What it Means to Be in Your Element (with Sir Ken Robinson)

What it Means to Be in Your Element (with Sir Ken Robinson) | Digital Speak | Scoop.it
For many of us, adult life is an extension of middle school awkwardness, mitigated only by a cultivated apathy. Sir Ken Robinson says it doesn’t have to be that way.

Moving Outside the LMS: Matching Web 2.0 Tools to Instructional Purpose | EDUCAUSE.edu

Moving Outside the LMS: Matching Web 2.0 Tools to Instructional Purpose | EDUCAUSE.edu | Digital Speak | Scoop.it

ABSTRACT:

 

What considerations support the decision to either augment or replace an institution’s existing learning management system (LMS) with a cloud-based, Web 2.0 technology tool to support students’ learning? The use of instructional technologies should be evaluated against a backdrop of pedagogical objectives, and students’ selection of tools to support their learning can result in a more collaborative, constructive, and authentic learning experience. Instructors must balance the benefit of introducing new technology tools into the curriculum with the additional load—for instructors (supporting the tool) and students (learning the tool).This paper describes the experiences of an online graduate program in instructional technology at Georgia Southern University (GSU) and the program faculty who have chosen to move beyond the LMS.

We do need to encourage creativity in our students. They learn so much more when they handle the content to do something with it.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, June 2, 2013 5:25 AM

"Confidence that a 'one size fits all' global economy and that the 'Western canon' of knowledge are sufficient to see humanity through the next phase of its transformations and adjustments has diminished dramatically over the past years.

We have an economic system that is certainly not a tide that floats all boats. We have challenges to the dominance of traditional knowledge claims as well. What does this mean for higher education, for social responsibility and for the way forward?"

Impact of Open Educational Resources on Online Learning - Inside Online Schools | Digital Speak | Scoop.it

"Open Educational Resources (OER) have created opportunities for people to learn things they may never have dreamed possible.  Access to educational materials has become available through online sites across the globe.  Many people may be familiar with the term “open source” as it applies to how computer programmers have shared information.  However, the term “OER” may be less familiar."

Narrated Slideshow – Screencast Tool Comparison

Narrated Slideshow – Screencast Tool Comparison | Digital Speak | Scoop.it

A screencast is a digital recording of a computer screen with audio narration. Screencasts can include telestrator (‘John Madden pen’) annotations. Narrated slideshows include audio recordings synchronized to images without hand-drawn annotations.

Screencasts and narrated slideshows can be created with two kinds of tools:

1. Browser-based: Create an account on the website and use a modern web browser like Google Chrome or FireFox to record, save and share it.

2. Client-based: Download and install software on a computing device to record and save.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 10, 2013 12:53 AM

Howtoons are cartoons showing kids of all ages "How To" build things. Each illustrated episode is a stand-alone fun adventure accessible to all. Our Howtoons are designed to encourage children to be active participants in discovering the world through Play-that-Matters -- fun, creative, and inventive -- and to rely a lot less on mass-consumable entertainment.

Paula Correia's curator insight, April 19, 2013 7:57 AM

"Howtoons são cartoons que mostram às crianças de todas as idades "como" se constroem coisas. Cada episódio ilustrado é uma aventura acessível a todos. Os Howtoons são projetados para encorajar as crianças a serem participantes ativos na descoberta do mundo através do jogo - divertido, criativo e inventivo - e a confiar muito menos no entretenimento consumível das massas".
