What is learning?

What is learning? | EduInfo | Scoop.it

"A number of new 'theories' are emerging in the digital age, as people attempt to provide explanations for what is happening with learning. Some argue that learning is changing as a direct result of technology. Learners are indeed consuming, creating, organising and sharing a lot more content than they ever previously did. The exponential rise in user generated content on social media sites bears testament to this, and when these kind of activities spill over into the formal learning domain, previously well established learning theories are challenged. We now see the emergence of a number of new theories that attempt to explain learning in the 21st Century. These include heutagogy, paragogy, connectivism and rhizomatic learning. One of the characteristics of learning through digital media is the ability to crowd source content, ideas and artefacts, and to promote and participate in global discussions. That's why I want to ask the questions: What
is learning? Does it differ from learning prior to the advent of global communications technology? Does learning now require new explanatory frameworks?"

 

These questions have really got me thinking.....

Computers have altered children's ability to imagine

Computers have altered children's ability to imagine | EduInfo | Scoop.it

WiFi, its existence, the control of it and access to it is of deep concern to children. Analysis shows that children see it as almost elemental, as immutable as the weather, literally part of the landscape. It’s represented as omnipresent, over-arching and essential to human connection and collaboration, with many of the artworks conveying a sense of wonder and amazement at the power and potential of WiFi.

The Next Stage of Personalised Learning: a virtual tutor for every student

The Next Stage of Personalised Learning: a virtual tutor for every student | EduInfo | Scoop.it
I do not believe that any machine could be as engaging or inspiring as a good teacher. Instead, human teachers could be supported by AI tutors, so that they have more time to focus on what they do best – creating positive classroom environments, planning exciting lessons, and developing richer more personal connections with each individual student.

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, October 31, 2016 12:50 PM
Very interesting. I've been thinking for a while about how AI could help teachers with feedback. There are always issues with teacher time regarding how much personalised feedback students get, what if the feedback on some of each student's extra writing and speaking (recorded) practice was provided by AI? More practice, more feedback and more 'data' for a teacher to see on each student. 

Would this work? Would it be good? Who knows?! But it seems interesting to me. 
Mauricio Ramírez's curator insight, October 31, 2016 9:17 PM
"What if we could give every student their own virtual tutor?", this is such a profound question that drove me to think about not only my students' necessities, but my own as an English facilitator who sometimes finds it quite difficult to guide learners, give them timely feedback and prepare classes and tests. Thus, having a virtual tutor would not only be ideal, but useful in order to help students practice and therefore improve their language skills; however, my only concern up to this point would be whether Artifitial Intelligence (AI) might replace teachers, and although the author emphasized on the idea that "with AI, we might see driverless cars but we will not see teacherless classrooms.", I still have my doubts going on in my head. Worth reading anyway! ;)

Students are not the only ones looking for more at-home learning: parents and teachers are also on board. Eighty-eight percent of parents and 84 percent of teachers are interested in having more at-home digital content available to supplement what's being taught in school. The increasingly digital behaviors of students, teachers, and parents are expanding the way learning occurs. Understanding and positioning ahead of that behavioral shift will be critical in helping educational organizations succeed in the digital future.
