C4LPT (Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies) ha compartido una nueva edición de los resultados arrojados por su encuesta anual sobre las 100 mejores herramientas para el Aprendizaje.

Una lista que tiene en cuenta tanto aquellas herramientas que contribuyen al desarrollo y formación del docente como las que influyen directamente en la forma de impartir la enseñanza. Esta iniciativa liderada por Jane Hart puede ser una guía interesante a tener en cuenta para implementar nuevos recursos  y herramientas educativas. Dando un recorrido por los primeros puestos.

Robin Good's curator insight, June 13, 2013 12:13 PM



From the original article by Justin Reich and Beth Holland on MindShift: "What would a math class look like where students learn to compute, prove, derive, and intuit, as well as to discern and appreciate mathematical beauty?


What about a history class where students maintained a portfolio of beautiful artifacts and ideas from multiple periods?


How might efforts to curate benefit from the portability and ubiquity of mobile devices?


What would a “relevance portfolio” look like, where students catalog their daily encounters with ideas or experiences? What other kinds of portfolios could students create over the course of their academic career?"


If you are curious to get a glimpse at how tablets and their apps can be utilized to leverage curation for your classroom learning objectives, then this is definitely a good read.


You get a good introduction with some interesting historical facts about curation and about what it could be done with it in the real of education, and then you are provided with a good number of examples and tools that you can start to use right away.



Informative. Resourceful. 8/10

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics | Didactics and Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Must-read article on ClutterMuseum.com by Leslie M-B, exploring in depth the opportunity to have students master their selected topics by "curating" them, rather than by reading and memorizing facts about them.

 

"Critical and creative thinking should be prioritized over remembering content"

 

"That students should learn to think for themselves may seem like a no-brainer to many readers, but if you look at the textbook packages put out by publishers, you’ll find that the texts and accompanying materials (for both teachers and students) assume students are expected to read and retain content—and then be tested on it.

 

Instead, between middle school (if not earlier) and college graduation, students should practice—if not master—how to question, critique, research, and construct an argument like an historian."

 

This is indeed the critical point. Moving education from an effort to memorize things on which then to be tested, to a collaborative exercise in creating new knowledge and value by pulling and editing together individual pieces of content, resources and tools that allow the explanation/illustration of a topic from a specific viewpoint/for a specific need.

 

And I can't avoid to rejoice and second her next proposition: "What if we shifted the standards’ primary emphasis from content, and not to just the development of traditional skills—basic knowledge recall, document interpretation, research, and essay-writing—but to the cultivation of skills that challenge students to make unconventional connections, skills that are essential for thriving in the 21st century?"

 

What are these skills, you may ask. Here is a good reference where to look them up: http://www.p21.org/storage/documents/P21_Framework_Definitions.pdf (put together by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills)

 

 

Recommended. Good stuff. 9/10

Brilliant.  This is an example of what is known as "flipping" where the student is directed to where information can be found, e.g. Youtube, websites, powerpoint, etc and set critical evaluative questions.

 

Home School Learning is an ideal example of students as curators of their learning. It is essential for children to learn to be in charge of their learning from pre-school in order to develop essential evaluative and critical analytical skills. audrey@homeschoolsource.co.uk.

 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 13, 2013 7:43 PM

I had a similar conversation yesterday and as I prepare my lit review this thinking has emerged. It is less about content and more about skills, attitudes, habits, practices, etc. in learning.

Priscilla Der's curator insight, April 6, 10:12 PM

This article is a reminder that as we are curating content as teachers so are students. Rather then memorizing or reciting textbook facts, students should be able to steer and set their own learning goals (this is where PBL) comes into mind.

luiy's curator insight, January 30, 8:56 AM

L'anthropologue américaine Amber Case, directrice du centre de R&D ESRI, décrit les nouvelles technologies comme un prolongement naturel de nos corps. Les objets connectés sont une extension de nous-mêmes, ils augmentent nos capacités, nous confèrent des «superpouvoirs», avec la crainte toujours présente qu’ils prennent le pouvoir sur nous.

 

Les élèves équipés de multiples objets connectés n’auront plus besoin d’antisèches collées sous leurs chaussures. Il faudra peut-être truffer les salles d’examen de brouilleurs d’ondes... Ou alors accepter cette connexion permanente et repenser totalement la définition de l’apprentissage et de ses contenus. Il y a vingt-cinq ans, l’introduction de la calculatrice en cours et en examen faisait polémique. A écouter, les plus réfractaires, les élèves n’allaient plus savoir compter. Finalement, les élèves se sont mis à programmer des fonctions.

Le fait d’être connecté en permanence et donc de pouvoir vérifier une information ou de chercher des réponses permet de développer d’autres compétences que la mémoire et permet en un sens de pousser la réflexion plus loin. Ainsi dans l’évaluation, la restitution de connaissances deviendra sans aucun doute moins centrale que l’utilisation de différentes informations trouvées afin de structurer une pensée.

"Anything we can do to create models for young people as they are growing up as to what it’s like to live in an environment where ethics and morality is what we aspire to -- we don't necessarily achieve it but we aspire to it -- and if we screw up how can we do a better job, I think that's the best gift we can give young people growing up in any society."
