The survey really does not tell us much about what teachers think about edtech. It tells us teachers own and use certain tools more than the general adult population. I know people in the general adult population who use the digital tools well and teachers who do, as well. It does not mean all do. It means some do. We interact with a ton of teachers on social media is not a rigorous conclusion driven out of sound quantitative research.

6 Myths of the Flipped Classroom | Technology and Learning @insidehighered

6 Myths of the Flipped Classroom | Technology and Learning @insidehighered | Technology Integration | Scoop.it
May 7, 2014 - 9:00pmJoshua Kim

What percentage of your meetings is the word “flipped” mentioned? 

We seem to have a history of coming up with the most ridiculously bad words to describe what we are doing in higher education. MOOC, blended, hybrid, and now flipped.

 

In many of these discussions about flipped classrooms I hear the same complaints and the same concerns.  Perhaps if some of the myths around flipped classrooms could be dispelled we’d be able to have more productive conversations.

Build It But Will They Teach?: Strategies for Increasing Faculty Participation & Retention in Online & Blended Education

Summary from Academica Top Ten - Thu 10 July 2010

Case study offers advice for engaging faculty in online and blended learning initiatives

A new study from researchers at Drexel University and Armstrong Atlantic State University offers guidance on improving faculty participation and retention in online andblended education formats. Taking Armstrong Atlantic State University as a case study, the paper notes that faculty with little distance education experience may have preconceived negative attitudes toward online and blended education. AASU faced low faculty interest and participation in its online learning initiative, and undertook 4 initiatives to help win them over. The university held open sessions to make a strong case for online and blended learning; it renamed the Office of Online Learning the Office of Online & Blended Learning; it rebranded its online learning bootcamp as a “teaching fellows program,” and spread its duration out from 4 weeks to 8–12 weeks; and it launched an institutional study to identify and address factors that motivated and inhibited faculty participation. The report offers 8 recommendations for institutions looking to win faculty support for online and blended learning initiatives. Full Report

Five Big Changes to the Future of Teacher Education

Five Big Changes to the Future of Teacher Education | Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Getty In the book Teaching 2030 by Barnett Berry and 12 classroom experts, the authors pinpoint specific skills educators will need to teach in the schools of tomorrow.

 

They say teachers must be prepared to find and adapt new technologies to engage the digital generation, as well as work across traditional subject areas using project learning.

 

They must be able to use data and evidence to inform their practice and know how to work in both virtual learning environments and brick-and-mortar schools. And they’ll need to collaborate with community-based organizations and work in schools that provide all kinds of other services for students and their families.

 

Along those lines, Berry has outlined five changes he believes need to be made to the future of teacher education.
