Aprendizaje basado en proyectos: del profesor pionero a los centros innovadores | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it
Las llamadas metodologías activas están cada vez más presentes en el aprendizaje de muchos alumnos. Aprendizaje cooperativo, flipped classroom (clase invertida), trabajo por centros de interés o aprendizaje basado en proyectos son propuestas metodológicas que los docentes están incorporando a su práctica diaria o que, por lo menos, están interesados en conocer.

Auque no es nuevo; la sociedad actual, los cambios que se viven y las características de las nuevas generaraciones, generan un terreno fértil para que este tipo de metodologías germine! Lo interesante es que se pueden utilizar en modalidad presencial, blended o virtual, y en todas el resultado es extraordinario! ;)

From the article:  "“It’s not just about digital. We are all present, and you’ve got millions of minds in the world. It’s higher education in the connected age, where we can connect with anyone and anything, anytime, for different purposes,” she said. “If we’re smart about how to marry the digital with the best of what we do face-to-face, education will move to a new level for everyone.”  Provocative ideas worth investigating.

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.

I think I'd follow-up on Beth's comments by pointing out that they are comparing "feature phones" and "smartphones" - they are all cell phones.  Semantics aside, it is an important distinction, and one that may be overlooked in the assumption that the student has access to a smartphone because they seem so easy to obtain now - a cultural issue or economic one?

How to Engage the Students Who Need It Most: Gamification

How to Engage the Students Who Need It Most: Gamification | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

"Gamification is using the game mechanics that kids love in video games and infusing them into your classroom. In a good gamified classroom, mechanics like layered leaderboards, badges/achievements, experience points (xp) grading, blended learning, and a class store are common. Far too often, though, I hear gamification being talked about as a magic bullet. It isn’t."

[eBook] The Peeragogy Handbook (Howard Rheingold)

[eBook] The Peeragogy Handbook (Howard Rheingold) | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

Peeragogy is a collection of techniques for collaborative learning and collaborative work. By learning how to “work smart” together, we hope to leave the world in a better state than it was when we arrived. Indeed, humans have always learned from each other. But for a long time – until the advent of the Web and widespread access to digital media – schools have had an effective monopoly on the business of learning. Now, with access to open educational resources and free or inexpensive communication platforms, groups of people can learn together outside as well as inside formal institutions. All of this prompted us to reconsider the meaning of “peer learning.”

The Peeragogy Handbook isn’t a normal book. It is an evolving guide, and it tells a collaboratively written story that you can help write. Using this book, you will develop new norms for the groups you work with — whether online, offline, or both. Every section includes practical ideas you can apply to build and sustain strong and exciting collaborations. When you read the book, you will get to know the authors and will see how we have applied these ideas: in classrooms, in research, in business, and more. You’ll meet Julian, one of the directors of a housing association; Roland, a professional journalist and change-maker; Charlie, a language teacher and writer who works with experimental media for fun and profit; and Charlotte, an indie publisher who wants to become better at what she does by helping others learn how to do it well too — as well as many other contributors from
around the globe.

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, December 15, 2014 3:20 PM

Peeragogy is  about cooperative learning. With collaborative learning, you learn by working on projects together. With cooperative learning, you cultivate a learning community in which each member co-learns with each other member. The peeragogy handbook is a guide for groups of motivated self learners who want to learn a subject cooperatively -- whether or not any of the learners in the group is an expert in the subject they seek to learn.
