5K Videos And Counting, Curious Helps Teachers Monetize Bite-Sized Learning Lessons

5K Videos And Counting, Curious Helps Teachers Monetize Bite-Sized Learning Lessons | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it
Thanks to the proliferation of smart devices, cloud-based services and more fluid content creation and distribution systems, technology is fundamentally changing the way we learn. Not only is it easier and cheaper than ever before to find, create and consume learning content, but with better digital video solutions storming into every classroom, learning is actually becoming an enjoyable experience. While the web is now brimming with video-based learning tools, the majority of today’s popular platforms are focused on academic experiences and use cases, offering digital versions of classes, courses and lectures. Curious launched last summer to give life-long learners, hobbyists and curious minds a little video-based platform and marketplace to call their own. With short, “bite-sized” video lessons from over 700 teachers on topics that range from proper sewing technique and Pilates classes for beginners to advanced MS Excel wrangling, Curious is looking to be the more targeted, navigable and interactive version of YouTube — for continuing education. In the other words, your go-to destination for perusing and discovering cool “how-to”-style content on any subject, via the Web or mobile. Mobile has also been a key early focus for Curious, given how much the learning experience experience for “how-to” content, especially, can be improved by mobile access. If you’re using Curious to learn how to fix your car’s engine, much of its utility goes out the window if you can’t bring the instruction with you. Curious launched its first iPad app in August, and with its native iPhone app recently following on its heels, Curious now offers supports for most of the iOS ecosystem and allows users to access its library of micro-video lessons while on the go. Curious has long said that it isn’t interested in just being a one-sided, consumer-only learning platform with a big, old affordable library of how-to content, but a service provider that supports the other side (teachers) with tools to both share and monetize their lessons. The startup’s new “Courses” package essentially bundles lessons in the sequence they were likely already in (or should have been in) so that learners can master skills and topics in a more comprehensive, holistic way. Curious is making 50 of those Courses available at launch, and plans to expand its roster quickly over the coming months. Again, Courses are comprised of topics that require multiple, sequential lessons for the learner to acquire the skill, Kitch says. So, while Curious has previously offered users the ability to browse “related lessons” as they go, content can now be presented in a specific order and purchased as a bundle for a discounted rate. According to Kitch, prices will range from $9 to $49 per Course, contain between five and 30 lessons, and like all Curious lessons, belong to the learner for life once downloaded.

IFTTT + Evernote = Automated Research - edSocialMedia

IFTTT + Evernote = Automated Research - edSocialMedia | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it

"IFTTT can be combined with Evernote to make a powerful collaborative research tool, because it allows you to combine the collaboration and cloud-access of Evernote with the easy access to information offered by RSS feeds.  Here’s an example:

 

My public forum debate team is researching the Middle East for debates in November.  The Council on Foreign Relations runs a blog called “Middle East Matters,” which you can subscribe to via RSS.  So first I created an Evernote folder call “Middle East Matters,” then shared it with all the members of the team.  Then I created a recipe so that every time a new item is pushed out by the “Middle East Matters” RSS feed, IFTTT creates a new note in Evernote out of that item.  Voilà!  I have now effortlessly shared the latest updates from the Middle East with my PF team."

IFTTT ---> Evernote can be a powerful addition to the toolset for a group who research or track topics together (as is Diigo groups). With my students, we experiment with a lot of tools, then collaborative teams can decide on their own whether to use wikis or Google Docs, Twitter hashtags, Scoop.it, G+ Hangouts, on their project.

I tried it out. It has some good applications, but I couldn't get the embed code to work in our Sakai LMS. It also froze up when I used a YouTube video - so that limits its usefulness. Check it out and see if you have better results.

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it
The culmination of my quest for more powerful learning grounded in theory and research came when recently I conducted an experiment in pushing constructionism into the digital age.

 

Constructionism is based on two types of construction. First, it asserts that learning is an active process, in which people actively construct knowledge from their experience in the world. People don’t get ideas; they make them. This aspect of construction comes from the constructivist theory of knowledge development by Jean Piaget. To Piaget’s concept, Papert added another type of construction, arguing that people construct new knowledge with particular effectiveness when they are engaged in constructing personally meaningful products.

Imagine my surprise and joy when I realized that I had arrived at constructionism prior to knowing that such a theory even existed. I believe that thousands of other educators are unknowingly working within the constructionist paradigm as well. Although many within the Maker movement are aware that it has it’s roots in constructionism, the movement is gaining impressive momentum without the majority of Makers realizing that there is a strong theoretical foundation behind their work.

 

After I came to understand this connection between my practices and the supporting theoretical framework I was better able to focus and refine my practice. Even more importantly, I felt more confident and powerful in forging ahead with further experiments in the learning situations I design for my learners.
