Twitter s'installe dans les amphis des facs

Twitter s'installe dans les amphis des facs | eLearning Tools, Trends and Strategies | Scoop.it
SOCIÉTÉ - Le petit oiseau bleu prend ses quartiers dans les amphithéâtres, notamment en droit. Professeur à la Sorbonne, Bruno Dondero explique cette évolution sur Europe 1.
Alain Londes's insight:
Professor Dondero at the Sorbonne in Paris uses Twitter for his large law course.  If it's a given that students already have distractions (laptops, tablets, smartphones, etc.) he is able to make Twitter a communication channel for students to ask questions, share opinions, fact-check, and check out rich material on the fly.
It's a good solution for his large class.

#avancee e a revolucao  em aprendizagem que é ignorada por aqui.

21 praticas que todo educador do seculo XXI deveria fazer para manter a sanidade mental :D


Fato é, que algumas praticas, como encorajar a democracia na sala de aula por meio da discussão moderada,  são milenares e ainda muito dificil de serem adotadas com uma comunicacao nao violenta em diversos aspectos.

Quiçá as recomendações sobre video, posts, fotos, etc...

Sei que alguns educadores tem se empenhado para traduzir as angustias da geracao do seculo XXI, mas o movimento ainda é timido e mereceria ganhar um apoio publico.
