The Science of Classroom Design [Infographic]

Studies show that the quality of your classroom environment is a significant determinant of student learning. Classrooms that are painted with color, lighted with full-spectrum lighting, and devoid of visual noise result in improved academic performance and decreased disruptive, off-task behavior.

Belle réflexion sur l'optimisation des espaces de cours en fonction des objectifs d'apprentissages poursuivis et des activités qui en découlent. Cela démontre bien la nécessité de garder des espace flexible comme ce à quoi devait servir l'Open learning Center de l'IFA.

Flipping the classroom isn't the answer -- let's scramble it (essay)

Flipping the classroom isn't the answer -- let's scramble it (essay) | MOOCs, Flips and Blends | Scoop.it

The “flipped classroom” is the idea of the moment, advocated by everyone from  Bill Gates to Eric Mazur, the pioneering science educator. This educational  innovation is exciting and promising – but I’d argue for a slight revision to  the discourse to make sure we don’t replace one rigid format with another. My  suggestion: let’s scramble, not flip, the classroom.

Kiruthika Ragupathi's insight:

Flipping, Blending OR Scrambling?? Whatever be the term, what is good for our students is the need to use both "direct instruction" and "facilitated practice" to intentionally help students meet our learning goals.

  • WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

    The  key factors are: Learners’ age, back ground knowledge, the purpose of learning, the learners’ circumstances (employed, students, unemployed, etc…)

  • DO YOU HAVE THE COURSE CURRICULUM?

    In many cases the course curriculum does exist, for example: National Curriculum, University course modules , In-house corporate training.

  • WHAT EXTERNAL PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS NEED TO BE MET?

    All external examination bodies provide an exam guide or syllabus which you have to insure your course will address them.

  • WHAT IS THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT?

    Would your learners attend any face to face classes? Do they access their course from home, work, or college? Do they work as a group or individuals?

Preparing for the digital university: a review of the history and current state of distance, blended, and online learning | MOOCs, Flips and Blends | Scoop.it

The sheer scale of numbers of students led to bold proclamations of education disruption and a sector on the verge of systemic change. However, from the perspective of 2015, these statements appear increasingly erroneous as moocs have proven to be simply an additional learning opportunity instead of a direct challenge to higher education itself. Many of the issues confronting early mooc development and offerings could have been reduced if greater consideration was given to research literature in learning sciences and technology enabled learning.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, August 22, 2013 7:05 AM

I'm into the second week of my second MOOC with Coursera, studying Social Psychology (or in other words....understanding people and behaviours). I would advocate this style of learning for anyone who hasn't tried it yet - it's a great way to expand your knowledge into topics that might otherwise be difficult (or expensive) to access. This method of learning is particularly suited to continuos professional development. I'm less convinced that MOOCs would or could replace full or part-time degree courses.
