The Hidden Barrier To Learning And What You Can Do About It

The Hidden Barrier To Learning And What You Can Do About It | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it
There is a hidden barrier that prevents people from learning - emotions. Instructional designers that fail to take into account the emotional barriers learners face will find their courses met with resistance. It’s important to account for emotions in the design process.

Mikko Hakala's curator insight, February 3, 2014 2:15 AM

Three aspects to consider to lower emotional barriers in e-learning: 

1. Proper expectations

2. Gamification

3. Idea of the benefits

Anna-Liisa Hayward's curator insight, February 3, 2014 10:33 AM

This article looks at the role of emotions in learning and their effect on motivation on e-learning. It could equally be applied to learning in general, a useful little summary.

I have been writing profusely on Blooms Taxonomy here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning but have never thought that Twitter can be tied to it until I came across this wonderful graphic from Teachbytes. Honestly I am so much inspired by the great work Aditi has been doing in her blog and particularly  this idea of connecting Twitter to Blooms Taxonomy has got me in AWE. Have a look at this graphic and share it with your colleagues. I am pretty sure you will love as much as I did.

Curate Your Own Wiki-Guide with the Wikipedia Book Create Tool

There are almost no limits when creating books from Wikipedia content. A good book focuses on a certain topic and covers it as well as possible. A meaningful title helps other users to have the correct expectation regarding the content of a book.

Bettina Ascaino's curator insight, January 25, 2014 7:16 AM

Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Few people know that it is actually possible to curate Wikipedia content into custom print books or PDF / OpenDocument ebooks that contain exactly the content you want in the order you specify.

 

Once you are logged into Wikipedia you simply activate the Book Creator Tool and then, from that moment on, everytime you visit a Wikipedia page you can click and add it to your curated Wiki-Book.

 

There is also a dedicated wiki page where you can manage the pages you have collected and you can reorganized and sort them any way you want, eliminating the pages you don't need.

 

Unfortunately there is no integrated way to edit and further customize the content of those pages for your own use.

 

PDF versions are freely downloadable by anyone, print book versions are paid.

 

N.B.: The price for print books depends on the number of pages, starting with US$ 7.90 for books up to 100 pages. 10% of the gross sales price goes to the Wikimedia Foundation. Books are perfect bound, printed in the dimensions 8.5 inch x 5.5 inch (216 mm x 140 mm) and contain a table of contents, your chapters and articles, licensing information next to an index.

 

More info about printed versions: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Books/Frequently_Asked_Questions ;

 

Free to use.

It's worth keeping in mind that some 'publishers' try to sell books based entirely on Wikipedia content.

What to know about 'The end of Education'

What to know about 'The end of Education' | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

The End of Education might stand to answer some questions of the school problems as Postman sees them as two dimensional. One is the engineering side of it, that is the means by which young people acquire an education. The other one is the metaphysical that is the underlying purpose or mission or the end of education. Postman believes that primary focus is mostly on the engineering aspect of the education today, while very little attention is paid to the metaphysics of schooling. He says “without a transcendent and honorable purpose schooling must reach its finish, and the sooner we are done with it, the better.” (p – x-xi).
