Six Principles of Effective e-Learning: What Works and Why by Ruth Clark : Learning Solutions Magazine

Six Principles of Effective e-Learning: What Works and Why by Ruth  Clark : Learning Solutions Magazine | Books | Scoop.it

"For the past ten years, Richard Mayer and his colleagues at the University of California at Santa Barbara have conducted a series of controlled experiments on how to best use audio, text, and graphics to optimize learning in multimedia. Six media element principles can be defined based on Mayer’s work. What follows is a summary of these principles along with supporting examples, psychological rationale, and research."

I like these principles (and I like that there is some research to establish why they work)

Phil Turner's curator insight, September 19, 2013 7:00 PM

Not enough references, and not direct references, which is what my "yet to be convinced" colleagues are looking for ... but the principles are logical and probably good starting points for a bit of further reading and discussion in development workshops for professional development of higher ed teachers

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, September 22, 2013 1:13 PM

Take any e-Lesson — show it to five people and ask them what they think. My bet is you will get five different opinions about the quality of the courseware. But, wait! What if the five reviewers are educational “experts” — specialists with advanced degrees in training and education? Now you might expect a greater consensus. Based on my experience over the past three years reviewing courses with experts, I predict a little more agreement; but it’s not likely to be anything close to a consensus.

At first I wasn't so sure about the layout and colors, but I've gotten quiet used to it already. I do like the accordion feature when on Safari.

The Early Literacy Shift: New Words, New Media, New Friends

The Early Literacy Shift: New Words, New Media, New Friends | Books | Scoop.it

And when I had to explain why iPod didn’t start with an upper case letter the way proper nouns usually did, well, I decided all of the rules were up for grabs. The changes I have mentioned are rather superficial, but they are indicators of a large shift that has been taking place in the way that I teach literacy.

Having students use technology in many different ways is a great idea. My children enjoy being able to video chat and skype with their daddy because he is overseas, and they study different words or lessons that they are going over to not only keep him involved but also so they can have the experience of having their daddy help them with school work as well.

Phonics Studio - A Great App for Learning to Pronounce Words

Phonics Studio - A Great App for Learning to Pronounce Words | Books | Scoop.it

"Phonics Studio is a free iPad app that has received glowing reviews from speech-language pathologists. The app provides more than 2,500 flashcards that students can use to practice pronouncing more than 200 sounds. After opening the app students select a letter from the alphabet then a sound. Each sound has a collection of flashcards. To practice pronunciation students can listen to a recording and then create their own recordings (open the preferences panel to turn on the built-in recordings). The person working with a student can mark the student’s recording correct or incorrect."

This is a great application to use! My son currently uses this app and I can tell that while he enjoys it, he is also learning.
Mike Dilger's curator insight, September 22, 2013 6:02 AM

May be useful for some classrooms.
