[Slideshare] Digital Learning Futures: Social, Mobile and Personal Technologies

Many of my public presentations have the prefix: Digital Learning Futures, because for me, the future of education and learning will be greatly influenced by digital technologies.

The presentation below was for the ELI 2015 (4th international conference on e-Learning and Distance Education) event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where education and learning professionals from the entire gulf region and beyond came together to discuss the possibilities of future education scenarios.

My argument in my presentation was that social learning, the use of mobile devices, and personal learning environments will all be vitally important components of any future learning ecology. I counselled that technology is not a silver bullet, and cannot solve all the problems education is currently experiencing. Nor can it replace good pedagogy. However, once those concerns are settled I said - technology, especially the personalised, mobile devices student now own - can and often does make a huge difference in how people learn, and can neither dismissed nor omitted from any future pedagogical discourse.

A beautiful graphic on Emotional Intelligence

A beautiful graphic on Emotional Intelligence | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

In the midst of this digital hype instigated by social media and web technologies, much of the concern and discussion emanating from education community is centrally focused on the digital and technical skills required for thriving in a knowledge economy.Unarguably, digitality is an important part of our students' lives and knowing how to handle it is definitely a pressing requirement, but there are also more important areas that students need to attend to in order to maintain a balanced individual growth. One of them is the emotional part.

In their popular report entitled the Learning Curve, Pearson features emotional intelligence among the the top 8 skills the world is looking for. Similarly, in his classic book Emotional Intelligence:Why It Can Matter More Than IQ, psychologist Daniel Goleman provided a convincing account backed up with a variety of scientific studies highlighting the importance of emotional intelligence in our life . To better understand what emotional intelligence is all about and why it deserves much more attention from us, University of Maryland Online MBA has this excellent graphic to share with you.

Are you an Analog or Digital leader? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it


Changing mindsets begins with you! The only mind you can be sure of changing is your own, and the only way that you can demonstrate this mindset change is through your behaviors. If you aspire for your organization to be faster, more innovative, less afraid of failure, it has to begin by you being faster, more involved in innovation and being willing to be the failure role-model. If you won’t try it, why should anyone else who works for you?

Design Thinking o cómo diseñar la escuela del siglo XXI

Design Thinking o cómo diseñar la escuela del siglo XXI | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Se podría traducir el término Design Thinking como Pensamiento de diseño, es decir, de lo que se trata es de pensar como un diseñador para poder desarrollar productos, servicios, estrategias y proyectos.

Este término se remonta al año 2008 cuando Tim Brown, profesor de la escuela de ingeniería de la Universidad de Stanford publicó un artículo en la prestigiosa Harvard Business Review en el que planteó por primera vez el concepto Design Thinking. De hecho, en palabras de Tim Brown el Design Thinking es una disciplina que usa la sensibilidad y los métodos de los diseñadores para hacer coincidir las necesidades de las personas con lo que es tecnológicamente factible y con lo que una estrategia viable de negocios puede convertir en valor para el cliente y en una oportunidad para el mercado.

Tal fue el impacto de este artículo que empresas como Amazon o Apple han tenido desde entonces muy en cuenta en su estrategia empresarial. Y, ¿por qué? Pues porque el Design Thinking se vertebra en tres pilares básicos:

  • Personas (usabilidad)
  • Tecnología (herramientas)
  • Negocio (viabilidad)

How should we measure student learning? Five keys to comprehensive assessment

How should we measure student learning? Five keys to comprehensive assessment | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Assessment is at the heart of education: Teachers and parents use test scores to gauge a student's academic strengths and weaknesses, communities rely on these scores to judge the quality of their educational system, and state and federal lawmakers use these same metrics to determine whether public schools are up to scratch.

Testing forms the bedrock of educational assessment and represents a commitment to high academic standards and school accountability. You can't know where you're going unless you know where you are. But when the financial and emotional stakes associated with standardized tests are disproportionately high, this laudable goal gets distorted. Teachers begin teaching to the test simply to raise scores, often at the expense of more meaningful learning activities. And when the tests are too narrow a measure or aren't properly aligned to standards, they provide little concrete information that teachers and schools can use to improve teaching and learning for individual students.

Herramientas para trabajar en la nube

Herramientas para trabajar en la nube | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

La educación en la nube es una de las tendencias educativas más claras de los últimos meses. Pero, ¿qué es exactamente esta nube? Son un conjunto de herramientas y aplicaciones on line a las que se puede acceder desde cualquier dispositivo (ordenador, tableta, smartphone…) siempre que esté conectado a Internet, e independientemente del sistema operativo con el que funcione.

Esto significa que no es necesario instalar ningún programa en el equipo, y que tampoco se guarda ningún documento en su memoria interna. Para ello, además de un equipo y conexión a Internet, es necesario acceder a un servicio en la nube gratuito o de pago. Los más sencillos son servicios web que ofrecen almacenamiento gratuito para guardar documentos y compartirlos; otros, añaden la posibilidad de editar esos ficheros y crear documentos de texto, tablas de datos o presentaciones en la propia plataforma. También se consideran servicios en la nube los repositorios que permiten las consultas on line de contenidos de texto o multimedia como vídeos, libros electrónicos o presentaciones.Para disfrutar de las ventajas de la nube se puede optar por servicios genéricos (e incluso gratuitos), o por otros específicamente desarrollados para el entorno educativo, que permiten sacar el máximo partido a este tipo de recursos.

12 ways to teach Critical Thinking Skills

12 ways to teach Critical Thinking Skills | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Here’s a question to critically think about: What exactly are critical thinking skills, anyways? It’s more than just thinking clearly or rationally—it’s about thinking independently.

The idea with critically thinking about something is to formulate your own opinions and draw your own conclusions about it, regardless of outside influence. It’s also about the mental discipline of analysis, and being able to see the connections between ideas.

Critical thinking is a crucial skill for life, and every teacher is looking for more ways to integrate it into the classroom.

The video below is the first in a series featured on YouTube. The series was produced by Bridge8 and is probably one of the best explanations of critical thinking out there.

3 important shifts in Education

3 important shifts in Education | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
“We’re still in the first minutes of the first day of the Internet revolution.” Scott Cook

The above quote resonates with me strongly, because we are currently living in a culture that not only seems to have endless answers, but endless questions, both which are subject to change. I think of some of the things that we used to talk about in schools, now shifting to something else. For example, I remember once working with my students talking about the importance of staying anonymous online, and now we have shifted to working with our students to develop a positive digital footprint where they actually can be found. I often wonder “what’s next?” Our answers now, may shift, and we need to be able to be adaptable to a constantly changing landscape.

In education, I have noticed some trends not necessarily changing, but shifting in thought. In learning, we have to be open to change and take what we know and think about how to move forward. Curriculum should not be written in ink anymore, but on a google doc. It seems to only make more sense as we continue to move forward in both school and education.

[Infographic] The 7 attributes of highly effective curated posts | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Good content curators don’t just select and share: they add value by providing context and meaning. Luckily, if you have the right content discovery tools, you’re likely to have automated a good part of the content curation work. And as you’re probably reading a lot of content on your niche anyway, applying judgement to select the most relevant content will come easy. Not only that but you’ll be very likely to have something to add to that piece of content: a perspective, an objection, a way to complete the orignal author’s opinion or analysis. Add it as an insight to ensure your readers see the value you bring them as a trusted thought leader in your industry. And by mixing your own thoughts with excerpts from the original article, you’ll also add more value to search engines and get SEO benefits for your website as explained by SEO expert Jayson DeMers. The SEO benefits of content curation in general and of value-adding curated posts in particular have also been demonstrated by the experiment Bruce Clay ran comparing various content curation methods’ performance in Google rankings. Another data point is that more than 40% of traffic to Scoop.it pages come from search engines.

[Infographic] eLearning visually explained for teachers

[Infographic] eLearning visually explained for teachers | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Electronic Learning, conventionally known as e-learning, is a digitally mediated type of learning. The standard way of lesson delivery in e-learning was and mostly still is computer and hence the traditional definition of e-Learning as computer mediated learning. However, now with the huge advancement in web technologies and the emergence of several other devices that have more or less the same computational functionalities as computers (e.g tablets, Chromebooks, hand-held devices…etc), e-learning now can be facilitated through different devices.

e-Learning has several advantages. Some of which , according to Virtual College, include: it is cost effective and saves time, it is available anytime/anywhere with Internet connection, and it makes it easy to track course progress.As a form of digital learning, e-learning is divided into two main categories: synchronous e-learning (involves real-time interaction between participants) and asynchronous e-learning (participants can take the course at their own time and pace). Check out the visual below to learn more about what e-learning is all about and how it can be implemented in different learning settings.

Learners are learning differently; are you changing the way you train and support them?

Learners are learning differently; are you changing the way you train and support them? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

A large majority (87%) of American adult internet users say the internet has improved their ability to learn new things. This figure includes just over half (53%) who say it has improved their ability to learn new things “a lot” and 34% who say it has improved this “somewhat.” Just 13% see the internet and cell phones having little or no impact in this area. 


My own analysis  of the Top 100 Tools for Learning surveys over the last 8 years has shown that people are using the Internet to learn in many ways that differ substantially from traditional training approaches. Here are some of the key features`:

Edumorfosis's insight:

Aunque la memorización de conocimientos declarativos (definiciones, eventos, fechas) es importante, tenemos que entender que los estudiantes de hoy necesitan memorizar menos y teorizar su propia práctica profesional y socio-cultural. Estudiar se ha convertido en una suceso aburrido. Pero, aprender en el lugar de trabajo se ha convertido en un proceso cognitivo de orden superior de vital importancia. Estudiar para un examen responde a un modelo pedagógico del pasado en el que se requería el máximo del contenido posible alojado en el cerebro al momento de contestar una prueba. En cambio, hoy día el aprendiz genera el conocimiento cuando se sumerge en experiencias de la vida real para solucionar problemas que aún no han sido planteados, manejar conflictos complejos, crear nuevos productos de utilidad colectiva, trabajar con otras personas, generar definiciones compartidas con significados distribuidos y pronosticar fenómenos emergentes.

Content chunking is an important step in the process of developing an eLearning course. As an instructional designer, it’s important to break long strings of information into understandable chunks and delete extraneous data. When the content is divided into small chunks, learners find it easy to understand. Content chunking also helps improve their working memory. It helps the learners retain longer and recall it effectively.

Let us now see 5 examples of efficient content chunking.

Natural Human Roles in Learning: Zooming in the Classroom

Natural Human Roles in Learning: Zooming in the Classroom | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

What you see in the diagram above is a circle. This deceptively simple circle represents the range of human learning, from the specific to the general.


What is important to notice is that there are only three basic teaching roles; the "specialist," the "generalist," and the "naturalist." More so, the polar opposite of the "naturalist" is where no learning of any kind occurs.


How can this be? First, the roles.


Let me start by telling you what these three roles represent. In the simplest sense, they represent how much detail the teacher offers, from an abundance of very small details to the broadest of generalizations. In the middle, of course, is the balance of these two.

The more applications for a technology, the more interest there is for it. Virtual reality start as something that was only to be used in entertainment such as video games, then became something that could be used in movies. As virtual reality becomes better it opens more opportunities such as education.

Tell Me A Story: Cutting edge Scenario Based eLearning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
If you take a look at one example of effective eLearning, such as Lifesaver, you’ll become aware quickly of the principles that make it an example of great scenario based eLearning. First, it puts you straight into the vortex of the action. It has a cast that you soon get involved with. It then dumps you right in the middle of a big old problem and makes you the one who has to take the decisions, with the clock ticking down, oh, and if you make the wrong decision, someone dies! So no pressure then. And it does this all through an unfolding scenario of events, told in the context of everyday life, in settings and with characters you are familiar with. The point is to provide you with a safe environment to practice responding to given situations. If you make a mistake, no one really dies – this time. Instead you get to practice again until you get it right. The premise is, learn from mistakes, and be ready with the right actions to apply to a real life event. Elearning doesn’t get much better than that. So what makes ‘scenario’ based eLearning?
