"Though educators are finding smart ways to integrate technology and learning, the road has been and continues to be challenging on multiple fronts. The NMC Horizon Report: 2012 K-12 Edition, a collaboration between the New Media Consortium, the Consortium for School Networking, and the International Society for Technology in Education, takes the birds-eye view and encapsulates some of the significant challenges that must still be addressed and offers the following assessment."

3 Ways to Make Your E-Learning Course Look Like a Comic Book

 

Comic book layouts are pretty popular. And they work well for elearning courses. For one, they look different. It’s that type of contrast that can hook your learners who might be bored with the standard-looking corporate elearning.

 

On top of that a comic-like layout breaks the content into panels which allows you to control the pacing and flow of information as each panel progressively reveals more. It’s a great way to still have the simplicity of a linear course, but make it seem more engaging.

Have Technology Will Travel: Fishing for Good Classroom Apps

Have Technology Will Travel: Fishing for Good Classroom Apps | Digital story telling in  EFL classes. | Scoop.it

One of my all time favorite, educationally appropriate proverb...


"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."

Everyone knows this proverb, but its applications go so far beyond fishing.  If I share with a teacher an amazing website that she can use that day in class, both she and her student's will benefit that day.  If I teach her how to use Twitter and RSS feeds to find resources for herself, she will be so much further along.  The same goes for iOS apps.  I am often asked "what apps should I download?"  That is a very subjective question.   The idea behind this post is to provide classroom teachers with some good fishing holes where they can return time and again to "fish" for new and useful classroom apps.

Teaching Students to Become Curators of Ideas: The Curation Project

Teaching Students to Become Curators of Ideas: The Curation Project | Digital story telling in  EFL classes. | Scoop.it
As part of the social media class, my students are required to set up a network of online mentors using social media tools. They have to identify experts in their field and connect with them in order to build a personal learning network (PLN). One of the goals of the PLN is to connect them to resources they might not have otherwise discovered. In other words, their PLN is designed to help them discover valuable information through social search rather than regular search (i.e. a Google search). It’s designed to bring information and resources to them that have been vetted by other Internet users, not just an algorithm. This semester, I asked my students to “curate” that information the way a museum curator would curate an art exhibit. I told them they would need to comb through the resources received through their PLN to discover the significant and relevant, bundle those ideas together, contextualize them for their audience, repackage them and share them through a social media platform. I suggested they use one of the following free services: Scoop.it, paper.li, Storify, or Storyful and strongly encouraged them to follow the 8 steps to successful content curation discussed in class (see slides below).

Did You Know that a Book is also a Tool!?

Did You Know that a Book is also a Tool!? | Digital story telling in  EFL classes. | Scoop.it

Gust MEES: In 21st Century we are mostly looking for online tools and we forget about the best tool we can have, a book! Do you still know what a book looks like!?

 

I read a lot, must have +/- 1,000 books at home, not counting the magazines of different Topics... I am a Life Long Learner (Hashtag #LLL) and it is a pleasure for me to  read a book, especially in summer time... I "eat" them actually, brain food ;)

 

I suggest to you to take a break from Internet and to read some times also a book and to use it as a tool also; thus meaning:

 

Read it quick, make some bookmarking, higlight the interested parts of it... write something (your ideas, thoughts...) close to the parts who made your interest and later on you read the book again, ONLY your personal remarks, highlited stuff and...

 

You will then remark how good a book is as a tool, an "Offline Tool"! OK, you won't be able to resell it (don't think for once at the commercial...), but at least you will have learned something and after a certain time when reading again as you might have a look on it for further researches (brain doesn't memorize everything...) your valuable remarks bring you back to your "old" thoughts and way for further thinking...!

 

My book selection in EN, FR, DE (books I read already over the last 10 years...):

 

French language:


- Les outils d’excellence du formateur (Sophie COURAU)


- La boîte à outils du formateur (Dominique BEAU)


- Animer un stage de formation (Nicolas JOUSSE)


- Au bon plaisir d’apprendre (Bruno HOURST)… (Re)trouver la faculté d’apprendre avec le sourire


- Modèles de jeux de formation (Bruno HOURST et Sivasailam THIAGARAJAN)


- Savoirs professionnels et curriculum de formation (Yves LENOIR/Marie-Hélène BOUILLIER-OUDOT)


- Ce que manager par projet veut dire (Alain ASQUIN/Christophe FALCOZ/Thierry PICQ)


- Le syndrome de l’autruche (Rober GOBERT)


- Le syndrome de l’écureuil (Robert GOBERT)


- À l’école des intelligences multiples (Bruno HOURST)


- Les 5 formes d’intelligence (Howard GARDNER)


- Intégrer les intelligences multiples dans votre école (Thomas-R. HOERR)


- Aidez votre enfant à mieux apprendre (Bruno HOURST)


- À reculons, comme une écrevisse : Guerres chaudes et populisme médiatique (Umberto ECO)


- Guide pratique de l’écrivain (Paul DESALMAND)


- Publier son livre (Nicolas DELECOURT/Laurence HAPPE-DURIEUX)


- Le livre de la sagesse de Confucius (Les grands textes spirituels/Éditions du Rocher)


- Les entretiens de Confucius (Connaissances de l’orient/GALLIMARD)


German language (Deutsch)


- EQ2: Der Erfolgs Quotient (Daniel GOLEMAN)


- Lernen und Gehirn /Der Weg zu einer neuen Pädagogik (Herder Spektrum)


- EQ: Emotionale Intelligenz (Daniel GOLEMAN)


- Emotionale Kompetenz (Claude STEINER)


- Soziale Intelligenz. Wer auf andere zugehen kann, hat mehr vom Leben Daniel GOLEMAN)


- Die Welt der neuen Kinder/Erziehen im Informations-Zeitalter (Wolfgang BERGMANN)


- Abschied vom Gewissen/Die Seele ind der digitalen Welt (Wolfgang BERGMANN)


English language


- Homo Zappiens/Growing up in a digital age (Wim VEEN and Ben VRAKKING)


- 5 Minds For The Future (Howard GARDNER)


I met personaly Bruno HOURST, Robert GOBERT and Wim VEEN and I am working since eight years (2010), giving courses about ICT (mostly for adults and seniors, but also for young people) based on Howard GARDNER’s and Daniel GOLEMAN’s knowledge…

 

===> By having understood the context of those books you will be able to: A win-win situation between course instructor (coach) and learners which brings out a maximum to the learner, the most important… And ALSO you will get Critical-Thinking Skills...<===

 

BTW: these books are still "in" and will give you valuable information about the digital age of learning and how people are learning...
