5 Tools to Create Your Own Classroom AMA (Ask Me Anything) - FRACTUS LEARNING

5 Tools to Create Your Own Classroom AMA (Ask Me Anything) - FRACTUS LEARNING | education | Scoop.it
An AMA (Ask Me Anything) is a two way conversation first conceived on the social networking and news website Reddit. Essentially an AMA is an opportunity for people of interest to host their own Q&A session where users are encouraged to ‘ask them anything’. Questions can range from deadly serious to utterly ridiculous, and are voted up or down by users so that the most popular questions are answered first. More than just a fad on Reddit, there are a heap of ways you can run your own version of an AMA with interesting guests in your own classroom.

3 Things I learned from completing 60 MOOCs in 10 Months

3 Things I learned from completing 60 MOOCs in 10 Months | education | Scoop.it

"In January 2014 I started my first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) after reading a blogpost on Poets & Quants. I did not know back then this would be the start of the many MOOCs I would complete in the next 10 months. Over the course of these 10 months I learned 3 important things about this new way to gain knowledge."

That's a lot of MOOCs. But they vary in length and intensity so indeed possible. MOOCs have replaced TV for me. Naturally I choose MOOCs that I am interested in completing so I usually do complete them. That said, If I do not complete a MOOC, I can just take it again or walk away. No harm done. I'm finishing MOOC #9 now and will continue to do more. All are posted on my linkedin and degreed profile and eportfolio.

Excellent thoughts by this author. Traditional educational models are dinosaurs and if administrators do not get with technology and update curriculum to reflect online offerings they will be out of business within a decade.

John Briggs's curator insight, March 25, 2015 8:43 PM

While technology with the purpose to educate often gains due attention, a widely overlooked sub-section is that of teaching future generations how to create such technology. With the rapidly growing influence technology has over the human race, in order to progress this further, future generations must be able to understand and build upon prior developments, making these basic educational tools vital in introducing the fundamentals of how technology works to accommodate the increasing interest in this field.

Schools are failing our children simply because they are technophobes - Telegraph

Schools are failing our children simply because they are technophobes - Telegraph | education | Scoop.it

Teachers still stand up in front of pupils and read out from their own lesson plans; kids still turn up to classrooms, sit behind desks and listen, taking notes; assessments remain based on reports filed by teachers; exams are at set times, once a year. There is no systematic use of the internet, software or gaming technology to aid learning, no proper data analysis to monitor pupils’ progress and to understand better how to convey understanding, no automation, no economies of scale, no productivity gains, and no real progress.

Why is change so difficult in the culture of schooling? Is the passionate redesigning of learning spaces going to change teacher mindsets? 

John Laing's comment, July 22, 2013 7:09 PM
The problem is compulsory schooling.
Library Staff's curator insight, October 21, 2013 6:45 PM

Change has to happen in teacher mindset in order for there to be an impact in the classroom.
