The Questions We Start With - Keep Learning

The Questions We Start With - Keep Learning | HE design | Scoop.it
I help people with problems; it’s my job and also my nature to do so. When my helping is in the context of using technology in learning, I have been looking for a way of being part of the solution, well before being involved in the problems. At the root of this wayfinding is the call that Jesse Stommel offers in Critical Pedagogy: a definition: ...

Circular Product Design

Circular Product Design | HE design | Scoop.it
The term “circular economy" denotes an industrial system that is, by design and intention, restorative, using resources either in a bio-cycle or in a techno-cycle – with all technical resources designed for multiple use cycles, at high quality. It is considered as a more sustainable alternative to the current “linear economy” and has recently gained the attention of governments, NGO’s, researchers and increasingly, large companies. Powered by renewable energy, a circular economy can be fully sustainable from an ecological perspective. From the viewpoint of business, it also holds promise, as value is maintained for longer and a zero-growth scenario is avoided. However, unlocking this potential requires shifts in business models, changes in supply chain management, and new notions of ownership. Also, to fit a circular economy, products require redesign (e.g. to be more easily upgradable) and additional systemic components (e.g. take-back services) – which in turn raises the question how consumers perceive and appreciate the new value proposition. The Chair for Circular Product Design (CPD) is active in this new and dynamic field.
Nicola Parkin's insight:

This idea of circular design could easily be applied to the  topic or course as a 'product' - with attention to its short and long iterative change cycles, agility AND sustainability.

I discovered ThingLink while teaching one of my online art classes.  It is a great tool for any blended learning environment, but was extremely useful for my 100% online class.  Students were able to annotate images to provide commentary on symbolism, artist intent, and historical context on the precise areas of the image where the comments were relevant.

Great to trouble 'frameworks'. We need to see, but we also need to see the lens we are seeing with, try a new lens, make a new lens, try to see without a lens, know when we need a lens, and what lens if appropriate, and recognise lenses for what they are.

Vanderbilt University

 

"Metacognition is, put simply, thinking about one’s thinking.  More precisely, it refers to the processes used to plan, monitor, and assess one’s understanding and performance. Metacognition includes a critical awareness of a) one’s thinking and learning and b) oneself as a thinker and learner.


Metacognitive practices increase students’ abilities to transfer or adapt their learning to new contexts and tasks."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 25, 2014 7:05 PM

Emotional intelligence and learning how to learn might be the two most important teaching work we do for children. It is about connecting with what is important in healthy ways and understanding learning more completely. We can never do this completely, but we should make the effort.
