Shouldn't lectures be obsolete by now?

Shouldn't lectures be obsolete by now? | Rossleigh Brisbane | Scoop.it
Why would you want to sit through someone telling you something, when so much more information is available at your fingertips whenever you want it?

But when you look at some online courses, instead of revolutionising higher education, they have often simply transported the classic lecture format to an internet audience.

What's Next for Maker Education (EdSurge Guides)

What's Next for Maker Education (EdSurge Guides) | Rossleigh Brisbane | Scoop.it

"Confession: We at EdSurge are a bit in love with what may be America’s favorite new pastime: making. Indeed, it’s been a busy two years since we published our first guide on making, during which makerspaces have spread into classrooms and curriculum far and wide. But for many, issues of budget and buy-in mean maker education is still far from mainstream. 


 To be sure, there have been changes in the Maker movement in the decade-plus since the first Maker Faires wooed a new generation of DIYers. Along the way, we’ve celebrated successes and asked hard questions. How can we help making become more equitable and inclusive? How can maker ed embrace traditional technology, including computer science? What are the benefits of a maker education, and how do we measure them? In this guide, we hope you’ll find answers to—or at least ideas about—these and other questions that explore the meaning of making."

5 Better Ways To Say 'I Don't Know' In The Classroom

5 Better Ways To Say 'I Don't Know' In The Classroom | Rossleigh Brisbane | Scoop.it
Do you allow students to answer a question with the response "I don't know" in the classroom? Perhaps you should consider no longer allowing that phrase and instead offering up these five other ways that might get students thinking a bit more.

How often do you hear a student say "I don't know." Here are five alternative suggestions that you might offer up to your students. Why? If we want our students to become critical thinkers they need to be able to ask questions. Rather than accepting the answer "I don't know" have the student think a bit more and come up with a better question. Click through to the post to see three additional questions and share your own if you have other suggestions.

All Roads Lead to Code - EduTech4Teachers

All Roads Lead to Code - EduTech4Teachers | Rossleigh Brisbane | Scoop.it
So, why just use technology, when you can build it, right? But first—students need the programming know-how in order to do so… And that begins with you!

Whether you choose to embrace the concept or not, it’s becoming more and more important to equip students with coding skills. It’s the new literacy for a generation of students growing up in a digitally-connected world. Having this knowledge not only strengthens general skills such as critical thinking and problem solving, but it will become invaluable in their future as a wide range of industries are eager to hire individuals with programming abilities.

50 Apps That Represent 50 New Ways To Learn

50 Apps That Represent 50 New Ways To Learn | Rossleigh Brisbane | Scoop.it
Modern learning is in a state of flux as it struggles to find out what it wants to become.

Schools continue to merely “add on” learning, while technology strongly suggests new possibilities for inside and beyond the classroom. From learning simulations and mobile learning, to adaptive apps, flipped classrooms, and self-directed learning through amazing digital channels, the possibilities for learning are almost overwhelming.

Below we’ve gathered a diverse list of learning apps across iOS and Android from giants like Google, Apple, Microsoft, as well as upstarts like Brainfeed, The Sandbox, and Knowji. None of the apps are perfect, but each app does something special, and in that talent represents what’s possible as we careen towards 2020 and beyond.

Self-publishing: the Road to Independence

Self-publishing: the Road to Independence | Rossleigh Brisbane | Scoop.it
Major publishers are still churning out the same old books; lots of glossy covers and sales talk, but it’s the same kind of material. It is difficult for new talent to get published – safe names sell books, conferences, and webinars. The market, the students and the teachers are all crying out for change. Independent self-published authors are edging in and offering a much different menu. Nik Peachey, Phil Wade, Jorge Sette – just to name just a few – are a new breed of innovative independents with a fresh approach.
