Education technology is spreading fast, but there’s no recipe for success

Education technology is spreading fast, but there’s no recipe for success | Education & Technology News | Scoop.it
This article was written by Nichole Dobo Many people are seeking the “secret sauce” for digital learning. As educators expand the use of education technology, they often face a tricky balance. These tools offer the possibility for innovation – trying something new in a quest to improve teaching and learning. But technology isn’t cheap, and the risk of failure looms. To assure success, many educators try to find and follow a recipe for digital learning. But many crucial ingredients can’t be found in a case study about “best practices,” said Julie Evans, the CEO of Project Tomorrow, a nonprofit organization that advocates …

Like other aspects of teaching, how teachers and students use computers, software, and social media is a broad conversation. We use words like education and technology as if they mean something they do not, school and digital tools respectively.

To educate means to lead etymologically. That means teaching is leading and helping students figure out what is appropriate use of tools. Technology is forming wisdom over time so the craftsperson (teacher) can have a conversation with, about, and through their tools. They grow to understand how tools limit and expand their teaching.
Jillian Schaibly's curator insight, July 25, 5:08 PM
How do you implement technology without trying it out first? Using technology or trying out new things can be expensive for school, so finding something that can be tested first is the best option. This resource talks about how there is no right way for digital learning, but there are best practices by some teacher which can help. This could help a principal by having teachers collaborate with the technology they use and share and teach other staff on what they know.

The Future of Social Learning: A novel approach to Connectivism

The Future of Social Learning: A novel approach to Connectivism | Education & Technology News | Scoop.it

This is an interesting paper seeking to extend and apply connectivism. If I were picky I would complain about the interpretation of connectivism (for example: I don't think it's really true that "Connectivism largely treats technology as a tool independent from its context and its users." But no matter. I like the way the authors define three pillars of the learning model (learning process, learninmg content and learning environment). And I think this is a classic implementation of ARRFF: "(a) find information for hands-on assembly and installation of IoT devices; (b) agglomerate and visualize data for student-initiated reasoning on local energy challenges with the aid of mathematics and data science; (b) simulate, and examine different strategies for reduced energy consumption and improved classroom comfort; (c) discuss and collaborate on strategies using the online platform."

Students Say They Are Not as Tech Savvy as Educators Assume | Education & Technology News | Scoop.it

Students say that in order for high schools and colleges to better serve them, it is important to challenge the assumption that students are digital natives. This starts with educating professors about the technological diversity in their classrooms and providing students with workshops and engaging videos to help them learn without shame.

George Siemens: Preparing for the Digital Universitiy

George Siemens:  Preparing for the Digital Universitiy | Education & Technology News | Scoop.it

In the field of educational technology 2012 was touted as the year of the Massive Open online course (mooc). While the number of

MOOC offerings have since rapidly increased, the research in this space has been lagging. To help facilitate the development of research and examine the potential of MOOCs in education the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation supported the massive open online course (MOOC) research initiative (MRI).

Athabasca University, long a pioneer in distance education, was selected as the principal investigator for the grant. The MOOC conversation was largely occurring in the popular media and was focused on the technologies and the large numbers of learners enrolling. Thesheer scale of numbers of students led to bold proclamations of education disruption and a sector on the verge of systemic change. However, from the perspective of 2015, these statements appear increasingly erroneous as MOOCs have proven to be simply an additional learning opportunity instead of a direct challenge to higher education itself. Many of the issues confronting early MOOC development and offerings could have been reduced if greater consideration was given to research literature in learning sciences and technology enabled learning. This report is the final component of the MRI grant.

Additional work in the MRI grant includes research  reports, conference, and a special issue of the International Review of Research in open and Distributed learning. The articles presented in this report provide an overview of research literature in:

Distance educationBlended learningOnline learningCredentialingMOOC researchFuture learning technology infrastructures


It is our intent that these reports will serve to introduce academics, administrators, and students to the rich history of technology in education with a particular emphasis of the importance of the human factors: social interaction, well-designed learning experiences, participatory pedagogy, supportive teaching presence, and effective techniques for using technology to support learning. The world is digitizing and higher education is not immune to this transition. The trend is well underway and seems to be accelerating as top universities create departments and senior leadership positions to explore processes of innovation within the academy.

It is our somewhat axiomatic assessment that in order to understand how we should design and develop learning for the future, we need to first take a look at what we already know. Any scientific enterprise that runs forward on only new technology, ignoring the landscape of existing knowledge, will be sub-optimal and likely fail. To build a strong future of digital learning in the academy, we must first take stock of what we know and what has been well researched.

During the process of completing this report, it became clear to us that a society or academic organization is required to facilitate the advancement and adoption of digital learning research. Important areas in need of exploration include faculty development, organizational change, innovative practices and new institutional models, effectiveness of teaching and learning activities, the student experience, increasing success for all students, and state and provincial policies, strategies, and funding models. To address this need, we invite interested academics, administrators, government and industry to contact us to discuss the formation of an organization to advocate for a collaborative and research informed approach to digital learning.

I think I'd follow-up on Beth's comments by pointing out that they are comparing "feature phones" and "smartphones" - they are all cell phones.  Semantics aside, it is an important distinction, and one that may be overlooked in the assumption that the student has access to a smartphone because they seem so easy to obtain now - a cultural issue or economic one?

Europe struggles with digital education

Europe struggles with digital education | Education & Technology News | Scoop.it
European higher education remains too conservative to adapt to technological innovations, said a Commission High Level Group on the Modernisation of Higher Education in its report published last week (22 October).

The group, which was launched in 2012 to examine such challenges, makes 15 recommendations to EU member states about how to integrate digital teaching and learning methods in their educational curricula.

Current learning systems are reluctant to leave behind conventional classroom methods and restructure the way universities and schools operate. Teachers do not have the necessary professional training to cope with new ways of schooling. The institutions themselves are poorly equipped with new technologies in order to deliver high quality, online education.

“Although Europe is starting to make progress, it is still lagging behind the US in using new technologies in our universities and colleges,” said Mary McAleese, the former President of Ireland, and chair of the High Level Group. “We should capitalise on the strengths we have, such as the wide use of ECTS [European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System] credits to ensure that digital learning in Europe is recognised, accredited and quality assured.”

Students are also reluctant to enroll in online degree programs, as an alternative to traditional, classroom-based ones, because many online courses do not offer credits towards obtaining a diploma. In fact, one of the group's recommendations to EU countries is that they recognise e-learning as a legitimate part of the educational system, and formalise it.

“ In the last ten years, technology has changed the way we work and communicate with others — and it’s also changed how we interact in the classroom. In fact, some educators argue that technology can improve the classroom by eliminating the need for a physical one, and allow students to learn remotely, from wherever they do their best work. While it’s still too early to know if this is the most effective way to teach, it’s important to stay-to-update on these innovations in education and see what we can learn from them.

Caminhos para inovar a Educação

Caminhos para inovar a Educação | Education & Technology News | Scoop.it

A revolução educacional passa por um pouco de tecnologia, muita capacitação de professores e muita gestão. Já não é nenhuma novidade que nosso modelo escolar e universitário predominante — que já tem quase 200 anos com poucas modificações — está ultrapassado e é responsável por salas de aulas apinhadas de estudantes desmotivados e sujeitos a evasão escolar, além de professores submetidos a uma rotina repetitiva de transmissão de informações, muitas vezes desatualizadas.Há aqueles que defendam essa escola tradicional, caracterizada pela padronização e disciplina, mas de forma geral a insatisfação com o modelo educacional corrente é regra, não exceção.A causa disso? Em minha opinião, todos nós já fomos estudantes e sofremos de alguma forma com as “deformidades” da escola tradicional, seja na educação básica ou no ensino universitário. Talvez a maior delas seja exatamente a padronização.Em um vídeo que já circula pela internet há algum tempo, o rapper americano Richard Williams conhecido como Prince EA, coloca o sistema educacional e sua obsessão pela padronização em julgamento, fazendo uso de uma frase dita por Albert Einstein. A frase, uma crítica profunda à padronização de qualquer tipo de avaliação ou julgamento, descreve que ao se julgar um peixe pela sua capacidade de subir em árvores, este passará a vida inteira pensando que é estúpido.

# 20 slides mostrate per 20 secondi ciascuna per un totale di 6 minuti e 40 secondi;

# le immagini avanzano automaticament;

# le PKN o PechaKucha Nights sono incontri creativi in cui si condividono idee, lavori, pensieri utilizzando presentazioni in stile PechaKucha
