Anne Whaits's curator insight, May 28, 2014 11:10 AM

This is the second in a series of articles written by @phylisebanner which focusses on the Pedagogy of Learning Design. She presents a  pedagogical, designed approach to instruction based on three key elements in effective e-learning: social presence, teaching presence, and cognitive presence. This instalment focusses on social presence – the creation of a welcoming setting that is open and inviting so that our learners will want to engage with each other, the instructor/facilitator, and the learning content

HCL's curator insight, May 28, 2014 8:30 PM

An interesting read on how social presence can guide learning design and create learning communities. By creating learning communities, learners will want to engage with each other, the instructor/facilitator, and the learning content.

Sam Burden's curator insight, June 16, 2014 9:22 AM

This online teaching resource reflects a video game known as SimCity, but Plan It Green provides opportunities for participants to construct their own virtual city with creative control. Students can log in via there google accounts to come face-to-face with a very easy tutorial to guide users through the set-up. The game encourages learners to persist via an internal reward system, to reach certain levels of the game. The game can be a collaborative experience as you create and communicate with other communities. This game was developed to have an eco-friendly theme, promoting a sustainable lifestyle, asking students to Plan It Green, leading to valuable educational lessons about energy conservation and the use of alternative solutions which is environmentally friendly.


The game addresses social issues affecting our world, linking to real world issues, making learning relevant to the learner. I would use this game as a tool in my classroom as it is a way students can be facilitators of their own learning, identifying problems and creating solutions in a digital format but they can also be applied in a real world context, reaffirming technology and sustainability curriculum outcomes.

No Courses, No Classrooms, No Grades — Just Learning

No Courses, No Classrooms, No Grades — Just Learning | Learning without limit. | Scoop.it
A Boston area innovation studio for middle and high school students is bucking the traditional school model for what students love best: hands-on learning.

 

NuVu is a full-time magnet innovation center for middle and high school students. NuVu’s pedagogy is based on the architectural Studio model and geared around multi-disciplinary, collaborative projects. We basically teach students how to navigate the messiness of the creative process, from inception to completion.

No Courses: Instead, we have studios. Around 12 kids work closely with their 2 coaches on solving big (and small) open-ended problems.

No Subjects: Instead, everything is fused together. Students find themselves moving between a studio that requires them to design a telepresence robot to another that requires them to re-imagine Boston with a cable car system.

No Classrooms: Instead, we have an open space that changes all the time to adapt to the needs of every studio.

No One-Hour Schedule: Instead, students spend two weeks from 9-3 solving one problem.

No Grades: Instead, we have portfolios that document students’ design decisions and show their final products.

Divorce your school from bells and national standards drive n data production in favour of connections. developing problem based learning requires questioning the structure that our schools operate within. Counter. Culture.

Learning by doing has always been a pattern to master a craft. This is particularly true for the  new-normal which cannot simply be taught as it is not there yet. 

What i mean is that the higher skill of entrepreneurship must be mastered in the same way: by doing, but with an OS that enables better results

Gamify your classrooms with Kahoot. | ipadders.eu | Learning without limit. | Scoop.it

"This week I’ve been getting excited about using Kahoot in the classroom. Kahoot delivers online quizzes and surveys to your students.


It works very similar to the more well-known Socrative. The teacher displays the question and the answers on the beamer or tv in the front of the classroom. The students see the corresponding icon and color on their screen. They have 30 seconds to answer on their devices and get points for every question they answer right. The quicker they answer the more points they receive. After each question the top 5 students are shown on the board with their scores. This is where it gets exciting. The students love this immediate feedback and want to get to the top position. I have never seen students so focused on answering the questions correctly."

"Below are 30 entirely subjective but hopefully somewhere close to reality takes on what’s trending up and what’s trending down in education and education technology for 2015 and beyond. A handful of these aren’t pure edtech items, but it’s all part of the same ecosystem yes?

 

Note that this list isn’t an endorsement–meaning this isn’t necessarily the way I think things should be, but rather what they seem to be–at least from my vantage point, right here, right now. Ask me again in August.

 

What’s trending up, what’s trending down, and what’s in that awkward middle ground of education and education technology? Below are 30 guesses."
