50 Apps That Clarify 50 New Ways To Learn | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it

"Learning through play. Self-directed learning. Flipped learning. Mobile learning. Collaborative learning. Social learning. It’s all here. Alone, none offer the turn-key approach to education that textbooks have traditionally turned to, but that’s part of the strength. As education technology grows, we can adapt to new learning models that take advantage of the fragmented but enormous potential of self-directed, creative, collaborative, and almost entirely mobile learning."

RSLN | Lance Weiler: transmedia storytelling and as learning tools | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it
Réalisateur, producteur, professeur à Columbia et membre de l’Institut de recherche sur le futur du film de l’Université de New York (NYU), Lance Weiler se définit comme un « storyteller ». Son métier ? Créer des contenus narratifs transmedia pour éduquer et inspirer, à l’image de Pandemic, présenté au festival Sundance en 2011 ou Body/ Mind/ Change, réalisé en collaboration avec David Cronenberg. Nous l’avons interrogé à l’approche d’un événement dont il est le fondateur, Learn Do Share, qui aura lieu à l’ESCP Europe (Paris) du 9 au 11 avril.

This issue of the UKED magazine has one article that you should check out. They surveyed teachers and asked ideas they had found on Twitter and implemented in their classroom. The top 25 are shared in this article, and many include a link to additional resources. There are many that you will know, but there are a few that were new to me (at least, the acronyms the used were). Below is a list of five of the ideas, which they refer to as pedagogies. Check out the link to see a larger version of the image above as well as additional information on each.(And this article starts on page 19 in the magazine.)

* DIRT feedback (which stands for Dedicated Improvement and Reflection Time)

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, April 19, 11:21 AM

This exciting exhibit underscores the blending of boundaries between art and technology  (along with hints of potentials in storytelling to come).  When my daughter went to Parsons to get an MFA in exactly that--Design and Technology, I can see that at the time, as cool as I thought it was, I didn't understand the full magnitude of that kind of degree.  Do we handicap our kids by thinking about subjects to study in the ways we always have--in silos--rather than integrative?  We're concerned about encouraging the study of STEM skills particularly among girls but do we talk about them as part of the arts?  Or mention that there is no engineering without design?  (as in, engineer what?)  


Parents/Mentors/Anybody--if you're near this exhibition, take your or somebody else's kids (with permission, of course).  Talk to them about the stories the creators are trying to tell AND talk to them about how those cool things are a product of science, technology AND art, integrated into a powerful thing.  Tell them that every art lesson can be translated by technology and every science lesson can be expressed in some kind of art or design.  (You'll be introducing them to the unsung hero of every venture--art or science--user experience.)  Science, like art, exists as expressions of human creativity for the (presumed) betterment of humanity.  Every human experience is a story.

Robert Gagne’s Nine Steps of Instruction: Do’s and Don’ts in E-Learning | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it

"In 1985, American educational psychologist Robert Gagne created a nine-step process of instructional design which can guide the process of learning. The process is called ‘The Events of Instruction’ where in each event has a definite purpose of supporting learning and leads to definite outcomes.


Gagne’s model can serve as guidelines to creating a result-oriented e-learning instructional design for workplace training too. Below are the Nine Events of Instruction and the Do’s and Don’ts that must be kept in mind:"

ESL Teacher Training in 3D Virtual Worlds

ESL Teacher Training in 3D Virtual Worlds | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it

Although language learning in 3D Virtual Worlds (VWs) has become a focus of recent research, little is known about the knowledge and skills teachers need to acquire to provide effective task-based instruction in 3D VWs and the type of teacher training that best prepares instructors for such an endeavor. This study employs a situated learning approach to teacher training and explores what online teaching skills emerge in the process of collaborative situated learning, how these skills develop, and whether collaborative situated learning is an effective method of training instructors to teach in 3D VWs.
