Rethinking Education: Self-Directed Learning Fits the Digital Age

Rethinking Education: Self-Directed Learning Fits the Digital Age | Ed Tech | 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.

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.

Owning the experience of discovery, especially as it pertains to learning about a situation or topic, results in a deeper understanding of the situation. 

Nick Sigrist's curator insight, May 12, 2014 9:19 AM

Leaning towards the digital age is very important for education, because students have recently begun to center their lives around such devices like iPads, computers, and phones. This article explains the slow advances towards the use of computers and other devices that not only make our lives easier through communication, but can also do so very well through education.

Some Web 2.0 classroom tools every teacher and learner should know about | Ed Tech | Scoop.it
The term is audacious: Web 2.0. It assumes a certain interpretation of Web history, including enough progress in certain directions to trigger a succession. What forms of the Web have developed and become accepted enough that we can conceive of a transition to new ones? Many people—including, or perhaps especially, supporters—critique the “Web 2.0” moniker…

How much is too much? That is the question ask here!

Bill Hurley's curator insight, April 13, 2014 12:47 PM

"Researchers say the lure of these technologies, while it affects adults too, is particularly powerful for young people. The risk, they say, is that developing brains can become more easily habituated than adult brains to constantly switching tasks — and less able to sustain attention."

The future is here - practical ways to integrate Augmented Reality into the classroom.

Keaton Toscano's curator insight, March 12, 2014 10:59 AM

I can't wait for augmented reality (AR) to make its way into the classroom. Not only could it provide a visceral visual aid to students who are struggling with a concept, but it's also just plain cool. You want to take your students on a field trip to the louvre in art class, but lack the funding? Do you want to (pseudo)Literally put your engineering students into their CAD structure? When film first came about, people didn't have to worry about wading through crowds to be in the front row at a public speech, they would just watch it later from the camera's perspective. The same idea is happening here. Now you can put on a helmet, be in a different world for a fraction of the cost, have an, arguably, more fulfilling experience and do so for a fraction of the cost. Schools + AR? Count me in.

Juana Hajek's curator insight, April 25, 2014 12:09 AM

A list of activities which can be done with or without devices is included in this article.  Many of the activities (such as the virtual field trip) are to be used with a device.
