When Your Content Resembles Spaghetti: The eLearning Coach: Instructional Design and eLearning

When Your Content Resembles Spaghetti: The eLearning Coach: Instructional Design and eLearning | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it
How to perform an instructional analysis, to identify the skills and knowledge required to reach a learning goal.

 

Connie Malamed: Last week I was given seven PowerPoint slide decks to transform into meaningful content that adult humans could comprehend and use. Although the slides were reasonably well-organized, the content was difficult for a layperson like myself to understand.

What’s the Best Way to Practice Project Based Learning? | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

Who is in control? Who is initiating the project? Whose passion is being honored with the project? Who is setting the goals, timelines, and motivation? Are you scaffolding the students’ success through templates, calendars, checklists, rubrics or are you unwittingly stealing their locus of control and micromanaging them.

Well-known K-12 tech expert, Kathy Schrock, presents a helpful list, mostly aimed at K-12 folks, but the list offers a model for thinking about iPad use in the classroom.

Karen Williams's curator insight, March 19, 2013 2:04 AM

Thorough research, practical guides and pedegogy to iPads.

Peer to Peer U – A New Model of Learning

Peer to Peer U – A New Model of Learning | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

Knowledge used to be the sole domain of the individual, highly educated expert. A professor with a PH.D. or a carefully researched and written book were the best sources to find out about something. This is a model of learning that has held sway since the earliest human societies formed and people with particular fields of expertise taught other members of their groups. The Internet and social media have dramatically changed what it means to know something, and initiatives like Wikipedia are reshaping where we turn for "expert" information. Social collaboration and meaning making are allowing for knowledge to be the domain of a collective group rather than any individual. A recent study even revealed that Wikipedia is now as accurate as the Encyclopedia Britanica.

 

The P2PU Model


P2PU works on the premise that everyone has something to offer, the idea that passion for a subjects can substitute for expertise, and that social interaction is the key to motivation and learning. The motto of the institution is, "learning for everyone, by everyone, about almost anything." While this crowd-based model of expertise cannot substitute for the highly educated scholar’s years of research and careful consideration of a single topic, it does provide a potentially good source of entry-level knowledge to many subjects.

INFOGRAPHIC : The Internet In 2020

INFOGRAPHIC : The Internet In 2020 | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it
The Internet is progressing at such a blistering pace that by 2020, we are probably going to see a lot of changes, hopefully for the better.  For example, right now here in 2012, we’re seeing a vast amount of data being uploaded to the cloud, as more...

 

Our infographic this week, courtesy of Visual.ly, shows us some of the possible changes that we might see in 8 years time. I’m sure we will see more people online as infrastructure, services and businesses start hooking up more to the net. This will mean more people, from a wider area of the world, from a wider variety of backgrounds, will be able to enjoy the benefits of the net and it won’t become a toy of the privileged richer nations. I’m talking about places such as the African continent, South America and Asia.

The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map

The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.

 

Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists. 

 

But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.

 

The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.

 

On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).

Full map: http://bit.ly/ContentCurationUniverse
