Below are the posts we made to share updates on our progress as went along. Following our participation in Dave Cormier’s open online course – Rhizomatic Learning – The Community is the Curriculum, Frances Bell, Mariana Funes and I are keen to research what happened, our shared experiences and what we learned in this course.

Engaging students with social media – Blending for engagement. Social media is increasingly being recommended as an innovative method of supporting student engagement. Mobile technology makes it easy for us to reach learners wherever they are and, in turn, allows them to share their concerns or memorable moments with us.

With students spending less time on campus and more time on social media, it is essential for teaching and support staff to explore how sites like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook can be integrated into the student experience. What do we mean by student engagement? Before you decide how to use social media to increase student engagement, you need to be clear about what you mean by engagement. Are you striving to improve attendance at classes or events? Would you like more feedback on services or to prolong class discussions? Here are four different types of student engagement that can be enhanced with social media. 1.

For students to be interested in what’s happening on-campus, they need to be informed. 2. 3. 4. Like this: Cogneon Wiki.

Handbuch CoScience/Aspekte der Kommunikation mit Wissenschaftsblogs – Einleitung Wissenschaftsblogs stellen ein sehr gutes Mittel dar, um mit Fachkolleginnen und -kollegen sowie der interessierten Öffentlichkeit zu kommunizieren und Ergebnisse aus der laufenden Forschung zu publizieren.

Dies lässt sich formal und technisch begründen: Blogbeiträge sind im Internet frei zugänglich und damit über Suchmaschinen auffindbar und im Netz sichtbar. Blogs sind technisch einfach zu bedienen, die Software ist in der Grundausstattung zumeist kostenlos, wenn auch mit Werbung versehen. Blogs bieten die Möglichkeit, Einblicke in die eigene 'Werkstatt'[1] zu geben und Zwischenergebnisse zu präsentieren.

Über die Kommentarfunktion kann man mit der Fachcommunity und der Öffentlichkeit in einen Austausch treten, womit wissenschaftliche Diskussion direkt, in Echtzeit und an verteilten Orten geführt werden kann und dies früher, als es bisher zumeist der Fall war. Warum bloggen? Zu den im Wissenschaftsbereich immer wieder genannten Gründen, warum gebloggt wird, gehören z.B. How to Create a Personal Learning Portfolio: Students and Professionals. This post explores Personal Learning Portfolios [PLPs], an extension of a Personal Learning Environment. I review briefly PLPs for professionals, but focus on the potential and promise that PLPs hold for our students.

I wrote recently about Personal Learning Environments [PLE], Personal Learning Networks [PLN] and the need for educators to develop both as a means to support their professional and personal growth and learning. A PLE can be viewed as a system that is built on the concept of creating a personalized framework for learning, tailored to one’s goals and interests. Personal Learning Portfolios for Professionals Both posts generated meaningful discussion— with many comments coming from participants in the Education Technology & Media course (#ETMOOC).

Yet, it is the following comment made during an asynchronous discussion between myself and two other educators that sparked the idea of introducing the concept of a PLP to students: My ‘working definition’ of a PLP for students: Pedagogical roles for video in online learning. CEL UX Honeycomb - Useful. How people learn, abridged version Here we turn to the work of cognitive psychologist Richard Mayer, and his cognitive theory of multimedia learning (Multimedia Learning, 2009): Figure 1. Adapted from “Cognitive theory of multimedia learning,” by R. E. Mayer, 2009, Multimedia Learning, p. 61. © 2001 by Richard E. As depicted in the visual above, we possess two channels for processing information in working memory: a visual channel for processing visual information (information that comes through our eyes); and a verbal channel for processing verbal information (information that comes through our ears).

Importantly, each channel has limited processing capacity. Key take-away 1:Avoid cognitive overload – engage both channels Helping learners process information efficiently is an important starting point when designing online learning material.
