Facilitating Collaborative Learning: 20 Things You Need to Know From the Pros
There is an age old adage that says “two heads are better than one”.  Consider collaboration in recent history:  Watson and Crick or Page and Brin (Founders of Google).

But did you know it was a collaborative Computer Club about basic programming at a middle school that brought together two minds that would change the future of computing?  Yes, those two were of course, Bill Gates and Paul Allen, the founders of Microsoft.

As an educator facilitating collaborative learning might be a challenge at times. Sometimes individuals don't want to work with certain other people or sometimes some are too shy and don't really contribute. Whatever the challenge these great tips can help us improve our strategy.

Three Good Tools for Building Flipped Lessons That Include Assessment Tools | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

In the right setting the flipped classroom model can work well for some teachers and students. I recently received an email from a reader who was looking for a recommendation for a tool would enable her to add an assessment aspect to her flipped lesson. Here are some tools that can accomplish that goal.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 12, 2014 8:53 PM

Are you interested in flipping part of your class and would like to know some tools that would also allow you to add assessments to videos. Richard Byrne has three suggestions and all are free!

*eduCanon - Quoting from the post "eduCanon allows teachers to build flipped lessons using YouTube and Vimeo videos, create questions about the videos, then assign lessons to their students."

*Teachem uses the TED-Ed model. Choose videos that are hosted on YouTube. Add questions and comments. Videos may be public or private.

*Knowmia is a website and iPad app and their website has over 17,000 videos that you may use. You may also create your own. Knowmia has been designed for teachers and students and provides an Assignmen Wizard and is adding additional  features.

If you looking for a tool that allows you to flip a lesson and also include an assessment these three provide a variety of options. Have fun exploring and finding the one that will work best for you.

Flipping Blooms Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice

Flipping Blooms Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

In media studies we often look at the creation of print and digital advertisements. Traditionally, students learn many of the foundational principles for creating a layout through a lecture or text book reading, and then eventually create their own.

What if we started with creativity rather than principles?


Via JackieGerstein Ed.D., Mario Zidar
Ulrike Grabe's insight:

Who ever suggested Bloom's taxonomy as a pyramid that required to master the bottom levels before the top ones?

 

Putting 'creating' first is the logical manifestation of action-oriented teaching.

Zudem sollen Leistungen, die Studierende online erbracht haben, im Rahmen der Studien- und Prüfungsordnungen anerkannt werden. Um das Online-Angebot der Hochschulen zu verbreitern, wird auch die Lehrverpflichtungsverordnung (LVVO) geändert: Lehrende sollen bis zu 25% ihrer Lehrverpflichtung durch Online-Veranstaltungen erfüllen können.

Sugata Mitra has opened the doors of the world’s first School in the Cloud. A look at it and what happens there. Located inside George Stephenson High School in Killingworth, England, this one-room learning lab is a space where students can embark on their own learning adventures, exploring whatever questions most intrigue them. Students even designed the interior of the space — which has colorful beanbags scattered throughout and (very appropriately) fluffy clouds painted on the walls.
