K-12 Teaching in the 21st Century MOOC - Findings

K-12 Teaching in the 21st Century MOOC - Findings | STI2D English | Scoop.it

With support from partners around the United States as well as co-facilitators from various institutions and organizations, the MOOC was developed and implemented from a connectivist pedagogy. Participants were encouraged to act as both participants and leaders in a conversation about connected learning, personalization, collaboration, and reflection. The course was unique in the sense that its intended audience included K-12 students interested in teaching, preservice teachers, and inservice teachers. The goal of inviting such an audience was to facilitate a conversation that supported learning through collaborative professional development.

Traditional medicine: Environment change threatens indigenous know-how

Traditional medicine: Environment change threatens indigenous know-how | STI2D English | Scoop.it
Traditional medicine provides health care for more than half the world's population, but no one has really looked at how the environment affects traditional medicine. Studying 12 ethnic groups from Nepal biologists found that plant availability in the local environment has a stronger influence on the make-up of a culture's medicinal floras. This means that the environment plays a huge role in shaping traditional knowledge. This is very important, especially when you think of the risks that these cultures are already facing.

L'apprentissage inversé : avancée ou régression ? | flipped learning

L'apprentissage inversé : avancée ou régression ? | flipped learning | STI2D English | Scoop.it

Monica Mirza's curator insight, February 12, 2014 11:16 AM

Andrew Miller, spécialisé en technologies de l'éducation, rappelle cinq éléments à vérifier avant de mettre en place un dispositif d'apprentissage inversé :

1. un contenu attractif, donnant envie à l'élève de le regarder

2. des séquences de cours stimulantes, donnant envie d'apprendre.

3. s'assurer que tous les élèves pourront avoir accès aux contenus, techniquement parlant;

4. des séquences en classe fortement articulées avec les contenus visionnés à l'extérieur;

5. donc... disposer de temps et de lieux adéquats pour le faire.

A Wonderful Visual on How to Use SAMR Model On Different Classroom Tasks ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Wonderful Visual on How to Use SAMR Model On Different Classroom Tasks ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | STI2D English | Scoop.it

"In this quick post I want to share with you this beautiful interactive image on the SAMR model. I learned about this resource from a tweet shared by our colleague David Fife. As you can see from the image below, iPadders provided examples of how to use each classroom task according to the different SAMR categories. And in each category, a set of apps and tools are provided to help you carry out the task under study. I invite you to have a look and share with your colleagues. Enjoy"

Another example of SAMR model.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, February 23, 2014 6:23 PM

I've heard a lot about SMAR but never really taken the time to look into it. It might be time now that I'm looking at integrating more technology into my classroom. This model clearly supports technology and expects the use of it. 

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 27, 2014 6:42 PM

Explains a lot about how digital tech can help, though on investigation this seems to be a model developed seemingly from nowhere without much academic work behind it. Example of a simple model stating the obvious? Does it matter that it's origins are hazy? Having had the chance to look into it and its creator, it's interesting to note how popular it is and how accepted it is, without much critique. Is it really that great a model?! Just wondering! Raises a lot of questions.

Wonderful Visual on SAMR As A Framework for Education 3.0 ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Wonderful Visual on SAMR As A Framework for Education 3.0 ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | STI2D English | Scoop.it

"Proponents of the sociolinguistic perspective to the study of literacy ( e.g.Paul Gee, Collin Lanksheare, Michelle Knobel, Brian Street, to mention but a few ) view the developments of literacy and with it education as a direct result to the sophistication of the social and cultural aspect of human life. Some of them like Collin and Michelle associate the evolution of education to that of the web and hence the nomenclature education 1.0 (related web 1.0), education 2.0 ( related to web 2.0), and education (3.0 related to web 3.0). This association, however is not haphazard for there are many commonalities between each pair."
