Educational Technology Buzzwords

Educational Technology Buzzwords | eLearning and eTeaching in the Humanities | 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.

 

PM - Gamification gets a mention!

Fable based learning

Fable based learning | eLearning and eTeaching in the Humanities | Scoop.it

Peter Stuckey and Jimmy Lee incorporated fable based learning into the design of their Basic and Advanced Modeling for Discrete Optimization (MDO) MOOCs.


Fable based learning creates a narrative strand that weaves the learning journey together for the learner. Each of the core videos in these courses starts with a short animation relating to a traditional Chinese fable, the ‘Romance of Three Kingdoms.’ In these animations learners are challenged with a problem that they need to solve. They are motivated to move onto the next video and chapter in the story by solving new problems in a gamified set of scenarios.

6 Signs of a Bad Online Instructor

6 Signs of a Bad Online Instructor | eLearning and eTeaching in the Humanities | Scoop.it
About 5.4 million students, or 1 in 4, took at least one distance education course during the fall of 2012, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.

That said, even the best online programs – like their traditional campus counterparts – have some poor professors. And it can be trickier to identify those instructors in an online course until it’s too late to switch.

The many students beginning a new online course should be aware of these six signs their professor won’t make the grade.

Not providing any video or audio resources in an online class is tough on your students-you need interactive items for students-it's best if you include a number of yourself discussing / demoing concepts too.

Getting Started on Academic Twitter v2.0 – ProfHacker - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Getting Started on Academic Twitter v2.0 – ProfHacker - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | eLearning and eTeaching in the Humanities | Scoop.it
At this year’s MLA Convention, I was invited to give a workshop on getting started on social media, namely, Twitter. It was an interesting full-circle moment for me, as is writing this piece; my first ProfHacker appearance was because of my virtual participation at MLA11.

I’ve written recently for ProfHacker about why I still find Twitter valuable. And apparently, many academics are, if not seeing the value, then at least interested enough to attend a session by me at the MLA Convention in 2017. I realized, while preparing for the workshop (who am I kidding, it was on the fly while I was giving the workshop), that the landscape of Twitter has changed tremendously since us “early adopters” fumbled around on the platform back in the late Aughts.

So an introduction to Twitter for Academics necessarily has to be different in 2017 than even a few short years ago (I’ve been doing this for a while). What I provide here is an expanded version of what I said in the workshop.

The first thing to do is to set up your handle, which (say it with me) doesn’t have to be your name. Nor does your real name have to be present. Nor does where you work or live be included in your biography. Nor do you have to turn on your location. Nor does it have to be your picture in the avatar box. It does not guarantee full anonymity, but it does give you a layer of protection.

4 types of training videos for learning

4 types of training videos for learning | eLearning and eTeaching in the Humanities | Scoop.it

You probably already know that video can be an excellent medium for training. But before you get started building your video, you need to decide what type of training video to create to get the best results.

Whether you are tasked to make a training video or you initiated the project yourself, you probably have customers (internal or external) who have expectations of what the training should be and how it should be delivered. With that in mind, one crucial step before you choose what type of video to make is to consider your customers’ expectations. Be prepared to get buy-in from your stakeholders (and possibly from viewers) if you’re diverting from what they expect. This can be subliminally through framing, or explicitly by explaining your approach.

So, you need to think about how you’re going to handle customer expectations, but you should also consider your learning objectives. What do you hope to achieve with this training? Is the goal to inspire, persuade, remind, or demonstrate? While there are many types of videos you can employ to execute your tactic, there are four big genres that lend themselves well to video learning:
