Online Learning Journal Releases New Free eBook

Online Learning Journal Releases New Free eBook | Engaging learners with elearning | Scoop.it

By  Jill Buban, Ph.D.

 

"I’m pleased to announce the publication of a free eBook, a collaborative effort between Routledge and the Online Learning Consortium. In the past five years, the Online Learning journal has undergone a name change (formerly the Journal of Asynchronous Learning Networks), a merger with the Journal for Online Learning and Teaching (JOLT), the flagship publication of the Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching (MERLOT), and an expansion of the editorial board, including editor-in-chief Dr. Peter Shea who continues to act in this role. Other members of the editorial board have a broad range of expertise in online, blended, and digital education which brings me to the focus of this eBook. Many of the Online Learning editorial board members are Routledge authors and, when we look at our great Online Learning Consortium (OLC) community of members, volunteers, and friends, we have additional Routledge authors in common."

4 types of training videos for learning

4 types of training videos for learning | Engaging learners with elearning | 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:

Here is a collection of some very good iPad apps students can use in their classroom projects. The apps, which are curated from Apple's Real World Learning collection, are geared towards enhancing a number of key skills that include: creative thinking, design skills, literacy skills, coding, and many more.

Using Technology Doesn’t Make You Innovative – George Couros – Medium

Using Technology Doesn’t Make You Innovative – George Couros – Medium | Engaging learners with elearning | Scoop.it
If a classroom gets iPads, a question you will often hear immediately is, “What apps should I download?” In our concern for machines taking over education, we often do things that encourage machines to take over our teaching. I have been privy to seeing many educators use “flashcard” apps with students, not because they see it as a better process, but because they feel they need to justify iPads in their classroom by using them (the device) in some way with their students. This is often because devices are thrust onto educators without much thought and support on what is possible to do with them and how this aligns with the vision of the community.


I always ask educators to think, “What could you create with this iPad that you couldn’t create before?” Focusing on what we can “create” versus what we “consume” only, is a great starting point. It is not that consumption and content isn’t important. It is just that both consumption and creation should be evident in education for true deep learning.

10 Strategies To Help Students Use Social Media For Critical Thinking - TeachThought via @kevmowat | Engaging learners with elearning | Scoop.it
Use of social media platforms like twitter, facebook, and instagram can walk a fine line, teetering back and forth between connectivity and narcissism.

More immediately for educators, it illuminates our need to create empathetic learning experiences that connect learners for deeply human purposes. The greater the dysfunction, the greater the need to belong.

So then, let’s take a look at 10 ways we can help children–students, in this case–use social media critically. Critical thinking begins with the self and extends out. Rather than fight things like ‘screen time,’ maybe we can help them use that time in more constructive ways grounded in critical thinking.
