Education 3.0: Embracing Technology to 'Jump the Curve' | Innovation Insights |

Education 3.0: Embracing Technology to 'Jump the Curve' | Innovation Insights | | Education | Scoop.it

 

Education 3.0 is what I believe we can aspire to so as to educate our students, at all levels, in ways that actually promote 21st-century skills and prepare them for the jobs of tomorrow (aka, the jobs that don’t exist today but which will be required in the future). It’s the coming together of creativity, outcomes, critical thinking, big data, personalization, and much more.

 

For me, it’s really the confluence of three crucial education elements: Neuroscience, Cognitive (Learning) Psychology, and Education Technology.

Gust MEES's curator insight, September 25, 2013 7:35 AM

 

And it’s that last point that we need to deal with effectively, if we want to get to Education 3.0. We have to learn how to embrace technology as the ultimate empowering agent, not as a competitor or loss-of-control agent. We have to start including social networking in our learning environments so as to connect students to peers, instructors, other subject matter experts, content, and more.


We need to start measuring more of the appropriate behaviors and elements of cognition to provide rich, meaningful learning analytics. (Note – this doesn’t mean measure what’s easiest or available, but what matters.

Juana Hajek's curator insight, April 25, 2014 12:17 AM

A robust education using technology tools will help students meet all of the standards which were written by the International Society for Technology in Education.  The use of iPads in the classroom is one way this can be achieved.

The concept of special education

The concept of special education | Education | Scoop.it
Special education teachers teach students who have physical or mental disabilities and thus have special needs.

 

Special education teachers teach students who have physical or mental disabilities and thus have special needs. They are a lifeline to children with special needs since children with special needs are constrained in their learning process because of their disabilities. It is just because of the special education teachers that they acquire the basic skills in education and life overall, and may learn to live independently. Special education teachers adapt the general education curriculum to suit the unique needs of each student. 


Thus, special education is a lifeline for those students who have special needs. They personally take care of the special needs of the students by modifying or changing the curriculum accordingly to the extent of disability, wether mild or moderate. With students having severe disabilities, they tend to teach such students basic skills so that students with disabilities can lead their lives independently and teach them basiccommunication skills and mathematics. 

Special education teacher assess the strengths and needs of each student and set their teaching goals accordingly. They help develop Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), which outlines the kind of education each student with special needs will receive. Special education teachers need to be calm, patient, organized, inspiring and accepting. Special education students can come with a varying degree of disabilities and from various backgrounds.

Special education teachers, hence, have to be understanding and have very effective communication skills, as special education students have difficulty in conveying their needs and ideas. Special education teachers help the students with special needs to feel comfortable in social situations and be aware of socially acceptable behaviour. 

Preparing the special education students for life after school is an important part of the work of special education teachers as they teach their students some basic skills which help them to live independently. Thus, special education teachers are doing a great service to the nation by catering to the needs of students with disabilities and help them live a near normal and dignified life.

It is great to have special education teachers and you can't thank them enough for the job they do in turning around somebody's life. Education is a big part of kid's future, and special education teachers give everyone a fair chance to succeed in life.

Luke French's comment, May 11, 2014 9:07 PM
Special education teachers are, as Michael said, invaluable. These teachers make nigh-unfathomable differences in these children's lives, and, in my opinion, do not receive due credit.

What is Education 3.0

Education 3.0 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

may not meet Wikipedia's general notability guideline . reliable, secondary sources about the topic. If notability cannot be established, the article is likely to be merged, redirected, or deleted. (September 2009)

Education 3.0 is a term that has been used to describe a level of transformative capabilities and practices for education in the 21st century.

 

Professor Derek Keats, of the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa,[1] and his co-author Jan Philipp Schmidt, FreeCourseWare Manager at University of the Western Cape, South Africa, used the term in 2007 to apply to the use and impact on education of collaborative and personalized learning, reusable learning content, and recognition of prior learning (RPL) whether by formal or informal means.

 

Keats' explorations were focused on higher education.[2] Dr. John Moravec at the University of Minnesota broadens this view, and describes Education 3.0 as a product necessary to support what he labels "Society 3.0" - a near future paradigm of social co-constructivism, ambient technology, and propelled by continuous innovation at all levels of society.[3]

The future is here - practical ways to integrate Augmented Reality into the classroom.

Keaton Toscano's curator insight, March 12, 2014 10:59 AM

I can't wait for augmented reality (AR) to make its way into the classroom. Not only could it provide a visceral visual aid to students who are struggling with a concept, but it's also just plain cool. You want to take your students on a field trip to the louvre in art class, but lack the funding? Do you want to (pseudo)Literally put your engineering students into their CAD structure? When film first came about, people didn't have to worry about wading through crowds to be in the front row at a public speech, they would just watch it later from the camera's perspective. The same idea is happening here. Now you can put on a helmet, be in a different world for a fraction of the cost, have an, arguably, more fulfilling experience and do so for a fraction of the cost. Schools + AR? Count me in.

Juana Hajek's curator insight, April 25, 2014 12:09 AM

A list of activities which can be done with or without devices is included in this article.  Many of the activities (such as the virtual field trip) are to be used with a device.
