Tina Jameson's curator insight, October 15, 2015 10:04 PM

So much information and so little time!  This infographic and webpage provide clear guidance that teachers can use to help their students be more selective about the sources they choose to use.  

ICTE Solutions Australia's curator insight, December 28, 2015 11:43 PM

In an ICT integrated society, it is important that people are information literate. That means being able to search for and analyse information for their benefits. As websites on the Internet become more popular teachers need to teach their students the right skills and knowledge so that their students are able to become information literate. Any guide therefore, that will assist teachers in doing so is worth using as a resource as reference for both teachers and students to use.

David Bramley's curator insight, July 6, 2015 12:47 PM

This post is from 2012, but I guess MIT would want to claim they were ahead of the game!

 

I like it because it looks at a definition of blended learning and poses design questions.  But I particularly like the, 'Pre-course - Course - Post-course model it suggests, with the Course element having face-to-face interaction.  Looking at blended design in this way can help answer the question:  What is the best use of the face-to-face time I have available?

Steven E Teator's curator insight, July 19, 2015 10:05 AM

This research paper provides a more detailed account of Blended Learning.  It discusses real world examples that can easy be applied to the Flipped Classroom.

5 great Formative Assessment Strategies for teachers

5 great Formative Assessment Strategies for teachers | Literacy Coaching Network | Scoop.it

Formative assessment strategies in the classroom provide both teachers and students with invaluable information about what students understand, and what they don’t. These ungraded assessments are valuable guides for students to help them enhance their performance, and they also help teachers determine if further instruction is necessary.

When formative assessments are used consistently, and effectively, neither teachers nor students are surprised by their final grades.

Some formative assessments can take just a few minutes, while others require longer periods of time. The following are 5 great formative assessment strategies for teachers.

With technology development rapidly growing, formative assessments should take place on computers will sites that have videos and games students can watch and interactive with. It is a faster way to get feedback.

Everything Teachers Need to Know about Chromebooks (9 Tutorials) ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Literacy Coaching Network | Scoop.it
Chromebooks are making gigantic inroads in the education sector. Several school districts here in Canada and the States are adopting them as teaching tools within classrooms. Their growing popularity among the education community is attributable not only to their reasonably cheap price but also to a host of excellent features that you can not find in other devices. Chromebooks are easier to handle, faster and more secure. They are also " instantly personalizable by each student or teacher, and easy to manage, making them an ideal solution for bringing the power of the web to your classrooms".

Set up a FAQ page and refer demanding students to that, as a default starting point. Make it a one-stop information shop for common queries.but I do find you have to constantly refer students to it.

UDL and The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture

UDL and The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture | Literacy Coaching Network | Scoop.it

Jackie Gerstein proposes an experiential flipped classroom learning model where she believes there a  great opportunity to change the predominant didactic model of education that is especially prevalent in upper elementary through graduate school education.

 

"UDL is a strategy, a process that provides opportunities for all students, not just those with special needs (but I believe all learners have special needs), to be successful learners. This is the same goal for the flipped classroom model designed as an experiential learning cycle.

 

This model has experiential learning at the core of the learning process with the content videos supporting the learning rather than being the core or primary instructional piece. Experiential learning is the process of making meaning from direct experience.. Simply put, experiential learning is learning from experience. Experiential learning can be a highly effective educational method[ It engages the learner at a more personal level by addressing the needs and wants of the individual. For experiential learning to be truly effective, it should employ the whole learning wheel, from goal setting, to experimenting and observing, to reviewing, and finally action planning. This complete process allows one to learn new skills, new attitudes or even entirely new ways of thinking. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experiential_learning)"

 

Thank you Jackie for your insight in creating this model where all learners can experience success!
