The future of higher education is a responsive classroom - eCampus News

The future of higher education is a responsive classroom - eCampus News | Culture: Education, Arts | Scoop.it

When it comes to continuing education and skills-based learning, one of the biggest challenges that universities face is ensuring quality and uniformity of results.

Students trust universities to deliver on the promise that every topic taught is relevant, marketable, and will lead to clear returns on their investments (ROIs). But how do universities respond to changing market demands and variable classroom profiles, while also administering to the needs of thousands of students each year? How can institutions create a responsive classroom?

The Planetary Archives / San Francisco, California's curator insight, November 26, 10:24 AM
Well, it's certainly better than the factories most children are forced to endure. But I still question the whole idea of seperating children from their families at a young age, and forcing them to engage in activities they probably don''t enjoy. I'm thinking the Average Mom could "school" her children and 5 or 10 of their friends and cousins over the course of the day; complete with healthy meals and snacks and PLENTY of exercise. The mass education system is not working out so well; horribly inefficient (travel to and from school alone uses a gazillion gallons of oil and wastes valuable time) and expensive (mostly due to the Textbook Mafia and top-heavy "administration"). And, well, no fun. 

And while we're in reform mode, why are schools and libraries different things?

What is critical thinking? And do universities really teach it? | Culture: Education, Arts | Scoop.it

There has been a spate of articles and reports recently about the increasing importance of critical thinking skills for future employment.

A 2015 report by the Foundation for Young Australians claims demand for critical thinking skills in new graduates has risen 158% in three years. This data was drawn from an analysis of 4.2 million online job postings from 6,000 different sources in the period 2012-2015.

Technology Integration Matrix

Technology Integration Matrix | Culture: Education, Arts | Scoop.it

The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells as illustrated below.

All Roads Lead to Code - EduTech4Teachers | Culture: Education, Arts | Scoop.it

So, why just use technology, when you can build it, right? But first—students need the programming know-how in order to do so… And that begins with you!

Whether you choose to embrace the concept or not, it’s becoming more and more important to equip students with coding skills. It’s the new literacy for a generation of students growing up in a digitally-connected world. Having this knowledge not only strengthens general skills such as critical thinking and problem solving, but it will become invaluable in their future as a wide range of industries are eager to hire individuals with programming abilities.

How to teach literacy so no child is left behind

How to teach literacy so no child is left behind | Culture: Education, Arts | Scoop.it

Children who do not learn to read in the first few years of schooling are typically destined to a school career of educational failure, because reading underpins almost all subsequent learning.

Even when exemplary reading instruction is available, there will always be some children who take longer than others to catch on to what reading is all about. It is important to identify these low-progress readers as early as possible so that they do not fall too far behind their peers.

What do managers fear most?

You guessed it: Giving feedback. Somehow, it never works out well. Some employees will shake their heads and make promises — and then go right back to their old ways. Others will crawl into a shell and tune out. Of course, a few brave souls will toss what their managers say right back into their faces.

What is Phenomenon-Based Learning?

Finland will go through a new education reform that will take over in the academic year 2016-2017. Phenomenon-Based Learning will be complementing Finland’s traditional subjects. The Phenomenon or Topic Based Learning is being planned to be conducted over periods during the year and could be paced in projects – is the old new in Finland’s education. For more than three decades, Finnish schools have had a form of Phenomenon-Based Learning. What will change in 2016-2017 is that it will be obligatory in all basic schools for seven to 16-year-olds.

Next Generation of Online Education: “Learn by Doing” in a Digital World

Next Generation of Online Education: “Learn by Doing” in a Digital World | Culture: Education, Arts | Scoop.it

Shifting to “Learn by Doing”

 

Becker of NMC says just as the role of the teacher is switching from “sage on the stage” to one of a coach or guide, there is a shift from rote to active learning. To foster skills of teamwork and collaboration, online education is incorporating group projects and hands-on labs to help students think more critically and retain the content.

 

Building on the concept of “learn by doing,” online education is expanding to connect students from around the world to learn together and meet professionals. Morris is also executive director of the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration, which partners with more than 200 cultural organizations, such as art museums, to offer real-time interaction with experts in various fields.

 

This exposure can help answer student questions about the relevance of a geometry class, for instance. “To answer the questions of why you are doing it is key,” says Morris. “[Students] are motivated when they understand and have a reason to understand the material.”

The Power of Transparency in Your Teaching

The Power of Transparency in Your Teaching | Culture: Education, Arts | Scoop.it

The most recent issue of Peer Review (Winter/Spring 2016; published by AACU) highlights the powerful impact ‘transparency’ can have on learning for all students. One aspect of transparency is making obvious the intellectual practices involved in completing and evaluating a learning task. But making these processes visible for students is more easily said than done; we are experts in our fields for the very reasons that our thinking and evaluating are automatic and subconscious.

16 skills students need to learn today to thrive tomorrow | Culture: Education, Arts | Scoop.it
The gap between the skills people learn and the skills people need is becoming more obvious, as traditional learning falls short of equipping students with the knowledge they need to thrive, according to the World Economic Forum report New Vision for Education: Fostering Social and Emotional Learning Through Technology.

Today's job candidates must be able to collaborate, communicate and solve problems – skills developed mainly through social and emotional learning (SEL). Combined with traditional skills, this social and emotional proficiency will equip students to succeed in the evolving digital economy.
