50 Things To Do On The iPad

50 Things To Do On The iPad | On education | Scoop.it

While the iPad is not the savior for learning–or even mobile learning for that matter, if you use one for five minutes it’s easy to see that it is an amazing piece of hardware.

We’ve talked about how to use them in a PBL environment. And how to record ideas with them. And even separated ideas for using the iPad in the classroom by complexity. (Or, see ten of our top iPad posts here.)

Could Video Feedback Replace the Red Pen? – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Could Video Feedback Replace the Red Pen? – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | On education | Scoop.it

Writing useful comments on students’ work can be a fine art. And for instructors who put a lot of effort into crafting a critique, there’s always a substantial risk students will skip the written feedback and go right to the grade.

When Michael Henderson is grading his students’ final assignments, he likes to skip the written comments for them. Instead of a red pen, Mr. Henderson, a senior lecturer in education at Monash University, in Australia, takes out a video camera. He records a five-minute, unscripted critique for each student. He doesn’t bother editing the videos, even if he says “um” a lot or has to rephrase a sentence or two.

Lessons Learned from a 3-year Case Study on the Flipped Classroom | Echo360 | On education | Scoop.it
I’m a big fan of audio books and there is nothing like listening to a great book narrated by the author himself. We’ve published the research results of a flipped classroom success story at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. But, at our recent Active Learning Conference, attendees were able to hear that same story from the researcher himself, Dr. Russell Mumper. He described his experiences in flipping the classroom, “from design to implementation to assessment as one of the most profound educational experiences of my career.”

Thank you George for providing a narrative about these 8 things to share with the education world.

Nonetheless, whatever it takes for people to finally catch up and educate themselves about easier searching techniques!

Martin Hawksey - Learning Analytics: Threats and opportunities

"My biggest fear is Learning Analytics just becomes ‘computer says no’. I’m reassured that there are many people working very hard to make sure this doesn’t happen, but in the glitz and glamor of ‘big data’, prediction algorithms and dashboards there is a danger that we start caring about the wrong thing. For me the biggest opportunity is analytics are used as feedback, helping inform the conversation."

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, January 22, 11:17 AM

Here is some exciting news for those education advocates that have worked to change federal policy to include competency-based education. Take a few minutes to comment on Senator Alexander's draft to include new assessment options in the re-authorization of ESEA.


"Senator Alexander’s discussion draft proposes two policy changes that would advance the K-12 competency education movement. He is accepting comments on his discussion draft until February 2, 2015 at fixingNCLB@help.senate.gov.

  • The draft proposes two assessment options. The first would maintain current law by requiring statewide testing annually in grades 3 through 8 and once in high school. The second would establish a state-defined option where states could develop an assessment system that may include any combination of annual statewide summative assessments, grade span assessments, and competency-based performance assessments.
  • The draft proposes to let states use federal funding reserved for the design and implementation of state assessment instruments to build competency-based assessments."

"Both education and openness, in their deepest and truest senses, seem to converge on relationships of generosity and care between human beings. I think that’s important. It has implications for the future of open education, which to be true to both “open” and “education” needs significantly more intellectual and financial investment in understanding how to enable and support the development of these relationships of generosity and care."

Exactly How A Learning Management System Can Improve Your Teaching ~ TeachThought

Exactly How A Learning Management System Can Improve Your Teaching ~ TeachThought | On education | Scoop.it

by Jill Margerison

 

"With the surge of ‘Big Data’ and uber-connected students, expectations regarding education are changing. Increasingly, like much of the interaction in our society these days, feedback from the teaching fraternity is required to not only be rapid, but also dynamically flexible, ongoing and personalised. Accordingly, the future of teaching involves teachers fulfilling the multiple role of instructor, analyst and facilitator. The future of teaching involves ‘learning analytics’.

"Whilst ‘learning analytics’ might signal change, it also heralds new opportunities. Working with ‘learning analytics’ can leverage your educational delivery further than just the constraints of the classroom walls and the tight regime of time-tabled school days."
