Over 180,000 manuscripts, maps, photographs, sheet music, lithographs, postcards, and other images were released online Wednesday in incredibly high resolution, and are available to download using the library's user-friendly visualization tool.

7 musts for digital and OER course materials - eCampus News

7 musts for digital and OER course materials - eCampus News | Wireless Seminary | Scoop.it
With the emergence of digital learning materials and open educational resources (OER), instructors have a wealth of instructional course materials at their fingertips. But just because something is free and in digital format doesn’t mean it passes muster.

“At some institutions the review and selection of course materials involves faculty collaboration and a shared responsibility to ensure course materials meet agreed-upon learning goals for students. Ideally, the decision on which course materials to use is based on the needs of the faculty teaching the course and the desired learning outcomes for the often diverse group of students taking the course,” according to a course materials guide from the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA).

The guide offers a brief overview of OER and notes that there are always costs associated with free materials, such as costs to reproduce resources or costs associated with the manpower necessary to maintain an OER repository. Despite the costs, though, OER are a viable option for course materials.

4 Things All Project-Based Learning Teachers Should Do -

4 Things All Project-Based Learning Teachers Should Do - | Wireless Seminary | Scoop.it
Gone are the days when students were expected to sit passively at desks while teachers lectured endlessly, expecting children to soak up the information being thrown at them. In today’s educational environment, students are expected to collaborate, think critically, and work together to develop innovative projects and answers to complex questions.


To support this mission, many schools have begun to take part in a practice known as Project-Based Learning (PBL). PBL allows teachers to expose students to a wide variety of 21st Century skills, and allows students to interact with curriculum in a way that is engaging, authentic, and fun!

Making a shift from traditional forms of learning to PBL can be challenging. PBL can require a lot of prep work on the part of the teacher. But the gains in student engagement and achievement are immeasurable. Here are four steps to help you create a Project Based-Learning classroom

The Critical Thinking Skills Cheatsheet [Infographic]

The Critical Thinking Skills Cheatsheet [Infographic] | Wireless Seminary | Scoop.it

"Critical thinking skills truly matter in learning. Why? Because they are life skills we use every day of our lives. Everything from our work to our recreational pursuits, and all that’s in between, employs these unique and valuable abilities. Consciously developing them takes thought-provoking discussion and equally thought-provoking questions to get it going. Begin right here with the Critical Thinking Skills Cheatsheet. 


It’s a simple infographic offering questions that work to develop critical thinking on any given topic. Whenever your students discover or talk about new information, encourage them to use these questions for sparking debate and the sharing of opinions and insights among each other. Together they can work at building critical thinking skills in a collaborative and supportive atmosphere."

"Students at Maricopa Community Colleges (MCC) in Arizona have done just as well academically with open educational resources (OER) as with traditional, high-priced textbooks.      In addition, students and faculty are more engaged in teaching and learning in courses that use OER, which are free or low-cost teaching and learning materials, and students are more likely to complete degrees faster.  Those benefits, as well as the cost savings, could be used in marketing efforts aimed at encouraging more students to enroll, according to OER advocates."

Technology in our days is a very important component in education, even for children with special needs, education must be updated, fun and easy to learn.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, February 9, 12:56 AM
This is a comprehensive list which contains 1000 apps for learners with special needs. The list which is compiled by the folks in a4cwsn, is a fruit of a collaborative work between a large body of professionals including: speech education teachers, speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, music therapists, guidance councillors and social workers, sign language interpreters and many more.
Elvire Fs's curator insight, Today, 5:18 AM
The 1000 apps for learners with special needs are very interesting, since I work with special needs and I am in the process to integrate them with other kids. They do interact with different kids of apps that help them develop their motor skills, their language skills, as well as spacial orientation as well. for sure some are more effective than other, but the impact on them is impressive.

What the Heck Is Inquiry-Based Learning?

What the Heck Is Inquiry-Based Learning? | Wireless Seminary | Scoop.it
Inquiry-based learning is more than asking a student what he or she wants to know. It’s about triggering curiosity. And activating a student’s curiosity is, I would argue, a far more important and complex goal than the objective of mere information delivery.

Nevertheless, despite its complexity, inquiry-based learning can be somehow easier on teachers, too. True, it’s seemingly easier because it transfers some responsibilities from teachers to students, but it’s really easier because releasing authority engages students.

Teachers who use inquiry-based learning combat the “dunno” -- a chronic problem in student engagement. 

Let’s face it, when you ask a student something like, “What do you want to know about _______?” you are often met with a shrug, or a, “dunno.” Inquiry-based learning, if front-loaded well, generates such excitement in students that neurons begin to fire, curiosity is triggered, and students can’t wait to become experts in answering their own questions.

10 ways to find global connections for your class - Ditch That Textbook | Wireless Seminary | Scoop.it
Taking classes global is one of my favorite ways that technology redefines what education can do.

It boggles the mind to think that a classroom, individual or place can be thousands of miles away but close enough virtually to engage in face-to-face conversation.

With communication tools like Google Hangouts, Skype and FaceTime, virtually anyone with an Internet connection can be reached from a classroom.
