5 IDEAS for a pedagogy of online learning | Tony Bates

5 IDEAS for a pedagogy of online learning | Tony Bates | Instructional Designer Daily | Scoop.it

Tony Bates:

"This report provides some intriguing suggestions for designers of blended and online learning. As the report states:

The examples of initiatives discussed ….. may be used as inspiration for course teams, departments or institutions to explore innovative practices.

 

It is clear that universities are going to change, not just because technology is at last beginning to radically shake up how we design courses, but also because the needs of learners are changing. In the end, the value of any new online pedagogy will be judged by how well it helps meets these needs. This report provides many useful ideas and examples that should help stimulate such developments."

The Flipped Classroom for Learning and Development

The Flipped Classroom for Learning and Development | Instructional Designer Daily | Scoop.it
“Before we delve into the topic of using the flipped classroom for Learning and Development, let us know what exactly is a flipped classroom.A simple definition of the inverted classroom is given by Maureen J. Lage, “Inverting the classroom means that events that have traditionally taken place inside the classroom now take place outside the classroom and vice versa”. In reality, the definition is broader now:A flipped classroom is an instructional strategy and a type of blended learning that reverses the traditional learning environment by delivering instructional content, often online, outside of the classroom. It moves activities, including those that may have traditionally been considered homework, into the classroom. In a flipped classroom, learners watch online lectures, collaborate in online discussions, or carry out research at home and engage in concepts in the classroom with the guidance of a mentor. The flipped classroom is a learner-centric model that focuses on applying learning, as opposed to the traditional course-centric model.”

Battle of the Toy Robots: BB-8 vs. Dash

Battle of the Toy Robots: BB-8 vs. Dash | Instructional Designer Daily | Scoop.it
“ Toy robots used to be toys that looked like robots. But today's options are far more sophisticated than the bleeping, blooping contraptions from the era of "Buck Rogers" and "Battlestar Galactica." Many have multiple sensors, voice controls, and artificial intelligence. They're real robots that just happen to be toys. But not all toy robots are created equal. To see which ones stand out from the crowd, we're putting five of the most popular models on the market to the test in a battle-of-the-bots showdown. In the weeks ahead, we’ll roll out the full results of the contest. In the meantime, welcome to Round One. In this first heat, Consumer Reports’ Emilio Gonzalez—a mechanical engineer, father, and resident "Star Wars" fan—pitted Sphero’s Star Wars-inspired BB-8 against Wonder Workshop’s Dash.”

This article has important aspects to be remarked since it includes pedagogy and translanguaging strategies. Therefore, it will help me state some points in my research project.
Laura Yepez's curator insight, September 12, 12:29 PM
This article provides meaningful information since translanguaging is impacting education. With the correct use of this strategy teachers can creat safety and challenging places for foreing learners. Students feel comfortable when their teachers use their native language so they feel they can carry out any activity; hence, a good learning environment will be stablished.

Why Profs Are Spending So Much Time Writing Crap That Nobody Reads | Instructional Designer Daily | Scoop.it

All of this is very unfortunate. Ideally, the great academic minds of a society should be put to work for the sake of building up that society and addressing its problems. Instead, most Western academics today are using their intellectual capital to answer questions that nobody’s asking on pages that nobody’s reading.

In education, we call these types of behaviors “reflective practice”, or the manner in which teachers step back and evaluate the learning environment.”
