Next Generation of Online Education: “Learn by Doing” in a Digital World | Education Adds | Scoop.it
Because creativity is so critical to success in the 21st century, alongside online education Morgridge says more schools are exploring the maker movement, using 3D printers and allowing students hands-on interactive experiences to “learn by doing.” “Kids learn when they want to learn,” says Morgridge. “In this maker space, kids are learning deeper because it’s relevant to them. Learning is personalized.”

Spend five minutes in Jussi Hietava’s fourth-grade math class in remote, rural Finland, and you may learn all you need to know about education reform – if you want results, try doing the opposite of what American “education reformers” think we should do in classrooms.


Instead of control, competition, stress, standardized testing, screen-based schools and loosened teacher qualifications, try warmth, collaboration, and highly professionalized, teacher-led encouragement and assessment.


At the University of Eastern Finland’s Normaalikoulu teacher training school in Joensuu, Finland, you can see Hietava’s students enjoying the cutting-edge concept of “personalized learning.”
