Andreas Kuswara's curator insight, July 18, 2013 1:05 AM

"The implications are massive," says Steve. Like many futurists and learning theoreticians he believes hierarchies are dying. “We have exhausted and moved on from taxonomies. The bottom-up folksonomy has been explored, and we are now entering the rhizonomy, the un-organization (of which MOOCs are an example), chaotic, non-rule-based learning that happens regardless of organization.”


an interesting read indeed.

Of course these are changes or development or progresses that we are facing in education and technology in general, but IMHO they don't necessarily correlate, although one can influence the other.

e.g. the development of voice/gesture interfaces, is not driven by, nor drive the take up of participatory, social, community learning mode. They just happen to coincide with one another. I don't even think gesture interface can promote/encourage participatory/social/community learning mode. The use of keyboard can be sufficient to allow all of that. Of course there is some specific scenario, if “participatory” is understood as being immersive, and 3D holographic come into the picture, then we probably can't interact efficiently if we still use keyboard and mouse, thus gesture interface is needed. But the existence of such specific cases can’t justify generalization of the correlation.

I’m not sure about machine generated content, if it’s the automated curation that another human prepared (e.g. we subscribed to feed and classify them, or some algorithm somewhere silently look at what we read, and based on that pull what it thinks relevant to us and feed us), I would not label any of those as “machine generated”, we can say “machine curated” if we wish. The role of the machine simply as a matchmaker between a consumer (human) with the product (produced by other human), the machine enabled the consumption processes in the scale that is beyond our imagination before, but not actually generate it. there could be more spectacular examples of machine automating some or all processes to serve information to our plates.

So I agree with each of the trends independently, but not sure about putting them together as if they have correlation; however, there is a possibility (of course) to take advantage of the new development in technology and apply it in both old and new approach to learning then come up with a niche interesting innovation. But I think that the old pedagogies won't be going anywhere, although it can mutate into lots of niche variations.

Impact to teacher education: If we jump both feet to the “new pedagogy” and neglect to properly get our heads around the old as much as the new, we might disadvantage our students, as we know that "no one size fits all", not even the so called new pedagogies. IMHO pedagogy is interesting, where we can combine the ancient with the recent.

New pedagogies are needed to align with the reality that our future visions are rapidly becoming our present” asserts Steve. “Our old ways of thinking will only make the brokenness of education and learning worse. We have to change, and change fast.”

How Evernote Is Revolutionzing My Classroom - Edudemic

How Evernote Is Revolutionzing My Classroom - Edudemic | Education and Cultural Change |
The great Evernote experiment is underway in the UK. Adam Webster details how he went all-digital with the help of iPads and Evernote.
Pierre Levy's insight:

Evernote would do two of the key things I really needed – it allows my students to curate their work (which can be produced in a multitude of mediums) in an orderly, logical fashion, and, perhaps most exciting, it allowed me to observe their work as they created it, through shared notebooks. In addition to this, we have utilized other parts of the Evernote family by using Skitch and Penultimate which automatically sync drawings and handwritten notes amongst other things) straight to your main Evernote folders.

A UK teacher's experiment with a class of 22 schoolchildren using iPads and Evernote: "They have annotated poems online, created a glossary of poetic terms, a video poem of one of Hughes’ poems, an eBook of their favorite poems which they have designed and illustrated, as well as curating notes on how to begin the process of analysing poetry and examples of them having a go at the very challenging task."

Qu'en pensez-vous ? Quelqu'un se sent pour le traduire en français ?!

Deborah Arnold's comment, April 15, 2013 7:45 AM
Très bonne idée. Ok pour vous évaluer la-dessus, si vous l'accompagnez d'éléments de réflexion et d'analyse.
