Technoconstructivist: "teachers not only integrate technology into traditional views of instruction, but are willing to reshape those views and explore wholly new learning models made possible by technology. For technoconstructivists, technology is not just an instructional tool, it is a way to transform the classroom into a new and vital learning environment for students.

How to motivate MOOC learners

How to motivate MOOC learners | M-learning in 9-12 education | Scoop.it

The merits of online learning, especially in the context of MOOCs have long been discussed and we are all aware that Massive Open Online Courses offer a great level of flexibility in terms of time and space. MOOC Learners do not have to travel long distances to be able to access high-quality content from top universities in the world. Learning takes place "just in time" and "when needed". On top of these, I think being able to connect with people from all around the world is one of the greatest characteristics that MOOCs offer learners.

 

While Individual learning is still meaningful for those who prefer self-paced learning, I think the social aspect of MOOCs is a great learning value especially when different learner needs and styles in a single course are considered. Some people may need more social interactions than others, so those people need to be provided with the opportunity to interact with one another to get better learning results and satisfaction from the course. Social learning theories like social constructivism also emphasize this aspect in teaching and learning suggesting that knowledge construction occurs through meaningful negotiations and collaboration between people (McLoughlin & Lee, 2007).

How do Digital Portfolios help students learn?

How do Digital Portfolios help students learn? | M-learning in 9-12 education | Scoop.it

How do digital portfolios help students learn? Where is the evidence that this assessment strategy actually supports improved teacher practice and increased student achievement? Why should teachers “do” digital student portfolios in the first place, since they are not required? How do performance and progress portfolios “mesh”?

I have been asked these questions multiple times in the past, and I am sure I will be asked again in the future. When initially confronted with one of these inquiries, I would attempt to work my way through a response, in hopes that I sounded like I knew what I was talking about. The fact is: I didn’t. How could I?


Digital portfolios for learners is a relatively new concept. Nowadays, I readily admit that I don’t have definitive responses to these questions. I will sometimes even ask the same questions of the person asking me. I could learn something!

Communicating with parents in the digital world

Communicating with parents in the digital world | M-learning in 9-12 education | Scoop.it
This post was written by Erin Dye, a ClassDojo Thought Partner who works in professional development at Green Light Learning





Gone are the days when you only had access to parents via one-way monthly newsletters or twice-a-year parent teacher conferences. Thanks to technology you can easily keep in touch with your students’ parents all year-round.


Here are some tips to get your communicating with parents in the digital world: 





Keep a Class Blog


Rather than sending home a monthly or weekly newsletter to parents that might never make it out of the bottom of your students’ backpacks, try starting a class blog. Set a schedule for posting and share that schedule with parents. Allow moderated comments on the posts to get parents involved with the classroom.


Have your students do most of the blogging. Assign one student a week to be the class chronicler. Have that student take photos, record interviews with other students, and summarize what the class learned. Weebly is an easy platform for students of all ages to use.     


Get your class blog linked to your school’s homepage to show all the exciting work your class is doing!


Use a Messaging Service


Sending individual texts or emails to parents is time consuming and not very private. Let a messaging service, such as ClassDojo Messenger, do all the work for you. Once students and parents opt into the system, it allows you to easily send text message blasts to update all parents at once, or you can privately message them to keep them up-to-date on their child’s progress. You don’t see their phone numbers and they don’t see yours. This is a great option for families who may not have home Internet but do have smartphones.


Set Up a Class Social Media Account


If parents don’t want to have their phones buzzing all the time, consider starting a class Twitter account or Facebook page. You can use the page to share updates, photos, and links to student work. If your students are under 13, be sure to set the account to private. To view the page, all parents will need to have Twitter or Facebook accounts (many of them probably already do). Before setting up any class social media accounts, review your school’s Privacy Policy and check with administrators.


Make Parents Feel Welcome


Let parents know that your classroom is a welcome space for them. Consider inviting parents to your classroom on days when students are giving presentations or sharing projects. Working parents can use Skype or Google Hangouts to visit virtually.

Google Drive: Collaborating with others

Google Drive has some wonderful features that enhance collaborative and group work. The video below by Andrew Boan walks you through the different collaborative features in Drive and shows you how to use each one of them. Some of the things Boan covers in this tutorial include:

 

How to create a shared folderHow to share the folder with othersAdd a file to a shared folderUpload a file directly into the shared folderHow to create and share a new document in shared folderHow to work collaboratively on a documentOne of the great feature I love about Google Drive is the ability to share shared folders with others. You can easily create a shared folder and share it with your students. Anytime you add something to this folder, all students will be able to see it instantly in their Drive. You can use shared folder to share assignments, learning materials, documents, and videos with your students. In this way you will not have to worry if every student has got a copy for they can all access it in their Drives. Here is a step by step guide on how to create a shared folder on Google Drive.

Traditional vs. Modern Learning Systems

Traditional vs. Modern Learning Systems | M-learning in 9-12 education | Scoop.it

Forget the definitions of the traditional learning systems and focus our sights on a modern learning system, regardless of its classification or name.


The system we all consider first is the LMS – the Learning Management System. It is called a Learning Management System because it has traditionally focused on course administration, classroom management, and learner enrollment. Reporting is a classical element of the LMS, but it has been limited by the standard upon which formal training content is built – SCORM and AICC. The new Tin-Can standard (xAPI) promises to enable tracking of the most common forms of learning: informal and social learning. Thus, regardless of the “buzz,” it is worthy of a serious look.


The Learning Content Management System (LCMS), the LMS’s less popular brother, is often overlooked by training organizations in lieu of desktop and rapid authoring tools for developing and managing their learning content. However, recent developments, like the drive to make learning content smaller and to take learning to the streets in the form of mobile performance support, have finally alerted learning professionals to the fact that separating content from presentation is necessary to produce learning content for any type of intervention, delivered from any system, and experienced on any device. Personalized learning paths will continue to elude us unless we can break content down into chunks that are data rich and organized by competency, job role, or subject. Content is still king, and the management and delivery systems we choose must facilitate context and conversation in order to cripple the forgetting curve.

How educators around the world are implementing mLearning

How educators around the world are implementing mLearning | M-learning in 9-12 education | Scoop.it

In less than a decade, mobile technology has spread to the furthest corners of the planet. Of the estimated 7 billion people on Earth, 6 billion now have access to a working mobile phone. Africa, which had a mobile penetration rate of just 5% in the 1990s, is now the second largest and fastest growing mobile phone market in the world, with a penetration rate of over 60% and climbing.

The phones themselves are not advanced by developed nations’ standards. Most people in developing countries have what are called “feature phones,” which are less sophisticated and powerful than smartphones and have fewer features. But they do have numeric keypads, and can access the internet on a tiny screen–which, by the way, is not a tiny screen to them but a window of vast opportunity.
