Nice breakdown at a glance.

Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's curator insight, May 21, 2013 8:50 AM

Most students at the undergrad/grad level are adults or are beginning to be adults, so instructional design should take these differences into account.

Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's comment, May 21, 2013 8:53 AM
Quote from article: "In the final analysis, I do not think that there are differences in the way we learn as adults, or kids, but rather the differences lie in the opportunities afforded to learn. If we respected kids more as learners, they might be more self-directed and motivated in their learning. If they are allowed to participate in their learning, they might take more ownership."

The Persistent Appeal of Technology in Learning

The Persistent Appeal of Technology in Learning | Teaching in the Now | Scoop.it

The technology they use in their personal lives just makes sense for use in their learning as well. If a student badly wanted a new tablet or app for his or her own personal use but wanted nothing to do with it for any kind of learning whatsoever, we may need to look at the disconnect.

But there are other reasons why education consistently turns to technology

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, May 12, 2013 10:28 AM

The challenge is this – How can you effectively teach thousands of students simultaneously? I’m fascinated by the contrast between post-secondary faculty and K-12 teacher contract agreements that limit class size and the current emergent MOOC aim of having as many enrollments as possible. What a dichotomy.


MOOC’s have done a great job at creating courses open to massive enrollments from anywhere around the world. But how well are MOOC’s doing at actually successfully teaching those students? Based on MOOCs equally massive dropout rates having teaching and learning success on a massive scale will require pedagogical innovation. It’s this innovation, more than massive enrollments or free that I think make MOOC’s important.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, May 23, 2013 12:34 PM

"The open-source (or “free” or “libre”) software movement centers around a single ideal: community ownership of software. Open-source software may or may not be free-as-in-beer (no cost), but it is always free-as-in-speech. Not only do users have the right to use the software, but users, developers, and re-developers have the rights to access, manipulate, break, rebuild the original code to fix bugs, add features, or create new projects. Open-source software is licensed in a semi-restrictive way. Limitations are placed on the use of the software that preserve the rights of the community (such as the requirement that all derivative versions use the same license). The author gives up the sole right to sell, distribute, and create derivative works in order to preserve those rights for the community, of which the author is, of course, a member."

A new way to do peer review | Kris Shaffer

I recently published two articles with Hybrid Pedagogy, and I thoroughly enjoyed the peer-review process. I hope their model will be picked up by other academic journals, because it did exactly what I think peer-reviewed academic publishing should do: it ensured that my ideas were sound before publication, it made my writing better, and it helped my writing reach a larger audience than I could on my own.
