Rethinking Education: Self-Directed Learning Fits the Digital Age

Rethinking Education: Self-Directed Learning Fits the Digital Age | YK1 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.
