Eight Roles of an Effective Online Teacher | Faculty Focus

Eight Roles of an Effective Online Teacher | Faculty Focus | Technology Stuff | Scoop.it
Teaching face-to-face and teaching online are both teaching, but they are qualitatively different.

 

Teaching face-to-face and teaching online are both teaching, but they are qualitatively different. In comparison, driving a car and riding a motorcycle are both forms of transportation, but they have enough differences to warrant additional training and preparation when switching from one to the other. The same is true when faculty move from the traditional classroom to the online classroom. There are some things that the two have in common, but there are also plenty of differences. With this in mind, consider the following eight roles of an effective online teacher.

The future of learning - Sugata Mitra

The future of learning - Sugata Mitra | Technology Stuff | Scoop.it

In this talk, Sugata Mitra will take us through the origins of schooling as we know it, to the dematerialisation of institutions as we know them. Thirteen years of experiments in children's education takes us through a series of startling results – children can self-organise their own learning, they can achieve educational objectives on their own, they can read by themselves. Finally, the most startling of them all: groups of children with access to the internet can learn anything by themselves. From the slums of India, to the villages of India and Cambodia, to poor schools in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, the USA and Italy, to the schools of Gateshead and the rich international schools of Washington and Hong Kong, Sugata's experimental results show a strange new future for learning.

Michaela Vila's curator insight, February 13, 2014 11:42 AM

This is a fantastic idea for students to combined PBL and technology. I think this is also a way for teachers to digitally document PBL. I use an iPad and Evernote every day for school, but I never thought of it being a tool for as a future teacher. Though this idea would could only be used for a small amount of classrooms right now, I love this idea and I want to keep it in my back pocket.

See Brian, there is no "cut off" for good articles, just user ability and interest to finish the read... yes, the medium helps (in your case you mentioned "listen") whatever works. In any case, believing that a user won't read an article because it is too long is a fallacy. Someone who believes that simply is not understanding their audience and not giving them what they need and how they need it in digital format.

As platforms change for content exposure with filters such as curation, on site like Scoop.it, writers need to remember that their readers may be looking for more information than a brief 500 word article because they have clicked through from a filtered source, not a random Google search.

Soviet Bus Stops

Soviet Bus Stops | Technology Stuff | Scoop.it

From the shores of the Black Sea to the endless Kazakh steppe, the bus stops show the range of public art from the Soviet era and give a rare glimpse into the creative minds of the time."

Very interesting to see something so simple as a bus stop look like a piece of art that belongs in a museum.  You would never find anything so interesting in America, at least none that I have seen. 

Jared Medeiros's curator insight, March 9, 6:04 PM

A new way to observe and appreciate architecture and creativity from a different culture.  I love the idea of the book to show how something so ordinary and overlooked in everyday society like a bus stop can be turned into works of art.  It would be cool to see this inspire other artists to turn other modern day things into cool works of art.  How awesome would this have been 20 years ago if they did things like this to phone booths?

Louis Mazza's curator insight, April 21, 1:18 PM

This article is a collage of soviet bustops, which happen to be extravagant. Some of them are ancient looking made out of cement. Some have highly decorated sculptures of the sickle and hammer soviet sign. Others are large sheltered areas to protect citizens. By looking at the high scale of bustops, and large amount, it shows that the population must use a lot of bus transport. Some of these bustop are very nice looking, elegant, unique, or a distinct representation of Russian History. It is unique to see a different spin on a Bustop, something that seems so repetitive at Kennedy Plaza here in Providence.

With Attention Method, the slides are designed to add power, emphasis, and deeper understanding to your well-scripted speech.

"One of the best techniques to catch and record ideas is through using visual graphs. Data that is visually encoded is more likely to be processed by the mind in a faster and easier way.

Free webinar: The Why & How of Online Captioning

Wed, Jun 26, 2013 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT



With 17% of the US population facing some form of hearing loss, and online video usage increasing annually, it is imperative that content producers close caption their online videos. 

"The Why & How of Online Captioning" will help content producers, educators, and policymakers understand what they can do to make sure video content is properly captioned to make it accessible. Sarah Murphy and Sam Cartsos from Frameweld will also guide you through the importance of quality transcription, accurate syncing, and segmentation to produce high-quality captions. 


Via Dennis T OConnor
Lara N. Madden's insight:

Being proactive and having captioning as a step in your production is the best way to go. In higher ed, making sure all student materials are captioned according to ADA is a necessity.

more...
Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, June 19, 2013 3:24 PM

All online instructors should be well acquainted with section 508 and accessibility needs in general.  Captioning video remains a daunting task. The more you know how to do, the more valuable and versitle you become as an online educator.
