Can Foreign Languages Go Digital with Online Education? Professionals question whether students can learn foreign languages online.Today, enrollment in online courses is growing at a faster rate than that of overall higher education, and more schools are striving to increase their web-based programs. However, while many courses made an easy transition to online education, some schools have struggled to create high-quality foreign language degree programs that are offered exclusively over the Internet. Professionals Have Their Doubts Today, online education has largely become accepted as an integral part of learning; however, some professionals question whether foreign languages in particular can be studied exclusively online. Learning a new language requires a great deal of speaking, hearing and social interaction, these individuals say, which simply cannot be provided through the internet. The partnership forced many academic professionals to consider whether foreign language can and should be taught online.

(And we're not just talking kids, either.) We've pinpointed 12 social media mistakes that students should avoid at all costs, because after all, it's never as simple as "be responsible." Please head to the comments below to add your own contributions and advice for young adults on social media. 1.

The Curious Case of the Flipped-Bloom's Meme (This is the sequel to 'Anatomy of a (Flipped) Meme') rss / email subscribe / follow Steve Last post I dug up the history of the Flipped Classroom idea. Do a google image search for Bloom's and see what shapes you get: The very first image has been FLIPPED upside down! Never Meant to Be One Way Of course, Bloom's taxonomy was never meant to be linear or sequential. The version I always knew was a pyramid: But as with the general flipped learning meme, if you look you can find plenty of examples dating back years. This looks like a flipped pyramid right here, dating from 2001: And the taxonomy was revised in 2000 by Loren Anderson, who also appears to have turned it upside down, although I can't get a really good reference for this. Much criticism has been levelled at Bloom's, but although "a more radical approach would be to have no taxonomy at all" (2003), human beings LOVE a taxonomy, especially one with a one-syllable name and a nice stable pyramid under it!

Raising good digital citizens At a glance Today's kids need new skills to behave safely and responsibly online. Good digital citizenship follows the same basic rules as good citizenship in the offline world. Filters only prevent some kinds of unsuitable material being accessed via your computer; parents still need to be vigilant. It's important for parents to model good online behaviour – such as courtesy, obeying the law (not downloading something illegally) and protecting yourself. We're always reminding our kids to "pick up after yourself" and "cover your mouth when you cough", but lately many parents have had to add rules like "don't bring your mobile to the dinner table" and more importantly, "don't use my credit card to shop online". We're the first generation of parents responsible for equipping our children with ‘digital citizenship' skills – how to use technology safely and responsibly, and how to evaluate, manage and use the information and tools they find online.

Does Curiosity Guide Children's Learning? Suppose you observe this unlikely scene: A warm-blooded six-year-old is offered a plateful of droopy steamed broccoli or a luscious chocolate cupcake, and he chooses the broccoli. This curious incident violates our collective expectations about children’s food preferences, our “Childhood Taste Theory,” if you will. According to CTT, chocolate cupcakes trump everything green or cruciferous. So Broccoli Boy’s behavior suggests that CTT needs to be seriously revised. There's a third option, especially if your curiosity has been piqued, and that's to seek additional information. Now you have a way to preserve your Childhood Taste Theory in light of the curious observation. This pattern of reasoning is sometimes referred to as “explaining away.” This may sound pretty sophisticated, but a new paper published in finds that children as young as 6-year-old Broccoli Boy can carry out this kind of reasoning.
