Dawne Tortorella's curator insight, February 14, 2013 12:21 PM

Interested in success stories regarding Wikis in MOOCs. As a MOOC student, I have not found them to be very robust or helpful, but hopefully that will change as courses evolve.

Vance Stevens's comment, February 15, 2013 9:04 AM
I like this comment on the front page of the mobiMOOC, which addresses how people respond to MOOCs: "Many of the participants who went through a MOOC experience have had a powerful learning experience which in some cases resulted in strong personal or professional projects with impact. On the other hand the drop-out rate in a non-credited MOOC is high and some participants simply do not like the approach of a MOOC for it has specific dynamics. The diversity in appreciations and feelings is not new: the playground felt like a mental warzone to some and a great adventure to others."
Gary Motteram's curator insight, February 23, 2013 2:56 AM

An interesting wiki about MOOCs.

New Version of Blooms Taxonomy for iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

New Version of Blooms Taxonomy for iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

"Blooms Taxonomy is one of our topical themes in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. Over the last couple of years, we have been posting dozens of articles on how teachers can can apply the HOTS ( Higher Order Thinking Skills ) in their teaching. You can check the resources below to learn more.

 

In this post we worked on some iPad apps that go along with each of the skills mentioned in Blooms Taxonomy. We have based our work on the popular Poster Langwiches made before but because she missed hyperlinking the apps we tried to avoid this mistake in the table below. Just click on any app and you will be automatically directed to its homepage where you can download it." from source: http://www.educatorstechnology.com

I probably won't map them to a group of Apps, since I think creating, or evaluating, or anything can be supported by an app, but not exclusively occur within an app.

 

what's the best way of looking at place of technology in learning. some people attempt to map a technology to a pedagogy, some attempt to map apps to toxonomy, are these approaches helpful? useful? simplify to convey the affordance of technology? why?

Angela C. Dowd's comment, February 25, 2013 2:55 PM
I'm new to the idea of using apps in this way. It seems a great way to connect with technology as a first step. I received a comment on another related post by Allan Carrington and I agree with what he said..."it's not about just mapping a pedagogical method or approach to an App or a series of Apps in a sequence. It is about mapping everything back to graduate attributes, values and capabilities"

We live in an information culture. We are accustomed to having information instantly available and accessible, along with feedback and recommendations. We want to know what people think and like (or dislike). We want to know how we compare with "others like me." Just as analytics powers Amazon.com, Netflix, TheRestaurantFinder.com, and Yelp, it can support tools for student empowerment.

A great way to get into using ebooks is to start with some of the free varieties. Ebook readers offer all kinds of accessibility benefits - as well as barriers - and trialling with free books is a good way to experiment with what works for you or your learners.
