A wonderful ebook. A FREE ebook. A very cleverly designed ebook. A great ebook.

 

Many insights on motivation and learning, compellingly presented in a media-enriched format. Definitely worth spending time on this one!

Fascinating example of a very rich way to publish material. Great idea for student work as an alternative to powerpoints and prezis.

After reading this blog, Jackie has articulated a new vision for education where she sees that the "best interests of the learner" needs to come first. I could not agree more. She describes Education 3.0 in this way: "Learners as connectors, creators, constructivists."

 

"Education 3.0 is a constructivist, heutagogical approach to teaching and learning.  The teachers, learners, networks, connections, media, resources, tools create a a unique entity that has the potential to meet individual learners’, educators’, and even societal needs.  Education 3.0 recognizes that each educator’s and student’s journey is unique, personalized, and self-determined.

 

The bottom line, though, is not is what is in the best interests of the teacher, the administration, the politicians.  It is what is in the best interests of the learner.  The student should be central to education – not the content, not the tests, not the standards, not what we think students should know and do.  Teachers did not become teachers to teach to the test, to develop practice tests or worksheets, to work with pre-scripted curriculum to meet standards.  Teachers became teachers to teach students, first and foremost.  The learner needs to be central to all teaching endeavors."

 

Thank you Jackie for sharing this perspective with educators, everywhere!

Esta nueva corriente de la educación se supone va a estar más centrada de manera especial sobre la conexión que se establezca entre la producción de los docentes con los alumnos, con un seguimiento más puntual sobre el uso de las herramientas digitales web 2.0, pero me imagino con un expertise cada vez más especializado en cuanto al dominio de las competencias (digitales) de los agentes educativos.
