Talk:Blended Learning

From WikiEducator
Jump to: navigation, search

This is the first page in this wiki attempting to develop some ideas on blended learning in courses for 16-18 year olds (A levels in UK).

I've included a quote from elearnspace.org. This site has a link to the Creative Commons License and I think I can include the quote with reference made to the author and a link to the site. This is ok for copyright rules, right? --Yvonne 13:14, 16 September 2007 (CEST)
I'm pretty sure that's OK. Seems to be pretty standard blogging practice. You might want to add some quotes, because if I hadn't read your comment here I would assume that you were paraphrasing Siemens in your page.--David McQuillan 20:20, 2 November 2007 (CET)
Thanks David. I've added quotes. I thought that using blockquote meant I didn't have to do quotation marks but you're right it makes sense to have them. --Yvonne 10:35, 5 November 2007 (CET)
Re: Wordprocessing/Spreadsheets
Have you considered the use of google docs & spreadsheets? It seems to me that these collaborative tools lend themselves to some different types of class activities than what can be done with desktop software.--David McQuillan 20:48, 2 November 2007 (CET)
I'll add a link. I've looked at these and they look usable, just don't have the opportunity to try them out with a class at present. --Yvonne 10:35, 5 November 2007 (CET)
Thanks for that link to Wikipedia's description of a LMS - I needed something like that.--David McQuillan 20:48, 2 November 2007 (CET)
Re: Using Web 2.0 tools
Pageflakes is a great way of bringing a whole set of feeds together into the same page. You can then publish your page so that it has a URL which you can give to your class.--David McQuillan 20:48, 2 November 2007 (CET)
I looked at your pageflakes - nice central point for a range of blogs. Thanks. --Yvonne 10:35, 5 November 2007 (CET)
Have a look at [Computer Literacy Resources] there might be some useful resources for you & your page there.--David McQuillan 20:48, 2 November 2007 (CET)
Yes - it's good isn't it! I've read through it - just not got to the links yet. But thanks for the pointer :)--Yvonne 10:35, 5 November 2007 (CET)

Networked learning page on WikiEducator and questions

Yvonne - this page is looking great! I have added a link to the Networked learning page on WikiEducator as there is a lot of material and links already there about Using Web 2.0 tools which will save you some time. You can either link to it or take the bits you need - in this environment we can take and still need to acknowledge the authors.

I was wondering what you were intending by the "Features" headings? I also have a couple of questions relating to the Issues for ‘blending’ section:

1. How could you address diverse skill levels when using web 2.0 tools - wikiEducator materials perhaps? sessions f2f as well? 2. I was wondering if Albion's site covered issues such as confidentiality and privacy around public blogs and teaching. It might be a good idea to make this more explicit - what do you think? 3. would students and teachers be best to negotiate expectations or would you set ground rules? --bron 01:47, 13 November 2007 (CET)

Issues for ‘blending’

  1. Skill level and experience of learners will need to be considered when planning first use of these tools.
  2. Communicating effectively online is an issue and some thought will need to be given some rules/guidelines for writing in this medium. Try Albion's excellent netiquette resource page for more information.
  3. Expectations for student and facilitator will need to be explored early on in the process.
