O conducionismo define  coração das pedagogias, incluindo o construtivismo social, que já se diferencia do comportalmentalismo e do cognitivismo por considerar a interação social como elemento da aprendizagem, que é ativa, mas não é interativa.

5 Instructional Design tips to enhance Metacognition in eLearning

5 Instructional Design tips to enhance Metacognition in eLearning | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

An empowered learner is a successful learner. Not only do they have the confidence they need to solve problems autonomously, but they are active participants who are motivated and inspired to learn. One of the most effective ways to empower your online learners is to incorporate metacognition into your eLearning strategy. In this article, I’ll share 5 tips on how to enhance metacognition in eLearning.


Metacognition involves not just having knowledge and being able to cognitively process information, but being able to control these mental processes. This typically involves modification, monitoring, and organization of the information in order to apply it in real world settings. Metacognition also focuses on analyzing a challenge or task to determine which problem solving approach would be the most effective.


One of the most significant advantages of using metacognition in eLearning is that it encourages learners to become more independent and empowered. They must identify their strengths and weaknesses, and fine tune their study, organization, problem-solving, and communication skills. In this article, I’ll delve into the categories of metacognition, its best practices, and I’ll share 5 tips that will help you use metacognition in eLearning.

The changing value of knowledge and openness in education (Cristobal Cobo)

"The notion of openness in education is usually associated just with resources - whether content or technologies - and initiatives in tis field have often focused too narrowly on the mere generation of those resources, paying little attention to the "social life" of materials and relevant cultural practices.

Open Educational Resources (OER) and, most recently, the so-called Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), among other open education initiatives, seem to be reshaping the value of content in Higher Education (HE).

However, it is worth reflecting on the extent to which offering open content may be considered disruptive these days. In this presentation I will argue that we need to go beyond the content-centered focus of OER and look at the contexts of learning, both inside and outside of formal education. That means to better articulate at least three key dimensions: content, containers (platforms,technologies), and context."

Nearly 60% of Teens Use Their Own Mobile Devices in School for Learning

Nearly 60% of Teens Use Their Own Mobile Devices in School for Learning | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

 

This year’s report, Digital Learning 24/7: Understanding Technology – Enhanced Learning in the Lives of Today’s Students, provides landmark findings on the efficacy and value associated with popular digital learning initiatives: blended learning, online learning, school-assigned mobile devices and STEM learning.  The views, values and experiences of students taking part in these digital learning initiatives are compared with students in more traditional classroom-based education.
“We hope by highlighting the views and values of today’s students, especially those students who are living a digital learning experience, this year’s report stimulates new discussions around the effective use of digital tools, resources and content to support student learning,” said Julie Evans CEO of Project Tomorrow.

Texting In Class May Distract Students, But It Could Also Help Them Learn

Texting In Class May Distract Students, But It Could Also Help Them Learn | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it
Gone are the days when kids would get in trouble for passing notes in class. Today’s youngsters are much more sophisticated, technologically speaking, than those who grew up in the days of flip phones and CD players — let alone those whose only access to a phone growing up was a spin-dial one. This means there’s a lot more texting, tweeting, and Facebooking on smartphones in your average high school or college classroom than ever before.

Does this also mean that kids today are way more distracted by the bombardment of information reaching them via their tablets and iPhones? A new study out of the National Communication Association wanted to find out whether increased smartphone and social media use in class impacted student learning — and what they found was that it had both negative and positive effects.

In the study, researchers analyzed kids who were using phones in class to respond to text messages — both relevant and irrelevant to the class material. They measured the type of messages and the frequency of them, and found that students who were texting about the material actually scored higher on multiple choice tests about the subject than those who were texting about non-class related things.

Eric Moss's curator insight, June 29, 11:02 AM

It is time to make decisions on what we want to do for kids who are going to be on their social media devices during class time. After looking at this insightful article, I agree that being able to discuss class work with other students while class is in session is only going to help. Interestingly, the study showed that discussing materials through social media lead to greater test scores. I think that a big problem is that kids are trying to hide their devices while in class, and this is the part that is distracting them. Maybe if we implemented new technology, which allowed for students to have a built in I pad in his or her desk, allowing group chats, and online public discussions to take place, this would be beneficial. Staying on topic, posting to friends and family about what you are learning is only going to lead to a better understanding of the topic. Changing what many might view as a negative action, to a positive idea might be key when thinking about the future of our education system, and all of the social media available. Higher grades will be the reward, while lower grades will be the consequence for kids who reject using this new feature the proper way.

JoanHughes's curator insight, June 30, 5:58 AM

This article gives food for thought.  Are mobile phones being used to engage learners or do teachers see it as a distraction?

In 1980, Dr. Gardner said “The potential utility of computers in the process of matching individuals to modes of instruction is substantial.” Though Gardner is likely incorrect regarding individuals’ learning styles, he was notably ahead of his time in predicting the power of eLearning. Today, more and more courses are moving online; not only do universities and community colleges increasingly provide all-online degree programs to busy workers looking to improve, but high schools and lower education levels are moving to the Web. Thus, it is becoming ever-more essential for instructional designers to thoroughly understand where, why, and how students learn.

"If students were doing awesome things with an iPad, what would that look like? Here's another way of putting it: How does an iPad align with a vision of meaningful and purposeful learning?

 

Bereft of examples and inspiration, many educators struggle to conceive of iPad integration beyond mere substitution for whatever came before. Educators need guidance on how to leverage iPads as hubs of innovation that nurture the learning skills, competencies, and habits of mind that help students develop skills for today's world.

 

With that in mind, here's a look at two teachers and their iPad-infused classrooms."

Questions to ask:

How will learning be different?

How will students improve as learners? As scholars? As citizens?

What will they be able to do 3 or 4 years after the ipad adoption that they can’t do now?

If ipads are the answer, what was the question?

What does awesome look like?

How does an ipad align with a vision of  meaningful and purposeful learning?
