5 Videos That Describe New Learning

5 Videos That Describe New Learning | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"What new learning actually is depends on who you talk to. Project-based learning infused with educational technology. Game-based learning and learning simulations. Self-directed learning and learning through play. eLearning and mobile learning to promote personalized learning for every (learner and) child. All of these forms and dozens more are available as we head into the summer before the 2013-2014 school year."

The Discoveries That Promote Metacognition & Self-Directed Learning

"The Discoveries That Promote Metacognition & Self-Directed Learning

 

In lieu of the academic standards, self-Knowledge–and perhaps the thinking habits learners possess–are the ultimate goal of all learning.

 

While it’s potentially useful to be able to calculate the area of a triangle, extract the theme from a poem, or identify push-pull factors in immigration, self-knowledge is the ability to take those ideas and fundamentally inform how you interact with the world around you.

 

These ideas include “Who am I,” and “What is my ideal self?” It is this kind of thinking that helps provide a “need to know” in students, in project-based learning for example, so rather than teach tone in an English-Language Arts class, you can first provide a need to understand tone, which itself is imposed by a self-aware interaction in the world."

The Four Stages Of The Self-Directed Learning Model

The Four Stages Of The Self-Directed Learning Model | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"Self-Directed Learning is not new.

 

Studied in terms of adult education and vocation for years, self-directed learning is increasing in popularity for a variety of reasons, including growing dissatisfaction with public schooling, and the rich formal and informal learning materials available online. This is the “age of information” after all. Self-directed learning is one response."

5 Characteristics Of Global Learning

5 Characteristics Of Global Learning | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"This post is more about the characteristics of that kind of approach to learning. As globalization becomes more and more inevitable, understanding where we’re drifting might help us make adjustments as we go, yes? The characteristics are numerous and we could almost start anywhere, but five broad characteristics appear below.
1. Local –> Global pattern
2. Self-Directed
3. Iterative & Spiraled
4. Social & Digital
5. Drive By New Actuators"
from source:http://www.teachthought.com/

ghbrett's insight:

While this post is brief, the points are well made. Another thought is "Global" as I understand it here is trans-national, that is, it is crossing international boundaries. I think that Organizations and Agencies that deal with non-traditional students, staff or employees world wide should consider these five elements as well.

The purpose of this series of articles is to provide an easy to understand technical explanation of how exactly the SCORM protocol works. One of the things that greatly surprised me when I first began working with SCORM was that there seemed to be a surprising lack of good, practical technical documentation

Navy Times Editorial: Fix training troubles

"Navy leadership has been missing, ironically, in administering command-directed leadership training. Turns out, that training has been “mandatory” in name only — at least when it comes to more than 67,000 sailors.

 

According to Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (AW/NAC) Mike Stevens, many of those sailors may have received the training, but it wasn’t recorded properly in fleet training databases. But as Stevens said himself, “The training’s not done until it’s documented.”

 

So some commands do the training but don’t record it. Others skip it completely. Those that follow the rules may be using trainers without the skill level envisioned when the fleet moved to a command-directed system in 2008 — another problem MCPON is trying to address."

When speaking with colleagues and others about the potential and promise of mobile learning, the idea of support (mSupport) is called the "sweet spot." And for good reason. This is where we can leverage mobile learning in the workplace.
