The curation comment is interesting... I think it's fantastic that students are able to gain these skills without the assistance of a teacher, but ultimately if they veer off the path or have been misguided, they will always need a facilitator to not only show students the tools but also give them some best practice ideas.

This describes the 12 principles of mobile learning.  It describes not only how to use technology in classes but also the reasoning behind using it.

David Donat's curator insight, July 24, 2013 3:26 PM

Una bona presentació de la "Flipped Classroom": no és un mètode pedagògic, sinó una manera més d'enfocar l'aprenentatge, que pot anar bé en algunes ocasions i que en d'altres no tant. Es pot plantejar com un recurs més, combinable amb qualsevol altre.

La meva opinió és que els alumnes són tan diversos que no hi ha cap metodologia "ideal". Cadascun necessitarà eines i processos diferents i per tant, quantes més dinàmiques i metodologies s'utilitzin (i més flexibles siguin) millor s'atendrà a cadascun d'ells. No cal dir que amb ratios de més de 30 adolescents per aula tampoc es poden fer miracles.

Prisoners of English by George Haynal - The Globalist

Prisoners of English by George Haynal - The Globalist | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

In a globalized world where English is the dominant language of commerce and diplomacy, it's tempting for native English speakers to take the easy route. But not learning other languages comes at a great cost, explains George Haynal. Fluency in other languages opens a critical window into other cultures and mindsets that would otherwise remain closed.

Connectivism: Learning Theory for the Future?

Connectivism: Learning Theory for the Future? | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Connectivism: The pipe is more important than the content within the pipe. Our ability to learn what we need for tomorrow is more important than what we know today.

Anne Whaits's curator insight, May 1, 2013 10:44 PM

It is my view that one of the most significant statements made by George Siemens is this one: "As knowledge continues to grow and evolve, access to what is needed is more important than what the learner currently possesses." 

 

The role of teaching (and learning) then needs to shift in several ways to support this. How do we support students in selecting, discerning, organising this information and critically reflecting on it? How do we support students in creating new ways of evidencing their learning? How do we encourage students to create content themselves that adds to this growing and evolving abundance of information and knowledge generation?

 

"The Network is the Learning"....another of George Siemens' statements that resonates so well with me.

Carlos Castaño's comment, May 10, 2013 10:08 AM
Quizá no sea aún una teoría del aprendizaje en sentido estricto del término, pero su influencia es innegable. Es, sin duda, un intento de articular una teoría del aprendizaje que entiende la Red. Y ese es el mejor comienzo
Carlos Lizarraga Celaya's curator insight, May 10, 2013 12:46 PM

Connectivism is the integration of principles explored by chaos, network, and complexity and self-organization theories.

In a knowledge economy, the flow of information is the equivalent of the oil pipe in an industrial economy…

The pipe is more important than the content within the pipe. Our ability to learn what we need for tomorrow is more important than what we know today. A real challenge for any learning theory is to actuate known knowledge at the point of application. When knowledge, however, is needed, but not known, the ability to plug into sources to meet the requirements becomes a vital skill. As knowledge continues to grow and evolve, access to what is needed is more important than what the learner currently possesses.

The Web is entering a new phase of evolution. There has been much debate recently about what to call this new phase. Some would prefer to not name it all, while others suggest continuing to call it “Web 2.0”. However, this new phase of evolution has quite a different focus from what Web 2.0 has come to mean.

Une synthèse du Web 3.0 :

"Le Web 3.0 sera plus connecté, ouvert et intelligent, avec des technologies du Web sémantique, des bases de données distribuées, du traitement du langage naturel, des systèmes apprenants et raisonnants et des agents autonomes."

Il manque cependant pour être complet l'Internet des Objets et son corrolaire, le web symbiotique.
