The Backchannel: Giving Every Student a Voice in the Blended Mobile Classroom

The Backchannel: Giving Every Student a Voice in the Blended Mobile Classroom | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it

Over 12 years ago, as Todd Curtis and his teaching partner tried to get all of their eighth graders engaged in class discussions, they noticed a trend. Though students talked freely outside of class, they became silent in class. As an experiment, they jury-rigged their email system into a backchannel.

Useful article about using backchannels (and we all should be) in class.

Elizabeth Dalton's curator insight, May 24, 2014 9:35 AM

This is something I had not thought a lot about, but with the growth of Blended Learning throughout our systems of learning, it makes so much sense to include this in our planning.  This article gives some great examples and ideas about tools and backchanneling for our learners.  I think this has great promise for reinforcing adult learning as well.

Study questions effectiveness of online education for at-risk students

Study questions effectiveness of online education for at-risk students | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it
New study finds students at most risk may be those least well served by learning outside the classroom.
Dr. Helen Teague's insight:
From article: "According to a new study from the Brookings Institution, students who are the least well prepared for traditional college also fare the worst in online courses. For top students, taking an online course didn’t definitively have a negative effect on a student’s grade point average. But for others -- especially lower-performing students -- taking online courses was associated with higher dropout rates and lower grades, both at the time the course was taken and in future semesters, when compared to students who took classes in person."

"Exposing students to online learning long before they reach college is practical. This point paints online learning as a life skill of sorts – something for kids to understand before entering the real world as adults, much like balancing a bank account or learning how to create a resume. Without a solid understanding of online learning before graduation, students are less prepared for what they will face academically following high school."

Design thinking as a strategy: How understanding innovation creates innovation

Design thinking as a strategy: How understanding innovation creates innovation | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it
Business strategies – especially in the tradition sense – are rather pushy. If you have a product, your strategy is to explain why a customer should use it.

Design thinking as a strategy flips this. Instead of forcing a product on customers, instead, it sees things from the customer’s perspective. A design mindset is not problem-focused, it is solution focused and action-oriented towards creating a preferred future. Design Thinking draws upon logic, imagination, intuition, and systemic reasoning – exploring the possibilities of what could be. This train of thought creates desired outcomes benefiting the end user.

When design principles are applied to strategy and innovation the success rate for innovation dramatically improves.

En momentos en que en la Pcia. de Bs.As. se permite el uso de celulares... qué hacemos con ellos? 

Yeison Ossa Trejos's curator insight, November 2, 2016 12:45 PM
From my point of view, personal devices such cell phones, tablets, ipads, among others, can be a huge risk if we allow students to use them in the classroom. However, it is also true that we as teachers should try to find useful ways to incorporate these potential resources into our lessons if we want to increase learner involvement and motivation while at the same time improving time management, teacher-student interaction, meaningful learning and real-time provision of feedback. 

All these educational factors can be simultaneously addressed if teachers take some time to do a little research on the web to find out the countless activities that digital devices allow them to perform along with your students both in and outside the classroom. 
Sebastián Vásquez's curator insight, December 4, 2016 6:07 PM
One of the most common expressions that I use to listen to nowadays is "put your cellphone away". Many teacher deal in their daily basis with students distracted by their phones and most of time they take desperate actions towards this situations which leads to a rough environment and affects the atmosphere of the classroom. In fact, one need we have in this current days is that of creating students perception towards the use of this devices which is not  a short way to walk but neither impossible. Providing the conditions and raising awareness about other possible uses into the classroom as well as raising curiosity to what is happening in the classroom will increase the possibilities of obtaining better behaviors in terms of technology. Our task then is to start thinking of strategies to implement since the very basis of the students academic life.
