The Evolving Role of the Teacher

The Evolving Role of the Teacher | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

More teachers today are providing opportunities for their students to connect and learn in powerful ways. There is an increasing focus on collaboration, competency-based learning, use of open resources, project-based learning, and learning environments are shifting to support these new opportunities. These shifts are accelerated by access to technology that has transformed how we learn and interact with one another.

Apprendre à apprendre, quelle place pour le numérique ? - Par Michèle Drechsler

Apprendre à apprendre, quelle place pour le numérique ? - Par Michèle Drechsler | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it
Avec le numérique, ne peut-on pas générer ces  « révolutions minuscules » ou ces « petits moments magiques », qui bousculent les certitudes et qui « boostent » la réflexion des élèves comme le disait si bien Jean Pierre Astolfi, et qui permettent aussi une réflexion des enseignants sur les différentes façons d’apprendre? Ces moments de manipulation via les interfaces numérique et en liaison avec l’apprenant directement concerné, ne sont-ils pas une façon de faire vivre concrètement dans l’action, l’expérience de ce qu’un savoir en construction produit comme surprise et inspiration ? Nous pouvons repenser ici à ce que Louis Legrand appelait une « pédagogie de l’étonnement » et Georges Snyders « la joie à l’école » !

Making MOOCs Teacher-Centered, Competency-Based and Personalized

Making MOOCs Teacher-Centered, Competency-Based and Personalized | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

"Do you sometimes feel like you are out of strategies for a particular student or several students in your class even though you have tried many different instructional approaches? You are not alone. All students learn differently – and teachers work hard to meet the various needs in their classrooms. However, when I was a teacher, I didn’t feel like I was prepared to meet all of my students’ needs, nor did I feel like professional learning experiences were personalized to what I needed or how I learned most effectively. The Learning Differences MOOC for Educators addresses this gap by providing educators with rich information about students’ learning differences, while also using an online platform designed to personalize learning for educators to meet their learning needs."

This article goes under the category of social. This article is about how students at a school are using Facebook to display their hate against teachers. I think that that is just cruel And I don't think that students should be doing that. It can effect the teachers a lot and the students probably don't know though.

eLearning is now created by people with no eLearning background

eLearning is now created by people with no eLearning background | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it
In July 2013 we started developing a new web-based authoring tool for e-Learning. One of our focus points was to make it so easy that everybody could use it and would be able to create and share e-learning courses, quizzes and exams. We were hoping to attract a new audience with this, people who do not have an instructional design background like our ‘old’ audience has. I have to say we are positively surprised by the results. Easygenerator’s e-Learning software, is now live for one year and we have 7.500 users in 154 countries. But most surprising for us is that 5000 of them do not have an e-Learning background at all. They are teachers, trainers, subject matter experts, HR-employees and they are creating courses and quizzes with our tool. I believe it is an important generic trend in e-Learning and in this post I will share our experience and lessons learned from the past 12 months.

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.

Andreas Kuswara's comment, July 18, 2013 1:34 AM
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.
Ruth Obadia's curator insight, August 14, 2013 3:51 PM

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.”
