Case studies for flipped classrooms at the University of Queensland, Australia The following case studies demonstrate a variety of approaches that teachers at UQ are taking to flip their classrooms. Teaching staff were interviewed from the six faculties across UQ to explore the pedagogical reasons for flipping, the educational technologies used and how their teaching has changed. Each case study is accompanied by a summary in PDF format. Andrew Fairbairn This study examines how using the flipped classroom model provides opportunities to design and deliver courses using active learning and engagement strategies to facilitate students’ teamwork, problem solving and critical thinking skills in a collegial environment.

10 Big Concerns About Tablets In The Classroom As we look into integrating tablets in the classroom, it’s becoming increasingly clear that buying tablets for the purpose of enhancing learning is very different to buying tablets for recreational purposes such as browsing Facebook and entertainment sites, or even for more serious pursuits such as business or work. Parents and teachers need to consider a myriad of issues specific to young people. But are these concerns warranted? The so-called generational “digital divide” (parents and teachers being largely digital immigrants, and kids being digital natives) can lead to unexamined assumptions about how kids will use (or misuse) mobile technology. For example, did you know that the idea of kids becoming addicted to tablets is actually a myth? We didn’t either, until we examined the actual evidence from our school trials. Read on for the top ten things you need to understand fully when considering tablets for children and teens. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. This is a common concern.

Select teaching technology with SECTIONS As the demand for eLearning grows, we see more teachers turning to technologies to support or deliver their teaching. Good guidance in the selection of the appropriate technologies is often missing. All too often, we see teachers falling for the glossy technologies and spending time and money pursuing them at the expense of the learning of their students. On the other hand, whilst learning is the primary goal, other considerations are also important: most obviously, cost in time and money. In fact, the selection of appropriate teaching and learning technologies is not necessarily straightforward because those decisions have many impacts. Tony Bates and Gary Poole (2003) examined using technology in teaching prior to the iPhone (and other smartphones), iPad, Facebook and Twitter!

Selecting Technologies This page helps you choose among various technologies (not just LMSs) using two approaches: examples of learning outcomes, the kinds of learning activities that could achieve those outcomes, and how those activities could be supported by various learning technologies examples of the tools you may be interested in using and the types of activities and learning outcomes that are likely to be relevant. Table 1: Sample learning outcomes, rationales and activities The following table provides examples of learning outcomes, the kinds of learning activities that promote those outcomes, and how the activities could be supported by learning technologies. Table 2: Tools related to activities, and their contribution to learning outcomes The following table provides examples of the tools you may be interested in using and looks at the types of activities and learning outcomes that are likely to be relevant.

8 concepts pour une pédagogie ouverte et hybride | Jeff T@vernier Au travers de mes nombreuses lectures sur la pensée et l’apprentissage à l’heure du numérique, 8 concepts semblent revenir : Cognition : avec les avancées de l’imagerie cérébrale, impossible aujourd’hui de ne pas tenir compte des processus mentaux qui se rapportent à la fonction de connaissance, de mémorisation, du langage, du raisonnement et de l’apprentissage dans la construction de dispositif pédagogiques. Communication : l’acte d’apprendre reste un acte social et d’échange. La relation avec l’enseignant et ses pairs sont au coeur du processus d’apprentissage. Collaboration : à l’heure de l’intelligence collective, il s’agit d’insister sur la co-construction dans l’horizontalité des relations humaines. Compétences : il s’agit de veiller à donner du sens aux connaissances pour les mettre en pratique au travers de capacités et d’attitudes qui permettront de construire des compétences transférables dans d’autres contextes, hors des murs de l’école.

Constructing Learning Outcomes Learning outcomes explicitly state what we want students to know, understand, or be able to do as a result of completing their chosen course. Learning Outcomes Should : 1) Represent real goals Paul Ramsden suggests that, rather than describing facts or procedures, we should describe concepts that students need to understand as well as relations between those concepts. 2) Be clearly expressed so that their meanings are explicit 3) Place academic skills or personal learning in the context of the particular subject discipline Different disciplines have different understandings of common academic terms such as "critical thinking", "analysis", "communication skills". 4) Include a description of the kind of performances by which achievement will be judged (either within the outcome or in an associated set of assessment criteria) Susan Toohey suggests setting out the assessment tasks and the criteria by which these will be marked. 6) Be memorable and limited in number Further information

JOLT - Journal of Online Learning and Teaching Natalia V. Smirnova Instructor of English as a Second Language Department of Foreign Languages National Research University Higher School of Economics Saint Petersburg RUSSIA Irina V. Introduction Presentation skills have gained attention both in higher education and among business trainers, as they constitute one of the core competencies of a professional (Linardopoulos, 2010; Raybould & Sheedy, 2005). Courses aimed at teaching oral presentation skills are traditionally conducted in a face-to-face environment, despite the remarkable growth of online learning that has occurred in higher education. This case study describes how the Department of Foreign Languages at the Saint Petersburg Campus of the National Research University Higher School of Economics used a learning management system (LMS) to improve students' academic presentation skills by developing their reflective learning skills.

Création de vidéos en vue de la classe inversée: Méthodologie L’extension Screencastify de Google est une fonction qu’on ajoute gratuitement et simplement au fureteur Chrome. Sceencastify permet d’enregistrer une vidéo au départ d’une webcam, qu’elle soit intégrée dans votre ordinateur ou ajoutée par câble USB comme c'est le cas pour l’achat d’équipement suggéré au point 4 de l'introduction, sous Équipement. En plus de gérer les périphériques en détectant votre caméra, cette méthode a l’avantage de prendre en charge les considérations techniques (applications, codecs, formats de fichiers, etc.) et de partager la vidéo directement dans YouTube, ce qui épargne maints tracas de déploiements lorsqu'il s'agit, comme dans le cas présent, d'une communauté qui utilise différents équipements, systèmes d’exploitation et logiciels Nous avons opté pour une suite d’outils distribuée dans le nuage et appartenant essentiellement à la famille des produits Google. Vous devrez aussi ajouter l’extension Screencastify à Google Chrome. Avant de commencer, veuillez : Audio
