Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners

Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners | ICT lessons | Scoop.it
While acknowledging that the whole concept of self-determination – or ‘Google
learning’ as it has been called, pejoratively, in certain circles – is fraught with the potential for missing the point, being distracted into rabbit warrens or just getting bad information, we would like to emphasise that this is only a potential.


===> Any learning theory is only as good as the way in which it is applied and worked through, and we have seen it produce highly successful results where correctly applied, in the right circumstances. <===


Watch this space for chapter and verse, as we will soon be publishing case studies of several recent programmes that feature high levels of learner self-direction.

Learners are changing, learning is changing – and heutagogy can give important clues about rebalancing the burden of responsibilities and permissions in an always-on, networked, instructorless, post-course world.

Heutagogia  e o olhar sobre a aprendizagem do século XXI:


1- protagonizar a própria aprendizagem

2- educadores mantem foco no processo de aprendizagem ao inves do conteudo

3- evita-se aprendizagem focada no educador 

4- migra-se para o "mundo da aprendizagem"

5- explora e aprende praticando auto escolha e acao auto direcionada

6- avancar alem da disciplina

Hackers are exploiting a security flaw in Microsoft PowerPoint to attack computer systems

 

Fortunately, the attack requires user interaction the attack requires user interaction, so you would have to consent to open the file containing an infected OLE object. So if you tried to download a PowerPoint file from the web, a display prompt would ask for download permission. Consent prompts are fairly common, however, so users might not even realize they're granting permission to an infected file.


As for now, Microsoft suggests users avoid opening any PowerPoint files from an untrusted source.

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing | ICT lessons | Scoop.it

These teachers see the internet and digital technologies such as social networking sites, cell phones and texting, generally facilitating teens’ personal expression and creativity, broadening the audience for their written material, and encouraging teens to write more often in more formats than may have been the case in prior generations.  At the same time, they describe the unique challenges of teaching writing in the digital age, including the “creep” of informal style into formal writing assignments and the need to better educate students about issues such as plagiarism and fair use.

While the rest of us were out building basic houses with Legos, 15-year-old Morgan Spence was hard at work using the iconic plastic blocks to replicate classic movie scenes.

The Scottish teen reportedly spent three weeks tirelessly recreating 15 different famous film scenes using only Legos and stop motion video. The resulting clip was made to promote "Brick City," a new book from Lego masterbuilder Warren Elsmorethat includes sets and movie posters from 60 iconic films -- built entirely from Legos, of course.

The Shift of the Role of the Teacher | ICT lessons | Scoop.it

We know today’s students will have to create their jobs, not look for jobs. They will compete with others around the globe. They will have jobs replaced by outsourcing and technology if their skills are easily replicated or duplicated.  To succeed, students will need creativity, communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and entrepreneurship.


They will need to be able to adapt to change, be resilient and able to work effectively in a variety of environments.

What is your PKM routine? | LEARNing To LEARN | eSkills

What is your PKM routine? | LEARNing To LEARN | eSkills | ICT lessons | Scoop.it

The most important aspect of PKM is that it is personal. In order to stick with a routine over time, people have to find what works for them. Blogging has been a core part of my sense-making routine over the past decade. When I conduct workshops, my primary aim is help others discover what works for them. I do not have a secret formula, only some general guidelines developed through experience, plus a lot of ideas and suggested areas to explore.

My colleague Jane Hart shared her daily PKM routine recently and it’s different from mine, which of course it should be.

Tamie Douglas's curator insight, October 1, 2015 1:33 AM

With the amount of different types of digital resources, websites and technologies, it is no wonder educators can be intimidated at the thought of introducing them into their classrooms. Building on their PKM is critical in staying relatively up-to-date with technology, devices, applications, blogs or blogging and websites. Developing a preference is only natural and will allow educators to be become more confident and knowledgable in a few of these technologies and delve deeper into their uses and capabilities, instead of just 'scratching the surface' of many.

Caveats: Students need to NOT be pressured into an economic mold—it destroys motivation , curiosity and love of learning (science shows that these are the basis for life-long mental resilience). People learn at their own pace and have individual processing modes. It is vital for our future to nurture instrinsic motivation in the next generation.

Quiçá as recomendações sobre video, posts, fotos, etc...

They can also be used for storytelling where students get to narrate a story drawing on a multitude of ready-made characters, or in the case of ESL/EFL students, be used to teach English. There are, in fact, several other ways to use comic strips in class and this post features some interesting samples.
