New Phytologist: Meetings - A snapshot of molecular plant–microbe interaction research (2014) | self-directed_learning | Scoop.it

Plants and microbes are in a continuous arms race to maintain their predominance within their particular niche. Understanding the complexity of these plant–microbe interactions is of utmost importance as it can provide new insights into the mechanisms mediating disease processes and in turn inspire new plant breeding strategies. The International Society for Molecular Plant–Microbe Interactions (IS-MPMI) invited scientists from around the world to share their findings during the XVI International Congress on Molecular Plant–Microbe Interactions, which was held on the beautiful island of Rhodes in Greece. The congress was organized by the Agricultural University of Athens, the Hellenic Phytopathology Society, and the Hellenic Society of Phytiatry and provided over 1100 participants from 55 countries with the opportunity to present and discuss their current and future research. A great number of talks and posters were presented, however our aim within this report is to provide a snapshot of the discipline by focusing on just some of the exciting research and discussions which took place. The key topics discussed were virulence factors, epigenetic regulation, hormones, symbiosis factors, toxins, signaling pathways, microbe recognition, immunity, and pathogen diagnostics. Effector biology was also a recurrent theme in many plenary and concurrent sessions, indicating the importance of a topic that was also highlighted recently by a Virtual Special Issue in New Phytologist (see Kuhn & Panstruga, 2014). In addition to this, throughout the meeting next generation sequencing (NGS) techniques were described and shown to be shedding new light on long-standing issues in microbial ecology.

How-To: Link Google Forms to QR Codes -ClassTechTips.com | self-directed_learning | Scoop.it

I’ve shared some of the reasons that I love Google Forms, including how they can be used to collect assessment data.  Google Forms can also be used for students to turn in information.  They might fill out a Google Form to submit a book recommendation, request extra help, or to complete an interest survey.

Google Forms have very long web addresses and it would be unreasonable to expect students to type in the whole thing correctly.  You can make the Google Form link smaller by using a URL shortener like bit.ly or goo.gl.  Another option is to connect the link to a QR code.  This way students can scan the QR code with an app like i-nigma on their mobile device and they’ll be taken directly to the Google Form.

George Siemens: Dual Layer Mooc? Interesting Spin.

George Siemens: Dual Layer Mooc? Interesting Spin. | self-directed_learning | Scoop.it
You recently launched the DALMOOC, which you created with a focus on improving the social experience of learners – can you tell me a bit about the structure and format you have chosen?

We call it a dual layer MOOC, but we don’t mean that in a binary sense, it’s more like saying there are two pathways to take. You can either take a structured pathway – the way that you see with a lot of MOOCs that are run, say, on Cousera or edX – and that’s a heavy teacher focus with guidance. As in, you click through to the next level.

We’ve created a second level that we’re calling more of the ‘social layer’ and we’re basically asking students to engage with one another and to create artefacts that reflect their understanding and to share those artefacts.

In the learning process we need different cycles of scaffolding – there are times when you come across a new idea completely and you can’t really create and socialise around it effectively because you just don’t know anything. So, there may be a cycle by which the learner follows a traditional structure or pathway but as soon as they become more confident they move into social and more emerging formats. In a way they’re oscillating between these two elements of the MOOC: structure and linear versus emergent and social.

Terrific Mini Guide to Help Students Think Critically ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Terrific Mini Guide to Help Students Think Critically ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | self-directed_learning | Scoop.it
Questioning is the key to critical thinking and through questions students get to explore the deep layers of meanings that would otherwise go unnoticed. Of course not all questions have this analytical ability. For instance, closed questions tend to limit the thinking choices available for students. The same with questions that promote factual recalling. Questions that emphasize the mechanical on the analytical are out of the list.

In today's post, I am sharing with you this mini guide created by Foundation of Critical Thinking which you can use with your students to help them better comprehend and apply critical thinking in their learning.

Ten Ideas To Move Classroom Technology Closer To Blended Learning ~ 21st Educational Technology and Learning

Ten Ideas To Move Classroom Technology Closer To Blended Learning ~ 21st Educational Technology and Learning | self-directed_learning | Scoop.it

by Michael Gorman


"As we employ the 1 to 1 experience, we need to ask two important questions. Is the 1 to 1 and the device about using technology, or is it about a more meaningful and engaging learning experience? Spending a day online for individual research can be a wonderful simple integration of technology experience, but might not be a true blended learning opportunity. Asking students to research and then collaborate with each other online in a collective experience takes this integration and provides more of a blended experience.

"The blended learning experience allows technology and the online experience to breakdown the traditional classroom allowing important transformation. One might wonder where on the spectrum of simple integration to blending learning a possible learning activity might be. I would like to share a lens of ten ideas that educators may wish to look at as they reflect on their 1 to 1 activity and classroom learning experiences that use technology . Sometimes it is just a simple tweak to bring out the wonderful possibilities of blended learning. Please feel free to read my ideas below that might allow you to use classroom technology to bring out a richer and blended learning experience."

Beyond Self-Teaching Online: Using the Threaded Discussion in Distance Education by Clarence J. Bouchat : Learning Solutions Magazine

Beyond Self-Teaching Online: Using the Threaded Discussion in Distance Education  by Clarence   J. Bouchat : Learning Solutions Magazine | self-directed_learning | Scoop.it

Although there are many documented advantages of learning online, some educators still question this innovative way of teaching because of technical obstacles, because they suspect or doubt its effectiveness, or because they are unfamiliar with the approach. Indeed, the teaching considerations for an online course, versus a traditional in-residence-based course, do change by necessity because of the different learning environments.


Making traditional course material digital, converting lectures to streaming video, and assigning tests or writing assignments online are not enough to convert the full classroom experience into avirtual one.


What is lacking in the virtual setting is the dynamic interchange among students and instructors. Although their concerns are valid, in-residence educators should find solace in learning that one of the most fundamental forms of teaching, the student-peer discussion facilitated by a knowledgeable instructor, remains as valid for mature-student distance learning today as it was for Socrates. This venerable method remains effective for online students for the same reasons it works in the classroom — because the discourse among students actually builds knowledge and keeps learning focused on their needs. Online, this Socratic method of teaching, also known as a “threaded discussion” or a “forum,” is an excellent distancelearning tool. All online instructors should consider using this method.

Bibhya Sharma's insight:

I agree that threaded discussions bring in the online interactions and exchange of knowledge. The danger is when such threads are not directed by the mentors or facilitators, the discussions can easily wander off to personal and sometime unnecessary issues.
