Steve Wozniak Wants 'Human Computer' to Tutor Kids

Steve Wozniak Wants 'Human Computer' to Tutor Kids | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak said at a conference this week in Northern Ireland the future could allow each student to have a personalized "human computer" to serve as a school and career tutor.

According to the Belfast Telegraph, Wozniak told attendees at the Londonderry's Millennium Forum for the European Business Network the concept would facilitate one-on-one teaching and encourage students to take action — such as write a book — rather than focus on studying tested ideas.

5 steps to using self-assessment in the classroom

5 steps to using self-assessment in the classroom | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Student: ‘Teacher, am I going to pass this course?’

Me: ‘What do you think? Do you have any thoughts about your performance so far?’

Implementing some kind of self-assessment is a very good thing, as it enables learners to judge the quality of their work. I’ve done this on an ad-hoc basis at times in the past, but using a formal instrument or procedure can work wonders, even if it has no official bearing on the final outcome. According to ‘Student Self-Evaluation: What Research Says and What Practice Shows’, an excellent article by Carol Rolheiser and John A. Rosself I uncovered while thinking about this subject, understanding how to use such tools will help you incorporate self-assessments into your learners’ learning process and enhance their understanding of they are doing. Here are 5 steps to bringing self-assessment into your classes.

Doctors online: learning using an internet based content management system

Doctors online: learning using an internet based content management system | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

 Author: Darren Pullen, University of Tasmania, Australia

 

Abstract
The past century has seen spectacular gains in the breadth and depth of medical knowledge, but the potential of these gains has been hampered by a slow system of disseminating knowledge. Over the course of medical education numerous technologies and methods have been used to deliver continuing medical education (CME) to health care professionals (HCPs). These methods have included postal correspondence, two-way radio conferencing, video conferencing and in the last decade the Internet. The emergence of the World Wide Web (WWW) in the early 1990s, coupled with increasing computer processing power, reduced computing costs and more creative content management systems have led to more CME materials and resources going 'online' which has greatly sped up the dissemination of medical knowledge. This study assessed the pedagogical and instructional design (e-pedagogy) effectiveness of online CME courses offered by one large Australasian continuing education provider.

Promoting Autism Research in Schools

Promoting Autism Research in Schools | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The frustration is a familiar one in autism research: A new behavioral therapy works great when study participants come into a laboratory or academic clinic. Not so well in classrooms where teachers and therapists try to put the intervention into action.

In 2011, Autism Speaks organized a special session of the International Meeting for Autism Research to explore the gap between research and application in real-world classrooms. From this meeting came this month’s special issue of the journal Autism: “School-based Research on Autism Spectrum Disorders.” Autism Speaks sponsored the issue’s publication.

Technological, Pedagogical and Content Knowledge

Technological, Pedagogical and Content Knowledge | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The Technology, Pedagogy and Content Knowledge model or TPACK for short has been around for some time. It builds upon the work of Lee Shulman and extends his idea of Pedagogical Content Knowledge. Matthew Koehler and Punya Mishra expand upon this in much more detail on their site http://tpack.org and on the site there are lot of links to other scholarly articles related to this topic.

In my work, I’ve been trying to apply these three things in order to bring about use of technology in lessons that doesn’t dictate that technology is at the heart of everything we do but there as something which will enhance the PCK (Pedagogical Content Knowledge) based learning that is happening.

Bill Gates: Teachers need real feedback

Until recently, many teachers only got one word of feedback a year: "satisfactory." And with no feedback, no coaching, there's just no way to improve. Bill Gates suggests that even great teachers can get better with smart feedback -- and lays out a program from his foundation to bring it to every classroom.

Should university students use Wikipedia?

Should university students use Wikipedia? | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Most academics look down on the open source encyclopedia, but does it really hinder students' studies?

Despite Wikipedia's drawbacks, students will continue to take advantage of the resource – and the default response of academics to simply advise against using the site is unlikely to have much effect. Lancaster lecturer Dr Catherine Easton says students must develop an ability to analyse the nature of the source material within Wikipedia, adding that the educator should ensure there is "a strong, continuing focus on the need to support academic work with references to acceptable scholarly sources".
