For-Credit MOOCs a Growing Trend

For-Credit MOOCs a Growing Trend | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it
Is the day coming when MOOCs will be widely accepted for credit? Some have hailed MOOCs -- massive open online courses - as the next great wave in education

Ralph Springett's curator insight, June 25, 2013 5:08 PM

Pay to study online education is nothing new. This article conflates free courses with paid courses. A MOOC is Open with the word originally meaning free. With these new models now seeking fees for credit, they are no longer MOOCs, simply online education. Are we being honest with our learners?

Juliet Hinrichsen's comment, June 26, 2013 10:56 AM
yes, I think some people get carried away with what they perceive as 'new' (especially if it coins a new term which only those in the know can pronounce...). Isn't this just the preparatory phase of a clear business model? Massive generally means low quality for things - are e-learning courses any different?

Educators Must Accept Tech Methods, Higher Ed Leaders Say

Educators Must Accept Tech Methods, Higher Ed Leaders Say | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it
The University of Houston visiting assistant professor requires students to drop drafts of their papers in a shared Google folder, where they type notes on each other's writing styles and arguments for one another to see. Uscinski watches the conversation unfold, commenting on student feedback and giving pointers of her own.

It's a far cry from traditional peer editing techniques, when students swap papers and scribble notes in the margins. That method isn't effective, she said, because new college students don't yet know what helpful feedback looks like.

Being an educator is quite demanding in terms of planning a class. Even though there are many helpful resources that we can use to teach and take advantage of them. Due to the great changes produced by the technology and the opportunities it offers, such as interactive classrooms, instant information, and permanent updates, It’s quite important that the entire school system improves and becomes a part of the age of technology. so it’s better that we introduce changes one by one If we want that our students to listen, and not only hear what we’re saying, but ask questions and engage in discussions, it’s quite important for as to find a way to intrigue them and spark their curiosity. We should definitely try to use their desire to know everything – when a student is curious about our subject, they will pay attention, and that additional interest they show will help them store all the facts that they have heard in their long-term memory later on. Visualization Is a Powerful Learning Tool taught to students in order to help them develop their memory. In fact, some children develop their own unique set of memory tools. However, whether they’re writing things down, studying out loud or drawing sketches, all of them respond to visual teaching aids incredibly well. Various colors, different fonts, and creative shapes can all be used together to help students to learn more efficiently, but they can also help educators keep their students focused on the topic at hand, without the need for wasting any extra energy on warnings and reestablishing order in the classroom. Use of visuals like infographics can be quite beneficial to both student and teacher. They allow as to create our lessons around a central image, something that the entire class can be focused on as we speak, so we don’t have to check our notes every couple of minutes to make sure we didn’t forget something.

Successful Leaders Know What Made Them Who They Are

Successful Leaders Know What Made Them Who They Are | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it

As chairman of the Washington Speakers Bureau, Bernie Swain posed one simple question to 100 of the eminent people that his company represents. People like Madeleine Albright, Tom Brokaw, Colin Powell, Terry Bradshaw and Condoleezza Rice were asked to identify the one person, event, or influence that made them who they are as a leader and a person.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, September 7, 2016 3:35 PM

The overriding lessons from Bernie Swain's questioning is that successful leaders are self-aware. They have an inner voice and pay attention to it. They understand the defining moments of their lives and thereby better understand their own strengths, biases, and weaknesses as leaders.

Ditch the grammar and teach children storytelling instead

Ditch the grammar and teach children storytelling instead | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it
Storytelling in its way can have just as much complexity as music or mathematics. That we don’t really understand this craft – or that this is a craft – is partly because of the romantic myth of “inspiration” peddled by authors as much as anyone. It is taught (up to a point) in creative writing degrees – but it can be simplified enough to be taught to schoolchildren as well.

"The assessment itself is completely artificial. It’s not ranking teachers in accordance with their ability to help develop children who will reach their potential, explore their creative interests. Those things you’re not testing.. it's a rank that’s mostly meaningless. And the very ranking itself is harmful.

Now, think about education.

Danielarv's curator insight, September 16, 2016 4:06 PM
This article provides 9 techniques which can help improve knowledge retention in eLearning course. The first technique is doing an audience research in which you know about learner preferences, goals, and preexisting knowledge. Subsequently, you need to incorporate optional self-assessments in order that online learners check their own progress. Next, you can provide to your learners a microlearning online library gathers all of your bite-size eLearning in one place so that online learners can get in, get out, and get back to business. Additionally, you can provide to learners, visual summaries such as graphics, mind maps and infographics due to the fact that the human brain remembers images more effectively than text. Furthermore, the use of games in eLearning course can significantly improve knowledge retention. Also, another technique is the spaced repetition which improves knowledge assimilation by preventing cognitive overload. One of the most important techniques is the creation of mobile learning content in which online learners will actively engage with the eLearning content. At the same time, learner-generated eLearning content is an important technique which gives online learners the chance to refresh their memory and actively recall the information. Finally, the use of online forums to facilitate the online collaboration process allows that learners improve long-term retention. These knowledge retention techniques allow that online learners achieve their learning goals.
