Are We Solving For the Wrong Problems? - Disenthrall

Are We Solving For the Wrong Problems? - Disenthrall | Education, Technology and Storytelling | Scoop.it

We tackle problems every day. Different people solve problems differently. Some tackle them head on, some take a step back and ponder, and some simply react with the first solution that pops into their head. None of these approaches are always right and none of these are always wrong. Different problems call for …

Patricia Stitson's insight:

As a coach for many years I was constantly faced with trying to sort out what the underlying cause was when i student hit a proverbial 'brick wall'.  Sure we could have drilled and drilled at a particular exercise until it 'sunk in' but that usually just resulted in a bored and annoyed student whose morale was waning.  Often we had to take a step back to a place of success and build from there, or take a deeper look at what thought, idea, belief or even emotion was more or less blocking the learning. 

 

Similar to what is pointed out in this article, this process helped the student find their way back through all the minor failures and challenges to the original objective and empowered them to start to formulate their own strategy for getting there.  This empowerment is crucial to successful self-inspired learning.

The Other Brian Whitmer: Instructional Design is Not Interface Design

The Other Brian Whitmer: Instructional Design is Not Interface Design | Education, Technology and Storytelling | Scoop.it
Patricia Stitson's insight:

This same issue has surfaced with my work lately. 

 

For me I am faced with the question of where to strike a balance between interface design that will not DETER the learner from the experience but rather lure them in without confusing them.  Some of the audience I am working with are more mature and thus are not digital natives.  Unlike a millennial that spend lots of time gaming, this demographic is not going to be interested in a challenge of find what rock the nugget of info (gold) is under.  At the same time how do I bump it past boring flat presentation, possibly a bit of assessment type exercises and some forum posting.  Like Brian points out,

 

"It's not about forcing a learner to post at least once in the discussion board in order to get a grade, but it should be about exposing them to the experiences they mightn't pursue on their own that will help them deepen or solidify their understanding. Maybe in a perfect world all learners would see this as part of their successful learning workflow, in which case you could fall back to arguing that instructional design and interface design have the same goal, but that's not the case today."

 

Is this semantics or schematics?  How do we reach towards this when bespoke elearning is not quite there yet?  My thought is that you need to try to embed teaching how a ________(insert noun) needs to think in teaching the skills/understanding of what they need to think about and learn.  Ie, Recently on a NPR story about bee keeping I heard a woman exclaim, you have to learn how to think like a bee...not just about how to be a bee keeper!  Now that really brings some fun elearning to my mind.

This contains a video of an insightful, wait...incite full, speech about what it takes to be a makers, whether it be game designer or set designer by Mythbuster's Adam Savage.

Moreover, it points out that there is plenty of opportunity for informal education online and this is empowering the maker movement. Author Andrew Baxter, a Curricuum Specialist for Enable Education, reminds us of the massive online learning communities that have developed around sharing (teaching) maker skills, music, art, soft skills and even medicine.  He alludes to the fact that the google glass captured surgeries that available by webcast are yet just the tip of the iceburg of what will become possible with this "from my perspective' style video.  Simulations are nice but nothing compared to through the eyes of an expert.

Joseph Thacker 's curator insight, April 14, 6:48 PM

It appears India is constructing a 2,500-mile long fence around its neighboring country Bangladesh. The barbed wire fence may have been built due to that fact India has one of the largest populations in the world and they do not want the struggling people of Bangladesh to enter their country. Also, areas around the fence are becoming dangerous, with more than 1,000 people killed by border patrol and criminals. There are not many jobs in Bangladesh and the people are having trouble finding clean drinkable water. Lastly, the people may be fleeing into India hoping to find work and an improved lifestyle.

What Is A "Curation Collison" & Thanks To 17 Great Curation Teachers On Scoop.it | Education, Technology and Storytelling | Scoop.it

Curation Collisions Create SURPRISE & Surprise Matters
We are OLD even when we are young now. There is no way to remain YOUNG for very long with so much information chasing us. The next generation lives on their phones the one after may be searching the web and emailing as they look through their Google Glass.

Scoop.it CEO @Guillaume Decugismade an interesting offhand suggestion about curation to me a few weeks ago. Guillaume noted how important curation becomes when we slouch toward the point when everything that ever NEEDS to be written has been written.

Guillaume means what I call "rich snippet" curation or content curation where the hand of the curator is present and accounted for. This is the kind of curation many great teacher helped me learn over the past few years - a skill that feels increasingly important in a way that reminds me of how I felt about SEO before there was a new sheriff in town named Navneet Panda.

Being able to peer into the future and generate corporate strategies is a tough feat. Same with generating a company's Future Story (what the future will look like through the actions you are taking today).


While I don't necessarily agree that transmedia storytelling is the answer, what I really do like about this SlideShare piece is its unique take on how science fiction and speculative science can help solve these challenges.


I bet you get a few creative ideas from this piece! Enjoy!

E-Learning Design for Constructive Failure: Unleash an Inner Genius

E-Learning Design for Constructive Failure: Unleash an Inner Genius | Education, Technology and Storytelling | Scoop.it
“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
― Albert Einstein
Patricia Stitson's insight:

This is a point where my decade of experience coaching horseback riding meets my present endeavours in learning technologies.  It also points to the question of what type of 'story of learning' do we create alongside the method of learning we encorporate in our eLearning?  In horseback riding the best rider's story was that they got back up after eating a mouthful of dirt.  

 

I was just listening to John Lasseter talk about working at Pixar vs Hollywood at large.  He related movie making in hollywood to an acrobatic act with no net, ", in fact you actually picture big huge spikes just waiting for you to impale yourself on."  At Pixar not only was there a net but it was filled with huge cushy pillows.  "You cannot learn anything without failure".  We all know the actual larger success of Pixar.  

 

My point is that, the learning we create for learners thus influences their story of learning.  Tony Robbins cautions organizations on creating and owning the right story. Let learning be a confortable space for failure and you will ignite a story in which there is a desire to learn more...not a fear.
