digital digs: Welcome to Badge World | Learn Rinse Repeat | Scoop.it

Perhaps one might find the notion of open badges appealing. Open meaning what? Anyone can open their own diploma mill, err I mean badge-selling operation? Of course not. Badges would have to be accredited by someone. Not sure who, but I doubt getting that accreditation will be free. How could it be? What open means is market-driven. Badges will have monetary value. People want them as a route toward getting jobs. They will pay for them the same way they pay now for college credits. When we look at all the free, DIY learning that is out there now, it's free precisely because it hasn't been commodified.

Valary Oleinik's insight:

Gamification and badging may be all the rage these days but it is useful to looking at the "dark" side of badging. Why are we really doing it. What will it really accomplish. I think it is new and novel right now and maybe hasn't really found its way, but it is trying to solve some issues that we need a solution for. How do we record our accomplishments past higher education? We list memberships and awards on resumes but don't always have a way to show that we have the skills and motivation to move our careers and lives in new directions.

Technology can transform education, but not without people

Technology can transform education, but not without people | Learn Rinse Repeat | Scoop.it
Five years ago I was trying every new tech tool to come out. I was glogging with glogster. I was threading with voice thread. And I sure was writing and editing in real-time with Google Docs! But the technology was not transforming me. It was not transforming my classroom, because it was just technology.

5 Success Principles that will Never Die | Learn Rinse Repeat | Scoop.it
Success comes in many shapes and sizes. And it can come at you from many
different directions. If you are not looking for it, success can pass you
by -- several times. You must be on the lookout for success’ cousin,
opportunity; it is the gateway to success. Often times, opportunity and
success will be disguised so cleverly you will actually be tricked into
thinking it is a problem. WARNING: Although it may seem like a million
miles away, success is closer than you think.

Valary Oleinik's insight:

I often suggest that people develop a 30 minute (or whatever length they want) long plan as part of their personal learning environment. They are worried at first about being overwhelmed by the waves of information from social media but I assure them that the water will still be there and they can just dip their toes in as they see fit to help stay current of their area of interest or influence.

Koka Sexton posted this on Twitter, and connected me with Kevan Lee's article here. Kevan also wrote the other great article for Buffer that I posted yesterday, so this guy obviously has some great ideas on how to convey how the process of blogging and social media can be done. I recommend reading this article because there are some good ideas, and it shows that you don't have to spend an eternity on social media to make it good. Kevan has some great tips here.

Three Critical Conversations Started and Sustained by Flipped Learning

Three Critical Conversations Started and Sustained by Flipped Learning | Learn Rinse Repeat | Scoop.it
The flipped learning model of instruction has begun to make the transition from an educational buzzword to a normative practice among many university instructors, and with good reason. Flipped learning provides many benefits for both faculty and students. However, instructors who use flipped learning soon find out that a significant amount of work is sometimes necessary to win students over to this way of conducting class. Even when the benefits of flipped learning are made clear to students, so

How To Build A Successful Blog While You Have A Full Time Job | Learn Rinse Repeat | Scoop.it
Most people who start a blog dream about making it a full time job, with full time income- but worry that they won't be able to build a successful blog while juggling a 40+ hour a week position.  Can you do both? Should you do both?  Most successful bloggers had to start their labor of love while still holding down a job and in fact, I highly recommend that you start building your blog as a serious side hustle before it becomes a full time gig.

Still, I do believe this is possible. I'd like to think that TechCommGeekmom is a successful blog, and I've made it work so far.

Models For Designing Your Personal Learning Environment

Models For Designing Your Personal Learning Environment | Learn Rinse Repeat | Scoop.it

A personal learning environment (PLE) is a solution for keeping up with the rapid pace of knowledge change. Some say it is a concept, while others say it is a technology.

I think a good definition is this: a self-directed and evolving environment of tools, services and resources organized by a person seeking a way to accomplish lifetime learning, to create, and to connect with others of similar interests.

Because it is personalized, everyone’s PLE will be unique. Because it is collaborative, information may be continually created and shared. In the workplace, designing a personal learning environment has the potential to partially replace conventional courses.
