Physical Spaces for Digital Learning

Physical Spaces for Digital Learning | Prendi eLearning - Education, Technology, iPads... | Scoop.it
Coordinator: Digital Learning for the Catholic Education Office of Western Australia. Passion for authentic integration of digital tools in the classroom. Lou is using Pinterest, an online pinboard to collect and share what inspires you.

Via Dr Peter Carey
Melissa Marshall's insight:

Thanks @careypeter as always for another good Pinterest Pinboard on the physical space involved in eLearning. 

 

I particularly like the idea of Workplaces (small group) We Places (All together) and Me Places (individual) in the physical learning space. If we can have somewhere for all three, that will really help our spaces to be used effectively.

5 Ways To Make Students Better At Sharing Online - Edudemic | Prendi eLearning - Education, Technology, iPads... | Scoop.it

“ There are a number of important tips for helping make students better at sharing online. From authenticity to slowing down, these are important.”


Via Dennis T OConnor, Edith Irizarry, Jenny Smith
Melissa Marshall's insight:

Slow down and give students time to respond online as you would if there was paper in front of them. It may take a little longer, but the discussion can be wonderful. Use forums in SEQTA at Prendiville to encourage sharing online - just to give students a different platform.

Melissa Marshall's insight:

Having fun playing with Verso today. Seems pretty easy to use - I am going to test it this week and see if students can access it easily! At least you can add instructions how you like, and it will tell you which students have not responded. Verso also allows kids to have more fluid conversations about what they are learning about, straight under the content. You get 3 free published 'flips' to begin with but you can make as many flips as you want.
