The new learning experiences

Sue Gaardboe's curator insight, February 13, 2:20 AM

If you can do it with paper why use a digital alternative? Because for some of students, it makes the difference between engagement and being switched off.  Of couse finding the activities that you just can't do with paper...that's the real power of a digital solution.

Jennifer Turner's curator insight, February 24, 1:40 PM

Don't be afraid of social media when you can learn how to use it in your classroom.  This reasource is a great find for educators that may want to use social media but just do not know where to incorporate it.

Being present- A critique of online education

Being present- A critique of online education | Technology for Learning | Scoop.it

Too many online enthusiasts sell the new generation of students short by arguing that they can only learn if they are being entertained or if learning is an exciting, self-paced activity. Yet, we still need to teach people to concentrate and sustain their attention when things may get a little boring or difficult. Not all education should be fast-paced and visually stimulating; rather, people have to learn how to focus and stick with difficult and challenging tasks.

Being engaging and relevant is still important. Interesting to read that we need to develop  perseverance and 'grit' in our students.

The Spectrum of Opinion About MOOCs

It’s been interesting to see the incredibly wide variety of opinions about the hot topic of MOOCs the past two years.  As part of a presentation last week at a faculty development conference, I compiled some articles on MOOCs and arranged them from the most extremely “pro” MOOC articles, to the most negative and critical.
