Education Administration Masters - Masters and PhDs

Education Administration Masters - Masters and PhDs | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

In the US, educational administration is often taken to include both management and leadership, whereas in the UK it is taken to be a separate activity – usually supportive of management and leadership. Education administration master’s degrees, (and variants such as education management master’s or educational leadership master’s) are designed for careers in elementary and secondary school administration, college administration, and educational supervision, management and leadership. Many colleges and universities offer these masters programs online. This page provides information on what is studied in these degrees and provides links to where you can study them online.

The e-textbook transformation

The e-textbook transformation | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

A new wave of e-textbooks is giving students more than just words and a few hotlinks on a digital page. Publishers over the last few years have been adding video, interactive maps and gamified quizzes designed to engage students more deeply in their learning.

“Think of it as making the textbook a hands-on activity,” says Andrew Miller, an ASCD faculty member and technology expert. “It’s making the content come to life in a way that meets the needs of different learners—auditory learners, visual leaders, text-based learners.”

The latest e-textbooks, developed by traditional publishers as well as new players like Discovery Education, are powered by a host of adaptive features, such as adjustable levels of difficulty and instant translation into other languages. And in some districts, teachers are using platforms like Apple’s iBooks to create their own digital course materials.

Blue Bronna Wilderness Camp - Photography Camp | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

  Join us for our first photography camp! Instructed by Brandie Sunley, this very basic photography course at Blue Bronna will be held from Friday evening, June 27, to Sunday afternoon on the 29th. We would love to have you join us!

 You will have the opportunity to spend the weekend riding horses, enjoying nature and learning how to make the most out of your DSLR camera.

 So, if you have a camera and don’t know how to use it, this is a great time to learn. If you have never rode a horse before, that’s ok, this is a great time to learn that also.

 

Come and experience a beautiful wilderness sanctuary. There is so much space out here to just enjoy, reflect, and disconnect from the daily pressures of life.

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning) | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."

* Visuals

* Questions

* Emotions

ePortfolios and Open Badges are only the first wave in what will emerge as a wider network-based form of assessment that makes tests and reviews unnecessary. In this talk I discuss work being done in network-based automated competency development and recognition, the challenges it presents to traditional institutions, and the opportunities created for genuinely autonomous open learning.
