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!

12 Things You Were Not Taught in School About Creative Thinking | Wake Up World | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it
Creativity is paradoxical. To create, a person must have knowledge but forget the knowledge, must see unexpected connections in things but not have a mental disorder, must work hard but spend time doing nothing as information incubates, must create many ideas yet most of them are useless, must look at the same thing as everyone else, yet see something different, must desire success but embrace failure, must be persistent but not stubborn, and must listen to experts but know how to disregard them.

Impacts of MOOCs on Higher Education | Higher Ed Beta @insidehighered

Impacts of MOOCs on Higher Education | Higher Ed Beta @insidehighered | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it

An international group of higher education institutions—including UT Arlington, Stanford University, Hong Kong University and Davidson College—convened by learning researcher and theorist George Siemens gathered last week to explore the impacts of MOOCs on higher education (full list of participating institutions below).

 

The takeaway? Higher education is going digital, responding to the architecture of knowledge in a digital age, and MOOCs, while heavily criticized, have proven a much-needed catalyst for the development of progressive programs that respond to the changing world.

MOOCs: Know your enemy

MOOCs: Know your enemy | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it

The extent to which MOOCs or their offspring will make the classroom obsolete may depend in part on how clever such courses become in the future. For some, adaptive teaching on a mass scale is the Holy Grail of distance education, a scenario in which nifty programming and big data allow courses to adjust to students’ abilities and online behaviour. MOOC platforms’ data-mining is not yet up to the task, warn Ms Holland and Ms Tirthali, as common standards are lacking and privacy laws are an obstacle. The amounts of data that will be needed are also daunting. But if the technology can be made to work, MOOCs could be superseded one day by what some are calling “personalised open online courses”. To misquote the New York Times, might we soon be having a “year of the POOC”?

Other academics are weighing in on the MOOC debate. In a survey, Fiona Hollands and Devayani Tirthali of Columbia University asked staff at 83 institutions (including public and private universities, community colleges and online-learning platforms) for their views on MOOCs. Published in May, the report shows a mix of opinion on where online learning is headed. While 42% of respondents saw MOOCs as a means of increasing access to education, only 25% considered them useful for branding (however, the percentages, at 65% and 41% respectively, were much higher for respondents who actually used MOOCs)...

The strengths and weaknesses of MOOCs: Part I

The strengths and weaknesses of MOOCs: Part I | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it
How many times has an author cried: ‘Oh, God, I wish I’d never started on this!’? Well, I wanted to have a short section on MOOCs within a chapter on design models for teaching and learning in my online textbook, ‘Teaching in a Digital Age‘ and it is probably poetic justice that the section on MOOCs is now ballooning into a monster of its own.

Although I don’t want to inflate the importance of MOOCs, I fear I’m probably going to have to devote a whole chapter to the topic. (Well, I do have to agree that the topic is relevant to teaching in a digital age.) However, whether MOOCs get their own chapter may well depend on how you, my readers, react to what I’m writing, which I’m putting into this blog via a series of posts.

I’ve already had two posts, one on the key design features of MOOCs in general, and another on the differences between cMOOCs and xMOOCs that has already generated quite a lot of heated comments. Here I’m posting the first part of my discussion on the strengths and weaknesses of MOOCs. I’ll do another couple of posts to wrap it up (I desperately hope).

Could We Be Doing Better with Our Assignments?

Could We Be Doing Better with Our Assignments? | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it
Assignments are a terribly important part of the teaching and learning equation. They aren’t just random activities that faculty ask students to complete for points and grades; they are the vehicles through which students learn course content. By studying for exams and engaging with content as they write their papers, students deepen their understanding of key concepts and build learning connections. In short, assignments represent learning experiences for students and, as Dee Fink reminds us, we want those learning experiences to be “significant.” Is that how you’d describe your most often-used assignments? Are they the only ways students could encounter and explore course content? Are they still the best ways?

The trend isn't new (I actually gave a talk last year at LeWeb about this) but while it's now more and more obvious that brands should become media, it's interesting to see how they're doing it. 


As Mathew Ingram explains, Mozilla invested: they set up an editorial team and recruited a former editor at AOL and CNN. They also give a prominent place to curated content through a right column widget called "From around the Web" which is not unlike the New York Times' recent "watching" section. Following the success of the new media rockstars such as the Huffington Post, BuzzFeed, Business Insider or Upworthy, it's good to see innovative brands embrace the idea of becoming media - in the 21st century meaning of the word which is leveraging a mix of creation and curation.

Use the Pomodoro Method to Engage Your Students | Edudemic

Use the Pomodoro Method to Engage Your Students | Edudemic | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it
According to a study conducted in the chemistry department of the Catholic University done by Diane M. Bunce, Elizabeth A. Flens, and Kelly Y. Neiles in Washington D.C., it was found that while the original belief of the 10-15 minute attention span may be true, it was not the whole truth. Here is the rest of the story.

It is true that the first lapse of attention (or first break in attention) occurred at approximately the 10-18 minute mark, but after this initial break, the later attention lapses occurred more and more frequently. By the end of class, attention breaks were cycling every 3-4 minutes. In other words, in the last parts of class, students are only paying attention for 3-4 minutes at a time!

So what does this mean for you?

This means that introducing different elements into the routine may benefit both you and your students by helping them pay more attention so that you can be a more effective teacher. This is where the pomodoro method comes in.

Rest your mind the right way to strengthen and consolidate memory, and boost learning - Futurity

Rest your mind the right way to strengthen and consolidate memory, and boost learning - Futurity | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it

Posted by Marc Airhart-Texas on October 21, 2014

 

"Scientists have previously found that resting the mind, such as daydreaming, helps strengthen memories of events and retention of information.

 

"Now, research shows that the right kind of mental rest, which strengthens and consolidates memories from recent learning, may boost later learning.

 

"At the University of Texas at Austin, graduate student research Margaret Schlichting and associate professor of psychology and neuroscience Alison Preston gave participants in the study two learning tasks in which participants were asked to memorize different series of associated photo pairs.

 

"Between the tasks, participants rested and could think about anything they chose, but brain scans found that the ones who used that time to reflect on what they had learned earlier in the day fared better on tests pertaining to what they learned later, especially where small threads of information between the two tasks overlapped.

 

"Participants seemed to be making connections that helped them absorb information later on, even if it was only loosely related to something they learned before.

 

“'We’ve shown for the first time that how the brain processes information during rest can improve future learning,' says Preston. 'We think replaying memories during rest makes those earlier memories stronger, not just impacting the original content, but impacting the memories to come.'"

The first thing you want to start thinking of when you start your graduate studies is to find a suitable citation manager to help you organize and store your references. This is something that will save you a lot of time and effort down the road. In this post, I want to share with my fellow student researchers some of the top citation managers out there. Most of universities worldwide support one of them. Check out your university library and see which of the citation managers below it supports. That will make it easy for you to organize and store the references you come across in your university library.

ID and Other Reflections: Social Learning is Voluntary; Collaboration Platforms are Enablers | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it
FAUXIAL LEARNING is about forcing people to use social media in courses – or even in the workplace – and then confusing compliance with engagement (and even worse) learning.

This totally hits the nail on the head. As an Instructional Designer and L&D Consultant, I am often asked questions like:

1.What social collaboration platform should we use?
2.How do we get people to collaborate?
3.Oh, but they don't want to share. How do we make them share their learning?

My first reaction is to say: "You can't make people share or get anyone to collaborate." Then, I take a deep breath and start a dialogue.

Astrocytic mechanism that repairs brain after stroke discovered.

Astrocytic mechanism that repairs brain after stroke discovered. | Learning & Mind & Brain | Scoop.it
A previously unknown mechanism through which the brain produces new nerve cells after a stroke has been discovered at Lund University and Karolinska Institutet in Sweden. The findings have been published in the journal SCIENCE.

A stroke is caused by a blood clot blocking a blood vessel in the brain, which leads to an interruption of blood flow and therefore a shortage of oxygen. Many nerve cells die, resulting in motor, sensory and cognitive problems.

The researchers have shown that following an induced stroke in mice, support cells, so-called astrocytes, start to form nerve cells in the injured part of the brain. Using genetic methods to map the fate of the cells, the scientists could demonstrate that astrocytes in this area formed immature nerve cells, which then developed into mature nerve cells.
