Grades are in: Digital learning gets more state attention

Digital Learning Now! , a national initiative of the Foundation for Excellence in Education (ExcelinEd), which pushes to reform education and to improve technology, recently released the report card that grades K12 education policies in each of the nation’s 50 states. But the grades for some states are still failing or near failing.

A Great Wheel of All The Learning Theories Teachers Need to Know about. I really feel like there are no words that can ever give credit to the phenomenal work put into creating the wheel below.

A Great Wheel of All The Learning Theories Teachers Need to Know about

It just amazed me how much time invested in it. Teaching is a hands-on activity ( unless you are a lecture-based type of teacher ) that is deeply grounded in learning theories. Being able to recognize and differentiate between the different learning theories together with the ability to understand the reasons why you opt for a certain theory to inform your teaching and not the other are key to sound and successful teaching career.

The interactive graphic below will definitely help you clear out the cloud over any confusion resulting from misunderstanding a learning theory, it will also set out clear boundaries and demarcate territories for learning theory.

Simple Techniques for Applying Active Learning Strategies to Online Course Videos. From Web-enhanced face-to-face courses to MOOCs, flipped, blended, and fully online courses, videos are an integral component of today’s educational landscape—from kindergarten all the way through higher education.

Simple Techniques for Applying Active Learning Strategies to Online Course Videos

But there’s a big difference between watching a video and learning something from it. Videos are great for presenting visual information and emotional appeals, but not particularly effective at diving below the surface of non-visual theoretical or abstract topics or for driving critical thinking. What’s more, any video presented in class must compete for attention and memory with the five-plus hours the typical student spends outside of class watching television programs, movies, and other onscreen entertainment.

14 Bloom's Taxonomy Posters For Teachers

In an upcoming post we’re going to look at better use of Bloom’s taxonomy in the classroom, but during research for that post it became interesting how many variations there are of the original work. While a handful of the charts below only show aesthetic changes compared to others, most are concept maps of sorts–with graphic design that signifies extended function (power verbs), detail (clear explanations), or features of some sort (Bloom’s Taxonomy tasks by level). The follow simple, student-centered Bloom’s graphics were created by helloliteracy! Applying the Seven Principles for Good Practice to the Online Classroom. Almost 25 years have passed since Chickering and Gamson offered seven principles for good instructional practices in undergraduate education.

Applying the Seven Principles for Good Practice to the Online Classroom

While the state of undergraduate education has evolved to some degree over that time, I think the seven principles still have a place in today’s collegiate classroom. Originally written to communicate best practices for face-to-face instruction, the principles translate well to the online classroom and can help to provide guidance for those of us designing courses to be taught online. 1.

MOOCs, Courseware, and the Course as an Artifact. As Phil mentioned in his last post, he and I had the privilege of participating in a two-day ELI webinar on MOOCs.

MOOCs, Courseware, and the Course as an Artifact

A majority of the speakers had been involved in implementing MOOCs at their institutions in one way or another. And an interesting thing happened. Over the course of the two days, almost none of the presenters—with the exception of the ACE representative, who has a vested interest—expressed the belief that MOOCs provide equivalent learning experiences to traditional college courses.
