Published on

Join Pepperdine University's Technology and Learning group as we build a course site from the ground up. We will cover topics like course management, setting expectations, chunking, and discussion. We'll explore Site Info, Home, Syllabus, Lessons, and Forums to inform and engage your students. We will wrap up this session with tips/gotchas and look to all participants to share best practices throughout.

  • WelcomeIntros:GerryAlanWe will share information about delivering 21st C. presentationsThe first thing you need to know is that…
  • If Kierkegaard is right, then you must know that 21st century learners face multiple challenges:Brains WIRED differentlyThey face multiple DISTRATIONSThey face the common challenges of HUMAN MEMORY
  • Question audience:“Have you noticed students having shorter attention spans?”Why is that?
  • Question audience:“Have you noticed students having shorter attention spans?”Neuroscientist’s talkDr. Michael Merzenich, neuroscientist, in a presentation called "On re-wiring the brain"That our brains today are drastically different than humans 100 years ago. And their brains were dramatically different than 1000 years ago. Our brains are evolving.http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/michael_merzenich_on_the_elastic_brain.htmlDid you know: 1) IncreasingADHD43% under 2 watch TV every dayAAP: no TV under 22004 study: TV 1-3 is associated with attention problems at age 7
  • Did you know: 1) According to the CDC, there’s evidence that ADHD is on the rise43% of children under 2 watch TV every dayFlies in the face of the fact that (American Academy of Pediatrics) AAP says: no TV under 22004 study: TV 1-3 is associated with attention problems at age 7SOURCE (ADHD): http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/adhd/data.htmlSOURCE (TV and kids): http://www.commonsensemedia.org/advice-for-parents/media-tips-babies-and-toddlersAnd here are some other stats:43% of children under 2 watch TV every dayAccording to CDC statistics, the number of children diagnosed with ADHD has been increasing for the past several years.A2004 study: TV 1-3 is associated with attention problems at age 7
  • “In the [University of] Vermont study, students cycled through an average of 65 new windows per lecture, of which over half were considered distractions.”http://info.lecturetools.com/blog/bid/33186/Professors-Spy-on-College-Students-to-Study-In-Class-Laptop-Use
  • “In the [University of] Vermont study, students cycled through an average of 65 new windows per lecture, of which over half were considered distractions.”http://info.lecturetools.com/blog/bid/33186/Professors-Spy-on-College-Students-to-Study-In-Class-Laptop-Usehttp://www.insidehighered.com/news/2011/05/18/professors_spy_on_students_to_see_how_they_are_using_laptops_in_class
  • So, 21st C. students won’t look here…
  • …when they are be distracted here.65 windows
  • There are limitations to human memoryMeyer suggests that removing clutter and not reading slides – increases retention.Now, we have incredible capacity to perceive information. Sights, sounds, surroundings – we’re aware of a lot of detail.It’s like a house.Outside – is vast – so many things
  • Limitations
  • Our students face challengesBrains wired differentlyMany distractionsAnd all of us have challenges with limits of memoryBut there is hope!What research suggests – that retention is driven by ATTENTIONHow do we get attention?VisualsEmotionStoryAnd Personal meaning
  • So if Alan is correct…If RETENTION hinges on ATTENTION…Then how do we gain the attention of 21st C. learners?
  • …By learning methods that unlock the door to long-term memory (RETENTION).The first of these, I recommend that you…
  • Use Made to Stick principles.Has anyone read this book?Heath Brothers.They follow their own advice.Every chapter/story sticks.They had success in communicating their message. You want have success in communicating yours to 21st C. learners.So, how do you do that…
  • How can you modify your teaching methods so that your lesson plans stick?If the Heath brothers were so good in communicating their ideas, how can you emulate them?How do they spell success? How do you spell success?Well…
  • Be like JaredDoes anyone NOT know who this is?This ad campaign is 13 years old.Do you agree that Subway had SUCCESS communicating it’s message. Know why? The heath brothers do:Simple: Fat Guy Eats Fast Food, Loses weight!Unexpected: Fat guy eats FAST FOOD?!, lose weight?Concrete: those are his pants!Credible: personal testimonial.Emotional: weight loss, registering for classes. Story: protagonist, plot, beginning—middle—end. Subway had SUCCESS. So…
  • Heath brothers have 6 chaptersMST principles improve MESSAGEHow can you apply these to your lessons?Simple: Guns and butterUnexpected: Excel fill handle (intellectual dissonance…tension...oyster) (HOW DO YOU ACTUALLY SPELL SUCCESS?)3) Concrete:4) Credible: 5) Emotional: Relational databases and nefarious nephew.6) Story:
  • Obtain Made to stick; follows its methods.Improves MESSAGEThe 2nd method that we’ll share for communicating with 21st C. learners improves STRUCTUREOur advice to you is to…
  • Our brains are amazing. Hear a piece of information, and three days later you'll remember 10% of it.
  • If you saw an image alone, you’d recall about 35% of the information.
  • If you heard a piece of information and added a picture, three days later you’d still remember 65%.
  • Pictures beat text as well, in part because reading is so inefficient for us. Our brain sees words as lots of tiny pictures, and we have to identify certain features in the letters to be able to read them. That takes time.
  • This is a slide from a PowerPoint I created a number of years ago. It is heavy on text and not very memorable or compelling
  • Here is an updated slide with the shortened definition of “Vocalics.” The image captures the “auditory stimuli” concept and is less text heavy
  • This is a second slide with an image and less text for examples of “vocalics.” Landon, you might be able to find a better image than this one and if so please feel free to replace it in this slide (I’m not very pleased with the resolution of this image)
  • time permittingMultiple choice, multiple correct penalizes wrong answersMatching: the “match” is the item to be listed up top; the “choice” is the list of options to select

    26. 26. Gotchas & RemindersLessons!!Gotchas:!•  Be careful when naming subpages. Try to use unique names toavoid file and folder organization problems in Resources.!•  When embedding a YouTube, use the "Share" link (e.g. http://youtu.be/_A-ZVCjfWf8) not the link in your browser address bar.!
Reminders:!•  Map out your structure and be mindful that youll create all toplevel subpages on the home page of Lessons.!•  You modify the properties of a subpage by the "edit" button on itsparent page.!•  The "Index of Pages" is very, very helpful for navigation and allowsstudents to see what has been completed (and what hasnt).!!

    37. 37. A VERY IMPORTANT HEADING ISHERE•  My brilliant words are placed here.•  I am standing at the front of the room, so I must be an authority.•  You will accept what I say as the truth.•  You will not challenge me.•  You will absorb everything like a sponge.•  You will ask for more and more information and love every word.•  Your life will be so much better because you took my class. Aren’t yougrateful?•  If a tree falls in the forest and I’m not there to hear it, I don’t care if it makesa sound since I wasn’t there. Of course, if it fell on my cabin or my dog Bozo,then I would be upset. I would also likely sue the Forestry Service.•  For every book that you own, I own four times as many.•  I get angry at the grocery store since the sign “10 items or less” is incorrect.It’s “10 items or fewer.” They should have asked me.•  The other day, someone called me arrogant. I said, “If I say confidently thatthe sky is blue, am I arrogant or accurate? Don’t hate me because I amaccurate.”•  And that’s all I have to say about that.

    113. 113. Gotchas & RemindersGradebook!
Gotchas:!•  Use Leading zeroes when ordering GB items (as GB is strictlyalpha-numeric)!•  Grade override (not a number, but the letter grade that you want todisplay; displays minimum percentage value for that grade;consequently override UP, NEVER DOWN)!
Reminders:!•  Due dates (all or nothing; sorts by due date, then item name)!•  Entering grades: up to 2 decimal points. E.g. 90.5, 90.75, but not98.875  (does not round but rather truncates)!
