10 Motivational TED Talks to Start Your Morning

10 Motivational TED Talks to Start Your Morning | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
One of my favorite innovations in recent years is the idea of TED Talks. Whether you attend a session in person or watch online, you can learn and gain inspiration and see and hear people tell their stories and share their expertise firsthand. It's accessible, substantive information on virtually every topic imaginable.

If reading the news first thing in the morning is bringing you down, why not save that task for a bit later in the day? Instead, take in one of these great TED talks with your breakfast. Since they're under 20 minutes, it's the perfect amount of time to spend with your breakfast and coffee--and you'll start the day informed, motivated, and ready to go do great things.

How Colleges Should Adapt in a Networked Age

How Colleges Should Adapt in a Networked Age | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

In a Re:Learning podcast, The Chronicle talks with Joshua Cooper Ramo, who points to a shift in attitudes toward college and authority figures in general.


Leaders today, he says, keep making the same mistake, assuming that what worked in the old system will continue in this new, networked era. New instincts are required, he says, what he calls the "seventh sense."

Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s insight:
Though provoking. I don't agree with everything he says, but it is interesting.

Why the Next 10 Years of Educational Technologies will Smash the Last 10

Why the Next 10 Years of Educational Technologies will Smash the Last 10 | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

When you think about the advance of technology in society in the last decade, the progress has been phenomenal – just take a look at these examples to see how far we have come in such a short space of time. Now, think about education. Think about the technology in your school ten years ago – perhaps a computer suite with an unreliable bank of PC’s; CD-ROMs; discs; slow, irrelevant programs; staff scared of using IT; and so on.

Kevin Morrison's curator insight, September 20, 10:42 AM
This is all great news but as a parent and having watched as my kids go through K12 it is abundantly evident and clear that none of this technology is worth a thing unless the educators that are using it as a tool understand it and can wield it to their benefit. Sadly they are having a tough time getting to grips with simple devices like iPads and Chrome pads with NO special software other than the reporting software. To which I am finding they are having trouble just posting things such as grades and test scores.

A Chart Featuring Some of The Best Augmented Reality Apps to Use With Students

A Chart Featuring Some of The Best Augmented Reality Apps to Use With Students | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Augmented reality is making some huge inroads in the field of education. More and more teachers are incorporating this relatively new technology in their classrooms. Augmented reality is also redefining the notion of learning by adding a layer of interactivity, engagement and vividness to students learning experiences. Teachers have been using augmented reality in many varied ways and across different school subjects, this post from Edutopia provides some good examples in this regard. The success of AR in education is attributed to the increasing availability of mobile apps designed specifically to help learners leverage the power of AR in their learning.  Below are some very good AR apps to try out with your students. This is a work in progress and we will be adding more to the list in the future. Enjoy

Gamification is the use of game elements to motivate people to complete tasks. According to the Gartner Hype Cycle for Education, though, gamification is sliding into the Trough of Disillusionment, where interest wanes as experiments and implementations fail to deliver. Why? This article connects poor gamification implementation and poor eLearning design, and it suggests what we can do about both.

Common Misconceptions of Teaching with Technology

All of the above misconceptions promote a sense of fear among educators and impede the adaption of educational technology. But we can’t turn a blind eye to the fact that technology is going to pervade into every aspects of education and changes, both subtle and disruptive, are inevitable. Teachers, technologists and other stakeholders such as government should work together and make the best use of technology to improve teaching and learning and prepare our children for the future.

7 Important Questions Before Implementing Digital Portfolios

Digital portfolios are something that are really starting to take off in schools. There are different software programs that will make “portfolios” easy to share, yet do we truly embrace the power that a digital portfolio can bring into our schools? Since it is “digital”, we need to go beyond a portfolio that only represents one year of learning, but can show the progression over time.
