Essential elements of digital citizenship

Essential elements of digital citizenship | modemlab | Scoop.it

Nearly all of the ISTE Standards list digital citizenship as one of the aspects of education technology that all members of a school or district should support. Specifically, the standards tend to focus on the safe, legal and ethical use of technology in schools.

 

This is certainly at the heart of the ideas behind digital citizenship, but as technology integration grows, not only in schools but in society as a whole, I believe the concept of digital citizenship will continue to expand.

edX offers a series of courses on education technology | modemlab | Scoop.it

"Do you have an idea of how to use technology to improve education? There are a multitude of possibilities, but developing that idea into a real product/programme that can be implemented with real students and teachers is not simple. Merging education with technology is a complex undertaking since it requires a strong knowledge of both fields, blending theoretical knowledge with technical practicalities. 

 

"edX is offering a MOOC starting on 8 October 2014 called Design and Development of Educational Technology for anyone who wants to get a deeper understanding of this field. It is a practical course using project-based methods and culminating in a presentation of your new edtech product. 

 

This course is part of a series of MOOCs on edX on the theme of Education Technology. The other courses in the series are:

 

- Introduction to Game Design and Development (October 2014)- Computer Games and Simulations for Investigation and Education (Q2 2015)- Implementation and Evaluation of Educational Technology (Q3 2015)

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, August 18, 2014 7:40 AM

Abstract


In Sweden, higher education has moved away from distance education, including physical meetings, to online education with no physical meetings at all. This article focuses on the shift from distance to online education using an educational management perspective that is based on economic, staff, and student data collected between 1994 and 2010 (Department of Education, Umeå University). The results showed that in 2005, the number of distance education students increased significantly. In 2007, when all distance courses shifted to online courses, the number of students increased even further. The online courses attract many more students compared to traditional campus courses. Overall, the transition from distance to online courses has contributed to more students, an economy of scale that makes it possible to increase pedagogic development work. The online courses have also contributed to better working conditions for teachers. Without a deliberate educational management strategy, general educational courses might have been discontinued, a choice that would threaten the study of education as an academic discipline per se. As a result of these conditions, we believe ICT pedagogical development needs technical and pedagogical support as well as strategic leadership.

by Lisa NielsenGoogle Hangouts on Air let you conduct a video conference with up to ten people that is live streamed and taped for later viewing. Earlier versions of hangouts, were quite clunky with a few glitches, but they've come a LONG way since I first wrote about them. Two great new features are that you can now do Google Hangout on Air events and you can get the embed code, YouTube link, and even link in advance. This means you can embed the hangout right on your website, blog, or other online space. "

Of course, there are still plenty of people interested in producing and taking MOOCs, but the founders of the American companies that create them have lately become about as scarce as the crew of the Mary Celeste. In 2014, Coursera founder Andrew Ng left day-to-day activities that company to join the Chinese search engine firm Baidu (although he remains Coursera’s Chairman of the Board). Earlier this year, Sebastian Thrun, founder of Udacity, departed that companyearlier this year perhaps frustrated by what he once famously called its “lousy product.” Last week, Coursera’s other co-founder, Daphne Koller, exited in order to join a subsidiary of Google...

Connectivism: Learning as a Community - Designed:2:Learn | modemlab | Scoop.it
In a modern world where knowledge objects are ubiquitous and openly accessible, the roles of educators and learners must evolve to meet the growing needs of the resulting high-paced, digital society. Connectivism is an emergent, net-enabled learning theory that suggests the most important result of a learning situation is the ability of the learner to make connections between distinct ideas using social capital and the affordances of digital networks.

How to Build a Better MOOC

How to Build a Better MOOC | modemlab | Scoop.it

"Report after report have revealed some of the inadequacies of massive open online courses: low completion rates, low engagement, inability to have impact with those who need education the most. So far, MOOCs have not lived up to the hype. But, as Maria Konnikova explores in the The New Yorker, there is a methodology for massive learning that dates back to 1962: catering to the individual. It’s a model already seen in GRE testing, which, among other techniques, switches up the sequence of questions based on the individual’s progress."

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, July 15, 2014 1:23 PM
Abstract

The teach-learn-assess cycle in education is broken in a typical massive open online course (MOOC). Without formative assessment and feedback, MOOCs amount to information dump or broadcasting shows, not educational experiences. A number of remedies have been attempted to bring formative assessment back into MOOCs, each with its own limits and problems. The most widely applicable approach for all MOOCs to date is to use peer assessment to provide the necessary feedback. However, unmoderated peer assessment results suffer from a lack of credibility. Several methods are available today to improve on the accuracy of peer assessment results. Some combination of these methods may be necessary to make peer assessment results sufficiently accurate to be useful for formative assessment. Such results can also help to facilitate peer learning, online discussion forums, and may possibly augment summative evaluation for credentialing.
