Ilkka Tuomi: Open Educational Resources and the Transformation of Education

Ilkka Tuomi: Open Educational Resources and the Transformation of Education | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

The extremely rapid expansion of open educational resource (OER) initiatives and the millions of learners they attract can be understood as an indicator of an emerging revolution in education and learning. This article describes recent developments in this area and develops conceptual foundations for studies and policies on OER. We describe four different types of OER, locate these in a field of learning theories, and discuss how the wide adoption of OER may constrain and accelerate the transformation of learning and education in the knowledge society.

This is How to Use Twitter as a Curation Tool ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

Twitter bookmarks way outnumber all the other bookmarks I have in my Chrome browser. Whenever I come across a video, a guide, a tutorial, a graphic, or a well written article on Twitter I automatically add it to this list of bookmarks and from time to time I refer to these bookmarks to select for the content I want to share with you here as is the case with the awesome graphic below. I am also working on  a term paper for my  MA Ed  here in the Mount University. This paper is about  the use of twitter as a professional development tool for teachers and which I will share with you in PDF format once it is submitted .

Un QR-Code es un código de puntos en dos dimensiones, parecido a los tradicionales códigos de barras, capaz de almacenar mucha más información ya que los códigos QR contienen información tanto en sentido horizontal como vertical.

Para poder acceder a los contenidos de un QR debes disponer de un teléfono móvil con cámara y de un programa que sea capaz de descodificarlo.

Open access publishing takes a step forward - University World News

The European Union (EU) appears ready in principle to endorse the European Commission’s proposals for developing open access to scientific information arising from publicly funded research. But officials say there is some way to go before a detailed system can be agreed.

Ministers from the 27 member countries, meeting as the EU’s competitiveness council, last week took a first look at the Brussels text and “supported the idea of developing broader and more rapid access to scientific publications in order to help researchers and businesses to build on the findings of publicly funded research”, said the council.

Students Speak Up in Class, Silently, via Social Media

Students Speak Up in Class, Silently, via Social Media | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

Skeptics — and at this stage they far outnumber enthusiasts — fear introducing backchannels into classrooms will distract students and teachers, and lead to off-topic, inappropriate or even bullying remarks. A national survey released last month found that 2 percent of college faculty members had used Twitter in class, and nearly half thought that doing so would negatively affect learning.

Now that I've started using backchannel communication in my seminars and classes, I really miss it when it's not available.

Ken Morrison's comment, March 4, 2013 3:53 AM
I have used Twitter in a few classes. Students say they like it, but I fail to use it more often. It worked great as a break when I had two-hour classes. I would tell students to tweet about something new that they learned in the last hour and then take a break and/or questions. I would use break time to review the tweets via the common hashtag. We could start the next hour with a student-generated review and Q/A session. I was happy with the results, solid instruction & unscientific 'feeling' of the classroom.
Terry Doherty's curator insight, March 10, 2013 5:43 PM

Love the idea of engaging students to think freely ... without embarrassment to them or interrupting the teaher!
