Clark Ouinn: Learnlets » 70:20:10 and the Learning Curve | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

By Clark Quinn: "My colleague Charles Jennings recently posted on the value of autonomous learning (worth reading!), sparked by a diagram provided by another ITA colleague, Jane Hart (that I also thought was insightful). In Charles’ post he also included an IBM diagram that triggered some associations."

The Future of Learning, Networked Society - Ericsson

Published on Oct 19, 2012

Learn more at http://www.ericsson.com/networkedsociety

Can ICT redefine the way we learn in the Networked Society? Technology has enabled us to interact, innovate and share in whole new ways. This dynamic shift in mindset is creating profound change throughout our society. The Future of Learning looks at one part of that change, the potential to redefine how we learn and educate. Watch as we talk with world renowned experts and educators about its potential to shift away from traditional methods of learning based on memorization and repetition to more holistic approaches that focus on individual students' needs and self expression.

Jan Lindblom's curator insight, November 10, 2013 7:04 PM

Todays education system is processing batches of students like it has been done since the age of industrialisation in order to produce educated labor force to factories. We don't have shortage of factory workers anymore, our priorities have shifted and access to information has changed. Should education models be therefore changed to? 1:00-2:20.


Using technology is no doubt included in Education 3.0, but should Cloud Education - using networked information technology in education also include new pedagogical ways to teach?

Koller speaks that equal education for global population to access best education available can be worthy goal, but we need to pragmatic with our short timescale goals. Improving how students are learning in education facilities and allowing education to be accessed by those who have not had access before is a great and achievable goal. 15:00-17:15.

Mitra is also speaking in this one.

After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 24, 2013 5:27 PM

Just as speaking is the outcome of listening, so writing is the outcome of reading, not the other way round. Listening to the student should also include "listening" to their writing. ie., analyse what they are saying and how they are doing it.  When students evaluate their own work, the teacher should listen and guide them to ways of improving it, whether it be punctuation, paragraphing, spelling, or word or subject knowledge.  This is how we bring students on board and empower them to learn. 

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:49 PM

Listening to students has two aspects; listening to what they say orally, and 'listening' to their writing which is only another way of talking, only through a code. Just as learning to speak is tied closely to listening to what is said and being exposed to words that help one to think better, so writing is the same  and relies on reading "or listening" to what others say and how they say it to express clear meaning. The two subjects, reading and writing, are closlely intertwined yet we compartmentalize them in the literacy curriculum. An example of adults thinking they know what is best for children.

Learning to learn: asking questions and taking names

Learning to learn: asking questions and taking names | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

By Ally Greer:


There are such things as stupid questions.


Just kidding, there aren’t. (Got your attention, though, right?)


I don’t care how many times we were told this growing up – I always find myself thinking, “Don’t ask that, that’s dumb. You should know that.” Well, guess what? Like I talked about in my last post, so many people of today’s world are in a perpetual state of learning. There is always something that seems obvious to one person that another person might not have ever thought about. The whole reason that conversing with others can be so amazing is because everyone has something to teach and everyone has something to learn. Why we view this as being stupid and not as an opportunity to extract new information is beyond me.


Don’t be afraid to keep asking.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Asking and answering questions quickly becomes the foundation for lifelong learning. Ally's insights reveal a young mind that's already addicted to learning (foreever).  A great read.

Organizing and Curating Content on a Subject May Actually Be The Best Way To Learn It

Organizing and Curating Content on a Subject May Actually Be The Best Way To Learn It | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Robin Good: I think Sam Gliksman has a vital point here. 

 

The point is this: there is no better way to learn something than to research, organize and build a personal framework of information, facts, resources, tools and stories around it. 

 

And yes, if I do think about it, I can only confirm that my in my experience this has certainly been the case. 

 

Rather than learn by memorizing and going through a predetermined path that someone else has arbitrarily set for me (and thousands of others), by curating my own learning path and curriculum, I am forced to dive into discovery and sense-making for the very start, two essential ingredients for effective learning. 

 

The change is evident: from passive memorization of predetermined info, to personal exploration, discovery and sense-making of what I am interested in pursuing. 

 

With such an approach, the replacement of classic teachers with curators who can act as guides, coaches and wise advisors to my exploratory wanderings may be vital to the success of many learners. 

 

Curation can therefore be a revolutionary concept applicable both to learners and their approach as well as to the new "teachers" who need to become trusted guides in specific areas of interest.

 

Here's the text excerpt from this article, that sparked in me these ideas:

 

"Reliance on any type of course textbook – digital, multimedia, interactive or otherwise – only fits as a more marginal element in student-centered learning models.

 

It’s not the nature of the textbook as much as its reverence in the classroom as “the” singular authority for learning.

 

Lifelong learners need to be skilled in finding, filtering, collating, evaluating, collaborating, editing, analyzing and utilizing information from a multitude of sources.


Instead we could prioritize “content construction”. Textbooks are an important gateway - a starting point from which students can learn and then begin their exploration of information on any topic (although even on that point I feel we should encourage the “critical reading” of textbooks).

 

However the days when students could responsibly rely on any textbook as a singular information source are gone.

 

Also, the process of accessing, synthesizing and utilizing information is often as important as the product.

 

The skills developed are an essential component of education and life today.

 

We have access to an exponentially growing amount of information to process and apply [and] there are many excellent tools we can all use to help in constructing and organizing that content."

 

Insightful. Informative. 8/10

Interesting article. Reflections…. Self worth and achievement seem to be linked together in most of Western Society. We personalise events in our life and then begin to live from our memories, gaining a false sense of identity instead of seeing it simply as a series of skills to learn. 

Takeaways: 

"people who think about their own learning, make a habit of asking questions, use what they’ve learned, teach what they’ve learned to others, and enjoy the learning process on an intrinsic level all become better learners"

"these are all strategies and habits that can be adopted through practice… The smartest, most successful people in the world wouldn’t be where they are today if they weren’t skilled learners. So let’s examine which strategies we should be perfecting and how they can serve us in the long run."

David Thornburg: Lectures Didn't Work in 1350—and They Still Don't Work Today

David Thornburg: Lectures Didn't Work in 1350—and They Still Don't Work Today | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
A conversation with David Thornburg about designing a better classroom


“Of all the places I remember from my childhood,” David Thornburg writes, “school was the most depressing.”  The now award-winning educational futurist and creator of the “educational holodeck,” Thornburg’s early experience in the classroom prompted him to help others rethink traditional classroom design. In his latest book, From the Campfire to the Holodeck: Creating Engaging and Powerful 21st Century Learning Environments, Thornburg outlines four learning models: the traditional “campfire,” or lecture-based design; the “watering hole,” or social learning; the “cave,” a place to quietly reflect; and “life”—where ideas are tested.

Engagement is the key. When the teacher, or professor, themselves have fully engaged with the material and used multiple senses in mastering the content they are more apt to spark the passion and interest for others. Even their lectures will be more engaging.

by Rob AbelMalcolm Brown, and John J. Suess


"The ground rules are changing. Connected learning both requires and drives a wider range and more rapid evolution of technology. The challenge for higher education is to design a new architecture for its learning mission. At the foundation and core of that architecture is information technology, in its role as the strategic enabler of connected learning. If we are to support students and faculty as connected learners and instructors, we must rethink our approach to academic technology architecture."

"The rise of the MOOC illustrates how important innovations often happen outside of established channels: by faculty who, interested in innovation, put together their own technology solutions outside their college or university. This should be a wake-up call for the higher education community to do better. Enterprise IT organizations need to enable such innovation, not stand in its way. ... What has been missing and is needed for success in this effort is for campus IT leaders to make connected learning one of their priorities. ... across Carnegie classifications..."

Generation YES » Youth & Educators Succeeding | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Generation YES is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) with a mission to empower students and teachers to use technology to improve education in their own school. Our school-friendly online tools and innovative project-based curriculum build a learning community where students work alongside their teachers as technology leaders, collaborators and mentors. 15 years of research experience and proven scientific results show that when schools trust and collaborate with their students to integrate technology, academic success follows.


We believe in Participatory Learning - where students and teachers work together to create optimal conditions for learning in every classroom; where students are agents of change, rather than objects of change.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

GenYes has been a great idea that's weathered the test of time. Students help teachers with technology. What better role reversal could there be?  If your school is struggling with tech support, the answer is right here.  Even if your school is cruising along with great tech infrastructure, letting the kids take over is one of the best things you can do to prepare a modern learner.
