Find and Drop Images, Quotes and Info References Into Your Presentations with the New Google Research Tool | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

 

Robin Good: I used to love the Google contextual mini-browser (the Google Deskbar - 2003), something probably most people today have never seen nor have a memory of, but which in my humble opinion, was one of the best and most useful tools released by Google ever.

 

Well the little mini-search tool is back in a new customized format inside the Google Docs Presentation tool, where you can now easily search for reference, quotes, information and images related to the topic you are working on in your presentation.

 

Search becomes contextual and the relevant information found can be immediately integrated into the work we are creating. (Any information or image you find with the Google Research Tool can be intuitively selected and dragged onto the slide area, where it can be sized and positioned in any way you like.)

 

Each content item found with the Google Research Tool and utilized in your slide content is automatically linked back to its original source to simplify the credit and attribution process.

 

Extremely useful. Especially for quotes and images.

Make Learning a Lifelong Habit

You’ll stay relevant and be happier.


I recently worked my way through Edmund Morris’s first two Teddy Roosevelt biographies, The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt and Theodore Rex. Roosevelt wasn’t without flaws, but he was by nearly all accounts fascinating and intellectually voracious. He published his first book, The Naval War of 1812, at 23 and continued to write on everything from conservation to politics and biography. According to Morris, at certain periods he was rumored to read a book a day, and all this reading and writing arguably made him both charismatic and uniquely equipped to engage the host of topics he did as president: national conservation efforts, naval expansion, trust regulation, and a variety of others.

3 Benefits of using Augmented Reality in education

3 Benefits of using Augmented Reality in education | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Two of the most admirable traits of humans are their curiosity and imagination. We are curious by nature and we get excited whenever we find something new. We like to ask questions like Why? and What if? and we use our imagination and resources to find answers to our questions. If our ancestors would not have been so curious and imaginative we would still live in caves. But fortunately for us they had questions and found many answers so they got us where we are today. Now it’s our turn to build the future and answer future challenges using these two great assets.

In particular, the word error rate for voice-recognition systems dropped from 43 percent in 1995 to just 6.3 percent this year, and is now on par with humans. “We have seen more progress in this technology in the last 30 months than we saw in the first 30 years,” DuBravac said. Another analyst attending CES that I spoke to was Ronan de Renesse, a consumer technology analyst for the business intelligence firm Ovum, who said he was watching a startup called Voicebox, which has worked on voice recognition for partners including Samsung, AT&T, and Toyota.

Do Quizzes Improve Student Learning? A Look at the Evidence

Do Quizzes Improve Student Learning? A Look at the Evidence | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Recently I’ve been trying to locate the evidence that supports quizzing, wondering if it merits the evidence-based label. Tracking down this evidence in our discipline-based research is challenging because although quizzing has been studied across our disciplines, it’s not easily searchable. My collection of studies is good, but I know it’s not complete. As you might suspect, the results are mixed; they are more positive than negative, but still, a significant number of researchers don’t find that quizzes affect learning outcomes.

It's easy to create time saving quizzes in the online teaching environment.  Quizzes may help you check for understanding.  Quizzes may provide a 'guide' to the reading that keeps students accountable.

 

However,  do quizzes really improve student learning?

 

This article from Maryellen Weimer, PhD will help you understand the question.

6 Signs of a Bad Online Instructor

6 Signs of a Bad Online Instructor | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
About 5.4 million students, or 1 in 4, took at least one distance education course during the fall of 2012, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.

That said, even the best online programs – like their traditional campus counterparts – have some poor professors. And it can be trickier to identify those instructors in an online course until it’s too late to switch.

The many students beginning a new online course should be aware of these six signs their professor won’t make the grade.
