the slow pace of transforming our pedagogy

the slow pace of transforming our pedagogy | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

I still hear too many faculty either wanting to ban technology in the classroom or lamenting the proliferation of too many brands of devices or just completely ignoring the possibilities for useful work in the classroom. What can I do about it? I can’t tell you how to teach. That’s #1. And I don’t want to. I know that teaching is a creative process and that faculty have to have the time and the interest to overhaul a project or a course or just the way everyday interaction with students is handled. And here’s where a nice pair of articles from Hybrid Pedagogy comes in to remind us that developing a digital pedagogy follows the same process that made us teachers and scholars to begin with.

Adam Heckler writes:

" The worst part about it is that the technology world moves so fast and changes so rapidly that the jargon and slang is extremely hard to keep up with, even for people who try to pay close attention.

So today I thought I’d bring you a mini-encyclopedia or mini-dictionary of sorts, where I’ll lay out some of the more confusing technology terms that educators will encounter on a regular basis. I’ll do my best to explain them as well, so you can at least sound knowledgeable if you are, say, stuck in a conversation with someone who knows a lot about technology. Here we go!..."

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, March 2, 2013 9:02 PM

Just finished chapter 8 in High Impact Instruction by Jim Knight.   To summarize:  

 

Cooperative learning is any structured, sytematic learning activity in which groups of learners work together to achieve a common goal.  It is a high impact strategy because it:

 

ensures engagement

facilitates formative assessment

facilitates differentiated instruction

allows students to collaboratively construct knowledge

develops students' communication skills

prepares students for life after school

 

It is most successful when teachers:

 

understand learning structure

create positive interdependence

teach expectations

teach social skills

determine optimum makeup of groups

manage time successfully

use an attention signal

 

Five learning structures that are easy"

 

turn to your neighbor

think, pair, share

jigsaw

value line

This is a good article about shifts from traditional modes of learning and training to come in line with emerging trends in teaching and training. It presents a wholistic concept for how a teacher can combine analog and digital processes and concetps to ensure successful experiences for the learner.

A really good post which argues that it is the learning orientation that determines the pedagogical method selected for instruction. The comparision of pedagogical methods employed in two courses on Coursera reveal the clashes between the views on how people learn.
