Los MOOC en la crisis de la Educación Universitaria. Docencia, diseño y aprendizaje

Los MOOC en la crisis de la Educación Universitaria. Docencia, diseño y aprendizaje | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

En el nacimiento de la Sociedad del Conocimiento hemos asistido a distintas crisis: La de las finanzas, la de los medios de comunicación, la del entretenimiento. En todas ellas concurren las circunstancias de que el sector afectado se ha visto transformado desde la situación anterior a la situación posterior en sus aspectos más básicos, el soporte material, las operaciones que se producen y los actores implicados, con sus roles, han cambiado sustancialmente en función de cómo se representa y cómo se procesa el conocimiento, de las operaciones que se pueden realizar y de cómo estas afectan a la actividad, generando un nuevo conocimiento y unas nuevas posibilidades. La producción, los servicios y los propios procesos que se utilizan son más eficientes y más singularizados. Pero a estos hechos y a estas posibilidades con ser potentes no se añaden factores relevantes de la crisis más allá de lo que los mismos cambios originan. Esto es así incluso para la Educación en general. En este caso como en los otros citados, aun siendo transcendentes los cambios que se producen y que constituyen la crisis, son provocados por los procesos propios de la sociedad del conocimiento, por sí mismos o interactuando con otros. Así hablamos de un nuevo paradigma educativo donde cambia una educación basada en estándares (unidad de lugar, situación, edad) por otra basada en logros individuales, porque la tecnología permite un tratamiento personalizado y una potente analítica de la información que se puede aplicar a/en los procesos de enseñanza y de aprendizaje.

Miguel Zapata-Ros's curator insight, August 14, 2014 2:13 PM

Con esto no estamos diciendo que estos procesos sean inevitables. Según la teoría de Christensen (2012 y 2013) hay un núcleo extensible (la parte del sistema que no aumenta el costo con la extensión) y la parte no extensible, en la que el coste es función de la extensión (ahí es donde reside el valor propio del servicio o del negocio). En este trabajo hacemos énfasis en que se trata de determinar y de cuidar la parte de nuestro sistema que no es extensible, la que constituye el valor genuino. Y concluiremos afirmando que las instituciones tendrán que responder a esta supuesta democratización de la educación con una apuesta mayor. Eso significa incorporar eficiente y rigurosamente teorías pedagógicas que han estado probadas en otros entornos pero que deben desarrollarse y tienen mucho que decir, aunque sea distinto, en estos ámbitos.

9 characteristics of 21st Century Learning

9 characteristics of 21st Century Learning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The label of “21st Century learning” is vague, and is an idea that we here at TeachThought like to take a swing at as often as possible, including:

  • weighing the magic of technology with its incredible cost and complexity
  • underscoring the potential for well thought-out instructional design
  • considering the considerable potential of social media platforms against its apparent divergence from academic learning

Office Mix now supports integration with LMS | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Office Mix is a free add-in for PowerPoint that makes it easy to author and share interactive online lessons. Educators can easily add audio and video narration, real-time inking, screen recordings, quizzes and polls within PowerPoint. Lessons can be viewed in practically any browser on any device. Through support of LTI, we have made it easy for educators to embed mixes into all major Learning Management Systems (LMSs), including Canvas, Engrade, Blackboard, Haiku, Moodle, Brightspace, EDUonGo and Schoology. Additionally, the LTI adoption enables McGraw-Hill Education (MHE) to utilize Office Mix to provide a custom teaching experience for adopters of the next generation of MHE products. Cengage Learning will be releasing an Introductory Computing MindTap pilot integrating Office Mix for fall 2015 classes. After Office Mix has been set up to work with an LMS via LTI, educators can easily embed interactive mixes, created by themselves or the community, within their LMS as assignments or assessments. LTI also seamlessly authenticates students, and their grades are automatically passed back to the LMS grade book.

How to review the effectiveness of your learning and development function

How to review the effectiveness of your learning and development function | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Traditionally, Learning and Development teams have taken an inward-looking approach to measuring their effectiveness. They have analysed the things that matter to them, such as feedback on training courses, time spent on training courses, numbers of attendees on courses and so on. The problem in gathering this data, is the fact that it has very little relevance to the business. Why? Because the business wants to know the impact its investment in learning and development is having on business outcomes, not how successful a training course has been for those who attended it.

So how do you figure out the effectiveness of your Learning and Development function? To what extent are you able to demonstrate that you are adopting modernised learning approaches that deliver the outcomes the business needs: improved productivity, engagement; revenue and agility?

Constantly emerging social media that are changing our ways of getting information also have a big impact on how we learn and what is more important, on how our students want to learn. Technology becomes a constant in their lives, unfortunately also for social interactions. That’s why I’ve decided to dig inside Computer supported collaborative learning (CSCL) theory and present a possible tool that supports creative thinking and collaboration capabilities. But first some basics about CSCL.

ID and Other Reflections: Social Learning Cannot be a Bolt-On Strategy

ID and Other Reflections: Social Learning Cannot be a Bolt-On Strategy | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

I recently wrote about the challenges of integrating sociallearning in the workplace. Even as I was mulling over the topic and browsing through Dion Hinchcliffe's posts for insights on social business, I had a moment of epiphany. Social Learning and social business go hand in hand. To facilitate social learning, an organization has to become a social business first. When we talk about social learning, we are talking about the fundamental organizational structure of a business. A truly social business encapsulates the necessary preconditions for social learning -- transparent, supportive and collaborative. An organization cannot bolt on social learning just as it cannot bolt on a few Facebook and Twitter-like tools and call itself a social business. A hierarchical, permission-driven organization will find it very difficult to get employees to collaborate or cooperate voluntarily. In such cultural settings, social learning naturally fails in spite of state of the art enterprise collaboration platforms and other technology. Most organizations are still missing the cultural aspect of it. The current failure of organizations to integrate social learning stems from their bolt-on strategy.

Assessing by Presentation

Assessing by Presentation | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Assessing by presentations mirrors real life situations. In today’s world, most positions require high performance and effective presentation skills. Being good at presenting is an art that can be developed from a very early age.

Technology may facilitate instruction and learning, but who’s doing the learning? In many cases, teachers are more active in the classroom than the students. Teaching certainly provides many opportunities to learn. Why not flip the classroom by allowing students to do the teaching?

Diferencias constructivistas entre el Conectivismo y el Aprendizaje Ubicuo

Diferencias constructivistas entre el Conectivismo y el Aprendizaje Ubicuo | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
George Siemens y Stephen Downes, 2004, desarrollaron la teoría del Conectivismo integrando conceptos de la neurociencia, la teoría de redes y la teoría del caos, donde los individuos transforman las organizaciones sociales en procesos de aprendizaje formales y no formales a través de herramientas virtuales que abren las puertas a la comunicación y la creatividad. Sostienen que el conocimiento no se centra en las mentes de los individuos sino en las relaciones que estos realizan durante la creación del conocimiento, las herramientas que utilizan y las condiciones de los materiales del entorno; por lo que, las teorías de aprendizaje deben dejar de organizarse por categorías y jerarquías para pasar a ser redes y ecologías.

9 tips to enhance active listening skills in eLearning

9 tips to enhance active listening skills in eLearning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.”, Ernest Hemingway once said. More than a half-century later, little has changed; indeed, most people don’t listen, despite listening being one of the most important human skills. The way we listen can have a major impact not only on our personal relationships, but also on our professional lives and job performance.

A good listener has the ability to better understand and process information; a great listener has the ability to use this information to negotiate, influence, and avoid misunderstandings and conflicts. But what does it take to become a great listener? Only one thing, actually: Practicing and improving your active listening skills.

Having active listening skills means that you are able to communicate effectively and create deeper connections with others. Active listening is an essential quality all learners should have, as it can greatly improve their communication skills and help them build strong relationships. In this article, I'll delve into the basics of active listening that every eLearning professional should know in order to develop eLearning courses that enhance learners' active listening skills, so that you will be able to help your learners to engage both mentally and emotionally in every conversation, and achieve long-term success in their personal and professional lives.

[Infografía] El uso de Redes Sociales como estrategia pedagógica

[Infografía] El uso de Redes Sociales como estrategia pedagógica | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Las Redes Sociales nos han abierto nuevos caminos y se han convertido en una parte importante de nuestra vida para muchos de nosotros. Sus usos son muy diversos: entretenimiento, comunicación, búsqueda de información, canales para compartir contenidos, elementos para construir Branding, herramientas de marketing, etc.

Uno de los posibles usos de las redes sociales, quizá pasa un poco inadvertido frente al resto de posibilidades, es el de emplearlas para realizar una estratega pedagógica. Así que también se convierten en excelentes herramientas de apoyo a profesores, padres y docentes que sepan como emplearlas correctamente en la enseñanza de pequeños y jóvenes.

La infografía que compartimos hoy con todos vosotros, un trabajo del sitio Ixousart, nos enseña como aprovechar las redes sociales para la pedagogía, su título es “El uso de las Redes Sociales como Estrategia Pedagógica“.

Loosening group boundaries

Loosening group boundaries | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
In the network era, the quality of our professional connections becomes a prime source of our influence and value. However, our network connections do not negate the influence of our close family and team ties, nor do they replace the influence of our larger work groups in our organizations and institutions. We need to understand how our various strong and loose social ties can help us learn, get work done, and be better citizens. We need to balance our perspectives, sometimes focused on complex work requiring not just our attention but trust that is developed over time. But this is not enough, we also have to get away from our work, families, and teams and look at the bigger picture, capturing glimpses of new ideas from a diverse social network.

Los estudiantes que se sientan en nuestras aulas universitarias nacieron con las computadoras, acceden a la información desarrollando procesos paralelos y múltiples, buscan en la Red al azar sin seguir un patrón único. No van a la biblioteca porque no es necesario, lo encuentran en Internet. Manejan el celular sin que nadie le enseñara cómo hacerlo, descargan aplicaciones que emplean sin relación alguna con la actividad pedagógica. Encuentran más motivante usar las tecnologías fuera de la universidad que vincularla a esta. Todos tienen cuentas en Facebook y muchos en Whastapp.

Encouraging Critical Thinking through Blended Learning: Is that possible? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
earning is not always just a transfer of information. The process of learning also has to engage the learner and promote critical thinking as well. Most learning experts describe Critical Thinking as a mental activity that involves high quality and high level of thinking. It enhances the problem solving skills of the learner and encourages accurate decision making capabilities. Most learning experts support the benefits of a learning program which enhances critical learning – especially in the area of corporate learning. The value of critical thinking does not change according to different industry verticals – it is required to deliver quality learning in almost all subjects or types of content.

La evaluación, como todo el mundo sabe, es un proceso crítico en el entramado del diseño de instrucción, pues afecta a todos los elementos del mismo, desde la organización del tiempo hasta los materiales empleados, pasando por los objetivos, los contenidos, las explicaciones del profesor, las preguntas de los alumnos. En fin, todo elemento que, dispuesto en el espacio (virtual también) y en el tiempo (sean procesos síncronos o asíncronos), se disponga de un determinado modo para promover un determinado aprendizaje que, a la postre, es lo que se trata de lograr.

Learning is not a Mechanism

Learning is not a Mechanism | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Digital pedagogy is not equivalent to teachers using digital tools. Rather, digital pedagogy demands that we think critically about our tools, demands that we reflect actively upon our own practice. So, digital pedagogy means not just drinking the Kool-Aid, but putting the Kool-Aid under a microscope. When I lead workshops for teachers interested in developing digital skills, I say right up front that I have little interest in teaching teachers or learners how to use the technologies they’ll use in classrooms for the next three years. I am much more interested in working with teachers and learners to develop the literacies that will help them use and evaluate the educational tools they’ll be using in ten or twenty years. Often, this means knowing when and how to put tools down, as much as it means knowing when and how to take them up.

[Free Course] Computational Thinking for Educators

[Free Course] Computational Thinking for Educators | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Computational Thinking (CT) is a problem solving process that includes a number of characteristics and dispositions. CT is essential to the development of computer applications, but it can also be used to support problem solving across all disciplines, including the humanities, math, and science. Students who learn CT across the curriculum can begin to see a relationship between academic subjects, as well as between life inside and outside of the classroom.

This course provides an opportunity to experience some of the elements of CT, including:

  • Decomposition: Breaking down data, processes, or problems into smaller, manageable parts
  • Pattern Recognition: Observing patterns, trends, and regularities in data
  • Abstraction: Identifying the general principles that generate these patterns
  • Algorithm Design: Developing the step by step instructions for solving this and similar problems
