Education vs Learning - What Exactly is the Difference? - EdTechReview™ (ETR) | Education Matters | Scoop.it
Surely learning and formal education are not entirely the same thing? But what exactly is the difference?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 7, 6:44 PM

There are two intertwined definitions of education and only one is included here. Educare is leading students out of child. Educere is allowing students to gain control over their learning and realizing they have support when needed. We have eliminated the latter replacing it with the instrumental version called learning which is what School is about.

“Education is what people do to you and learning is what you do for yourself,” said Joi Ito in his TED2014 talk. “You’re not going to be on top of mountain all by yourself with a #2 pencil … What we need to learn is how to learn.” Indeed, traditional education may not be for …

Some good tips that we can all follow over the summer.    I really like #2: READ.   Reading transports us to places and introduces us to situations that can inform our worldview in the most significant ways.

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning?

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning? | Education Matters | Scoop.it

'Learning thrives on error'

"Among all the influences that can make a profound difference in student learning is how we think about our role!  So, start with looking inward and ask about the mind frames you have as an educator. 

It is through these mind frames that we make decisions in the classroom and school, and it is argued that educators highly imbued with these mind frames are among the high impact educators."

Teachers need to recast themselves as learners alongside students. The days of the expert are behind us despite the advent of TED talks and other media where we still seem to think the sage on the stage is the way to impart knowledge, wisdom, and truth. There are moments for that, but learning is very relational, contingent, contextual, and personal.

"A while ago, I created this poster A Tale of Two Classrooms.  It wasn't meant as a statement of Classroom B is best.  It wasn't even meant as a statement of Classroom A is awful.  It was meant as a representation of Classroom A and B."

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."

Information Abundance and Its Implications for Education

Information Abundance and Its Implications for Education | Education Matters | 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 5:20 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 :)

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in #eLearning)

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in #eLearning) | Education Matters | Scoop.it

"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."

A great list of elements that contribute to a good prompt. Prompts initiate curiosity via the stimulation of the release of hormones that trigger astrocytic cells (75% of all brain cells) in the brain to trigger neurons to map and automate complex neural patterns we call ideas and concepts. MT
