Warmers and fillers for the online classroom - EnglishUp | Teaching with technology | Scoop.it

The online classroom can at times seem like a very cold space and building a supportive and friendly environment for students while getting a clear idea of their capabilities can be quite challenging. Having some zero preparation activities up your sleeve to get students speaking can be a real benefit.

tom cockburn's curator insight, December 24, 2014 6:17 AM

Motivation and cooperative learning are good uses problems arise for people in the evaluation and assessment and that compromises the acceptance of such by potential employers etc. The difficulty is in discerning the difference between collaborative or shared learning as opposed to simple collusion in getting answers which may not entail much,if any learning,other than how to cheat and thus disadvantage genuine learners who have made an effort.Thus making use of others' research to inform your own projects is not the same as claiming others' work as your own...and that is a big selling point for systems like Turnitin and others.

Top Ten Moodle Course Design No-Nos

Top Ten Moodle Course Design No-Nos | Teaching with technology | Scoop.it

Well, welcome to the post that tells you what not to do. Typically, I wouldn’t use negative examples to express how to implement best practices in Moodle course design, but sometimes we all just need a clear and concise ‘what not to do’ list, don’t we?

 

For today’s blog, I’m going to share with you my personal, top ten “Moodle course design no-no’s”! When designing Moodle courses, I think the key is to keep your students’ experience in mind with every step of development. It’s important not to overwhelm (or underwhelm) your students… especially those who may be new to the Moodle LMS (or online learning in general). Staying away from the following “no-no’s” is your best bet for a fully functional Moodle course, and long-term student success!

1. Don’t forget the syllabus!
2. Don’t create a glorified file repository!
3. Don’t clutter your course with too many blocks!
4. Don’t flood your Front Page with graphics!
5. Don’t use color to draw attention or ‘look pretty’!
6. Don’t create a “link farm” with files on your course Front Page!
7. Don’t overuse one module type!
8. Don’t use modules you don’t understand!
9. Don’t overuse labels!
10. Don’t forget to have fun!
Moodle was created on the Social Constructivism pedagogy, which centers around all course participants, both teachers and learners, contributing to the learning experience. As I said above, you should always design your courses with the student in mind. Think to yourself, “Would I want to take this course?”.

En mi opinión es vital que consideremos al diseño instrucción al como parte del proceso de planeación sin perder jamás de vista que es el medio y no el fin en sí mismo.
.
Creo que deberemos estructurar primero, planear, y después diseñar ya que si no comprendemos el proceso del diseño de los entornos de aprendizaje, no podremos crear espacios que realmente potencien el aprendizaje de nuestros alumnos.

It Sure Is Complicated: Teen Life in the Digital Age | MiddleWeb | Teaching with technology | Scoop.it

As parent of two teenagers and as a teacher of pre-teens, I took away a lot of information from It’s Complicated. First and foremost is the idea that young people have less and less access to public spaces and time in which to socialize with friends and peers.
