You need a manual of Thinglink. Look at http://ict-idee.blogspot.nl/2012/10/130-maak-interactieve-illustraties-met.html#more (Manual in Dutch. Translate-button on site).
Paula Jamieson's curator insight, August 5, 1:42 PM

I see huge value in the Thinglink tool (both App and Web), especially if you are a Google school and create or store digital archives online (as all you need is a URL to link too). 

 

Our Year 4 to 6 teachers have created a Thinglink (placed on their clasblog) using their class photo and linked each one of the students blogs to it - simple, effective and visually capturing (Whanau love being able to view their blogs easily).

“Kids are saying they want to learn more about technology and science, but they also want to experience it creatively and use it personally,”


Some of our team traveled to ISTE this weekend. We loved listening to innovative and creative speeches like this.

Using headphones to take photos with iPad or iPhone - Dave Foord's Weblog

Using headphones to take photos with iPad or iPhone - Dave Foord's Weblog | Learning Molecules | Scoop.it

"I recently learnt a little known iPad/iPhone trick – that is really useful, especially for people using an iPad in a teaching and learning situation.

If you have a newish headphone set that has a volume control on the headphones – then this can be used to take a photo or video on the iPad. Pressing the volume down button on the headphones – will have the same effect as pressing the button on the screen when in the default camera app."

As I move in to a role where I will be working with other colleagues on a more formal basis when it comes to e-learning, I have been reflecting upon different Apps.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, August 10, 6:51 PM

Some real gems in this list that can change the way you teach for the better. These apps include ones to support flipped instructions, that help students choose a path through the content, that help organise and sort out daily tasks, and that allow publishing to a global audience. A fantastic list.

Time to retire from online learning?

Time to retire from online learning? | Learning Molecules | Scoop.it

And then there’s MOOCs. I can’t express adequately just how pissed off I am about MOOCs – not the concept, but all the hubris and nonsense that’s been talked and written about them. At a personal level, it was as if 45 years of work was for nothing. All the research and study I and many others had done on what makes for successful learning online were totally ignored, with truly disastrous consequences in terms of effective learning for the vast majority of participants who took MOOCs from the Ivy League universities. Having ignored online learning for nearly 20 years, Stanford, MIT and Harvard had to re-invent online learning in their own image to maintain their perceived superiority in all things higher educational.

This paragraph exactly reflects my thoughts about MOOCs. Glad to hear it coming from a leader in the online and distance learning field as this type of voice has been swamped by the unquestioning embracing of MOOCs by all and sundry!

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's curator insight, April 22, 4:17 AM

Lastly, I am concerned that the computer scientists seem to be taking over online education. Ivy League MOOCs are being driven mainly by computer scientists, not educators. Politicians are looking to computer science to automate learning in order to save money. Computer scientists have much to offer, but they need more humility and a greater willingness to work with other professionals, such as psychologists and teachers, who understand better how learning operates. This is a battle that has always existed in educational technology, but it’s one I fear the educators are losing. The result could be disastrous, but that’s a theme for a whole set of blog posts.

MOOC completion and course activities - Center for Instructional Technology | Learning Molecules | Scoop.it

There has been a lot of discussion about MOOC completion, most of which has focused on completion rates: what percent of people complete a MOOC, and how should we calculate that number?  However, what has drawn less attention, but is potentially more interesting, is what in-course activities impact completion.  Understanding whether or not different course elements in a MOOC affect completion can potentially help us better understand best practices in MOOC design.
