The Learning Innovation Cycle: How Disruption Creates Lasting Change

Coloma Canals's curator insight, September 22, 4:56 AM
La disrupción es cualquier cambio que actúa como una fuerza ocasionando una transferencia o redistribución de algo existente; ya sea market share, dinero, credibilidad, conocimiento o cualquier cosa que valoremos socialmente. 

Educación y disrupción comparten muchas conexiones. Buen modelo para mantener el ciclo de aprendizaje siempre vivo.

Being Popular: Why it Consumes Teens and Continues to Affect Adults - MindShift

Being Popular: Why it Consumes Teens and Continues to Affect Adults - MindShift | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
Popularity is a loaded word. For many adults, it evokes powerful memories of jockeying for position in high school cafeterias and hallways.

These memories are salient for a reason, said Mitch Prinstein, a professor of psychology and author of “Popular: The Power of Likability in a Status-Obsessed World.” The urge to be popular among our peers reaches its zenith in adolescence, “at just the same time we are developing a stable personality,” said Prinstein. “So the messages you get at age 14 about who you are and how the world works will affect how you behave when you are 40.”

But popularity has paradoxes. Sometimes the most popular students are also widely disliked by their peers — even when those same peers seek to emulate them.  And although we are hardwired to seek popularity, it isn’t always healthy for us, said Prinstein. In fact, one form of popularity puts teens at risk for long-term consequences.

The Learning Innovation Cycle

The Learning Innovation Cycle | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
Disruption is an interesting topic for the same reason that cowboys, gangsters, and villains are interesting. It’s unpredictable. Problematic. Against the grain.

It’s kind of aging as a buzzword in the “education space,” but it’s other-worldly powerful, and there are few things education needs more. How exactly it produces change is less clear, but I thought I’d create a model to think about. First, a quick preface. The iconic vision of disruptive innovation comes from Clayton Christensen, who uses the term to “describe a process by which a product or service takes root initially in simple applications at the bottom of a market and then relentlessly moves up market, eventually displacing established competitors.”

“Companies pursue these “sustaining innovations” at the higher tiers of their markets because this is what has historically helped them succeed: by charging the highest prices to their most demanding and sophisticated customers at the top of the market, companies will achieve the greatest profitability. However, by doing so, companies unwittingly open the door to “disruptive innovations” at the bottom of the market. An innovation that is disruptive allows a whole new population of consumers at the bottom of a market access to a product or service that was historically only accessible to consumers with a lot of money or a lot of skill.”

I usually think of disruption as any change that forces itself substantially on existing power sets. This force causes transfer–a redistribution of something–market share, money, credibility, knowledge, or something we collectively value. Here, in this literal re-vision (seeing again) and neo-vision (seeing new), is where enduring learning innovation can be born.

When Kids Have Structure for Thinking, Better Learning Emerges

When Kids Have Structure for Thinking, Better Learning Emerges | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

"...a short list of “thinking moves” related to understanding. To test whether these moves were really crucial, researchers asked themselves: could a student say she really understood something if she hadn’t engaged in these activities? They believe the important “thinking moves” that lead to understanding are:

-Naming: being able to identify the parts and pieces of a thing
-Inquiry: questioning should drive the process throughout
-Looking at different perspectives and viewpoints
-Reasoning with evidence
-Making connections to prior knowledge, across subject areas, even into personal lives
-Uncovering complexity
-Capture the heart and make firm conclusions
-Building explanations, interpretations and theories.

I like the last of the myth list best... This doesn't go in depth on this list but provides and opening for thought and discussion...

excerpt:
15. District “non-negotiables” are an appropriate response to instructional alignment. 
 16. Teachers are “the problem.” 
 17. A pre-test for the test to predict the performance on the test that itself is meant to predict understanding is an efficient way to process learning. 
 18. Engagement means learning. 
 19. Adoption of trendy learning tools will automatically improve learning. 
 20. Ignoring trendy learning tools helps keep the focus on “what’s important.” 
 21. Depth of knowledge doesn’t matter. 
 22. Curiosity is for cats.

The twenty-two myths listed in this article bust delusions, myths, and fallacies that rule the minds of policy makers. One will be surprised to see how mistaken we are about differential learning and the use of technology in class. Further to this, is the fallacy that engagement means learning, and that collaboration in the learning process should be constant!

Empathic listening builds mutual understanding and trust.

Even when the conflict is not resolved, empathic listening can have a profound impact on the parties, improving relationships and generating mutual respect.

 

How: The former ombudsman at the University of Colorado, Tom Sebok, used to give a lecture in my conflict skills class every semester on active listening.  He said it involved three actions:

  • 1) attending to the speaker,
  • 2) paraphrasing what the speaker said and
  • 3) summarizing the key points.

When it’s done well, project-based learning (PBL) honours your learner’s inherent gifts as vital to the success of the group. With that said, PBL also offers an avenue to those teachers wishing to give their students an awesome experience within STEM learning. 
PBL has always allowed students to take ownership of the direction of their learning, and placed a focus on higher-order thinking. STEM learning is no different in that regard. In the article Six Characteristics of a Great STEM Lesson, Anne Jolly says:
“STEM develops a set of thinking, reasoning, teamwork, investigative, and creative skills that students can use in all areas of their lives. STEM isn’t a standalone class—it’s a way to intentionally incorporate different subjects across an existing curriculum.”
She goes on to describe the 6 things that make STEM learning so awesome. These 6 factors are also why STEM learning is—and always has been—the new PBL.
