and conceptual knowledge to students in a variety of formats, e.g., images, video, and audio. Not only does research indicate that this practice can enhance student understanding and retention of course content, it can also be used to engage students and prime discussion. Students responding to an image, song or movie clip can spark reflection and debate."

Project-Based Learning Research Review | iPads in the Inclusive Classroom | Scoop.it

Teachers can create real-world problem-solving situations by designing questions and tasks that correspond to two different frameworks of inquiry-based teaching: Problem-based learning, which tackles a problem but doesn't necessarily include a student project, and project-based learning, which involves a complex task and some form of student presentation, and/or creating an actual product or artifact.

Assistive Technology and the 1:1 Student | iPads in the Inclusive Classroom | Scoop.it

Meaghan recalls her first moments with the iPad and how she and her liaison discovered the variety of new opportunities that this one device presented. One of the first things she used was the ability to invert the colors of the screen. The iPad gives users the opportunity to read predominantly black text on a lighter screen, or to invert the colors and overlay white text on a black screen. This one feature, Meaghan recalls, was "transformative" in her learning of what the iPad could offer her educational experience.

The biggest and most oft-heard criticism of the iPad usually revolves around it not behaving like a desktop PC or laptop. The people making this complaint are simply missing the point. Apple aren’t trying to make a laptop replacement, why would they? They make a couple of extremely good ones! The iPad is a new kind of device that asks you to think and work differently.

Here, the game looks at how the student did on past levels, and selects the next challenge so that it will maximize both learning and engagement. The goal is to dynamically create a personalized progression for every student."...

A través de un portal los profesores pueden observar los progresos.Una buena propuesta si consiguen que los niños se interesen así por las matemáticas.
