Rabbit holes?

March 26, 2017

My Internet Saturday Morning involved a twitter request for OER for vocational programs for math… without too many answers since its Friday afternoon posting.  I linked to my spare-time-not-quite-fledglings … and hopefully this week I can make an even bigger dent on things, tho’ students will be back and they come first. I didn’t put in […]

For Blendkit2017

So, I get to the opinion that while constructivists’ ideas are correct, their teaching methods aren’t so effective… that experts should guide novices. Reminds me of Julie Dirksen’s book _Design for How People LEarn_ and this page (which I found on “Google Books”) so I didn’t even have to take a picture 🙂 ) . […]

Math on the edge

https://mathontheedge.wordpress.com/2016/11/18/one-what/  Sigh, I *need* to be working on the Canvas project.  (I need to find my *&* wallet.) Still, watching these videos of students thinking and processing is so affirming.   HEre’s you’re PhD project, people:   interview (or hypnotize) students who score poorly on these college math assessment tests. Find out just how many […]

wine and blog :)

I sipped wine and skimmed the last 5 years of blogging. Alas, it didn’t really help with my “what was I doing, when?”  as much as I’d hoped.   I did find the elusive video of “counting stick multiplication” per https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXdHGBfoqfw  (I hadn’t been able to find it from memory). … and oh, my, I miss […]

Another conference lurk, Canvas

So!   Enrollment is open for the “Instructional Design Service COurse: Gain Experience for Good” course in the fall (beginning September 12). We’re invited back and seems the folks at Canvas find the course worthy of giving us all free accounts.   Now, it may be their standard “free for teachers” account so they’re not actually […]

Saw this nifty thing in Edutopia:  http://www.edutopia.org/blog/encouraging-neurodiversity-in-makerspace-classroom-patrick-waters It’s rather in contrast to one of the videos in the MOOC on ed tech I’m dabbling in, where a guy extolled “cognitive tutors” and stated that learners follow the same path, if a complex one (and, oh, that nobody has time to actually hone tutoring skills so […]

No, really, blended learning chapter one :)

I’m enjoying this chapter introducing “blended learning,” though as with just about everything educational I’ve ever read, parts of it could be condensed and simplified 🙂 It notes that “Although fully online learning has become well established in higher education, many institutions appear to be struggling with conceptualizing and implementing blended learning.”    I’m not […]
