What's Invasive | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it
Kathleen Cercone's insight:
Invasive species are a threat to native plants and animals, crowding natives, consuming food sources, or acting as fire hazards. We have found that having groups such as schools run short-term "campaigns" is highly effective for locating invasive species. Join the fight against invasive species!

The Teacher's Guide To Wearable Tech In The Classroom - Edudemic

The Teacher's Guide To Wearable Tech In The Classroom - Edudemic | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it
Wearable technology is a pretty cool concept to me, though I’d still probably classify most of it as less “now”, more “future“. While there is a wide array of products currently on the market, the most well known wearable gadgets (which I try to distinguish in my mind from the more generalized “wearable technology”, which …

Worth keeping this mind.

Rasma's curator insight, June 5, 2:06 AM

These three are equally used by professionals on a daily basis? Need to check those sources. This "quick" chart is indeed quick - but is it so comprehensible?

 

Pritchard's "Effective Online Learning" (2007) is a good source for clearly explaining learning theory and relating it to online instruction.

 

My research this year has shown nill online-only course design that achieves anything close to constructivism. The hybrid courses with part face-to-face and part online are the best models for motivating students.

 

However, no study showed learning was improved, in fact the opposite: learning was the same for the hybrid and face-to-face groups... yet the student self-assessment for the hybrid group was higher. In other words, the students who had some online component in their course had a higher perception of their abilities than did the classroom only students. But the actual abilities were the same for both groups.

 

Constructivism - needed for any subject in which independent critical thinking is the goal - is the hardest to achieve online. Only simulated classrooms where dialog and discovery, made through ongoing attempts and feedback is possible, come close to it.

 

In other words, beware MOOCS as a course design to be emulated.

Throughout middle school and high school conducting lab experiments was my favorite part of every science class that I took. There was something about the hands-on aspect of science labs that always got me excited about learning. I'm sure many of you felt the same way and that your students feel that way now.
