What is the flipped classroom?

What is the flipped classroom? | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

One of the more discussed topics at the University of Northampton at present is the idea of the ‘flipped classroom’ or of students engaging in ‘flipped learning’. A major reason why this is being discussed now is that use of the flipped classroom could well be a major feature of the University’s new Waterside campus1, however this is not the only (nor even the best) reason for interest in this subject. As will undoubtedly be clear, the best reason for adopting a flipped learning approach to teaching and learning is that it offers pedagogical advantages, and we will certainly look at some of the evidence in favour of flipped learning in a later blog post.

While writing out your next academic paper, you look online for various images which are appropriate for what you're talking about. Once you find something you like, you simply copy and paste it because, hey, who's stopping you?

What Faculty Should Know About Adaptive Learning - M Feldstein

What Faculty Should Know About Adaptive Learning - M Feldstein | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

I was honored to be asked by the American Federation of Teachers to write an article on what their membership should know about adaptive learning technologies....

 

The phrase “adaptive learning” is an umbrella term that applies to an incredibly broad range of technologies and techniques with very different educational applications. The common thread is that they all involve software that observes some aspect of student performance and adjusts what it presents to each student based on those observations. In other words, all adaptive software tries to mimic some aspect of what a good teacher does, given that every student has individual needs.

What is Deeper Learning? | Innovation Excellence

What is Deeper Learning? | Innovation Excellence | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

We here at Innovation Excellence are passionate about innovation AND education, because it is not just companies that need to innovate, but countries too.

And the countries that do the best job of educating the next generation of innovators will be the ones that will live at the top of the food chain and reap the monetary and societal benefits.

So, we keep our eyes on what is going on in the educational space and try to share with you things that we find interesting now or for the future.

This week we came across a discussion about deeper learning.

What is Deeper Learning?

Have a look at this video to find out more:

From the Deeper Learning Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) web site, you can think about Deeper Learning being:

* Master core academic content

* Think critically and solve complex problems

* Work collaboratively

* Communicate effectively

* Learn how to learn (e.g., self-directed learning)

* Academic mindsets

 

The Deeper Learning MOOC will launch this week.
