Education 101: What is intentional learning? - Philadelphia Continuing Education

One way continuing education students ensure their success is through intentional learning or being an intentional learner. Adult education is greatly enhanced by taking a proactive stance towards college education. What is an intentional learner? The core definition of intentional learning or an intentional learner is the persistent and purposeful energy applied to the learning strategies and processes. This same energy can be applied to continuing education courses in college. “Three aspects of intentional learning are the (1) decision to engage in committed, persisted learning effort (self-motivation), (2) the ability to apply and manage strategic cognitive efforts to achieve goals (self-direction), and the (3) extent to which the learner takes responsibility for learning autonomously.

If You’re Going to Survey Students About Teachers, Do it Right

A recent New York Times piece explored the question, “Should Students Be Able to Grade Their Teachers?” The author invited students to comment, and their opinions poured in. Students were overwhelmingly in favor of the idea, not surprisingly. The most common sentiment was essentially, “Students learn from teachers, and teachers can learn from students.” Others expressed the valid concern that students would not grade fairly, but instead react emotionally. At Panorama Education, we have been helping school districts survey not only students, but also teachers, parents and administrators, for several years. Increasing the Success of Online Students.

True Grit: The Best Measure of Success and How to Teach It

You can, but not how you might think. When psychologist Angela Duckworth studied people in various challenging situations, including National Spelling Bee participants, rookie teachers in tough neighborhoods, and West Point cadets, she found: One characteristic emerged as a significant predictor of success. And it wasn't social intelligence. It wasn't good looks, physical health, and it wasn't IQ. RioNews: Predictive Research Aims To Improve Student Success.

Rio Salado College is applying similar predictive modeling technology to increase completion and success rates in the school’s online courses. “The predictions are based on ‘habits’ in a course such as log-ins, site engagement and pace,” said Shannon Corona, Rio Salado physical science faculty chair and lead for the predictive analytics pilot program. “This is then compared to historical data against other students.

Students’ Perceptions of Online Learning: A Comparative Study

Although several studies suggest that online education and blended instruction (a “blend” of online and traditional approaches) can be as effective as traditional classroom models, few studies have focused on learner satisfaction with online instruction, particularly in the transition to online learning from traditional approaches. This study examines students’ perceptions of integrating online components in two undergraduate business courses where students completed online learning modules prior to class discussion. The results indicate that participants in an elective course rated the online modules significantly better than those in a required course. Overall, participants in the elective course rated the online modules marginally positive while those in the required course rated them marginally negative. Citation.

A systematic search of the research literature from 1996 through July 2008 identified more than a thousand empirical studies of online learning. Analysts screened these studies to find those that (a) contrasted an online to a face-to-face condition, (b) measured student learning outcomes, (c) used a rigorous research design, and (d) provided adequate information to calculate an effect size. As a result of this screening, 51 independent effects were identified that could be subjected to meta-analysis. How Students Develop Online Learning Skills. Good Ideas More and more, adult learners are finding the convenience and flexibility of online learning a match for their learning goals and busy lifestyles. Online degree programs, courses, and virtual universities targeting adult learners have proliferated in the past decade.

Second-Level Digital Divide: Differences in People's Online Skills. Much of the existing literature on the digital divide - the differences between the "haves" and "have nots" regarding access to the Internet - limits its scope to a binary classification of technology use by only considering whether someone does or does not use the Internet. To remedy this shortcoming, in this paper I look at the differences in people's online skills. In order to measure online ability, I assigned search tasks to a random sample of Internet users from a suburban county in the United States. What drives a successful e-Learning?

Digital-course law changes schools’ lessons. LITTLE ROCK, ARK. — A new law requiring all high school students to take at least one digital course leaves the decision about what to offer up to school districts. The Arkansas Department of Education recommends that superintendents and principals give the same scrutiny to digital courses that they do any other course offered, said Debbie Jones, assistant commissioner of learning services for the department.

Jones recommends that courses also involve some face-to-face interaction, even if that interaction is through a Web camera. “We have posted suggestions,” Jones told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette ( ). “It’s not required.” Computers are increasingly used in schools. Act 1280, passed in 2013, mandated public school districts and charter schools to offer at least one digital learning course this school year. Arkansas « « Keeping Pace. Back to map.
