What the education system can learn from L&D

What the education system can learn from L&D | Education Matters | Scoop.it

This summer, just as every year, the UK's 19th Century exams system has been under national scrutiny with the perennial debates in the media around inefficiencies, grade inflation, dumbing down, marking scandals, cheating and more. But while our children in schools sit in exam halls and attempt to demonstrate the outcomes of their learning with a three-hour written paper, here in the world of work-based L&D there are shining examples all around us of how it should and could be done.

3 Different Things You Can Do With Google Classroom

3 Different Things You Can Do With Google Classroom | Education Matters | Scoop.it

Google’s advance in the education field has brought to schools around the globe affordable devices and effortless access to educational content. Google’s latest solution for learning is called Google Classroom. Although Google Classroom will be available at the beginning of the school year to all schools that have adopted Google Apps for Education, the Mountain View based company granted access to Google Classroom to a select few individuals in July. I was fortunate enough to be one of these early adopters/testers of Google Classroom, and I can honestly say that I am impressed by its simplicity, and its ability to seamlessly integrate Google Docs, Sheets,Drive, Gmail, and more in order to provide a wonderful and highly productive user experience

Jo Blannin - The Know Tech Teacher's curator insight, September 11, 7:21 PM

This great article shows how we can use Tumblr in our classrooms. I love the suggestion of a quick and easy website or hosting an online debate. They also point out that we need to protect kids online, but they need experience to learn how to do this - Tumblr could be a good way to do this :0)


Do you use Tumblr?

I have an account but don't check it much...maybe I should be?

Any tips or advice for me?

NancyEvans@ATS-LU's curator insight, September 12, 7:01 AM

Tumblr is an easy to use blogging format which emphasizes visuals.

Wasn’t the Industrial Age supposed to be over in the 1970s? Oh, it was? Then why are so many companies still following the Industrial Age script?

 

In a word:habit. Comfort, even. Let’s face it; we humans don’t just change on a whim, just because we feel like it. Most of us… well, we stick with what’s comfortable, what’s “normal” to us; what we’re good at.

A Flipped Classroom? Or Should It Be Sideways? | Edudemic

A Flipped Classroom? Or Should It Be Sideways? | Edudemic | Education Matters | Scoop.it

Since it is a less radical departure from what students and parents expect, there’s less stress and uncertainty. If you fear that students may not have access to video lectures or get distracted from learning while on their own time, then teacher resources and equipment available in most schools solve this logistics problem. Wealth and home situation do not become a barrier to learning.

Perhaps School as we know is on the way out, but education and School are not interchangeable words although they are used that way frequently. Actually, School as we know it should have been on the way out a long time ago. With the current reformers who propose change that does not change the structure, it is not happening soon.
