To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society | 21st century education | Scoop.it
Why haven't education reform efforts amounted to much? Because they start with the wrong problem, says John Abbott, director of the 21st Century Learning Initiative. Overhauling the educational paradigm means replacing the metaphor — the concept of the world and its inhabitants as machine-like entities — that has shaped the education system, as well as many other aspects of our culture.

Lets turn students into content creators instead of consumers where love of learning supersedes assessment!

Becoming Invisible In My Classroom
Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

How to learn to facilitate a classroom is all part of a new way of teaching.  With access to information so readily available it is easy to see why students need to learn from the cloud, and evaluate their research.

Technology in education: if students aren't worried, why are teachers?

Technology in education: if students aren't worried, why are teachers? | 21st century education | Scoop.it

I couldn't agree more. As teachers, our role must change to one that enables, guides, personalises and embraces digital technology as a fundamental part of student learning. The most dangerous thing we can do to our students is to keep doing what our teachers and professors did to us:

Replacing the old with the new is what 21 century education is all about.  We cannot know all the answers but with digital technology the answer is just a click away.

Our role is to convince teacheer sthat Technology is here to stay. Nothing more scary than colleagues stubbornly refusing to get into the wave of this digital world.It reminds me of the times when voiced films were seen as "the devil"

Charmaine Thomae's curator insight, October 22, 2016 12:14 PM
I have always wondered why teachers, some not all, are hesitant about using mobile devices for the learning process. Some of the worry is that it's new and the student know more about the devices in general. This news report interviewed some teachers to see what they thought.

How to Flip the Classroom

How to Flip the Classroom | 21st century education | Scoop.it

Flipping the classroom involves assigning web-based content as homework that replaces the traditional in-class lecture, making time and space available in the classroom for more inquiry-based projects. Professor Eric Mazur began experimenting with this instructional style at Harvard in the 1990s. In 2004, the Khan Academy videos helped bring the classroom flip into secondary education.

There is a lot of controversy and passion surrounding the flipped classroom. Advocates of flipping point to many advantages including students learning at their own pace, availability of online lessons and time for real work in the classroom. Opponents of flipping point to holes including student access to internet & computer at home, time constraints for students at home if all subjects are flipped and merely transferring bad classroom instructional practices from classroom to the web.
