Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture for Higher Education

Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture for Higher Education | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

"The Flipped Classroom, as most know, has become quite the buzz in education.  Its use in higher education has been given a lot of press recently.  The purpose of this post is to:

Provide background for this model of learning with a focus on its use in higher education. Identify some problems with its use and implementation that if not addressed, could become just a fading fad. Propose a model for implementation based on an experiential cycle of learning model."

A very comprehensive post from @jackiegerstein.

10 Social Media Secrets from the Social Scientist

10 Social Media Secrets from the Social Scientist | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
Value is the currency on the Web, and the more value you create, the more people will flock to you. It has been said give till it hurts and you will receive it back in spades.

 

There are some secrets regarding social media that I’d like to share.


I’m a bit of a hard-core social media user and I’ve been doing web and content development for many years now. Because I have been online for a very long time (pre-graphical Web), I am pretty attuned to what constitutes authentic and cooperative behavior online. There are things that set apart the altruistic contributor (check out this cool thing!), for instance, from the self-serving ones (buy my stuff!).

 

If you do nothing else this year, consider shifting your social media strategy to encompass increasingly pro-social guidelines. The more you give, the more the community will give back, but it needs to be done with a sensitive hand.

What Makes a Master Teacher

What Makes a Master Teacher | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

My name is George Couros, and I am currently a Division Principal of Innovative Teaching and Learning with Parkland School Division, located in Stony Plain, Alberta, Canada. The schools are from ages K-12, and I love working with kids of all ages.

 

I am passionate about distributed leadership within my division, and believe that creating a collaborative environment with all stakeholders, will help to ensure that we meet the best needs of all children.

 

The term “master teacher” seems to get thrown around a lot, but is something that many educators aspire to be. In my ten years in the field of education, I would say that the definition of “master teacher” has definitely changed. When I think of a master teacher, here are the qualities that I would suggest they have:

 

1. Connects with kids first

2. Teaches kids first and curriculum second

3. Ensures that they draw relevance to curriculum

4. Works with students to develop a love of learning

5. Embodies lifelong learning

6. Focuses on learning goals as opposed to performance goals

7. Ensures that “character education” is an essential part of learning

8. Passionate about the content they teach

9. A master teacher is a “school teacher” -

10. Strong communication skills

The Complex Relationship Between Happiness and Motivation

The Complex Relationship Between Happiness and Motivation | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
Can too much happiness hurt motivation? Can too much motivation hurt happiness? How can we find a balance between happiness and motivation?

 

I guess it depends on your definition of happiness. If you define happiness as being fully satisfied and content with everything in your life, then there would never be anything you’re motivated to change.

 

Motivation implies a willingness to make something better. But if you’re happy with everything, then there is nothing you want to make better because everything is already fine the way it is.

[VIDEO] Earth's Magnetism

In order to illustrate the earth's magnetic field, three datasets for Earth's Magnetism have been created. All of these datasets show the changes in the magnetic field from 1590 - 2010. The first dataset shows the magnetic field lines at the surface of the Earth. The magnetic poles are indicated by stars. The blue lines show where the magnetic field dips into the Earth and the red lines show where the magnetic field emerges from the Earth. Where the field lines are horizontal to the Earth, between the red and blue lines, is the magnetic equator shaded yellow.

How Google & Technology is Changing Your Brain’s Rote Memory (The Google Effect Study)

How Google & Technology is Changing Your Brain’s Rote Memory (The Google Effect Study) | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

A recent study has confirmed that the search engine Google is changing your brain and altering the way it works, seriously. But then again, this really shouldn’t come as a surprise since any new technology is going to change the way that our neurons fire and brain works. Anyways, a group of people got money for a study called “The Google Effect” led by Betsy Sparrow at Columbia University. Findings from the study led by Betsy were published in the popular journal, “Science.”

 

How is Google changing your brain? What did The Google Effect study find?

 

Contrary to popular myth that using the internet is making people dumber, that wasn’t what the researchers found. What they found was the fact that using the Google search engine causes the brain to reorganize its memories for information. Instead of relying on what is called “Rote memory,” people are using new technology such as their computers and Google to get the job done. In other words, instead of people using their brains directly to pull up information are basically saying, “I can just quick go Google it instead of try to test my memory.”

A Carefully Selected List of Recommended Tools

A Carefully Selected List of Recommended Tools | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
When I meet with people and talk about our work, I get asked a lot what technology we use to create interactive and dynamic data visualizations.

At Interactive Things, we have a set of preferred libraries, applications and services that we use regularly in our work. We will select the most fitting tool for the job depending on the requirements of the project. Sometimes a really simple tool is all you need to create something meaningful. On other occasions, a more multifaceted repertoire is needed. But how does one choose the right thing to use? An endless list of every tool available, does not answer that question and a recommendation from a friend is oftentimes more valuable.

That’s why we have put together a selection of tools that we use the most and that we enjoy working with. We called it selection.datavisualization.ch. It includes libraries for plotting data on maps, frameworks for creating charts, graphs and diagrams and tools to simplify the handling of data. Even if you’re not into programming, you’ll find applications that can be used without writing one single line of code. We will keep this list as a living repository and add / remove things as technology develops...

Understanding the Concept Behind Infographics

Understanding the Concept Behind Infographics | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
Content has its own importance on a website however; mostly people judge an entire website over images and graphics used. So, the images used on a website should convey your basic message and purpose of the website.

If there is a complex piece of information which should be delivered to a viewer in a simpler manner, Infographics are a way to do so. Used by technical writers, statisticians and many others to simplify the process of conveying a complex message. At times, presenting too much of information in written form can confuse the viewer and also it gets time taking. So, in such cases Infographics assist in understanding...

A few elements are required for Infographics. First of all you should have a clear knowledge about the message you want to deliver. Once you are sure of that, you would require color coding, graphics, reference icons, time frames, statistics and off course references...
