Targeting 6 Social Learning Needs in eLearning Environments

Targeting 6 Social Learning Needs in eLearning Environments | Technology | Scoop.it

"When it comes to successful eLearning design, everybody should agree that there’s no such thing as too much information about how the human brain operates. It’s wired for social learning. Our respective environments actually shape our brains and the rest of our bodies."

Beth Dichter's insight:

SH!FT has published a new post that looks at how one can meet social learning needs in an online environment. The post includes a link to a short video (~3 minutes) that looks at "the application of neuroscience to organizational development."

The six areas are also found in a face2face environment (although there may be students whom do not experience all of them).

To create a more effective eLearning course consider these areas as you design it:

1. Belonging to a group

2. Ability to express

3. Ability to compete

4. Ability to support and be supported by other learners

5. Ability to see what's being learned

6. Excitement about applying learning

More information is available on each of these concepts in the post.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, October 29, 2013 9:34 PM

Common Sense Media has just published an infographic and a report that looks at how children ages 8 and under are using media. They did a similar report two years ago so you will see some major shifts in how current technology is being used.

Areas covered in the infographic include:

* Access to mobile technology

* Tech savvy toddlers

* Screen time

* What kid's are doing with mobile devices

* Television time

* Digital Divide

and more. There continues to be debate over how much screen time is appropriate for young ones. This infographic may provide some information that surprises you. To access the summary or the full report, "Zero to Eight: Children's Media Use in America 2013"

4 Apps and Web Tools Perfect For Digital Art Class - Edudemic | Technology | Scoop.it

There are lots of web tools and apps out there that teach specific educational material. If you tried to catalog the vast number of spelling, reading, writing, and math apps out there, you’d probably have a full time job just keeping track of everything that’s out there. There are apps for specific math concepts (like the series of iDevBooks apps that we’ve mentioned in the past) as well as more general ones. There are apps for every age group and reading level.
