Channylt's curator insight, April 7, 7:56 AM

Great tips on how to facilitate collaborative learning. Learners that work collaborativley are engaged in their learning and have better learning outcomes. 

Marina Cousins's curator insight, April 10, 5:06 PM

I liked this article, as it highlighted to me the importance of collaborative learning is much better than individual learning.  As I have mentioned several times, the learning and assessment that takes place within my workplace has a strong behaviourist foundation of learning and repeating key words and actions to pass an assessment (it is a very individual approach to learning).

 

Many of my colleagues view this experience of learning & assessment in a negative way.  What are some of the ways to overcome this negative view of learning?

 

After reading this article, I will seriously consider using a collaborative learning style within my workplace (if I get the opportunity).  The advantage of using real world problems or clinical incidents is that it offers the learner the opportunitity to improve their critical thinking skills and problem-solving ability.  

 

Therefore, by using collaborative learning you can apply the following learning theories of cognitivism, constructivism, objectivism.

Hazel Kuveya's curator insight, April 10, 6:22 PM

Keeping the groups at moderate levels will ensure an effective exchange of ideas and participation in all involved, I can echo the same statement that two heads are better than one. It is also interesting to learn that collaborative teams attain higher level thinking and preserve information for longer periods as compared to  their individual counterparts., yes the use of technology makes collaborative learning manageable.

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 | Professional Communication | 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.

Forecast 2020: Web 3.0+ and Collective Intelligence

Forecast 2020: Web 3.0+ and Collective Intelligence | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

"Let’s focus on the resulting element — the “collective intelligence”. Think about it as billions of human brains working using future super computers as a platform. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor Srini Devadas described “collective intelligence” as consisting of two pillars: cloud computing and crowd computing. Cloud computing is using the Internet as a platform and making access to information available to everyone. Crowd computing, according to him, involves the analysis of information into “collective intelligence” far beyond what we have today."

Why Khan Academy Is The Wrong Answer

Why Khan Academy Is The Wrong Answer | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

..."However, the weak link in our current learning paradigm isn’t content delivery. Traditional textbooks deliver content efficiently and effectively, and access to content is cheaper and easier than at any other time in history thanks to the internet. It’s only with the guidance of a skilled teacher and interaction with other learners that content becomes relevant and engaging. That’s what makes good teaching important. Future education is better served by investing in and developing tools that support discussion and interaction, not improving content delivery."...

In education there as many questions and answers as there are children. Kahn Academy is not the wrong answer. Neither is it the right answer. It is ONE answer to the question: How can we increase access to content and information for students and adults who want to learn?

It's Time to Rethink Study Abroad - WorldWise - The Chronicle of Higher Education

It's Time to Rethink Study Abroad - WorldWise - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

For the folks who have been fervently trying over the past decade to persuade more—if not most—undergraduates to study abroad, the almost flat change in participation from 2009-10 to 2010-11, as found in the latest “Open Doors” report, probably didn’t inspire much of a celebration. After several years of more-substantial growth, “Open Doors” reported a measly increase of about 3,000 students, just over 1 percent.

Commenting on the lack of growth, Peggy Blumenthal, senior counsel at the Institute of International Education, which produced the report, said: “We’re going to have to find other ways to internationalize the thinking of Americans if we’re not going to get them all abroad.”

Instant Opinion Polls in the Classroom

Instant Opinion Polls in the Classroom | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

For a long time now I have been looking for a tool that enables instant polling in the classroom or in the lecture room. I specifically wanted something that; doesn't require registration (especially from the people I'm polling), updates very quickly, works on any platform from computers to mobile devices

It looks like I have finally found what I've been looking for and best of all it's free. The tool that I have found is Mentimeter and it does all of the above.
