This Massive Open Online Course - MOOC - which offers a practical and theoretical approach, is designed to help you experience a booming 21st century learning process as well as help you create your own sMOOC (social MOOC) in a step by step way.
At ECO Project, we will provide you with a space in one of our ECO's platforms to host - for free - the SMOOC you create.
This sMOOC “Step by Step”is conducted in six languages: Spanish, English, French, Italian, Portuguese and German. It has been developed by a multidisciplinary team from a dozen professional institutions and has been built with their own MOOC experience and expertise in the ECO project and in accordance with its specific pedagogical model based on social constructivism.
At the end of this MOOC, participants will be able :
- To identify the main trends in virtual training.
- To recognize the potential that sMOOCs provide as resources for learning at different levels and in different areas and contexts.
- To develop the skills for creating a sMOOC, on a step by step basis: Why and how to do it? How to manage it? How to use technology? How to make it accessible? How to disseminate? And how to evaluate students and use the data?
- To develop the skills to disseminate a sMOOC.
- To use technology to implement a sMOOC, individually and collaboratively.
A free online course for primary and secondary school teachers who are tackling the Computing curriculum in England. This free online course aims to help teachers in primary and secondary schools, especially those who previously taught other subjects including ICT. It was originally created by UEA with sponsorship from Computing at School (CAS) and BT. CAS have asked the National STEM Learning Centre to host a fourth run of this successful course.
This course will help you consider how to develop appropriate learning goals for individual and groups of students. You will learn how to plan learning activities to engage your students in ways that will achieve these goals.
Our world is rich with data sources, and technology makes data more accessible than ever before! To help ensure students are future ready to use data for making informed decisions, many countries around the world have increased the emphasis on statistics and data analysis in school curriculum–from elementary/primary grades through college. This course allows you to learn, along with colleagues from other schools, an investigation cycle to teach statistics and to help students explore data to make evidence-based claims.
For three decades and longer we have heard educators and technologists making a case for the transformative power of technology in learning. However, despite the rhetoric, in many ways and at most institutional sites, education is still relatively untouched by technology. Even when technologies are introduced, the changes sometimes seem insignificant and the results seem disappointing. If the print textbook is replaced by an e-book, do the social relations of knowledge and learning necessarily change at all or for the better? If the pen-and-paper test is mechanized, does this change the nature of our assessment systems? Technology, in other words, need not necessarily bring significant change. Technology might not even represent a step forward in education.
This MOOC takes a teachers’ perspective. It canvasses the 21st century skills students need. It explores how teachers might apply developmental teaching and assessment principles to develop these skills in a classroom.
Foundations of Teaching for Learning is a program of study primarily for people who are currently teaching but have had no formal teacher education. This course is an introductory one that considers the three domains of being a teacher: Professional Knowledge and Understanding; Professional Practice; and Professional Values, Relationships and Engagement.
Success with your students starts on Day 1. Learn from NTC's 25 years developing key skills and strategies to create positive, productive classroom environments where students thrive. Build relationships with Secondary Grade (6-12) students, establish and maintain behavioral expectations, implement classroom procedures and routines, and use instructional time effectively.
Open Educational Resources are the result of a different approach to education: the focus in on sharing, improving and reusing educational materials created by people (not only super-experts) who are willing to let knowledge spread and be used by anyone.
Learn how to implement evidence-based teaching strategies in your university classroom as well as effective methods for assessing teaching and learning. This course is designed to provide future STEM faculty, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows with an introduction to effective teaching strategies and the research that supports them.
