I looked at this app about a year ago and at the time it didn't look very impressive. It looks now though like they have done considerable work to improve it. GoClass could be a great way to create and deliver your lessons directly from your iPad to your students' iPads or Android tablets (there is an Android version too). Very handy.

3 Common Barriers To Success In A Flipped Classroom Model

3 Common Barriers To Success In A Flipped Classroom Model | University Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"Bloom’s two-sigma problem refers to observations that Bloom and his graduate students made in the mid-eighties, where they showed that one-on-one tuition, combined with mastery learning (i.e. not allowing a student to progress to the next topic until the current topic has been completely understood), would move an average student (i.e. one who would ordinarily rank in the 50th percentile) up to the 98th percentile...

 

So the two-sigma problem is: how can this process of one-on-one instruction and mastery learning be replicated in the classroom?"

Humanities Harder to Translate into Online Learning Environment

Humanities Harder to Translate into Online Learning Environment | University Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"According to a recently published report by the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, the number of students pursuing humanities majors in college is dropping precipitously. Half as many humanities degrees were awarded in 2010 as in 1966 when 14% of all college graduates majored in the area. Even schools with historically strong humanities programs like Harvard are noticing the drop."

Call for paradigm shift in education

Call for paradigm shift in education | University Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"Education for all can only be achieved through the use of information and communications technology (ICT), says a renowned educator at the 20th iEARN International Conference and 17th Youth Summit at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC)."

 

“The problem is our current educational system does not help us provide education for all. There is therefore a need for a paradigm shift in education. The use of ICT is the answer, the only solution to provide education for all,” said Dr Mohamed Ally, Professor in Distance Education and a researcher in the Technology Enhanced Knowledge Research Institute at Athabasca University in Canada.

Why Teaching Helps Students Learn More Deeply

Why Teaching Helps Students Learn More Deeply | University Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Students enlisted to tutor others, these researchers have found, work harder to understand the material, recall it more accurately and apply it more effectively. In a phenomenon that scientists have dubbed “the protégé effect,” student teachers score higher on tests than pupils who are learning only for their own sake.

DNA of a 21st Century Educator Simplified!

During your lifetime you have probably experienced inspirational educators, or witnessed inspiring lectures. But, what about you? Are you such an educator? If not, why not? In this talk, I [Zaid Alsagoff] explored some of the ingredients top educators in the 21st century have, and how we can learn from them to reinvent ourselves to reach our true potential as an educator. This talk was given on the 9 February (2013) at Jazan University (Saudi Arabia).

I am taking this a bit further. How do you programme someone to become a potential 21st Century Educator?  Start from the home by educating pre-schoolers. The Piagetian and Montessori idea of presenting children with a variety of educational toys and games suitable for their age and helping them to assimilate new learning is basically simple.  This is just the beginning..........

This may sound like a lofty title, but it’s not wrong. There’s an impressive presentation making the rounds dubbed “Mobile is eating the World” by Benedict Evans. In the presentation, Evans shows some staggering charts, interesting factoids, and all the other statistics you’d expect with a title so grand. It makes me think about mobile learning, mobile browsing, and mobile everything.

What do you feel are the key digital literacy skills that 21st century learners need? | University Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Digital literacy has become one of the major issues facing educators in this early part of the 21st century. The need to develop students and teachers digital literacies has become increasingly accepted as fact and yet most teachers' and students' understanding of what exactly constitutes a digital literacy still seems to remain quite vague. Even more vague seems to be teachers' understanding of how precisely we go about developing those literacies.

Six Steps to Developing Your Own 21st Century Educational Technology

Six Steps to Developing Your Own 21st Century Educational Technology | University Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"Over the course of the past few months, many educators, including myself, have been scrambling to meet the needs of the '21st century classroom' or the 'technology-enriched classroom.'

 

As a field, we have discovered that our youth are adapting to a technologically advanced society, and as they progress, our educational system is falling further behind, quite literally, by the hour. As a solution, our principals and administrators have decided that we have a goal to reach, but ultimately, we’re the leaders of our classrooms, and we’re the ones who have to figure out how to turn our classrooms into technology-enriched environments, or move over for someone else who can."

Faster Outreach to Students, Through a Mobile App

Faster Outreach to Students, Through a Mobile App | University Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"The creators of a new mobile application are aiming to improve colleges’ engagement with students, using pop-up messages to survey students and aggregate data in real time.

 

The app, Student Engauge, is part of a larger trend toward mobile outreach, as colleges seek ways to engage with students who often don’t respond to e-mails or online pestering, says Justin Reich, a fellow at Harvard University’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society. The app follows in the path of mobile warning messagesthat many colleges have adopted to alert students of campus emergencies."

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, June 9, 2013 10:18 AM

"We are living in a historical moment of transformation and realignment in the creation and sharing of knowledge, in social, political and economic life, and in global connectedness. There is wide agreement that we need new models of education suited to this historic moment, and not simply new models of schooling, but entirely new visions of learning better suited to the increasing complexity, connectivity, and velocity of our new knowledge society. Fortunately, we are also able to harness the same technologies and social processes that have powered these transformations in order to provide the next generation with learning experiences that open doors to academic achievement, economic opportunity, and civic engagement.


Specifically, we now have the capability to reimagine where, when, and how learning takes place; to empower and motivate youth to pursue knowledge and develop expertise at a pace, to a degree, and on a path that takes advantage of their unique interests and potential; and to build on innovations across a growing spectrum of learning institutions able to support a range of learning experiences for youth that were unimaginable even 15 years ago."

Exploring Online Discussions - Raw research notes and article annotations

Abstract (pasted from AERA 2013 program)

This study investigated relationships between how students “listen” (access existing posts) and “speak” (contribute posts) in asynchronous online discussions. Eleven variables indexing four dimensions of student’s listening (breadth, depth, temporal contiguity and revisitation) and five variables indexing three dimensions of students’ speaking (discursiveness, depth of content, and reflectivity) were calculated for 31 students participating in six week-long online discussions as part of an undergraduate educational psychology course. Multiple regression analysis indicated that the breadth of students’ listening (the percentage of peers’ posts viewed) predicted both the responsiveness and argumentative quality of their posts, but the depth with which they attended to the posts (time spent viewing) did not. Implications for the theory and practice of online discussions are discussed.
