What will you make:

In this article, we will learn how to monitor temperature and humidity with your smartphone device, using a platform called Blynk. Blynk allows you to control Arduino, ESP8266, Raspberry Pi and other such boards through their iOS and Android apps. It provides an easy to use dashboard through which you can monitor various sensors and control actuators. If you are completely new to Blynk, checkout our Getting Started with Blynk guide.

Plagiarism, Internet and Academic Success at the University | Torres-Diaz | Journal of New Approaches in Educational Research

Plagiarism, Internet and Academic Success at the University | Torres-Diaz | Journal of New Approaches in Educational Research | Learning @ the speed of another change | Scoop.it
In this work, we determined, the level of incidence of the use of technologies on academic success and the incidence of interaction and experience on the level of plagiarism of university students. A sample of 10,952 students from 31 face-to-face universities in Ecuador was created. Students were classified based on their experience level, level of interaction with teachers and classmates, and the use they do with technology for academic activities. The results showed that the level of experience does not affect academic success, but does have an incidence on plagiarism levels that increase as this experience increases. Plagiarism reaches higher levels when level of experience, family income and hours of connection per day increases. Academic performance depends on the number of hours that students seek information and the number of academic videos they watch. Also, plagiarism tends to decrease as the student makes better use of technology for their academic activities.

Learning Analytics and Student Success

Learning Analytics and Student Success | Learning @ the speed of another change | Scoop.it

What are learning analytics? How do you use them? And how do you evaluate which features you’ll need to help your students succeed?

If you teach, you should be able to make sense of learning analytics. And decide what’s useful to you. You just need to ask the right questions.

How Blockchain Will Transform Credentialing (and Education)

How Blockchain Will Transform Credentialing (and Education) | Learning @ the speed of another change | Scoop.it
According to a new report by the Joint Research Centre (JRC), the European Commission's science and knowledge service, Blockchain will end paper based certificates, automate the award, recognition and transfer of credits, increase learner ownership and control over their own data, reduce institutional data costs and risk--but only if open standards are adopted.

The JRC report points to likely benefits from blockchain including:
Self-sovereignty: users identify themselves while maintaining control over the storage and management of their personal data;
Trust: infrastructure that gives people enough confidence in its operations to carry through with transactions such as payments or the issue of certificates;
Transparency: conduct transactions in knowledge that each party has the capacity to enter into that transaction;
Immutability: records written and stored permanently without the possibility of modification;
Disintermediation: removal of the need for a central controlling authority to manage transactions or keep records; and
Collaboration: the ability of parties to transact directly with each other without the need for mediating third parties.

A tale of two MOOCs: How student motivation and participation predict learning outcomes in different MOOCs | Brooker | Australasian Journal of Educational Technology

A tale of two MOOCs: How student motivation and participation predict learning outcomes in different MOOCs | Brooker | Australasian Journal of Educational Technology | Learning @ the speed of another change | Scoop.it
Recent scholarly discussions about massive open online courses (MOOCs) highlight pedagogical and practical issues that separate MOOCs from other learning settings, especially how theories of learning translate to MOOC students’ motivation, participation, and performance. What is missing from these discussions is the purpose of the MOOC. We report a comparative study of two MOOCs that differ in educational purpose, but are similar in design. Our sample consisted of 983 students in a professional development MOOC, and 648 students in a MOOC focused on general interest. We first report differences between the two MOOCs, in terms of student demographics, achievement motivation, and participation. For each MOOC, we ran a two-stage regression analysis to determine the extent to which motivation variables (stage 1) and participation variables (stage 2) predicted performance. Patterns in demographic background and motivation differed in ways that were consistent with the MOOCs' purposes. Motivation and participation predicted performance, but this relationship differed between the two MOOCs and reflected the patterns of participation. Professional development motivation contributed to final grade in the professional development MOOC, but not the general interest MOOC. The findings have implications for how MOOC designers think about their target audience, and for students who aim for high final grades.

Continuous Formative Assessment

Continuous Formative Assessment | Learning @ the speed of another change | Scoop.it

Are your students ever surprised when they fail a test? Are you ever surprised that they didn’t seem to notice they’d been struggling with the homework? Or when they did notice but didn’t do anything about it?

Some students haven’t mastered the skills of noticing and understanding the patterns in their schoolwork. Or in knowing what to do if they get stuck.

Tech Tools for Student Success

Tech Tools for Student Success | Learning @ the speed of another change | Scoop.it

Students who don’t succeed struggle for a variety of different reasons. As educators, we owe it to them to understand why. And to see if there are specific problems that we can address.

Perhaps they’re first-generation college students who didn’t have anyone to teach them how to succeed in school. Maybe there are challenges at work or at home. Or they have a specific weakness, like memorization, that affects them in one class, but not all classes. Maybe they just lack confidence and give up on themselves too quickly.
