A Step by Step Guide to Help Teachers Create Facebook Pages for Their Classes ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Step by Step Guide to Help Teachers Create Facebook Pages for Their Classes ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Leading Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Creating a digital presence for your class does not have to be restricted to only standard  platforms such as websites, blogs and wikis;  social media platforms do offer some handy alternatives especially when it comes to teaching adult students. For instance, you can easily create a Google Plus community for your class and invite your students to join in. There is also Google’s new web tool Spaces that you can use with your students to share, discuss and comment on different topics (a guide on how to use Spaces is on the making and we will share it with you as soon as it is ready). However, in today’s post we are  introducing you to Facebook Pages. This is a feature in Facebook that allows you to create a virtual space for any sort of purpose you want.

In an ongoing effort towards polishing the edges, over the years we have continued to refine the processes we apply to the Personal Passion Project. We have gained insights into the sorts of projects that work well and which will cause difficulties. We have added a degree of structure while maintaining the required degree of freedom necessary for a personalised project.

The results of this learning are presented (in the model above and the text) below.

Created by Benjamin Bloom in 1956, he created a method to differentiate questions in the education system. Here you will find an enriched list of blog posts, apps, tools, videos and strategies to help educators become more proficient with the system.

10 Dos and Don'ts For Group Work & Student Grouping - TeachThought

10 Dos and Don'ts For Group Work & Student Grouping - TeachThought | Leading Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Educators have learned much about the benefits of using projects for learning, and collaboration is easily recognized as an important skill for students to build. There are very few arguments against having students work together in class and on assignments.

However, the challenge facing many educators is not in wanting their students to work together, but in figuring out how to group students together in the most effective ways. We do not want to create groups that hinder the progress of any of our students!

This simple guide can help you the next time you are creating groups for an assignment or task in your classroom!

8 ways teachers can talk less and get kids talking more | The Cornerstone

8 ways teachers can talk less and get kids talking more | The Cornerstone | Leading Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
On Twitter, I recently shared an excellent article by Justin Tarte called 5 Questions Every Teacher Should Ask Him/Herself. The first reflection question Justin recommends is:

Who is doing a majority of the talking in your classroom? It’s the person who is doing the majority of the talking that tends to do the most learning, so what is the teacher/student talking ratio in your classroom? If you find yourself always talking more than your students, try and figure out some ways to empower your students so they are more involved in the learning.

A Visual Primer On Learning Theory - TeachThought

A Visual Primer On Learning Theory - TeachThought | Leading Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"Theories on how people learn are not new. Piaget, Bruner, Vygotsky, Skinner and others have theorized for years how it is we come to “know” things.

 

Unlike many theories involving physics for example, it is unlikely that a single learning theory is “right,” and will ultimately prove other theories “wrong.” How people learn is complex, and any unifying theory on how it all happens that’s entirely accurate would likely be too vague to be helpful. In that way, each “theory” is more of a way to describe one truth out of many."

Whether you’re teaching in a classroom, developing some e-learning or producing a video, you’ll be concerned about engaging your learners. Why? Because, if learners aren’t engaged they’ll pay little attention to what you’re offering and they’re very unlikely to retain anything. You can spend a fortune trying to engage learners, but the secrets to engagement do not demand you break the bank. Here are four dos and four don’ts:

Every Teacher’s Guide to Assessment | Edudemic

Every Teacher’s Guide to Assessment | Edudemic | Leading Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
It’s not a stretch to say that assessment is a hot button issue in education; however, you’d be hard pressed to find an educator who doesn’t see the value in measuring student progress. Assessments themselves have been vilified, when, in fact, it’s why assessments are given and how the data is used that is really the issue. The Glossary of Education Reform gives this great overview of what high-stakes testing is and how it impacts students, teachers, and schools. Basically, high-stakes testing has consequences for the test-takers and givers—sometimes in the form of a high school diploma, grade advancement, and even teachers’ salaries. But not all assessment is high-stakes, and when done thoughtfully, the right assessment can provide extremely useful information for all stakeholders—students, teachers, parents, schools, and policy-makers

Let’s take a look at what assessment is, why it’s important, and how it can be delivered in the classroom in a useful manner. Then we’ll dive into some resources available for each type of assessment—diagnostic, formative, and summative.
