How Educational Technologies Improve Learning

How Educational Technologies Improve Learning | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
Learn how technology can be used in schools to improve instruction, simplify a teacher’s work, or smooth operational challenges.

Via Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa)
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Digital technologies do improve learning. That should not be at question. The question should be when does it improve learning? Is this the right context and situation for this technology?

21st Century Learning

This is the new buzz world this year in our schools. But, is it really new or is it just integrating the computer lab into the classroom? Or is it doing what some of the best teachers already do? T...

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Being as tech savvy as students means knowing when we do not know something and being open about it. Student voice needs to be taken into consideration along with the teacher voice in healthy dialogue. It is not all about technology. It is using it well and knowing when to use it well.

27 ways to become a better 21st century teacher. Many interesting aspects, and I believe many teachers already follow many of these. However, some reminders are always useful and inspirational! I particularly like the suggestion to participate in conference calls around the world with your class. Or perhaps follow a MOOC, either with you students or to develop your own teaching further?

The 21st-Century Digital Learner

The 21st-Century Digital Learner | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it

After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.

Choice is important. The more I read Marc Prensky the more I think he makes sense in many respects and some of his ideas are workable in our schools and broader learning contexts.

Just as speaking is the outcome of listening, so writing is the outcome of reading, not the other way round. Listening to the student should also include "listening" to their writing. ie., analyse what they are saying and how they are doing it.  When students evaluate their own work, the teacher should listen and guide them to ways of improving it, whether it be punctuation, paragraphing, spelling, or word or subject knowledge.  This is how we bring students on board and empower them to learn. 

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:49 PM

Listening to students has two aspects; listening to what they say orally, and 'listening' to their writing which is only another way of talking, only through a code. Just as learning to speak is tied closely to listening to what is said and being exposed to words that help one to think better, so writing is the same  and relies on reading "or listening" to what others say and how they say it to express clear meaning. The two subjects, reading and writing, are closlely intertwined yet we compartmentalize them in the literacy curriculum. An example of adults thinking they know what is best for children.

Interesting, in other ways this could also be seen as framing learning as a constant performance of assessment. Where do you draw the line ?

Education vs Learning - What Exactly is the Difference? - EdTechReview™ (ETR)

Education vs Learning - What Exactly is the Difference? - EdTechReview™ (ETR) | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
Surely learning and formal education are not entirely the same thing? But what exactly is the difference?

Via Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa) , Aki Puustinen, Suvi Salo
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

There are two intertwined definitions of education and only one is included here. Educare is leading students out of child. Educere is allowing students to gain control over their learning and realizing they have support when needed. We have eliminated the latter replacing it with the instrumental version called learning which is what School is about.

Solving the Innovation Alignment Challenge With an Ecosystem Approach | Office of Innovation and Improvement | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it

“The lack of innovation in education is not due to a lack of creativity, but the misalignment of student and educator need to the market supply of innovations.” That’s the guiding premise of Innovate NYC Schools, a 2011 i3 Development grantee that is using technology to increase the degree of alignment and making students and teachers integral to the change process. The project is furthering the development and evaluation of the “Education Innovation Ecosystem,” a network of NYC schools, partner districts, solution developers, and investors that is helping to meet the STEM-related learning challenges of middle and high school students.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

This is written from an economic perspective. Ecosystems are not economies. They are natural and organic, which is kind of what the author is trying to get at. This requires a local grasp of what is to be done.
