Five eLearning Myths Busted

Five eLearning Myths Busted | Technology for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"There’s a lot we know about eLearning, much based on fact and experience, but we base some of what we believe more on wishful thinking, tradition, and legend. Separating the two can be a helpful exercise, but it can also be controversial, as people will disagree on what is true and what is myth."

So where does Second Life fit into the grand scheme of higher ed?
"“Edutainment” may get someone to take an online course once, but if the value’s not there – from performance to business results – they won’t come back."
EDTECH@UTRGV's comment, October 17, 2011 10:42 AM
Good point N5DUX. I have explored Second Life as a potential platform for delivering training and/or instrsuction. Nearly everything you can do in SL can be done using other platforms without having to deal with all of the distractions.

The A-Z Dictionary of Educational Twitter Hashtags - Edudemic

The A-Z Dictionary of Educational Twitter Hashtags - Edudemic | Technology for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The A-Z Dictionary of Educational Twitter Hashtags:

 

First, What’s A Hashtag?

 

The # symbol, called a hashtag, is used to mark keyword or topic in a Tweet. Any Twitter user can categorize or follow topics with hashtags.Those hashtags (usually) mean something and are a great way to get a tweet to appear in search results or discussion monitoring.

 

For example, the popular #edchat hashtag is used by thousands of users every Tuesday. It makes it easy (sort of) for people to monitor what’s happening in the conversation rather than having to try and guess what topics you should search for. By having a conversation on Twitter using hashtags, you also make it easy for any other Twitter user to join in.

Cheating in school: How the digital age affects cheating and plagiarism | Technology for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Interesting infographic.

 

"The consequences of cheating used to instill fear into many a student. But it seems these days, kids just don’t care about academic honesty anymore. Many students can’t even distinguish between what constitutes plagiarism and what doesn’t. According to recent research, 71% do NOT believe copying from the Web is 'serious cheating.' "
