"A purple monster with wild curls spiraling out of control explains the economics of oil production in the Sudan to students in Los Angeles, Sydney, Berlin, Jerusalem, and Riyadh.

That is education and animation working together to teach students everywhere, everything they ever wanted to know. Educators need only utilize the tools available, most of them for free."

Jordan Funke's curator insight, June 11, 2014 12:08 PM

This presentation details six highly creative and technology based ways that teachers could incorporate design into their classroom, and use it for assessment. The ideas are as follows: flipbooks, mindmaps, photoquotes, infographics, flashcards and social bookmarking. I like this article a great deal because it in itself is a great example of using technology to design a visually appealing presentation that presents information in a more creative and user-friendly way. It is a designed solution to the problem of getting readers to engage with your content in an information-saturated society!

How Mobile Learning Works

How Mobile Learning Works | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Ever wonder how mobile learning works? This is a quick guide to how it functions, what the methodology is behind it, and more.
Anne Whaits's insight:

According to author, Saurabh Tyagi, the Framework for the Rational Analysis of Mobile Education (FRAME) model is used to describe the mobile learning process from three aspects:  Device, Learner and Social. It is the  interaction of Device, Learner and Social that attempts to define mobile learning, which itself is an ever-evolving process.Mobile capability can enhance learning by facilitating interaction and collaboration, creation of a learning community and providing access to a variety of online resources in real time.

Increasing Interaction in Online Learning Environments

Increasing Interaction in Online Learning Environments | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Focusing on the qualities of effective online teaching, here are a collection of real strategies to increase interaction in online learning environments.
Anne Whaits's insight:

@jaymelinton shares strategies for increasing interaction in online environments based on these three categories as defined by Moore (1989):

Learner-instructor interaction; Learner-content interaction; Learner-learner interaction.

She makes a case for strong "teacher presence" in the online learning space; PBL to encourage student/learner engagement with content; and synchronous & asynchronous class discussions to develop a collaborative learning community.

The Padagogy Wheel ... it's a Bloomin' Better Way to Teach

The Padagogy  Wheel ... it's a Bloomin' Better Way to Teach | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

" Dr Ian Green from the School of Education here at Adelaide and I [Allan Carrington] have used Padagogy 101 (introduction to iPad in HE) and Padagogy 201 (more advanced use for L&T) to train over 600 faculty from universities in Australia. During my research I saw lots of great work done by others using Bloom’s Taxonomy including the Revised Taxonomy which has now become the Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy. However when I discovered the excellent pioneer work done by Kathy Schrock with “Bloomin’ Apps” I got the idea for the Padagogy Wheel. Dare I say it but it is the next version for mobile learning of the ongoing importance of Bloom’s Taxonomy. Bloom’s is still fundamental to good teaching and learning."

Anne Whaits's insight:

Allan Carrington (University of Adelaide, Australia) devised the Padagogy Wheel to support his work in training and developing faculty to use the iPad in higher education learning and teaching. I particularly like the non-linear presentation of thinking skills in this wheel. Do explore Allan's blog for other great resources including PADAGOGY 101, PADAGOGY 201 and more.

New Media Literacies — Learning in a Participatory Culture

New Media Literacies — Learning in a Participatory Culture | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"The New Media Literacies constitute the core cultural competencies and social skills that young people need in our new media landscape. We call them “literacies,” but they change the focus of literacy from one of individual expression to one of community involvement. They build on the foundation of traditional literacy, research skills, technical skills, and critical analysis skills taught in the classroom. If these New Media Literacies are learned – and they can be learned without computers in the classroom – they can form the building blocks for students’ participation in new media."

Anne Whaits's insight:

 

The New Media Literacies - core cultural competencies and social skills = Play, Performance, Simulation, Appropriation, Multitasking, Distributed Cognition, Judgment, Transmedia Navigation, Networking, Negotiation and Visualisation.

How well are we doing in developing these competencies/skills ourselves and with our students?

German Bustos's comment, September 6, 2013 5:43 PM
Is there no need for a common minimum? It looks great the idea of a personal "playlist" of education topics, but if education should not give you something in common with the people you leave with, how can we built a common thing a "res publicas". Which are the boundaries or restriction of a total customized education? Every one will have the same liberty? even little kids? Even poor people? Even people with disabilities who need help to learn?
