Cómo llevar a cabo el aprendizaje basado en problemas con las TIC

Cómo llevar a cabo el aprendizaje basado en problemas con las TIC | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Si tuviéramos que dar una definición sencilla de  lo que es el ABP (aprendizaje basado en problemas) nos quedamos con la que dio Barrows y Tamblin: "Aquel aprendizaje que resulta de un proceso de trabajo dirigido hacia la comprensión o resolución de un problema, siendo el problema el punto de partida del proceso de aprendizaje".


Via Gumersindo Fernández

Muchas veces hablamos indistintamente de aprendizaje basado en proyectos y de aprendizaje basado en problemas como si fuesen lo mismo; sin embargo, y a modo de puntualización, el aprendizaje basado en proyectos se trata de un modelo formativo cuyos fundamentos son los mismos que los del aprendizaje basado en problemas pero que tiene como finalidad el logro o fabricación de un producto final.

Lots of good content recycling tips here. I have taken not of the details and intend to apply them. You should too. Well done Kim and good comments from Jeff Domansky

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, January 9, 10:22 AM

This is what most content creators will do, recycle old content to produce new content from an older content that has been tweaked and modified. As an an active blogger, I do the same with great effect. The implications for educationists lies in their ability to re-visit old posts after a lapse of some time whereby they can tweak and retouch observations according to what they have done in class. It always makes sense to re-visit old content and see how this content can be made more relevant to existing trends. While recycling might be achieved through re-posting of content as it is, a more pro-active approach would be to consider changing the title, adding more content and in addition, making necessary changes and corrections to make 'Old content' more in line with the latest in the industry. No doubt it might be difficult for content creators to continue producing good content throughout, so it makes sense to try recycling older content.

Ivo Nový's curator insight, December 19, 2014 9:46 AM
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

When we started working on Scoop.it, we had a lot of questions on why we even needed tools for content curation. Some were questioning the purpose or the effectiveness of curation, others were convinced it was a valuable practice but challenged the need for a tool. "I don't need a tool to tweet links, right?" or what Julia McCoy refers to as Myth #10 in that great post. 


She does a great job debunking 12 misconceptions which are still quite common about content curation but which luckily are starting to die as content curation delivers more and more results and thanks to educational content like hers.

donhornsby's curator insight, December 20, 2014 7:55 AM

(From the article): Myth #7: You Aren’t a Thought Leader If You Use Third Party Content. Truthfully, I can see why digital marketers would initially think this. When I first heard of curating content, I thought the same thing. However, I quickly learned that this could not be further from the truth. Curating third party content actually does make you a thought leader for several reasons:

 

You show honesty: you show your audience that sometimes your influencers can write something or present something better than you. You can’t always be the best at everything, and that is OK.You can actually connect with said influencer by mentioning them on Twitter when you link to their article or content piece and get them to potentially follow you, thus building a very valuable connection.You build credibility with that third party source, and possibly attract more third parties that want to share the content that you create.Curating influencer content helps build your brand, which can lead to gaining a new audience that respects your thoughts.

As you can see, curating content does not make you take a backseat. It is an opportunity to build credibility with both your audience and your influencers.
