Sir Ken Robinson – Learning {Re}imagined (video)

Sir Ken Robinson – Learning {Re}imagined (video) | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
As a treat for the readers of this blog here is a longer and more complete interview with Sir Ken Robinson that was recorded as part of the Learning {Re}imagined book where he discusses educational technology, creativity, assessment and the future of learning (15 minutes).   There are more exclusive videos contained within the book…

Interesting reflections on the nature of learning and the direction of education in the future.

Lisa Gorman's curator insight, March 26, 7:02 PM

I have a great admiration for the thinking of Sir Ken Robinson... He speaks so eloquently and argues for creative learning...and so much more...

 

A stand out quote for me from this interview;

 

"What tends to dull the appetite [for learning] is being force fed things that people can't see an immediately relevance in or don't have an immediate interest in it...or where they are forced to learn in situations where they are inimitable... you know, 8 hours a day, sit still, do as you're told."

 

Bring on different ways of engaging with people around learning so that they not only 'get it' but they really enjoy it and become life long learners.

 

I recommend this 15 minute video to you!

Cómo llevar a cabo el aprendizaje basado en problemas con las TIC

Cómo llevar a cabo el aprendizaje basado en problemas con las TIC | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Si tuviéramos que dar una definición sencilla de  lo que es el ABP (aprendizaje basado en problemas) nos quedamos con la que dio Barrows y Tamblin: "Aquel aprendizaje que resulta de un proceso de trabajo dirigido hacia la comprensión o resolución de un problema, siendo el problema el punto de partida del proceso de aprendizaje".

Claves en el desarrollo y aprendizaje de las Tecnologías de la Información y la Comunicación

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, November 30, 2014 10:47 AM

Muchas veces hablamos indistintamente de aprendizaje basado en proyectos y de aprendizaje basado en problemas como si fuesen lo mismo; sin embargo, y a modo de puntualización, el aprendizaje basado en proyectos se trata de un modelo formativo cuyos fundamentos son los mismos que los del aprendizaje basado en problemas pero que tiene como finalidad el logro o fabricación de un producto final.

A la hora de llevar a cabo una metodología ABP tenemos que tener claros cuáles son los roles que desempeñan tanto alumnos como docentes en cada una de las diferentes fases por las que pasa el ABP.
