Haven't we yet reached the point where assessment is no longer knowing "about" rather than knowing "how"?

'm excited to be hosting two Simple K12 webinars in October featuring one of my more popular interactive resources, Great Ways to Use Google Drive. Both of the webinars will explore resources on the interactive image you see here, but since there is so much content to cover in 30 minutes, we've divided the learning into two separate webinars, with different focuses.

6 Design Principles Of Connected Learning

6 Design Principles Of Connected Learning | Instructional Technology | Scoop.it

What is possible in a learning environment today? One idea you  might want to explore is Connected Learning.  "CLA is on our short list of thought leaders that help push us to think about how education is changing in a modern world, which is why we’ve shared some of their models in the past, including their iconic Connected Learning model. Recently, we also discovered that they’ve shared the design principles of that model, along with a description of each."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 28, 2014 9:41 PM

Connected Learning looks at digital technology and how we can use it to aide our learners. The image above shows their learning principles and design principles. There are three of each.

Learning Principles:

* Interest Powered

* Peer-Supported

* Academically Oriented

Design Principles:

* Production-Centered

* Openly  Networked

* Shared Purpose

Connected Learning provides opportunities for students "to experience learning that is social, participatory, interest-driven and relevant to the opportunities of our time."

You will find additional information on the Learning and Design Principles as well as a short video in the post.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, June 9, 2017 5:01 AM
What was once a web filled with code and scrolling text, the Internet is now the world’s largest conglomerate of images. And as visual content continues to rule, the number of images available online will only grow. But just because you can Google an image — and technically copy or save it — doesn’t mean the web is a free-for-all of visual data. Photographers and designers need to put food on the table. If every online image was available for free, there would be a lot more starving artists. Fortunately for them, copyrights apply in cyberspace just as in print. And anyone using an image without appropriate rights and permissions can find themselves in plenty of hot water. Understanding the ins and outs of image licensing and usage can save digital marketers, web designers and other content curators from unnecessary penalties, ranging from cease and desist notices to lawsuits and financial demands. Want to be sure you properly use images in your online content? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Just follow our five simple steps, and you just might save yourself a load of legal trouble.
