At The Padagogy Wheel Core: Immersive Learning Targets Engagement

At The Padagogy Wheel Core: Immersive Learning Targets Engagement | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it

The new version of the Padagogy Wheel tackles a major question that is lurking in the back of everyone’s mind. If it’s not … it should be. It’s about the problem of motivation in education. How do we motivate students, teachers, parents, and everyone else to get excited about learning? How do you stay motivated? What works and what doesn’t?”

6 Must-Have Skills for Leading from the Middle | Leading Effectively: Official Blog of the Center for Creative Leadership

6 Must-Have Skills for Leading from the Middle | Leading Effectively: Official Blog of the Center for Creative Leadership | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it

If you are a mid-to-senior level manager – a leader of managers - you lead in what CCL calls “the middle zone.” You operate up and down the organizational hierarchy, as well as across functions and silos. To achieve results, you must effectively manage people and processes.

Middle-zone roles can also be some of the most difficult. Leaders who live and work in the middle often grapple with competing business priorities, competing vested interests and competing centers of influence and power. They feel pressure from above and blame from below. Influencing peers, navigating partnerships and finessing politics are also on the daily agenda.

So, how can you adjust and thrive in the middle zone?  Here are six crucial skills to master.

The Connection Economy – The One to Rule Them All

The Connection Economy – The One to Rule Them All | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it

Over the course of the last few years, and with the emergence (AND convergence) of social networking tools for business, cloud computing,big data and social analytics (amongst several other buzzwords and hyped concepts), we are starting to see that growing trend of shaping up one other key concept from today’s business world: our own economy.

 

It seems to be it’s starting to take control of our collective mindset, of our conversations, of our interests and attention, to the point where we are beginning to have no more time than to talk about just that: economy. And that’s understandable, seeing the current financial econoclypse we are going through, and still with plenty more to come! But what if there would be something else? What would happen if all of a sudden we would be able to switch from our traditional concept of economy into something much more meaningful, purposeful, refreshing and rather inspiring altogether?

 

How about if we would start focusing quite a lot more on the Connection Economy instead, to eventually have a bigger impact beyond just focusing on the money, the power and the greed?

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, June 19, 2013 12:37 AM

"Is technology making us stupid—or smarter than we’ve ever been? Author Nicholas Carr memorably made the case for the former in his 2010 book The Shallows: What The Internet Is Doing To Our Brains. This fall we’ll have a rejoinder of sorts from writer Clive Thompson, with his book Smarter Than You Think: How Technology Is Changing Our Minds For The Better.

My own take: technology can make us smarter or stupider, and we need to develop a set of principles to guide our everyday behavior, making sure that tech is improving and not impeding our mental processes. Today I want to propose one such principle, in response to the important question: What kind of information do we need to have stored in our heads, and what kind can we leave “in the cloud,” to be accessed as necessary?"

"...if you view the Internet as a virtual space populated by human actors, then you need a human subject approach to ethics, with informed consent a big issue. If, on the other hand, you see the Internet as an accumulation of texts, then your concern is with data protection, copyright and intellectual property rights. One practical example of this is that giving the real name of a data source is typically unethical behaviour in the Social Sciences, while failing to give the real name of a data source is typically unethical behaviour in the Arts."

Future Models of Learning - Debate

Future Models of Learning - Debate | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it

Does new technology conflict with or complement established teaching and learning? What is the impact on the teaching profession as we have traditionally known it? Will the power of the internet, with new innovations such as Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), create an unstoppable ‘avalanche’ of education reform, or are these reforms a false revolution? Can the value of face-to-face quality learning and student-teacher relationships ever really be questioned, at any level of education? Will the class room, lecture theatre, and traditional notion of education space – schools and universities – be usurped by a screen, online and distance learning, or alternative spaces such as the workplace, home, or concert-hall?


Via Nik Peachey, Nalya Ovshieva, Elena Manou, Jim Lerman
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

It should complement. Art and the French language provide a word for what should happen: bricolage. Bricolage is the blending of two materials, in this case traditional and new pedagogy, in ways that might infuse them. A philosophical approach might to use Gadamer and Vico to discuss sensus communis which is the common sense of a community based on wisdom and creativity.

 

The format is interesting as it is similar to a Ethnograhic Futures Research format gone viral.
