Jim Lerman's insight

 

EdTechTeacher, co-founded by Tom Daccord and Justin Reich, is a wonderful edtech consulting and training organization. Among many things that it does, ETT sponsors conferences, workshops, and leadership seminars. They are perhaps most well known for their Teacher iPad Summits held each year in Boston and San Diego

 

ETT's website hosts many resources, this Scoop focuses on their outstanding (and growing) collection of video tutorials (185 strong as of today...March 30, 2015). You may find the library on Vimeo (just click on the headline or the image above).

 

Each video provides a professionally produced demo/explanation of how to use some the the latest and greatest apps and techniques. Recent examples include "Pop up Video with Explain Everything," "VideoNot.es Tutorial," "Snagit Video Tutorial," and "Kaizena Video Tutorial."

 

All of this material is free. What a generous contribution by these wonderfully talented and creative people!

Digital Age Skills for Educators | Educator Innovator ~ by An-Me Chung

Digital Age Skills for Educators | Educator Innovator ~ by An-Me Chung | On education | Scoop.it
Mozilla has recently kicked off two exciting new planning projects to help in- and out-of-school educators identify and teach digital-age skills, and to prototype badges with clear learning and achievement outcomes related to those skills. Mozilla is working with an advisory group drawn from the Mozilla community, industry, higher education, policymakers, and others to ensure the content and evidence is grounded in real-world application. Finally, Mozilla is making sure to document lessons learned for broader reach and information back to interested stakeholders.

The Leveraging Linked Learning and Career-ready Badges project, funded by the Irvine Foundation, will create and prototype digital badges with Linked Learning educators in California. The Afterschool, Digital Age Skills Badges and Competency-based Learning project, funded by the Mott Foundation, will also create a set of digital badges for prototyping and piloting, as well as to influence policymakers on the important role of afterschool programs in supporting and supplementing learning.

How To Use Google Voice Commands In Google Drive ~ Edudemic ~ by Aiden Wolfe | On education | Scoop.it
Since its inception, Google Drive has been a source of excitement for innovation-minded educators. However, as with any new teaching technology, you may find yourself thinking “it sounds intriguing, but will it really make a difference?” In regards to Drive features like audio feedback, the answer to that question is an unequivocal yes. Aside from offering convenience and helping spare teachers from endless amounts of typing, the addition of voice commenting brings with it profound benefits to the learning experience as a whole. Below, you’ll find five compelling reasons to give it a try, as well as a simple guide on how to get started.

Bloom's Revised Taxonomy Action Verbs infographic - e-Learning Infographics

Bloom's Revised Taxonomy Action Verbs infographic - e-Learning Infographics | On education | Scoop.it
Bloom’s Taxonomy was created in 1956 under the leadership of educational psychologist Dr Benjamin Bloom in order to promote higher forms of thinking in education, such as analyzing and evaluating concepts, processes, procedures, and principles, rather than just remembering facts (rote learning). It is most often used when designing educational, training, and learning processes.

Bloom saw the original Taxonomy as more than a measurement tool. He believed it could serve as a:

common language about learning goals to facilitate communication across persons, subject matter, and grade levels;
basis for determining for a particular course or curriculum the specific meaning of broad educational goals, such as those found in the currently prevalent national, state, and local standards;
means for determining the congruence of educational objectives, activities, and assessments in a unit, course, or curriculum; and
panorama of the range of educational possibilities against which the limited breadth and depth of any particular educational course or curriculum could be contrasted.

The original Taxonomy provided carefully developed definitions for each of the six major categories in the cognitive domain. The categories were Knowledge, Comprehension, Application, Analysis, Synthesis, and Evaluation. With the exception of Application, each of these was broken into subcategories. The categories were ordered from simple to complex and from concrete to abstract. Further, it was assumed that the original Taxonomy represented a cumulative hierarchy; that is, mastery of each simpler category was prerequisite to mastery of the next more complex one.

Lorin Anderson, a former student of Bloom, and David Krathwohl revisited the cognitive domain in the mid-nineties and made some changes. This new taxonomy reflects a more active form of thinking and is perhaps more accurate. Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy improved the usability of it by using action words. The Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy Action Verbs infographic includes some action words that are useful in writing learning objectives.

When working with digital image files, it is essential to know the differences between each one, so you know when to use them. The main difference between files formats is how they are used when designing for the web and the outcome they produce. One produces highly optimized simple graphics, another is used for most images, and the third option is used for complex graphics, gradients and transparency.

What will happen to legacy higher education providers when the ownership society ceases to exist? We are in the midst of a reordering of our material world, a shift away from owning to renting, buying to consuming. How will this shift impact higher education?
 
If I lived in a city I would never own a car. Why absorb the auto expenses of ownership in a world where transportation is available at touch of a smart phone? Who would want to deal with repairs and insurance, parking and depreciation, when an Uber ride (or a ZipCar borrow) is a click away?

Stanford President John L. Hennessy on Information Technology and the Future of Teaching and Learning

The "unbundling" of degrees that many are predicting -- where students assemble the learning they want, offered in person or online, by one or more institutions to earn credentials -- is something that Hennessy predicted was the future of continuing education and professional education. "Online technologies will dominate this marketplace," he said. And this will include many professionally oriented master's programs, he said. But he rejected the idea that this would be or should be the future of undergraduate education.
