How not to promote technology in teaching: An open letter  | Technology in Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Kiruthika Ragupathi's insight:
Technology is a powerfully humanizing force, a means of restoring and extending the humanity of students. To improve education and student learning, the article suggests three things when using technology in teaching -- (1) avoid skepticism, (2)Lead with relationships, not with technology, and (3) Seek minimalism when it comes to technological answers to educational problem.

Professor, Students Share Reactions to Flipped Classroom

Professor, Students Share Reactions to Flipped Classroom | Technology in Pedagogy | Scoop.it

A flipped learning model has more moving parts because one must unbundle traditional teaching practices. Professor LaRocco shares his experiences. He discusses how he has enhanced his course materials—case studies, readings, and expert interviews—with tools including Camtasia, Socrative, and Wikispaces.

Kiruthika Ragupathi's insight:

Good advice when you consider blending your course:
”As you think about taking apart what you think you know for a blended learning course, remember the pleasure is in the experience. Go in with an open mind, get as much help as you can and don’t be intimidated by the tools, and get help, also from your students”.

5 great videos for clarity on Blended Learning and its power | Technology in Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Blended Learning can be simply defined as a formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through online delivery of content and instruction with some element of student control over time, place, path and/or pace and at least in part at a supervised brick-and-mortar location away from home.

It is a mix of different learning methods brought together to meet your learning objectives. Blended learning is not one size fits all, learner’s needs and circumstances are different. These are key reasons to introduce blended learning.

More efficient long term results.Students are more involved using a diversity of content types.Diverse learner, diverse learning style.Teacher has the capability to evaluate learner tendencies and turn accordingly.Improved Feedback.Blended Learning can make learning fun.

Reviving Threaded Discussions: Strategies to Enhance Virtual Conversations | IDDblog | Technology in Pedagogy | Scoop.it
No matter how you decide to frame the assignment, it’s important to ensure that the discussion is meaningful and not busy work. Some of the most effective discussions foster students’ creativity, ability to solve problems, make decisions, collaborate, and conduct research. Interestingly enough, this type of engagement is similar to what students experience with K-12 educational technology via ISTE’s NETS standards for students. Continuing to build on this framework at the collegiate level is essential.

How teachers and students use tools is part of a conversation with and through the tools. How we experience those tools can alter how we experience our relationships with others. For example, does the new tool anchor us in ways that change our pedagogic touch?

Preparing for the digital university: a review of the history and current state of distance, blended, and online learning | Technology in Pedagogy | Scoop.it

The sheer scale of numbers of students led to bold proclamations of education disruption and a sector on the verge of systemic change. However, from the perspective of 2015, these statements appear increasingly erroneous as moocs have proven to be simply an additional learning opportunity instead of a direct challenge to higher education itself. Many of the issues confronting early mooc development and offerings could have been reduced if greater consideration was given to research literature in learning sciences and technology enabled learning.

Moving from lecturing to becoming a facilitator of learning can be risky. Sometimes we aren’t prepared for those feelings of uncertainty.

Discussions are sometimes called the engine of an online course. Discussions provide an opportunity for students to engage with the course content, with each other, and with you—the professor—simultaneously, which means they have a lot of potential for meaningful learning and high retention.

There is no guarantee that students will really apply themselves by just creating a discussion. What you get out of a discussion assignment depends on what you put into it. Here are some tips for writing your discussion prompt, selecting your settings, and participating in the discussion.
