Don’t Lecture Me: Rethinking How College Students Learn | MindShift

Don’t Lecture Me: Rethinking How College Students Learn | MindShift | (R)e-Learning | Scoop.it

At the star-studded Harvard Initiative on Learning and Teaching (HILT) event earlier this month, where professors gathered to discuss innovative strategies for learning and teaching, Harvard’s  professor Eric Mazur gave a talk on the benefits of practicing peer instruction in class, rather than the traditional lecture. The idea is getting traction. Here’s more about the practice.

A bit long article, but really interesting, because it starts from practice of teaching and real examples. 

Really good article.

Quanto costa veramente la privacy su internet?

Quanto costa veramente la privacy su internet? | (R)e-Learning | Scoop.it
Qual è il prezzo della privacy? Ce lo chiediamo in molti e nessuno riesce a fornire una risposta.

Un problema non da poco dato che la privacy sembra essere il bene di scambio per eccellenza nel mercato dei servizi Internet. Pensare che servizi comeFacebook e Gmail siano gratuiti per il semplice fatto che non richiedono unatransazione monetaria è una delle grandi ingenuità dei nostri tempi. “Sono gratis perché ti fanno vedere la pubblicità e quindi si ripagano in quel modo” obbiettano i più miopi tra gli ingenui, senza sapere che l'aspetto dell'advertising in sé è solo marginale nel modello di business di questi soggetti. La forza di questo modello non è tanto infilare dei banner pubblicitari nei siti (che a ben vedere è alla portata di tutti), quanto far apparire il banner giusto, alla persona giusta, nel momento giusto e nelle modalità giuste. E per fare ciò devi sapere davvero tante cose sui tuoi singoli utenti.

...

In questo scenario però si inseriscono alcuni casi in cui la libertà di scelta dell'utente è ancor più complessa e uno dei più mastodontici è tornato di recente agli onori della cronaca grazie a un'articolata email postata da Luciano Paccagnella (docente all’Università degli studi di Torino) nella lista di discussione del Centro Nexa di Torino. Il tema è quello della migrazione di molti atenei italiani dal loro vecchio sistema di posta elettronica a Gmail, aderendo all'offerta educational predisposta da Google specificamente per scuole e università. Paccagnella mette in luce tutte le principali note dolenti di questa scelta, estendendo e approfondendo quanto un paio di anni fa era già stato segnalato da Andrea Rossetti relativamente al caso Bicocca.

These might be helpful. It is important to note that rubrics were originally designed to guide learning and for assessment for learning rather than summative assessement.

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens - Edutopia

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens - Edutopia | (R)e-Learning | Scoop.it

"The rise of the Maker has been one of the most exciting educational trends of the past few years. A Maker is an individual who communicates, collaborates, tinkers, fixes, breaks, rebuilds, and constructs projects for the world around him or her. A Maker, re-cast into a classroom, has a name that we all love: a learner. A Maker, just like a true learner, values the process of making as much as the product. In the classroom, the act of Making is an avenue for a teacher to unlock the learning potential of her or his students in a way that represents many of the best practices of educational pedagogy. A Makerspace classroom has the potential to create life-long learners through exciting, real-world projects."

The Maker Movement will be a huge benefit to career preparedness in education through the implementation of Maker Clubs in K-12 and Maker Classes.  MakerSpaces in communities will serve to connect artisans of all types to education and industry.  For more on this "disruptive" movement check out this blog posting and related links. http://bit.ly/1me7ziK

Certo, non basta questa scarna definizione a dare conto della composizione che caratterizza, e ha caratterizzato, l’evento e l’importanza che questo ha significato, e significa, per i movimenti sociali e controculturali.

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice | (R)e-Learning | Scoop.it

Ibrar Bhatt writes: "Digital curation therefore is not just about finding relevant material, although that is a significant part of it, but is also about creating a specific and unique experience by utilising the resulting materials which then become contextualised within a new space. A curator, therefore, whether she is a journalist-by-proxy such as Popova or a student completing an assignment in a classroom, not only collects and interprets, but also creates a new experience with it. In this respect, curation is a process of problem solving, re-assembling,re-creating, and stewardship of other people’s writing."

"Like many competitors in the ed-tech sector, Google Play for Education appears to be trying to carve a niche for itself in the largely Apple-dominated marketplace. Allowing schools to split the costs of tablets by dividing the number they need by five will make a huge difference for those wanting to integrate tech into classrooms on a tight budget."
