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.

How a Bad Hire Taught Me This Crucial Lesson

How a Bad Hire Taught Me This Crucial Lesson | (e)Books and (e)Resources for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it
I learned that cultural fit is an essential consideration in hiring – and that you have to spend as much time assessing a candidate’s “soft skills,” such as communication, personality, and empathy, as his or her “hard skills” and credentials. The best person for the job will be strong in both kinds of skills, but I’d choose cultural fit over credentials any day. Talented people can fill in any skills gap they may have, but it’s really tough to overcome a bad cultural fit.

7 Things You Should Know About Universal Design for Learning | EDUCAUSE.edu

7 Things You Should Know About Universal Design for Learning | EDUCAUSE.edu | (e)Books and (e)Resources for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it

"Abstract: 


Universal Design for Learning is a framework for the design of materials and instructional methods that are usable by a wide range of students. One aim of UDL is to provide full access to students with special needs, but it offers significant affordances for all students, allowing them to benefit from learning presented through multiple sensory avenues and a variety of conceptual frameworks. Early research about the influence of UDL is positive, showing that it improves engagement and performance among all students.

The 7 Things You Should Know About... series from the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) provides concise information on emerging learning technologies. Each brief focuses on a single technology and describes what it is, where it is going, and why it matters to teaching and learning. Use these briefs for a no-jargon, quick overview of a topic and share them with time-pressed colleagues."

Do You Enter Conflict Like a Lion? | Initiative One

Do You Enter Conflict Like a Lion? | Initiative One | (e)Books and (e)Resources for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it
There’s an old proverb that states, “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.” That’s an encouraging thought. It provides some hope for you if you are experiencing bitter cold or heavy snowfall. Better days lie ahead. Although the proverb can lift your spirits on a cold March day, it doesn’t hold true for “marching” into the boardroom. Conflict can become synonymous with stormy weather and entering into conflict like a lion does not always portend a brighter future. Rather than roaring, take a few cues from the end of March. Here are three keys for navigating conflict.
