What Will Education Look Like in a More Open Future? | TRUST | Autonomy | Collaboration

What Will Education Look Like in a More Open Future? | TRUST | Autonomy | Collaboration | E-Learning | Scoop.it

David Price: In my book, OPEN: How We’ll Work, Live And Learn In The Future, I argue that a relentless focus upon high-stakes accountability — through student testing and teacher evaluation — has done little to improve outcomes, and has de-professionalized and demoralized teachers.
.
On the other hand, the flourishing of social collaboration among educators offers hope for a profession under siege, because it’s through self-determining their own professional learning that teachers and administrators can both offset the worst effects of being told how to do their jobs and accelerate innovation.
.
After the failure of command-and-control, there is now a growing interest in self-managed work-groups, radical transparency and open learning systems as productivity and innovation drivers. What would that look like for educators?

.

“Open” as a way of working, and living our lives, is winning. It is time we applied it to education.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, April 17, 4:02 PM

OPEN:  education that fosters innovation and creativity, that validates that individuals learn in different ways and paces.  The foundstion of this vision is one that is not filled with fear of failure.  Fear on the part of teachers that they will fail to measure up to high scores for student achievement on standardized tests or,an evaluation system that checks off boxes band on 45 mi Utes in a classroom by a sometimes inexperienced administrator.  Freedom from fear for students who work in a system of grades for every piece of paper, where the focus is on work completed rather than learning.m. If we are to achieve this better vision of education in the future, then we must be willing to make some fundamental changes to our business as usual school system in America.

Hannah Weaver's curator insight, April 18, 3:31 PM

This article talks about the future and how an open education will bring about more diversity, something I am passionate about.

Characteristics of good elearning

Characteristics of good elearning | E-Learning | Scoop.it

Thought-provoking


It's all very well having fun while using elearning materials. ===> But what you're trying to do is get people to change the way they behave or think. <===

 

For that to occur, ===> good elearning will cause people to reflect on what they currently do/think and start working the way the elearning is suggesting. <===

 

You actually want to bring in some element of "cognitive dissonance" - putting people in a state where they may end up trying to hold two conflicting ideas.


Often, this brings out some emotion.

 

===> But, even if people disagree with what the content is saying, at least you've stimulated a reaction. That's better than no reaction at all. <===

Google Plus:  Is This the Social Tool Schools Have Been Waiting For? | E-Learning | Scoop.it
There seem to be three forces at play when it comes to education and social media. The first is a lack of force, quite frankly - the inertia that makes many educators unwilling and uninterested in integrating the technology into their classrooms.

Only two things wrong with education: 1) What we teach; 2) How we teach | E-Learning | Scoop.it

To cut to the quick, Schank thinks Higher Education is a con. You pay through the nose for not very much more than a three or four year vacation and a good social life. The courses are poor and the system designed to select researchers.

#No! O que e como ensinamos [ensinamos?!] é consequência da má formação docente.. e formação continuada 'out', da desalorização salarial que obriga muitos a fazer bicos no tempo que poderiam estar se atualizando.. resultado das polítivas píblicas deficitárias na #edu!!
