5 Instructional Shifts to Promote Deep Learning | Social Collaboration in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Students develop transferable knowledge and skills as they engage in learning experiences that require them to construct knowledge. 

 

To facilitate these types of deep learning experiences, an adjustment in traditional instructional practices is necessary.

Design lessons with flexible learning paths

The concept of Universal Design for Learning suggests that teachers should design learning experiences to provide students with multiple means of engagement, representation and expression. Access to multimedia can provide students with flexible learning paths to meet many unique learning styles. Resources can include video, audio, text and images to provide students with information in a variety of flexible formats. Introduce students to digital tools with supports to meet their special learning needs and empower them to become independent learners. Choose learning platforms that provide students with opportunities to express their learning in a variety of ways and level the playing field for all learners.

Personalize Learning: Toolkit

Personalize Learning: Toolkit | Social Collaboration in Higher Education | Scoop.it

How do you personalize learning? First you need to know what personalized learning is. Here is a new site that provides resources, research, models, examples, and stories. This page provides a toolkit that can help your organization begin personalizing learning to meet the needs of all learners. 

 

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) provides the framework in personalizing learning for all learners. UDL also guides the design of the Personal Learner Profile[TM]. It provides the UDL lens to select the appropriate tools for the Personal Learning Backpack[TM] that helps them access information, engage content, and express what they know. UDL guides how Personalized Learning meets the Common Core. 

 

Check out the chart that compares Personalization, Differentiation, and Indivdiualization. You can download the chart and a report that explains the details of the chart.  The Three Stages of Personalized Learning Environments can help you determine where you are in personalizing learning. These are free for you to download.

5 Tips To Building A Healthy PLN With Twitter

5 Tips To Building A Healthy PLN With Twitter | Social Collaboration in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"The more I use Twitter, the more I understand the power that comes from connecting. Connecting with friends, connecting with colleagues, connecting with leaders and connecting with valuable sources. It all builds into what has become my most trusted source for professional development and generating ideas.

With a real opportunity to impact personal, professional and intellectual growth, here are five tips to help you build, nurture and grow your PLN with Twitter."

 

Great tips for those starting out!


...
4. Consume, Contribute And Collaborate

Like any healthy diet, building a healthy PLN on Twitter is all about balance. There are many ways to use Twitter, but to really take advantage of the network you need to work with the the 3 C’s.

Consume

Consuming is one of the greatest features of Twitter. The amount of valuable information being continually fed into your feed is like no other network. It is your job to curate and manage this feed so that only the highest quality Tweets are being consumed.

Contribute

It is very easy to ‘lurk’ on Twitter and only consume information provided by others. The real power of Twitter comes together when you begin sharing your own thoughts, links and information. Not only will this help you develop your own voice, but you may begin to gather a respectable following.

Collaborate

A combination of both consuming and contributing, collaborating is creating conversations with your PLN. This is the best way to build personal and professional relationships on Twitter. It is also a great way to ask and answer questions as well as get noticed as a thought leader within your network.
