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

Digital Empathy

Digital Empathy | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it

Digital empathy is my effort to combine emotional, cognitive, and social skills into a media literacy curriculum. This emerging construct is informed by three theoretical lenses.


These include empathy phenomena (Batson, 2009), which helps frame a definition of empathy as an ability and process;


social information processing theory [SIP] (Walther, 1992) which outlines the differences between face-to-face (FtF) and computer mediated communication (CMC),


and new literacies (Leu, Kinzer, Coiro, Castek, & Henry, 2013), which highlight how new reading and writing skills impact learning in a digital age.


Together, these three lenses showcase how empathy is an integral component of emotional and cognitive development in both offline and online spaces.

How Parents Can Cultivate Empathy in Children.PDF | Making Caring Common

How Parents Can Cultivate Empathy in Children.PDF  | Making Caring Common | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it

http://sites.gse.harvard.edu/sites/default/files/making-caring-common/files/empathy.pdf


Empathy is at the heart of what it means to be human. It’s a foundation for acting ethically, for good relationships of many kinds, for loving well, and for professional success. And it’s key to preventing bullying and many other forms of cruelty.

 

Empathy begins with the capacity to take another perspective, to walk in another’s shoes. But it is not just that capacity. Salespeople, politicians, actors and marketers are often very skilled at taking other perspectives but they may not care about others.

 

Con men and torturers take other perspectives so they can exploit people’s weaknesses. Empathy includes valuing other perspectives and people. It’s about perspective-taking and compassion.


How can parents’ cultivate empathy? The following are five guideposts based on research and the wisdom of practitioners.


1. Empathize with your child and model empathy for others...

2. Make caring for others a priority and set high ethical expectations...

3. Provide opportunities for children to practice empathy...

4. Expand your child’s circle of concern...

5. Help children develop self-control and manage feelings effectively...

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?

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.
