Tomorrow's Learning Today: 7 Shifts To Create A Classroom Of The Future - TeachThought

Tomorrow's Learning Today: 7 Shifts To Create A Classroom Of The Future - TeachThought | elearning | Scoop.it
Below are some ideas that are truly transformational–not that they haven’t been said before. It’s not this article that’s transformational, but the ideas themselves. These ideas aren’t just buzzwords or trendy edu-jargon but the kind of substance with the potential for lasting change.

And the best part? This is stuff that’s available not tomorrow with ten grand in classroom funding and 12 hours of summer PD, but today. Utopian visions of learning are tempting, if for no other reason than they absolve us of accountability to create it right now, leading to nebulous romanticizing about how powerful learning could be if we just did more of X and Y.

But therein lies the rub: Tomorrow’s learning is already available, and below are 7 of the most compelling and powerful trends, concepts, and resources that represent its promise.

añada su visión ...Cualquier inversión es buena siempre y cuando sea en educación, considero que es la clave para tener un mundo mejor. Cada día la tecnología avanza a pasos agigantados y si la educación no avanza a la par, tenemos grandes problemas...

This captures the shift we are trying to make in my district. I think this might make an excellent focus for a seminar

Community Engagement and Boundary-Spanning Roles at Research Universities

Community Engagement and Boundary-Spanning Roles at Research Universities | elearning | Scoop.it

Abstract

Over the past decade, community engagement has emerged as an important priority among many colleges and universities. This study employs a multi-case study design to examine boundary spanning practices of research universities that have adopted a community engagement agenda. A model is advanced to conceptualize spanning behaviors and to inform practice and future research.

 

The authors:

" our analysis is unique in that it deconstructs the roles of various boundary spanning actors, and thus reveals how conflicts can occur in relation to differences in task roles and distance the community or university. While there is extensive writing and growing research on university-community partnerships (e.g., Amey, Brown, & Sandmann, 2002; Community-Campus Partnerships for Health, 1998; Jacoby, 2003; Maurrasse, 2001; and many more), boundary-spanning roles have not been conceptualized in such a detailed way as the present study. Our analysis helps practitioners consider how individual identities, skill sets, and distance to university/community may contribute to successful or unsuccessful boundary spanning efforts. Practically speaking, this knowledge may help practitioners create role differentiation strategies in order to develop more effective engagement practices both internally and externally. Such strategies may help leaders better mitigate conflicts with communities they serve and among spanners themselves."
