[eBook] Gigantes de la Educación | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Los gigantes de la educación propone un recorrido por las iniciativas educativas de éxito en: Afganistán, Brasil, Corea del Sur, Cuba, EEUU, Estonia, Etiopía, Hong Kong, Singapur, Venezuela. En el libro podremos encontrar las historias de personas como Farida Hamidi, una maestra afgana que, tras el período talibán y pese a las amenazas de muerte, instauró la primera escuela para niñas de su región; Antonio, “Gibi”, un entrenador que combate con boxeo el absentismo escolar en una favela de Río de Janeiro; Roland Legiardi-Laura, un cineasta neoyorquino que estimula a los adolescentes del Bronx con poesía pedagógica; Birgy Lorenz, una profesora estonia de robótica; Israel Dejene, “Izzy”, un cantante de reggae etíope que transformó un barrio de Addis Abeba con un monopatín, y los antiguos estudiantes del colegio para niños negros de Farmville, Virginia, hoy septuagenarios, que derribaron la doctrina ‘separados pero iguales’ que permitía la segregación racial en las escuelas de Estados Unidos.

50 reasons it's time for smartphones in every classroom

50 reasons it's time for smartphones in every classroom | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
There are many ways to use a smartphone in the classroom, but it continues to be a touchy subject.

Privacy, equity, bandwidth, lesson design, classroom management, theft, bullying, and scores of other legitimate concerns continue to cloud education’s thinking about how to meaningfully integrate technology in the learning process.

To be clear–learning can happen in the absence of technology. Integrated poorly, technology can subdue, distract, stifle, and obscure the kind of personal interactions between learner, content, peer, and performance that lead to learning results.

But increasingly we live in a world where technology is deeply embedded into everything we do. Thinking about it simply in terms of “digital literacy” puts you about 5 years behind the curve. It’s really much more than that–less about being connected, and more about being mobile.

There will be growing pains, and I’m sure educators that have brought in BYOD programs into their school can come up with 50 reasons it won’t work. But most of those 50 are a product of the continued poor fit that exists between schools and communities–the system and the humans it serves.

Vértigo (la velocidad del cambio educativo)… | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
La trayectoria del cambio educativo es la de un campo de estudio poco habituado a los éxitos. Un repaso superficial a su corta historia, el síndrome post-spuknit señala sus comienzos, pone de manifiesto que la frustración ha sido la nota dominante. Considerando las esperanzas que alentó en términos de control del cambio en las instituciones educativas en pos del progreso socioeconómico, estos “prometedores augurios” fueron traicionados por el fracaso que acompañó el despliegue de los grandes proyectos de cambio curricular centro/periferia. La frustración se ha visto, en parte, atemperada con la incorporación de aproximaciones más comprometidas con los aspectos prácticos.

How Google is disrupting the education system

How Google is disrupting the education system | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Google has unveiled plans to use its Squared Online course to disrupt the education system, as it says it is “successfully” merging classroom and online learning styles, something it claims rival tech firms have failed to do.

“Squared Online bridges the gap between the classic classroom experience, where you can’t get scale, and e-learning that can sometimes be a bit dry. It offers a more experiential learning experience,” says Shuvo Saha, director of the Google Digital Academy.

The course focuses on digital marketing and is split into five modules which look at disruption, how tech is changing businesses, the rise of social and mobile, data analytics and insights.

Squared Online originally began as a face-to-face class, but the tech giant soon realised it needed more scale and so decided to create an online interactive classroom. To do this it collaborated with Avado, a professional coaching company.

This allowed it to move from 30 people attending classes three to four times a year to working with up to 400 people at a time, in a much more collaborative way.

3 modern Instructional Designer Skills for creating a cohesive learning experience

3 modern Instructional Designer Skills for creating a cohesive learning experience | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Instructional Designers are trained in the latest cutting edge technologies and are adept at using creative techniques to build custom training solutions. They are known for their passion for learning, along with their writing, researching, and communication skills. They must also be effective project managers and flexible problem solvers. These Instructional Designer skills are necessary but will be insufficient unless they are applied with a “learner first” philosophy, which places the needs of the learner ahead of the presentation of the content in the eLearning course. Here are 3 modern Instructional Designer skills the experts use to focus on the needs of their learner:

Learning in bursts: Microlearning with Social Media

Learning in bursts: Microlearning with Social Media | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Microlearning refers to any pedagogy that encourages learning in short segments, and it can be supported through many platforms. This article focuses on social media platforms for their ability to facilitate connected learning and peer interaction. Faculty members in many universities incorporate microlearning in their classes because it engages students with the subject matter and results in deep learning, encouraging them to connect the subject matter with their everyday lives and the world around them. This improves knowledge retention.

La innovación languidece con el exceso de procedimientos y la falta de experiencia

La innovación languidece con el exceso de procedimientos y la falta de experiencia | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

¿Son útiles los procedimientos cuando hablamos de innovación? Los procedimientos, sean del tipo que sean, nos facilitan la vida y permiten asegurar unos mínimos de calidad evitando errores. Imagínate, por ejemplo, que un equipo médico que vaya a operar a un paciente no revise antes el instrumental (¿habéis visto el hilo de sutura? ups, no tenemos con qué coser la herida) o bien que un piloto de aviones no comprobase el buen funcionamiento de los sistemas del aparato.

 

Ahora bien, a pesar de la utilidad de usar ciertos procedimientos debemos tener claro que no solucionan todos los problemas. De hecho, algunas tareas son incompatibles o se ven perjudicadas cuando intentamos someterlas a procedimientos rígidos y encorsetados. Este es el caso, por ejemplo, de las situaciones en las que debemos explorar y tomar decisiones usando reglas heurísticas, es decir, elaborando hipótesis, evaluando opciones dentro de una amplia madeja de información y generando nuevas soluciones.

By the time technology is offeriing new advantages and tools to support the teachers' work, different platforms to develop courses are appearing to facilitate both teaching and learning. To illustrate, a new way to carry out a course with students is moodle which is an area where different resources and activities are added by the teacher for the students to work and to follow a learning process in a specific matter. The moodle course can be a simple web page in which students have the opportunity to download documents or it also can be a more complex number of activities where learning progresses through interaction. The moodle courses are a valuable tool which permit learning not only to be on-site but it also can be from your house without spending too much time. In this article, the 5 things that teachers have to do to create a moodle course the first time are present to take into account and to do a really good job in the creation of the virtual course where students can find the information and support they need to have a successful learning process.

Redefining the Taxonomy of eLearning

Redefining the Taxonomy of eLearning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
The core job of instructional designers is setting learning objectives that identify the content and activities of a course. Instructional designers have for long fallen back on the celebrated Bloom’s classification system, created for traditional classroom training, to define their learning objectives and create courses that meet the needs of learners.

This classification, which divided the cognitive domain into six categories (a set of nouns or cognitive processes), with each representing a cognitive skill level and activity, continues to be one of the most universally applied methods of organizing thinking skills, from the most basic to higher order levels.

Taking the differing requirements of e-learning and evolving training pedagogies into account, the classification was reconstructed by Loren Anderson, a former student of Bloom in 2001, to incorporate modern approaches of training that reflect current needs. The original classification was revised as follows:

6 ways writing activities make you smarter, according to science

6 ways writing activities make you smarter, according to science | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Multiple studies have shown that writing regularly makes you smarter, as it helps you makes sense of your everyday world and sort through the jumble of your thoughts. Here’s how it can make you smarter, and how to start writing in order to feel the benefits.

 

Ever keep a diary or journal as a child? As an adult, you could well benefit from taking up that habit again. A study followed recently fired engineers, asking them to write about their thoughts and feelings every day. It was found that those that stuck to their writing regime showed less hostility towards their previous employers and that they were coping better with unemployment. What’s more, they found new jobs quicker than those who did not.

How Artificial Intelligence will transform education

How Artificial Intelligence will transform education | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Artificial Intelligence is all around us. From digital assistants like Siri and Alexa to algorithms that suggest what music to listen to on Spotify, AI in its many forms is now part of our everyday lives. And while soon we may all ride around in self-driving cars, the area where AI will most profoundly affect our lives is in education. As with virtual reality, artificial intelligence is still in its early days as an education tool, with minimal adoption in the classroom. But even more so than VR, artificial intelligence could fundamentally change the process of how we learn. Some of the most exciting in-class applications are intelligent tutor systems as well as AI teaching assistants, while outside the classroom AI will enhance the effectiveness of both self-guided as well as MOOC learning platforms (Massive Open Online Course).

Eres más inteligente que la empresa para la que trabajas (Javier Martínez) 

La inteligencia es la cualidad más valorada en un ser humano. Sin embargo, ser inteligente no consiste únicamente en tomar buenas decisiones sino sobre todo, en ser capaz de aprender rápidamente. Las personas son el sistema de gestión del conocimiento más perfecto que existe porque cuentan con un órgano especialmente diseñado para aprender que se llama cerebro mientras las empresas carecen de él. ¿Como funciona nuestro cerebro para organizar el caos y hacernos inteligentes? Ejecuta 2 tareas complejas de manera asombrosa, nos proveer el conocimiento que tiene cada vez que lo necesitamos y almacena lo que aprendemos para cuando lo necesitemos en el futuro. Hasta que las empresas no cuenten con un cerebro capaz de gestionar el conocimiento y aprender, tu seguirás siendo mas inteligente que la empresa para la que trabajas

21st Century Learning: The shift to Digital Content

21st Century Learning: The shift to Digital Content | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
The more students read, the more likely they are to think critically, learn independently and develop a lifelong love of reading. Research shows that using a variety of texts helps students develop strategies to understand, analyze and synthesize information.

Schools are increasing access to digital resources with 21st century school libraries that provide novels, non-fiction on every topic and other materials on demand.

With the growing use of 1:1 solutions, districts leverage the value of their investment with 24/7 access to digital materials. Using the OverDrive digital reading platformwhich is customized for each school or district, students can find eBooks and audiobooks that are aligned with curriculum, develop a love of reading and improve performance in all content areas.
Edumorfosis's insight:

There is nothing innovative about replacing printed content with digital content. Neither is it innovative to flip the magisterial speech of teachers  in the classroom by the speech on digital screens. There will be no educational transformation until the classroom becomes a social laboratory in which students become researchers, debaters, creators, programmers, coders, communicators, presenters and active leaders... #FlipRoles

The myth of the college dropout | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
We found about 94 percent of these U.S. leaders attended college, and about 50 percent attended an elite school. Though almost everyone went to college, elite school attendance varied widely. For instance, only 20.6 percent of House members and 33.8 percent of 30-millionaires attended an elite school, but over 80 percent of Forbes’ most powerful people did. For whatever reason, about twice as many senators – 41 percent – as House members went to elite schools.

For comparison, based on census and college data, we estimate that only about 2 to 5 percent of all U.S. undergraduates went to one of the elite schools in our study. The people from our study attended elite schools at rates well above typical expectations.

The principles of Adult Learning Theory 

The principles of Adult Learning Theory  | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
It has long been understood that adults learn differently from children, and from students of traditional university age. With the recent shift toward continuous education and adult learning, especially in the professional sphere, it has become necessary to quantify these differences more closely.

Instructional design’ is a science-based field that synthesizes pedagogical realities and the neurological facts of learning. Although it can be applied to any learning community, the field has attained widespread recognition due to its role in adult-focused pedagogy.

It builds on and implements existing theories of adult learning in modern, effective ways.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, April 17, 9:15 AM

Es bien sabido que los adultos aprendemos de manera diferente que los niños y que incluso los estudiantes universitarios tradicionales. Sin embargo, también es sabido que poco o nada se hace en la mayoría de programas de educación continua para cambiar la estrategia pedagógica del aula universitaria y por ello, una clase para adultos se diferencia poco de una clase tradicional que se ofrece a jóvenes estudiantes de pregrado o incluso de posgrado. La única diferencia radica en que los estudiantes adultos, en este caso, son los que obligan a cambiar la estrategia, cuando introducen preguntas prácticas en clase. El profesor debería planificar su curso y sus clases de una manera diferente, mucho más enfocado a la solución de problemas y a un aprendizaje muy contextualizado, promoviendo el debate y el aprendizaje entre pares. El resto lo ponen los estudiantes que pueden contribuir al aprendizaje de sus compañeros tanto o más que el profesor mismo.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, April 20, 2:48 PM
"As a general rule, adults need to be involved in planning their instruction and evaluating their results. They should be provided with an environment in which mistakes are safe, expected and a basis for continued learning, in keeping with a problem-centered approach to new ideas."

From Written to Digital: The new literacy

From Written to Digital: The new literacy | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

In today's world, college/university graduates come into contact with a quickly evolving range of technologies and have access to a wealth of information. Students can be more successful after graduation if they are digitally literate—having learned how to identify and create digital solutions, adapt to new tools, and discover more effective and efficient ways of doing things in their fields. The use of technology has transformed every discipline and career, from engineers to doctors to politicians. Yet the traditional academic experience does not prepare many students for the challenges they'll face in these professions today. For instance, young campaign managers must be versed in tasks such as writing a blog and analyzing a social networking initiative, rather than just planning traditional stump speeches and campaign rallies.

This gap between employers' expectations and students' skills is demonstrated by disparities in perceptions of students' readiness to enter the workforce. In a recent study, when students were asked if they felt digitally prepared for work, 44 percent responded that they felt "well-prepared" or "very prepared." In contrast, only 18 percent of surveyed employers responded that students are prepared for entry-level positions.1 Additionally, employers often find digital tools more valuable than traditional tools in evaluating job applicants. In a Hart Research Associates study, employers found electronic portfolios significantly more useful than a college transcript in assessing whether students had the skills necessary to fill a position: 80 percent of employers found electronic portfolios fairly or very useful, but only 45 percent of employers found traditional college transcripts helpful.

El objetivo es construir una comunidad virtual de aprendizaje sobre la base de un modelo de conocimiento que responda adecuadamente a las diferentes necesidades de aprendizaje.

  • Aspectos de clasificación y reutilización de contenidos multimedia desempeñarán un papel fundamental en la mejora del medio ambiente. Debemos pensar y analizar las posibles innovaciones en la formación , y proponer el uso de un marco que integre todas las fuentes de información y ofrecer habilidades prácticas necesarias para satisfacer las nuevas necesidades.
  • Dentro de la organización y estructuración que hablábamos en nuestros recientes artículos , necesitamos también una buena gestión y una excelente comunicación con los demás, ya que de lo contrario de poco servirían nuestro esfuerzo.
  • Necesitaríamos una especie de arquitectura con diferentes capas capas , que consiste en una capa de presentación, una capa de middleware para procesos de transferencia de conocimientos y la gestión del conocimiento, y una capa de publicación de contenido.
