From Chalkboards to Tablets | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it

As the digital learner has emerged over the past ten years, we have noticed a significant shift in the student perspective on using technology for learning.  To bring new insights and context to this digital learning metamorphosis, “From Chalkboards to Tablets: The Emergence of the K-12 Digital Learner” examines the current views of students from Kindergarten through 12th grade with a special look at digital learners in third, sixth, ninth and twelfth grades.

Five learning and development (L&D) trends to follow | Peoplefluent

Five learning and development (L&D) trends to follow | Peoplefluent | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it

Enterprise organizations are beefing up their learning and development (L&D) budgets to gain significant performance advantages. Here are five trends to keep your eye on—and participate in—as you make your own L&D investments in the months ahead:

1. Tailored training—Organizations will tailor the learning experience to the needs of the enterprise as well as the employee. To sustain the enterprise’s growth, employers will ensure that their L&D strategies are directly aligned with their business strategies. To sustain the growth of their top performers, employers will tailor L&D opportunities to deliver the skills employees need to excel personally in a fast-paced, competitive marketplace. In addition, employers will support more on-demand learning to deliver content that is relevant and contextual to employees’ immediate needs (allowing them to put their new skills and knowledge to use once a training session is over). To support formal learning, employers will need to create customized development plans tailored specifically to employees’ job requirements and personal career goals.

2. Social and informal learning—U.S. companies spent 39% more on social learning in 2012 than they did in 2011, according to Bersin by Deloitte. There is every reason to believe this trend will continue. Organizations that wish to drive employee engagement and performance to meet business goals are becoming increasingly effective at creating and leveraging employee networks, disseminating knowledge across functional areas and throughout the company at large, and effectively creating informal mentoring by linking internal subject matter experts to younger and less experienced employees. Social and informal learning are all about capturing knowledge and expertise from inside and outside of the organization and then sharing it among employees with maximum efficiency. Many experts believe that social and informal learning will become increasingly synonymous and, ultimately, will help to supplant blended training programs. Learning environments, where continuous education and training take place spontaneously, are the wave of the future.

3. SaaS and mobile solutions—Employers will continue to embrace cloud-based solutions and the use of mobile devices. SaaS and mobile are essential for delivering increased amounts of streaming video, digital content and other types of new media that support on-demand learning. Naturally, SaaS and mobile solutions will generate security concerns and challenge employers to manage the suitability and accuracy of the new L&D content streaming in. In addition, Gartner estimates that by 2017 more than half of all companies will require employees to supply their own smart devices to do their jobs, and by 2018 70% of mobile professionals will conduct their work on personal smart devices. Clearly, the need to secure internal data—even as it is being shared over non-protected networks—will be a top concern for L&D and the enterprise at large.

4. Ease of use—To support the rise of on-demand learning, employers and vendors alike will devote greater attention to making learning management tools and resources easier to use. After all, on-demand learning needs to be fast and relevant from employees’ perspective or they simply won’t be engaged by it. And from the employers’ perspective, ease-of-use is critical to quickly solidify user adoption and to convey the knowledge workers need to complete immediate tasks. In light of all this, an enterprise’s learning professionals will be instrumental in determining which L&D tools actually live up to expectations and support learners effectively.

5. Collaborative learning cultures—Employers will work harder to create collaborative learning cultures for one very powerful reason: organizations that have strong learning cultures outperform those that don’t. Results-driven organizations will harness the younger generation’s affinity for online tools and social learning communities. They’ll encourage employees to build strong business networks online. And they’ll create easier access to corporate data, they’ll champion tools that facilitate content and knowledge sharing, and they’ll align training offerings with the skills necessary to achieve specific business goals. All of these initiatives are hallmarks of collaborative learning cultures—and they all support business growth.

Trends don’t mean much unless you take a chance and experiment yourself inside the enterprise. Start where your various talent ecosystems are already learning from one another today: online. Emulate the continuously collaborative informal learning behaviors that continue to proliferate personal and professional networks, which today are really one in the same. This will help with adoption when you start to implement these activities in your organization today.

Krissy Venosdale revised her Classroom A and Classroom B poster recently to represent "What does Learning Look Like". Some of these Classroom B descriptors indicate a learner-centered environment. What are some other descriptions that you would include?

 

Here are some of Krissy's thoughts behind Learning:

 

"Learning is a journey.  Our kids change. The world changes.  We change as teachers.  This morning, I made a revised version of Classroom A versus Classroom B.  As someone pointed out, it’s not a black and white issue. There is so much grey and so much individual choice.  I’m not saying A or B is better for everyone. I’m saying you’ve gotta think and really understand what you want learning to look like in your classroom."

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, December 12, 2012 7:47 AM

Barbara Weed shares a cartoon that illustrates how she snares her students.  One in particular says it all: "Let students choose the idea that is closest to their heart."  She goes on to explain the strategies she employed to give students ownership to their learning.

 

"I decided to see if I could get my students more engaged by letting them make all of the decisions about their projects. I still identified the concept that they needed to demonstrate, but I let the students design the work that they wanted to do in order to show that they understood the skills and concepts.

 

I try to provide multiple reflective opportunities to make sure that students are really invested in their choice. When my students care about their work, I can focus my attention on what they’re learning. The actual work, being on-task, and concerns about quality become non-issues. Their desire to engage makes learning seamless."

Information Abundance and Its Implications for Education

Information Abundance and Its Implications for Education | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it
As I read through the social media networks, the concept of information overload is continually being discussed.... I have re-framed information overload from being discussed as a cautionary consequence of the technology age to us living in a time of information abundance.
As educators, we have this gift of information abundance. It should be leveraged and strategically used for our own and our students’ learning. When educators do not acknowledge, incorporate, and integrate the many types and uses of our real world technologies, they are failing their students.

How do librarians adapt the way we approach what we do when we come from a tradition of information scarcity to an information age when information abundance is the new norm?

David Bramley's curator insight, January 10, 2013 2:20 PM

I've become more than a little obsessed with adding social learning to the educational offer for adults.  This post is a timely reminder that more fundamental changs are required, where educators are no longer the gatekeepers to information, open access to the internet is more important than expensive text books and information and digital literacies need to be embedded across the curriculum.

 

As a bonus, right at the end there is a great Pezi  on Personal Learning Networks or Students.  Brilliant :)

Donald Clark Plan B | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it

" the lecture or talk is a waste of time if it's not recorded and put up on YouTube, as many more people will watch online than offline."


"Unlike education, the web has a habit of producing pedagogic models that have massive user adoption. Short, instructive video is one such Massive Open Online Pedagogy (MOOP). YouTube showed that short, video clips have a serious contribution to play in learning. YouTube EDU put lectures online but if anything this was the old world porting its old bad practices into the new world. A bad one hour lecture isn't made better by putting it on YouTube and believe me, YouTube EDU is  jammed with bad lectures"

Donald Clark provides an excellent broad rationale on why YouTube is one of the the most important Learning Platforms and search tools. I think he captures the pedagogical affordances for the viewer -  for me it also raises the question - Is one more than a viewer on YouTube?


And then of course there is the constructivist aspect of YouTube - acessed throuh the Editor  and Video Mangager

Status, knowledge, learning and adaptability, Part 1 « Chris Corrigan | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it

As a facilitator, people often comment on “safety” in group settings. Most group work I have done in my career has been safe, relatively speaking. There may have been the possibility of retaliatory actions for speaking up, workplace bullying or general boorish behaviour, but I have hardly ever (!) worked in spaces where real physical safety was an issue.

Still, the issue of safety and fear comes up surprisingly often, and this article at the edge.org gave me a few insights about this problem.

This article looks to ancient human history to understand some of these dynamics and it begins by looking at two kinds of status in humans: dominance and prestige. In dominance hierarchies we are afraid of the higher status person and there is deference and backing away. In prestige hierarchies we are drawn to the higher status person because they have information that can help us survive.
