Kellie Wheatley's curator insight, May 9, 2017 9:25 PM

A great site for outlining the implementation of technology in the classroom. It outlines the most effective integration methods and appropriate situations for certain digital formats and platforms. 

It details the need for personalised learning through flexibility, progression and individuality, all of which are based off modern learning methods. In specific regards to technology, this article explains:

- virtual classrooms

- audio and video integration

- data interpreting

- student mentoring

- transitioning from consumers to producers (more hands-on)

- truth vs untruth

- social environments of learning (an online presence)

- learning camps (a place to find individuality)

- transitioning through schools (students, environments and        teachers)


These ideas are important to consider, particularly for pre-service teachers like myself. These are key aspects to students being able to move forward in regards to technology, and this publication outlines all of that. The aspects which I found most beneficial, and that I could relate to were the transitioning from consumers to producers and teaching through transitions of the schooling system. Both of these promote a more hands-on classroom with students being able to apply their skills, while being taught and supported by their teacher.

Terry Smith's curator insight, June 9, 2017 5:32 PM
I re-scooped this article specifically because it deals with how technology has influenced personalized learning particularly in online environments.  The article goes through the various ways that technology is reshaping, adapting and enhancing how students learn.

7 mitos y realidades sobre la formación online.

 

Mito nro. 1, no se puede obtener un empleo acreditando un diploma logrado mediante aprobación de cursos en línea.  Reaalidad: 62% de los profesionales de RRHH creen que los diplomas obtenidos por cursos online son equivalentes o mejores que los logrados en universidades tradicionales.

 

Mito nro 2, sólo universidades de dudosa reputación ofrecen programas que se imparten totalmente en línea. Realidad: el porcentaje de instituciones que ofrecen programas completamente virtuales se ha duplicado en la última década hasta alcanzar 62.4%.

 

Mito nro. 3, los programas virtuales contribuyen con el aislamiento de sus estudiantes. Realidad: los cursos distribuídos en el formato presencial tradicional pueden también incentivar el aislamiento.

 

Mito nro. 4, obtener un diploma en línea es tomar el camino fácil. Realidad: si bien es cierto que el formato eLearning es más flexible, ello no significa que los cursos dictados en ésta modalidad sean menos rigurosos.

 

Mito nro. 5, "Tengo todo el tiempo del mundo para culminar mi curso online". Realidad: si intenta retrazar indefinidamente el cumplimiento de las tareas asignadas en un curso online, muy problamente, no superá ese curso. La procastinación no funciona el mundo real ni en el virtual.

 

Mito nro. 6, usted no aprenderá mucho tomando cursos vía eLearning. Realidad: investigaciones recientes indican que no hay diferencias significativas entre los resultados de aprendizaje por estudios virtuales y el método presencial tradicional.

 

Mito nro. 7, puedo hacer fraude en los programas de formación online. Realidad: muchas escuelas online han implementado sistemas de protección antifraude. Algunas otras exigen la realización de exámenes presenciales a sus alumnos. ¡ El gran hermano siempre está observando...!

How to Humanize Your Online Class (Infographic and slideshow) | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Humanized learning increases the relevance of content and improves students' motivation to log-in week-after-week. When students relate to an online instructor as something more than a subject matter expert and begin to conceive of themselves as part of a larger community, they are more likely to be motivated, be satisfied with their learning, and succeed in achieving the course objectives (Picciano, 2002; Rovai & Barnum, 2003;  Richardson & Swan, 2003).
