Rethinking Education: Self-Directed Learning Fits the Digital Age

Rethinking Education: Self-Directed Learning Fits the Digital Age | E-Learning Suggestions, Ideas, and Tips | Scoop.it

Is the one-size-fits-all, top-down classroom a misfit for the Digital Age? 

 

Standards-based education is ruining the way educators teach and children learn. Education should not be about teaching to the next level in education and vocation and yet, that is exactly what our current school system is designed to do.

 

Our goal should be to foster a love of learning for learning sake. Learning is not something that we should force onto our children to ensure they go to college and get a good job. True learning is intrinsically motivated and the reward is knowledge.

In the current digital age, does the current standards driven system work any longer?

Amirah Tucker's curator insight, March 10, 8:54 PM

I agree that the school systems should foster a love of learning for learning sake. Learning shouldn't be forced onto our children to ensure they go to college and get a good job, but this is what society and the school system has created for such a long period of time. Today, we are taught that a bachelor's degree is the new high school diploma, and that most employers will look for candidates who have a master's degree or higher. This puts so much pressure on children even at early ages that in the back of their minds, they don't get the chance to love learning or even explore their passions, yet they are forced to choose a career that will help them succeed and pay them well.

Bianca Partyka's curator insight, March 31, 2:39 PM

I also think there is no limit to using technology in the classroom. I think every student learns differently and integrating technology in the classroom can help students find new means of studying that works well for them. I agree that teaching students to test them all the the same level is not the way to go about it. I think that it is "destroying our youth" and causing them to be high anxiety.

This is a fabulous series that explore science. Six animated videos are available that show "the way we think scientifically by considering skepticism, testing, blinding, uncertainty  ethics and citizen science." By title they are:

* This Thing Called Science Part 1: Call me skeptical

* This Thing Called Science Part 2: Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3

* This Thing Called Science Part 3: Blinded by Science

* This Thing Called Science Part 4: Confidently Uncertain

* This Thing Called Science Part 5: Do the Right Thing

* This Thing Called Science Part 6: Citizen Science

These videos were created by Bridge8, who also put out a great series of videos on Critical Thinking. You can find that series at http://bridge8.wordpress.com/2012/01/30/critical-thinking-animations/

There are also 2 guides available for the Critical Thinking series, a postcard size one and an extended one. I found these on YouTube when I accessed the video Critical Thinking Part 1: A Valuable Argument uploaded by techNyouvids.

The World’s Largest Repository of Free Online Learning Tutorials

The World’s Largest Repository of Free Online Learning Tutorials | E-Learning Suggestions, Ideas, and Tips | Scoop.it

Here’s a common scenario. Someone emails and asks about an elearning tutorial I have on the blog. It’s not always easy to find the specific tutorial buried in a given post. In fact, there are many times I either forgot that I had created that tutorial or I can’t recall where it’s at either. I know. It’s part of getting older.

 

Today I am going to fix that. I have listed every blog post that has a video tutorial that shows how to create something related to online learning. So, if you’re just getting started with building online learning courses (or new to the blog), now you have a handy resource with links to all sorts of rapid elearning tutorials.

It is interesting how few classroom teachers and administrators are aware of what self-directed learning is. SDL is an imperative for our children.

Avery's curator insight, March 25, 2013 11:56 PM

My Thoughts:

You can't teach someone how to learn. You can give them helpful tips and advice, but a single structure for education is not going to work for everyone. It's so much harder for people to learn their true potential, to reach their goals, when they're only shown a single path to them. You show them the path through the forest, but what if there's a rock face nearby that also leads up to where they want to go, and what if they happen to be a fantastic rock climber? It just makes more sense to show someone a map if you can, instead of directing them towards only one path.
