Tony Zameczkowski:  "Content creators, whether traditional media or YouTubers, are moving from a passive consumption model focused on the TV or desktop, to one where their fans are empowered to engage with them and with each other especially on mobile platforms. We’re shifting from a world of viewers to mobile communities of fans."

The Windoor's curator insight, October 4, 2015 10:07 AM

Tony Zameczkowski, actual vicepresidente y director de marketing en Victorious, es un profesional arraigado de la industria mediática. En este artículo Zameczkowski nos muestra, de forma resumida, como ha ido evolucionando el consumo de contenidos de Internet. Una de las ideas que podemos destacar es que, a día de hoy, la creación de contenidos se ha convertido en una retroalimentación continua, válida para cualquier tipo de información - ya sea de carácter comercial o informativa -.

When Schools Overlook Introverts: Why Quiet Time is Important for the Learning Process - The Atlantic

When Schools Overlook Introverts: Why Quiet Time is Important for the Learning Process - The Atlantic | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
As the focus on group work and collaboration increases, classrooms are neglecting the needs of students who work better in quiet settings.
Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:
I recently had a conversation with a colleague about introverts and how they learn. This article struck a chord. I do not believe you have to be an extrovert to be successful and schools need to truly differentiate for all learning styles.

MindMup

MindMup | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

Another way MindMup is now allowing you to work with larger groups easier is a quick notification mechanism when someone changes a node. You'll get a small speech bubble pop up for several seconds and disappear automatically, so it's easy to keep an eye on the entire team or classroom. At the moment, this only works for node text changes, but in the future we'll add other notification types.

Use the Impossible to Fail Quiz to Give Students Instant Remediation

Use the Impossible to Fail Quiz to Give Students Instant Remediation | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

"Does your gut (and your assessment) tell you some students didn't get it the first time you taught it? Would you like to give students remediation exclusively for concepts they don't understand? Isn’t it impossible to deliver precise remediation to each student in your classroom?"

The quiz is impossible to fail because it directs students to a review video when they incorrectly answer a question. Students then re-try the question. Every time they answer incorrectly, they are directed to the video. When students answer correctly, they move on to the next question.The quiz is meant as a opportunity for students to practice and receive remediation when needed. It is not meant to be an assessment tool. Each student will eventually choose the right answer to the questions.


Via C.Rathsack
Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:
There is a lot of talk about how failure helps learners to learn. This technique has the best of both worlds. Students can get an answer wrong but are then given another chance to try, and another, and another, if necessary. This makes them responsible for their learning but allows them to achieve success and to learn along the way.
