10 tendencias para a aprendizagem mista

Minha tendencia favoita  é :

Aumentar o engajamento e motivacao do aprendiz.

Leonard Waks's curator insight, November 16, 2014 1:20 AM

Of these 10 proposed drivers, I an guessing that the most important will be #5 and #6. At least for the time being, universities are really strapped for funds. Consider for # 5 a 'MOOC-Based wrapped course' where a prof assigns a MOOC as homework, and then  meets with the class one day a week = and follows up with a couple of weeks of class time at the end for projects and examinations. This strikes me as a  good division of labor in many courses - letting the high production videos do what they do best and the prof do what demands a human mind and heart for problem solving and coaching and mentoring. It can reduce faculty time by more than 1/2 without loss of quality. Now for #6, consider a group of twenty faculty members teaching wrapped courses based on the very same MOOC. They will have many questions and concerns and they can (a) find each other and (b) address them collectively through their learning network. The only other 'driver' that floats my boat at this point is #3. Many students like MOOC-based courses. The lectures are excellent and fit conveniently into schedules, and the professor is available to serve his or her most important functions. But I wouldn't oversell this. Many students still prefer day to day hand holding and may actually need it from a socio-emotional perspective to stay engaged in the course. So I'm betting on #5 and #6 as most important.

Becky B's curator insight, May 20, 2014 11:09 AM

Students with autism can miss social cues and sometimes not know that they’re being bullied, so they often benefit from guidance in things like how to interpret facial expressions and body language or how to recognize sarcasm or insincerity.  
 

But what about “neurotypical” kids? An article on EDWeek.org, “Autism Issues Complicate Anti-Bullying Task,” reports that “while social-skills training is commonly a part of the individualized education program, or IEP, for students with autism, such instruction should not be limited just to them.”

The premise of the book, now widely accepted, is that raw intelligence alone is not a sure predictor of success in life.


A greater role is played by 'softer' skills such as self-control, self-motivation, empathy and good interpersonal relationships.

I really like this article it is made in such a way that it is easy to understand. I really like how it has a lot of good information. For example some great facts in the beginning and demographics as well. What I really like and what I think a lot of people like to know are the causes of ADHD and and some of the symptoms of it as well which this article has. It is a really good kind of article for people who don't know to much about this to get some good basic information. I also really enjoyed reading about the myths about ADHD and especally the famous people that have it as well how awesome is for inspiration!

The Power of Visual Content

The Power of Visual Content | Inclusive education, VET and Online learning and Leadership | Scoop.it

If you are feeling like you are drowning in content, it’s because you are! The world’s information is currently doubling every two years, giving us access to more data, facts and stories than ever before. And, thanks to our smartphones, tablets and the Internet, we are constantly receiving, analyzing, sharing and creating even more information. But, as content marketers, how do we ensure that our content can break through this sea of information? We can by embracing visual content.

 

Why create visual content? Visuals aid in decision-making and are more persuasive and make a better, longer overall impression than simple text. Consider these facts:

90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual. Visuals are processed 60,000X faster in the brain than text.60% of consumers are more likely to click on a business whose images appear in search results67% of consumers consider clear, detailed images to carry more weight than product information or customer ratings

According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary, the meaning of empathy is “the experiencing as one’s own of the feelings of another” a great tool to have in your toolbox for success. 


When I taught first grade several years ago, the one rule in my classroom was the golden rule; treat others the way you would want to be treated. This translates to putting yourself in the other person’s shoes.   Easy for most to grasp; however, for those with various isms, not so easy.  This concept can be taught cognitively to those with social cognitive deficit disorders...

Passion at Work: Cultivating worker passion as a cornerstone of talent development

Passion at Work: Cultivating worker passion as a cornerstone of talent development | Inclusive education, VET and Online learning and Leadership | Scoop.it
Up to 87.7 percent of America’s workforce is not able to contribute to their full potential because they don’t have passion for their work. Less than 12.3 percent of America’s workforce possesses the attributes of worker passion. This “passion gap” is important because passionate workers are committed to continually achieving higher levels of performance. In today’s rapidly changing business environment, companies need passionate workers because such workers can drive extreme and sustained performance improvement—more than the one-time performance “bump” that follows a bonus or the implementation of a worker engagement initiative. These workers have both personal resilience and an orientation toward learning and improvement that helps organizations develop the resilience needed to withstand and grow stronger from continuous market challenges and disruptions.

How do sports and video games teach kids to be empathetic?


Video games and gaming are great motivators. Games can also be a rewarding activity for social and mental well-being. Healthy Minds Canada (HMC) has developed a prototype for a new mobile game, designed to develop empathy and improve life skills in young gamers (aged 9-16).  HMC believes that in order to promote a more understanding culture and to stop bullying, improving empathy is essential in de-stigmatizing all mental health issues and changing users’ off-line behaviour.

Danger of Hierarchy in a Fast-Moving World

Danger of Hierarchy in a Fast-Moving World | Inclusive education, VET and Online learning and Leadership | Scoop.it

The basic strength of hierarchies is that if they are designed well -- the departments/silos make sense in light of your business strategy and your competition, there aren't too many levels, the rules that accompany the hierarchy are smart and sensible -- hierarchies can be an incredibly efficient and reliable way to get work done. In fact nobody has found a more efficient and reliable way.

 

The problem is that hierarchies change slowly to changing conditions, to new rapid-fire strategic challenges, to technological discontinuities. They're not agile, they can't jump to the left or to the right quickly. In today's world you have to be fast and agile, but you also have to be efficient and reliable.

 

So the problem is that a well-designed hierarchy is still needed but it's insufficient. You need two systems, one that can handle speed with agility, and one that gets the work done today with quality and efficiency. And the two have to work together hand in glove.
