"I would simply urge UNESCO to respect the wishes of those people who are not commercial publishers or multi-million-dollar educational institutions, to recognize the intent of people creating NC-licensed resources to ensure they can be accessed for free, and to recognize resources licensed with a NC clause as OERs with equal standing."

Collective Intelligence | Conversation | Edge

Collective Intelligence | Conversation | Edge | On education | Scoop.it

Pretty much everything I'm doing now falls under the broad umbrella that I'd call collective intelligence. What does collective intelligence mean? It's important to realize that intelligence is not just something that happens inside individual brains. It also arises with groups of individuals. In fact, I'd define collective intelligence as groups of individuals acting collectively in ways that seem intelligent. By that definition, of course, collective intelligence has been around for a very long time. Families, companies, countries, and armies: those are all examples of groups of people working together in ways that at least sometimes seem intelligent.

David Wiley - Agreeing with Stephen: Perspective Matters

"In a recent email to the (closed) oer-community mailing list, Stephen argued that perspective plays a significant role in this debate. He couldn’t be more correct. Just as there is not One True License, there is not One True Perspective on the free, nonfree, open, libre, etc., debate"

How 21st Century Thinking Is Just Different - TeachThought | On education | Scoop.it

If the 20th century model was to measure the accuracy and ownership of information, the 21st century’s model is form and interdependence. The close thinking needed to grasp this is not beyond the reach of a typical middle school student, but it may be beyond their thinking habits.

The corridor of uncertainty: Learning by Facebook

The corridor of uncertainty: Learning by Facebook | On education | Scoop.it

Many learning management systems today try to make their discussion forums resemble Facebook since that has become the default social network of the vast majority of students and teachers. It's logical then to try and see if a Facebook group could be used as a replacement for the LMS at least on a course basis. That's exactly what a group of Israeli university teachers have written about in a new article in IRRODL (International review of research in open and distance learning), Facebook groups as LMS: A case study (Hagit Meishar-Tal, Gila Kurtz, and Efrat Pieterse).

Instructors have a new free resource to help them integrate content from TED talks into their courses. TED has teamed up with publisher John Wiley & Sons to create PC- and iPad-based content that can be used to support lessons on happiness studies and statistics, with more on the way. TED is a non-profit organization that holds events drawing experts and presenters from multiple fields to share their work and thinking in a plethora of areas. Those "talks" are recorded and freely shared on the TED Web site.

TED Studies, as the new program is named, combines recorded TED video sessions on a given topic and adds essays and activities to round out each set of programs.

Find and Drop Images, Quotes and Info References Into Your Presentations with the New Google Research Tool

Find and Drop Images, Quotes and Info References Into Your Presentations with the New Google Research Tool | On education | Scoop.it

 

Robin Good: I used to love the Google contextual mini-browser (the Google Deskbar - 2003), something probably most people today have never seen nor have a memory of, but which in my humble opinion, was one of the best and most useful tools released by Google ever.

 

Well the little mini-search tool is back in a new customized format inside the Google Docs Presentation tool, where you can now easily search for reference, quotes, information and images related to the topic you are working on in your presentation.

 

Search becomes contextual and the relevant information found can be immediately integrated into the work we are creating. (Any information or image you find with the Google Research Tool can be intuitively selected and dragged onto the slide area, where it can be sized and positioned in any way you like.)

 

Each content item found with the Google Research Tool and utilized in your slide content is automatically linked back to its original source to simplify the credit and attribution process.

 

Extremely useful. Especially for quotes and images.

Engaging Students Through Social Media: Real World Experience, Creativity... | On education | Scoop.it

Social media has become an essential part of most people’s everyday lives, from checking Facebook and Twitter to posting blogs, Pinterest listings, and uploading YouTube videos. However, and with smartphones making it easier than ever to spend time on social media networks, in what ways can these networks be leveraged to engage and build a foundation for future student learning? While the potential of distraction is there, the right social media teaching strategies can lead to creative learning, and a productive approach to making social media part of ongoing professional development.

'Quality Assurance of Online and Distance Learning' edited by Rocco Paolucci

A CreateSpace book on Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/Quality-Assurance-Online-Distance-Learning/dp/1470035340/ref=pd_zg_rss_ts_b_266133_9?ie=UTF8&amp;amp;amp;tag=html30-20&amp;amp;amp;utm_source=dlvr.it&amp;amp;amp;utm_medium=twitter

 

Book description

 

With the prevalence of digital technologies and the Internet, online and distance learning programs are rapidly expanding. Institutions of higher learning that offer online programs are facing the challenges of increasing student enrollments, growing global opportunities, implementing new technologies, responding to workplace demands, but at the same time maintaining quality. Many of these institutions are creating or adopting quality statements, standards, or criteria regarding their Web-based distance learning programs. However, there seems to be no common understanding about the terminology or the methodology of quality. Consequently, "quality assurance" of online and distance learning has become a subject of increasing importance in both researchers’ and practitioners’ communities. This book is a collection of recent research articles on quality assurance of online and distance learning from the perspective of major stakeholders: Administrators, Developers, Researchers, and Evaluators. Although much of this research differ in various aspects, when viewed together it begins to provide a more comprehensive and general framework of quality assurance, which can be applied in most organizational situations and programs.

[EU] Commission presents new Rethinking Education strategy

[EU] Commission presents new Rethinking Education strategy | On education | Scoop.it

"Digital learning and recent trends in Open Educational Resources (OER) are enabling fundamental changes in the education world, expanding the educational offer beyond its traditional formats and borders. New ways of learning, characterised by personalisation, engagement, use of digital media, collaboration, bottom-up practices and where the learner or teacher is a creator of learning content are emerging, facilitated by the exponential growth in OER available via the internet. Europe should exploit the potential of OER much more than is currently the case. This requires good computer skills, but some Member States are still lagging behind as seen in the Education and Training Monitor 2012, with 9 Member States with over 50% of 16-74 year olds with no or low computer skills. While the use of ICT in education and training has been high on the policy agenda, critical elements are not in place to enable digital learning and OER to be mainstreamed across all education and training sectors. A coherent strategy at EU level could address the scope, size and complexity of the challenges in support of actions of the Member States and the entire chain of stakeholders."
