Cathy Davidson: "“What’s clear is that it is time to move beyond the initial experimental stages and start thinking of mobile as a platform for organizational performance. … The time to get on top of mobile is now, as the market has matured to the point where we can see real benefits on a pragmatic basis.”
"...we shouldn't stick with "flipping" the classroom. We should use the technologies available to "make it do cartwheels....That requires not the passive receiving of content from a teacher (the flipping model doesn't change that) but students being actively engaged in the production, transmission, and broadcasting of knowledge--co-teaching, co-learning, co-researching."
CNN's SCHOOLS OF THOUGHT - video clip of CNN interview with Greg Green, local school principal.
" I’m a principal at Clintondale High, a financially challenged school near Detroit.... Everyone from politicians to parents admit that our educational system isn’t working, and we’re all screaming for change. But no one gives advice on what changes are needed to improve education. The time has come to realize that the problem isn’t simply lack of effort or money, but the misalignment of our school structure. To watch this happen every day, where it is your responsibility to try to provide the very best you can for the students, is beyond frustrating. It’s heartbreaking.
Our staff agreed that our failure rates were not good. But how do you go about addressing these issues with no money, no additional resources and no clear solution from the experts who already know the system is broken?
How do you get your staff on board with change you want to implement, but no one else has ever tried it on a mass scale? How do you get your students excited about learning when they’ve never shown much interest before?
Sal is asked to make some predictions for the year 2060...
* The Classroom- in 10 years rows and passive model will disappear->active discovery-building, exploring, creating
*Credentials are now seat-time based and are Fixed while achievement is variable In the future->To an achievement-based model -you decide how to learn things, seat time will be variable but achievement will be fixed high standard- it will be about your portfolio of achievements ( what you have done)
-employers will not care about GPA but what you have done
*The role of teacher will change from lecturer to coach or mentor. Teachers will interact individually, taking walls down so students may interact with several teachers- learning also peer to peer- teaching profession will be more prestigious
* because costs will go down because of internet, he believes we will have 99% global literacy- A global meritocracy
(Sounds great- teachers who get respect in a presigious career and everybody everywhere with opportunity to learn on an equal basis- wish it would be so but sounds too good to be true..kh)
James Cross explores some practical classroom techniques and ideas for how schools and teachers might bring online video learning to life in their classrooms.
This article in SecEd provides a good introduction for teachers who may be considering using online video in their teaching, but are not sure where to start. James outlines some useful approaches, strategies and clearly explains the benefits of online video.
The concept of the flipped classroom seems to be gaining ever increasing momentum within the field of education generally. Much of this revolves around the use of video to deliver input / lectures to students who can then come to class and do the more engaging and practical part of their work with some teacher support.
