Connected Learning:


  1. Interest-powered – the researchers state that “learners who are interested in what they are learning, achieve higher order learning outcomes.” This requirement brings a certain degree of relevance to educational models. Organizations that follow the connected learning principles create programming that allows the learner to explore their own interests.
  2. Peer-supported – Connected learning also has an element of socialization as a required function in learning. Allowing learners to interact with each other and teach each other in various forms of group work helps learners make connections not only with the materials they’re learning, but with their peers as well. Creating learning spaces where peer to peer learning is encouraged leads to deeper cultural exploration and understanding.
  3. Academically oriented – The third principle proposed by the Connected Learning Model proposes that academic success is an important underpinning for intellectual growth.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy | Teaching (EFL & other teaching-learning related issues) | Scoop.it

Med Kharback:

I just got this poster from a fellow teacher featuring the 6 thinking skills as outlined in the revised taxonomy. As you probably know, Blooms taxonomy that was first created in the 1950s has been revised by Krathwohl and there are two  main changes that appeared in this revised taxonomy: the first one is semantic in that nouns are now being replaced with verbs; and the second change relates to the order of these thinking skills. In the old taxonomy, Bloom highlighted the importance of evaluating and therefore placed it at the top of the  thinking continuum, but for Krathwohl Creating is the highest order thinking skill.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, May 6, 2013 1:25 PM

With all of the cuts in education though, would it not be beneficial for a new teachers to start to create this type of digital portfolio?  I know some great new teachers that had to move schools or divisions because there just wasn’t enough jobs for them at the end of the day.  Will “branding” yourself and creating a digital identity/footprint that is conducive with your teaching philosophy not only help your colleagues, but create more opportunities for yourself.  It was not too long ago that Forbes Magazine published a blog entry discussing how the traditional ”resume” will be replaced by an online presence.  One of the points in the article shared how, “job seeker passion has become the deciding factor in employment“, and I believe that would be tough to show in a resume.  Through a portfolio, this could be shown over and over again through stories and shared experiences of your teaching; in a resume it would traditionally be shared through an opening paragraph.  As someone who has hired several candidates, I know that I have been able to get more of a “story” through a more comprehensive digital portfolio than I have from a resume.  If this is something that everyone is not doing (yet), won’t creating an online presence give many an advantage?  This obviously has other factors involved (who is hiring and what they are looking for, what the portfolio says, etc.), but I think that there could be many positives to this being done for new and/or experienced teachers.

A great example of Voicethread in action for speaking and listening with language learners.  Many of the prompts are structured as exam practice.  Students can record, but also hear examples by learners from all over the world.
