iEARN-Jordan presents seminar on "Building 21st Century Skills through project-based learning" at event held in cooperation with Teachers College at Columbia University.
Khitam A Al-Utaibi's insight:

The workshop was a shift for educators from the familiar model which they are accustomed to in workshops they take in traditional style which depends on the coach as the focus of the workshop, to a more unfamiliar workshop strategy where the learners/trainees are the center in the whole process of this learning experience.

Portal:Novels - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia




The Giver is a novel written by Lois Lowry, April 16, 1993. It is set in a future society which is at first presented as a utopian society and gradually appears more and more dystopian; therefore, it could be considered anti-utopian. The novel follows a boy named Jonas through the twelfth year of his life. The society has eliminated pain and strife by converting to "Sameness", a plan which has also eradicated emotional depth from their lives. Jonas is selected to inherit the position of "Receiver of Memory," the person who stores all the memories of the time before Sameness, in case they are ever needed to aid in decisions that others lack the experience to make. As Jonas receives the memories from the previous receiver—the "Giver"—he discovers how shallow his community's life has become.

Khitam A Al-Utaibi's insight:

What if teaching becomes through novels instead of repetitive and quantitative curriculum?

 

I believe there will be space to broaden students imagination that leads to creativity!

BBC : Making the TV Application Layer Open Source

BBC :  Making the TV Application Layer Open Source | How to Learn in 21st Century | Scoop.it

Building for Connected TV is complicated

 

The TV Application Layer originated from our ambition to run BBC iPlayer, News and Sport applications for Connected TVs on as many different devices as possible.

 

There are hundreds of different devices in the marketplace and they all use slightly different technology to achieve the same result.

 

Having figured out how to build an application on a specific device we want to use this knowledge to build additional applications for that device.

 

Our answer to this challenge is the TV Application Layer (TAL). By abstracting the differences between devices and creating a number of TV-specific graphical building blocks (like carousels, data grids and lists), we provide a platform upon which we can build our applications.

 


Via Nicolas Weil
Khitam A Al-Utaibi's insight:

Wonderful news!!! 

As each new application faced a similar set of device specific challenges, such as media playback, animation or networking, we set about making the TV Application Layer a standalone product that could support our entire Connected TV product needs both now and in the future.

‫ورشة عمل برعاية أكاديمية الملكة رانيا لتدريب المعلمين | Facebook‬

Facebook est un réseau social qui vous relie à des amis, des collègues de travail, des camarades de classe ou d’autres personnes qui ont quelque chose à partager avec vous.
Khitam A Al-Utaibi's insight:
رعاية أكاديمية الملكة رانيا لتدريب المعلمين وبالتعاون مع كلية المعلمين في جامعة كولومبيا قدمت الأنسة ختام العتيبي وهي الممثل الرسمي لآي إيرن – الأردن ندوة متخصصة بعنوان: "بناء مهارات القرن الواحد والعشرين من خلال التعلم المبني على المشروع" وذلك يوم الأحد الموافق 24 آذار 2013 في اكاديمية الملكة رانيا لتدريب المعلمين/مدرج مركز دراسات الشرق الأوسط-جامعة كولومبيا في عمان.
في هذه الورشة، قدمت الآنسة العتيبي ملخصا عن آي إيرن ومركزه التعاوني على الإنترنت الذي من خلاله يتمكن المعلمين في إشراك طلبتهم في التعلم المبني على المشروع من خلال 300 مشروع مع 2 مليون طالب و 40 ألف تربوي في 130 بلد في العالم و 30 لغة. وزعت على المشاركين مرفقات للاستفادة منها وهي السبع خطوات للتعلم المبني على المشروع ونماذج تقييم العرض الشفهي 1 و2 .
تم تقسيم الحضور وكان عددهم 80 تربوي من محافظات مختلفة إلى مجموعات عمل وقد احتوت كل مجموعة على مدير مدرسة ومشرف للعمل مع المعلمين. وزعت على المجموعات أوراق عمل تتضمن شخصيات من عصور إسلامية مختلفة ساهمت في الحضارة الإسلامية ولا زال الإرث الذي خلفته تلك الشخصيات يستفاد منه في كافة المجالات العلمية والإنسانية وحياتنا اليومية. كانت الشخصيات موضع العمل التعاوني في المجموعات هي: حسان بن ثابت وابن الرومي وزرياب وابن الهيثم وابن خلدون حيث تناولت كل مجموعة شخصية واحدة لاستخلاص مساهمتها في الحضارة الإسلاميةوالإرث الذي استفادت منه الأجيال اللاحقة إلى يومنا هذا في مناحي الحياة المختلفة.
قدمت كل مجموعة الشخصية بطريقة تنم عن الابداع في كيف بالامكان تحقيق التعلم من خلال المشاركة مع الأقران والعمل في مجموعات واتخاذ القرارات واختيار من يمثل المجموعة في العرض التقديمي أمام الحضور.
في ختام الورشة اختار الحضور أفضل عرض في ضوء نماذج تقييم العرض الشفهي.
شكل عنصر الزمن تحديا للقيام بأنشطة بناء التعلم المبني على المشروع كاملة. 
النتيجة النهائية: استمتع المشاركين بهذه التجربة وقد أطلقوا العنان لإبداعاتهم في ابتكار أكثر من أسلوب لتقديم مادة البحث وكانت الورشة بشكلها النهائي خروجا عن المالوف الذي اعتاد عليه التربويون في ورشات العمل التي تأخذ النمط التقليدي الذي يعتمد على المدرب كمحور للورشة.

Teachers Embrace Digital Learning Strategies | MindShift

Teachers Embrace Digital Learning Strategies | MindShift | How to Learn in 21st Century | Scoop.it

Today is the second annual Digital Learning Day, designated to bring attention to the benefits of technology for learning. As part of the effort, PBS LearningMedia has released a survey showing that 74 percent of teachers say educational technology benefits their classroom in many ways, including the ability to reinforce and expand content, motivate students, and respond to a variety of learning styles. Given these numbers, and despite increasing access, it’s not surprising that 68 percent of teachers still want more access to technology in the classroom. That number goes up to 75 percent of teachers in low-income schools.

 


Via iEARN-USA
Khitam A Al-Utaibi's insight:

I appreciate teachers' initiating the change with their students in the classrooms. I hear them telling the official systems "WE'RE NOT WAITING FOR YOU TO CHANGE, WE ARE MOVING TOWARDS THE FUTURE WITH OUR STUDENTS".

 

If official education systems did not take qualitative steps towards better 21st century education, soon we will see them in chaos, living dark ages of ignorance, rigidness, and limited minds!
