Major Players in the MOOC Universe | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it

Millions of students have signed up for massive open online courses, and hundreds of universities are offering some form of Web-based curriculum. Most students aren’t paying much for these classes, if they’re paying anything at all. So where is all that knowledge—and all the cash—coming from? Explore connections among the major players.

Successful Leaders Know What Made Them Who They Are

Successful Leaders Know What Made Them Who They Are | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it

As chairman of the Washington Speakers Bureau, Bernie Swain posed one simple question to 100 of the eminent people that his company represents. People like Madeleine Albright, Tom Brokaw, Colin Powell, Terry Bradshaw and Condoleezza Rice were asked to identify the one person, event, or influence that made them who they are as a leader and a person.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, September 7, 3:35 PM

The overriding lessons from Bernie Swain's questioning is that successful leaders are self-aware. They have an inner voice and pay attention to it. They understand the defining moments of their lives and thereby better understand their own strengths, biases, and weaknesses as leaders.

Colleges are increasingly using adaptive technology in large online or blended courses to help students learn at their own pace. But while these solutions make learning more efficient, they’re perpetuating an outdated form of learning, Siemens says.

You can purchase the very best learning technology, steeped in the deepest education research. It doesn’t matter. If you don’t implement the tools effectively, and in the context of clear academic goals, all the tools in the world simply won’t make a lick of difference in the lives of students.

Banning and unbanning phones in schools

Banning and unbanning phones in schools | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it
When it comes to mobile phones and the education sector, things aren't so simple, and answers vary considerably by place -- and are changing. In some countries and schools, mobile phones are not allowed at all for students (and in some cases for teachers as well) and/or their use is limited to certain circumstances inside (and in some instances even outside) of school. In other places, phones are allowed with few restrictions. In yet other places, long time bans on phones are being reversed. Even where bans are in place, phones are still to be found in schools, for better and for worse, and they are used for a variety of purposes (again, for better and for worse).

Mobile Phone use in schools an interesting discussion
Justin Morgan's curator insight, May 16, 4:53 PM

The use of cell phones in schools has been a major controversy in the past years. When I was in high school, approximately 4 years ago, cell phones were not permitted. Times have changed. People rely on this technological device for so many things. Cell phones allow children and parents to stay in touch, especially in the case of an emergency. I think they are very important. It is understandable that people feel otherwise. Cell phones can be extremely distracting in a learning environment. I feel that the positive aspects of allowing cell phones in school outweigh the negatives. This article was one that I was truly able to relate to. At this point in our technological world, cell phones are a part of our every day lives and I feel it’s wrong for schools to permit them.

Turtle projects are infrastructure projects that improve bandwidth in schools, the Open University, Janet & SuperJanet, Wikipedia, Khan Academy, YouTube, MOOCs. Moodle… I could go on all day. None of these initiatives are device-focused. They focus on cognitive ergonomics not consumer electronics. Lesson here – stop the largely wasted research on device-based projects, the endless stream of apps and do not keep on taking (and buying) the tablets. Think about learning and learners not devices.

Some useful suggestions and links to more materials.

Danielarv's curator insight, September 16, 4:06 PM
This article provides 9 techniques which can help improve knowledge retention in eLearning course. The first technique is doing an audience research in which you know about learner preferences, goals, and preexisting knowledge. Subsequently, you need to incorporate optional self-assessments in order that online learners check their own progress. Next, you can provide to your learners a microlearning online library gathers all of your bite-size eLearning in one place so that online learners can get in, get out, and get back to business. Additionally, you can provide to learners, visual summaries such as graphics, mind maps and infographics due to the fact that the human brain remembers images more effectively than text. Furthermore, the use of games in eLearning course can significantly improve knowledge retention. Also, another technique is the spaced repetition which improves knowledge assimilation by preventing cognitive overload. One of the most important techniques is the creation of mobile learning content in which online learners will actively engage with the eLearning content. At the same time, learner-generated eLearning content is an important technique which gives online learners the chance to refresh their memory and actively recall the information. Finally, the use of online forums to facilitate the online collaboration process allows that learners improve long-term retention. These knowledge retention techniques allow that online learners achieve their learning goals.
Darlyn Nicole Ortega Aroca's curator insight, September 17, 4:57 PM
These kind of articles are very useful for teachers who use virtual teaching tools, in this article we can find some suggestions that may help students to have better concentration when they are developing their tasks. Also, when a student performs his/her tasks using technological tools is exposed to many distraction, and if this kind of distractions are not properly used could become disadvantages for virtual learning process.
