Any teacher worth their salt assesses, and then revises planned instruction based on data from those assessments. They manage their classroom in a way that works for them, create a positive learning environment, and (great teachers especially) collaborate with a variety of stakeholders to make sure every humanly possible attempt is made to meet all students need. 7 Characteristics Of Teachers Who Effectively Use Technology 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

TED-Ed TED (Tecnología, Entretenimiento, Diseño) es una organización sin fines de lucro dedicada a difundir ideas valiosas. TED-Ed es una iniciativa de TED que nos permite crear lecciones personalizadas tomando como base las publicadas en su espacio web o bien crearlas desde cero a partir de vídeos de YouTube. El pasado mes de marzo, Ted puso en marcha un canal en YouTube formado por una docena de vídeos creados especialmente para estudiantes universitarios y gente interesada en aprender. Ahora arranca la segunda fase del proyecto con la plataforma TED-Ed, una web diseñada para permitir a los profesores crear lecciones en torno a los vídeos. TED-Ed es la videoteca educativa de TED, en palabras de sus creadores, “el compromiso de crear lecciones que merezca la pena compartir. Los vídeos ya publicados, de contrastada calidad, tienen materiales complementarios como pueden ser preguntas de opción múltiple, preguntas de respuesta abierta, y enlaces para ampliar información sobre el tema.
SiteMaker --- Online Website Builder.url SCORM Explained What is SCORM? SCORM is a set of technical standards for e-learning software products. SCORM tells programmers how to write their code so that it can “play well” with other e-learning software. It is the de facto industry standard for e-learning interoperability. Can you help me with an example or analogy? Let’s take DVDs for example. The SCORM standard makes sure that all e-learning content and LMSs can work with each other, just like the DVD standard makes sure that all DVDs will play in all DVD players. The Cost of Content Integration What does SCORM stand for? SCORM stands for “Sharable Content Object Reference Model”. “Sharable Content Object” indicates that SCORM is all about creating units of online training material that can be shared across systems. “Reference Model” reflects the fact that SCORM isn’t actually a standard. Do you produce SCORM? No. So how do you guys fit in the picture? We’re here to help you make sense of SCORM. What’s the future of SCORM? How can I learn more?

Understand These 10 Principles of Good Design Before You Start Your Next eLearning Project Understand These 10 Principles of Good Design Before You Start Your Next eLearning Project Wether you are just getting started with eLearning design and looking to get a better understanding of eLearning best practices, or you've been designing courses for a while and are trying to find ways of making your material more effective, considering the basics of visual design is key. Design is too often overlooked by course developers, or otherwise misunderstood – some eLearning designers think that as long as their course "looks good," the visuals are sufficient. But graphical composition and design affect the way a learner takes in information, so giving a bit more thought to the visual layout of the pages of your course is an important part of eLearning best practices. 1. The placement of the elements on each page should flow naturally from one to the next in a progression that lends itself to the content you're teaching. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
