Howard Gardner, multiple intelligences and education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Howard Gardner's work around multiple intelligences has had a profound impact on thinking and practice in education - especially in the United States. Here we explore the theory of multiple intelligences; why it has found a ready audience amongst educationalists; and some of the issues around its conceptualization and realization.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, Today, 3:48 PM

The key is integrating what is new and discarding the unusable. School tends to operate at either end. It is an all or nothing. It should be using what is most appropriate in a given context and situation.

Cuaderno de campo: La universidad trivializa el plagio

Cuaderno de campo: La universidad trivializa el plagio | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Copiar, soplar, la chuleta, han sido constantes de la enseñanza, pero el plagio en la universidad es otra cosa. En primaria y buena parte de la secundaria el alumno es menor, va obligado y es sólo uno más, pero el universitario es ya adulto, ha elegido estudiar y lo que estudia y lo ha hecho para entrar en el mercado de trabajo por la puerta grande, como profesional. El día de mañana sus clientes, su público o la ciudadanía confiarán en ella o él como funcionario, periodista, médico... Nadie pretende que sea un genio, pero sí que actúe con criterio. Por eso el plagio es inadmisible en un estudiante. No se me escapa que, en el entorno digital y en la universidad, el problema implica otros muchos aspectos, entre los cuales la construcción colaborativa del conocimiento, el uso de internet, la sustitución en la propia docencia de las fuentes originales por refritos ni siquiera siempre reconocidos, etc. pero ahora sólo quiero ocuparme del acto en sí como violación voluntaria de una norma y de la tibia respuesta al mismo.

Why lectures are dead (or soon will be)

Why lectures are dead (or soon will be) | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Lectures go back as far as ancient Greece and Roman times, and certainly from at least the start of the European university, in the 13th century. The term ‘lecture’ comes from the Latin to read. This was because in the 13th century, most books were extremely rare. They were painstakingly handcrafted and illustrated by monks, often from fragments or collections of earlier and exceedingly rare and valuable scrolls remaining from more than 1,000 years earlier from ancient Greek or Roman times, or were translated from Arabic sources, as much documentation was destroyed in Europe during the Dark Ages following the fall of the Roman empire. As a result, a university would often have only one copy of a book, and it may have been the only copy available in the world. The library and its collection therefore became critical to the reputation of a university, and professors had to borrow the only text from the library and literally read from it to the students, who dutifully wrote down their own version of the lecture. - See more at: http://www.tonybates.ca/2014/07/27/why-lectures-are-dead-or-soon-will-be/#.U9geKd_CjGM.scoopit

Helge Scherlund's eLearning News: Seven Models for Blended Learning Success | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Blended learning is as an educational program in which a student learns,at least in part, through the online delivery of content and instruction with some element of student control over time, place, path and/or pace. While a student still attends a supervised “brick-and-mortar” location away from home, face-to-face classroom methods are combined with computer-mediated activities to provide an integrated learning experience.
