#MOOC for Teachers: Coursera Offers Online Teacher Training Program | MindShift | Learning technologies | Scoop.it

Berry supports the idea of MOOCs for professional development in theory because he’d like to see teachers be able to choose and direct their own learning. But he thinks success hinges on skilled virtual facilitators who both know the subject matter and how to foster high quality discussion and communication online in order to make it work well.

Lively, passionate, (bordering on) seductive teachers and facilitators, leads to exciting and meaningful interaction online and off. When MOOCs are conceived and designed this way, they will become the places for highly-engaged social learning that we want them to be.

Robin Kay's curator insight, May 8, 2013 9:23 AM

Interesting move - I would watch this one closely.  MOOCs seem better than large lecturs and in Coursera are much better designed.  Not sure I would want to be taught by a teachers whose only credentials were from Coursera, but I can see other higher education areas being better served by MOOCs.

6 Learning Technologies Teachers Should Break Down And Embrace - TeachThought

6 Learning Technologies Teachers Should Break Down And Embrace - TeachThought | Learning technologies | Scoop.it

"Teachers in today’s world have finally begun to embrace technology.

This makes sense seeing as we live in a world where the ability to work with technology is key in virtually any profession. Making sure students are equipped for today’s world is a huge part of the job.

 

In fact, teachers that don’t do so are in many ways doing their students a disservice. And while most teachers now use technology pretty heavily in their classrooms, there are constantly new technologies that you can implement in creative ways.

 

There are a few, though, that have never really caught on the way they might have. Here are six great examples – each potentially powerful learning technologies for you and your classroom."

Prezi, Google Drive and the Khan Academy are all definately worth looking at and using.

Extending the Boundaries of Learning: A Challenge for IT in Higher Education | Campus Technology

Extending the Boundaries of Learning: A Challenge for IT in Higher Education | Campus Technology | Learning technologies | Scoop.it

"In just one generation there has been the most radical transformation of access to learning ever in human history," Lev Gonick points out. On July 30, 2013, Gonick will open Campus Technology's 20th annual summer conference with a keynote that, appropriately, draws on his experience over the past two decades as a leader in higher education IT, most recently as VP for IT and CIO at Case Western Reserve University and co-founder of the Cleveland-based broadband nonprofit OneCommunity. Gonick will provide a retrospective of key technology changes and describe the "infancy" of the information technology revolution in higher education, but more importantly, he will examine the future challenges waiting for our education institutions and the higher education IT community.

 

While Gonick's discussion of the beginnings of the information technology revolution and its future directions is relevant to all types of institutions within the higher education community, there is a particularly interesting message for community colleges. Access to education for all has always been a prime mandate for community colleges. But this revolution will ultimately deliver, says Gonick, on promises far beyond access to education: With the guidance of information technology leaders, higher education institutions will experience transformations that extend the boundaries of learning and find traditional models of instruction and credentialing overturned--in fact, Gonick suggests, the information technology revolution in higher education will see our institutions redefining learning for the coming generation.

 

CT chatted with Lev Gonick recently and explored a few of the themes of his opening keynote.

MOOCs, a short history | Learning technologies | Scoop.it

"When The New York Times dubbed 2012 “The Year of the MOOC,” it was pretty much on, give or take a year. As the visualisation below shows, 2012 was big, but 2013 is even bigger if you look at it from the number of partnering institutions. At the end of 2012, 100 universities and colleges had partnered with MOOC systems. This is big, but compare this to the end of July 2013, and 4x that number (432 HigherEd institutions) have registered to offer courses."

Don't Miss These Two Fabulous Graphics on BYOD for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Learning technologies | Scoop.it

"Just a little reminder. BYOD in education refers to students bringing their own technology devices ( smartphones, tablets, and laptops. ) to school for educational uses. This was initially started by college students, but it soon spread to K-12 education. Schools that used to depend on government funds to provide technology that students would need for the school day , are now turning that responsibility to the parents by asking them to purchase the technology devices needed for schools, which, fortunately enough, most students actually own. This would cut down on schools' huge yearly technology expenditure.

Keynote Address: Sebastian Thrun Demoncratizing Higher Education | Learning technologies | Scoop.it

Online higher education has a long history, but seems to be always good for surprises. In 2011, the speaker took his Stanford graduate level class online, and 160,000 students signed up. 23,000 graduated at Stanford level. Underlying this class was a teaching model that emphasizes student engagement, problem solving, and free online access. The speaker recently created Udacity, a new online university, which offers university-level courses free of charge. With half a dozen courses underway, Udacity has enrolled north of 200,000 students. The speaker will discuss details of this approach, the underlying pedagogical ideas, the ramification this work may have for the students in the world.

Paul Rudd's insight:

If you have not had a look at Udacity yet you really should - the courses are truely amazing and the way they combine instructional videos together with problem solving quizes really help keep you engaged.

This is a link is designed to help teacher assist their students to develop strong online research skills. As teachers in this technology era, it is important to teach our student critical thinking. There is just so much false information on the web, which students need to be able to independently assess the credibility of the information they are reading. This article demonstrates how to encourage 'smart searching' and encourages you to be critical of your resources credibility.
