Sosiaalisen median opetuskäytön suositukset Sosiaalinen media on lyhyessä ajassa tullut merkittäväksi osaksi yhteiskuntaa. Se tuo jokaiselle mahdollisuuden vaikuttaa ja oppia aktiivisesti osallistuen ja yhdessä työskennellen. Sosiaalisen median opetuskäytön linjausten tavoitteena on edistää sellaisten toimintatapojen muotoutumista, jotka luovat kaikille oppijoille tasavertaiset mahdollisuudet oppia hyödyntämään sosiaalista mediaa osana mediataitoja ja ymmärtämään sosiaalisen median roolia yhteiskunnassa. Sosiaalisen median opetuskäytön suositukset jakaantuvat kahteen osaan. Ensimmäisessä osassa tarkastellaan sosiaalisen median käyttölinjauksia osana tietostrategiaa.

Educreations Interactive Whiteboard | Providing lesson plans and teaching resources on money management to help teachers of financial capability Our Story for iPad: The Best Digital Storytelling App for Young Writers There are a lot of digital storytelling apps for the iPad. Each is just a little bit different from the others, but one stands out among the others, at least for me, because of its simplicity, ease of use, and ability to tell great stories. On top of all that, it is 100% free! Open the app for the first time and you are greeted with three choices Get Started, Create a New Story, or Use Existing Story. To begin adding story details, tap on the image you want to use in the timeline at the bottom of the screen. If you want to return to the story to work on it later, press the save button (the floppy disc icon) to store your progress for another day. Overall it is a great app. Otherwise, I think this is a very worthy app for any elementary or primary classroom, and can be a great way for you to create digital stories with your students.

Verkko-opetuksen pedagogisia malleja Tutkijat ja opettajat ovat vuosien saatossa kehittäneet lukuisia erilaisia ja muunneltuja opetusmenetelmiä ja lähestumistapoja opetukseen. Seuraavassa on kuvattu lyhyesti muutamia yleisimmin verkko-opetuksessa käytettyjä pedagogisia malleja. Ankkuroitu opetus Ankkuroitu opetus (anchored learning): oppimista, jossa aktiviteetit on sidottu tiiviisti reaalimaailman tilanteisiin (ankkureihin); ongelmatilanteet ratkaistaan ryhmässä; rohkaisee oppijoita näkemään tiedon työkaluna, jota voidaan käyttää uusissa tilanteissa, sen sijaan, että opeteltaisiin vain faktoja [21] Cognition and Technology Group at Vanderbilt (1993) Anchored instruction and situated cognition revised. Kognitiivinen oppipoika Kognitiivisen oppipoikamallin (cognitive apprenticeship) tarkoituksena on opettaa oppijalle asiantuntijoiden käyttämiä kognitiivisia prosesseja eli ajattelu- ja toimintamalleja.
