Before the movie comes to true, artificial intelligence is still the technology which could release people from some complex  and repetitive works.

Morgan Travis's curator insight, March 28, 2014 1:36 AM

Teachthought.com report all the important uses that AI may serve in the education industry. All of the 10 points in these are positive.

 

Leaving out the fact that the advancements in AI may have the possibility of taking educators jobs (along with many other jobs). Although this is an advanced idea, it is still a possibility within the future. But do all these positivies outweigh the negative?

Twenty terrible reasons for lecturing

One reason for lecturers not responding to their everyday experience is, I believe, their ignorance of alternatives. If you can't imagine what else you might do than lecture, then it hardly matters what your everyday experience is telling you. Lecturing is taken for granted. Courses are designed around lecture topics. Knowledge is packaged in our heads in one-hour-lecture-sized chunks. Why is this?

The Place of Virtual, Pedagogic and Physical Space in the 21st Century Classroom

The Place of Virtual, Pedagogic and Physical Space in the 21st Century Classroom | Education Matters | Scoop.it
This paper outlines work connected to the successful convergence of digital, pedagogic and physical space. The Sydney Centre for Innovation in Learning (SCIL) has been focusing on the gap that has existed in schools where the physical layout is often stuck in an industrial-era education model, rather than reflecting the possibilities of ICT-enhanced personalised learning. SCIL has been working to create digital spaces so that students can consistently transition from

Lia Goren's curator insight, July 15, 2014 9:41 AM

More recent researchers have been quick to highlight that in a world of rapid technological change, today’s students are demonstrating serious signs of disengagement. As Marc Prensky highlights in ‘Engage Me or Enrage Me – What Today’s Learners Demand’ (Prensky, 2005,p.2):


“Rather than being empowered to choose what they want … and to see what interests them … and to create their own personalized identity – as they are in the rest of their lives – in school, they must eat what they are served. And what they are being served is, for the most part, stale, bland, and almost entirely stuff from the past. Yesterday’s education for tomorrow’s kids.”


The challenge is patently clear – schools have to embrace the ‘megachange’ required and construct new paradigms for learning in the twenty first century world. Mavers made the comment that:


“As digital technologies proliferate and become established in the everyday world of home, work and community, schools are inhabited by young people who are experienced users of a range of media and whose use is characterized by agency and adaptability.” (MAvErS, 2007, P.52) 3The Place of Virtual, Pedagogic and Physical Space in the 21st Century Classroom — Stephen Harris Page 5 No longer is the change a topic for conversation, it is an imperative.


Guski talked about the importance of spatial perception in school architecture, highlighting that ‘we don’t only see an object, we also feel, smell, taste and hear it’. (Guski, 2000, p.2) and Walden picks up that same spatial theme stating that:


“A space is much more than four walls, floor and ceiling. The spatial conditions that should be considered for human well-being include color scheme, lighting, heating, cooling and ventilation, acoustics, smells and furnishings. All these aspects can significantly influence the sense of well-being and readiness to learn and therefore learning performance.” (WALDEN, 2009, P.78)

Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media

Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media | Education Matters | Scoop.it
“In Teaching Crowds, Dron and Anderson introduce a new model for understanding and exploiting the pedagogical potential of Web-based technologies, one that rests on connections — on networks and collectives — rather than on separations. Recognizing that online learning both demands and affords new models of teaching and learning, the authors show how learners can engage with social media platforms to create an unbounded field of emergent connections. These connections empower learners, allowing them to draw from one another’s expertise to formulate and fulfill their own educational goals. In an increasingly networked world, developing such skills will, they argue, better prepare students to become self-directed, lifelong learners.”
