Blended Learning Tips and Techniques 02-11

  1. 1. Blended Learning<br />Tips & Techniques<br />
  2. 2. In this session<br />Using Paper.li to create an online newspaper for your modules<br />Can we use wordscapes (with wordle or other) to summarise or highlight module content<br />Using about.me to provide a loosely coupled e-portfolio for students<br />Adaptive release in Blackboard – what can I do with it?<br />
  3. 3. Paper.li<br />
  4. 4. What is Paper.li?<br />Paper.li is a newspaper generated from the links shared (and tweets) in a twitter feed which could be:<br />Your own + those you follow<br />A hashtag (twitters term for a meta tag)<br />A list<br />
  5. 5. How it could be used<br />As an aggregated interest resource for a group, module or a programme<br />
  6. 6. How it could be used<br />Add supplementary or additional content for activities, workshops, modules<br />and independent learning<br />
  7. 7. The other bits<br />You don’t need to actively tweet to create a paper, just follow relevant tweeters<br />You can refine what/whose tweets are contributed to the paper by: <br />Setting up lists<br />Using twitter queries<br />Doesn’t work with private accounts or tweets<br />
  8. 8. Lets Discuss<br />Can Wordscapes be used to summarise/highlight content<br />
  9. 9. Wordle<br />Wordle (Wordle.net) generates infographics from textual content it is provided<br />As pasted text<br />From a URL<br />From a Delicious social bookmarking user<br />Generates the graphic based on frequency and removal of stop words<br />
  10. 10. Examples<br />
  11. 11. Module Guide<br />CI2611: Data Server Technology<br />
  12. 12. Module Content<br />CI1171: BusinessOrganisation Practice<br />
  13. 13. So…<br />Wordle is probably a bit simplistic in terms of general operation<br />We could ‘game’ Wordle to generate infographics that can better act as advance organisers<br />Alternatively we could do the same with PowerPoint or other suitable tool<br />We could just provide only a list of keywords or tags for the content. <br />
  14. 14. About.me as a frontend for open e-portfolio<br />
  15. 15. In use<br />
  16. 16. What is About.me and how could we utilise it<br />A personal splash page with a dashboard<br />Use to consolidate the different web tools we use and have a single point of identity <br />
  17. 17. We could then enable students to take a more open approach to their portfolio construction and pdp activities should they wish<br />It’s outward facing from the get go with privacy control being managed and owned by themselves <br />Not a competitor or a replacement for a dedicated e-portfolio system. A different route to a shared goal: <br />demonstrate competence and build identity<br />
