Daniel Tan's insight:

Learning is moving from "knowing" to "recognizing"

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 11, 2014 11:57 AM

Gert Biesta proposed we use the language of learning which is instrumental i.e. students are clients versus the language of teaching which is relational and situational. What adaptive software cannot do is replace the relational, contextual, and situational teaching in learning.

 

I just finished reading Madeline Grumet's Bitter Milk which speaks to a patriarchal paradigm in education which is non-relational. Is this what we want?

Knowing from "knowing" to "recognizing"!

Ilkka Olander's curator insight, June 13, 2014 2:05 AM

But what is more fundamental is the change to our understanding of knowledge itself. We are shifting fromknowledge as remembering to knowledge as recognizing. The difference is that we understand knowing, not as an accumulation of facts, but rather, as a development of the self, of the creation of a 'mental muscle', which is in essence a set of reactions and instincts.

Sometimes, new knowledge looks like remembering, especially then the knowledge being applied is simple and straightforward. Sometimes it looks like a performance or skill, as when we perform a complex and adaptive task. Somethings it looks like mastery of the tools, as when we know exactly what and where to look up the information we need.

[PDF] New Vision for Education: Fostering Social and Emotional Learning through Technology

[PDF] New Vision for Education: Fostering Social and Emotional Learning through Technology | (e)Books and (e)Resources for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it
The New Vision for Education project examines the role that technology can potentially play to improve education for the future. In phase II, we investigated innovative ways to help students develop competencies* and character qualities** broadly defined as social emotional skills, which are critical components of 21st century skill framework but not a core focus in today’s curriculum.
 
Can technology effectively facilitate the development of competencies and character qualities, in addition to cognitive skills? If yes, what are the opportunities to capture to make it happen? What are the immediate, mid-term, and long-term barriers to remove? How can multistakeholders work together to create a roadmap for this vision?
 
In seeking answers to these questions, the report assembles a list of 55 research-based digital product features that are highly correlated with the ten competencies and character qualities and identifies five nascent technology trends – wearable devices, leading-edge apps, virtual reality, advanced analytics and machine learning, and affective computing – that extend ways of fostering social emotional learning (SEL) and also offer potential for exciting new learning strategies. The report concludes with recommendations to each stakeholder on actions to advance SEL and SEL technology adoption.

Andrés E. Henao's curator insight, April 27, 10:44 PM
On the side of the branched article ''What are the 21st-century skills every student needs?'', the current resume outlines an issue that is impossible to leave aside in nowaday's e-learning spread. Essentially, virtuality seems to replicate a world where an excess amount of needs constantly stress progression while disregarding the menace of a possible senseless or sterile community whose socia emotionall awareness may be already degrading.

What Blockchain Means for Higher Education | #FinTech #Bitcoin #EdTech

What Blockchain Means for Higher Education | #FinTech #Bitcoin #EdTech | (e)Books and (e)Resources for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it
When you hear the word blockchain does it make your head spin? Wall Street analysts and fintech experts claim it could make traditional banking obsolete; Airbnb just acquired a team of blockchain experts; and the country of Estonia will use it to secure a million patient health records.

But what exactly is blockchain, and what are its implications for higher education?

Originally created as the underlying database for bitcoin (the peer-to-peer digital asset and payment system), blockchain’s technology is now being seen as valuable and purposeful beyond the financial sector. The advantages blockchain provides to store information on a secure, permanent, historical ledger that can be both public and private will change how edtech applications approach student data.

A Complete Guide to Evernote

A Complete Guide to Evernote | (e)Books and (e)Resources for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it
If you've never heard me talk about Evernote, we probably haven't talked much. Evernote is my all time favorite tool for every aspect of my life. I use it for my personal life, this blog, my job, my freelance clients and everything in between. The problem with Evernote is that it can do SO much, it's very easy to get overwhelmed when starting out. My goal is to help you understand Evernote so that you'll use it and love it.

I've been using Evernote for close to 3 years now. It's one of the few programs I always have open on my computer. It's also the app I use most on my phone. I used to be a huge fan of notebooks (I still am), Evernote just lets me save those notes, search them and tag them. If you're a student, business owner, blogger, mom or planning any kind of event, Evernote will be useful to you.

WEAC's curator insight, April 28, 9:51 AM

"With a myriad of web tools and apps available to teachers, it’s sometimes mind-boggling trying to identify which are the most effective for the classroom. But if you’re looking for some innovative ways to showcase student work, here’s an awesome visual collection of resources spanning 11 categories—audio recordings, collages, comics, posters, slides, digital books, narrated slideshows, movies, animations, screen casts and study aids—to help get you started!"

Empathy is king

Design thinking, not unlike legal services, is all about people.
As David Maister noted, “above all, what I, the client, am looking for is that rare professional who has both technical skill and a sincere desire to be helpful, to work with both me and my problem. The key is empathy – the ability to enter my world and see it through my eyes.”

Empathy is also the key to making design thinking pay off. Opportunities for driving growth and competitive advantage are everywhere – the challenge is knowing where and how to look for them. Design thinking provides a framework for consistently identifying insights and systematically translating them into opportunities for the firm to create value.

The first step in any design-thinking approach is to assume a beginner’s mindset. Set aside any preconceptions about what the client needs or about the solutions that the firm can offer. The aim  of a client conversation shifts from ‘what are they asking for?’ to ‘what are they trying to achieve?’ The same applies to the way business functions like L&D and marketing serve their internal customers.
