Maximize Evernote with 5 Powerful Features | Learning  and Libraries | Scoop.it

Helll-ooo! Watching Videos Does Not Necessarily Lead to Learning -- THE Journal

Helll-ooo! Watching Videos Does Not Necessarily Lead to Learning -- THE Journal | Learning  and Libraries | Scoop.it
Watching videos is fast becoming a canonized instructional method in K-12. But a young researcher from Australia has some provocative, scientifically based research that ought to give video proponents significant pause. But, all is not lost, as we report in this week’s post.

Via Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa)
Sue Osborne's insight:

I found this article particularly interesting as the researcher is from Australia. Just shows, just because they can watch something entertaining on a subject, it does not follow that they will learn ANYTHING about it. I also found it amusing that the students felt that the second more straight forward video was more "confusing" and needed more effort to watch - and it was the one they learned more from! So...using one's brain helps you learn stuff! Who knew? (insert sarcastic grimace here)

Becoming Open Education Leaders Webinar #edtech #OER #openaccess #highered #education #elearning #acrl | Learning  and Libraries | Scoop.it

Join the Blended Librarians Online Learning Community on Thursday, May 28 at 3:00 pm EDT for a free webcast presentation and discussion with Quill West, an open education advocate, librarian, and educator from Washington State. Currently Quill is the Open Education Project Manager at Pierce College. In her webcast, West will speak to the importance of academic librarians fostering an institutional culture that embraces open education as their institutions recognize that textbook costs create a significant barrier to students’ access to education. Librarians in Washington State are taking a leadership role in college-wide efforts to adopt alternatives to textbooks by engaging in a Library Services Technology Act (LSTA) Grant administered by the Washington State Library/Office of the Secretary of State. In the effort to be open education leader, West and colleagues have created a course for librarians on how to serve open education needs. The webcast will address the open education skills that librarians are developing in order to better serve the open education needs of our institutions.
