Can Technology Turbo-Charge K-12 Learning? Chan Zuckerberg Is Betting On It

Can Technology Turbo-Charge K-12 Learning? Chan Zuckerberg Is Betting On It | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it

"In its work on education, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) is betting big on personalized learning. This focus sets CZI apart from many foundations piloted by living donors, which have tended to seek changes in school systems, especially by promoting choice and charters. But for the philanthropic organization started by pediatrician Priscilla Chan and her husband, Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, the most exciting possible goal is to revolutionize how kids learn.

"A year ago, the couple hired Jim Shelton—a former deputy secretary of education and Gates Foundation executive—to pilot this work. In that announcement, Zuckerberg conjured a future in which today's children could "learn 100 times more than we learn today" by embracing approaches that allowed every student to "learn in their own way at their own speed in a way that maximizes their potential."

"Since Shelton came on board, CZI's work on personalized learning has evolved rapidly, and now has a number of parts."

Kelly Christopherson's insight:
Game-based learning isn't new but it's employing the strategies of gaming in the classroom that sometimes isn't easily transferrable. Although using games for learning is great, it's using the basis of gaming for learning that offers some great opportunities if teachers are willing to embrace the underlying concepts of gaming - it's open to all, mistakes are important to helping you learn and develop skills, there is a need to be challenged just beyond one's ability to improve, there is fun and frustration in learning a new game, once mastered it's time to move on to a new game, there are rewards for levelling up, it can be played solo or with a collaborative group.

Today, Kids Need To Learn More Than Facts, But To Solve Problems And Innovate

we need to shift from an educational system that values what you can answer to one that values what you can ask and that fosters skills like teamwork, communication and exploration.
Kelly Christopherson's insight:
There is definitely a need to shift what happens in schools and classrooms to focus on collaboration and solving problems. 

"we need to shift from an educational system that values what you can answer to one that values what you can ask and that fosters skills like teamwork, communication and exploration." 

As AI and other automation takes place, schools need to shift from a focus on tests and examinations to work that is develop problem-solving and collaboration. Implementing Design Thinking and Universal Design in classroom planning and development shifts the focus away from separating skills into subjects with little connectivity. The world is connected through various networks while schools continue to impose an artificial separation of subjects.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, June 12, 1:11 PM
John Dewey's philosophy of education and teaching is essential in today's day and age. When presented with problems to solve and engage with actively, humans want to solve them. This has to be done mindfully and thoughtfully.

Following in Dewey, I contend that mind is a verb in teaching. Teaching is minding and attending to the learning of students like a good gardner does with their garden. It is a caring for children and learning.

Effective Teacher Professional Development | #pdf | #ModernEDU #Coaching #Mentoring

Effective Teacher Professional Development | #pdf | #ModernEDU #Coaching #Mentoring | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it

Teacher professional learning is of increasing interest as one way to support the increasingly complex skills students need to learn in preparation for further education and work in the 21st century. Sophisticated forms of teaching are needed to develop student competencies such as deep mastery of challenging content, critical thinking, complex problem-solving,

 

effective communication and collaboration, and self-direction. In turn, effective professional development (PD) is needed to help teachers learn and refine the pedagogies required to teach these skills. However, research has shown that many PD initiatives appear ineffective in supporting changes in teacher practices and student learning. Accordingly, we set out to discover the features of effective PD.

 

This paper reviews 35 methodologically rigorous studies that have demonstrated a positive link between teacher professional development, teaching practices, and student outcomes. We identify the features of these approaches and offer rich  descriptions of these models to inform those seeking to understand the nature of the initiatives.

Why we need to start paying more attention to IT support in schools - Using Technology Better

Why we need to start paying more attention to IT support in schools - Using Technology Better | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it
When things don’t go to plan with technology in the classroom, educators need to know they can rely on someone to help them out.
Kelly Christopherson's insight:
Technology integration is important for learning. In order for this to happen, a supportive IT department is crucial. Yet, my experience is that there is more demand for integration than support for it to happen successfully. As technology continues to change at a rapid pace, supporting teachers is essential to helping to change classroom practices and having technology that works or someone to support this is critical to sustaining IT use within schools.
