Thank you Alan & Jennifer for your comments. I have watched the YouTube and think it was a great idea to link to Blloms taxonomy!! I look forward to investigating all this further and sharing it

Stop Blah, Blah eLearning! 5 Rules for Creating Relevant and Fluff-free Courses

Stop Blah, Blah eLearning! 5 Rules for Creating Relevant and Fluff-free Courses | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it

"We, instructional designers, know the feeling. We take copious notes when we interview the SME, and when we return to our desks, we are at a loss wondering what information to include in the course and what to toss out. Most of us end up squeezing into the course almost everything the SME had said. At other times, we read through the raw content, fall in love with a piece of data that is new to us and seems exciting, and cram it in the course. The result is an information-heavy eLearning course that overwhelms the learner but does not benefit him or elicit the response from him that you had desired. Information overload is a common pitfall that eLearning designers should be wary of.

"Human beings are more swayed by emotions than by a bunch of hard facts and cold statistics. Our favorite stories keep us hooked because they tug at our heart strings. We remember scenes from our favorite movies because as a rule, human beings remember emotionally-charged events better than the ones that just aim to appeal to our sense of logic."

When are we going to do away with these myths about Online Learning? 7 mistaken assumptions

When are we going to do away with these myths about Online Learning? 7 mistaken assumptions | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it
Over the last 15 years, online learning has become a vital part of the American educational system. Thanks to the online offerings from some of the country’s top colleges and universities, students have access to programs and education that they may not have otherwise — and students have responded positively in droves.

Nearly one third of all students in higher education have taken courses via the Internet. That’s more than 6 million people, ranging from students who take a single class to those who have earned their entire degree without setting foot in a traditional classroom.

Despite online learning’s popularity, though, there are still some who question the value of online education. There’s still a perception in some circles that online learning is somehow “less than” taking classes in on campus, and that the education isn’t as rigorous as it could be. Online learning can be as rigorous (sometimes even more so) and as in-person learning, and while it is certainly different, this doesn’t mean it can’t work well.

The quality of instruction or lack thereof, is just one of the pervasive myths that surround online learning. If you are considering an online program to further your career, but aren’t sure, do not let these myths cloud your thinking.

Book: Using Evidence of Student Learning to Improve Higher Education (2015)

Dynamic changes are underway in American higher education. New providers, emerging technologies, cost concerns, student debt, and nagging doubts about quality all call out the need for institutions to show evidence of student learning. The scholars at NILOA present a reframed conception and approach to student learning outcomes assessment. The authors explain why it is counterproductive to view collecting and using evidence of student accomplishment as primarily a compliance activity. Today's circumstances demand a fresh and more strategic approach to the processes by which evidence about student learning is obtained and used to inform efforts to improve teaching, learning, and decision-making.

You have a Moleskin for your to-do lists. Or maybe you prefer an app. You probably get all (or most of) the items ticked off in the list. But what about the ones that you shouldn't be doing? It is as important not to do the wrong things—the ones that sap your energy needlessly or the time-wasters—as it is to do the right things. That is why, productivity champs ask you to take the Start/Stop/Continue road.

You know what to do; start doing them. Figure out what you are doing right; continue with it. But most importantly, STOP doing what is not serving you any purpose.

A future to be feared or a chimera? I say, the latter. The author presupposes that kids are seeking entertainment more than relationships. Possibly, but I think our nature as social beings, needing the immediacy of human interaction, is real. Further, what student (often overlooked as an independent player in many debates on education) is going to sit still in a room with 50 students and a monitor, looking forward to only to a life of near-servitude to the fraction of the population defined as the "haves" as an end result of their "education"?

Why haven't education reform efforts amounted to much? Because they start with the wrong problem, says John Abbott, director of the 21st Century Learning Initiative. Overhauling the educational paradigm means replacing the metaphor — the concept of the world and its inhabitants as machine-like entities — that has shaped the education system, as well as many other aspects of our culture.

The article points out hard truths. One is about training/indoctrinating students as consumers. It is similar to the thinking Bernard Stiegler, Gert Biesta, Bill Pinar, etc. have argued in various ways about schooling.

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, April 5, 2:13 PM

Overhauling the educational paradigm means replacing the metaphor - the concept of the world and its inhabitants as machine-like entities - John Abbott. Changing schools may mean making adults uncomfortable with the way they fit within in the system and their role in the process of learning. It's no longer a delivery system - it's a change system.
