Ken Morrison's insight:

The more I read, the more I want to read. Some great books have come out in the last 6 months. I'm really excited for "Jab Jab Jab Right Hook by Gary Vaynerchuck..  He gives great examples from real posts in social media about what businesses are doing right/wrong in their quest for helping their ideas spread. More importantly, he shares the science of how and why we need to treat different social media platforms differently.

What Project-Based Learning Is — and What It Isn’t | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

"The term “project-based learning” gets tossed around a lot in discussions about how to connect students to what they’re learning. Teachers might add projects meant to illustrate what students have learned, but may not realize what they’re doing is actually called 'project-oriented learning.' And it’s quite different from project-based learning..."

Crafting an Engaging Lecture | Inside Higher Ed | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

 

Ken's Key Takeaway:

I highly suggest reading this article.  It is short and practical.  Below is a quick overview taken directly from the reading.

Ken


1) Consider its purpose: 
2) Consider your approach:

3) Provide breaks throughout the lecture in which students take several minutes to reflect on what has been discussed thus far.
4) Provide time at the end for students to summarize what they learned and found interesting.


Other Ideas, Helpful Tools, and Resources:
• Focus on only a few big ideas and help the students to make connections between these ideas and the main themes in the course.

John Jantsch Does It Again! Free eBook "The Total Online Presence Blueprint"

John Jantsch Does It Again! Free eBook "The Total Online Presence Blueprint" | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

I present a 12-month plan of attack or blueprint for working on your presence in the coming year. I’ve long taught this “live by the calendar” approach as I think it helps business owners, who wear many hats, get above the overwhelm by taking it topic by topic and manageable bit by bit in an attempt to forge something that looks like continuous progress. 

Ken Morrison's insight:

My worst workout of the year so far was the time when I was listening to John Hantsch's podcast on this topic.  I was continually stopping to type out notes.  I am excited to dig into this free digital book.

 

John Jantsch is one of my favorite content creators and authors.  He shares so much practical content with achievable action sets. I fully understand why American Express promotes him as a great resource for helping small and medium size businesses.  Huge businesses love him also, but his target audience is busy small business owners.

A Pedagogical Framework For Digital Tools

A Pedagogical Framework For Digital Tools | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
We've needed a strong pedagogical framework for digital tools since the introduction of technology into education. Hopefully this helps.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas, Louise Robinson-Lay
Ken Morrison's insight:

I always appreciate frameworks.  Here are three frameworks to help us choose how we will use new technology in the classroom

more...
Dolly Bhasin 's curator insight, December 27, 2012 12:10 AM

The framework is based on a distinction between a monological, a dialogical, and a polyphonic form of teaching. The three forms of teaching can be distinguished by their different perceptions of how learning takes place, and by their different perceptions of the relations between subject matter, teacher and student. By considering which form of teaching one wants to practice, one may, on the basis of the pedagogical framework, assess whether it would be appropriate to use a specific tool in teaching.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, December 27, 2012 3:44 PM

changing among 4 different frameworks - interesting and short reading

Miloš Bajčetić's curator insight, December 28, 2012 2:46 AM

The monological form of teaching – Learning is the student's acquisition of this knowledge.Tools – distributing and intermediary tools.

 

The dialogical form of teaching – Learning is seen as the student's development of this inherent basis of knowledge. Tools that support students' problem oriented; simulations and more advanced learning games.

 

The polyphonic form of teaching – Learning is the student's participation in exchange of many different individuals' perception of the world.

Tools that support equal collaboration

10 Truths About Educational Technology

10 Truths About Educational Technology | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

This 10-year veteran in the edtech field shares 10 key points for us to all remember:

I LOVE #4.  It is a good reminder of something I knew.
1. The learning objective comes first.
2. No technology is perfect.
3. Digital natives? Sort of.
4. Make do.
5. You've got to know it to believe in it.
Teachers who routinely use tech—in the classroom and in their personal lives—know it's important and beneficial for their students. Those who don’t won’t.
6. Leaders have followers.

7. Filtering: Not so fast.
8. Technology might not be the best tool for the job.
9. Teaching and learning aren’t the same.
10. Aim high.

 

I am very happy that i graduted from a program that spent a lot of time talking about when technology is not the answer

Visual Storytelling for Marketers |

Visual Storytelling for Marketers | | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=endscreen&v=3JBQpTxXisg

 

 

 

Humans have been telling stories with pictures since the days of cave paintings, so we should be pretty good at it by now.

 

All right, want to increase your business? Then translate your business stories into videos.

 

I know I know, who's got the time and which is the best tool to use? Most of the stories I share with my clients happens in the board room. When I think of taking some of my business stories and creating a video or two to share on my website, I get just completely overwhelmed.

 

But this infographic drives home the necessity of creating these videos so that your stories can do your marketing for you. For example, for those of you who have products 85% of customers are likely to purchase a product after watching a video on your website about it. Wow!

 

For service businesses, 65% of the C-suite or top senior executives of the company will continue to research you after viewing one of your videos. Wow again!

 

There are quite a number of articles in this curated collection about tools and strategies for creating effective digital stories. So dig in, learn lots, and work creating these videos into your schedule. And I'll work hard on trying to take my own advice!

 

In the meantime, check out the rest of the infographic and see what other gems you can find.
