What Teachers Want More than New Technologies? PD Opportunities To Learn to Use them Effectively - EdTechReview™ (ETR) | Education & Technology | Scoop.it

Without professional development that can give teachers the full practical knowledge on the use of technology, you will not see technology being successfully integrated in the classrooms for better learning.

Good points

I'm hearing you! A common problem with introducing new ideas or technologies. There is always a need for professional learning to help teachers feel comfortable with what is new.

CSCL Tools for Regulating Collaboration & Teamwork

Increasing emphasis on collaboration in academic and work contexts means learners are required to develop skills for regulating teamwork. The purpose of this study was to examine scripting and visualization tools for supporting regulation of shared task perceptions during a complex collaborative task. Prior to the task, groups engaged in individual and group planning using either (a) a scripting tool structuring regulation including task analysis, or (b) a scripting tool augmented with visualization of each member’s task perceptions. Findings indicated that, in both groups, shared task perceptions were generally accurate in relation to the instructor’s expectations. However, groups (a) struggled to construct consensus among diverse individual perceptions, (b) demonstrated little active and purposeful construction of shared task perceptions, and (c) encountered planning related challenges during collaboration. Groups showed small improvements across assignments, however, many difficulties re-occurred.

Exploring Online Discussions - Raw research notes and article annotations

Abstract (pasted from AERA 2013 program)

This study investigated relationships between how students “listen” (access existing posts) and “speak” (contribute posts) in asynchronous online discussions. Eleven variables indexing four dimensions of student’s listening (breadth, depth, temporal contiguity and revisitation) and five variables indexing three dimensions of students’ speaking (discursiveness, depth of content, and reflectivity) were calculated for 31 students participating in six week-long online discussions as part of an undergraduate educational psychology course. Multiple regression analysis indicated that the breadth of students’ listening (the percentage of peers’ posts viewed) predicted both the responsiveness and argumentative quality of their posts, but the depth with which they attended to the posts (time spent viewing) did not. Implications for the theory and practice of online discussions are discussed.

Self-Regulated Learning: Where We Are and Where We Might Go

Mariel Miller's insight:

by Dale H. Schunk, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro


"Self-regulated learning research in education has increased dramatically in the past several years. The history of the discipline reveals three eras, each with a dominant theme: development, intervention, and operation...Although research on each of these themes is likely to continue, to advance the field of educational self-regulated learning it is recommended that researchers devote greater attention to self-regulated learning in informal settings, of related academic skills, and in groups"

Learning Styles: Concepts and Evidence

Mariel Miller's insight:

"The contrast between the enormous popularity of the learning-styles approach within education and the lack of credible evidence for its utility is, in our opinion, striking and disturbing. If classification of students’ learning styles has practical utility, it remains to be demonstrated"

Learning Management Systems Comparison Checklist of Features

Are you looking for a new Learning Management System? Would you be interested in a LMSs comparison checklist? At the following article you will find a list of 99 LMS features that you can use to compare LMS Vendors.

 

At the eLearning Industry we see an increasing number of LMS vendors that continuously strengthen and improve their LMS solutions. However, with some many LMS providers and 1000+ of LMS solutions at the global eLearning market it is really hard to find the Best LMS solution that fits your specific requirements.

 

What are the most important features in a Learning Management System?

Do Learners Really Know Best? Urban Legends in Education

Mariel Miller's insight:

New article on three pervasive urban legends in education:

 

1) learners as digital natives who form a generation of students knowing by nature how to learn from new media, and for whom “old” media and methods used in teaching/learning no longer work.

 

2)  learners have specific learning styles and education should be individualized to match the preferred style of the learner.

 

3)  learners ought to be seen as self-educators who should be given maximum control over what they are learning and their learning trajectory.

12 learning management system providers and what they bring to classrooms

12 learning management system providers and what they bring to classrooms | Education & Technology | Scoop.it

By Roger Riddell

 

"Learning management systems (LMSs) have become an indispensable part of higher education, as well as many K-12 and business environments. The $1.9 billion LMS market is diverse, too, encompassing in-house systems, open source options and out-of-the-box setups.

 

"Online programs from providers such as the University of Phoenix, Coursera and edX have stirred up change in higher ed in recent years, but even as they continue to shake things up, leading LMS providers such as Blackboard, Moodle and Desire2Learn have established broader groups of clientele and adapted.

 

"Here's a look at 12 of the biggest names among LMS providers, as well as how they have distinguished themselves and what they provide"

New Frontiers: Regulating Learning in CSCL

 New Frontiers: Regulating Learning in CSCL  (Sanna Järvelä & Allyson F. Hadwin) now available online in the Special Issue: Theoretical Underpinnings of Successful Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning. Educational Psychologist, Vol. 48, No. 1, 01 Jan 2013.

Abstract: Despite intensive research in computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) over the last decade, there is relatively little research about how groups and individuals in groups engage, sustain, support, and productively regulate collaborative processes. This article examines the role of regulatory processes in collaborative learning and how CSCL environments can be used for shared regulation of learning. First, we establish the importance of regulation processes and introduce three types of regulation contributing to successful collaboration: self-, co-, and socially shared regulation of learning. Second, we illuminate two strands of seemingly diverse research that lay an important foundation for supporting and researching regulation in CSCL contexts establishing that (a) computer-based pedagogical tools used to successfully support regulation in individual learning contexts can be leveraged for collaborative task contexts, and (b) computer-based tools for supporting collaborative knowledge construction can be leveraged for supporting regulatory processes. Finally, we draw on emerging research in our own programs of research to demonstrate how regulation can be supported and researched in CSCL environments. The article concludes by charting a course for future CSCL research focused on supporting regulated learning in collaborative task contexts.
