The Textbook Is Dying. Meet the Artificially Intelligent Software That’s Replacing It.  | Learning Apps | Scoop.it
This fall Pearson introduced an “immersive digital learning tool” called Revel that reimagines the textbook as a multimedia experience replete with videos, interactive exercises, and animated infographics. The goal, Pearson’s Stephen Frail tells me, is to make the course materials “more compelling than Facebook,” which after all is only “one click away” whenever a student is doing coursework on her computer or tablet.

Rube Goldberg Machines and the Engineering Design Process - Tchers' Voice

Rube Goldberg Machines and the Engineering Design Process - Tchers' Voice | Learning Apps | Scoop.it
Rube Goldberg – a comically involved, complicated invention, laboriously contrived to perform a simple operation. ~ Webster’s New World Dictionary

When Rube Goldberg walked away from his engineering career in 1904, it’s unlikely he realized the impact that he would have on 21st century education. I find it ironic that many educators at the forefront of STEM education find inspiration from his cartoons, like The Simple Alarm Clock, that were published in newspapers across the United States over 100 years ago.

When I initially share the Engineering Design Process with my middle school students (see below), I like to have them collaboratively plan, construct and then use the iterative process to continuously refine a Rube Goldberg Machine.

7 mitos y realidades sobre la formación online.

 

Mito nro. 1, no se puede obtener un empleo acreditando un diploma logrado mediante aprobación de cursos en línea.  Reaalidad: 62% de los profesionales de RRHH creen que los diplomas obtenidos por cursos online son equivalentes o mejores que los logrados en universidades tradicionales.

 

Mito nro 2, sólo universidades de dudosa reputación ofrecen programas que se imparten totalmente en línea. Realidad: el porcentaje de instituciones que ofrecen programas completamente virtuales se ha duplicado en la última década hasta alcanzar 62.4%.

 

Mito nro. 3, los programas virtuales contribuyen con el aislamiento de sus estudiantes. Realidad: los cursos distribuídos en el formato presencial tradicional pueden también incentivar el aislamiento.

 

Mito nro. 4, obtener un diploma en línea es tomar el camino fácil. Realidad: si bien es cierto que el formato eLearning es más flexible, ello no significa que los cursos dictados en ésta modalidad sean menos rigurosos.

 

Mito nro. 5, "Tengo todo el tiempo del mundo para culminar mi curso online". Realidad: si intenta retrazar indefinidamente el cumplimiento de las tareas asignadas en un curso online, muy problamente, no superá ese curso. La procastinación no funciona el mundo real ni en el virtual.

 

Mito nro. 6, usted no aprenderá mucho tomando cursos vía eLearning. Realidad: investigaciones recientes indican que no hay diferencias significativas entre los resultados de aprendizaje por estudios virtuales y el método presencial tradicional.

 

Mito nro. 7, puedo hacer fraude en los programas de formación online. Realidad: muchas escuelas online han implementado sistemas de protección antifraude. Algunas otras exigen la realización de exámenes presenciales a sus alumnos. ¡ El gran hermano siempre está observando...!
