E-tivities are frameworks for enabling active and participative online learning. They enable purposefulness and promote remote learning together. The framework is very well researched and hence is evidence based.
You can use E-tivities with confidence across all disciplines and professions to provide purposeful connections for all learners. E-tivities used your institutional or corporate VLE/LMS that everyone has access (no new technology needed).
Why not give one a try today? Set it up yourself or perhaps ask a student to.
Invent your own:
or, try out this one:
Title: A million miles an hour? Really?
Purpose: Explore tools to succeed & get to know your peers.
Task Summary: Watch the video- do some thinking, and offer support and encouragement to your classmates
Spark: Watch this YouTube video
(At 3 minutes, it appears to finish- but keep going, there’s more)
Individual contribution: Do you agree Brian Cox is being ‘pedantic’ ? Post a thought or two about how you feel about uncertainty in the world. Does the video make you feel unique, determined to succeed, or find it worrying? (100 words max per posting). Complete by Wednesday please. <add a link to your forum on your VLE>
Participation: Come back in a couple of days and add encouragement or empathy to others. And post something new you’ve found encouraging about dealing with uncertainty.
Intervention: I’ll come in Sunday and give feedback and more ideas.
Schedule & Time: Around 60 mins spread over 2 or 3 sessions. More if you’d like to share the video with others. 30 minutes or so to read my summary.
