Kenneth Mikkelsen's comment, April 10, 2013 7:57 PM
Ivon, I think in an increasingly transparent world the key issue is integrity. You need to establish yourself and your reputation on a solid and honest foundation. Becoming the "go-to-person" in the future is all about relevance and leading an open dialogue.
Ivon Prefontaine's comment, April 10, 2013 8:00 PM
Ken, I like your last two words: open dialogue. It reminds me of work by David Bohm.

Hybrid Pedagogy: A Digital Journal of Teaching & Technology | Articles

Hybrid Pedagogy: A Digital Journal of Teaching & Technology | Articles | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
Hybrid Pedagogy is an academic and networked journal of teaching and technology that combines the strands of critical and digital pedagogy to arrive at the best social and civil uses of technology and digital media in education.

Via Karen Bonanno, John Parker
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

This is the integration we may need. There is also a recognition of culture playing a role in the development of online education. That is good. What we need is a conversation with lots of questions. What works? What does not?

Online Teacher Emergency

Online Teacher Emergency | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
When an online teacher encounters eighth graders who don't know much about online technologies, she has to find out what the ARE good at.
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

We assume that our students all like digital technology. That is like assuming that all so-called 'digital immigrants' do not have the same or better skills with technology than the students. This is not as simple as the article makes it out to be. What is the right tool? That is an essential question. We need to teach skills and allow students to be able to use a variety of tools because they are adaptable with their skills.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 8, 2013 4:44 PM

Are universities mostly sorting devices to separate smart and hard-working high school students from their less-able fellows so that employers can more easily identify them? Are universities factories for the dissemination of job skills? Are universities mostly boot camps for adulthood, where young people learn how to drink moderately, fornicate meaningfully and hand things in on time?

Everything I Know About Social Media I Learned In Kindergarten

Former kindergarten teacher Angela Maiers offers social media lessons we can all learn from kindergarten students.
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

This is a great way to approach all learning. Ken Robinson spoke about the stamping out of creativity as children move through school. Yes, young children can be creative and see the world through eyes of wonder or, as Buddhists say: "With a beginner's mind'" and we need that in our learners. We also need to make sure the tool is the right one for the child, the task, the learning, and the context. It is not always a digital tool.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

The three most powerful words in the English language are "I love you" and a close second is "I don't know." We create vulnerablity with both sentences and begin to defeat the 'cult of ignorance'. We can no longer be experts in all things and sometimes we are not in those things we claim expertise in, but we cling to the delusion we can.

for the love of learning: The power of curation | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

I like practical, pragmatic posts. This one begins by pointing out students need help getting organized. I know too many educators who simply function as if technology is the end-all-to-be-all without considering the learning side of it. Makes me more fully understand Wenger when he said, "Learning and teaching are not opposites."

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 6, 2013 12:32 AM

European OER initiatives are based (largely) on the traditional view of instructor using OER as content for teaching

  • Most leaders of initiatives view that their content is used by teachers (school teachers, HE teachers, adult educators).
  • There is some emphasis on students or lifelong learners using content (prioritisation given to ‘prospective students’ – emphasises marketisation motivation).
  • Though –responses suggested that future emphasis should be on communities.
  • The view was that OER users were mainly ‘teachers’ – with some divided views focusing on ‘students’ or ‘projects’ as key users.

The use of digital technology is one form of being in the world. It is not the only way. If we only use a hammer, then everything begins to look like a nail.

There is no such thing as a tool, and that is what technology is, that is one-size-fits-all. We need to ask ourselves and others new and more mindful questions. My experience is the use of technology is faddish. What is the latest new toy? This is an approach that is frustrating for the faux educational leadership of our times and for classroom teachers. What if we talked and listened mindfully and attentively to each other?

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

"So here's a radical assertion: When assessing and teaching children, the time has more than come for education to embrace the whole child. This approach calls for schools and educators to curtail the deficit model and replace it with the abundance model."  That is an interesting concept, but what do we mean 'it is time'? The time is long past. We should have been doing this years and generations ago.
