What Does Learning Look Like? A Look At Physical And Digital Spaces - Edudemic | Digital Literacies | Scoop.it
What does learning look like? Is it a classroom? Is there a teacher? Are students working by themselves or collaborating with others? Are they listening or constructing? Can all of these answers be correct?

Announcing: Educating Modern Learners

Announcing: Educating Modern Learners | Digital Literacies | Scoop.it
Today, I’m happy to announce that my friend and colleague Bruce Dixon and I are starting a new membership website, Educating Modern Learners (EML). It’s a site and an accompanying newsletter that’s...

 

We believe that top level decision makers often act without a relevant, global, modern lens for how technologies can best serve progressive teaching and learning.

 

This is through no fault of their own as much as it is the consequence of leading at a moment of rapid and radical change.

 

We believe there is a real need for a diverse set of expert voices to use a global lens to intelligently curate and contextualize the changes, new technologies, future trends, best practices and more on a regular basis.We believe this is a time of unprecedented opportunity.

 

A time for boldness, and a time for well-informed leadership to shape new thinking around what schools could and should be; about where, when, and how learning takes place.  

 

A time for us to truly rethink the possibilities that technology offers education, and a time for creative and courageous leadership to show the way.

We believe that schools must move away from “delivering” an education to, instead, empowering students to organize their own education.

Eileen Forsyth's curator insight, January 23, 2014 2:28 PM

What is the new purpose of school now that nearly the sum of human knowledge is just a few clicks away on devices we carry in our pockets?

What is the role of a teacher when we find ourselves with access to 2.5 billion people from around the world?

And how do we define an “education” when we can now learn so much on our own without the requirements of a traditional classroom or curriculum?

New questions require new answers.

It’s no longer good enough to improve school, to make it “better.” Instead, this moment requires that we think about education and schooling fundamentally differently to prepare students for a future that few of us could have imagined a few short years ago.
