#hcil SearchParty: Learning to search in a web-based classroom (Ben Bederson)

  • MOOCs – massive online open courses; Udacity, Coursera, edX
  • how is the availability of large amounts of great online courses affecting UMD? is there still a place for classroom teaching? how does the university have to shift?
  • how can we use available technology in the classroom? laptops and smartphones, smart boards, regulation on personally identifying information, learn from each other, great instructors
  • teach students how to search in the classroom with SearchParty; did an exercise to try it; based on Google’s questions for teaching people to search better
  • maybe a better model is to do the reading, exercises at home, and come to the classroom to interact and extend the learning
  • we can build tools to support “The Flipped Classroom” – turning the traditional classroom on its head
  • problem in promoting this change: students prefer lecture courses to interactive courses – give worse reviews to interactive ones – because they are easier
