Venturing Beyond the Walled Garden: Building Online Learning Activities Outside of the Learning Management System that Allow for Flexible, Adaptable and Meaningful Learning

434 views

Published on

If we want to motivate and engage students to learn in ways that will be longer-lasting and more meaningful to them, we need to design rich learning experiences that facilitate this through flexible and adaptable activities and assignments. Learning management systems (aka walled gardens) provide teachers and learners a safe and controlled space for threaded discussions, storing grades, uploading assignments, posting content, communicating notices, and deploying some constructed assessment components like quizzes.

However, learning management environments are limited in their abilities to engage students in deep learning and meaningful educational activities. To do so, requires instructors to move beyond the walled garden into a less organized and less controlled digital world.

In this session, we will outline supportive teaching strategies and learning activities (facilitated by the digital environment) that promote higher levels of engagement for learning – and are accessible and relatively easy to implement using open practices and resources.

This learning happens outside the walled garden and requires careful consideration and attention to care for the students and the learning they will embark upon. But where to start? There are so many options, tools, apps, platforms and parameters to consider when designing a more open and flexible learning experience.

Using a collection of evidence-based principles of learning, we’ll outline how designing rich online learning experiences may be easier than you think.

Participants will be exposed to 7 key learning principles and appropriate tools to use within and outside of learning systems. We'll share some of our favourite examples of aligned assignments and activities.

We'll engage youin a discussion of other examples that might fit within the principles, gather ideas and share back with everyone. Come prepared to share your best examples of online learning outside the walled garden - learning out in the open!

  15. 15. Collective Annotation of Documents and the Web Teacher annotations Pre-populate a text with questions for students to reply to in annotations or notes elucidating important points as they read. Annotation as formative feedback Provide feedback in context on students online creations such as websites, portfolios, or multimedia. Annotation as question and discussion Have students collectively highlight, tag, and annotate words or passages that are confusing to them in their readings. Annotation as annotated bibliography Have students research a topic or theme and tag and annotate relevant texts across the internet. https://web.hypothes.is/blog/back-to-school-with-annotation-10-ways-to-annotate-with-students/
  16. 16. Optimal Learning: Employing Principles and Practices Focus on personalised learning projects Engage students in building new knowledge collaboratively to address an authentic problem, scenario, or situation Encourage students to share their creations and expose their learning Build knowledge and skills through social learning experience leveraging digital technologies http://bit.ly/VIUDigitalPedagogy
  17. 17. Open Case Studies http://bit.ly/OpenCaseStudies Peer review and collaborative writing “raises the bar for them. If they’re writing just for me, and I don’t take this personally, they don’t put in sometimes quite as much effort as if their peers are going to read what they wrote. So it raises for some of them their level of engagement and motivation. I created a non-disposable visual portfolio for students to document and follow their progress as well as observe and contribute feedback to their peers. The goal was also to complete the course with a set of assignments that showcases their learning and outcomes in an accessible and visually appealing manner. Surprisingly user engagement was quite active with parents, friends, and people from other countries commenting on posts and starting interesting discussions. I think the students found that really rewarding that it went beyond the needs of meeting a course requirement.

  19. 19. Your Turn... What are Your Examples of Best Practices Employing the Learning Principles? In small groups discuss examples from your institution/experience about how to best design outside of the ‘walled garden’. We’ll have you share some of your ideas with the group after you’ve discussed. Keep track of your good ideas!
