The Future of Learning: Compelling, Customized, Connected & Competency-Based

There is an emerging opportunity to boost student achievement and improve working for teachers here in the U.S--and a huge opportunity to expand access to quality learning to every young person on earth.

Compelling, customized (I like personalized better, but it's not a "C")' connected, and competency-based lea earning will all be a part of the future of learning. And as learners become more independent and are given an environment that supports freedom of exploration, they will also become more self-determined. Sounds like Heutagogy!

Curious learning | Learning with 'e's | Education and Training | Scoop.it

Sometimes it is as simple as changing the format of a lesson, or altering the layout of a classroom. Sometimes it is to introduce a new approach or problem where students need to take an alternative role. I often create chaos and uncertainty in my lessons. People are not comfortable with this, and will do anything to resolve it into something meaningful. The answer is always, always keep them guessing - and then send them out confused, if you have to.

The solution for engaging children and sustaining their curiosity is to engineer situations where they will be challenged, surprised and yes - kept in a constant state of suspense.

The Thinker Behind “Grit” Says Teachers Need Grit, Too

The Thinker Behind “Grit” Says Teachers Need Grit, Too | Education and Training | Scoop.it

 

What is it that sets people with grit apart? Robertson-Craft and Duckworth describe their key characteristic this way: “Gritty individuals work  diligently towards very challenging, long-term goals, sustaining commitment when confronted with setbacks and adversity.”

 

That sounds like a quality that would be immensely useful in teaching—and many other professions.

Without resiliency, without grit, we cannot recover and move forward learning from mistakes. Teachers need grit. The very work we do calls on us to be resilient and lead students with our words and actions when we make a mistake.

The Hidden Barrier To Learning And What You Can Do About It

The Hidden Barrier To Learning And What You Can Do About It | Education and Training | Scoop.it
There is a hidden barrier that prevents people from learning - emotions. Instructional designers that fail to take into account the emotional barriers learners face will find their courses met with resistance. It’s important to account for emotions in the design process.

Three aspects to consider to lower emotional barriers in e-learning: 

1. Proper expectations

2. Gamification

3. Idea of the benefits

Anna-Liisa Hayward's curator insight, February 3, 7:33 AM

This article looks at the role of emotions in learning and their effect on motivation on e-learning. It could equally be applied to learning in general, a useful little summary.

Education Should Be About Preparing for Tomorrow

Education Should Be About Preparing for Tomorrow | Education and Training | Scoop.it
We need to have higher expectations for ourselves as educators, parents, and policymakers; and we need to have higher expectations for our students -- they will meet the bar wherever it is set.

 

To address this challenge we must revolutionize what we teach, how we teach and how we measure the results. Fundamental and rapid change is necessary -- now, not sometime in the future. Solving our nation's education crisis will take commitment and investment in proven approaches to project-based learning.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 2, 9:14 AM

We have to educate in ways today that prepare students and teachers for the world they live now and tomorrow. We seem to lack the will and the leadership. We have talking head syndrome. The best job an educator could have is to be in the classroom, not be a principal.

While short, it is a great motivational piece to read.  The project-based learning is the way of the new Science standards too.

Dan Pink: How Teachers Can Sell Love of Learning to Students

Dan Pink: How Teachers Can Sell Love of Learning to Students | Education and Training | Scoop.it
As education grows and changes educators have the opportunity to change the way they envision their roles and their classrooms.

 

Jobs in education, Pink said in a recent interview, are all about moving other people, changing their behavior, like getting kids to pay attention in class; getting teens to understand they need to look at their future and to therefore study harder.

 

At the center of all this persuasion is selling: educators are sellers of ideas.

The author of Drive talks about how to use these theories in education! 

Allan Shaw's curator insight, May 21, 3:04 PM

'One of the big topics Pink tackles in his current book is the idea of moving from transactions to transcendence — to making something personal. That’s the best way to “sell” students on what they’re learning, Pink maintains. This has been a recurring theme in education: connecting what’s taught in classrooms to students’ personal lives. But, as evidenced by current school dynamics, that’s not the way the tide is moving.

“Most of our education is heavily, heavily, heavily standardized,” Pink said. ... The idea that you treat everybody the same way is foolish, and yet the headwinds in education are very much toward routines, right answer, standardization.”

Why is it moving this way? One of the reasons, Pink said, is the “appalling” absence of leadership on this issue. “One of the things that I see as an outsider is that so much of education policy seems designed for the convenience of adults rather than the education of children,” he said.... "Why do we have standardized testing? Because it’s unbelievably cheap. If you want to give real evaluations to kids, they have to be personalized, tailored to the kids, at the unit of one. Standardized testing: totally easy, totally cheap, and scales. Convenient for politicians and taxpayers.”

cioccas's curator insight, May 21, 3:07 PM

Think a lot of this is relevant to teaching language to adults too - supporting autonomy, etc.

'An Industry of Mediocrity': Study Criticizes Teacher-Education Programs

'An Industry of Mediocrity': Study Criticizes Teacher-Education Programs | Education and Training | Scoop.it
The effort to rank programs, by the National Council on Teacher Quality and "U.S. News & World Report," has been controversial since it started, in 2011.

 

Colleges of education are "an industry of mediocrity" that churns out unprepared teachers to work in the nation's elementary and secondary schools, according to a highly anticipated report.

 

The report, "Teacher Prep Review," describes the findings of a controversial effort to rate the quality of programs at 1,130 institutions nationwide that prepare about 99 percent of the nation's traditionally trained teachers.

This is one of those issues that feeds back and forth on itself. Colleges of education are an industry of mediocrity, but so is K-12 education. There is a total absence of leadership at the political and bureaucratic levels.

Our Educational Leaders Must Get Aggressive With Technology

Our Educational Leaders Must Get Aggressive With Technology | Education and Training | Scoop.it

Technology and social media continue to dramatically change the way we live and work. Social media in particular can be a great equalizer by enabling job seekers to connect with influencers outside of traditional offline social networks. Given its importance, why isn't this technology playing a stronger role in the curricula of our schools? For an insider's view, I spoke with PJ Caposey, principal and assistant superintendent at Stillman Valley schools in rural Illinois. PJ is the author of Teach Smart and winner of the 2013 Outstanding Young Educator Award.

A MUST read!!!

 

Sridevi Parthasarathy's curator insight, November 20, 2013 8:43 PM

The most powerful thought this article provokes, is the need to empower children to feel independent and take pride in their ideas. Education is no longer about a tedious transfer of information but facilitating innovation in learning and debating differences. This will call for  a radical change in the way we view our education system, especially in India. We claim to mimic the traditional Gurukul system  which called for experiencing life while learning from it; but we go against every construct of experience and believe that recall of knowledge is way to suceed. The Social Media could contribute greatly in this process of debate, as long as we put in regulators to help people focus.
