Tammy Morley's curator insight, January 9, 1:32 AM

Love the idea of flipped learning - so much potential.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, January 20, 12:25 PM

The Flipped Classroom approach is been widely implemented in schools and colleges around the world. It is even considered as one of the greatest achievements of 21st century education.

The concept behind it is to reverse the traditional classroom practices with the aid of technology. Students access the already prepared lecture materials at home, in advance of the class and in the class they engage in structured class activities to work through problems with their teachers’ help, further their knowledge and learn through collaboration with fellow students. For the Flipped model to be successful, teachers before its implementation need to assess whether it is appropriate for their curriculum and students. They need to see if their students will be receptive to the new learning environment and upon implementation and use, teachers should employ effective practices to keep the model functioning successfully.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, January 28, 9:20 PM

Flipped classroom is a classroom in which students view the lecture components of the class at home, then work with the teacher in class on projects and what previously would have been called homework.


What a flipped classroom model does?
• Students watch lectures at home at their own pace, communicating with peers and teaching via online discussions.
• Concept engagement takes place in the classroom with the help of the instructor.

Why Learning Through Social Networks Is The Future

Why Learning Through Social Networks Is The Future | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Students Need Professional Learning Networks, Too

Learning to create, manage and promote a professional learning network (PLN) will soon become, if it’s not already, one of the most necessary and sought after skills for a global citizen, and as such, must become a prominent feature of any school curriculum.

Rethinking Education: Self-Directed Learning Fits the Digital Age

Rethinking Education: Self-Directed Learning Fits the Digital Age | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Is the one-size-fits-all, top-down classroom a misfit for the Digital Age? 

 

Standards-based education is ruining the way educators teach and children learn. Education should not be about teaching to the next level in education and vocation and yet, that is exactly what our current school system is designed to do.

 

Our goal should be to foster a love of learning for learning sake. Learning is not something that we should force onto our children to ensure they go to college and get a good job. True learning is intrinsically motivated and the reward is knowledge.

In the current digital age, does the current standards driven system work any longer?

Amirah Tucker's curator insight, March 10, 8:54 PM

I agree that the school systems should foster a love of learning for learning sake. Learning shouldn't be forced onto our children to ensure they go to college and get a good job, but this is what society and the school system has created for such a long period of time. Today, we are taught that a bachelor's degree is the new high school diploma, and that most employers will look for candidates who have a master's degree or higher. This puts so much pressure on children even at early ages that in the back of their minds, they don't get the chance to love learning or even explore their passions, yet they are forced to choose a career that will help them succeed and pay them well.

Bianca Partyka's curator insight, March 31, 2:39 PM

I also think there is no limit to using technology in the classroom. I think every student learns differently and integrating technology in the classroom can help students find new means of studying that works well for them. I agree that teaching students to test them all the the same level is not the way to go about it. I think that it is "destroying our youth" and causing them to be high anxiety.

Heutagogy and lifelong learning: heutagogical practice and self-determined learning

Heutagogy and lifelong learning: A review of heutagogical practice and self-determined learning...

 

Heutagogy, a form of self-determined learning with practices and principles rooted in andragogy, has recently resurfaced as a learning approach after a decade of limited attention. In a heutagogical approach to teaching and learning, learners are highly autonomous and self-determined and emphasis is placed on development of learner capacity and capability with the goal of producing learners who are well-prepared for the complexities of today’s workplace. The approach has been proposed as a theory for applying to emerging technologies in distance education and for guiding distance education practice and the ways in which distance educators develop and deliver instruction using newer technologies such as social media.

 

Keywords: Lifelong learning; heutagogy; self-determined learning; andragogy; self-directed learning; social media; capability; competency; double-loop learning; reflection
