IncitED's curator insight, July 17, 2013 2:09 PM

Educators aren't the "sage on the stage" anymore because information is readily accessible. Now teaching is about helping students make sense of all the info. 

Marie Arndt's comment, July 19, 2013 5:43 AM
The role of the teacher has changed in many ways, not just regarding teaching, but the importance they have in students' lives. Technology, as Susan rightly points out, quality of teaching cannot be disguised by technology. We must help students to be selective in the barrage of 'information' they are exposed to, which is not always that but biased tripe or propaganda.
Jeroen Bottema's curator insight, August 6, 2013 8:04 AM

Mooi plaatje, geeft de student inzicht in de verschillende rollen van de leraar. Meer dan alleen 'sage on the stage'. Verder onderschrijf ik de opmerking van Susan Bainbridge.

How Much Sleep is Just Right for Cognitive Function?

How Much Sleep is Just Right for Cognitive Function? | Contemporary Learning Design | Scoop.it
We all know about the importance of sleep. But what's the difference between four, six and eight hours of sleep?
Jim Goldsmith's insight:

Per the video, I haven’t been getting enough sleep for optimum brain functioning.  I guess this explains why I have trouble ordering my usual “grande, half-whole milk, one quarter 1%, one quarter non-fat, extra hot, split quad shots (and I mean 1 1/2 shots decaf, 2 1/2 shots regular), no foam latte, with whip, 2 packets of splenda, 2 sugars in the raw, a dash of vanilla syrup complimented with select sprinkles of cinnamon” at Starbucks, lately.

Jim Goldsmith's insight:

A non-linear approach to instructional design has been widely adopted by IDs, often with very positive results.  However, as the author cautions, it should not be used as a “one-size-fits-all” approach.  To learn more about the appropriate uses of non-linear instruction, read this well-written, thoughtful article.

Training Millennials in the Workplace? Teach Them the Same Way You Reach Them

Training Millennials in the Workplace? Teach Them the Same Way You Reach Them | Contemporary Learning Design | Scoop.it
Understanding changes and preferences in how your audience consumes information is the foundation of good advertising. Yet when it comes to training, most agencies still are adhering to a model that is as outdated as a media plan comprised totally of 30-second spots on three networks.
Jim Goldsmith's insight:

From the article: “According to a 2012 study commissioned by Time Inc., millennials switch media types 27 times every nonworking hour. Few things hold their focus for long, so they prefer information and communication in small chunks. They are comfortable with jumping around in the information and communication realms and are nonlinear learners.”  The logical follow-up question: how many current instructional design models take this into account?  Thought-provoking.

What Makes an ‘Extreme Learner’?

What Makes an ‘Extreme Learner’? | Contemporary Learning Design | Scoop.it

From Extreme Learner Marc Roth:  “When I only had pennies to my name, I turned everything I had into education instead of comforts or niceties.” An interesting and inspiring article.

The Future of On-Campus Higher Education? | StratEDgy @insidehighered

The Future of On-Campus Higher Education? | StratEDgy @insidehighered | Contemporary Learning Design | Scoop.it
Jim Goldsmith's insight:

The article shares four themes for how “a Stanford education might be different in 2025:”

1)      Education will be fully envisaged as a lifelong journey, rather than a one-shot, four-year stint

2)      The education will focus more on skill acquisition than disciplinary topics and therefore the university will be organized around competency hubs, rather than academic fields

3)      The education model will move from an industrial revolution-style, one-size-fits-few freshman/sophomore/junior/senior classification to a personal-paced learning program over a student’s six years of higher education

4)      The school will move away from having students declare a major, toward having them declare a purpose – and student learning will be built around this purpose. Purpose learning will require the university to set

 

Details can be found in the article.  What do you think about these predictions?

Jim Goldsmith's insight:

From the article [quoting Peter Hirst, MIT]:  “What we’re seeing most recently, and what I’m very excited about, is going from that linear model to a much more non-linear idea. The digital learning experience is becoming really a collection of inter-related learning nuggets, that you might take very different paths through, depending who you are and what your needs are, and how you learn most effectively. So that’s where I’m seeing some interesting changes happening.”  Should be of interest to anyone following trends and developments in education.
