SLMOOC 2014

SLMOOC 2014 | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it

Hola, a todos! La invitación es para que participen en SLmooc 2014. Un mooc en Second Life. Es en Inglés y en Español. El tema central es aprender y conectarse en línea para aprender y enseñar en mundos virtuales. En especial en Second Life.

Educadores de diferentes partes del mundo estarán compartiendo sus experiencias en mundos virtuales Y cómo podemos utilizarlos en situaciones de enseñanza mixta (blended learning) Donde combinamos los elementos en línea con la experiencia cara a cara en el salón de clase tradicional.

Se contará con la ayuda de todos y se ofrecerán tutoriales, clases y tours a los principiantes. La idea es conectarse y funcionar como comunidad de práctica. Las sesiones ocurrirán de manera asincrónica (moodle) y sincrónica en (WizIQ & Second Life) con grabaciones, ademas de Google Drive, YouTube, Vimeo,pinterest, Facebook y Twitter.

 

Tenemos tres areas de mayor interaccion: El area de curso en WizIQ, Nuestro centro en Second Life, y Moodle for Teachers (M4T)Moodle website. En el curso en WIzIQ tendremos sesiones en vivo y grabadas, así como también los tutoriales (courseware) las discusiones diarias en (coursefeed).

 

A diferencia de los cursos tradicionales basados en el dictado de cursos de contenidos, el SLmooc se basa en el aprendizaje reflexivo, activo de compartir, conectarse y colaborar. El logro para el participante es el de aprender  a través de conexiones significativas en la interacción social.

Para recibir su certificado, se requiere que el participante lleve un record de su participación en un wiki o blog o sitio web u otro ambiente que sea de su agrado. 

 

Aca tienen las diferentes areas y herramientas que tenemos para conectarnos y aprender de manera activa y significativa.

 

Twitter Hashtag:  #SLMOOC2014

Saffia & Elrik Ice Bucket Challenge - YouTube

Saffia and Elrik decided to donate their challenge to the charity Water Aid. Saffia says – “Here in the UK, it’s become customary to choose which charity to donate your Ice Bucket challenge to. While we are both supportive of the work done by ALS, we decided that we would like to raise awareness of a charity connected with clean water – something we wish as a blessing for people at the end of every Designing Worlds show. We’re therefore making our donation to Water Aid

Dr. Doris Molero's insight:

This is one of my new students from graphic design school.. He's a very creative person... Keep on shining, Carlos!

Tenji Takaishi's curator insight, September 15, 12:38 PM

Hello, I'm Carlos Delgado. I'm 20 years old and I study Graphic Design at Urbe, in Maracaibo, Venezuela. I live in the north-west part of the city.

I love comics, mangas, illustration, Caricatures and specially Videogames. I enjoy mostly RPG games like Final Fantasy and Persona games. I work as a Caricaturist for people around the world in the webpage Fiverr. This is the link of my profile: https://www.fiverr.com/tenjidesign/make-a-high-quality-head-caricature?funnel=2014091519313346919411760

 I don't like smoking or drinking alcohol, i really dislike people who smokes in your face.

 My dreams are living in Canada with my husband and have a print shop and an illustration studio.

 

I've always liked English, i've studied it since i was 8 years old, the best way to learn english in my opinion is reading on the internet, playing videogames and watching movies in english.

 

About Graphic Design and Illustration.

 When i'm drawing Caricatures for people around the world, i really feel motivated by the different stories people have to tell about the caricature they want, i could be for a holliday, a gift, a business and many other crazy reasons, it's really fun to know so many different -and good looking and interesting- people.

My best ability is drawing Caricatures, Cartoons, and other Illustration, though i'm also good at designing prints.

 I work alone, though i love the company of my husband and my brothers when i'm working or having breaks from work.

 

My best source of help is excellent quality data, which would be Good quality photos for Caricatures, good references for Illustrations, and accurate explanation for designs.

 

A couple months ago i realized that Drawing and Illustrating is my thing, it's my main source of work and i get better as i work so i really want to focus on that, not only because of profit but also because it's what i love to do.

Reading increases empathy, a high demand skil

Reading increases empathy, a high demand skil | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it

Education is broadening its focus from main academics to include emotional and social skills. Empathy is a skill that is increasingly sought after, not just in classrooms, but also in professional spaces.


But how does one learn empathy?
Read. Read more.


Research shows that reading literature helps readers understand characters, their thoughts, motivations, and feelings.

 

Readers also predict what will happen next to characters, and link actions to consequences. These skills translate to the real world, where readers can understand the motivations and feelings of people they interact with, as well as predict what they may do next.

 

Why are employers emphasizing empathy?

Reading Skills.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 7, 3:51 PM

I used novel studies and we explored the interactions, the conflicts between characters i.e. Philip and Timothy in The Cay. Students enjoyed the books and found themselves identifying in various ways with the characters as they matured.
