Stephen Dale's curator insight, April 7, 2015 6:12 AM

A couple of great finds from master Curator Robin Good. As he notes

 

"This is an interesting trend as in the past most tools to deliver educational content relied on the author creating and posting only his own materials. The fact that you can now include valuable content published by others opens up the gates both for the curation of lots of existing content into useful learning courses as well as for the issues of whether and how to compensate curated content from others"

Robin Good's insight:

 

New interesting tools make it possible to create online courses and full online learning programs, by drastically simplifying the design process while providing simple tools to curate and bring together valuable existing content already published online.

 

The first I'd like to bring to your attention is Classmill, which makes it very easy to create online courses by providing a very simple and intuitive interface and allowing the author to add with ease his own texts, as well as images, links and video clips coming from elsewhere on the web. Anyone can publish an online course and make it visible to everyone. Only those who register and join in can see the full contents and can participate in the integrated discussion area for the course.

 

The second one is Learnyst, which goes one step beyond Classmill by facilitating the creation of a full online school with multiple courses and the ability to charge for selected ones. 

 

Both tools are extremely easy to use, and allow the assembly of existing materials, whether owned or produced by others. 

 

This is an interesting trend as in the past most tools to deliver educational content relied on the author creating and posting only his own materials. The fact that you now can easily include valuable content published by others opens up the gates both for the curation of lots of existing content into useful learning courses as well as for the issue of whether and how to compensate curated content from others. 

 

This economic issue though, does not preclude tons of free high-quality content to be re-used and showcased in many new free learning courses and it provides those who want to learn with even more non-commercial alternatives to master their favorite topics. 

 

Takeaway: You are going to see more of these tools and more subject-matter experts create valuable learning resources by bringing together key relevant content produced by others while adding tangible value, perspective and context.

If you have a strong passion or expertise it's time to start thinking about building your own online school. 

 

 

Check out these two tools:

- Learnyst

- Classmill

 

Other curation tools for learning moving in the same direction:

- Gibbon

- Learnist

- Educrate

Urged your students to memorize more in order to remember more? If the answer is no, you may want to rethink your notions of psychology and its place in the learning environment.

The Language Of The Maker Movement: 38 Terms For Teachers - TeachThought

The Language Of The Maker Movement: 38 Terms For Teachers - TeachThought | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it
As the maker movement in culture moves from MacGyver jokes and what Noah did when Allie left him in The Notebook to something with a bit more academic and cognitive credibility, it has also begun to creep in to the education space.

As with any niche, there is specialized language–jargon–that may keep things murky for you. The 38 terms below by no means represent an exhaustive collection. (There are dozens of gadgets, circuit boards, and digital, robotic, and electrical wizardry we left on the cutting room flow.) But for most teachers in most circumstances, it should serve as a nice starting points.

What truly drives change in Education?

What truly drives change in Education? | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it
Assessment is probably the strongest driver of education and the most significant obstacle to change. While high stakes testing focuses on low order skills, an emphasis on recall of knowledge and learned strategies for responding to predominantly content based questions progress will be stifled. Open a dialogue with teachers about the need to teach dispositions and it will not be long before someone says “That’s all very good, but I need to get my students ready for the test”.

Interesting and insightful article.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, November 13, 4:59 PM
One thing that is missed is the role of teachers. I agree that we need goals, parental engagement, and developing skills (or as John Dewey called them habits). The article points a finger at teachers as if the only way to teach creatively is to hold teachers externally accountable. The truth is, when we treat teachers that way, we deny them their creative practices to engage in the change.

It’s (still) not OK for teachers to remain digitally illiterate. Here’s why… - Darren E. Draper - Medium | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it
Just over ten years ago, Karl Fisch wrote a blog post that has stuck with me through the years. In it, he asked if it was OK to be a technologically illiterate teacher. Even though we’ve learned greatly in the last decade about the merits of using technology to replace teachers, I think Karl’s arguments back then are even more relevant today. In this post, I’ll explain why.

Part of the literacy that often goes overlooked is that a digital tool is not always the best tool. Teachers are both learners and teachers. To say otherwise misses the point of teaching an learning.

3 Assumptions Teachers Should Avoid - Edutopia

3 Assumptions Teachers Should Avoid - Edutopia | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it
Assumptions. We all have them. We carry them into the car, into the classroom, into work.

Some assumptions operate to save cognitive space: We plan for a working LCD projector, for example, or we assume the copy machine will work. (Not always, to be sure, but in general we expect them to be reliable.)

In working with teachers, both new and veteran, I have also found that some assumptions—particularly those that pertain to ourselves and to our students—can cause frustration, leading to burnout. Beliefs we have about how we should operate or how students should behave can sometimes cloud our vision, preventing us from seeing who stands before us.

Luckily, if we’re aware of these assumptions, we can work to counteract them.
