Instructional Science Instructional Science promotes a deeper understanding of the nature, theory, and practice of the instructional process and resultant learning. Published papers represent a variety of perspectives from the learning sciences and cover learning by people of all ages, in all areas of the curriculum, and in informal and formal learning contexts. Emphasizing reports of original empirical research, the journal stands out by providing space for full and detailed reporting of major studies. These include studies addressing learning processes, learning technology, learner characteristics, and learning outcomes. Regardless of the topic, all papers published in the journal make a contribution to the science of instruction by drawing out the instructional implications of new research on learning. Most years, Instructional Science publishes a guest-edited thematic special issue.
7 Steps to Create Engaging Educational Media Licensed Under CCSA/jsawkins Videos that bore students and are irrelevant to their lives are not true examples of educational media, according to former teacher and film producer Finn Ryan of the Wisconsin Media Lab. “A lot of media used in classroom settings is more instructional, walking [students] through a specific process or explaining something,” Ryan says. ”Educational media is more about engagement than transfer of information.” That’s why he produces films that inspire students to explore the content beyond the video.
Journal for Innovation and Quality in Learning The International Journal for Innovation and Quality in Learning (INNOQUAL) is an open access, open peer-reviewed journal, which provides an international perspective on the theory and practice of innovation and quality in the field of learning at all educational levels and in all training contexts. It focuses on the relationship between innovation and quality in education and seeks contributions that discuss how technology can contribute to the innovation and enhancement of the quality of learning. INNOQUAL gives insights into the scientific discourse about the use of technology in education. It contains important practical recommendations for learners, practitioners and policy makers, promotes new approaches in the field of innovation and quality development for learning, and creates an innovation forum for future oriented quality development of learning. The journal encourages first-rate research articles by academics, but also case studies and reflective articles by practitioners.
International Journal of Emerging Technologies in Learning (iJET) This interdisciplinary journal aims to focus on the exchange of relevant trends and research results as well as the presentation of practical experiences gained while developing and testing elements of technology enhanced learning. So it aims to bridge the gape between pure academic research journals and more practical publications. So it covers the full range from research, application development to experience reports and product descriptions. iJET is an Open Access Journal. Readers don't have to pay any fee.
Educational Technology Research and Development - Association for Educational Communication & Technology Educational Technology Research and Development is the only scholarly journal in the field focusing entirely on research and development in educational technology. The Research Section assigns highest priority in reviewing manuscripts to rigorous original quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods studies on topics relating to applications of technology or instructional design in educational settings. Such contexts include K-12, higher education, and adult learning (e.g., in corporate training settings). Analytical papers that evaluate important research issues related to educational technology research and reviews of the literature on similar topics are also published.
Two Contrasting Views of Educational Technology I’d like to share a couple of videos with you that I have used recently in the courses I teach. I find these videos particularly interesting because they show such contrasting approaches to learning and in particular - for want of a better word - elearning. This first one is from the early 1950’s and is about something called a ‘teaching machine’ which was created by behavioural psychologist B F Skinner. As you see Skinner’s teaching machines, though not exactly iPads do look remarkably like what we would recognise as computers. The Journal of Distance Education / Revue de l'Éducation à Distance The Journal of Distance Education is an international publication of the Canadian Network for Innovation in Education (CNIE). Its aims are to promote and encourage scholarly work in e-learning and distance education and provide a forum for the dissemination of international scholarship. Original material in either English or French is invited in three broad categories: (a) Scholarly articles and research papers that focus on issues related to e-learning and distance education; (b) Reports that highlight unique solutions to critical problems, short descriptions of work underlying new or innovative programs or contemporary events, and brief notes on research in progress; and (c) Dialogues devoted to the discussion or debate of issues in e-learning and distance education that may arouse controversy. Also included here will be papers written in reply to articles published in earlier issues of the Journal. Vol 28, No 1 (2014) Table of Contents
IEEE Computer Society IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies (TLT) is an archival journal published quarterly using a delayed open access publication model. TLT covers research on such topics as Innovative online learning systems, Intelligent tutors, Educational software applications and games, and Simulation systems for education and training. Read the full scope of TLT From the July-September 2015 issue The Official Educator's Guide To YouTube YouTube is a goldmine for content. Yes, it’s also a goldmine for trash and whimsy, but more than anything it’s a kind of circus-mirror reflection of culture. Which should make it useful to teachers. Below is a the official YouTube guide for educators put together by YouTube (Google), and it’s actually very good. Whether you’re using a Flipped Classroom model, increasing your ratio of mobile-to-non-mobile learning, or simply want to increase the presence of digital multimedia in your classroom, stop staring down your nose at it: from TED to Khan Academy, DIY to music, and film to documentaries and self-made snippets, YouTube is the sleeping giant of teaching resources.
International Journal on E-Learning (IJEL) (formerly International Journal of Educational Telecommunications and the WebNet Journal) #4 Journal Ranking in "E-Learning" (H-Index). Advances in technology and the growth of e-learning to provide educators and trainers with unique opportunities to enhance learning and teaching in corporate, government, healthcare, and higher education.
EJEL Abstract: This paper is intended to adds to the emerging dialogue on best practices in teacher education for preparing future teachers to use technology to promote grounded theory‑based practices in their classrooms. In it, I report on an evolving model f or such training that resulted from a a longitudinal case study examiningning how changes to teacher trainees identities, learning and teaching practices changed when they are exposed to the use of a variety of social networking technologies for languag e learning in the context of their teacher preparation program in a private university in Chile. . The 12‑month classroom‑based case study was conducted at a private university in Chile, using a variety of ethnographic tools . observation, interviews, an d online conversation analysis.
