Educational technology has progressed substantially from the days when any new technology that potentially might be used in education immediately attracted supporters advocating its use. Today, the critical factor in the uptake of technology is the manner in which it interacts with human cognitive, motivational, social and emotional systems. Educational Technologies: Challenges, Applications and Learning Outcomes, is edited by Lijia Lin and Bob Atkinson, both expert in the area of educational psychology. It collects the work of global leaders concerned with the interaction between human attributes and educational technology. The result is a book wide in its scope and deep in its analyses. I enthusiastically recommend it to anyone with an interest in this important, rapidly expanding field. - John Sweller, Emeritus Professor of Educational Psychology, School of Education, University of New South Wales, Australia ...

Educational technology in way could be traced back to the emergence of very early tools, e.g., paintings on cave walls. But usually its history is made to start with educational film (1900s) or Sidney Presseys mechanical teaching machines in the 1920. First large scale usage of new technologies can be traced to US WWII training of soldiers through training films and other mediated materials. Today, presentation-based technology, based on the idea that people can learn contents trough aural and visual reception, exists in many forms, e.g., streaming audio and video, PowerPoint presentations + voice-over. Another interesting invention of the 1940s was hypertext, i.e., V. Bushs memex. The 1950s led to two major still popular designs. Skinners work led to "programmed instruction" focusing on the formulation of behavioral objectives, breaking instructional content into small units and rewarding correct responses early and often. Advocating a mastery approach to learning based on his taxonomy of ...

Compared to the traditional passive lecture, active learning methods can increase student participation and motivation, promote critical thinking skills and even increase knowledge retention. Think-pair-share, flipped classroom, gamification, and team based learning are all examples of methods to promote active learning. Unfortunately, consistently incorporating these into the clerkship didactics can be difficult, especially with a rotating set of faculty volunteer lecturers and variable student engagement. One way to promote active learning in a structured didactic format is through the use of audience response systems.. Audience Response Systems For Teaching And Talks - Why? And How? post, from the ICE blog, provides a nice overview of audience response systems and highlights several audience response technologies. By forcing students to commit to an answer, these systems provide learners with real-time feedback about their knowledge gaps in a low-stakes environment. This can be especially ...

By Leila Meyer, THE Journal. Two small Illinois school districts have joined a distance education consortium for dual credit college-level courses, bringing the total number of member districts to four, and a fifth district may soon join them. Wethersfield and Galva school districts started the distance learning lab three years ago in collaboration with Black Hawk College to expand the number of dual credit courses available to their students. Dual credit courses are college-level courses open to high school students, allowing those students to earn both high school credit and college credit for completing the course. The courses may be taught by either a qualified high school teacher or college instructor at a high school or college. Annawan Unit District and AlWood Community District have now joined the consortium, according to a story in the Star Courier, and Cambridge School District may also join at a later ...

Though it has been rightly said that what is wrong with education cannot be fixed with technology; there is no doubt that modern life is dominated by technology. There is universal recognition of the need to use Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in education as we enter the era of globalization where the free flow of information via satellite and the internet hold sway in global information dissemination of knowledge. Already, Nigeria is on he wrong side of the international digital divide, as it has not made significant effort to integrate ICT into secondary school curriculum. A great deal of instructional and administrative work in secondary school in Nigeria is still carried out manually. This paper, therefore, examines the major obstacles militating against the use of ICT in secondary education in Nigeria.

Though these acknowledgments are far better than a blind faith in technology, they still belie hidden, unjustified expectations of technology. The first interpretation suggests that technology cures some maladies in education. But, this is exactly what doesnt happen - the prevailing evidence shows that technology does not cure unhealthy educational systems; at best, it only augments healthy ones. The second belief is more dangerous because it is factually correct but misleading for policy. It implies that technology can be a good solution as long as other investments are also made; what it leaves out is that if alternate investments of the same magnitude were made to support education directly (and not indirectly to support technology), the educational results could be far greater. The issues here are cost-effectiveness and opportunity cost. Of course, if the net impact of a technology solution is zero or negative, its pointless to implement it however low the cost. But because many educators ...
by Lyle Sylvander, edLab. Professors and researchers at the University of Edinburghs e-learning department see Coursera as a unique opportunity to experiment with the MOOC format while utilizing their own theories and insights into e-learning. According to the article, the current trend in MOOCs is to replicate the curricula of traditional campus-based courses. But as the article states, "some of the most interesting and innovative practices in online education have emerged by challenging these very ideas - loosening institutional control of learning outcomes and assessment criteria, shifting from a focus on content delivery to a foregrounding of process, community and learning networks, and working with more exploratory assessment methods - digital and multimodal assignments, peer assessment and group assignments, for example.". http://edlab.tc.columbia.edu/index.php?q=node/8846.

An educational system that cant gradually evolve a great curriculum over decades, because it cant distinguish better from worse, doesnt have what it takes to evolve great educational technologies. Ideally, the subjects taught, the curricular sequences, the teachers skills and techniques, and the technologies should all coevolve in a system that demonstrably produces a more powerful graduating class every year. (Olympic and pro sports teams manage it, more or less.) Unfortunately, since the other factors arent improving, just throwing technology products into the evolutionary cul-de-sac that is our education system is not likely to do much good but not because educational technology lacks potential ...

In this study, 176 toddlers in two age groups (24 months and 30 months) were charged with learning the name of a novel object and putting it in a bin. They were studied under these four conditions: Responsive live: the person making the request was present and engaged with the child; Unresponsive video: the speaker on the screen looked at the camera and smiled at scripted times; Unresponsive live: although present, the speaker behaved as she did on the unresponsive video; and Responsive video: a speaker on closed-circuit video engaged with the child, just as they might on video chat. The researchers found that the toddlers in both age groups reliably learned the toys name in the responsive live condition, and older toddlers learned in the unresponsive live condition. But neither group learned in either of the video conditions. The researchers believe thats because to toddlers, a flat image of a person on a screen isnt "real," so their brains tell them what they are seeing isnt personally ...
Feedback occurs when a change in one variable -- say, the message the thermostat sends to the furnace to pump out heat -- leads to a change -- the increase in room temperature -- that eventually counteracts the original message. When multiple feedbacks interact or when there is a time delay in the feedback, there are often unanticipated consequences. The best software for exploring this is STELLA, which implements the System Dynamics framework developed at MIT by Jay Forrester and made famous by the 1972 global futures modeling study, The Limits to Growth (Meadows et al. 1972). Thinking about feedback and learning how to model it using the software does not come easily for many of us (High Performance Systems 1997; Richmond 1993), but STELLA learning laboratories, such as "Food chain," provide an entry-point ...

Much research in educational technology has focused mainly on how the technology supports student learning. Research on what teachers need to know in order to appropriately incorporate technology into their teaching has been limited because of the lack of theoretical grounding for understanding teachers cognitive process of technology integration into teaching and learning. With the technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPCK) framework, components that influence teachers decisions about using technology to support student learning can be explicitly examined. The purpose of this study is to investigate how to prepare teachers to take into account the pedagogical uses of technology as well as the knowledge of students to inform the designing of tasks for science learning. Both the learning-by-design (LBD) and the experiencing-model-based-inquiry (EMBI) approaches support the cognitive processing necessary for planning to use technology to teach conceptual content in science.
Despite their increased diffusion through rich and poor communities around the world, many people still have serious reservations about large scale investments in information and communication technologies (ICTs) within education systems.

What it is: Ive written about StackUp before here but, over the last three years, the company has grown up enough that it warrants another post! StackUp has a pretty great back story. Nick Garvin, the founder of StackUp, was fresh out of school and wanted to apply for a job at Tesla Motors. The problem? His traditional resume failed to document the thousands of hours that he spent online in self-taught learning about the automotive industry. This frustration led to the creation of StackUp, a way for Nick (and others like him) to better document self-directed learning. As an educator, StackUp immediately appealed to me for the way that it could capture my own learning. Though I dont hold a degree in educational technology, my years of independent study should be captured! My blog does a decent job of helping me share my learning with others, but it is still just a small representation of all that I have learned over the years. Similarly, my graphic artist husband has realized that he has a love ...
Once every year, I teach an actual course, not a workshop or professional development, but a class with 20 - 40 students. One where I need to write a syllabus, have lectures, papers to grade, homework and exams.. Now, Im not comparing teaching masters or doctoral students 3- 6 hours a week to my friends who teach middle school six hours a day. In fact, when I go for a day or two, as a guest speaker for six classes a day, and I need to stand on my feet and keep 40 teenagers attention for all of that time, I think yet again that teachers dont get paid nearly enough.. There are several reasons that it is important to me to teach a course every year, and one is that I think it is super-important as someone who makes educational technology that I be in an actual classroom with students. Its easy to forget how unbelievably BUSY teachers are if you are not in that situation day after day.. Its also easy to overestimate the amount of time teachers have to investigate new technology. For example, ...

By Roy Hanes and Beth A. Robertson. Technological advances have historically been integral to creating inclusive spaces of learning, whether in schools, universities or public libraries, especially as the discourse has shifted from one of charity to a human right. Yet how does one tell that story in an online format that is similarly inclusive and accessible? On Thursday, March 3, 2016, Carleton Universitys Disability Research Group hosted a symposium to launch and gain feedback on a virtual exhibit intended for just that purpose entitled Envisioning Technologies: Historical Insights into Educational Technologies for Persons who are Blind or Partially Sighted in Canada Since 1892.

At Harvard Medical School, we introduced Mycourses.med.harvard.edu as the educational portal in 2001. Each year through Mycourses, we deliver 60,000 streaming videos, thousands of documents, and hundreds of simulations. Per my recent post about Educational Technology priorities, there is a desire to enhance usability and add many new features. The challenge is that we need to maintain existing features while innovating. This is like changing the wings on a 747 while its flying. A perfect example is our Surveybuilder and Testbuilder. These web-based applications in Mycourses evolved over years based on hundreds of user feature requests. At this point, adding new features will likely break old features. Our best approach is to rewrite them from scratch, based on a streamlined set of user requirements. Thus, well evolve the existing Mycourses into a new portal framework, then rewrite the applications over time. This will be evolution rather than revolution. Some people will comment that our pace ...

I dont tell this story all that often but its probably the biggest story in my life (so far).. Back in the fall of 2007 I was a student in Montreal, living with the woman I thought I would marry. I was a teacher and artistic director for a great dance studio, a barista at a local cafe. I was applying to a graduate program in Educational Technology. I did yoga and pilates regularly, and trained in capoeira when I wasnt teaching or social dancing at night. All things seemed to be on their merry conventional way in my life.. Cups of tea were plentiful and there were no jarring questions to shake my existence.. Fast forward to a Sunday night on a return trip from Albany, NY with my girlfriend. We arrived at the border station at 10pm. The guard checked our passports and said we needed to go inside. Id been through the border so many times it didnt bother me. Inside we waited. They called my name. Took my documentation. Asked a few standard questions, told me to sit down.. They called me back up ...

The 2008 National Science Foundation workshop report on "Enabling Science Discoveries through Visual Exploration" also noted "there is a strong desire for conversational interfaces that facilitate a more natural means of interacting with science." Even a decade ago this would have seemed far-fetched, but today there is renewed interest in the use of natural language as an interface to computing, with a variety of successful models that are able to understand the meaning of verbal descriptions in search engine, recommender system, educational technology and health applications. This inspired me to adopt a natural language interface in the automated visualization framework which would allow an end-user to pose verbal inquiries, and then let the system assume the burden of determining the appropriate graph, and presenting the results. It is hoped that such a capability can potentially reduce the learning curve necessary for effective use of visualization tools, and thereby expand the population of ...

Alexandra Kurland has been training horses and teaching since the mid-1980s. In the early 1990s, after reading Karen Pryors Dont Shoot the Dog, Alexandra headed out to the barn with a clicker and a pocket full of treats to see what her horse thought about clicker training. What Alexandra quickly discovered was that the clicker was an effective communication tool, a tool that horses not only understood, but responded to with great enthusiasm. Alexandra documented her experiences, and over time developed a systematic, very detailed program for clicker training horses. Her books, including Clicker Training for Your Horse, along with her video lesson series, The Click That Teaches, are designed to give horse owners an overall roadmap. Now, largely thanks to Alexandra, horse owners are putting away their whips and spurs and discovering what Alexandra had the foresight to discover decades ago-clicker training produces eager, happy horses and delighted handlers. We are thrilled that Alexandra Kurland ...
Scientists have developed an easy-to-use computer program that can quickly analyse bacterial DNA from a patients infection and predict which antibiotics will work, and which will fail due to drug resistance. The software is currently being trialled in three UK hospitals to see whether it could help speed up diagnosis of drug-resistant infections and enable doctors to better target the prescription of antibiotics.

When clicker training, avoid adding a cue until the dog is performing the behavior reliably. You want a nice steady rhythm of behavior, click, treat; behavior, click, treat. As soon as your dog eats the treat, he offers another sit. Check below for more training information or related services.
I examine exactly why its impossible to get proper nutrition from the grocery store dog foods, and why this is important especially for clicker dogs.
If theres one thing weve learned about the digital age, its that theres simply no excuse for being out of touch.. "When employees are provided with ways to make suggestions that could improve the productivity or the general working environment of the company, it can be said that the environment is inclusive, as it allows for free communication between everyone employed by the business."(2). Businesses should offer frequent (perhaps even continual) opportunities for feedback-both anonymous and in forums. In meetings, training sessions, and presentations, audience response systems are an excellent way to gauge the feelings, opinions, and wishes of your team-helping managers and administrators make decisions that reflect the overall attitudes of employees and improve the corporate culture.. According to the SmartMeetings article (3), "Generation Tech: Leverage leading-edge technology to engage millennials," written by SmartSource Rentals Vice President of Sales, Jeffrey Byrne:.
