Evaluation of Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning

A recent 93-page report on online education, conducted by SRI International for the Department of Education, has a starchy academic title, but a most intriguing conclusion: “On average, students in online learning conditions performed better than those receiving face-to-face instruction.”

Online learning outcomes

Nevermore Sithole's curator insight, November 14, 2013 5:05 AM

A good and interesting article

robyns tut's curator insight, November 26, 2013 8:45 AM

I understand that this may be an average, however I hope that it is kept in mund that this is not true for many students. I for one have to print out my online notes in order to use them to the best of my ability. Also, even if this is true, I believe that face- to - interaction is being lost in this technological age. but it is still as important as it has always been and that needs to be remembered - Justine Pearce

And when I had to explain why iPod didn’t start with an upper case letter the way proper nouns usually did, well, I decided all of the rules were up for grabs. The changes I have mentioned are rather superficial, but they are indicators of a large shift that has been taking place in the way that I teach literacy.

Having students use technology in many different ways is a great idea. My children enjoy being able to video chat and skype with their daddy because he is overseas, and they study different words or lessons that they are going over to not only keep him involved but also so they can have the experience of having their daddy help them with school work as well.

We Need More EdTech, But Less Technology In The Classroom

We Need More EdTech, But Less Technology In The Classroom | Vocabulary teaching | Scoop.it
Technology plays a primary role in my teaching, but I rarely turn on the computer that makes the classroom “smart.” Occasionally, I project the class tweet stream. I am an advocate of Twitter for higher ed.

What Is Successful Technology Integration?

What Is Successful Technology Integration? | Vocabulary teaching | Scoop.it

Before we can discuss how to shift our pedagogy or the role of the teacher in a classroom that is integrating technology, it is important to first define what "technology integration" actually means. Seamless integration is when students are not only using technology daily, but have access to a variety of tools that match the task at hand and provide them the opportunity to build a deeper understanding of content.

A deeper understanding and learning through technology

Good article with some great advice.

Sandy Owens's curator insight, November 18, 2015 8:03 PM

Integration is at its best when a child or a teacher doesn't stop to think that he or she is using a technology tool.

Silvana Richardson's curator insight, April 17, 2014 11:09 AM

The new Cambridge English Teaching Framework is now available to download.  It has been designed to encapsulate the key knowledge and skills needed for effective teaching at a variety of levels and in different contexts.

The framework describes teacher competencies across four levels, and four aspects of teacher knowledge and skill and is a profiling grid intended to show stages of a teacher’s development at any one point in time.

Connectivism as a Digital Age Learning Theory

George Siemens and Stephen Downes developed a theory for the digital age, called connectivism, denouncing boundaries of behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism. Their proposed learning theory has issued a debate over whether it is a learning theory or instructional theory or merely a pedagogical view.

This might be my new research topic. Very interesting.

Paige Paul's curator insight, September 15, 2015 7:52 PM

Topic 2- This is an interesting piece that explores how connectivism should be categorized.  Sometimes I think people in the education world can get too caught up in labels and buzzwords, and forget that ultimately what you call it doesn't matter as much as whether or not it promotes student learning.
