"As education changes, it depends primarily on internal catalysts for that change. That is, the “things” that change it are on the “inside” of that system itself, most notably data, assessment, PLCs, and running a distant fourth, technology. It’s interesting that technology is among the least impacting “agents of change” in the classroom. Certainly it has caused teachers and districts to update some of their practices (e.g., budgets, teacher training, and IT policies) but very little of their thinking (e.g., peer-to-peer and school-to-school collaboration, assessment forms, and learning models)."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 9, 2014 2:19 PM

There are some interesting slides and ideas. For example, wisdom is included as the bridge between knowledge and transforming. Just knowing something does not change us unless we apply and use knowledge wisely.

The 6 types of Questions your Students Need to Know about | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21st Education | Scoop.it

Learning is all about asking questions and finding answers to them. An inquisitive mind is one that goes beyond the status quo and probes deep below surface meanings. To foster such kind of  thinking inside our classroom requires some hard work and a serious investment in time and efforts. We, as teachers and educators, need to prepare the right environment where inquisitive minds can nourish and grow. We need to water this environment with a culture of asking questions.

5 Steps to Thinking Creatively

5 Steps to Thinking Creatively | 21st Education | Scoop.it
"Geniuses produce because they think fluently and flexibly," says Michael Michalko in his book "Cracking Creativity." "Fluency of thought means generating quantities of ideas." A key characteristic of genius is immense productivity. Thomas Edison held 1093 patents. Einstein published 248 papers. Darwin wrote 119 papers besides his theory of evolution. Therefore, if you want more creative/innovative thinking in your organization, you must encourage the generation of "quantities of ideas." However, if you stifle creative thinking by sending subtle or not so subtle messages that "we must just spend our time doing things the way we have always done"...because they have worked, you'll never find a better more efficient method. Your innovative risk-taking competitor will! That's how Microsoft climbed to success passing IBM and why they know they have to continue investing mega-millions in R&D. ===> You must encourage people to think creatively and take risks. <===

The Postmodality Era: How “Online Learning” Is Becoming “Learning”

The Postmodality Era: How “Online Learning” Is Becoming “Learning” | 21st Education | Scoop.it
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, between 2000 and 2008, the percentage of undergraduate students taking at least one online class grew from 8 to 20 percent.2 The Sloan Consortium states that approximately 5.6 million students enrolled in at least one online course during fall 2009, and nearly thirty percent of all higher education students now take at least one course online.3 Clearly, the percentage of students taking one or more courses online is trending upwards, reflecting an increased reliance on the flexibility they afford. Juxtapose these online learning growth trends with the following statistics: of the 17.6 million undergraduates currently enrolled in American higher education, only 15 percent attend four-year institutions and live on campus. Thirty-seven percent are enrolled part time and 32 percent work full time. Only 36 percent of students who are enrolled in four-year institutions actually graduate in four years.4 What these statistics indicate is a blurring boundary between the traditional and nontraditional. Even classically traditional students at classically traditional institutions increasingly require nontraditional flexibility to meet their educational goals. Online learning has become the catalyst for this change and it is forever altering the landscape of higher education.

Learning is learning. We are still trying to figure out the role digital technologies play in learning, but certainly learning happens. I think we have moved beyond postmodernism and need to think what that means in the context of teaching and learning.

17 Steps To Acquiring A New Skill Faster Than You Thought Possible

17 Steps To Acquiring A New Skill Faster Than You Thought Possible | 21st Education | Scoop.it
Excited about learning a new skill? 17 strategies including approaches from a noted, rapid learning expert. Excerpted, a curated, top level list 7 of the 17 strategies listed: 1. Deconstruct & Reverse Engineer Break it down into little pieces and master an isolated portion. Ex: learning guitar, learn how to press down a chord pattern with your fingers first without even trying to strum the chord. Once you are able to change between a couple of chord patterns, then add the strumming. 2. Pareto Principle 20% work that will give you 80% of the results. Learning a language? Do a quick search for “most commonly used French words” & learn these first. 5. Join a Group You’ll learn from others [and] make progress together. 8. F.O.C.U.S. Follow one course until success! Simply focus on the one new skill at hand until you get it done. 10. Find a Mentor Success leaves clues. …find an expert …to avoid…making the mistakes that they have made….the expert will fast-track your learning …have them personally walk you through what needs to be done. Reach out and send an email to them. 11. Sleep On It Practice your new skill within 4 hours of going to sleep. Josh Kaufman is a noted rapid learning expert and tells us that any practice done within this time frame causes your brain to embed the learning more rapidly into its neural pathways. Your memory and motor-mechanics needed are ingrained at a quicker level. 12. The 20 Hour Rule Along with that tip, Kaufman also suggests 20 as the magical number of hours to dedicate to learning the new skill. His reasoning is that everyone will hit a wall early on in the rapid learning stage and that “pre-committing” to 20 hours is a sure-fire way to push through that wall and acquire your new skill. 15. Ditch the Distractions Ditch social media, and the temptation to check any email. Before you ...practice, make sure whatever potential distractions are far from sight.
