udutu | Create simulations online with ease. Teaching, Learning and Technology There was another breakout session at the e-fair that might be of interest. Making intelligent use of data. RSC East Midlands has a microsite dedicated to data dashboards, where you can find lots of useful information on this topic. Visit it here. On this Moodle there are event resources from an event earlier this year - "Data dashboards - their uses and alternatives for decision making". There are lots of case studies on the Excellence Gateway website covering data and databases. Here are a few examples: West Nottinghamshire College: 'Data dashboard' drives delivery, decision-making and developmentAn Excellence Gateway case study In order to overcome problems with multiple data systems within individual departments, West Nottinghamshire College took the approach of getting its existing data out into the hands of staff by creating an in-house data dashboard.

New to E-Learning? Here are Some Simple Steps to Help You Get Started To a novice even simple things seem complex. And when things appear complex, we can become frustrated or feel like we don’t have the skills to accomplish what it is we want to do. I recall years ago when I was learning video production. This exercise was one of the best learning experiences for me. For new elearning developers, I recommend a similar process. Take a book, for example. The Basics In a very simple sense an elearning course is about creating an environment where a person goes from a point of not knowing to knowing. Common Course Chunks While each course has different content, they all generally have a similar structure. Here are what I see as common “chunks” that make up an elearning course. Obviously theses chunks are generic with the option to reorder or not use all (or any) of them. If you want, you can flesh out the chunks a bit more. Course Chunk Templates If you’re just getting started, create a PowerPoint template with a slide for each area. Tidbits:

85+ Resources: Educator Guide for Integrating Social Media I hope this post will be a handy reference guide, especially for those teachers new to social media technologies and how to integrate them into the classroom. This resource is by no means exhaustive, but it’s a good starting point for finding the information and people that will help you make the transition into a ’21st century learning environment’. I intend for this to be a wikipost (I will update resources as they are shared with me by others), so feel free to bookmark the page and check in periodically for new material. Enjoy.

1.9 to 2.0 Course conversion The Essential Elements of Digital Literacies (#digilit) | Synechism Soon after Grace, my daughter, was born earlier this year I was invited to Australia to keynote the Association of Independent Schools, New South Wales ICT Managers’ Conference . At the time, Grace was having some problems with lactose intolerance and so I couldn’t commit to being the other side of the world. The organisers still wanted me to present and so I produced the above ‘TELL Talk’ on along with giving a 50-minute workshop on the same subject. It felt a bit strange getting dressed to present at 2am in the morning to co-ordinate with their schedule but the technology worked well and the session seemed to be well-received. watch the Zipcast of my presentation here Two presentations (#TELIC1 & #iDragon) [VIDEO] Zen and the Art of Digital Literacies (#EdTech12) How to Develop Digital Literacies in Yourself and Others [PRESENTATION] Getting started with Digital Literacies [Presentation] Digital literacies and why they’re important… for everyone!

From Classroom to Online, Think “Transform” not “Transfer” by Jane Bozarth “Find out which aspects of the classroom program are most successful ... and which aspects fail. Talk with learners and the classroom instructors, and review any evaluation or follow-up data they are able to provide.” Converting an existing classroom course to an online format can be a tricky, time-consuming undertaking. The easy way out — simply moving the content and lecture portions to an electronic means of delivery — is what leads to e“Learning” at its worst: slide after slide of bulleted information and loss of engaging activities and the contributions of individual instructors. What’s a better way to go? Cut-n-chunk This is a good time to reexamine purpose, intent, and objectives. What’s working? Find out which aspects of the classroom program are most successful — and which aspects fail.
