Blended Learning Tips and Techniques 02-11 Blended Learning Tips and Techniques 02-11 Presentation Transcript

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