5 great Video Clips to Learn more about PLNs ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

"The advancement of digital media and the emergence of new communication modes have changed some of our literacy practices and consequently reshaped the way we learn . The learning resources available today are limitlessly diverse and in most of the times with no gatekeepers to control who can access what .

Digital technologies have created opportunities for individuals to create, distribute, and read multimodal texts with ease and enthusiasm. Engagement in such a participatory and collaborative culture is deemed necessary for developing one's "educated or literate self". In fact such participation is the core foundational precept behind the concept of personal/ professional  learning network."

Christopher Pappas's curator insight, November 8, 2013 11:05 AM

Planning an online course takes a great deal of work up front. You have to create an online infrastructure for learning to take place (the learning management system (LMS)). You have to plan a syllabus for the online environment. You have to plan assignments and assessment. And, you have to develop a calendar with attainable weekly tasks.

Ideas for Using iPads for Digital Storytelling - MindShift

Ideas for Using iPads for Digital Storytelling - MindShift | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

"The following is the first of a series of excerpts from Glickman’s book iPad in Education for Dummies.

 

The digital aspect of storytelling raises the art to a new level of experience. The emergence of technology and digital media has resulted in some significant departures from the traditional role of storytelling in education: Stories have become media-rich experiences. Billions of mobile devices are in the hands of people worldwide, and an ever-increasing percentage of those devices contain video cameras, still cameras, and microphones. Whenever anything of personal significance happens, it can be captured and chronicled in digital media that we edit, process, and publish. Within minutes, that moment is available to friends and family around the world. Media has become the language of today."

Making lectures and lessons more interactive with mQlicker | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

As the traditional lecture has come increasingly under fire for being completely out of touch with modern teaching and learning methods, there has been a move by many teachers, conference presenters and lecturers to make their teaching techniques more modern and interactive. One of the key technologies for enabling this has been a range of audience response systems that provide real time responses to polls, questions and surveys while the speakers is actually presenting.

Chwayita Ceejay January's insight:'

A very interesting tool, that teachers can use inside and outside the formal learning area. Where students can interact with the information live during the lecture (where most interaction should happen anyway) closing the 'cold and insigificant' student-lecturer relationship. Students can respond to the data while the lecture is in progress. As expensive and time-consuming (training) this intiative would be to udertake it would certainly improve lecture attedance. :D

Changing your behaviour to develop a personal/professional learning network will be essential to thrive in an era of perpetual change.  The old focus on Continuing Professional Development is no longer fit for purpose and this video delivers  advice on creating a network  based on research

CedricBorzee's curator insight, January 22, 2014 5:01 PM

The author points 3 criteria for Learning Networks to emerge :

- user ownership

- user independence

- user self-determination 

 

Then 3 "values" - that could also be defined as "Attitudes"
- Trust 

- Openness

- Integrity

 

Last part is on how to "nurture" the right climate for Learning Networks to thrive.

Kleinspiration: 5 Creative Apps to Connect with Parents from your Classroom! | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

"Having a positive relationship with the parents of your students can help your year get off to a great start. I've found that parents often just want to feel connected and involved. Many potential issues can be resolved when they feel like they understand what is going on inside the classroom. As a parent, I know that my husband and I often feel the most uneasy when we don't know when an event is happening or how to help with an assignment. Therefore, as a teacher, I've searched for and tried out numerous tools to help be more proactive in the classroom to solve any issues before they evolve into problems. The feedback I've received from families has been overwhelmingly positive.  "
