5 great videos for clarity on Blended Learning and its power

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.

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning | Technology in Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Many educators are doing Education 1.0; talking about doing Education 2.0; when they should be planning and implementing Education 3.0. This post compares the developments of the Internet-Web to those of education. The Internet has become an integral thread of the tapestries of most societies throughout the globe. The web influences people’s way of thinking, doing and being; and people influence the development and content of the web.

Moving from lecturing to becoming a facilitator of learning can be risky. Sometimes we aren’t prepared for those feelings of uncertainty. This is why I always conclude my “Flip a Lesson” workshop with a candid conversation about the shifting role of the instructor in the flipped classroom. Your comfort level, your ability to harness those nerves, and your willingness to take risks significantly influences the success of the flipped learning experience.

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.

more...
Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 15, 2014 8:32 PM

How do you create effective visuals? This post provides 5 Cs to help guide you. Make sure the visual is:

* Clear

* Concise

* Connected

* Compelling

* Complete

Why is this important? People remember visuals, more so than words. As you create a visual make sure that it is easy to understand, that it shares critical information, that it engages the learners.

For each of the 5 C's consider the questions below (quoted from the post).

* Will a visual help make a point clearer?

* Will a visual summarize a point better than text?

* Will a visual help learners make connections?

* Will visuals make content more attractive?

* Will a visual help complete an idea?

Each of these questions are explored...and of course, each has a visual to help us understand the reason. Although the post is addressing eLearning, the same concepts apply in a face2face classroom.
