Connectivism: A Digital Social Learning Theory | Marian H. Willeke

Connectivism: A Digital Social Learning Theory | Marian H. Willeke | we-Learning | Scoop.it

"Connectivism is best grasped as social learning theory rebranded for the digital age and communities of learning within that age. As a result, the theory’s principles remain steeped in social learning theory, while its application is adjusted for modern technology and the uniqueness of online communities. "

The Shift From Content To Purpose: A Continuum of Choice - TeachThought

The Shift From Content To Purpose: A Continuum of Choice - TeachThought | we-Learning | Scoop.it
What is the difference between a teacher-centered and learner-driven classroom?

We’ve taken a look at examples of student-centered teaching before. It’s both a subtle (in theory) and dramatic (in function) shift in the entire ecology of a classroom, curriculum, and sense of student identity in the process of learning. This idea isn’t new in and of itself. John Dewey espoused many of these same ideas century ago. It’s an idea that continues to pick up steam with proponents of ‘progressive education.’

Sylvia Duckworth–who has created dozens of useful, minimalist sort of sketch notes/illustrations that convey ideas in education–has taken the thinking from Barbara Bray and Kathleen McClaskey  and created a complimentary visual. (In fact, you can go straight to the source and read more from Bray and McClaskey on Choice is More than a Menu of Options.)

What happens when you empower students with choice and purpose? What do the new roles and responsibilities look like? The overview below (from the image above) offers some clarity on what changes. The biggest takeaway might be the change in focus from content delivery to purpose discovery.

It's Official: 'Digital Citizenship' Classes Are the New Normal in Schools

It's Official: 'Digital Citizenship' Classes Are the New Normal in Schools | we-Learning | Scoop.it
On a fall day in early September, Rachel Murat begins the school year by instructing her newest group of high schoolers to google themselves. As they click away on their Chromebooks, the students begin to realize what a simple search can reveal about them, and the room slowly fills with gasps of shock. Once the students have settled down, Murat tells them to google her name. “They always think they’re going to find dirt, but they never do,” Murat says. “Then I harp on them about not making a permanent post about a temporary emotion.”

When Murat wanted to start a digital citizenship class at Maine-Endwell High School in Broome County, New York, in 2012, she didn’t have much of a road map to work with. Today, a growing number of digital-citizenship curriculum providers are emerging, catering to increasing demand from schools and educators across the country adopting “DigCit” as central to the education they provide.

Daniel Tan's insight:

I think all these online response systems requiring the use of the students' devices are wonderful. However, is there an impact, perhaps one that might be significant enough, of the use of students' devices in that the device is personal. Do students using an older device relatively to others in the class be sensitive in its use When majority of the classmates have the latest ohone device models. Also when teachers and faculty be comfortable of students while using the devices in the exercise are distracted (actual or presumed or perceived) with other apps during that exercise? 

 

Also when the wireless access point be robust and reliable enough when it experiences a surge/flood of signals when large numbers of simultaneous responses are transmitted in a small time window. 

 

My observation is that teachers do not want to be encumbered with such distractions, uncertainty and confrontation when only partial student responses are recorded due to technical issues. The latter also leads to the technical support of student devices which is unknown (which version of OS), unfamiliar (what other apps or potential of interdependencies) and uncertainty (are you sure they are not checking on their apps while others are still thinking of their responses?)

Maybe this could be a solution to the CPS problem that we are having - especially since every student will have an iPad.  I have not looked into the data that is produced, but it might be something someone might be interested in researching!

Chris Carter's curator insight, May 20, 2015 8:11 PM

There are a number of student response systems. The more important question, rather than which one are you using, is are you using any one at all?

K_Lynam's curator insight, May 26, 2015 5:31 PM

Will cost you to get benefit of asking multiple questions, securing data & privacy, and being able to export data. $75/year for basic protections & additional questions, or $180 to add colleagues and get all Mentimeter has to offer. Device agnostic - works across platforms. Real time answers to multiple choice, open-ended or scaled responses.

25 Teaching Tools To Organize, Innovate, & Manage Your Classroom - TeachThought

25 Teaching Tools To Organize, Innovate, & Manage Your Classroom - TeachThought | we-Learning | Scoop.it
Over the years, many of us have personally experienced the growth of technology in today’s classrooms.

Instead of taking notes, students are now occupied by surfing the Internet, scrolling through Facebook, and messaging their friends on their smart phones, tablets, and laptops. Instead of focusing on the instruction, teachers are constantly required to interrupt class in order to remind those students again and again, that class time is for learning, not texting. However, as today’s students are using more technological devices, it is imperative that teachers have access to the resources to keep pace with the growing tech culture.

The use of smart phones, tablets, and other tech items in the classroom do not necessarily have to have a negative impact on student achievement. On the contrary, the increasing accessibility and growth of technology presents teachers with the unique opportunity to take advantage of those once distracting gadgets, and use them to facilitate academic achievement in new and innovative ways. In this capacity, teachers do not need to be constantly fighting for student attention, but can freely accept it, by introducing a new educational environment that will automatically encourage student participation.

Below are some resources that teachers may find useful when attempting to implement technology into their classrooms, separated by 5 common areas that are increasingly important for teachers, and for an effective learning environment—Organization, Project Based Learning, Class Management, Presentations, and Assessment.
