Educational Technology Buzzwords

Educational Technology Buzzwords | E-Learning Today | Scoop.it

Education buzzwords have for a long time driven me insane as we spend our lives in schools latching on to phrase after phrase that tries to make us sound more knowledgeable without actually being more knowledgeable. I fear sometimes us “tech geeks” in schools ( definitely me included) are getting caught in the same trap as we move from one innovation to the next just to look more tech savvy than the next guy. This is a long list of edtech trends and pedagogies. It can seem quite daunting to the uninitiated and we can scare them off trying something really useful if keep pushing for more change.

Professors shouldn't be afraid of online learning (essay) | Inside Higher Ed

Professors shouldn't be afraid of online learning (essay) | Inside Higher Ed | E-Learning Today | Scoop.it

Inside Higher Ed’s survey about faculty views of online education is on point. Since I had participated by filling out the survey, I was curious about its findings. My interest surged after reading the related article by Steve Kolowich -- who noted that for professors “the rise of online education excites them more than it frightens them.” According to the survey’s composite data, I fit the profile of Academic Everyman. So, to flesh out the statistical bones, here are some observations by an archetypal Old Prof who wonders as he wanders through the new terrain of distance learning.

Group work, group projects and collaborative learning encourage students to learn from other students as well as from the lecturer. Peer learning may involve cooperation, communication and the giving and receiving of peer feedback. In addition peer learning emphasises the sharing of knowledge and ideas between students in a reciprocal partnership. However, some educators ask individual students to formally assess each other within the context of a group project which may inhibit the very process of peer learning that they are attempting to promote. This paper, through the voices of three lecturers and their students, has attempted to reinforce the importance of learning-oriented peer assessment within technology-enhanced environments. This paper advocatesm the concept of learning-oriented peer assessment strategies to enhance student learning.
