As I note (perhaps too often), infotention involves practicing attentional self-training in conjunction with learning appropriate information tools. Dashboards such as Netvibes (RSS) and Hootsuite (social media) can help you coordinate the internal and external components. I use both Evernote and Hootsuite, so was pleased to see this short (under 5 minute) video about how to combine them productively

So I created one for the elearning showcase in Wellington on the 21st February. It was pretty easy and look forward to sharing on twitter and taking and sharing photos during the event. Only draw back is the Americanisation of the date. I like the fact I can have all of my events on the app and can share via social media during them. It's a great tool and really easy to use. Here's the one for the elearning showcase http://my.yapp.us/J9Y49R.

"Technology is what is now being blamed for multitasking overload.   In some situations, that is certainly the case.   In other situations, the issue might be too much work, an inefficient office, or just boredom with the job or school work.  We can change some of those conditions and not others—but we cannot even sort out what is causing our frustration, exhaustion, or sense of failure until we understand what multitasking is.  Once we realize that multitasking itself is the human condition—not an outcome only of too much email or social networking—then we can find practical ways to address the real problem, not the mythical one."

"Technology is what is now being blamed for multitasking overload.   In some situations, that is certainly the case.   In other situations, the issue might be too much work, an inefficient office, or just boredom with the job or school work."

 

Technology is not the sole driver of multitasking. It is a contributor and it probably appears to be accelerated in today's world. Most research indicates multitasking is not positive.

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, August 17, 2013 10:29 AM

Excellent article that I have read more than once,and has certainly challenged me to think about so many themes:  Leadership, Communication, Teaching, etc.

 

Thank you Ivon for sharing with us!!!

 

I particularly agree with this statement: "We can blame technology for our inefficiency but the real issue is competing desires that yield competing desires on our attention."

 

Are we leveraging technology and running it to fit our lives....or is technology running us? 

 

What do you think?

Pedagogies involved in Games Based Learning: Does e-learning require a new pedagogy?


 

The teaching methods employed in the classroom today, have changed little in the last century. Teaching is almost unique in this regard. Somewhat belatedly, education is now going through its own transformation. The effects of information and communication technology (ICT) are beginning to impact on education in a fundamental way. While the environment in which learning takes place has been revolutionized, learning theories and teaching methods have not changed. Some say that there is no need to modernize pedagogy; others argue that pedagogy also needs to change. Secondly, during the last decades, a great number of immigrant students, has entered in schools; this has a result of an effort to have more differential educational plans in use. The use of serious game was designed using a role-playing strategy to allow the user to become embodied in a virtual environment and identify with objects and characters. The objective of the learning game was to provide a tailored contextual experience in a school environment that would have a positive effect on preconceptions, and change negative attitudes towards the role of serious games in the classroom. The learning game was designed to allow teachers to experience a range of educational activities, each built upon a clear and established pedagogy. Four learning game levels were developed with activities to match a specific learning theory. In order for the participant to experience a serious game that embodies Cognitive learning theory, it was necessary to design a scenario that focused on a specific cognitive function. Learning in a contextual environment will help support retention of knowledge (Lave and Wenger 1991 the sense of realism, smoke simulations and explosion sounds were incorporated with animated characters. There are four stages of learning: concrete learning, reflective observation, abstract conceptualization and active experimentation (Kolb 1984). Learning is shaped by positive and negative reinforcement (Skinner 1954). In order to execute this theory, the player is given a set of tasks to complete within a certain time frame. The current educational system is highly synchronous. Everything runs to a timetable.But digital learning material is inherently asynchronous. Web pages can be accessed atany time; videos can be watched whenever a student chooses; and podcasts can belistened to on the bus. The emergence of ubiquitous computing is creating new learning spaces.
