Traditional Education Beats Online in Key Areas, Opinion Poll Finds - Wired Campus

Traditional Education Beats Online in Key Areas, Opinion Poll Finds - Wired Campus | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

We’re years into the era of online education, and yet Americans still hold a skeptical view of online learning’s quality and value to employers, according to the results of a Gallup survey released on Tuesday.

 

In early October, Gallup asked two groups, each composed of more than 1,000 adults, whether they thought “online education is better” in a series of categories. In terms of “providing a wide range of options for curriculum” and “good value for the money,” online education got slightly better scores than traditional classroom-based education.

 

But online education scored much worse in four areas: in delivering “instruction tailored to each individual,” in providing “high-quality instruction from well-qualified instructors,” in offering “rigorous testing and grading that can be trusted,” and—finally, worst of all—in dispensing “a degree that will be viewed positively by employers.”

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

MOOC's, on-line courses and distance learning will not survive unless a "blended, competency based learning model is followed.

UDL and The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture

UDL and The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Jackie Gerstein proposes an experiential flipped classroom learning model where she believes there a  great opportunity to change the predominant didactic model of education that is especially prevalent in upper elementary through graduate school education.

 

"UDL is a strategy, a process that provides opportunities for all students, not just those with special needs (but I believe all learners have special needs), to be successful learners. This is the same goal for the flipped classroom model designed as an experiential learning cycle.

 

This model has experiential learning at the core of the learning process with the content videos supporting the learning rather than being the core or primary instructional piece. Experiential learning is the process of making meaning from direct experience.. Simply put, experiential learning is learning from experience. Experiential learning can be a highly effective educational method[ It engages the learner at a more personal level by addressing the needs and wants of the individual. For experiential learning to be truly effective, it should employ the whole learning wheel, from goal setting, to experimenting and observing, to reviewing, and finally action planning. This complete process allows one to learn new skills, new attitudes or even entirely new ways of thinking. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experiential_learning)"

 

Thank you Jackie for your insight in creating this model where all learners can experience success!

These characteristics partner with Web 2.0 tools to create a learning environment for students that puts them at the center. It becomes personalized when students use visual media of many kinds to communicate what they have learned. Students naturally use Web 2.0 tools with a degree of proficiency and demonstrate how deeply they have investigated the information.

Improving teaching and learning in the classroom should have been the focus of attention, not tests and charter schools. "Fast and dirty" solutions, such as pressuring teachers to raise test scores, were a mistake.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

In this article, Jack points out the lack of clear vision needed in 21st Century teaching and learning within the United States and claims:

"Research should have been used to find the best ways to improve the interaction between students and teachers. Four items arise from this research. First, students should be prepared for school before they begin. Second, more teachers need good verbal skills, should be better trained, and then retained through better pay. Third, the Common Core State Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards should be implemented. Finally, every child in America should have adequate and fairly distributed funds provided for his or her education." This is a common sense approach for a complex problem that would work if all stakeholders involved were to step back and look how to move forward.
