Esistono delle applicazioni veramente notevoli. Avrebbero una ricaduta importante nella didattica così come nel lavoro di tutti i giorni.

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, March 28, 6:39 AM

If you've ever thought of getting into using Evernote, but weren't sure where to start, this would be a good place. Teachers can use Evernote to organise all sorts and share with students. It's a great tool, I'd recommend giving it a go.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 14, 8:42 PM

Verso is a new tool that come to us from teachers in Australia. It provides teachers the ability to create a 'challenge' and provide a prompt, which may be a video, document, website, etc. Add some thought provoking questions and students may answer within Verso. Students must post their own answer before they can respond to others, and all answers are anonymous.

Verso provides a number of resources to help you get started, including:

* Getting Started - This section "shows you how to Verso in 90 seconds", providing a number of examples (and you may choose one to try with your students).

* Strategies to Support Deeper Thinking - This section is very robust, and it is worth the time to check it out. They provide nine strategies to support deeper thinking, including:

     - Ask for more than one type of response from your student

     - Be explicit about how you want your students to respond, model an answer in your instruction

     - Be provocative to promote debate amongst your students

     - Let your students answer the questions. This section has an excellent resource "Asking Googleable vs NonGoogleable Questions"

*Verso Strategies: Building Deeper Collaboration Using Google Drive

* How To - Discover a range of videos and examples to help you get started

* Example Provocations - Find a wide variety of examples that you may choose to use.

They also have a blog that provides additional resources.

Their website uses three key words: Challenge, Engage, Learn. This website will allow your students to be challenged, engaged and learn and is worth taking some time to explore.

How To Kill Learner Curiosity In 12 Easy Steps

How To Kill Learner Curiosity In 12 Easy Steps | Knowledge Engineering | Scoop.it

"Killing a learner’s natural curiosity doesn’t happen overnight. It can take as long as 12 years, and in some rare cases even that isn’t long enough.

Learning environments focused on standards, assessment, and compliance allow for the implementation of research-based strategies in pursuit of streams of data to prove that learning is happening. Curiosity is nice, but it’s a monumental challenge to measure."

As we work with our students are we "killing a learner's natural curiosity" based on what happens in our classroom? This post looks at 12 ways we may be "killing curiosity" in our classrooms, often based on what we are being told to do with our students.
Each of these ideas in explored more fully in the text that follows the image that lists the 12 ways.

As you read through this think about what you might shift, to allow your students to be more curious.

After a brief introduction (which includes an excellent interactive infographic, 13 Reasons Why Your Brain Craves Infographics). Following this introduction there are six components that are shared:

* Select an Infographic-Friendly Topic

* Begin the Drafting Process by Hand

* Choose the Right Templates or Software

* Refine Content and Design

Virtually unlimited classrooms: Pedagogical practices in massive open online courses


Via Ana Cristina Pratas
niftyjock's insight:

interesting look at moocs and pedagogy

more...
Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, November 25, 11:35 PM

Abstract:


Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have become a prominent feature of the higher education discourse in recent years. Yet, little is known about the effectiveness of these online courses in engaging participants in the learning process. This study explores the range of pedagogical tools used in 24 MOOCs, including the epistemological and social dimensions of instruction, to consider the extent to which these courses provide students with high-quality, collaborative learning experiences. Findings suggest that the range of pedagogical practices currently used in MOOCs tends toward an objectivist-individual approach, with some efforts to incorporate more constructivist and group-oriented approaches. By examining MOOCs through the lens of engaged teaching and learning, this study raises concerns about the degree to which MOOCs are actually revolutionizing higher education by using technology to improve quality, and challenges educators to strive for more creative and empowering forms of open online learning.

Today, social media is enabling everybody to increase the visibility of their views on topics they care about. This can foster dialogue, but does not automatically turn anyone into a subject matter expert or even a thought leader as such. Still, if you are, you will get found and your reach and impact will increase, thanks to the connected globa nature of social media.

This graphic provides a good categorization of different degrees of influence  you may acquire thanks to your use of social media. Where would you place yourself on it? Where do you want to be?
