How NOT to Design a MOOC: The Disaster at Coursera and How to Fix it | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

I don’t usually like to title a post with negative connotations, but there is no way to put a positive spin on my experience with the MOOC I’m enrolled in through Coursera, Fundamentals of Online Education: Planning and Application.The course so far is a disaster, ‘a mess’ as numerous students have called it. Ironically, the learning outcome of the course is to create our own online course. To be fair, there are some good points to the course, but there are significant factors contributing to a frustrating course experience for students, myself included.

Personalize Learning: 10 Predictions for Personalized Learning for 2013

Personalize Learning: 10 Predictions for Personalized Learning for 2013 | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Teachers and learners of all ages are connecting more than ever. In 2013, we will see teachers expanding their Personal Learning Networks (PLN) using social media. They will be telling more stories and sharing their journeys as they personalize learning. Learners will be using mobile devices for learning in and out of school. We will be seeing learners involved in more global collaborative projects in 2013.

John McDermott Neill's curator insight, February 6, 2013 11:26 PM

The future outlined here would seem to be achievable but can students really be trusted to "own" their learning?

Arlene Salyards's curator insight, February 14, 2013 5:26 PM

I like this statement "It is time to bring back inquiry and encourage questions that have no right answers."

EDUCTO's curator insight, August 6, 2013 7:59 PM

We're halfway through the year, how well did we do on these predictions so far?

1) Won’t revamp higher education as we know it. “I just don’t think that’s in the cards, Struck says.

Information overload, information crap,information pollution...are some of the words that are being used now to describe the tsunami of irrelevant information we are bombarded with day and night.In  December 2009, Google began customizing its search results for all users, and we entered a new era of personalization. With little notice or fanfare, our online experience is changing, as the websites we visit are increasingly tailoring themselves to us.Everywhere you turn you find information that seems relevant to you but in fact is nothing but crap. This is probably why Eli Pariser recommended what he calledInformation Bubble.

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Curation is a valuable skill for today’s learner. In a culture of content overload, members that provide great content to their audience will be recognized leaders in network communities. Optimally, we equip students to differentiate good content from bad in preparation for their further education and careers. Curating an online topic (and allowing comments) also increases self-awareness and provides additional insight from others. The nuances of sharing content and writing to an audience become much better understood through interactivity between the curator and participating audience.

I completely agree with this post. I fully integrated it into one of my courses last year. Students had to choose a potential future career and create a scoop.it page to help them learn about that field. Most feedback was positive. A few students still use it seven months after the grades have been turned in!

What if your education was personalized like your Netflix queue? What if the lessons offered in the classroom were individually created and refined on a minute-by-minute basis so they have the maximum amount of usefulness?

While teachers offer personalized learning every single day, technology has often lagged behind. Too often do we see a classroom of devices used the exact same way. It would go something like this:

“okay class, let’s all turn on our iPads and open the Evernote app. Now everyone tap here. Now let’s all tap here…”
