Transcript of "Larry Copes on eLearning"

  1. 1. Larry Copes I can help you envision and implement, through eLearning, a more mature and civil global society.
  2. 2. Adapt school curricula to support different learning styles <ul><li>This prototype web site on ellipses was designed in 1996 using only html. </li></ul><ul><li>Formal, investigative, and modeling “tours” visit concept pages in different orders and with different transitions. </li></ul><ul><li>The site still gets more than 200 hits per month. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Encourage learning in the context of problems <ul><li>A grant supported the development of this web site on discrete mathematics . </li></ul><ul><li>Launch problems led to exploration of concepts, practice, and extensions. </li></ul><ul><li>Although old, it shows that problem-based learning for creative problem solving can be implemented online. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Use games to teach pattern recognition and independent thinking <ul><li>There are many online simulations of this game . </li></ul><ul><li>By not judging answers, this version supports players’ emotional comfort and independent thinking. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Use simulations for learning to experiment and investigate <ul><li>The Teaching Simulator™ puts players in a simulated classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>Players experiment to learn how decisions affect their class. </li></ul><ul><li>The simulations induce powerful discussions of both pegagogy and content. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Use games to teach critical thinking as well as content <ul><li>The Odysseys2sense site hosts game-like forums concerning international issues as well as course-related content. </li></ul><ul><li>Players earn power by posting anonymous entries that other players rate highly. </li></ul><ul><li>Rating criteria include completeness, accuracy, curiosity, critical thinking, helpfulness, and civility. </li></ul>
  7. 7. More about me <ul><li>I hold a PhD in mathematics education. </li></ul><ul><li>I’ve taught mathematics, computer science, and math education. </li></ul><ul><li>As a freelance editor, I’ve edited secondary mathematics texts and other materials. </li></ul><ul><li>I can program in many computer languages, including PHP and Flash, but my main strength is as the idea person. </li></ul>
  8. 8. How can I help you envision and implement, through eLearning, a more mature and civil global society? <ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul><ul><li>651/451-3720 cell 651/357-6735 </li></ul><ul><li>www.larrycopes.com </li></ul><ul><li>www.copesblogs.com </li></ul>
