One of the basic aims of education in general is to teach us how to be a life long researcher, how to discover new fountains of knowledge and illuminate our lives. Knowledge itself is based on research and every discipline be it philosophy, science, technology, art or humanities, they all have one common pillar which is research.

Talk to Me - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Higher Education | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

The moral? Shy students are not necessarily lazy or indifferent or hopeless. I have encountered a few superbright undergraduates who simply do not deign to bother conversing with their inferior classmates—and I am prepared to come down hard on them. Most of the "mutes," however, wish they could speak, and some of them desperately want to do so. In my own case, threats and ridicule were counterproductive—and I suspect that, especially at nonposh colleges, that is true more often than not.

Abstract

K-12 online learning and cyber charter schools have grown at a tremendous rate over the past decade. At the same time, these online programs have struggled to provide the social spaces where students can interact that K-12 schools are traditionally able to provide. Social networking presents a unique opportunity to provide these kinds of social interactions in an online environment. In this article, we trace the development and use of social networking at one cyber charter school to extend the space for online instruction and provide opportunities for social interaction that online schools are often unable to provide.

Teaching Copyright- A MUST READ!

Teaching Copyright- A MUST READ! | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

This curriculum is designed to give teachers a comprehensive set of tools to educate students about copyright while incorporating activities that exercise a variety of learning skills. Lesson topics include: the history of copyright law; the relationship between copyright and innovation; fair use and its relationship to remix culture; peer-to-peer file sharing; and the interests of the stakeholders that ultimately affect how copyright is interpreted by copyright owners, consumers, courts, lawmakers, and technology innovators.

 

The lesson plan concludes with a mock trial that tests the students' understanding of copyright and its limitations and encourages them to consider the positions of each party involved.

The Pope is now on twitter! The first tweet from the summit of Mt Everest also happened recently.

In the best case scenario, Twitter is a great vehicle for connecting, sharing resources, and personal and professional learning. The key is separating the good from the bad.
