What are Outcomes Models (Program logic models)? - a knol by Paul Duignan, PhD Introduction  Outcomes models are models used to show how a program or intervention works to achieve high-level outcomes. Examples can be found at OutcomesModels.org . They have a wide variety of names and can be presented in different formats (e.g. databases, textual tables, visualized models and mathematical models or combinations of these). Some of the names they go by include: results maps, logic models, program logics, intervention logics, means-ends diagrams, logframes, theories of change, program theories, outcomes hierarchies and strategy maps. In its most general sense, an outcomes model is a model of some sort which makes a claim about how the 'world works'. What purposes are outcomes models attempting to achieve? In order to be clear about the best way of representing outcomes models we need to be clear about the purpose they server.They can have the following five purposes: Timing and outcomes models In terms of timing, there are two time frames for outcomes models:
#1 Free Timeline and Gantt Chart Maker for PowerPoint Marzano Study: 13 best practices for effective online teaching | Edmentum Blog There is a vast amount of research available on best practices for classroom teaching in a traditional learning environment. However - despite the explosive growth of online learning, there is a shortage of research that examines the effect of instructional strategies on student academic outcomes in an online learning environment. To address this research void, the Marzano Research Laboratory (MRL) undertook a study to determine best practices in online teaching and to evaluate the relationship between student achievement and effective teacher pedagogical practices with respect to online instruction. The study analyzed instructional practices and achievement data across 23 sites in 12 states.
Logic model A logic model (also known as a logical framework, theory of change, or program matrix) is a tool used most often by managers and evaluators of programs to evaluate the effectiveness of a program. Logic models are usually a graphical depiction of the logical relationships between the resources, activities, outputs and outcomes of a program. While there are many ways in which logic models can be presented, the underlying purpose of constructing a logic model is to assess the "if-then" (causal) relationships between the elements of the program; if the resources are available for a program, then the activities can be implemented, if the activities are implemented successfully then certain outputs and outcomes can be expected. Logic models are most often used in the evaluation stage of a program, they can however be used during planning and implementation. Versions In its simplest form, a logic model has four components: Advantages Uses of the logic model Notes
Five Steps to Storytelling with Data In the pre-digital era, data was a subject for mathematicians and scientists. Now, one way or another, we can’t escape it. Our constant use of online services not only relies on data, we are also a continuous source of data, generating information about all aspects of our lives. Whether it’s data about the human body—thanks to the rise of wearables—our energy consumption at home, or data tied to our personal finance: we’re creating mountains of data, and now we need to find ways to make sense of it. The rise of personalized data is poised to be a hot topic as companies seek to deliver real benefits from the information gathered on consumers. Data has to be accessible to the average person. Data visualization has come a long way since its formative days as the basic pie chart invented over 200 years ago. 1. Make sure you know the data you’re working with. 2. Good data visualization is so much more than a beautiful picture, it tells a story that can be understood by anyone. tweet this 4. 5.
Journal of Systems and Software : System dynamics modelling of software evolution processes for policy investigation: Approach and example Abstract This paper describes one of the latest in a series of system dynamics models developed during the Feedback, Evolution And Software Technology (FEAST) investigation into software evolution processes. The intention of early models was to simulate real-world processes in order to increase understanding of such processes. The work resulted in a number of lessons learnt, in particular, with regard to the application of system dynamics to the simulation of key attributes of long-term software evolution.

Digitale Didactiek » Online werkvormen Hoe maak je een interactieve beeldscherminstructie? Auteur: Hans Maier,Ton Uffink Organisatie: Avans Hogeschool: Leer- & Innovatiecentrum, Academie voor Bouw & Infra Beeldscherminstructies hebben vaak de vorm van “eenrichtingsverkeer” tussen docent en student. Door ze te gieten in de vorm van een vraag en antwoordspel tussen docent en student(en) wordt er op een natuurlijke en gevarieerde manier (interactief) op de inhoud van de leerstof ingegaan. Geplaatst op 16-02-2009 Thema - Met een digitale leeromgeving colleges ondersteunen Aan het gebruik van een elektronische leeromgevingen (DLO) worden veel voordelen toegeschreven. In dit themanummer willen we dan ook richten op toepassingen binnen de DLO die ondersteunend kunnen zijn voor colleges en dus ook de kwaliteit van colleges kunnen verhogen. Geplaatst op 18-08-2006 Thema - Digitale Audio Als het gaat om ICT in het onderwijs is er veel aandacht voor gebruik van beeldmateriaal, zoals video. Geplaatst op 30-06-2006 Eerst het begrip online.
collaborative writing QikPad is a new service that allows you to quickly create an online place to collaboratively create documents with one or more partners. If you've ever used a service like Titan Pad or Sync.in you'll notice a lot of similarities with QikPad. To create a collaborative document with QikPad just go to the site, name your document, and click "ok." Your QikPad document will be assigned a URL that you can share with anyone you want to join you in the writing process. QikPad provides an embed code and a QR code for your document to enable easy sharing of your documents. Applications for Education QikPad could be a nice little tool for students to use to develop outlines together or take notes together.
