Rebooting your memory

Rebooting your memory | Good Pedagogy | Scoop.it
After millions of years of remembering what matters, is technology changing the way memory works?
Andreas Kuswara's insight:

Subjects were also less likely to remember something when they knew they could look it up online later.

 

but ...

 

''Your brain doesn't get full - the permutations of connectivity are almost infinite,'' he says. ''The more you learn, the more you can learn. More things connect to other aspects of your memory and that makes you more skilled at storing and pulling them out.''


''If you're going to be successful in a profession, you need to collect a lot of information,'' ... ''If you don't have readily accessible information in your head but just try to get it from other sources, it's going to be difficult for it to lead to creative thought.''

 

 

I basically don't like memorizing, but maybe i should.

Staying Relevant (comic)

Staying Relevant (comic) | Good Pedagogy | Scoop.it
The Official Dilbert Website featuring Scott Adams Dilbert strips, animation, mashups and more starring Dilbert, Dogbert, Wally, The Pointy Haired Boss, Alice, Asok, Dogbert's New Ruling Class and more.
Andreas Kuswara's insight:

“Staying Relevant” It’s a challenge for all educators as well; we get it, technology is not everything, and education is not just about technology, even education technology is not just about technology. However, technology is also not just an irrelevant object in the corner of our classroom; technology has affordances it’s offering, and along with social take up of a technology, that piece of technology can drive changes to people’s perception, expectations, habits; including our students’. Some have big impacts, other have smaller impacts. Some propagate faster, other slower.

 

Finding the right technology that helps our teaching and our students’ learning is important, crucial even; we can't rule out nor postpone using technology to stay relevant.

The newcomer smartphones challenging Apple and Samsung

For most people, smartphones are synonymous with only a handful of companies.
Andreas Kuswara's insight:

"The key here is that there is nothing inherent in the technologies being implemented by Apple or Samsung that can’t be matched by other companies willing to accept lower margins to compete on cost."

 

now you might ask, why is this post appear in a scoop about pedagogy? it's a note for anyone who is educating future business owner, worker, and politicial. this article only show one of the rule of the game that might not always work anymore, or at least not as obvious as it used to be. should we change the way we teach our students? or change in what we are teaching them? or both? so that they become a different player in the new economy.

Sir Ken Robinson: What you cannot miss in the classroom.

Sir Ken Robinson, renowned in the field of education for his valuable contributions, expressed his view on the relationship between education and technology....
Andreas Kuswara's insight:

Sir Ken suggested that digital technology can be used to radically individualized learning since each student learn differently, how digital technology can enhance education experience; this is done without diminishing teacher's role; if the teacher is teaching, which is the enablement of learning, then that role can't be replaced anyway by technology. I think this view is a good reminder, not just in the K12 but I personally think in HE as well. To those engaging in designing or inducing technology into their teaching practices, try looking on those aspect, and see what can come up.

 

PS: About one third at the end of this video is rather specific to the company's product.

this is definitly an interesting conversation (1hr 30m webinar from EDUCAUSE.edu) about how technology influence education in general, and for a big part of it talks about MOOC, its various models and implications to education in general and higher ed. So if you can dig out 1h 30m from your busy life, IMHO interesting talk.

Taking university teaching seriously

Taking university teaching seriously | Good Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Andreas Kuswara's insight:

sounds like treading slightly near the political side of things, which is not my comfortable space, but interesting when the speaker noted that while we, educators, claimed to be teaching to prepare students for the profession, but not many educators come about into their profession of teaching through structured-institution-driven preparation...

 

is 'learning to teach' different than learning any other things? although i am sure not all university in such situation, but it seems many do.

New Pedagogies in Our Connected World (Interview with Prof Steve Wheeler)

New Pedagogies in Our Connected World (Interview with Prof Steve Wheeler) | Good Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Via Ana Cristina Pratas
Andreas Kuswara's insight:

"The implications are massive," says Steve. Like many futurists and learning theoreticians he believes hierarchies are dying. “We have exhausted and moved on from taxonomies. The bottom-up folksonomy has been explored, and we are now entering the rhizonomy, the un-organization (of which MOOCs are an example), chaotic, non-rule-based learning that happens regardless of organization.”

 

an interesting read indeed.

wd like more definition and explanation about exactly what these new pedagogies are- truly different or just using different modes? #smartlearing

Andreas Kuswara's comment, July 18, 2013 1:34 AM
Of course these are changes or development or progresses that we are facing in education and technology in general, but IMHO they don't necessarily correlate, although one can influence the other.

e.g. the development of voice/gesture interfaces, is not driven by, nor drive the take up of participatory, social, community learning mode. They just happen to coincide with one another. I don't even think gesture interface can promote/encourage participatory/social/community learning mode. The use of keyboard can be sufficient to allow all of that. Of course there is some specific scenario, if “participatory” is understood as being immersive, and 3D holographic come into the picture, then we probably can't interact efficiently if we still use keyboard and mouse, thus gesture interface is needed. But the existence of such specific cases can’t justify generalization of the correlation.

I’m not sure about machine generated content, if it’s the automated curation that another human prepared (e.g. we subscribed to feed and classify them, or some algorithm somewhere silently look at what we read, and based on that pull what it thinks relevant to us and feed us), I would not label any of those as “machine generated”, we can say “machine curated” if we wish. The role of the machine simply as a matchmaker between a consumer (human) with the product (produced by other human), the machine enabled the consumption processes in the scale that is beyond our imagination before, but not actually generate it. there could be more spectacular examples of machine automating some or all processes to serve information to our plates.

So I agree with each of the trends independently, but not sure about putting them together as if they have correlation; however, there is a possibility (of course) to take advantage of the new development in technology and apply it in both old and new approach to learning then come up with a niche interesting innovation. But I think that the old pedagogies won't be going anywhere, although it can mutate into lots of niche variations.

Impact to teacher education: If we jump both feet to the “new pedagogy” and neglect to properly get our heads around the old as much as the new, we might disadvantage our students, as we know that "no one size fits all", not even the so called new pedagogies. IMHO pedagogy is interesting, where we can combine the ancient with the recent.
Ruth Obadia's curator insight, August 14, 2013 3:51 PM

New pedagogies are needed to align with the reality that our future visions are rapidly becoming our present” asserts Steve. “Our old ways of thinking will only make the brokenness of education and learning worse. We have to change, and change fast.”

Why the MOOC cannot trump the campus

Why the MOOC cannot trump the campus | Good Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Andreas Kuswara's insight:

i think it's a good article, helping us to step back and look at a bigger picture, since we have been having MOOC so close to our face, it's a good new perspective.

 

and to think about the sense of place of campus and MOOCs, each offer different (although overlapping) set of affordances. the constant discussion as if one will obliterate the other is rather nonsensical IMHO. Alhtough some university might also want to ask, since not all university are university, some are just doing a subset of what a university does, and that subset which they choose to focus on, might be the subset that coincide with MOOC. then they either try to steer it, or be trampled under it.

 

without looking or worry too much on the survival of individual institution, i think generally the society can be benefited with the trends... or not??!

A Simple Guide To 4 Complex Learning Theories - Infographic

A Simple Guide To 4 Complex Learning Theories - Infographic | Good Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Do you know the actual theories of learning? A learning theory is an attempt to describe how people learn, helping us understand this inherently complex process.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas
Andreas Kuswara's insight:

I ‘m not a big fan of mapping learning theories against time, i think even in the digital age, or space age we still need behaviourism approach; and although we might lack of documented literature to support the claim, but even in medieval age there could have been connectivism learning approach used. We just become more aware of the various learning approach that is possible, and can better map what suitable for what and when, rather than just choosing one ‘best’ approach, as no one size fits all. and i probably won't use a terminal word such as "complete" as if there is no more to be discovered or constructed afterwards.

 

But this could be a somewhat useful reference.

Ontario Today | Getting an education on-line | Good Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Andreas Kuswara's insight:

This is a very useful talk, and great comments from the callers; to look at what MOOC is, so far.

 

Curious, if it's just connecting people, would not the community such as Google+ Communities work, people can join in and out any time, people can jump in and ask questions etc. so Google+ Community plus Google Drive where files can be pluck into can already become a MOOC. but then why the "C" is called a "course"? why not rename it Massive Open Online Community? we would miss the notion of an existance of "pedagogy". So.. maybe if we haven't really clear on the pedagogy, then it can't really be called as a "Course".

 

MOOC is an experiment i agree on that, what are we trying to improve? (at the end is to improve learning, i hope) the connection between peers? the access to materials? .. or something else.

 

It's almost like everyone have their "version" of MOOC concept; if anything, it could be an indicator on how frustrated people are with current education system. probably.

 

Excited to see when MOOC reaching maturity.

"Why did Bezos buys a newspaper"

Catalyst Mag

Andreas Kuswara's insight:

I know it's not exactly about pedagogy, but as i did this before, it's facinating for me to read a piece about a person's life from childhood to today, and thinking is that one person a coincidence? or what can we learn from his/her story that might improve the way we educate (formally or informally). 

 

So with that justification, this article resides here under the banner of pedagogy.

Students Find Ways To Hack School-Issued iPads Within A Week

Students Find Ways To Hack School-Issued iPads Within A Week | Good Pedagogy | Scoop.it
i do hope that school administrators and their IT people think things through before starting to deploy futile policies and make attempts; it's not good enough to just give it a go and then say later, that they have expected it will happen. especially if then they then decide to change the policy again to allow what's not allowed to be allowed. i wonder what will the students who had obeyed the regulation think about it? break the law, give it a shoot, ithe law might be changed if enough people doing it. ... that can't be a good education. this is probably one example of good intention bad execution. create a Google+ community or something to talk things through even with external people, to find solution, rather than try to trick and play hide and seek with students or attempt to outsmart them. it's a man-made device, if there is no solution, then work with the company/person who produce it to make one, school don't have to be a pure consumer if they value their own needs.

Assessment in Open Space | by Catherine Cronin

Assessment in Open Space | by Catherine Cronin | Good Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Lecturer, facilitator and academic coordinator of online IT programmes at the National University of Ireland (NUI) Galway
Andreas Kuswara's insight:

Interesting presentation by by Catherine Cronin; thinking about the three spaces: Classroom, Bounded online spaces, Open online spaces when design assignment, and also instruction i think.

 

The teaching/learning process is changing, or at least the space is shifting to a more open space; primarily due to changes in society, social and professional demands, affordance of technology, etc; thus it is unreasonable to expect it won’t sip into learning activities. However, it does not necessarily mean it's a bad thing; but rather it’s simply a different space than what we were in.

 

Educators must also be cautious that we do not stereotyped our students; since not all students have the same level of exposure, access, eagerness and willingness to use technology; not in their social lives and even less for learning. If we recognize this reality, neither too hyped up about technology nor too discouraged by it, technology will start to look like a useful teaching/learning tool.

A University's Offer of Credit for a MOOC Gets No Takers

A University's Offer of Credit for a MOOC Gets No Takers | Good Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Colorado State University-Global Campus made the $89 offer but may have to adjust its thinking, officials say.
Andreas Kuswara's insight:

Curious if university have explored MOOC as a subscription model rather than a one fix-period (semester or whatever) model.

 

subscription gives access, a fix rate subscription to the university's MOOC could be interesting, giving students access to a set of courses, not just one.

 

the credit earned when students completed a set of learning activities, carefully designed and crafted to make use a pre-defined content, and at-time conversation with some form of assessment; 

 

it's almost like turning the university's semester-based education model into a fitness center's subscription model. when you complete a DIY challange, you earn a credit for recognized qualification in a course.
