5 Minute CPD: Post-it Plus - Educate 1-to-1

5 Minute CPD: Post-it Plus - Educate 1-to-1 | Pedagogy in HigherEd | Scoop.it
There are few staples of the classroom more recognisable than the Post-it note. Used in a plethora of ways to engage students and capture learning, I can’t think of many teachers who wouldn’t, at some point in their career, have tried out the Post-it to see what it could offer them.
The Post-it Plus app takes that most beloved of classroom accessory and gives it a digital edge.
In the video below, I explain why you should give it a try for yourself.

Formative assessment is an important tool teachers can use to target students' learning needs. When teachers know what students know (or don't know), they can better adjust their teaching to meet the kids right at their level. These digital formative assessment tools can help you do the job.

Howard Gardner, creator of ‘multiple intelligences’ theory, launches new project on ‘good’ education

Howard Gardner, creator of ‘multiple intelligences’ theory, launches new project on ‘good’ education | Pedagogy in HigherEd | Scoop.it
Armed with a set of criteria drawn from different disciplines, I identified seven separate intelligences. All human beings possess these seven intelligences, but we differ from one another in which are strong; and in any case, strength or weakness in one (say spatial intelligence) does not predict strength or weakness in another (say, interpersonal or musical intelligence).

 

I would now add a few more intelligences to the list, and others, most famously Daniel Goleman, have proposed yet other intelligences like emotional intelligence. I am no longer invested in my particular set of intelligences. For me, the important advance is that a multiplicity of intelligences has been acknowledged—wits, rather than wit.

 

In this era of succinct messaging, I’ve created a twitter-short formula: Multiple Wits and Good Grits Lead to a Success Beyond Selfies.

Research: How Video Production Affects Student Engagement

edX recently commissioned a study of nearly 1,000 videos, segmenting them out by by video type and production style, and discovered this among their other findings:

Shorter videos are more engaging. Engagement drops after 6 minutes.Videos with a more personal feeling are more effective than high-fidelity studio recordings.
Videos in which the instructor speaks quickly and with high enthusiasm are more engaging.Khan-style tablet drawings are more engaging than power point slides.

Yesterday I posted the top choices from the American Association of School LIbrarians (AASL) on the best apps for 2014. Today they listed the top websites in the following categories:

* Media Sharing

* Digital Stories

* Manage & Organize

* Social Networking & Communication

* Content Resources

* Curriculum Collaboration

As you review the websites you will find one or more standards that are addressed by the websites.

Although I know many of the websites, there are some that are new to me that I look forward to exploring. Below are several that I have used and really like, or are ones I have checked out and will be using in the future.

Are you looking for new tools and want ideas on how to use them as well as examples and links to learn more about the tool. Check out Remix-t, a site from the University of Notre Dame, that is chock full of great ideas and resources. Although this site is geared to college teachers the resources and examples will provide you with great ideas and you will be able to modify them for your classroom. You will find in under Content Resources.

Mixed Ink is a new site to me. It allows you to create a group of students who will write together. They may comment and evaluate the submissions and each students' writing will show up in a different color. This looks like  a great site, esp. for schools that are not using Google apps.

There are many more that I will be exploring. Do you have a favorite website? Share them in the comment section and let us know why it is a favorite of yours.

Using Self-Determination Theory to Improve Online Learner Motivation

Using Self-Determination Theory to Improve Online Learner Motivation | Pedagogy in HigherEd | Scoop.it
According to self-determination theory, a theory developed by Deci and Ryan, three basic psychological needs affect motivation: autonomy, competence, and relatedness. Susan Epps, associate professor of Allied Health Sciences, and Alison Barton, associate professor of Teaching and Learning, both at East Tennessee State University, have used this theory to develop ways to improve online learner motivation.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas
more...
Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, May 17, 2014 11:07 AM

"Creating a sense of autonomy helps students make choices that emphasize what they value, which can increase the subjective value of the learning—the sense that the learning is relevant to one’s life, Barton says.



Here are some ways to offer students choices:

  • Content—Barton has her students, who are preservice teachers, facilitate online discussions about lesson plans that each student develops. Each student gets to decide what the lesson will be, which content from the module to include, and which theories to demonstrate. “That, I hope, makes it more of a motivating experience for them because they’re writing a lesson about something they want to write about,” Barton says.
  • Format—In some instances Epps gives her students choices on assignment format such as a paper or a narrated PowerPoint presentation. “When they feel they’re choosing something that is relevant to them, they actually do better work,” Epps says.
  • Grade weighting—In the past, Barton has offered students options on how much various assignments, quizzes, and tests will count toward the final grade. “If they’re not great test takers, you may offer them an option where their assignments or final projects are given more weight,” she says."
