5 Ways Technology Is Disrupting Education

5 Ways Technology Is Disrupting Education | Are you a Global Citizen? | Scoop.it
We always hear that technology is changing everything. But what exactly are the big ideas that are reshaping how students learn and teachers teach?
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

As classrooms shift from a teacher-centric model — where all students listen quietly to a lecturing instructor to learn the material — learning more often becomes project-based, and sometimes even game-based. Apps and educational games enable teachers not only to differentiate lessons to each student’s needs, but also to get students to work in teams and complete challenges and assignments together. Open-source learning platforms like Moodle enable teachers to set up courses where students can engage in discussion when they’re away from the classroom.

New Proposals on Post-2015 Education Goals: How Do They Compare? | Global Partnership for Education

New Proposals on Post-2015 Education Goals: How Do They Compare? | Global Partnership for Education | Are you a Global Citizen? | Scoop.it
Last week saw the announcement of proposed education targets following UNESCO’s Global Education Meeting in Muscat, at the same time as the zero draft of Open Working Group recommendations on sustainable development goals was made public.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

One of the recognized failures of the current set of Education for All and Millennium Development Goals is insufficient attention to setting targets on the means by which desired outcomes would be achieved. Both the Open Working Group and Global Education Meeting proposals acknowledge the importance of including targets on means of implementation this time around, with some similarities but also wide divergences in how to do so for education.

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

You can also break up your presentation with question and answer sections, pauses between slides, and props to demonstrate your points. A general rule for timing while speaking is that each slide or video clip should only explain about 15 words – too many words per image will cause audiences to become bored and look away from the screen, too little will jolt them from screen to screen too quickly.

When People Talk, Great Things Happen - Speech | Eurasia Review | Are you a Global Citizen? | Scoop.it
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Inter-cultural dialogue has often been defined as an open and respectful exchange of views between individuals and groups belonging to different cultures that would lead to a deeper understanding of the other.

However, while dialogue is critical, it must be followed with carefully developed measures designed to create and preserve a harmonious and inclusive society. A harmonious and inclusive society in turn enables the individual to participate in and to identify himself or herself with the community as a whole. Such identification is a key factor in the prevention of future conflicts and in advancing post-war reconciliation.

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

...So we now have two totally independent analyses of distance education students in the USA, with a minimum number of 5.5 million and a maximum number of 7.1 million, i.e. between roughly a quarter and a third of all post-secondary students. From the Allen and Seaman longitudinal studies, we can also reasonably safely assume that online enrollments have been increasing between 10-20% per annum over the last 10 years, compared with overall enrollments of 2-5% per annum....

Mexico boasts a staggering genetic diversity, study shows | Are you a Global Citizen? | Scoop.it
Writers, artists and historians have long pondered what it means to be Mexican. Now science has offered its answer, and it could change how medicine uses racial and ethnic categories to assess disease risk, testing and treatment.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

To illustrate their point, the researchers compared their new genetic data with the results of lung function tests for children in Mexico City and Latinos in the San Francisco Bay Area. They discovered that pulmonary function varied in ways that were mirrored in DNA. It was as if someone with a fraction of Maya ancestry had lungs that were 10 years older than someone with a bit of northern indigenous heritage.
