A Vision for Learning and Teaching in a Digital Age


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

My favourite part where it refers to the issue of plagiarism: 

"The enduring response to this issue is to set aside technology as the culprit and to focus on the importance of digital citizenship."

This is the kernel of the problem (and many others) in digital land. If students are educated to be responsible digital citizens from an early age, plagiarism SHOULD be less of a problem.

Students of 1251EDN, are you interested in changing/enhancing your view of teaching and learning in this digital age? Think about the systemic support that already exists for teachers to utilise many of the digital age facets.

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.

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)
