10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning)

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning) | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."

a great summary about ways to target our learners in the digital space. 

Mark Treadwell's curator insight, July 27, 3:47 PM

A great list of elements that contribute to a good prompt. Prompts initiate curiosity via the stimulation of the release of hormones that trigger astrocytic cells (75% of all brain cells) in the brain to trigger neurons to map and automate complex neural patterns we call ideas and concepts. MT

Do you have the wrong impression about online learning? [Infographic]

Do you have the wrong impression about online learning? [Infographic] | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

Today, no longer is having a high school diploma is enough to land a good job and support family. College is key today, but finding the funds to pay for it can be tricky. Brick and mortar institutions cost a fortune, and most have to work while going to school. But for those who can't juggle both, online learning can be a great option.

 

We know what that you may think this avenue is for slackers, but have a look at our infographic below, and your opinion may just change.

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it
The label of “21st Century learning” is vague, and is an idea that we here at TeachThought like to take a swing at as often as possible, including:

 

 –weighing the magic of technology with its incredible cost and complexity

 

–underscoring the potential for well thought-out instructional design

 

–considering the considerable potential of social media platforms against its apparent divergence from academic learning

 

Some educators seek out the ideal of a 21st century learning environment constantly, while others prefer that we lose the phrase altogether, insisting that learning hasn’t changed, and good learning looks the same whether it’s the 12th or 21st century.

 

At TeachThought, we tend towards the tech-infused model, but do spend time exploring the limits and challenges of technology, the impact of rapid technology change, and carefully considering important questions before diving in head-first. 

 

The following take on 21st century learning developed by TeachThought is notable here because of the absence of technology. There is very little about iPads, social media, 1:10 laptops, or other tech-implementation. In that way, it is closer to the “classic” approach to “good learning” than it is the full-on digital fare we often explore.

 

The size of the circles on the map are intended to convey priority.

50 Smartphone Apps Every Teacher Should Know About

50 Smartphone Apps Every Teacher Should Know About | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

We cover many of these apps (and why you should know about them) in our latest issue of the Edudemic Magazine. It’s all about the technology needed for when you head back to school. Check it out here! The following is a cross-post from our content partners at Online Colleges

 

Mobile phones managed to mostly kick their classroom stigma once the iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and other PDA-cellular hybrids (also known as “smartphones,” but you knew that already) popped onto the scene.

 

Thanks to the veritable Library of Alexandria of apps available on the respective markets, life can run that much smoother for professionals of all types. And that, of course, includes teachers.
