Anne Whaits's curator insight, May 1, 2013 7:44 PM

It is my view that one of the most significant statements made by George Siemens is this one: "As knowledge continues to grow and evolve, access to what is needed is more important than what the learner currently possesses." 

 

The role of teaching (and learning) then needs to shift in several ways to support this. How do we support students in selecting, discerning, organising this information and critically reflecting on it? How do we support students in creating new ways of evidencing their learning? How do we encourage students to create content themselves that adds to this growing and evolving abundance of information and knowledge generation?

 

"The Network is the Learning"....another of George Siemens' statements that resonates so well with me.

Carlos Castaño's comment, May 10, 2013 7:08 AM
Quizá no sea aún una teoría del aprendizaje en sentido estricto del término, pero su influencia es innegable. Es, sin duda, un intento de articular una teoría del aprendizaje que entiende la Red. Y ese es el mejor comienzo
Carlos Lizarraga Celaya's curator insight, May 10, 2013 9:46 AM

Connectivism is the integration of principles explored by chaos, network, and complexity and self-organization theories.

In a knowledge economy, the flow of information is the equivalent of the oil pipe in an industrial economy…

The pipe is more important than the content within the pipe. Our ability to learn what we need for tomorrow is more important than what we know today. A real challenge for any learning theory is to actuate known knowledge at the point of application. When knowledge, however, is needed, but not known, the ability to plug into sources to meet the requirements becomes a vital skill. As knowledge continues to grow and evolve, access to what is needed is more important than what the learner currently possesses.

Teacher job satisfaction at 25-year low | HechingerEd Blog

Teacher job satisfaction at 25-year low | HechingerEd Blog | Education 4 the market | Scoop.it

From the website

Summary by Accomplished Teacher

 

"After two years of dramatic education reform efforts, teachers nationwide are reporting their lowest levels of job satisfaction in 25 years -- 39% -- according to the annual MetLife Survey of the American Teacher. Among the greatest concerns expressed by the teachers who were polled was increased stress, and principals also reported job dissatisfaction, with 75% of principals saying their jobs are too complex. The survey also revealed that most principals and teachers are unsure whether the Common Core State Standards will improve students' performance."

Adam Lenaarts's insight:

Is this because most teachers still apply old school methodology and this no longer matches the current state of affaires. If Kurzweils Singularity is immenent( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technological_singularity ) then not only teachers will feel the discrepancy betweeen their training/job and societies struggles with exponential technological development. Most teachers/school  don't prepare students for jobs that have not been invented yet...

Liam Michelsohn's curator insight, October 17, 2013 10:43 AM

The wealth of a nation can come from many differnet aspects, jobs land, ecnomy, resoucres, and labor force. In many contries like china and indina they have lots of factorys and factory workers. However what ahppens when the cost of living and transporations go up, should we give workers a pay raise? NO. The answer is to find people who are able to work for cheeper. This lead to the mass influx of mexican factorites and the mass influx of forign workers fleeing to mexico for the jobs and simple life.

It was very interesting to see how even workers form the US were going to mexico in search of jobs becuse ten years ago it was the exact oppisit.

Paige Therien's curator insight, March 1, 12:44 PM

As domestic problems increase in countries where the United States have been previously "setting up shop", institutions are rethinking where they outsource manufacturing to.  It is becoming increasingly more expensive to ship goods from China or Europe.  People of all sorts are turning to Mexico, where the United States already has a good manufacturing foundation, to find new opportunities in many different increasingly competitive (globally) sectors.  This is allowing Mexico to be culturally, economically, and socially closer than ever before to many countries around the world.  This large influx of people from all around the world is definitely welcomed, but is being monitored and managed with great care and strategy in order to ensure that this shift benefits everyone.  Mexico is currently very flexible since it is transitioning into a more first-world country; this gives entrepreneurs a great place to start experimenting and migrants a chance to shape Mexico.

Jess Deady's curator insight, April 17, 7:39 AM

Foreigners on work visas is a huge and broadening event that is happening throughout the world. Most of the people on work visas have migrated from the U.S. and more now than ever, Europe. With dwelling economies, people are being forced to migrate towards the U.S. and Mexico.

The two teachers admit when they started flipping their classrooms they put everything into video form. Now, they’ve taken a step back and realized some things shouldn’t be in lecture form, and therefore shouldn’t be videos either. Instead, the two teachers have embraced what they call mastery learning, with an emphasis on students taking control of their own learning. Instructional videos are an optional part of a bigger move towards asynchronous learning.
