The Classroom Is Dead - Bright - Medium

For generations, thinkers have attempted to reimagine the classroom, to improve the classroom, and, of course, to disrupt the classroom, and where has all that gotten us?

Marinhos's curator insight, Today, 5:38 AM

Mais uma vez anunciam a morte da sala de aula. Temo que ela permaneça viva - e por muito tempo - pois continuamos a formar professores que a alimentam. Se as licenciaturas mudarem, haverá uma chance de mudarmos a escola, ainda que ela tenha sala de aulas. Se as licenciaturas permanecerem no passado, não haverá um outro futuro para a escola.

The Digital Writing Process

The Digital Writing Process | EduInfo | Scoop.it

Now, with nearly 20 years of middle and high school teaching behind me, I still respect the writing process approach and its benefits. I also recognize that the nature of writing has changed tremendously over those two decades due to the significant influence of digital tools and sources. Of course, today’s composers still must meet the commonly accepted conventions of the genre in which they are engaged, but our visual digital culture creates different demands than did the primarily print text-based world.

Digital Communication Students's curator insight, December 4, 2015 7:00 AM

"The nature of writing has changed tremendously over those two decades due to the significant influence of digital tools and sources". We completely agree with this phrase. Our way of writing is changing more than we notice. I figure that adults notice this more than young people, because this last group were born with the Internet. Nevertheless, its very important to learn how to write properly, this article provides the tools and the practice we need.

Flipped Learning: Using online video to transform learning :: Nesta

Flipped Learning: Using online video to transform learning :: Nesta | EduInfo | Scoop.it
Digital technology is allowing teachers and learners to explore new approaches to traditional school lessons. The growing availability of online instructional videos creates the opportunity to move the learning of new content to outside of the classroom, freeing up class time for teachers to coach, and students to actively work on developing their own understanding.

Nesta and NFER carried out a study to explore how this approach can work in secondary maths classrooms across the UK, and how teachers use it to change the approaches to learning students take. We saw teachers use the approach to encourage students to take active responsibility for their learning, and for some to use it to accelerate their learning.

This project has produced a research report delving into the effects of Flipped Learning and the conditions needed for success. For those focused on classroom practice, we have also created a research-based practitioner guide to the approach, and a specific how-to guide for using resources from the Khan Academy and linking them to the UK curricula

 

Jim Lerman's insight: Three practical guides to implementing the Flipped Classroom model in secondary level math education. The setting is schools in the U.K., with a particular emphasis on Khan Academy videos -- however, much of the material is generalizable. Be sure to look at each of the 3 different guides.

Nine Things Educators Need to Know About the Brain

Our brains require stimulation and connection to survive and thrive. A brain without connection to other brains and without sufficient challenge will shrink and eventually die—moreover, the modern human brain’s primary environment is our matrix of social relationships.

Physical activity exerts a stimulating influence on the entire brain that keeps it functioning at an optimal level. Exercise has been shown to stimulate the birth of new neurons in the hippocampus and to pump more oxygen through the brain, stimulating capillary growth and frontal-lobe plasticity.

ICTE Solutions Australia's curator insight, December 28, 2015 11:43 PM

In an ICT integrated society, it is important that people are information literate. That means being able to search for and analyse information for their benefits. As websites on the Internet become more popular teachers need to teach their students the right skills and knowledge so that their students are able to become information literate. Any guide therefore, that will assist teachers in doing so is worth using as a resource as reference for both teachers and students to use.

"A lot of people when they think about virtual anything, they do make that comparison of say an Amazon.com versus a Barnes & Nobles. We at Khan Academy never viewed it that way. We view the virtual as something that can empower the physical, that if students can get lectures at their own time and pace, they can get exercises, they can have a programming platform. That doesn’t mean that the classroom gets replaced, the classroom gets liberated. It doesn’t have to be about a lecture anymore, students don’t have to learn at the same time and pace."

In all new technology, a successful implementation in the organization is the key ingredient to success.  A poor implementation does not mean the technology doesn't work.  A systems approach, with many adjustments for why "something failed" or didn't in all cases, will help to fine tune implementations.  Root cause analysis is key to avoiding reacting only to symptoms.  To do this type of analysis during and after implementation requires resources and leadership at the top.
