Some of The Best Academic Search Engines for Teachers and Student Researchers | Learning, teaching and technology (with a bit of library on the side!) | Scoop.it
When it comes to searching for  niche-specific content Google search engine is not the best option out there. Although Google can be a good starting point from which you can delve deeper into the content area you are searching but you can save much more time by using content-specific search engines. In today’s post, we are sharing with you some examples of academic search engines student researchers and teachers can use to search for, find and access scholarly content. We are only featuring the most popular titles, but you can always find other options to add to the list.

The Future of Education is Unstructured Learning, and Here's Why

The Future of Education is Unstructured Learning, and Here's Why | Learning, teaching and technology (with a bit of library on the side!) | Scoop.it
Unstructured learning is an authentic real-world way of learning. That’s because the real world itself doesn’t have neat compartments or set disciplines for success. It demands adaptability, patience, and a willingness to learn and to use what is learned in the moment. Most of all, it requires us to take full responsibility for what we learn.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, December 26, 2017 8:36 AM

“El aprendizaje no estructurado ocurre cuando dejamos que los estudiantes jueguen sin una guía para que puedan sacar conclusiones por sí mismos. Sin embargo, todavía este tipo de aprendizaje requiere del apoyo del maestro, particularmente en las primeras etapas del proceso. Esto sucede en forma de diseño de escenarios, desarrollo de plantillas, formulación de preguntas orientadoras, etc. Al final, sin embargo, todos estos métodos están diseñados para apoyar y guiar a los estudiantes mientras caminan felices a través de lo desconocido”. (Global Digital Citizen Foundation, 2017)

Unstructured learning is an authentic real-world way of learning. That’s because the real world itself doesn’t have neat compartments or set disciplines for success. It demands adaptability, patience, and a willingness to learn and to use what is learned in the moment. Most of all, it requires us to take full responsibility for what we learn.

 

It’s time to play and to let go of rigid teaching in favour of unstructured learning. For this to happen, teachers have to foster trust in their students. They have to be willing to take a step back and put a little slack on the reins of traditional pedagogy. In short, we need to let things get a little messy. Ease into it—it’s a bold step and it will transform everything.

Jerry Busone's curator insight, January 5, 8:14 AM

Unstructured learning brings real to your workshops and classroom. Its not YOU the teacher doing all the presenting but its about guiding and facilitating people through real world problems and allowing them to innovate,apply principles ,models  and come to their own conclusions. Just like there are many ways to lead and sell there are many ways to learn ...

12 Different Types of Blended Learning (Top Models) - TeachThought

12 Different Types of Blended Learning (Top Models) - TeachThought | Learning, teaching and technology (with a bit of library on the side!) | Scoop.it
Blended Learning is not so much an innovation as it is a natural by-product of the digital domain creeping into physical spaces.

Broadly speaking, blended learning just means a mix of learning online and face-to-face, which means it’s likely your students are already doing some form of blended learning, and have for years.

As digital and social media become more and more prevalent in the life of learners, it was only a matter of time before learning became ‘blended’ by necessity.

Teaching Google Scholar: A Practical Guide For Librarians Free Download | Learning, teaching and technology (with a bit of library on the side!) | Scoop.it
Teaching Google Scholar in your library instructional sessions can increase students' information and digital literacy skills. Students' familiarity with Google Scholar's interface works to the instructor's advantage and allows more time to address students' information needs and teach foundational information literacy skills and less time teaching a new database with a less-intuitive database interface. Teaching Google Scholar: A Practical Guide for Librarians will illustrate instructional methods and incorporate step-by-step guides and examples for teaching Google Scholar. It begins with providing you with essential background:What Google Scholar isHow to set up Google Scholar using OpenURLHow to design Google Scholar instructional sessionsHow to incorporate active learning activities using Google ScholarAfter reading it, you will be ready to teach students critical skills including how to:Use specific Google Scholar search operatorsIncorporate search logicExtract citation data, generate citations, and save citations to Google's My Library and/or a citation management programUse Google Scholar tools- including 'cited by,' 'alerts,' 'library links,' and 'library search'Google Scholar is a powerful research tool and will only become more popular in the coming years. Learning how to properly teach students how to utilize this search engine in their research will greatly benefit them in their college career and help promote life-long learning. Google Scholar instruction is a must in today's modern information literacy classroom.

Vocal Recall - Attach Audio to QR Codes

Vocal Recall - Attach Audio to QR Codes | Learning, teaching and technology (with a bit of library on the side!) | Scoop.it

Vocal Recall uses QR codes to store a link to your audio feedback in a fully end to end encrypted manner. The codes can then be attached via sticky labels directly to a student’s work and the student can retrieve the feedback using an QR reader. This process saves time, is easily evidenced, allows for greater depth of feedback and engages students with a personal touch. In all trials students have much preferred this form of feedback stating that it is easier to understand and learn from their mistakes in a way that a short, written comment cannot achieve.

When we started the intention was to make it distinct from the NMC New Horizon reports by focusing on pedagogy. I think, to be honest, in those early ones there was probably a technology focus still, but as it’s progressed it has really moved away from this to more pedagogy, socially focused issues.

A List Of 50+ Teaching Strategies To Jumpstart Your Teacher Brain

A List Of 50+ Teaching Strategies To Jumpstart Your Teacher Brain | Learning, teaching and technology (with a bit of library on the side!) | Scoop.it
In addition to literacy strategies, approaches to assessment, and grouping strategies (among many others), knowing the right teaching strategy for the right academic situation may not be a matter of expertise or training, but memory: out of sight, out of mind, yes?

Which makes the following infographic from fortheteachers.org useful.

While it doesn’t offer definitions and explanations for each strategy (it’s an infographic, not a book), and many great strategies are missing (e.g., 3-2-1, exit slip, project-based learning, accountable talk, ask a question, etc.) it does work well as a kind of reminder for what’s possible, even offering categories for each strategy, from progress monitoring (think-pair-share, KWL charts), to Note-Taking (graphic organizers).

There are 87 instructional strategies listed below, but several are repeated across categories, so let’s call it “50+” strategies.

FindLectures.com is a curated search engine for quality online lectures, interviews, documentaries, and historically significant speeches.

The video list can be navigated with a deep topic taxonomy, which allows the discovery of interesting niche topics.

Videos are ranked using over a dozen quality measures, so that you can spend time learning, not looking.

Ranking and inclusion are affected by topic variety and novelty, length, audio quality, and speaker presentation style.

Other factors include the speaker having a unique background and material being the appropriate difficulty level for being a standalone content aimed at an educated audience.
