Online as well as f2f, this process puts Vygotsky's zone of proximal development into practice. 

Linda Kaiser, PhD's curator insight, December 4, 2014 12:26 PM

The best way to learn something is to teach it to someone else.  These students in this article are doing just that.  Those who struggle to learn a new concept have found that teaching it to their peers via a video presentation are learning more deeply than if they were just trying to understand the concepts on their own.

Do I Need a Digital Teaching Portfolio? | Technology Tools for School | Scoop.it
Designing a well-organized and professional teaching portfolio can give you an edge in a competitive job market, and help you score high marks on your school's teacher evaluation form. It is, however, a time-consuming endeavor (the average portfolio takes about two to three days of work), and once built, your portfolio will require regular attention.

A great resource for information on Flipped Learning.   Although based on the education system many of these techniques are being used for business training, meaning time spent in the classroom becomes more productive, interactive and meaningful.

Could Sway become the default tool for quick-and-dirty story based learning? It's coming to iOS and Windows 10 as native apps, extending its authoring reach beyond the browser. This is a tool that we should all get to know.
