The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Also in German below:

 

Web2.0ERC is an European Union education project to help educators who find ICT and Web2.0 confusing and difficult to access.

 

The project has built a simple web site and a set of the most popular tools (Wikis, Blogs, communications, Social Networking etc.) with clear guides on:

  • How to use the tools
  • How they can be used in education

 

The project is providing a simple and secure environment to use ICT for educators in their work and in their classes. The project is also looking at other Web 2.0 tools that can be used to create content, share the content and communicate.

 

The Web2.0ERC platform has been piloted with educators at every level and is now open for exclusive use by educators. On the platform you will find guides, videos and examples of how the platform can be used autonomously. You can register on the platform at: http://platform.web20erc.eu/login/index.php

 

To ensure only genuine educators use the platform to make courses a verification process will take place:

1. Register on the platform (create account).

2. ‘Apply for teacher privileges’ from the Helpmenu (complete the brief form)

3. You will receive an email when approved

4. You will see the, ‘Create a course wizard’ in the Coursesmenu.

It is highly recommended that you read the Help for teachers in the Help menu as there will be no additional support.

 

In addition, a large number of resources on the use of Web2.0 tools in education have been gathered and are available on the website. These include video tutorials, academic papers, best practices, case studies and use case scenarios, and user contributed ideas (see http://www.web20erc.eu/deliverables )

Das europäische Web2.0ERC Projekt möchte PädagogInnen weiterhelfen, die sich mit neuen Informationstechnologien und Web 2.0 Werkzeugen schwer tun - damit sie einen guten Einstieg finden.

 

Das Projekt hat eine einfache Internetplattform aufgebaut, die die beliebtesten Web 2.0 Werkzeuge beinhaltet: Wikis, Blogs, Kommunikationswerkzeuge, Social Networking, etc.. Tutorials helfen am Anfang und liefern Ideen, wie man die Werkzeuge im Unterricht einbauen kann.

 

Das Internetmodul bietet einen geschützten Zugang und kann direkt für die Arbeit in der Schule benutzt werden. Gleichzeitig möchte das Projekt auf weitere Web 2.0 Werkzeuge verweisen, mit denen man Inhalt erzeugen und teilen kann, sich aber auch mit anderen KollegInnen verbinden kann.

 

The Web2.0ERC Internetplattform wurde von PädagogInnen aus unterschiedlichen Bildungsbereichen ausführlich getestet und kann jetzt exklusiv im Bildungsbereich benutzt werden. Tutorials, Videos und Beispiele können selbstständig benutzt werden. Einen zusätzlichen Support gibt es nicht. Hier geht es direkt zur Plattform: http://platform.web20erc.eu/login/index.php.

Methods: Tradition vs. Relevance

This morning I read a post from a higher education educator about the negative effects of Tech in lectures. The author was perplexed when he realized a great many students in his lecture hall were paying attention to Facebook, or attending to email during the course of a two-hour lecture. His school chose to ban tech devices from the lecture hall. Additionally, students were required to use nametags, so that the lecturer could address individual students with questions during the lecture. This…See More
