Channylt's curator insight, April 7, 2014 10:56 AM

Great tips on how to facilitate collaborative learning. Learners that work collaborativley are engaged in their learning and have better learning outcomes. 

Marina Cousins's curator insight, April 10, 2014 8:06 PM

I liked this article, as it highlighted to me the importance of collaborative learning is much better than individual learning.  As I have mentioned several times, the learning and assessment that takes place within my workplace has a strong behaviourist foundation of learning and repeating key words and actions to pass an assessment (it is a very individual approach to learning).

 

Many of my colleagues view this experience of learning & assessment in a negative way.  What are some of the ways to overcome this negative view of learning?

 

After reading this article, I will seriously consider using a collaborative learning style within my workplace (if I get the opportunity).  The advantage of using real world problems or clinical incidents is that it offers the learner the opportunitity to improve their critical thinking skills and problem-solving ability.  

 

Therefore, by using collaborative learning you can apply the following learning theories of cognitivism, constructivism, objectivism.

Hazel Kuveya's curator insight, April 10, 2014 9:22 PM

Keeping the groups at moderate levels will ensure an effective exchange of ideas and participation in all involved, I can echo the same statement that two heads are better than one. It is also interesting to learn that collaborative teams attain higher level thinking and preserve information for longer periods as compared to  their individual counterparts., yes the use of technology makes collaborative learning manageable.

News curator Summly launches to help simplify the way we consume news on mobile devices

News curator Summly launches to help simplify the way we consume news on mobile devices | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

Excerpted from review article on The Next Web:

"Summly is a free iPhone program that has a back-end that will automatically determine what the relevant facts of a story are and convert it into consumable bites of information (aka short summaries) to give you just enough to know what’s going on.

 

The company was started by Nick D’Aloisio, a 16-year-old founder who some believe to be the youngest person in the world to raise venture capital.

 

Summly launches to the world and anyone can download it for free. All the content on the screen is formatted specifically for the respective device and you won’t have to scroll through multiple screens to get the summary — just tap and read.

 

When you first open Summly, you will find that there isn’t much there. You have the option of creating channels from pre-determined news topics and personal filters.

The pre-determined topics are sourced from at least 300 English-speaking feeds while the news stories under the personal filters are generated through the Microsoft Bing API.

 

Standard Apple device gestures are integrated into this application to allow you to move forward or back, view additional options, and much more. Articles can also be shared through email, SMS, Facebook, and Twitter.

Once you’ve set up all your pre-determined news topics and personal filters, you can set them and watch it update..."

With online learning, role of textbooks evolves | Learning Happens Everywhere! | Scoop.it

"Changes in how students take classes could also mean changes in how they prepare for them. With the increasing availability of online courses, the role of textbooks is evolving. The explosion of open online courses now affords students across the globe free access to classes. Often, these courses don’t have required texts and post recommended reading lists instead. Some professors provide access to readings or don’t use textbooks at all."
