The Public Necessity of Student Blogging

The Public Necessity of Student Blogging | Learning & Technology News | Scoop.it
This article was borne out of my frustration, admittedly with both my own practice and that of my colleagues, in asking students to produce work only to have it locked away for a limited audience, mostly the marker but occasionally small groups of fellow students. We have the technical capabilities and infrastructure to push student work into the world
Nik Peachey's insight:

Very much agree with this well argued piece.

Robots vs. Humans: Does ChatGPT Pose a Challenge to Second Language Writing?

Robots vs. Humans: Does ChatGPT Pose a Challenge to Second Language Writing? | Learning & Technology News | Scoop.it

Some of the immediate questions for us as language educators are clear: How good is it at responding to foreign language writing prompts? What can we do to get ahead of the wave to ensure that students are truly engaging with their own thoughts and producing their own language? Or, to put it succinctly: How worried should we be?

Teaching in the 'Metaverse'? Roblox Looks to Make It a Reality

Teaching in the 'Metaverse'? Roblox Looks to Make It a Reality | Learning & Technology News | Scoop.it

Roblox itself is not a game per se, but a virtual environment in which players connect and interact online as they explore millions of “experiences” that range from caring for virtual pets to taking part in online fashion shows. Such experiences are created not by Roblox employees, but by a network of independent developers who earn money based on players’ engagement and in-game purchases.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, January 30, 8:43 AM
About 7 million users each month participate in one of Roblox’s “learn and explore” experiences, which often include educational content but are rarely tied to academic standards or used by schools. A handful of mostly out-of-school computer science education programs also use the company’s development environment, known as Roblox Studio, to teach children how to code their own video games. And a smattering of teachers like Ashlee Vice, of the Cyber Academy of South Carolina, a full-time statewide online public school operated by Stride Inc., have also incorporated Roblox into class projects.

The Future of Hybrid International Education

The Future of Hybrid International Education | Learning & Technology News | Scoop.it

The Hybrid Flexible (HyFlex) model is an instructional programme that combines both face-to-face and online teaching. The courses are fixed by the instructor; however, students have the choice of learning in different modalities at the point of learning (online or remotely). Fundamentally students can choose how to engage with the material in in a way that best suits their learning style but, no matter how they choose to participate, they must all have equal access to course materials, lecturers, and their peers.
