Use the Triple E framework to determine if you are using technology to engage, enhance and extend learning in the classroom.

James J. Goldsmith's insight:

From the article:  "I don’t think many educators would argue that technology is  a tool to help students reach learning goals, but how do we measure that? After  years of watching teachers do the same thing that I had done, I realized that  educators needed a practical framework for integrating a technology tool into  their lessons."  Introduces the "Triple E Framework" to measure the effectiveness of technology applications in learning.

I often get asked questions like these: Does peer learning really work? Don’t we need experts to learn from? Can the (proverbially) blind really lead the blind? Those are good questions and I will get back to them in a second.

James J. Goldsmith's insight:

Addressed the important question:  "Could peer learning be the (only) answer to scale meaningful learning and education for a growing global population?"

Illustrative Chart on Project Based Learning Vs Problem Based Learning | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Contemporary Learning Design | Scoop.it

Project based learning and problem based learning are two didactic approaches to learning that are often used interchangeably to refer to the same thing: engaging students in authentic learning activities. This truism does not always hold true. In a learning task that is problem based, the focus is on finding solutions to the  problem posed  through applying learned strategies and in so doing the process of arriving at the solution is, in and of itself, an integral part of the overall learning taking place . Whether a learning activity is authentic or not does not really matter from a problem based learning perspective because often times 'fictitious scenarios' are purposefully designed to provide learners with a contrived environment to work on their ill-structured problems.

Nice infographic of how the brain works in the context of learning. New technology, new understanding of brain science and psychology can and must lend themselves to the creation of a critical pedagogy which leaves no child left behind.

35 Psychological Tricks To Help You Learn Better - InformED | Contemporary Learning Design | Scoop.it

Have you ever considered letting your students listen to hardcore punk while they take their mid-term exam? Decided to do away with Power Point presentations during your lectures? Urged your students to memorize more in order to remember more? If the answer is no, you may want to rethink your notions of psychology and its place in the learning environment.

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning?

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning? | Contemporary Learning Design | Scoop.it

'Learning thrives on error'

"Among all the influences that can make a profound difference in student learning is how we think about our role!  So, start with looking inward and ask about the mind frames you have as an educator. 

It is through these mind frames that we make decisions in the classroom and school, and it is argued that educators highly imbued with these mind frames are among the high impact educators."

Teachers need to recast themselves as learners alongside students. The days of the expert are behind us despite the advent of TED talks and other media where we still seem to think the sage on the stage is the way to impart knowledge, wisdom, and truth. There are moments for that, but learning is very relational, contingent, contextual, and personal.

I like the approach of "walking in their shoes" to describe how educators effect an interest in learning.
