Google Form Notifications | Practical Ed Tech


  • Creating and publishing a Google Form is a great way to collect information from students and their parents. A couple of popular ways to use forms is as quizzes for students and as sign-up sheets for parent-volunteers for school events. If the form that you create is going to be online for a while, consider using Form Notifications to receive email updates about form submissions.  - Wayne Holly

Why Online Programs Fail, and 5 Things We Can Do About It - Hybrid Pedagogy


  • A critical view about e-learning as it mostly happens today. - Rafael Morales

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

More and different types of learning and teaching are available in the digital environment. We must convince ourselves that we don’t yet understand digital education so we may open the doors more broadly to innovation and creativity

we shouldn’t set off on a cruise, and build the ship as we go
  • Why not? I might not be possible in the physical world, but that does not mean it cannot be done in the digital one. - Rafael Morales

Few institutions pay much attention to re-creating these spaces online
  • They do not need to. The digital learning space does not have to be like the physical one. - Rafael Morales

What spaces can we build online that aren’t quantified, tracked, scored, graded, assessed, and accredited?
  • Are social networking applications you are talking about? - Rafael Morales

What we have is a series of online classes with no real infrastructure to support the work that students do on college campuses outside and between those classes
  • In physical schools that work have to be done on campus, because when students leave they become distant from each other. But that does not happen online: students are close together both inside and outside the "campus"; actually, they are simultaneously inside and outside campus. - Rafael Morales

Up to now, online learning has taken little notice of the web upon which it’s suspended

Today, the road to access doesn’t necessarily detour through the university, and anyone, of just about any age, can travel it.
  • This is, of course, an overstatement, as not everyone is prepared, given their development and living conditions, to take advantage of Internet. - Rafael Morales
