Simon Spykerman's curator insight, February 14, 2013 5:57 PM

Video really adds a lot to e-learning courses.  

 

Videos we produced for Clark College Corporate and Continuing Education online courses have been really well received by students.   They are not only able to demonstrate visually things that can't be shown well with text, but can form great discussion starters as in the case of the medical dramas we made that show how "not" to do it.

Nik's Learning Technology Blog: Online Teacher Development Works Best - 15 Reasons Why

Nik's Learning Technology Blog: Online Teacher Development Works Best - 15 Reasons Why | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

I've started this article with quite a bold statement, but it's a conclusion that I have been coming too over the course of quite a few years now. I should really put this into context though, as most of the teacher training I do deals with pedagogical training for the use of technology and is most often delivered during intensive face to face sessions, usually with groups of teachers working in a computer lab. Though, having said that, I do still believe that many of the reasons I have listed below do also apply to other kinds of more 'mainstream' teacher development too, especially intensive courses.

Five Tips for New Teachers to Become Connected Educators | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

While the idea of being or becoming a connected educator is important, as a new teacher, this may seem completely overwhelming.

These sites are packed with wonderful information, truly enough to get the head of a new teacher spinning!

Two Contrasting Views of Educational Technology

Two Contrasting Views of Educational Technology | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

The final thing that strikes me about these two videos is how they reflect the kinds of societies that the system of education seeks to create. For me the first is a society of obedient unquestioning worker drones being spoon fed information that will enable them to fulfil their predefined roles. The second is a society in which individuals are encouraged to think, act and explore, to question and to create. I know which I would prefer to live in.

Concept Map Assessments

Concept Map Assessments | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

Concept map was developed by Joseph Novak based on the cognitive theories of David Ausubel (Assimilation Theory) who stressed the importance of prior knowledge in order to gain deep learning on new concepts. So by understanding what you already knew, and relating new concepts to what you knew, meaningful deep learning can easily occur.
