Leonard Waks's curator insight, November 16, 2014 1:20 AM

Of these 10 proposed drivers, I an guessing that the most important will be #5 and #6. At least for the time being, universities are really strapped for funds. Consider for # 5 a 'MOOC-Based wrapped course' where a prof assigns a MOOC as homework, and then  meets with the class one day a week = and follows up with a couple of weeks of class time at the end for projects and examinations. This strikes me as a  good division of labor in many courses - letting the high production videos do what they do best and the prof do what demands a human mind and heart for problem solving and coaching and mentoring. It can reduce faculty time by more than 1/2 without loss of quality. Now for #6, consider a group of twenty faculty members teaching wrapped courses based on the very same MOOC. They will have many questions and concerns and they can (a) find each other and (b) address them collectively through their learning network. The only other 'driver' that floats my boat at this point is #3. Many students like MOOC-based courses. The lectures are excellent and fit conveniently into schedules, and the professor is available to serve his or her most important functions. But I wouldn't oversell this. Many students still prefer day to day hand holding and may actually need it from a socio-emotional perspective to stay engaged in the course. So I'm betting on #5 and #6 as most important.

Shifting Toward An Architecture of Participation - Te@chThought

Shifting Toward An Architecture of Participation - Te@chThought | EdTech | Scoop.it
Reading, in terms of scale and diversity, is different than it used to be. Thinking, in terms of context and application, is also different.

It makes since that learning is also changing–becoming more entrepreneurial than directly didactic. That is, more learner-centered and than teacher-controlled.

The presentation below by Steven Wheeler explores some of the shifts occurring in our digital age. Wheeler also clarifies the difference between knowledge, wisdom, and critical awareness. As we explore so many new teaching and learning methods, an ironic side-effect is there is no longer a consensus on what “learning” is, a concept this presentation seeks to understand.

Making Learning Meaningful: 6 Priorities For Whole Learning - TeachThought | EdTech | Scoop.it

"Editor’s Note: We recently discovered the Bay Area’s Prospect Sierra School’s interesting learning model that prioritizes 6 ideas for learning in the 21st century. There is, of course, no single “best” way to pursue “21st century learning”–nor any learning at all for that matter. But seeing the way other inspired educators pursue the idea can teach each one of us a lot. In this model, we appreciate the inclusion of self-knowledge, as well as moving past the idea of content to true disciplinary knowledge–seeing knowledge in context and application."

Which means data never sleeps, and the internet sure likes to use up a lot of it. How much? In any given minute, 277,000 tweets are published on Twitter, 216,000 photos are sent to Instagram and 8,333 videos are shared on Vine.

 

And we’re just getting started. Over that same 60 second period, 347,222 photos are sent on WhatsApp, 416,667 swipes are made on Tinder and 3,472 images are pinned on Pinterest.

 

And if you think that’s impressive, Google receives 4 millions search queries, Facebook users share 2.46 million pieces of content and 204 million email messages are sent each and every minute of the day.

As a language-based disorder, dyslexia is often associated with speech problems, word recognition and spelling difficulties. Dyslexic people are not abnormal people. They are like anybody else. They have learning capabilities and are able to achieve and perform better when provided with the necessary kind of help and the right environment to thrive in.

Technology now can do a lot  towards helping dyslexic students learn better. In today's post I am sharing with you this excellent collection of iPad apps curated specifically for teachers and parents to use with their dyslexic kids. These apps are divided into different areas including: letter formation and identification, phonics, spelling, vocabulary, comprehension, sentence structure, early reading, text to speech, handwriting recognition, story creation and many more. All of these apps are hyperlinked , clicking on the app icon will take you to its page on iTunes store.

  2. promotes customer/staff advocacy (or not)
  3. affects the way the business will develop
  4. connects more effectively with customers (or not)

This all depends on whether the stories you share about your company are effective or not.

"Storytelling is one of the oldest habits of modern civilization. Ever since we learned to communicate, understand each other, we have been telling stories. At a time when your website is the storefront of your business and a gateway to increased conversions, storytelling is surely one of the key components that can play a crucial role in turning the tides in your favor. After all, web design is also about communicating concepts and ideas, isn’t it?"

I like this quick article because it reminds us of 3 key points to remember when sharing our business stories on our website:

  1. Words matter. For me I find it much easier to record myself telling a story orally and then converting that to text. From there I can then craft a written story without losing my unique voice and authenticity.
  2. Parallax web design is a very cool tool for telling your brand story.
  3. A mascot (think MailChimp) can be a big boost for your business -- especially in B2C. Although MailChimp is a B2B company, I think figuring out if a mascot will work for you is all about really knowing your audience. 


Think about these 3 points and have an awesome day.
