Are Virtual Classrooms the Future?
https://signalblog.stanford.edu/are-virtual-classrooms-the-future
https://sdlf.stanford.edu

At the second lecture of the Stanford Digital Learning Forum Seminar Series, Professor Jeremy Bailenson proposed that virtual reality can fundamentally transform learning and its outcomes.

He demonstrated how manipulating technologies such as a virtual reality headset can improve student attention, reduce stereotype threat, and give students access to places like the coral reef without ever making them leave their homes or classrooms.

Bailenson is Associate Professor of Communication, Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment, and Founder of the Virtual Human Interaction Lab.

Internet Trends 2015

KPCB’s Mary Meeker presents the 2015 Internet Trends report, 20 years after the inaugural “The Internet Report” was first published in 1995. Since then, the number of Internet users has risen from 35 million in 1995 to more than 2.8 billion today. The 2015 report looks at key Internet trends globally while still healthy Internet user and smartphone subscription growth continue to slow, Internet engagement continues to rise led by consumers spending more time on their mobile devices, where they can be connected 24/7. Mobile advertising still has headroom to expand and new innovations around ad formats and buy buttons should prove compelling for consumers and businesses.

A majority of parents (56%) say video games are a positive part of their child’s life: 88% think that game play is fun for the whole family and 75% believe playing games offers a good opportunity to connect with their child.

Video games are a strong engine for economic growth. In 2013, the industry sold 160 million games and generated more than $21 billion in revenue, $7.2 billion of which came from purchases of digital full games and add-on content, mobile apps, subscriptions and social network gaming. Computer and video game companies directly and indirectly employ more than 140,000 people in 36 states.___

Teaching Practices Inventory
http://www.cwsei.ubc.ca/resources/TeachingPracticesInventory.htm

Here’s a great resource: the Teaching Practices Inventory. It’s an inventory that lists and scores the extent to which research-based teaching practices are being used. It’s been developed for use in math and science courses, but researchers Carl Wieman and Sarah Gilbert suggest it can be used in engineering and social sciences courses, although they have not tested it there.

The inventory takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete (53% of the research cohort took it in 10 minutes or less) and is designed for use by individual faculty. It is a self-report inventory, with the power to promote a comprehensive review of and reflection on teaching practices. Inventory items are organized into eight categories:

Designing Technology and Pedagogy to Promote 21st Century Literacies in the Humanities
https://vimeo.com/112329700

A talk by Brian Johnsrud (Stanford) and Emily Schneider (Stanford) at the Digital Humanities Focal Group

"We've been told time and again: the information landscape is shifting, creating new ways of interacting with multimedia, sprawling archives, and digital, participatory cultures. These changes are (slowly) being echoed in the humanities classroom, as reading digitally, communicating online, and analyzing interactive, multimedia artifacts are being integrated into existing practices traditionally valued in the humanities.

A talk by Brian Johnsrud (Stanford) and Emily Schneider (Stanford) at the Digital Humanities Focal Group

"We've been told time and again: the information landscape is shifting, creating new ways of interacting with multimedia, sprawling archives, and digital, participatory cultures. These changes are (slowly) being echoed in the humanities classroom, as reading digitally, communicating online, and analyzing interactive, multimedia artifacts are being integrated into existing practices traditionally valued in the humanities.

In this talk, Brian Johnsrud and Emily Schneider will share their research on how traditional humanistic practices can be enlivened and extended with new digital tools and objects of analysis. The key questions inherent to this research include: What kinds of "21 st century literacies" are required for productive engagement with new media and learning practices,both in and outside of classrooms? And how might courses in the humanities support students in developing these literacies?

Lacuna Stories, a digital reading and writing platform currently being developed in the Poetic Media Lab, takes on this challenge by merging academic texts and media with the interactive affordances of the Web. This talk will give an overview of"21st century literacies," discuss their connection to the overall learning goals of the humanities, and showcase several "old"and "new" literacies that Lacuna Stories is designed to support."___

The Art of Tinkering: Loose Parts, Danger and Self-Directed Learning
Karen Wilkinson and Mike Petrich, Exploratorium
April 18, 2014

http://www.exploratorium.edu

At the Exploratorium we see tinkering as a serious endeavor; at its most basic -- a process that marries play and inquiry. When you're tinkering, you're trying something that you don't quite know how to do -- guided by whim, imagination and curiosity. You're not following step-by-step directions and the outcome isn't predetermined. You're attempting to figure out how things work and often reworking them.

We see tinkering as a practice that evolves over time, resulting in a disposition that allows you to fully engage with the world around you -- an ability that we think will be essential for the next generation. In the Tinkering Studio we attempt... more »

You're not following step-by-step directions and the outcome isn't predetermined. You're attempting to figure out how things work and often reworking them.

We see tinkering as a practice that evolves over time, resulting in a disposition that allows you to fully engage with the world around you -- an ability that we think will be essential for the next generation. In the Tinkering Studio we attempt to design specifically for tinkerability, offering visitors to the museum an opportunity to author their own ideas as they engage with art, science and technology. We'll share some of the insights we've had working this way in the physical world that we think might relate to the digital one as well. We'll also highlight some of our design principles and discuss dimensions of learning we see in an environment like this.

This seminar series features dynamic professionals sharing their industry experience and cutting edge research within the human-computer interaction (HCI) field. Each week, a unique collection of technologists, artists, designers, and activists will discuss a wide range of current and evolving topics pertaining to HCI. ___

Sensemaking Wayfinding Information Model (SWIM)
George Siemens

How learners make sense of complex information in individual and social processes.

How we engage in information and social experiences and how we try to make sense of that through a range of personal learning habits and techniques.

Individual
Take initiative - internal locus of control 
Key activity - individual engages in course, creates and shares artifacts 
brings some level of social capital and social involvement 

1. Course Structure (Navigation)
     - Learning how to navigate spaces
          know where different pieces and places are (e.g., blog, twitter, FB, new tools, LMS, MOOC platform)

     -Wayfinding Activitiy
          Where are the pieces, where do I need to be?

     - Learning how to navigate spaces
          know where different pieces and places are (e.g., blog, twitter, FB, new tools, LMS, MOOC platform)

     -Wayfinding Activitiy
          Where are the pieces, where do I need to be?

     -Distributed Courses
          Jot down different elements and how connected 
          Helps in conceptually understanding the landscape 
          Articulate key landmark elements - then can see self in relation to other activities 

2. Course Content (Scope of Knowledge Domain)
     - Expecting greater participatory activity on the part of learner 
     - not relying only on faculty member to provide content 

Identity Formation

Information
Interacting around info - from peers, from what we’re providing in the form of artifacts, through information external instructor or guest presenter share, content from instructors

Technology as S/W Agent
Sensemaking/Wayfinding role of tech (e.g, gdocs - build bibliography, glossary, Evernote - collect key ideas, personal notes)
Role of tech in this experience- enables us to make our way effectively and to build our identity and to interact with info meaningfully 

Contextualizing
Recognize how info and identity formation is contextually connected is critical 

Sense Giving
Make sense of a topic area. Understand how ideas connect and relate. Start to share with others. Post in discussion forum or blog. Opportunity to sense give based on activities involved in…happens in social space 
      
Negotiation

Debated..is this a critical element or not? 

Not all info socially navigated, not all knowledge socially constructed 
Happening more in a digital participatory setting 
Technologies we use for making sense of complex info has a greater and greater social component 

Activities Learners Can Engage In

Self-organization & sub-networks
     - Be involved in a space where you’re more comfortable 
     - Create that space and invite others to join      

Sensegiving through artifact creation & sharing
    - Involved in creating and sharing artifacts 
    - Help others better understand how you see a topic or an area 
    - Often novices who have just learned an idea are better able to communicate it to peers than experts 

Sensemaking/giving through language games
     - Process of negotiation - normalize or harmonize understanding of particular terms 
     - Try to make sense of languange - share perspective in a more meaningful way 

Knowledge domain expansion
Learning in a complex info setting is as much about creating and generating new knowledge as it is about duplicating what’s already there. Important to be involved in process of continually pushing boundary of how we understand the topic area. 

Wayfinding cues, symbols
    - How we understand where we are in relation to where we want to be in a course
    - Can be cues that we learn to understand ourselves - jot down parts of course and as it progresses how found parts are connected 

Social Organization through creating sharing
Getting involved - Opportunity to shape the thinking of others through the artifacts that we share and have our thinking shaped as we engage directly with others through this language process___

How DALMOOC Works

A basic overview of how the Data, Analytics, and Learning MOOC works, by George Siemens

Short introduction to the structure of the course and discussion of expectations regarding participation and involvement. Heavy emphasis on connections between learners.

Four Key Points to Help Get Oriented

Wayfinding & Sensemaking

…there are multiple places where learning is happening and multiple places where conversations are happening. It takes a bit of time to get used to that and a bit of time to get comfortable with those multiple-spaced interactions.

Here's some help for making sense of what's happening and finding your way through the course:

1. Visual Syllabus 
...essential landing page that'll let you know what's happening and where the different parts of the course exist. goo.gl/NxFGkF

- What are the tags?
- What are the different groups in Facebook?
- Where to find content that's being shared outside of the core edX platform?

2. Daily Email
…summary of what happens in social media. We're not pulling the content out of edX, but the discussions are happening on Twitter, and they're happening on different blogs, those will be sent in a daily e-mail, so you'll get a sense of how the distributive conversation in the course is unfolding.

3. Weekly Sessions
Live weekly hang out sessions will be recorded ….where you have an opportunity to ask questions of instructors, or to provide any comments or opinions or concerned that you might have related to the course. http://goo.gl/gl6SJk

4. edX Forum
Opportunity to engage in edX forum. http://goo.gl/jCseYI


Learning Opportunities

Teaching team focuses on introducing some broad ideas (along with providing learning materials, resources and tools) and then encourages peer learning activities and learners engaging with each other, as well as providing back to the learning space.

…learners are also connected to a range of other opportunities,and these are peripheral learners, individuals that are partially involved in the course, they might be following the course peripherally through the use of Twitter or social media, following a hash tag, contributing resources, they might engage in social bookmarking services just for sharing resources ,tools…

Knowledge as a network property, combinatorial creativity

...you're going to be asked to create an artifact, and that artifact could be a blog post, it could be a visualization of data, it could be a complex problem that we're asking you to understand through a variety of different data or analytics methods, and then, essentially, to share that back to other course members, who then, in turn, take that, build on it and keep innovating. And it's this general idea of combinatorial creativity, where we're focused on creating new things.

Importance of Owning Your Own Learning Space

...rather than contributing to a course where you put a comment in a discussion forum and that comment is gone, you lose that contribution, or if you create artifacts that get uploaded, there isn't an opportunity for the community or for other learners in the course to benefit  from your contribution, we want to emphasize the value of owning your learning space. What it means instead is that important things that you create, and it could be an image, it could be a concept map, it could be a script that you've written, but something that you want others to be aware of, rather than just sharing it back to the instructor in the course, who want you to share it with each other so that in the spirit of combinatorial creativity, others can take those ideas and improve them.

A key activity, for you as a learner in this course, is to create things and share them, and then to take what others have done, revise them, remix them, and them share them back into this space. And so it's really this iterative process that essentially is what happens in science or any area of scientific inquiry.

Focus on Distributive Conversations

We're trying to emphasize that regardless of where you participate, if it's on a blog, if it's in a learning management system, or edX if you're involved in the discussion forums, bookmarking sites, Twitter, and so on, we essentially want to focus on conversations that happen wherever they do, being able to aggregate those conversations, which is something that we'll attempt to do in the form of a daily e-mail that will give you an overview of what's happened in the course.___
