narative structures and codes - some great dot point information.

Aurion Learning's curator insight, August 2, 2013 4:38 AM

Claude Levi-Strauss was a social anthropologist who "found that stories that are told unconciously mirror the values and myths of a culture."

 

Storytelling is an effective way of communicating values and information.

Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners

Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners | iEduc | 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.

iPads in the Classroom - A Student's Perspective - Teaching with iPad

iPads in the Classroom - A Student's Perspective - Teaching with iPad | iEduc | Scoop.it
I had the opportunity to interview a Freshman student, Nick Boone (@2050TGOD) that I coincidentally met on Twitter. He saw a conversation that I was having with a popular YouTube personality, and gave his opinion on iPads in the classroom. I took this chance to contact him and ask if he would answer a few questions. He almost immediately agreed to the interview, which we completed via Google Docs just a matter of a couple hours. Nick had the opportunity to participate in a 1:1 iPad program at his high school in San Diego.

Works in many circumstances.  Dictate your essay or your shopping list too.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, November 16, 7:28 PM

The dictation tool on the iPad is a bit under-used. This might be part of the solution in encouraging reluctant writers to at least get their ideas out on paper before then editing the work.

Interesting Chart Integrating Maslow Hierarchy of Needs with Technology ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Interesting Chart Integrating Maslow Hierarchy of Needs with Technology ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iEduc | Scoop.it

Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is a motivational theory developed by the renowned psychologist and humanist Abraham Harold Maslow (April 1, 1908 – June 8, 1970). Being disappointed by the behaviourist theories of the day that primarily focused on the study of problematic behaviour, Maslow took a different turn and did in-depth studies on the motivational part of the human conduct. He explored areas responsible for driving people's behaviour and happiness. For Maslow, any behaviour is a complex act that aim at the achievement of a certain goal. Human beings are goal oriented and as such they tend to channel their behaviour according to the motivational need underlying it.

 Source: http://goo.gl/jssrJ0

In a paper called Theory of Human Motivation (1943), Maslow conceptualized a hierarchy of needs pyramid composed of five interrelated levels. He mapped out the human needs according to their corresponding level. At the bottom of the pyramid are the basic physiological needs such as the need for food, air, sleep, and water. Next comes the safety needs that include things such as security of employment, health, property..etc. The third level embeds the belongingness needs that include love, friendship, intimacy and family. Further up the pyramid is the esteem needs that relate to things such as confidence, achievement, self-esteem, and respect. At the top of the pyramid is self-actualization which is the highest complex need that that has to do with one's self-fulfillment, creativity, innovation, personal growth...etc.

These five levels of need are organized along a continuum of  developing complexity  starting with the basic physiological needs,  to social needs ( belongingness and esteem) to the higher need self-actualization. Maslow argues that for us to achieve higher order needs such as esteem and self-actualization, we definitely need to meet the basic or deficiency needs.As is the case with any behaviouristic theory, Maslow Hierarchy of Needs has some far reaching echoes in the education field. It helped educationists and pedagogues better understand and explain why students behave the way they do. But this theory has also its share of criticism. However, it is beyond the scope of this short article to talk about them here. I would rather refer you to the links below.

After this short refresher about Maslow's theory of needs, I want you now to have a look at this wonderful chart created by Anthony VonBank in which he integrated technology with Maslow's five level needs. For each of the needs category, Anthony came up with a set of technological needs that go with it. Read on to learn more about this " Technology Hierarchy of Needs".

A good story can make or break a presentation, article, or conversation. But why is that? When Buffer co-founder Leo Widrich started to market his product through stories instead of benefits and bullet points, sign-ups went through the roof. Here he shares the science of why storytelling is so uniquely powerful.
