Le futur de l'éducation est déjà là : une vision universitaire décalée ou une nouvelle construction du savoir ?

Thierry Curty's comment, December 31, 2013 11:50 PM
Il ne s'agit pas d'une vision universitaire de l'éducation. Elle concerne en fait tous les niveaux scolaires. Déjà aujourd'hui certains élèves atteignent les capacités cognitives de leurs professeurs. Demain, les élèves surclasseront très fortement les maîtres qui ne seront alors plus en mesure de les former. Aujourd'hui, il suffit d'indiquer à un élève ce qu'il doit apprendre pour qu'il l'apprenne, spontanément. Les réseaux sociaux, sur un internet encore très primitif, préfigurent l'organisation du Savoir de demain. L'éducation ne ressemblera alors plus en rien à celle que nous connaissons, si tant est que l'école existe encore dans les 30 prochaines années. La classe s'inverse, devient interactive, naturellement. Ces quelques liens nous démontrent clairement le chemin : http://sco.lt/7zoiVF http://sco.lt/9BY1XV http://sco.lt/78Wq0n http://sco.lt/7cG4pt http://sco.lt/5TDtSr

They jury is still out on what schools of the future will consider core knowledge. What is certain is student-centered and relevant learning. More than a simple trend, personalized learning points to better student-teacher relationships and personal knowledge profiles. Technology can do a lot but dialogue and constructivism are here to stay.

Jeroen Boon's curator insight, January 12, 11:34 AM

Connectivism is a learning theory for the digital age. Learning has changed over the last several decades. The theories of behaviourism, cognitivism, and constructivism provide an effect view of learning in many environments. They fall short, however, when learning moves into informal, networked, technology-enabled arena.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, November 23, 2013 6:32 AM

"For many low income countries around the world, including Tanzania, MOOCs are being hailed as digital salvation, bringing “elite” education to the masses. Right now in Tanzania, a World Bank supported initiative is piloting in partnership with Coursera, a major online education company, to make MOOCs an ingrained part of their higher education efforts in the country by offering free courses at the university level. In conjunction with the Tanzania Commission for Science and Technology (COSTECH), they are supporting the development of SMART Knowledge Hubs starting in the capital, Dar es Salaam. These hubs are intended to assist in forming a support system for the development of education in IT, and a broader set of 'new economy skills' in the country. This young initiative in many ways encapsulates the growing discord about the viability and legitimacy of making MOOCs a key part of education development.

 

 

 

The 18-year-old activist and author of One Size Does Not Fit All: A Student’s Assessment of School,Nikhil Goyal, says a major issue with MOOCs are that they don’t address foundational issues in education. Echoing Lee and Tarimo’s comments he says MOOCs utilize “the same pedagogical approach to learning.” He later adds, “It’s not very much different in college where we have the 5,000 [people] lecture hall. It’s pretty much the same, and that is an issue for me. If you’re just making what’s already bad enough in colleges and school today, I’m not sure you’re really contributing.” "

Mlik Sahib's curator insight, November 20, 2013 8:33 PM

"Higher education is an enormous business in the United States--we spend approximately $400 billion annually on universities, a figure greater than the revenues of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Twitter combined--and the Professor has no trouble rounding up a group of Silicon Valley's most prestigious investors to support his new project. The Professor's peers follow suit: Two fellow Stanford faculty members launch a competing service the following spring, with tens of millions of dollars from an equally impressive group of backers, and Harvard and MIT team up to offer their own platform for online courses. By early 2013, nearly every major institution of higher learning--from the University of Colorado to the University of Copenhagen, Wesleyan to West Virginia University--will be offering a course through one of these platforms.

Suddenly, something that had been unthinkable--that the Internet might put a free, Ivy League–caliber education within reach of the world's poor--seems tantalizingly close. "Imagine," an investor in the Professor's company says, "you can hand a kid in Africa a tablet and give him Harvard on a piece of glass!"

White House science council recommends U.S., accreditors support MOOCs | Inside Higher Ed

White House science council recommends U.S., accreditors support MOOCs | Inside Higher Ed | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

President Obama’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology has a message for the federal government and regional accreditors: Go easy on the MOOCs.

In a report released on Wednesday, the council of engineers and scientists recommends the federal government not interfere with vendors and providers experimenting with massive open online courses and other forms of distance education. That message extends further to accreditors, which are encouraged to waive some of the standards required of institutions seeking approval for traditional programs.

“It would also be premature to impose standards and regulations that might impair the power of competitive market forces to motivate innovation,” the report reads. “If the bar for accreditation is set too high, the infant industry developing MOOC and related technology platforms may struggle to realize its full potential.”

As a third recommendation, the council suggests establishing grant programs to spur research into online education and the effectiveness of MOOCs. To support such an initiative, the data could be made available through a "national exchange mechanism" such as a "center for high-scale machine learning."

The accreditation issue is a delicate one, and many faculty critics have questioned why MOOCs are not subject to more oversight. Many of the initial MOOC providers launched with courses that offered no credit, and so said there was no need for accreditation reviews. Recently, however, MOOCs are being used by students to earn credits and certificates -- although the credit often comes from an institution, not a MOOC provider.

luiy's curator insight, November 24, 2013 5:07 AM

Codecademy is an education company. But not one in the way you might think. We're committed to building the best learning experience inside and out, making Codecademy the best place for our team to learn, teach, and create the online learning experience of the future.

Education is old. The current public school system in the US dates back to the 19th century and wasn't designed to scale the way it has. Lots of companies are working to "disrupt" education by changing the way things work in the classroom and by bringing the classroom online.

 

We're not one of those companies. We are rethinking education from the bottom up. The web has rethought nearly everything - commerce, social networking, healthcare, and more. We are building the education the world needs - the first truly net native education. We take more cues from Facebook and Zynga in creating an engaging educational experience than we do from the classroom.

We do not want to open up universities. We want to open up knowledge. Everyone knows something they can teach someone else and we want to help them do it. Our community has created tens of thousands of courses and taken millions of courses. At this point, more than a billion lines of code have been submitted to Codecademy.

 

Education is broken. Come help us build the education the world deserves.
