“ This course is for students at a transition stage between college and university/employment. It focuses on: digital identity, behaviour and practice and can be used as part of the UK 16- 19 study programme. Students can assess their own digital literacy throughout the course and use this self-awareness to set targets to improve their skills. The course puts a strong emphasis on employability and includes contributions from local employers about the digital literacy skills they look for in job applicants.”

Edutopia - Redefining the Writing Process with iPads

Edutopia - Redefining the Writing Process with iPads | E-Learning including Moodle 2 | Scoop.it

"Take a moment to think about how you learned to write. What steps did you go through? What was your process?

 

Most of us learned the same core set of skills on paper: organize, draft, edit, revise, turn in. Our teachers then marked up what we had handwritten or typed, and returned our writing. From there, maybe it ended up tacked to a bulletin board, stuck on the refrigerator door, stuffed into a notebook, or tossed in the nearest trash can. Let's call this Writing 1.0."

Digital writing is an integral part of the writing process.  Another way to enjoy writing;)

harloff's curator insight, November 28, 2013 7:29 AM

Touch technologies can bring haptics back to the process of writing - thus still beeing digital. We have seen great advances in how we consume content, but less in how we create it.

It’s about time you give some love to Google+, a social media platform set to attract more people not only because of its new dressed up interface, but also by the recent features added.

All in all, it has been a very active month for Google+ and the new wave of features is projected to increase its social networking share.

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 8:19 AM

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.

Best Practices: Working with Glossary

Best Practices: Working with Glossary | E-Learning including Moodle 2 | Scoop.it

The Right Tool for the Job

 

Moodle’s Glossary module, with its multiple display formats, can be a powerful tool for encouraging student engagement. It gives you the opportunity to assess student learning within the activity, if desired, making it a go to option for many course builders and facilitators.

 

Whether it is definitions, information, links or files, the Glossary activity allows participants to collaboratively collect and organize information. (Glossary’s can also be built solely by the instructor for information dissemination.) Glossary entries can be searched or browsed alphabetically, or by category, date or author. Instructors can set the glossary activity so that entries are approved by default or require approval by a teacher before they are viewable by everyone. An instructor can also allow comments on entries.

 

Instructors can enable ratings on glossary activities allowing entries to be rated by teachers or students (peer evaluation). Ratings can be aggregated to form a final grade which is recorded in the gradebook

 

Benefits of Glossaries

 

Let’s look at some of the benefits the glossary activity gives both students and teachers:

 

* Building Community: The glossary activity allows students to share information about themselves, their interests, and their work, providing opportunities for students in the online environment to build connections.

* Increased Student Engagement: Students as content creators are more engaged in the learning experience.Collect Resources for Future Use: Content entered into the glossary can be used as resources in future classes.

* Opportunity for Group Work: Using glossaries in large classes is an easy way to incorporate group work, an important skill for today’s students.

Everyone is afraid of getting up on stage and giving a speech or what ever they need to do in front of an audience. These kind of tips are helpful in every way possible especially when someone is nervous. Knowing that we need to just breathe is an important thing. These skills can allow us to get better in our presentations.
