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.

"If you’re on the education technology fence, you probably can’t decide which device or app is the best one to really use. You aren’t sure if you want to jump into the edtech pool with Evernote, Moodle, an iPad, a Chromebook, or some other hot new product or service. That’s because there are an overwhelmingly large number of options out there."

Tumblr is a popular and easy to use blogging platform. This article points out some ways to use Tumblr that you might not immediately think of. 

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.

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 | 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.
