Published on Mar 6, 2013

Innovative thinker John Seely Brown, known for his ideas for merging digital culture and education, shares lessons educators can learn from surfers, gamers, and artists on how passion and competitive hunger can drive intrinsic motivation.

Tracy18's curator insight, March 19, 2013 6:46 AM

Such an inspiration and a very insightful man. We have been stuck in a 'Teacher says so' learning environment for generations and a shift is occuring whereby students are embracing change and using technolgy in a constructivist manner to further their own education, students are embracing change much more readily than teachers who still seem reluctant. 

Sample Student's comment, March 25, 2013 10:42 PM
I first discovered John Seely Brown when completing my M.Ed - http://people.ucsc.edu/~gwells/Files/Courses_Folder/ED%20261%20Papers/Situated%20Cognition.pdf. This view on learning rang, and still rings truth as one of the core theories that underpin my beliefs. It is timeless. In an age where learners' contexts are often more deterministic than the classroom, the interdependence of activity, culture and concept is, as you point out so well, a fundamental principle of social constructivism. In the age of technology, as information becomes so available to all, our learning cultures have shifted to one in which the learner is empowered to lead their own learning. And so this model, presented before the age of social technology, still predicts, anticipates, and explains learning.

I love teaching online. Working from home, having a flexible schedule, and possessing an ability to adapt well to new educational technologies are just a few reasons why I see myself working in a remote capacity for the duration of my career. However, teaching at a distance does present its share of issues, especially for recently hired faculty.

10 Pros And Cons Of A Flipped Classroom

10 Pros And Cons Of A Flipped Classroom | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
The main goal of a flipped classroom is to enhance student learning and achievement by reversing the traditional model of a classroom, focusing class time on student understanding rather than on lecture. To accomplish this, teachers post short video lectures online for students to view at home prior to the next class session. This allows class time to be devoted to expanding on and mastering the material through collaborative learning exercises, projects, and discussions.

No todo es ventajoso en el flipped classroom, pues al ser resignificado por el uso de la tecnología, este puede generar una inequidad entre los estudiantes que tienen o nó acceso a ella. Por otro lado, representa mucho más trabajo para el docente. Sin embargo, los aspectos positivos de aplicar el flipped classroom son mucho mayores que sus inconvenientes.

Megan Von Bergen: Using Screencasts for Formative and Summative Assessment | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
As a new teacher, one of the resources I found most helpful in shaping my grading practices was Grant Wiggins’s advice on feedback and assessment. Meaningful feedback, he suggests, is much more than assigning a grade or even offering recommendations for improvement. Rather, meaningful feedback is descriptive, “play[ing] back” the student’s performance and connecting it to the learning outcomes of the course.
