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 » !

Theory of Knowledge, Social Media and Connected Learning in High School - DML Central

Theory of Knowledge, Social Media and Connected Learning in High School - DML Central | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it
I’m an advocate of cultivating and tuning the network of people I follow on Twitter, a practice that includes my willingness to respond to those I didn’t previously know who solicit my attention by directing an @reply to my Twitter handle. Far more often than not, the call to my attention by a stranger leads me to enrich my personal learning network. It’s also one way I meet people to videoblog about here on dmlcentral.

Lifelong Learning and the Maker Movement | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it
Despite the impressive potential of the maker movement and the aspect of fun learning by making, still, there remain some challenges in mainstreaming the maker movement in education. First of all, it should not be misunderstood that learners should be given to build things without proper acquisition of fundamental skills, such as basic literacy and numeracy,

Can the Maker Movement Infiltrate Mainstream Classrooms? - Mind/Shift

Can the Maker Movement Infiltrate Mainstream Classrooms? - Mind/Shift | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it


“Most of the people that I know who got into science and technology benefited from a set of informal experiences before they had much formal training,” said Dale Dougherty, editor of Make Magazine and founder of Maker Faire on KQED’s Forum program. “And I mean, like building rockets in the backyard, tinkering, playing with things. And that created the interest and motivation to pursue science.”

That spirit of play and discovery of knowledge is missing from much of formal education, Dougherty said. Students not only have no experience with making or the tools needed to build things, they’re often at a tactile deficit. “Schools haven’t changed, but the students have,” Dougherty said. “They don’t come with these experiences.”

El "Maker Movement" debe ser un elemento clave en el desarrollo de proyectos multidisciplinares en las universidades. No es posible concebir soluciones innovadoras desde la perspectiva de una sola disciplina. Aún cuando hay avances importantes en algunas universidades, "una gaviota no hace verano".

David Baker's curator insight, March 21, 2016 12:46 PM
This supports the movement I am seeing in our schools as they strive to promote rich learning, STEM, Design Thinking, and innovation. I see this thread from preschool through high school.
