Adding Some TEC-VARIETY Sented by Rebecca

Many ideas and events led to the development of the TEC-VARIETY framework and the 100+ activities for motivating and retaining online learners described in this book. Much of it has its roots in the mid-1980s, long before most educators had ever heard of online learning.

The Para-academic handbook

I have recently been struggling to find a word to describe the growing movement of resistance towards the ever more corporate mission of the university.

Better Learning in Games

This is a guide to inform next generation learning game designs. It is an introduction to the core approaches used by many learning game designers, including the Learning Games Network and The Education Arcade at MIT.

Adding Some TEC-VARIETY Sented by Steve Bark

Many ideas and events led to the development of the TEC-VARIETY framework and the 100+ activities for motivating and retaining online learners described in this book. Much of it has its roots in the mid-1980s, long before most educators had ever heard of online learning.

Educational Psychology
Educational Psychology Sented by Daniel

Chapters in the text can be assigned either from beginning to end, as with a conventional printed book, or they can be selected in some other sequence to meet the needs of particular students or classes. In general the first half of the book focuses on broader questions and principles taken from psychology per se, and the second half focuses on somewhat more practical issues of teaching.

A College Student’s Guide to Computers in Education

This book is for students currently enrolled in higher education and students thinking of going to college. It is designed to be read online, although if you want to take the environmentally unsound approach of printing out a copy, I guess I cannot stop you. Many of us find it hard to break old habits, or to replace old habits with new habits.

Teachers as Readers
Teachers as Readers Sented by Rebecca

Maxine Greene, whom we admire for her philosophical wisdom on education, wrote, “If it weren’t for Jo March in Little Women, I wouldn’t be where I am today” (Greene, 1995, p. 91). Imagine Greene saying that to a classroom of students. Imagine you had not read Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women (1869/1997). Would you want Greene to tell you about Jo March?

Real-Time Research: Improvisational Game Scholarship

As researchers trying to understand games, it's invigorating – and humbling – to see the breakneck pace with which game development occurs. Every few years, revolutions in hardware, design innovations, and the changing place of video games in culture transform the marketplace in fundamental ways.

E-learning Methodologies
E-learning Methodologies Sented by Luis

The purpose of this guide is to provide detailed guidance on designing and developing an e-learning course for trainers and instructional designers who are new to e-learning design. It also provides basic concepts and information on the processes and resources involved in e-learning development, which might be of interest to capacity-development managers.

Evaluation Metrics
Evaluation Metrics Sented by Emma

In an open access world, much importance has been given in using open source tools, open access resources and open solutions to engage authors and researchers in collaborative research, peer-to-peer sharing of scholarly information and collaborative evaluation of scholars’ works.

Game Changers: Education and Information Technologies

Today’s knowledge revolution isn’t about how much information is available. It’s about how fast knowledge can travel through vast, connected networks of people—and how it can grow exponentially.

Mind, Body, World
Mind, Body, World Sented by Rebecca

Understanding Cognitive Science (Dawson, 1998) was an attempt to present a particular thread, Marr’s (1982) tri-level hypothesis, as a unifying theme for cognitive science. At that time, the 1990s, the primary texts available for survey courses in cognitive science (Gleitman & Liberman, 1995; Green, 1996; Kosslyn & Osherson, 1995; Osherson, 1995; Posner, 1991; Smith & Osherson, 1995; Stillings, 1995) were surveys of research in the many different content areas of cognitive science.

Foundations of Academic Success: Words of Wisdom

Foundations of Academic Success: Words of Wisdom (FAS: WoW) introduces you to the various aspects of student and academic life on campus and prepares you to thrive as a successful college student (since there is a difference between a college student and a successful college student). Each section of FAS: WoW is framed by self-authored, true-to-life short stories from actual State University of New York (SUNY) students, employees, and alumni.

Meet me at the fair
Meet me at the fair Sented by Emma

Together with the Olympics, world’s fairs are one of the few regular international events of sufficient scale to showcase a spectrum of sights, wonders, learning opportunities, technological advances, and new (or renewed) urban districts, and to present them all to a mass audience.

Computer Science Illustrated

The traditional lecture has been a standard teaching tool for university courses all around the world. However, students have different methods of learning, and for those who learn best through visual means, lectures are often not enough to understand the concepts. This is a particular problem in computer science, because a strong grasp of the fundamentals is vital to a student’s understanding of the complexities of programming and computing in general.

Instruction in Functional Assessment

Instruction in Functional Assessment introduces learners to functional assessment (FA), which includes a variety of assessment approaches (indirect, observational, and experimental) for identifying the cause of an individual’s challenging behavior for the purpose of designing effective treatments. FA is mandated by federal law and is a recognized empirically based approach to treatment of individuals with challenging behaviors (e.g., disruptive, selfinjurious, and aggressive behaviors). Instruction in FA is essential for students who will one day enter professions as educators, psychologists, social workers, counselors, or mental health professionals.

Algorithms for Reinforcement Learning

Reinforcement learning is a learning paradigm concerned with learning to control a system so as to maximize a numerical performance measure that expresses a long-term objective.

Teaching in a Digital Age
Teaching in a Digital Age Sented by Cameron

The book examines the underlying principles that guide effective teaching in an age when all of us, and in particular the students we are teaching, are using technology.

Music Learning with MOOCs
Music Learning with MOOCs Sented by Cameron

This book is the third in a sequence of books reflecting on the future of learning, and more specifically, how computers can give support to long-distance education. This challenge has recently become the focal point of attention with the rise of MOOCs that finally implement the visions that advanced thinkers proposed already decades ago.
