Learning Online is not a Spectator Sport: How to Make it Active

Learning Online is not a Spectator Sport: How to Make it Active | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it
Yet active learning in the virtual environment is no different than learning in face-to-face classrooms; we can apply the same definitions to online learning communities. The goal is to encourage students to dialog, write, think and evaluate no matter what learning environment the student occupies. If we consider Bloom’s Taxonomy of cognitive development, we want students to employ skills that go beyond the entry-level skills of knowledge and comprehension.

Great ideas for promoting active learning in the online environment.

There is online learning ... and then again there is online learning. This of course requires appropriate teacher:student loads. Why some training organisations will allow near to empty classrooms and then expect online facilitators to manage a virtual stadium is beyond me!

We know students love to use technology, so how about using technology as a tool to encourage higher order thinking? This post explores three ways you might choose to do this.

* Develop a digital tool kit. Go out and find some great tools that will help students use higher order thinking skills. Given them a test drive first, and then create a digital playlist and some digital guides to help students learn how to use them.

* Design flexible learning experiences. "Grab your toolkit, embrace Essential Questions, then build lessons around them." And for information on Essential Questions you may want to check out Chapter 1 of the book "Essential Questions: Opening Doors to Student Understanding from ASCD at http://www.ascd.org/publications/books/109004/chapters/What-Makes-a-Question-Essential¢.aspx.

* Get out of the way and let students create.
This post also provides a number of links to additional resources.
