A Fireworks Display Of Library Instruction, Terri M. Rickel
Kansas Library Association College and University Libraries Section Proceedings
Instructing students on how to use the library and the databases in one setting, especially when there is only 50 minutes, can be extremely overwhelming for the students and instructor. This session covered tips that can be used in the interview process with the professor, creating a flipped classroom or blended instruction opportunities to enhance the learning process ( including pre or post-session), as well as demonstrating guides for assisting students in database searching techniques. Finally, the session ended with ways to get buy-in from professors about tutorials and guides used outside the lessons.
Mixed Reality In Higher Education: Pedagogy Before Technology, 2016 Bond University
Mixed Reality In Higher Education: Pedagogy Before Technology, James Birt, Michael A. Cowling
• Difficult to teach complex processes -without real world models (Tasker & Dalton, 2008)
• Traditional teaching methods often use abstract visualizations –but don’t capture complexity (Williamson et al., 2012)
• Focus on technology enhanced T&L (Johnson et al., 2016; Keppellet al., 2011)
• Visualizations are positive learning support tools (Mayer, 2014; Höffler, 2010)
• Kinaesthetic tools better form mental models(Pass & Sweller, 2014)
Most prior work in (multimedia…blended…dual modality) learning has been formed around words & pictures with less attention to complex learning environments such as interactive visualisations, games & simulations (Ayres, 2015).
Teachers’ Perceptions About Math Snacks Spanish Materials, 2016 New Mexico State University
Teachers’ Perceptions About Math Snacks Spanish Materials, Sara Morales, Lida J. Uribe-Flórez, Karen Trujillo, Karin Wiburg
Lida J. Uribe-Flórez
Mathematics has been a gatekeeper especially for diverse students (Martin, Gholson & Leonard, 2010). The implications of an increasingly diverse school population calls for the development of culturally and linguistically responsive materials, including support materials for mathematics in Spanish. Teachers of mathematics in the United States have limited resources available to them in Spanish to support bridging mathematics content and practices for English Learners (Moschkovich, 2013). The CCSS-M requires deep conceptual understanding in order for students to be successful in their formal K-12 education. Students, whose home language is other than English, need support and opportunities to success in mathematics classrooms ...

Web 2.0 Tools And Communities Of Practice: Bridging Gaps In Novice Teacher Training, Stacey A. Donaldson
The Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership Publications
Novice teachers do not have sufficient opportunities to troubleshoot real-world teaching situations before having their classrooms. Antiquated professional development (PD) models lack the collaboration element that provides authentic application of concepts. This qualitative case study was conducted to fill a gap in research on novice teachers’ voluntary participation in an online community of practice. The study explored how the situated learning in this virtual community addressed the cognitive and social needs of early career teachers as they made the theory to practice connections. The community of practice framework and the social learning theories supported socialization as essential in early ...

Becoming A Maker Educator, 2016 Boise State University
Becoming A Maker Educator, Jackie Gerstein
Educational Technology Faculty Publications and Presentations
The Maker Movement is a "global-do-it-yourself (DIY) movement of people who take charge of their lives, solve their own problems and share how they solved them" (Roscorla, 2013). This movement is gaining traction in the educational sphere, in both formal (public and private K-16 schools) and informal educational environments (after-school programs, community makerspaces, libraries, museums, etc.). As such, there has been a corresponding increase in the number of articles about the Maker Movement and Maker Education in professional journals, as well as increased attention to the topic with-in school-related professional development activities and education conferences.
The Effects Of Descriptions And Images Of Antecedent Stimuli And Outcomes To Correct Responses In Task Analysis Instruction, 2016 The Graduate Center, City University of New York
The Effects Of Descriptions And Images Of Antecedent Stimuli And Outcomes To Correct Responses In Task Analysis Instruction, Bryan C. Tyner
All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
Task analysis (TA) instruction is commonly used for teaching behavior chains; however, little research informs best practices for TA instruction. Data regarding the effects of instructional variables on responding may enhance TA efficacy and learner performance. Linking TA instruction to the three-term contingency may facilitate the development of control by stimuli that are naturally present while completing complex tasks; therefore, this study employed a two-by-two factorial design to analyze the relative effects of supplementing TA instruction with descriptions and images of: (factor A) antecedent stimuli relevant to each instructed discrete response and (factor B) the outcomes of accurately completing instructed ...
Is There Evidence To Warrant Using Subject Introduction Videos?, 2016 Bond university
Is There Evidence To Warrant Using Subject Introduction Videos?, Shelley Kinash
Most schools and universities now have online counterparts to face-to-face units/subjects through Learning Management Systems (LMS) such as Blackboard or Moodle. These sites usually provide information about the unit and its assessment, serve as a gateway to content and interaction tools, and are a portal to submit assessment and receive educator feedback and grades. As the sites become increasingly complex and multi-layered, an emerging practice is to provide a brief (for example, less than five minutes) video, often created by the educator. Some of the functions of the subject introduction video are to: self-introduce and create a teaching ...
