- Three Things We Need To Remember For Every Professional Development There are lots of ideas out there as to why teachers don't want to engage in PD. Many times the PD, when it is required, isn't meaningful. When I was in the classroom I was part of a team that helped to decide the direction our PD at the school level would take. On the flip side, at the district level, teachers rarely got to choose the direction of the PD. However, one theme that came up again and again was maybe too much blame was being placed on teachers and district administrators. What do you think? A New Pedagogy is Emerging...And Online Learning is a Key Contributing Factor In all the discussion about learning management systems, open educational resources (OERs), massive open online courses (MOOCs), and the benefits and challenges of online learning, perhaps the most important issues concern how technology is changing the way we teach and - more importantly - the way students learn. For want of a better term, we call this “pedagogy.” What is clear is that major changes in the way we teach post-secondary students are being triggered by online learning and the new technologies that increase flexibility in, and access to, post-secondary education. In looking at what these pedagogical changes are and their implications for students, faculty, staff, and institutions, we consider: What drives the development of this new pedagogy? New Demands of a Knowledge-Based Society There are several separate factors at work here. Lastly, it means developing students with the skills to manage their own learning throughout life, so they can continue to learn after graduation.

Predicting the future? Where is scholarly communication headed - Networked Researcher While it is often futile to attempt to predict the future of anything, that is what I am going to try to do here. I will also include some elements of a future that I would like to see–not necessarily the future that I think will happen. In the area of libraries, there has been a spate of blog posts and articles concerning the future of libraries (for example, see here, here, here, and here), including both academic libraries and public libraries. I am mostly going to concentrate on the journal publishing business side of scholarly communication. You may ask yourself, why should we try to predict the future of scholarly communication? Enough of the back story. Scholars and researchers will continue to use articles as the means to communicate research results, but the structure of article communication will change. At some point, when administrators become more familiar with altmetric use indicators, the value of the journal as a container will go down, and the situation will flip.

Professional Development for Educators What is the Arizona Technology Integration Matrix? The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K-12 students. The TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments: active, collaborative, constructive, authentic, and goal directed (Jonassen, Howland, Moore, & Marra, 2003). The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. What is in each cell? Within each cell of the Matrix one will find two lessons plans with a short video of the lesson.

Use this TIM tutorial to get more information on how to use it in your classroom practice.

La formation en ligne est là pour rester et croître, spécialement en éducation post-secondaire. Sir John Daniels prédit une transformation importante des universités. Dans ce vidéo de 7 minutes, Sir John Daniels démontre que l’industrialisation de l’éducation, avec les avantages indéniables coté qualité et économie d’échelle, fait en sorte que le secteur privé est en train de s’accaparer l’éducation en ligne à moins que le secteur public cesse de privilégier le modèle artisanal et commence à travailler en équipe et avec des spécialisations de fonctions et le souci du «client». Si on ajoute de plus l’utilisation des ressources ouvertes, où il est possible de produire et de profiter de ressources de qualité gratuitement, on s’aperçoit que des changements profonds se préparent en éducation post-secondaire.

5 Tips to Help Teachers Who Struggle with Technology "I'm not very tech savvy" is the response I usually hear from teachers that struggle with technology. Whether it's attaching a document to an email or creating a PowerPoint, some teachers really have a difficult time navigating the digital world. As schools around the globe begin to embed the use of technology in their learning environments, these teachers can be left feeling frustrated and marginalized by the new tools they are required to use but do not understand. The school where I teach is currently within its post-BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) implementation age. We started with a small cohort of tech-savvy teachers to pilot a BYOD program with selected classes. If you plan on introducing a new technology or are embarking on the mighty task of becoming a wireless BYOD school, here are five tips to help your teachers still struggling with technology. 1. Integrating technology can be very stressful for educators that aren't familiar with it. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Are you ready to MOOC? A conversation with George Siemens In this episode of the Learning Revolution podcast I talk with George Siemens, one of the leading thinkers on how technology is impacting learning and education. One of the areas the areas that George has become known for, along with his collaborator Stephen Downes, is massive open online courses, or MOOCs. You may have noticed that MOOCs have become quite trendy lately. MIT and Harvard are among the very well-known institutions that have gotten into the MOOC game. Start-ups like Udacity and Coursera are also grabbing a lot of attention. I actually conducted this interview (like all of the other initial interviews on the podcast) several months ago as I was writing Leading the Learning Revolution. In any case, in this interview I talk with George about the massive online course phenomenon – including what kind of business models might emerge for them. Click play, and enjoy.

Video, links from Monday's App Slam at SpotOn London November 14, 2012 At Digital Science, we work to develop software internally as well as support other scientific startups working to craft tools to enable more efficient research through better use of technology. We have a keen interest in scientific software, and wanted to open up the floor to the SpotOn London attendees this past Monday to hear about tools they were developing to help researchers or ones they find especially useful in circumnavigating a problem. Following an open call, we selected nine projects and tools for the App Slam, and invited a representative from each on stage to tell us more for 5 minutes. To help frame the session, we set four categories for submissions based on the tool's target area for application: literature review, experimentation, analysis and measurement and finally publication and dissemination. Video for the session is now up, which you can access here.
