¿Científico yo? Me gustaría, pero…no | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

De acuerdo a estudios sobre Iberoamérica de la OEI y otros organismos, en nuestra región la mayoría de los estudiantes no elige carreras científicas y el avance tecnológico todavía está en vías de desarrollo. Esto representa un gran reto para nuestros países que están inmersos en un mundo globalizado donde el avance científico y tecnológico es fundamental para el progreso y desarrollo de la sociedad.

Teoria de las inteligencias multiples

La teoría de las inteligencias múltiples es un modelo propuesto por Howard Gardner en el que la inteligencia no es vista como algo unitario que agrupa diferentes capacidades específicas con distinto nivel de generalidad, sino como un conjunto de inteligencias múltiples, distintas e independientes. Gardner define la inteligencia como la "capacidad de resolver problemas o elaborar productos que sean valiosos en una o más culturas".

The Ultimate Guide to MOOCs

The Ultimate Guide to MOOCs | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Professional and personal development are important to many people. Professional development allows you to stay current in your field, make connections with likeminded professionals, and satisfy any continuing learning requirements your job may have. Personal development allows you to grow as a person, learn new skills, and try new things.

In order to grow, professionally or personally, in the past, you had to sign up for college courses, pay a lot of money, and rush to class after work or on weekends. But that set-up as changed. Online courses, many of which are totally free, have revolutionized the way in which many people access professional and personal development. Thanks to the advent of massive open online courses (MOOCs), people can attend free courses offered by Stanford, Harvard, and MIT in the luxury of their own home, taking the courses at their own pace at a time that is convenient.

Worth having a look at the learning points.

Jedd Bartlett's comment, July 6, 5:32 PM
This has been clear since late last century - the power of technology to shift control of learning to the learner - and thus lead to transformation in learning systems. The point here I guess is that limited access to technology need not limit this power to transform.

Smart cities need smart citizens

Smart cities need smart citizens | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

We are connecting our cities to the cloud via the internet of everything, so that objects share data with each other. With these data, governments, organizations, and companies can sense patterns and make decisions – from traffic control to geographically specific advertising. But this is merely the tip of the iceberg of the real potential of smart cities and digital networks. A major challenge for society will be to enable an intelligent and aggressively engaged citizenry to build upon the potential of these growing digital interconnections.


For the past century we have compartmentalized the life of the citizen. At work, the citizen is an ‘employee’. Outside the office he may be a ‘consumer’. Sometimes she is referred to as a ‘taxpayer’. All of these are constraining labels, ignoring the full spectrum of citizenship. As the network era connects people and things, society needs to reconnect with the multifaceted citizen. This is the primary role the smart city can play.


Harold Jarche will be speaking this Wednesday in Issy-les-Moulineaux, France at a conference on ‘The Smart City, the Cloud, and Citizens’ (link in French).  His presentation will be short and focused. Here are the main points, in English. The French version may be webcast, so watch my Twitter feed for updates.

David Johnson:“El aprendizaje en grupo hace más fuertes a los alumnos”. Deia, Noticias de Bizkaia

David Johnson:“El aprendizaje en grupo hace más fuertes a los alumnos”. Deia, Noticias de Bizkaia | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

El profesor estadounidense David W. Johnson, referente mundial en aprendizaje cooperativo o en grupo, mantuvo ayer en Bilbao que el objetivo de este sistema educativo es “hacer más fuertes” como personas a los miembros del grupo. Johnson dio una conferencia sobre esta materia en la cuarta jornada de la Conferencia Internacional de Pensamiento ICOT (por sus siglas en inglés), el más importante congreso internacional sobre pensamiento e inteligencia en la educación, que concluye hoy en la capital vizcaina.


El doctor en Psicología Social por la Universidad de Columbia (EE.UU.) y fundador, junto con su hermano Roger, del Centro de Aprendizaje Cooperativo de la Universidad de Minnesota, sostuvo que, en una clase, el profesor puede optar por uno de los tres sistemas educativos que hay: el competitivo, que busca destacar al mejor de la clase; el individual y el cooperativo. De todos ellos, afirmó, este último es el “más útil, más importante y más poderoso, si queremos que en una clase los alumnos sean activos, hablen, no estén callados y se relacionen entre ellos, en vez de estar desconectados”. “Los alumnos que cooperan entre sí en el aprendizaje hablan explicando lo que hacen, están activos y están conectados a sus compañeros”, sentenció.
