MOOCs: A Postmortem

MOOCs: A Postmortem | Teaching & Learning for the 21st century | Scoop.it
What I mean when I say that MOOCs are dead is not that MOOCs no longer exist, but that MOOCs are no longer competing against universities for the same students. Continuing with the Coursera theme here, in August they became the last of the major MOOC providers to pivot to corporate training. While I did note the departure of Daphne Koller on this blog, I didn’t even bother to mention that pivot at the time because it seemed so unremarkable, but really it is.

Becky Roehrs's curator insight, May 9, 9:50 AM

I love taking MOOC's, but would never want my (public) institution to waste money on creating or maintaining a MOOC ..what a waste of public money! Let the private schools throw their dollars away-we'll be glad to take the courses we like and ignore the rest.

 

It was obvious, IMO, from day one, MOOC's were not set up for a self-sustaining business model, and were building courses on the backs of faculty who were donating their time and  materials to corporations (quite a few of the MOOC providers are not non-profit, in spite of their "good intentions"). 

 

Corporate training is their only hope..until then, take the courses while they are free!

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, June 2, 2015 9:14 AM

A reading transformation can occur in your school much like it has in my classroom, replacing fear and dread with excitement and self-expression. Students will read if they choose the books. They will write with voice and clarity if they have the ability to express their thoughts. They can change from reluctant to inspired readers if it happens on their own terms. All you have to do is flip the experience, turning the practice of reading on its head by making them the creators of their own learning.

Andre Churches et al have created a wonderfully resource rich site for those schools keen to develop 21st Century Global Digital Citizens. It is about engaging in the Fluencies—Solution Fluency, Information Fluency, Creativity Fluency, Media Fluency, and Collaboration Fluency. It is how to be a Citizen in the truest sense of the word. He argues that  “The 21st Century Fluencies have nothing to do with hardware—they are about headware, and heartware!”

So how digitally fluent are you?

Collaboration Matters

Collaboration Matters | Teaching & Learning for the 21st century | Scoop.it

Blogger's note: This post focuses on the importance of integrating collaboration into classroom practice. In my next post, I'll talk about strategies for successful facilitation of collaborative work...

 

Learning is a social process, and the learning process is deepened when ideas are challenged and learners are pushed to produce work that surpasses their expectations of what they can do.

 

That said, working in groups is a continually challenging process. It is important that students aren't forced to work together on projects where collaboration isn't necessary or beneficial to the final product.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, January 23, 2014 4:37 PM

"John Dewey believed that education must be " . . . a process of living and not a preparation for future living." This powerful idea is a helpful reminder of the rich, insightful growth and knowledge that can come from deep, collaborative learning experiences."

Therefore, it could be said true learning is about acting out the theory, of rhetoric and reality remaining close, of adults modelling for young people appropriate learning attitudes and behaviours, as those young people, if forced to choose, will copy what you do rather than do what you say!

This presentation details six highly creative and technology based ways that teachers could incorporate design into their classroom, and use it for assessment. The ideas are as follows: flipbooks, mindmaps, photoquotes, infographics, flashcards and social bookmarking. I like this article a great deal because it in itself is a great example of using technology to design a visually appealing presentation that presents information in a more creative and user-friendly way. It is a designed solution to the problem of getting readers to engage with your content in an information-saturated society!

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom | Teaching & Learning for the 21st century | Scoop.it

Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things. Don’t be fooled by simple explanations of flipped classrooms that simplify a highly complex undertaking.

Being a Growth Mindset Facilitator

Being a Growth Mindset Facilitator | Teaching & Learning for the 21st century | Scoop.it

Jackie GERSTEIN: I was asked recently why I have a strong interest and innate understanding of the growth mindset. I believe it comes from a background of being an adventure educator, and even though it was not labeled as such, the adventure educator embraces a growth mindset when working with participants. The underlying tenet of adventure education is “You are capable of so much more than you can even imagine. I believe in you and your capabilities; and I will set up the conditions for you to develop and amplify that same belief in yourself.”

What’s the Difference Between Executive Functioning Issues and ADHD? @UnderstoodOrg @lawrenceschool

What’s the Difference Between Executive Functioning Issues and ADHD? @UnderstoodOrg @lawrenceschool | Teaching & Learning for the 21st century | Scoop.it
“ Simply put, executive functions are self-regulating skills. We all use them every day to do things like plan ahead, stay organized, solve problems and focus on what’s important. These are some of the same things kids with ADHD have trouble doing. So is there a difference between executive functioning issues and ADHD? And if so, what is it? ADHD is a disorder that’s defined by three broad sets of behaviors or symptoms: inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity. Kids with ADHD have trouble doing things like paying attention, following directions, sitting quietly and waiting for their turn. Children are diagnosed with ADHD if they demonstrate these symptoms much more often than other children their age do, and so much so that and it’s causing them real difficulty at school and in their lives. Executive functions, on the other hand, are very specific ways that the brain works. This means that things like inattention and impulsivity are divided into more distinct skills that kids typically develop during childhood and adolescence.”

Student Work – Portfolios of Learning

Student Work – Portfolios of Learning | Teaching & Learning for the 21st century | Scoop.it

Dr Alec Couros (University of Regina) shares some of the best examples of student work from the ECMP 355 (Technology in Education) undergraduate course he teaches. Each example reflects the student's final course PROJECT, the goals of which varied from either "Build a Learning Resource" or "Learn something new using the Internet" type.

 

A range of different types of PORTFOLIOS of LEARNING are shared in this post and are well worth exploring as they beautifully illustrate the creative and personal ways in which the students demonstrated their learning of the course.

 

These include "Summaries of Learning" in a variety of formats:

*Series of blog posts 

*Screencasts

*Videos and vlogs

*Blogfolios

*Animations

* Wikis

 

The design of this learning activity allowed for personalisation in format choice and made provision for the students to progessively document their learning over the duration of the course, as far as I can ascertain. I would be interested to understand what his exact brief was to the students and what rubric(s) he used to assess these projects, if at all. 

 

PS I had a conversation  with @courosa yesterday on Twitter to explore his approach to assessing his students' "Portfolios of Learning". His response was interesting:

"Assessment was customised to each student based on some general indicators (e.g., quality of artifact) with bulk focused on growth. I tend not to use rubrics and try to keep assessment consultative & personlised. Takes more time, but I think it's more accurate."
