European MOOCs

European MOOCs | Online Networked Learning | Scoop.it

Partners in 11 countries have joined forces to launch the first pan-European ‘MOOCs’ (Massive Open Online Courses) initiative, with the support of the European Commission. MOOCs are online university courses which enable people to access quality education without having to leave their homes. Around 40 courses, covering a wide variety of subjects, will be available free of charge and in 12 different languages. The initiative is led by the European Association of Distance Teaching Universities (EADTU) and mostly involves open universities. The partners are based in the following countries: France, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, UK, Russia, Turkey and Israel. Detailed information about the initiative and the courses on offer is available on the portal www.OpenupEd.eu.

Using Curation in Education

Using Curation in Education | Online Networked Learning | Scoop.it

"Students of all ages must be trained to search, select, qualify (and therefore disqualify), then enrich with their own thought, and then use and share information."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, January 22, 2013 10:36 PM

This is a great article that demonstrates the value of curation in education (especially using the platform scoop.it).  Students today must sort through an array of online sources today.  As a professor/curator, I see part of my role being to present students with vetted, quality online information.  I demonstrate this in part ot provide materials for my students, but even more so to teach my students how to assess materials for themselves as they become the curators of information in their own right.    

Emiel Mulder's curator insight, January 24, 2013 6:40 AM

Leerlingen moet leren welke bronnen bruikbaar zijn en welke niet. Daar wordt echter maar weinig aandacht aan besteed... Hoe kan dit beter?

The Three Most Time-Efficient Teaching Practices

The Three Most Time-Efficient Teaching Practices | Online Networked Learning | Scoop.it
We don’t measure productivity in academia in terms of hours logged. What are we gaining by the time spent? And are we finding the time we spend meaningful and rewarding?

Seth Dixon's curator insight, March 5, 2013 9:06 PM

This article from the National Teaching Forum gives some great advice for teachers.  Simply put, working more hours doesn't always get the job done (I am living proof of that).  Becoming more time-efficient is absolutely necessary and these are the three tips:


1. Begin with the end in mind.

2. Use rubrics.

3. Embed 'assessment' into assessments.

This is why I keep harping on educators to join Twitter--it's function let's it occupy a different ecological niche than Facebook.  This function is towards professional and personal interests, and not based on who you already know.  In other words, you can absolutely be a professional on Twitter and get a professional network that will help facilitate your growth.
