An Interactive Tutorial: Google Presentation

An Interactive Tutorial: Google Presentation | eLearning | Scoop.it

Google Presentation is a great tool for helping students construct knowledge about a topic as they create. Here is an interactive tutorial designed to demonstrate how to use some of the handy built in features.

Elena Keating's curator insight, August 12, 2013 9:28 PM

Google can be accessed by most students both at home and school. These tutorials will assist children with how to use the technology that has been set by the teacher (facilitator) to demonstrate the what of their learning to share with others and to comment on others' learning. This then redefines the activities.

Elena Keating's curator insight, August 13, 2013 5:40 AM

This particular item is a fantastic online resource for students to learn about how Google can be used to help track their research, and develop presentations collaboratively with others within their class to share. By doing so, this is a functional improvement to the technology in that now it has provided an opportunity to augment the production of a presentation on line in time with someone other than the original author. It now fits into Connectivist theory because of the social interaction. It creates an artefact to demonstrate learning and can involve student selected options to display the learning .The teacher is now no longer ‘the sage on the stage” but “the guide on the side”.

Learners are encouraged to create their own pathway in learning and can utilize as little or as much of the technology to help them gather the information, store it and retrieve it as and when needed. They may choose to reject some of the data, or alter the presentation to suit their own understandings and preferred learning style.

I like the way the this tool allows the student to create their own topic. Once again taking on responsibility for their own learning.

Curation in Learning | Ben Betts is...

Curation in Learning | Ben Betts is... | eLearning | Scoop.it

Ben Betts: We can think of digital curation as being useful to us in four broad roles that I’m calling Inspiration, Aggregation, Integration and Application. Inspiration is how I term curation that is done by other people on your behalf, outside of a formal learning environment.  Aggregation is the same thing, but done within a formal learning context.  Integration is a more personal curation process; how individuals blend new learning experiences with existing thoughts.  And finally Application is how individuals apply new insights in the real world; how we individually manage knowledge on a day-to-day basis.  I capture this flow in a simple matrix that demonstrates how the four types of curation can flow into each other in a continuous learning cycle:

Preparing for the digital university: a review of the history and current state of distance, blended, and online learning

Preparing for the digital university: a review of the history and current state of distance, blended, and online learning | eLearning | Scoop.it

The sheer scale of numbers of students led to bold proclamations of education disruption and a sector on the verge of systemic change. However, from the perspective of 2015, these statements appear increasingly erroneous as moocs have proven to be simply an additional learning opportunity instead of a direct challenge to higher education itself. Many of the issues confronting early mooc development and offerings could have been reduced if greater consideration was given to research literature in learning sciences and technology enabled learning.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 21, 2015 5:59 AM

"This chapter focuses on the role of the teacher or tutor in an online learning context. It uses the theoretical model developed by Garrison, Anderson, and Archer (2000) that views the creation of an effective online educational community as involving three critical components: cognitive presence, social presence, and teaching presence. This model was developed and verified through content analysis and by other qualitative and quantitative measures in recent research work at the University of Alberta (for papers resulting from this work see Anderson, Garrison, Archer & Rourke, N.d.) (http://www.atl.ualberta.ca/cmc)."
