How to Conduct QM Research Linking Online Course Design and Implementation to Learning Outcomes 2011 QM Research Grant supported study done by Swan, Bogle, Matthews, & Day at University of Illinois/Springfield The Community of Inquiry (CoI) framework (Garrison, Anderson & Archer, 2000), on the other hand, does address learning processes. It addresses them, moreover, from a collaborative constructivist point of view. Building from the notion of social presence, the CoI framework represents online learning experiences as a function of relationships among three presences: social, teaching, and cognitive. The CoI framework views all three as working together to support deep and meaningful learning processes.

Emma — EMMAths: Learning and Teaching Emma works in an FE/HE College in Northern Lincolnshire where she teaches maths and PGCE students. Previously, she worked in an Inner London Secondary, was Head of Maths at an 11-16 school in Grimsby and coordinated GCSE and Functional Skills maths at a sixth form college.

: 5 Maths Gems #112 Welcome to my 112th gems post. This is where I share some of the latest news, ideas and resources for maths teachers. 1. Classic Errors I like this activity suggested by James Tanton (@jamestanton). James asks 'Would taking classic and tempting errors "head-on" be a worthwhile classroom activity and discussion?'. It's worth reading the responses in the thread. Tools: Social Bookmarking – Beyond another Paper Social bookmarking tools help you organize and share links to articles, videos, images, websites, social media – any online content you wish to collect. You can also share your collections with colleagues and students. This is a great way to provide students with links to resources for research and exploration. Why Use a Special Tool Instead of Posting a List of Links in a Doc? Social bookmarking tools are created for the sole purpose of helping you curate resources. They are already set up to open links in new tabs, they usually pull in site descriptions, and clearly indicate where the person who clicks on the link is heading.

For this activity I took a look at MERLOT II. MERLOT is a system built to help teachers develop evaluations for their students along with providing a peer review process for online teaching material. MERLOT has premade lesson plans and actives a teacher can use along with providing templates for teachers to create their own lesson plans. There is a browse option, where students can browse by subject matter and search for a more specific topic within that subject. I looked through the Science and Technology and fond a lesson on cells called “Cells Alive!” There are even comments and reviews you can read through to see how others used this information and what they did and did not like about it. Which is also helpful, as different teachers and students will have different needs and the reviews are a great way for them to find out what does and does not meet their needs. by smt210 Apr 16
