Why You Need To Use Storytelling For Learning
SumoMe I’m sure you’ve heard by now that storytelling can make learning more effective. Stories help us process and remember information. In my desire to become a better storyteller, I attended a session on the subject while at the Presentation Summit, a conference where the topics overlap surprisingly well with the interests of training professionals and learning specialists.

Livre blanc "la démarche ePortfolio dans l'enseignement supérieur français" Les dispositifs ePortfolio Les dispositifs ePortfolio visent à rassembler, dans un environnement numérique, un ensemble de documents et de ressources électroniques qui décrit et illustre l'apprentissage ou la carrière d'une personne, ses expériences, ses travaux et ses compétences. Ils intéressent très directement l'enseignement supérieur pour la formation initiale et tout au long de la vie (formalisation des parcours et des référentiels, nouvelles modalités d'acquisition et de repérage des compétences, ...) et pour l'insertion professionnelle (valorisation des acquis et expériences). En France, il fait pour le moment l'objet d'expériences ponctuelles, de plus ou moins grande ampleur. Ces expériences posent la question de l'inscription de la démarche ePortfolio dans des politiques d'établissement voire interuniversitaires et celle du passage à des publics plus larges.

CenterPoint: The Online National Video Magazine for Online Educators Did you know that in education, quality matters is more than a saying, but an actual not-for-profit organization? In 2003, MarylandOnline began a three-year grant program to develop standards to certify online courses and materials. This greatly impacted teaching and learning, and Quality Matters gained state and national recognition. When the grant expired in 2006, Quality Matters continued on and now has more than 550 subscribers comprised of universities, colleges, technical schools, and other academic organizations, including University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Texas A & M University, Penn State, and Regent University. Today, Quality Matters has trained over 10,000 faculty and staff and is the gold standard for online course design. To learn more about Quality Matters, visit www.qmprogram.org. Another important standard Quality Matters addresses is "accessibility." Before you can use CaptionTube, you need to be able to access videos on YouTube.

As a way to vote, Jane allows people to write about their choices. Ten of my favorites are below.
