The Global Search for Education: Education and Jobs | Education Matters | Scoop.it

"The Future of Employment study makes clear that what matters most today is what you can do with what you know, rather than how much you know."
- Dr. Tony Wagner

 

We need to create schools that coach students for skill and will, in addition to teaching content. If we don't make this transition quickly, a growing number of our youth will be unemployable at the same time that employers complain that they cannot find new hires who have the skills they need. - Dr. Tony Wagner

There is no doubt the type of jobs available today and in the future are different and will be different than they have been. Having said this, children learn in concrete ways and not in abstract ways based on distant objectives. That is an adult way of doing things in education.

Moodle’s top four killer features which support and evidence quality teaching and learning

Moodle’s top four killer features which support and evidence quality teaching and learning | Education Matters | Scoop.it

As an online system, Moodle LMS provides tools to track and monitor effective online education and training which is not possible in traditional learning and assessment settings.  This information can then be used to improve learning outcomes.

 

The information can also be used to provide the evidence needed by regulatory bodies, such as ASQA, TEQSA, professional accreditation/registration agencies, to demonstrate that your organisation is delivering quality teaching and learning programs which meet learners’ needs.

 

Here are Moodle LMS’s top four killer features which support and evidence quality teaching and learning:

1. It provides tools to create educationally sound and engaging learning experiences

2. It provides useful learning analytics and ways to motivate learners

3. It provides an effective way of storing and retrieving past learners’ work, feedback and results

4. It provides an easy way to gather feedback from learners for continuous improvement

5 Steps To A Synced Classroom

5 Steps To A Synced Classroom | Education Matters | Scoop.it

"In just the last decade, the image of technology in the classroom has shifted from rows of desktops in a dedicated computer lab (all facing the same direction) to one where a variety of different devices coexist, often uneasily, in and out of the lab. The role of the teacher, on the other hand, remains dynamic as ever: morphing hour to hour, if not minute to minute, between lecturer, coach, guide, mentor, referee, and on-call problem solver. Has the unleashing of technology out of the lab, away from bulky desktops, provided the classroom with better tools to support the teacher in all her roles, and the students in all their activities?"

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society | Education Matters | Scoop.it
Why haven't education reform efforts amounted to much? Because they start with the wrong problem, says John Abbott, director of the 21st Century Learning Initiative. Overhauling the educational paradigm means replacing the metaphor — the concept of the world and its inhabitants as machine-like entities — that has shaped the education system, as well as many other aspects of our culture.
