About MOOC Completion Rates: The Importance of Student Investment | OLnet OER Research | Future of Online Education | marked for sharing | Scoop.it
First of all, we need to recognize that completion rates for MOOCs really have a different meaning than those for regular university courses. This is mainly because of the differing level of investment the students make from the start.

10 free tools for creating infographics | Infographic | Creative Bloq | marked for sharing | Scoop.it
For all the importance we place on text, it's an indisputable fact that images are processed in the brain faster than words. Hence the rise and rise of the infographic which, at its best, transforms complex information into graphics that are both easy to grasp and visually appealing. No wonder magazine readers and web visitors love them.

How Technology Trends Have Influenced the Classroom

How Technology Trends Have Influenced the Classroom | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

Between societal changes and technological breakthroughs, it’s become abundantly clear that the human brain is transforming the way it processes and learns information. While there are many discussions about whether or not this is good or bad for us as a society, it’s definitely a change.

 

As educators, it’s our job to make sure that students (and adults) are learning. Part of that process isn’t only about making an engaging activity or lesson, but also realizing how the modern brain learns. Teachers all over America are faced with this challenge of keeping students engaged in the classroom when their world outside of school is one of constant engagement and stimulation. Knowing the world outside of our institutional walls is only one step in addressing modern learning styles. How to act and adjust schools today is the next step in making the classroom of today ready for tomorrow.

 

To do that, let’s examine which features of society (and media) have changed and then consider what we can do in education to use it as an advantage for learning.

Why You Shouldn’t Stalk Your Kid Online

Why You Shouldn’t Stalk Your Kid Online | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

A teacher should create a profile that is herself or himself as a teacher, on Facebook or wherever your cohort of kids are. Never go and friend a student on your own, but if a student friends you, accept. And if a student reaches out to you online, respond. If you see something concerning about a student on a social media account, approach him or her in school. Give your password to the principal, so it’s all transparent, and then be present.
