Blended Learning and Student Agency | NextGen Learning

Blended Learning and Student Agency | NextGen Learning | Learning and Teaching Online | Scoop.it
Student agency is one of the reasons why next gen learning looks and feels different from traditional instructional practices.

Despite the best of intentions, whole group instruction that is teacher-centered or curriculum-centered tends to ignore the agency of individual students to own their learning and direct their own path through it. When student agency is embraced, the instructional model shifts to a student-centered learning model.

I like the term used in this article: "student agency".  I see it as self directed learning a dispostion that fuels well designed online learning experiences.  This blended learaning oriented piece shows the (chaotic and essential ) way to educating kids as learners in a 21st century environment.

Academic Digital Etiquette: Interacting in online spaces

Academic Digital Etiquette: Interacting in online spaces | Learning and Teaching Online | Scoop.it

Celia's reflections:

 

"I have had many discussions with students about the protocols on interacting in online spaces in an academic or professional manner. Whether they be commenting on a blog or giving feedback in comments on a Google document or interacting in Edmodo or Google Classroom, students need to be modelled the ‘professional’ way to behave. Commenting within an academic context is in fact providing feedback and as such quite a complicated skill for a young student."

The Foundations of MI Theory

The Foundations of MI Theory | Learning and Teaching Online | Scoop.it
To provide a sound theoretical foundation for his claims, Gardner set up certain basic "tests" that each intelligence had to meet to be considered a full-fledged intelligence and not simply a talent, skill, or aptitude. The criteria he used include the following eight factors:
Potential isolation by brain damage
The existence of savants, prodigies, and other exceptional individuals
A distinctive developmental history and a definable set of expert "end-state" performances
An evolutionary history and evolutionary plausibility
Support from psychometric findings
Support from experimental psychological tasks
An identifiable core operation or set of operations
Susceptibility to encoding in a symbol system

Curate and Create Learning Resources

If we want to have students seek out other information from sources other than the teacher, then we must make sure those resources are available. Many teachers using the flipped classroom approach already have created or found these kinds of resources. However, think broadly about the word resource. People are resources, texts are resources, and community organizations are resources -- to name just a few categories. We have to be comfortable not always knowing the answer, and instead suggesting we find the answer together through the vast amount of learning resources that we have at our disposal. Try curating these resources before, during, and after a unit. Work with students as well to create a culture where the answers are everywhere.

Learning Glass helps UW-Stout professors connect with online students

Learning Glass helps UW-Stout professors connect with online students | Learning and Teaching Online | Scoop.it

Learning Glass is a see-through blackboard with a twist.

 

Assistant Professor Julie Zaloudek: “With Learning Glass, you can see the instructors’ passion for the content we’re teaching. The student has the perception that we’re looking at them, and we like that.”

 

The idea for Learning Glass came from Jamison Patrick, of the Stout Online instructional design team. He saw a video about Learning Glass by a San Diego State professor who created one.

Patrick and Mike Cropp at the UW-Stout Discovery Center Fab Lab designed and built their own Learning Glass last fall using quarter-inch thick tempered glass mounted on a stand. Learning Technology Services created the set for videotaping.

“This provides an opportunity to be more engaging to our students,” Patrick said. “It’s low-cost and the return on investment is high. The possibilities are endless with e-learning.”
