Ignatia Webs

Sharing abstract of our paper here: Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have attracted a great deal of attention by higher education and private enterprises. MOOCs have evolved considerably since their emergence in 2008, all the while given rise to academic discussions on MOOC impact, design and reach. In an effort to understand MOOCs more comprehensively, this study analyzes theses and dissertations (N = 51) related to MOOCs and published between 2008 and 2015, identifying research trends from these academic documents. education eLearning journal mooc research

Reflections on the 2008 RCAC Symposium

The Mobile Learner

I was fortunate enough to attend another education technology conference in 2008 and this conference was the Western RCAC symposium held in London, Ontario on December 11th.  Educators really need to hear that message too because, ultimately, this is the world students live in and will live in.  I think that educators sometimes isolate themselves from the world and forget the relevancy that learning has for real life focusing too much on learning and disseminate information for it’s own sake.  The two keynotes of the day were David Warlick and Amber MacArthur.

A New Series: Cell Phones in Education

The Mobile Learner

When I began writing this blog a little over one year ago, the major focus of my thoughts were around using the iPod to help kids learn.  At that time, I began a series of blog posts titled “iPod in Education&#.  In these posts, I try to offer practical ideas in integrating this popular mobile technology into classroom instruction to help kids learn and to help motivate students to want to learn.  I have completed 10 posts in this series to date and these continue to be my most popular posts.

However, the conversation was fruitful and the interaction, for the most part, was vibrant. digital tools.

Mobile Surveys to get research or educational data from your users/learners

Ignatia Webs

The fact that it is such sophisticated software makes it very useful in research areas because the survey developer has a certain amount of autonomy that enables her or him to design the survey up to the real research or educational needs. How can you get relevant survey data from your learners' mobile to your server so you can immediately build on new knowledge? This is no small thing!

Open Discussion- Is There an Educational Laffer Curve?

mLearning World

I've been doing some research with a friend on educational spending and performance in the key areas of math, science, technology, etc. We have stumbled upon an interesting anomaly, a correlation with the less a school spends on education and higher performance in these key areas. Of course, there is a limitation to this where a lack of funding can obviously not support education, but this does seem to counter the trend of constantly putting more money into the system. This requires teachers to be creative and innovative in educational approach. learing+2.0
