How Course Design Puts the Focus on Learning Not Teaching

How Course Design Puts the Focus on Learning Not Teaching | Curated Collection of Digital Artefacts: Assignment 1 EDEL 20001 | Scoop.it

Instructional design, also known as learning design, appears to be making a comeback. Massive open online courses [MOOCs] that mimic the classroom model where the learner is passive and the instructor is not, highlights the need for fresh, new approach to course design. And it’s not just MOOCs that need help, but numerous courses currently offered online; many are in need an overhaul to create an environment focused on learning, rather than one that focuses on instruction.

The Padagogy Wheel ... it's a Bloomin' Better Way to Teach

The Padagogy  Wheel ... it's a Bloomin' Better Way to Teach | Curated Collection of Digital Artefacts: Assignment 1 EDEL 20001 | Scoop.it

" Dr Ian Green from the School of Education here at Adelaide and I [Allan Carrington] have used Padagogy 101 (introduction to iPad in HE) and Padagogy 201 (more advanced use for L&T) to train over 600 faculty from universities in Australia. During my research I saw lots of great work done by others using Bloom’s Taxonomy including the Revised Taxonomy which has now become the Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy. However when I discovered the excellent pioneer work done by Kathy Schrock with “Bloomin’ Apps” I got the idea for the Padagogy Wheel. Dare I say it but it is the next version for mobile learning of the ongoing importance of Bloom’s Taxonomy. Bloom’s is still fundamental to good teaching and learning."

Being Social: How Social Media Can Transform Your School Classrooms | Digital Learning Environments

Elena Keating's insight:

Wes Heberlein's curator insight, August 5, 2013 7:13 PM

Transformative learning starts with the educators and this article really showcases the potential of our classrooms being connected across the global breaking down social and economical barriers.  The uses of social media outlined here show how we as individuals can leave our digital footprint on society, create change for the future, share and create new knowledge.

 

The graphic shows the dramatic increase in just 3 years of the amount of educational professionals engaging in social media use.  Its full potenital definitely hasn't been realised and it would be fair to say a large proportion of these individuals would only have engaged for this for personal use, still struggling with the application and legalities of it for professional use.

Dana Hawkins's comment, August 8, 2013 7:21 PM
I struggled with the same issues myself when I was writing my dissertation, and I came across two very different arguments. The first argument, which I felt most comfortable with, was to create a 'professional' profile within social media so you can be assured of the content visible to students. With this in mind, is asking students to also create separate profiles for learning beneficial, or will students treat their learning profile as simply 'homework'? The other theory was that there should be transparency between teacher and student, and that giving students access to your 'teacher' profile somewhat lessens the experience. I personally can't ever see myself wanting my students to gain access to my personal profile, nor would I want any legal battle that could come from inappropriate content.
Wes Heberlein's comment, August 13, 2013 9:35 AM
It's a tough one Dana. I agree with you and there are some pretty clear cut rules regarding this sort of stuff but these rules are not always practical as I have found working in a secondary context. You can 'professionally' be doing the right thing yet still cop the consequences should something unfortunate occur. Its a tough predicament.

“ Chance favours the connected mind.”   -  Steven Johnson. What a powerful statement. This quote came from the end of the video presentation but I found it the most powerful of all his statements.

We need a space for collaboration to take place in order to create.

We need the following 4 steps in order to provide opportunities for creativity.

The identification of a problem or opportunity. An awareness of potential resources and previous modelsThe interdependence of people, technology, past experience, and collectively-wrought social goalsThe iteration of thinking that leads to a solution or further important thinking

Steven Johnson

“Good ideas require connectivity, time, iteration, and the macro recognition of systems & patterns.” Connectivity at its best and transformation.

I will be using Steven’s 5 Takeaways. Takeaway 3 lends itself to risk taking in class. Takeaway 5 gives me permission to create self-directed learning and Flipping the Classroom. The many Apps we have seen in our Scoops such as Prezzies, mind Maps etc support Steven’s Metacognitive thinking ideas. Finally takeaway 1 and 2 give me permission to create something that I can use to build self-esteem and confidence in my students of their creativity and ability to learn.

7 Key Characteristics Of Better Learning Feedback

7 Key Characteristics Of Better Learning Feedback | Curated Collection of Digital Artefacts: Assignment 1 EDEL 20001 | Scoop.it
by Grant Wiggins, Ph.D, Authentic Education 7 Key Characteristics Of Better Learning Feedback Whether or not the feedback is just “there” to be grasped or offered by another person, all the examples highlight seven key characteristics of...
Elena Keating's insight:

Feedback is a powerful learning tool. If you are not face to face with your class how well will this be actioned?

This article is important in many levels. Firstly feedback is vital if we want outcomes to improve. Wiggins is quick to point out that there is a notable difference between feedback and advice. He also states that we must use all seven characteristics of feedback if we wish to achieve “robust improvements”.

How does this fit in with my philosophy and e-learning? Let’s go back to the cycle in the flipped classroom. Goal setting although teacher led was integral to the process of concept exploration. Set a goal and you know where you are going Therefore goal referenced feedback is a way of keeping students in the direction they want to go. Can goals be modified, certainly and isn’t that part of constructivist thinking. – build and modify- to create the knowledge you need.

If feedback is to be transparent and tangible what better way than to link it to a model of what your goal is. Here is where technology comes to the fore. Look at the plethora of apps for students to use to present their knowledge or model their response to the project they are involved with. This is truly augmentation. This self-regulation to feedback can be compared to the feedback received from video games. It allows for a change in direction in striving for the goal. Brett Taylor’s insights into gaming as a learning tool in his Scoop about Learning Objects supports this argument. Grant adds that often as teachers we may  miss what is or is not happening while we teach, as can student. By recording ourselves or keeping a record of discussions we may be able to look back and find that transparent, tangible feedback and shift our learning direction as needed.

This then becomes actionable feedback. What is working, and what is not? How can I make it work? This type of feedback can be discussed in a social setting through Blogging and reflection by the students, peers and learning coaches (teachers).

In order for the feedback to be ‘user friendly’ it must be perceived as do-able and in terms understood by the learner. What better than feedback from peers. The language is familiar and the understanding on a par with the student to whom the feedback is offered. Gerstein’s Flipped Classroom, the Meaning making quadrant offers the opportunity for user friendly feedback.

Technology is probably one of the better ways for timely feedback to be proffered. Time is allowed for reflection, thinking and reviewing the work. Presentations can be edited right up until the minute of presentation. It can be ongoing to allow for constant adjustment and readjustment of ideas and learning. This type of feedback was demonstrated beautifully in Eric Mazur’s U-Tube watched earlier in this course. His advocating of less lecturing and more problem solving, allows the student to actualize the learning in a way that is best for their level of development, whilst still encouraging the thinking process, higher level thinking and problem solving strategies that are meaningful to the student.

Finally consistent feedback keeps both the learner and the coach a symbiotic understanding of how each are travelling on their learning journey. For we are all learners.  As teachers we modify our approaches according to the needs of the students from their feedback and as students we are guided by feedback to find our own way in the learning journey.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 12, 2013 8:45 AM

The problem with being goal-centred can be that we lock in on that as the only possible outcome. 21st Century learning should be open to serendipity. Have goals, use feedback, and be open to rethinking.

An Interactive Tutorial: Google Presentation

An Interactive Tutorial: Google Presentation | Curated Collection of Digital Artefacts: Assignment 1 EDEL 20001 | Scoop.it

Google Presentation is a great tool for helping students construct knowledge about a topic as they create. Here is an interactive tutorial designed to demonstrate how to use some of the handy built in features.


Via Susan Oxnevad, Elena Keating
Elena Keating's insight:

This particular item is a fantastic online resource for students to learn about how Google can be used to help track their research, and develop presentations collaboratively with others within their class to share. By doing so, this is a functional improvement to the technology in that now it has provided an opportunity to augment the production of a presentation on line in time with someone other than the original author. It now fits into Connectivist theory because of the social interaction. It creates an artefact to demonstrate learning and can involve student selected options to display the learning .The teacher is now no longer ‘the sage on the stage” but “the guide on the side”.

Learners are encouraged to create their own pathway in learning and can utilize as little or as much of the technology to help them gather the information, store it and retrieve it as and when needed. They may choose to reject some of the data, or alter the presentation to suit their own understandings and preferred learning style.

I like the way the this tool allows the student to create their own topic. Once again taking on responsibility for their own learning.

Nice infographic ... really need to distribute this amongst many in the community education field who often see 21st Century education as something they could never be involved in as they feel "untrained" - looking at the key terminology used though many would be able to more than adequately enter this space and really perform.

Justine Crompton's comment, August 16, 2013 11:15 PM
This infographic is a great reminder of how we can always better our teaching and as Brett pointed out it might also prompt some teachers to realise they are already operating well with reference to some of the terminology. I often feel some teachers lose confidence when change is occurring if they are not being instructed (PD) in a constructivist learning method - what do you already know or do well - BUILD ON THAT. I like how the blogger associated (linked) with this infographic prefers the term "modern connected teacher" to 21st Century teacher. I believe this is a term that would continue beyond the latter. The seven general capabilities (Australian National Curriculum) to develop in students links well to this chart. If you explore further the creator of the chart, Mia McKee, has a great infographic "Preparing Students To Present: 27 Ways To Have an Awesome Presentation" on her blog site. Presentation features heavily in the realm of eLearning.

These 10 concepts probably seem a little old hat but they are definitely the trend at the moment.  We sit around the lunch table, in the staffroom and throw these terms back and forth.  We debate the applicability of these to be successful in our settings and yes at times some of these are not practical.  We trial and implement these concepts but ultimately our education system seems to be ruled by curriculum guidelines, school pressures, assessment, and limited timeframes.  This leads us to giving up on these when we are just getting started.  One thing that has changed in teaching is that perseverence pays off.  It worked for Aristotle, it worked for teachers in the 1850s, it worked for teachers in the 1950s and it will work for you today!

An Illustration of Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture

The Flipped Classroom: The Full picture is not about watching videos as homework.


Via JackieGerstein Ed.D., Elena Keating
Elena Keating's insight:

The Flipped Classroom is a cycle of learning with relevance to the broader community. It is authentic, engaging , relevant with its foundations in experiential learning.

Starts with experiencing, reflecting, making meaning and acting -  (EXPERIENCING)

After the initial engagement comes concept exploration – (WHAT)

The technology supports learning through live chats, videos and web sites to support the learning.

Learners have the control over when and how they learn. They can also choose how to capture store and represent their learning.

They then are tasked with making meaning from their learning - SO WHAT

NOW WHAT -  How can I demonstrate my learning and who to?

Note how the right hand side of the cycle is educator driven whilst the final stages on the left of the cycle are Learner driven. Here the locus of responsibility for learning has shifted from teacher orientated to student orientated which leads to more constructive learning.

The learning is definitely Constructivist in approach but it has strong elements of Connectivism. It allows for learning to occur through social networking that has been enhanced through the use of technology. It involves more than modification and redefinition it allows for substitution and augmentation. Students conducting their own research, blogging, making meaning and transforming that meaning into video and audio reflections. The ability to share their ideas and receive  feedback from peers, creates a rich learning environment.

What a great way to engage students in taking responsibility for their own learning. Imagine for example a student with low self esteem exploring ways to investigate comprehension strategies, applying them to a task and in a flipped classroom developing activities for their peers to try out their activity and provide feedback about their new understandings.
