1 Identify effective resources available…… …….to support teaching and learning

2 Learning Outcome 1 All those involved in teaching and training need to develop resources in support of their role. In recent times the growth of the internet has increased the availability of both free and paid resources. Teachers and trainers support each other by developing and sharing their resources with colleagues. They first need to identify those resources already available in their own institutions.

3 Resources in own Institution Library Publications Printed materials, Charts and Maps Artefacts Models and equipment Case studies Electronic media, computers, intranet

4 External resources: Internet, CD/DVD/VLE Library The Media Examination and qualification awarding bodies Conferences, networking, in-service training Exhibitions

5 Effectiveness of different resources: Purpose Supportive Motivational Inspirational Transformational Enjoyable, Re-inforcement, Consolidation Fostering Independent Learning

6 Computer Based Resources: Availability Cost Access Expertise Effectiveness

7 Tell me Give me clear instructions in words I can understand

8 Show me Animated explanations of how it happens, simulations, demos

9 Let me Guide me in performing a procedure on my own

10 Quest for interactive resources: Multi-media content Java applets Google wave Learning Objects

11 Purposes of Muli-media Communication Enthuse;exhort;excite;arouse Entertain;amuse Educate;Transfer learning Enlighten;equanimity;Catharsis

12 Mapping interactivity to learning outcomes Often interactivity is used merely at the grabbing attention stage…. a good opening story, statement of a puzzle, several learner responses

13 Levels of interactivity in converged media Non-interactive Low interactivity Medium level interactivity Highly interactive

14 Non-interactive Static web-pages Self-running presentations Powerpoint,Flash,streaming media

15 Low interactivity Dynamic web-pages Elementary branching (Skinner model) Links to other web-sites Threaded discussions

16 Medium level interactive Fill-in-the-blanks, Drag and drop activities, Match pairs Java applets Web-quests E-mail

17 High level interactivity Clickographic profiles Instant messaging,polling Pop-up messages Simulation, Virtual Reality Highly adaptive web-pages presented to the user based on push technologies

18 New modes of interactivity in traditional lectures Polling through sms E-mailing in real time Integrating instant messaging in a face to face classroom

19 Interactivity in a webcast Production Call-inE-mail PollingChat

20 Java applets in education A new dimension of interactive e- content

21 What are Java applets? Applets are programs written in Java Applets require a www browser or another Java application to run A Java application is a stand-alone program that needs a Java interpreter,such as the java Virtual Machine to run

22 Advantages of Java as a programming language Speed Interoperability User interaction Portability and platform independence Distributed and network computing Development and Maintenance

23 Pedagogical dimensions Appropriateness Training Availability No silver bullet

24 Technological dimensions Limitations of Java syntax Compliancy Graphical User Interface Robustness Efficiency Security Help Process engineering

25 Examples in Chemistry Informational applets:The periodic Table Concept illustrating applets:Why things have colour Computational applets:Molecular Dynamics,Acid base titration Assessment applets:Chemistry Quiz

26 Examples in Physics Informational applets:Optical Table Concept illustrating applets:Young’s double slit interference experiment Computational applets:Series approximation using Fourier and Legendre expansions Assessment applets:Newton’s third law

27 Examples in Mathematics Informational applets:Addition and multiplication tables in different bases Concept illustrating applets:Fractal curves and dimensions Computational applets:Symbolic algebraicComputation Assessment applets:

28 Examples : Miscellaneous Informational applets Concept illustrating applets:Tower of Hanoi Computational applets Assessment applets

29 Google wave Google Wave is a web-based application that represents a rethinking of electronic communication. Users create online spaces called "waves," which include multiple discrete messages and components that constitute a running, conversational document. Users access waves through the web, resulting in a model of communication in which rather than sending separate copies of multiple messages to different people, the content resides in a single space. Wave offers a compelling platform for personal learning environments because it provides a single location for collecting information from diverse sources while accommodating a variety of formats, and it makes interactive coursework a possibility for nontechnical students.

30 Attributes of a good resource? Must be effective for learning purposes Serves the learning needs of the learner In an appropriate language Efficient in time Is practical Easily accessible Makes Learning enjoyable

31 Some more attributes: Motivates learners Reinforces learning Consolidation of learning Fosters independent learning Referential use for teachers, trainers & learners Supports different learning styles (visual, kinesthetic, auditory)

32 Using open learning resources The variety and range of resources Models of sharing resources Learning from open learning resources

33 The variety and range of resources MIT opencourseware initiative The Gutenberg project Google/Microsoft library project Wikipedias Learning Repositories Blogs Podcasts

34 Some useful links

35 Digital rights management TRIPS IPR framework Creative Commons

36 Learning from open learning resources Learning Objectives Learning Styles Learner Contracts Assessing achievements

37 Ways of Knowing? Authority Memory Faith Logically Empirically Moral belief Introspection Empathy Conscience Practice Acquaintance Instinctively
