Holistic approaches for Learning with Technology

Holistic approaches for Learning with Technology | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Informational technology needs to be holistically integrated into our learning environments.

The integration of information technology into our unique learning environments can be greatly enhanced if we apply constructivist approaches. Such approaches could include, but are not limited to discovery learning, inquiry based learning, play-based learning and making. But they also include listening, reflecting, and taking the time to process. Essentially, we want our learners to become great thinkers. We want learners to take an active role in the learning process and move away from the passive regurgitation of information being passed from a teacher to a student. Effective infusion of information technology into our learning environments is an excellent way to achieve this.

In our world, information technology is not just a means to an end. It more about the information and how we use it that is the most important. How to find it, how to process it, how to use it, and how to build on it. The technology we use facilitates and re-shapes this use of information in many new ways. For instance, no longer are we following learning in a linear fashion, say, based on a textbook. Rather, we are working in flexible frameworks where learners can focus on big ideas, but follow their learning along multiple paths happening all at once in the learning environment.

Carlos Rodrigues Cadre's curator insight, August 1, 5:12 PM
Tecnologia informacional precisa ser holisticamente integrado em nossos ambientes de aprendizagem.
A integração da tecnologia da informação em nossos ambientes de aprendizagem únicos pode ser muito maior se aplicar abordagens construtivistas. Tais abordagens podem incluir, mas não estão limitados a aprendizagem pela descoberta, a aprendizagem baseada na investigação, aprendizagem baseada em jogo e tomada. Mas eles também incluem ouvir, refletir, e tomando o tempo para processar. Essencialmente, queremos que nossos alunos para se tornarem grandes pensadores. Queremos que os alunos a ter um papel activo no processo de aprendizagem e se afastar da regurgitação passiva da informação que está sendo passada de um professor para um aluno. Infusão eficaz da tecnologia da informação em nossos ambientes de aprendizagem é uma excelente maneira de conseguir isso. Em nosso mundo, tecnologia da informação não é apenas um meio para um fim. É mais sobre a informação e como podemos usá-lo que é o mais importante. Como encontrá-la, como processá-lo, como usá-lo, e como construir sobre ele. A tecnologia que usamos facilita e re-formas esse uso da informação em muitas novas formas. Por exemplo, não são mais que seguir a aprendizagem de uma forma linear, digamos, baseado em um livro de texto. Em vez disso, estamos a trabalhar em estruturas flexíveis, onde os alunos podem se concentrar em grandes idéias, mas seguem a sua aprendizagem ao longo de vários caminhos acontecendo tudo de uma vez no ambiente de aprendizagem.

"Did you feel totally lost the last time you went to a running store to shop for a good pair of shoes? The sales people were probably helpful and well-intentioned, but you might have felt they were speaking a different language with all sorts of technical shoe lingo. No wonder. There are so many shoe terms and technological fancy-talk in the running world that it might as well be a different language. Don’t despair. We’re here to help you decipher the shoe language."

10 Truths About Building School Teams

10 Truths About Building School Teams | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
1. Teams that work in or with schools exist in order to serve the social, emotional, and academic needs of children.
We might have all kinds of things that we do, we may also care for the adults in the mix, but we exist to serve children.

2. Learning is the primary work of all teams.
Whether you're in a leadership team, a data team, or a curriculum design team, your work is to learn. The only way we'll make a dent in the mountain of challenges that we face in schools is if we, the educators, never stop learning.
