Recording can improve a bad lecture! 7 surprising facts about recorded lectures | Technology for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

You don’t have to know much about the psychology of learning to realise that a series of once-only, delivered lectures is pedagogic nonsense. We learn next to nothing from once-only experiences like unrecorded lectures. Indeed, everything we know about learning shows that repeated access to content is necessary for learning.

Thoughts on EduMOOC topics: My Educational Philosophy | Technology for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

During this past summer I took part in EduMOOC –Online Learning Today and Tomorrow, a Massive Open Online Course, which was based in Connectivist theory, and I feel this is the more appropriate philosophy for helping the 21st century community college learner.

A Decade of Distraction? How Multitasking Affects Student Outcomes by Reynol Junco, Shelia Cotten :: SSRN

"The proliferation and ease of access to information and communication technologies (ICTs) such as Facebook, text messaging, and instant messaging has resulted in ICT users being presented with more real-time streaming data than ever before. Unfortunately, this has also resulted in individuals increasingly engaging in multitasking as an information management strategy. The purpose of this study was to examine how college students multitask with ICTs and to determine the impacts of this multitasking on their college GPA. Using web survey data from a large sample of college students at one university (N = 1,839), we found that students reported spending a large amount of time using ICTs on a daily basis. Students reported frequently searching for content not related to courses, using Facebook, emailing, talking on their cell phones, and texting while doing schoolwork. Hierarchical (blocked) linear regression analyses revealed that using Facebook and texting while doing schoolwork were negatively associated with overall college GPA. Conversely, emailing was positively associated with college GPA. Engaging in Facebook use or texting while trying to complete schoolwork may tax students’ capacity for cognitive processing and preclude deeper learning, while emailing may be directly related to learning. Our research indicates that the type and purpose of ICT use matters in terms of the educational impacts of multitasking."

INFOGRAPHIC : The Textbooks Of Tomorrow | Technology for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"One figure I am not entirely convinced about is the assertion that digital books are on average 53% cheaper than print books. When I owned a Kindle last year, I used to compare a lot of book prices to see the price difference between the print version and the digital version. What I found was that there was not a lot of difference in price, nothing that would make me go “wow!”. 53%? I think that might be slightly on the optimistic side."

Constructivism, Connectivism & Convergence : John Connell: The Blog | Technology for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

So what distinguishes a connectivist perspective from social constructivism? The difference is fairly subtle. As far as I can see, connectivism resonates with similar principles as social constructivism does, but acknowledges a greater degree of complexity in the nature of knowledge and learning, enabled by advances in technology.
