A Pedagogical Framework For Digital Tools

A Pedagogical Framework For Digital Tools | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it
We've needed a strong pedagogical framework for digital tools since the introduction of technology into education. Hopefully this helps.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas, Louise Robinson-Lay, Ken Morrison, Lynnette Van Dyke, Rui Guimarães Lima
Miloš Bajčetić's insight:

The monological form of teaching – Learning is the student's acquisition of this knowledge.Tools – distributing and intermediary tools.

 

The dialogical form of teaching – Learning is seen as the student's development of this inherent basis of knowledge. Tools that support students' problem oriented; simulations and more advanced learning games.

 

The polyphonic form of teaching – Learning is the student's participation in exchange of many different individuals' perception of the world.

Tools that support equal collaboration

Thank you, we all need to move between frameworks.
Dolly Bhasin 's curator insight, December 27, 2012 3:10 AM

The framework is based on a distinction between a monological, a dialogical, and a polyphonic form of teaching. The three forms of teaching can be distinguished by their different perceptions of how learning takes place, and by their different perceptions of the relations between subject matter, teacher and student. By considering which form of teaching one wants to practice, one may, on the basis of the pedagogical framework, assess whether it would be appropriate to use a specific tool in teaching.

Ken Robinson: How to escape education's death valley | Video on TED.com

Sir Ken Robinson outlines 3 principles crucial for the human mind to flourish -- and how current education culture works against them. In a funny, stirring talk he tells us how to get out of the educational "death valley" we now face, and how to nurture our youngest generations with a climate of possibility.

 

Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson challenges the way we're educating our children. He champions a radical rethink of our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence

 

 

Miloš Bajčetić's insight:

“The real role of leadership in education … is not and should not be command and control. The real role of leadership is climate control, creating a climate of possibility.”

 

Great Talk!

Working memory and teaching the ten percent

Working memory and teaching the ten percent | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it

‘Working memory’ is the brain’s post-it note. It allows you to hold information in mind and WORK with it. We make mental scribbles of what we need to remember. By understanding working memory you will be able to better support children’s learning and concentration. Most children have a working memory that is strong enough to quickly find the book and open to the correct page, but some don’t – approximately 10% in any classroom. A student who loses focus and often daydreams may fall in this 10%. A student who isn’t living up to their potential may fall in this 10%. A student who may seem unmotivated may fall in this 10%. In the past, many of these students would have languished at the bottom of the class, because their problems seemed insurmountable and a standard remedy like extra tuition didn’t solve them. But emerging evidence shows that many of these children can improve their performance by focusing on their working memory. Working memory is a foundational skill in the classroom and when properly supported it can often turn around a struggling student’s prospects.

Why the edtech bubble could burst

Why the edtech bubble could burst | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it
There is mounting evidence, however, that without proper teacher training and accommodation for already busy schedules and lack of funding for building tech skills, any effort to bring devices into the classroom will likely fizzle.

“In every case of failure I have observed, the one-to-one computing plan puts enormous focus on the device itself, the enhancement of the network, and training teachers to use the technology,” Alan November of November Learning, an educational support services firm, wrote in a 2013 editorial. “Adding a digital device to the classroom without a fundamental change in the culture of teaching and learning will not lead to significant improvement. Unless clear goals across the curriculum—such as the use of math to solve real problems—are articulated at the outset, one-to-one computing becomes ‘spray and pray.’”

Using Grading Policies to Promote Learning

Using Grading Policies to Promote Learning | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it

We take our grading responsibilities seriously, although most of us wouldn’t rank grading among our favorite teaching tasks. Grades matter—to students, their parents, those who award scholarships, employers, and graduate and professional schools. Who doesn’t think they’re important? But our focus is on the grades, not the policies that govern what’s graded, how much a certain activity counts, or those mechanisms used to calculate the grades.

When students talk about the grades we’ve “given” them, we are quick to point out that we don’t “give” grades, students “earn” them. And that’s correct. It’s what the student does that determines the grade. But that statement sort of implies that we don’t have much of a role in the process—that we’re simply executing what the grading policy prescribes. We shouldn’t let that response cloud our thinking. Who sets up the course grading policy? Who controls it? Who has the power to change it or to refuse to change it? It’s these policies that involve us up to our eyeballs.

A Quick & Dirty Guide to Perfect Digital Note-Taking

A Quick & Dirty Guide to Perfect Digital Note-Taking | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it
All things being equal, I’d choose handwritten notes over digital notes any day of the week — but all things aren’t equal. While I love the feel of pen, pad, and paper, the truth is that digital notes are way more convenient in this modern age.

There are several downsides, of course, and we’ll address them throughout this article, but the biggest problem is that it’s hard to be efficient as a digital note-taker. It’s just not as easy or fluid as traditional notes — that is, until you learn how to take notes the right way.

Here are some of the most effective tips for becoming a digital note-taking pro, and they’re so useful that you may even end up preferring digital over handwritten!

'Sometimes I'm terrified' of the Internet of Things, says father of the Internet

'Sometimes I'm terrified' of the Internet of Things, says father of the Internet | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it
Vint Cerf is known as a "father of the Internet," and like any good parent, he worries about his offspring -- most recently, the IoT.

"Sometimes I'm terrified by it," he said in a news briefing Monday at the Heidelberg Laureate Forum in Germany. "It's a combination of appliances and software, and I'm always nervous about software -- software has bugs."

The Internet of Things will offer the ability to manage many of the appliances we depend on, acknowledged Cerf, who won the Turing Award in 2004. With its ability to continuously monitor such devices, it also promises new insight into our use of resources, he said.

Devices such as Google's Nest thermostat, for instance, can "help me decide how well or poorly I've chosen my lifestyle to minimize cost and my use of resources -- it can be an important tool," he said.

As with so many technological tools, however, there are plenty of potential downsides. Safety is one of them.

The Unique Power of Afterschool Learning

The Unique Power of Afterschool Learning | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it

Education in this country is often the subject of loud and rancorous debate. It is one, however, that most frequently concerns what happens during school hours. But academic and non-academic learning and development don’t stop once the last bell of the day rings. In fact, as any good educator knows, even when a school day is executed perfectly, students will still struggle if they’re not receiving the support they need in the wider community and at home.

 

Afterschool programs are an important and impactful way to address this issue, as they have the potential to continue and even broaden learning while busy parents complete their workdays. Still, though tossing kids into the cafeteria with some Goldfish Crackers will keep them out of any immediate danger, this is not the kind of approach that will radically affect a student’s future. What, then, does a good afterschool program look like, and what can it do for students – particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds?

Making a mistake can be rewarding, study finds: MRI study shows failure is a rewarding experience when the brain has a chance to learn from its mistakes | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it
The human brain learns two ways - either through avoidance learning, which trains the brain to avoid committing a mistake, or through reward-based learning, a reinforcing process that occurs when someone gets the right answer. Scientists have found that making a mistake can feel rewarding, though, if the brain is given the opportunity to learn from its mistakes and assess its options.

The ‘flipped classroom’ is professional suicide

The ‘flipped classroom’ is professional suicide | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it
Historian Rachel Hope Cleaves recently identified a recurring meme in the history of food advertising: pigs slaughtering themselves. She first tweeted an image of pig leaping into a meat grinder. Others followed with different examples of suicide, some not requiring machines. Over and again, our porcine friends happily sacrifice themselves for our gustatory delectation. The irony of these pictures, if you know anything about pigs, is that they are among the smartest animals in the animal kingdom, and therefore unlikely to carve themselves up to be served on a platter. Yet there they are, happily chopping away.

This may explain why that discussion makes me think of college professors.

Promoting Academic Integrity in Your Online Course

It’s no secret that one of the biggest instructor concerns surrounding online courses is how to promote academic integrity, or in other words, how to prevent cheating, plagiarism, and falsification. After all, in an article published in the Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, Watson and Sottile found that “students felt that they were almost four times more likely to be dishonest in on-line classes than in live classes” (Watson & Sottile, 2010). While this statistic may raise alarm, there are a variety of ways in which instructors can foster academic integrity within their online courses.

How to optimise your brain's waste disposal system

The human brain can be compared to something like a big, bustling city. It has workers, the neurons and glial cells which co-operate with each other to process information; it has offices, the clusters of cells that work together to achieve specific tasks; it has highways, the fibre bundles that transfer information across long distances; and it has centralised hubs, the densely interconnected nodes that integrate information from its distributed networks.

Like any big city, the brain also produces large amounts of waste products, which have to be cleared away so that they do not clog up its delicate moving parts. Until very recently, though, we knew very little about how this happens. The brain’s waste disposal system has now been identified. We now know that it operates while we sleep at night, just like the waste collectors in most big cities, and the latest research suggests that certain sleeping positions might make it more efficient.
