Taking Stock: Do MOOCs Only Work For Educated People? | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it

Recent studies of MOOC completion rates and participation indicate that students with some college experience already do better.
 A recent University of Pennsylvania study of the 16 courses that the university offered through Coursera indicates that classes with thousands of students may not close the college gap as quickly as some champions had hoped.

Not Remembering Ourselves

Of course, technology has always promised to make labor cheaper, or at least easier. From the invention of fire to the wheel, from washing machines to nail guns, the goal of technology has always been to lessen the load of physical labor, to “outsource” it, if you will. We don’t find outsourcing our physical labor to be problematic, though. What makes us uncomfortable is when technology encroaches on the labor of our brains rather than our bodies.

How to Get a Job at Google

Hint: Getting hired is not about your G.P.A. It’s about what you can do and what you know.

 

The world only cares about - and pays off on - what you can do with what you know (and it doesn't care how you learned it). And in an age when innovation is increasingly a gropu endeavor, it also cares about a lot of soft skills- leadership, humility, collaboration, adaptability and loving to learn and re-learn. This will be true no matter where you go to work.

Heutagogy, Self-Directed Learning and Complex Work

Heutagogy, Self-Directed Learning and Complex Work | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it
Then came Heutagogy advocating principles of self-determined learning:

“A heutagogical learning environment facilitates the development of capable learners and emphasizes both the development of learner competencies as well as development of the learner’s capability and capacity to learn" (Ashton and Newman, 2006; Hase and Kenyon, 2000). Heutagogy applies a holistic approach to developing learner capabilities, with learning as an active and proactive process, and learners serving as “the major agent in their own learning, which occurs as a result of personal experiences” (Hase & Kenyon, 2007, p. 112).

Learning, when it happens, is about personal meaning and connection. There is a place for self-direction, but complexity and chaos theory also point out the interconnected nature of the universe and this applies to learning. We cannot live and learn on and as islands.

The art and tech sides of creativity - The MIT Tech

 If you've never Googled “arts at MIT,” I guarantee you'll be shocked at the vast array of arts activities, exhibits and events going on every week on campus, from alumni-produced films and student performances to professional shows by one of our many visiting artists. 


A2RU is a group of universities that — to put it frankly — aren’t viewed-as “artsy.” It includes MIT, Stanford, Virginia Tech, University of Michigan, and twenty-five others. Founded in 2011, the Alliance addresses the concern that universities are suffering from “a kind of mass amnesia for the heuristic power of art-making, and for the many functional similarities between art-making and scientific modes of inquiry,” according to AR2U’s founding proposal.

Education has to focus on learning how to learn – metacognition. School will still be important, but not to impart what happened during the Revolutionary War or to teach the quadratic formula. School, he said, should focus on teaching young people the intangibles, the things that make humans unique: relationships, flexibility, humanity, how to make discriminating decisions, resilience, innovation, adaptability, wisdom, ethics, curiosity, how to ask good questions, synthesizing and integrating information, and of course, creating.

Welcoming our digital fate

Susan Einhorn's insight:

As a person, I spend a lot of time thinking about my love-hate relationship with the digital present. I periodically delete my Facebook in what is usually a misguided effort to see the people I care about more in “real life” and less through a screen. I don’t text very much. Twitter is a weakness I hate to love and love to hate, but I overuse it shamelessly as a testing ground for bad jokes and as a quick news resource. I Snapchat. I Instagram. I occasionally use Tumblr and Tinder — but view my presence on those sites as the clearest indicator that an Internet intervention is warranted. I curate my digital life fairly carefully — not only because being a college student comes with endless reminders that your future employers are apparently hunched over a computer in a darkened room as we speak, scouring every detail of your personal life online — but because as much as I hate to admit it, I care about the way I present myself through what I post.

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools | Anytime Anywhere Learning | Scoop.it


Saying that it has always been this way, doesn’t count as a legitimate justification to why it should stay that way. Teacher and administrators all over the world are doing amazing things, but some of the things we are still doing, despite all the new solutions, research and ideas out there is, to put it mildly, incredible.


I’m not saying we should just make the current system better… we should change it into something else.


Via Susan Bainbridge
Susan Einhorn's insight:

Not incremental change - no more 'tweaking' - but schools imagined  anew. I would add ensuring that all students and teachers have their own fully functional, personal, portable laptop or tablet, that schedules need to be flexible, that informal learning be recognized as valuable and 'basic', that subjects no longer be 'silo-ed', and that 'education' is more about learning to ask good questions that drive inquiry than to only give correct answers.

The Technology Revolution and Its Role in Our Lives - Huffington Post

Personal growth takes on a whole new meaning in light of massive global changes never before seen in human history. The answer to "what do you want to be when you grow up?" may not exist for many of our young children today, as they will be working in jobs that have never been created before. Who knew 20 years ago that there would be "an app" for everything and you could carry dozens of them all with you on your phone?


So how to do we prepare for this major transition?

 

It appears that education and re-training will take a much bigger role in our lives. Investing in education will be even more important as it creates a new supply of skilled workers ready to meet society's demands

The Dawn of the Age of Artificial Intelligence

The advances we’ve seen in the past few years—cars that drive themselves, useful humanoid robots, speech recognition and synthesis systems, 3D printers,Jeopardy!-champion computers—are not the crowning achievements of the computer era. They’re the warm-up acts. As we move deeper into the second machine age we’ll see more and more such wonders, and they’ll become more and more impressive.

 

How can we be so sure? Because the exponential, digital, and recombinant powers of the second machine age have made it possible for humanity to create two of the most important one-time events in our history: the emergence of real, useful artificial intelligence (AI) and the connection of most of the people on the planet via a common digital network.

 

Either of these advances alone would fundamentally change our growth prospects. When combined, they’re more important than anything since the Industrial Revolution, which forever transformed how physical work was done.

What's the Maker Movement and Why Should I Care? | Scholastic.com

Both of these classes exemplify the trend that is pushing its way into more schools-the maker movement. The shift to "making" represents the perfect storm of new technological materials, expanded opportunities, learning through firsthand experience, and the basic human impulse to create. It offers the potential to make classrooms more child-centered: relevant and more sensitive to each child's remarkable capacity for intensity. Making is predicated on the desire that we all have to exert agency over our lives, to solve our own problems. It recognizes that knowledge is a consequence of experience, and it seeks to democratize access to a vast range of experience and expertise so that each child can engage in authentic problem solving.
