Why the Blackboard/Chalkboard Is Still Most Ingenious Teaching Device Ever Invented

Why the Blackboard/Chalkboard Is Still Most Ingenious Teaching Device Ever Invented | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it
Excerpted from Blackboard: A Personal History of the Classroom by Lewis Buzbee. Out now from Graywolf Press. The blackboard is a recent innovation. Erasable slates, a cheap but durable substitute for costly paper and ink, had been in use for centuries. Students could practice reading and writing and math on...

Teachers as Technology Trailblazers: The 2014 Horizon Report Focuses on Pedagogy

Teachers as Technology Trailblazers: The 2014 Horizon Report Focuses on Pedagogy | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

The Horizon Report, an annual paper that focuses on the emerging trends for technology and schools, is often recognized for the ways it analyzes TOOLS.

.However, this year, it's taken a different approach. The insightful group of educators (including my boss, Rob Mancabelli) guiding the report decided that the two fast trends for teaching and learning with technology are strongly focused onPEDAGOGY. .Specifically, the two fast trends are cited in the report as follows:Rethinking the roles of teachersShift to deeper learning approachesIn short, the changes that are happening this year specifically relate to the way we teach and the way we learn.

Creating policies and rethinking teachers' roles is about including teachers in the conversation. Most of what I experienced was download and offloading. This was particularly the case towards the end of my career.

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it
The culmination of my quest for more powerful learning grounded in theory and research came when recently I conducted an experiment in pushing constructionism into the digital age. 

 

Educational theory and practice have begun to appear more frequently in the popular press. Terms such as collaborative learning, [http://oregonstate.edu/instruct/comm440-540/CL2pager.htm ] project-based learning, [ http://www.edutopia.org/project-based-learning] metacognition, [ https://teal.ed.gov/tealGuide/metacognitive ] inquiry-based learning, [ http://www.inquirybasedlearning.org/?page=What_is_IBL ] and so on, might be new to some audiences, but they have a relatively long and well-documented history for many educators. The most widely-known and promising pedagogical approach is constructivism [http://www.edpsycinteractive.org/topics/cognition/construct.html ] grounded on the work of Piaget,  [ http://www.piaget.org/aboutPiaget.html ] Vygotsky, [http://www.simplypsychology.org/vygotsky.html ] and Bruner [http://infed.org/mobi/jerome-bruner-and-the-process-of-education/ ]. Given how it has transformed my own understanding of pedagogy, teaching, and learning, constructionism [ http://www.edpsycinteractive.org/topics/cognition/construct.html ] seems ripe for a similar resurgence — like a phoenix rising from the ashes of Taylorization and standardized testing.

Agron S. Dida's curator insight, March 6, 2:42 AM

From inside the article: "Constructionism is based on two types of construction. First, it asserts that learning is an active process, in which people actively construct knowledge from their experience in the world. People don’t get ideas; they make them. This aspect of construction comes from the constructivist theory of knowledge development by Jean Piaget. To Piaget’s concept, Papert added another type of construction, arguing that people construct new knowledge with particular effectiveness when they are engaged in constructing personally meaningful products."

A great article about Constructionism a hybrid pedagogy - a theory based upon collaborative, project-based and student ownership of learning resulting in a learning that is largely 'constructed' by the learner themselves. 

Paul Oliveri's curator insight, April 6, 1:23 AM

Constructionism, constructivism, learner centred, authentic, real world, active process, problem based, integration of technology in an authentic way and most importantly transformative.

 

With 63 scoopit interactions this article obviously resonates with the broader education community.

 

How do I use these principles to facilitate someone becoming a Paramedic via the distance mode of learning. I use technology to create learner centred, authentic and problem based activities to facilitate their learning.


This may be having the student develop a video of their interactions with simulated patients, participate in lecturer facilitated collaborative exercises (synchronous and asynchronous) or collaborating in groups with their peers in both synchronous and asynchronous activities.


All of the interactions were previously done in a live environment. Today technology is just the vessel for which these interactions occur.

 

Me I’m still just one of many resources available to them.
