Designing for Learning: Online social Networks as a Classroom Environment.

Designing for Learning: Online social Networks as a Classroom Environment. | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Numerous papers extolling the learning potential of online social networks and so called Web 2.0 services have been written by educational technology enthusiasts and innovators. The capacity for creativity, interactivity and collaboration afforded by these new social networking tools would appear to be a good fit for education. However, very few articles have been based on classroom research in actual learning environments with students and teachers.

 

This is a study well worth reading and thinking about because it focusses on teaching and learning. It demonstrates clearly that the use of social networking can be used successfully in the processes of learning. Designing for Learning: Online Social Networks as a Classroom Environment provides a model for schools to consider as a starting point for using social networking in pedagogy.

PLE, Do it Yourself and Education and the assumptions behind

PLE, Do it Yourself and Education and the assumptions behind | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

...

In conclusion, PLE, PLN, Do it yourself and online education via various means like MOOC have their own merits and limitations, and it would be important to question the assumptions behind each model of education and learning, in order to match the needs and expectations of BOTH educators and learners.

 

Learning in a landscape of practice or networks of practice is both challenging and rewarding, though, each promise comes also with basic questions: Is this sort of learning valued by the learners? Is it an effective way of learning? How? and Why? Research and continuous exploration through experimentation and application would likely provide the answer to the question of: What is knowledge? What is learning? And how does it occur at this digital age.

Twelve Ideas for Teaching with QR Codes | Edutopia

Twelve Ideas for Teaching with QR Codes | Edutopia | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

I like QR Codes;  I love Edutopia.

Great resource!

Blogger and PBL specialist Andrew Miller offers an array of creative suggestions for using Quick Response codes in the classroom.  I like to read articles like this to spark my own ideas.  Perhaps we could get students to use QR codes on the back of their business cards that send users to a resume, use them to refer to assignment exemplars in a CMS like Blackboard,  share them as links to online videos, or to provide different levels of instruction of a poem or text.

Education Across Borders: The India Perspective | MIT World

An eye-opening and important lecture to MIT students from an Indan perspective.

- near-future research from students will require local-solutions to global problems

-viruses are like terrorists.  They are science's example of waiting for right time, right conditions, and vulnerable victims.

 

Rickshaw drivers in India are frequent victims of tuberculosis after just a few years inhaling traffic fumes. This near-epidemic went unacknowledged until Kapil Sibal demanded a solution.

Content Curation Tools: 5 Different Approaches | Darwin Ecosystem

Content Curation Tools: 5 Different Approaches | Darwin Ecosystem | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

According to the Romain Goday, there are five distinct approaches to content curation. They are: 

 

1. The Expert Approach: Curators
A way to obtain relevant information with a reduced level of effort is to rely on experts. 

 

2. The Crowd Approach: Popularity
Most content curation tools use a series of algorithms to determine which content is popular and make it more visible to users. 

 

3. The User Behavior Approach: Personalization
Content personalization involves using technology to accommodate the different information needs between individuals. It surfaces content that is assumed to be more relevant for a specific user. 

 

4. The Relationships Approach: Social Graph

The social graph is an increasingly used approach to curate information. 

 

5. The Patterns Approach: Emergence
This approach consists of representing the emergence of content over the Web.

 

And for each one it provides an in-depth description, pros and cons as well as example of real tools utilizing that approach.

 

He concludes with a simple but insightful point:

 "Most of those approaches are combined by content curation tools in an attempt to increase information relevance for the users. 

Tools cannot effectively understand the context of the user.

So the challenge is to reduce the noise without filtering information that could be valuable for the user.
