SCORM vs Tin Can - Tin Can API

SCORM vs Tin Can - Tin Can API | Using Technology in Education | Scoop.it
SCORM vs The Tin Can API. What are the differences? Why should I choose Tin Can over SCORM?

Via Danielle M. Villegas
Mike Carrington's insight:

Yet another e-learning development to follow! I have always found SCORM, in its many incarnations, to be a pain to use. Hopefully this won't be true of the Tin Can API.

It's been a while since I've posted anything "hardcore" for e-learning, but I saw this on Learning Anyway's Facebook page, and thought it was definitely worth sharing. I don't know how long this site has been up, but it looks fantastic! Check it out for more information.

Danielle is correct! This site is full of terrific information about Tin Can API. I believe you need to check this out if you have issues with tracking your employees training and C.E.U's. Tin Can makes it simple by providing a management system capable of tracking ALL of your employee's learning experiences in and out side of work. Tremendous advancement in training and e-learning.

Mike Carrington's insight:
I love this idea of crowd-sourcing data. Obviously very relevant to biology, but could also be used in chemistry, particularly for small groups.

The Art of Asking Questions

The Art of Asking Questions | Using Technology in Education | Scoop.it
At one time or another, most of us have been disappointed by the caliber of the questions students ask in class, online, or in the office. Many of them are such mundane questions: “Will material from the book be on the exam?” “How long should the paper be?” “Can we use Google to find references?” “Would you repeat what you just said? I didn’t get it all down in my notes.” Rarely do they ask thoughtful questions that probe the content and stir the interest of the teacher and other students.
Mike Carrington's insight:

Not the definitive guide to classroom questioning - but it does have some ideas that might make you think before going into the classroom under-prepared.

Tyler DeWitt’s FlipCon 2016 Keynote Speech was Inspiring and Fun, and Full of Truths we Need Embrace When asked what he does for a living, Tyler likes to introduce himself to new people by saying, “I make YouTube videos” …
Mike Carrington's insight:
Nice discussion of how and why to flip, but I worry about the suggestion that accuracy is unimportant in comparison to engagement. Both are important and lack of accuracy, particularly if not flagged, leads to disengagement later when students complain about having to unlearn material.
