The Blended Synchronous Learning Handbook is the primary output of the Blended Synchronous Learning Project. It includes the summative findings of the Blended Synchronous Learning case studies, a Blended Synchronous Learning Design Framework, and a range of other resources and information to support blended synchronous learning design research and practice.

HJJP's insight:

Single source education has never been very effective, I still remember those days of pure memorization. I was fortunate enough to have relatives that always asked me about what I learned... and they were not interested in me reciting the facts, they were interested in me telling them what I thought, how it impacted my life or those of others.... When I answered them, and they were happy with my answers, I actually got to understand what I had memorized, and certainly got to master the information in a more meaningful way.... It did not always help with getting excellent grades in exams, but I still accurately remember concepts I learned in 3rd grade.... I feel blended learning is the only way of teaching.... this will allow students to understand and implement complex concepts, catapulting them into much high learning than what we experienced 50 years ago.... or 40... or 30... even 20 or in many classrooms, a couple of days ago....

 

Hope to see many teachers utilizing these sort of blended learning... Current technology makes it so much easier...

Synchronous vs Asynchronous learning in the Online World

Synchronous vs Asynchronous learning in the Online World | Training, Knowledge, thinking and technology | Scoop.it
They are "in sync." Synchronous learning takes place when two or more people are communicating in real time. Sitting in a classroom, talking on the telephone, chatting via instant messaging are examples of synchronous communication.

When something is asynchronous, the meaning is opposite. Two or more things are not "in sync" and are happening at different times. Asynchronous learning is considered more flexible than synchronous learning. The teaching takes place at one time and is preserved for the learner to participate in at another time, whenever it is most convenient for the student.

Speaking of the concept in tech era when most of the learning in online the definitions and the impact of both the methods change drastically. Speaking of Synchronous and Asynchronous e-Learning, the definition for both changes something like this:

Noam Chomsky on the Dangers of Standardized Testing

Noam Chomsky on the Dangers of Standardized Testing | Training, Knowledge, thinking and technology | Scoop.it

"The assessment itself is completely artificial. It’s not ranking teachers in accordance with their ability to help develop children who will reach their potential, explore their creative interests. Those things you’re not testing.. it's a rank that’s mostly meaningless. And the very ranking itself is harmful.

About 5.4 million students, or 1 in 4, took at least one distance education course during the fall of 2012, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.

That said, even the best online programs – like their traditional campus counterparts – have some poor professors. And it can be trickier to identify those instructors in an online course until it’s too late to switch.

The many students beginning a new online course should be aware of these six signs their professor won’t make the grade.

A Model of Good Teaching? @JackieGerstein User Generated Education

A Model of Good Teaching? @JackieGerstein User Generated Education | Training, Knowledge, thinking and technology | Scoop.it

"What I believe the kids learn during their MasterChef Junior experiences:

     * Additional cross-curricular skills including oral communication, following directions;


     * Working with a team;


     * Tolerance for frustration;


     * That their passions and interests are valuable and meaningful.

 

 

Many of the kids in interviews following their elimination from the competition state that it was the best experience of their lives.  I have a hunch that many of these kids would say their MasterChef experiences taught them as much or more than all of the school years combined. I’ve written about creating the conditions for the best day ever.  Educators, in this era of learning, should focus on those conditions that create an environment that each and every one of their students love coming to school and love learning."

No one cares about learning objectives.

 

Think that’s a rogue statement? Perhaps it is, but it’s one of many positions recently debated with zeal in the E-Learning Heroes community when community member Angela Kaufman asked, “Do learners really care about learning objectives?”

 

The community’s response to her question surfaced loads of creative ideas and plenty of food for thought, along with references to valuable research that illustrates the nuances around this hot topic. What follows is a compilation of their responses, grouped into some common themes—The Value of Learning Objectives, Creative Ways to Present Learning Objectives, and Research into Learning Objectives.

The User's Manual To Design Thinking Your Teaching (Infographic)

The User's Manual To Design Thinking Your Teaching (Infographic) | Training, Knowledge, thinking and technology | Scoop.it
What I love about Design Thinking is that it's flexible. There are teaching approaches out there that tell us what to do, but it makes more sense for every teacher to teach differently every year, because we each get different students.
Think about it. We don't treat all our friends and family the same. Our interactions with them are largely based on our experience of who they are and what makes them tick. Teaching is the same way. One size fits all approaches do not work.

The challenge is that, in the grand scheme of things, we only know our students for a short time. However, personalization of education is not a fad; it's a thing. So. let's use the Design Thinking Cycle (Empathy, Definition, Ideation, Prototyping, Testing) to improve Teaching, shall we?

10 Strategies To Make Learning Feel More Like A Game

10 Strategies To Make Learning Feel More Like A Game | Training, Knowledge, thinking and technology | Scoop.it
We’ve talked about gamification quite a bit, which is different than game-based learning, if you’ll recall. (The definition of gamification is the application of game-like mechanics to non-game entities to encourage a specific behavior. You can read more if you’d like.)

Making your classroom work like a game may not be feasible. Terry Heick talked some about the idea in the past, but was talking specifically about video games, whereas many of the items below are inclined more to “games” in general. So we’ve decided to re-approach from another angle with more specific strategies instead of general suggestions.

Via John Evans
HJJP's insight:

For centuries we thought that teaching and learning were about the expertise and knowledge of the person delivering the information. However, we now know that the process of delivering, the environment, in essence the psychology of learning plays a much more important role. Making learning feel like a game is one of those techniques which have demonstrated to achieve better results, than those that make learning feel like a chore. The attached article provides some tools to help making learning more like a game than a chore.
